COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

© Sandy Rodgers Ministries

 January 4th

The other day I sat and decided to write down my Blessings of the previous year. I began by listing the twelve months and thought I would write one event per month. Next thing I knew, there were two, then three events or situations. Finally I ran out of room. So I listed the twelve months again and began the process all over! There is magic in doing this exercise. Some of the miracles that had unfolded for last year had not come to mind for a long time. This exercise gave me the opportunity to relive the event and be Thankful all over again and it felt great!

This year I may list my Blessings monthly. No, actually I think I will do this weekly; better still how about on a daily basis. When we remain in a state of sincere gratitude our Blessings seem to manifest at a faster pace. Or when we are focused on our Blessings life is wonderful.

So start today and make your gratitude list. My list begins with waking up this morning, with or without an alarm clock. The fact that I woke up is a Blessing. Next is my ability to get out of bed, even if I am still sleepy. It means I had a bed to sleep in and I have fully functioning body parts. As I move about my home, I am grateful for each piece of furniture that occupies my dwelling. I am thankful that I can make my first cup of coffee; thankful for the wonderful aroma of coffee brewing. I have the sense of smell and my nostrils are working as they should.

As I sit and wait for my coffee I listen to nature, the birds seem to enjoy singing to me early in the morning. Their sweet melody is music to my ears.  I look out the window and can see with my two eyes the beauty of the day. It is wonderful when the sun is shining brightly and I love it when it rains. Rain seems to always wash away and make fresh the air I can breathe. As I make my first cup of coffee I can feel the touch of the hot coffee pot, the smooth surface of the coffee cup. I can taste this delicious beverage and am extremely appreciative.

Now fully awake and functioning I can appreciate my life. I can now decide what I will think and do with this day that I have received as a Blessing. What will I leave in the space of today of my memory bank? Will it be wonder-filled, affirming thoughts and actions or negative self-defeating thoughts?

I choose this day to COUNT MY BLESSINGS, whatever they may be!!!

A.S.K.

 

December 27th

A.S.K. – Awakening Spiritual Knowledge!

There resides within each of us a divine knowledge of everything we need to know to live an abundant and prosperous life. We have overlooked it because we have been trained not to recognize our connection to The Source, God.

The truth is we can summons this knowledge and power whenever we choose. It is awaiting our attention. All that is, is within us. The Creator gifted us with this Spiritual Knowledge. It is buried in our hearts. It is alive when we acknowledge its existence.

Spiritual Knowledge is that knowing without physical proof. You cannot explain it. Even if you could others may not understand you, which may cause you to lose faith in what you know to be true. Spiritual Knowledge is that little voice telling you to go ahead because everything is going to be just fine and dandy. Just do it! The words scream at you. Are you listening?

Spiritual Knowledge is that dream that keeps repeating itself over and over again in your dreams. You wake up and think, what a strange dream I had last night. There are times when we are not paying attention to our innermost desires and our dreams reveal to us they are still alive and waiting.

You can awaken that power within you. Spiritual Knowledge surpasses all intellectual understanding. Spiritual Knowledge is accepting the power and presence of God, The Creator, The Source living and dwelling inside of you. Spiritual Knowledge knows no separation, knows no boundaries, and knows no limitations.

Dare to A.S.K. today. Awaken Spiritual Knowledge within you right now. Allow it to grow and expand with each breath you inhale and exhale. Breathe it in fully. Know that it is yours all the time!

BEAR FRUIT WITH PATIENCE

 

December 17th

Once upon a time I enjoyed planting and harvesting my garden in California. It always amazed me how a little seed planted in the ground and nurtured would grow into maturity. When the weeds were kept away and it received proper care, the results were always the same; a delicious vegetable or fruit.

 

When we desire newness in any area of our life, we must take the same steps as in harvesting a garden. First we must select what it is we want go grow. There are various varieties of the same thing. The difference can be slight or major. So we are to be deliberate in our selection to guarantee we grow exactly what we desire.

 

Next we prepare the ground for the planting of the seeds. A shovel and hoe is used to spade the ground, this shakes up the dirt and removes any debris. You determine the width and number of rows you need.  This is the same action that is required when you want to manifest something new for yourself. We must prepare the ground first, which is our thoughts. If you plant the seeds prior to properly preparing the ground you are asking for ruin or trouble. As it is with making changes, we first must decide what and why we are changing. It is not advisable to jump into anything too quickly. Ask yourself the necessary questions, prepare the ground first.

