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.
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!
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.
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.
“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.
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.” 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.
