Wow . . I started this blog in August 2013. Now it’s November 2014. It’s been quite a journey. I’ve taken a break but now I’m back. Pretty sure I’m suppose to be posting on a regular basis. So here it is again.
Over the year I’ve learned something HUGE! My largest revelation is The Father’s Love. My Father, Your Father- I’m talking about our Spiritual Father. I’ve known he was hearing and answering my prayers. I’ve known that he is so amazing and wonderful and anything is possible when you lean on him. What took me awhile to get . . I mean REALLY get . . is how much he loves me. He really LOVES ME! I’ve been a spiritual freelancer (yes- I just made that title up) all of my life until this past year. When I began to focus in on the word of God and soak up all the information I could get my hands on God’s Love- I started receiving the idea that maybe HE Really DOES Love ME. The depth of our Father’s Love is so very deep. When I stop and think about how he has never given up on us, I am amazed. Certainly only our creator can have the patience and compassion to continually give us another chance after we mess up over and over and over again. Understanding what Jesus did for us really brought everything home for me. The fact that Jesus- a man without sin – walked this earth for the sole purpose of sacrificing his life for our sins – is just incredible. I studied this concept- this notion- why did he have to do this? I realize it was all in the covenant of God who never breaks his word. Well, as a lawyer, I understand contracts. To my amazement God takes them pretty seriously especially when it comes to the ones he makes with us. I’ll get more into this whole notion later- but what I really want to share is the fact that at first I just couldn’t get my head around why do I DESERVE unconditional Love from our Father. I mean who am I to have my prayers answered- who am I to deserve the attention of the creator of heaven and earth. Then I realized or maybe God just whispered to me in my thoughts- it’s not because of what I did but it’s because of WHO HE IS. He is the King of Kings- the MOST HIGH GOD! Well the King of Kings have children- one of those children is ME. Just like a daughter of a King- she is born and by virtue of her birth she IS ROYALTY. Well as a daughter of the King of Kings- that makes ME ROYALTY. WOW. What an absolute honor. So something so simple took so long for me to actually Get- to actually Receive. I’m Royalty! I’m My Father’s Daughter. Just as most parents can testify to- there’s nothing your child can do to really make you stop loving them. You may get mad – but STOP LOVING? Well, we are just humans- we are not the CREATOR- He Loves us Just as We Are- Right Now! Unconditionally. If a human parent can’t stop loving his/her child- why would we ever think our Heavenly Father would stop loving us? I am so delighted- excited-honored- grateful of My Father’s Love!! It’s the only thing that really matters. Praise God!
I want to be like a tree . . planted by the streams of living water. My roots will be deep and long and strong. I thrive from the living water of life . . . joy . . . love . . . happiness . . . . compassion . . . and patience. We ARE like trees if we stand and rely on God as our foundation, letting his word feed us like streams of living water. This world is not heaven. Because of this we must stay strong and continuously receive our Father’s living water of his word. Giving God continuous praise and in all our ways acknowledging him – he will direct our path. Our souls are hungry for his love. Our God is always more than enough.
Abundance to me is absolute happiness, financial wealth, a sense of completeness that fills my soul. Abundance is everlasting and is offered to us without limits or conditions. Asking for abundance fulfills our primary purpose on earth. All we need to have it is faith, belief and love. Love for God, love for others and most definitely love for ourselves.
How to Pray? Good question – easy answer. There is no wrong way to pray. You pray from your heart. You can pray in silence. You can pray out loud. You can knell on your knees. You can cross your legs while sitting on the floor. You can just sit in a chair. You can bow your head and clasp your hands. You can look above and clasp your hands. You can close your eyes or leave your eyes open. A prayer is a message from your true self, your soul, your spirit, to the higher power that is above all of us. You know you are deep within a prayer when you can feel it deep within yourself. Maybe you cry . . . maybe you just feel peace . . maybe you just keep talking until there is nothing more to say. A prayer is something that is ALWAYS good. You are submitting yourself to something so powerful . . something so wonderful that loves you for YOU . . that is with you no matter who you are, what you’ve done or what you have. Allow yourself to listen to the answers to your prayers. Through prayer I have found peace. I have found happiness. I have found answers. I have found LOVE. I KNOW prayers are heard . . .they are powerful, magical, wonderful and they are most definitely Answered.
I think we all need help each day. The real question is have you asked for help? All too often we feel we must do it ALL ourselves and we TRY and we TRY so very hard to do what we think is right only to work ourselves to exhaustion and disappointment. Each day I ask for help and I get it. I bow my head and ask my prayer to be heard. I ask to be graced with compassion, love and focus. I ask to be relieved of the burden of fear. Sometimes I feel anxiety usually due to a negative thought that is running through my mind. At that very moment, I take a deep breath and ask for help. I KNOW my request is granted because I feel better- maybe just a little bit at first. You know you have been answered when hours pass and when the fear returns and you see it for what it is “fear” it’s not real . . it’s just a thought . . so this time (with the help that you asked for) that “fear” then just vanishes through your awareness that “it’s not real.” Then more hours pass and within those hours you begin to see the wondrous universe before you, the blue skies, the breeze, a bird, a kind person (all blessings before us). You have now forgotten what you asked for. . . . . This is how i KNOW my prayers have been answered. I can’t begin to list all the answered prayers that happen to me daily- but as they do I hope to continue to share . . . those amazing gifts that one receives just by asking . . . .
Has anyone ever said “I’m worried about you” or “Can I have your phone number?” or “What are you doing?” or “How are You?” or even “Hi” ? Did you know . . these are ALL signs of love?
Love– that we all have for each other . . . we just have to be open to receive it. Some where, some how, some times, we just aren’t open to receive it- but if we just keep our eyes open, keep our hearts open and be ego free. . there’s love all around. Love for us to give, love for us to receive.
Have you ever looked up and noticed the life in a Tree? It’s so wonderful to see the sun shining down upon the green leaves. It never fails to happen . . . when I look up into those leaves . . . really look. . . and breath . . . and become present in the moment as I look . . . a gentle breeze comes forth and THOSE leaves begin to move. It’s like the leaves are waving to me . . maybe even applauding. At that VERY moment, I know that I am NOT alone. My heart fills with love and peace. I thank the Lord for being by my side and loving me . . . even with all of my faults.
Why Life is Constant? Because it is. I decided to start this blog to offer guidance and support to others showing and demonstrating why life IS constant and how beautiful this reality truly is. Life is never ending. Life is Beautiful and LOVE is life. There are soooo many examples of this reality that is shown to each and everyone of us if only we keep our eyes open to see these wonderful messages. Maybe no one will read this. Maybe many will. Either way– this is the beginning of something wonderful. . . .
