Accept God’s Timing

God gives us hopes and dreams for certain things to happen in our lives, but He doesn’t always allow us to see the exact timing of His plan. Although frustrating, not knowing the exact timing is often what keeps us in the program. There are times when we might give up if we knew how long it was going to take, but when we accept God’s timing, we can learn to live in hope and enjoy our lives while God is working on our problems. We know that God’s plan for our lives is good, and when we entrust ourselves to Him, we can experience total peace and happiness.

The book of Genesis tells the story of Joseph, who waited many years for the fulfillment of the dream God had given him. He was falsely accused and imprisoned before the time came for him to do what God had shown him he was to do. Exodus 13:17-18 tells us that God led the Israelites the longer, harder way on their journey to the Promised Land because He knew they were not yet ready to go in. There had to be time for their training, and they had to go through some very trying situations. They wasted a lot of time wondering about God’s timing, but God never failed to take care of them and show them what He wanted them to do. The same is true in our lives. It was many years after I received my call from God in February of 1976 before I finally began to see major fulfillment of what God had called me to do. God’s training period simply requires us to do what He tells us to do when He tells us to do it…without questioning or trying to figure everything out.

Walking In Faith

Walking In Faith

Don’t Be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t Be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Sincerely, there is no need for faith when things are working fine. Walking In faith means that you must actually be in need or lacking in an area of your life. Therefore, if God said without faith, it is impossible to please Him, He also means that without you being in challenging period, it is impossible to please Him.

The bible says in James that you should count it all not when you’re experiencing challenges, because the challenges you are going through would actually produce what God is looking for in your life. As a Christian, you must decide to trust God for what He has in stick for you.

Let God be true, no matter what you are going through in life. There must be famine or lack in life, but note that lack is not a permanent thing in life No body lacks anything forever. It is just a temporary experience. Stay in it, learn the lessons that cone with it, and then move forward.

Lack is a part of life. We will not always have everything we want, but we can go through it and become better tomorrow. During lack, you .ist uphold godly standards, always putting God first in your life and remaining in His presence. Everything will definitely work out for your good.

Put all your faith in the Lord because He is too faithful to fail.

Things You Forgot To Thank Yourself For

Things You Forgot To Thank Yourself For

We’re always thanking our friends and family for their support and the incredible things they do for us but we sometimes forget that we should thank ourselves as well for the things we go through and how at certain times we make it completely on our own. Here are some of the things you should thank yourself for:

1. For trying to be a better person. Thank yourself for trying to be a better friend, or a better partner or better to your parents. Thank yourself for going out of your way to help someone. Thank yourself for going the extra mile for a friend who truly needed your support.

2. For not giving up. During your finals, during stressful work weeks and during difficult times. Thank yourself for pulling yourself together and enduring the anxiety and the pain that you had to go through. Thank yourself for making it out of the storm in one piece.

3. For taking care of yourself. Thank yourself for trying to take care of yourself first before you can take care of others. Thank yourself for the times you had to focus on yourself and did a great job. Thank yourself for understanding that you have to always work on yourself because this is the person you will truly live with forever.

4. For trying to achieve your dreams even if they didn’t happen yet. Thank yourself for trying to go to school again, for trying to ask for a raise, for trying to look for another job, for trying to move to a new country. Thank yourself for the awareness you have that you need to dream bigger and do better.

5. For letting someone you loved go. Thank yourself for letting them be, for moving on even when it was hard, for trying to forget them when you didn’t want to and for doing your best not to contact them when it was all you ever wanted. Thank yourself for protecting your own heart.

6. For the moments of weakness. Thank yourself for giving yourself permission to eat that cheeseburger or skip the gym for a few weeks. Thank yourself for telling someone how you truly felt. Thank yourself for knowing that you are not perfect but there are perfect moments where you just have to be unapologetically you.

7. For making mistakes. Thank yourself for the decisions that were not so great, it means you’re learning, it means you’re evolving and it means you’re growing wiser and stronger. Thank yourself for not allowing your mistakes to define you.

8. For your kindness. Thank yourself for doing something selflessly, for giving something without expecting anything in return, for sharing your experiences or stories with people who could benefit from it and for being kind to yourself when the world is being hard on you.

9. For embracing the chaos of life. Thank yourself for keeping a smile on your face when you’re sad, for waking up and participating in life when you feel the weight of the world crashing down on you, for going out when all you want to do is stay home and for believing that things will get better even though you’re not sure. Thank yourself for trying to live your life – no matter how unpredictable and messy it can be.

