Thank you for always being close to me♥️

Dear Lord, you are always ready to forgive. You embrace the opportunity! You are my God and king.👑 I mess up daily, and you continuously forgive me. I am imperfect. You are perfect. I am unwell. You are “holy” (excellent), indeed! Your knowledge is beyond what I can fathom. Your ways are higher than my ways. Your love is sacrificial and unending. You are more than a best friend. You know my heart in ways I could never understand. God, thank you for your loving kindness and for always being there for me.♥️✨🌠

Trust doesn’t mean do nothing

People tend to think that trust means inaction. Like, oh, if I trust in God, he will do everything. This frustrates me when people believe the Lord has to act on their behalf. Trust does not mean do nothing. Often we don’t know how to hear from God or care to, for that matter. Our egos may tell us that we have enough. That we are doing enough. We don’t have ‘time’ for God. You mean, the huge white-bearded man in the sky? Why cater to him or ask for his input, one may think. But we need God. He is more than an outside force who created everything. His voice comes from within. When we listen to God, we accomplish a lot more for ourselves, for our family–for humankind. One may wonder how to hear from God? It starts with a conversation. It begins with studying scripture. I didn’t mean that you should wholly depend on scripture. Many people do this. They have the Bible trump, Jesus. God is not only in the Bible text written 2,000 plus years ago. God is not only sitting up in the sky holding all the universe(s) together either. God is as breathing and alive as you are and wants to be an active force in your life. The more you focus on him, the easier it will get. Go into a quiet place. Get away from the noise. Meditate on his word. Ask. And then wait to hear back. The answer often comes from your intuition and can even come from others. But please be careful with the ‘hearing from others.’ They can steer you their way, and when their voices outweigh your own and God’s than you are in the danger zone. Listen: anything pure, anything whole, anything that is beautiful and good comes from God. Trust is faith in action.💕🙏⚛️🎑🌟🌏

Heal from the inside

We picture healing to be external. Something that is ‘seen’ or evident to be made whole. What we don’t realize is that healing has to be internal also. When you are healed on the inside, you can handle defeat of all kinds. When you are healed, or, to be made ‘whole.’ It doesn’t matter what your external situation looks like; you can be a janitor or taxi driver, you can be next to homeless or all alone. When you are healed on the inside, it will reflect on the outside. All things will start to fall into place. Be healed. Be great.💙🙏🤍
