I have a powerful message for you, and that is God appreciates you. Spirit values who you are, what you do, and where you are in your consciousness.
Now, I'm aware that you might be in opposition of this truth, because your life just isn't where you want it to be. You may be experiencing a health challenge, or you may be sitting on a pile of bills, or your love life isn't happening the way you'd like it to be. There could be any assortment of things, which you feel are not going in your favor. So, because of these circumstances, you're not in a grateful mood right now. This is understandable, but look at it like this: We are spiritual beings, having a human experience. We were created to express God's vision for living. We express God's vision by the way we think, and how we act out our thoughts.
What you are experiencing is a fact of life, a reality for living, but it is not the truth of who you are or what you do. Who you are, is a loving child of God. What you do, is outwardly express God's love on this planet. You express God's love by the way you act out God thoughts, which are in you.
So the question to ask yourself is, how are you acting out God's thoughts? Are you acting out God's thoughts in a negative way? Instead of looking at your lessons for living, you want to place blame on others, overlook your mistakes and judge and criticize? Or, are you acting out God thoughts in a positive way? Accepting responsibility for your life, and always looking at the good? What we give attention to in consciousness we appreciate, and we draw more of that to us. This works both ways.
This week, spend some time appreciating life and everything in it. Call someone, and let them know that you value them for who they are and what they do. Send someone whom you have a grudge against a card or flowers. Do something good for yourself, and give thanks for everything. Remember this; when you appreciate life, life appreciates you and the law of your livingness responds to you accordingly. Have a wonderful, joyful, and appreciative week.
Peace & Blessings,
