As I look around me there are a lot of people who are giving and serving in the world, but who also seem to be facing a lot of fear, worry, anxiety, pain, frustration, lack, and all sorts of challenges each and every day.
The masses of men, women, children, and all of earth’s inhabitants are essentially living their lives in “quiet desperation” as Henry David Thoreau so aptly put it. Meanwhile we watch the world’s top 1 percent rule everything and live the good life, so to speak.
It is time to start writing a different story, one that uplifts all people and all creatures, across our planet.
As Gandhi said, “The world has enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for everyone’s greed.”
Christ in his Sermon on the Mount reminds us, “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes… Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them…”
It is time to start living the story of abundance. All our needs are supplied. We have a future and a hope.
Believe in Miracles. Trust the Process.
“Life-Well Lived” Challenge
Day Four Challenge: Trust the Process.
When I trust the process I am acknowledging that all my needs are supplied from day to day and I am empowered but the belief that I have a future and a hope. In a world where miracles seem to be a thing of the past or something ethereal that only happens to other people, I choose to believe in miracles. Trusting the process is life-affirming.
Day Four Power Word: Trust
Day Four Affirmation: I am choosing to believe in miracles and to trust the process that unfolds as God supplies all my needs and provides me with a future and a hope. I truly embrace the fulfillment of my goal of “Being a Financially Independent Woman” (fill in the blank with your goal for the 28-Day Challenge).
Day Four Action: Take the time to sit down and write out the top 5 reasons I want to achieve my goal of “Being a Financially Independent Woman” (fill in the blank with your goal for the 28-Day Challenge). Take these top 5 reasons and turn them into a one-sentence statement that answers the question: Why? In other words, why do I want to achieve my goal of “Being a Financially Independent Woman” (fill in the blank with your goal for the 28-Day Challenge)? Express gratitude for this personal desire that God has planted in my body, mind, and soul for a Life Well-Lived. Over the course of the day, when a negative thought or doubt comes up about achieving my goal, I will replace those thoughts with expressions of gratitude that celebrate the fulfillment of my goal.
