1. Our Heavenly Father

Why are we here? Where did we come from? Where are we going?

Take a piece of paper out and write down, What are some things that testify to you that there is a God!

Below is the text of the lesson. Also this is a wonderful hash tag to explore and learn how you can hear Jesus speak to you. #hearhim

Alma, a Book of Mormon prophet, wrote, “All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator” (Alma 30:44). We can look up at the sky at night and have an idea of what Alma meant. There are millions of stars and planets, all in perfect order. They did not get there by chance. We can see the work of God in the heavens and on the earth. The many beautiful plants, the many kinds of animals, the mountains, the rivers, the clouds that bring us rain and snow—all these testify to us that there is a God.

The prophets have taught us that God is the Almighty Ruler of the universe. God dwells in heaven (see D&C 20:17). Through His Son, Jesus Christ, He created the heavens and the earth and all things that are in them (see 3 Nephi 9:15; Moses 2:1). He made the moon, the stars, and the sun. He organized this world and gave it form, motion, and life. He filled the air and the water with living things. He covered the hills and plains with all kinds of animal life. He gave us day and night, summer and winter, seedtime and harvest. He made man in His own image to be a ruler over His other creations (see Genesis 1:26–27).

God is the Supreme and Absolute Being in whom we believe and whom we worship. He is “the Great Parent of the universe,” and He “looks upon the whole of the human family with a fatherly care and paternal regard” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith [2007], 39).

The Nature of God

What are some of God’s attributes?

Because we are made in His image (see Moses 2:26; 6:9), we know that our bodies are like His body. His eternal spirit is housed in a tangible body of flesh and bones (see D&C 130:22). God’s body, however, is perfected and glorified, with a glory beyond all description.

God is perfect. He is a God of righteousness, with attributes such as love, mercy, charity, truth, power, faith, knowledge, and judgment. He has all power. He knows all things. He is full of goodness.

All good things come from God. Everything that He does is to help His children become like Him. He has said, “Behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39).

Why is it important for us to understand the nature of God?

Coming to Know God

How can we come to know God?

Knowing God is so important that the Savior said, “This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” (John 17:3).

The first and greatest commandment is “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart” (Matthew 22:37).

The more we know God, the more we love Him and keep His commandments (see 1 John 2:3–5). By keeping His commandments we can become like Him.

We can know God if we will:

Believe that He exists and that He loves us (see Mosiah 4:9).

Study the scriptures (see 2 Timothy 3:14–17).

Pray to Him (see James 1:5).

Obey all His commandments as best we can (see John 14:21–23).

As we do these things, we will come to know God and eventually have eternal life.

Ponder what you can do to draw nearer to God.

Defining Scripture!

All truth belongs to our Father in Heaven. 

At its most basic level scripture then is 2 + 2 = 4

Now we add Satan to the mix telling us good is evil and evil is good. As clear as that seems isn’t that what we see from Hollywood and the Hollywood News?

But it starts with Satan saying 2+2= 2.000001. In other words 99.99% true. To be clear than that is not from our Father run Heaven as it is t 100% true.

I have friends that are into science and ancient aliens and ancient technology that built the pyramids etc. I can believe in some of what they say. The true part.

How do we tell? Prayerfully reading the core scriptures and developing a relationship with Jesus. We then can “ask” and as Jesus promised “knock and it shall be opened unto you”. And “seek and ye shall find”.

Let’s take a book as a great example. We become what we think about and what / who we tell ourselves we are. The books the secret or the power of intention are two great examples of being 99% correct. The scriptures tell us to ask God for what we need or want. Then we are told to be patient while we wait. If we simple remove the thought that “the universe” will do this or that and change that to Our Father in Heaven will answer our prayers we now have corrected these books.

Remember all things Gods created spiritually before they were manifested into this world. Thoughts are things according to Anthony Robins. And “there is creative power in our words. According to the core scriptures. “

So let’s remember to speak what we want. Only what we want. God through Jesus spoke and this world was created.

I’d encourage everyone to have a vision board. Here is a picture of mine. In the center is Jesus. Put In order

1.Jesus

2. My wife

3. My Children

4. You!

Ever in-front of me are reminders of what’s important to me. And Yes I have written plans for business and have had them for 40+ years now ever since reading think and grow rich!

Peace, love, know you are forgiven!

