Blessings to you!
This is the wonderful time of the year when we pause to give thanks for the blessings of the past year.
I know some folks are feeling gloomy, perhaps experiencing a financial downturn this past year, or losing a job, or feeling buried in a pile of debt.
Well, risking sounding totally out of touch with reality, I would like to encourage you to let go of those thoughts and feelings. The negative thoughts we may be holding right now are creating a consciousness of lack and limitation. Like a magnet they draw exactly that which we are fearing.
In the Book of Job in the Bible, Job states, "That which I have most greatly feared has come upon me." Be careful what you fear...give it too much attention and you will draw it to you!
Even if we are not actually in a dire financial state, I can assure you that if you hold the thought long enough you will create a negative condition.
The good news is that turning around the negative thoughts, erasing them with affirmations of joyful thanksgiving, will turn everything around. It's not personal...its principle.
All that we praise, bless and give thanks for multiplies! Likewise, all we moan, groan and complain about also multiplies.
Our thoughts are like seeds. We plant them in the fertile soil of consciousness, and after a while we reap a bountiful harvest.
We were meant to experience abundance. Life is meant to be good. The good is there. It is now. It always has been.
Today...on this precious "Holy Day of Opportunity," I invite you to put God first. Put Thanks before your Thanksgiving turkey; gratitude before gravy; Praise before the potatoes.
Take some time right now to give thanks. What are you thankful for today? Who are you thankful for? Let them know.
And now, go have a bright, beautiful, better-than-average day! RevAli
