Where is your faith?
I would like to say that I am so happy and grateful now that I have watched the movie “The Secret”.
It all started last month. Prior to last month me and my husband had been having some really hard times. I had a second chance at marriage after being divorced three years prior to a man who abandoned me and our three children. Being left to raise three children alone, the youngest being three months, it left me to think about the hard times, loss of sleep, and why he abandoned us, all the time.
Engaged to my knight in shining armor, I moved here almost a year ago, left everything behind to start a fresh start with my husband. Well, at this time my husband was working, making great income. He would constantly reassure me that I would never have to go through what I had experienced in the past. He took care of us and gave us everything this family needed. We had everything, and it all started out perfect.
I must say, while preparing to move here, I was fearful of the unknown. You know after being married to someone who never took care of you, and left everything for you to handle, it would stay in the back of my mind if it was gonna happen again. My present husband never showed a sign of being that way, but it was something that I was always thinking about.
On the trip down here to Charlotte, NC, I was thinking to myself, “What if he loses his job when I get there?” Or, “What if we don’t have enough money?” Or, “What if the transportation fails, what if I can’t find childcare when I start working, what if my ex-husband tries to start drama with me?” All the negative thoughts that you could think of were crossing my mind. Well, let me say this, by thinking those thoughts, and pondering them all the time, it all happened so quickly. After a week of getting married my husband got laid off his job. I would ask myself, “What if it’s hard for him to find another job?” He applied to so many jobs and they would not hire him. The car began to need repairs. We never seemed to have enough money. When I started working it was hard finding childcare, and when I would get paid, all the money would be gone. Low and behold my ex-husband started causing drama with all of these crazy accusations against me and my husband. Even with my job it would just take a toll on my attitude. I would start out my day positive, but by the end of the day I would have a frown on my face, because people were just so rude and didn’t appreciate all the hard work I would put forth. I would come home and complain to my husband, day after day after day.
After almost a year of dealing with all of these negative things, my husband applied for a job. During the time of applying for this job, his brother told him to read the book The Secret before going to the interview. My husband fell in love with it immediately.
One week had gone by after my husband had read the book. He would say, “Honey, you really need to read this book,” so he got me a copy. Still with me dealing with my negative thinking, I felt as if I didn’t have the time to read the book.
One day I had the most horrible day at work and came home telling my husband everything. It was problem after problem after problem. I wanted to quit that same day it was so bad. My husband made me sit down and watch the movie, “The Secret.” I was so amazed. I was happy, but at the same time mad at myself, because all that we were going through I felt was all my fault because of all the negative thinking I was doing.
I was so impressed, because after watching this movie my husband had applied “The Secret” to his everyday life, and I quickly began to see the results. He got hired on the job. It pays enough to take care of all our needs. He is so happy and motivated. He did his vision board and wrote his list of things he’s grateful for. I am so proud of him. So, last week, I did the same. I have always had faith in god, but at the same time an ounce of doubt in what I wanted to receive. The Secret has showed my how to apply my faith, in a more in depth way. I’ve been at work smiling, and having a great time. People have been nice to me. They have been saying things like, “I appreciate all of your help today.” I’m thinking, “Wow, this really works.”
I now have the perfect work schedule, and I have more time with my children. All things are working in our favor. Every morning after I pray, I say, “I believe it, I receive it, I’m claiming it, and it’s mine… I thank you.”
Thank you for writing this book, and making a movie. It has helped me and my family so much. It has also helped me be a better wife, mother, sister, and friend.
