My life has been a series of unfortunate events for sure…
But to leave it at that would be such a tragedy because my life has ALSO been a series of Divine Miracles.
So which one am I going to focus on?
Which part of my story is the most interesting,
the most amazing, and will garner the most attention?
For me…I am going to choose to focus on the miracles.
It seems that no matter what tragedy has fallen in my lap, (if I am honest)…I would also have to point out the fact that at the exact same time that the tragedy was unfolding, so were the miracles that would somehow carry me through the tragedy.
When I found out that I was pregnant with my fourth child, I was upset.
Pregnancy for me is a difficult situation where I am sick 24/7 for the entire 9 months, among several other complications that I experience.
But little did I know at the time that this child would end up being the very thing that saved my life when Victor killed himself.
She was only 8 months old when he died, and she NEEDED me to take care of her.
She gave my life purpose and meaning when I was at a point where I was struggling to see the meaning in anything.
I think life is like that for everyone if they are being honest.
Everyone experiences difficulties, heartache and drama but the truth of who you are is never found in the loss, the sadness or the pain that being a human being brings.
The real truth of who you are is a beauty as constant as the northern star.
We are loved and cared for by a compassionate God who will never abandon us.
If God is absent from your life, you need to acknowledge that it was you who turned your back on Him, not Him who left you.
All you need to do is ask for His forgiveness and invite Him back into your heart.
If you remember nothing else then, never forget that beyond the troubles of this world there is another place where you can choose the part of you that is always loving and true, and totally in touch with the knowledge that we are all one and that a part of us always was and always will be perfect.
Because that is who you are to God. Our Savior gave us a priceless gift on the cross, and He wants nothing more than to have you use that gift.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
Another big thing that I have found is that I should never be afraid to ask tough questions.
So often I have found the answers were in my heart all along.
It is by asking questions that you will soon come to realize how freedom and choice are always yours.
The problems we encounter can be vast, varied and many, but the solutions are always found in joining with that special place in your heart where the truth of who you are is found.
Believe that in the heartache this world sometimes brings, there is an opportunity to discover and grow the self you were meant to be.
Believe that you can be anything you truly want and know that you are not alone in a journey that is sometimes fearful and difficult.
The constant companion of your heart is the true you that is always there as you discover the strength you can be.
Learn to use this invaluable resource.
For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
Know that the strength of your heart, can offer blessings beyond your imagination to your world.
Choose with total acceptance the fearless you,
The complete you.
And the you than can shine to a world that longs for truth, integrity and love.
As you remember who you really are, you will also remember that by asking the question, believing in the answer and choosing a way forward, you now become the song of life itself.
Take this message and remember the beauty in that special place which is within each and every one of us;
a limitless resource,
a problem solver,
a hope for the future
and a gentle light reminding us that we are not alone.
So for today, be wise just in the moment and know the vast and unlimited resource that is available to you, that is not dependent on anything for the simple reason that it comes from from you.
The true you.
And the true self.
In a world that deserves to see exactly who you are and what you can contribute, enhancing life itself.
Be fair to your self.
Be true to your self.
And be you to your self.
Love has come to light the way.
When you get in touch with that part of yourself that is untouchable,
That is the beauty of your own creation,
That is beyond the world…
Then you find the strength, the solution and the realization that within that perfection all answers are awaiting discovery.
