As we continue to transform our minds, bodies, and spirits we have to consider timing. Everything works out the way it is supposed to if we take our hands off of it. Some things don't need you to give cents added to it. Be at rest knowing your Father has it. Babies don't know where their next meal is coming from but they know somebody's bringing me a bottle. I don't care who's holding they just want the bottle.
Like that baby, it's time to stop being anxious about everything and lay back in your Father's arms knowing he's got you.
It is finally Fall. While I enjoy parts of this season, likes sweaters, fire pits, and boots. I don't like the fact that it gets dark so early. That being said, What do you change in your routine when it gets dark earlier? How will you use this change of routine as a benefit to you?
If you are at home more when it's dark early will you read more? Will you gain some other kinds of healthy habits? I know it easy to start baking and cooking up heavy foods when it's cool but don't lose everything you worked on over the summer. Think about your fall/winter routines now so you won't be blindsided.
This morning I encourage you to focus on your life plan. Do you have a will, life insurance, and a burial plan? September is national life insurance month. Make sure you have some. It is selfish for you to say I'm not leaving nothing to these people.
The bible tells us that a good man leaves an inheritance for 3 generations after him. So, seriously you are not going to make sure your people can bury you and pay bills for at least one year after your passing. Your kids can walk up to my daddy's not here but here's my tuition in full window.
Friends we have got to do better in making sure the next generation is better prepared them we were.
Wow, it has been a crazy week. Sorry I missed a few days of posting. Sometimes we can get overwhelmed by to chaos of life. Friends take the time to take care of you. I know you are chuckling right now asking, are you taking care of yourself? LOL
I am in the process of moving some things around to eliminate that burning at both ends and the middle feeling. Massage/reflexology appointment being made. What are you doing to help yourself relaxed? What are you reading that renews your mind? What activities are you doing that will keep your body moving? It has been proven that the endorphins released during exercise bring renewal.
People, September is halfway through already. Wowzer! Where did the time go?
What tone do you set for your week? Girl, it's Monday, don't nothing good happen on Monday or do you enter your week speaking love and expectation into it? I don't care what television tells you. Monday's don't have to be bad. You have the power to speak whatever you want into your week.
There are so many people hurting in today's society. Problems seem to have no easy resolution. I believe there are so many people with the same lament as below. Lord, please hear me, acknowledge that I am in pain. Acknowledge that you are still there. Acknowledge that I am not alone, even though I feel like it.
Today I just want to remind you that God has not forgotten you. Yes, you might feel alone, but that is an illusion from the enemy. You have been heard and your situation is being worked out. It might not come in the time frame or package that you want, but the answer is coming. I am praying for each and every one of you that are experiencing trying times. Your situation will not last forever, this season will pass. I pray for nothing but God's favor to shine upon you and give you and of those that are going through hard times clear direction. Love you know I love you to life.
Sometimes in our transitional spaces, we still see the old us while others are beginning to see the new us. I encourage you to let go of the old you and embrace your new you. Yes, it is scary to let go of what you have always known but I promise you the woman that you are evolving into is a much better woman. Focus on your goals and don't let anything stop you. What does living your best life look like? Write it down. Take pictures and add them to it. Focus on what your good life looks like so you can stop focusing on the past. Baby, whatever IT is, is gone and you will not change it now. I know it is easier said than done but shake the dust off of your feet and keep pushing. Love you to life.
What is/are your September goal(s)? Take the time to sit down and write down the goal(s) you would like to accomplish in September. After writing it/them down also list who needs to help you accomplish this/these goal(s). Know your allies in accomplishing your goal(s) is helpful in pushing you toward the goal(s) on your paper. These lists must also be accompanied by an accountability partner. This person us there to keep your fire lit. Don't be afraid to ask for help. You do not have to have all if the answers.
Good morning, Grace and peace be unto you! Isaiah 26:3-4 says, People with their minds set on you,you keep completely whole, steady on their feet,because they keep at it and don’t quit. Depend on God and keep at itbecause in the Lord God you have a sure thing. Where is your mind today? Is it set on things above or on things of this earth? There are so many variables in our lives that can get us off track, depending on ourselves when we need to be totally dependent on God. Before you say it, yes I know being totally dependent on God is hard because we don't get say so and we are not in control but how has that been working so far? Me being in control of me is not always the best answer. I would venture to say it is the same for you. Sometimes I want to quit. Sometimes I want to throw in the towel. However, if I can stay focused on God he gives us the ability to keep focused and pushing forward. Life is hard but it's hard without him. Put your trust in your father. Lean back and relax your daddy has god you. He's a sure thing. Until tomorrow #liveBlessed #healthygirlsrock
Transformation can be very difficult and even more complicated when we are not sure exactly where our behaviors are coming from. Our friends over at Calm the Chaos created this handy dandy infographic to help you identify where your issue stems from. Once you know the root of the matter it is much easier to work through the issue. I will not say that it will be easy or quick but everything has a resolution if you are willing to put in the work.
