Event after negative event
can undermine us as it did
if we get our focus off of the spiritual realities and back
on to the 'ways of the world', which are all the negatives of life,
the worries, the wonderings, doubts, etc.

Decisions to forge ahead are often held back from being made because we
must 'first have all the answers'. Instead of launching our dreams in full
confidence God is with us win or lose and with the knowledge that we are
fully capable of learning as we go along, we set them on the shelf until
we forget about them, until some other interest comes along and takes precedence.

good for us. What's good mean?
This comes not by our own ways.(Proverbs
14:12), but by being aligned with
the real ways of good which reflect the mind and heart of the Creator:.Psalms
Creator is exactly the Creator who created you and His love is infinite.
His simplicity is trusting and He is as simple and transparent
as you have imagined, as you thought about Him before. And He is as kind
and constructive as you knew it before. He is your Creator and He gives
you the way. Go along His way since His way is your way. When one's development
is in alignment with the Creator's purpose of love, you are in harmony
and then each element possesses universal reserve ability, because
