Follow through on inspiration

by Ralph Marston

It’s good to be inspired, but merely being inspired is not enough. Get inspired, and then follow through on that inspiration.

Inspiration without action is wasted. Not only that, but with no action the inspiration itself soon turns sour.

Don’t waste the inspiration and don’t waste the opportunity. Do the hard work, take the difficult actions, meet the challenges with inspired effort.

Let inspiration lead you to take the first step. Keep renewing and refreshing that inspiration as you persist through every effort.

When you add action to inspiration, you get even more inspiration. And, you get results.

Get yourself inspired, then do something with that inspiration by acting on it. Discover how very far your inspired effort will take you.

Mental momentum

by Ralph Marston

Which direction is your mental momentum headed? Are your thoughts joining together to support you or to hinder you?

Life has its ups and downs, its possibilities and problems. Which aspects are you focusing most of your mental energy around?

You’re constantly creating elaborate scenarios about life that exist solely in your mind. Those scenarios, that mental momentum, can push your real-world life in a variety of directions.

If you seek to gather evidence that all of life is against you, you’ll find it in abundance. Negative mental momentum will lend a destructive, neglectful, dejected flavor to all you do.

Choose instead to construct a scenario around the positive possibilities. Be thankful for the best that has been, imagine the best that can happen, and continue using the power of your thoughts to add details and substance.

Your actions, your effectiveness, your results are influenced by the mental state you’re in. Maintain positive mental momentum and the benefits will flow to every part of your life.

Positive contribution to the future

by Ralph Marston

Look beyond the desires of the moment. Turn your attention toward the long-term desires, plans, hopes, dreams for your life.

Stop being such a slave to whatever you want right now. Free yourself to be the master of what your life is like tomorrow, next month, five years from now.

In twenty minutes, the latest buzz will have already been forgotten. Yet what you garner from a good book or a heartfelt conversation will stay with you for twenty years.

Use right now to make a positive contribution to the future, your future, the world’s future. Take the actions today that will have the biggest benefits later, and you improve both the present and the future.

What you grab quickly goes away quickly. Yet what you patiently, persistently give to life grows more valuable as time goes on.

Breathe in the beauty, wonder, abundance and opportunity of now. With your actions, direct all that energy toward creating an even better future.

Gift of achievement

by Ralph Marston
Decide right now to make this commitment. Promise yourself that in one hour you’ll look back on the previous hour with great satisfaction.

Schedule yourself, just an hour from now, to be grateful and excited about what you’ve just done. Then get busy and create that positive moment.

Give yourself the gift of achievement. Watch yourself, feel the satisfaction, as you get good things done.

Experience the power of your own focus. Stay centered on the specific difference you’ve chosen to make.

Boost your confidence, your optimism, your attitude and your effectiveness. Invest the next hour becoming a more positive and accomplished version of you.

That investment begins paying dividends immediately, and for a long time to come. Make the commitment, do the work, and enjoy the rewards you’re already earning.

Enthusiasm and energy

by Ralph Marston

Your life deserves all the enthusiasm and energy you can give it. So without waiting another moment, give it, and keep giving it.

Be a positive presence in your own life, your own thoughts, your own actions. Be a positive influence for people and situations you encounter.

Imagine the best that can happen, and then take vigorous steps in that direction. Visualize pure, unrestrained joy and then let that joy emerge from your vision out into your life.

Let go of the tired old thought patterns that keep you feeling worried and hesitant. Think of what it would mean right now to live with boldness and enthusiasm, then do it.

Your time is too precious to let even a few moments slip away without putting all of yourself into them. The possibilities are too splendid to ignore.

You have the power to energize your whole world. Activate that power, create that energy, and do all the great things today you know you can do.

Creative ideas

by Ralph Marston
Ideas flow into your awareness. Pay attention, and give them some respect.

The ideas you create come from the life you live, from the problems you encounter, from the values you hold. That makes them quite valuable and appropriate for you.

Don’t discount ideas just because they come from you, or just because they seem silly. Though they won’t all be workable, each one has something to tell you.

You are a highly creative being. And your creativity is specifically targeted to your own unique situation.

Creativity is not just about directing films or painting pictures. Creativity helps you in every moment to make the most of life.

Accept those creative ideas as they flow into your awareness. Grab the good ones and follow through, adding great beauty and goodness to your world.

Faith Page Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine
September 20, 2016

It seems like at the end of every summer someone is always saying: “Where did summer go?” We all take advantage of the longer days, maybe time away from work or school and the fun things to do. We make the actual choice to spend our time however we want. Nature does not. Nature just does what it does every year, cycle to the next phase. In a few weeks the leaves will begin turning colors and we will enjoy that too, but that will happen again next year. Nature just keeps on doing what it was designed to do. As people, we make our choices. We decide what to eat, where to go, what to wear… The question is: are our choices as beautiful as nature’s? How long does it take for us to decide what type of coffee we would like to buy or which job offer to accept? Of course our decisions are not automatic like the rhythmic cycle of nature. But upon what do we base our choices? Do we ever consider what God would want us to do or is the prestige and bigger salary the deciding factor? God only wants what is good for us so somehow we have to plug into what God would like us to do. We do that by a conversation. That is called prayer. Take some time out to talk to God and sincerely listen to His Word. Make sure you are not talking to yourself because then you just get caught up spinning your wheels.

Bible Vs.: Psalm 16: 1-3 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord, I have no good apart from you.” As for the saints in the land, they are the noble, in whom is my delight.

Prayer: O Lord let me allow you into my life without conditions. Let me hear your voice and follow your commands. Let me praise you and adore you and let me be your sign on this earth. Amen

Spotlight: Come and visit Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine at 21281 Chardon Rd. Sunday, October 2nd there will be a Fall Festival. Come and pray, eat and have fun! There will be a homemade bake sale, religious gift shop, homemade crafts, a fishpond, a game on wheels, a pizza and sausage stand. Masses are 8:00 AM. 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM. There will be 3:00 PM Stations of the Cross, 4:00 PM Rosary followed by Benediction.
