It is soo very hard to losse sight of what is most important. There are so many things that are competing for our attention these days. From keeping up with the latest fashions, trends, and hobbies, health concerns, children, careers, church work, maintaining our homes, cars, friendships and keeping up with American Idol eliminations. It can be a challenge to keep this all in balance and to insure that you don’t collapse at the same time. The most important thing to remember is that in all you do you must remember to keep the main thing at the top. It’s all about perspective. Our relationship with Godis of most importance, for He give light to what should and how each is to be managed in what way. Your health is definitely important and must come next. If there is no you then what. Family is really after this becuase before any career or and outside work, charity begins at home. All this is followed by our Careers, and church work. A balanced life is what we’re looking for here, and keeping it all in perspective, will cause real balance to manifest. God Bless!

You’re on the right road.

It is a tactic of the adversary to make you believe that the road you are traveling on is not the one that will lead you to your destiny. You must know and remind yourself daily that obstacles, tests and trials are apart of the journey. In order for you to reach the promise you must conquer the perils and pitfalls of the process for their purpose is for your perfection. Your perception of every problem is paramount to your prevailing. If you can change your thoughts towards these tests you can use them as stepping stones to your success. When God is involved, a promise is a promise and is sure to come to pass. You must believe and allow God to show himself and his power and Glory through you. What you need to succeed is already been planted within you and God wants to use it to bless you!

When faith runs short….!

There will come times In life in which our ability to believe inspite of all that we’ve experienced and what we are facing at the present time will be hindered. We might even feel as though there is nothing left for us to count on and no help available to rescue us from our rapidly approaching fate. These times are just right for another spiritual principle to kick in and charge us forward through the battling seas to reach the promise of the sandy peaceful beaches of life. This principle says that when I don’t understand it and can’t seem to perceive it,; when my belief in it won’t give me the strength to move towards it, I must be obedient to the voice that call s me to it and launch forth regardless of the feelings. My wings may not have been tested, but the manufacturer of such aerial dynamic objects is creator of the wind that carries them, the tree I dive from, and the body that holds them. Therefore, what shall I fear, for I am not forgotten and I will surely overcome this test to speak on it another day. So, let me say this to you strong and mighty believer of Christ, when you just can’t seem to walk by faith and not by sight, start walking towards the voice who’s calling in obedience and watch you’re your dark period get swallowed by the awesomeness of God’s Light! -Soulworshiper

Time Management Tips – Before you start any pojects

Please remember that the strength you need to do the things you do in the time you do it in with the hands you use to do it, as you plan it all out in your intelligent mind, while inhaling the oxygen it needs to keep you alive, is all compliments of the Father up above who so gracefully gives it, and who so patiently waits to hear you say I appreciate it. He’s got an endless supply of it all for you, so make sure you don’t stiff Him when it comes to using the above mentioned necessities for HIS work. You’ll be glad you did.

Note: Sowing comes just before Reaping!!! But please know that you shall reap whatever you sow!

Now go and live!

Five Keys to a Prosperous, healthier, happier Life! (T.R.U.S.T.)

What a harsh phrase to have uttered to your ears. It’s like having a ton of bricks thrown at you. No one wants to hear these words spoken to them of the very individuals they love and care for. They’d much rather be slapped in the face then to swallow this lump of truth. However we are often guilty of such an indictment unaware. Trust is an action word that is manifested by the outward show of dependency to another. We display our sense of trust or lack thereof in the way we go about our daily exercise. Don’t get it twisted; I am speaking of our total complete reliance on the providential hand of the Lord. God says in his word, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not to thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge him and He shall direct thy path.” This scripture is the instruction for a peaceful, joyful, prosperous life here on earth. It is not the absence of conflict or obstacle, but the answer to them all. God assures us that if we would only put our entire life in His hands, and allow our decisions to be made based upon His word which is rich in promises, that we would experience a life full of fulfillment and purpose. He has already laid out a plan fit for princes and princesses and we need only get on the path that has been beaten for us. Many a family have placed themselves in positions of time consuming unnecessary outside work and toil only to leave little time for building and maintaining a healthy home. Later in life it all comes back to them in unbalanced and undisciplined dividends. It’s hard to train grown children, and definitely difficult to break old habits. God’s way is the best way, and it, although most times unpopular, is the way to great success in every facet of life. Trust him with yours, and begin to reap the benefits of a richer, healthier one today! God Bless!

Running away from it

Are you running away from something that keeps reminding you of your past mistakes and failures. Are you trying to escape a history of shame and embarrasment. What is it that you are being tormented with everyday, that won’t allow you to experience lasting joy and peaceful rest. There is a time and a season for everything under the heavens. As one thing die’s another thing lives. It is the circle of life and the principle of seasons. Mourning is appropriate when there is loss, laughter is relevant when there is joy and excitement, repentance is needed in the time of tresspass & viloation, and deliverance is required where there is real bondage. Today is the time to recognize what season you are in and respond accordingly. Weeping lasts for the night, but joy and dancing will come in the morning’s light. This is not the time nor the place to retreat, but to speak to yesterday’s errors and history’s transgression and declare through repentance and sincere faith that this is the day that the Lord has made.  It is time for rejoicing and gladness. Declare it, believe it, walk in it, recieve it. God has not forgotten you!

How to Win A Race.

Take a page from a runner in a race. You spend all the time before the race preparing yourself to be successful. There is already a set and determined time to meet. You know that you have say 3 weeks to train in order to run well. You take the time to lose weight and make sure your body is in the best shape possible. Your diet is adjusted to suit your need for strength and endurance. You change your schedule in order to get proper rest and make the best use of your time. You spend all this time in preparation for something that will be over in less than an hour and  that will yield a temporary material although symbolic prize. Isn’t it ironic how we sometimes forget this same type of preparation and dedication to our health when it comes to spiritual and mental development? This life we are living in is a race also, even though it is a race with ourselves only. There are weights and hindrances that to be released and let go. There are needs for diets from people that seem to always pull from us rather than edify our lives. Our diet of bad habits in things like unhealthy relationships, unethical practices, dishonest tendencies, and unprofitable activities will cause us to become fat and full of dead and life threatening weight. Spending your time with the wrong people will cause you and me to miss out on our designed purpose and destiny. Much of what we accomplish comes out of the maintaining a level and healthy state of mind. Individuals who are not ready for change or who have accepted they present situation as final regardless of its contents cannot feed into your life for growth. There is a releasing that needs to take place and a continual growing process. Refuse and ignore the urge to stay planted in one place where there is no growth. Watch and learn the pattern of a thing or person. If it is not moving, improving, changing or growing it is time to abandon it right away. Time is limited for us all, and there is little available for foolishness. Let ‘em go and do it today. Your gifts are not tide up in the opinions and values of another unbelieving and unmotivated individual. I don’t care how long you’ve been friends or what they given to you in times past. They have reached a point of restricted growth, and cannot fathom your hopes, dreams and vision for advancement. What lies ahead for you is still laying there waiting to be picked up just as soon as you let that weight go and properly prepare to win the race!
