Greetings,

I want to share my experience after writing to Jay (on skeptics corner) early this morning. I am not sure if I can. Sleep resisted my intention and I was conversing with God though I would not say I initiated the transaction, unless unwittingly, by my message to Jay.

I recalled the idea of joy experienced in heaven by one sinner who repents. Then I recalled an idea of the receipt of worship in Paradise (turning on lights for some duration?). And it occurred to me that a portion of worship is telling one's story of what great things God has done in one's life and how dependable He absolutely is, and more so, when the story is combined with broadening thanksgiving for the extents He goes to in accomplishing such a service (work) in us, and, for us.

I cannot say this complilation of thoughts has never occcurred before. But rather, they combined in a new depth of understanding and I was uplifted and experienced joy in knowing my thanksgiving was received.

And in lieu of sleep, I was somehow refreshed. I am again thankful for you all and for how wonderfully the Father of all goodness, the Son of truth and mercy, and the beautiful Spirit work together to enlarge our understanding and to bring us to Himself, and together.

teresa

That's almost what I was going to say. Only Better! :smile:

That's sweet Teresa. Thank You for sharing that joy you and God share with us. And Thank you for sharing with Jay. Your blessing is ours also.

God's Love be with you Teresa. I'm always moved by the stuff you and Rick and so many others share here.

It is uplifting. :-)[/b]

p295:1 26:9.3 The test of time is almost over; the race for eternity has been all but run. The days of uncertainty are ending; the temptation to doubt is vanishing; the injunction to be perfect has been obeyed. From the very bottom of intelligent existence the creature of time and material personality has ascended the evolutionary spheres of space, thus proving the feasibility of the ascension plan while forever demonstrating the justice and righteousness of the command of the Universal Father to his lowly creatures of the worlds: "Be you perfect, even as I am perfect."

It is difficult to share my religious experiences with other humans. I have found that only in moments of testimony could I hope to convey the actuality of the impact God has had on my human experience. But moreso, I wish to have harmonious moments with other humans, that we may all worship Him Who Created Us in concert with the spiritual agencies given unto the custody and progress of this world.
