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!

Planting seeds in hard ground….

If you have ever gardened or worked with your yard, and especially if you live in Arizona, you learn pretty quickly that the ground here is pretty hard and not too compliant when it comes to yielding to a shovel, spade, or a hoe.

We learned that in order to plant, we first have to treat the ground here with water, over and over to get it to soften and become workable.

The more we work with the ground, the deeper we can dig to allow more room for the plant to take root and grow.

It’s the same with our hearts when it comes to accepting change.

No maybe it’s different for you, but I have learned from experience that until I can soften my heart and become willing to accept needed change and allow it space in my heart, nothing changes, and I remain hardened inside.

When I soften my heart through willingness and allow God’s grace and guidance to plant the needed seeds of change it comes and I grow…

Check your experience...

“His change of heart was dramatic, convincing, and moving.” Big Book pg 55

Lord, let us become willing to allow our hearts to soften to accept the changes You have for us, AMEN.

“Plow up the hard ground of your hearts! Do not waste your good seed among thorns.” Jeremiah 4:3

Have a blessed day y’all!

Try a little kindness...

This is probably not seen too much these days and certainly not reported very often in the news media,..

But kindness covers a multitude of anger, hurtful, and just plain lonely feelings. Perhaps you have already been the receiver of an act of anonymous kindness. Just last week a friend shared how they were pleasantly surprised to learn as they picked up their daily Starbucks order at the drive through window that the unknown person in front of them had paid for their coffee. I dare you to give it a try! Do something anonymously for a random stranger or for a loved one. See how you feel afterwards. Remember, it’s not about being seen doing this, it’s about serving others with no expectation of a return. I promise you that the indirect return you get from this is better than you can imagine! Go on…You can do this! Then…..Check your experience. …. “Were we kind and loving toward all?” Big Book pg 86. Lord, let us show our love today through kindness to those around us, AMEN. "Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32 Have a blessed day y’all! What actions, attitudes, and behaviors are you tolerating and allowing to influence you?
