We all have a message for the world planted deep in our hearts. It has been there since before we were even born. It was placed there in the very depths of our souls by our creator. It is our very own purpose in this world, and it is meant to be shared. It is the spark that lights the fire in our souls. That message is Love.
Our hearts hold this sacred message until we are who we need to be to deliver it how it is meant to be. Millions of decisions have to be made, thousands of times of growth and resistance come and build the life muscles we need to carry such a message out into the world.
There are no failures, only lessons.
Everything preparing us, teaching us, growing us to become exactly who we need to be. Thank those lessons. They are there to help us, to guide us, to grow us.
Everything in our lives are little seedlings to something bigger. Some are weeds, some are briars, some are strong trees and some are delicate flowers. Each starts out as just a small tender sprout and according to how we nurture it will be what the outcome is. Even the thorns become roses, even the briars produce sweet berries. And berries are meant to be shared!
Our story is our strength!
Take the wins and the losses and celebrate them all. Look back and notice how they were all stepping stones to this moment right here, right now.
Some moments still may not make sense, and that is ok. They will. It is all for us and all to the Glory of our Creator who is molding us into our best selves if we just allow it!
Keep growing your story, planting your heart in the RIGHT places and giving it enough “son light” and “water” and nothing will stop it from growing.
Keep your heart aligned with the one who created it.
And you will be UNSTOPPABLE!
Hearts are meant to be shared.
When we live a life of love first everything else will align. Loving others is our most important job on this earth! Loving them, accepting them, knowing that we are not alone, we are all one race. The HUMAN race and God made us and loves us all.
“Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar.
For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen,
cannot love God, whom they have not seen.” 1 John 4:20
Oh, snap. That verse is a for real truth bomb!
What is the message written on your heart that you are supposed to tell the world? Keep sharing it, keep perfecting it, keep growing it. It is a lifelong story in the making and is being shared all along.
If we do not intentionally tell the story we want heard,
then the world will tell it for us,
and it will be far from our truth.
People can only see in us the truth that they see in themselves. We see in others what we have inside.
We have to be it to see it.
If you notice something in someone else, good or bad, take a minute to look inside yourself and see why it was noticed. It is something we recognize, or we wouldn’t recognize it! It is either something we are or have struggled with, or something we aspire to be that is already inside and wanting to come out! We have to be it to see it. When we notice something in someone, it is shining a flashlight on something inside of us.
So, when we CHOOSE to look at others in LOVE, to see everyone through God’s eyes. We give them permission to do the same to us.
How do you want others to perceive you? It has to start with us and flow out, others will respond to our reflection. We choose how people see us. We can choose to set the mood, the energy, the feelings. Someone has to start the love – let it be you. Let it be me. Let it be us together starting a flow of love that covers the world!
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.” Matthew 7:1
Love others and you will be Loved!
Keep loving, even when they don’t deserve it, keep loving even when they’re mean, keep loving even when they are a stranger, keep loving even when it is you in the mirror. Just Love. Nothing else matters.
We can not hate anything and make it better.
The message we are projecting from our heart should always be Love. Anything else is not the right message. Love can mean a million things, kindness, gentleness, a listening ear, not reacting to their anger, a kind look in the eyes, a good deed, a pay it forward it is the one universal language in all the world. Just Love.
Love has a million faces, and yours is one.
We can not give what we do not have. Love has to start with self. If we are full of hate inside we are blocking love from our lives. If we are at war within ourselves we can never have a deep personal relationship with anyone else, not even God. If we can’t love us, who can? People treat us how we treat us.
People can only love us to the amount we can love.
We can not give something we do not have.
Now we know our plan. Stop hating, stop judging, stop assuming, stop controlling others, Just love. Plant our heart IN LOVE. Keep telling our message, with love, of love, in love – to the whole world! And our lives will be filled with all the right people who are ready to receive our love.
Hardships come to us all, so next time you are complaining remember to put a But God… at the end of it and give that story a happy ending. None of us are alone in our stories, we have all been through things in our lives, why not rise above them and use them to help others along the way. Let them know that there is light at the end of that tunnel, that this too shall pass, that they are worth more than this, and that this now hardship is growing a muscle that you one day will be so proud of.
We should be so compassionate about loving others and getting our messages of love out that we can not be silenced. But hate is never the way.
People who choose hate
become the things they are fighting against.
Choose love. Don’t worry if you come across haters who do not align with your heart, your message was not meant for them “right now.” Just plant the seed and keep planting, it is their job to make it grow! We can only plant the seeds we are meant to and move on. The more love we plant them with, the more they will grow.
