Cations and Anions are both ions. The difference between a cation and an anion is the net electrical charge of the ion. Ions are atoms or molecules which have gained or lost one or more valence electrons giving the ion a net positive or negative charge.  Cations are positive Anions are Negative.

Last night Pastor Bingham spoke at length about “Unclean Spirits”. I’m always convicted when I leave his teaching but last night my tail was dutifully tucked between my legs. I realized that the definition might be equated to the definition of Cations listed above. Positive or negative energy; its all about what we put off into the atmosphere around us.

Preacher noted that the only purpose we were put on Earth was to worship the Lord in unending prayer and thanksgiving. We are then to wait for God to deliver his perfect plan for us in His Time. He cautions that we should be growing in the knowledge of the Word not the World. I  flunked the first hurdles miserably. If I’m honest with myself, as a saved Christian, my Ions are so negatively charged that I need to be working double time to be more Christlike in all things.

I find myself, more and more, caught up in work, politics of work, minutia of others “wound-ets”(because that is all anyone talks about anymore if you listen). We forget that it it NOT about us but God. The more we insist on speaking pain, suffering, and drama into the light of God’s benevolence, the more we darken it and cause our own and others ions to be negatively charged. All negatives and no positives! You don’t have to be a chemist to calculate the result of this”going nowhere” formula. No wonder so many people are sick. We have negatively charged the atmosphere (ours and others) with negative energy instead of absorbing the positive, freely given, joyful light, of our Lord and Maker. There will always be consequences (a/k/a retribution) for our actions positive or negative.

I think Pastor made all of us realize that we need to focus more, pray more, keep our eye on the true path of the soul’s mission on Earth. He suggests that when we go into our prayer space, that we contact God and make it personal, make our prayers intimate and personal. We need to petition the Lord for a better spiritual understanding and reverence of a clean spirit…. and above all wait on the Lord until He is finished.  Make your cation account… count.  Be a positive light for the world.
