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.

Meditation Monday

Sometimes the beginning of the week can be the most hectic. We have lists in our minds, paper on our desks, and people to put up with on our jobs. At this moment, and in this space you have an opportunity to relax your mind and your anxieties. Choose to have 30 minutes of peace right now! The work, todos, and people will still be there when you’re done I’m sure of it. But when you choose to have mental health, you offer your “best self” to the day. After refreshing your mind and spirit, the rest of the day is forced to get into alignment with the standard of peace you have presented to yourself.

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.
