Say Hello to Today

Hello, today:

There is a motto that I say to myself at the beginning of the day. “Hello today, what happened yesterday is gone and what will happen today is up to me; so, choose peace, choose love, and choose excellence.” When you choose peace, you are choosing not to get involved in the negative energy of the day. When you choose to love you forgive quickly and look for a way to bless the people around you. When you choose excellence, you make the decision to go above and beyond, to give the day you’re very best, not just the minimum. So, if you haven’t already… say hello to today and be blessed! Selah

You have voice, use it!

We have all had times where inside the Holy Spirit said “NO… Speak UP… Don’t do that …. Don’t go there” but do we listen to that voice?  This year I have learned to value the God in me. What do I mean by that? It means I am not just going to go along with things anymore just to make the people around me more comfortable. It means I will no longer hold my tongue when everything in me says “ Speak UP.” These things may sound easy for you to do, but for me, it has been a process. In the name of “protecting others feelings,” I dimmed the light God game me to shine. So now I honor the voice God gave me by using it. Selah. #SLiM

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

Welcome back to meditation Monday!!!!!  In life, we need to learn how to turn off the “busyness” of life a tune into God. Sometimes the simple quiet moment is the very thing you need to reenergize your mind and soul. Enjoy this meditation session with Dr. Michael Beckwith.

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.

Fearlessly Happy

Today I want to encourage you to smile! Really smile without inhabitation, grace and accept the potential for more smiles. You are worth a great day, some good news, a great year. Stop waiting for something bad to happen and enjoy each moment for what it is. Your worth it… and let me tell you a secret, God wants it for you. Selah #SLiM
