Today is the last day of this year – for me, as tomorrow is my birthday. Actually, if I were in Australia, today would be my birthday. I will force myself to celebrate the day that I entered this world, because for so long I have not really thought much about birthdays. That doesn’t mean I have to go out for dinner or anything, I will just remember to be in awe that the Creator called me into being for a specific purpose and I will celebrate life as a tribute to the Creator – because He doesn’t make mistakes.
So far today I have had to confront my limitations as a perfectionist, thanks to a very insightful blog post by Meg on perfectionism… (Perfectionists Anonymous)
Funny how the universe sends you what you need sometimes. I needed to re-evaluate my recovery process, which is ever constant, and to focus on helping my daughter who has the same tendency.
Then I read Mel’s post which asked
What is your idea of God? Do you believe that there is a God who created everything and who watches over all His creations? How do you relate to Him?
I haven’t answered that one yet, because it is difficult to express my answer with just a few words. Actually, I am rarely a person of few words, at least when it comes to writing them down.
I am thankful to have found these two posts today, a fitting reminder to “think” and not just exist. This new year will be my best year yet, I’m sure of it. I have much to be thankful for and I look forward to experiencing all that God has for me.
I will learn to ask, then seek the answer, and then knock on the door so that I may enter into the blessing. Previously, I thought that any one of these things was all I needed to do, but lately I have come to realize that you must do all three things: ask, seek, knock.
Luke 11:9-10 and I say to you, Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you; for every one who is asking doth receive; and he who is seeking doth find; and to him who is knocking it shall be opened.
God bless and have a great June 9th!
