I don’t know about you, but there have been times in my life when I really needed God and it just seemed like he wasn’t there for me. Then, as I reflected on my relationship with God, I realized that I was giving lip service to the idea of my relationship with God but I wasn’t really including Him. I was asking Him for help and to solve my problems but I wasn’t listening to Him or trying to use His guidance. All I was really doing was wanting God to follow my instructions and do things my way. I’m not proud that it took a near death experience for me to recognize how inferior my ways were and how clearly superior God’s intelligence was in comparison to my own. Even now, I have to catch myself at times. It is easy to fall back into bad habits. I don’t tell God what to do but I am not always as good as I need to be at listening and seeking His will. If you have the same problem, I hope you will take the time to listen to the best friend and mentor any of us could ever have – our Father in heaven.
We are born creators. You might say we a are chip off of the old block! God is most definitely a Creator and we are most definitely His children! I not only witnessed God’s creative perfection in heaven but I also witnessed our amazing intelligence and the glorious abilities and strengths that we have been endowed with. I believe that we each have an innate desire to create. What I create may be different than what you create but that’s part of the plan. We each have our own unique contribution to make to this world! I hope and pray that you are manifesting your positive creative abilities and enjoying every minute!
Is it difficult for you to be yourself? Do you have a hard time believing that you are beautiful? I believe it is such a blessing that we each are so unique! Even identical twins have their own one-of-a-kind fingerprint! I think this is just one way that God communicates to us His belief in us and His ability to know us and love us each for ourselves! If you find believing in yourself or your beauty challenging, I hope you will make time for yourself and go to your Creator in prayer. Ask God to bless you with an understanding of His love for you and the gifts He has given you. Ask Him to help you see yourself as He sees you. If you are willing to watch and listen, I know that you will find your experience a blessing in your life!
With the presidential election coming up in our near future, I have spent more than a few moments thinking about the state of our country and the principles this nation was founded on. Our Founding Fathers knew who to seek guidance from. They knew the blessings that come from seeking God in their lives. They were not perfect men but they were godly men. Our country’s strength was and ever will be determined by our trust in God. May we all trust in God and may we elect those officials who do the same.
In Proverbs 23 it says, ” For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”. Think of the heart – the emotions and the conviction that comes from the heart. The scripture seems to address what a man is. However, I believe that it also talks to what a man (any individual) can become. Is there something in your heart that you are passionate about? A cause? A quest? I hope you will listen to the positive whisperings of your heart – those whisperings that speak of doing wonderful and positive things! That is your divine guidance speaking to you! That is your spirit and your Creator attempting to communicate the amazing potential that you are meant to realize! Remember, if you can believe it, you can achieve it!
