Work hard REST hard

When creating a world of creativity and success it’s important we remember the value in resting. When you rest you allow your thoughts and body to reenergize.  There is a scripture in Psalms 46:10 that says be still and know that I am God. Working all the time weighs on your heart and mind especially if you are doing work that is primarily a service for other people in the community. I wanted to remind someone today that it is OK to rest. Take an hour, half a day, 30 mins to quiet your body and thoughts and tune into a refreshing peace.

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
― Confucius

Did you know that you can control how your day is going? I know what you are thinking…life is unpredictable and everything in it is as well. Can I offer another thought?  Even though you cannot control what happens in your day, you can control your emotion through it. When you have a problem if you ask God to show you just one positive aspect of it all… I guarantee He will!

EXAMPLE: You may have been late to work, but had you been on time you would have been apart of a deadly accident.

Today choose to see the great in your day! Selah

Are you ready to receive in 2018?

To be a person who receives you must learn how to be a person who gives. If you do research on the most successful people on this planet, they gave their time and complete energy to what they wanted to accomplish. In the Bible, we are taught that what we sew we reap in excess.

This year don’t be afraid of giving your all! If you’re going to have a stronger relationship with God spend more time with God without fear of what’s going on around you. If you’re going to start a business, put your very best foot forward and know that if God put the desire inside of you… then he made you CAPABLE and you will succeed. Be a giver this year and watch God transform every area of your life. Selah

Backbone

This year has been one of transitions, one thing I have learned is to have the stubbornness of a mule when it comes to the things of God. I call it my “God-given backbone.”

Sometimes we feel as Christians that it is our responsivity to be meek and passive when God is calling for us to stand up and be bold; Acknowledge Him in all we do with the utmost confidence and courage. The time has passed for the passive Christian, get to know God so that you can stand on His shoulders and live the victorious life you were destined for. Say YES when you mean YES, and say No when you mean NO! we are accountable to God, and if you are listening to the direction of God then, in the end, it …. will… be… OK! So, take a deep breath and choose strength, courage, and truth today. Work out that Back Bone. Selah.

Had a bad day

Today was rough, this season has been difficult, and this year is coming to a close. But… You have made it. In our walk with God we are not promised a stress free life, instead we are given a gift of peace, long suffering , love, self control, and much more. What does that have to do with the struggles in life? Well, the gifts are our line of defense against the struggles that want to bring us down. God doesn’t abandon us during rough times, instead He offers the ability to overcome and even flurish. Pinpoint what gift you need in this time of pain from Galatians 5:22 , pray and ask God to show you your life vest.
