A Timeless tale – Chapter Twenty Five


Living a Life in the Kingdom of God – Continued

How often have you heard people say, or have read, that all you and I have is now, this moment in which we breathe and live; laugh and cry, sing and shout? Yesterday exists in our memory, tomorrow in our dreams; it is only today that we hold in our control. Where we make choices based on love or fear, faith, doubt….

God desires for the whole of our life process to be an experience of constant joy,

Kingdom of God 5continuous creation, never-ending expansion, and total fulfillment in each moment of now.

We all know that as we create a flower garden (remember – we are all creators), part of the process will be preparing the soil, planting the seeds, nurturing their growth and then removing weeds to protect our beautiful and fragrantEvening Primrose flower garden.

So it will be with us. We will set about the garden of our lives by preparing a means for our growth, putting the seeds of God’s perfect system into the soil of our lives and then nurturing them to produce healthy growth and finally, protecting our harvest as long as we live.

We will come to understand that we will have to maintain our garden and keep planting new seeds (of God’s wisdom and knowledge) and removing those that no longer grow (those that no longer are useful to our continued growth)

How often have you heard people say, or have read, that all you and I have is now, this moment in which we breathe and live; laugh and cry, sing and shout? Yesterday exists in our memory, tomorrow in our dreams; it is only today that we hold in our control. Where we make choices based on love or fear, faith, doubt….

How wonderful, that I should wake each day to a firm belief that today is all I will ever have, with each day that wake and find I am still breathing. So it continues, each day becoming TODAY and today all I will ever have!Kingdom of God 6

I’m sure that you would say along with me, that your greatest gift in any one day is the fact that God is a very real person to me. To say that I know why I was born and what purpose there is in my life here on earth.

I say these words with the deepest of humility, understanding, as I do that it was not me that accomplished a relationship with Him, rather Him with me. I did not come to understanding some of the mysteries of His great person; rather it was He that made Himself known to me and lifted the veil from some, not all, of these mysteries.

As a young boy, who walked alone in the grasslands of the great cradle of humankind – Africa. Who lay in the arms of God’s creation, gazing up into the heavens and asking – “God who are you”?

And God, who always hears the cries of those that really want to know Him replied, “I and I alone, will make myself known to you, my child”.

Through a long collection of experiences; some ecstatic, some brutally painful, many endearing, the voyage begun. My cry to the heavens was heard and very slowly the answers were given to me. They appeared in a never-ending

treasure chest of life experiences.

This journey, I have learned, has no end; it is a continuous sequence of events in the now – TODAY.

How absolutely magnificent, that God just keeps revealing more and more of His precious being to me; as if I was someone special to whom He would share His secrets (mysteries) with. Like a very out of the ordinary friend, whom you trust and to whom you open the sanctuary of your heart.

I share some of these very special mysteries with you, because I simply have to. They are like the great Zambezi River in Africa, which rushes to the mightiest falls in the world and spills its power in thunderous sound and spray. I simply have to share them – I have no other choice.Kingdom of God 8

I don’t seek to teach that which, in whose wisdom, I am but a babe; but rather that you might be inspired to cry out to the heavens, “God, who are you, why was I born to this earth, what is my purpose…”?

Under God’s sovereign direction, I began to create my garden. I say create, because, like my Father (God) I was created to create – no more, no less.

The seeds He gave me, I planted and nurtured and guarded them. Now I gaze at my garden with deep admiration, an iThe Kingdom of God 2mitation of my Father, as he gazes at me, in admiration.

You must accept; no human, no group of people, no organization can teach you to create, only God.

You cannot plant and care for, a garden, unless you can create.

As a learner creator, I can say with Jesus, “I say words that my Father says; I act as I see my Father behaving”. I created my garden as my Father said I should, as he showed me how.

Every moment of each day I look at my garden. I turn the soil to air it, I removed weeds that stealthily enter unnoticed, I trim those of my fruit that need to be trimmed, I remove those fruit that no longer contribute to the beauty of my garden. I plant new seeds that are interesting and will add to its beauty.

Please Note:

I shall not write any more, for now, in this series as I need time to take the twenty five chapters written and put them into e-book format.

Instead, on alternative weeks I will publish the story of the missionary journey of our Brother “..time with the Master” and his family.
