You Are Where You Are Supposed To Be

Good Morning My Loves,

I hope when you opened your eyes this morning, you gave thanks to God for another day. Always wake up with a heart of thanks and gratitude, for in this very moment, trust and believe you are where you are supposed to be. Whatever happened over this past year, be thankful for where it brought you. Where you are is where you’re meant to be. Nothing that has happened to you is a surprise to God. God will still get you to where you’re supposed to be. Where you are today is no accident. God is using the situation you are in right now to shape you and prepare you for the place He wants to bring you in tomorrow. Trust Him with His plan even if you don’t understand it.

Faith is moving forward even when you are scared to death. Focus on where you want to go, not where you are currently.  God’s plan will always be greater and more beautiful than any of your disappointments. God will not give you more than you can handle. If you face a big challenge, you have a big destiny. From dark clouds we get precious water. From dark mines we get precious jewels…and from our darkest trials comes our greatest blessings from God. Trust in His word and His process that you are right where you are supposed to be.

Absolutely! I know it’s difficult right now but tell yourself it will all be worth it. God will give you double for your trouble and triple for your trials just give all of your fears and anxieties to Him. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and know you are right where you are supposed to be. Be a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

Speak Life: Declare And Decree Over Your Life Daily

Good Evening My Loves,

Choose to speak life over your life daily. What does this mean? Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. Feed it faith, truth and love. Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death.” Therefore watch what you speak and declare from your mouth. If you want to change your life, begin by changing your words. Start speaking the words of your dreams, of who you want to become, not the words of fear and failure. Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit….what you profess is how you choose.

The words you speak become the house you live in. Destroy any negative thoughts when they first appear that is when they are the weakest. Your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions and your actions, a blueprint for your life.  It’s impossible to live in a positive world  jailed in a negative mind. One place you cannot hide from is your own conscience. Open your mouth if only what you are about to say is more beautiful than silence. Talking about our problems are our greatest addiction. Break the habit and talk about your joys.

power-in-the-tongue-blog

Everyday you wake up, declare and decree how blessed you are. Life is a gift wake up and realize that everyday. Speak life in abundance, favor, blessings and wisdom. Everything you’ve ever wanted or ever wanted to become is waiting for you to speak it into existence. A bad attitude can literally block love, blessings and destiny from finding you. Don’t be the reason you don’t succeed. Use your power to speak an amazing life into your life. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. Speak life over all you do, I know you can do this because….Great is in you!

Don’t Focus On The Storm Focus On God

Good Afternoon My Loves,

In life, the forecast doesn’t always call for clear skies with sunshine.  Some days there will be storms and bad weather. Don’t focus on the storm, focus on the one who can calm it. True faith is keeping your focus on God when the world around you is falling apart. Sometimes the hardest storms to weather are the ones your soul needs most. God will either shield us from it, or take care of us in it. We always want God to hurry and calm the storm, but He wants us to find Him in the midst of it first.

Ask yourself…Will your chains break your praise, or will your praise break your chains? Just know that the safest place in all the world is in the will of God. Don’t confuse your path with your destination. Just because it’s stormy now doesn’t mean sunshine isn’t in the forecast. Keep your focus on God. Sometimes you will just have to hang on and trust that life’s storms are carrying you to better shores. Don’t tell God how big your storm is, tell your storm how big your God is. Just because you are in a stressful situation doesn’t mean you have to get stressed out! You may be in the storm, the key is don’t let the storm get in you.

Don’t you know God is up to something or the devil would not be fighting you this hard. The struggle you are in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. God doesn’t make mistakes, He is preparing you for your destiny. Don’t focus on the storm, that’s the enemy’s way of taking your attention off of God. When we complain about our current situation, we stay in it. When we praise God in the midst of it, He raises us out of it.  Every storm in life is followed by a rainbow. Be encouraged, be uplifted and be still…God is in control. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

What Goes Around Comes Right Back Around

Good Evening My Loves,

I hope you’ve had a fabulous day. Today for me was a wonderful day. I really enjoy talking with older people because they share so much wisdom. Our topic today, what goes around comes back around. When someone has wronged you, no point in setting out for revenge because if they have wronged you with ill or malicious intent…rest assured it will come back around again. what-goes-around-comes-around-blog

Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Be careful how you treat people, what you do to others has a funny way of coming back on you. So be mindful of your actions, as we will reap what we sow. “Everything comes full circle. It doesn’t matter what it looks like now. Good people have better things coming and bad people have bad things coming. As long as the world is turning, what goes around will come around. Man sees the now, but God knows the future. Man judges what you show, God knows your heart. You’ll get what you deserve so make sure your heart is in the right place! You can’t hide it from God.”-Tony Gaskins.

