Sometimes there are storms, and sometimes there is sunshine.

 

But through all of the seasons of life, God is with you. Whether you are rejoicing or fighting back tears, God wants to share the moment with you. Allow that to happen, give thanks in the good times, ask for help in the difficult times. Take a minute right now and tell God what's on your mind.


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

Your soul wants the freedom to sing, dance, love.

 

As your body needs nourishment - food, drink, sleep, so does your soul need nourishment - sing, dance, love. Life is not all work, work is not all hard toil. Nourish your soul with the food that is right for it, for it is the altar of your own inner temple.

You can conquer your fears.

 

 

When fear is holding you back, don't give up. Even the bravest people feel afraid. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the will to go on in spite of it.

The woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang the best.

 

Do not wait, the time will never be just right. Start where you are, work with whatever is at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.

Worshipping God is good for you.

 

In a world where there are many things competing for your devotion and worship, God is the only one that delivers and doesn't disappoint. Putting anything above God will ultimately let you down and leave you feeling empty. So sing praises, lift your hands in the air and give glory to God. It's good for you!

When you come to a wall, you can either climb it, or you can simply walk around until you find a door.

 

Don't make life so hard, look for the doors!

The world is warmer with your inner light shining.

 

When you shine your light, you encourage others to do the same and your life becomes surrounded by the warmth and love of those you share a path with.

If you're feeling stressed, take care of your body.

 

 

Breathe, stretch, move, get a massage. Your body will thank you and your spirit will feel renewed. God wants us to take care of body, mind, and spirit.

If you would rather live than die, all is in your hands.

 

Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.

You can stay strong through misfortune.

 

 

When times are rough, don’t fight it. Have patience. Storms wreak havoc in every life. But if you bend with the storm like a blade of grass and allow it to pass, soon you will stand upright again.

Everything is holy.

 

 

For God everything is holy, and that is a good example for you to follow.

The world never delivers on its promises.

 

 

Make more money and you'll be happier, get a bigger house and you'll feel satisfied, buy fancier clothes and people will admire you - the materialist's mantra. But there is always a bigger house, someone making more money and a new style that makes your expensive wardrobe obsolete. Pursue things that deliver: take care of each other, love one another and believe in God. These are things that deliver, and that's a promise.

You are commanded to love everyone, not condemn those who don't agree with you.

 

Your opinions are just that ... opinions, regardless of where you got them from. They are tiny, a speck compared to the immensity of God. You cannot possibly have even the faintest idea of what God commands to other people, to other lifeforms. Your only possible intelligent choice is to continuously open in love and acceptance. Today more than yesterday.

Big decisions need time and space.

 

 

To make a big decision, give yourself time and space away from the mundane so that the sacred can emerge.

No matter what happens to you, you always have freedom of mind.

 

 

That means you always have freedom to choose the path of virtue over the path of suffering, to choose being one with God over being alone.

Peace will come when you let the presence of God settle into your heart.

 

If there is to be peace in the world, there must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, there must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, there must be peace between neighbors. If there is to be peace between neighbors, there must be peace in the home. If there is to be peace in the home, there must be peace in the heart.

When an impossible must happen, put it on God's to-do list.

 

Well, if you can't make it happen, and no one else can, there is only thing left to do - finally look up and trust in God to make it right.

You can't hide your shortcomings from God.

 

Failures, weaknesses, and fears; God knows them all. Many people attempt to hide issues from God, but it is futile.

You belong.

 

 

You are part of a community: people of faith. Worship with others, share with others, experience God with others. You are not in this alone; you have an entire family of believers out there. Today is a good day to seek some of them out.
