Key things to remember about spirituality

    1. God loves me right where I am, not where I think He wants me to be.
    2. My feelings, are just my feelings. If I don’t feel God, it doesn’t mean he has abandoned me.
    3. God wants to connect with me, and is less concerned how I do it, and more concerned that I do it.
    4. I might have consequences, or feel disciplined for my behavior, yet I am not being judged or condemend.
    5. The actions I take don’t make me worthy or unworthy. Being aligned with my Higher Power gives me a more abundant life, and connects me closer with God and others.
    6. I always have a choice. I can choose to accept the guidance of a spiritual source, or I can choose to follow my own will or another set of principles. No one makes the choice for me, and I don’t make the choice for others.
