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!

Love…what is it good for?

Love begets love which in turn begets love and so on!

Love…what is it good for? More love!

Smile and I smile with you.  Give and I give! I learn by example. I feel by experience. My emotions are created on a moment by moment basis, which means, YOU have the POWER to create love, anger, fear, shame,guilt,joy,happiness, within my day, my life.

We all know ultimately I have the power to create my own reactions, my own thoughts, it is my choice how I will feel today! But we also know not everyone understands or accepts this idea! Not everyone is tapped into this amazing ability that we all have inside us; the ability to OWN our reactions and thoughts. So if we know not everyone has it, then are we not called on to be ever so careful and considerate when dealing with everyone around us. And that is another good point; we need to be considerate of everyone, not some people, but everyone because we never know who may be hurting or weak at the moment, even those who otherwise are living an enlightened life can have a bad day.

Lead by example. Be careful of others who may be fragile at the moment, we know not what they are feeling and going through at the moment!

Ah…so it always comes back to “words” are powerful tools, as are smiles, hugs, love!  Use your tools “your powers” for good!

Go forth and procreate LOVE!   🙂   Christine
