Wednesday! Worth Day!

Image result for worth it quotes

It’s Wednesday! Worth Day! I was wondering what value have you placed on your life? Have you limited the blessings you are entitled to? Have you blocked certain avenues that should be open in your life? God values us as his children. His love is not based on whether we are saved. He sent his son just to prove how much he loves us and wants us to be in fellowship with him. We are worth every thing God has for us. We choose to devalue our lives.

We are the ones who are so impatient that we are willing to accept a man who is married and claim he will be our husband after the divorce. We are the ones who are willing to be toyed with by a player who is out with two or three other side chicks. We are the ones who choose to remain a side chick instead of being the only wife. We are the ones who limit who God can use to speak into our lives because we don’t want to hear the truth. We are the ones who choose the sin we are tempted with over the escape we can be rescued with. We are the ones who are willing to accept anything that was better than the last thing, even though it’s not what God wants for us.

We don’t value ourselves the way God does. We don’t believe in ourselves the way God does. We don’t see ourselves the way God does. If we did, we would respect and honor ourselves the way God does. Don’t try to rush God into blessing you. Sometimes he will give you want you want instead of what you’re worth. Have patience and serve until he produces your blessing. Today is Wednesday, worth day! Are you worth waiting for? And are you waiting for what you are worth?

Why Do We Hold Grudges?

d1a9ee128375db621674c45025808992

Why do we hold grudges? We have been fooled into believing if we don’t forgive, we are the ones in control. When in fact, the situation is holding you captive. You remain stuck in a scenario that has already passed. Most of the time, the party involved has moved on and don’t even realize you are still angry. Then, it makes you angrier to see them living a happy life while you are still miserable holding your grudge. Free yourself from bondage today. Even if the person does not know you are angry, forgive them anyway. When we don’t forgive we hinder our own prayers. It is no wonder some of the things we pray for never get answered.

Matt 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

There it is! Ask God to heal your heart if you have been wronged. Forgive those and love them in spite of how they treat you. You may need to put some distance between you, but you still can show love. Forgiving does not mean what they said or did was okay. It just frees you from being held up in your life.


As long as we live, we will be offended. We will be rejected. We will be misunderstood. We will be disrespected. We will be lied on and talked about. But as long as we live, we can also forgive. Don’t let people control the outcome of your prayers and your life. You make the difference by letting go of the offense. Release it today. I pray God will grant you the grace sufficient to cover the hurt. I pray for your deliverance and that you will have a peaceful rest tonight. Ask the Lord to forgive you for holding a grudge, as you forgive your offender right now, in the mighty name of Jesus!

“Haters”

024Christians spend a lot of time acknowledging “haters” in their lives. They are always living to prove their “haters” wrong. They live to say, “Look at me now.” If everything you do is based on proving something to someone who apparently hates you, you are giving them way too much control in your life. You are constantly thinking about what they think about you. You are always wondering what they are saying about you. You are making them an idol god in your life. It shows signs of insecurities in your life. You are also allowing that little sneaky thing called pride validate your success instead of allowing God the opportunity to exalt you. How can God get the glory out of your life if pride is the source of your motivation? Pride is puffed up. Pride has to prove a point. Pride got kicked out of heaven many years ago. Pride surely will bring you down as quick as it has lifted you up.

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Don’t focus on those who hate you because no matter who you are and what you accomplish, there will always be at least one you can consider a “hater.” So, continue to be you and be true! Keep God as your focus and exalt Him instead of exalting your “haters.” Stay humble and watch God prove who he says he is and who he says you are. All glory belongs to God!

Bad Day, Bad Life? or Great Day, Great Life!

snapshot-1915-529-pm

No one really breaks life down by the day. We usually have long weeks, busy months and then some. But if you think about it, your life is made up of every day that you live. Why spend an entire day depressed and crying? If you do, eventually your life will become a sad and depressed life. If you wake up with joy and thanks for life, health, and strength, your joyful day will become a joyful life. Choose how you will live your life by changing how you spend your days. Think about what you will do today and how you choose to act and react to situations. Today could literally be the beginning of the best days of a better life. You have a choice! So, have a great day and especially a great life!

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:

You Will Never Know The Outcome Until You Come Out

The-Butterfly-is-ProofContinue to go through the process and let God determine the finished product. We may not be butterflies, but we certainly have felt some of the emotions represented by their change. When it feels like you are at your lowest, you may be a caterpillar crawling. When you feel alone and in the dark, you may be in a cocoon transforming into something more beautiful. When you come out, spread your wings and fly for the world to see the beautiful creation that you are. Have a wonderful Sunday and remember, you will never know the outcome until you come out!!

Late Night Struggles!

Dont-compare-your-struggles-500x530

I was sitting here listening to a little worship and a thought crossed my mind. So many people struggle in their minds late at night. They have nothing but time to think and meditate on some of everything and absolutely nothing. Unknowingly, it is not always just you and your mind. The enemy, who we call Satan, is around and influencing your very thoughts, especially late at night. He knows that no one else is around to help keep you focused. He knows that the thoughts he put in your mind will be too shameful for you to confess. He wants to cloud your thoughts with negativity and impure thoughts and cause you to commit sin or just give up on life. Don’t give room to the devil. Open up your bible and renew your mind with the Word of God. Rebuke the thoughts that mislead you and try to captivate your mind. Temptations will come, but it doesn’t become sin until you give in. Refuse to turn on the TV and watch perverted shows. Refuse to pick up the phone and call that old boyfriend or girlfriend you used to fornicate with. Refuse to go out to the club for one last time. Refuse to entertain suicidal thoughts. Your life is worth far more than the million tears you have already cried. God is reaching out to somebody tonight and letting you know that he loves you. Start fresh tonight!

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

We always quote, “resist the devil and he will flee,” but the first part of it is submit to God. One of three things will control you, your flesh, the devil, or God. Your flesh includes your mind. The devil is the prince of this world and is doing exactly what he chooses to do with it. God is Lord and ruler of all powers in earth as well as heaven. Submit to God first and the rest will fall in line. You don’t have to ever be alone. God is with you. He will keep you if you will let him. I pray that you overcome tonight and God keeps you in the midst of your struggles. You are more than a conqueror, so be victorious in Jesus’ name!

It’s Okay To Relax

relax

The next time something bad happens in your life, immediately ask yourself, “What can I do to fix it?” If there is something within your reach and within your power to fix the situation, then by all means do it. If there is nothing you can do, just smile. Look up to heaven and say, “Lord, there is nothing I can do about it, but I know you can.” Thank him and go on with the rest of your day. It is perfectly okay to be at peace when the situation dictates that you should flip out. Decide to have a peaceful day. Find some time to relax while God is working on your behalf.
