Resources

The government of the United States has incredible resources, but they have proven to be the worst distributor of those resources. Inefficiency and ineffectiveness prevail.

Put the money in the hands of the faith and philanthropic communities. They won’t waste anything, and you will see Heaven and earth move…

Loss

I know many people who have lost children in a variety of ways: accidental drug overdose, suicide, cancer, even murder. The grief never goes away completely, although it lessens a little over time.

The pointless arguing over politics becomes even more inane when you consider it from those parent’s perspective. It’s wasted energy, nothing else.

I encourage you to put your focus on something that will make a difference in the lives of others. The rest is just noise…

Healing

When I was a teenager, my life was full of anger, hatred and resentment. I couldn’t wait to get out of my cruel, sometimes violent home life. I stuffed down a lot of my feelings during these years because I wasn’t “allowed” to feel them. When I finally got free at 18 and moved out, I thought I was leaving my past behind. I thought wrong.

The trauma from the past resurfaces from time to time. Our minds are such incredible supercomputers, lighting fast and efficient at knowing what we need to live fully. We are automatically hardwired to live the way our Creator designed us to live.

Wounds from the past bubble to the top, and we can either face them or stuff them back down. They will return, but our brains know when to allow them to resurface. The wounds appear when we are ready to heal from them. The timing is perfect. Trust the timing…

My Interview With Viktoria Romanova

Are you looking for an inspirational story to begin your day? Consider watching my interview with Viktoria Romanova as she shares her story.

Viktoriia had a nightmare. She dreamed her two year old daughter, Eva, had a blood disease. Imagine the horror she felt when the nightmare came true. Eva had leukemia.

This nightmare had a happy ending. This year Eva, now 8, won the Determination Award at her elementary school! She’s alive and thriving! Click on the link to watch:

Friday the 13th

In western culture, the number 13 is considered to represent bad luck. The “cursed” number takes its reputation from Norse mythology.

Luck doesn’t really exist except in our minds. If luck was real then life would be a series of random events. I believe there is a Divine Order to our lives that is bigger than anything we can understand.

Embrace everything that happens to you in life, even the bad stuff. When you accept that there is no randomness, only structure, it makes the bad things easier to navigate. A little easier, anyway…

Acceptance

Recently I read an alarming statistic: Over 85% of adults in the U. S. don’t like themselves. Eighty five percent. Without going into all the data to back this claim, I accept it to be accurate.

This begs a question. Who do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you see a flawed human being, with ugliness inside and out, or do you see God’s creation? I encourage you to see yourself as the latter.

We cannot fully accept others until we have a healthy self-acceptance. You know your personal character defects, and only you can change them. Working on ourselves is the hardest thing we will ever do, but it’s so worthwhile…

Seek Help

We are independent, aren’t we? Self-sufficiency is a sign that you’ve “made it.”

Yet the struggles of daily life remain. Sometimes the challenges we face may seem insurmountable. We try to face it alone because we’re capable of taking care of ourselves.

There may be times when we need help. There’s no shame in seeking someone to come alongside you to help you through a difficult period. In fact, it demonstrates strength to know when you need others.

You are not alone, unless you choose to be…

Weariness

Life can wear you out. Combine the noise from the outside world, the conversations we have with ourselves and the daily grind, people can get worn down and worn out.

It’s important that we take care of ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. You must focus on all four of these areas to maintain a peaceful spirit. When we do this, we are the best version of ourselves. Everyone benefits, especially you…
