The Good and Beautiful Echoes

"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness..." Matthew 6:33
Who are you?
I'm a child of God, indwelt by Christ.
Where are you?
Living in the Kingdom of God.

Be like Jesus
Learn his stories
Study his parables
Live like he did, prayer time, moments of solitude, slow down, live in the present moment.

Butterfly Metamorphosis.
Transform your soul
from a Caterpillar into a Butterfly.

Transform your narratives to be in line with Jesus's narrative.

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying,
“Repent, for the kingdom of
heaven is at hand.”

Matthew 4:17
In other words:

"Change the way you have been thinking,
a life of intimacy and interaction with God is in your midst."

Soul Training exercises:
1. Get 8 hours of sleep
2. 5 minutes of solitude every day
3. Count your Blessings
4. Memorize Psalm 23
5. Lectio Divina Matthew 9:12-13
6. Margins
7. Read entire Gospel of John
8. Solitude
9. Slow Down

God is good, all the time, God is good

The Lord's prayer:
God is Present, Pure, Powerful, Provides, Pardons, and Protects.

Our Father in Heaven [GOD IS PRESENT]
Hallowed be your name [GOD IS PURE]
Your kingdom Come your will be done [GOD IS POWERFUL]
On earth as it is in Heaven
Give us this day our daily bread [GOD PROVIDES]
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors [GOD PARDONS]
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil [GOD PROTECTS]
