Five Keys to Access Your Assets

Do you achieve the goals that you set out to achieve? Take some personal inventory. What are your beliefs, and what are you thinking about all day? What we pay attention to is what flourishes in our lives. If what you are receiving is not what you want in your life, it is time to make a change. Become acquainted with yourself and take ownership of your life. Change your future and your circumstances. Ignite your fire within and gain access to the tools to change your life; thoughts and beliefs are what help you to achieve the manifestation of success, good health, wellbeing, joy, peace of mind, and experience miracles. Here are five keys to access your assets and manifest your desires:

  • Meditation is the key to connect the mind to the soul.
  • Visualization is the key to activate the video within your minds’ eye; view your desire in vivid images.
  • Prayer is the key to communicate; build a relationship with your Creator.
  • Intuition is the key to your inner whisper: a feeling, a hunch or an instinct.
  • Affirmation is the key that confirms that your goal is achievable.

I invite you to share how you will incorporate these five keys into your daily life to achieve your desires.

At Your Service

The-purpose-of-human-life-is-to-serve-and-to-show-compassion-and-the-will-to-help-others-quotes. 

 

“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” Galatians 5:13 (check NIV).

I always had a deep desire to be of service. In church, I was introduced to a prayer group. I joined immediately. The group taught me how to pray and gave me many opportunities to pray for others. We prayed for each other, and I soon learned, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17 NIV. I then decided that prayer would become my ministry. Thus, I wanted to delve deeper into the ministry of prayer. I found a mentor and fervently studied prayer. After years of practice, I joined the Guideposts Prayer Ministry, to be of service.

    ~~~

       “PLEASE HELP ME,” pleaded the caller. “I can’t take it anymore.”

Her voice was breaking up. I listened intently. She told me her name was Mary. She was in her early fifties, worked as a home health provider, but was unable to work because of a job-related leg injury.

Mary spoke rapidly, “I’m so full of despair that I decided to dial the Guideposts Prayer Line.”

“I’m glad you did, Mary. How may I pray for you today?”

“My temporary disability payments are less than half of my regular pay, and this leaves me without enough money to pay my bills. I have been juggling my good faith payments on my overdue bills, but I am not able to keep them up. In addition, the week before I was to report to work, I hurt myself again.”

“While waiting for another claim to be processed, my funds were exhausted. My creditors were threatening to cut off my utilities. I had almost accepted the possibility of living without these essentials.”

Mary went on to tell me that the notice placed on her door made her even more desperate. She said she broke down and cried as she read the flier. The apartment building in which she had lived for more than thirty years was no longer going to be rent controlled. It was going co-op.

I silently thanked God for giving me her call. In my professional career as a social worker, I had heard this problem hundreds of times. I knew how to help her. I yearned to give Mary the information I had at my fingertips, but there was something stopping me.

It was the Guidepost Prayer Ministry guidelines.

The Holy Spirit reminded me that I was a prayer intercessor and that it was my job to pray to the Lord on the caller’s behalf. No advice whatsoever was to be given—that was God’s job. Therefore, I prayed and went on to my next caller.

Week after week, Mary called, sounding progressively more defeated. It was becoming more difficult to decipher her words through her sobs. My heart ached for her.

By the time the seventh week rolled around, I had made up my mind that I was going to give her some advice—after all, hadn’t I worked as a social worker for fifteen years?

However, the words I had read in the Guidepost guidelines—“We are not a counseling line”—played themselves repeatedly in my mind. I put my decision on pause and prayed for myself, but the urge to intervene grew even stronger….
