You only need to ask.

 

        

God is waiting for your asking, waiting to reach out to you.


~ I can't take credit for writing these, but I think they are nice and peaceful to reflect upon. I hope you enjoy them.

You are strongest when you are humble.

 

        

Only the weak act with arrogance. They put their pride on display so that others may think they are powerful. But those with great strength are humble because they have no need to prove it.

If you cannot accept failing, you cannot succeed.

 

        

Nothing truly meaningful is achieved on the first attempt, and if that's where you stop, then failure is all you will have.

You deserve happiness just because.

 

        

There is nothing you need to do to deserve happiness. There are no 'minimal requirements' for you to fulfill before you can claim happiness. You deserve happiness simply by virtue of having been born. That's it. Nothing more is required. Be happy.

A new beginning is always possible.

 

        

Let the greening of the Earth in springtime be a sign for you that a new beginning is always possible, even after the longest, coldest, darkest winter.

Although forgiveness is very hard, it is necessary.

 

 

Holding onto anger and old hurts hardens your heart and hurts only you. Ask for help in letting go of the anger. Ask to see the situation through the eyes of compassion. Allow yourself to feel the lightness of forgiveness.

If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.

 

        

And a time always comes when you discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

Everything has seasons.

 

        

What you are struggling with the most right now is in its winter season. Spring will come soon enough. What brings you most happiness is in its summer season. Fall will come soon enough. Live wise in this understanding.

You haven’t opened all your gifts yet.

 

        

Your life can be deeper than the ocean, larger than the sky and richer than all the minerals in the earth. You have so much potential. Do everything you dream of. Keep discovering yourself.

Life is not a distraction from, life is an occasion for prayer.

 

        

You don't need a special place or special time to pray. You don't need to be in a special mood to pray. Praying is like breathing - continuous, essential, life-giving - praying is the conversation with God you start with at birth and continue into old age. Praying is your celebration of God - everything you do, everything you think, everything you say is another word, another sentence of your prayer.

As you surrender to divine providence in your life, you will feel lifted and carried and held.

 

        

All is well, all is well, all is well.

There are appropriate times to stand in your power.

 

        

Power isn't always evil. If you stand tall in the power of goodness, you can have a powerful impact on a situation.

You were created to be alive.

 

        

You weren't made to simply survive until you die. Live it up, embrace life. This entire planet exists for all God's creatures, - and that includes you. Don't wait to start living, begin right now, with your very next breath. There are many wonderful experiences waiting for you, so get going.

Everything will be alright.

 

        

It may seem dark at the moment, but don't lose hope. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, keep moving and you'll get there. God won't abandon you; let God be your light. It may take some time, but in the end, everything will be alright.

Circumstances don't make you, they reveal you.

 

        

How you respond to the life God offers you is what makes you.

You can't rid the world of sorrow, but you can choose to live in joy.

 

        

Sorrow is with us not because we are bad at stopping it, but simply because it's part of being human. What matters is not whether good or bad things happen - both will, but your relationship to them. Just think back over the last 24 hours - what had you taken hard that you could have taken lightly?

The great advantage of having nothing is that everything becomes a gain.

 

 

Losing everything is at the same time the scariest, as well as the most liberating experience you can have. When you have something,  anything, you've got to protect it from disappearing. And so worry becomes a resident in your heart. When you've got nothing, your heart overflows with gratitude for every offering you receive.

You are wonderfully made.

 

Look at the world around you, the infinite detail and creativity. Unimaginable beauty surrounds us every day. You are part of that creation, materializing from the same artist that created sunsets and rainbows. Don't ever allow yourself to think you are anything less than wonderful.

There are times we are called to be a light in the darkness.

 

Now is that time. Be a calm presence of love. Let your heart shine like a beacon in dark times. It is surprising what a difference one light can make.

Divine messages come to you all the time.

 

They come through dreams, through snatches of songs, through things that you read which resonate with you, through synchronistic conversations, and most of all, in the quiet recesses of your heart. You may not have encounters with burning bushes, but that doesn’t mean God isn’t talking to you!
