Rest and recreation

God supports you dear ones. Even when you don't know how to achieve a goal, God does. Even when you don't know how to pay a bill, God does. Even when you don't know how to protect your children, God already knows they are His first.

All the answers, all the guidance lie within. However, there are times when you will not receive guidance and rather than driving yourselves crazy with worry, sit quietly and instead ask a different question. "God, I am not receiving guidance towards my prayers and my goals. Is there anything you want me to do today or is it in your hands?" Ask this dear ones. If you receive no answer, then trust that today God is handling your prayers.

So many of you worry so much about missing your guidance, but if you pray with sincerity, listen in silence, and honor your hearts, you won't miss any of the messages that God intends for you. God, dear ones, has ways of making sure you will get His messages. The question is never whether or not you will receive the message. The question is whether or not you will listen. If the answer to your question, "God what should I do today to further my prayers?" is nothing - silence - then dear ones, there is nothing you need to be concerned about today.

Instead, take time in your spare time to relax and refill your spirit. Time for relaxation, play, and recreation is absolutely necessary. Recreation dear ones, allows RE-Creation to occur.

When you allow yourselves the time to refresh and replenish your spirit you are in the present, less worried, and more aligned with the higher vibrations of peace and joy. When you allow yourselves recreation you are, in a sense, getting your worry out of the way and allowing God to solve the problems in your lives. You are surrendering to your hearts. You are surrendering to joy. You are surrendering to the natural childlike qualities of innocence, trust, and adventure. You are opening to life.

Recreation and rest, dear friends, need not occur on a faraway beach, and they need not involve expensive toys. You did not require more than your imaginations to play and enliven your spirit as a child. You can sit on your couch or lie in your bed and travel with your imagination to faraway places. You can daydream of the adventures you wish to live out some day. You can spin fantastic fantasies while talking with friends.

Recreation, whether real or imagined, is priceless to the soul. It is the time in which you allow your minds to rest, your hearts to be filled, and God to work His magic in your lives.

Earth needs your peace. Earth needs your joy. Earth needs you to fill your spirit so you can help others up rather than being mired down in the worlds fears. Far from being a waste of time, recreation is to your spirit the same as putting gas in your vehicles. Fill your souls dear ones, then spill this joy over into a world that needs to imagine a greater way of being.
