You are Blessed

Okay, you have heard this before. Please hear with a spiritual ear. Do you know how blessed you are? Oh do you really?  You didn't get that job, that promotion; your health is not as great - still do you know how blessed you are? Don't compare to what if, but get on the high side of God's love an provision.  You are blessed.  In spite of whatever.  You are blessed.  Allow that to sink in.  enough for now.

Be Free

One of the issues that can cause great pain is being subjected to choices others make.  Oh yes it can, but it should not be so.  Families suffer many times because of this. You know, someone is on drugs and everyone close suffers.  Or someone makes unwise decisions and others suffer. It is indeed a hard thing to separate, yet it is possible.  Love is most important, yet love may cause us to take on what does not belong to us.  We are responsible for self, we are accountable to others. Hold on to that.  allow yourself release from the chokehold you have had on yourself. enough for now.

Just Go

Thomas Merton set you up. I asked, "what do you hope to discover?"  Have you thought about it?  Let me rephrase it. You really do not need to decide what you want to discover.  All you need to do is pray.  Let that communion with God be the discovery. It is the entrance to discovery.  For too long you have been the "one to make it happen." Not this time. The excitement in prayer is that you cannot control the discovery.  You can release distractions. They mean you no good.  They keep you in a fog of confusion, despair, doubt. Let them go. Tell them to "shhh." 

I'm excited for you.  Enter in. Just go. As you go, hold on to what you discover. enough for now.

Prayer Discovery

This is from Thomas Merton near the end of his life:
"In prayer we discover what we already have. You start from where you are and you deepen what your already have, and you realize you are already there. We already have everything but we don't know it and don't experience it. Everything has been given to us in Christ. All we need is to experience what we already possess."

What will you discover? enough for now.

Thanksgiving

Blessings of love, family, and peace in spite of the foolishness around you, placed on you, or dumped on you.  You are stronger than that, you are better than that. Embrace your community- family, extended family, friends - and hold on to the joy that only God gives. In spite of stupidity- whether yours or another's, God still is, and God still is able, oh yes. Blessings of giving thanks, now and going forward. Shalom! enough for now.

Giving Thanks

Yes, we are in the season for giving thanks.  What are you thankful for?  Look at it.  There should be so many things. You are loved. You  have the ability to change.  You can walk in your healing. You can walk in your healing.  Let others love you.  Allow yourself to love God and to loved by God.  Experience God's delight in you.  Walk out of the silly real stuff that holds you back. Step into the very real life that has been prepared for you.  Get on your journey, and explore all that God has for you. That is reason to give thanks.  Blessings. enough for now.