One of my reminders. #HearHim

And this is my vision board

Working from home as I can. I had a horrible injury on 10-26-20. Lots of surgeries. Jesus has a plan for me I am being patient as I wait for Him to tell me. Note: Jesus will tell me His plan for my new life. Just because my spine is mostly titanium now means nothing but some physical pain 24/7 now. But the best is yet to come. I am waiting for I know Jesus always answers my prayers.

Peace and love and know you are perfect as you are as God made you. God gave you all your weakness to keep you humble but has said His grace is sufficient = your sins are forgiven. And He has said believe in me and I will make the weak things strong into you! Today is the beginning of your new life!

1840 German Bible Wonderful Artwork!

Just wanted to share. At times when I am stressed I have an album on my phone “peaceful photos”. I’ll turn to it and just look at the pictures.

I know Jesus and seeing Him always brings peace. If you look at my Facebook profile my personal one I have an album there with over 200 pictures. Feel free to grab them for yourself. Anxiety runs from our savior!

I hope you like them. I think they are really detailed. Hand drawn!

Also I am starting with a bit of a prompt. In todays world the only thing we can do is get as close to Jesus as we can. #hearhim has lots of wonderful videos etc.

Peace, Love, Acceptance, forgiveness these things are of Jesus. But “he” that has the spirit of contention is of Satan as Jesus has nothing to do with contention! #HearHim

I know Jesus and seeing Him always brings peace.  If you look at my Facebook profile my personal one I have an album there with over 200 pictures.  Feel free to grab them for yourself.   Anxiety runs from our savior!

The Phantom Thread of Your Life Becomes The Iron Rod!

The Iron Rod is the word of God as we find in scriptures and all that is true. As we find our selves holding the tread of our life, and stay on its path it will bring us to the Iron Rod. Where we will become Disciples of our Savior.

As we grasp on and learn of Him we will be blesses as we will be on the path He created for our life;

Some may call it a state of “flow”, others my brother Eric will call it the “full move” I just to call it “throwing 7’s” when I was dialed in. Today I call it living the Gospel of my Savior Jesus, and having the Holy Ghost Confirm and comfort me so I can feel I am on my tread.

I don’t really like the term Phantom Thread. If you can find a great word to replace “phantom” with that describes a spiritual thread of life we each have and are to find and try to stay on please let me know in the comments… Thanks GDBLU

Old Church’s Always Remind Me of a Great Scripture

I found these two church’s in Pacific Grove.

John 17:20

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

As Jesus prayed for his apostles he gave them great blessings and power as He said he goes to be with the Father so whatever you ask in His name He will do it. Faith of course is the key that unlocks the powers of Heaven in your life.

This verse then blesses us all that believe on the words of his apostles these same blessings.

There are other verse in the scriptures that come to mind.

Such as how blessed are they that seeing believe Jesus is the son of God. But how more blessed are they that have not seen Him and believe. Aka the rest of us! Love, peace & Jesus !

GDBLU was what I was called all my life. Grant W Davis Jr, so GW it was.

this is a simple blog I hope will mostly be video based on topics of faith, manifesting miracles, insurance, sales, risk management and finance success.

I am using GDBLU and GW as I don’t have much SEO with those names at all. My name has a lot with GDI and I hundreds of pages which will distract you from what I hope to help you with here.

I have been an insurance broker for 40 years now. Even thou I can’t read or spell a single word as I am Dyslectic, memorization had become a rich unexpected blessing in my early 20’s.

I can still remember the first insurance policies I read in my training. I am very close to being able to see them. This gift of Dyslexia helped me to be in the top 1% of insurance sales people by my 5th year. So I have had many years at the top I will share with you. It has also helped me create sales systems and proposal systems in very easy ways to understand. This helped my clients by helping them understand their insurance for the first time

Why will I use video? As you can tell I don’t write well. If spell check cant find the word quickly I usually have to ask for help.

Why would you want to follow my blog? Because I don’t fail. I have had to start over more times than most, I don’t understand things when I first learn them, but then end up mastering them as I don’t give up. A key point. you can never fail if you never give up. For most your struggles wont me the same as mine. But at the same time your struggles will be the same as mine, just manifesting themselves differently. I can teach you how to spot them and overcome them as well.

  • Insurance is important to everyone. I will teach you about every type of insurance there is.
  • Sales is important to everyone even if you are not in direct sales, you present yourself everyday.
  • Faith, is key. You may of read books like the Secret, or others like it, I’ll show you how to make them work
  • Jesus, the center of my life provides peace in every storm. I’ll share the pain of the storm so you will understand peace

Thanks for following me, G.W. Davis
