Preparing for holidays,
recovering from holidays … it can be exhausting. We make it so hard … til we take the time to make is so simple:
“Jesus replied, ‘This is the work of God, that you believe in the One He sent.”
Really? Can you get any simpler than that? Work=believe.
To take yourself from misery to comfort or hope is a miracle, and I know you know what I mean. As though launching a rocket or discovering a waterfall in the desert. Perspective is a game-changer, and perception is reality. When you choose to make one tiny, sacred choice … one … a veil of comfort flows through your heart, through your veins, becomes extra oxygen to your brain cells. One thought. Believe.
Let your worn out old chair be the humming place, as sacred as the Mount of Olives … how lovely is Your dwelling place …
And, when those self-appointed judges of the mighty “Daily-To-Do-List” call and ask, “what did you do today?”
Answer with a pure, honest voice: “I changed a thought today”.
Believe me, I know the “acceptable” answers.
Whisper out anyway.
With holy reverence.
Because, when we choose to change a thought, God Almighty changes the neuroplasticity of brain cells and opens up a thousand new opportunities in your life.
Others are looking to hear that you’ve cleaned the garage pantry and hauled out five full bags of trash. Or maybe made a million dollars on the stock market or found a cure for cancer.
It may seem far more productive to them that you be organizing your make up drawer. Nuts and bolts.
To your Creator, well, He is far more concerned with the organization of the drive of your heart. One changed thought. Believe.
Prepare your thoughts.
