No matter where you are today, remember you are in the process of becoming. You are becoming better. You are becoming stronger and you’re becoming wiser. Remember it hardly matters where you start – but how you finish. Open up yourself today to allow change – to allow who you are in God to actualize in your life. It’s not too late – you are just beginning. To often we stay stuck in old ways of living and being and it’s time to say to yourself no more – I’m becoming. You are worth the best and you must not stop until it is acquired.
I am becoming today the best me I can be. Today I am embracing who I am and what I am called to do. Today I remove limits and all restrictions to living my best life. Today I rise above fear and walk in the love of my God and grab hold of the power He has released into the atmosphere. My mind is being renewed and transformed daily. I am becoming. I am empowered
Life hinges upon learning and growing – you will be developed along life’s path. Don’t reject opportunity for growth – stay flexible. Learn what needs to be learned – it will only help to polish you. You are becoming!
Remember today You are becoming and because you are becoming you can enjoy the process. You can learn to view life and the challenges of life as the vehicle to your becoming. Great things take time – nothing great just happens – it becomes.
Every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord. Lord, thank you for opening our eyes to a new day! As our feet hit the floor may the ground we walk on become blessed – leaving trails of goodness in every place. May your word remain upon our hearts – may it be the truth by which we live. Today Lord, we rise, go and are purposed to climb higher!
Good Morning Lovelies
The night before Thanksgiving, preparing to work the night shift, contemplating when even to begin cooking. Nothing like the sweet aroma of pies cooking and all types of delicious delicacies. Turkey, yams, stuffing all sound pleasing to my ears and even cause a little salivating to occur within my mouth. It will be the first Thanksgiving holiday residing in my new state of residence, and I had every intention to go home. When work calls, we just have to answer the call. As I think about it, holidays are when I most often wished I lived closer to my family. Still, I am excited. Excited to make new memories in which to share with my children. I am grateful! I choose gratefulness because it is something I try to live by every single day and not just one day out of the year. I’m thankful even to have this day or any day for that matter.
I think about the ones who may have experienced loss or ones who may not have any close relatives nearby in which to share this time. Holiday’s are not considered a joyous occasion for everybody, and somehow that fact always humbles me to not for one-second take for granted anything that I do have. It is my prayer that everyone feels a little love this day and every day. That means we must stretch ourselves a little more to show people that they matter and someone cares. Take some time out of your celebration and reach out to somebody, maybe that older adult who lives alone, that neighbor that has lost a loved one, etc. The possibilities are endless. Show you care!
No matter where I am spending my holiday I appreciate the life that God gives. I am grateful for all God continues to bestow upon my life, his mercy, his love his gift. I am also thankful for the food that will cover my table for the 3 of us. I even thank God for you. To the person that is reading this. Your life matters and you are important. If you find this time of year trying, I send you good vibes and well wishes for a blessed day. May something beautifully unexpected comes your way. May joy rise within you not just for this holiday but for every single day.
When the wind blows and it seems you’re diverted off your path
Relax and let it take you where it may,
for every wind is a messenger from above.
Here, It’s time to go this way!
So Today, the wind and I became friends,
no longer loathing it as the enemy.
Accepting, embracing and moving where it sends.
For when it ends, I would have then run into my destiny,
slowly, patiently arriving,
growing, bending, yet not breaking,
Reformed into a Christ-like identity.
Wind is that you I feel whisk across my face?
Faith Over Fear Psalm 56:3-4
We love comfortable. It’s true our beds must be just right, our coffee brewed to our heart’s delight and perhaps fluffy sock are preferable. We have to admit that sometimes comfortableness can be very very good. Then on the flip side, it can be very bad. When you are building a legacy, changing the game, building something that will outlast you requires stomping out it’s the greatest enemy and hindrance – comfortableness.
All the great people that have done great things before you probably weren’t so comfortable. They may have had ideas that were less than popular and that went against the grain. They destroyed the box that had a pretty prepackaged way of doing things, and they discovered the ingenious – the limitless possibilities of just daring to be different. Daring to dream things that took great doses of courage nobody else had. The power of believing that they were created for more and that the more wouldn’t come to where they were comfortable but to where they were drawn out into the deep where there was no certainty.
I never knew that I could swim and not sink until I was so deep in that there was nothing to hold me up but the courage that I must swim or drown in these waters of comfortableness.
What will you gain by taking a step?
Everyday you get the opportunity to set the tone of your day – positive or negative – you choose. The key to every new day its the refusal to reload yesterday on today’s canvas.
As Christians we must be the light that the world is yearning to see. There is so much going on in the world that it is now more important than ever for Christians to not only shine but to shine brightly. It should be our joy; it should be our living, moving testament to the goodness of God. What sets a christian apart from his non-christian counterpart? We go through some of the same trails and tribulations right? Yes! We encounter some of the same life ordeals that seek to pull the carpet from up under your feet. The difference is we serve a mighty God that sets every captive free – who heals and delivers. The God, who gave his only, begotten Son that You may live and not just live but live abundantly. That’s epic!
You are the salt and light of the earth. Be the one who holds your head up in trying times. Be the one to share how you came through. Be the one who holds on to that hope without wavering. Be the one who in the face of adversity can still stand and declare the favor of God. See tribulation is not what sets you apart – what sets you apart is that you stand on the promises of God not within your strength but the strength of God.
There are seven days in a week and we save our shout and our praise for Sunday. Don’t just leave leading souls to Christ to your pastor. What if you crossed paths through the week with someone who has been searching relentlessly for that ray of light that you have. God gets the glory when we allow our lives to be used for his glory in every place we tread.
In the same way, let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father, who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
To do something you never done – you have to create in ways you never created!
