I never fully understood that concept until Hurricane Katrina. Before that I would pray and ask for Peace not realizing I had work to do in order to attain this. I was a worry wart. I would literally tense up and remain that way. I would say "Father, I give this problem to you". Only to drive myself crazy 10 minutes later stressing over what I had supposedly given to HIM.
After Katrina and a few other huge life events I started to see my mistakes. Through a reliable source I found out that until I learned to walk in FAITH I'd be unable to walk in PEACE. Learning this has been most liberating! I BELIEVE that I'm held by the Father and HE can handle any of my burdens far greater than I ever could.
Learning to meditate and get to know ME was a complete challenge, but while getting to know me I also learned how to walk in complete faith with HIM.
End Result: I get to enjoy each day with Peace in every aspect of my life.
Each new day brings new lessons and growth. I'm open to all of it, because the spirit guiding me LOVES me and wants me to be happy...Blissfully ☺
Things I've Learned:
1. Trust in The Father
2. His love is unconditional & everlasting
3. He speaks to our hearts
4. Happiness starts with YOU
5. Simplicity is best
6. In helping others you help HIM
7. Stress KILLS
8. It takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile
9. We are all HIS Masterpieces
10. Believing CAN change lives
This is not some religious rant. It's the words of a child of God who feels like sharing her thoughts. It's simply ME being ME.
I wish YOU Peace♥
