JUST KEEP GOING

 

December 28th

When we are in the midst of a challenge, it can be difficult to maintain a positive attitude about the outcome. However each of us knows without doubt that we will look back on this seeming situation and laugh knowing that it too has passed!

I know I have been asked by several people if I truly believed in the message I have on my voicemail, “Its All Good, All The Time”. I usually laugh because I can tell the person is in the middle of something and they are looking for confirmation that it is going to turn out okay. My response is that while we are ‘in it’ it looks very dark and dismal, but if we just keep going we will eventually reach the other side of it, whatever ‘it is’. On that other side we can once again declare, “It is all good all the time.”

As for myself, ‘in the storm’ I may get confused and want to stop or at least pull over. But instead I turn everything else off  (doubt, worry, fear) and I pray asking for wisdom, courage and strength to get through to the other side. I learned this lesson while driving the highways in Alabama. To me Alabama rains are the worst I have experienced anywhere in the U.S. On several trips through the state I have encountered severe down pours of blinding rain. I wanted to pull over and wait it out. But I had no idea if someone else was there that I could not see. The fact I may cause or create an accident was not an option I wanted to risk. As I slowed down and kept going, confidence and calm always took charge. Slowly the rains would lighten and I could begin to see again. So I have used this same analogy with real life situations. If you but keep going you will reach the end of the storm regardless to how awful the down pour is currently.

My advice is JUST KEEP GOING. The sun will be shining and waiting on your arrival, after the storm is over.  God will Bless you through the storm!!

WHAT DIRECTION ARE YOU GOING?

The other day I attempted to get to my destination by looking in the rear view mirror! Gotcha! This is just a simple illustration of how we live our lives.

Yesterday, last week, last year and the years before that are gone forever. We can never re-live those moments. Although we can become stuck in the emotions of things that have passed and allow them to dictate how we move about in the present.

Accept the past is over and move forward. This does not imply that happy memories should be abandoned. They are to be welcomed and held tenderly in your heart and soul. What we are speaking of here is situations that keep you stuck. Like relationships that you have labeled as being bad and caused you pain and suffering. These occurred and are now over, when you say they are over. Understand the situation from a different perspective, think of everything that was involved and acknowledge that it happened the way it did because of your consciousness. When we know better we do better and so do others. Let them go now and freed forever from that place of victim-hood.

I am moving forward fully equipped with the many lessons of yesterday. I forgive myself and any others for anything I have labeled as bad or unjust. Justice comes to me when I release the situation and the outcome. Justice comes to me as I forgive completely. Justice is mine for the taking, the taking on of a new attitude and disposition.

I am moving forward with my life, void of any unpleasant memories. I am moving forward with my life with great expectations and lots of love and forgiveness. Forgiving myself first for ever thinking I needed to hold on to something that was so painful to remember. I am now freed from the past and move joyously forward with ease and confidence of a brighter today and tomorrow!

What direction are you going?
