When I look at this Master Piece my first thought is of Faith. The more we believe, the more easily we can overcome adversity. The mind either believes or is in a negative state of disbelief. There is no middle ground. As you can see, a painting truly does speak louder than words. “Art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes it visible.” Words alone are not enough. They cannot express what a Master Piece says to the inner-self.
Take that leap of Faith and put your trust in God and the knowing self within. Each Portal Card has its own way of speaking. When it is finished, the subject reveals itself with immense clarity. The inner-self never lies. It only knows and reveals the truth.

Portal Card Connection Introduction Story
Now before I begin I want you to please consider the fact that God works through all kinds of things in many different ways, just as the Bible states; "My ways are not your ways for “My ways are much Higher than your ways.” Every creation on earth was created through his influence. God wants His expression in the world but the world has put Him in a box and said this is your place. That is the main reason that the world is so out of whack. People make assumptions as to where God is or what He can do, or believe what somebody said 2000 years ago. God’s stuck in the box because the world has put limits on what He can do by rejecting his ability to move in creative forms. Luke 17; 21 “for, behold the kingdom of God is within.” God created Art, wouldn’t you agree? ” Creativity is the answer to understanding God’s will. Peter 4: 10 states that “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in all its various forms.” Creativity in godly ways is the answer to a better world. It is time to release the power of God in your life.
How the Portal Card work
The Portal Cards are very unique, a mirror for the magic of our knowing selves. They are a means of communication through the knowledge of our subconscious minds. Just as a painting says more than words, the Portal Cards trigger visions of truth as the art expresses itself. The card itself is three dimensional: think of each card as a frozen symbol, the ‘pearl’ at the bottom of each inspirational card is the first dimension representing the “Self”, the little self, ego-self, the higher transpersonal self, if you will. The definition of ‘pearl’ is; “one that is highly regarded for one’s beauty or value.” The one true value we possess is our “spirit within”. The second dimension is the ‘porthole’ itself, or “the means of transportation”. The definition of ‘portal’ is; “entrance, archway, gateway, opening.” A spiritual gateway, offered by God, into your “self.” The third dimension is the Spiritual Realm.
On the back of each inspirational card is its name. I have marked each quote Monday through Sunday. Don’t worry. I’ve made it simple. At the top of each inspirational card is a statement that says, “And God said—let there be a word for this day.” You don’t need to use this method. Personally I like reading them all when I truly need a word from God. But the real blessing behind this method gives God an opportunity to show you His hand daily. Trust me you will be more than satisfied with the way the Portal Cards work and God’s ability to use them. (That’s the salesman in me speaking.) But fortunately for me I don’t have to sell this, because this kind of stuff sells itself. No matter how you use these Inspirational Cards, they work. God said “My word will not return void.”
Stillness is the key
The first step to using the Portal inspirational card deck is to relax your mind and find stillness. Meditate for a few minutes before you draw your first inspirational card . Ask God for wisdom and understanding. After drawing the card or cards, sit in the stillness of meditation. This will help you find your way to your Spirit Man or Spirit Woman.
Don’t fear the Door…take God along
When entering a spiritual door take God along. If you are trying to be spiritual, be spiritual with God and say, “God give me wisdom and feed me insight through your many wondrous ways. Show me yourself as I walk in faith.” The object of the Portal Inspirational Cards is to enhance your prayer life and give you a more meaningful relationship with God. The art on the Inspirational Cards actually gives advice which will act as a guide in your quest for a better you, being confronted with a true reflection of what is hidden in yourself. It is my hope that these Inspirational Portal Cards will ignite your inner self and help you to draw on your own strengths, sense God’s constant presence, and experience peace, self-love and healing during the toughest of times. Good luck and have a happy journey. Your only quest now is finding the blessings that are hidden in the most unlikely places. Good finding; look and you shall see.
