Inspiration

I had no idea what I was going to post or if I was going to post; until I came across the following. It says so much and is filled with so much hope and inspiration that I would have been remiss in not sharing it.

Enjoy!

Waves of now
The problems may be great, yet your ability to successfully deal with them is greater. Each disappointment can be painful, and yet through that pain you are compelled to grow stronger and more capable.
Life goes on, and each moment brings new positive possibilities. You live, you learn, you experience, and through it all you become more fully alive than ever.

You have carried with you to this moment all the joy and beauty you've ever known. Now you are in a position to discover and to fulfill even more.

Seek not to fight against what is. For within what is, the very real opportunity exists for precisely what you wish to be.

In whatever may come your way, you can find the energy and substance to bring your own dreams to life. Run eagerly to greet each moment, for in each moment is the opportunity to fully live.

Life's sparkling treasure rolls in on endless waves of now. Appreciate the depth and the vastness of that treasure, and it is yours.

-- Ralph Marston

You know Blu, this reminds me of Prov 66:10-12. We are often tried by fire, but the trial is for our benefit, our strenghthening and our purification. We come out on the other side of things better for having gone through them. It is comforting to know that it is God who is the silversmith and that He does what He does for our benefit.

What a great post. I needed to see this. When you're going through I swear it feels like things will NEVER get better but the GOD shows up and shows out and you're all the better for it!!!

Sorry, but this left me somewhat cold, particularly the line about not fighting what is. It's only fighting what is that we are able to challenge and change anything. The what is a dam and until we break down that dam the waves won't came breaking through.

The normal me would read this and think it's great. However, due to some recent events, you know my thoughts on how if it's not in His plan, it's not gonna happen no matter how bad you want it and vice versa.

Love it! I need inspiration this morning; so glad I came over here, sis.

I left you a comment on your last post about the deadbeat fathers/mothers situation. Didn't I tell you you were the bomb?
