Strategic Questions and Answers

When GOD asks a question, how will you respond? He asked Adam: “where art thou” and again, “who told you were naked?” Jesus asked the man lying by the pool of Bethesda – “Do you want to be healed?”  He asked the woman caught in adultery, “where are your accusers?”  He asked Mary – “Woman why are you crying?”

Strategic Questions and AnswersWhen GOD asks a question, how will you answer, will you even answer or will you turn away? Maybe GOD has been asking you a question, what do you want me to do for you? Or perhaps, tell me where you hurt?

Let’s not be afraid to respond when he asks a question, Trust his unconditional love, his mercy, and forgiveness. I believe when GOD asks a question, he is shaking us in the spirit. He is shaking off physical eyesight and moving us into the eyes of the spirit. God is not asking you about your neighbors answer to the question he wants you to answer for yourself.

Some of us are in associations that are drying us up. The people you hang around with are sad and depressed; they discuss their problems more than they seek the problem solver. They blame society, the man, the boss, their mother, their boyfriend, everything else is the source of their problem, and it has dried them up. Their dreams are dry. Their careers are dry. Their marriages are dry — depleted from lack of care and attention.  And by association we have joined in this dryness. Scattered dreams and goals, left unattended.

Collect your thoughts, collect your dreams, and pick them up from where you left them. Dust off those journals, Go back and pick up the outline of that unfinished book. Can your dreams, marriages, or life be revived? Can they live once again? Do they have any energy left in them?  It only takes a spark to ignite them once again.

Brush up against someone who is ablaze with success in your field of choice. Make a dinner date with the single friend who is content and filled with “joie de vivre”.

Ask yourself the hard questions; “If I remain in this career, house, or relationship where will I be in 5 years, or even 5 days?” Rather than denying the truth like the child who has crumbs surrounding his mouth yet denying that he took a cookie. Look at it for what it is — a dead end street or a thoroughfare with multiple exits that will lead to success.

REPAIR – Are You Ready for the Holiday Season?

The Holiday season is quickly approaching. For many, this is a season of joy and great expectations. Will he pop the marital question? repair_-_are_you_ready_for_holiday_seasonAm I getting that new car? How will I ever fit all those people in my house?

And yet, for others it is the opposite end of the emotional spectrum. There is a pang of loneliness for those close to us who may have passed on.  Together with those who are grieving over the relationship that did not work out as planned.  There is no doubt that the ache is real. There is a back and forth-ness of this ordeal.

Some days you may find yourself at peace because you had the experience of that relationship and other days there is anger because they are no longer there. How could they depart from this life without your permission? Why didn’t you see that he/she was not the one before you fell in love with them?

The soul echoes its needs through your emotions. Perhaps, you have heard the quote by Mahatma Ghandi, “your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, and your values become your destiny.”  It all starts with a thought, the thought if left unchecked, or placed in a better perspective can be disastrous.

Here’s the question: How do you fix your thoughts?  This is a fix as in repair. Do you repair the holes by filling them?

A short while ago, I attempted to hang a picture on my wall. Not being the handy woman, I had holes in the wall where I thought the nail should go only to have it hang crooked. So, through trial and error I finally placed the nail in the right spot. However there were several holes leaving evidence of my carpentry inexperience. As a little girl, I remember my daddy placing white soap in holes and then painting over them. (Don’t tell the landlord) I followed his example, and voila! The hole was repaired.

Now, I am not abdicating that you fill your head with soap. Although it would make for a great circus act, it would be difficult, at best. Fill the hole of loneliness from the passing of your loved one with thoughts of times of laughter and joy. The forgone relationship? Reflect on the new knowledge that was gained. What did you learn not to do or perhaps do better?

Why not fill your thoughts with the joy of knowing God. He can turn sorrow into joy. And, you will experience a peace like never before!