Jesus is our high point of creation, not excluding Him from any good work. We are meant to be creative in all forms of art using Jesus as our example. Christ’s sole purpose was to save the Lost. The wise man will use any means possible to achieve success. Does that make any sense to you? I know it’s going to be hard for many Christians to accept this concept, but the Portal Inspirational Cards were not designed for the Christian; they were designed to save the lost, and to introduce THE LOST to Jesus, The Savior of their immortal souls. The Christian people who are already saved may see and test the wonderful work of God’s hand in this art form! Where do I start as a convincing formula for you to understand? Ok, let me start with this: recovery is the process of finding the river and saying yes to its flow. We must settle ourselves by saying yes instead of no to opportunities. (This is starting to get good.) As we begin to pry ourselves loose from our old religious self-concepts, we find that our new, emerging self may enjoy all sorts of new and extraordinary adventures. This newly positive attitude is something that I like to call the beginning of trust…stepping outside of the box and capturing a better view. You must understand that every time we move into a deeper level of understanding there’s a period of confusion, but each difficult time is rewarded by a real expansion and deepening of awareness. Often a mystery can be very simple; to believe in God or in a guiding force because someone tells you to is the height of stupidity. We are all given senses with which to receive our information with. With our own eyes we see, and with our skin we feel. With our intelligence, it is intended that we understand. But each person must puzzle it out for themselves. The truth is already within. Let me show you something.
Solve This Equation.
Did you find any truth in this equation? These cards, yet with no words, can give a simple and clear insight that is easily expressed. Art does not reproduce the visible, rather it makes it visible. The truth of God’s power is apparent to all who have eyes to see. Some will understand more perfectly about the handiwork which brings us closer to Him. As the Bible states; “My hand laid the foundation of the Earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I call them, they stand forth together”. “The truth is already within.” When God speaks to you through “The Truth Card” He means you can see and feel me. “The Gain Card” means run to me now. “Hidden Enemy” means you’ve got the devil trying to stop and slow you down. And “The Forgiveness Card” means you ran a good race and you are covered by the blood of Jesus; you are forgiven.
In the ancient world the future was believed to be the providence of the divine. God knows what lies ahead and a human being can only gain such information from Him. The most famous type of prophecy was through methods of divination. Phenomena that were mainly focused on were random and beyond human control such as casting of lots and runes, special cards, tarot cards the position of planets and stars, the way an arrow falls and perhaps even the markings on the liver of a sacrificial animal. All were used as methods to provide the skill to control difficult situations and to interpret future events. That is where the idea of Astrology and the Tarot Cards got off track. God is a personal God speaking to you about yourself and the growth that you need, not predicting the doom of the world. Just be open to God and know that the message is for you, not someone else or what the world’s future might be. When God begins to speak to you giving you rich and enlightened thoughts, honor Him by letting go of your preconceived ideas; be still with a patient heart; write down all that He proclaims and so will you experience miracles.
You can be sure that the devil is going to bombard your mind and give you every excuse in the book. Do you really think God will take time for you? What makes you think you’re good enough? Let me clear up all of that right now. Don’t let that ding-dong (Satan) rob you of the truth and a wonderful friendship with an all loving God. Imagine how frustrating it is for God, with people blaming Him for every little thing. How would you feel if you were accused and misunderstood everyday by millions of people? God this and God that. People are so quick to judge, but yet have not taken the time to investigate the truth. Here is your chance to learn the truth. “Man’s mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions.”
Now imagine yourself as a spirit; what is your one and only GOAL? To be seen! This is one of those cases where—“Some things have to be believed in order to be seen.” I consider these Inspirational Cards as revealing sources to awakening intuition this way: The wisdom of the heart is a much higher guidance than the head. When one trusts God and looks to Him for understanding, a certain confidence in the invisible develops. This FAITH awakens the so-called sixth sense, intuition, or divine knowing. Through the power of intuition, man has direct access to all knowledge and the wisdom of God.
Has Christianity robbed God of something dear to Him? Yes, I like to call it His voice to the Lost.
It is not the concept of the tarot card that is bad, it is not applying the word of God or not using Jesus as a high point of creation that is bad. As the Bible states—“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit; for each tree is known by its own fruit.” Luke 6: 43-44
“A picture says a 1000 words; the only question is, “What words?”
