I know there are many people who struggle with the belief in God (I have been there). Some of us have the attitude, when I see it, I will believe it. But I have come to learn over the years, it’s actually quite the opposite; when you believe it, you will see it. I can tell you, truthfully, that I have so many experiences to justify my belief in God. These miracles started showing up when I started showing up, when I made the choice to believe FIRST. Things started going my way, because I put my faith and trust in God first. Life is easier now because I know that I am constantly being guided by a higher power. The stronger my belief is, the better I am becoming emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically, socially, and financially. When a situation comes about, I keep in mind that God is in control and has a plan. So I ask you this simple question: what do you have to lose? If you are not satisfied, you can go back to the way you were living. I can promise you that you have so much to gain and life will be more fulfilling and will seem effortless when you MAKE GOD PRIORITY. ~dp
Wow… is it just me or does it seem like there is so much negativity these days? People are ready to attack, lash out, and strike at any given moment. Little do they know that they are not only hurting themselves, but they are also creating more negative energy within their circle. These people will then be the first ones to complain about how things are not working right in their lives. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs, but be civil and have some class and respect when voicing them. Besides, if you listen close enough to what is being said without being so critical and close-minded, you might truly learn something. My circle of friends is getting smaller. I refuse to support negative behavior.
Positive thinking is when we have faith and trust in the guiding hand of the universe. Faith is belief not based on proof. Confidence, self-assurance, and certainty is having faith. Faith is when we allow everything to unfold exactly the way it should. It’s not about everything turning out the way we want it to. It’s about accepting things no matter how it turns out. When there is absence of fear and doubt, and when we let go of resistance and control, we can learn to trust and have faith.
All my life I believed I was on a journey to become someone and to fulfill my dreams and goals, until I read this quote:
“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.” — Unknown
I am changing my belief about the journey. I am already someone who is whole, fulfilled, accepted, and loved. Life is not about reaching a destination or the end result. Life is about enjoying the journey without an end.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was a ‘happily ever after’ ending to all stories? If you are in a relationship or looking for a partner, I have to tell you, a ‘happily ever after’ ending is achievable. Typically, this type of ending involves a relationship, but even if you are satisfied being single, my message applies to you too. First, let me ask you this, do you want a happy ending to your story? If you answered yes, you can truly make it happen. You may have to do a little bit of work, but it will be worth every second of it.
If you are already in a relationship, take your partner completely out of the equation, so there is no blaming, criticizing, accusing, etc. Do you have a clear perception of yourself? There are probably qualities that you like (strengths), but there are indeed some that need improvement (weaknesses), and perhaps you’re not even aware of them. Start by assessing your entire self: your character, thoughts, behavior, emotions, fears, habits, doubts, health, appearance, etc. It’s all part of the package. You have to become who you want to attract in your life. For example, be a good listener if you want people to pay attention to your opinions and beliefs; be more forgiving if you want others to forgive you; show consideration and appreciation toward others if you are looking for respect, etc. Not only will you be helping yourself, but you will also bring out the best in your partner. It’s a win/win situation. Maintaining balance, self-awareness, and being present are critical in the process for manifesting a ‘happily ever after’ ending.
I have been evaluating myself for years, and to this day, I still ask myself how can I improve? I am going to have a fairytale ending to my story with my prince charming!
Does God exist? Several years ago, I asked myself this question. I was raised Catholic and said I believed in God, but did I really? It is difficult for many of us to understand why there are tragedies and so much grief in this world if there truly is a God. My personal experiences in life have brought me to believe that God does exist and loves us. The missing link and puzzle pieces have finally come together. The things I have always craved in life are happening effortlessly for me now. Why? Because I have strong faith and belief in God. Does God exist? No one can answer that question for you but you.
When all else fails, and you truly want to help yourself, reconnect with God (or whatever you call the entity or source from which you were created). Ask for help. You will receive the power, strength, and love from the source to overcome the obstacles you are currently facing in life. Don’t be stubborn, because it is impossible to do it alone. When you reconnect with the source and have the fundamental belief that you really can do this, anything is possible.
For those of you who question your belief in God, here you go… this is the perfect movie for you to see this weekend. Click on this YouTube link to watch the official full movie trailer:
God’s not Dead
We may have different beliefs about who created us and how we were originally created. But we arrived here on this planet as human beings from one source and there is no denying that. Does it really matter how we got here or what we label our Creator? The most important part of life is to be grateful for it and make the best of it. We need to remember that we are all in this together.
