I open myself to the unknown future in full trust and I release the past with gratitude for how it has blessed my path with joy, difficulty and knowledge.
I am blessed to be on the Board of Directors for the Susquehanna Habitat for Humanity. We meet once a month and I don’t think I have ever been a part of an organization that makes such a difference in the lives of people OR where I haven’t cried at EVERY Board meeting (happy tears)!
Last night, we had the pleasure of hearing about a program Habitat offers called “I’m Still Standing.” This program helps individuals who have found themselves lost in life and in the local detention center and helps them “rebuild, restore and refurbish” their lives…just like we do to our houses…by teaching them skills then involving them in construction projects we have going on through Habitat. We had the pleasure of hearing from two young ladies in the program last night, one who is 20 years old and one who is 31 years old. As they both spoke about the amazing things this program has done to turn around their lives I could not help notice the similarities to what they said and what we have been talking about in this blog all week.
These ladies, who both stated that coming into the program they (as they said), “needed a lot of work…just like the houses they work on,” both were able to TAKE ACTION in a different direction in their lives because they changed WHAT THEY BELIEVED ABOUT THEMSELVES! Lawana Perkins, the amazing woman who is responsible for this program, said it perfectly; “The only 2 things we have control over in this life are our MIND and our MOUTH!” In order to change your life in a positive direction and see sustainable change, the action needs to start from INSIDE OF YOU! Your thoughts, your beliefs, your choices…they all need to be in alignment. Once your head and your heart are in line with who you truly are there is no stopping you. Fear dissipates, courage rises. Then add into the equation how who you and your new choices are affecting others, your community and the world…then you are on to something!
We are all here on this planet TOGETHER! What I do AND THINK affects you and what you do and think affects me. There is no way around it. As we move into this new age of consciousness (which is all about ONENESS and COMMUNITY) we will begin to see that the old outdated ways of manipulation, self-serving activities and selfish motives fade away…they will no longer work in this “new system.” The things that will last will be those things that benefit the WHOLE.
If in this moment, you KNEW God had your back (and so did everyone around you) and you KNEW there was no such thing as mistakes and failure…what would you do????
Noodle that question over the weekend and then take your first step. It is a step worth taking AND we are all waiting for you! 😉
There is only one life. That life is God. That life is perfect . That life is my life NOW. Because this one life is perfect and complete, I know that everything that contradicts that life is cast out and eliminated right now!
There is nothing in me that can deny that perfect life.
I identify my life, as it is divinely aligned with God,
with right action that flows in and through every situation.
I am blessed with benefits from joy, peace, harmony, beauty, and abundance.
As I bear witness to the power of good, that power blesses everything and every person that comes in contact with this life.
I accept the perfection of this life with all the vitality of the universe as it is. . . . . . . right now, and so it is.
Stepping into the unknown future as we speak,