After seeing some of these inspirational cards, I’m sure you will agree that they are Truth. Every piece of detail within the cards will speak to the 'spiritual' person as a picture of Christ. The quotes are just as powerful, but combined with the art of the inspirational cards, they give us a photo album detailing the work of Christ and the Spiritual Warrior. Here are two statements pertaining to the Bible and the Word of God. Quote—“Positive things happen to positive people” Quote—“Trying times are times for trying.” I would have to say that these quotes are the Words of God. Although you cannot find them in the Bible. My point is that there is more to God’s word than the Bible. Satan wouldn’t use those words of encouragement just as he wouldn’t design a deck of inspirational cards revolving around Jesus. The truth is right before your eyes; as the Bible says—“You will know a tree by its fruit.” John 3:21 “Whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”
People often say “there’s nothing new under the sun”, but yet the tarot card concept is both old-fashioned and uniquely new. This spiritual path has a history longer than that of Christianity The situation gets a bit easier to untangle in modern Inspirational Card Concepts because through the centuries there have been so many different cultures and languages. In the remarkable history of this faith the tensions between the churches have only caused a glimpse of the extensive Tarot Card Concept. By the beginning of the 20th century, the tarot card was a main focus for occult societies, but with my knowledge of the tarot card I would have to say that the occult was drawn by Satan to further discredit the tarot card decks and its subtle clues hidden in plain sight through the artwork. There is the possibility of endless insight, and wonder. Psalm 119: 130 “The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” God works through people; all art was created by Him and through Him. Every creation on earth was created through His influence. All persons write with the pen of memory on the parchment of pure conscience, scraped by the knife of divine fear, smoothed by the pumice of heavenly desires, and whitened by the chalk of holy thoughts. The ruler is the will of God.
All God’s creations come through His light unto a man
A scientific quote by Carlos Castaneda said, “In the universe, there is an immeasurable and indescribable force, which those who live of the source call intention…and that absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link.” He later went on to say, “The Sorcerers (the source or to be blunt, God) is not only concerned with understanding and explaining that link, but He is especially concerned with cleaning it of the numbing effects brought about by all of the concerns of living at ordinary levels of consciousness.” After reading this I sat and thought to myself; the real spiritual truth of this world will forever be established in the minds of men. When the World is ready for a certain truth, God will present it through the light of a man. Which brought me to the question? Is all creation taking part in God’s creation? The answer I found was “Yes”. As the Bible states; “I have created the world and the fullness thereof.” It is my belief that when God influenced man to be creative in an artistic form such as the Tarot Card Concept—it had its purpose then, and it most certainly has a purpose now. Try to see this view from outside the box. Art is a technique of communication and an image (such as an insightful painting) is the most complete technique of all communication. “The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.” This brings me back to the point at hand. When God has something he wants to share with the world he presents it through a man. Just because something is not completely right in the beginning doesn’t mean it will not evolve into something better. Think of it this way—“Although a piece of wood floating in a pond will not become saturated as quickly as a sponge, sooner or later it must give in to the penetrating power of the water.” God’s ideas are the same way. It may not be perfect at birth or at first insight, but through time and God’s influence it becomes greater. Now let me ask you this—would it make a difference if we renamed the Tarot Card? Let’s say we call them “The Great Creators Artistic Insight Deck”. Is that better? For many of you, no, because you cannot shake off your old beliefs and those beliefs are not even your own. We judge these artistic insights through the beliefs of others, disregarding them with blind eyes just because somebody 2000 years ago said “I don’t believe God can do that.” A vibration of such a negative mind is of no constructive value and can bring no joy or peace of mind to anyone. Jesus clearly states—“All things are possible to Him who believes.”
With the new age of positive thinking, Astrology, The Tarot Card Concept, Lots, Runes, etc, other such books are not the same as they were 15 years ago. They are very enriching in spirit and insights bringing bread to the eater. Positive thinking is the key to keeping the beast within at bay. Look at it as walking a big dog. Are you walking the dog or is he walking you. Are you overpowered by the dummy within? The Portal Cards will help, bringing all your wits as a result of seeing what the inner man sees through the Portal Card…insightful art messages. They may serve as a trigger telling you that the light of understanding is again available to you. The cards are perfect when you are confronted with a situation where you seem to possess limited or incomplete information.
