11/30/13 Everyone needs encouragement. We need to comfort, build up, and strengthen each other. When we help or support others in any way, we serve God. Leading others to a full and purposeful life, by giving them the best wisdom we have to offer, will give our life more meaning and joy. A simple smile is a gesture that may brighten another’s day.
11/29/13 Trust God. Every hill you climb or storm you face, remember God meant it for good. You only have one life to live. It is your choice to become the best person God created you to be or waste the process by ignoring God’s path. Don’t force the flow. When you delight in God, you receive the desires of your heart. Be joyful and wise!
11/28/13 Living your life with gratitude is the only way to have the right attitude for happiness and contentment. Thank God for the mountains in your path, allowing you to exercise faith and change for the better. Lift the shades of your mind and let the sun shine in. Be warmed by God’s presence, grace, and faith. Gratitude dissolves boundaries!
11/26/13 Each day is a new opportunity to make a different choice than we made yesterday. It is filled with choices many often refuse to see. This life we were so graciously given should never be taken for granted. By nature, we all have a desire for knowledge so learn something new. God wants to give us the desires of our hearts.
11/25/13 Advice is what we adk for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t. The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on unless it is coming from an unreliable or unauthentic source. When we listen to advice, we benefit by humbly accepting it. A foolish person is right in his own eyes, but the wise person listens.
11/24/13 The presence of deep, profound pain can be the catalyst for uncovering the peace we desire from within. Embracing difficulties and obstacles allow us to emerge beyond it to the other side. Unless we move through the pain, we will not find that connection we crave. Do not resist what cannot be changed. Pain is the guiding force to peace!
11/23/13 In the deepest recesses of ourselves there is a familiar tranquility and quietude. It has always been there guiding us through our life experiences. It is the point of peace or silent witnessing that is undisturbed no matter what happens. When we seek this awareness, ease of flow is the result. We feel alive in God’s presence right here, right now!
11/22/13 God has planted seeds of greatness in all of us. Everyone has dreams and desires. We all have something to change. We need to affirm all positive attitudes towards our future by living in the present mindfully. Press on and water the seeds of abundance for life; the abundance of peace and harmony to find bliss.
11/21/13 While it is wise to learn from experience, it is brilliant to learn from the experience of others. There is not enough time to learn everything ourselves through trial and error. We must learn from the life lessons of one another. A warning from a wise person to someone willing to listen is more valuable than a chest of gold or diamonds.
11/20/13 When we are true to ourselves, we live in peace. It is a state of grace not dependent on our circumstance. There is nothing more precious than peace of mind, yet we deceive, cheat, or lie to fill some void inside our souls. These vain attempts can never replace the truth of what was compromised~true peace of mind and integrity!
