Like What You See?

Do you like what you see? Take a good, honest look at your life and the answer might surprise you, because it may be that you do like what you see and you didn’t think you were going to, or it may be that you do not like what you see and you thought you were going to love it. Most likely you will find yourself some where in between, with some things you love, some things you hate and some things some where in between.

I have found that the great majority of us, just sorta tend to tolerate life. We have moments we love and moments we hate, but most of us end up living the majority of our lives in the “blahs”, stuck somewhere in between love and hate. On some level, we know we were created for more, but we are just too tired to even try to think our way through it.

Every now and then though, something comes along and moves us out of our comfort zone to the place that we can’t help but take a moment or two to imagine what our life might look life if we were really living it the way we sometimes catch ourselves dreaming. We think about the person we could be, should be and would be, if???

Have you ever caught a glimpse of yourself, when you had it all together? Have you ever seen the “put together” you, full of energy, great ideas and experiencing the miraculous in all directions? When we see it, we believe it and for just a moment want it, but then life wakes us up and we go right back to thinking about what might have been?

Could I suggest a different way to look at life? Could I maybe point out another possibility of how we can possibly see things? Rather than thinking about would’ve, could’ve and should’ve – how about we see ourselves as God our Creator sees us?

In Ephesians 1:3-4 it says: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.”

God sees us from beginning to end and from end to beginning! God sees the total picture of all that we’ve been through, survived and grown from. If you are still living, then you are still a work in progress, so don’t you dare give up and don’t for one moment entertain the thought of giving in, because God has great big amazing plans for you! See it, believe it, live it – you’ll be glad you did!

The Jouney!

I’ve been thinking about the idea that there are no mistakes! There is no such thing as coincidence. Things that happen in our life are not random, no matter how much they may seem so. There is purpose to everything, which is a hard pill for us to swallow, because it’s just easier for us to believe that things happen for no reason at all, which we accept, because most of us are too lazy to invest the time to think things through from the perspective of our spirit.

We are travelling along a path, on a spiritual journey, where we get to live moment by moment, seeking to grow to the highest version of ourself. When we learn to loosen up, just live and enjoy ourselves, we begin to live in the ebb and flow of the spirit, which allows us to experience the perfection we were created for.

Robert Frost said: ”Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.”

We have a choice and our every choice has a consequence. Often we live our lives without giving any thought to our choices and the consequences tied to them. Our ego encourages us to ignore the obvious if it doesn’t fit our preconceived notions and ideas. But our choices do have consequences and sometimes the consequences are more than we are willing to live with, but the truth is: living with the hard, difficult and challenging does a work in us and through us that nothing else can accomplish.

”Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.” -James 1:2-4

What we discover on the path of life is that Heaven comes to earth through the challenges, frustrations and disappointments of life. There are no accidents, everything has a purpose and every step we take along the journey is our master teacher, offering us wisdom to grow so that we may be pure, complete and lacking nothing…

Breaking Free Of The Jaded Life!

Live in this world long enough and at some point you are going to find yourself disenchanted and jaded by the sacrifices you’ve made, which have required you to forfeit the tenderness you were created in. This does not take away from the amazingness of this world, but it does cause us to miss out, because we are not tuned in and aligned in body, mind and spirit.

Living the jaded life leads us to become mean, cynical and sarcastic, which keeps us from living in the power of supernatural blessing. Most of us that get trapped in the jaded life style do not have or make time for reflection and instead get caught up, distracted and sent in the wrong direction by judging others, becoming overly critical and toxic in our negativity.

This is not a place or way we would normally choose to live our life, but once we get on the proverbial ”rat wheel”, it is very challenging to get off. At some point we get tired of it all, give up and become stuck or we become motivated to change things no matter what.

”Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.” -Isaiah 40:28

Here’s the beautiful and amazing truth: We don’t have to learn anything new to break free of the jaded life, we simply have to believe, claim and live in the power of truths already revealed by God to us. Faith makes all things possible and the best way to grow our faith is to return to what we already know and trust, believe and have faith.

There is a door that leads to freedom from the jaded lifestyle and that door is unlocked with the key called faith. Unlock that door with your belief and watch the miraculous freedom flow from Heaven into and through your life and living…
