from N.W. Washington
I have needed many changes in my life for a long time!! When my friend told me about The Secret I went right out and got a copy. I started reading it and right away I began to focus on things that needed changing.
As a Christian I understand the power of prayer, but never thought about it the way The Secret explains it. I prayed for a raise, & before long I had a considerable raise, as well as mileage pay.
Then I prayed for my son to get a safer job transfer in the army to stop the stress of worrying about him. He's been in Iraq since Nov. 07. I pictured him as a clerk typist!! Guess what? He was transferred to an intel desk job with HQ because he had already passed clearance for his current job. Now he works with the unmanned aircraft in an office all night, & sleeps during the day!! This has opened wonderful doors for him!! Thank God!!
I had surgery & ended up on the sofa for 5 weeks, bored!!! I started writing lyrics to a song for something to do. I had wished for something inspirational to do! I finished the song & gave it to a musician/ vocalist friend as a gift for being so inspirational & a great mentor to me. He was surprised & thankful! After that I prayed that this inspiration would continue so I could write more songs. In the last 6 months I have finished 5 songs & have 2 in the works!!! I am praying that this will bring me to a new career in my life!
I prayed for a new car. I never said what kind of car, but I have always loved the older Jaguars. A family member acquired one in trade & decided to sell it. I was able to buy it before she advertised it! It's my dream car & I enjoy it so much!!
Now I am focusing on getting things together for a career change so I am ready when it happens. I'm learning a new language & studying music theory, & taking guitar lessons. I am also getting my passport & I have purchased new luggage as well!!! I am also praying for the loss of 40 lbs. A lot to focus on but things happen fast sometimes!!! God says he helps those who help themselves!
Anyway, I am very grateful for the Secret!! Marilyn
