I am glad you have shared these writings. Both authors are new to me. I will begin using the Ponder words right away. I will use them along with the following that I took from a book by Gloria Benish whom I simply discovered by one of those marvelous coincidences after having asked God for help.
Benish writes that God revealed this sentence to her and I loved it from the moment I read it.
Concerning ___________, I united my dreams, desires, purpose and will with God's will.
I find this gives power to my will and combined with the Ponder piece to dislodge the things that have been holding me back I expect things to take off dramatically in my life.
