It is not the chosen who are saved, but those who choose God. Live one day at a time. To worry over tomorrow’s demands is to lose sight of today’s blessings. Rid your mind of the negative things so that there may be room for the positive. There are a thousand good starters for one good finisher. To trust in God with one part of your mind and harbour fear in the other part is to be a house divided against itself.
Who has not at some time or other planted a bulb and enjoyed the pleasure of waiting for the plant to appear and develop, and ultimately produce the glorious flower itself? Notice here that you naturally plant the bulb and expect the flower, the hyacinth or the crocus, to follow. No sane person would dream of planting the flower and expecting a bulb to come up, yet in our general life, many of us do just that! We expect to begin with the flower. We think that we shall have desirable states of mind or body—happiness, freedom, health—if only we can change outer conditions in some way. Yet this is really trying to plant a flower because we are trying to put effect before cause.
The law of the universe is thought first, and then expression; and never can this law be reversed.
Life may be fair but there is always someone or something out that that moves the goal pole and make it otherwise less fair. ~Etta D Richards
The past few weeks have been challenging, with one mountain after the next rising up in my path, gave the impression that the Universe was conspiring against me. I won’t rehash the situations at work, the more things change the more they stay the same. From past experience, I’ve learned that when something in your life doesn’t change you have to change yourself and your way of thinking towards that thing or person(s) guarding yourself against any and everything that does not feed your spirit.
