There She Is!

There is nothing more fulfilling than being you and being happy about who you are! So often we spend our days trying to figure out who we are because we have become what we do. Take a moment to strip yourself of all the things you do and all the positions you fill, and ask yourself, “Who am I?” When no one is around, are you laid back? Are you high energy? Do you like being by yourself? Do you enjoy crowds? What makes you happy when there is no one pulling on you? Once you find out who this person is, introduce her to the world. Yes, she has flaws. Yes, she can be a little quirky. She may be a little shy or even a bit outspoken. When she shows up, embrace her. Then you can begin to find out what God says about her. He loves her just the way she is. And since he is the creator, whatever he finds that is broken, he can fix it! Stop trying to be everything for everyone, and just try being you. The world will either love you are hate you, but the only one who matters is God. Believe me when I tell you this, he loves you!

Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth but….

How many times have we heard, “Get out of your feelings?” Our feelings will fail us every time. We get angry and blow up. We get sad and go into depression. We get frustrated and give up. There is no victory in our flesh. As Psalms tells us, our flesh and heart will fail, BUT GOD! Who needs a “BUT GOD” this morning? God is the strength of your heart. When you look back at situations and can’t figure out how you survived that one, know that it was only because of God. He is your portion. Portion is not the whole thing, it’s a part. He is the missing parts in your life. Let him fill the void and be your strength. You are guaranteed to be made whole. We will all have down times in our life, but we have to choose to experience them in a better way. So, get your day started with a “portion” of God. You need a portion here, a portion there, after a while you will be filled with his love, joy, peace and all of the wonderful attributes of who he is. I hope this encouraged someone today.

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?

Believe In You!

CJ9VKuzUYAAc2NM

What is the one thing in your life that seems like it is too far to reach? That is what you need to aim for. Don’t talk yourself out of your dreams any longer. Don’t discourage yourself from reaching your destiny. Take the first step and “Believe” that you can do it. We try so hard to do the bigger thing when we haven’t conquered the smaller thing, that is to “Have Faith.” So today is the beginning of the rest of your life. 🙂 Take your first step in achieving by “Believing!” You can do it and you will.

Celebrate Your Success!

proudWe have to learn to celebrate the moments in our life. Reaching a goal can take years. You don’t want to find yourself struggling and working hard to reach your goals and never enjoying the process. If you are losing weight, treat yourself to a new dress every 10 pounds lost. If you are in school, celebrate after each semester with a day out  If you are quitting cigarettes or alcohol, pat yourself on the back every successful day you have. Whatever you are reaching for, make it worth while. And remember to give thanks in all that you do.

Proverbs 16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

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.

Keep on Moving! Happy Friday!

I read something today that said,

“You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face.”

These are such powerful words. We all have a choice in life. We can keep going until we achieve what we desire or we can quit. We live in a time where we are afforded so many opportunities to be and to achieve greatness. In spite of the roadblocks, stereo types, and even discrimination…. anything is possible. Keep pushing to reach your goals. It may cost you money, tears, sweat, and blood, but don’t throw in the towel. Wipe your face and keep on moving.

Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
