Life Is Not a Cliche
By Hila J. Esters
For one reason or another, we’ve all heard people say the following phrases, ‘Life is short!’ or ‘Tomorrow is not promised to us.’ The problem is that most people I’ve talked to, actually believe and repeat these words. For them, these simple phrases, are harmless. With their thinking and imaginations based on these non-substantiated clichés, they find themselves making important decisions that affect their very lives!
What is a cliché? A cliché is a phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original thought. No one really wants their life to be short. Who wouldn’t love to live another day, another month or another year? Ask someone who has just been given the shocking news that they have aggressive cancer with the prognosis of a very short time to live! What are their thoughts? Where did their imagination carry them? How will it affect their loved ones?
Life is not a cliché! The words you speak over your life whether positive life-giving words or negative life depleting words, they have power. To say that life is short, or that tomorrow is not promised to us, breeds uncertainty and fear. If you allow uncertainty and fear to control your imagination or the words you speak, the end result will be just what you have repeatedly said without thinking about the consequences. Each and every day, life, real life, is to be lived moment by moment in its fullness.
With God, all things are possible! Real life is eternal. With the presence of the breath of life in us from the eternal God Himself, we have the power to live in and from eternal life now; learning, growing, multiplying, giving, receiving and increasing with the unlimited resources in our God-given potential.
Living in the reality of eternal life daily affects us and has far-reaching effects on our lives and the lives of others. To live life is to fully expect God’s goodness to manifest by continually searching out and allowing our innate unlimited potential to develop and increase far beyond anything we have ever dreamed or imagined. The thoughts and words of life we think, imagine and speak release power over our bodies inside and out, and over the life, we live.
To live life as a cliché is to deny our ability to reach into the possibilities of our personal success spiritually, mentally, physically, socially and financially. By living in the reality of life with diligence, we discover that the pursuit of our innermost dreams increases our desires and our freedom of choice concerning the decisions we make and actions we take.
Stepping into the flow of spiritual freedom increases our spiritual and mental capacity, thereby changing how we view ourselves and the world around us. Applying the change physically and socially affects the increased available flow of our finances to do good when opportunities arise. Throw out life as a cliché. Begin to live in the power of real life.
