Approaching Problems With Love

Is there something bothering you? Something over which you debate what to do because you are unsure what is right?

Does a problem seem so big you don't know where to begin?

We all have conflicting feelings. It can be difficult not only to know the best course to take, but even the next small step.

Fortunately, we have access 24/7 to a touchstone of truth. We call Him God.

Align with God and His love will illuminate your way.

So how can you align with God? Does it take hours of prayer or meditation?

No. Although spending hours in prayer or meditation is uplifting, joyful and cleansing, we don't often have the time, given the structure of our lives, to do so.

So when you are in a hurry, but you need to connect with God's good, do this:

Ask God to illumine your heart and mind so you become part of whatever solution you need and know your next step.

Then sit, take three deep breaths, close your eyes and focus on your heart. Let go and realize there is nothing more important that you could be doing.

Then love our Source/Creator with all your heart and mind for five minutes.

After this interval, spend time sending love to yourself.

That's right! For five minutes send yourself the love you feel for God, your children, spouse, parents and pets, for you deserve no less love than anyone else.

At the end of this "spiritual treatment" using the best medication in the world - love - you will know your next step. And you will know it comes from God so you can proceed with confidence.

Remember, God can only do for you what He can do through you.

Love God and yourself every day and ask for guidance. Make this ten minutes a day your top priority.

In this way He will be able to work through you for the healing of your life and the world.

Remember Galatians 5:9:

A little leaven leavens the whole lump.
