Forgive, Let Go And Be Free!

I know it is probably hard for you to believe, but I have had a few folks in my life that have done me wrong. Live long enough and you will be lied to, taken advantage of and possibly left on the side of the road of life with nothing to show for any of it, but a demolished heart and a broken spirit. Most all of us have people in our life, who have done us wrong and really don’t deserve our forgiveness, but forgiveness is not just about the other person it is also about you and me.

People will come and go in your life. If you are blessed and you are, then some of them will stay and be a great asset and blessing. Some will leave, take parts of you with them and it will hurt more than words could ever describe. Not everyone you meet is going to be kind to you. Not everyone is interested in what you think or how you feel. Some of the very people you bless with mercy and grace, will turn around and slap you with pnishment and judgement, but you will survive and if you can learn to forgive, you will ultimatly thrive.

“If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave I to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. To the contrary, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” -Romans 12:18-21

Live life long enough and you will experience betrayal and it will devestate you, but I can promise you that it is not the end of your life. It will end up being an opportunity to learn and grow. And how do we grow from the things that hurt us so deeply? We practice forgiveness! I said practice, because if we want to get good at something, then we have to practice. When we forgive, we let it go and it probably benefits us more than it does the person we are forgiving, because it sets us free from all the negativity that has been eating away at us.

To forgive does not mean that you approve of what happened, it just means that you are a big enough person to learn from it and grow into the Spirit, God created you to be. It is the realization that there are things in your life, that are not for you to fix, but for you to release to your Creator, so that God might show you faithfulness.

Forgive those who have wronged you, look for their innocence and in the process you will discover your own and experience a freedom unlike anything you’ve ever dreamed of…

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!

No Limit Living!

Inside each of us is a seed of unlimited potential and it is up to us to decide what we are going to do with this seed. Will we ignore it, because we allow ourselves to get distracted by all the noise of the world or will we nurture it, knowing that the seed is really God in us, enabling us to live at the higher place we were created for? We all make the choice for ourselves, no matter what blame game we may try to play.

Who is God? A better way to ask that question might be: Who is God not? God is everything and everyone, the original source and stuff of everything and everyone we have known or will ever know. Another question we often ask is: Where is God? Maybe it would be better to ask “Where is God not?”, because the amazing reality is that God is everywhere and there is no where that God is not, because all that is – is God.

When we open ourselves up to God and all the potential that God is within us, we open ourselves up to unlimited miracles and unexplainable blessings. And the really beautiful truth to grab hold of is that this is reality for all of God’s creation. We are all made in His image and therefore have opportunity to live in the supernatural.

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. -Psalms 139:13-16

Open your heart mind and soul to God’s love, power, wisdom and spirit, so that you might experience and become all you were created for. Be the blessing by experiencing the blessing and sharing the blessing of the unlimited potential that lives inside of you. And never forget: The only real limit you will ever have on your life is the one you put on yourself…
