You have a strength of your own to do all that is necessary.

“The gardener goes forth in faith to sow his seeds. He has learned that as he sows, so shall he reap… If we can conceive only a little good, that is as much as we can experience. We must instill into the mind the fundamental proposition that good is without bounds. Let us realize and work with this sound knowledge and perfect faith: That as high as we shall make our mark in Mind and Spirit, so high shall be Its outward manifestation in our material world.”

“You have a strength of your own that is great enough to do all that is necessary. The Almighty has implanted genius within the soul of everyone and what we need to do is to unearth that inner genius and cause it to shine forth…  All the power and intelligence of the Universe is already within, waiting to be utilized. Self-reliance is the word to dwell on. Listen to your own voice; it will speak in terms that are unmistakable. Trust in your own self more than in all else.” Ernest Holmes

From Love it.

Today I will be very honest, I hit a brick wall. I deflated and faith strength courage disappeared like a balloon twirling away with the air futzing (not sure if that is a word) out. I sat on the floor and sobbed, you know ladies the kind where you cannot stop until there is nothing left. My wonderful dog Tucker came over to comfort me and I held him because I knew I was entering a dark place. As the darkness faded and energy started to fill my body again a little voice said ‘you finished?feel better?now Listen. It took getting back up off the floor and calming my mind but I listened.  The message I got is there is enough for me. I am not alone. I am everything I need. All is really,I mean really, well.

Everyone hits the wall and sometimes we need to let everything go. Being in control is an illusion. Being who we are reality, your reality. Listen to the voice inside; it will speak in terms that are unmistakable. Trust the answer. This quote on the brick wall summed it up for me. What about you? Any brick walls?
