THE SMALL STUFF

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

May 27th

The small stuff is the situations that appear in your life as opportunities for you to grow and expand. Small stuff can be challenges often seen as difficulties. Small stuff is everything that cannot and will not add value to your life. The small stuff is anything that you cannot control. The small stuff is just that, small stuff. The small stuff can be irritating and bothersome. The small stuff is annoying and unimportant.

I choose to use my energy and time wisely by focusing on the things that really matter to me. My life is important to me. What I do with my life is important to me. How I can serve others is important. What I say and do is important. How I treat others is important. I choose to invest my time and energy in those things I have decided are important to me.

The BIG stuff is Life! The BIG stuff is family and friends. The BIG stuff is Joy and Peace. The BIG stuff is serving others. The BIG stuff is Absolute, Unconditional Love, pure and simple.

I live my life understanding that my actions may affect others. My actions can help or hinder, assist or detract, add or subtract. I choose for my actions to reflect the BIG stuff of life and not the small. I choose to add to all situations with positive words and deeds.

God is my BIG stuff! BIG enough to handle all situations in any kind of condition. Huge, Humongous that’s my GOD. With God there is no need to concern myself with the small stuff. What relief to know I can and do call on The Most High to handle my small stuff. I concentrate on the BIG stuff!

FEEDING EMOTIONS

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

May 26th

What do you feed your emotions? What emotions are you experiencing?

When we have good vibrational emotions we feel good and exuberant. We can laugh and truly enjoy life. We can choose to remain in this state or we can give that power away to another force.

Negative emotions have a tendency to rob us of happiness. Sometimes we feed them with food or other drugs. I use the term drugs to include all unhealthy activities. So regardless to what that something is that you feed off in times when you cannot give yourself positive words, it is a drug. A drug is an artificial stimulant and can be just about anything in the world.

Today I choose my emotions carefully. I consciously go and stay at a higher state of awareness. My emotions today are positive. I only allow positive emotions to exist for me this day. I meditate on positive thoughts.

I pray for Peace and Harmony. I am Joy and Love today. I surround myself with Light and Truth as I move through this day. It is my choice. My experiences are a reflection of the emotions I am carrying and expecting.

Today I feed upon the rich promises of God. I know that I can choose my experiences, therefore I choose wisely. I feed upon the Goodness and Grace of God. I feast from the Storehouse of Plenty. I am abundantly supplied.

Thanks God for allowing me choice and free will. I know I have complete control of my life. I choose for it to be good and very good. I expect and experience good all the time.

I constantly feed my emotions Truth, Love, Joy and Happiness. I know that which I give out returns to me pressed down, shaken together and multiplied. That is the principle of reap and sow.

I feed my emotions Love and more Love!!!

LEARNING FROM A TREE

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

May 25th

I have begun to truly look at trees. There appears to be a very magical essence about them. They are protection and resident for certain animals. They provide shade and coolness for people on a hot day. Trees are strong and most are tall. Some have huge trunks while others do not.

So what can we learn from a tree? We can learn to be strong yet bend with situations. The high winds come and we sway, we do not break. We gently acknowledge the harshness of the outer conditions while not allowing them to destroy us. We accept we cannot control all influences. Yet we know our strength is not in changing them but how we hold ourselves up during the process. Trees do not change during a storm or high winds, a tree is always a tree.

At certain times of the year a tree knows it is time to shed old leaves to make room for new ones to appear. Trees do not fight against the natural rhythm of life. They graciously allow the old leaves to fall away. Happily they anticipate the arrival of new leaves that come with the changing of the season. Trees know they must die to some things in order to give and have new life in others.

Trees have strong roots that go deep within the earth. Trees know who they are. Each tree I see in a unique expression of itself. They are individual with the same qualities.

