Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 03/30/2017

On Sunday April 2nd the Lenten Focus is “The Overcomer.”  When Jesus the Master Teacher was preparing his disciples for his departure from their lives he stated to them:  “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble – but take heart – I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33.   A few days later he was crucified.

Have you ever wondered what Jesus was really talking about?  It would seem to the unenlightened observer that the world overtook him.  So what was he speaking of when he stated, “I have overcome the world?”  

I affirm you will join us on Sunday as we discuss what it means in each of our lives to be an overcomer.  My definition is simply, “an overcomer is a person who rises in vibration above those things in the world that would pull us down”.  How do we “Be in the world but not of it?”  How do we be the compassionate and loving people without allowing the things we see and experience to pull us into negative energies? 

Jesus the Master Teacher used the method of “looking up”; he allowed not only his gaze to rise but also his thoughts to rise above the situation.  “What is really going on here?” and  “What is my role here?”

·         An Overcomer is one who recognizes the truth of their being.  

 “I am a divine child of God.”

·         An Overcomer recognizes that everyone else has that same divinity whether they know it or not. 

 “Made in the image and likeness.”

·         An overcomer is one who demonstrates divine universal laws in their day to day lives.

As I give so shall I receive.”

·         An overcomer believes that the number one thing to overcome is their own error thought.   

  “Thoughts in mind reproduce after their kind.”  

·         An Overcomer makes the decision to rise in personal vibration even when it is hard.

“It’s all about perception.”

 

When we accept the fact that we are an overcomer, we will never settle for anything less than a miracle.  The miracle may be for us or for another.  The definition of a miracle is a change in perception. 

What perception are you willing to change to be an overcomer? 

Namaste’
Rev. Denise



Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 03/23/2017

Sunday’s focus is honoring the Sabbath as a part of the Lenten process.  The scriptures tell us we live and move and have our being in the energy that is God the Divine Creator of the Universe.  If that fact be true then ‘Keeping a True Sabbath’ is about aligning our Body, Mind and Spirit to the energy that is alive within and all around us.   
 
So I ask you, do you use your prayer and meditation time to align with that energy — or — do you use your prayer and meditation time to go to the ocean with a teaspoon hoping that you will be able to hold onto every drop? 
 
We can break through to a blessed life when we take time every day, week, month to reset our breath and align our Minds our Bodies and our Spirit to the one presence and the one Power.  When we do just that, it is the Christ within who does the work.
 
Sunday we will be looking at The Prayer of Jabez and how a man that was experiencing pain and sorrow, totally turned his life around with a specific prayer created to align his energy to the flow.  The awesome Voices of Unity will be sharing music.  I have also been told that Jamie, Sherrie and Denise (who ever that might be) will be sharing some “Freedom” with all of us. 
 
“I lived my life for many years from a place of doubt and fear – then I remembered who sent me here and I embraced my freedom.”   Judy Blackwelder
 
“Freedom — We’re talking ‘bout Freedom”.
