“It only takes one person to change your life—YOU”
– – Ruth Casey
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?
Storms in Recovery
Everyday is A MIRACLE
“Miracles are instantaneous, they cannot be summoned, but come of themselves, usually at unlikely moments and to those who least expect them.” –Katherine Anne Porter
LOVE & ACCEPTANCE PROMISED
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.
Every Talent Counts
The Lord has given them special skills as engravers, embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet thread on fine linen cloth, and weavers. They excel as craftsmen and as designers (Exodus 35:35).
Comfy in Our Skin
“The battle to keep up appearances unnecessarily, the mask–whatever name you give creeping perfectionism–robs us of our energies.”–Robin Worthington
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.
Success is taking positive action, nothing more. My attitude can help someone else succeed too.
“One must be leery of words because they turn into cages. – Viola Spolin
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.
Progress not Perfection
“In the face of an obstacle which is impossible to overcome, stubbornness is stupid.” — Simone de Beauvoir
