Impossible, I think not!

Greetings to all of you on this beautiful Thursday morning.  I trust that God has smiled on you this morning with the breath of life; giving you all that you need to not only be an overcomer but a conqueror of all the obstacles before you.

Do not be discouraged by what is before you. The God we serve is GREAT. He is MIGHTY and He can do the IMPOSSIBLE.  He is the Living GOD.  With Him in our corner, we can do the impossible. Trust in Him, believe His word, seek Him and He will show you things you could never dream.

As you go through life, don’t focus on your problems, don’t focus on how big your challenges seem.  Instead, choose to focus on how amazing, wonderful and powerful our God is and believe that our problems are not too great for him. Faith in Jesus is ALL we need. Don’t give up on Him because He won’t give up on you.

Remember this,

To win we must first overcome.

To overcome we must learn to persevere.

To persevere we need Jesus Christ.

Because with Jesus we CAN do ALL things.

 

Have a great day. 🙂

Hope in a Hopeless Situation

What is hopelessness?

Hopelessness is that feeling deep down on the inside that tells you:

  • Don’t bother trying anymore!
  • What’s the point anyway!
  • It’s over!
  • You’re all alone!
  • No one cares!
  • Give up!
  • You’re done!

Hopelessness looks at the situations we’ve failed to get ourselves out of and convinces us it is over.  My friends, when we go through life without the knowledge of Jesus Christ, who He is, what He represents and how much He loves us, it is easy to get caught up in feelings of hopelessness.

The truth is, even in what may seem like a hopeless situation with Jesus Christ on our side, there is always the possibility of a favourable outcome.  With Jesus, there is always hope, because there is:

  • No situation too difficult for Him. 
  • No problem too big for Him. 
  • No such thing as impossible for Jesus Christ.

No matter how hopeless your situation may appear today, I want you to know that Jesus wants to help.  He wants to deliver you out of it.   He wants to show up in your life and do great things. Through Jesus, there is deliverance for all those who believe and trust in Him.

The facts:

  1. No matter where we are in our lives right now, Jesus Christ will meet us right where we are to take us where we’re meant to be.
  2. He loves us even though some of us don’t know Him.  His love for us is so great that He came to this world, to die for our sins and rose again so that we can have life and not death. This is true love.
  3. We have a choice to make, life or death?  Once we choose Jesus, we will not only have life but we will have it more abundantly.
  4. We must ask God to forgive our sins and surrender who we were. Choosing to walk in the truth of who we have become as we are now one with Him.

In closing, I leave you with this, hopelessness is a symptom of a deficiency in Jesus Christ.  The only way to cure hopelessness is through reading the word of God daily; meditating in it and applying it to our lives. Believing in it more than what is before your everyday senses of sight, hearing and touch.

Don’t walk around anymore embracing the lie that hopelessness teaches us instead let us choose to embrace and hold on tightly to : truth, hope and love, that is, Jesus Christ.

SPEAK The Change You Want To See

Pleasant Wednesday morning to each of you. 🙂  Today,  I want to talk about something I have been practising lately and the changes it has resulted in not only in my life but that of my family memebers as well.

SPEAK the CHANGE, you want to see around you.

We often hear people refer to “the power of the tongue” and that how we use our words can affect not only our lives positively or negatively but also the lives of others.  Recently, I have been testing this belief and I can say that based on my experience, this is true.

What did I do differently?

I spoke positivity into every situation and on every family member including myself for what I wanted to see happen in their lives. For example: Over my eldest son, I said “You are an obedient and respectful child.  You are going to do exceeding well in your exams. You are intelligent.  You are full of wisdom and understanding.  You are a child of God and you will prosper in ALL that you do. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. In Jesus Name. Amen.”

Every day I said it in my quite time and directly to his face.  I spoke good things into his future despite what his current situation or behaviour would have been and God is doing what only He can do in his life.  Thank you Jesus, for the power of prayer and the power of my words.  

It does not matter what you see before you once you believe with all of your heart that God can fix the things that need fixing and trust Him to do it.  He will!  

So effective immediately, start declaring and decreeing in your mind, to your fears, for your family members lives, your body, your finances, your workplace and your spirit, the future and victory you want and need to see manifested.

Let’s use our words to bless others.  Let our words stir change within ourselves and others for betterment.  Let us encourage and inspire others to be greater than they were yesterday as we speak the same for ourselves also. 🙂

My prayer:

Heavenly Father, let all who read this take from it what You need them to receive so they can equip themselves, take action and speak into existence the healing, restoration, transformation and deliverance from all that is affecting them and their families today.  As we use our faith like never before to give life to the words of our mouths we put our trust in You that victory is coming. In Jesus Name. Amen.

I declare and decree that today we are better than we were yesterday and tomorrow we will be better than we are today.  Today is going to be great! Believe it and receive it. 🙂

STOP PUSHING AND START PULLING

Many times we go through life constantly trying to fix, repair, arrange and change everything and everyone around us.  We’re always PUSHING.  However, when life PUSHES us we naturally PUSH back. The end result is not always in our favour.

