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!
I’m not going to even let that bother me!
It’s quite alright that the ones you thought would be there are not. It’s quite alright the love you thought was exclusive to you is not. It’s quite alright that the job you thought would give you great gain laid you off. It’s quite alright the friends you called on turned their phones off. It’s quite alright you trump charges and stick labels that make other perceive me and mine as junk. It’s quite alright because I know someone. I know someone who sits high but looks down low. I know someone who sees all that goes on, even when the lights are off. I know someone who loves me in spite of all your lies. I know someone who cares about the tears I’ve cried. I know someone who is better than you will ever be. I know someone who took the time to know me. I know HE loves me. I know He cares. I know HE shelters me from the pain of the world and my heartache matters to Him. I know He is always for me, my true ride or die. I know God and that’s quite alright!
It doesn’t matter what they say. You didn’t originate from others anyway. God is OUR creator, HE is our source. HE is OUR Father and has the final say of course!!!
I can be upset about so much, but I’d rather not!
In fact I choose to give God the glory for it all. It may not all make sense but I know it’s all working for our good; me and my children. See, God gave them over to me to raise, teach, guide and lead but I can never forgot God initiated this. Some days I feel like they’re just mine, like I created them. I tend to think that they, just like I, have no beginning or end. God created all of us. Sure, there was a BIG BANG right after God spoke He needed some light. He is God!!
Life has thrown some curve balls but I’m a great batter. Life has even sent me through some deep valleys but I wasn’t alone and never will be. I know that God is with me, with us and that’s more than enough. I’m saying this because folk I thought would be there, wasn’t. Maybe it’s because of the labels that have been placed on us with stipulations and speculations but thank God for revelation. I realize now the doors that closed, God closed them because He knows it’s no good for us. However, the door we enter is the one God opened for us and no man can or will close it. I speak of me and my children as one because we are. I can feel their hurt and pain just as they can feel mine. I even know what’s being said without them saying a word. We’re just connected like that. So for all that have turned their back, talked their smack, lied their lies, and planned their traps, God sees you and will handle you accordingly. I realize more and more it’s not our battle to fight but our mission to stand. We must stand in belief, stand in faith, stand with patience and endure this race. God is able to do what HE said He would do. He will fulfill every promise to you. Don’t give up on God because He’ll never give up on you. HE’s able!!!
Words to live by…. What man wont do God always will!
