Why Change?

You ask, “Why should I change? Everything is fine.”

But the reality is, ‘everything’ is not fine.

Having to face the realities of conflict, chaos, confusion, jealousy, bitterness, resentment & depression is a painful thing …without even considering all those other feelings!

I remember sitting on the couch in my parents’ living-room, with tears rolling down my face, my heart racing, my ears burning, and that anxious desire to jump up and run out of the door!

But I needed them to understand me! And, what’s more, they needed me to understand them.

It was urgent enough for me to stay and work it out, so that I could sleep better, laugh at jokes again, and to free myself from the cage of anger where I had lived for years!

Now, years later, I realize that the lessons I learned from my parents are invaluable to my success! I am actually living the life of my dreams! I’m happy, not that I don’t have problems, aches & pains. But I have succeeded at what I wanted to accomplish, with the motivation to experience more and new, and create and re-create…That’s where I live everyday!

Now I realize that change is often a good thing, because it leads to growth!

Maybe this is why you should change!

When we accept the need to make a change, we open the window to possibilities beyond what we know.

Why change? It could be that you will actually feel a ‘rush’ of ‘new air’ as you inhale a refreshing renewal of spirit!

Sound familiar?

No doubt, this is a stressful time for all of us. If you’re like most families with small children, the challenge of “staying home” is a major one!

  • For one thing, today, it’s raining and windy. So the children need to stay inside.
  • For another thing, our apartment is small, the rooms seem to have gotten smaller,
  • And the children’s playtime seems to have gotten louder!

If you’re like me, you’re seeking refuge from so-much stress, right about now!

So, what to do? Get angry? Cry? Scream? May I make a suggestion?

I disappear into the bathroom with my smartphone, log onto a shopping website and fantasize about a beautiful, glowing blue Chakra strand bracelet on my arm, while I’m sitting at my favorite Café, drinking my favorite drink…with my favorite friends!

Crystals help me go deep inside my soul & remember to be grateful for those precious memories, that make me smile, as the tension fades and a dazzling light shines behind my closed-eyes, & I begin to heal from within.

Lucky for me, I actually have a Lapis Lazuli crystal sitting on the bathroom window-ledge, I turn-on the water & by the way, the sound of running water sounds “mighty” soothing!

Inhale, exhale, relax. Open your eyes, come out of your loneliness, & laugh with the children!

Wait & Be Courageous. (As Commanded)

Early church tradition affirms that apostle Peter was the author of this letter, First Peter.

Indeed, the purpose of this letter was not to provide a record of the life of Christ, but instead, Peter was encouraging Christians with the comforting spiritual realities behind the persecution they faced.

Peter wanted to emphasize — JESUS, THE OVERSEER & CHIEF SHEPHERD — of all Christians, and when He appears, those who have a relationship with Him will, also, be glorified.

7 casting all your care [anxiety] upon him, because he [“Chief Shepherd”]

cares for you. https://youtu.be/qkOFKPJQ6a8

13  Peace to you all, who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

I encourage you —

…to memorize ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6‬-7.

“In nothing be anxious;

but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

That word…Entreat, appeal, beg, petition, beseech, plead, invocation, request, solicit, urge, pray!!

And the peace of God, [there’s nothing like it; you can’t buy it!]

which passeth all understanding,

• shall guard ..shall keep…

• … your hearts (Yes, your heart hurts, but only for a while),

•  and your mind & your thoughts, (You’re preoccupied with the heartache, but only for awhile),

enjoying life…smiling and sharing more love…in Christ Jesus.”

We Can Heal Our World. Here’s How!

Quote:

“Our world is a joint creation. We have the power…[and we, each, have a profound affect] on those around us!”

From, “Healing Our World” by Mary Ruwart

When we try to control others, we ourselves, become the Controlled.

Like a stone thrown into a quiet pond, our actions and reactions have a rippling affect …outward…affecting our world.

One action towards our neighbor, ripples outward into the community, affecting our “world.”
