Bless a Thing & It Will Bless You!

"Bless a thing and it will bless you. Curse it and it wil curse you...If you bless a situation, it has no power to hurt you, and even if it is troublesome for a time, it will gradually fade out, if you sincerely bless it." Emmet Fox

As ironic as it seems, this is a beneficial and integral step in dealing with life's day-to-day problems.  Sarah Ban Breathnach says in one of her wonderful books, "Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort & Joy", that by doing this simple act, we surrender ourselves as well as our problems to a Higher Power to be solved. It is as if saying, "Let Thy will be done." 

In blessing a situation, any situation in fact, you enable yourself to "accept" your life and all that's in it for what it truly is.  When I say "accept", I most certainly do not mean to condone negativity or brutality in ANY form. "Acceptance" in the sense that you have faith that a Higher Power or your Heavenly Father will work it out; that all the wrinkles of your crumbled piece of paper called your life will be ironed smooth.  Hebrews 11:1 says, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

You may ask belligerently, "How in the world can I bless THAT?", but not notice the paradox.  By blessing a circumstance, you then rid yourself of the anxieties, frustrations and other detrimental emotions that it envokes.  Not only that, but in doing this, you also take the intense pressure off of the person or situation at hand and are able to view things finally from "outside of the box". 

Oftentimes we cannot see clearly of a dilemna until we can bless it and let it go.  Take the time to think of all that you wish to be different or better in your life and bless all that you now have. Let it go and have faith that all will be worked out. Everything in it's own time.
