Notice everything

Everybody and everything wants to be noticed. Notice every person and situation fully.  See every person as if they are God in disguise.  See every situation as an opportunity to learn and grow.  It is all in your perspective, and you have control over it.

Love is indeed the answer.  Don’t judge anything or anyone.  This includes people, ideas, and events.  The more you decide what is “good” and what is “bad,” and the less you accept things just as they are, the better things will go for you.  Our need to label things good and bad causes a lot of our distress.  It just is, without a label.

Even “bad” things need to be appreciated.  They are ways in.  They are excuses and reminders to pray to God.  They keep us awake and paying attention.   And sometimes the “bad” thing is a blessing – we just don’t know it yet.  Often it is a warning sign telling us that we aren’t paying attention to some part of our lives.

Part of loving God is trusting God.  Know that all things are within God’s hands.  Everything comes from God.  God has a plan bigger than you could ever imagine.  We humans don’t have that perspective.  We think “Why is this happening to me?” while we forget to be thankful for all the blessings we get.   Focus on them at least as much as you focus on what you think you lack.

About betsybeadhead

Hello, and Welcome. My name is Betsy, and I like beads and prayers. Fortunately those two things are more related than I ever realized. You are invited to “like” my Facebook page titled “Betsy Beadhead” and thus see what I’m talking about in my posts when I try to explain something using beads rather than words. This whole thing started because of that. Then I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I just started writing. I string together words the same way I string together beads, and both serve the same purpose. I work at a library, surrounded by ideas brushing up against each other. I draw, paint, and collage. I study world religions. In all these experiences I like combining different things and making new things, and stretching my understanding of what “is” and what “has to be.” You are welcome to share my posts - just please give credit where credit is due. I'm anti-censorship but I'm also anti-plagiarism.
