I find my spiritual inspiration in all places. I believe that the Spirit of God speaks through every possible channel and cannot be limited by tradition, religion, or medium. When I found out that there was such a thing as an “Interfaith” minister, I thought, “If there ever was a title that fit my “spiritual role” in this life, then that is it!”
One day, many years ago, I was looking for something to watch on TV and heard this very funny sounding woman who was obviously a televangelist. Christian TV ministers had never interested me before, but something compelled me to watch her. No one could have been more surprised than me to find myself really interested in her message.
I have listened to Joyce Meyer off and on for many years. I love her very real messages…she tells stories from her own experiences and life. I don’t believe in a literal interpretation of scripture, nor do I think that one path is right for everyone, so there are points where she and I do not agree, but her practical messages for living have been so helpful. One day, I caught a radio broadcast of hers and she was saying, “This may not be a new lesson, but it is a now lesson.” I thought that was great.
There are only a few spiritual themes running through life: Take care of yourself and your world, live everyday to the best of your ability, appreciate, relax, be open (mind and heart), do good work, be teachable, ….what they all boil down to is Love…doing everything with Love. How many ways can this be said? Sometimes I wonder, as I write a post, if I am repeating myself. …or if I have actually posted a video of photograph before…and then the words of Joyce come into my head…maybe this is a now message.
Someone who subscribes to this blog, sent me a video a while back. I cannot remember who that was…I hope that I thanked you! It is a wonderful story of love. (Bella and Tara!)
