Psalms 20

Do you know that God has given both you and me the power to win??? The reason why it’s important to read our Bible, is because the word of God is a road map through the issues we encounter in life.  Psalms 20 is a wonderful example of God’s grace for us and explains how God not only hear us, but handles the conditions we encounter on a daily basis. If you have not committed your heart to God and your lifestyle to the word of God than you will always be stuck fighting battles with a blind fold on. It’s time to put the devil in his place and let God handle everything. Trust me, God is our true champion. Peace

Psalms 20: May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
    may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.

God loves you

Occasionally the trials and misfortunes we come across in life attempts to overshadow the love God has for us. I am here to assure you that no matter how many times you have messed up, or what is going bad in your life today, God still loves you.

In church you are encouraged to read your bible because the bible gives a roadmap of how God loves you through every situation that you may be going through. The bible is bursting with examples of the brilliant way God loves us past our issues. So I encourage you today to dig into the great book and experience the life changing love of God. Still Don’t believe God loves you… read Romans 5:8. Peace

#Fathersday

As Father’s day approaches I want to urge everyone to get to know the best Father you could ever have which is God.Whether you had a horrible dad or an amazing dad, it’s important that we acknowledge our role in contributing to who your physical father is in your life. It is our responsibilities to pray over the men in our life. Men are so strong and sometimes we forget that these protectors, laborers, and fortifiers needs spiritual covering as well. As this holiday approaches, let’s not just look for a tangible gift to give the father figures in our life, but this holiday presents the opportunity to sew spiritually into the men that we Love through prayer. Below I am going to present scriptures that you can incorporate into your gift of prayer over the men in your life. Happy Father’s Day!

Scriptures:

2 Peter 3:18, Proverbs 4:23- Concerning your loved ones relationship with God

Proverbs 15:33, Eph 6:6- That God will bless him

1 Corinthians 11:3- That they would be a spiritual leader for their family

Galatians 5:13-15- That they would make wise choices

Don’t let it KILL you!

One of my favorite authors Zig Ziglar says “Make failure your teacher, not your UNDERTAKER.”  I love this quote because it reminds me of the transitions we have in life. Sometimes the road will be rough, often times events will not transpire the way we would like… but ultimately failures are merely stepping stones in the direction of success. Its ok to acknowledge the pain of disappointments and misfortune, but we cannot allow it to consume us.

When failure comes your way, accept it… mourn it … then ask two questions.

  • Why did it happen
  • What can I learn from it

Once you answer the questions, do something you enjoy to bring the mood up, then move on. Today I want to encourage someone…keep pushing…keep trying…keep working because in the end You Will Win!

Do you dream BIG enough?

God tells us time and time again how much He loves and wants the best for us, but do we want whats best for ourselves? Today take a look inward and ask yourself if you are dreaming big enough, and for those of you who have stopped dreaming… lay your fears to rest and dream again. If you have forgotten how to seek God for what he wants for your life, start with this prayer. Peace

Prayer of Jabez:

1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez,[a] saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.

Work for it!

The statement “you don’t get something for nothing” is beyond true, it’s a winner’s mentality. The bible uses the analogy of a farmer planting a seed then reaping a harvest. When you look at your life, if it’s not what you want it to be, evaluate the seeds being planted. If you want to be an entrepreneur, are you taking small steps towards owning your business? If you would like to be a writer have you enrolled in a class to learn how to effectively convey your message?

No matter what it is that you want in life, it will require of you. Make a plan for your future, then intentionally run towards it. I guarantee there will be struggle, but after enduring you will march into a world where your life become your wildest dream.

Feel it!

The enemy is so annoying! He waits until you’re already tired, stressed out, and staying composed then he hits you with his best shot. A smart mouthed clerk, an unexpected bill, a relationship breaks up, a flat tire, anything to corrode your strength into fury. But, before you reach out your arms to put them around someone’s neck I encourage you to find a black hole.

Black hole? Yes… a person, place, or thing you can dump into, then walk away unburdened. For me my black hole is my “village” I have an amazing group of people in my life that I can completely fall apart in front of then straighten up and walk both stronger and greater than I ever did before. Your black hole may be a car to sit in and scream, a journal you can write anything into, or a park you go to and wonder around. No matter what it is, you have to find a way to feel it and move on! The key to succeeding in life is having an outlet, felling every emotion and learning how to send them down the appropriate path. Evaluate your friends and space, and find a black whole. So that when an enemy comes against you, you lock in… the come out fighting.

What do you Eat?

Many times when you have an ailment in your body and you can’t explain how it came to be, a doctor asks you to make a list of the things you eat. The concept is that you are putting something into your body that is harming you because there is no sign of destruction from the inside. A list allows the doctor to see your habits, and what you have been feeding your body, so that he can then pinpoint what is going wrong.

Today, if something is ailing you in your life, I ask… what are you eating? If you made a list of all the conversations, television, radio, friendship, and relationships you have subjected yourself to, could you put your finger on what’s hurting you the most?  Sometimes we think God is doing something to us or life has an agenda against us when that’s not true! Some of the issues we face is because we allow it into our life. We have to be careful what we eat ladies and gentlemen. God has made us in such a beautifully courageous way, but it is our responsibility to aid this flesh with the best nutrients possible. What is the best? Prayer time, positive television, uplifting friends, relationships that push you and don’t pull you down. You are in control of what occupies you mind and your heart, so it may be time to get on a spiritual diet. Take back the control and cut out whats hurting you.

Let’s throw out the toxins today! Peace

Can you see Freedom?

How is it that people can have seemingly everything and still be unhappy? Simple, they are not free. Freedom comes by tapping into the key of living a fulfilled life. How is that possible… one of the keys to a fulfilled life is being positive. The best thing you can do for yourself is to stay positive. Negativity will not only make you sick, but kill you. The bible says the joy of the Lord is your strength. If you can master acknowledging pain, mistake or error, then move on from it without that pain dragging you down, then my friend you have won. Life is short and we have a responsibly to do our best in every single moment. Don’t cheat yourself out of the true experience of life, smile, laugh, change what can be changed but then move on. Your worth it.

Quality Sleep

A little tip I learned while working with a psychologist was to make a to do list at the end of the day so that I could enjoy a more serene slumber. How…Write down all the things you would like to accomplish, so that when you put head to pillow your thoughts will not be jam-packed with tasks.

What makes this tip effective? To-do lists presents a level of accomplishment, every time you think of what needs to be done the next day, tell yourself that you already addressed it in the to do list, then move on. We have enough baggage during the day, you deserve to have a peaceful sleep. It’s time we take a strong hold on our time. The bible tells us to cast our cares upon a God who doesn’t sleep or slumber. We accomplish nothing by allowing issues and tasks run rapid in our thoughts day and night. Write them down and put them away so that you can truly appreciate sweet dreams.
