He Can Still the Waves

Gratitude and Praise are tools not just results. Spiritual tools which can be employed more forceful than a raging river. Free and always available, Gratitude can alter relationships, change finances, improve health.

Pray, no matter how long it has been or how deep you are in, He awaits your call.

Read scripture. It was written for you, saved until you were ready.

Meditate in any way that suits you. It will grease your gears.

Warriors of Light know how to surf through life. They paddle hard to gain position being tossed by the power of swells. They are tired but ready. Feeling the lift, the shoulder of the wave, they stand. Their toes hold and their weight shifts to balance, to ride then cut an angle immersed in thrill as they just catch the curl or shoot the barrel.

Warriors encourage others to dive into the waves of life and paddle beside them knowing He can still the waves.

He Speaks to Your Heart When the Pages are Open

Actions make the difference. Good ideas and new understanding find value only with actions, oft repeated and oft called new habits, also called follow through. These are gifts from the Director even when He works without acknowledgement.

Pray and watch Acknowledgement (also called Praise) multiply the gifts.

Read scripture. He speaks from the pages and in your heart when the pages are open.

Meditate. Relax with deep breathing. Now gratefully listen.

Warriors of Light know their concern is only for the next step. If that honors Him and is in the right direction they walk an adventurous path to Life and Peace.

Just A Few Words May Be The Ones You Needed to Hear

Praise and Thanksgiving have Power. To engage these tools when the enemies in our mind shout “no way !” is a sacrifice. The sacrifice of Praise greases tight spots and swings The Force to our side.

Pray in a continuous conversation with Him who sees, listens and cares.

Read scripture. Just a few words may be the ones you needed to hear.

Meditate to move strength  and perspective from your mind to your heart.

Warriors of Light wear the belt and carry the sword of Truth. Their shields of Faith quench those “fiery darts”  of doubt and fear. The twinkle in their eyes and the warmth of their smiles assure victory before the battles have begun. They invite others to make life an adventure of Trust.

Find a Place to Rest and Understand the Answers

Freedom not restriction is really found within the Light. There lies visibility, direction and Him to hold our  hand. Strength to endure, places to rest, fellowship with those we allow to help are available as soon as we stop directing and start listening.

Pray to understand the answer to our prayers.

Read scripture. Tuck a few lines into memory to feed the heart.

Meditate. Enjoy breathing in His company.

Warriors of Light know to stay in the Light. They use Praise and Gratitude to bolster their shields of Faith. Many strive because they fear finding themselves in hell. Most Warriors have already been through hell and they refuse to go back!

To Keep Joy, Give it Away

Choose unselfishly and you will gain more than the biggest piece of the pie. Sharing makes things bigger and they taste better.

Let them move in front of you and watch them smile with thanks. Make room for them in traffic and they will smile with a wave. Make it your job to admire their glasses or shoes. Pray for or with them and watch your earth spin with delight.

Pray with Thanksgiving. Offer Praise too.

Read scripture. Seems tedious but becomes an adventure.

Meditate. Breathe deeply and quietly celebrate your life.

Warriors of Light find themselves amused. To win, we surrender, to gain, we let go and finally to keep our Joy we give it away.

Sharing the Treasures Within Us

Every day holds treasures. Every person holds treasures. With a smile they can be shared. Sharing brings joy for the giver and the receiver. So, what’s to lose ?

Pray for the perspective to see the treasures.

Read scripture to find wisdom and discernment.

Meditate. Breathe in and relish the moment.

Warriors of Light lead by example. Using shields of Faith they quench fiery darts. Using Praise and Gratitude as pitons they refuse the slide of self pity.

Pray to See the Positive Side

“Problems are opportunities !” We are given the chance to behave well while enduring. This makes us part of the solution. Made easier by the employment of gratitude and Praise, be the encouraging narrator instead of the victim.

We have the choice !

Pray to see the positive side.

Read scripture and collect phrases to use as staffs and spears.

Meditate. Breathe deeply and slowly more than once.

Warriors of Light know the battle to be already won. The skirmishes we encounter, the enemies we face, the losses we suffer are our creations. Seeing our part softens the blows. Forgiveness is salve to the wounds.

Recognizing Opportunities

There is so much to look forward to ! We can have everything we want simply by wanting everything we have ! Gratitude is a powerful force. Combined with humility and propelled by Praise it will change your attitude and present opportunities.

Pray to recognize favor and opportunities.

Read His Word, scripture. Memorize it and taste the change in your relationships.

Meditate on one of the Psalms.

Warriors of Light know that spiritual tools can shape their world. When faced with mountains they use Praise and Thanksgiving as pitons to climb over them.

Smile and the World Smiles with You

“Smile and the world smiles with you.” Stop studying everything and smile !

Just moving the muscles for a smile will make you happier.

Your smile invites kindnesses.

Just can’t get one on your face ?

Give something you like to someone who can use it ! That makes them smile and smiles are contagious.

Pray to get your mind off yourself. Talk to God like He is the one you trust the most.

Read scripture. It reminds us that we are not the center of the universe.

Meditate. Find your spot to sit quietly. Sit quietly. Inhale deeply. Exhale slowly. Repeat.

Warriors of Light wear a smile into the battle. They enjoy using their weapons of Praise and Thanksgiving. They know their power.

Warriors are ever thankful for opportunities to use their Faith and Trust.

Warriors can turn the enemy’s weapons against him by receiving the jousts with a forgiving smile.
