Blossom

A tool we all hold within us, “what you put out in the world is always coming back to you.”

When you have been carrying a dark cloud over your life and you see a piercing of light, that moment of clarity comes, suddenly it’s a peace beyond imaginable.  A light that radiates and brings more of our emotions to the surface helps us to see clearly.  As it comes, shining brilliantly and blinding at the same time, you adjust your view accordingly, you see your life waking up to a new perspective, you find what your purpose is or you’ve come to a realization that you’ve been pondering over.  It’s that moment, your “aha moment”!

Every action generates a force of energy, what we give, we receive.

Realizing for myself, every dark cloud that has been over me has developed a light passing through it right when I needed it the most. For that, I am grateful and blessed. The piercing light is more powerful though. It’s a robust brightness of vibrant colors, a source of colors you will never forget. The brilliance of the changing expressions and emotions you encounter during the process leaves you with a lifted weight of a burden that you have been carrying, ahh, at last, you are free!  Close your eyes for fifteen seconds, reopen them to adjust your vision. Your perspective has changed. You find where you belong, what your purpose is, and who you belong to.  The wait is over for you to blossom into the real you, the one that God intended for you to be from the beginning.

I have accepted what I expect to happen and what will happen are two different things.  What hurts is to expect something that you’ll never get.  I’ll never have some things, or some people in my path that I think should be. I trust God to do what is best according to His purpose for me, and those not in my path are not there because of one reason or another that I am not privy to know.  You may be wondering why someone walked out on you without giving you a reason, let them go, do not carry their burden, they are not meant to be a part of your blossoming future.

The vibrancy of the colors of life are the memories of the past, the present life we are blessed to have and the future. Make sure your colors blossom according to what matters most to you.  Give from your heart without expectations and God will help you bloom into the beautiful soul He created you to be!

“It is not about the position with God, but the presence with God”. 

Just as the flower blooms into a brilliant beautiful creation, so are you!  Take on your journey the heart that God gave you to give to others, be in HIS presence, however that looks for you, and blossom. His reward will come to you in abundance beyond your imagination.

In Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

May you be covered by His Garment of Grace,

Flowers In Flight

In a roller-coaster flight, the winding tracks go up, the ride gains momentum, pushing toward the top only to decline in the valley of the ride.  Doesn’t sound like much fun, does it?  Just as we climb every mountain before us to gain momentum, we also fall deep into the valley prey to disappointment. Sometimes in these moments, we lose friends, opportunities, sometimes even family.  At what cost shall it be to climb the mountain or turn on the winding track into the path of our purpose?

SO SERIOUS ~ TwEEtIe…NOT!!

hA ha hA…

the wind blows to the north

the wind blows to the south

the wind blows to the east

the wind blows to the west

do we really know which way the wind blows?

similar to the story of our life, you never know which way it will go

so serious

release the inner child, your true self, a life of inspiration to others, not a life expecting a pat on the back for a job well done because you climbed that mountain of hell.

sure, sharing your life story and how you have overcome is great, at what point will you stop making it about you, stop being so serious and live a little more freely.

legalistic

scripture tells us more than our brains can comprehend.  remember not to be legalistic or pretentious, displaying perfection. nowhere in the bible does it say that you can’t laugh, that you can’t have fun.  Jesus had a fun filled life and ….in case you didn’t know…you ain’t GOD!

yep…my grammar is not perfectly placed in this blog….you know what…I did it ON PURPOSE!  So serious……get out and enjoy the sunshine, enjoy family, friends, and stop displaying yourself on social media, or your blogs, or anywhere.

If you want to share the love of God, and all that He has done for you, make it personal, face to face, one on one to those who need it most.  Take a walk with your neighbor, visit the hospitals, the nursing homes, share a moment with a veteran, someone is always facing a harder walk than you. Whether it be cancer, drug addiction, loneliness, depression, whatever it is…it’s not the end all of end alls…get off your soap box and stop drowning yourself in your own pitty or if you are pattin’ yourself on the back…careful not to break your arm for lack of reach…boasting is a sin too!

It’s not about me, it’s not about you, it is about others and bringing smiles,

hope, and love to other people!

 

Jesus tells us that man’s praise is short-lived and shallow (Matthew 6:2), but God himself will reward the things done in secret (Matthew 6:4).

Feel the wind, go have some fun and live life.

Stop seeking man’s praise and start living your best life yet!

I am here to say…don’t quit! Continue reading “Unlock Your Future”
