Coming Full Circle…

fb_img_1481132785032The Sacred Journey symbol of the cross, dove and lotus was inspired from my spiritual journey. Like any other relationship, the relationship we have with God has to be nourished and active.

A few years ago, I had a lot of questions regarding my spiritual path. For every answer, it seemed, I had three more questions for God. Those questions led me on the Path to studying the core philosophies of Buddhism. Buddhism, as a philosophy, does not believe in a Higher Power or deity. It forces you to hold a mirror to your face and take responsibility for your actions, without placing blame on anyone or anything else.

Over the months and weeks of studying, it was the act of me taking responsibility for my actions and looking at my life that led to a still small voice in my heart to say, “Marcia, I loved you so much that I paid it ALL.”

It was in that moment that I began to weep and worship at the same time. So what is this post about today, you ask? Never forget the Grace, Majesty and Power of the Cross. Jesus paid it ALL. I am grateful to God for using Buddhism to help me come full circle, back to the Cross.

The chorus from one of my favorite gospel songs says, “Jesus, I’ll never forget what you’ve done for me. Jesus, I’ll never forget how you set me free. Jesus I’ll never how you brought me out. Jesus, I’ll never forget, no never.”

Namaste and God bless,

Rev. Marcia
