“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

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.

Listen…

Many times on this blog I share information about how to be your best you, but tonight we’re going to talk about how being the best you will positively contribute to the relationships around you.

Today we’re talking about the ability to listen, listening is a lost skill in my opinion , one in which a person is able to express themselves without the other person waiting for an opportunity to interject or give their opinion. I know it is difficult to Simply listen to a story or exclamation without remembering a similar situation of your own, but I challenge you this weekend to “intentionally listen.” Hear what the person who speaking to you is truly saying, and when they’re finished, respond… But hold your comments until then. This simple self discipline will introduce you to healthier and more fufilling relationships. Let me know how “intentionally listening” affected your weekend, Selah.

A #real relationship

When you choose to be in relationship with God you are making the decision to transform YOUR life into an Our life. Meaning that you now consider God in everything you do. You are now living a life that isn’t solely about you, but one that advances the kingdom of God because in God you are now royalty.

Do you consider God? Know the interest of God… Care about what’s on the heart of God? If not, it’s time to step it up in the relationship. Be attentive, loving , and caring in your relationship with God. It’s not too late, today intentionally press your ear to the heart of God. Ask Him what he wants from you today… And see that His desires for you are greater than you could have ever imagined. Selah

What do you want…

One of the most incredible gifts God has given us is possiblity. But with that gift, the question must be asked… What is it that you want? Is your heart’s intention to love God, get married, be rich… What matters to you most?

When you learn to answer that question honestly, free from public impression, judgement, or condemnation then you can begin revealing the truest expression of yourself. SELAH

Get ready to get Up!

Your story is not over because you have not seen your promise come to pass. God is a fufilling God and He intends to bless you but you have to get up. Get up out of the bed of failure, depression, and self hatred. You are enough, you are capable, and even though you breakthrough has not come yet… You are a winner, successful, and victorious! But you can’t win unless you get up, not later right now! Psalms 1:3

24 hours

Sometimes we can get so comfortable with life that we fail to see what our greatest influencers are. If you or I sat down and wrote out how the last 24 hours were spent… what would you find? If you don’t like how your time is spent, then it’s time make some adjustments.

You don’t have to conquer the entire 24 hours immediately, but today make the decision to change 1 hour of your day to be more constructive or productive. Over time your day will be filled with more of the things that you like and less of what you don’t. With that combination… you’re sure to propel your future. Selah #SLiM

The most powerful question

Who must I become to achieve my greatest desire?

It is easy to say… “I’d like to be a teacher, doctor, singer” ect. but do you consider who you need to be to make the dream a reality? It is not helpful in your purpose to want success but not work for success. In every season of my life I go through a phase with God where He is reconstructing my way of thinking. The month of August is the eighth month of the year and eight is the number of new beginnings, in my prayer time God did not share with me a new idea. . he showed me a discipline.

Before I could handle something new I needed to master habits of a person with my gifts. Now this may not be easy for everyone to accept about themselves, but I ask you a question tonight. If you were blessed with the one thing you desire to be or desire to have, could you right now in this moment take care of that gift and prosper in that gift?

If the answer is not a certain yes then you too must ask the question, who do I need to be an order to maximize my gift and potential.

For example if my goal is to graduate college and eventually get my doctorate I have to be a studious student. If I want to be a trainer in a gym I must have the work ethic to make it to the gym more than once a week. If I’d like to be a singer I need to develop the vocal skills needed to perform often. In your life what who has God told you to be? Are you that person, are you trying to be that person or have you simply given up. Knowing is the first step of dramatic change so now that you know ask yourself, then prepare, and watch God transform your life. Selah #SLiM
