I have a bumper sticker in my office that a Unity friend from the Hilton Head area gave me that reads, “Bless Them All, Let God Sort Them Out”. At first I didn’t know what to do with it. I displayed it on my bookshelf while I was deciding whether it resonated with me or not. I wasn’t sure it sounded very much like Unity thinking but it is a catchy phrase to grab on to when my thoughts get off track and I find myself cursing and blaming rather than blessing and accepting.
As we enter into the New Year we focus on a renewed vision to make our best life yet. I know many of us are focused on healthy bodies. So let me use an analogy of the body. When we bless our food before we eat, we are affirming that what we eat will nourish our bodies. It puts us in a place of allowing our digestive systems to sort out what the body needs and to eliminate what it does not. It also puts our minds into the present moment so that we eat healthfully and in gratitude and we think positive, loving thoughts toward our body. God in us is sorting out that which we ate because we recognized God in it by blessing it.
This week as you actively think about your life, your goals and your relationships, bless them all and let the God in you sort out your thoughts and guide you to the best life yet.
Love and God Bless,
