truthful perceptions: purpose…

IMG_2916

LONGSUFFERING: The etymological history of this word dates back to biblical times and was used most prevalently during the 1600’s in England. Its conventional translation lends itself to the spiritually genetic trait of “Godly Patience”, of which is in and of itself is greater and ultimately more rewarding than human patience.

This genetic trait of GOD calls upon us to raise our level of self-perception equivalent to the pureness of how Almighty GOD sees us. Should we be honestly convicted within ourselves to make our tomorrow’s into what we envision today, this genetic trait of Godly Patience/longsuffering must be intrinsically included in our arsenal of victorious faith.

GENTLENESS: “What considerations we may bear, in rightful efforts be sincere; should armor or might fail the day, let gentleness win, through what we speak, what we talk and what we pray…”

No effort of future success will come to pass without a continuous examination of one’s self. We must be as the surgeon’s hand with skillful precision, and yet as considerate and gradual as the Word of GOD.

This spiritual genetic trait is sublime as it calls not just for the passion of our goal to be evident, but also the “compassion” required in consistently employing love into our labor, and subsequently our labor will demonstrate the commensurate gentleness of the same love we’ve put into it.

truthful perceptions: principles…

DSC_0006

LOVE: By what parlance has this word through the ages been used and abused, politicized & proselytized, resigned and reserved by those whose hearts were either sincere and contrite, or scandalous and ill willed. Through JESUS Christ we have the personification of GOD’S love to behaviorally guide us through every challenge  life brings before us.  

JOY: Is it not written that within this spiritual genetic trait is our strength in, of and through the Lord? Go into your labor of dependable time working with intense deliberation on your passion using this attribute to leaven your bread. Allow this attribute, this wonderful fruit of the spirit to mitigate anxiety and properly dissipate fear from your heart, mind and soul.

PEACE: Through the journey of discovery it is essential for your mindset to remain focused on GOD. This indispensable protocol of spiritual genetics denies the invasion of your mind from distractions and protectively envelopes the soul, making it impervious to the spirit of depression. The scriptures exhort us to practice and believe;

“I will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee”.

Therefore it is imperative to know that as you keep your mind on, in and with GOD during your process of creation, GOD has His Spirit immersed in, of and throughout the process of your creation. Stay Blessed, Peaceful & Anointed. IJPN ~ IN JESUS Precious Name.

truthful perceptions: impact…

IMG_3502

It is to the expectation of God’s daily delight that we would earnestly seek through sacrifice, devotion and dedication to replicate the mind of JESUS. For in so doing we are of one mind distinctly innate to one core set of values based on the precepts, principles and edicts of His message of love.

Yet, we must allow this love to be seasoned fluently with humility to the edifying of one another through encouragement and support of what goals and talents we each possess for the greater good of the whole. This notion does not call upon us to negate nor deny our own individual abilities, but rather seek to affirm our own God-given inner knowledge that we are neither forgotten nor set aside in God’s eyes.

For His Word say’s that He will never leave us nor forsake us-1 Kings 8:57. This practice of lifting up each other higher than our self is for the benefit of the greater mind of God to unfold the mystery of His Will towards us. By loving our neighbor as we love our self, the ensuing equation is harmony, justice and respect for every one in the community of humanity.

This attitude slowly absorbs us into that spirited mind of Christ we seek. An arrogant mind surveys the landscape seeking what minds it contrives as weaker than its own, in order to indignantly dominate through insidiously demanding, what can you do for me?

Whereas the Christ-centered mind will always endeavor upon what things it must and can do unto others as the servant of God.

Neither sheepishly or in subservience to man but rather, in a dignified contemplation of transforming, that which is evil to make good, that which is abhorrent to make pure, and that which is of none effect to glean enlightenment, in truthful knowledge of their value in order to make a positive impact.

truthful perceptions: vanity…

IMG_3502

Vanity provides only a bandage, never a cure. Any attempt to procure healing from its wings are fleeting for it contains no substance conducive to restoration, no intrinsic remedy to improve, nor any ingredients to mend the heart to procure true forgiveness unto itself.  

The absence of vanity leads to the essence of compassion, which is the inheritance and importation of wisdom. No man cometh unto the Father, but through JESUS. For the heart of Christ cannot go against itself and in this manner truly sifts and searches the human heart coming unto God for humility and the absence of pride and vanity necessary to be in the presence of God.

Vanity in the human heart has paved the way for countless souls to create the very hell of their day-to-day reality. Much worse to those who never learned the lesson of obedience before going to their graves or were prematurely brought there resulting from the very vanity that plagued their lives.

In studying the Heart of Christ we see that JESUS neither displayed nor possessed one iota of vanity, but instead frequently taught about the dangers of both riches and idolatry, summarily contradicting the plethora of prosperity preachers on the scene today.

Pursuing the heart of Christ reveals the true riches God would have us to abide in and rely upon. The wealth of a rich man is his strong city, yet it is the meek which shall inherit the Earth. Cities fall and eventually crumble to dust, but the Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. The things of vanity may thrive for the temporary things of glory, but possessing the heart of Christ leads to a peace that passes all understanding.

truthful perceptions: dreams

Russel-147

A dear friend asked the question where would you like your dreams to take you this week. In light of the organized chaos the world is currently in, this is what came to me:

I would like my dreams to take me to a place of enlightenment. A world where war is non-existent, cancer and all diseases were wiped-out long ago, politicians are extinct, love is mandatory, hate is quarantined and laughter has no cure.

