From Deep Down Inside - blog post by MSI Press Author, Marti Wells Smith

  I wonder how many of us question our purpose, and wonder if we're fulfilling the will of God in our daily lives. When these thoughts enter my mind, I turn to specific scriptures to meditate upon their deeper meanings. Ecclesiastes 12:13 states: ...here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. The word fear often translates to love or revere, which takes me to Revelation 4:11.Thou are worthy O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Beauty and peace surround you, yet you're lost in your own troubles. Maybe you've even had that experience with helping professionals, going to therapists and bodyworkers and life coaches and doctors and still, you remain caught in the same struggle that brought you there. It's an awful feeling, like being handed a beautiful gift made just for you, only you can't reach out your hands to accept it. You might decide the gift is not right for you and continue your search for more and new and better gifts. But what will help you to receive them? As many of you know, I am a huge proponent of what I call “self-healing.” This phrase wasn’t super popular long ago, but much like “mindfulness" and "energy work," it’s becoming so commonplace, it’s losing all meaning.
