The Gift of Change
When it comes time for a change, how many of us are willing to receive it?
Can we grow and learn and become someone greater than we are without it?
Why then do we fear it?
The problem with being comfortable in our lives is just that. We’re comfortable. We tend to lose sight of why we’re here when we get set in life being a certain way.
So the Holy Spirit works its magic and helps create change so that we don’t become stagnant too long. How are we supposed to grow closer to God and becoming Love if there is nothing causing us to question, or no challenges directing us to explore different paths?
Change is not bad. Just different, until it also becomes integrated and commonplace. Then we settle into that for a while, a time of rest, to gear up for the next change.
Change is merely the experience where challenges are created for us to explore new opportunities. As it is, we tend to find change very difficult and so resist it to the point sometimes of being in denial or blind to what’s needed.
But what would it be like if we opened our hearts to change, instead of resisting it?
Can your heart ask that question and be open to the answer? If not, that’s ok. That’s simply where you’re at in your experience. But if you want things to be better than they are now, that requires change. So maybe it’s time to try and invite change into your life.
Either way, with every decision, we’re choosing either stagnation, or something new. And if God wants to present me with something new, even if the change is challenging, then I thank Him for the gift. And I will try to let my heart will be open and willing to receive it.
Beside the fact that it is our right to heal and expand ourselves, just remember that airline mask instruction to put yours on first before your child. We give the best care for others when we ourselves are at our best. Take care of yourselves in whatever way is best for you.
Merry Mom’s Day, all!
The Dance of Mom
She swings her hip on which baby sets,
She reads story to the rest.
Feet glide along floor
As she moves food and more.
Doesn’t matter if the grace is not perceived.
Reality is the love received,
From God to Mom and Mom to child.
He knows Mom’s heart, hearth, and hum.
Blessed is His creation called Mom.
Have a blessed Mother’s day!
“Children have more need of models than of critics.”
How many times have we heard words that tell us or imply that we are not worthy?
How many of those times did we accept them as being true?
Eleanore Roosevelt had it spot on when she said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” How true this is. But as children, it is our innate nature to trust those whose care we are in. So we tend not to question their criticism, only accept it as truth.
But how can that which brings us down be truth?
God’s love being The Infinite Truth means by Its nature that anything connected to it is of the highest nature. We are His creation of Love and from Love. There is nothing inferior in that. To allow ourselves to accept and believe that we are unworthy of love, abundance, and all that He has to offer us is an insult to our Creator. Jesus gave His life to show us what love is and how its power is truth. To deny God’s gifts is the same as turning our back on Him.
So why do so many think of themselves as unworthy, whether it be on a conscious or subconscious level? I understand the subconscious level, but I do not understand the need for self-deprecation on the conscious level.
If an artist’s paint a masterpiece, do we claim it to be worthless or unworthy. Do we claim the work of Michaelangelo to be unworthy?
Do we realize that we are claiming God’s work as unworthy when we degrade ourselves?
And how are we supposed to bring up the world and those around us by acting small? (Thank you Marianne Williamson and Nelson Mandela)
It is by realizing how empowered we are as children of God that we can be His expression manifest.
And guess what? YOU ARE WORTHY!
As God’s children, He created because He loves us and to manifest His love through our being and our actions. And as His children, we have all that He Is within us. For there is no life without His Spirit within us and of our own selves we do nothing. So how can we possibly be lacking the ability and awareness to love, create, fulfill our purpose, and be His finger manifest?
Maybe it’s what we want? Is it simply easier to say “I can’t” than to call on Him and go for it?
Beliefs are a powerful things.
What do you choose to believe?
The way of the downtrodden, or the way of the empowered?
It is our choice. And that’s another gift that He gave to us. Do we accept the gift of choice and make our own decisions? Or do we continue to blindly accept other people’s negativity and take that on as our own. We can choose to give away our power to other people’s perceptions. Or we can listen to the One True Love and accept our power as an infinite expression of God’s love and know that we are worthy simply because we are His children. If loving parents see their children as worthy, how much more than does the infinite love of our Perfect Parent see us?
Choices are powerful things too. It’s a good thing we have them. (Thank you, Lord.)
