ask for help

Well it’s been another good day of learning and expanding my mind.  I hope you have had a great day as well.  I’m so excited to be in this particular stage of my life right now.  There are so many things I’m thinking about on a daily basis that it’s hard to pick one to write about when I finally get to writing my daily post.

Today, I would like to encourage you to ask God for help whenever you are feeling like things are just too much.  Lawd knows, I’ve had my share of situations like that. 😉  But I will  tell you this – God will help, even if he takes a little longer than we’d like.

I hate to wax all “God” on ya, but the reality is that I would absolutely NOT be in the good place I am in today if it were not for him and that is why I share this with you.  I don’t care about converting you to some religion or creed.  God is bigger than me, religion and all the complications that people like to put on him.  So I hope you can hear what I’m saying and I hope you’ll get what you need out of this.

Remember your mind is a battlefield and if you can fill it with enough positive thoughts and faith things will start to turn around. And having God (or Universe if that makes you feel more comfortable) help you makes all the difference.

Over the past few years or so I’ve had to come to terms with things that I could only come to terms with through hardship and pain – sad but true.  At the time I didn’t understand why, but I’m starting to see the immense depth and benefit of that crazy time.  You may have had or are going through some hard times, maybe hard times that have lasted years (mine sure did), but keep seeking out strength and understanding from a higher power.  Tell God you’re sick of learning the hard way and then leave the pain in his hands.  I promise there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but you might need to put different glasses on to see it – God’s got those glasses for ya!

If you want REAL change in your life I encourage you to be open to the idea of God imbuing you with his divine power to change and grow.

Marianne Williamson (a fave) wrote this in A Return to Love.  I found it particularly affirming the other day as I struggled with “where I want to be” vs. where I am now.:

“Now see Jesus, as the embodiment of Christ, come up behind you and put His arms around you.  He has been given by God the power to make you whole.  Allow him to permeate your being and to heal every broken part of you.  Allow Him to stand in the breach for you, between the you now manifest and your divine potential.  He is that potential, and He has been given by God the power to help anyone who asks for His help to actualize it within themselves.

He is as clear in the Holy Instant as we allow him to be.  Either He’s metaphorically there, or He’s literally there.  Which it will be in your experience is completely up to you.”
