Jesus — we will not forget
who you are
and what you’ve done for us.
“Where You Go I Go”
Where You go I go What You say I say What You pray I pray What You pray I pray
Jesus only did what He saw You do He would only say what he heard You speak He would only move when He felt You lead Following Your heart, following Your spirit How could I expect to walk without You When every move that Jesus made was in surrender
I will not begin to live without You For You alone are worthy, You are always good You are always good
Where You go I go What You say I say God What You pray I pray What You pray I pray Though the world sees and soon forgets We will not forget who you are And what you’ve done for us, what you’ve done for us
Kim Walker-Smith Testimony about God’s love and How He Loves.
Each of us may embody a personal holiness. Kim’s story may seem quite strikingly bizarre to you. It is certainly not common even for religious. I am happy to have found it and I greatly appreciate her openness and willingness to share her story. She is one of my favorite entertainers and I accidentally found the testimony a few months ago during a search for her music. I’ve shared other personal accounts of visions before — a couple on this blog that are NDE stories. I’ve read or seen video testimony of many others. There are various differences. I am beginning to understand that each individual seems to have a different experience; perhaps different people will experience holiness differently.
Today, being a day of the holy week, I wanted to point out that there are 42 bible verses (at least) that address the fact of a relationship with God. I’ll go the easy way and refer to what I found in a topic atOpenBible.info. Readers may be noticing that I haven’t been writing much — right you are — most of my blog for these past few weeks is from news and video. I’m busy on some important research and development and the posts I am sharing are related to my development. So, meantime, here is a beautiful song that I love:
“Researchers used brain scans to analyze the thought process of people with ‘high justice sensitivity’. By using afunctional magnetic resonance (fMRI) brain scanning device, they studied the brain activity as the subjects watched videos showing behavior that was morally good or bad like seeing a person put money in the beggar’s cup or kick the beggar’s cup away. They were asked how much they would blame or praise the person in the video and to complete questionnaires that assessed cognitive and emotional empathy and their justice sensitivity.
Those who scored high on the justice sensitivity assigned significantly more blame when asked to evaluate scenes of harm and also praised more the act of an helping person. But it was the brain scans that surprised the scientists.
During the behavior-evaluation exercise, people with high justice sensitivity showed more activity in the parts of brain associated with higher order cognition as compared to an average subject whereas the areas of brain concerned with emotional processing were not affected at all. Thus proving that individuals sensitive to justice are cognitively driven, not emotionally as everyone thinks.
So the search of justice does not primarily come from the sentimental motivations like portrayed rather it comes from reason and mental sophisticated analysis.
When evaluating good actions, a high activity in the regions of brain involved on decision making, motivation and reward was shown, answering why some people react more strongly to justice related situations and why they value justice more than others. The findings also suggest that individuals make judgement about behavior based on how they process the reward value of good actions as compared to bad actions.”
How do you suppose people are coming to higher-consciousness about social justice?
If you have been following my blog, you may guess that I believe it isn’t by accident — I’m pretty darn sure its because this is what we are doing while we are getting more spiritually fit and mindfully attuned and prayerfully loving. We are changing our brains and our genetics. We are evolving. We are learning and teaching that it is good to love being loving and compassionate. We are learning that we may even have compassion for people that are awful (and of course still have legal justice)… its work; yes it is… its God’s work.
My mission is to promote loving; not religion. You may also though enjoy the remainder of my post today. I hope so.

Sermon: Impatience and fear
Program Description Women’s Conference – Session 2 – August 18, 2011 – Under the theme “What If…”
“My hunger for God
far outweighs the hunger
to understand or to have all the answers.”
Bless Your Holy Name; Jesus!
Thanks for visiting.
As I face myself in the mirror… I’m looking for holiness within my human face… that will come along.
The past has no power over the present moment. I may choose my own interpretations and if I choose a spiritual solution, I may be free of the past… or… choose to submit to the lesson. I need to be in the present to do this — in the moment of choice. One thing I find uplifting and enlightening is to trust in God; to trust also in what Jesus taught; and to very consciously and deliberately affirm and invite into my heart and my mind, His Holy Spirit.
(Jesus is speaking) “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Since that day, I’ve been so wondering and cherishing and thinking about positive qualities and training myself in the moment to hold His Love in my heart.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” He claimed attributes belonging only to God; to be able to forgive people of their sin, free them from habits of sin, give people a more abundant life and grant them eternal life in heaven. Unlike other teachers who focused people on their words, Jesus pointed people to himself. He did not say, “follow my words and you will find truth.” He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through me.”
In 2005, Walker’s “powerful voice won her $25,000 cash in a competition called “So You Want to Be a Star.” As Kim puts it “Holy Spirit is my friend.”
Kim is considered a forerunner in a worship referred to as prophetic worship. The new style is much more raw and spontaneous in nature than most contemporary Christian music. Her music has grown in popularity over the past few years. Kim is a member of the band Jesus Culture, a youth worship band that hosts multiple worship conferences around the country.
I am happy to feature Kim Walker-Smith and the scripture, 2 Timothy. I appreciate her youth leadership role in her home town church and her worship music as well.
Hold fast the form of sound words,
which thou hast heard of me,
in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
As I face myself in the mirror… I’m looking for holiness within my human face… that will come along…
I was looking deeper than at my face. I was facing myself just as I’d been doing many dozens of times before, but this is what I need to share — it was different this time. I was looking through myself and beyond the past of myself, even faster than the speed of light it was. I was really this time in acceptance that I’ve been doing the best that I can do. I know darn well that nothing that I can or did do or even will do makes me worthy of God’s Grace; no matter if I even by some chance may do one thing even perfectly. In fact, I wouldn’t have to work at it to tear up my mental image of myself doing the best that I can — recalling times that I was mean or worse even.
I’ve been so wondering and cherishing and thinking about positive qualities and training myself in the moment to hold His Love in my heart.
Tearing myself up didn’t work. I’ve done that. These recent years, I’m praying and cherishing God’s Holy Love.
Seeing past my shortcomings — its time to give this a try — focus on His Love and happiness and that living in the now awareness that compels strong connection to Holy Jesus — is what is best for me and anyone.
I want to see only His Love in my face.
God is maker of all of heaven and earth; Of ALL that is, seen and unseen, And if we are without Him,
We do not exist.
Just one look on your face. Just one glance of your eyes. My whole world has changed. My whole world has changed. Oh I see – only to see your face. I don’t want to go anywhere without you God
… without your Presence. Oh let me see your face.
The beauty of your holiness God. Take me into the Holy Place. And only one word comes to mind. There’s only one word to describe. Only one word comes to mind. There’s only one word to describe. Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty.
God’s Love travels faster than the speed of light.
