Five Decisions for Life

February 22, 2015

*

I need the tools
The ones that open the mind
To inexpressible joy
There’s a way to find peace
That passes understanding

*

Five decisions must be made
First a decision to live
Then don’t make friends with your pain
Are two essentials

*

Now you are ready
Take Responsibility
Stop blaming others and self
This is the big one
There’s no growth till this happens
Life begins with your beliefs

*

The past is a gift
You know what you don’t want
Or you know what you do want
Get a clear vision
Of who you are and what you want
Then you will know the questions

*

This is the big one
Decide you are worth fighting for
Yes, you are worth it
Your value is in being
You must learn to love yourself

*

So there are five gifts you must give yourself
1) Decide to Live
2) Decide to Not Make Friends with Your Pain
3) Decide to Take Responsibility
4) Decide to Get a Clear Vision
5) Decide You Are Worth Fighting For

*

All the best on your journey.

Two Strong Feelings

December 30, 2013

 

 

Two strong feelings come

One is great joy and laughter

The other “I feel afraid”

Help me trust in your love

Seek your will with all my heart

 ~

Where will this take me

A question I want to know

Give me your vision

Help me see the world like you

Show me where I can serve you

 ~

The Wonderful Counselor

The Prince of Peace is with me

The Everlasting Father

These great voices speak

 ~

Father shows no favorites

Each child is called to listen

Each one is beloved by God

The work: to believe

 ~

This new world clashes

The power to receive love

Accept forgiveness

As opposed to the judgment

Man gives to one another

 ~

The judgment we give

Will be the judgment we get

So be gentle with yourself

Go against the gods

That live in your unconscious

The ones you learned as a child

 ~

The unconscious arises

When the pressure of life hits

When the trouble really comes

Wisdom is needed

 ~

I will train to be ready

Consistent daily practice

Guard my heart with diligence

Out of it flows life

 ~

Reflections written after reading Luke 14 out loud and meditating on the following thoughts:

 ~

“Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust

who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.”  Psalm 40:4

 ~

“When I am afraid,

I will trust in you.

In God I trust, I will not be afraid.

What can man do to me?”  Psalm 53:3-4

 ~

“Trust in the Lord at all times, O people;

pour out your hearts to him, for God is your refuge.”  Psalm 62:8

 ~

“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.”  Isaiah 26:3-4

 ~

In the book,  Delta Blues From Darkness to Life,  the painful process of dismantling of these “unconscious gods” that keep us stuck are exposed and a process of deliverance is revealed in one man’s life.  You can read the reviews of the book at www.coachinglifematters.com.  All the best on your journey.
