When I lost
Jared, I had a choice, to become bitter (against God and the world) or
to become better (looking towards God and making a better world).
There is only one letter separating those two words - I
Life is not really
measured in time, but it's measured in "events." We can't always
choose what events happens to us in this life; a death, an accident, or
painful events we didn't ask for, but we can choose what we do after that
event happens. If you think about it, the "event" of just being born
was pretty important. With each step as we grow the the events of
our life go forward, and so do our choices after each event.
I believe we all
have a purpose for living on this earth. If we search for those defining
moments, those events in our life that can make us unique and important,
we can all have unlimited spiritual experiences if we look towards
God as we discover what our purpose is. The keys to growth and building
confidence in yourself, (your spiritual abilities), depends on two things,
how you educate yourself and how you serve others.
I hope the readings
in this section will uplift you and encourage self study and service so
you can discover your purpose and know that you are
Child of God.
So far, today,
I've done all right. I haven't gossiped or lost my temper.
I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, or self centered. I'm really
happy about that so far. But in a few minutes I'm going to be getting
out of bed and then I'm going to need a lot of help. Thank you!
