Ever quit your job before you replaced your full time income?
As I pondered my new found state of joblessness and my meager efforts to create enough income before the bills come due 30 days from now, I came across this gem from a talk given by the Master at a Mission Shelter back in 1912. I wanted to share it with those of you who may be similarly challenged financially or those who just might be in need of some divine inspiration and words of encouragement.
Click on the headline above to go directly to the talk which I have posted at RecallingHealth.com.
The words of love expressed by His Holiness Jesus Christ and Baha'u'llah made my heart sing in thankfulness and celebration for the opportunity to be apart of this elite group of foot soldiers in the army of God. (Mind you, this is not the first time I have been invited to join :-)
No doubt the words in the talk have the inherent power to enrich the souls of the rich and poor alike. What am I talking about--all of God's Words have the potency to inspire and transform the lives of anyone who believes and has faith.
Who was it that said: "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God."?
Still reading this post instead of the Blessed Are the Poor talk? Well here are a couple of quotes for you to ponder from the Hidden Words before you go:
O CHILDREN OF DUST!Yeah, the rich ones on earth have their instructions and obligations from on high too. Who knows, maybe that's why it's so hard for some of them to get into heaven.
Tell the rich of the midnight sighing of the poor, lest heedlessness lead them into the path of destruction, and deprive them of the Tree of Wealth. To give and to be generous are attributes of Mine; well is it with him that adorneth himself with My virtues.
O YE RICH ONES ON EARTH!
The poor in your midst are My trust; guard ye My trust, and be not intent only on your own ease.-- Baha'u'llah, The Persian Hidden Words
This is Lo...and I gotta go.
PS--Still need more?
Ok...here's what I will do. When I finish posting here, I will post one of my favorite prayers for aid and assistance (one in which I have long ago committed to memory). It will be posted here.
PS II--I am gonna try to dream in color tonight...
