what's in it for me?

Posted by rayww on August 18, 2003, at 1:10:15

Why do you go to church? When you go do you have a religious experience? Do you learn anything new? Do you learn as much from what is not said, as from what is?

What is the main difference between my church and yours? Some believe the heavens are sealed and the only word of God found on the earth is in the Bible. Others believe the heavens are open. I can't compare myself to you, but I velue things I learn from what is not said as much as from what is said, but whether it is or is not said, whatever I learn, is through revelation.

Today I (re)learned that prayers should not be asked amiss, and that any prayer if not amiss, will receive an answer. I have a favorite rocking chair in a dark corner of my house where I go to meditate and pray till I know what it is I should pray for. Once I reach that union with God where I know what it is I should be praying for, those prayers become the most powerful ones I have ever uttered, and they do receive answers, but they must be in accordance with God's will and they must usually be about other people. I keep forgetting about the good habits I once had, so must be reminded over and over. I used to do this daily and it did make a huge difference in my life. Because of church today, I am re-committed to try again. It is something I need desperately right now. That's what was in it for me today.
