I took a walk on the wild side. I fell hook, line, and sinker for the ‘New Age Spirituality’ movement. I was sure the grass was greener on the other side, mostly it had more manure over the top of it. Some of it was filled with a lot of fluff and feel good stuff too. Mostly it was filled with empty promises, because evil can disguise itself as something fluffy or greener. Watch what you’re stepping in, it might appear greener at first glance, and sometimes you need hip waders, just saying.
About 4 years ago I started my move. I was being guided back to the Catholic Church. Once I began moving away from the ‘New Age’ stuff and back towards Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ it seemed like the battle was on! Some days I took two steps forward and other days I took two steps back. Yet momentum was building for that forward push. Then one day I did it. I broke free, breaking through the jail cell I had found myself in. Funny I had a dream about that years and years ago. I dreamed that I broke out of a jail cell and ran away. As I started to get away I was afraid they (whoever they were in the dream) would come after me, then I remember thinking that no one would recognize me anymore because I changed so much. Once again I have changed or maybe I didn’t change, maybe I’ve just gone back to who I really am, a Child of the One True God, and living that through the Catholic religion, my home. It’s been a strange and tricky battle fighting against the forces of evil, but I’ve had lots of people praying for me. I thought I was already ‘saved’ because ya know, I was going to help ‘save’ the world. Truth be told, it was about time I actually put on the armor of God and stopped dancing around.
Today I’m going to leave you with this, because I was guided to some awesomeness for #BibleVerseOracle for us today.
You’ll notice on the top of the first photo above the double digits of 33 and 8:22.
John 3:3 ~ Jesus answered and said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.” But let’s continue with verse 4 & 5 Nicodemus said to him, “How can a person once grown old be born again? Surely he cannot reenter his mother’s womb and be born again, can he?”Jesus answered, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit (baptism covers that)
Matthew 8:22 ~ And Jesus said to him, “Follow me, ….
Yep, I’m going to leave that right there.
Grace be with you on your journey
