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…

You Look Miraculous!

A miracle is a miracle regardless of it’s perceived size. What we might consider a small miracle is still a miracle and it’s perceived size does not take away from the majesty of it’s miraculousness. A miracle occurs when God makes the impossible possible and according to the Scriptures, nothing is impossible with God, so God has the capability to make all things possible for His glory and our blessing.

“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:26

God is in me and I am in God. When I am one with God, what is impossible becomes possible. The key that unlocks the miraculous is faith/trust/belief. My reality is influenced and created by my faith or lack of faith. I can only grab hold of what I allow myself to grab hold of through my faith/belief/trust.

My greatest enemy is myself, my lack of faith, my unwillingness to trust and my limited belief. Today, I choose to open my eyes to the love and light that surround me, empower me and bless me. I choose to believe and see the miracles and blessings that flow into and through my life and enjoy the physical, mental and spiritual growth they provide.

It’s time to grow to a better way of living! I enlarge my mind and thinking by moving outside of my comfort zone, so that I may see things I have never seen before and experience things that I at one time believed to be impossible. I open my heart to the overflowing abundance of good that I was created for and look forward to the miracles of all shapes and sizes that were created for me and that I was created for…

My Word For The Year!

A few years ago, I started thinking about a word that helped to represent my goals for the new year. Last year, I decided to put a little more focus into selecting my one word and letting it motivate and encourage my goals, rather than allowing the goals to motivate my one word. It was a pretty amazing year and the concept seemed to stick with me and encourage me in some very positive ways all throughout the year.

My word last year was SATISFIED. I first got the idea for the word from Psalm 23 – “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want…” I reasoned that if I don’t want, then I must be satisfied and this simple idea which I latched onto, became the driving force that helped me to shift my focus onto the things that were working and off of the things that weren’t working. This simple shift allowed me to empower the positive and weed out the negative that so often tended to distract and discourage. It was a very amazing year, filled with blessing and amazing opportunity.

I had planned on having my one word for 2020 picked out before the year began, but for a variety of reasons, I was just not ever able to focus in on it and figure it out. I didn’t give up, I didn’t freak out about it, I just kept the task on my list and knew that when the time was right, it would come to me. Today was the day and I now have my new word for 2020.

My word for the year is TRIUMPH, which carries with it the idea of victory, achievement, success, conquest, winning, growing, developing and becoming. It is what we were created for and is the ultimate fulfillment that we are all destined to experience.

My Scripture for the year comes from 2 Corinthians 2:14 – it says: ‘But thanks be to God, who always leads us in TRIUMPH in Christ, and manifest through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.”

My idea with this word is the encouragement to follow through, complete the things that the Spirit has laid out for me and expereince the fulfillment of accomplishment that comes with being in step with my created purpose.

I really want to encourage you to think about and discover your one word for the year. You can go to http://myoneword.org/ and it will help guide you through a simple process and give you a lot of good ideas for choosing yours… If you already have one or happen to figure your one word out, please feel free to share with me, I would love to hear it…
