why self-love is a gift from God

What does it really mean to have a healthy sense of self-love? It requires us to give ourselves a break when we make mistakes. After, mistakes are simply opportunities for learning and growth.
When we love and value ourselves, we are more likely to follow our hearts instead of our endless lists of fears, excuses, and self-doubt. When we learn to love ourselves more, we stop taking action from a place of obligation.
Lastly, when we become more loving and compassionate toward ourselves, it becomes easier to see the divinity in everything. We become happier and more peaceful. How can you love and value yourself even more today than you did yesterday?

What does it mean to have faith?

Often, especially if we are dealing with life’s challenges, we are encouraged to have faith. So, what does it mean to have faith?
Does it require church attendance or worshipping a higher power? Does it require us to blindly follow someone else’s teachings?
Perhaps having faith means expecting a higher power to act on our behalf without any effort on our part.
While you may have your own perception of what it means to have faith, here is what I’ve learned through my own experience.If I receive divine guidance and wait for something to manifest without acting upon that guidance, that is not having faith because I expected the spirit world to do the work for me.
Instead, having faith requires that I trust the guidance that I am given, act on it, and then allow myself to receive. Sometimes, that is easier said then done, but in the end, it is always worth my time and effort.

God’s provision

I attended a private Catholic college which happened to be very expensive. Each semester, there was some concern over how to pay my tuition without taking out more student loans.
At the end of each semester, I would repeat the ritual of saying goodbye to my friends because I wasn’t sure if my grades or financial situation would allow me to return. However, I was taught that if I prayed for something and it was meant to happen, God and the universe would provide. Well, that’s exactly what happened.
Whenever we are in need, the first thing to do is ask the universe. However, be mindful of what you’re asking for because the universe always says yes.
