It’s ok to see the big picture, but remember, the artist started with an empty canvas. We find it difficult to be consistent with the simplest principles in life. We know where God wants to take us, but we refuse to be a student long enough to get there. Master one thing before you add another. We are so busy trying to prove we are something that we are showing everyone we know nothing. Wisdom waits. Patience learns. Humility excels. Faithful over the few becomes the ruler over many. It doesn’t matter if you take large steps or tiny steps as long as they are ordered by God. Let’s aim for long term results with short term steps!

The Failure to Succeed

Oftentimes, we confuse failure with defeat. Failing means to try again, push harder, or use a different strategy. You are allowed to fail as many times as it is necessary for you to succeed. Failure is not defeat. Defeat is quitting after failure. To succeed, sometimes you will fail, but you never have to be defeated!! Get out there and make a failing success out of yourself!#IWillSucceed

The Will of God

We spend so much time struggling with the will of God. Sometimes, where you are is not as important as how you are. God wants us to be thankful. No matter where you have been or where you are going, the will of God is that you give thanks! Thank him today for your yesterday, today, and tomorrow. It is the will of God!

Know Your Worth

You get to choose who is in your life and how you allow them to treat you. When people are constantly being mistreated and think it is ok, they do not know their value. best-motivation-quote-on-inspirational-love-quotes-with-motivation-quote-redsnapperlantacom-1509409858g84nkWhen you hear statements like, “I don’t think I will find anyone else,” That is the best that I can do,” “I just ignore that side of him/her, he’s really a good guy” These are statements of a person who has low self worth. You never deserve to be treated badly. There are plenty of people in the world, you can find someone else. Do not ignore the signs of a person who is aggressive, rude, selfish, moody, etc. . But what if you are the one with these characteristics. You are rude, moody, selfish, aggressive etc.. Get the help that you need to become better and treat people better. People do not have to be perfect, but they should be stable. Start seeing your worth and see that God has great things in store for you. You are worthy of being treated well and God values you. He was willing to die for you, that is how much you are worth. Do not let anyone tell you or treat you differently.

Trust God!

The less we know, the more we learn to trust God. Trying to understand every little thing that happens in our life, drives a wedge between God and us. Surrender every are of your life. You can trust Him. He knows everything about you and still desires to be close to you. Walk with God. He will lead the way!

God’s Timing Is Always Right

maxresdefault

Wait on God! Wait on God! UGGGH…Waiting is so hard to do. We are impatient and we want it right now! We get agitated because it seems like nothing is happening. What is the big rush? We are the ones who said, “by this time next year…..”  We have created time limits that God never told us to create. Then, we get anxious when the time is drawing near. Remember, God is the creator of time. He can speed it up, slow it down, and he can make it stop if he chooses to. No matter when God manifests it, the time will be right. So, enjoy the journey and relax. When you are in God’s hands, you have nothing but time to wait on Him. God’s timing is always right!
