OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN……..My Father in Heaven……. Adopted by Him and loved.
On the first day of January I was fortunate to hear a wonderful prayer guidance teaching about the Lord’s Prayer. I had heard some before but it seemed to be emphasising that in 2018 we must realize that Christ’s death on the Cross and His Resurrection mean that we NOW have full access to the Father in the status of His Children. Therefore praying the Lord’s Prayer (on a daily basis …..should provide us with ALL we need to STAND in midst of the turmoils in which we live.). Most of us have accepted this prayer as a rote prayer…..we all know it. We can recite it probably in our sleep or under water BUT……….The 7 steps (God’s perfect number) to the Lord’s Prayer can make it a daily discipline of tremendous enrichment and ‘connection’ with the Divine.
Step One.…… Knowing where He is and where you are in relationship. My Father, who is in heaven…..not here on the earth, among all the ‘stuff’. But, in a Holy Place. I have access to talk to YOU there because of blood shed for me at Calvary. .Abba, My Father……with gratitude of heart because I am your Child. With certainty that Heaven is open to hear me……I come……..I…..Come!
Personally , I need to be reminded and refreshed by the seven steps so Mid-week for seven weeks this will be my something to think about spot.
Blessings and Grace to you each one on your individual journey.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
