SHINE: Release by the Spirit — Turn Your SHINE Over to God

SHINE! … By the Spirit™ with Tonya M. Evans

Turn Your SHINE Over to God

© 2010 Tonya M. Evans

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

–Reinhold Niebuhr

This month we focus on RELEASING things, people, memories, beliefs & experiences that are standing between you and the Spirit-filled, love-filled, abundant life that awaits you. But the act of releasing is one that requires more strength than you have when left to your own devices, especially when the one who stands between you and your Spirit-centered life … is you.

Today, spend five minutes in prayer and meditation assessing the ways in which you might be blocking your blessings. Are you angry, unforgiving (of yourself or others), guilty, ashamed, fearful, tense, tired, troubled; or even all of the above? The time has come to RELEASE it. All of it. Resolve to RELEASE it ALL to GOD. Rely on The Creator’s strength, not your own. God never intended us to bear any load at all so God certainly never intended we go it alone.

Ask God for the strength to turn your challenges over, not to help you solve them. Our role is to serve God to our fullest capacity. God’s role is to see that we have everything we need to manifest the greatest expression of God … love. So turn your SHINE over to Him and watch how the Creator uses your light to illuminate your life AND the world!
