Faith Without Works Is Dead

You may or may not know that I have been working diligently on my money story. I committed to 30 days of seriously getting the negative energy out. I have also been putting this in an e-course that you can join for free. I have been writing what I have been doing for these 30 days.

As I've gone on I realize there are some things that would be better to have from the very beginning or in a different order. This is why I will be editing the e-course when I am done. When this happens I will be launching the Money Matters E-Intensive Course and it will require an investment.

Today, I had a great breakthrough and I would like to share my thoughts with you.

I have noticed that a lot of times when I have done my exercises for the money e-course I am finding that I write "I am lazy." Today, was no different except that I then added this thought, a term I have heard my whole life, "Faith without works is dead." It comes from the Bible, James 2:26.

I had a lot of emotion come up with this. I decided that I must be misunderstanding something. I decided to look up the antonym of the word lazy, this being the term that comes up a lot. Some were industrious, lively, careful, caring, concerned, and diligent.

I started crying. An understanding and relief filled my soul. I saw how I all of these traits and more importantly I saw that scripture in a new light.

Consider this, "Faith without diligence is dead." It wasn't that I worked as hard as I could. It wasn't that I did all the shoulds put on me by myself and others. It is a matter of having faith and then keeping it going. Follow the commandments, act when prompted by the spirit, keep my eye on the Kingdom, do my personal best, etc.

I do my best every day. That is all I can do. I hope you too find peace with this different perspective.

In love and light,
