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!

Do YOU know the POWER?



Do you know the Power of Forgiveness? Allowing yourself to even entertain the idea of forgiveness does an amazing thing! It opens a window, even if only a little crack of an opening, to allow God the opportunity to start healing your heart. Start praying today for the desire to forgive. That is a start. Let God do the rest!

Today I am Grateful For……….

Rhonda Byrne

Yes, that’s right! Rhonda Byrne! Why?  I will tell you why!  3 weeks ago I had an issue with my tooth, I  had to start on antibiotics and pain killers for a few days, then went to the dentist to find out that I need a root canal. Not 2 weeks later the tooth on the other side started acting up! Well you can imagine my surprise at this, especially considering I almost never have issues with my teeth!  So I start back on antibiotics and pain killers, today is day #4 of round the clock pain killers and antibiotics ( yes I wake up twice every night to take pain killers and antibiotics). **And I do not like to take any drugs! So am not used to what it does to my body at all !

Anyway, when I awoke this morning,after 4 days of this, I was feeling pretty crappy. And to top it off even though I can’t eat anything other than soup and crackers I have gained 4 pounds, probably due to all the sodium and white flour from a diet of soup and crackers!  I feel nauseous and just all around YUK.

So I push myself to get up and go to my computer to get some school work done. I see Rhonda Byrne’s  book “The Power” sitting on the table. I pick it up and start reading it. I randomly flipped through the pages reading this and that….reading quotes like:

“Whenever your feeling is in conflict with your wish, feeling will be the victor.” ~Neville Goddard

“This world is but a canvas to our imaginations.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

“Love is the greatest power on earth. It conquers all things.” ~ Peace Pilgrim

But especially quotes like these….

” Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.” ~ Hippocrates

“Keep your mind as much as you can from dwelling on your ailment. Think of strength and power and you will draw it to you. Think of health and you get it.” ~ Prentice Mulford

By the time I finish reading these quotes and few well written passages from Rhonda herself, I am feeling so much better! This is just what I needed! A kick in my positive rear end to get back in the right frame of mind! I will feel better after I feel better!

And it is working!

So, today I am grateful for Rhonda Byrne and her book The Power for reminding me what it is that I need to do to help me feel better now!

Peace and Love~ Christine
