Spritual Riddle…I am the Greatest Spirit of All!

~Love Tames.  CordieB.

~Love Tames. CordieB.

I am kind and patient; not boastful or proud…

I am all knowing, yet humble; not boisterous or loud

I am secure in my stead; not untrusting or jealous

I keep no scores of bad deeds;  I’m forgiving….unrebellious

I am thankful for mine; of your’s I’m not envious

I don’t hold resentment to ferment my soul…

In-line with my spirit, it is compassion I hold!

I’m not judgmental; I allow others to be…

That which they are; so their souls might be free

Knowing we all are created from the same mighty force

Good, bad or indifferent; of the same Holy source!

I rejoice in the truth; refrain from deception…

Persevere with great hope, amid pain or rejection.

Not easily angered, remaining kind and protective…

Willing to look closely at life from another’s perspective.

I am the foundation of all Creation thereof…

I’m the most powerful, unfailing, Spirit of all

…I Am the Spirit of Love…

~Written by CordieB, Inspired by 1st Corinthian’s 13 and of course….. Love.

Quote for the Day:  When I was a child, I talked like a child; I thought like a child; I reasoned like a child. As I grew, I put childish ways behind me. Then I saw but a poor reflection, as in a mirror. Now I see face to face. Then, I knew only in part. Now I know fully and I am fully known.

And now these three remain…

Faith

Hope

Love

But the greatest of these is…

LOVE

~1 Corinthians 13, The Bible

Another Quote:  Knowing is realizing we don’t know it all ~CordieB.

Peace, Light and Love….

This Spirit Resides in God’s Grace and Self! Another Spiritual Riddle –

On the playground you would dare me to fall back into your arms;

But always you caught me in the nick of time from all harms;

I thought we’d be friends forever; I felt so safe and secure

But then one somber day, I wasn’t quite as confident and sure.

 

I looked around and it seemed you had passed me on by

I asked myself many times what did I do; was it I?

Seemed you’d snatched that security blanket away from my midst;

But I knew not why I had been so eagerly dismissed.

 

I did not realize that you were really still there. . .

But in a different aspect, for which I was not yet aware.

I grew into puberty still needing you; I craved for your being;

I became angry, sad, confused; emotionally fleeting and bleeding.

 

Indeed, there were instances where you might come back to me once more

But, I could not allow your presence to once again steal my joy;

I ran away each time I felt you were close on my heals. . .

I turned cold and hid my feelings with false smiles and ideals.

 

Then one day in June on a warm beautiful spring day,

You looked into my eyes and melted the icy fears away;

I thought you were all I needed and I gave into you once more . . .

We were one and mighty; to the top of the heaven’s we’d soar!

 

Then one amber evening as we were flying I smiled and looked around

And to my astonishment and dismay, you were not to be found!

Low and behold I quickly fell hard, straight back to the ground

In my fear to loose gravity – I became imperiously bound . . .

 

To certainties; no more would I venture my heart and soul

I thought I knew the meaning of life; I held tight all control!

I didn’t realize that you had never really left me completely;

But only changed forms; although disguised ever so discreetly.

 

I didn’t know that you changed forms to teach me the lessons. . .

In life that I needed to receive all the blessings. . .

that I would partake and share in the bounties and adversities

Of living, loving and giving of myself through all actualities.

 

But one sweet December, during a cold winter’s snow

I looked out the window and what would you know?

I saw in the glistening of the snow drifts so wondrously clear,

The tracks of your being, forever so near!

 

I looked at the tracks of my life in that opulent snow,

and for the first time in my life, I learned to let go!

I realized that through all challenges, I always survived!

You had always been there in one form or another as I thrived!

 

Who is this Spirit that changes with time?

Disguised in familiarity and strangers; bad and good times . . .

I realized that no matter what happens, I will go on

Although family, friends, or circumstances decide to move on . . .

 

I knew that this Spirit resided in God’s Grace and Love for Self

With strength and endurance, in spite of all else . . . .

I knew that no matter, I could always revamp–readjust

I’d finally embraced you wholly, you are . . . .  (Click below for Answer!)

I Experience and Express the power of Trust Because . . . I Put My Energy Behind the Things I Put My Trust In

cb042067.jpg

There are people who could be called Godless.  For them, God does not exist.  In fact, if you ask them, they might tell you that they are the only God they know or desire to know.  You might think of these people as do-it-for-yourselfers.  In themselves they trust.

Inspite of their lack of belief as far as God is concerned, these people lead normal, healthy lives.  You might even determine that many of them are quite successful in the worldly sense.  They are professionally stable and financially secure.  They have mates and are pretty decent parents.  They may even be loyal and trustworthy friends.  Although some of us would be horrified at the thought of trying to get by without some connection to God, so-called Godless people seem to make it through life fairly well.  In fact, some of them seem to make out a great deal better than the God-knowing, God-loving, God-fearing folks.

Whatever you put your faith and the energy of your belief into will work for you if you trust it to work.  Trust, not what you trust, or what you call what you trust, is the key ingredient.  If you believe in yourself, if you trust your judgement and back it up with your sincere energy and effort, chances are you will hit the bull’s-eye.  It would probably take a little pressure off you if you understood the concepts of grace, mercy, and the divine love of God.  You might have a lot less stress if you could lift your hands and voice every now and then just to say, “Thanks You!” for Divine order, Divine timing and Divine presense.  But none of this is neccessary unless you believe it is necessary.

Until today, you may have believed that, “In God I Trust” was a prerequisite to a successful life.  Just for today, allow yourself and others the freedom to choose the name of what they believe in.  Examine how you trust rather than the name you call what you trust. 

Today I am devoted to examining and exploring the energy I give to the things I trust!