10. For all the things you do that make you proud. For the little things and the big things. For the things that make you happy and the things that make you look forward to tomorrow. For the beautiful things you do that go unnoticed, for the sincere prayers you say to the ones you love, for the compromises you make, for the risky chances you take and for the silly things you do to make people smile. Thank yourself for any moment that made you grateful to be alive and made you love yourself a little bit more.

Life as they say is not easy. But each day you try your best to make it more suitable and easy for yourselves. Don’t forget to thank yourself each day for not giving up on life.

Think About What You’re Thinking About

The Bible presents a lot of detailed instruction on what kinds of things we should think about. Philippians 4:8 alone tells us to think about things that build us up, not tear us down. For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

If you’re a believer, you probably think some Scripture-based thoughts throughout each day, but think about this: Are you mixing them with negative thoughts or just any random thoughts that come into your mind?

For most of my life, I simply thought whatever fell into my head. Much of what was in my head was either lies Satan was telling me or just plain nonsense. The devil was controlling my life because he was controlling my thoughts.

In Mark 4:24 it says, And He said to them, be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you—and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.

This scripture tells us the more time we spend thinking about the Word, the more power and ability we will have to walk in it. It also says the more we read and listen to the Word, the more revelation we will receive to understand it.

In the flesh, we are lazy and want to receive from God without any effort on our own part, but that’s not the way it works. You will only get out of the Word what you are willing to put into it.

I encourage you to make a decision to meditate on God’s Word every day because every moment you spend absorbing it, the more virtue and knowledge you will receive from God.

3 Tips for How to Build Your Confidence

Confidence.

If you’re anything like me, my confidence game can feel like a roller coaster on steroids! One day it’s there, and I’m flying high at the top of the first big hill and the next I’m dizzy from the loop-dee-loops of self-doubt and second-guessing.

Here’s the thing, I truly believe that confidence is a learned skill.

A skill?

Yup! You heard me right.

We get to choose to step into confidence each and every day actively. To show up confidently, or not.

They say mindset is 99% of the equation for your success in life and confidence should make up a significant portion of that percentage.

When you’re confident, everything can be solved. When you’re confident, nothing can knock you off your game. And, when you’re confident, you attract abundance in every area of your life.

So, how do we work on cultivating our confidence? Here are my top three tips for how to build your confidence IQ.

1. Enlist your own personal Confidence Collective

We all know that having a close group of like-minded people around us creates a sense of belonging, which leads to happiness, and in turn, boosts confidence.

Think of 3-5 key people in your life that you turn to when you need support. Are they friends, significant others, family members, mentors, coaches, co-workers?

Next, write down the names of these individuals and consider what role you want them to play in your Confidence Collective. I like giving my Collective members titles like “The Hopeful One,” “The Motivator,” “The Mentor,” or “The Coach.”

Then, you are going to reach out to each of these individuals. Let them know that you are starting your very own Confidence Collective. A group of people that you can turn to anytime you are feeling a little off your game. Let the person know what role you want them to play and tell them you will be reaching out whenever you need additional support and a boost to your confidence quotient.

Be sure to thank these individuals on a regular basis. Let them know how much their support means to you and be sure to show up for them when they need you to uplift them as well.

“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” – Jane Howard

2. Get over your confidence guilt

Feeling guilty for having a fantastic day, crushing it at work and making things happen in your personal life?

Don’t!

Give yourself permission to rock your life. All too often, we feel guilty if we do not have the same experiences as those around us.

Think about it. You go out with some friends, and you listen to them talk about how much they hate their jobs, how they wish they could be travelling abroad, and complaining about what their significant other did to make the latest blow-up happen.

Guess what? You don’t have to contribute to the negative talk.

Surprise everyone when you choose to own your confidence by speaking up proudly about how awesome things are going for you. Celebrate what is going right in your world.

Ace a project at work? Of course you did.

Did you make it to the gym three days in a row? Yah, baby!

Are you deciding to start your own business so you can be your own boss? Woohoo!

When we celebrate what is going right in our worlds, we show up with confidence and inspire others to think more positively as well.

Remember. Confidence is contagious.

3. Work and live from your zone of genius

You should live and work in a way that celebrates your strengths – your zone of genius – every single day.

Why? To shift the focus from what we can’t do to what we can do! We become aware of our capacity to make amazing things happen.

I want you to consider what you are love doing.

C’mon, don’t be shy! Make a list of at least 10-20 things you feel terrific doing. Want some suggestions?

  • I’m a great listener.
  • I know how to create fantastic spreadsheets.
  • Everyone says I am a fabulous cook.
  • I am a rockstar volunteer leader at my local food bank.

Look at your list. Do you see any themes emerge? Does your list involve helping others? Are they creative endeavours? Are you flying solo or working with a team?

Once you see the themes emerge, you can consider these areas your strengths.

