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.

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

Michelle Williams: The strength to speak up.

Here on good girl issues we advocate mental health. A courageous woman named Michelle Williams has came forward as an spokesperson for mental health awareness. She had been battling depression for most of her life and she shares her story here.

People of God do not let mental illness separate you from the love of God! Battling an illness is not a sin nor a crime. The devil wants you to be quite but now is the time to raise your voice. Do not fight alone. Reach out to someone who can help. God loves you and desires for your life to be blessed and prosperous. Check out this champion, she has made it through and so can you! 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

Everyones not going to like you.. and its ok!

One of the most interesting things I have learned from being a pastor and a CEO is that everyone is not going to like you or accept your help. Your heart and desire could be to save the world and bring everyone with you but that simply isn’t how life is. Even the word of God says that the poor will be with you always, meaning that there are people who will not want better for themselves, work hard, or appreciate the opportunity you give them. And THAT’S OK, people of God we have to remember our daily job is to simply be a light that shows Gods love. A light… not the raft, or evacuating airplane. Be the best you, shine Gods light on your job, home and community, then leave the rest up to God. Trust me, He’s big enough to handle it! Selah.

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

Meditation Monday:

The word of God says in Psalms 46:10 “ Be still and know that I am God.” Our life can get so BUSY with work, family, and even fun. Do you know that by taking a minute to slow down you could actually be more productive? Being Still allows God to interject His divine power into what you are doing. Enjoy today’s meditation.
