As with all goals, your goals and dreams for the new year can either bring you joy and a sense of expectation, or they can bring you great anxiety and stress. You can affirm with great faith that you believe and expect your dreams to come true, and take the small steps you know to take while waiting for the larger guidance, or you can look around and say, "Oh its never going to happen. I don't have the time. I don't know what to do. I may as well settle for what I have." Dear ones, all things are possible with God. However we see this all too often. Human beings would rather guarantee their disappointment than risk their success.
If you ask for what you really want in life, this means you will have to take action when guided. It means you may have to change your plans and open your mind as to how your dreams are fulfilled. It means you will have to be patient when not guided and reside in the faith that God and the universe is working on your behalf... no matter what. If you want the outer rewards in life, do the inner work. Then the outer steps you take will be steps taken in grace, in joy, in a sense of rightness and alignment with the universe.
God's love, dear ones, dwells, lives and breathes within you. Will you let it come to the surface? Will you breathe life into your dreams by dreaming them, believing in them, having faith in things unseen? If you can do this, then you will be amazed when you look back upon your life at the end of this year. You will be part of a reality in which miracles are expected in your own life, not just random events that happen for others.
Winter believes in the spring time even when there are no signs of warmth and new life. And yet the minute the sun rises high enough in the sky, this light "guides" the seeds to sprout, the trees to bud, and the birds to start building their nests... all in perfect timing.
God cares about you dear ones - each and every one of you. Believe in that. Live your life as if you knew that you were loved beyond reason, for indeed you are. Live your life as the forest does in the winter, trusting in the warmth and guidance to come, believing that just like the seasons all things will come into your life in perfect timing.
