How God Showed Me “ It’s No Secret” James P. Watson ( Part 1)

My miracle involves my life over the past few years. My name is James Patrick Watson and I live near Hye, Texas. I have just finished writing my first book titled, “It's No Secret: The Christians Guide to God’s Law of Attraction.”

It should be published and available next month. I decided to write the book after I first saw the movie “The Secret” and later read the book by the same name.

For those of you not familiar with it, the book became an amazing success, appearing on the New York Times Best Seller list for two and a half years. It introduced the “Law of Attraction” (LOA) into popular culture in a way like never before. I found the LOA to be easy to accept, as I had almost always been very goal-oriented and positive-minded.

I also noticed as I observed numerous individuals very close to me who were the opposite, that they were negative in their attitudes and expectations. I was able to compare how things unfolded in our lives, most often according to our attitudes.

After seeing the movie, I tried to share it with other Christians, friends and family both, only to meet with rejection. I was told that the message of “The Secret,” as well as the LOA, was New Age and Humanistic and that Christians should not accept it.

As a result of this rejection, I believe God gave me a mission to write this book and reveal that, as the Creator of everything, He was responsible for all natural, universal laws, including the Law of Attraction. In this way, I could give Him the Glory and express gratitude for his blessings, as we all should try to do. After all, Christians don't deny that God created the Law of Gravity, do they? They cannot choose whether to believe in or follow the Law of Gravity without endangering themselves.

Did We Fail Him? Philip Seymour Hoffman

Yesterday, my secretary shared the sad news with me that a beloved actor that I have been watching over the years died. I am a fan of Philip Seymour Hoffman. I loved him, he was a great actor. I had a conversation with my assistant earlier today and my comment to her was, “Did we fail Philip Seymour Hoffman?”

Although I really haven’t kept myself abreast of what was going on in his life, from a media perspective that is, I know that there are many who have. He apparently had a life-long battle with drug addiction. I was wondering if we “failed:” him. As Christians, we should be praying adamantly for the Philip Seymour Hoffman’s of the world. In fact, when you read in the news or hear about someone who is struggling with an addiction or other problems, our first step should be “intercession”. We should have been offering up “intercessory prayer” to God for this man’s life, sending up petitions for mercy in prayer asking God to set him free from the demons of addiction and everything that facilitated and created the desire in the first place. This type of prayer is not just sent up once but over and over again until he was free. He was very valuable to his family, community and the world. We Christians are the “light of the world,” this is our watch. “For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night” (1 Thessalonians 5:5). God put us here just for situations like this one. Next time you read or hear about someone whose life is being destroyed, pray. Everyone pray.
