What do you Need?


Do you ever stop and think about what you need for today.  There are many a day when I need a number of things to get me through the day–a huge dose of patience along with a heaping of courage.  It is easy to believe that you need a particular person to be in your life in order to “feel complete”.  It is not always easy to step out of a situation and see what is really going on and what is in your best interest.  Often our needs are driven by fear.  Imagine going through life feeling complete yet being open to possibilities for enhancing your current situation if fear was not part of the equation.  I have found that my neediness has driven away possibilities (both in business and life).  Nobody is attracted to a needy business partner or lover.  Imagine how attractive someone is when they are confident in who they already are and open to the possibilities of even something greater.

For me I have learned over the years that what I need ….

….is to love people for who they are

….to have hope in what is yet to come into my life

….to have faith in God’s promises

….to have patience and trust in God’s timing

….to seek to understand instead of trying to be understood

….to find peace in those quiet moments

….to never stop having passion for what I believe in

….to see how much healing is going on all around me

….to find strength to stay on the path that God wants me to be on

….to see the beauty that is in all things; and

….to have the freedom to live a life full of love and joy.

Sure there are days when I need a hug, word of encouragement, or just someone to make me smile.  The best part is that God knows exactly what you need for today and he wants to give you the desires of your heart.  I absolutely love those beautiful moments when people come into your life and you get what you need.  Lately I am finding life can be so interesting in the not knowing of what is yet to come and being okay and not attached to any particular outcome.  I think we are all on our own unique adventures.  How much we enjoy and get out of it depends upon whether we travel it with a sense of desperation or wonder.  Let’s all fill it with the possibilities and have what we need for today to live LIFE!
