Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Isaiah 43:2 NLT
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. 

No matter how overwhelmed you might be right now, God has a life jacket waiting for you. Yes, there are times when you feel like you are drowning in the waters of life and being consumed by the fires of situational, but this is just temporary. Remember that temporary situations are just that, temporary. Don't set up a tent and live in the spots that were only designed to test us. 

Until tomorrow

Today is the best day of your life. Now I'm sure you read that and said um really? It's all about perspective. You have the ability  to call it into place. You realize that if each day going forward is better than the day before then it is the best day of your life.

Don't allow naysayers to pour salt in your kool-aid. You are awesome and are doing awesome things to infect, affect, and effect the world in positive ways. Continue to shine like the diamond that you are.

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Sometimes life can be going at such a fast pace that everything are you is a blur. I encourage you to take some time over this weekend to just sit down and clear your mind learn to quiet your spirit. Take 10 mins with no electronics, no other people and no disruptions to be quiet. Close your eyes and put out every thought that comes until you are at peace.

Yes, you may have some difficulty with this the first time you try it because your brain is accustomed to ruling you. Keep trying. Eventually you will learn how to slow the blur and enjoy the scenery.

Until Monday

He who did not spare [even] His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things? - Romans 8:32

Wow, some people wouldn't give a donut to someone let alone their whole child. When you really stop to think about this selfless act it really gets you have to truly be thankful. He is truly a good good father, that is concerned about his people.

No good thing will he withhold. What good things have you  been talking to him about? What confessions have you been making? Walk in the place of blessings.

In the words of Jonathan McReynolds I'm not lucky I'm loved. I am going to continue to implore you to guard your words as you transform your mind. Out of your words proceed your character. Character is what goes before you.

Frank Outlaw said, Watch your thoughts. They become words. Watch your words. They become deeds. Watch your deeds. They become habits. Watch your habits. They become character. Character is everything.

Have you ever met someone with whom their character flaws had preceded them? In a positive or negative way character is everything. 

As you are growing and changing you must maintain a good thought and word life. What you constantly feed yourself will show up. Eat too much sugar it shows up. Feed yourself a diet of negative thought. It shows up and nobody wants you at the table. You will be labeled the negative Nancy. If your name is Nancy I'm not talking about you bit the other one.

Today is the day to turn it around. Get your thought life together. Find you some positive books that feed your new thoughts. Play up lifting music. Start to listen to the conversations around you. Are the people in your circle reinforcing positive or negative?  Check your thoughts because they become your character.

Until tomorrow

Good morning,

I speak about the four agreements by Don Miguel Riuz often and agreement one has really been on me hard this week. Be impeccable with your word.

I look at and listen to all of the words that are being said. The are some that are right on point and some that stir up strife. While we have the ability to say what we want, when we want, where we want,and how we want. Should we?  Every day I am struck by the narratives that go out to numb the minds of those that are followers. Ask yourself. Am I follower? Do I make choices based on my research or do I just listen to the television and trust the person sitting behind the table because someone hired them to be the mouthpiece for the news?

My friend, I encourage you to think about the words you are saying. Truly examine where you got your ideas from and how they  serves you. If they are not serving you in a positive, uplifting way it is time to shift. Impeccable words start in your heart, move to your mind, and come out your mouth. Examine your words because they are a light into your heart.

Do you know what you are looking for and why this generation is so wrestles? Have you found your purpose? That what that moves you with passion. If not read this.

He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]—yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end. - Ecclesiastes 3:11

Sometimes people take it upon themselves to determine their future but God has a plan if we will seek him. There is an appropriate time for everything. A good idea at the wrong time is a bad idea every day.

It goes o to say that divine purpose has been planned for you. If you don't know your purpose seek him. Also pay attention to what gives you energy. You divine purpose is the thing that you don't always pay attention to but when you are doing yiu kind of buzz with excitement. It is the thing that is easy for you to do. When you have a purpose nothing else will satisfy. It is like being thirsty on a hot day. Pop is good, kool-aid is great, but only water will truly satisfy. Find your source of water, only it will satisfy your longing.

