The people in your life aren’t the source of your problems, the forces of darkness are.
My life is a reflection of my consciousness. If I am feeling unhappy with my circumstances, I don’t linger in disappointment or discouragement like I used to, but rather I rejoice in the discovery that I can change my life by shifting my consciousness. If I don’t like the film that is playing, I can simply change the reel!
I use to blame others for what was happening in my life and neglected to believe what God said. He tells us that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but darkness of authority in high places. That passage took awhile for me to truly comprehend because truthfully I didn’t want to. It was impossible for me to see outside of the tangible person that stood in front of me trying to hurt me, either with words, actions or deeds. This set up a consciousness of “the world is out to get me” and with that thought I was against the world.
To shift my consciousness, God made me examine my beliefs. Do I believe I am deserving of love? Do I believe I am one with God? He forced me to repeat this practice until my consciousness shifted and I began to see the dawn of a new day. I am deserving of everything God has for me and no man can take what He has to offer.
I pray that God gives you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know Him and shift your consciousness and see the dawn of a new day!
This lifted my spirit and just in time!
A message from Tyler Perry
Do you know how many times I tried to be successful at doing plays before it finally worked? From 1992 until 1998, every show I put on flopped. No one showed up, and I lost all my money. I wanted to give up. I thought I had failed, but the truth is, I never failed. Each and every time the show didn’t work, I learned something new. I learned what not to do and what I could do better. You have to understand that what you may perceive to be a failure… may very well be an opportunity to learn, grow, get better, and prepare for the next level. If you find the lessons in what you perceive to be failures, then you won’t ever fail at anything. Everything I learned during the “learning” years (that’s what I call them now) has helped me in the “harvest” years (that’s what I’m living in now).
Don’t be hard on yourself. You haven’t failed. Find the lesson so you can use it when you get to your harvest. It’s coming, just believe. I don’t know why I felt the need to send this today, but I know it will reach whom it’s supposed to.
It’s finished, its paid for, it’s already done!
The things I’ve been going through, the decisions I’ve made, some parts of my past that I refused to let go has taken its toll on me. I find myself sitting still just thinking of everything and wishing desperately I could call on my parents for direction and guidance. Believe me, I’ve tried talking to my Father God but HE is so silent lately. He is not giving me anything to work with but allowing the enemy to throw everything my way. Anyone else feel this way? I’ve noticed that the more I seek God the more trouble come my way. But I’m learning I can’t call God my deliverer if there’s nothing to be delivered from. I can’t say He’s my provider if I have all I need and want. I can’t call God my healer if there’s no sickness. I can’t call God my way maker if things aren’t in my way to block me. I can’t call God my source if everyone else can get me out of a jam. I can’t call God my everything if I’ve never been down to nothing.
I will stay in the fire. I will go through the storm. I will believe in spite of all the disbelief around me.
I just needed to declare that for me. I will continue to walk in authority believing, trusting, knowing it’s already done!
I truly have the victory but it’s my greatest defeat!!!
Let me explain this statement. I know I am a child of the Most High God but I sometimes play by the enemies rules. I know the fight is being brought to me through principalities in high places but I still go after flesh and blood. I act as if the people, God’s people are out targeting me, like I’m being personally attacked. I have no respect or patience once I feel threatened in any form. I take it upon myself to start fighting. I knew I was wrong so I sat still and waited.
God showed me all my challengers. HE showed me the same enemy over and over again but with different faces, different potentials, different power punches and techniques. Then HE showed me HIS way of defending me and defeating the enemy little by little, however HIS way allowed HIM to get touched. With each punch GOD laughed but I felt every blow and it wasn’t funny. After so many combinations and upper cuts I tagged myself into the ring and moved God to the side. I wanted to protect HIM from harm but we all know as soon as I got in the ring it went crazy. I saw every punch, scheme and shenanigans coming my way but I was powerless in my defense. I looked over for God to help me, tag Himself in but HE didn’t. I stretched out my hand but HE never tagged it. Finally I cried out “Help me please. I can’t do this by myself.” God looked pass my eyes and spoke directly to my spirit.
“We’re going to lose this round but we are still in the fight. It’s a lot of rounds to this. Don’t get discouraged or feel condemned. I knew you were going to protect ME but I’M GOD. I admire your courage but your obedience wins the battles. I admire your strength and swiftness but your endurance wins the race. Let go and relax in ME. I created, shaped, formed and molded you into MY image. I breathe MY very breath in you to produce life with great abundance. I know everything there is to know about you. Yes, you’re one of a kind but you are not GOD. I Am that I Am. The battle is not yours, I got this!”
Again I’ve fouled things up trying to help God or play GOD. Now I sit in my consequences thinking I really didn’t have to do that!
Thank God there’s no condemnation only faith, forgiveness and forwardness.
Good day my friends, followers and family. I just wanted to send you a little something that lifts your spirit and strengthen your life.
(For the Work Place)
The Lord is my real boss, and I shall not want.
He gives me peace when chaos is all around me.
He gently reminds me to pray and do all things without
murmuring and complaining.
He reminds me that he is my source and not my job.
He restores my sanity everyday and guides my decisions
that I might honor him in all that I do.
Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mails,system crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, gossiping co-workers, discriminating supervisors and an aging body that doesn’t cooperate every morning, I still will not stop–for He is with me! His presence, His peace, and His power will see me through.
He raises me up, even when they fail to promote me.
He claims me as His own, even when the company threatens to let me go. His Faithfulness and love is better than any bonus check. His retirement plan beats every 401k there is! When it’s all said and done, I’ll be working for Him a whole lot longer and for that,
I BLESS HIS NAME!!!!!!
You should be as free as you can with your imagination!
Pay close attention to what the atmosphere of the day brings you. It may make you aware of different feelings but this is an opportunity to live out your dreams. Try seeing yourself as a painter and draw your desires on paper or canvas. It’s a blank canvas so you can be as expressive and animated as you like. No rush, no pressure, treat it like you treat romance; gently and lovingly. Be smart, share only your dream with those you trust. Sometimes it’s better to be silent than to tell others what you feel because it will only hurt you when you know they can hear you but can’t understand you. Many times what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a special heart that listens.
Be smart, creative and full of mission. After all, you may have a masterpiece on hand.
Don’t get to happy about where you are now because it can very well change tomorrow.
When you’re a person of transition you tend to know you’re going somewhere but not sure where that somewhere is. You walk around aimlessly but bold in your steps knowing their ordered by God. You talk of the future but have a hard time letting go of the past. One day you’re full of faith and the next full of fear. Remember transition means passage from one form, state, style, or place to another. You’re never on the same road or going through the same thing. That’s why when one thing gets fixed another thing blows up and you find yourself asking “what now, how much more, when will this end?”. Maybe it’s just me but for the past 4 years I’ve been in transition. That’s the best way to sum things up. In this phase of life I find myself accumulating ‘haters’ and dropping toxic relationships. Nothing is quite the same. Everything has purpose and meaning but without knowledge it appears to be just another problem. Here’s the great news in all of this—- you’re going through, you’re not stuck in any situation, you’re passing through the valley and headed to the mountain top. You need those haters so that God can prepare the table in the presence of your enemies. All things are changing daily but working together for good.
Allow this transition, this change, this time of turbulence to happen; for in the end you’re esteemed and crowned as winner!