The Portal Cards will help point your attention toward those hidden fears and motivations through artistic insight that will engine your inner man and bring out your Spiritual Warrior. These inspirational tarot cards can bring forth the seeds within, bearing much fruit through artistic insight and vision. Once you learn the Portal language and the artistic insight connections, you will develop an internal message system. These artistic insights can be very powerful. Once seen and recognized, these insights become absorbed into the realm of truth and serenity. In truth they enter into the realm of God through a part of your mind that isn’t yours. “The liberty of the truth within.” They actually mirror your subconscious mind which processes it and, instantly sends back the answer. They help direct your attention towards those inner choices that may be the key factor in determining your direction or what steps should be taken in order to avoid trouble. Whatever the problem may be, they work. Let the channel of God’s wisdom flow. We all know that we do not always hear God’s still small voice, but if we are sensitive to our inner guidance, it provides us with the intuitive knowing we require. The Portal Cards are going to help put you in touch with your own inner guidance, with a part of you that God established in you before you were you, the part of you that knows everything you need to know for your life. With their help you can locate the lost ground of timely right actions and to undertake the one activity that has no equal: Self-Change. If you are truly a Spiritual Warrior whose quest is doing battle with the Self, the one whose goal is self-transformation, it is my hope that these Portal Cards will serve you well.
“Do you know where you’re going?
The Portal Cards are actually gateways into other realms; some of these realms have higher costs. But with or without the cards you must still face your challenges. Think things out clearly. The portal can serve as a timely warning. For example:
As I was saying, each Portal should not be approached and passed through without contemplation. Think about the cost of what you have to lose or gain? Regardless of which way you chose, transformation guards the portal, looking out or looking in, coming in or going out. Oh, and while I’m thinking about it, there is no reason why you should resign yourself to disaster every time your card drawing indicates a problem. Don’t automatically resign yourself to fate, (Never.) Just wrestle it into the path that you so desire. Ask yourself—is this the door to my healing? Drawing the devil card; contemplation arises. This realm sucks. What am I doing wrong that keeps bringing me back here? What do I need to change in my life God? You know the truth when you see it. The Portal Cards work for those who are willing to work with them. They will help you open new doors to knowledge and adventure that will enrich your life in all dimensions. Just keep in mind that you are consulting with God, not having your fortune told. The Portal Cards are not meant to predict future world events. Trying to predict the future doom is an open door for the devil. God is a “One on One” God. He wants to work with you, helping you grow, so your spirit may not grow week and die. He does not correct us for His own purpose. It’s because we are on the wrong spiritual path that leads to doom.
The Portal Cards are going to help point out that fearsome beast that we are all so desperately in need to put into check, obedience training so to speak. It is that inner Spiritual Warrior who must be helped in order for Him to save us from ourselves. Your spirit man can win but he can’t do it alone. The constraint required for the knowledge of these pages was certainly not without pain. The work itself has been a source of transformation in my own life. By practicing self-control you automatically embark on the path of a Spiritual Warrior. Self control isn’t easy as we all know but it is available to all who are willing to undergo its hardship. All being worth it of course, overcoming all weaknesses and free from anxiety, unconcerned with outcome, an absolute trust in the struggle for awareness. God’s influence in this concept provides a unique teaching of the finest art. The art of self change.
“The road to truth has many turns”
Truth can hit you at any minute and change your life forever. The Portal Cards as described here are healing Miracles; they will do you no harm. Learn their language and let them speak truth to you. Play with them and find they do provide. If the suggested meaning of the card does not feel right, keep exploring your inner self until a sense of the meaning resonates into your conscious mind. You can always check the quotes on the back side of the cards for additional clues. “The world belongs to the man who is wise enough to change his mind in the presence of facts.” Proverbs 15: 32 “Whosoever heeds correction gains understanding.”
