The “Christian vote” is a hot topic for those deciding who to vote for in the upcoming elections. That confuses me because we have such a simple answer to guide us! Our God belongs to no political party and God doesn’t play around in politics. So if you think of yourself as a Democrat, a Republican, or a Canadian Conservative, or a Liberal; remember as Christians we don’t follow a party line. We follow God!

 

God gave us standards to live by and by using those very standards we each can determine the best candidate to vote for. Which one shows the Fruits of the Spirit? Who lives by those standards? Christians ought not to be swayed by either the right or left media slants, which are most likely paid for by huge corporate interests. WE ARE ABOVE ALL THAT!


It’s harvest time in our farmlands right now. Remember the Fruits of the Spirit in the Bible, the very book we value so highly?


But the Spirit produces the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, self-control...
Galatians 5:19-26 NCV Bible

These godly traits are what we look for in the candidates we want to elect. I love the plain and clear analogy in these common-sense verses! 

“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. 

People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.
A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
Luke 6:43-45 NIV Bible



Are there those among you who are truly wise and understanding? Then they should show it by living right and doing good things with a gentleness that comes from wisdom.
But if you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, do not brag. Your bragging is a lie that hides the truth.

That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God but from the world. It is not spiritual; it is from the devil. Where jealousy and selfishness are, there will be confusion and every kind of evil.

But the wisdom that comes from God is first of all pure, then peaceful, gentle, and easy to please. This wisdom is always ready to help those who are troubled and to do good for others. It is always fair and honest.  
James 3:13-18 NCV Bible

So there you go. The solution is to vote for the candidate that has the most history of honesty, his integrity! “By their fruit, you shall know them,” NOT by what the say in front of a camera. But the one who is most full of wisdom and love toward others – proven by the fruit he’s produced in the past!

Virtual hugs to all of you! I pray you’ll get registered and get out to vote. Remember God’s standards and take measures to stay healthy.

Kelowna Lake Shore

I love Canada! And BC, the province I live in!

My home is Kelowna on Okanagan Lake. I call it the “California of Canada” because it has some of the best climate in the country and is known as a wealthy retirement city.

Speaking of wealth, our online newspaper Kelowna Now, posted this article today:

Dozens of Millionaires Sign Letter Begging Governments to Tax Them

This is… the answer to pay back the billions of dollars all the world governments are spending to fight Covid-19!

In Canada itself, the Liberal government stated this year’s deficit is already over $340 billion dollars. But there are good people, kind and loving people, trying to address humanity’s problems. It makes me believe we humans are spiritually evolving. God is writing his standards in our hearts just like he said he would!

Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! 

Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.

Then you will find favor with both God and people,and you will earn a good reputation. Psalms 3:1-4 NLT

White policeman, Black protestor

There is so much violence in our world, so much hatred over the color of our skin, and the type of our religion. When is it enough? “Why doesn’t God come down and save us from the misery that billions of people are experiencing?”

This question was hurled at me during my “X” Zone Radio interview with Rob McConnell and here’s the answer I presented:

How will our future children talk about the current pandemic? Yes, it is horrible, earth-shattering, but can it be a wake-up call, and later be made into a catalyst for GOOD?

I always try to find a positive perspective when hard times come. Because sometimes the hard times can be a catalyst for awesome positive changes.

I see signs of love and kindness all around during this Covid-19 pandemic, causing people to align with godly standards and model the love that Jesus Christ showed us. I’ve talked with social distancing to more neighbors walking in our community than ever before.

And when I listen to Leonard Cohen’s deep voice in this song, it gives me hope for my imperfections and our imperfect world. Tell me if it doesn’t make you smile too, just a little bit.
I would like to shine that light out from me. I want to ring the bell too. What if so many people start ringing bells that the whole world stops and listens… and changes are made toward peace, love and respect for others in all our societies? This current time is our chance to focus on what really matters.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 NIV

Are you alone with your thoughts too? Is there anybody out there?

Yes! We’re not alone.

But being an author is a lonely job too…

You sit by yourself with your computer all day; you think and you type, not knowing if anybody is ever going to value what you write. But to capture those elusive heart-felt words, my laptop goes everywhere with me.

But I have an admission to make.

I google Amazon.com just to read my five star  reviews sometimes:

THE CELESTIAL PROPOSAL: Our Invitation to Join the God Kind

Then I get all charged up again! Because if I can change the life of just one person for the better, it’s worth all my effort. I’m honored by fans I’ve never even met.
Here is one of my favorites (if you know this person – please tell her to write to me)!

“I asked the Lord in spirit for this very book. It was as if it was manifested for me. Connecting all of the truths I’ve known and bringing them full circle with a profound new and enlightening perspective.
This book is the sum of Jesus Christ’s gospel put into a perspective that a latter-day human/spirit can translate into profound and comprehensive meaning. I literally prayed for this, wrote my prayer in a journal, and it was brought into my life a day later. It was no coincidence. The powers of our divine creator were at work here. My heart is filled with gratitude for the love and work that went into these writings. I have now begun a new path in my life’s journey and that path is lit with new hope and renewed faith. This book was a beacon in the dark, during a dark and confusing time. I thank my Father in Heaven for answering my plea for answers. And I thank you, Jane, for being the conduit for those answered prayers.”

Profile of Martin Luther King Jr.

As the US celebrates Martin Luther King Day, I can’t help thinking of the words he once said 50 years ago.

I remember Martin Luther King Jr. dared to speak out against the US policy on Vietnam!

He claimed his own government created the Vietnam conflict itself and that the US was:

“But why did he say this?” I had to ask myself.

Years later, I realize it is only to fuel the great military-industrial complex so that the billions of dollars of war machinery can be sold. Because of course, in capitalism a market is required for your products to sell.

In other words, there has to be a war going on someplace in the world, for the US economy to profit from. PEACE is not profitable in the eyes of Big Business.

So I have profound respect for Martin Luther King Jr. though he wasn’t perfect. Today he would say to all of us, the same thing he said back then:

And so I’m sending this out today for the political situation in the US. Because a CLEAR CONSCIENCE is a godly characteristic we should all develop. And we should do it quickly.

As the days go by in the first months of the year 2020, are you making any headway on your New Year resolutions ?

Many of us don’t have a lot of faith in doing so. We hope to, but there is no power in hope. There is no creative energy in saying, “I hope I can. I wish I could, I want to.” Or even saying, “I’m going to try to…” – these words are not going to make us successful.

I read some words of wisdom when I was seventeen, and I still remember them. I don’t know which ancient scholar first wrote the lines (email me if you know) but a contemporary translation would go something like this:

“If you seem unable to change THINGS in your life, first change your ideas about those things.”

The Celestial Proposal book“We must believe wholeheartedly that whatever we hope for is possible, so that spiritual forces can come into play. And if we align ourselves with a higher power, then… (Excerpt from The Celestial Proposal, Chapter 12 A Quantum Leap Belief System, pg. 149.)

'Everything is possible for one who believes' (Mark 9:23)."

Our belief system is the whole key. We need to yield to God’s powerful presence in order to override the old circuits of negative thought patterns.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5)

When we align each manufactured thought with God’s promises, where truly anything is possible, our faith grows in quantum leaps and bounds.

 Powerful Faith is a metaphysical process.

Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)

So I urge you to apply this understanding to your New Year resolutions and have a happy and successful new year!
