Meditation Monday:

Do you know how to center yourself? We are constantly receiving information from people, social media,  employers, magazines and more that shape and mold how we see ourselves and how we experience our life. It is essential for you and me to know how to recalibrate our daily experiences and know how to get quiet in front of GOD.

This is where meditation comes in, Mediation Monday is an intentional opportunity for you to be quiet and allow God to speak to you.  Take a moment today and sit in silence. Allow Gods peace to come in and reinvent your day. Selah

Meditation Monday:

Hello friends,

it is time to slow the day down and regain some of the peace you may have lost today. Meditation, I have found, is an incredible way to simply stop and get quiet with God. Sometimes we come to God in our prayer time or thoughts with so many questions and comments but have you ever considered listening to what God wants to say to you? That is my purpose behind meditation, quieting my mind and spirit so that I can hear what God is saying. Click the link below and join me here Mondays for “Meditation Mondays.” #SLiM

Welcome back to meditation Monday! Today we are going to tune into the aspect of worship. One of the most amazing ways to block out the world, and tune into the internal voice of God inside of you… is through worship.

Worship a key that ignites the faith inside of you. When you slow down your day and make positive proclamations about God and life, God then pours His joy, His peace, and His goodness over both you and your situation. Psalms 49:10 says ” be still and know that I am God” acknowledging God and His greatness in spite of anything going on around you is the solution to your restlessness, stress, and anguish.

 

Check out this group called The Walls Group and their song “MY Worship”  … Get to a quiet place and tune into the love of God. Selah

One of the greatest challenges in being “great” is developing patients. Patients to keep learning, keep pressing, keep smiling, keep being kind, to keep being hopeful even when things look to be going opposite of your way. Patients is one of the fruits of the spirit which is love.

True love says that “For God so loved the world that He gave” so giving is the personality of God and the personality of love. Why is it important to know this??? Because if you are in a relationship with God, then you must understand that love makes you wait because love perfects your gift before giving it to you.

For example, I can run to Walgreens and pick up any card and any gift, put it in a random bag and give my husband the present.  But… because I love him, I go to the store look for a gift that would make him smile. I take the time to go up and down each aisle until I find something he would love and enjoy. Lastly, I choose a bag to wrap this gift into something that makes the present shine.  If I love my husband enough to do all of this, how much do you think God loves us.

Yes, God wants us to have what we need and desire, but He doesn’t want to give it to us haphazardly. God takes His time, chooses the best gift with the best wrapping delivered in the best time so that it’s not only appreciated but cherished. Today, exercise patients and watch God bless you with a gift greater than you ever expected.

A true Father takes the lead

I love my Bishop Holcomb… He just knocked me out of my see with a revelation. So many times in our relationship with God, as Christians, we tend to think that life in Christ means a life without problems when that is not true. Life with Christ means that no matter what situation you are in, God is able to help you!

Bad things happen to all people, but because you have God, you have tools such as increased PEACE and His POWER so that you can handle the bad!!!!

How????

Like this- When you have an understanding that God is greater than your trial or tribulations, you then understand that in God everything will be alright. God extend His power to us so that when trials come, we can rest easy because as Christians we understand the victory is already ours. Now it’s time for you to tell yourself who wins … the enemy which may also be called your situation, or God?  When you choose God, you are taking your hands off of the situation and allowing God to lead. The beauty of God leading is that He is a guaranteed win, there is not a failure in God… Don’t believe me, read your word.

You can go ahead and shout now… that’s life changing information!

What do you see #vision

Every morning you and I have the opportunity to wake up to stress and anguish or expectation and possibility!  The choice is yours, with the life God gives you an incomparable gift called POSSIBILITY. You and I have the opportunity today to choose Joy over frustration, Peace over anxiety, Longsuffering over a short temper, Kindness over curse words, Love over hatred.  But you have to answer the question ” What do you see?” If you choose negativity, you’ll receive negativity.

In the word of God it is said like this Joshua 24:15- Choose ye this day who ye will serve! Through our thoughts, words, and vision for the day, we give power to what we want out of our life. Choose today as the first of many where you see greatness, prosperity, and abundance in your life. Not just for tangible items but of love, peace, and wellbeing. Selah

At peace with yourself

A Christians we can put so much effort into forgiving all of the people who have done wrong by us, only to reject our own imperfections. While it’s important to acknowledge and repent for things we do that are not of God, it is also equally crucial that we then forgive ourselves just as our Heavenly Father does to us.

This year take yourself off of the hook, we are all imperfect in some way, see fault then forgive the fault. The bible says in Matthew 11:28-” come to me all you who are weary and I will give you rest.” The bible doesn’t say come to me all who is weary and burdened then take the burden back and hold on to it until your sick, stressed out, and depressed! God is love and he wants you to be free to love not only people around you but YOURSELF!!! Take a moment today to forgive yourself, you’re worth the love you try so hard to show to others.

Peace..Selah

The truth about #problems

Problems are not STOP signs, they are guidelines. When we encounter a trial or struggle, we are actually faced with an opportunity.  An opportunity to grow, seek God, be silent, speak up… grow up.  The next time something trivial happens in life, ask God to show you the glory in it.

I know this sounds crazy or like I’m trying to be deep, but I’m serious.  Ask God in your next problem “what is is that you would like me to learn?” Then as you build that muscle of trust between you and God, you will see a problem coming a mile away and saY “Ok God lead me to the solution where I will be stronger and wiser in the end!”

Change your mind… Change your LIFE!
