Growing spiritually is like working out at the gym. After the first training session, I desire immediate results. Similarly, once I begin to seek God, I receive immediate results, though I may not see them or they are not what I expect. Just as I train my muscles at the gym, if I want to progress spiritually, I must train those muscles. So, how do we train these muscles? I have found that there are all types of supplements that help me grow spiritually. However, I have found nothing more rewarding than to sit down with one of God’s kids and share my experience, strength, and hope.
Have you awakened to the now? The present moment where we can be still and listen. I have no idea how this Power works, and sometimes I still try to figure it out. The truth is it doesn’t really matter. I have had a revolutionary change in how I view the world and how I view myself. This Power has taken me to a new place where I can be useful to His children. Helping others is the solution to all my problems today.
Today, let me have an experience seeking you God. Today, allow me to ask what my next step is to be. Today, let me have patience. Today, let me be a vessel of your love. Today, I will pray for others. Today, I will get out of the way. God thank you for a life of abundance, thank you for spiritual progress, thank you for love. I ask that You watch over friends, family, and everyone that I know or do not know presently. Let me lead by example. Let my voice be yours.
Am I bringing God into all my activities? Are there areas in my life today where I feel I cannot “focus”? I have tried to self will my relationship with my Creator many times and still do at moments. Gratefully, life today is not a struggle. For me, it is about letting God do for me what I cannot do for myself. What am I responsible for? Where is God in this and what is He? I really enjoy this quote, “Seek and you shall find. Ask and you shall receive. ” Once unblocked from the spiritual realm, I became awake, possessed, and led by an Infinite Intelligence. This Intelligence was never separate from me. The fear that I have towards growing and developing a relationship with Power is the delusion that I was ever separate from Power. Where are my feet right now?Let my day be filled with laughter, joy, peace, and love. Help me awake to the miracles in front of me. “But why shouldn’t we laugh? We have recovered, and have been given the power to help others.”
Think about this…..
How many people have not had the chance to be given a solution to all of their problems? I’d say we got it better than good. Let us be grateful.
