ON HIS PLAN FOR YOUR MATE

Ourweddingpic

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary on July 21, 2015. I can still remember when we fell in love, like it was just yesterday. We were both freshmen at the same college and we ended up with the same group of friends, but I was too busy flirting with the other guys in our group. I had dated or been in a relationship with one after another, since I was about 15. I didn’t allow myself to be alone. My freshman year at college, I began to feel like I’d never find my soul mate and I was frustrated, to say the least. So, I began to pray, Lord please either send me my future husband now or if I’m not to be married, help that desire to go away. I was through with the idea of just dating for fun. Then, I found this writing titled, “On His Plan For Your Mate”. Now, I’d like to share it with you. So, if you’re in the same situation that I was, read this, it helped me and I’m sure it will help you also.

“Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone-to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively. But, God, to a christian says, “No, not until you are satisfied and fulfilled and content with living loved by Me alone. I love you, my child, and until you discover that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found, you will not be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you. You will never be united with another until you are united with Me-exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any other desires and longings. I want you to stop planning, stop wishing and allow Me to give you most thrilling plan existing-one that you can’t imagine, I want you to have the best. Please allow Me to bring it to you-just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest thing-keep experiencing that satisfaction knowing that I am. Keep learning and listening to the things I tell you…you must wait.

Don’t be anxious, don’t worry, don’t look around at the things others have gotten or that I’ve given them. Don’t look at the things you think you want…you just keep looking off and away up to Me, or you’ll miss what I want to show you.

And then, when you’re ready, I’ll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any would ever dream. You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready, I am working, even this very minute to have both of you ready at the same time. Until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I have prepared for you, you won’t be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me…and this is perfect love.

And dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love, I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me, and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty and perfection and love that I offer you with Myself, know I love you utterly. I am God Almighty, Believe and be Satisfied.” author unknown

PAY IT FORWARD

I just watched the movie, Pay It Forward, for the 3rd time. I really love this movie, it’s sad, but so inspirational. If you haven’t seen the movie,I don’t want to ruin it for you. You really should see it for yourself! It came out in October 2000, it’s rated PG-13 and is 123 minutes in length. Some of the stars in the movie are: Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment. If you want all the details, you can go to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0223897/ A young boy attempts to make the world a better place, after his teacher gives him that chance. It really makes you think about life. We don’t know how much our actions touch a life/lives for good or bad, depending on what the action was. We’re all on a path in our lives and we don’t know how long that path will last. What do you want people to think and say about you, when your path is over? Everyday in life and business, we make decisions. We can choose to do things that make a negative impact on our world or we can choose to make a positive impact. I know we all have days when we feel sick or down. On our normal days, let’s make the decision to make a positive impact on our world, whatever that looks like.

Being a christian, I know that I must do my devotions; reading the Bible and spending time in prayer everyday, to be successful. I must also remember to be patient with others and think of others above myself. I also need these things to be a good wife and mother, especially with special needs children. We must not only read the Bible, but also do what the Bible says and tell others what Jesus Christ has done for them.

Being an entrepreneur, I know that I have to make sure that I’m working on myself, to make sure that my mindset is right to be successful. An entrepreneur has to do things that most people don’t want to, to sacrifice things that most people aren’t willing to sacrifice. Things that might seem trivial, but make all the difference. There is a saying, I’ve heard many times that you have to be willing to do what others won’t do, so you can have what others want. We have to know our strengths and weaknesses. Personally, I have to stay in the right mindset, by reading and listening to motivating authors and speakers everyday. I also have to be around positive people and get the encouragement to keep on working. I must be persistent doing the things that make someone successful. Be persistently consistent. You must be willing to do all these things, without the promise of reward, which is the hardest part. The young boy in the movie did things that most people won’t do and he did get to see some of the rewards from his hard work, but most of the rewards showed up after he was gone. We’ll always reap what we sow. So many positive things happened as a result of what the boy did when he was alive. It really is amazing what we can do, when we make the commitment to do them and follow through. The boy affected so many people, positively by the things he did. He taught so many to do the right thing and because of this, he changed lives. How many lives can we touch and change positively?
