Inventory

Take a good look at yourself. Make a list of your talents and strengths. Thank the Creator for giving them to you.

When you focus on what you have instead of what others have, your thoughts align with your purpose. Coveting a talent someone else has takes away from your joy in the moment. God hardwired you exactly the way He wanted you. Go with it!

All of us are unique. It’s time to put your uniqueness on display…

Approval

When I was growing up, a frequent saying from the adults was, “what would they say?” Who is they???

The only approval we should strive for is the approval of God alone. When we live our lives in obedience to God, and we are trying to do what is good, right and noble, I’m guessing we are okay with God. Even when we slip we are okay with God. He never changes.

Live your life with the purpose the Creator put in you. Do your best. If you slide backwards, get yourself back on track. The infamous “they” have no authority over your life…

Pain

The holidays are difficult for me. When I was a child, year after year brought disappointment during Christmas. It wasn’t because I didn’t get what I wanted. We were a broken family, and all I really wanted was to fix us.

Many people are living with similar pain during this season. Be mindful. Be kind. Your kindness might make all the difference to someone…

Romance

Romance is fun and exciting, isn’t it? But it’s torture during those periods of pain. The reason there’s pain is because you care.

Relationships aren’t always happy and free of care. They can be messy. Other people can bring out the best in us, and sometimes the worst. Selfish behavior on our part makes us unreasonable and hard-headed. So how do we make certain we are being loving and kind, even when we don’t feel like it?

Let’s consider the words of The Apostle Paul when he wrote, “Love is patient and kind. It does not envy, does not boast, and it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

The word of God has power. Revere it, believe it and practice it…

The Battle Unseen

Are you aware there is a spiritual battle going on around us in a dimension we can’t see? Just because we can’t see it doesn’t make it any less real.

One third of the Angels in this realm are demons. The rest are God’s messengers, fighting on our behalf. Every trouble we have in this world is a spiritual battle. This is one of the reasons why prayer is so important. It demonstrates that we believe in God, that He can and will help us. Further, his word tells us he will.

Let’s step away from trying to control everything. Let’s allow God to do his thing. We will provide backup through prayer.

When you change the lens you see the world through and view everything in the spiritual realm, your mindset changes…

Turning It Over

God is speaking to us constantly. The noise of the world, distractions, work deadlines and more catch our focus and attention. But we have the power to change that.

What if we eliminated the noise by turning off the television for a few days? Sitting in silence while quieting our minds creates an uninterrupted connection with the Creator. He has our attention. Now let’s turn our hearts over to Him…

Seen

Everyone has a deep desire to be seen and heard. Yet some people don’t believe they are important enough to have a voice. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We were created by God. He doesn’t make mistakes, nor does He second guess himself. If we are important enough to have been thought of by the Creator of the universe, then all of us are important. We weren’t an afterthought.

Be the voice for others until they find their own. You and I are good enough for God, so we are good enough…
