Life is Good

By Barbara Mark & Trudy Griswold

Life is a diving board, not a plank.

Not long ago, the angels gave us this wonderful message when we were worried about something we were afraid was going to happen. It is easy to get the “dreads” when life is not going our way. Fear enters and we no longer expect good things. This wonderful quote from our angels reminded us to look at life as pleasurable, rather than a disaster.

“Worry is the indefinable feeling that God doesn’t know what He’s doing” is another quote we like. You can bet that when fear comes in, wanting control is with it. God becomes distant. We have begun to “take over” and when we do that, we are lost and afraid. Peace of mind becomes history.

The Angels Speake:
Dear Ones. It is amazing to us that you find fear in so many places. Fear is an opinion only, and most of the fears that attach to you have nothing to do with reality. We can see the bigger picture, and we know you make up the most amazing stories to bring fear to yourself.

Here are some things we observe. Your spouse is late. Is it just traffic? Or is he dead in a wreck? Your child gets a runny nose. Is he catching cold? Or is this pneumonia? You avoid people because they might be mad at you. You buy things you cannot pay for. You do not watch the time, so you have to rush. You will not tell someone you love him or her because they might not love you back.

So many scenarios are created every day to keep fear alive and healthy in your life. Why are you doing this to yourself?

There are many reasons. Number one is poor self-esteem. When you think you are less than others, you believe that you are going to get hurt in some way. Your boss has more authority than you, therefore he can hurt you by firing you or denying you benefits you need, thus you fear him. Your parents have said terrible things to you in the past; therefore you avoid them because they may do so again. Bad experiences have made you wary and avoiding. You begin to live in a smaller world when you are fearful.

The words of fear are: might, maybe, perhaps, could, should, and can’t. Others fit too, but when you are living in the future where fear always resides, these are the words that come when thoughts of fear enter. These are restricting words. There is no freedom in fear.

Life is good. Ask us to help you stop thinking it isn’t. Ask us to take away your fearful thoughts and to replace them with happy ones. Imagined difficulties are just that—imagined. Be fearful only in the now when fear is appropriate to keep you safe.

Y2K is a prime example of how people can work themselves into a huge state of frenzy by being afraid of the future. Millions of people wouldn’t even leave their homes on one of the grandest nights of their lives. New Years Eve, 2000, a new millennium was being born and people huddled in their homes surrounded by survival supplies and waited for cold and dark to enter. Why? Because they forgot that life is good, that God is, and that the angels were watching over them, keeping them safe and bringing love.

Yes life is good. Difficult times come. But fear is about what has not yet happened. Fear is about imagination and dark thoughts. Fear is to expect trouble. There is another saying to remember. “Don’t borrow trouble. The interest rates are too high.”

Faith Builder:
Make a list of all your fears. See them for what they are—only an expectation of future pain.
