If you want to get upset and mad at the world, you don’t have to look hard to find a reason. Motivation for madness is everywhere and easy to get a hold of. But life is so much better when we learn to choose happy over mad, sad or any of the other negative emotions that we might come up with.
‘Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” -Philippians 4:8
I can almost guarantee you that you will find more than enough reasons to get mad, upset, disgruntled, frustrated, disgusted and ticked. I am pretty sure that at some point in your day you will experience something that makes you angry and causes you to want to shift your focus off of the positive and onto looking for someone to accuse, blame and judge for why your life is not working the way you want to.
We have been given an incredible gift. The gift of choosing the world which we choose to live in. We can choose to live in a world of negativity and miss the incredible opportunities of blessing we were created for. Or we can live in the world of positivity and grab hold of and experience the fulfillment and blessing we were gifted for.
Do not waste this gift. Open it, enjoy it and share it. You will be glad you did…
Love is the gift I have been given by my Creator. God is love and I am created in God’s image, so I too am love. I will not keep myself to myself, but will share who and what I am with everyone I can, in every way I can. As I walk in and out of the challenges of life today, I will walk in with the love I share and I will walk out with the love shared with me by others.
“Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.” -1 John 2:9-10
Love is one of the great blessing of life and our blessings are grown in the giving and receiving. When I enter into a place, my goal will be to leave it better than I found it and the best way I know to do this is by sharing the love and light I have received from my Creator. My love will chase away fear and the light of my love will reveal and overcome the chaos of life.
If I encouter fear, then I will overcome it with love and if I encounter darkness, I will overcome it with light. I choose to live an empowered life of growth, victory and blessing over a life of decline, defeat and curses. I am an overcomer, an achiever, a dreamer and a winner.
Love is the way! And so I am dedicated to the miraculous as I embrace joy by living in the miraculous power of love and light… Join me and let’s make this world a better place…
I love to hike and one of the things that I have learned about hiking is that I have to hike at my own pace or I do not enjoy the experience. I like to hike with others, but I can try to keep up with them or slow down so they can keep up with me, because then I get frustrated and miss the joy of the moment. We hikers have a saying: “Hike Your Own Hike!” which means to hike the way you want to hike – fast or slow, hard or soft, at your pace that allows you to enjoy every moment of the adventure.
Life is a lot like hiking on a trail, but so many of us are missing the joy of life, because we are trying to hike someone else’s hike. We look at “so and so” and they seem to have it made and so we try to hike their hike by looking like them, acting like them, trying to have what they have and we end up totally frustrated and can’t figure out why, so we select another “so and so” and begin the process all over, only to expereince the same frustration and miss out on the joy we were created for and that was created for us.
“ The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.” -Psalms 37:23-24
We have to learn in this life to hike our own hike or live our own life. Stop trying to fit in and be happy just being yourself. I am going to let you in on a little secret: Not everyone in this life is going to like you. Not everyone is always going to agree with your choices. Not everyone is going to applaude your successes and understand your failures, but your life is not for everyone else, it is for you and the people that God brings across your path for you to bless and be blessed by, while you are on your journey. When you learn this, accept this and begin to live this, you will expereince the miracle of joy, happiness and fulfillment.
Look for your trail and then once you get on it, hike it the way you want to hike it and enjoy every step of the amazing journey that has been marked out for you…
