I SURRENDER

I surrender my will and my way to Holy Spirit, To God and to the Universe. I surrender to JOY!

I surrender to receive my abundance. I surrender so that I may release my limited prosperity that I would describe. I surrender to the All-Knowing Creative Intelligence that is Creator of all things.

In my surrendering I Am Thankful for my life. I Am filled with Love and Compassion; Wisdom and Understanding; Purpose and Power! I Am filled because I choose to be open and receptive. To whom much is given, much is required. I share from my storehouse of goodness and kindness. I bless others with my smile and openness.

I Am Thankful for my life! Thankful that I have willingly allowed God to express through me to touch others. I touch with Unconditional Love and Unlimited Acceptance, knowing that each person is doing the best they know how at that moment. I give what I would like to receive. I give because that is all I know to do, and it feels so good!

I Surrender totally and completely. I am not attached to the outcome. The outcome will Bless me and others. My Faith lifts me higher than my projections of possibilities.

I Surrender to God!

I Surrender to Holy Spirit!

I Surrender to JOY!

ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE

 

Enjoy the experience you are currently in, there is JOY within it and all around you.

Whatever the experience looks like resolve yourself to finding the beauty and joy in it. It may be hiding but it is there! You have the choice and care of creating your life. When JOY is what you desire then JOY will be manifested. It is always your very own choice.

Blessings sometimes come disguised as something else. Yet when you are always expecting JOY and a miracle, then that is what will be evidenced by you. Take for instance, no employment. This could be a time of great distress or you can make the most of it and discover a great gift that has been waiting for you to have some free time to show itself to you. Maybe you can learn to swim or learn to paint or construct another artistic object. This may be the golden time of your life. Remember it is your choice of how you will look at it, either a curse or a blessing.

Enjoying the experience may mean that you are currently living a single life. Well how about truly developing your relationships with the friends in your life. You now have the time to do things that you did not have time for before. Go out and meet new people. Get involved in an activity that you have put off until the right time. Enjoy your life and the experience you are currently in.

Age has absolutely nothing to do with it. Age is a matter of consciousness. I know an elder who says she is 16, however the way we calculate age she is actually 88 years young. But for her, she is 16 and loving life!!

Add flavor to your life by daring yourself to learn a new language or go to a new place just for the fun of it. Another friend of mine has recently relocated to the Southeast and he takes full advantage of his new environment by going out and learning about this new uncharted area of the United States he has never lived in before. He is having the time of his life.

THE SMALL STUFF

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!

LEARNING FROM A TREE

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!

I ACCEPT NEW BEGINNINGS

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.

THOUGHTS AND HABITS

May 17th

 

Do you have any habits or thoughts you do not know their origin? For instance, Friday the 13th. Many people have come to associate Friday the 13th as being an unlucky day and dread moving about their business because they feel they will be cursed that day. I was once told that the number 13 is actually a lucky number because it represents Jesus and His Twelve Disciples. I thought that was a great way to look at something that I had believed to have some mysterious power in it. As I shared this with a friend, another person felt obliged to share the truth of why we celebrate Friday the 13th as an unlucky day. I got so tickled because at that very moment I thought how many other things we accept without knowing the origin.

 

Does your family celebrate the New Year by eating certain foods because it is meant to bring you luck all year long?  Are there ailments suffered by your family that you think are hereditary and you are likely to get it because so many others have had it? Could it be the same eating habits are passed down generation to generation and the correlation between the unhealthy eating habits and the disease are never discussed. Do you know you can change the history of your family problems simply by eating more nutritious foods?

 

Do you dress a certain way because ‘the Designers’ have said this is the current look, even if it does not flatter your shape? Do you listen to music just because everyone else is listening or do you truly like it? What habits and thoughts have been inbred in you and you know not from whence it came? I just think it is rather funny, like this story I heard from someone.

 

A friend visited for dinner and observed the host cutting the end off the meat. When asked why she did that she said it was a family recipe from her Grandmother. The inquisitive guest wondered if they could talk with Grandma about this recipe. When Grandma was asked what secret was in the cutting of the end of meat; more flavor, more tender, juicier, she was bewildered. She replied “The only reason I cut the ends off the meat was because my pan was too small to hold it!” And this had become a family tradition! Just food for thought.

A MONTH OF MIRACLES

May 1st

 

May is a month to accept miracles as a part of our expectations. That which we expect will manifest for us. I accept an abundance of miracles to be manifest in my life!

 

Miracle is defined as an event or action that apparently contradicts known scientific laws; a remarkable thing.

 

The Universal Omnipotent Creative Source is ready to bless you with Miracles! The size of the Miracle depends largely upon you. What you think about and concentrate on is what will be produced in your life. You are already blessed with the Miracle of Life. For Life itself is beyond scientific explanation. For how do you explain this wonderfully crafted vessel we call a human body. Scientists are continually finding out new things about the human body. And probably until the end of times will these highly intelligent individuals be searching for all the answers as to what truly makes us operate the way we do.

