Hi My Friends. I am so happy to have you in my life. You are a tremendous blessing to me. I am grateful that we have these times together. You are a comfort to me. Your presence is highly valued. If it is in God’s will, I may be in your area in the weeks, months and years to come. I look forward to meeting and spending some time with you. Our lives will certainly be enriched by the experience. Please tell those you know about Second Chance to Live.
I want to share something tonight that I was reminded of recently. So much of what you and I hear is filtered through our experience, disappointment and disillusionment. Sometimes we can not hear what people are saying because of those filters. Those who have hurt us can jade our perception. Our cynicism can be predicated by unfulfilled expectations. Sometimes our refusal to be willing comes because we have been wronged. The circumstances of yesterday can act as a rudder to steer us away from what we need.
Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. If we are cynical or have let the circumstances of yesterday deplete our today’s, we have a choice. We can chose to get busy identifying why we are cynical. We can own our disappointment and disapproval. Circumstances and people may have intentionally done us wrong, but the only thing that’s keeping us stuck is…and you guessed it…our choice.
My willingness to look at my cynicism will set me free. I will be able to listen to what I need to hear. Negative filters will be removed and I will be aware. Positive reinforcement will guide my path. Determination will replace despondency. Hope will usher me to answers. Encouragement will be the stay of my existence. I will be led to my Promised Land and I will find my bliss.
