The Courage of a Lion!

The things that hold us back from living the life we so want to live…..or the life God wants for us.  The list……..

1) Fear

Huh….that is all I got!

Fear is the one thing that holds us back…even if that fear is wrapped up in apathy or ambiguity…I believe it all boils down to fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of rejection, fear of others, fear of change, fear of happiness…because we feel unworthy.  Yup…I believe it all comes down to fear in one form or another.

So let us ask for courage!  Affirmations & prayers! All need to ask for courage!

“I AM courageous! I AM fearless! I AM worthy!”

Dear God, Give me the courage to live my life in the way YOU would want me to! Let me face this life with a fearless nature; one that will stop at nothing to help others and create change!  Thank you for the courage of a lion!  Thank you for a life of fearlessness!  Thank you for the courage to know it is better to live a life of passion, to help others and create change, than to succumb to the “what ifs” of this world and the unknown! ~ Amen!

So let’s all go out and be a LION!

Some days……. it doesn’t feel like enough!

notenoughEvery morning when I wake up, one of the first things I do is to say “thank you!”  I know the power a grateful heart has. I know how gratitude, forgiveness, and love can transform a life. I understand the power of love, of God.

It’s an easy task for me to ask each day ” what can I be grateful for today?” To ask “where will you use me today?” These questions are easy for me to ask, but it is not that way for a lot of people. And so I write, talk, and share, I am on a continuous journey to get the word out.

But some days, I feel like it’s not enough. I feel like I am just spinning my wheels…going nowhere!  So what can I do to reach more people? To actually get others to incorporate what I know into their lives? I know I am not the only one speaking out on this subject, we all have our own little part of the world to change! How do I make sure I change my part while I am still here on earth?

Knowing how to be grateful, forgiving, and loving, knowing the power these things have to transform a life, knowing it isn’t enough!  Knowledge -(minus) action = knowledge, plain and simple. You have knowledge. But if you want to change the world, you need to add action!  Knowledge+action=change !

I think….I am being impatient. All things happen in Gods time, not mine.  I know I’m headed in the right direction. I also talk about  faith, seems I need a dose of that right about now!

Dear Father,

Forgive me for my lack of faith! Help me to stay the course, to know that all will happen in  your time. That all is as it should be. To know that waking up each morning, saying “thank you” and asking ” how may I serve you?” is enough! And to know that you will lead me to the next step on my journey!  Thank you!! For another day to get it right!  ~Amen

I pray you know the power you have! The power to change your part of the world! Be grateful for another day to get it right!
