Charity Suffereth Long and Is Kind

for-tcms-3

I seek to emulate Jesus Christ in the way He loved.  The pure love of Christ is called Charity.  We read about this love in the Bible, 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13.  In the next few days, watch for posts about this vital attribuite of Christ.  When we seek to emulate Him by loving as he loved, we change hearts, are happier, and each of us can be a more positive INfluence on others.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind.  –1 Corinthians 13: 4

TODAY’s ChangeMakers can be very kindhearted.  It is important, however, to be sure there are no misunderstandings about this attribute.

In Oct 1991, Aileen Clyde stated it this way, “It is not charity or kindness to endure any type of abuse or unrighteousness that may be inflicted on us by others. God’s commandment that as we love him, we must respect ourselves, suggests we must not accept disrespect from others. It is not charity to let another repeatedly deny our divine nature and agency. It is not charity to bow down in despair and helplessness. That kind of suffering should be ended, and that is very difficult to do alone. …We must be willing to let others help us.”

4-kind

TODAY’s Affirmation:  I am TODAY’s ChangeMaker*.  Although I may have suffered a lot of things, I am kind to myself as well as to others.

Spiritual Vitality: Remember His Amazing Grace

Spiritual Vitality Tip:  Sustain your HOPE.
Remember Christ’s Amazing GRACE.

God can help you!

I was reading this morning the words of Alma.

“The Lord God hath power to do all things which are according to His word.”

He counseled people who lived long ago to:

“…be humble, and be submissive and gentle; easy to be entreated; full of patience and long-suffering; being temperate in all things; being diligent in keeping the commandments of God at all times; asking for whatsoever things ye stand in need, both spiritual and temporal; always returning thanks unto God for whatsoever things ye do receive.

And see that ye have faith, hope and charity, and then ye will always abound in good works.”

Let us put ourselves right with God.
Let us keep ourselves there.

Enjoy this beautiful music!

Happy Memorial Day. All Gave Some. Some Gave All.

On this Memorial Day, with gratitude, I listened to Ronald Regan’s INspiring words.

These are just a couple take-aways that touched my heart:

“The price for this freedom, at times, has been high, but we have never been unwilling to pay that price. Those who say we’re in a time when there are no heroes, they just don’t know where to look.”

Martin Treptow went to France in 1917
and served with the famed Rainbow division.
“There on the Western front, he was killed, trying to deliver
a message between batalions under heavy artillary fire.
We’re told, that on his body was found a diary.
On the flyleaf under the heading my pledge, he had written these words,

America must win this war, therefore
I will work.
I will save.
I will sacrifice.
I will endure.
I will fight cheerfully
as if the issue of the whole struggle
depended upon me alone.”
***

Regarding freedom:

“We must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon that our adversaries in today’s world do not have. It is a weapon that we, as Americans, do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and pray upon their neighbors.

As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it, we will not surrender for it, now –or ever. We are Americans.” ~Ronald Regan

All gave some. Some gave all. With Gratitude, HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

Food for thought:
I loved hearing about Private Treptow’s Pledge.
How will you take INspired action?
What is your pledge?
Are you keeping a journal?

Hope for those with addictions and serious troubles

Here is a message of hope for those with addictions.  Other serious problems are addressed in video #2.  Both videos are full of hope and encouragement.

Video 1:  You Will Be Freed

Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, all can be transformed, cleansed, and freed from addiction. (It’s a short 2 minutes and 55 seconds.  Well worth the time. )

Video 2:  Look to the Light

The warmth these people speak of in the video below is “the pure love of Christ” spoken of in the video above.

“Wherever He has taken me is always for a better result.”  “There is an eternal plan here.” “The world has a chance to accept His love and follow Him.”

May God continue to keep you in his watchcare on your journey to Him.

Forgiveness: Reclaimed

“There is no habit, no addiction, no rebellion, no transgression, no apostasy, no crime exempted from the promise of complete forgiveness. That is the promise of the atonement of Christ” (Boyd K. Packer, “The Brilliant Morning of Forgiveness,” Ensign, Nov. 1995, 20).

About Carolyn Calton

Full commitment to God is in my heart today.  I was very moved by this video.  I know there’s people in the world whose own lives feel like a recurring 9/11 everyday.  They suffer effects from abuse, addiction, divorce, death of a loved one and other mountainous traumas and want to be happy, whole and healed. They are the Generational ChangeMakers I seek at www.FamilyTreeQuest.com.  Watch the looks on the faces of those in this video.  Do you know someone with the same look in their eyes?  Maybe it’s you.  JOIN THE QUEST at www.familytreequest.com Help is on its way.

You’re Not Alone

My heart goes out to those who are entrapped in the vicious cycles of addiction, suffering and pain.  Christ is the Master Healer.  It’s interesting to me that we try everything to get rid of the physical and emotional feelings that distrub us, yet often forget that it’s our Elder Brother, Jesus Christ (son of God the Father-our creator), who makes the way for us to be healed spiritually so that joy and happiness can once again be ours.  It’s my hope that this video reaches those who are forlorn, unhappy and seeking the way back to being whole and healed.

Thank you to Betsy Love who pointed out this video on Facebook.
