Choosing Compassion

The Lord is compassionate and gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness (Psalm 103:8)

God loves his children regardless of their sin, their past, and their failings. We aren’t dealt with as we deserve; rather, according to his great love for us. Can we say the same about how we treat those around us? Are we compassionate, slow to anger, and fill off love? Or are we offended, impatient, and aggravated?

LOVE & ACCEPTANCE PROMISED

We are full of mistakes, poor choices, our sins are plenty. With God however our acceptance has been promised. There is no credit check, no failing grade, no past default that his death on the cross doesn’t redeem completely. We are covered with his loving jhgforgiveness. We are accepted by God as part of his family and redeemed by his GRACE for his eternal kingdom.

True Happiness

We think we know what will make us happy. It is seldom that we know because we look for happiness out there and expect it to be”gift-wrapped”. We can find happiness in moments when we can get outside ourselves to be fully attentive to the people God puts in OUR LIVES. HAPPINESS FLOWS between us when we open our hearts to give and receive compassion. Let someone in today and give them ur full attention and feel the rush of true happiness.

Pushed by OUR PAIN

I long for contentment and serenity in my life and I deserve those times. I earned them, but without life’s pain I would fail to recognize its value.

We tend to think of the rational as a higher order, but it is the emotional that marks our lives. One often learns more from ten days of agony than from ten years of contentment.” – Merle Shain

What we forget is that we don’t ever need to experience our painful times alone. The agony of a painful experience dissipates as quickly and as silently as the entrance of OUR HIGHER POWER when called upon.

Allow YOUR Blessings In

If I am faced with a change of any kind today, I will know I am not alone. Whatever I am facing is right for Me and necessary to my well-being. Life is growth and the next stage awaits…. so if the door closes, don’t keep pulling on it and allow the window to open!

Windows and Doors

Barriers, distractions, and obstacles appear to stand in OUR way and frustrate and depress US. The knowledge that we seldom know (You don’t know until you know) and understand what is best for US. We may wonder why a door suddenly closes. Our paths are questioned only when our steps have started off OUR path. Doors do not close unless a new direction is needed, we must trust no OBSTACLE is without purpose, however baffling at the present time. Acceptance of what is will open OUR minds and hearts to the better path in OUR JOURNEY.