 

We plant the seeds into the ground, carefully spacing where we plant the seeds. If they are too close together they can grow together and the roots can die. So careful spacing is crucial.

 

We water and care for the ground in which the seeds are planted. We wait for the results of our labor. We are excited when the plant first begins to break the earth with its leaves of new life peeking through. We do not become anxious become we cannot rush the process. It will complete the cycle in its due time. And finally you have your perfect fruit!

SACRED INTIMACY

 

December 11th

Sacred Intimacy is going within and communing at the very core of who you are with The Source.

This is a private activity that connects you to the Spiritual energy of the Universe. It is Prayer. It is Meditation. It is Breath. It is aloneness with God. It is the time when you shut down all else and concentrate on your connection with Infinite Spirit. It is just YOU and The Creator.

Still your thoughts. Turn off the outside environment, the radio, the TV, the self talk. Become very, very still. Trust that you can do this. Say to yourself and the Universe that you are grateful to be alive. Thank God for your existence. Shout it loud if you can. Give Thanks. Simply Give Thanks.

Allow yourself to bask in the goodness that is all around you. Think positive thoughts. Be happy that whatever is in your life today is there for a reason. Accept the lesson and blessing in it. Immerse yourself in complete LOVE! Feel the Love as it radiates through your entire body. It may feel like an electrical current or a tingling sensation. However, It is Love Energy that has been waiting for you to recognize and welcome it into your experience.

Love is Powerful! Love is Awesome! Love is healing! Love is energizing!!!

Enjoy your Scared Intimacy each day. Go to that place within you and truly treasure your ability to connect with the energy that sustains life. It is yours to fully appreciate. It is available to you at your beck and call. Just summon the Power and it is there.

Today I experience an incredible Sacred Intimacy that satisfies my every need, care and concern.

Thanks God.

FORGIVE SELF

 

December 5th

I forgive myself for holding on to things which no longer serve me. I forgive myself totally and completely for any negative emotions I have not allowed myself to release. I forgive myself for not honoring the life and beauty in me. I forgive myself for not loving unconditionally!!!

I forgive myself because I have become my own worst critic. I release the need to beat up on myself for missing the mark. I forgive myself because I believe I have to work hard to be acceptable and gain entrance into the Kingdom of God. I forgive myself because through unforgiveness I cannot move freely; I cannot move forward nor can I accept others.

I forgive myself to liberate the God consciousness in me to fully operate and express through me. I forgive because The Source harbors no ill feelings about me. I Am made in the image and after the likeness of The Most High. I forgive myself for not consistently loving me enough to not cause harm to my body temple. I forgive myself because I have held on long enough to these worn out false ideas about what makes me a good person. My standards are from on high and from that position I Am good and very good, even from my inception. I am not conceived nor born into sin. My existence was created from an act of love and passion.

I forgive myself because I must accept that the actions I took represented my understanding at that time. Now that I know better, I do better. Today I declare with full intention to completely and totally forgive myself of any labels or false names I have placed on myself. Today I freely choose Forgiveness.

God forgives all my actions. I forgive all my actions. I am freed by and through FORGIVENESS. As I learn to forgive myself it is very easy to forgive all others. My choice is simple: I FORGIVE ALL BEGINNING WITH MYSELF!!!

HELP IS HERE

God is your ever present help! This is awesome. This is wondrous. This is incredible.

You do not need to wait for your help, it is already here! If you choose to think that you are denied or delayed in your desires becoming a reality then that is real for you and your manifestations. I choose to think a new thought of completion today. I give thanks for miracles that are already present in my life, this day! I can see them already manifested. I can touch them with my bare hands as they are in full manifestation. I can hear the sounds of congratulations as I have stayed on course and reaped the benefits of focus.

My help is present, right now, right here for me. I accept my help from The Creator. I pray giving honor to The Most High for realized dreams and goals. I simply allow myself to feel the completion and it is done. I feel the Grace of God actively working Blessings in every area of my life. I trust God is at work on my behalf. I am connected through prayer and meditation with Source daily. I get my fill early in the morning before I begin my day of activities. I know to say THANKS and move about with ease and confidence.

I am Thankful for my help is here. I trust the process of direct communication with God. I go often to the direct link and hook myself up to receive the abundance from The Most High.

