You Can Thrive In This New Normal! You Absolutely Can!

Today when I entered the balcony it was like entering a secret garden, entering another dimension. It was not my first time going on the balcony. But first time experiencing entering a secret garden. I have always loved nature and it inspires me. But… feeling you have entered a secret garden? That is something else! […]

Today when I entered the balcony it was like entering a secret garden, entering another dimension. It was not my first time going on the balcony. But first time experiencing entering a secret garden. I have always loved nature and it inspires me. But… feeling you have entered a secret garden? That is something else!

God has said He will do “something new”. Isaiah 43. I have read it before, but it never caught my attention until a few days ago. “ I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness  and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people”

 Desert, is somewhere parched, so thirsty for freshwater. Have we been parched? Thirsty for freshwater? To play in? To drink? To swim in? Water is life, a source of joy. All civilizations are beside the water, even a well of water. Maybe we have been thirsty. Thirsty to slow down, to have better relationships, better communication with our loved ones, to have more peace and joy in our lives.

 I have been praying “ Let me see wonderful things about your law”. Nature is beautiful and I have always loved it. Recently I have slowed down more thanks to this new situation. I think more, about sophistication and the beauty of nature. When I go to the balcony I can hear 5, 6 different birds chirping, see so many colors in trees and flowers,  breath, and feel the air on my skin. It all is God’s beautiful creation. I heard Rick Warren said on his podcast that “God overdoses in variety!” He does! And I am so glad He does. 

So dear one do not panic, do not get anxious when looking at this new situation. If God brings so many flowers and birds and has made your body( and let me tell you from the perspective of a physician who has studied human anatomy, immunology, physiology, embryology and so much more, YOU ARE MADE SO AMAZINGLY!), then He is so much more resourceful than just letting us be in this situation. 

I have been listening to the audiobook of Law of Attraction, Ask and It Will Be Given. If you think it is a woohooery, and just something warm and fuzzy or superstitious, bear with me. Thanks to Jen Sincero, and her amazing book, and program, my mindset has grown a lot. Then I picked up this book. We are so much more capable than we think we are. If you want to listen to radio station 107 FM and you tune into 115 FM you definitely will miss your station. The same is with life.

So If you have been thirsty for peace, joy, being loved, better communication and relationships, and spending more time with your loved ones, I want to encourage you to look at this situation with new eyes. Do not see that as limiting or frustrating, but see the treasures hidden in it.
