Like What You See?

Do you like what you see? Take a good, honest look at your life and the answer might surprise you, because it may be that you do like what you see and you didn’t think you were going to, or it may be that you do not like what you see and you thought you were going to love it. Most likely you will find yourself some where in between, with some things you love, some things you hate and some things some where in between.

I have found that the great majority of us, just sorta tend to tolerate life. We have moments we love and moments we hate, but most of us end up living the majority of our lives in the “blahs”, stuck somewhere in between love and hate. On some level, we know we were created for more, but we are just too tired to even try to think our way through it.

Every now and then though, something comes along and moves us out of our comfort zone to the place that we can’t help but take a moment or two to imagine what our life might look life if we were really living it the way we sometimes catch ourselves dreaming. We think about the person we could be, should be and would be, if???

Have you ever caught a glimpse of yourself, when you had it all together? Have you ever seen the “put together” you, full of energy, great ideas and experiencing the miraculous in all directions? When we see it, we believe it and for just a moment want it, but then life wakes us up and we go right back to thinking about what might have been?

Could I suggest a different way to look at life? Could I maybe point out another possibility of how we can possibly see things? Rather than thinking about would’ve, could’ve and should’ve – how about we see ourselves as God our Creator sees us?

In Ephesians 1:3-4 it says: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.”

God sees us from beginning to end and from end to beginning! God sees the total picture of all that we’ve been through, survived and grown from. If you are still living, then you are still a work in progress, so don’t you dare give up and don’t for one moment entertain the thought of giving in, because God has great big amazing plans for you! See it, believe it, live it – you’ll be glad you did!

Do You Know Your Purpose?

One of the biggest and most challenging questions we will ever deal with is the question of purpose. ”What is my purpose?” People ask this question everyday and we spend vast amounts of money trying to figure out the answer to this question. It’s not an impossible question to answer, but the answer is probably not going to come in the shape and structure we are looking for.

The fact you are here now in this moment of time means you have purpose. You are a divine creation, created in the image of your maker. You are not an accident and you are not your mistakes. Don’t allow the limits of your flesh to cloud the clarity of your purpose.

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails” -Proverbs 19:21

One of my favorite teachers, Dr. Wayne Dyer says we spend our entire lives as human beings looking to have a spiritual experience, when in reality we are spiritual beings getting to have a human experience. Get this and you will get your purpose. Our purpose is to live the human experience as spiritual beings, learning as we live and growing as we give.

The key to fulfilling your created purpose is discovered as you give yourself away. Commit yourself to seeing the good, developing the good and growing the good. Dedicate yourself to the higher purpose of lifting everything in and around you higher and to a better place of alignment with our Creator. Make sure that the work of your hands and the activity of your mind is serving to bring about healing and wholeness in our world. Be who you were created to be. Do what you were gifted to do. And while you are at it, give it all you’ve got and then some, because believe it or not, you do make this world a much better place, just because you are in it.

And at the end of the day, when you lay your head down on your pillow to go to sleep at night, isn’t it a wonderful and amazing thought to think that my life today was used for something much greater than myself. My life was used to bring glory to God and blessings to others.

The Power Of Allowing!

Do you ever find yourself trying to make things happen? I have lived my human experience long enough to to realize that this is a great recipe for disaster and frustration. So often, I have tried to organize my life and get it on the track as I think it should be, only to get smacked up side the head with something out of left field that I could have never expected or anticipated.

The universe is an amazing creation and it did not happen by accident. It was created by the Master with a plan, purpose and design to help and facilitate our growth and connection. The universe does not need our help, it just needs us to get out of it’s way and let it do it’s thing. I don’t need to see the big picture or have all the answers. I just need to learn to live moment by moment for the moment that it is.

I am a creator, but I don’t have to create the moments, they have already been created for me. The purpose of the moment is not for me to create the moment, but to create the blessings to be enjoyed in the moment. My task is to live the moment, enjoy the moment, grow and become in the moment. I do not have to create the path, just enjoy traveling upon it.

I was created by love and for love. Moments offer me the opportunity to allow love to flow. It comes to me and if I am doing it right, then I allow it to flow through me to others. There is no struggle of push or pull, just a simple enjoyment of all that is. All things that matter grow from love and love causes all the things that I need to find me and become a part of my life.

Love is the magnetic force that pulls me to my purpose and it is love that brings into my life everything I need to become all I was created to be. Love enables me to repel the negative and attract the positive, so that I expereince the fulfillment I was created for.

Stop trying to make something happen and simply allow what is happening to do whatever it is that it is supposed to be doing. This is how we stay out of the way and how the Spirit guides and grows us into the love, joy and peace, we were created for.
