The Empowerment of God’s Love: Create a Life of Greater Joy and Peace
A Relationship to Psalm 23
Throughout different points in my life, including as a child, I believed that there is a “bigger calling” that most of us have and that we live this life, partly, to uncover and live out this calling, which is unique for us all.
Because of various spiritual experiences I had growing up, I felt that this “bigger calling” related, for me, as sharing the empowerments we are given through Divine Love. I rarely attended any one church consistently growing up, nor did I affiliate with any specific denomination, yet there was always a “presence” I felt, which called at me, for what I can only describe as “more.”
After a series of challenging experiences in my life, I was led to uncover what this “more” was—or at least I was starting to get a clearer glimpse of it.
UNCOVERING MY “MORE”
This “more” eventually manifested for me as being led to write two books back-to-back (within a period of a few months) on God’s love and the empowerments that are bestowed upon us.
Those two books became Love is the Seed: Teachings from the Spirit World and The Three Supreme Gifts: A Practical Approach to Self-Mastery and to Transforming Your Life Here and Now.
The Three Supreme Gifts provides a clear path and an in depth understanding of the three supreme truths introduced in Love is the Seed, which are love, thought and free will.
WHAT I DISCOVERED ABOUT THESE THREE SUPREME GIFTS
What I discovered as I pursued this path to understanding the three supreme gifts is that these gifts alone encompass all aspects of our life in a way that once they are understood, they can completely shift our life into the direct path in alignment with the light of love, grace, mercy and compassionate wisdom that is God.
THE THREE STORIES OF OUR LIFE
I often talk about how there are three stories of our lives: the story we write, the story being written through us and the story that we can co-write with God.
As a part of these stories, we have love, thought and free will, that together, empower us to create greater joy and peace for ourselves and to be of benefit to others.
What greater gift that God has given than to give us the empowerment to create a life of our choosing and be a support as our “Shepherd”.
EMPOWERMENT WITHIN PSALM 23
When I first came upon this particular passage in the Bible, Psalm 23, and read it line by line, I came upon the phrase “green pastures.” In my mind, I pictured a lush landscape of soft green vegetation.
Yet, what is interesting is that in much of the landscape in Israel, for example, where the shepherds are tending their flock, it is rare to see much of anything green, yet they call it “green pastures.” The symbology of these landscapes speaks directly to God’s love and guidance.
In the desert, it rains very little, yet just enough rain comes each year to allow handfuls of grass to grow sparsely through the rocks. As the shepherds lead their sheep through this landscape, they know that it will provide enough food for the flock.
What we can learn from this symbolic environment called “green pastures” is that the shepherd will always guide the flock to what they need for that moment—not some undefined time in the future, but for that moment, knowing too that wherever they go in the future, all will be provided for in the right way and right timing. Isn’t that how God works in our life as well?
As our Shepherd, we, too, shall not want. It is a beautiful passage that speaks to the very foundation of God’s love that guides us in our life, providing us what we need in the moment.
It is a passage that can encourage us to look at this very moment as a gift and not stress about what we may or may not get in the future. We can rest and relax in the knowing that God provides and is always our greatest guide.
Despite the fact that we are not sheep (sheep are not known as the smartest of God’s creations) we, too, need to have faith in and depend on the love, grace, mercy and guidance of God.
