Your Best Life Now


How May I Know When I’m Truly Living By Faith?

posted by smcswain

You are thinking that what has happened to you is a “failure.” Right?

Think again.

Could it be, as someone has put it, that “what you perceive as a failure is simply life unfolding in a new direction?”

Can you wrap your mind around that question? Will you entertain this possibility?  That what you now feel is a huge setback is really just a step in a new direction?

In other words, what would happen if you viewed what was happening right now, not as some unwanted experience you must resist – which, of course, you are – but, instead, it is the very thing that must happen in order for Life itself to carry you toward your intended destiny?

Let me ask it another way:  Can you trust that your life is unfolding just as it is supposed to unfold? And, how do you know if you are now living from a place of trust? Peace and tranquility? Knowing inside, you cannot explain what’s happening, but you simply trust that life is as it should be?  How do you know when you are living by faith?

When you no longer have to ask the question.

Walk with God...Mindfulness in Action
To walk with God is the goal of human life. What this means to Christians is not so different than what "mindfulness" means to practitioners of eastern traditions. Many of you know I wrote a book about walking with God. It is entitled The Enoch Factor: The Sacred Art of Knowing God. It's all abou

Faith...It's Hard and Difficult and Not for the Faint-of-Heart
Faith is hard work. Hard won, too. "Just believe!" say some. After all, didn't Jesus say, "Become as a little child?" (Matt. 18:3). If, by faith, you are talking about - and, many Christians are - subscribing to a neatly packaged box of propositional statements, then yes, of course, faith is n

Because I'm Happy...Clap Along If You Feel Like...
"Because I'm happy...clap along..." Pharrel Williams sings it. "Because I'm happy...clap along..." Miss America sings it. "Because I'm happy...clap along..." We all sing it. Frankly, I've heard the popular song so much on the radio and television, I'm ready for a new song. Which IS the prob