“Take a leap of faith”
There are only two ways that this will not work. If you believe God can’t do it, or that he wouldn’t do it. Jesus said, “If you would have faith as a mustard seed nothing will be impossible.” It’s time for us to start trusting God for the answers we so desperately need. God as your source is a simple but completely effective plan for living. He removes negative dependency—and anxiety—from our lives by assuring us that He will provide. Our only job is to listen; He will tell us how. God didn’t want to be excluded from any good work (art form). Have we taken something from God? Think about it. Was it fate? Nevertheless the card concept has become the grounds for future creativity. Why would God do this and why now and not then? A good question indeed. He is enterprising and wants to fulfill Himself in individual work. His sympathetic personality will develop a subject’s ability to think deeply into life or any logic of destiny. That is why your faith is so important; you must believe that you receive from God, and give thanks for it all. Imagine now every good idea you ever had coming from God; knowing it’s from Him is the true Gift. God is your friend—he trying to keep your spirit clean and pure. “Faith is not merely you holding on to God—it is God holding on to you.” The Portal Cards were created to show you that you can always be present with God, no mater what is whirling around you. Every image and word in this deck of cards is intended to help you take that leap of FAITH. Are you standing precariously at a launching point in your life? God has invited each of us to be tapped into His purposes and power. Psalms 57: 11 “Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.” You must develop an emotional relationship with God and this Book is your chance to do so. Use the Portal Cards as tools for which to discover your personal creative side, helping you find solutions, giving you variables, and suggesting how you should behave or treat a delicate subject. They will help you find answers, and thereby enabling you to live a better, more fulfilling life. Many skeptics will say that this is wrong, but would you say that Satan is more crafty than God or more powerful for that same matter? For all who are wondering, God is the most powerful in eternity and he who doubts His power doubts God Himself. Christ was a man who overcame the world and defeated Satan. Do you truly believe that Satan can overpower God? Psalms 91: 9—16 “For God is my refuge! I choose the God above all gods to shelter me. How then can evil overtake me or any plagues come near? For He orders His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will steady you with their hands to keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the trail. You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes, yes even trample them beneath your feet! For the Lord says, because He loves me, I will rescue him; I will make him great because he trust in My name. When he calls on Me I will answer; I will be with him in trouble, and rescue him in honor him. I will satisfy him with a full life and give him My salvation.” God will never deny your faith; your faith is the only thing that will carry you into His grace. Just as the Bible states, “Your works are dead without faith and your faith is dead without works.” Now it is easy to see why so many Christians get stuck for years in turmoil, pain and want.
“Let God lead you through the Troubled Waters”
Just keep in mind that this is a spiritual journey not a trip around the world, or some “get rich quick scheme.” God can lead you through troubled waters. If the truth be told, we don’t have a clue what is going on with our spirit; it could be battling some greater spiritual war. These are things we must keep in mind: having a little extra armor never hurt anyone; sharpen up your sword a tad on the other side; sometimes you need a harder stone to find insights; quite often the best insights come from the darkest place. The Portal Cards will help to put you in touch with your own inner guidance, with a part of you that God established in you before you were you, He knew the test and trials you would face in this world before you ever arrived. He gave you every seed to meet the need. That very seed is a part of you that knows everything you need to know for your life but sometimes it takes a little something extra to crack the seed open. Insight leads to sight and, with the help of the Portal Cards, you can locate the lost ground of timely right actions and undertake the one activity that has no equal: Self-Change.
“A new born baby is not fully developed”
Speaking on the earlier Card Decks, no, things are not perfect from the start, and, yes things do get off track, but the only reason they do is because mankind chooses to indulge in things better left alone. The card concept themselves are not bad; we who add the words are—but being positive gives us the ability to change bad into good. It’s not the creative idea that is bad; it’s the wrong use of that idea. “Nothing will remain lost forever.” Here are some of the ideas that should have been applied to the earlier Card Decks from the beginning. As I said, these are reparations of what the old Card Decks symbols should have been built upon. For an example:
“The world Card” Should have represented Jesus Christ and His role in the world, whereby His coming we can be partakers of the Kingdom of Heaven through the blood that He gave unto the world through the cross.
