Losing your job? Chronic illness? Life not going how you want it to go? Surrender to the divine and open yourself up to the jewels of life!! Getting sick and losing my job were two of the BEST things that ever happened to me!! Had I not gotten sick I’d still be slaving away behind a desk and computer 8, 12, or 18 hours a day. For as long as I fought being sick, I stayed sick. I was so pissed! I wanted to be better & be independent again, dang it!!
That which we resist, persists. Finally, I stopped resisting and realized, God must have me in this position for a reason or two. I stopped fighting it and I surrendered my life to the Divine. “okay God”, I said, “you’ve got me where you want me. Show me why I’m in this mess. What am I not seeing? What do I need to learn? What are you trying to teach me? What do I need to see, to get better?!”
Partly, I learned, that I was brought to a point if surrender so that I could turn back to God. I had nowhere else TO turn. I was so sick, I literally felt like I was dying a slow, torturous death. As soon as I quit fighting it and accepted my situation, things took a drastic turn.
It started to dawn on me (the reasons I was so sick & the things I needed to learn). And then? Slowly, day by day, I started to get better.
Today, I am writing to you from my iPhone on a bus to Dambulla, Sri Lanka to see ancient cities. I’ve been in this country for 3 nights and have spent less than $50. With God, ANYTHING is possible!!! ANYTHING!!!
I used to be a slave to a large corporation. Now I am traveling the world and every day is a magical adventure. I will never work a 9-5 desk job again. Today, I am SO in love! I am in love with myself. I am in love with my divine. I am in love with life!! In love with my new career!! I’ve been asked to teach in two different countries already!
God shows me miracles every single day. I am blessed beyond measure. Yes. I lost my job of nearly 14 years. Yes, I lost my home. It was a hard hit to the ego losing everything I’d spent the past 13 years working for! But you know what?! I was never meant to be a computer programmer.
I only chose that profession because of the money, but my spirit was dead doing that work. I am a people person. I came here in this life to help others. Today I work for God. It’s the best job with the BEST benefits!!! Benefits like traveling the world and meeting the most amazing and interesting people ever!
Benefits like being freely offered a place to stay from random people who are also working for God and living in their Heart Space. It really is true. The more you give, the more you receive.
So… please. Do not be afraid. The Bible says that where ever you go, God goes before you. Do not be afraid of tomorrow. God is already there. What may seem like the worst disaster today may just be the biggest blessing of your entire LIFE!! Give God a chance. If you’re feeling lost, or scared, no matter what your troubles are there is one thing that is certain: God’s got your back. All you gotta do is stop fighting God’s plan for you and surrender to it.
Communicate with your divine… and if things aren’t going YOUR way, then get OUT of the way and ask your divine to show you HIS (or HER or IT’s) way… and open yourself up to all the joy and wonder that is right there, waiting for you to claim!
In Love and Gratitude,
