Finding God inside the Holy Temple of Your Body

My poem below is also a prayer from my autobiographical poetry book, A Rape Survivor's Spiritual Journey: My Poems and Practical Exercises, which will be released soon.  I recommend praying it out loud whenever possible because there's power in the spoken as well as the written word.  Say these  words knowing that God lives inside the holy temple of your body waiting for you to call on Him.

 

The Spirit of God lives and breathes with me.

I breathe with the Spirit.

I AM one with the Spirit.

I AM God’s Spirit.

 

At all times and in all places, the Spirit of God lives and breathes inside me.

I breathe with the Spirit.

I AM one with the Spirit.

I AM God’s Spirit.

 

The Spirit of God empowers me with the strength to

I breathe with the Spirit.

I AM one with the Spirit.

I AM God’s Spirit

Change Your Beliefs, Change Your Life

Yes, you can change your life.  I've done it.  Keep in mind that it doesn't happen overnight because you didn't get where you're at overnight.  I recommend seeking the professional help of a therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist.  If you're willing to work hard and make it a priority to change your life, you can.

Try it out with just one of your goals.  Write one of your goals in one column and the steps you need to take to achieve that goal in another column on separate lines.  Be specific.  If you start coming up with reasons why you can’t achieve each step toward your goal, list those reasons in another column next to the step to which it applies.

Then, write your beliefs that reflect those reasons and start thinking about how you need to change your beliefs to achieve your goal.  What should you believe about your destiny?  Remember, your destiny begins with what you believe.

Believe.  Receive.  Achieve.
