There are reminders and opportunities each and every day to allow demonstrations of
faith that we believe we are taken care of by an abundant universe. Opportunities to experience and to recieve are given to us if we but see them for the opportunities that they are and not as some mistake or obstacle.
I have been working steadily towards opening myself up to receiving my abundance and prosperity and today I was given the chance of demonstrating my faith, trust and belief that all my needs are taken care of.
I was searching around my jewelry box this morning for a pair of earrings to wear, when I saw a $100 bill that I had been given as a Christmas gift from a wonderful friend. The only thing she asked was that I spend it on myself. (She knows how hard that has been for me to do.) I had forgotten all about it, as I had put it away in case I needed it to pay a bill or buy food, etc.
But I remembered then of my promise that I would spend it on something for myself. I realized in that moment that not only was I breaking a promise but that I was dishonoring the giver.
So I took the money, got in the car with my friend and went to the store. I have been needing a set of sheets for my bed for a while now, but had not found the ones I really wanted. But, today I found them, and didn't even look at the price just the quality of what I wanted. And the money and the sheets weren't even the best part, I had such a good time laughing and talking with my friend and then made friends with a lady that was also shopping.
All in all I FELT happy, and it was so nice to feel good for a while. Well, I got home and a few minutes later, I got a call that I was getting a new resident for the home for the elderly that I run for this weekend.
The lessons received were several today as well as the blessings:
- To receive & enjoy gifts, honors the giver.
- That I allowed myself to spend time just for me and to give myself a special treat.
- That God's abundance and prosperity flowed to me as I put aside my fears of lack and had Faith and Trust that there is an abundant flow of prosperity in my life and that all flows from the One Source - The Divine.
I am in great gratitude that I was able to demonstrate my faith and trust and that I opened myself up to the Divine's Abundance flow for me.
DAY 2 - I DECLARE I will experience God's faithfulness. I will not worry. I will not doubt. I will keep my trust in Him, knowing that He will not fail me. I will give birth to every promise God put in my heart and I will become everything God created me to be.
THIS IS MY DECLARATION.
