Maybe you’re the type of person that thinks a good excuse is the sincerest of excuses. Maybe you’re the type of person that goes to church on Sunday out of obligation, not because it makes any sense or helps you feel connected with like-minded people. But regardless of your religious affiliations, probably everyone can agree that a good excuse is an important part of being able to keep your Sunday morning blessings coming. Especially if you struggle with anything related to trust or forgiveness – because let’s be honest, what’s more difficult than making an excuse and actually feeling like it? This year, create some time to spend with your friends and family this sacred day by looking forward to these must-have blessings from The Bible: Must-Have Sunday Blessings Images To Brighten Your Weekend.
Focus On The Good
Let’s face it: When you make the most of every day, goodness often shows up in ways you never expected. If you were always the one making excuses for the things you didn’t do, you may want to take a look around you and see if you’re the cause of any of this good fortune. You may have been blessing the wrong people. You may be the cause of your own unhappiness. Perhaps it’s time to take a look at what you’re taking advantage of and see if you can give that back.
Getting in touch with your own needs and desires can feel scary. But if you’re willing to do so, it can also feel incredibly liberating. If you’ve been blessing the wrong people, perhaps you’re in need of blessing yourself. You may want to take some time to think about what you need. And then, maybe, you can give it to someone else.
Trust is one of the most important values in any relationship. Without it, nothing else matters – both for the people you trust and for the relationship itself. If you’ve been on the receiving end of bad treatment, it may be time to rediscover the person you were trusting in the first place. Trust needs to be built on strong foundations. If you’re willing to take a look around you and see if you trust anyone, maybe you need to start there. There are bound to be people in your life who you need to trust – and deserve to trust – but who haven’t been able to earn your trust. Perhaps they’ve treated you badly in the past, or maybe you just don’t know them well enough to trust them. Whatever the case may be, it’s time to start working on trust again.
Open-Minded And Understanding
We’re going to make this one easy – open your mind, open your heart, and open your soul. It may feel uncomfortable to open up and share parts of yourself that you’ve been keeping secret for a long time. It may feel like an admission of failure or shame. But if you’re willing to do so, it will also feel incredibly liberating. When you open yourself up to the possibility of being mistaken – which is to say, you open yourself up to the possibility of being wrong – then you can start to search for the truth. You can start to ask the questions that need to be asked. You can start to rebuild your trust in people again. You can start to imagine a new future for yourself that’s full of opportunity and love.
Celebrate The Small Things
Nothing is as valuable as time. So spend as little time as possible on the things that don’t matter. Do your best not to add to the pile of stress and negativity that’s already weighing you down. If you’ve been going through a hard time, it’s likely that there will be good times and bad times. But spending as few minutes as possible worrying about the past or the future will help you feel more centered and able to focus on the here and now.
The last thing you want to do on Sunday morning is sit down and list all the things that you’re thankful for. Because then, of course, you’ve got nothing else to focus on. And yet, writing these down can feel so good. You can take them out of thevirtualafghan and feel their warmth and power in your hands. You can smell the lavender in the room, and hear the raindrops on the roof. You can feel the sun on your skin, and see the beauty and peace that fills the room. On this special day, spend time with the people you love. Spend time with yourself. Spend time with the people that you need to be with. Blessings,
