“Expect an Abundance of Everything You Need” by Joan Y. Edwards

Many times in life it doesn’t seem like you have enough of things you believe you need to survive. Sometimes it’s knowledge. Sometimes it’s money. Sometimes it’s things. Other times, it’s courage. All the time love and wisdom.

“Ask and you shall receive.” (John  16:24)

Kendra Cherry shares that psychologist, Carl Rogers, says to look at the stories of people who do amazing things. “When I look at the world I’m pessimistic, but when I look at people I am optimistic.”

Regardless of the facts that you face, it is very important that you expect that you will receive an abundance of what you need.

Your brain wants you to be right. If you say, “Things never work out for me,” guess what! Things will not work out for you many times.

If you say things work out great for me, then things have a better chance of working out than if you say things never work out for you.

There is power in your words, your thoughts, and your actions.

Put it in your plans to receive a good whole car. Why would you ask for a half of a car? So if you need a car, expect a good car to show up. Take action to help that belief materialize.

Save the money and put it in a special money market account so it gets more interest than a regular savings account for a car.

Keep your eyes and ears open for a good bargain when you have enough money to purchase one.

If you have trouble believing good things will happen to you, start by making a list of all the things and people you are thankful for in your life. A spirit of thankfulness brings you more of what you are thankful for.

In her article on the Writers on the Move blog post entitled, “Trick to Help You Start Writing or Finish Writing,Suzanne Lieurance gives many ideas for lists that I believe will help you be more optimistic. Two of them I think will help change your focus: Make a list of things you enjoy doing. Another is make a list of things you want to learn how to do.

What you focus on is what you are going to get. If something bad or sad happened to you, acknowledge it, but revamp your thinking so you don’t spend days and days worrying about it or trying to change something that cannot be changed. Reset your goals. Reset your thoughts to as positive as you can get at that particular time.

Ways to Change Your Mood and Your Mind’s Focus:

1. Pray. Thank you, God. I have an abundance of everything I need today. What I need comes to me from sources known and sources unknown.
2. Watch funny movies or movies with happy endings.
3. Listen to your favorite music.
4. Take a nap.
5. Take a walk.
6. Be thankful and name the different times you have been blessed with what you needed.
7. Make a list of the things you want and need in your life right now.

Don’t worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will take care of itself *Matthew 6:34

“Be the Love That Transforms Sadness into Joy!” by Joan Y. Edwards

When death, illness, job loss, loneliness, or a failed dream fills your heart with sadness, you cry. You mourn. You weep. You pray.

Tears flow and fall down from your swollen puffy eyes. You are lost.

Family, friends, and strangers hear your cry. God says, “Be my ears. Hear the cries of my people. Be the love that transforms sadness into joy!

Doctors, nurses, and priests look, observe, and witness. Be my eyes. See the needs of my people. Be the love that transforms sadness into joy!

UPS, FedEx, Amazon, Instacart, Uber, and postal services, be my feet. Deliver the needs and messages to my people. Be the love that transforms sadness into joy!

Men, women, and children, write, cook, and sew. Be my hands. Be the healing touch for my people. Be the love that transforms sadness into joy!

Firemen, and EMTs, smell. Be alert. Be my nose. Protect my people from fires and harmful chemicals in the air. Be the love that transforms sadness into joy!

Scientists, doctors, and safety officials of food and drugs, taste. Be my tongue and alert my people of hazards to their health. Be the love that transforms sadness into joy!

Men, women, and children, teach, share, educate, pray. Be my brain. Help my people focus on my word and what is truly important and keep their bodies and souls in balance with me their God. Be the love that transforms sadness into joy!

Men, women, and children sing, talk, smile. Be my lips and tell my people how much I love them. Be the love that transforms sadness into joy

God is amazing. He gives you ways to send and receive loving vibrations all over the world.

When you think of other people, your love radiates through the air and lands right in their hearts to lighten their load, to cheer them on, to help them to keep on going and never give up. It enables you to “Be the love that transforms sadness into joy.”

I invite you today to discover the gift of love God wants you to share with someone today. You have a unique gift that no one else has. “Be the love that transforms sadness into joy.”
