Learning In The Dark!

In a lot of different ways, we are living in very dark times. People are scared, worried and frustrated. And the big temptation is to curse the darkness, but what good will that do? Cursing the darkness only breeds more negativity. Instead of cursing the darkness, maybe we should go running right into the middle of it? Why??? Because in the middle of the darkness, it is much easier to see the light and this is the very place that our tansformation begins to take place.

Think about the dark times of your life: You thought they were going to kill you, that you were not going to make it through, but you are still here, fighting the good fight. The reason why you are still here is because what you thought might be the end, was really the beginning of your transformation and growth into something more and better.

When we find ourselves in that deep, dark hole that we think there is no way out of, when the blows of life have knocked us flat on our backs and when it seems that all hope is lost, it is then that the miracle takes place. In the very midst of the darkness, which we hate so much, we begin to see a glimmer of light, we feel the encouragement of hope, which promises that this thing called life is not over just yet.

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” -John 1:5

When we come face to face with the limits of what we can’t do, it is at this place that we begin to discover what God can do, will do and has done. The darkness is necessary to help us really appreciate and be grateful for the light. As we move from darkness to light, we make the amazing discovery that we are more than just flesh, we are SPIRIT, which makes us so much more than anything we will ever face.

When you find yourself in the dark, do not focus on the darkness, instead, begin to look for the light and in the process discover the amazing gift of transformation, growth, life in the Spirit and all that comes with it…

Wake Up!

Look around you! There is so much to see in this great big human experience. Look around with your physical eyes and you will be amazed at all you can see, just by looking. Learn to look around with your spiritual eyes and you will be empowered to live life on a totally different level.

It is very true that there is more to this ole world than meets the eye. And we can see this, participate in it and grow in amazing ways through it, if we will allow ourselves the opportunity to see through and beyond the veil of flesh.

For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. -Galatians 6:8

To move from physical vision to spiritual vision is to be AWAKENED. To be awakened is to enable ordinary you and me to be and do the extraordinary. Once we make the decision to move beyond the delusions of the physical world, we tap into the spiritual and begin to live the real life we were created for.

Wake up to the reality that you were created for so much more than what you have been settling for. Wake up to the fact that you are a spiritual being getting to have a huan experience, not a human being looking for a spiritual experience. Wake up to the power in you, around you and through you. And start using this power of love for blessing. You will be amazed and amazing at the same time and that my friends is definitely something worth waking up for…

Peace Of Mind!

The mind is a very powerful thing. With our mind, we can make or break life. We can give into the limits of the flesh or tap into the unlimited power of our Creator. This is very often a battle we find ourself engaged in and rather than fight our way through it, any times we just give up with the attitude that “this is just life!”

But, it’s not just life, unless we choose for it to be. We have the power, if we are willing to utilize it. We will either control our mind or our mind will control us. When our mind connects with it’s Creator, we have the potential to be positive, creative and intuitive, which leads to our growing and being a blessing.

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. -Colossians 3:2

By allowing our mind to connect with Spirit, we are making a choice to not give up control, but to take control back with God’s help to make our mind and His mind one. To set our mind is to make a choice in the direction that we are going to allow it to be empowered.

God is love and when m mind becomes love, I am invited to be a co-creator with the great “I AM” and I am destined for breakthroughs, miracles and blessings as I learn to walk with confidence through God’s mercy, grace and love. This is a beautiful thing!

When we allow our ind to connect and yield to God’s Spirit, we are able to take on and take out the wrong, self defeating and limiting thoughts of this world we live in. Our mind can be a worst enemy or a best friend. When we train our I’d to see, understand and act as our Creator, the dimension of the miraculous opens up and the unexplainable begins to manifest in incredible and breath taking ways.

Set your mind on things above, you will be glad you did!
