Never Alone!

I love country music and one of my favorite country music singers is Willie Nelson. One of my favorite songs that Willie sings is “You Were Always On My Mind!” in which he laments all the things he did not do that he should have done, but still wants to make it clear that the object of his desire was always on his mind. It’s a beautiful song and a beautiful thought.

It’s a thought that is reality for us with our Creator. We are always on the mind of God, because God is always with us. There is no where we can go to escape God’s presence and power. We may not sense that God is here, but that is usually because we are not looking or listening.

God is always at work in our lives and on our behalf. God invites us to join in that work of creation and manifest miracles for ourselves and others, if we are paying attention.

7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. 12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. Psalms 139:7-12

There is always something happening, life is a work in progress and the pieces are constantly moving and rearrangin themselves, so that God/Love may be revealed and life purpose fulfilled.

We live in a great big Universe and are a vital part of the divine tapestry that continually invites us into the soul work of growing in and with the blessing we were created for and that was created for us. God could never forget you, because you are the stuff of God – made in God’s image and endowed with supernatural power.

Open your eyes to God’s guidance. Open your ears to God’s direction. Open your heart to God’s blessings by remembering that we are all ONE, never separated, but always complete together and this is what we were created for…

Becoming Best Friends With Yourself!

Benjamin Franklin said: “A true friend is the best possession.” You can have a bank account full of money, live in the biggest house in the neighborhood, drive the newest, fanciest and coolest car, dress in the finest styles and still be lonely, miserable and frustrated with life. On the other hand, you can live in a one room shack, with little to no money, walk everywhere you go, wear the same clothes every day and be connected, happy and fulfilled in life if you have just one good friend.

Someone said: “To have a friend, you have to be a friend!” And that is some excellent and very true advice. I want to take it a step further today and say: “To be a friend to others, you first have to be a friend to yourself.” If you want others to love you, accept you and walk with you, then you have got to love yourself, accept yourself and be willing to walk with yourself wherever “yourself” may be taking you.

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” -John 15:12-13

Live life long enough and we will face rejection. Rejection hurts and is not fun at all, but if we pay close attention when rejection comes our way, we will realize that it often starts with us. So many times, we waste away our lives and living waiting on someone, anyone to accept us, love us and be a friend with us, when we don’t even accept ourselves, love ourselves or be a friend with ourselves.

We need to acknowledge our weaknesses and learn from them, but we don’t need to allow them to keep us from being our very own best friend. After all, what is a good friend? A good friend is one, who accepts us, not matter how screwed up we may be. We cannot expect others to love and accept us, if we do not love and accept ourselves. So start a new friendship today with yourself. Love yourself like you have never been loved. Accept yourself by learning and growing from your mistakes and by appreciating and amplifying your successes.

When we begin to see the good in ourselves, then others will see it too. What we focus on gets the attention, so focus on what makes you a good friend by being a good friend to yourself …

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.
