Hi again!

Have you ever been given a clear strong word in your heart or maybe in your conscience? Strange words that just pop into your head but they aren’t your words? It happened to me! So I’ve been busy in this cool late Spring pounding away on my keyboard, formatting my soon-to-be-released first book in The Spirit Quest series. It’s titled INNOCENCE DERAILED: based on a true story!

This emotional page-turner is a heart-breaking, coming-of-age story set in the rich tapestry of nature. It explores the hurt and wonder of first love and the raw and real experiences of becoming a woman. It also describes the beginning events when I felt pursued by God’s Spirit in such an incredible way.

And yes, the novel is raw and real, my own story! But hey, I always said I’m an open book! Ha! If you’ve wondered how I came to my outside-the-box Spiritual/Christian perspectives, this book tells all and you’re the first readers to get a peek preview!

(From the novel: INNOCENCE DERAILED, Chapter One, First Cravings of the Heart):

A sign propped up in a grimy window read Office of the Salvation Army. 

Ha! That’s ironic, Armies don’t save people. The soldiers drafted to fight in Vietnam are trained to kill. That thought bothered Kate because it was 1966 and the war had been escalating for years. 

She stopped dead in her tracks as the weathered door of the office flew open and a strange young woman burst out onto the sidewalk. She glowed with poise and glided past with an oh-so-buoyant smile.

Kate absorbed the joy and the powerful aura radiating from the woman, but wondered where it came from? The young woman had on a simple T-shirt, dark jeans, scuffed boots, but worn with such artistic flair. No timidity in her presence, just bold in spirit, like she walked the earth on a glorious mission. 

Her strangeness intrigued Kate in a tingling awareness. Where does she get that boldness and confidence? Because what this girl has – is what I want.

As if in response to her thoughts, clear and simple words whispered into Kate’s conscience as the young woman disappeared down the street.”

~~AN~~INVITATION~~EXTENDS~~TO~~YOU~~

Kate stood on the sidewalk and looked around. No one else was nearby, so who had spoken? Had the woman issued an invitation to her …subliminally? I had seemed so real. She shook her head to clear the strange thoughts but then had to backtrack fast...

……………..*……………..

That strange encounter was the first time Spirit talked to me! It got me to thinking strange things. Jesus promised to send back the Holy Spirit to us after he returned to heaven to guide us!

Maybe our conscience is the portal to download words from God?

"But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you." John 16:12-14 NIV Bible

In my turbulent, young hippie years, I started tuning in to hear what a higher power might be saying to me . But this was the first encounter, the first invitation to connect to God’s plan for my spiritual development.

I found out you don’t have to be ‘religious’ to have it happen to you.

Spirit might be talking to you in your everyday life already if you stop and listen! With whispers, with delightful coincidences – Spirit wants to gently guide you in the choices you have to make, and empower you with love!

Has it happened to you? I would love to compare my experiences to yours!

Stone slab where Jesus' body was lain

Jane Catherine Rozek in Jerusalem, 2016

I thought I knew the Easter story until I prayed and sobbed on the stone slab that Jesus’ body once stretched out on. Until I read the black and white details in the first report of his resurrection… It was a woman – who first saw Jesus Christ alive after his crucifixion on the cross! Can you visualize it? I can, because we
also took this picture of the burial caves near the old city of Jerusalem! Continue reading

When did it all start, her search for truth, for a faith she could use as a source of power? Kate’s mind skimmed back in time, the parts she endured, the parts she treasured, all so different, each block a space where she had grown spiritually.

There was the first day, back in 1968 when Spirit began to manifest its presence into her being. And after that, came a love so strong, she still carries the embers of it in the back of her heart. It was the beginning of the immeasurable expanse of intensity for what was to come…

I’m so excited about my next book being published! This is the beginning of my memoir series! Except that I’ve written it in third-person because my first draft sounded so egotistic when writing, “I did this and I did that…” Besides, I’m not that young person anymore.

Kate is the girl who survived her coming-of-age trials and dangerous adventures in this novel!

Not that I was so unique, just a typical teen who fell in love, got dumped, and turned hippie in the age of rebellion. But it’s more than all that. THIS is my story of how God and I connected.

