Did you Pray Today

Praying as part of your everyday regimen. Did you pray today, why not? If you did good for you.

Why is praying daily so important?

  1. Great way to stay in faith.
  2. Take a moment to believe for what you want from your life.
  3. Keeps you in communication with God. Always a good thing!
  4. Being humble before God.
  5. Embracing the feelings of prayers being answered, showing gratitude.

Just a few in a huge list of reasons that prayer can and should be a part of your everyday life.

self help, love, faith

Letting God know you’re there as it were. I take what I call prayer walks in the morning times to simply talk to God. Funny note if people see me walking they probably think I forgot to take my medication, talking to myself.

God, knows when I am talking to him from my heart. It helps me start my day. Focused on what is important. Then I simply let God handle it. Not always easy for me, sometimes I feel like he needs my help. Not so much!

If you let life unfold before you staying in faith, the blessings are immeasurable. For times when you think if you don’t jump in everything will come to an end. DON’T! Stay in faith even when you don’t see anything but a disaster. Let it play out, let God know you are grateful that he has blessed you with the answer, Even when you can’t see it yet.

This is why you pray. Stay in faith, be grateful for the answered prayer before it manifests and don’t beg. You don’t have to beg God for anything. For example, someone close to you gets horrible health news. Don’t beg God to save them, thank God that he did save them. Pray for healing and restoration. Just don’t beg for it, you don’t have to beg!

You also don’t have to promise God; “If you just get me through this I will never ____.”

Make prayer a part of your everyday life. If you have kids pray with them. Married, pray with your spouse. Most importantly make sure you and God stay connected.

God bless!

Beginners Guide to Meditation

Meditation is a fantastic way to help still your mind. Allowing you to relax in ways I am confident you never have before. Meditating also will enable you to visualize what your heart desires. Getting you into a state of bliss.

The great news is this is not hard at all to do or practice. The steps to get started are easy to learn.

prayer, spiritual, visualize

Let’s get started with what you need before you begin to meditate:

  1. Using meditation music helps a lot. If you have headphones for your smartphone, this works great. Headphones help drown out ambient noise that can distract your concentration. The music will help you focus your mind.
  2. Have a place you can either sit in a comfortable pillow, chair or lay down (you don’t want to fall asleep) comfortable but not so that you sleep. We want to be awake but entirely pleasant.
  3. If possible turn off cell phone notifications. It’s essential to not break your concentration.
  4. The most important thing before you begin is that you’re comfortable. Comfy clothes, bare feet, comfortable temperature, and NO distractions.
  5. Think about what you would like to focus on during your meditation practice. Try to think only about one thing, for example, pick one; relaxation, happiness, let go of stress. If you have something, then use it.
  6. Remember there is a reason its called a practice! Over time you will get excellent.
  7. There is no real time limit. What I teach is continue for 5 minutes and continue until you feel like you have finished. Find the bliss enjoy it and leave your meditation practice on a peak note.

Now that you have the stuff you need where to begin:

  1. Get into a comfortable position. It’s not a bad idea to stretch for a moment just loosen up your body, nothing fancy just stretch.
  2. Turn on the music and begin to relax.
  3. Take a few deep cleansing breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. Fill your lungs with happiness and joy, exhale all the dark.
  4. As you finish the cleansing breaths, begin to focus on your breathing. Nice lung filling breaths in through the nose out through the mouth. No strains in breathing just nice and smooth. Filling your body with Clean healing oxygen and exhaling dark black stress, tension, and so on.
  5. Continue to breath and let your body completely relax. Remove any thought from your head, all you want to concentrate on is in with the good and out with the bad. Relax!
  6. As you feel yourself relaxing enjoy the moment, be present in that moment. (A side note here, if you’re having trouble, can’t relax or your head is running ninety to nothing, be patient. This may take a couple of sessions to master).
  7. Look through your mind’s eye and see yourself happy, stress-free, tension free, in a place that makes you happy. Feel the emotions, be grateful in this moment.
  8. Rinse and Repeat! Practice daily.

The power of meditation can only be experienced. Whatever, preconceived notion you might have. Have an open heart and give it a try.

Here is a little from the book:

Where to Begin

Coming to a point in life where the outcome thus far is a disaster. If this is you, welcome. I welcome you to the beginning of your new life. Just reading this won’t bring change about. If you want this, it’s going to take some work.

Before we begin. The importance of this one thing cannot be overstated Patience!

 “Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”—Joyce Meyer

Without patience to allow change to occur you will stifle progress. My mother always told me this “it took you fifty years to break your life, give yourself time to change.” She was totally right as most moms are.

Where failure befalls most is the lack of patience to allow change to occur. We live in the “I want it right now society.” Get that out of your head right now. This is where I stumbled hard. Not allowing the universe to set a new course for my life.

Questions:

I’m a Cannonball, What?

I was trying to figure out a metaphor about life and God. How does God look at my life in some terms that I can say “I get it.”

This cannon is not designed to hurt anyone, but it will blast through the enemy, self-doubt and related metaphors of this article.

God, metaphor, prayer

If I am this cannonball that is getting stuffed inside a cannon. So God puts the gunpowder in (meaning knowledge to live a beautiful, prosperous life). Then he rolls me down the barrel of the cannon. Goes around the back and I roll out the end of the cannon barrel back on the ground (not staying in faith).

God moves back around lifts me up and rolls me back into the barrel. This time he takes the plunger and really gives me a whack. Bam, Bam, Bam, (trials & tribulations) he keeps pounding me into the barrel.

I roll out again!

Stubborn I keep rolling out of the barrel back on the ground. Not following the purpose of a cannonball (losing faith). I am supposed to be shot out of the cannon (run through life happy joyous and free, my meaning).

Back on the ground God patiently goes back to the front of the cannon grabs me and puts me back in the barrel. Again using the plunger, he pushes me back towards my purpose. Stubbornly I roll myself back out of the end of the cannon to the ground yet again.

Instead of embracing my life purpose, I keep rolling myself away. I’m scared to be shot into my future, my destiny. I don’t know what will happen, I’m afraid, so I keep rolling myself out. Not staying in faith!

So time and time again God puts me back.

Finally!

God reveals to me that he keeps adding powder, pushing me down the barrel (moving me through my life) so that he can go around to light the fuse. God cannot burn the fuse to Blast you through all the naysayers, all your heartache, all your sorrow, all your sacrifices, so FAR beyond what you ever dreamed could ever occur.

If you don’t let God light your fuse. How will you ever know how far past your dreams can blasting out of God’s cannon help you go. Maybe, it’s time to let God light the fuse!!!
