These things are my musings:
Stop wasting your time in life, and get to the important mission of your spiritual path.
It’s almost the end of January, 2017 and this year is going to better! Let’s contemplate where we are.
Many people tell me that they don’t like this life is “real.” They don’t really feel as if they “belong” here on earth, and and they definitely “don’t fit in.” This is such a daily struggle for some that they talk to me, telling me (since I’m a doctor) that they struggle with suicide, daily. It’s because they really do feel that different, and they seek to belong. Their struggle is intense, persistent, and pervasive. They must find themselves.
Perhaps the self-struggle (and that’s what it may be) is because they are more spiritual than they know. Perhaps you are more spiritual than you know, too. Read on.
It’s time for you to start praying to God. There’s no other shortcut that I know, no human that can ‘fix’ this, no medication to take. Perhaps that is because there’s nothing “wrong” with you and God is calling out for you to seek his face. Maybe your spirit is lonely for God’s spirit.
Searching to belong? You must know that God is watching out for you. Whether you realize it or not, it’s time to give up the struggle to ‘belong.’ No one has to ‘belong.’ It’s genuinely and mathematically correct to not belong, as we are unique.
No one is YOU.
It could be that you don’t ‘belong,’ you never have, you never will, and that’s OK. Why? Because you are different. You are tuned into spiritual things, not material things of this world, as if your tuning is honed into a different wavelength than the norm. Perhaps you need to accept this and be grateful that you are thinking on your own and striving to ‘find’ yourself.
You need to be comfortable in your own skin.
I started my spiritual walk when I was seven years old, in 2nd grade. I prayed with my patients, and I’m not the only doctor that does that. After my car accident, I was a Pastor. I have always prayed a lot and people tell me I say good, short, easy prayers. I think this is a good prayer for anyone who wishes to be more spiritual.
🙏🏽 This is my daily prayer:
“Dear God, I come before you seeking Your Will in my life, and I ask you to make yourself known to me. Open the doors that need to be opened, and close the doors that need to be closed.”
“Let me walk in your straight path, keeping my eyes on you. Send me people who bring me closer to you, and allow the negative influences to walk away from me. If I lose everyone but you, I am willing to do that. Thank you, I thank you, God, for making yourself known to me. I will watch for your signs. Lead me, guide me, comfort me. Amen.”
Now wait, and be expectant and hopeful.
👌🏽 The catch is that when a door slams in your face, you will know it. It will slam hard. But you will also know that you asked for it. So accept it and MOVE ON to the opened doors. Stop wasting your time in life and get to the important mission of your spiritual path. Acknowledge and thank God for answering your prayer. Then, move onward and forward!
🙌🏽 When you see an opened door, it is also important to acknowledge it and thank God for answering your prayer. No one will consider something to be “an answered prayer” because they didn’t say the prayer themselves, they aren’t you, and perhaps they are not walking in spirituality, but in carnality …so be careful who you talk to, as they may oppose your spirituality.
Only you know when your wishes come true. Only you know the true desires of your own heart, and when they are fulfilled.
So never look for validation from someone else. Look inside your own spirit.
You’ll grow your spiritual heart. This will also help you to announce your spirituality to yourself. “Walking in Spirituality” will become a way of life. My book, Stepping from the Edge, teaches you how to Really Believe God. Step-by-step, Workbook style, it gives you the pearls of wisdom gleaned from a hard life filled with obstacles and ‘bad luck.’ I hope you can learn from it, so here is Chapter One, FREE. Winner, Nancy Mills’ Spirited Woman Tip 12 Book Pick List.
Final thought: Perhaps you are in this world,
but are not of this world. Perhaps it’s this way for all of us.
Thank you for reading my writings.
Spurring you on to Momentous Occasions.
Remember to Cherish the Moments.
