Boy, Oh, Boy. It’s Hard Sometimes to do Just That, But, “Staying on the Train” is ESSENTIAL. ~Our Bread…

If we don’t keep our faith and walk in the LIGHT, we can drive ourselves completely cuckoo.  Do you agree?  The trials and tribulations are here to stay.  That’s life.  It’s how we react when the Universe decides to throw us curve balls is what matters.  Do we catch the balls and throw ’em back or do we dodge the balls because they’re out of our league?  Life is all about choices, right?  What kind of “responses” from God do we want to receive in return?  It all falls back on our reactions to circumstances that will determine our fate/destiny.

So, with that said, we have a lot of power in what energy we decide to channel…light or dark, happiness or sadness, faith or hopelessness.  The list goes on and on.  I would think we would all desire to channel our energy that will pass on our light that is bright and sparkly.

God doesn’t allow for our sparks of light to go completely dark.  (thank Goodness for that) Our lives are just like campfires…if we don’t pay attention to what it needs and respond accordingly to return it to a blaze, it will stay solemn, dull, and discouraged.  But, we can make changes in our lives, can’t we?

If we truly stay in tune with what God is telling us, everything will fall in to place.  There’s really no point or benefit in dwelling, festering, complaining.  Get it out of our systems and, MOVE ON!  Otherwise, we’re just “burning our popcorn”.  Popcorn should be delightful…fluffy and happy.  😛

So, let’s leave with this: Stay bright and shiny and ride the wave.  Sometimes it will be a tidal wave with thunder and lightning, but, knowing that these occurrences are blessings in disguise should help us stay smiling through it all and remain happy, regardless of how sh#@*y it seems at the time…because, in the end, if we “pass the test” and remain as “obedient” as we know how to be, Papa will show his gratitude, and, we’ll be in…AWE.  🙂

I LOVE YOU,

Lisa

P.S.

I’ll be finishing up travel school over Thanksgiving break and, I just became a subscriber to a travel magazine.  Can’t wait to share what I learn from reading these.  In the future, would you like to travel with me?

More information from what I’m reading to come.  Hopefully today…

“Dear God, I thank You that I can always turn to You.  When I am faced with the difficulties of life, I can put my trust in You.  Thank you that You are my “refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

‘Habakkuk 3:16 – 19    The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer.’

And, Say THAT Everyday Out Loud! Dare ya! (talking to myself, too ;P)

If you were given a five minute time limit to compile a list of things in which to be thankful, would you feel pretty humbled and appreciative of what we have going for us?  You think your list would be rather long?  We have life.  We have one life, in fact.  A life that really ought to be cherished and appreciated.

Do you agree that it all begins from within?  It is essential that we find our inner peace; an acceptance and love toward one selfThen, we can love others the way Papa would like…properly.

It is to my understanding that having the quality of humbleness is one of the pieces needed to find our inner peace.  What does it mean to be humble, anyway?

So, I think that if we accept our faults, learn from our mistakes, “pass His tests” and, keep on trekkin’, we’ll gain inner strength, clarity, patience and love.  The miracles and blessings will be abundant.  And, our feeling of being connected with the Universe will lend itself to ULTIMATE gratitude towards ALL beings and things.

Yes.  We all feel resentment, disappointed, frustrated, pissed, etc. toward others, sometimes, but, we certainly shouldn’t exert too much energy toward individuals that bring upon such darkening emotions.  When they do come to mind, we ought to, rather, pray that they decide to start shining bright and be a super star each and every day in whatever way they choose…

But, seriously.  I think, in a nutshell, that if we just CHOOSE to be grateful for everything, each and every day, our hearts and souls will be ignited.

No.  I take that back.  I don’t think.  I know it to be true.  🙂

Love you,

Lisa

Let me leave with Kid President.

We Can Be Rest Assured. Thank Goodness! Today’s Bread ~

Life sure is filled with ups, downs, topsy turvies, lefts and righties, ins and outs…sure is a whirl wind!  And, we sometimes have a hard time dealing with the fast-paced lives we live…

If only it could slow down; if only I made more money; if only I would have done this or done that, or, vice versa.  Well, we all know how dwelling on the past doesn’t get us anywhere.  It only stirs the pot, getting the water going at an even more rapid boil.  Maintaining a “simmer”, I think is the way to go.