“The Wheel of Fortune Card” And the gate to it reveals that if you want fellowship with God, you must come God’s way through the gate. John 10:9 “I am the door: by me if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” To receive blessing, you must enter in.
“The Hanged man” Signifying Jesus Christ where we can now come boldly into the presence of God. “A sacrifice of God who gave his only begotten Son so that you might be saved through Him”
“The King of wands” A source of light or, to sum it up even better, “a source of life”
“The High Priest” A hope for your prayers to be answered and his return into you is the blessing you await. The high Priest is at the right hand of God.
“The Chariot” Could be viewed as a vehicle that travels between conscious and unconscious realms. Or it could represent the Holy Spirit.
“The Devil Card” The meaning of this card is quite chilling but yet easy to understand—the way God sees it — “you can’t help anyone by shielding them from the truth.”
“The Fool Card” May appear when you are starting out on a new journey not quite sure which way to go—a fork in the road so to speak.
“The King of Cups” Representing the Holy Grail which symbolizes a quest for something that will complete your spiritual being. The grail itself, contained the blood of the redeemer, and thus symbolizes redemption. The Holy Grail could be identified as a personal redemption or a sacrifice to God. Often times the grail is hidden in the darkest places in a spiritual sense.
“The King of Swords” Could very well denote the word of God and cutting through troubles by yielding your sword which is the word of God. Any and all positive words. Whatever works. Use it.
“The King of the Shields” The trying of your faith—As the Bible states; “using the shield of faith against the fiery arrows that the wicked one tries you with.” If you don’t use your shield then you’ll be hamburger at the days end. The shield is using the word of God when the trials come against you.
“The King of Coins” Could be a warning— “Where your treasure is so shall be your heart.” Beware of greed and the lust of this world. “Be in the world but not of it.” Don’t take me wrong—if you have wealth, just don’t let greed ruin it. As Jesus said: “what good shall it be if a man gains the entire world but yet loses his own soul.”
“The Devil and Death Card” I think it would be safe to say that the Devil and Death card in the in the old card concept is what frightens people and discredited the deck itself. That is where it started and this is where it will end. Right here. Right now. Let’s go into this Devil and Death card business and see what we can dig up. To start let me say that death is a part of life whether we like it or not, but with God’s help it isn’t a lasting death, but death to the flesh. (Your wants apposed to your needs.) The chilling death card meaning is a psychological death not a physical death. Spiritual growth brings pain and if you want to move past this point you are going to have to let go of certain beliefs and behaviors. I refer to this as the “Furness”. The Furness is a place where a lesson is learned. Having working methods is good but to grow spiritually you must step outside the box. Unorthodox techniques are needed to reach new spiritual altitudes, seeking wholeness is the heart of the Warrior’s quest, bringing to mind that mythical bird, The Phoenix; one who consumes itself with fire and then RISES from the ashes to discover new perspectives and new birth. Or as I once said to myself, “rise like a phoenix from the ashes of my pathetic life.” Well what do you know, it worked. The meaning of unorthodox in the Webster dictionary is; “breaking with convention or tradition.” People find it easier to condemn these methods because they don’t want to come out of their comfort zone. My point is, don’t pretend or act like you know something you don’t and you will not have to question God later. God wants you to search for insights, not limit yourself with dry bread. God has a word for you in many forms of art. All you have to do is accept it. Are you one of those people who you can be lead to water and not drink? “A person who knows everything has a lot to learn.” As far as the Devil and Death Card goes, you cannot help anyone by shielding them from the truth. I like to call this—“knowing thy enemy.”
Sometimes there are unusual misunderstandings between man and God. This may take a great deal of thinking, but God will no longer tell us anything but what He believes we can understand. Once again the fear of being misunderstood has made its appearance in Him. We must shed the image, which we have conceived of Him in order for Him to find again all the ease in opening His heart, just as if He were seeing us for the first time. 1 Peter 5:6 “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.” To achieve understanding we must open ourselves up and see through the ways of Christianity which has stopped the hand of God in many ways. The Catholic Church outlawed the use of Insight Cards back in the early 1100s yet, as you can see from this display, the idea is still very much alive. Let me now introduce you to the Sister of the Tarot—oh my dear Lord!
