If you’re blessed to cross the threshold of the new year, be mindful of what you carry with you. The past has passed, life is short. What ever needs forgiveness, release or healing – take care of it! Do the necessary work or risk being stuck!
Unhealthy practices continue as long as we allow it. Unresolved issues further discord, dis-ease and resentment. An inability to adhere, heeding the truths that we profess to have learned…is like a self-imposed prison.
It’s clear, we can’t change the stories that have impacted us, we can change the impact of those stories over our thoughts, beliefs, words, behavior and our relationships.
It is in Him we live move and have our being…
Live wise, live well and live whole. ~Stormie Steele

No matter what experiences have been encountered, especially the ones that seem to steal one’s sense of worth – take present ownership of your life. As often as such is permitted – accountability, perspective and order can take its rightful place.
Present ownership is spiritual and personal empowerment, it’s liberating. ~Storm

Some times our behavior doesn’t line up with our profession of faith. The practice of patience, character, discipline, servitude and love brings us into alignment. ~Stormie Steele

In the mean time…the in between time, is significant time. ~Stormie Steele

“The quiet” seems to be a place where activity is unwelcome. Quite the contrary, “the quiet” offers the activity of continuous transformation. This is especially true when “the quiet” is in union with “trust”.
“Trust in The Lord with all of your heart, and lean not to your own understanding.” ~Proverbs 3;5 (NIV)
“…in quietness and trust is your strength…” ~Isaiah 30:15b (NIV)
Through “the quiet”, the invisible becomes visible. ~Storm

We have all the tools needed in order to live healthier lives (mind, body, spirit).
The answers are not more tools, rather, making practical use of the ones we have. ~Life Through The Storm
Rest is essential as we move through daily living. Rest is that portal that paves way for clarity.
Rest prepares us to hear – assisting in the emptying of debris and concerns that ignite stress.
Rest is the commanding of inner peace, perspective and order.
Rest allows us to heal…to re-access and often, re-prioritize our approach towards particulars.
Rest permits us to maintain (as best as possible) optimum health…mind, body, spirit.
Whether we choose prayer, meditation, a nature hike, or simply kick back on some relaxing music…rest is the tool that refuels momentum!
Are you resting?
Wishing you balance and wellbeing. Storm
It’s not useful, release it. If it serves no healthy purpose, let it go.
Flush it out, eliminate it.
Don’t allow it to linger…heal. If it’s not useful, why hold on to it?
Live wise and live well. ~Storm