Never argue with anyone, it only puts logs on the wrong fire and will burn your message to the ground. Bless and release instead. Next!
Our message isn’t for everyone, but it is for someone.
When we are sharing it with what seems to be the wrong person, it seems to fall on deaf ears. But don’t be discouraged. Maybe it’s not for who we think it’s for, but someone else entirely. It could be for the next person that they talk to or a family member or friend down the road.
I once heard a quote that said…
“You can’t say the right thing to the wrong person, and you can’t say the wrong thing to the right person.”
Just because our message wasn’t accepted by one person, doesn’t mean it will be rejected by all, and it sure does not mean it’s not meant to be told. Just keep swimming! Keep telling it until the right people get to hear it. It will more than likely be a perfect stranger. Or someone far away. But when the right person hears it, it will make their heart explode and relight the fire inside of them.
You are the lighter, find the right matches to light!
We never know how far our ripples reach in this world. Just keep making them! What if your story was told by millions of people thousands of years after you die? #goals Even if it is rejected right now, it may be the story that sticks forever. Keep growing it, keep telling it, keep living it. Be the story you want to hear and never give up. The greatest message ever told, was not received or recognized by many at first, and still rejected by some to to this day.
Even Jesus was rejected by people in His own town. Turned on, beaten, bruised, spit on, and ultimately died for His story. Did that stop Jesus from telling it the good news? What if He had given up? Was everyone open to hearing His message of Love, Peace, Grace & Forgiveness? No! Did everyone accept it with open arms or even an open mind? Nope. Was it a great message, worthy of listening to? Absolutely.
God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17
His message lives on and so will yours if you get out there and tell it with your life! Maybe you need to build it still and that is ok, it’s a life long journey. Someone needs to hear YOUR STORY. Because it will forever change many people’s lives!
Our message grows and gets better the more we tell it, the more we care for it, the more we love it, the more we learn and grow inside, our message grows on the outside.
Don’t get discouraged by naysayers and people who don’t understand, again it is not their message to tell nor hear, and chances are they may be ignoring their own message and in a war inside of themselves so big that they are taking it out on others. That has nothing to do with you, it has everything to do with what’s inside of them. Bless and release.
For what’s inside flows out.
Your message is reminding them of theirs that is being held prisoner inside and they are hiding it from the world and it is banging about and always trying to escape the rascally thing!
I feel that’s why so many people reject Jesus’s message, they’re denying their own purposes and terrified to look within! All we can do is keep loving them and reminding them that they are worthy and that the world needs them too. Maybe with enough love and self-forgiveness, they will give their selves permission to let go and let it out and free their own hearts to grow!
“And He (Jesus) told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up since they had no depth of soil, but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” – Matthew 13:3-8
Your love messages are to be planted like seeds all around the earth! With everyone you meet… and sometimes your message has no words. Sometimes it is your presence, your vibe, your enthusiasm, your unexpected love, a smile, a touch, a secret good deed. Every moment of every day we are broadcasting some sort of message. What story are you telling right now? Choose to start telling the story of an unconditional, unexpected, undeserving love to all the world.
Spread your seeds that grow the love in everyone you meet.
If birds come along and devour it’s ok. Maybe they’re moving your seed to another location for you. Let it be. Maybe your message was for that bird, we just never know the depth and width the things we say and do travel.
Keep planting your good seeds, keep spreading your message to the world. Let it be your legacy that carries on long after you’re gone. We are all meant to make a difference in this world! Good or bad is up to you.
Don’t worry about the people whose heads are hard as rocks, the people with rocks for hearts, or the people with rocks for brains, ha! your job is to simply plant the seeds. Even if it slides right off their hearts, it may fall underneath and take root later on and fight its way to light and surround them with love at just the right time. Or it may grow right out the top in the tiny amount of soil sitting there, or even better it may split the rock in two and free their heart and soul to be loved again! We aren’t meant to be rocks. (But that’s another story ;))
The thorny, prickly people, may misunderstand the message, but the seeds are still planted, maybe they will choke it out, but maybe… just maybe… it will take root, and grow 10 years down the road. Maybe it will fight up through the shadows and thorny blades on their heart and become the greatest thing in their life one day!
Keep planting until your message falls on the good soil, takes root and changes the world. then there will be no stopping it. It will grow and reproduce like wildfire! And light the hearts and souls of the world!
YOUR MESSAGE IS NEEDED IN THIS WORLD!
So let your message (your heart) grow like a vine! May it be unstoppable, always be strong and bloom & spread like crazy, creating beautiful things! <3
