Grace: Getting You Through the Tough Times

14925648_10155445190588266_197970097980796208_n

Grace has been described as kindness and favor. When you are going through tough times grace is one thing that helps you to get through it. Kindness shown to yourself in the form of patience in the times when you do get frustrated, angry, upset, or down is what you have to extend towards yourself. Instead of beating yourself up over how what is a normal feeling or reaction in tough times, extend yourself some grace. Rationalize that it’s normal to have these feelings and reactions at times. It is human and what matters is how you correct yourself , respond or forgive yourself!

Grace extended to us my our Creator is the push we need or the spark we need to keep on going in the midst of setbacks, trials, and tribulations. Grace from the Creator is sufficient in your times of trouble means it is enough to keep you going or balanced. Grace happens through the creator in those moments least expected. It’s like a gift given to you for no reason at all and come in any form.

Grace shown to you by others who can see you are having a tough time warms your heart and is fuel to your fire that may have waned or gone out.

Just remember, to extend some grace to others who are having a tough time. We all need some grace.

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings: The Room where Wisdom is Openly Spoken

 

textgram_1477239346

Yesterday I taught in a room where wisdom was openly spoken by every one. It was the greatest feeling of freedom in the world. I will share this week what I talked about, but for now I just want to bask in the afterglow of what it must feel like to be your authentic self and not bound by chains of tradition, culture, and man made rules. I taught or shared, and while all but one was mostly free to listen and not interject or impose, it was a good to my soul. It was like minded people, yet unique. Very mature and secure in their relationship with God. All, but one had no need to challenge my experience, my divine conversation with God, and the one was soon quiet. It is a mark of divine intelligence when you can let a person be and instead of challenging them on everything you think differently about,  you seek to understand!!!

I appreciated the opposition as I now know how to handle that when I get the opportunity to teach and share again. I see she is one who has not learned to listen to understand instead of listening to oppose and impose. It is all good. Nothing can take a way from that day. When I was done we sat around for 2 1/2 more hours sharing. I felt like we were connecting and filling each others backpacks for our own individual journeys. I did not feel like I was in a prison as I can sometimes feel like when I am in other spiritual or religious settings. I much rather feel like I am at school. Learning. Except for in school, you don’t get to always share freely your thoughts because you don’t want the teacher or those that idolize the teacher to be upset with you for thinking differently (ha ha ha). So you share the part of you they can handle or you just be quiet. However, not the case yesterday. I was free as the eagle I am! Yes, God…more of that please.

From Breakdown to Build Up

0c06c302e586f636b1997fbbb2ca986a

When I gave birth to my daughter, I suffered from post partum depression. Suddenly, my worst fears took over and I felt incompetent as a mother. I felt she would be better off without me because of the things that happened to me in the past. No one protected me and I couldn’t protect myself. I thought there is no way I could protect her. I had an irrational fear that the same things that happened to me would happen to her. I was on the verge of a serious breakdown. As a matter of fact, I was having a breakdown.

As I was getting the help I needed, the doctor asked me what is the one thing you gained from this ordeal, the one thing you feel about yourself? I thought for a second and out of my mouth came these words “I am stronger than I think.” She looked directly at me and said “Yes you are. You are stronger than you think.”

I have used those words throughout my life to get me through some serious tough times and some pitch black moments. I use those words often when I feel as though too much is happening and I am losing the battle. I use those words to push through. I also have realized I am smarter than I think. I am also braver than I think. When you say these things to yourself over a period of time, even at what appears to be the worst time, they take root in your core. And it’s as if the Creator or angels take hold of that anchor in your soul and help pull you through. I have learned if you just try a thing, learn a thing, you can do it. Especially if it’s your calling or your gifts and talents. I want you to know today…

You are stronger than you think or believe. You are smarter and you are braver. Look at all that you have survived and now it is time to thrive. You survive by living your best life, by walking in your destiny with confidence and becoming the beautiful being you were created to be. You are more than a conqueror. The build up is in what you tell yourself in the dark times to get you back to the light. The build up is in what you say and not what you feel at the time…you say it until you feel it and you recall the other times you pulled through to give you strength.

Mood: Strong

Stop. Breathe. Think.

istock_000063242503_medium

Each morning this week, before you walk into work, before you receive your first client, before you decide to talk crazy on social media to somebody, just remember you are not the only one going through some things. Other people that are minding their business are probably going through some things too. So before you spread your bitterness, open your mouth to say something sideways, just think how incredibly strong they must be going through their storm and not making it rain on everyone around them. Blessed are the hurting people who don’t hurt other people.-Nicole Jackson

On Your Rise, Get Set, Go!

The sun travels around the earth giving light to the good, the bad, and the ugly. Some are so entrenched in evil and negativity they hardly recognize the light they are given (mostly because evil loves the night or better put, negative people love to stay in dark thinking). As you make a decision to rise in your life to a higher level, higher way of thinking you will no doubt encounter those that hate your light. They can’t wait until you shut up, sit down, and be quiet. They can’t wait to bring the kill joy to your good news. Note:Darkness is always trying to edge out light. Just know they are no match for shine!!! As you circle the earth you will be giving light on the good, the bad, and the ugly. See it and keep shining. You’re in rotation. On your rise, get set, and go!!!!
