As we move into 2018, a few comments I want to share . . . 2017 was a great year for all of us, no matter the challenges, the loses, the struggles, the heartbreaks or even the near death experiences. We are yet here, in the moment, in the now, in the present, with our breath. We are not alone. We have never been alone. This very moment we invite, we allow, and we receive the Holy Spirit into our lives to help, lead, and guide us through the end of 2017 into the arriving of 2018.
All of you who are reading this post are within me- as I am within you- and we all are within God, the Creator, as He is within us. There is nothing you are currently experiencing or will experience that I (Joseph) have not experienced either in the physical or spiritual realms including troubles, hard times, physical hunger, homelessness, bullying threats, friends turning their backs on you… and the list goes on. I have overcome all of the obstacles and will continue to do so. I’m a witness, a testimony in the making, that you too will overcome all obstacles that are currently before you and those that might occur in the future.
In closing our 2017, my prayer for us is that we will allow nothing to faze us because we are so loved by the Creator. We are absolutely sure that nothing -at this present moment or in the future- will come between God and His unconditional love for us. We embrace and receive Him because He embraced us first.
Happy New Year!
With love, with great love, and peace.