A world where all children are trained to be as musicians, artists and dancers and all musicians, artists and dancers perform as freely joyous as children.

A world where the pursuit of money is pointless and gold has no value, but persons who employ charity, selflessness, respect and love are considered the wealthiest of all.

A world where nature knows no pollution in the waters or the skies; and where the oil of the earth remains in the ground and is not spilled into the seas;

A place where all women are loved as queens and not abused and all men are made kings by the peace we sing.

A place where animals are not endangered and guns were never invented; A world where the words genocide, racism, bigotry, slavery, sexism and jihad have never been seen before much less ever practiced;

A place where the tears of GOD flow because of the love we give to each other as a human family, and not the harm we do to one another because of ignorance and fear.

Well this is just a small portion of the dream of where I would like to be, but I guess I’d better wake-up to the nightmare of reality this present world is in.

truthful perceptions: victory

IMG_3466

Victory. “I have the victory…” is much more than a church cliché. It’s above and beyond bumper sticker status and it doesn’t come cheap. To put it bluntly, it’s the boundary line between your success in obtaining your fitness goals and repeated failure in giving up, once again.

Your victory is not determined by how early you get up in the morning, but rather your convicted discipline in getting to bed at the same time every evening in supplying your body ample rest and rejuvenation.

Your victory is never to be acquired by consuming acidic drink’s, sugary foods, sodium filled meals or clandestine visit’s to McDonald’s because you believe no one is looking.

Your victory is measured by persistence and determination to practice proper rest, proper nutrition and proper exercise. Discipline is the price we pay for the dynamic of a healthy lifestyle. That above everything else is what defines our victory.

Not the completion of a goal, but the continuation of building on the success the pursuit of that goal brings to us. The victory is always in learning how to enjoy the journey, more than the destination.

There is no death to ever acknowledge, but rather the revealing of the remarkably renewable spiritual, mental and physical you, who is able to love-God-through-loving self and unveiling the inner workings of all you were created to be, one workout at a time…..in Victory.  Love All-Ways & Keep Looking Up.

truthful perceptions: stress

IMG_3474

Through some quite accessible internet research I’ve found there are 15 serious debilitating consequences to living stress filled lives. 1) Lower immunity to disease 2) Weight loss/gain  3) Decreased ability to heal 4) Depression 5) A decreased need for new experiences 6) Hair loss 7) Poorer functioning of internal organs 8) Living in survival mode 9) Increased chance of miscarriage 10) Infertility 11) Inability to sleep 12) Heart problems 13)  Muscle pains 14) Emotional imbalances/phobias/anxieties and last but not least Diabetes.

 Stress becomes negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation between challenges. As a result, the person becomes overworked and stress-related tension builds.

Until you can win the lotto or inherit Aunt Harriet’s fortune from her will, you need to find and practice the best stress-reducer for your longevity. There are many options, but none so holistic as a weekly regimen of fitness combined with a daily practice of spiritual renewal i.e, prayer, meditation, yoga, etc;..

This in and of itself combats all 15 maladies listed above and also keeps you mentally sharp and essentially prepared for the unexpected. As we all know, life is very good for throwing the unexpected at you.

Stay ahead of the curve. Gas up with wisdom and pump the brakes on the stressors of your life. Keep it all under control by lifting with love and staying pumped up and prayed up. Love Always & Keep Looking Up.

truthful perceptions: words

IMG_3499

WORDS

Words of the Soul forever compliment divine love to be universal; The Soul knows that truth seeks no corners to hide and it never grows old;

Truth may always be blamed, but it can never be shamed; It may suffer from neglect and a lack of honorable Men to lift it up, but it will never perish;

Evil men may seek to darken the truth but they can never extinguish it, for sooner or later truth always comes to light; If truth it doesn’t come out in the wash, it will come out in the rinse;

So let the words of your Soul always pray to GOD in truth; Speak to Men as Brothers in integrity and communicate with Women as Sisters we cherish with respect and sincerity;

Deceit may hide in honey sweetened words, but the truth shall always set you free; Love Always & Keep Looking Up. IJPN ~ In JESUS Precious Name.

truthful perceptions: mind…

Russel-147

Christ came into the world to teach us how to think constructively. What is it that makes you strong? What pushes you to push on in spite of setback, disappointments and failures?

The mind can either be a place where you’re stressed-out, burned-out, flipped-out or turned-out. GOD gave us a precious mind to be in-service, not insane. To be of servitude to Him and not insanity through the world.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ JESUS. That we all speak the same thing with no divisions between us and that we are perfectly joined together in the same mind. For the Prince of Peace is our pattern of perfection, patience, power and persistence to succeed.

What makes you strong, blessed, wise, creative, resilient, loving and faithful? The answer is your beautiful mind.

GOD Bless You. Stay Encouraged. Love All-Ways & Keep Looking Up. IJPN.

truthful perceptions: courage

Russel-147

Praise GOD: Sometimes in life it’s better to be half of a lion than all of a lamb. If you’re growing roses in your life, you must not fear the thorns that may come along with them. Only your fears can hold you back from living your dreams, but your courage will always support your vision.

Don’t let the haters and those who are jealous of you stop your momentum. They are cowards who sneak closer to death everyday, while the brave live on. So take comfort, courage and confidence in all of your plans, because sometimes in life it’s better to be half of a lion, than all of a lamb. IJPN ~ In JESUS Precious Name.
