Divine Help Never Fails…

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…

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

OK OK, so we all know the world is going crazy,,,obviously, there’s no more RESPECT!!!! and that’s sad…when was please and thank you such a bad thing? when and how did it all stop? where’s the love for others?

but i’m sayin’ we don’t have to sit and watch as the “crazies” do their thing . we can make a difference…all we have to do is “be the change”!!!

it only takes one person at a time to begin acting with loving kindness! if enough people think of others more than themselves we can make a break in this hard, crusty, calcified interior that most seem to have these days…i’ve heard some say they’ve never been shown love, yeah ok, i buy that (sometimes)…but, believe me,that can change too, all it you have to do is check your hard drive…go ahead…try it…

funny how we know all about running computer checks on our laptops, but never check our personal computer, you know the one i’m talking about, right? yeah, you got it…go ahead run the virus scan…oh, and do the deep one not the short scan…check it out…see what comes up? don’t be afraid, no one’s watching…it’s just you and the man who made the computer…

hmmm, do you think it’s defective? ok, kidding…just trying to lighten you up a little…(smile)…

ok ok, let’s go back a bit…i’ll try to be serious here…so, what’s the computer reading? got some junk in your trunk? did you find some glitches that are making you a bit on edge? got some issues with the family, boss, spouse, or maybe your dating and there’s something not working right there? or is it all of the above?  no matter which one it is or how many, the point i’m trying to make is this…start with you, yeah that’s what i said, Y.O.U…we all have glitches, we all need to run the virus scans often…and believe me i’s for our good!

all it takes is a few adjustments, that is, if you can recognize the glitches and agree to work on them…it’s not hard at all…and the key is, wanting it to work, wanting to change…trust me, it’s in the reader’s manual…do you always want to be angry, mad, frustrated, hurt, unloved (that’s really a lie you know, everyone is loved by someone, but that’s another post)…so are these any of the things found on your hard drive?

bottom line is this…start small and make the changes. try it daily, even moment by moment is good…but do it and you’ll find that soon you will feel something warm and fuzzy goin’ on inside…when you feel that…go with it!! and when you go with it, you’ll find you will probably like it!! AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS???? you’re ready to rock and roll!!!

that’s when you make your move and alert your face!! let everyone see your smile, (instead of the frown or disgust or whatever scowl you wore)…DO IT and you’ll be happy you did…and before you know it others will see it and they’ll smile back…hmmmmm, i feel good already!!!

i hope this helps you find your glitch and get back into showing the world some R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

but can i be honest? you’ve got to show yourself some R.E.S.P.E.C.T…. that’s where it begins…and when you do, others will take notice…and then that’s where it all happens, that’s where the change starts to ignite others…so go ahead, do it, do it for them, do it for YOU…do it and change the world, one hard drive at a time…
