Education, Information, Spiritual Care
Touch of Life Care is a non-profit Wholistic Interfaith Endeavor. Our mission is to provide Spiritual Care, Health Education, and Information with God’s Blessings and Unconditional Love."For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:8) Open your mind and heart for receiving God’s love. The way to God is within each person and is revealed as we ask for Holy guidance. We increase our insight and understanding of God’s reality as we pray and seek to enter His Holy and Sacred Place. Within this unique peaceful place, all unite as one. It is a field of complete peace and unconditional Love. This is the Light of God where we find inner Peace and Healing.
“The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God.” (Psalm 14:1-3) As you meditate and rest in a peaceful state of mind, become aware of the Holy Spirit always surrounding and protecting you within this spiritual dimension of God’s Love and Peace. In this place, become aware that there is a true spiritual reality within and beyond this material world. You enter a doorway to God’s reality. Meditative prayer is a method of communication with God in a sacred spiritual kingdom. Cross the threshold into this awareness with the intention of receiving insight and blessed guidance. “One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple.” (Psalm 27:3-5)
