Memo From God

Godvine has many inspiring videos and stories of inspiration to a life of faith.  I have no idea on the site where of even if they keep the stories, though the videos are evident at the link.  But, I receive them daily with a list of the most recent videos, and usually something in the email touches my heart.

I hope that the Memo to you/me from God below touches you.  We try so hard to figure it out - whatever it is. We want to solve our problems to bolster our self esteem, but even when we do appear to solve our problems there are the conjunction of various circumstances that cause this to happen.  Of course, we would like to believe that we are in charge and that they are just coincidences.  But, as a Catholic priest friend of mine told me a number of years ago, they are not coincidences, they are GOD INCIDENCES.

The hardest thing to do in life is to Let go and Let God, or more formally to abandon ourselves to Divine Providence.  Yet, nothing can bring greater satisfaction than to recognize the One who loves us and who cares about everything, every situation in our lives, and only wants to love us and see us through them.

Here is a memo from God to us.

Reference: LIFE

I am God.

Today I will be handling all of your problems. Please remember that I do not need your help.

If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. All situations will be resolved... but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now

If you find yourself stuck in traffic; Don't despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work; Think of the man who has been out of work for years.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad; Think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; Think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance; Think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror; Think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; Remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!

Should you decide to send this to a friend, thank you. You may have touched a life in ways you will never know!
