Love Notes from God: The Power of Love

There's no need to be afraid of anything or anyone in this world. My love constantly surrounds you for protection. I will guide you through and rescue you from the hard times.
Love always,
Your Heavenly Father

El Señor es mi luz y mi salvación
(1a) De David.27 (1b) El Señor es mi luz y mi salvación,¿de quién podré tener miedo?
El Señor defiende mi vida,¿a quién habré de temer? ~Dios Habla Hoy (DHH)

The Eternal is my light amidst my darkness
and my rescue in times of trouble.
So whom shall I fear?
He surrounds me with a fortress of protection.
So nothing should cause me alarm. ~ The Voice (VOICE)

An Exuberant Declaration of Faith
A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid? ~New King James Version (NKJV)

Love Notes from God: Love & Sacrifice

Love Notes from God on Feasting on the Divine Blog

How much do I love you? I sacrificed My only son so you can live with Me forever. 
Your Father

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. ~New King James Version (NKJV)

God loved the world this way: He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life. ~GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life. ~The Voice (VOICE)

El amor de Dios para el mundo
Pues Dios amó tanto al mundo, que dio a su Hijo único, para que todo aquel que cree en él no muera, sino que tenga vida eterna. ~Dios Habla Hoy (DHH)

May The Fourth: The Journey Continues

First of all, I'm grateful for the gift of writing from my Heavenly Father. I'm beyond grateful that during those speechless moments, both in my life and the lives of those around me, Holy Spirit was there to whisper a narrative. Those narratives are captured in After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey and Pain is Fertile Ground.

One morning recently, I woke up with another narrative playing in my head. It was the answer to these questions:  Why do we experience so much pain? Why do we consciously make decisions that are harmful to our bodies, minds, spirits and souls? The answer: Because we don't know the truth of God's word! The Bible has something to say about everything! I didn't know this until I began studying the Bible for myself.

Today, I want to introduce to you an upcoming series from the PoliteJourney vault. A series not from someone claiming to be a spiritual teacher nor someone called to a particular spiritual position but a series from someone who is just wanting to share God's truth to inspire deliverance. Deliverance into the life predestined for you from the beginning of time!

I was in a dark and confused place more than once in several areas of my life. God's word was my light. His truths destroyed the lies. I began speaking His word over my life, and I haven't been the same since! I want everyone to have this experience, because it is available to YOU!

Life Lessons from Prince

Prince’s transition was so much more than the loss of a person. It heightened the awareness of his impact on the world and led me to a place of reflection.  As a poet and someone who colors outside the lines, hearing and seeing Prince made me realize I wasn’t alone in being a little different…a little weird.

His music and artistry taught me much about life—what is and what was to come.

“The beautiful ones, they hurt you every time
Paint a perfect picture
Bring to life a vision in one's mind
The beautiful ones
Always smash the picture
Always every time” ~The Beautiful Ones

“'Cuz in this life
Things are much harder than in the afterworld
In this life, you're on your own” ~ Let’s Go Crazy

“Women not girls rule my world

I said they rule my world
Act your age, mama (Not your shoe size)
Not your shoe size” ~ Kiss
“How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry” ~When Doves Cry
Blog post Life Lessons from Prince by Trinka Polite

“Do I believe in God?
Do I believe in me?
Some people wanna die
So they can be free” ~Controversy

“Don't worry 'bout tomorrow, don't worry 'bout your pain
Don't cry unless you're happy, don't smile unless you're blue
Never let that lonely monster take control of U

Be glad that U r free
Free 2 change your mind
Free 2 go most anywhere, anytime
Be glad that U r free” ~Free

“Hey, check it all out
Better look now or it just might be 2 late (just might be 2 late)
My lucks gonna change tonight
There's gotta be a better life
Take a picture sweetie
I ain't got time 2 waste

Oh baby I'm a (star)
Might not know it now”~ I’m a Star
“Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out for something new”~Purple Rain

Block Identity Theft

In all my years of counseling, I've found something to be true. The root of most emotional and mental conflicts involves the human desire to be loved, needed, and seen. The turmoil grows when one or more of those desires is insufficient or missing. As a response, we may begin to exhibit extremes in one or the other.  

Tell me if this sounds familiar; People who are in love with "love." Someone being described as "too needy." I admire creativity and individuality, but sometimes ostentatious behavior may hint at a longing. The longing may develop into unexpressed anger. I can't tell you how many ways unexpressed anger manifests itself in our lives. Depression, bullying, overeating, people-pleasing, and working compulsively to name a few. Transparent Moment! This is not only knowledge gained from my profession, but I'm speaking from personal experience. 

The key for me--which I believe is the key for all of us--is uncovering the lie! Feel free to comment with your thoughts, but the lie is that the human desire to be loved, needed, and seen is only fulfilled from a place or source outside ourselves. No, my friends. We first need to know who we are on a spiritual level. Spend time communing with God our Creator so we understand His original plans for our lives. Develop a relationship with Holy Spirit to develop our gifts to serve the world. Talk with our Saviour Yeshua, our joint heir, in order to portray the image in which we were created--our heavenly Father's.

Then and only then will we interact with the world from a place of knowing we're already loved; our gifts are needed; and our image is a reflection of our heavenly Father! So what does all this mean, Trinka? I'm glad you asked. Thank you.

It means the human desire to be loved, needed and seen starts within, taking away the power for the world to tell us what love is, give us our purpose or define who we are. Connecting and building a relationship with the Holy Trinity, we are now equipped to fulfill these desires based on spiritual truth and reject anything contrary to it!

Here are some scriptures on spiritual identity which I enjoy:
God's Love
Psalm 139: 14-18
John 1:12
Ephesians 1:4-5

Which scriptures keep you grounded in your spiritual identity?
