I can’t tell you how many times I have strayed away from my dedicated time with God because of my own desire to spend my time more productively doing the things I feel I must do. Yet, every time I come back to that quiet place talking with God and being present with Him, I am always amazed. It’s as if He knows, and He does, exactly where I leave off and when I will pick back up again!
This morning was one of those days. It is my desire to start my day with God because I know that is the best way to stay intuned with Him, His desires, and His Will for my life. Then, it is the evil one who tempts me into wondering what’s happening on Facebook or who responded to my messages, etc. Once I give in to the distraction, it just spirals into my day and God is left waiting for me to return. I always return in the evening in prayer, but had I started my day with Him instead, the result would have been so much greater!
You see, as we grow in our desire to please Him above all else, we gain strength to resist these distractions. It is a daily battle, but if we stick with God, we can’t go wrong – for God is the way! For me, it’s as if He answers my prayers almost immediately at times. I always give Him the praise and express my gratitude towards Him because without Him it would not be possible! I give Him thanks first, and then I let Him know what it is I need. I always ask Him to bring the right people into my life to help me do His Will!
If you are lucky enough to know in your heart what His Will is for you, then you are truly blessed. He has a plan for all of us and He gave each of us a Gift that we are capable of blessing so many with. For me, every since I was a young child, He placed a dream in my heart to be an Author. I never thought that would happen in a million years, but He had a plan. You’ve heard though that it will happen in His Timing, that is so true. I had tried earlier to attempt writing a book, but nothing ever happened. His plan for me was to write spiritual inspirational stories and that plan took time. It took Him putting me into situations where I could learn what I needed to learn before I was actually ready. He placed certain people in my path that would help me. He led me in the right direction and reguided my steps when I took the wrong path. Nothing will stop His Plan, though it may take you much longer to get there when you are not listening and following His lead.
Now that I know this, when I pray, He answers me. I, though, have to be open and patient to recognizing His words, His plan, and His timing. I do this in knowing and believing in Him and Him alone! For His Spirit is always with me, and He can do amazing things! He has blessed me in so many ways and I know that the best is yet to come! He gave me a second chance at life. He allowed me to heal inside and out after a heart attack last year. He has blessed me with my second book, “Break Down Your Walls: Be the Person God Created…Be a Better YOU!” available now on Amazon. Where I share with you everything I learned and wish I had known before my heart attack. I learned how to deal with my stress, which is what caused my heart attack. Now, through my writing, I am able to help so many others who are struggling as well.
Now, He is working for me to put me in a situation where I can begin to grow my following in a manner that will allow me to dedicate more and more of my time on His Will. I have found that His Will for me is inspiring others to become a better person, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The current path He is leading me on is the natural path of wellness in living an abundant life of overall wellness by spreading the love of essential oils. Essential Oils was God’s Gift to us from day one! They date back to before Genesis in the Bible and are mentioned throughout the Bible as being the cure to many ailments. I have found that Young Living Essential Oils is the only company that I would trust when it comes to 100% Thereapeutic Grade Oils because they are the only company with the Seed-to-Seal promise guaranteeing their authenticity through rigorous testing methods and processes to ensure nothing but the absolute best quality. The oils and products that Young Living offers support every system in our body and aid in supporting our overall wellness, emotions, balancing our spiritually through meditation and aromatherapy. There are three ways you can use the essential oils: topically, aromatically, and ingesting by using the vitality oils that you can put in your water, use in cooking, or take internally with a vegetable capsule as a dietary supplement.
