The Path After the Pain

Suddenly your life is changed due to loss of a loved one, a pet, a job, or a relative needing care. Oh my, your rhythm is changed and open to fear or resentment unless you are careful. Focus on being a favored creation of the Creator. Your path is lit and an adventure lies before you. The pain will pass.

Pray. Talk to your Friend that never changes and never passes.

Read scripture. You will always find something new in something old.

Meditate. This means take time to breathe deeply and relax. It will improve anything.

Warriors of Light know their Commander never sets them into a battle that is too hard, even if it seems like it. The experience will fortify them to help others.

Let’s Open Our Eyes and Enjoy the Day

“Don’t come to the feast table of life and starve to death.” The opportunities to love and grow and learn are here before us. Let’s open our eyes and enjoy the day.

This may require dropping yesterday’s goals and pains. It may require a fresh perspective.

Pray for direction.

Read scripture to renew your mind.

Meditate and soak in relaxation.

Breathe deeply.

Warriors of Light know that each day’s is new. The burdens of yesterday are not shackled to us.

We can leave them to Him.

Happiness lies in serving others.

We Easily Get Misdirected

We are an interesting lot. Designed for success and love we easily get misdirected and trouble arrives. The package of pain or separation does not have to be received. We are protected if we but accept that position. All things, even wrong decisions can work to our benefit if coated with Trust in our thoughts, words and actions.

Pray for clarity and direction, then expect it.

Read scripture and see that our problems are not new.

Meditate. Relax. All things work for the betterment of those looking up.

Warriors of Light know the way out is Up.  No matter the depth of the issue or the layers of time on its back, looking up best allows the Sunlight of the Spirit to fill and heal the pockets of doubt.

Finding Opportunities to be Positive

Let the positives soak into your life ! Positives wait in every moment, every event, even amongst the pain.

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 !

Help is as close as looking up

Pain is heavy, sometimes overwhelming. We imagine it will last forever.

“Suffering is the most underused resource on the planet.”

“A problem shared is a problem cut in half.”

Help is as close as looking up.

It does not last forever and we learn, change and grow. We become stronger people who know how to make it through tough times.

We learn how to ask for help and how to receive it.

Pray. Become “a part of ” not “apart from.”

Read scripture and become familiar with your options.

Meditate. Silence the worry committee and breathe.

Warriors of Light know to be who they are. They look best and fit best in their own armor.

Feast on the Goodness in Life

Feast on the goodness in life !

Even the pain and heartache are for the purpose of making the desirable fruit shine.

Feast on your labor and relish your ability to focus, to perform.

Feast on the variety of people, how they make you smile !

Laugh at yourself ! Laugh with God ! He knows you !

Pray to enjoy and to cheer with appreciation!

Read Psalms this week ! Find the treasures and the reassurance.

Warriors of Light know the battle is in the mind. Their dance diminishes the power of the adversary !

Choose Well

Falling hurts. Bruises touch bones and egos. The pain tells us it will last forever.

“He is our very present help in time of trouble.”

He can “make our feet like deer’s feet.” He can “allow us to stand on high places.”

Trust “renews our strength to fly like an eagle.”

Ours is the choice.

Pray to choose well and wellness.

Read scripture to taste the options.

Meditate on incorporation of His promises in our life.

Warriors of Light make real the promises.

“God is my rock. My shield in whom I take refuge.”

Love and Loss and What’s Inside

Why does it hurt to lose them, when we know they have arrived where they belong ? The pain is real. It comes in waves, then abates and comes again.

Loving others allows us to see the love inside ourselves more clearly. It does not leave with them. Embrace the character that has been built. Feel its presence.

Pray to offer loved ones directions not instructions.

Read scripture and devotionals. Not everything is about us.

Meditate. Stop and appreciate the members of your team.

Warriors of Light see suffering as a vehicle of release. They help others change oil and keep the vehicle fueled with faith.
