The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree….

Have you ever noticed the fruit produced tends to depend on the health of the tree?

Trees that are given ample water and live in well maintained soil produce the best fruit.

Trees that get little water and are located in not so fertile soil don’t produce much fruit and the fruit that is produced usually does not compare in quality to a healthier tree.

If you think about it, our lives are the same way.

When we are connected to a healthy, positive, and nurturing spiritual, emotional, and physical environment, we tend to be healthy for ourselves and others.

When our surroundings are full of negativity and all kinds of chaos, we struggle to receive the spiritual food needed to be healthy…

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

How fertile is your environment?..

Check your experience…

“His roots grasped a new soil.” Big Book pg 12

Lord, let us surround ourselves with a fertile environment filled with love, grace, and growth, AMEN.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit.” John 15:5

Change your thoughts and change your world…

If we can change our thoughts, we can change our attitudes.

If we change our attitudes, we can change our actions.

If our actions change then our behaviors follow.

Finally, if our behaviors change, then so do our habits.

It starts with us folks.

We need not let the actions or influences of others control us!

No matter how good it looks on the TV or the internet does not mean we HAVE to HAVE it to be complete!

God gave us free will for a reason in order to allow us to consciously make our choices and decisions based on what’s in our hearts and not dominating our mind’s eye at the moment. …

Check your experience. …

“The persistence of this illusion is astonishing.” Big Book pg 30

Lord, let us be transformed by seeking Your will daily and not falling to the illusions of the material things f this world, AMEN.

"Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you,” Romans 12:2

Have a blessed day y’all!

We GET what we GIVE….

As we celebrate Mother’s Day, a great example of unconditional love is seen in a mother’s love for her child.

Because we are human, it’s a part of our DNA to unconsciously and naturally seek unconditional love.

Most of us spend our lives seeking it and never quite finding it.

Perhaps it’s because we are looking with the wrong motives.

We GET what we GIVE.

That is a spiritual principle.

In my experience I have only received unconditional love when I am in a mental, spiritual, and emotional state to give this.

I have learned I must give unconditional love in order to be able to receive it.

God loves us unconditionally but until we are willing, we cannot receive His love.

It’s the same with our relationships here on Earth.

Until we are willing to give love unconditionally, we cannot receive it. …

Check your experience….

“Love and tolerance of others is our code.” Big Book pg. 84

Lord thank You for loving us unconditionally. Please open our hearts with Your Spirit to enable us to be willing to give love unconditionally so that we may receive it, AMEN.

“As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you;" Isaiah 66:13

Have a blessed day Y'all!
