Rest Less

I for one am an advocate for resting, taking time for yourself, and appreciating life as it happens around you; but what I can not condone is the lackadaisical way some people choose to approach their life.

If you are a Christian, who wants to spend more time with God than you must become a person who can turn off the television or decline an outing if it conflicts with your time with God. If you are an entrepreneur, then you have to learn how to become a person who manages both time and people well. This means you may not have an hour lunch like your employees because you have things to handle on the job site.

I know this is not a popular concept, but it is the truth! If you want to succeed in life, you have to rest less. Stop looking for the vacation in life and dedicate yourself to work at hand. You WILL miss some of the “fun” things happening but guess what, when you look up later in life you will have built the empire of your dreams. God has not only given you a vision, but the audacity to see your vision through until the end. Selah

Meditation Monday

Do you know where your power lives?

In love… if we learn to love one another and love ourselves, we can then become people who love our jobs, our homes, and our community.  This meditation Monday tune into love. When something goes wrong in your day, ask yourself ” how can I help this situation with love?” Check out this new song from Tori Kelly, its a beautiful expression of love and worship. Selah

Say Hello to Today

Hello, today:

There is a motto that I say to myself at the beginning of the day. “Hello today, what happened yesterday is gone and what will happen today is up to me; so, choose peace, choose love, and choose excellence.” When you choose peace, you are choosing not to get involved in the negative energy of the day. When you choose to love you forgive quickly and look for a way to bless the people around you. When you choose excellence, you make the decision to go above and beyond, to give the day you’re very best, not just the minimum. So, if you haven’t already… say hello to today and be blessed! Selah

Meditation Monday

Welcome back to meditation Monday!!!!!  In life, we need to learn how to turn off the “busyness” of life a tune into God. Sometimes the simple quiet moment is the very thing you need to reenergize your mind and soul. Enjoy this meditation session with Dr. Michael Beckwith.

You cant please everyone

It is not your job to make sure everyone around you understands and accepts you. If you live a life juggling peoples impression of you, you will live a life full of frustration and exhaustion. Instead, live a life that is fulfilling to God, and the rest will fall into place. Allow God to be the avenger of your character and intentions. Make a point in your day to be your best and give your best, then leave the rest up to God. That is when you infuse peace into your existence.  Selah #SLiM #truth #inspiration #life #keepitreal

Gratefulness:

If you are a child of God than you understand that you are alive today because God loves you and woke you up this morning. That is a reason to be grateful, and we as the people of God should start the day in gratefulness. Being appreciative of the life, love and freedom we have been given each day. Gratefulness then becomes our attitude through out the day with our children, spouse, and coworkers. When something goes wrong in the day, we can lean on that same gratefulness and appreciate the opportunity to live past and grow out of the stressful situation. You see, gratefulness is a tool that can transform your perspective in life, allowing you to breath a little deeper in appreciation of the life you were given and don’t deserve. Today decide to be grateful for the life you were given.

Fearlessly Happy

Today I want to encourage you to smile! Really smile without inhabitation, grace and accept the potential for more smiles. You are worth a great day, some good news, a great year. Stop waiting for something bad to happen and enjoy each moment for what it is. Your worth it… and let me tell you a secret, God wants it for you. Selah #SLiM
