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!

Trust in the Lord. Thank Him for the closed doors and not allowing you to settle for second best. Not our will but yours be done Lord.  For every time you thought you were being rejected, He was re-directing you to something greater. May you ask God for peace when frustration from the enemy creeps in. Know that when no one else is listening, God is all ears. Be patient and be still. Of course God’s timing is not ours….Only His is PERFECT. Stop stressing about the timetable and trust the God who controls it. God knows what’s best for you and He has something great in your future.

Faith In God Includes Faith In His Timing

Good Monday Morning My Loves,

Today, let’s be reminded to trust in God’s timing. It’s better to wait a while and have things fall perfectly into place than to rush and have them fall apart. All of your days have been written in God’s book. When you go through disappointments and trials don’t stop on that page. Stay the course and keep believing. You may be tired, discouraged, irritated and frustrated, but don’t give up on your future. Have faith, our God is faithful.

Waiting is one of the most challenging undertakings we endure. We always want everything yesterday. Just rush, rush, rush! Faith in God includes faith in His timing. Stop rushing things that need nurturing and time to grow. God’s timing is always right on time, never early and never late. As much as you want to plan your life, it has a way of surprising you  with unexpected things that will make you happier than you originally planned. That’s what you call God’s will, relax and  let it be done. Faith makes things possible not easy. There is always a season of waiting before the season of fulfillment.

Just know if God is making you wait, He is going to give you much more than you asked for. To us in waiting, we feel like we are wasting time. To God, waiting is working. He is working for you and on your behalf even though you don’t see it.  Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Don’t mistake God’s patience for His absence. His timing is perfect and His presence is constant. He’s always with you.” No matter how long it takes, when God works, it is well worth the wait.

Today, increase your faith and decrease your doubt. Know that God is working on your behalf. Trouble don’t last always. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. 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.

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.

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!

Sometimes We Have To Just Be Still

Top of the Morning Loves,

Sometimes we just have to be still. We are always wanting to move and shake but sometimes we must sit and wait. To us waiting is wasting, to God, waiting is working. Periodically, all we can do is be silent and pray. It’s not easy, but I promise you it’s worth it. God will take care of you. Wait on the Lord, be of good courage and He will strengthen your heart.

To be still means emptying yourself from the incessant flow of thoughts and create a state of consciousness that is open and receptive…revealing clarity. 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. God speaks in the silence of the heart. He is waiting to hear from you, connect with you. In the silence of your heart, He will open your eyes to His amazing love and guidance.

Life can be filled with chaos and confusion. If you feel overwhelmed and you’ve lost your sense of direction it’s time to be still. When you feel overwhelmed and you’re tempted to take things into your own hands, you have to make yourself be still. The battle is not yours, it’s the Lord’s.  At the end of the day what God wants for you is better than you could ever want for yourself. God speaks to those who take time to listen, and He listens to those who take time to pray. When you take time with God and listen to His voice, He renews your strength and enables you to handle life.
