In Tune With Change!

In Tune With Change!

You can be in tune with change, dear friend, for there is a divine plan of good at work within change! No matter what you are facing in life, remind yourself: I am in harmony with life and in tune with change.

Begin to give yourself credit for having already moved through many changes. Remind yourself that you've already overcome many obstacles in your life and found the stamina, strength, and ability you've needed. You've learned to let go when you thought you couldn't. You’ve found that there are those who are ready to support and love you. You've continued to increase your faith. You've already been through thousands of changes and—whether you are aware of it or not—you've been enriched and blessed.

Everyone Deserves a Second Chance

Even now I remember how I felt as a sad and confused little girl at age six. My mother and father had divorced. The father I adored was no longer in my life. My mother was distraught, continually wringing her hands and crying, not knowing how she could raise my three brothers and me on her own.

I missed my dad. Every time I heard the rumblings of a truck on the road outside the country school where I attended first grade, I would run to the window and wave, hoping it was my dad. I would always come away feeling brokenhearted because it wasn’t him. He had abandoned my family and me.

Saying Yes to Change: The Anatomy of Spiritual Transformation

Saying Yes to Change: The Anatomy of Spiritual Transformation

Reprinted from Daily Word®

Many people are fearful of change, both the expected and unexpected they need to experience in order to live life with greater freedom and happiness. Like the acorn that has to die in order to be reborn as an oak tree, we are all in the midst of being transformed. With that transformation, we can become more compassionate, caring people who offer our unique gifts in the service of a larger whole. Change offers us the possibility of growing beyond our perceived limitations to the fullness of our divine potential.

Make a Joyful Noise

Make a Joyful Noise

“When you feel good you sing, either audibly or silently. … Nearly anyone can sing a little song. It is a marvelous health restorer. Singing restores harmony to tense nerves. Its vibrations stir them into action, thus making it possible for the ever-waiting healing Spirit to get in.”

—Charles Fillmore

 

The old adage “music soothes the savage breast” is a testament to the notes, lyrics, melodies, and rhythms that can transform lives. Music promotes healing. It lifts moods. It comforts. It is spirit in song. It moves.

Personal Transformation

Whenever change occurs in your life, whether you initiate the change or it is imposed on you by circumstances, the best place to start is by turning within and opening your heart to God in prayer.

As you center yourself in prayer, you become more receptive to the "still small voice" of God that offers guidance and fills you with the strength, courage, and confidence to meet any challenge. Prayer helps you tap into the wisdom of God, a source of limitless knowledge and insight. Allow your prayer time to offer a fresh perspective on all that is before you.

How to Turn Your Life Around

If you are not happy with the things that are repeatedly happening in your life, or with the direction in which you seem to be moving, you can turn it around. But first you must understand that it is your life, that you live in a world of your own thoughts, and that you can change your life by altering your thoughts whenever you really want to do so. This is not to say it is easy, but it is possible.

Change

Change

I have resisted change with all my will,
Cried out to life, “Pass by and leave me still.”

But I have found as I have trudged time's track
That all my wishing will not hold life back.

All finite things must go their finite way;
I cannot bid the merest moment, “Stay.”

So finding that I have no power to change
Change, I have changed myself. And this is strange,

But I have found out when I let change come,
The very change that I was fleeing from

Has often held the good I had prayed for,
And I was not the less for change, but more.

Once I accepted life and was not loath
To change, I found change was the seed of growth.
