    How to Do What You Love

    Finding Your Mission. Discovering Your Passion. Making Changes Over Time. by Krista Marie Moore

    Daily Miracle Message

    Are you doing what you love yet? Do you feel like you have hope in the morning, meaning throughout the day, and gratitude at night? Do you rise up with purpose and feel a longing to keep going, exploring and doing all that you love?

    This may seem impossible, a fantasy even, but I am here to tell you that it is possible! I am doing what I love, thank God (you can read more about that in How Your Mission Can Change Everything). However, it has been a process, not an all-of-a-sudden proposition. So don’t worry. You can figure this out. I have experienced many transitions over the last 20 years, all for the better, and slowly over time, my life has become absolutely in line with my true dreams and goals. And I’m still learning and growing! I never want that to stop.

    That is what it can feel like when you do what you love. You don’t mind the slow-downs, hiccups, detours, dead ends. Eventually, you find your way around again, doing what you love. As long as you are pointed in the right direction, and keep putting gas in the tank, you will find more ways to explore each avenue of expression, each eager dovetail into phenomenal vistas that send your stomach swirling in loop-dee-loops. It is worth the price of admission.

    What will it take to do what you love? You may have a family member or a partner to help. Or a side job, or a very slow transition time from your “normal” career. Or life may force you into a new positive change (through job loss, relocation or death of a loved one). Or you may do what you love on weekends, or on very long vacations from which you do not wish to return, or you may have an exit plan. Whatever way you decide to take, keep pointing in the right direction.

    And what if you do not know what you love? It may not be obvious, or it may be right in front of your nose. There is some flickering flame of passion within you, some deep down desire. Listen to it. Explore it. Ask questions. Pretend that anything is possible. And then take the first step. It could be so micro – minuscule you hardly even notice. But it is a start! Like drawing a picture, or writing a note to yourself. Just keep going! And soon, you will be counting the days till your next workday, rather than your next vacation day. True work is play!

    Doing what you love feeds your soul, elevates your consciousness, and often causes you to give love and service to others in a way that feels “effortless”. It could be something so natural to you you think it’s a sin to be paid for it. Like a hobby you’ve been stuffing in the closet, or think your “okay” at, but other people think you’re amazing.

    Imagine your life differently. Doing what you love. Imagine that God wants you to be happy. Doing what you love. Imagine everything is possible. Doing what you love. And then, and only then, start living that way.

    Daily Miracle Prayer

     Dear God, help me remember what I love to do, what brings me joy and happiness, fulfillment and abundance. I am willing to change my outlook. I am willing to make room in my life for more of what I love. Make me accountable. Send me helpers to push me toward my dreams. Make them come true. Thank you, God. Amen.

    Daily Miracle Blessing

    Make room for Me. And I will make room for your deepest dreams. Pray to Me, and I will counsel you on what to do. Do not falter. Do not despair. There is a rainbow waiting for you. Give me your dreams and I will cause great miracles to bring those dreams to life!

    How God Can Use You

    “Use Me”. From A Daily Book In Miracles, a book in progress, by Krista M. Moore, Copyright 2019; Photo: “Man on a Rock” Copyright 2018 by Krista M. Moore

    Daily Miracle Message

    One of the prayers of my life has been, “Use me”.  I recognize that I’ve been given a lot of talents, gifts and resources. So have you. What if you turned it all over to God, right now, and said, “Use me”?

    It seems a little gesture. Like, what can I do? Little old me?

    But it is a great request. And it leads to great things.

    Your life is filled with promise. You were born that way. And though you may have forgotten, God didn’t forget about you. The best thing you can say to God is, “Use me”.

    You may feel you’re not worthy to serve God. Or you’ve made too many mistakes. However, you will never know all that you have done already to serve God. You have forgotten most of those tiny gestures. But many, many lives have been saved because of you. You wouldn’t be here right now, living and breathing, reading these words, if God didn’t have a great plan for your life!

    All you have to do is let your worries and fears go, all your regrets and mistakes (if you have any) – even your past glories – and turn everything, I mean everything, good and bad, proud of and not proud of, both hope and despair… and say, “Here it is God. Use what you can and discard the rest.”

    And He will!

    Boy, has my life changed since I turned that phrase.  From self-serve to High Service! I still have a long way to go, but I never give up asking God to make my life count and push me to do what needs to be done.

    And I have never been more content. Life is always new, always changing, always moving me forward. And it can be that way for you, too!

    It doesn’t matter what is going on in my life, one way or another, God turns it all around and makes everything turn out great. And it just keeps getting better. Sure, I am still challenged, I still suffer, but overall, as I look back, I am amazed at his goodness and response to my call, and mine to His!

    When you’re in doubt; when you don’t know what to do; when you think you’ve made too many mistakes; or that it’s too late, just say this tiny prayer and your whole world will change:

    “God, Use me. I am willing to be used by You!”

    And He will!

    Daily Miracle Prayer

    Dear God, Use me. I may have made a lot of mistakes and wasted a lot of time. I can’t take that back. But I can give you everything I have now. Take my whole life: my talents, my gifts, my mistakes. Make everything right. Make everything great. For the rest of my days… Use me. Amen.

    Daily Miracle Blessing

    There is nothing, nothing you can do to stop my Love for you. You have not fallen off my page. I still have your name on my list. I have a plan that needs your gifts. Let go of all your cares and worries and let me use your gifts!
