Today's thought is:

"The only limits to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of

today. Let us move forward with a strong and active faith." -- Franklin D. Roosevelt

Keep the Faith

When following the inner voice, one must deal with the experience of

uncertainty. The future is not laid out and comes down to trust –

trusting that the support will be there; that the money will come; that if

one path does not work out, another one will open up.

We can develop this trust from experience. We step out in faith the first

time, and the Universe supports us. We step out again and the

assistance is there. After several experiences, we begin to feel

comfortable living by faith – our "invisible means of support." We no

longer need to know ahead of time how everything will work out.

So make the decision. Let go of the worry, the anxiety, and the doubt.

Have faith in your connection to universal principles, for it is here that

your true security lies. The Universe will not abandon you if you

maintain your connection to it. Keep the faith, and the faith will keep

Thanks for this one, Miz! Your timing is incredible.

LOL! I thought the same thing about "timing" when I saw today's meditation. It's amazing how it happens like that! The Daily Jump Start was irrelevant here, so I didn't post it, LOL!

I hope you have a great day Christine!!

Ooh, this one is so good and something I have been working on daily. It's like we can actually turn our thoughts around if we want to. When we truly have faith and believe that everything is going to work out the way it's supposed to and that good will come, it makes us feel so good inside. It's almost like when we feel like we can't do it, and maybe sometimes we can, but we can faith that our higher power or something beyond ourselves is working for us. These messages are terrific!

Thank you.
