On my spiritual journey I try to reflect on things that can advance my growth. Today I was on the plane on my journey back from the Soul Purpose jump off event in New York, I was reflecting on what a wonderful event it was. The faces of the women and men were just beautiful and thoughtful and positive. I felt honored to be in their presence. I felt light and warm and comfortable and un-complicated.
In my devotional book the readings for this week are about loving thy neighbor, sabbath and appreciating the things that are good in your life. It is a reflection on the belief that when God created differents elements of the earth he paused and said "It was Good". My devotional encourages us to pause and reflect on the things that are good in our lives; to appreciate them and be grateful for them.
I believe that Soul Purpose is a good thing. I believe that our Soul Purpose community is a good community; I believe that our vision and mission are good ones.
I pray for God's blessings on this community, that it will continue to be a good things.
there are a few passages of scripture on the bottom of this post to reflect on.
What is good in your life? What are you grateful for?
The Beginning 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 Now the earth was [a] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." 7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. 8 God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.
9 And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.
31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
