"The seventh stage that leads to the perfect union with God is reconciliation and restoration. After forgiveness we are going to be restored. To what? To our original position. To restore, to reconcile, means to become friendly, peaceable again; to put hostile persons into a state of agreement or harmony, to make compatible or to compose or settle what it was that made for division. It means to resolve differences. It can mean to establish or re-establish a close relationship between previously hostile persons. So restoration means the act of returning something to an original or unimpaired condition."

Atonement is actually a spiritual deed believe it or not however as we read and process the seventh stage of atoning with self and other's we have a chance of becoming one with God. A perfect union with God is only possible if we allow ourselves to be reconciled and restored from the trauma that we went through which required us to need to atone.

Now don't forget that WE can only atone for a wrong done. For example if we have a child or friend that is living under our roof and they don't want to respect our rules of the house and we decide to put them out of our house and they don't have anywhere to go this is not a wrong done this is protecting your peace of mind. Now when that individual realize that they did a wrong they are the ones who have the option to atone with us, but not the opposite way around.

Being able to genuinely forgive someone for a wrong or misunderstanding is what we call well behavior because it allows us to maintain good health and wellness. If we look at the world today we will see that we are plagued with bad health and at the root of this unhealthy condition of the world if we trace it back to it's root with each person we will see that the common denominator is that an act took place in their lives that they never faced or atoned for.

Rather it be molestation, rape, a lie ,and from a parent standpoint not being there for your child and more. However it all can be healed with these eight steps of atonement. God is the greatest example of what WE HAVE the ability to become and DO while we are ALIVE. Don't live dead.

More next issue God willing.

Make time to protect your peace
Words of affirmations are just a few powerful things that we can do to protect your peace.
