Divine Help Never Fails…

5 Comments

GOD WILL DIRECT UR STEPS

i apologize for this one being so lengthy, as i can’t seem to find an easier/shorter way to express myself about this subject…and, i will keep it about me, as not to judge anyone who’s been down this road…
here’s the deal…
at times when life threw me some curve balls i tried everything i could, and sometimes nothing seemed to help…i used to think i went to the right people, places and/or things for help, sometimes it helped and sometimes not.
as years went on, i found i was going to the wrong people, thinking they were friends, unfortunately i found they were only there for what they needed from me(i was ok with that b/c my heart is to help others if i can, so i understood it) but yet, it frustrated me b/c now i needed some guidance and there was none to be found, or so i thought.
i began to honestly seek divine help more than ever (i always talked to God , but i never thought i had the right to ask Him to help me with something as trivial as needing people who could teach me or pray with me for help, after all, isn’t He too busy with life’s tragedies and worldwide stuff like war, poverty and disease? i was clueless, being raised catholic i was taught prayers for myself was selfish and prideful as others needs were more important!…
i’m going to skip past this part (it will all be in my book one day lol)
i did find God had particular people He’s given me to go to for prayer and guidance and at times like this,  i will turn to those who are close to my heart and spirit…i know God has put them in my life to stand with me in the best and worst of times. some of them, sadly, have been through the worst of times and yet they are always there for me…(i will always admire and honor them for having such unconditional, loving hearts for me and others).
right now there is no human help for what’s taking place in the here and now, but i do know this, in these times i can and will seek those who God has given me, after seeking Him in all His wisdom…being soul-y dependent on Him, trusting Him and expecting Him to open the path of peace and keep me walking in it steadily as i wait for Him to bring to pass the answers i need.
i know this may sound like gibberish to some…but give me a moment to try to explain a bit…
when there is something in your life that continually causes pain and no matter what you do, it doesn’t ease up, only divine intervention can be the answer… even after some long heartfelt prayer, this is when i realize my efforts of begging or pleading are in vain…why? because there is One who was moved with compassion and love, to come to my aid…but the truth is, He was moved a long time ago and took care of business long before i needed it…
when i came to that realization for the first time, it began to give me a deeper glimpse into the reality of the One who made the earth, the stars, and all things, including human beings…
i don’t want to get into another story here, but i do know this, there is a God who is so loving, so caring, that before our troubles began, He saw to it to give us the answer to every problem before they happened…
by me thinking about ME and MY problem so much, i left out the most important part of the equation…HIM! it seems i lose sight of the whole picture at times and forget there is an answer, even if it’s beyond my seeing at the moment…
i’ve learned through the years, the more i put myself aside and choose to focus on Him the more i begin to understand things from a heavenly perspective.
it’s true i see with my eyes, but i also have spiritual eyes, and i’m choosing more and more each day to look with those eyes, they seem to tell me the truth.
i have found, that if i ask to see with His eyes i get a better perspective on each situation.
this is the divine help that never fails me…with it, i can’t go wrong, it gives me clarity without my emotions getting in my way. and my spiritual friends are an added bonus that God has given me…and silly me, all i had to do was ask for divine help, and voila!
i’m always amazed at how simple things can be…geez, if i only had the sense to understand and ask, but then again, fear kept me from asking, BUT not anymore…i’m freeeeee and it feels good, even in my given situation, i will trust Him, knowing He has all the answers, all i have to do is ask for it to be brought into the light…and, obviously, He is the one who turns on the switch…

peace out…

YOU’RE UNIQUE, CAN YOU LIVE WITH THAT?

i've often wondered about the uniqueness of some people...i've wondered about people's opinions being so critical and even unjust in their evaluation of what being unique is and sometimes labeling it "weird".  i'm here to say, don't you think it's time we begin to value the uniqueness of others and even ourselves? i've come to a place in my life where i've decided i'm going to celebrate my "uniqueness" and be comfy in my own skin, in spite of what others may label me!  to some i'm quirky, to others eccentric, and to a few, plain old weird...but it's time for me to stand with who i am and declare, i am created by one who has a unique way of thinking and creating things, unlike any human i've ever known... if He indeed has created me with these little oddities, who am i to argue?  yes, i am different in many ways (others may suggest), but again "i am who i am" and "it is what it is"... though i may be scoffed at by some, others have embraced my unique way of thinking and creating, and i'm good with that...in the meantime while others teeter on what they think of me, i have decided i am celebrating me and enjoying the ride!  does anyone want to join me? i welcome and double dog dare you to be who you were created to be!! any takers?

