Paul Kitchen: I Talk To Jesus

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. ~ Matthew 7:7-8, The Bible

This is Universal Law. You don’t have to believe in it for it to affect your life. We are thinking, creating beings whose thoughts are constantly requesting our futures. Are you asking for the future you really want or are you getting what you have by default?

Christians pray to God or Jesus asking for healing, guidance or forgiveness. Other religions pray or meditate to a myriad of deities. You don’t have to be religious to “talk to Jesus/God/Creator”. All people pray because thought is prayer and conversely prayer is thought sent out into the universal consciousness (called God, if you wish).

So the question is - what are you thinking about? Praying for? Whom are you wishing revenge upon? Are you wishing someone harm? Are you day dreaming about your deepest desires or are you thinking you can’t have them? What are you asking God to bring into your life and the lives of others?

Paul Kitchen’s song, I Talk to Jesus, touched me because that is where I go for advice, solace, and safety. I talk to Jesus and my God in my head. I journal. It’s a physical record of my prayer. I’ve seen many things come to pass in my life as a result of these prayers and conversations.

One thing we can do for our world is bring our leaders into our prayers/thoughts, talk to them, ask them to make sound decisions for peace, have compassion and hug them. They have the burden of millions upon their shoulders. Maybe then, they will feel strong enough to step up for humanity.

When you’re feeling lost, exhausted, and insignificant…sit quietly alone and listen and talk and feel…answers will come. We have them but we rarely take the time to hear. Most of all believe that you deserve and we, as all of humanity, deserve better than what we are now experiencing.

Oh how true! How many times have I seen my prayers answered??? Can't count them, there are so many! Although we ask, we also must realize that he may not answer quickly or in the manner we anticipate. All comes in HIS timing!
Thanks again for an uplifting blog, you truly have a God given talent!
Love,
Your sister and friend...Tina
