Great morning Beautiful Spirits!!! Happy Happy Happyyyyy Monday!!! 😁❤️🌟
Does anyone remember the line in the song that went something like this: “I expect a miracle every day! God will make a way, out of no way?” Repeat, repeat, repeat! 🎶🎶 🎶 (***inserts imagine me singing this in your head***) 😁😁😁
I digress, in fun! 😂
✅ But seriously listening to the chorus of this song, if we really expect miracles (a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency) EVERY DAY, miracles should BE our lifestyle! Our way of life. Our way of thinking and being.
✅ But is it? If this is the daily expectation, why are so many people sad, frustrated, and unhappy while many others are happy, blissful, and full of life no matter the circumstance?
✅ Before answering this perhaps the more poignant question to ask ourselves is “What constitutes a miracle?” What are we expecting God to do every day as the songwriter commands? 🤔
Wow! From fear to love! You mean that’s it!? That’s all we have to do to experience a miracle?? Shift our perspective from thoughts of fear to thoughts of love....from acts of fear to acts of love...
Sound easy right? I believe it can be, with practice and focused change.
❤️ ❤️ Let’s take an example from a portion one of the most recited scriptures at weddings these days, 1 Corinthians 13:
“(LOVE) is patient, (LOVE) is kind. It does not envy (FEAR), it does not boast (FEAR), it is not proud(FEAR). It does not dishonor (FEAR) others, it is not self-seeking (FEAR), it is not easily angered (LOVE), it keeps no record of wrongs (LOVE). Love does not delight in evil (FEAR) but rejoices with the truth (LOVE). It always protects(LOVE), always trusts (LOVE), always hopes (LOVE), always perseveres (LOVE). Love never fails (FEAR).”
❤️ ❤️ Putting 1 Corinthians 13 in context as it relates to the chorus in the song, “I expect a miracle (LOVE) every day! God will make a way (LOVE) out of no way (FEAR), we can surmise that LOVE IS THE MIRACLE!
❤️ ❤️ Let’s go further, putting 1 Corinthians13 into context relative to Marianne Williamson’s perspective OF a miracle... when we SHIFT from thoughts of fear (failure, anger, frustration, thoughts of the past, insecurities, rejection) TO thoughts of LOVE (kindness, patience, trust, compassion, empathy) this SHIFT in mindset is what changes our perspective of what a miracle is.
💡💡 That’s the miracle! The SHIFT in perspective IS the MIRACLE! Shifting away from worry and blame, to happiness and trust...away from thoughts of failure to thoughts of possibility...away from “remembering how someone talked badly about you” to understanding the love that exists within all of us.
💡💡 Shifting our perspective on what a miracle is allows us to evaluate situations from a space “Love” being the foundation of every decision. This perspective challenges us to find or sometimes even uniquely CREATE LOVE in every situation. Every single situation.
💡💡 Moving in fear only exacerbates problems, whatever the problem is. Moving in love helps us gain clarity and look for the positive outcome in everything.
❤️🌟 I don’t know about you, but I think so much better when I have clarity, peace of mind, and piece of mind all of which comes from a space of love.
For me, the miracle is being able to shift at a moments notice and move in Love ❤️and Light 🌟 and versus moving out of fear or anger.
It’s a process. 💯 It takes practice. 💯 And, it is possible. 😊🙏🏼💯
Today, I encourage you to experience your miracle, right now, by simply shifting your perspective from a space of fear to a space of love. I equally challenge you to try this in one area of your life, today. 😊 I know you can do it.