How many of you understand that change is hard but it is inevitable? Every day that you wake up you and I are changing. Every minute we are a little bit older and hopefully a little wiser.

I remember when my grandparents got their first microwave. They could not understand that the timing had to be different than putting the item in the oven. More often than not they just used the stove because it was easier for them. Change for them was a challenge but did eventually happen. LOL This is a funny one because everyone can see their senior grandparents trying to figure out the technology, but what is God bringing into your life to challenge you to change?

For many of you,  it is not a microwave but it may be technological. Are you supposed to use technology to reach the world? Are you supposed to share with people in a way that you have never done it before? Are you being placed in new environments because you have asked for your territory to be enlarged?

Change is happening whether you want it to or not, so jump aboard and move to the place that God is calling you to. Change is not a cuss word. If you don't move you can't be mad when those that were with you, surpass you. Accept the challenge.

Today is the first day of a new work week, but you need to decide If that is all it is to you, or is day one of your recharge. See it doesn't matter what day you begin your recharge, it just matters that you get plugged in.

I have this cool garmin watch it tells me all kinds of information about my exercise habits, or some days the lack thereof, whole telling me the time. While it has a long batter life every now and then I have to take it off so it can charge up.

My sister take the time to recharge your battery. Find out what gets you fired up. Your electricity might just be what someone else needs to keep going. Decide if today is just the first day of the week or if it's day one of your recharge.

Good morning,

Psalms 116: 1-2 AMP
I love the Lord, because He hears [and continues to hear] My voice and my supplications (my pleas, my cries, my specific needs). Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I will call on Him as long as I live. 

If we are all honest we all want someone who really listens and truly hears what we are saying. Sometimes we even expect other people to be able to read our thoughts and unlike the Lord, they can not. So, it is so good that even if I only cry out within my heart he still hears that cry. But, I am so thankful that as I open my mouth and cry out to God that he always listens. 


I challenge you to talk to him today. Until tomorrow

Whatever you do on a regular basis becomes your habit. The only problem with a habit is you can do it without thinking. I don't know about you but I have been on a mission and my car took me to work. My intended destination was not work, but habit drove me there.

I challenge you to examine your life today. What things in your life are driving you? You don't know why you are doing what your doing its just habit. If said habits are not serving you, building you, and igniting you toward greatness it is time to abandon them. You have to be seeking greater for your life.

Everyone has a story. Who is your story supposed to inspire? Way too often we don't share our stories because we are afraid if being judged. There are afraid that role will hold it against them, so we sit on our story/testimony. You didn't go through all of that he'll and survive to sit on it. Somebody in or around your circle of influence needs to hear it. They need to know that they can make it. They need to know that like you, they don't have to look like what they have been through. 

Don't sit on your story/testimony. It is proof of how you can come out if the fire and not smell like where you've been. You might have a scar as a reminder but you came out. Don't hide where you came from because it builds character and lends an experience that can't be gained any other way. 

Telling your story does not mean all the fine details or parts that would incriminate others. It is not your job to ruin other people but for you to share how you overcame. As you tell your story you find new freedom each time. It doesn't matter how many times you have shared there will someone new that hasn't heard you so don't allow familiar faces keep you from sharing.

High and lifted up in all the earth is who you are. High and lifted up in all the earthis who you are. Lord we exalt your name. Lord we exalt your name. Oh Lord we praise you. Oh Lord, high and lifted up.

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord . - Isaiah 54:17

What weapons have been coming against you lately? Anger, impatience, lack of self-control, lust? The list could go on and on. One thing is for sure, if you are doing a work for the Lord the enemy is going to fight the outcome. You notice I didn't say he is going to fight you, but he is fighting the outcome. The enemy never wants to see free and victorious so he will use any method and roll over any person that gets in his way. You are just the vessel that gets the work done. Don't take it personal. He is not trying to kill you personally but the outcome.

The scripture let's us know that weapons of mass destruction have been formed and launched but they won't succeed. Then it goes on to say that all of those that feel like they need your name in their mouth will be condemned. Stop trying to get them told let God handle it.
