Life is filled with times when we have to make decisions. We can choose a life that is meaningless and pointless or we can choose a life of greatness. Greatness doesn’t mean doing huge and sensational acts. It is not what we do, but how we do it. We can choose to do small things in great ways.

Before making even small decisions, always go to God for the answer. Don’t run around asking anyone and everyone what you should do. You already know the answer to your problem. The answer is always within. Ask God what your next move should be. Then listen. Listen for the “still small voice.” Listen and pay attention. Meditate and pray over it. Then release it and don’t worry about it.

Something within you will make the change from not being sure to knowing what move is right for you to make. You will feel the shift from doubt and indecision to knowing. You will know what to do, and there will be no doubt in your mind. In truth you already know. The God presence within you knows.
When you are in the midst of the situation and cannot come to peace with it, go to a counselor for help in coming to the right decision. If one counselor doesn’t help you, don’t give up, find the right counselor and he or she will help you come to your own right conclusion.
Affirmation: listen to my inner guidance and I know that God is guiding me to make the right decision.




“What is fear of need but need itself.” Kahlil Gibran

I’ve reread The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. As I read it and read it  again  I  find  more and more wisdom in every paragraph. When we are open to it, wisdom is available to us.

“First Prize” rose Gail’s Garden
Gibran also wrote “Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.”  There is polarity in everything in life. I think this is what Gibran is talking about in this quote.
At the lowest end of this pole is sorrow, but at the highest is joy. So take a look at where you are in your life. Are you on the sorrow end of the pole or the Joy? There’s a lot in between too.  You have the ability to choose. You can decide  where you want to live.

I am choosing joy.

Gail Manishor, RScP



Our good comes to us at the right time and in the perfect way. Our life always develops in God’s perfect timing. When we learn to trust God and relax into the peace of Spirit, we learn to let go and allow our life to work for us. We are rewarded in a far greater way than we would have first imagined. God is Infinite Wisdom and is indwelling within each of us. That wisdom is always available to us. Know now that God wants all that is good and perfect for us.”

I used to be a worrier. Through the years of study, meditation and prayer I’ve learned to trust in the process of life. I’ve learned that I am strong and capable of handling life as it comes. What is true for me is also true for you. You have all of the courage, all of the strength you need to move through whatever difficulties arise on your path. You have a deep reservoir of strength and you can trust yourself to handle what needs to be done.          

When troubles or roadblocks come up on our path, when we are worried or concerned, that is the time to put our trust in the Divine Presence, in Spirit, and know that we can now relax knowing that God is in charge. We can let go and trust in the knowledge that everything’s going to be okay.          

I know that whatever happens, God means it for good, and I now place my trust in the Divine Presence.
I have the strength and courage to go on. There is a brighter day ahead for me.
