It's All About Breakthrough...

Dear Reader:

Let me tell you an amusing story. Maria, an inquiring young woman, wanted to know everything about the mastery of life, nature and the universe. She was eager to learn. Most of all, because of long-standing inner conflicts, Maria wanted to know how to deal with her stress and emotional pain. Obsessed with her passion to master her challenges in life, she travelled to a guru in a distant land who set her up in a cave, and gave her a lot of books to read and study.

Every morning Guru came to check on Maria’s progress and asked: “Have you been reading?” And she replied: “O yes, I have been reading and studying but I have not yet found the secret to overcoming my emotional pain.”

And Guru would continue: “Have you learned the secret about the mastery of life, nature, and the universe yet? Have you learnt how to handle your emotional pain and stress yet ...”

“Not yet...” would be Maria’s reply, and Guru would lift a stick and strike her with it.

The pattern was the same everyday. Guru visited the young woman in the cave, asked her the same questions and she gave the same bottom-line answer: “I have not yet found the secret of overcoming my emotional pain.” And Guru would strike her with his stick.

Early one morning, Guru visited Maria and asked her the usual questions and she gave him the usual answers. However, Maria knew what was coming next and felt she could not deal with one more whack of Guru’s stick. And just as Guru raised his stick to strike Maria, she swiftly reached up and grabbed it.

Suddenly realizing what she had done, Maria became afraid of what might happen next...

However, Maria was shocked to hear Guru say: “Congratulations. You have done well. You have found the answer. You now have the secret.” And Guru affirmed the secret to the mastery of life with these words: “People must grab a hold of that which inflicts pain before it can strike.”

Friend, you and I can agree that Guru’s striking Maria with the stick reflects the
stressful events we allow to inflict emotional pain upon us, but the truth is: we can master that part of our lives and enjoy harmony, peace and well-being.

Do you have unchained negative emotions? We all display them from time to time, but the important thing to consider is how often we have them and how long we allow them to plague our minds. I can tell you of ways to help shorten their stay - - even stop them before they begin to inflict blows upon us. Remember Maria’s triumph in the story above?

You can enjoy a balanced way of life

Our human experience
Our human experience is filled with barren places and crooked paths. However, the Scriptures indicate that God is in the exchange business. He is willing to take the fallen state of His children and give His beauty in exchange, which is restoration, peace of mind, love, truth and orderliness. In other words, He is offering His abundance and freedom for mankind’s lack and limitations.

Many people are dealing with life-dominating problems, and questioning God’s providence and care, wondering why they should have to undergo their challenges. However, prayer and meditation on Scripture will give some insight into God’s ways, while a change of attitudes and mindsets could be of added help towards a sense of balance and better living.

What will you find in “Lessons for Today?”
In this the First Series, you will find lessons that address various everyday challenges, and show how they can be overcome by using practical and biblical principles. For example, the following topics are addressed:
● breaking unwanted habits,

A Quotation By Archbishop Romero

I found this great quote by Archbishop Romero, who was assassinated 30 years ago, and thought I would share it with you:

It helps, now and then, to step back and take a long view.
The kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is even beyond our vision.
We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God's work.
Nothing we do is complete, which is a way of saying that the kingdom always lies beyond us.
No statement says all that could be said.
No prayer fully expresses our faith.
No confession brings perfection.
No pastoral visit brings wholeness.
No program accomplishes the church's mission.
No set of goals and objectives includes everything.
This is what we are about.
We plant the seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produces far beyond our capabilities.
We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that.
This enables us to do something, and to do it very well.
It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord's grace to enter and do the rest.
We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders; ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.