Whatever a man sows, that he will reap also. You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequences of your choice. The best way to understand hurting another is if you’re in the same shoes. So be careful how you treat people. Be very mindful of your actions and never do anything out of spite or anger. Give it to God and He will contend with those that contend with you. Be abundantly blessed this evening and bless someone else. I know you can do this because….Great IsIn You!

Miracles Are On The Way Just Keep The Faith

Good Morning My Loves,

Miracles are on the way, just keep the faith! When you least expect it, God answers and miracles happen. Pray until your situation changes and when it does change continue to pray for guidance. Have faith in God to lead and guide you. Learn to expect a miracle. Prepare for it as though it were so. Believe that all things are possible. Against all odds, against all logic continue to have faith.

Many have given up on their dreams and downsized what they have believed for because of the times we are in. I’m here to tell you to shake the devil off in the name of Jesus. God’s kingdom is an ever-increasing kingdom and He is for advancement not retreat. It’s time for the tables to turn. Yes, you have gone through a tough time of testing and kept the faith. Faith doesn’t make sense, it makes miracles. The injustices, unfairness and wrongdoing you have experienced will not go unnoticed. God has taken all them into account and He is going to turn the tables of trials into miracles as only He can. God is greater than any giants you face, He is in control.

Praise God In The Sunshine And The Rain

Good Afternoon My Loves,

God deserves praise when the sun is shining in your life and when there is rain. Everybody wants happiness nobody wants pain, but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain. There are two times to praise God…when you feel like it and when you don’t. Praise Him in the midst of the storm, when it’s dark and dim and the lights go out. Just hold on my Loves…. God is just switching off the lights before He throws a surprise party in your honor.

Praise-God-In-The-Rain-blog

To be able to dance in the rain, you must first learn to praise Him in the storm. In this life, you can’t wait for the storm to pass to praise His name, that’s when you need Him the most. Don’t just pray when you’re in trouble. God wants to hear from you when your life is going great and when you’re going through grief. Don’t be a fair weather Christian. He deserves to be praised! Just know after the rain He sends a rainbow. He is just preparing you, because after the storm, He will calm you. After the night, He blesses us with a beautiful new morning. And after an end there is a new beginning.

Priase-God-blog

Don’t let the enemy confuse you with problems and remove your focus from God. He will try to keep you busy, confused and depressed where you feel like you can’t pray or don’t have time. Don’t be fooled, everyday seek God from whom all your strength comes from. We may not like the storm, but our heavenly Father knows we need the rain to cleanse us. I want you to be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

Don’t Be Afraid To Let God Use You To Do His Will

Good Morning Loves,

Open your heart and let God use you for His glory. Don’t leave this earth having let everyone use you but God. He is not interested in what you don’t have, but the things you do have that you can give Him. God can use anyone. All that’s required is that we be willing to let Him use what we have for His glory. We don’t have to shine, we have to let Him shine through us.

use-me-Lord-blog

God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible. What a pity we plan to do only the things we can do ourselves. God has a bigger plan for our suffering than us simply surviving through it. It is in our struggles, in our weakness, in our darkest moments that we grow most in Christ. Don’t frown on your hardships, allow God to use them as training ground for building up your faith and drawing you in for a closer relationship with Him. God won’t use what you’ve lost, He will use what you have left. Don’t be concerned with your flaws, we all have them. Learn to let go and let God use you right where you are. Stop using God and let God use you. Broken things can become blessed things if you let God do the mending.