I no longer restrict my Blessings to a future date. I accept my Blessings right now because I know with God it is done. Thanks God for blessing me.

A PRECIOUS GIFT

 

Our children be they grown adult children or newborn babies are precious gifts. God has given the parents the task of caring for these precious commodities. They are our precious cargo.

It is also the duty of the Village to care for our babies. In times past the elders of the community willingly and willfully aided in the care of the children. But something changed and you can find these days elders who are not prepared to help with the youth or elders who are not so willing to assist.

Our children are precious gifts even when they do not behave in a precious manner. It is still our responsibility to help care for the small children. The community must return to a state of knowing that each must take a role in creating the vision we have for a better society. The village elders have the wisdom and skill to assist. However they must be welcomed into the role as a respected and valuable entity in the raising of our children.

Do you volunteer in your community to serve the youth? Do you have an hour that you can donate to the well-being of the youth and the community? There are children who go astray because of the lack of concern and attention given to them. It will not take much if everyone helped and aided the youth in their respective communities. These babies deserve our attention and love.

Our precious cargo may miss the opportunity of learning the correct history of our culture. How did your fore parents get to the United States? As most of us that live here have migrated from somewhere else, do you know the history of your family? Can you share that history so the rich heritage is preserved?

I thank God for the children. I thank God for my role in helping to encourage and strengthen them. I thank God for a community of folks who willingly give freely of themselves to improve the lives of our Precious Gifts.

HUMBLE AND HUMANE

I live my life in a state of being humble and humane.

I am humbled first by the gift of my free existence. I thank God today for gifting me with another day to live and breathe and have my being in God. I am humbled by the prosperity given to me through the Omniscience One. I am one with God at all times. I can use my power and my gifts whenever I choose. I am endowed with certain rights and privileges by being an heir to the Kingdom. God has created this force known as my life. God sustains my life. God grants me Peace and Patience, Love and Joy, Harmony and Forgiveness.

I seek to serve with sincere appreciation. I am kind, tender and merciful; all the attributes of being humane. I act and carry myself in complete integrity and honesty. I am the best me I can be. I am working on any identified traits that do not serve me as a Child of God. I am seeking a Higher Consciousness daily.

I humble myself at the altar of God, which is in my heart of hearts. I treat each living creature with a humane gesture. I Am a child of The Most High Creator. My actions demonstrate the Indwelling Presence is active. I am alert with kindness, showing tenderness to all especially those in my household. I follow the path of Unconditional Love and accept others just as they are.

I am humble and humane, two very noble attributes of the human being. I honor and respect, not condemn and criticize. I am part of the whole and respect my place in the overall scheme of life. I accept and encourage, not tear down and trash. I lift up with affirming words. I salute each person as they travel along this journey of life. I am one with every living creature. I show Compassion as a person is faced with a challenge. I give praise to a job well done by another.

I Thank God for life! I Thank God for my life!

REMEMBER THE SABBATH

Scripture tells us to remember the Sabbath and to keep it Holy. The Sabbath is a different day depending upon which doctrine you ascribe to. For the unity of those reading this message, the Sabbath is any day you desire for it to be. For with the observance of the Sabbath we are told to take a day of rest and honor The Creator with worship.

I worship The Creator as often as I can. I have church in my house as regularly as I can. The Church is in your heart and it is not in a building. Have your Sabbath seven days a week if you choose. By giving Thanks to The Creator you are observing the Sabbath. The rest you take does not have to be a full day, it can be a partial day or an allotted time daily.

Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy. Always dedicate time to be alone with the God of your choice. God is God and will not be effected by whatever name you choose to describe The Source of your Strength. Keep the communication Holy means to not allow any distractions. Go into your closet of prayer and be in direct, undisturbed communication with The Most High. Prayer is available to you at all times. No one needs to know you are praying. You can say a silent prayer without disruption to anything going on around you.

There has been plenty of times when I had to call on My Source for help and guidance. As a car is speeding up behind me with my grandchildren in the car, I can call on God for Divine Protection! As I am helping someone through a situation or the death of a loved one, I call upon God in prayer.

Keep the Sabbath Holy, keep your thoughts positive, pure and focused on Thanksgiving. Give Thanks for your life. Give Thanks for every little thing in your life. Be in an attitude of gratitude constantly. That is a sure fire way to:

REMEMBER THE SABBATH AND KEEP IT HOLY!
