Living in the Freedom of God

God is—and always has been—about liberation. Liberation for our soul, for our entire being.

There can be no complete and enduring liberation without living in the fullness of His Will, and without His Will living fully in the midst of creatures. His Volition and Spirit alone can set paralyzed man free.

Liberating Love

Have you ever been in love? So much so that you easily gave your heart and soul to another person? To someone you trusted with all your being and could give your whole self to? read more…

Wholeness, Freedom and Gratitude

God does not heal us or make us whole so we can return with more vigor to our old ways of selfishness and sin. Though He leaves us free to decide, He heals us to live a fuller life in Him.

Jesus often told those he healed to go and sin no more. But He could say to all of us today, ” Go and do your own will no more, but live fully in mine.”

To go and do our own will, to live a life focused on what we can get for ourselves—whether honor, riches, praise or human indulgences of every sort—would be an act of ingratitude and a total misappropriation of the love and generosity of God.

Let us be deliberate in our own response when God restores us to wholeness. Let us give our thanks by always living his will. By putting the old man away and living as a new creation in Christ.

Entering the Kingdom of God’s Will

Leave the “adult” behind.

Childlikeness is the Price of Admission

If the price of entry into the Kingdom of God–His Divine Will–is to become as a little child, then we must understand what that means and pursue it all costs. read more…

God’s Gift to You this Christmas

In our excitement and quest to experience Heaven on earth, we often fail to receive all the gifts Christ wants to give to us at Christmastime.

He shares with us the very gifts presented to Him by the three Wise Men:

  1. The refined purity and spiritual wealth of gold
  2. The incense of prayer that unites us to the Eternal Will of God
  3. The bitter myrrh of human suffering

How do I know if I’m living in the Divine Will?

I often wonder if I’m really acting in the Divine Will. If I’m connected to God’s “electrical current.”

We’ve been taught that no matter how small the act, it can participate in the Divine, Eternal Act of God.

Yet, when making my acts in the Will of God, I usually don’t feel or sense anything at all. It seems like I’m living in God’s Will by blind faith, by desire alone. read more…

Learning to Say Yes to God

No Longer Creatures of Habit

The un-education of our wills

Praise be to God who answers the questions and prayers we can’t quite articulate and struggle to form. He knows our hearts and sees the thoughts forming in our minds like clouds constantly coalescing and rearranging themselves until they reach critical mass.

Throughout our life we use our will at our discretion. Like a line of credit, we spend it freely on ourselves—and sometimes on others—to satisfy our wants and desires. read more…

Every Day Is Christmas Day in the Divine Will

A sense of anticipation, a feeling of security and happiness being together as a family. The excitement, newness and brightness of hope swelling into joy. These are the impressions that characterize Christmas for me.

Who is behind it all but God, calling me to Himself through happy, bright interior moments that color all the outer moments at Christmastime with family. It is one of the most natural and intimate ways God can touch me and set me free, sharing the beauty of his love.

Living in the Divine Will is just that: drawing so close to God as to sense the brightness, happiness and joy of Christmas – any day of the year.
