Find the Power in Gratitude

If you have strengths such as love, kindness, hope, creativity and 20 other positive powerhouses, you will still be missing the single best predictor of good relationships and emotional well being as reported in the Scientific American journal….that being GRATITUDE.  We did not create ourselves, or our world. We did not get where we are today all alone on our own. So living in gratitude reveals our truth. It’s living honestly giving credit where credit is due. “Gratitude is a way of seeing that alters our gaze.”– Robert A. Emmons Living in gratitude means that we take nothing for granted. Life owes us nothing as we acknowledge all good that we have has been given. Our good gifts have been given to us on loan one day at a time by a very generous God. We haven’t earned them. They’re not owed to us. We have no title to them. They are simply gifts, given not because of our goodness but because God is a father who wants the best for his children. So how can we not be grateful? How can we stop gratitude from welling up inside us? We must give thanks. Our heart insists on it. How do we thank a father who already has everything? Pretty words won’t do it and we can’t send flowers! All we have are his gifts, and that’s our clue. The only thanks that God really wants is that we use our gifts well, and share them with one another as generously as God shared them with us. Thankfulness is ever so much more than just words. It’s a whole way of living,... read more

Ring For Service

Wouldn’t it be nice to just ring the bell to request anything that would satisfy our every whim? We’d have no worries, no pain, no sorrows, and anything to make our lives easier, more pleasant and more enjoyable. Buzz….buzzz In actuality we have something, Someone, much better. We don’t even have to push a buzzer to be cared for. God is at our beck and call to hear, responding with an answer to our every prayer. He hears every whimper from our hearts. He is aware of each thought tucked away in our brains. He celebrates every success with us and he is there to wipe away every tear falling from our eyes. The Lord makes sure we have everything we need for our earthly journey to fulfill our “mission”, our reason for being here. God would not commission us to this life without equipping us for the onslaught! When we need courage, faith, peace of mind, patience, tolerance, acceptance, honesty and love….ASK HIM….RING… And the Lord will provide us with what we need when we need it. Never fret because your buzzing seems to go unanswered. God works on DST (Divine Standard Time) while we are glued to our earthly clocks. God has our front and backsides covered as we walk with him in an untimely fashion. God’s time is not our time.  God loves us so much that he will withhold absolutely nothing from us. No matter what, God will always be there for us, with ALL his love and power, comfort and grace. Have faith! There ARE no limits to God’s commitment to us, none at... read more

Find Your Brave

After being “held up” by Krazy Ani, on the Heber Train ride through the Provo Canyon, this guitar -strumming-train-robber entertained us.   She amused us with her “train songs” but it was her original song that spoke to me. We listened to her new song, “My Brave”, as we chugged along. As her musical story unfolded, it resonated with us all. The lyrics, “Braver than I thought I was” and, “Meet the brave within,” melodiously reminded us of how life brings situations that call forth our fortitude and strength within. Sometimes to our own surprise! Fear, anxiety, anger, and doubt play far too large a role in all of our lives, and sometimes they kill us. But finding our buried “Brave” summons our strength from our Divine nature. Sometimes we can’t do it on our own, but have to discover the God, our power within. We are more than we think we are. Psalm 91 is the antidote to the poison of our unhealthy fears, angers, and doubts. God is reassuring us that his has sent his angels to keep us safe in all situations, even when they seem insurmountable.  “Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Psalm 91 resounds as a psalm of protection. (And who doesn’t need that?) People of the Old Testament invoked this prayer during hardship. (And who is free of that?) So as we journey through this school called Life, let us remember that our trials and hardships... read more
