Be Thankful

The last few weeks have been amazing. As I look around today, I am so GRATEFUL  for what God has blessed me to do and to have. I know that God has a plan for me and it is clearer than ever. I have become very peaceful within, even though, things in my life right now are very challenging. I’m not a bit worried because I TRUST and BELIEVE that when I DO what I can, GOD WILL DO what I cannot.

I found this poem this morning that talks to what I am feeling in my heart. 

“Be Thankful”
By Unknown
“Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach
you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.
It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.”
Many Blessings as you go through your life today.

Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson

Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson

it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson

Lets Pray Quickly

I received this prayer from a co-worker today and I am sharing it with you

Lets Pray Quickly

Father in the name of Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God, I pray you open doors for the person who sent me this as well as those I am sending it to. Only you can open doors no man can close and for that we honor you today. Thank you for the open doors of life, health, strength, prosperity, wealth, and love. Also, thank you for closing the doors of death, sickness, weakness, despair, poverty, and bitterness. We love you today Lord and give you all the glory and all the praise. I seal this prayer in Jesus name, Amen!!!

If you need God to open a door, pray this prayer. Believe in your heart and you shall receive what God has for you.

Another Fabulous Weekend

Another one of my home girls, friends for over 20 years,  visited on Saturday and we had a blast. We didn’t drink a whole bottle of Chardonnay, but we laughed and had fun updating her website. I prepared a vegetarian meal, which she enjoyed. What a wonderful afternoon.

Church was very inspiring as always. For the last month or so, the topic has been about The Peace Church. Today’s service was so on time with my last coaching Reacting vs Responding and a training class with Lynn Richardson called the “Divine Collaboration..”. Ephesian 4. What I took away today “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling…” (Ephesian 4:4) As I move through my life, I will NOT give the Devil a place. I WILL edify the body of Christ because there is only One LORD, one faith, and one baptism. I WILL allow the LORD to work on me and through me. I WILL let GOD’s Light shine through me to inspire and empower the people who I come in contact with because we are all CONNECTED.
