“Spending time with God is the key to our strength and success in all areas of life. Be sure that you never try to work God into your schedule, but always work your schedule around Him.”
"If you’ll dare to take your mind off your troubles, get your mind off your own needs and, instead, seek to be a blessing to other people, God will do more for you than you could even
ask or think."
“Trust in Him Start your day by turning on your GPS through prayer. You’ll find God’s guidance, protection, and strength, which will help you trust Him and experience His presence all throughout the day!”
“I hope you have a dream or a vision in your heart for something greater than what you have now. Ephesians 3:20 tells us that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all that we can hope or ask or think. If we are not thinking, hoping, or asking for anything, we are cheating ourselves.”
“Are you living up to your potential? God made you with potential - potential for greatness! If you do what you can do, and trust Him to do what you can't, you will grow into the person He gave you the potential to be!”
“When a person is going through a hard time, his mind wants to give up. Satan knows that if he can defeat us in our mind, he can defeat us in our experience. That’s why it is so important that we not lose heart, grow weary and faint.”
“I always say believe for a bunch, and even if you only get half of it you are better off than believing for a little and getting all of it.”
“If you look at your circumstances you will put off doing what God is telling you to do. It can seem like the worst time to do whatever God says to do. BUT there is an anointing on "now" if God has told you to act.”
“Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, we will never lose our value in God’s eyes.”
“God plants dreams in people's hearts. But many people do not continue all the way to the end in order to follow Him to the fulfillment of that dream. Many get started and quit get started and quit get started and quit. They do not continue because their broken heart overwhelms their hope. They do not have any inner strength to carry them through to the end. Jesus will bind up your wounds and heal your bruises. His Word is the medicine for your soul.”
“If you can believe the God who is perfect loves you then you can believe that you are worth loving.”
“Encourage everyone you meet with a smile or compliment. Make them feel better when you leave their presence and they will always be glad to see you coming.”
“I believe confidence is all about being positive concerning what you can do -- and not worrying over what you can't do. A confident person is open to learning, because she knows that her confidence allows her to walk through life's doorways, eager to discover what waits on the other side. She knows that every new unknown is a chance to learn more about herself and
unleash her abilities.”
“God knows the mess we’re in when He calls us. His light shines greater through “cracked pots” than it does through those who have it all together.”
“Don’t waste another day of your life grieving over something that you cannot do anything about. Let God give you a new beginning. Your mistakes are not enough to stop God if you don’t let them.”
“We must meditate on what God has done in our life instead of what we are still waiting on Him to do.”
“God doesn’t tell you to do hard things so He can stand back and laugh and watch you struggle. He tells you to do things the things that He knows are gonna work out to your good in the end.”
“Happiness is not a feeling, it is a choice. To be happy, one must choose to be happy, not respond to a circumstance that now controls your happiness.”
“you have to realize that you don't have someone else's life and your never going to. You better start loving the one you got. Embrass the life you have and stop wishing that you could be someone else. Just stop all that and start saying "God here I am. Do what you want to do with me".”
“Is there any real purpose in being alive if all we are going to do is get up every day and live only for ourselves?
Live your life to help others. Give & live selflessly.”
“Do yourself a favor and forgive anyone that has anything against you. Do it as an act of faith and trust God to change and heal your emotions. Pray for your enemies and never say another unkind thing about them. It is the only way you can move past the pain and begin to heal.”
“You can be pitiful, or you can be powerful, but you can't be both”
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!
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.
Be still…God is in control. When nothing makes sense in life, as it sometimes can, He is still God and He is still in control. Rest in the fact that your worries, fears, anxieties, depressions…everything that concerns you are in the hands of God. You have to believe He is in control, that means there is no need to be stressed out or worried. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. Stop stressing and stop worrying. God has already worked it out. The only way God can show us He is in control is to put us in situations we can’t control. God’s timing is perfect.
I’ve had to evict some thoughts hundreds of times. Just know there is no storm God won’t carry you through. No bridge God won’t help you cross. No battle God won’t help you win. No heartache God won’t help you let go of. He is so much bigger than anything you will face today. Leave everything in His hands and embrace this day confidently knowing that He will take care of you. Even though you don’t feel it, God is working things out for you. Have faith and be thankful. Where faith and hope grows miracles blossom.
