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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

When Was The Last Time You Took Time To Be Thankful

Good Morning My Loves,

Giving Thanks
Have you thanked God for waking you up this morning? Start each day with a grateful heart. Today, take a few minutes to sit quietly and be thankful for all you have. Life is full of give and take, give thanks and take nothing for granted. Taking things for granted can result in those things granted to be taken away. It doesn’t matter if the glass is half empty or half full…be thankful you have a glass and there is something in it.

be-thankful1-blog

Be thankful in all circumstances of life. Your life, no matter how bad it is maybe another’s fairytale. Be thankful for what you are now, and keep fighting for what you want to be tomorrow. Nothing you have is by luck or chance. It’s all due to God’s favor and grace. Don’t wait to pray when there is a need. Pray and be thankful everyday for your blessings. If you can manage to be thankful in every situation, really believing that God is working everything out for your good, you will end up with the victory every single time.

You Are Amazing

Great Morning My Loves,

you-are-amazing-blog

Has anyone told you lately how amazing you are? Well let me tell you…YOU are amazing and capable of amazing things. Ephesians 2:10 says,”For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” You were created be do great works. It’s time to start believing in yourself, to invest in your own stock and watch how you increase. Stop telling yourself I can’t do this, or this is too hard. Nothing is impossible for God, impossible is His specialty.

If you don’t go after what you want, you will never get it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you never step forward, you will remain in the same place. You may face defeat in life, but never let yourself be defeated. I believe in you. You are truly amazing and have so much to offer this world. The pain you have been through can help someone else going through pain now. Listen to what God is laying on your heart and let Him guide you. God has the most amazing plan for your life, just trust, believe and have faith.

Today, just know that you are someone’s reason to smile. Even when you don’t see it, you are inspiring others by having courage to walk in your destiny. Never give up, never loose heart and always keep pushing. God loves you more than you can possibly know. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and an amazing blessing to others. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!

The Difference

Good Morning My Loves,
take-time-to-pray-blog

Today is going to be a beautiful day, speak it as though it were so. Each day you rise, take time to spend with God it makes a difference. I happened upon a poem by an unknown author that I would like to share with you called The Difference.

I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day. I had so much to accomplish that I didn’t have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task. “Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered He answered, “You didn’t ask.” I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on, gray and bleak. I wondered why God didn’t show me He said, “But you didn’t seek.” I tried to come into God’s presence. I used all my keys at the lock. God gently and lovingly chided, “My child, you didn’t knock.” I woke up early this morning and paused before I entered the day. I had so much to accomplish that I had to take time to pray.

take-time-to-pray-blog

Life is busy and we are constantly on the go but, we must take time to pray. God speaks to those who take time to listen, and He listens to those who take time to pray. If we can give time to social media, then surely we can give time to pray and spend with God. Praying is putting yourself in the hands of God and trusting Him. Sometimes all it takes is one prayer to change everything. He can do more in a second than we can accomplish in a lifetime. God is never too busy to listen, never be too busy to talk to Him.

Remember, take time to pray before you begin your day. A busy life makes prayer harder, but prayer makes a busy life easier to handle. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and more importantly a blessing to others. Pray for your family and friends, it’s the best gift you will ever give. I know you can do this because…..Great Is In You!

Don’t Let The Devil Steal Your Joy

Good Morning My Loves,

joy-blog

Today is a beautiful day, rejoice and be glad in it. Don’t let anyone or anything steal your joy. The enemy is busy. 1 Peter 5:8 says, “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” We must stay alert. There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict. Walk away, the battle they are fighting is not with you it’s with themselves. If allowed, the devil uses people too. You cannot let anyone’s ignorance, hate, drama or negativity stop you from being the best person you can possibly be.

