Sharing with others daily words, thoughts and meditations that bring myself hope and renewal during my own daily battles and frustrations with COPD/Asthma.  Sharing, because as we all know – without that horizon of hope, our daily renewal of faith and fight can dim in a hurry.

Take, read, meditate and hopefully find some of the same hope in your day as I have within mine…..

The Word – “Do not those who plot evil go astray?  But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.”  (Proverbs 14:22, NIV)

The Thought – For us to fulfill our destiny we all need to have a plan, a roadmap to get us from here to there.

We discuss the Great Spirit and how it will give you guidance in doing what is right and planning your future adventures based on the spirit of hope, faith, love and grace.

Those of us with a chronic illness or disability, the idea of planning for the future can appear to be overwhelming, especially if you have an illness or disability that literally can hang on the phrase ‘one day at a time’.

Yet that very same chronic battle or situation you may be in, is exactly why you should and must keep a plan, a roadmap for the days ahead and it must include a positive attitude with piles of love, faith and hope.

Just because you have an illness or disability does not mean you can’t be a very productive individual for family, friends and society to appreciate for whatever the attitude you may bring to the day or moment.

Make use of your best abilities to give hope, faith and grace to the life that surrounds you.  Whether that be volunteer work, crafts, mentoring, tutoring, mechanical, musical, writing or whatever it may be that you find is your most endearing ability or gift to give.

So, plan the path of life ahead of you by using your ability or gift as the head of the adventure, while always basing the plan/adventure on the foundation of hope, faith, love and grace.

By doing so, by making plans, you will find that the Great Spirit will give you the guidance to do good with all of life that surrounds you while also finding that your own battle with a chronic illness or disease will be easier to battle due to the plans you have made.

The Meditation – Oh Great Spirit, as I thank you for all that makes up the world that surrounds me, I also understand that to make plans for my future, I must lean on your friendship and guidance to help keep my mind fresh, my motives positive and my body fresh and renewed.  I look forward to seeking and finding your guidance for all that may lie ahead in this adventure I call life and feel assured that the Great Spirit will give me the strength to make plans and stick with them so that both myself and others can and will be refreshed in life through hope, faith, love and grace.
