God can make all things right by you.  Reach out.  Ask him.

This is a constantly evolving issue for me.  My life is golden because I put my faith in God.  On an intellectual level I realize that EVERYTHING happens for a reason, that EVERYTHING happens to teach us a lesson.


Not for retribution.  God doesn’t work like that.  We are put here to learn from past experiences, from previous lives.  We are put here to move forward, to become more God Like; so that at some point in the future we can CHOOSE to return if we want.  As I said, I know this on an intellectual level.  It’s only when I must put it into practice that I sometimes meet with resistance.  


Complaining is not something I do.  However when I have a challenge in my life, EVERYONE knows as I wear my heart on my sleeve.  My emotional state when I’m in turmoil is front and center.  I’ve ALWAYS been this way and I think it’s a result of having been raised by emotionally sensitive people.  You know that saying:
Children learn what they live.


Well, I learned to be sensitive.
I learned to wear my heart on my sleeve.


I can usually re-center myself by asking God to take away the challenge that is in my life. I’ve learned that that works and it’s yet another reason my faith is so strong.  


So what’s the lesson HE is teaching you?
Are you paying attention?
Do you attempt to work through your turmoil on your own?  If so, how is THAT working for you?

Do you seek God out?


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

    I always turn to the Lord in the good times and bad. He is my rock, and I can trust that the lessons He wants me to learn are for my own spiritual good. Blessings, Chris!
