Today, this moment is what I have and what I do with it determines what’s next. Most all of us want out lives to count for something. We don’t want to get to the end of our huan experience and it all have been for nothing. It would be an amazing gift if our life could positively influence the lives of others.
To live a life of influence, we must deal with our thoughts before they deal with us. Thoughts are powerful and they have the ability to build up or tear down. Our thoughts inspire our words, and our words develop our actions, and our actions affect the universe which influences and impacts our life and living.
“Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather determine this—not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother’s way.” -Romans 14:13
This is why surrender is so important. We must choose who or what we are going to surrender to, because we all surrender to someone or something. Our surrender to our Creator is actually a very high form of taking responsibility, because we are not giving into powers outside of us, but instead yielding the to power within us, which allows the miraculous power of God and His love to do a work in and through us and this is the greatest influence that could ever take place on any level.
This love serves as a light to illuminate the darkness and guide us in the way eternal to the blessings we were created for. It allows God to use us physically, mentally and spiritually. We use our hands and feet to touch and serve others. We use our mind and thoughts to life others up. And we use our spirit and love to manifest joy, peace and blessings.
God knows you because He created you. He knows what’s going on in your life and has a better grasp of your thoughts than you do. God knows what you have messed up, that needs to be straightened. God knows what you have broken that needs to be put back together. God knows what you think is impossible and He has declared that nothing shall be impossible and that with Him. all things are possible.
God knows what you worry about in the late dark hours of the night, the things that keep you from getting the sound sleep you are so desperate for. God knows the reoccurring pain which flows from a broken heart that never seems to heal. God knows that you think your life is a total loss and He also knows better than you, that it is not.
God, who created you is the master healer, the divine author and the chief instructor to help you heal your heart hurts, discover the miracles that put the broken pieces back together and teaches you about the power inside you that will help you to overcome anything outside you that might try to take you down.
The secret to unlocking the miraculous healing that puts it all back together is SURRENDER. The first step of surrender is admitting and accepting that we are messed up. We tend to get distracted by how we got messed up, but it really does not matter how it happened, because once it has happened, the mess has to be dealt with. Once it happens to you, it belongs to you so the question is: What are you going to do with it?
God cannot do and will not do what we can do for ourselves. We can talk to others about our problems. We can blame whoever we want to for the bad stuff that has happened to us, but until we name it and claim it, then we cannot surrender and let it go. And if we want or expect God to do something about it, then we must do our part. Transformation takes place when we do our part, so God’s part can be unleashed and set free to do the miraculous in our lives and living.