Then, find ways to be in your zone of genius every day.

If you are creative, work in some creative space for yourself, even if it’s 15 minutes. If you like bringing groups of people together, plan to host a dinner party or potluck in the next couple of weeks.

I want you to emphasize your strengths. When you do that, your confidence will soar.

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” – Norman Vincent Peale

Which Would You Choose?

You can be right or you can be peaceful, but you can’t be both.

Which would you choose?

The ego wants to be right.

In a situation where someone else seems to have it wrong, and you feel (or know!) that you’re right, it’s oh so very tempting to point out their wrongness.

The ego loves that.

However, have you ever noticed that trying to show others you’re right, often comes at a cost?

By it’s very nature the act of PROVING SOMEONE WRONG or PROVING SELF RIGHT doesn’t involve much peace. It involves an energy, even if very subtle, of separation and judgment.

Now – that said, it’s quite valid to be right! There will be plenty of times in life when you are right, and someone else is technically “wrong”, but the questions to ask ourselves in those times are…

Does it really matter who is right or wrong?

Does it really make any difference if I point out how right I am?

Would I rather have peace as quickly as possible?

So in those moments when you want to stand up for yourself, or have the last word, or feel the need to counter someone else’s viewpoint (and there are plenty of opportunities for that in a world of contrasting beliefs and opinions), ask instead…

Would I rather be right or would I rather be peaceful?

Personally, most often these days I choose peace. There are very few times where it adds value to my life, to others or to this world if I were to battle to be right. So I don’t. Not because I can’t, not because the topic isn’t important. Simply because… I VALUE PEACE MORE.

What do you value?

What will you choose?

The Best Is Yet To Come

It’s another Friday and the weekend is here. This piece is for the road. Hope you like it!

I closed my eyes in what seemed like a dream, and opened them in another land. I saw trees that were perfect, the bluest sky, and many things I could not understand.

I heard sounds that appeared as great choirs, all singing with a melody of praise. I saw people arrayed in the brightest apparel that blinded of heavenly rays.

There were creatures I saw that were so different, yet all were so beautiful and kind. I searched my thoughts to see if I had seen such a sight, yet nothing like these came to my mind.

Their appearance was very awesome, and yet somehow you still had no fear. They just stared as though they were beckoning you to follow, with a love that just drew you near.

The grass was so green, with not a blade out of place, and the streets seemed like streams made of gold. Everything looked, as though it had just been created, for nothing was battered or old.

I saw no sun casting shadows about, yet the brilliance was of a shining array. I saw no darkness just magnificent colors, as if waking to a perfect day.

The families I passed all turned, waved, and smiled, with a joy that just seemed so complete. As I turned around I saw a massive throne, with others kneeling down at God’s feet.

Crowns were now being laid down before Him, the rewards of the faithful and true. One of them called me to come forward, yet I had no crown, so what could I do?

I lowered my face, looking down to the street; I had shame, guilt, and despair. Then I felt a hand take hold of mine, and He promised to walk with me there.

Tears began to fall from my eyes, yet He reached out and wiped them away. He introduced me as faithful and true; I was quiet with nothing to say.

My knees gave way, and I fell down in worship, as a crown was then placed in my hand. The shame and guilt then disappeared, and I began to, now understand.

I turned my face up to the throne; I saw Jesus He was smiling so sweet. I took that crown that He had given to me and I laid it at my Savior’s feet.

Then I stood to my feet as others had done, and then received His very best.

When I heard Jesus, say “well-done good and faithful servant, now enter my Father’s rest.”

I Don’t Have a Man! Is it Okay As a Christian Woman To Have a Sex Toy?

This is something have not done before on this platform. But had to bring in this interactive topic.

Now I get questions all the time but this recent one blew my mind! A friend of mine from a fellowship wanted to know if it’s okay for her to use sex toys to fulfill the sexual side of herself. She stated that she doesn’t want to sneak around having sex so this way she is having safe sex and not fornicating with anyone else. She said she was too ashamed to ask her Pastor and wouldn’t dare bring it up to her fellowship. Is this a sin she asked? Now I know ya face dropped so pick it up now! Let’s be real for a minute (So many of you are fake so I know that’s a lot to ask). Smile.

Do you know other women that have and use sex toys? I know your not bold enough to confess it yourself. I’ve heard of a lot of women using sex toys even those that are married and have boyfriends!! Yep…I said it. Now keep reading.

The question here is is it a sin? Have one violated the law of God in the bible? This is going to get crazy but again I told you we’re in a new year so be bold about what you want to know. I know the’re going to be so many that will read this and drive right on by. Lol. That’s kool….but you gone learn today! Now if you aint scared…..talk to me!!!!
