Set Back, Jumps Forward, Being Me

Set Back:   So, I love my last post because it helped me out of a slump.  Somehow I managed to forget  what I wrote and got into a place of being really angry that the job that is taking us to this new place is not the one we had hoped for.  Waste.of.time!

 So, Jumps Ahead: the slump just gave me that much more motivation to live  with more discipline and commitment to the principles I believe in, principles of faith, trust in God, acceptance, receptivity, love, and accountability.  When I allow all these principles to work in unity in my life my life runs smoothly, even when there's bumps in my planned road.  I can be at peace and filled with love in any circumstance if I keep my heart open to God's will and trust in Him while I take responsibility for my part in it.  The worst part of slipping into a lower version of myself is how I want to blame others around me and lash out at them.  I am still learning more everyday about how to support myself and be accountable, and also let others have their accountability too.  The most important thing I've learned is that when my burden is too heavy it is because I am carrying some that isn't mine and that when I try to make another person responsible for my happiness I give them one that is not theirs.  When that happens, the blame fest begins! So from now on, that is my question to myself, "Who am I making responsible for my happiness?  Is that why I'm so angry?", "Who is REALLY responsible for this?" (Hello! it's me!)  It's awesome to be accountable, it's a powerful place to be.  Making others accountable for my life and happiness makes me helpless because I cannot control another person.  Taking my responsibilities makes me powerful, and when myself is too much to handle, God is always there to help.  The key seems to be for me to stay in a place of trust with God, that makes the accountability easy, what can overpower me when God is my power?   I am so grateful for friends and family over the years who have reminded me that God is in control, that -whatever is happening- God is in it and it is for my best good and that because God planned it He is in it with me.

Being Me:  Who am I?  When I forget that I am God's daughter and not His counsellor I get into a place of pride.  I'm not talking about confidence and self-worth, I'm talking about that counterfeit that says I'm so great and so powerful that I know better than God.  When I rail against "what is" I am trying to counsel God. I know that He knows what is best for me and more than that would not allow me to suffer ANYTHING that wasn't absolutely necessary for my growth.  When I remember that, I feel His support in my "life lessons" and comfort in my sorrow, and I ask productive questions like "What am I to do first(now)?", "What do I need to learn?", "Who do I need to seek out?", etc.  When I remember I am God's daughter and that His love for me surpasses my understanding I am filled with worth, value, joy, peace, confidence, and willingness to face with optimism (or at least acceptance with hope) whatever the next direction is in my path.

I'm so grateful to be me and to know who that is.  I'm so grateful you are you. Today, I am grateful for the privilege of participation in life as God has planned it.

Change, The Known, and the Unknown

I get to move again. I have moved so many times it is no longer an adventure, it has become as routine for me as doing dished, laundry, mowing lawns, washing cars, etc. Here's what I've learned.  When I step into the unknown, it is not unknown to God.  He knows the where, who, why and how.  Every place I've lived there have been people for me to help and who have helped me.  One move the people I met taught me a lot about how to rely on God and myself because there was no support from them.  I am so grateful for that experience, I'm so grateful that God had enough trust in me to send me to a place I could learn what I needed to to get closer to Him.  Other places I've learned how to let others serve me, how to let God help me through them.  I remember one move where I was able to help another person with personal challenges that I had the info she needed to use as a springboard to her own breakthroughs because of my own personal experiences with similar issues.  I am so grateful to know that no matter what I experience in my new place, with new people, and new ideas it is the right thing for me.  I'm grateful that it is easy for me to learn my lessons as I turn to God for the wisdom, power and will to carry out my purpose in whatever place I go.  I am so grateful for the love and support I find as I travel through this life.  I am so grateful for the love I get to feel and the happiness that comes to me.  I am so grateful that my needs are always met and the times and ways are the ways that are best for me, and show me the ways I can grow. I may not always recognize that instantly, but  that's ok. I can look back at all my life and see the goodness and wisdom in the path, and know that it has been divinely guided, it is just too beautifully orchestrated to be otherwise.  I'm thankful today for the joy and peace that surpasses the heartache and grief of the past.  The memories and heartaches that used to bring pain and shame have become the sweetest treasures, the catalyst to the joy and peace that I feel today. How great is my God, and how great am I in his love.

My Imperfection is One of God's Greatest Tools

My imperfection is one of God's greatest tools. My imperfections are often the very things that lead me to the people and situations I need to be in and experience to be of service to God. My imperfections are only there to serve me and others, to bring me to the places I need to go, and to reflect to others their same imperfections. I get to let them go as soon as they are in my way enough for me to want to and as soon as it is wisdom in God to remove them.The key always seems to be in becoming willing, willing to completely and fully accept God's will for me. Some people are drawn to me BY my imperfections, yes others are repelled, but sometimes I think God lets me keep them because they are still useful in His purpose for me. So, I get to be grateful for the times things don't work out the way I want despite my BEST efforts, I get to be grateful for that character trait that I've begged God to remove from me, because He would if I/He were done with it. I get to continue to do my best and trust that God's purpose for me is better than my own and let go of blame and frustration over things not going as I planned, they are going as God planned. I get to be grateful and forget about how these imperfections make me look to others, it is none of my business what others think, even about me. I get to be grateful that when I turn to God for His opinion of me, there is always love and acceptance. When I do my best, there is absolute assurance for me that whatever came to be was meant to be.

I Came From a Divine Creator

The more I learn about the universe, the patterns confirm to me the existence and nature of my God. When I study biology, especially the human body I am continually impressed with a deepened understanding and knowledge of God. To me, all things lead back to Him, there is no fear to explore because the truth of what I know will not change. Truth brings light, knowledge and understanding and leads one on to further light, knowledge and understanding. I am not a creature on this earth trying to figure things out. I am a child of God on the earth learning and growing with the guidance and nurturing of a living and loving God who is always present, but never interfering, who will help me to the degree I allow him and who will allow me to experience the lessons necessary for my growth and understanding so that I can learn to be strong and wise and powerful as He is. Because I came from Him, I can be like Him, a creator of my destiny and my life, and a teacher and creator with others. This is my truth, it is a truth I share with my children, there is nothing that will hold them back in this life if they know they have the power and capacity given them from a real God who knows all and wants to help them to know all too. I know I can question Him. I believe He welcomes the questions because He wants to give me the answers. I also believe this is all dependent on my willingness to receive and act on the answers I get.

Living in the Loving Power of a Divine Creator

I am so grateful today for what I know about God and His love for me. My understanding of God has lead me on a glorious path to find the powerful truths that help me to conquer life as it comes and be grateful for the experience. I am so grateful today to be alive and well and aware of who I am and who God wants me to be. I have learned so much on my path and feel God wants me to share what I know. Welcome to a beautiful path of discovery and change. It is time to be full of the joy I believe God intends for all of us. My intent is to share some of that with you.

Love Always,
