Another way to see things…

We use our eyes to see all that this world has to offer.

That’s part of being human.

We are also equipped with another way to see.

Our Spiritual nature inside of helps us to see in a different way.

We cannot see the air we breathe, yet we take it for granted that it’s here. We naturally take it for granted that when we flip a light switch the light will come on and when we put the key into the ignition the car will start.

This comes from FAITH.

We learn by doing and by feeling.

This is how we develop our spiritual eyes.

Now it’s a fact that we all crawl before we walk.

So we cannot develop spiritual eyes overnight.

Like the air we breathe, light switch, and the key in the ignition, we build up a continued and familiar experience over time that allows us to believe it will work.

It’s the same with our faith.

We have to build on it and grow it so that we can rely on it in times of uncertainty.

Check your experience….

“In this book you read again and again that faith did for us what we could not do for ourselves.” Big Book pg 70

Lord, open the eyes of our hearts through building and growing our faith in You and Your Word, AMEN.

“For we walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7

Have a blessed day y’all!

Walk your talk…

Plan your work then work your plan…

Stay in the now…

Keep your feet on the ground but keep reaching for the stars…

These are just a few of the takeaways and good reminders I have gathered over the years in the 12 Step rooms.

What all of these encouraging words mean to me is that I must walk daily on the path of humble spiritual growth.

I have found the best way for me to do this is by keeping a picket fence of friends around me who not only share a strong faith but also practice spiritual principles in their daily lives that allows us to live transparently as we grow in our walk with Christ…

“We shall be with you in the Fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy Destiny.” Big Book pg 164

Lord, thank you for filling my heart with a humble willingness to know You better daily and surrounding me with others who also seek to know and do Your will, AMEN.

Be transformed.....

Those pesky expectations I sometimes allow to sneak in and dominate my thinking always cause me confusion when real everyday life fails to match up to the picture in my head of what it's SUPPOSED to be like.

I do my best to neither set expectations nor try to live by expectations of others.

Everyone is human, and like me, prone to faults, fears, and forgetfulness.

I have found through years of trial and error, that when I try to be present in the moment and work with what I have instead of what I think or feel I should have, my day and my life goes better.

When those pesky expectations try to grab my attention and sway my thinking, I turn them over to God and stay in the moment trying to be of maximum service to those around me.

Maybe you can relate…

Check your experience…

"Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives." Big Book pg 86

Lord let us renew our minds and refresh our hearts with Your Spirit replacing our expectations, AMEN.

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind," Romans 12:2

Have a blessed day y’all!
