resolve

Resolve to be tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving
and tolerant with the weak and wrong.
Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.
~ Buddha ~

Today, I was stumped about what the topic of this post should be.  I sat in front of my computer with not only a blank screen, but a blank mind.  It was very frustrating.  Suddenly, I realized that I did not read any of my daily devotionals.  So, I turned to my Archangel Michael prayer cards. The message I received couldn’t have been any clearer.  It read “this situation is already resolved”.  Thus, my title.

Okay, that was easy. I had my title. Yet, I still wasn’t sure where I was headed with this post.  So, I looked up the definition of resolve:  “to settle or find a solution”.  That worked.  Next, I looked up quotes.  I was in a quandary.  It was hard to settle on just one.  Lastly, I tried to find a song that would be meaningful.  I’m picky.  I have to like the song to be able to share it.  I left that up in the air.

Personally, I decided to go with the “to settle” definition. I didn’t mean settle in the “oh I give up” or “whatever” kind of way. I meant “to settle” in the “let go and let God” kind of way. Turning to my devotional answered some questions I needed answers for.  Sure I thought I was looking for some creative epiphany, but I think I was looking for something more as well.

I received a personal message.  It was clear as day.  I received confirmation that my prayers were truly being heard.  God and his angels were at work. My job was to let go, trust, and to settle.  My worries and concerns were a hindrance in my being able to be compassionate, tender, sympathetic, and tolerant.  Ultimately, impeding my ability to “speak life”.  I speak my life to you with a quote from Mother Teresa:

Let us always meet each other with a smile; for the smile is the beginning of love.

 

 Speak Life
by TobyMac
Some days life feels perfect
Other days, it just ain’t workin’
The good, the bad, the right, the wrong
And everything in between
Yo it’s crazy, amazing
We can turn our heart through the words we say
Mountains crumble with every syllable
Hope can live or die
So speak life, speak life
To the deadest darkest night
Speak life, speak life
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why
Look into the eyes of the broken hearted
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope
You speak love, you speak
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
Some days the tongue gets twisted
Other day my thoughts just fall apart
I do, I don’t, I will, I won’t
It’s like I’m drowning in the deep
Well, it’s crazy to imagine
Words from my lips as the arms of compassion
Mountains crumble with every syllable
Hope can live or die
So speak life, speak life
To the deadest darkest night
Speak life, speak life
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why
Look into the eyes of the broken hearted
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope
You speak love, you speak
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
Lift your head a little higher
Spread the love like fire
Hope will fall like rain
When you speak life with the words you say
Raise your thoughts a little higher
Use your words to inspire
Joy will fall like rain when you speak life with the things you say
Lift your head a little higher
Spread the love like fire
Hope will fall like rain
When you speak life with the words you say
So speak life, speak life
To the deadest darkest night
Speak life, speak life
When the sun won’t shine and you don’t know why
Look into the eyes of the broken hearted
Watch them come alive as soon as you speak hope
You speak love, you speak
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
You speak life, oh oh oh oh oh
Some days life feels perfect
