Going On Strike

From time to time, I go through a feeling of frustration that things are not moving fast enough or I'm not seeing more evidence of God's Love. To help me get out of that mindset, I usually re-read articles of my personal experiences that demonstrate Love.

So yesterday while I was feeling that frustration, I re-read an article I wrote a while back called: Why Nothing is Impossible with Spirit. That didn't help matters. I was still feeling frustrated. It was as if I was feeling the frustration of everyone in the world in similar situations.

I put out an intent that I want to see greater demonstrations of "nothing is impossible with Spirit." I said I am not interested in reading spiritual theories, doctrines, intellectual understanding of God, and more channelled material about Love, I want to experience those demonstrations here and now. I was also "going on strike" and not going to write any more articles until I experience evidence that I can share.

I was then inspired to read another piece I'd written about unconditional love called: Water Off a Duck's Back - Revisited, but that didn't help much either.

Next, I looked up the 24th Book of the Bible which happens to be Jeremiah. 24 represents the day I was born. I read chapter 8, which represents the month I was born. Funnily enough in Jeremiah Chapter 8 the writer is expressing his frustration about not seeing demonstrations of God's love. The final verses of that chapter of the King James Version goes:
[21] For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me.
[22] Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered? Jeremiah 8: 11-12
In the middle of last night I woke up and felt a hand giving me adjustments that reminded me of a chiropractor's treatment. (The reason why I know this is because I used to have a boyfriend who was a chiropractor and he used to give me adjustments. After all that stretching, I reckon I grew 2 inches taller during our relationship). :-) It was weird feeling my back and hips being adjusted by this invisible hand. Well, I did ask for demonstrations, didn't I? The tightness hasn't all gone yet though.

The other thing that happened last night was I kept having this thought that the Light in me is shining so bright I'm reaching all parts of the entire universe. I even told myself to radiate light by smiling, which I did.

Today, I received an email from a friend with the subject: "Jeremiah 29:11." The full verse reads:
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29: 11
Here's the content of the email:
Jeremiah 29:11 "for I know the plans I have for YOU, declares the LORD" OUR GOD/Goddess All That IS.

"Never give the devil a ride, he will want to take over the driving."

Dear Woman of God. Be still for a while and praise GodwithinUS for His/Her favor, His/Her grace and His/Her awesomeness. GodwithinUS is able to do the impossible and is always near SHe loves us unconditionally. Together, let's get 1000 ladies to praise Him/her with one voice in this next hour.

Please forward this to every woman you want GodinUS to Bless.

Dear GodwithinUs: this is my friend, whom I love and this is my prayer for her. Help her live her life to the fullest.

Please promote her and cause her to excel above her expectations.

Help her to shine in the darkest places where it is impossible to love.

Protect her at all times, lift her up when she needs You the most, and let her know when she walks with You, She will always be safe.

Love you Girl!

Tell nine sisters you love them.

Get going girl!! Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your fingers Right Now.
It's interesting how part of the email had mirrored my thoughts (words in blue) from yesterday. Is this just a coincidence or could my friend's email be God's way of meeting my demands? ;-)

The friend who sent me the email said she didn't want to forward it to me because she knows how much I hate those kinds of "pass it on" emails. I told her I usually file them under "T" for Trash but for some reason I was inspired to not only read it, I even forwarded it to my friends (male and female). I'm glad I did.

So I was on strike but I've now come out of strike as I believe God has met a few of my demands. We have now entered peaceful negotiations for a much better deal. We'll see how that goes.

Wishing everyone greater demonstrations of Infinite Love in action.
