I am so glad that September is right around the corner. I miss everyone at church and the services.,but we will be back home in little over two weeks. For me summer is going very slowly and I appreciate that, but feeling empty without you guys. I hope you are missing us also.
I hope everyone is feeling peace surrounding their lives right now and if problems do arise, may they be small in size and in importance. Do not worry about minor things that mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. We were not put on this earth to worry, we were put on it to find love, peace, happiness and to find our way along our spiritual path. We are also here to make a difference, whether small or large for the benefit of ourselves and others.
When you read the last line of the last paragraph, it can seem kind of scary. You can think , "oh my gosh, I'm only one person, what can I do to make a difference in this vast world of ours. How can I help all the people that need help." I say to you, "One person and one day at a time". Just by a show of kindness to someone, YOU can change their world. When you read that line over, and realize it does not take much to make a difference it is really quite amazing. If everyone tried to do that every day, do you think it would bring some awesome changes in our world, of course it would.
I hope since we were together last, in June, that you are still meditating, and moving forward on your path wherever it may take you. Remember if you hit a bump in the road, just back up and go around. There is no obstacle that can stop us from obtaining anything we desire, and long as we keep moving toward it. Do not let fear of failure slow you down either. If you stop you will never reach what you desire, just take one step, even if it is a baby step, and keep moving forward.
I am enclosing in this message a small prayer that may help some of you that feel helpless right now. I hope it helps.
Prayer for Peace of Mind
I come to you today to ask your help in making my days and nights become peaceful again. God I have witnessed many examples of mans inhumanity to man, and this has been bothering me greatly. My days are troubled and my nights are worse. I need your love and healing and your white light of protection to get me thru these trying times.
I am asking for help now God, because I feel I cant handle these troubles alone, so I am asking for peace of mind and strength to move forward from all things troubling me;
I ask humbly that you stay with me through out my day and night so when I become overwhelmed by life, I feel your presence with me. In the day time I ask for help dealing with daily life dealing with work and family issues, and at night please help me to rid my mind of negative thoughts and visions that keep troubling me now. God I so need Rest.
God I pray to you, because I know your always close and when we need help , you are there. I thank you for any healing and protection and love that you can surround me with.
In closing God I also ask you to help those close to me that also need your help during this time and may they also find peace in their lives and mind.
Sent with much love, Rev. Patti Craig