I learn from trees. I learn the essence of living from trees. I do not deviate from who I am, a rich and highly blessed child of The One Source. I can and do bend with situations while remaining exactly who I am. I do not break from extreme or severe situations. I stand my ground because my roots are firmly planted in fertile soil. My roots are deep, I pay honor to my Ancestors for beginning the root that I am now a part of. I provide safety and refuge for those who are less fortunate.

I appreciate and welcome the newness in the change of seasons which are displayed by the new leaves on my branches. Thanks God for giving me so many examples that I can learn from, especially the trees!

FOUNDATION

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries
May 24th

My stepfather, Odis Brown taught me and my siblings the importance of building a strong foundation. He founded Brown and Brown Construction in Los Angeles many years ago. In his construction work he demonstrated the absolute necessity of a solid foundation. A building cannot stand for long without first having a secure and strong foundation. You cannot build anything on a weak foundation, for it will surely collapse over time. This same illustration can be used for all areas of life and living.

Is your life built on a strong foundation? What materials make up your foundation? Did you hire an engineer to help? Have your blueprints passed IN-spection?

My life is built on the Love and Promises of God. I believe my life is a gift. I believe I am here for a reason. I trust this is my time to flourish. I know I am to multiply and to be of good cheer. In multiplying, I add to the goodness of the Universe. I add peace and harmony. I add justice and service. In all my activities, I multiply.

My foundation is strong, sturdy and solid. My foundation is constructed on Truth principles. The truth is each person is made in the image and after the likeness of The Creator. Each has an equal right to be here at this time. I know that all is deserving of honor and respect. I give my best at all times starting with myself.

My foundation consists of unconditional love. I have no expectations of others loving me in return. If they so choose I am a grateful recipient. Otherwise I remain obedient to that which I am to do, love without expectations. Included in my foundation are the materials of Joy, Hope, Faith, Wisdom, Strength, Harmony and Acceptance.

My life is built upon a solid foundation. Therefore I stand erect, knowing that I can accomplish all that I am to do. I am governed by Grace and Mercy. I Am Thankful.

THE HEART

©Sandy Rodgers Ministries

May 23rd

By definition, the heart is the central, vital or main part; core; the center.
Consider this definition: at heart – in one’s innermost nature, or heartfelt – sincere, genuine.

What are you allowing to reside in your core? What emotions are controlling your vital part? What state is your innermost nature in?

Today I consciously choose to flex the muscles of my Heart with acceptance and unconditional love. I exercise with God and follow the routine of displaying harmony and justice to all. I know that the more I use and exercise this heart muscle the greater and stronger it becomes. I am building this muscle into the awesome power it is. As I loosen the tightness of negative emotions and unforgiveness my heart is freed and feels joyous. The muscle relaxes and operates in sheer bliss, knowing it has absolutely nothing to fear. Love conquers all and fills every space of my heart.

I offer heartfelt appreciation for all that has been given to me through God. I sing praises to The Most High. The Creator is my Source. My heart sings songs of gratitude and thanksgiving.

God is my center, thus is and in my heart at all times. I choose to demonstrate love in all interactions. Love is my only choice when I consider God is IN my heart expressing through me at all times.

My heart is filled to overflowing with God’s Grace and Mercy. I satisfy myself first. Then, I pour from my overflowing cup to others. I provide a wonderful beverage in their time of thirst. I offer a drink from my cup because I know that my cup is continuously being refilled by The Master. My cup is always overflowing.

Thanks God for filling me up! Thanks God for my wonderful Heart. I keep it in excellent condition by daily exercising it with complete love for myself and others. Thanks God. Thanks God. Thanks God.

I ACCEPT NEW BEGINNINGS

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

May 22nd

I give thanks today for new beginnings. There is a miracle inside of each beginning. There is also a gift in newness.

In my expectation of a new beginning, I acknowledge I am required to accept endings. I must make room for the newness to enter my reality. I cannot hold two thoughts for the same thing. When my true desire is for newness to be manifested, there will be something that I am required to release. I do so graciously with love.

