An Attitude of Worship:

No matter where you are and what you are doing an attitude of worship can elevate the way your experience life.

What is an attitude of worship? It is when you can look into the face of life and see God in it. Guess what, as long as we live on this earth there will be both good days and bad days. But when we choose to find “God” in every situaion, we are taking a fighting stance in life. You may be late to work, but you can say, “Ok God you may have been protecting me from a potential car accident, thank you, Lord.” A relationship may end, but God may have been trying to get you the job you have been praying for located in the state your partner didn’t want to travel to.

The Bible says that all thing work together for our good. So if we stop looking at the situation and look at God, we will then see the glory in every story. That my friend is an attitude of worship. Choosing to live in a place where God rules, thrives, and has His perfect way.

Forgiveness Friday

Matt 18: 35: So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

Refusing to forgive is a sin. If we receive forgiveness from God, we must give it to others who hurt us. We cannot hold grudges or seek revenge. We are to trust God for justice and forgive the person who offended us.

That does not mean we must forget the offense, however, usually, that’s beyond our power.

An unforgiving, vengeful, or bitter spirit will not only affect you and those around you, but it will also separate you from the blessing of God. Therefore you must forgive others no matter what the offense.

Thank you Pastor Pat Buckley for putting this transformative information online.

To get a prayer to help with forgiveness come back next week!

Do what’s right…. The first time

When you don’t do what your supposed to do there are consequences. I have decided to go back to school because there is much to learn in the field of psychology. In order to give the most accurate information, I had to go back to school!

Now, in this journey I have learned to do the right thing the first time! If an assignment is due, I have a better score when I take my time and read through the assignments before giving an answer.

I’m writing this post today because God put on my spirit that many of us choose to do the right thing at the wrong time. Our life is one big assignment… instead of taking the time to develop, research, then respond; we are giving what ever answer comes to the top of our head, hoping that in the end it’s enough to suffice.

Let today be the day you choose to give your best the first time. If you’re on a job give your all! Don’t become lazy and compliant because it’s not your dream, God has you there for a reason so be effective. If you’re in a relationship be attentive and respectful, if you’re a parent, sacrifice for your personal time for time with your child.

Take time and develop yourself so that when you present yourself to the world you give your best answer.

Selah.

The Battle:

Every person on this earth has two sides of themselves. On the one hand, we have the part of us that strives to do good, and on the other, we have what is referred to as the “flesh” the impatient prideful and selfish side that demands to be seen and heard at all costs.

No matter where you are in your relationship with Christ you will have to continually battle both sides. There is no service, or magic pill you can take that will make you 100% one side and not the other.  So as Christians we must learn how to sacrifice our flesh daily.

Acknowledge the pride, selfishness or sin lying within our flesh so that God can come in and transform our imperfections.

Everyone must acknowledge and humble ourselves as people who need forgives. And that my friend is how we win the battle of life.

I’m made for this!!!

Every person on this planet called earth has the ability to win. God did not say that He made special people that will achieve their dream while others squander their life and struggle. 3 John 2:2″ Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” So you have to decide to be who God made you to be!

You can have a dream, make a plan, then conquer the goal… but first you have to decide that you are a winner. Television, relationships, and negative impressions cannot be your deterrent in your path of success. You have to make a daily decision and stand on the understanding that you were made to win, succeed and be useful in this world.

Let today be the last day that you let your self down. Chose to prosper, look yourself in the mirror and say ” Success… I was made for this!”

Meditation Monday

Guess what…. its Monday! Here on good girl issues, I’m here to help you take control of your week. By making a few minutes to mediate, you can not only change the atmosphere, but you can change your outlook on the entire week!  In Psalms 46:10 God instructs us to be still and Know God, which means that when we choose to sit in the presence of God, with an open areas and a closed mouth, then we can attain real peace and understanding. while it is appropriate to have question and conversation with God, I challenge you to be still today. Allow God to impart His peace into your week. Selah

Meditation Monday:

There is power in silence.

Life is all about balance, we have to learn how to be still and have a moment of peace and quiet.  From silence, you can learn how to block off negative thoughts, stress concerning day to day issues, and lists that we have going on in our heads.  Check out this video concerning keeping priority straight in your life. When we learn to consider God in everything we do, then we unlock unparalleled peace and guidance for our day. Enjoy!

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
