How To Not Miss The Beauty Of Life!

There is beauty all around us, we only have to open our eyes to see and observe all that is amazing, wonderful and majestic. There is music for us to dance to, if we will just turn our ears to hear and listen for the beat of a different drum, the wind as it blows through the trees or the sound of nature as it awakes and plays with the day. There is pleanty to touch us, heal us and lift us up, if and when we allow our hearts to feel and experience the love that surrounds us, the hope that fills us and the miracles that bless us.

Our probelm is that we often miss the seeing, hearing and feeling of life because we allow ourselves to become distracted by the illlusions of life that convince us that life is something other than what it really is. We think that life is work, posessions or opinions, when in reality, life is life. There is an old saying that says: “Be careful or you might miss the forest for the trees.” I say: “Be careful or you might miss life because of what you think life is supposed to be.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.” -Psalms 19:1-3

If we will take the time to reframe our thinking, so that we might tap back into the way we were originally created to think, we will see beatuiful manifestations of divinity all around us. We will hear the sweet music of all of creation singing praise to our purpose. And we will feel, really feel the gorgeous feelings that words cannot even come close to explaining.

We are surronded by evidence that reminds us that this world is an amazing place, filled with incredible, gifted people. That there are amzing opportunities and unexplainable miracles waiting just around the next corner. Embrace the senses that God has given you and open yourself up to experience the flow of incredible blessings that make life worth the living.

Stop hiding in the distractions of busyness and missing the miracles that visit to fellowship with you, grow you and bless you. Nature surrounds us with beauty, friendships bless us with healing tenderness and miracles do not have to be seen or heard, only experienced. Open yourself up to the something better you were created for and enjoy this amazing gift called life… You will be glad you did!

You Are Special!

The big battle of our lives is with our ego. The battle of our ego happens when we get caught up in believing that we are what we do, what we have or what we think other people think of us. It distracts us from the reality that we are all special creations of the Most High God…

When we learn to step out of the battle with ego and instead focus our energy on the reality of who we are and what we are created to do, we find purpose that drives us to the higher levels of living and allows us to enjoy the blessings of the supernatural.

“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.” -John 1:12-13

Our power to live does not come from the world we live in, but from our Creator, the same One, who created this world we live, learn, laugh and love in. Stop for a moment and let that thought sink in, so that you may realize just how amazing and majestical you are…

You are created by God, in the image of God and gifted with the power of God. God is your source and spirit, your everything that really matters. If you want to discover and tap into your true identity, then you must begin and end with the beginning and the ending and that is God.

God is your home and it is from this place of safety and shelter that we find the empowerment to go on into whatever it is that lay before us. From this place, right, good and light flow to overcome wrong, bad and darkness to make the impossible – possible.

Our thoughts, actions and feelings become one with our Creator and our created purpose to guide us into the fulfillment of our destinies. Find the rest you have been looking for, by understanding that there is nothing for you to do, but submit, let go and let God.