The Devil is busy. Today, don’t let the devil steal your joy. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the Devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against Him, and be strong in your faith. You have to make up in your heart and mind daily you will not give him room to work. What God has in store for you is greater than what the enemy stole from you. Do not let him steal your joy.
The devil is alive and well. If he isn’t working on you, trust and believe he is in your neighborhood. You can be sure you have a major blessing coming when the devil is fighting you the hardest. He wouldn’t be attacking you if you didn’t have something valuable inside of you. Thieves don’t break into empty houses. He is threatened by your purpose. He targets your mind with lies and deceit to make you ignorant of God’s will. Satan tries in every way to limit your prayers because he knows your prayers will limit him. Don’t let him put a question mark where God has already put an exclamation point and a period.
If you’re going through hell, keep going. With God’s guidance you will make it through. James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.” The Devil had a plot but God has a plan. Wake up daily and serve notice to the Devil…today is not your day, tomorrow isn’t looking good and I’ve already booked my eternity with God. I refuse to let you steal my joy. The next time the Devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future.
Today is going to be an amazing day, speak it into existence as though it were so. Where you are right now in life’s journey is a divine appointment. God has placed you here for a reason, remember that and He is working everything out. Trust God and believe in good things to come. If God shuts a door stop banging on it. If a door doesn’t open, it’s not your door. We always want to be in control of everything and sometimes we need to sit down somewhere. Yes, have several seats and relax. Be careful about rushing God’s timing. You never know who or what He is protecting you from. Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
W.A.I.T., Watch God work in His timing and ways. Ask God about His purposes. Invite God to work in your heart. Trust God to fulfill His plans. Waiting on God’s timing doesn’t mean you are doing nothing, it means you are trusting His will. Stop worrying! When was the last time God failed you? Name the last time He was too late? Has He ever left you alone? The answer is NEVER! Your Heavenly Father has everything under control. He won’t fail you now, or tomorrow, or next week, or in the years to come. Our faith may be tested so that we may trust His faithfulness. With God there is always a way.
If you have to force it, leave it. If it doesn’t open it’s not your door. Some doors that God doesn’t open for you is nothing more than divine protection. Don’t just pray that God will open doors, pray that He will close doors that need to be closed in your life. Remember, that God doesn’t close one door without getting ready to open another with bigger and greater things. Make it a priority to make God a priority in your life. God knows where you’re going and what you need when you get there, just put your faith and trust in Him. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. I trust in you and I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!
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!
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.
Today you have already received a blessing, you’re here to see another day. I just want you to know that whatever your circumstance is be still and know God has the final say. He is working in your life, right now, in ways you cannot begin to understand. Everything that the enemy has stolen God is going to restore: your joy, your peace, your health and your dreams. John 16:33 says, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world.” Nothing in this world can stop God’s plan for your life. When you don’t see a way, God can make a way. When it looks like it’s over God will send you into overtime. He has the final say…let go and let God.
You say I can’t figure it out, God says I will direct your path. You say, it’s impossible, God says all things are possible. You say I’m not smart enough, God says I will give you wisdom. You say I’m afraid, God says I have not given you fear. You say, I feel alone, God says I will never leave nor forsake you. I know you have said these things, so have I. Let’s always remember what God says in His word. You may have been wrecked but not totaled, God has the last say. You are not in control but you are deeply loved by the one who is.
A marvelous and magnificent Monday to you all! You are blessed more than you know. Everyday choose happiness. One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day. It’s time for some spring cleaning in your life. Ask yourself are you really happy? Happiness is a choice…. you have to choose it daily. Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned , earned, worn, consumed or bought. Until you have a close personal relationship with God, nothing will fulfill you and happiness is only temporary. When we put Him first, every other single thing will fall into place. Happiness is God’s peace in your heart. Happiness is a spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, humility and gratitude.
The only one that can truly satisfy the human heart is the one who created it. The most powerful and purest form of love is found in a relationship with God. There is nothing in the law of God that will rob you of happiness; it only denies you of that costing you sorrow. Prayer for today: Dear Most Gracious Heavenly Father, We come at this moment as humble as we know how, thanking you for your grace and mercy. Lord, I want a closer relationship with you. If there is anything or anyone in my life that does not have my best interest at heart Lord, please remove them from my life. I know Father, without you first in my life I will always feel a void. With you first Lord, I will never be last. I thank you for your patience with me and loving me when I didn’t even love myself. Help me to find comfort in knowing that you will never leave or forsake me. I love you Lord. Amen.
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.
