Glow with the Sunshine of the Spirit

Religion and science agree on the power of positive thought.

Make the choice to go positive at every option even the seemingly impossible. Watch the beauty grow inside you. Watch it spread.

Pray for your instructions, your guidance, your encouragement.

Read scripture. See it for yourself.

Meditate. This goes best with closed eyes and deep breathing.

Enjoy.

Warriors of Light get support and affirmation from other troops but they gain dispatchment from the Commander each morning. They report in each evening. This discipline gives them that Sunshine of the Spirit, that glow.

Encouragement, Growth and Spirituality

Each moment of the day your life has impact on the world. If only by inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide you change the environment. Choose to change the ambiance as well. Smile. Offer support and encouragement . Help with the chores. Anticipate the needs of another.

Pray for understanding. Pray for the desire to grow spiritually.

Read scripture to nourish your growth and examine your options.

Meditate. It helps relieve the stress of the day even if you do it before the stress happens.

Warriors of Light know the winds change. They set their tents to resist the blows from all directions. Inside their tents they rest peacefully but not in isolation. They can hear each other snoring.

Putting Others Before Yourself

“Love is a decision to put the welfare of another before that of yourself.”  Choose to care about the troops in your life and the day becomes dance. Each encounter is a place on your dance card. The joy and smiles created lift the spirits and put a spring in the step.

Pray to share your understandings with Him. Watch for His winks during your chores.

Read scripture and learn the players. See the Way.

Meditate and realize (make real) good things in your life.

Warriors of Light know thoughts have power. Build up the people around you with kindness.  Enjoy them as playmates not hostages.

Be Willing to Solve Problems

We are built as problem solvers.

We seem surprised by the problems ! There is no place or time of our life free of problems and stress.

People lock themselves into reasons to be unhappy.

For what ? One eyelash of willingness can become a key to open the heart, the mind, the world, even our health.

Pray and use gratitude to find joy.

Read scripture. It is, in fact,  a report with many of our answers.

Meditate. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Shut out the foolishness.

Warriors of Light train to practice willingness. Progress not perfection leads them “out of the box” for their answers, opportunities, their partners.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

Our thinking is all that can lead us to bondage or keep us there.

Got a bad pattern woven with lies ? Break it by your return to the present.

Afraid you don’t know something ? Be bold enough to ask aloud. Others need the answers too but they stay silent, fearing exposure.

Pray for answers. Watch ! They will come.

Read scripture, learn scripture. Prayers using His Word do not return void.

Meditate. In the middle of your mess, stop. Breathe deeply and gain new perspective.

Warriors of Light know fear as the unwillingness to experience pain. Reflecting on pains already endured, what’s to fear ?

Don’t worry, be happy !

Love and Be Loved and Solve Problems

Be the answer to someone else’s prayers. We are designed to love, be loved and solve problems. God works through other people. Often, He speaks through other people. Allow yourself to be one of those other people. Embrace your position !

Pray for clarity and desire.

Read scripture, the source of the wise old sayings. Get the info first hand.

Warriors of Light are happiest when carrying and sharing the Light. Their tasks are voluntary. Their skills sharpen with practice. Their work is well thought of and enjoyable. What’s not to like ?

Pray for Others to Have the Best

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” The Golden rule. The basis of the Judeo Christian ethic is the foundation of trust, capitalism and prosperity. Enjoy the privilege of living a land which cherishes these values.

Cure resentment by praying for the culprit to have everything you desire for your life. Apply this technique for fourteen days or less. Watch the miracles !

Pray for others to have the best.

Read scripture. Its truths last.

Meditate. Close the eyes. Breathe very deeply. Repeat.

Warriors of Light gain their territory and establish their perimeter. Then, can they relax to enjoy the tales, the warmth and snores of their brothers.

Seeing Things with Amazement and Appreciation

There is a race, a course, set before us. We know much about surviving the adventure. Today, pull from your heart the awe of a child. See things with amazement and appreciation. See the sky paint her pictures. Watch the trees dance in the wind. Take the call from a friend, your playmate. Watch your heart flutter with new love. Almost everything seems worth sharing.

Pray. Tell Him too, your fears and suspicions. Watch them lift.

Read scripture. Put a verse or two in your pocket. It is your toolbox.

Meditate. Be still and know. What seems impossible is not.

Warriors of Light know nothing is impossible with Him at your side. “God could and would if He were sought.” It does not say found.

One eyelash of willingness becomes a key to let in the sunshine of The Spirit.

The Good That Lies Within

“Grind us down. Find our wheat and chaff. A friend will sift gently, finding the good. With a breath of kindness, the rest, he will blow away.”

Pray to see the goodness of every moment. It is in there !

Read scripture to gain discernment and faith. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing from the Word.”

Meditate. Really. Stop and breathe deeply with the eyes closed. Take a load off.

Warriors of Light know life is a mixed bag. One usually has to enter the barber shop to actually get a haircut.
