Here Is Your Weekly Wisdom! From Where to Take Your Lessons In Life

WeeklyWisdomLogo

This is a very different weekly wisdom than my usual ones. It has some depth to it. I was tossed as to whether I wanted to make it a regular blog post or my weekly wisdom post. I think it brings wisdom so I am putting it here! I will write it out as I “heard” it inside me.

“Take your lessons in life from the place you began this life on earth; your mothers womb.
It is a place where you can hear the very heartbeat of someone who anticipates your arrival. This is where cells are actively dividing and transforming, where God’s universe automatically supports your existence, and where you are automatically fed, automatically nurtured, automatically kept warm, and comforted. This is a place where you are complete with God and God alone. There is nothing else you need to ask for because it has all been given to you already. You are protected and whole just as you are for each moment of development, regardless to where that is. Every phase is a perfect one, every change leads to the next. There is nothing more important then what is happening right at this moment and darkness is never a fearful issue but a place where the most amazing metamorphosis takes place; your development and growth.”

Just as your mother’s womb was a place for you to be surrounded by all that feeds and protects you, the same is true about your existence and life on earth. You are surrounded, protected, and fed by the God of the Universe. It’s all perfect in design and your life is never a mistake but a transformation always evolving and in process.

“Whatever you water will be what grows in your garden.”

Aren’t you glad that God created nature to be standard and something that can be depended upon?  I know I learned a lot from growing a garden at my home. Its so easy to neglect the plants if there is no routine to water them. They eventually die.

Its the same with us and in all things. What you water today is what will grow tomorrow and onward. If you water negative thoughts, continually think of problems, or focus on fear, then that is what will grow in your life. Or, you can choose to nurture and water faith, love, and the good things that are happening in life. Consider what is right in life instead of what is wrong with life, then the good things are what will grow larger.

Affirm: “Today I will water the things that are good, the things that are working, and all that is right in my life. I will think upon good things as God has instructed and good things will be what grow in my life’s garden.”

The place inside you that feels void is only a place of new creation 

The bible tells us just before God created things on the earth it was void, and darkness covered the face of the deep. Everything God does has order. When something is void it is a blank slate waiting to be written upon. We often feel a void inside of ourselves when seasons change, as life changes, or when things in life become reordered. It might seem very dark and difficult in deep places inside you but in reality it is a place waiting to be filled with new creation.

The answer to your void is not to the question, “how am I going to get through this darkness”, but “what new things am I going to create from this darkness?” If you keep looking into a dark space thinking about how dark it is, you will only keep seeing darkness. If you look and see all new and positive possibilities, you naturally will become inspired by God to create new things.

Today, what is possible in your life? What new things inspire you and where would you like to be? Place yourself there in your mind, heart, and spirit. Soon you will see how God works to create them to be so.

Your heart is never far away from others. 

It can be hard to be far away from our loved ones, either in miles or when they have passed on. Sometimes love almost feels bittersweet. When those moments come, and they will, when those you love are so very far away, just put your hand on your heart and remember they are right there with you. There is no distance or time that can break the bond of love. Your loved ones are always engraved on your heart the same way God is.

The moment you see yourself as separate grief or sadness will flood in. It’s the illusion of separateness that causes most of the pain. Sure, you miss the physical presence of those you love and adore, but the depth of a person and their love is their true existence.

Send love right now to those you miss and adore. Guaranteed they will feel or sense it as it comes their way. Heart to heart and soul to soul, we create a love bridge that Jesus calls…ONE.

“When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.” – John Ruskin 

God tells us that love covers a multitude of sins. God’s love is a covering love, not a judging love. His love is a power filled with grace, skill, and compassion. His creativity is so great that no one could ever master all that He has done and no one can completely explain the beauty of all He has done.

His love lives in you. This gracious and powerful covering love allows you to walk forgiven and covered from all sin forever. Coupled with skills and gifts He has given to you there is a power to create that only God could ever give. Your uniquely fashioned light is beyond explanation just like eternity and all that God has created. There are no words that can express your beauty in the light of a God so glorious that He spared nothing to let you know just how He feels about you!

YOU are love, you are skillful and you are His masterpiece! 

Walk in His creative and covering love today and everyday. Take His covering first for yourself and then cover all others with the greatest creative powerful love that exists.

Follow the river. The river knows where to go. 

Think about being in the flow of a river. Going along with the river downstream the ride has one direction. It points to the open space of a vast sea. Traveling upstream, the ride is a lot harder. Going against current all the way is certainly not the way to get somewhere easily or faster. It makes sense to go with the flow. This does not mean there won’t be rocks along the way and sure does not mean the waters will be easy to navigate. It just means the right direction is where you are led to a more vast expansion of life and living.