 

I am expecting Miracles to be manifested in my life! I give Thanks every single day for this gift of Life. My first response to waking is Thankfulness that I was granted yet another day to live and breath; to live a brand new experience; to fully love all that is within me and around me. I give Thanks that I remain aware that all of everything is a Miracle that The Most High has created to bless me with. I give Thanks for I know, trust and believe that I do not do it alone! God is always with me, guiding and protecting me, that is Miracle enough to sustain me.

 

My Miraculous Provider is Awesome! I give Thanks for the Remarkable Presence and Power that gives me LIFE! I Am a Miracle! I Am a living Miracle! I Am a Loving Miracle!!! Thanks God!

FOLLOW UP

April 25th

 

This month is dedicated to abundance.

 

Are you doing and giving your best to following up? Has an opportunity been given to you and all you need to do is follow up? Do not allow procrastination to rob you of achieving your goals. The situation or person is waiting on you to show up so that you can be blessed. Receive your blessing today, take action and be rewarded.

 

You took the first step and more is required of you. Remember to follow through until you reap the benefits of your goal manifested into reality. You are almost there so please do not stop now. Just one more step, one more action on your part. It is right in front of you aching to be summoned.

 

I choose this day to always follow up in a timely manner. I am grateful for the many blessings coming my way. I show my appreciation by acknowledging the gift. I remain conscious of my choices and stay on the course that leads me to the place I desire to be. I can. I will. My attitude is of success and achievement.

 

I have prepared myself for a time such as this. I have completed the basics and ready to move forward in my progression. I give thanks daily during my still time, alone with God. As I meditate on the wonders of life I know and accept my dreams are part of the overall picture of existence. It is my work to do and no one can do it but me.

 

I create abundance in my life by consistently following up and following through. I trust the process of life and creation and know everything unfolds in its divine time and order. I do my part the best I know how by allowing integrity to be my constant guide.

 

I follow up and follow through because this is the natural way of my being. I receive Abundant Blessings Overflowing in and through my life.

PEACE AND LOVE

April 20th

 

I choose to express Love at all times. I choose to shower Love on all situations and conditions that do not appear as loving. I can and do make a positive difference by insisting all my actions are predicated in Love.

 

The Peace I have is non-negotiable. Peace is a gift from The Creator, it resides in your inner most being, your inner sanctuary. Peace is a permanent state of mind. I do not voluntarily give away my Peace. My Peace is a prized possession and I truly treasure it. Oh Sweet Peace. Peace Be Still is the name of a gospel song that lets you know that when you have Peace, it stills all the turbulent conditions in life.

 

When we choose and allow Peace and Love to guide us through this journey of life, our life becomes filled with serenity and security. We realize that nothing can disturb us as we remain vigilant on establishing our life in complete Peace and Love. There is an air that enfolds us in assurance and confidence. It is the gift of The Most High God blessing us.

 

As we stay centered in this attitude nothing can harm us. We have a protective shield all around us that can not be penetrated by any negative gestures of another or ourselves. If we have an inclination to slip from this chosen path, we will be swooped up in a magical movement to remind us that we can no longer go backwards.

 

I Am anchored in Peace and Love. I Am Peace and Love. I radiate Peace and Love. I attract Peace and Love. I accept Peace and Love. All that I Am is Peace and Love.

 

Sweet Peace, Radiant Love flows from and through me at all times. I give thanks to The Source for my indwelling Peace and Love.

WISDOM AND STRENGTH

April 26th

 

Applying knowledge is wisdom. Learning the Truth of life is Wisdom. Trusting The Creator is Wisdom. Knowing we are each created from the same Source is Wisdom.

 

Strength is a Spiritual gift. Spiritual strength lifts you up and over seeming obstacles and challenges in life. You can call upon the All Knowing Power at any given time and will be blessed with whatever you stand in need of. This is the lasting kind of strength that aides you in each task you decide to undertake.

 

I welcome the awesome power of The Most High in my life. This is my wisdom displayed and my strength increased. I know that it is God’s pleasure to bless and shower me with all that is good. I Am a child of The Infinite One. I Am an heir to all that is good and very good.

 

By virtue of my birthright I exercise Wisdom and Strength in each of my endeavors. I can demonstrate this power of Wisdom by knowing, by going to the secret chambers of my soul, the pure Will of God in my life. God’s Will is made plain to me. God has blessed me with this gift and I am grateful. I use this gift wisely, trusting I have received it by Mercy and Grace.

 

I utilize my Spiritual Strength to overcome and be a victor over all challenges. I do not allow myself to be cast aside in fear or uncertainty. I stand firm in Spiritual Strength girded with the unconditional Love of The Creator in all that I do. Physical capability is weak; Spiritual Strength is all I need to live a great life of Peace and Joy.

 

I give thanks for my understanding of the gifts of Wisdom and Strength.
