So a dear friend of mine and co-worker was recently diagnosed with a huge brain tumor. She went into surgery on a Monday for prep work which took 3 hours, and on Tuesday she had an approximate 8-hour operation to remove the tumor. On Wednesday morning, she was up eating breakfast and sitting in a chair. How amazing is that?! The doctor said she did 110% better than expected! Besides the wonderfully skilled doctors who performed the surgery and the professional staff, I believe the power of prayer, positive energy, and faith added to the success of her outcome. Her Facebook wall was flooded with well wishes. All of her family, friends, and co-workers were praying for her. It seems when both individual and collective prayers are combined, they are very powerful. I believe when we all come together and provide positive support, we can truly impact each other’s lives.

Words have power. Be careful when you speak or write the word ‘trying.’ The definition I am referring to is: “make an effort to do something: to attempt to accomplish or complete something” (from Merriam-Webster.com). When you truly want to accomplish something, you have to eliminate the word ‘trying’ because the universe delivers exactly what you state. You will continue to try or attempt to instead of actually achieve the goal. Be aware of the words you use. You will get quicker and better results when you are more specific and direct with the universe. And of course, always use the powerful words ‘I am.’ See the following examples:
- I am trying to follow biblical principles. ► I am following biblical principles.
- I am trying to practice humility in my daily life. ► I am practicing humility in my daily life.
As we come together for different celebrations around the world during this holiday season, let’s keep one thing in mind. Love. Choose to love people for who they truly are. Choose to love people regardless of their race, color, gender, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, profession, political beliefs, etc. Love is pure, love is positive, and love is powerful. Love your Creator, love yourself, love everyone, and love life.
