On this day of my life I see clearly that we must explore and develop those ways to engender the passion for the possible in our human development while discovering what that “possible” is. In so doing we will discover ways of transcending and transforming the local self so that extraordinary life can arise. There is no question but that a larger life is latent in the human species and that we live only a small part of the life that is given. Thus it will require from those of you who are really serious about making a difference something… Read more.
Transformation arises not through ambition or self-will, but amidst our surrender to the One Who holds all things together through His Word. Generally, we don’t take steps toward growth until the pain of staying the same exceeds the pain of change. Only in that place does true surrender begin. Transformation begins with a decision to forgive and to extend unconditional grace, acceptance, and love to the one who did us harm. Transformation grows with our decision to believe the best about another, remembering their best qualities, and overlooking their offenses. Transformation flourishes when we acknowledge we live in the midst… Read more.
With God, anything is possible. Breathe.
When my mother died, I was filled with such pain that I yelled at God and said I wasn’t going on until I understood what was happening. I could not see the sense of loving a mother and then losing her. What a painful joke. That night God’s messenger came to me and explained everything about life. As the years unfolded, I have been gently led to more and more understanding. As I sit here today, I believe there are 3 things that are helping me to live a happier, healthier, prosperous, and meaningful life. I have been learning that… Read more.
Your relationship with God is the most important relationship you will ever have.
Trust God in everything, knowing you couldn’t be in safer hands.
God has a plan for all of our lives. We have to stop trying to fight it. You are a unique piece to the puzzle on the earth. Don’t apologize for it, but be proud in what He is through you. Embrace it. Wrestling with the Almighty just takes too long and is too frustrating. When you choose to blaze a trail, others will see you sparkle and they will be inspired to raise their own banners and walk forward in their own lights. We have to stop trying to compare our treks to those we may see around us…. Read more.
You don’t have to do it alone. All your worries, all your stress, all your secret agonizing over what will be, and ‘How can this huge problem ever get resolved?’ and ‘How can I help my child / spouse / sibling / friend to get out of the huge hole they’ve fallen into?’ – you don’t have to carry all that stuff by yourself. If you’re really honest, what can you actually do about it all anyway? Can you pull a million dollars out of thin air and solve your financial problems? Can you cure cancer, clean up the environment,… Read more.
Searching for God can be very time-consuming and expensive. The irony, of course, is that actually being with God is timeless and free of charge.
You are not alone: just when you think you are, God will send an angel your way to remind you.
You cannot fail in God’s eyes. You can ‘fail’ in the eyes of a spouse, parent, or maybe even in the eyes of the world. Maybe it’s time to stop making other people your ‘God’.
Open your heart to possibilities, allowing the light of God to give you what you need. You can have plans; however, you must allow space for surprises, delights, connections, and the time it takes for things to unfold. Hope comes from the head and heart, through the soul and the spirit. Don’t get stuck in a ‘little idea’ of you, but find freedom in knowing that beyond you, there is a force working to pick up the pieces in the darkest hours, the brightest days and even through confusion and healing! The four-letter word “Life” has allowed us to be… Read more.
Comfort is what you have when God gives you the victory.
To love and accept life is to love and accept God.
Today is a brand new day. A day full of opportunity. Regardless of your current situation you hold within you the ability to achieve amazing strides. We are all given opportunities to choose our paths in life. Often that task seems daunting but if we can keep the faith and just hold on, victory is on the way. Today you were given a gift that many were not given – the gift of life. Every moment that we are allowed to stay on this earth is a gift which should not be taken for granted. I have learned the hard… Read more.
Success is first understanding, then fulfilling the Lord’s purpose for your life.
Always be self-full in making life decisions in divine order, placing GOD first: all else follows.
If God does not ask of me to do more than of what I am capable, then why do I expect that of myself?
