if God brings you to it he'll bring you through it...

a beloved friend said this to me today...another friend told me i could not keep open a door God has closed...that's been me for a long time now...trying to hold open a door God closed...


For those feeling alone on their journey...

"God, I don't understand why you're allowing me to feel distant from you right now, but I trust that you will always do what is best for me. So I place my prayer life in your hands, and I accept whatever it is you wish to do with it. "  Mark E. Thibodeaux, God, I Have Issues


from Neale Donald Walsh's  I believe God wants you to know today...


....that the sage awakes to light in the night of all creatures. That which the world calls day is the night of ignorance to the wise.


The Bhagavad Gita says that, and it is right.  This scripture means that when all creatures are living in the illusion of darkness, the sage sees things as they really are, and awakes to that vision, praising the perfection. Conversely, what the world calls "day" (or "bright" or "real") is an illusion...the "night of ignorance"...to the wise person who sees how pointless and worthless the shiny stuff of life that most people seek truly is. 


Peer deeply into the darkness, then, and you will see the light.  Yet turn away from the brightness of what others call "day", for they mistake the bright for the good.


pink skies in morn - sailors be warned...

God...i have issues...trust, belief, fear...and my friends have been pointing these out to me recently...as has the universe (see the posts below)...as i travel on this journey of my life, i step forth not having a clue where i am going

Sometimes we have just the most terrible challenges that we MUST face. I'm on the sidelines now for two friends and one child. Friend and emotional support to the three, it is the best gift we can give to our friends. It sounds like you have friends doing like for you. Here is another thought for you:

THE WILL OF GOD WILL NEVER TAKE YOU WHERE THE GRACE OF GOD WILL NOT PROTECT YOU.
