For years, I’ve had many requests for a card deck devoted to Jesus Christ. I wanted to wait until I could create something that would honor him in the best light. Then, I finally had the pleasure of meeting Greg Olson, a gifted artist who painted Jesus in the way I saw him: loving, kind, and happy. In our new card deck Loving Words from Jesus you’ll see Greg’s paintings of Jesus in modern and biblical settings, with the dark hair and skin of his holy land culture.
Ever since I had a born-again encounter with Jesus at age 18, I’ve had a deep, personal relationship with him. I know Jesus as an unconditional loving teacher, guide, and healer. I seek his guidance when I’m writing or speaking to an audience and for my personal life. I realize that some people unfortunately associate Jesus with hurtful experiences with organized religion; or with guilt or fear; or with patriarchal male energy; or as a mythical compilation of ancient sun deities.
My prayer is that the Loving Words from Jesus card deck will uplift and heal these wounds. Jesus isn’t a religion, he’s real and present for all who ask. He helps and loves everyone equally who calls upon him without judgment. He is non-denominational and a loving guide to all. In fact, he is the hardest-working and most available ascended master of them all.
It’s wise to partner with Jesus for guidance, healing, and comfort, especially now with all of the uncertainty in the world. I sincerely believe that if everyone on this planet developed a personal relationship with Jesus, that this world would be the gentle place that we all pray for.
This is a meditation card deck, not an oracle card reading deck. For that reason, it doesn’t come with the traditional guidebook, as I was guided to keep the messages purely from the gospel writings. Instead, the words on the cards are meant to be meditated upon, for your inner guidance and personal connection with Jesus. These cards were created for you to meditate upon the profound words from the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark, John and Luke. Some people have told me that the cards have helped them to gain a closer connection to Jesus and God.
Let’s pull a card together and reflect on this loving message from Jesus.
“Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27
As we pull this card, let the words of Jesus sink in. He is the Comforter who is here to guide you. If you are worried or upset about something, Jesus wants you to let go of your fear and worry because He is always by your side. Let’s meditate on his words together. Dig deep inside you to feel what is bothering you, pin it down, accept it and exhale it out of your mind. Jesus loves you and knows that everything will work out for you with a little bit of faith. You’ll get through it together. Let Jesus support you and fill your heart with love.
Anytime you feel stressed, depressed or are just looking for spiritual guidance, pull one of these cards to receive loving words from Jesus. These cards are a great meditation tool and I hope you love them. Jesus is always with you and here to guide you.
I’m donating a part of the proceeds from these cards to the beautiful charity, Compassion International, which helps impoverished children to survive. Please visit their website at Compassion.com and see if sponsoring a child is right for you.
