    Daily Miracle Message

    One of the prayers of my life has been, “Use me”.  I recognize that I’ve been given a lot of talents, gifts and resources. So have you. What if you turned it all over to God, right now, and said, “Use me”?

    It seems a little gesture. Like, what can I do? Little old me?

    But it is a great request. And it leads to great things.

    Your life is filled with promise. You were born that way. And though you may have forgotten, God didn’t forget about you. The best thing you can do, right now, is say, “Use me, Father”.

    You will never know all that you have done to serve God. You have forgotten most of those tiny gestures. But many, many lives have been saved because of you. You wouldn’t be here right now, living and breathing, reading this book, if God didn’t have a great plan for you.

    All you have to do is let everything go, all your regrets and mistakes (if you have any) – even your past glories – and turn everything, I mean everything, good and bad, proud of and not proud of, both hope and despair… and say, “I don’t know what I’ve done so far, but please use me for the rest of it.”

    And He will.

    Boy, has my life changed since I turned that phrase.  From self-serve to High Service! I still have a long way to go, but I never give up asking God to make my life count and push me to do what needs to be done.

    And I have never been more content.

    It doesn’t matter what is going on in my life, one way or another, God turns it all around and makes everything turn out great. And it just keeps getting better. Sure, I am still challenged, I still suffer, but overall, as I look back, I am amazed at his goodness and response to my call, and mine to his!

    When you’re in doubt, when you don’t know what to do, when you think you’ve made too many mistakes, or that it’s too late, just say this tiny prayer and your whole world will change:

    “Use me.”

    Daily Miracle Prayer

    Dear God, Use me. I may have made a lot of  mistakes and wasted a lot of time. I can’t take that back. But I can give you everything I have now. Take my whole life: my talents, my gifts, my mistakes. Make everything right. Make everything great. For the rest of my days… Use me. Amen.

    Daily Miracle Blessing

    There is nothing, nothing you can do to stop my Love for you. You have not fallen off my page. I still have your name on my list. I have a plan that needs your gifts. Let go of all your cares and just say, “Use me”. And I will make all things right.

    Day 6 Unravelling Chaos

    Daily Miracle Message

    The natural order of life is to let life (or nature) take over.  Like the front garden of our house, if left to its own devices, will become a weed wonderland, and Alice will get very, very lost.  If we don’t get hold of it, it the weeds will take hold, and we will be struggling with the chaos instead of smelling the roses.

    My goal, my hope, my commitment, is to unravel chaos, one day at a time. By structuring time, by seeing it as tiny moments to be used and treasured, with clarity and conscious effort, instead of idly drifting by… 

    There is a time for rest and acceptance, allowing even; and there is a time for action, pruning, purpose. Conviction!

    The more consciously aware we become, the greater the reward to our peace of mind.  We can create our days from a place of intention, force back the “normalcy” of distraction and addiction, and take back our lives. 

    What would it be like to arise each day filled with a singleness of purpose, with passion, with dedication, with devotion? 

    Let’s try it!

    Clarity brings action, and action removes distraction; the less time we waste, the more time we have; the more time we use well, the greater our lives become, like a giant rose garden filled with luscious spell-binding roses, that have been lovingly cared for, and that bloom again and again over time.

    From sorting socks, to sorting clocks, we need to empty our minds of distractions and temptations, and find time for our true cause.

    What makes you awake and jump to create? What do you live for that won’t go away? What is more important than your next snack, text message or social media “like”?

    For me, I would build that beautiful rose garden, whatever it takes: one day, one project, one moment at a time!

    Daily Miracle Practice

    • Take a break. From distraction. 
    • Sort the chaos. Build from action.
    • Give yourself time to be the person you were born to be.
    • Start today!

    Daily Miracle Prayer

    Dear God, help me to create order in my life, and remove distraction and temptation from my midst. Help me to see my purpose with clarity and devotion; and to practice what I need to do, and what not to do, one day at a time. Thank you, Amen.

    Daily Miracle Blessing
