The ‘Right’ Thing

Knowing the right thing and doing the right thing is not always an automatic occurrence. 

I recognize that because of our own weaknesses, fears, doubts and sometimes even our upbringing that the ‘right’ thing may not always be clear and can be quite scary at times.

Thankfully, we have a choice to live life not by our own understanding but through someone greater than us. God has equipped us with His word that guides and directs us in the way we should go.

Heavenly Father thank you for this beautiful Friday morning that You have blessed us with. Lord my prayer for every person reading this message is that we would be gifted with Your strength, wisdom, understanding and courage to do the right thing in every situation we find ourselves in. When we seek You Lord may we always find clarity and guidance. In Jesus name, amen!

Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. 🙂

Music Reflection Mondays: Trust God

Thank you Lord for this new day and help us to make the most of it. Show us that you are always with us as we continue to build and strengthen our relationship with you.  May every single person that read and visit this blog be blessed.

Let us use this Music Reflection Monday to experience and enjoy how light our burdens can become if we just trust in God to see us through. There are so many songs out there that it is impossible for me to list them all in this post but may the Holy Spirit guide us to what we need in our spirit and lives.  Here are some songs I felt compelled to share today.  Feel free to share some of your favourites below.

May 2018 be the breakthrough year we’ve been praying for – for our health, for our families, for our finances, for our businesses, for our healing spiritually, mentally and physically.

So stop running, stop denying, stop doing things your way and failing, stop worrying, stop fighting and let go and give God permission to improve and repair every aspect of your life.  I have and I’m not going back to the way things used to be. We don’t have to do it alone.  We have help and He is waiting for us to ask Him.

Believe with me and receive these blessings as we trust and praise God daily for them in advance and He will deliver us. 🙂

Awakening and Growth (originally posted 23.09.2017)

You used your words to break me down

And that turned my smile upside down

Blinded by my love for you

I forgot I had to love myself too

 

I allowed my ‘true’ self to be locked away

Not believing deep down I had some say

Or that one day I would find my way

My way back to my true self,

That special me I hid on a shelf

 

Now that my blood no longer runs cold

And a new purpose fills my soul

Not even you could keep me back in this world

As I turn my lessons into ink

I look to the future and can’t help but think

 

Thanks to you I have created a new path

Thanks to you I have made a fresh start

Thanks to you I have seen the light

And I’m happy to report it is beautiful and bright.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by.   Have a wonderful weekend!

 

Surprise!

Surprise – YOU ARE  amazing!

Filled with purpose but for what reason?

Don’t stress about it

You’ll find out in due season

 

Surprise – YOU ARE talented and gifted!

And to think you let others view of you

Cloud the mirror you would often look through

 

Surprise – YOU ARE beautiful inside and out!

So watch the words that come out of your mouth

Black or white, fat or thin

We’re uniquely made in the skin we’re in

 

Surprise – YOU ARE not believing a single word!

Still caught up on all the negative you’ve been told

I don’t know who you are

But even though you may not be a superstar

I’m sure in life you’ve come far

Never be ashamed of who you are

 

Surprise – YOU get stronger with every blow!

Those obstacles are sent to help us grow

YOU ARE MUCH STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW

Just thought I’ll share that before I go 🙂

 

Thanks for stopping by. Make today a great one!

 

 

Shine Bright

Shine bright no matter what they say

Because to be happy, there’s no other way

Fireflies do it from within

The moon and the stars even bring the light in

……………………………………………………………………………….

Shine bright even when no one is watching

Because once you believe in YOU

It does not matter what they do

The light within will always shine through

…………………………………………………………………………………

Shine bright even when things around you are not going right

In times such as these you have to shine your brightest light

Challenges will come but don’t let them get you down

You have what it takes to overcome

Feed the light within you and it will come

………………………………………………………………………………………

Shine bright with your smile

Shine bright with your thoughts

Shine bright with your actions

Choose to shine especially when you don’t feel like

Because that is when your mind, body and spirit really need it

Make today a great one! Thanks for stopping by.  🙂

 

Where is your focus?

Focus.

Focus is a powerful word.  If channeled inwardly in a positive way we can do amazing things and can become the amazing people we were meant to be.

If re-directed toward others especially in a negative way – it can consume you.  Likewise, if you take that energy and direct it internally in a negative way by being highly critical and negative about yourself it can consume you as well.

Focus requires time, energy, effort, dedication and determination.

Use that mental power and asset to your advantage.  Use it to strengthen your core values or create new ones (if needed).  Don’t believe or give ear to the negative stuff people say.

  • You have the power to make things right!
  • You have what it takes to improve your situation!
  • The only story that is going to keep you back is NOT what people say about you but what you believe about YOURSELF!

I don’t have a crystal ball and no I don’t know what the future holds.  However, what I do know is what I want and don’t want for myself.  If you can say the same thing – then all you need to do is STAY FOCUSED and go after what you want.

Believe in yourself. We CAN do anything if we just put our minds to it.

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