Don’t-Let-Satan-Steal-Your-Joy-Because-He’ll-Try-To-In-Every-Way-He-Can-blog

Every morning take a good look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I’m going to have a great day and I refuse to let anyone steal my joy!” Misery loves company, never invite it in. This world is so full of hatred even when uplifting others it meets resistance. I refuse to be moved or succumb to the hatred of others and let it consume me. My mission is to uplift, motivate and encourage and I will not let the devil steal my joy and passing it on to others. He has tried it and the way my God is set up, no weapon formed against me shall prosper. God will not position you for greatness without preparing you for the position He assigned to you, to fulfill the promise He purposed for you. The giant in front of you is never bigger than the God who lives in you.

Sometimes it’s hard to be inspired when defeat is knocking at the door. Look to God, He is your source. Praise God in the face of your problems. Be encouraged. We’re more than conquerors through Him that love us. My hope for you today, that you are abundantly blessed. Be a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

When Was The Last Time You, Loved You

Great Morning My Loves,

love-you-first-blog

Happy Sunday! Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it Holy. Get up and take your families to church, they need it and deserve it. Today give yourself a hug….I’m sure you need it. Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have. Fall in love with yourself. Knowing how to love yourself is an important source of happiness. However, we are so busy trying to find happiness and love from others and things, that we forget the essence of true love and happiness needs to start from within. Self-Love is complete forgiveness, acceptance and respect for who you are deep down…all your beautiful and unsightly parts included. Oh my darling, it’s true beautiful things have dents and scars too.

love-yourself-blog

My Loves, you can’t pour from an empty cup. You, yourself, as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection. Make yourself a priority. Learn to be alone, without being lonely. Learn to admire your beauty, without finding fault in others. Learn to love yourself without the love of others. If I asked you to name all the things you love, how long would it take for you to name yourself? When there is no enemy within that you fight with, the enemies outside cannot hurt you. Be there for others but never leave yourself behind. You are a priority, not an option.

When you know your worth no-one can lower your appraised value. Be your own person, but collectively, a force to be reckoned with.  Let today be the day that you fall in love with yourself all over again. To fall in love with yourself is the first key to happiness and you deserve it. Be abundantly blessed with love all over today. Be a blessing to others and spread love. I know you can do this because…..Great Love Is In You!.

God Will Provide

Good Morning My Loves,

God-will-provide-blog

A sensational Tuesday to you. Today is the day! Have faith that today God will provide for you. Philippians 4:19 says, “But my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” God is making things happen for you. Even when you don’t see it. Even when you can’t feel it. Even if it’s not evident. God is working on your prayers. We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties. Whatever is worrying you right now, give it to God and forget about it. Trust that God is in control.

God’s plans will always be greater and more beautiful than all your disappointments. When you are down to nothing God is up to something. He is working in your life right now in ways you can’t understand. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. There’s no testimony without the test. Those who leave everything in God’s hand will eventually see God’s hand in everything.

Happy Independence Day

Good Morning My Loves,

patriotic-Blog

Happy Monday and Happy Independence Day! The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776 says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Galatians 5:13 says, “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Be thankful for this day my Loves. We have come a long way, yet, we still have a ways to go. Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you. Jesus Christ and the American Solider. One died for your soul and the other died for your freedom. Let us remember those who have gone on before us and let us thank God that such wonderful people lived.

Today, look around and thank God you were blessed with another day to enjoy your independence, your freedom.  Rachel Wojo has a wonderful Prayer for America I would like to share with you. “Father in Heaven. We, the people, in the land of the free and home of the brave, desperately need You. Oh that we would leave our ways of seeking to be blessed and instead seek to bless others. We beg for your guidance and wisdom for our leaders. We ask You to protect our land from enemies, both within and without. And we praise you for the FREEDOM we have through the blood of Your Son. May Your plan be the desire of our nation. Amen.”

Be abundantly blessed my Loves and more importantly a blessing to others. In your prayers, pray for our country. Pray that God keeps His hand on America. We need Him now more than ever. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOUR FREEDOM AND YOU!
