photo9Facing a new day I choose not take on negative energy . I want to sit and meditate on my life and all that God has allowed me to face . Five times I have stood in the face of death yet here I am writing almost daily to brighten someone’s day and give a pinch of hope for the broken hearted . We must teach ourselves how to focus on what’s important and to destroy any and every aspect of life that will not benefit you at all . Stop running back to past hurt and disappointments and choose to run towards a productive and joyful life . Don’t waste time worrying and dwelling on things that have taken a toll on you instead learn from those scenes and flashbacks and use them as a stepping stone towards a better you . Only you can make the decision to grow or to remain in ”failure-ville” …..

I often hear people say ” when life gives you lemons make lemonade ” , hmmmm ok but what does your lemonade taste like ?  Do you use honey , sugar or artificial substitutes ? Is it too sweet , tart , watery , too much lemon juice or not enough ?

I think the key to becoming successful is applying the right ingredients . When you use short cuts or cheaper products you don’t always achieve a great item . The taste is weird and lacks flavor or the presentation isn’t all it’s cracked up to be . Sometimes things look really good to the eye but once we make contact and feed on it the results are gross .

Stop looking at the surface of life and get involved in it’s contents . Use common sense and look at the things taking place as you recognize that sometimes it’s just not healthy nor worthy of your time .  In order to live one must learn the tactics of surviving so that at the lowest of times you won’t freak out and fall apart but instead pick yourself up and figure it out .  So while it’s great to make lemonade make sure that the ingredients you have give the most refreshing thirst quenching glass ever .

photo10No matter what you are facing today it will be better . If last night was so overwhelming that you cried yourself to sleep , today it will be better . When they come out against you and set out to destroy you , don’t worry today it will be better . David tells us that he would have fainted lest he saw the goodness of God . You have to realize that all you go through is just a test that will assist in making you better . Your life is a reflection of hard times , trails , tribulations , joy , tears , laughter and pain . All things work together for your good just allow it to come but never over think it . Strength comes from the experiences you have endured . The harder the test the stronger you become the greater the purpose the better you are for it . Nothing happens by chance so stop dwelling on the “woe is me ” and start to live . Wake up each day with a grateful and thankful heart knowing that you can handle it and it will be better today …..

Tunnel Vision

cropped-spa-zen-stones.jpgIt’s extremely hard to focus when you allow anger to cloud your view . You act ‘ out of character ‘  because you do not allow yourself the chance to really see what’s going on . Sometimes we gravitate toward the pain and hurt causing a physical breakdown of not only the body but the mind . Distractions and situations mixed with anger becomes a deadly cocktail . I personally struggle with an aggressive behavior and usually the anger combines and causes a typhoon of uncontrollable chaos. Hmmm , Jesus take the wheel and direct my pathway for today I struggle with misguided direction and anger has become the highway to my downfall . I don’t want to have negative vibes or presence , what I want is a humbling in my heart and my mind . If you can just grant me ”tunnel vision” I can keep my focus directly on you and the blinders will shield me from harm . I submit myself to prayer and ask to have peace in the midst of my circumstance , I know that I will survive I just need to keep my vision clear …..

Protection…

sitephoto5I pray for protection and coverage over your life . May God keep you hedged in from all the destructive behaviors of others , those that wish to do harm , those that have no regard for mankind . Watch over your people Lord and bless them in your Powerful name .

Yesterday my husband told me his co-workers where attacked by an older gentleman that became annoyed that they where working outside of his home . After asking them to move he came outside with a revolver and began shooting out the tires to both trucks  reloaded and shot multiple times into the engines of the vehicles.  You must always pray for yourself and those around you , tomorrow is not promised and neither is today . I am a firm believer in the power of prayer and I try to practice it every time sometime occurs or if someone crosses my mind . The Bible says :  men should always pray …..

I pray that you overcome the cares of this day and have a fantastic blessing poured upon you . I pray you let nothing upset you or take the happiness and joy away . I pray that you take the time to think on someone other than yourself  and help someone without expecting anything in return . May God take care of you all day long !!!!

Love and Blessings

 

Random thought…..

It’s late and I am up thinking about how people that claim to be Christ like function on a daily basis . Some are gospel artist some are well known ministers some are just everyday folk like you and me . They have done things that are not becoming or acceptable to Gods way BUT does this make them a hypocrite  ? Well I pondered this for a while and I don’t believe this to be entirely accurate .  In my opinion people make bad choices all the time ,  some seem to hang on for the long haul and others decide immediately that this is not pleasing in the sight of the Lord.  The truth is that we all fall short of Gods grace at some point in our life  and we all have a time when we remain in a unhealthy situation and walk out of his will. The bible tells us that we all have  sinned and fallen short so with that in mind why are we so quick to judge ? Why can’t we be like Jesus and look beyond their faults and see that their in need ? We as a nation are so judgmental towards any and everyone that isn’t up to our standards but what exactly are you doing in your life ? God says judge not lest you be judged .. 

Perhaps if we would stop looking at the faults of others and concentrate on getting our own lives together this world would be a better place to live in . You can’t peek into a persons life and start giving pointers if you’ve never spent one second in their shoes . As an Inspirational speaker I find myself being cautious of how I view people , and I realized that like myself people have short comings and have no desire to be constantly reminded of it each moment of each day . I think if we treated people as if we where literally looking at ourselves we would be more sensitive towards their feelings . There is a way to address a person if you notice something in them that needs to be changed .  Pray for them and ask God to guide their heart and mind as he leads them back on the right path . We are all like tadpoles in a great big pond just waiting for our turn to get out and grow ,  so treat folks like you want to be treated . If they do things you don’t approve of just remove yourself from the situation and do it in love not with condemnation . Lord make us more like you and less like ourselves so that we can be a positive motivation to all we connect with ……
