(A place of peace, prayer, and power)
(A meditation spot)
"MORE SPIRITUAL RETREAT"
Thinking it over, I believe that it was the environment, the spiritual aura that surrounded the weekend more than the words that were said that made it so special. That isn't to say that there weren't a lot of really good things said. Here are some of them:
When the direction you are going finds you meeting lights that stay green, then keep going that way.
Let go the control of your heart so there is enough room for God to get in.
If more than one person is saying the same thing, you should listen.
I can render God powerless by saying, "No". He allows free will.
God is always creating something new. Every moment is new. Every experience is new.
I was a person of extremes. I need to stay balanced between the extremes.
When 'need' shows itself, you'll have everything you 'need'.
The following was a guide to meditation: Ask yourself what message is it that you most need to hear today? (Which message has been lost that you need to retrieve?)
1. You are wanted. 2. You are loved for yourself. 3. You are safe. 4. You will be taken care of. 5. You will not be betrayed. 6. Your presence matters.
I am at a place where I usually feel wanted, loved, safe, and cared for. I never feel like I will be betrayed. The one I chose to focus on was, "Your presence matters."
God is in the ordinary and the extraordinary.
We can't listen well when we are talking.
I hope these thoughts bring a sense of peace and serenity to you as they have done for me. God bless all you bloggers, Prayer Girl
I'm sober in AA since July 5th 1985, and a grateful member of Alanon since November 2004.
I joined the "blogosphere" in September, 2008.
In December 2011 I became a grandmother for the first time and now understand why it's such a big deal. I'm wildly in love again with that little guy.
