This Journey

For as long as I have been journaling & blogging, I have called my life a Journey. I haven’t defined it as a bad journey, but just as a Journey. We actually never know what our journey will hold for us, we can make plans, mark down dates to get things done, but our Journey is never fully our own. We will have visitors that join us on our journey, but ultimately we have to figure out what the visitors mean for us and our journey.

 

Who Am I Becoming?

Do you ever take time to look back at where you were, and wonder Who Am I Becoming? What has become of me? Where am I going?

There was a vision, intention & plan to your purpose when you were born. Some may still be figuring out just what their plan is on this earth. My advice is pay attention when people talk to you. Sometimes there are angels among us, that inspire, guide and help you along the journey.

You may not be where you want to be but, Thank God you are not where you were.

Growth & change are a big part of becoming who we are destined to be. Don’t be afraid of the changes. He is stretching us. Just like seeds need sunlight & water to grown, that is what we get when God places certain people on our path.

The Lord said be you for me, don’t try to be someone you are not.

The Mind Wonders

I often wonder about people that pass away… When they open their eyes and see God, do they ask why am I here already?

Does He explain to them that it was just time for them to come home? Does He say well done?

My mind often wonders about the really great people that I run across. I always assume & believe that they were Angels, sent here to show me something for a certain time frame. Then they are called home, because their job is done, their mission is complete.

Feelings

On any given day, we may feel good or bad, happy or sad, excited or discouraged, and a thousand other things. Although feelings can be very strong and demanding, we do not have to let them rule our lives.

Learn to manage your emotions rather than allowing them to manage us.

We have free will and can make decisions that are not based on feelings. Make right choices regardless of how we feel.

Enjoy the process

Do you see the effort needed to achieve success as a struggle or as a pleasure? If you consider it a struggle, you’ll fight it every step of the way and will probably not ever reach the goals you’ve set. Those who consistently achieve their goals are positively committed not only to the end results, but also to the process of attaining them.

No one does their best when doing something that is distasteful or unpleasant. And yet, there are certain specific actions necessary for success. Achievers learn to redefine their likes and dislikes. Those who accomplish much have found a way to actually enjoy the effort and discipline necessary to reach their goals.

To effectively reach your goals, you must either set those goals in accordance with your likes and dislikes, or you must align your likes and dislikes so that they compel you toward your goals. The choice is yours. The power is yours. You can enjoy whatever you decide to enjoy. Just imagine what astounding things you can accomplish when you truly decide to enjoy the process.

Stop & Think of How Blessed You Are

You ever stop & think about how blessed you really are? How you made it thru? How you made it over? How you overcame that which you thought you couldn’t overcome?

If not, take the time and just do it. Think about what you were brought thru. Where you used to be. How you changed. How differently your light shines? How the Son shines on you everyday, no matter what you feel.

It always amazes me, how quickly people forget just how truly Blessed You Are!
