I was speaking to my mentor this week and she really gave me a burst of inspiration. She told me that we all have the ability to be great, we have to simply stop making excuses. There are a million reasons why we haven’t kept our commitments (even to ourselves), whether it’s a workout plan, passion project, or even setting time aside every day to pray. There will always be a reasonable excuse to let you out of the very thing that you want to do for you.
I want to encourage you to throw away at least one excuse… today. Choose one task that has sat on the shelf and make the decision to hold on to it today. Take ahold of it today and make the time to start it. Don’t try to figure out how its going to be completed, just make the decision to start!
You must see this incredible testimony of a woman who was told that she would never sing after she was poisoned in life. BUT THE POWER OF GOD! Take a moment and check out this interview and let me know how this clip touches you.
Ok, guys its that time again. It’s time to learn the power of forgiveness!
What is there to gain by learning how to forgive? Here are some benefits of forgivenesss:
Improved mental health.
Less anxiety, stress, and hostility.
When you are able to move past a mistake someone has made against you, you then open a new door that is elevated past the experience and welcomes you into a world of development and maturity. You are now saying to the world that you can not be held captive to past pains and circumstance.
This New Freedom exudes love not only in your work relationships, or school, but in your personal relationships as well. You no longer have to be stressed by things that happened to you or feel hostile about the things that happened around you. You now become a person who holds the key to every door you wish to walk through. Instead of feeling like you’re being dragged through every door that life throws at you.
Remember. Forgiveness equals freedom. Stop by next week and learn the steps of forgiveness.
I love the topic of forgiveness because it truly is a topic of freedom. How can an individual be free from an event or painful happening in their life? One answer I found was through a psychology class and the answers aligned up with the word of God. I am going to introduce one step at a time and id like you to join me on this courageous journey. Each week we are going to take another step words the freedom of forgiveness. Enjoy these topics from Psychology today and let me know what you think!
To experience forgiveness, try this exercise from Psychology Today:
Emotional Action Step. Be Bigger Than Anger–Practice Forgiveness Now
Identify one person you’re angry with. Start with someone low on your list, not your rage-aholic father. Then you can get a taste of forgiveness quickly. After that, you can proceed to tackle more challenging targets.
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
Today the quote “be you bravely” came across my Instagram and I immediately thought of these last few seasons in my life. No matter what has or has not transpired, God keeps finding a way to remind me that I am His child, I hold His promises in my life, and I succeed because I have Him which is the success. You see, the world would like to forget who you are and exchange a kingly robe for a weapon… but I challenge you today to apply the word of God to your trials. Seek first the kingdom of God and watch your issues become the foundation of the greatest breakthrough yet! Selah.
Tonight I want you to remember who you belong to, if you are a child of God then put down your weapon and pick up your crown! Selah.
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!!!!
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!
In my spirit today I kept hearing deep and wide… I said ok God what are you telling me today? He said to me that we His people have to look for Him in multiple dimensions. Sometimes in our relationship with God we keep things redundant. Pray in the morning, church on Sunday, Wednesday maybe, but what’s fresh and new in your relationship with God? Take a moment to think about it. How do you keep the relationship alive with God?
If you have no answer then this word is for you! Today ask God to make your relationship with Him fresh. Look for God on your job, at the store, with your best friend. Switch things up and intentionality look for an opportunity to enjoy God and for God to enjoy you!
In this year we have to have a fufilled existence by tuning into God daily. This worship almost through my entire day off because I was so enthralled by the love of God not only in my life but the life of everyone around me.There is a movement of intimacy with God happening right now in the spiritual world and I don’t want you to miss it! Please take a moment and Enjoy the worship below.