The wonder of it…

is that the same things could have/or could be… happening to you!

Do you remember the first time you fell in love? The intensity to every touch? The quivering anxiety to the unfolding events? The beautiful gift of belonging to each other?

Was the first time good for you? Did it last? Share in the comments, please!

Here’s the song that fits my memories of first love from a young man, and then from God himself…

CLICK TO LISTEN – The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face by Roberta Flack

I hope this song makes your eyes misty! Thanks so much for hanging in there with me. I promise to write more often to share details about the new book coming out soon!

Warms hugs to all!

What would our world look like if everyone spoke THE TRUTH?

DO YOU BELIEVE what social media says anymore? It’s difficult when every media outlet twists the events of the day for national political gain, or worse, for corporate monetary greed with hidden agendas. Continue reading

 

In our war threatened world “we the people” are weary from our egotistical political leaders carving up the diversity of countries like it was a board game.

Isn’t it time we come together and think of our selves as one human population?

Some of us believe in Something Greater than Ourselves but we don’t go to church. We don’t like religion or the hypocrisy we see in it. But then how can we pray to get linked up with the greatest power in the universe?

Jesus Christ taught us how to pray. (Christ was not his last name! The word Christ means the one supernaturally, and powerfully anointed). Early Christians called it the Lord’s Prayer and in most Bible versions, it sounds pretty religious.

So here’s my 21st Century translation of it. You can compare it side by side to the original. I often pray this way. Perhaps this would suit you too!

The Earthling’s Prayer  
Translated by JaneCatherineRozek
The Lord’s Prayer (King James Version)
Oh, Great Creator from out in space, you alone have sacred authority. Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
May your government be established on our planet as it is in the galaxies.  Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven.
Fill our day with physical and spiritual nourishment.  Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive our faults in the same way we forgive those who offend us.  Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.
Direct us into a higher conscience and protect us from immorality. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For this is your realm, your unrivaled power and supernatural splendor, forever. For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, forever.
I align myself to these words. So be it.Amen.
The Celestial Proposal – Our Invitation to Join the God Kind / by Jane Catherine Rozek 
Available on Amazon

Let me know what you think. I know our God is BIG – big enough for all of us!

 With love from my heart to yours!

I travelled across Mexico on a third class bus one Halloween. Why didn’t I take a faster, classier bus? Because all other mode of transportation was sold out! In Mexico everyone… celebrates Halloween the way it was meant to be. Family members traveling home to colorful street celebrations anticipating their family reunion parties in the graveyards honouring their departed!  Continue reading

How do you face “evil” in the eye? What do you do when it confronts you? Because it’s all around us in every culture and country.

It’s time to face the fact that God is not ruling this planet. The kingdom (government) of God is not in political power. Have we voted Him in or asked Him to take over? No!

So who’s in charge???

When I found this one passage in the Bible,  it all made sense to me and I saw it like a sci-fi fiction story being played out in real time:

Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon,and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

So the plot for our story it this: evil forces were tossed out of heaven and cast down to our world. Well, apparently they are still here, alive…and ugly.

No wonder we have wars break out all over our planet, hitting us like lightning fires in a forest. We are in an age-old battle against those dark forces now so prevalent in our politics and corporate greed. In order words, don’t give up on Christianity because you think God is behind all the violence and horror. He isn’t.

God is in our world and he can be in our hearts. But what can we do until we can establish his higher/celestial form of moral world government? Until we can establish paradise on earth the way it was designed to be – a real Kingdom of God? We can continue to pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew6:10 KJV

I have written two previous parts in this “How to Fight Evil” series.

#1 First, you have to recognize the enemy (The Invisible Tyranny)

#2 Second you have to fight with boldness (Fight Evil with Boldness)

#3 Here is the third key of wisdom you can find in any Bible:

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.  If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.  Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written:
 
“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.  On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” 
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:16-21 NIV Bible

Burning coals on his head? Wow! That would wake them up, and make him or her think!

Doing good to others allows you to take pride in your integrity and your character, which are traits no one can take away without you letting them. That is your victory!

Besides, evil can’t associate itself with good, with caring and kindness, because those attributes are part of God!

So as the verse says, “…as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone!”
