When you are stressed out, you’ve taken on responsibilities of things you don’t have the power to carry. Jesus is not surprised by your stress, anxiety, and exhaustion. He instead invites you to walk with Him so He can give you the peace you are seeking.
We have a choice when it comes to the way we see things. Some people are like thermometers; always alerting us when things aren’t right. But others are more like thermostats. These people determine the temperature in the room. Their words, their thoughts and their actions set the atmosphere. Are you a thermostat or are you a thermometer? Light is often used as a metaphor for teachings that bring wisdom and understanding into the hearts of individuals. Jesus is the light of God within us.
Outnumbered Yet Undefeated.
This has been a desert season; yet, I’ve learned that God often speaks clearly in the valley. Every time I neglect the simple yet profound truths of who God is, I choose to forget that God is on the throne, He is in control and that there are far greater things ahead than those that I leave behind.
You Get What You Go For
How you start your day will determine how it is going to be. I wonder how many of us place the same amount of effort and excitement to enriching our purpose and mapping out our future than we do to predicting the outcome of college basketball.
Too often, we miss out on what God wants to do in us and through us because we listen to the voice of the Enemy telling us, you’ll never ever ________________. Most of the barriers in front of us are rooted in two identity issues: the way in which others perceive us and the way in which we see ourselves. If you never know how to be loved, you will never know how to give love. We are commanded to prepare for the move of God before he makes the first move.
Have you discovered what you are passionate about? What is something that sets your heart on fire and, that you want to make a priority in this new year? Don’t wait until next week or next month to begin making an action plan; Start NOW! Our dreams are not independent from God, but instead exist because of God.
Faith and Freedom
Your life is the origin of new roads and new horizons and is the mouth of God’s love, God’s life, and God’s provision. Every day is a new opportunity for you to stand in awe and be amazed of what the Lord is doing in our nation. God sometimes may be silent but He is never absent.
We need to listen to the what God is saying (through His word and through prayer) before we run to the media to get the latest news story.
Fashioned for Greatness
How many people are limited by their own thinking, their own insecurities, or even the voices they have allowed others to speak over them? MANY.
Has it come to you that, maybe your answer may be limiting the movement of God in your life.
Attached to understanding one’s life purpose is knowing who our creator is.
Risen, Empowered and Confident
Don’t let yesterday’s pain keep you from the bright future the Lord has designed for you. Your happiness does not rely on your circumstances changing, but on you changing how you see your circumstances.
Be Confident in knowing who God is and allow Him to move in your life!
Fear originates itself in self-centeredness.
Confidence and Boldness is found when we lose ourselves in Christ.
Purpose in the Hands of an Artisan
Your creativity reflects the DNA of your creator and as an artisan, your life tells a great story. The masterpiece of our lives is composed of what God is doing in us, not just what we are doing for others. It shifts our eyes to see what God is accomplishing through us, not just what we are accomplishing on our own. Influencers lead from the inside out so that their identity shapes their leadership.
