Father thank You for the gift of connectedness. I remain connected to You as distance and time is not relevant because I come from You, and with You I will always remain. Father please touch me as a reminder whenever I fear being alone or lost, that way I will remember that I’m never lost or alone because You are always beside me protecting me. Help me to focus my eyes so that even in darkness I can see Your light. There’s nothing that I could want more than being connected to and loved by You. Thank You for loving me Father.
We are here for a short time but we’re always with our Father. We have assignments to complete in this level of existence and when we have done what God needs us to do, we move on to the next level of existence with new experiences, to learn what we must.
Jesus walked the path as the prophecies proclaimed. He did what He was instructed to do. He walked where and when He was told. He healed through word, touch, and thought. He taught, nurtured, and forgave others. He showed us the way. Once His job was complete He prepared His disciples for the time when He would no longer physically walk beside them, and He told them what was expected of them and how society would treat them for being dedicated servants to Him.
Through His journey He proved that there is no death, just an absence from the human body, as we transition to our new role. He proclaimed that our relationship with God is one-on-one, no mediator in the form of priest, pastor, or bishop is needed, just our conversation with our Father-Mother. Jesus showed us and it is up to us to follow the path, precepts, and commands He outlined and reinforced.
You can strengthen your connection to God, through prayer, praise, worship, and consistent obedience. Speak to Him. He’s always listening and watching.
