Abundance . . . a New Awakening

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”  ― Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

I love joyful moments. While I wish I had them 24 - 7, I realize I could not appreciate the joyful moments without knowing what the sad moments of despair.  You cannot appreciate love without knowing hate.  What I cannot figure out though, is why we tend to get so lost in the negative that it often eats away at us.  That is when we should be concentrating on the good, the joyful times, the times filled with love and goodness. We are given those moments to keep in our hearts to keep us steady when we walk through that Valley. God is that love and goodness, and that joy. 

"The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned."  

This is from Psalm 34. It has become part of my heartbeat in life.  When you have a crushed spirit... only the Lord can knit you all back together. Our hope is in HIM and not in man. It is through his positive Love, Joy, Light and Grace that we can find our way. 

Do No Harm.    

Do Good in All You Do.    

Live Your Life in Love with the Lord, Praising and Serving Him at All Times 

I will always remember the abundance He has provided in my life. I walk each valley with Him holding my hand. It certainly helps to have a loving husband and supportive adult children. I give thanks to the Lord for all he provides.  I extend forgiveness in my heart, as I know I have during my life hurt others with words and actions.  

Genesis 41:31 "The abundance in the land will not be remembered, because the famine that follows it will be so severe."
