Yesterday, in our Sundays With Spirit online Sunday Service we had kironJ Gardner as our speaker. Her sharing really inspired me and I spoke about how I discovered what I never would have imagined to be true.
For a very long time I believed that if I said, “thy will be done,” It would mean that I’d have to give up many of the things I enjoyed because Spirit would “take them away.”
I learned that it’s just the opposite.
The things I thought Spirit would take away haven’t been removed from my life – things like sensual pleasures, of all kinds, I don’t have to give them up. I can actually enjoy them even more now.
The things that led to my pain and suffering have largely been lifted off of me.
I don’t worry much at all.
I have little doubt or fear.
I feel led, guided and protected.
Things have ONLY improved and the things that I’ve gratefully given up have become uninteresting and undesirable to me.
I didn’t give them up because Spirit made me.
For instance, I quit smoking.
I’ve actually quit smoking three times in my life.
The third time was the easiest. I just stopped because I no longer enjoyed cigarettes and I didn’t want them. It was no sacrifice, there was no craving to be endured.
It just lifted off of me.
I wouldn’t have guessed that by deciding to be Spirit led life would become more enjoyable in EVERY way.
I feel it’s important to talk about it because I don’t think people believe it’s real.
The only things I’ve given up are the things I didn’t like or want – like feeling unworthy. Gone.
What would you like to give up?
Would you be wiling to say, “thy will be done?”
