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.
Sometimes we are so proud of the work that we have done that we begin to stand on a thrown of our own making. This is a dangerous thing to do because God is the firm foundation in which the kingdom of prosperity and victory stands. If you alter the foundation, there is sure to be a crack in the seat you so comfortably sit in. You see the world is not even or fair and to trust it or its devices is to build your house on sand. Today, welcome the power of God into your life and allow His love to elevate you! Selah #SLiM
Today we are introducing peace into your life. The truth is that you become who you think you are. If you don’t take a moment out of your day and tune into what God has called you to be then who then will you become. Mediation Monday is a tool ad reminder that your thoughts and mentality matters! Enjoy this meditation clip and let me know what you think! #SLiM
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.
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Can I share a secret with you? In life, we don’t really know what would make us happy. Don’t believe me, ask someone who is happily married, I guarantee the person they are with did not meet every requirement on their dream list. Still don’t believe me, talk to a millionaire attaining items that the average person would say brings happiness like a car, or home. If you create and idea of “happy” and run after that you will be leading a life of discouragement. But if you set your sights on higher things that being impactful while one this earth, I guarantee you will live your best life yet!
“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
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
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
