”Divine Guidance”

Standard

“Divine Guidance is yours for the asking. It is not enough merely to know that Divine Guidance exists – you must use it.” – Ernest Holmes

“This Thing Called You” pg 63.

Sometimes using Divine Guidance means we have to get out of our own way long enough to ask for it. We find ourselves in situations we have no control over or have a sense that everything we’re doing is going against the grain of who we really are. While we’re busy trying to do what we think is best we can lose sight of the actual direction we should go. The beauty of God and his Divine Guidence is that it’s always there waiting for us to turn to it and…simple ask.

It’s amazing how clarity comes once we do and nothing seems as bad as we thought it was. It’s that Divine Guidance that brings me into the now and reminds me that all that matter is where I find myself in each moment and it’s a funny thing…because those moments feel like a lifetime when I’m in them.

“Anchored in Hope”

Standard

Sometimes I come across the things I’ve written in the past and say to myself, “did I write that?” It is truly what I believe in my heart, but even when we know this truth sometimes a good reminder is all we need to bring that light of faith, hope and love back into our heart where it can shine once again through the soul that we are.
Have a blessed day!

Connie's Wisdom

anchor of the soul

Keep your hope anchored in God so you don’t drift into doubt. -Joel Osteen

It’s hard to keep hoping when things keep going wrong, but when we drift into doubt we tend to get our anchor stuck in its mud. There is nothing productive that comes from doubt. It robs us of our faith, and the life we have to live. If we believe that anything is possible through God. Then we must see in our minds what we want, think it, and realize it, and keep it at the forefront of our thoughts so that nothing gets in the way of that hope. If we look at our hope through God’s eyes, we are better able to see His plan for us. As we trust in that knowledge there is a wonderful sense of comfort that comes over us. He will never leave us. He is always with us…

“The Freedom to Be Me”

Standard

“The Freedom to Be Me”

America, the land of the free. Who wouldn’t want to live in a country where they could say, “I’m free to be me?” Is that not why our own ancestors came to this country in the first place? To live their lives in a way that would fulfill their potential and personal calling from God? But freedom is not merely entitled to those who come to America. The source of freedom was given to us by God from the very beginning when he created us in likeness. He taught and continues to guide us through his example. That through our thoughts, words, and actions we create the world we live in, the country, the family all the way down to ourselves. Freedom is not just a word. It is nothing without choice. That choice is like the stone you toss into the still waters, it creates a ripple effect and touches everything around you. So, while the freedom to be me is a beautiful God-given gift. It also comes with a great responsibility not just to the people around me but to this great big wonderful world I live in. The real power of freedom begins with you and me right where we find ourselves…now. So, on this special day of freedom and independence maybe we could all take a moment to pause and ask ourselves, am I adding to the better-good of all through my thoughts words and actions? Or could I make a new commitment on this 4th of July to do the best I can to forgive and love one another as God first loved us? I’m in! How about you?