i’ve often wondered about the uniqueness of some people…i’ve  also wondered about people’s opinions being so critical and even unjust in their evaluation of what being unique is and sometimes labeling it as “weird”.
so, i’m here to ask if you  think it’s time we begin to value the uniqueness of others and even ourselves?
i’ve come to a place in my life where i’ve decided i’m going to celebrate my “uniqueness” and be comfy in my own skin, in spite of what others may label me!
to some i’m quirky, to others eccentric, and to a few, plain old weird, some have suggested i’m the whole box of crayons! but i’ve realized, it’s time for me to stand for who i am and declare, i am created by the One who has a unique way of thinking and creating things, unlike any human i’ve ever known…
if He indeed has created me with these little oddities, who am i to argue?
yes, i’m different in many ways ( as others may suggest), but again “i am who i am” and “it is what it is”…
though some may scoff, others have embraced my unique way of thinking and creating, and i do delight in that…in the meantime while others teeter on what they think of me, i have decided to celebrate me and my freedom and make it a wild, enjoyable ride!
does anyone want to join me?
i welcome you and double dog dare you to give it a try and believe in who you were created to be!! do i have any takers?

Enough Already...Religion sucks...

ok, i’m taking a big risk here, but right now, i just don’t care and today this is the place to “dump” my stuff…please don’t take offense, i’m just letting off steam…this is NOT about all church people, but for those who do this, i’m sick of it!!
i’m tired of people in the church world who can’t see that it’s not what church we go to that makes us “the” church….it’s about being the human beings we are in the heart and being a reflection of the light to others…
when we can come together in the same heart, then we “TOGETHER” make the church…when we dwell in unity with a heart filled with love for one another and help the poor, be a friend to those in need, bring relief to the hungry, hold the hurting, laugh with those who are happy, rejoice with those who are celebrating, mourn with those in grief…that’s coming together and being “the body” …
there’s an old saying that goes like this ” going to church doesn’t make you a christian, anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car!”…
do people really think god is going to ask us what church we went to when we get to heaven???? helloooooooo… people are dumb…there! i said it!! what is wrong with people? i’ve met more people outside of church who are happy, loving and real, than i have inside, and to be truthful, i like them better!
the church needs to think long and hard about what they’re projecting to others! they need to stop making everyone feel like they’re the only perfect ones and we’re all going to hell if we don’t go to their church!!! come’on now, wake up!!! even Jesus called the church people hypocrites!
here’s the deal…i want to be a reflection of love, grace, compassion, hope sprinkled with freedom, joy, peace, laughter, singing, dancing..to sum it up…i want to be freeeeeeeeee to love whom i please, free to be what others need me to be to bring them what they need…it’s NOT about me…it’s about them!!
what is waiting for me out there? i don’t know, but i want to be the answer for “them”…i want to bring hope to the hopeless….
i’m not talking going to a foreign country kinda thing…i’m talking where ever the need…just being a light to those who never know joy, who need hope for the future…sometimes just lending an ear…whatever the cause, i want to bring the flag of freedom and hope with lots of love to share…
ok ok ok…i’ll stop there…i have so much to say and this isn’t the place….
but i can’t thank you enough for letting me vent and who cares if no one likes me…it’s NOT about me…it’s about “them”…
’nuff said… have a nice day y’all…

Being Yourself Can Seem Strange to Others…

Being Yourself Can Seem Strange to Others...

have you ever noticed people are very critical of how you look?
i have to say many have inspired me (betsey johnson is just one) through the years to “be an original” and i still hold strong to those thoughts, maybe even more today!! i love to encourage others to do the same…after all, we’re all free to be who we are even if it’s mimicking others in the way we dress, sing, write, dance, play sports, etc…people copy designers all the time, male and female, all over the planet!
all this to say and hopefully remind others to “be yourself” don’t be a copy…others are always trying to make you into who they think you should be…well i ask you this…what the heck is wrong with who you are? if YOU don’t like who you are “change it”!!! find what makes you tick…think about what you love, who you admire, those things play a big part in what you become.
just be sure it fits you like your own skin…i do suggest you use good judgement before you take the leap of change, but nevertheless, become who you were created to be, and have fun doing it! you’ll be much happier with yourself and others will love you for it…it’s your world, spread your wings and fly…i did!!!
