Today something very special happened that is worth sharing.
A father asked me if I could help his son, whom he said, "everyone had given up on." I said, "yes."I felt the heaviness on my heart to do everything that I could to get him help. I had no idea how I was going to help him, so I did what God placed first in my life, a devotional letter assignment in class, based on one of the Apostle Paul's letters, 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12.
I wrote my devotional letter to the young boy in trouble and mailed it, letting him know that my husband and I were here to help him. When he received the letter he called excited to have our help, and we talked for an hour. I enjoyed his honesty. He shared with me that his mind had been playing a Bible verse, which he had misunderstood the meaning of. He thought that he was beyond redemption. He told me he was "reprobate." I had to look that one up.
I assured him that God was bigger than anything that we could dish out.
We all under estimate God, or our idea of what God is. We try to make a god in our image, weak human, capable of suffering, but this does not match every atom and particle which we are made up of. Life thrives in good conditions, so do we as humans.
"What is the only sin not forgiven?"There are none. Everything is forgiven. God is love, there is no punishment, no lake of fire. This all got into the Bible by mistake— the Egyptians had a tomb with "The Book of The Dead" on its walls. This is the orgin of the Bible's Revelations. The lake of fire is not a location for our errors in life, or a place people will be thrown in if they are not saved by Jesus. If you are really depressed, and can't get out of hating yourself, buy a book called "A Course In Miracles" and read it every day for a year, the 365 lessons, one every day for a year, will change your life into one of "Miracles". It will help you free yourself of guilt and pain.
Tonight my husband David and I are going to the homeless mission shelter to try to find out if this is the right place for the young man we are offering to help, hoping for him to get a new start.
If you feel you are beyond forgiveness— than you have been hurt.
Let go of guilt and love yourself as if you were a 'puppy' that didn't know better or was kicked around and is hurting. Love yourself no matter what.
Dr. David R. Hawkins said, "Guilt is a trick of the ego. It says.."woo is me."
Hawkins should know, he was an M.D. PhD shrink and was one hell of a happy little old man upon his death. Hawkins called, Jesus 'Lord' and prayed to him. Below are photos of my trip to the Holy Land. And my book, "From Hollywood to God" has my wild stories on the path to truth.
