Spend What You Have

“I will use that which I have.

Whatever wisdom,creativity, and faith is mine—-I will use it to its fullest extent.

Knowing that when I use what I have been given, my Source, will amplify and increase….with more wisdom, creativity, and faith.

I do not wait for more to begin my journey, to live my life, to use my gifts.

I EXHAUST what I have knowing that this is how it works.”

Give and more shall be given.
Exercise my measure of faith.
Plan as far as I am able and can see—and when I get to the next turn I  will be able to see further.
Start with where I am and what I have.

When we wish for a firmer body, more flexibility and greater energy—we don’t wait for our body to feel that before we begin.  We begin using  what firmness, flexibility and energy that we possess in the present to arrive at the place of more.  Through the doing, the increase we desire is given.

“I start with my measure of faith to believe as much as I can that all things work together for my good.

I start with the peace that I can find and step into that peace—that piece of peace.

I look at whatever hope I have and give thanks for it—I nurture that hope.  I use it to hope for more.

I use what peace I have to gather more.  I use what peace I have to calm my soul and to calm others.

I use up my faith that it might be added to by God.”

Spend what you have—-out of these moments deep souls are rebirthed.

For in the hope of a few lie the hope of many.

In the grain of mustard seed faith, mountains are moved.

Peace embraced grows into peace that surpasses all understanding.

Spend, grow, spend, grow.

Use it all up that you may experience increase.

Sow all your small seeds of faith, hope, and peace so that you will harvest huge crops of these very things.

Spend what you have.

I sometimes write things for myself that I end up sharing with you.  This is one of those things 😉  We worry that we are not enough and so we wait, not using up that which we already possess.  More things can’t flow in until we release what we already have.

Fears of not being creative…enough, not being original…enough, not being unique….enough, not being lovable….enough.
We are simply enough—and the only way to grow in the areas that we desire is to spend what we have already been given.

The universe flows in to fill the vacuum 😉

Go spend all of you today.  All of your amazing love, your creativity, your beauty, your hope, and your peace.
Make room for even more in your life.

It’s time to go on a spending spree!

    You know what ‘devil with the tongue’ you are! Hummm….I think I like ‘Wordsmith’ better! You express what most creative people think but cant verbalize and you are a master at expressing yourself! Your posts are a highlight to my days!And as Sharon G said, “I’m printing this to hang in my studio”.
    It gives me pause to reflect!!! That is always a good thing!
    Hugs Friend!!!
