Sometimes life doesn't give you what you want, not because you don't  deserve it, but because you deserve more. - Unknown -

For your consideration…

Today’s message came in via a Rolling Stones song. I reminded me of a brother-in-law who passed. He was a crazy Rolling Stones fan so I got a good smile today thinking of  him. These are the lyrics that is our focus today.

You can’t always get what you wantBut if you try sometime you’ll findYou get what you need

Sometimes it seems like we want all of the things we can’t or shouldn’t have. And what we don’t want we get in abundance. Why is that? Maybe it is because we are focused on what is bad for us and our Guidance is offering a better choice or solution. Or maybe it is because we are focused on what we don’t want versus putting our whole focus on what we do. We attract what we are focused on. If we focus on lack of or what we are missing, we get more of the same.

Our message reminds us we are in a partnership and our Guidance is constantly working to help us get all that we need and deserve. Our focus needs to be grateful for what shows up. I love this Dale Carnegie quote;

Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.

We are asked to notice what shows up in every moment and be grateful for it.

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.”

-Remember…You are the keeper of the light. Wherever you go there can be no darkness.

-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.

-Notice what shows up. It is a blessing.


What made me smile yesterday…

-A beautiful day.

-A bit of gardening done.

-A good trail walk at Devine Preservation.

-Catching up with Jul.

-A good book.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
