For your consideration…

We like to think we can negotiate…make a bargain…with God. The reality is we already did that when we accepted our life purpose before we were born. Once we are born there is no more negotiation.

This scares us. We like to think that we can beg God for what we think we want and need. We mistakenly label this as our Faith. True Faith is knowing and believing that God has a plan for us and he knows we can carry it out. He will guide us. He will put the road blocks up that we need to stay on our path. He has provided us the life tools we need. He provides us the opportunities we need to fulfill it. Believing these things is where our true Faith needs to be.

There is no more negotiation. Our life purpose is already in motion. We are living it….just like we agreed to…just like God planned. Believe in the solidity of our plan…our contract…with God.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Have Faith in your plan…your life purpose.

What made me smile yesterday…

-Making it to Mindfulness class.

-The sun.

-Lots of tasks done including…..defrosting and cleaning out the downstairs freezer. It is a big job…thankfully it only has to be done every couple of years.

-A good book.

-It is freezing here in Michigan. We might be thinking the groundhog got it wrong and Spring will not come early. BUT the groundhog that lives in our woods and frequents our yard is back…fat as can be. Spring is coming. Wahoo.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