Are my thoughts in total alignment with my expectations? Perhaps it is time for me to release some old worn out beliefs about what I am entitled to receive in this life. Do I have a habit that prevents me from living the life I desire? I know I am to release it to allow the new beginning to take form and manifest. I gladly release without any attachments. There are no thoughts of lack and scarcity in my newness. I am fully open to receiving all that my heart desires.

I allow goodness to flow into my life and affairs. I remove all blockages in my thoughts and words. I push towards the prize. I accept the gift of newness. A fresh beginning is mine.

I may mourn the leaving of something yet I trust I can and will survive. I choose to live totally in faith and trust the process of renewal. I willingly make room for new beginnings.

I accept new beginnings and I know that all things change. I can choose to accept that new beginnings are a natural occurrence. That each moment represents a new beginning and the moment that has just ended is gone forever. I can never again relive that same moment in time. I am grateful for my wisdom of discernment.

I am excited to accept New Beginnings.

THE ART OF BEING STILL

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

May 21st

As I sat and listened intently to Sri Charles of Shanti Villa Holistic Healing Institute, I clearly heard his message of being still. As questions were being posed to him by the participants, his response to solving their seeming challenge was, Just Sit! What a powerful lesson he was giving to all of us.

Our answers are each imbedded in the core of who we are. We need not look to anyone else for the answer. This was coming from an esteemed Spiritual leader. Sri Charles did not desire people to look to him for their answers. He knows the authenticity of God-Power working in each person’s life. And so he kept directing the person back to their own Spirit for their answers.

He said “Be Still and know”. How often do we ask others for the answers to our questions? When we still ourselves, our answers will come to us. Just become quiet, still yourself. Ask your question and wait for the answer. Knock on the door of opportunity and behold it is opened for you. Seek and you will definitely discover that which you are looking for.

There is an art in being still, to just sit! Like any other form of course material, you are required to study it. It may come very quickly for you; with little to no effort on your part. Or it may take lots of practice before you can fully appreciate the benefits of it. When you have truly mastered this art form, you will treasure the rewards it will bring you.

This connection to your inner self is Spirit! Glorious Holy Spirit! Inside your inner sanctuary dwells a wellspring of knowledge and knowing. You are only required to connect to and with it. Each person is gifted with this. Each person has their own answers.

Today I practice The Art of Being Still. I connect with The One Source and receive my answers!

WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

May 18th

At your inception God breathed the gift of life into you. You were immediately filled with all the knowledge you needed to live a productive and joyous life. God poured All Wisdom, Love, Compassion and Joy into the very fiber of your being. At your birth you were pure.

As we grow our teachers become many. Many are there to teach us how to behave in this society. Sometimes the fears of others are passed on to us, usually out of love for us. We are told what is and is not acceptable behavior. We are constantly fed thoughts that tell us we are wrong and must act a certain way to be okay. Then we go to school and we receive additional messages regarding our self worth. The whole process is neither good nor bad, it just is or has been. Along the way, we lose our sense of self and begin looking for outside influences to tell us we are okay. We attend colleges and universities. We search out all the self empowerment and self improvement programs that are available. We have accepted this false notion that something in us needs to be corrected and someone else is authorized and better equipped to tell us how to do it.

When God speaks to us, it is our own voice that we hear. God lives in our heart and so no doubt when God speaks it is through our very soul that the communication occurs. We hear our own voice, but it sounds so rational and wise. The voice is clear and audible. But then again we have been told that if we talk to ourselves we are crazy. Yet who knows YOUR story better than you? Who can feel exactly what you feel about any given situation?

All of your answers are already given to you. You DO know the right thing to do for yourself. You are in direct communication with God at all times. It is your responsibility to connect and get your answers, to ask and receive from the storehouse of the Almighty! God wants to talk directly with you. There is never a need for an interpreter or a go between. You got the direct link! God speaks to us when we are ready to listen. Thanks God. So Be It!
