More Please…Thank You

Have you ever had that really good meal or dish that you just didn’t want to come to an end?  When you are eating it, you might find yourself (or someone watching you notices) smiling, humming or shaking your feet.   Just as you are about to come to the end of your meal, someone asks you if you are done and you respond with “More Please…Thank You.”  Well, that’s how I look at life.  We have the opportunity to have an incredible delicious life, one greater than we could ever think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).

In my book, The G.R.E.A.T.E.S.T. Soul Journey, chapter four focuses on how you envision your Greatest life.  Reminiscent of a sermon that I heard from Della Reese, where she talked about being clear on what you want but being open to how it comes, I encourage people to take time and think about their Greatest Life…not just a good life but their Greatest Life and then being open to how it all unfolds.

As we live by the Spirit, we trust that Spirit will bring us that which will provide us with our Greatest Life as well as opportunities to express our core essence.  For example, I spent many years teaching but stopped for a couple of years to work on other professional projects.  However, as I reflected on who I am…my core essence…I remembered that I Am a teacher and a healer.  Once I “reconnected” with this, it was like an awakening took place, which led to an Increase by the Spirit.

My teaching and healing opportunities have increased throughout the year and continue to unfold.  They occur in different ways but the essence is still the same … I am teaching and helping others heal. The more I teach and help others in their healing, the more alive I feel … the more on purpose I Am.  Just like when I am eating that good meal, I find myself humming, smiling, and sometimes even clapping.  Thus, I found myself saying to God, “More Please…Thank You”.

As someone who listens to people, I often hear people say, “I can’t take any more” or “this is too much” when really good things are happening in their life.  On the other hand, I hear the infamous, “God gives you what you can handle” during life’s trying times.  I am often confused and wonder why it takes people so long to finally say (if they say it at all)

“I can’t take any more or this is too much” during the trying times.

My point is when we make these statements during our windfall we may be inadvertently stopping the blessings from coming our way.  Instead take the time to acknowledge these blessings and from whence they flow, and remain open to receive more by saying these words to Spirit…“More Please…Thank You”.

God Bless and continue to Live By The Spirit.