Rivers gather together and meet in one place. Here they become bigger and more powerful. Think of this as the moments in life you join with others and your power together amps up the current. Rivers also divide into streams. Think of this as being the same as the moments you move off into more quiet places, cutting through the desert, and leading the life of a calm and trickling stream.

When rivers dump into the vastness of the ocean it is the place where mighty waters join together and become more powerful and expansive. Consider life becoming more vast in your understanding and movement. Oceans have depth, swelling waters, and contain the greater things within the depths.

Your life is like navigating the river. You can choose the easier way to the expanse of the ocean or you can choose to go upstream, fighting and struggling. Each way might lead to a vast body of water but going with the better flow of life will be easier by far. You will still navigate rocks and sharp stones along the way but eventually you will meet and join with other rivers, move off as a stream, and ultimately join the vast ocean of all possibilities.

Does this sound confusing? It really isn’t. Just don’t buck the system when life becomes unbearable. Moving upstream is not the way to get through. Go with the flow, take God’s wisdom, join wisdom with others and become mighty in the ocean of all possibilities.

It’s never too late to be all the things you ever dreamed of. 

Time seems to go by so quickly and it can be very easy to think that too much time has passed to accomplish your very most precious dreams. Sometimes temporary setbacks seem to take forever to be overcome. Don’t get discouraged by them. They are there to teach you things you can use in your next journey onward.

Keep dreaming, and while you are waiting through the storms in life to pass, remember they always pass. You still have time to make each day the best day ever. You still have time to do all of those wonderful things you dreamed of. Until you leave this planet, consider your future to be vast and plentiful! You will see. There will come a day when you will look back briefly and say, “Yes, it passed, I learned, and I am better for it. Now on with my future dream!”

Here is Your Weekly Wisdom! (Stress)

WeeklyWisdomLogo

Today, remember who holds your heart in His hands. When stressful things arise, train your mind to go right to the source of your assurance and protection. Learning to focus on God first will eliminate the stress responses from your life. God instructs us to renew our minds daily. When turning to Him with our issues, meditating on His truths on a daily basis, you will program an automatic response to do so every time a stressful situation arises. Affirm to yourself daily that God is in control and allow that assurance to guide your life and responses to life.

Affirm: To God I give my life and all of its circumstances. I turn over stressful situations into His guiding hands and remind myself daily that He lives in me, knows me, and knows what is best for me. I will take the time to meditate on the truths that set me free. Gods truths will relax me as I allow Him to guide me and deal with the situations that present themselves. I’m taking a deep breath, knowing it is all covered by grace, love, and power.

Here is Your Weekly Wisdom! The Storm

WeeklyWisdomLogo

The storm always passes eventually and this one will too!

You have probably heard the expression, “this too shall pass”. If not, take it in now. Lately our country has faced a lot of natural storms. If you are alive you will always have storms in your life. There is no getting away from them. Seasons pass year to year and as humans we have them as well. Isn’t it like God to cycle everything created? I know you probably wish the storms would just go away but they are a fact of life. The bible says, “it rains on the just and unjust alike.” Remember this truth when you think you are the only one. You are not!

There are times when it is so tempting to give up in the midst of the storm. There might also be times when you will end up having to yield to the storm as it passes through. Within the experience there is a choice just like with natural storms. You can rebuild or walk away. The choice is yours to evaluate which one you desire.

Remember God is in you and outside of you as well. You are never ever alone in any storm. Jesus walked on water defying the laws of nature. I read once if you want to walk on water you have to get out of the boat.  There is actually a book about this written by John Ortberg if you want to check it out. This tells you that some storms require movement on your part.

Whatever your decision in the midst of a storm, remember the eye of the storm will give you a breather to strengthen for the next round. You will survive and when you look back it will only be a memory in your head that you can now learn from, forget, and move on. (Just don’t go back and follow the storm!) Once it passes it has passed. Leave it there.

You will never completely arrive. Life is a learning process. It’s a transformation that will continue through all of your life. Give yourself a break. 

This is a message to be easy on yourself. Sometimes we get so caught up on judging ourselves and every move we make.  If you make a mistake, acknowledge it, and then move forward and do it better next time. Give yourself grace. God does! Give to yourself everything God desires for you. Compassion, forgiveness, unconditional love, and empathy.

Today, and always, you are a warrior. You have been born into this world innocent and have taken on the mess this world has dealt you. As people, we tend to suck in everything thrown at us and then spend so much time working on healing it. Be brave enough to heal a little bit every day. Your life matters. You matter. There is no place you go where grace does not follow you. You can not release the tight hold God has on you and for you. There is no way to dump His image within you. You might as well accept that you are a miracle and worthy of healing, hope, and happiness!
