digging deeper

i read this and thought it was absolutely beautiful 
and wanted to share with you all 
we are all divinely connected, despite the time and distance. not everyone is in tune with it and in our modern day world, most of us will lose ourselves in the day to day busy life, getting lost in the material things of this world, making a living, stressful situations that need to be resolved, etc… is this really why we are here on this earth? or, do we dig deeper to find our true calling, our soul purpose?

get past the superficiality and listen to the quiet still voice of God. God brings signs to us all the time.  just hiking outdoors in beautiful nature,  you can find peace. in that quiet place, listen and watch for clues all around you. appreciate the little simple things. pick and smell the sweet fragrance of a flower, admire the sunshine rays beaming down on you, listen to the water flowing down a river or creek. in these places, you will recognize God’s peace and glean amazing ideas on how to fulfill your dreams and mission. it is good to take a step back and reflect on your life. don’t get caught up in stressing over the hustle and bustle of daily routine and obligations.. it is important to keep a good work ethic, but how do you carry it out more effectively and peacefully without stressing about every detail? mahatma gandhi said, “each one has to find his peace from within. and peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.” it is better to get things done as best you can, while still keeping your inner peace. then let go and go with the flow. you will find all that you may be working on will come naturally, without any worry and without forcing things to happen. you may have to overcome obstacles, but know in your heart, God is bringing you all the positive people and resources to help you get through it. stay positive and hopeful. keep the faith and have an understanding that God will bring things to fruition all at the right time. let go and let God is a popular saying and a very true statement. just let it happen, when it is supposed to. 
 you will find that the results you achieve will be much more fulfilling.
...do you 'dig deeper' on a regular basis...
what's your soul purpose in life?
i have decided to ponder this over the next few weeks
and will be sharing my personal results with you all soon
in addition, i would love to hear your thoughts
{planning to share some of yours as well- thanks in advance}

  1. I absolutely love this post! I am definitely guilty of getting caught up in the day to day sometimes and not listening to God as quietly as I should. I think I'm going to challenge myself to do this as well!

  2. Love this post! I totally get caught up in the grind of the day or even the week that I forget to just sit down and be still. Sometimes I think I'm so guilty of trying to make my purpose happen so badly that I forget that God needs to be involved in the process.

  3. I definitely feel closer to God when I'm out in nature and being in the moment. It's so important to stay connected with your spirit. I actually just wrote something very similar. I am a true believer in the power of prayer. <3

  4. Beautiful post, great reminder of the importance of slowing down and appreciating each moment!

  5. I'm sure you're familiar but I read A Purpose Driven Life for a small group once and it was the best read. I found that throughout my reading I was better able to define what my purpose is and God's purpose for my life. I agree that we need to slow down from time to time and revel in God's creation. This helps me stay centered :)
