Can you live on life’s terms? How do you cope? Cope, according to Dictionary.com is to face and deal with responsibilities, problems, or difficulties, especially successfully or in a calm or adequate manner. Most people do not have the ability to cope with anything out of the ordinary as they were never allowed to think for themselves. You acquire common sense one of two ways, you either draw from your bag of tricks, learned through experiences, or trial and error, or inspiration and intuitive thought. Most parents prevent their children from learning life’s lessons in a selfish desire to keep their children safe or to not look bad as parents.
We must all learn to cope as the universe is in God’s hands and we must learn to cope or trust. The better I accept God’s will for me without having to take control the better I seem to cope. To cope is to accept life on life’s terms; accepting God’s plan as the only plan. Coping is a short step toward accepting a better life. I have worked diligently in acquiring an understanding of God that allows me to easily accept changes of plan and to cope. I live my life in compliance with God’s laws and live in constant meditation and prayer. This allows me to have very little to cope with.
To cope is a show of struggle. I am aware that I have no power other than the life force of God working through me and I give the world the best I have at any given time and am sure God is proud of my efforts. I am only responsible for my efforts as God is responsible for the outcome of all my actions. If my actions are positive the outcome will be positive and if my actions are negative my outcome will be negative. But even if the outcome seems negative and I don’t let up on my prayer and meditation God uses it to help me reach my ultimate potential.

Your Life is PERFECT!