The thing is, the majority of us struggle in this area because we are always trying within our own strength, understanding and wisdom to PUSH and fix, change or manipulate the world around us without once considering improving the world within ourselves first.

As a result, we 9 out of 10 times end up feeling frustrated, depressed, angry, stressed out and unhappy. We will always fail when we try to go after or try to sustain happiness outside of ourselves. So, how do we begin the transformation process needed within ourselves?

I have initiated certain steps in my own life that I use today and WILL use tomorrow and the next day in my journey towards a better me.   Let’s take a look.

Step One – STOP PUSHING and START PULLING

Acknowledge and recognise that we cannot in our own strength fix ourselves.  We NEED a power greater than ourselves to repair, heal and fix those areas within us that we are unable to fix. That power is called Jesus Christ.  When we stop pushing God away and keeping Him out of our daily lives and start pulling Him closer – something amazing happens. 😉

Step Two – SEEK FORGIVENESS

Genuinely confess and ask for God for His forgiveness for ALL the wrong we have done with all of our heart.  I believe that when we do this, this opens up the door for God to work miracles and do other wonderful works in our lives.  This process helps lighten the load and weight that so many of us carry with us emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Step Three – PRAY AND READ THE BIBLE DAILY

Actively seek God daily through prayer and reading the bible (His word). When we practice this we are building and strengthening our relationship with God as we gain understanding and knowledge of Him.  This takes our lives to a whole other level.  Our eyes, ears and hearts are suddenly open. I would like to refer to this feeling as the “level up or power up through Jesus Christ”.

Step Four – BE HUNGRY AND THIRSTY FOR GOD AND SEEK HIM DAILY

Talk to God every day because our relationship with Him should not be a Sunday thing or one day a week when we go to church. It should be a conscious daily walk with Him.   Why? The challenges that we faced before accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour would not just disappear overnight.  However, it is through His guidance and grace would we not only see our situations differently but get His divine intervention to bring us through them every single time.  🙂

Step Five – LET GO, TRUST AND BELIEVE

We can become successful in our areas of ‘discomfort’ if we learn to LET GO of the worry and fear that so often accompanies them.  However, in order for us to do that we must TRUST God’s plan for us and BELIEVE that He would not leave us to suffer or fail.

We can’t simply talk the talk as true believers in Jesus Christ but we must walk the walk

It is our faith and trust in God that opens up the Heavens and allows the favour and blessings of God to flow in our lives.  This is where our success, power and ability to succeed in our circumstances comes from.  We must never forget that.

In my own journey to become the woman God needs me to be I pray that He continues to transform my life, my heart, my mind and spirit as He takes me to places and new levels I’ve never even dreamed of. Opening doors, creating opportunities and washing my life inside and out with His favour, mercy and grace as I obey His word and place my trust in Him. In Jesus name. Amen.

Don’t take my word for it. Pray and talk to God for yourself and as you humble yourself before Him ask for his guidance in your affairs and thank Him for being apart of your life.  Stop doing things your way, stop depending on anyone else but God for your happiness, deliverance, wisdom, strength, courage, healing, understanding, favour and blessing.  Make this investment in YOU today.

If you have read through this post in its entirety then I believe God has already awoken something deep inside of you but only YOU can let Him in.  If you are already a believer then there may have been something here He needed you to see.  Talk to God today and ask Him to help you BE all He needs you to be.

Have a blessed day.

 

Take A Step Back

Would you believe I just wrote a whole post on this and I pressed the wrong key during formatting and everything vanished. 🙁  Why me Lord!  I thought to myself as I tried feverishly to recover my work.  Very upsetting as efforts proved futile!

I was so angry at myself for not making sure my work was saving as I went along.  I was so caught up in what I was doing that I neglected to pay attention.  I felt like giving up and then I remember what this post was all about and decided to try again. 🙂

Roda over at Growing Self actually inspired me to write this after reading her post called A Journey.

No matter what the flood waters of life throw at you – don’t give up!  Stop looking at your problem through those tired eyes and stressed brain.  Try these tips.

  1. Take a step back to get a better view.
  2. Clear your mind by listening to some music or doing something fun to relax.
  3. Get creative.
  4. Get resourceful.
  5. Don’t listen to the negativity of others.  They are still caught up in their own mess and couldn’t help you even if they wanted to.
  6. Most important of all, don’t allow the frustration of it all to prevent YOU from unearthing a better outcome for YOURSELF.
  7. Change your position.  You’ll be surprised just how different or simple a problem can appear based on where you stand and how you choose to look at it.
  8. Monitor your attitude.  It’s hard to find the solution or breakthrough you’re looking for if your attitude is constantly negative.  Believe that you CAN and WILL overcome the challenge and work towards it.
  9. Believe in yourself.

 

Have a good night and thanks for stopping by. 🙂

 

I Rise

Pixabay.com

I rise in spite of your efforts to hold me down

I rise because I am destined to

I rise because I refuse to stand still

I rise because failure is not the pill I chose to swallow

I rise even without your support and encouragement

I rise because I’m focused on the future

I rise because positivity is my food source

I rise because I believe I CAN.

 

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
