Greater Can Only be Achieved by Faith AND Works

I get so excited when I hear people saying their greater is coming. After all, I’m always telling everyone to find the positive. Yes, your greater is coming, but what are you doing to prepare for it? Are you putting in more time/hours? Are you getting professional help? Are you studying? Are you praying? Are you making room? Are you saving? Are you making positive changes? Or are you just sitting back waiting for this greater? Greater can only be achieved by faith AND works.

The Uncomfortable Feeling of Growth

Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.

The Voice of God

I have faith that God will show you the answer. But you have to understand that sometimes it takes a while to be able to recognize what God wants you to do. That’s how it often is. God’s voice is usually nothing more than a whisper, and you have to listen very carefully to hear it. But other times, in those rarest of moments, the answer is obvious and rings as loud as a church bell.

Do not come into agreement with fear. Activate your faith, live in victory, speak over your life and expect great things to come your way.
― Germany Kent

Keeping the faith during tough times can be difficult, even the firmest believers have their test of Faith many times during their lives.  During times of trials, we question everything, our existence, our purpose and our conscious self. Consciousness and Faith are two sides of the same coin, one is the determining factor of how well the other works. Faith reflects the quality of our conscious being. Some are alienated by the word faith because it signifies the acknowledgement of someone higher than themselves having control. It signifies the exitance of God! This is by no means a lesson on Religion, it’s far from it. It’s a lesson on finding your place, purpose and spirituality!

Don’t Look at Life As A Competition

I am convinced that the jealous, the angry, the bitter and the egotistical are the first to race to the top of mountains. A confident person enjoys the journey, the people they meet along the way and sees life, not as a competition. They reach the summit last because they know God isn’t at the top waiting for them. He is down below helping his followers to understand that the view is glorious where ever you stand.

Finding Your Why and Surviving The Ride!

“If you know the why, then you know what you’re fighting for but sometimes the most important thing is not to ask God why. But to ask God to help you survive the ride.”

Throughout our time here on Earth, we will face many adversities, challenges will be put before us that makes us question everything. I know there have many challenges that have even made me questioned my sanity, there have also been adversities that made me just want to give up! However, the battle that we are currently facing gives me no option of giving up or losing my sanity, it has made me pause, reflect and reevaluate many aspects of my life or our lives. Cancer is not new to me, but each experience is new as is poses a different approach or how we deal with it and with each wave, I find myself riding the same emotional roller coaster, just in a different carriage with a different view.
