A REPOST: GOD'S INTENTIONS

Thank you all for your kind prayers, comments, calls and private emails! I am not gone. I am here. I will however, repost for a bit as I am summoning new strength.

TRUE LOVE TUESDAY: GOD'S INTENTIONS
I believe God does not intend for Us to be blue, sad, depressed, out of sorts. I believe that God intends for Us to live an abundant life, full of grace, love, joy, music, art and faith.

For me this is key, because I am learning that when I believe I am an independent woman, disconnected from God, then discontent takes root. I notice that when the world closes in around me, I automatically feel as though I must make something happen. I must try to force an outcome that is favorable to me--having everything turning out the way that I want. Forgetting that my power, my faith, my grace securely lies with God. I must LET GO and LET GOD. Each and every time I forget this simple act of faith and love, I end up sad, blue, depressed, out of sorts.

Debbie Ford, author of "Spiritual Divorce, Divorce as a Catalyst for an Extraordinary Life" says "When we finally surrender our picture of how things should be, we make ourselves available for a new reality to emerge." So I am changing my mind to change my life. When the negative chatter starts in my head and in my heart, I am turning it off. When fear tries to creep in, I am now prepared to stand still...God's got my back. God has a bigger dream for my life and I want to be present in peace as it unfolds.

Lovebabz, your last two posts really hit home with me. They're just the reminders I needed to stop stressing over stuff I have no control over. I'm glad all is well on your end :).

So much WISDOM & TRUTH here! Seems we have to be down so low in the darkest valley of life before we remember that there is always another way to LIGHT & enLIGHTenment. Seeking The Light & the Wisdom of The Creator is always there as an option, but we sometimes get so arrogant in our day to day journey on the road that we begin to think & then believe that we, alone, are in control of the wheel.

It's not weak, but a sign of strength in surrendering control. The power to ignite real change begins in simply: 'Letting go & Letting God.'

One.

Hey Moanerplicity!

Yes. You certainly seem to understand and KNOW!

Thank you for your input and wisdom. I find it comforting.

Rain

Rain is falling all around,

It falls on field and tree,

It rains on the umbrella here,
And on the ships at sea. 。