We ought to know by now that Papa is there through thick and thin.  And, I believe that if we keep our faith on Him, the crazy stinky parts of our lives are just His way of “screaming” loudly to us, “Hang on with me!  The storm is almost over!  Soon you’ll see your rainbow, promise!”

This is a relief, or, should be.

We can trust that He’s ‘working out His purposes for a greater good’.  ‘In every circumstance, we can trust the wisdom of our faithful and loving God.’

To piggy back off of that…I also believe that Papa likes “playing games”.  This is what I call it.  Papa gives us little (or big) tests to see if we’ll falter.  He wants us to pass.  I believe that if we stay “riding His wave” then our rewards will be abundant in so many ways.  On the other hand, God will feel disappointed, yet He’ll forgive, but, this will then lead to less “reapage”.  😛

So, essentially, for what is it that we’ll ask?  Is this the essential question?!  😉

Something to think about…

Love,

Lisa

John 11:21 – 35     Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

“Father, You have carried me through hard circumstances before.  Thank You for teaching me to trust Your heart of love even when I don’t understand what You are doing in my life.”

This is different. We’re Supposed to Ask to See Papa’s Face. Our Bread…

I’ve never done this before!  You?!  Knowing this, does it make you want to give it a whirl?  It does me, for sure!

We could all use some clarity in our life.  You know, those times when making decisions and/or choices seem quite a bit difficult.  We think about the pros and cons…do we need it, what would make us the happiest, is this what Jesus would do?

In order to live a life filled with utmost fulfillment, satisfaction and love, we need Ours Truly.  Bottom line.  No getting around it.  And, for those that are just getting to know me, I’m spiritual.  Not religious.  For I believe that we are “electrical” beings, only trying our darnedest to “get struck” day in and day out with love.  And, that in order TO “get struck” it is an absolute MUST that we reciprocate that LOVE.

It’s very simple, in my opinion.

So, by praying out loud to see God’s face, we’re communicating with Him, which He loves.  The Universe is all about energy frequencies, right?  If it’s in our power to make things happen for ourselves and others, why not use it to our full advantage?  Up perk His ears when we initiate a conversation, when we acknowledge his presence and unconditional love He has for us.  He says “Yes!  You want to reap the gazillion rewards that I (God/Universe/Papa) can provide you!”

From Psalm 80:3, 7, 9… “Make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.”

Lord knows we need forgiveness…and, all of the time!

Papa is always forgiving.  It’s a matter of, do we “get back on the Happy train” regularly or do we “jump off” and deal?  (the latter is poopy) (excuse me…I have two young children and teach kindergarten.  ;))

‘It’s good to look away from our fears and search our Heavenly Father’s Face.  The best way to see God’s face is to look at the cross.  The cross is His “tell”‘.

There’s a ton of spunk in one granule (meaning, each of us)…let’s stay LIT!

Love you so much,

Lisa

P.S.

Don’t be a Nim Wit.

Psalm 80     Restore us, O God; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

‘Ask God to shine His face on you.  For further help in prayer, try praying this Psalm or others.’

Let’s Keep Our Hearts Lit. Our Bread~

Would you agree that Jesus was a man that loved unconditionally?  That he was a man of peace, intelligence, patience, generosity?  So far from selfishness…always maintaining composure…always keeping “his cool”…always finding delight in helping others…a beautiful soul, for sure.

We are so blessed to have Jesus’ energy surround us…day in and day out.  Because of this Majestic light, our hearts, too, can remain sparkly and full of love…for everyone and everything, which then leads to having a peace of mind (knowing that having a strong relationship with Jesus will lead to solutions to problems, a.k.a. miracles)  God is pretty cool like that!  ;P

When it’s all said and done, isn’t life about fulfilling your basic needs and the relationships we have with people?…Are they unselfish, helpful, patient, kind?  Can we testify to living a life accepting others as they are (for it’s hard enough for each individual to live this in this crazy world and do themselves)?  At the end of every day can we say that we loved unconditionally, just the way Jesus did?

This is my challenge to all of us…

Let’s have our hearts evolve.  Let’s open our hearts to allow for more opportunities to present themselves that lend themselves to being that shoulder to cry on, a healing touch, a helping hand.  Feeling loved and cared for is always euphoric.  We all want to be seen and feel connected, don’t we?

Jesus’ mighty strength and love makes it easy to love one another.

Thank you, Jesus.

Here’s to forever loving and honoring You,

Lisa