Let-God-Shine-Through-you-blog

Life lived well is letting God use you, your weaknesses, and your story, for His glory. When you let God use you, your story can bless someone who is going through the same things you’ve experienced. Your greatest misery can become your greatest ministry…just let go and let God. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. Open your heart and let God use you. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

Hold On! God Is Not Trying, God Is Doing

Good Morning My Loves,

This morning, thank God for another beautiful day. Whenever you don’t understand what is going on in your life, just hold on. God is not trying, God is doing. God is fighting your battles, arranging things in your favor, and making a way even though you can’t see Him working. Hold on and have faith. Your current situation is not  your destination. Because with God, just like that everything can change.

hold-on-blog

I know holding on and waiting is hard. Sometimes it’s in our best interest that we just be still and wait on the Lord. There is no point in traveling when you have no directions, that’s how you get lost. The same is relevant in your walk with God. He will lead and guide you, just hold on. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. You can trust God with your life, after all He did give it to you. Just know God has a plan even when we don’t. Everything that the enemy has stolen, God will give you double for your trouble. Know you’re in good hands. Where God guides, He provides. All you have to do is hold on change is coming.

hold-on-to-God-blog

I just want to leave with you today to hold on to God knows what He is doing. You may not have a perfect view right now on the climb to the top, but wait until you get to the top and can see the whole picture. That’s when what God has been up to becomes clear. The pain you’ve been feeling is nothing compared to the joy that’s coming. If God intends it, nothing can prevent it. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…Great Is In You!

 

When You Are Still Your Clarity Will Be Revealed

Good Evening My Loves,

Be still….two of the most simple words, yet one of the most challenging tasks. When being still, clarity aligns in your life. In stillness, many things become clear as though your vision and focus is fine tuned. Stillness is a powerful tool. The quieter you become, the more you can hear. To hear the whisper of God, you must turn down the volume of the world. Find time to disconnect from everything around you and be still in His presence today.

be-still1-blog

When you are still, clarity will be revealed to you. In chaos no one can concentrate or hear from God. In silence His whisper is sweet music to your ears. Be at peace with being still. We always feel we must be “Doing Something,” to be fulfilled when sitting in silence is all the “doing” you need. The answers you seek never come when the mind is busy, they come when the mind is still. Quiet the mind and the soul will speak. Be still, the Lord will fight for you. Your decisions become easier when your will to please God outweighs your will to please the world.

waiting-for-god-blog

When we give ourselves permission to be still, God can speak great things into our hearts. Be still in the presence of the Lord and wait patiently for Him to act. God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and a lot of faith, but in the end it will be well worth the wait. Jeremiah 29:11 says, ” For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Know that in your stillness God is in control. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…Great Is In You!

If You Water Your Own Grass It Will Be Just As Green

Good Evening My Loves,

I hope today has been a day of fulfillment and blessings. Be thankful for right where you are today and the things you have. So often, we walk outside and instead of  tending to and watering our own lawn we are too busy admiring someone else’s. If you take time to admire and water your own grass it would be just as green. While there is nothing wrong with admiring another’s lawn, we often don’t get an opportunity to see all the hard work, sweat and dedication invested into the final product. All we see is the beauty and curb appeal.  Whoever always looks for greener grass on the other side, will never be able to appreciate the green grass that is right under their own feet the whole time.

greener-grass-blog

The same concept applies to our attitudes in life. We tend to see the sun shining and rainbows appearing in another’s life but weren’t there to experience the storms, hurricanes and tornadoes. Don’t judge someone’s life by the chapter you walked in on. If you continuously compete with others you become bitter. If you must compete with anyone, compete with yourself to be better than you were the day before. When you compare yourself to someone else, that’s when you start losing confidence in yourself. You are the sole person capable of placing shackles on the feet of your own joy. Fortunately, you are also the one who holds the key.

You can admire the beauty of someone else without questioning your own. A flower does not think of competing with another flower it just blooms. Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, we were all created equal. We are unique and incomparable…you are you and I am I. Just because you aren’t where they are doesn’t mean you don’t have what it takes or your blessings aren’t coming. What you have to do is appreciate right where you are, in your own yard, on your own grass and water it to grow and it will be just as green as any other.

Tonight as you retire for bed, remember you are enough. You are right where you are meant to be and when it’s time for your divine appointment God has set for you, nothing in the world can keep you from it. Keep watering your own grass in faith and watch what God blooms in your front yard. You are meant to be in this very moment my Loves. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…Great Is In You!
