Many of us experience areas of our life where the changes and
results we want to see aren’t showing yet…
Here’s some thoughts I video’d out on the back deck yesterday
afternoon – the camera is a little jittery – but I believe you’ll
benefit from the content.
And for those of you who like to read, here’s a couple thoughts
I shared in an email with someone I’m mentoring last week that
reflect lessons that I’ve been walking out as well:
Are you familiar with some of the Old Testament stories of the
Children of Israel wandering in the wilderness? Moments when
there seemed to be no water or food, and the next moment when
God brought them water from the rock or manna to feed them?
One of the “tests” of this life is learning to hold and affirm
what’s “true” and “there” even before we see it with our eyes…
The problem is we keep looking at what we can see, getting
discouraged and/or expecting more of the same…and so not much
but at any moment things can change as we shift our expectations,
starting with practicing different thoughts…and affirming and
giving thanks for every little seed and sign along the way – even
when it’s just an idea and a possibility and nothing visible yet –
so it can grow and expand into our actual experience.
Here’s a verse that reflects this profound spiritual principle in
a poetic way, regardless of your particular faith background –
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the
word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things
which do appear.” (Hebrews 11:3)
Would love to hear your own stories of holding the vision and
belief of something “not yet seen”…and taking action toward it…
until it manifested in your own experience!
Here’s to your expansion into new possibilities and results this week!