As you can see the tradition is still very much alive. All of these images were made by the Catholic Church, each having their own insights on the back of each card. The only difference is that they don’t come in a deck. Not everybody has the same belief and no one has the right to say this religion is right or that religion is wrong. As I said before—“we are all looking at life through a keyhole.” What you see is a part of your belief.
“Being Creative in the Name of Jesus”
The love of God is shown by every flower and blade of grass. Every tall green tree of the forest with lovely birds singing their happy songs tells us of God’s everlasting love, who is full of compassion and pity. There is no solution in avoiding Him. Hidden under the soil, a plant sprouts from a seed, pushing through the soil in search of life-giving sunlight. Breaking through the wrinkled face of the earth, the plant returns a new blanket of greenery. Your new freedom gains the highest reward. We are capable of many wonderful things. As a plant must push hard through the soil to emerge and blossom, the mature man faces life with what tools he has at hand. With these tools we carve out a little kingdom of peace in which we can find adult recognition. We attain a feeling that our efforts are worthwhile. The bold may desire the adventure, but the intelligent know the truth of the heart and the happiness which will follow. “We achieve satisfaction when we learn to be tough without being brittle.”
2 Corinthians 9: 10-15 “For God, who gives seed to the farmer to plant, and later on, good crops to harvest and eat, will give you more and more seed to plant and will make it grow so that you can give away more and more fruit from your harvest. Yes, God will give you much so that you can give away much, and when we take your gifts to those who need them they will break out into thanksgiving and praise to God for your help. So, two good things happen as a result of your gifts—those in need are helped, and they overflow with thanks to God. Those you help will be glad not only because of your generous gifts to themselves and to others, but they will praise God for this proof that your deeds are as good as your doctrine. And they will pray for you with deep fervor and feeling because of the wonderful grace of God shown through you. Thank God for His Son—His Gift too wonderful for words.”
Nature will always remain a puzzle. There is no alternative but to accept it as it is. We are all looking at life through a keyhole. You can ether look at it as good or evil, positive or negative. He who is wise tries to stay on a positive note because life’s most difficult chapter is “the art of living.” We can ether accept our faith or select nothingness. We can either believe that everything matters or that nothing matters. “Deciding not to choose is still making a decision.”
In reality the only question this book raises is “what will your relationship with God come to?” Will you try or will you not? I do know this, God will miss you and He wants you to turn around and come to Him. To the point—“misdirection causes regret.” God loves us all and things happen because things happen, that’s just the law of nature. No one is qualified to Judge God, no matter what His abilities may be. How can anyone make a sound judgment on something when they don’t have all the facts? You must admit to yourself that He does have a much broader view on things then we do. He is our eyes and ears in the spirit world. We are unaware of how much we are blessed. The truth is that we choose our own lessons and make stupid excuses for why we are where we are. Did you get that? We make our own choices and we wind up in difficult situations, and that’s it. Where was God then? you ask. Not where was God! Where were you? That is the question you need to be asking yourself. “Water which is distant is no good for a fire which is near.”
God and the devil are looking for expression in this world.
There is only one foundation, God. He was kind and let me become an expert builder. I laid a foundation on which others can build. But we must each be careful how we build, because God and Christ are the only foundation. Whatever we build on that foundation will be tested by fire on the Day of Judgment. We need to realize that what we define as perfection is usually nothing more or less than the reflection of our own image. Build on Godly images and you can’t go wrong. Just remember that, faith is simply what you believe. As the Bible states—“The just shall walk by faith.”
The Value of Keeping Your Eye on the Ball
To ensure your success, you must pay close attention to detail. I didn’t doubt the potential value of paying attention to subconscious cues. We all have a goal that we must face, although many refuse to acknowledge their God given destiny but will no doubt later regret the irreversible repercussions that follow. "Destiny is not a matter of chance, it's a matter of choice." Try to keep in mind that deciding not to choose is still making a decision and that decision is one that you yourself must live with. "Eternity is a long time to think about what you should have done." This book is your chance to find your God given destiny. Use it and live your life to it's fullness never regretting what might have been.
