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

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!

Practical wisdom, for practical lives,practical words, to practical people, from a practical guy!

Show us your face…….please! ;)

                   Masks do nothing but hide what’s really behind them and give a false sense of who you really are to other people. You can place any number of masks upon your face and even if we aren’t truly convinced of your new identity, you will still be covering up who and what it is that is really lying beneath. People need and want to know you for who you are. Your face is a lot more beautiful than you think.

                 Masks would have been handed out at birth if there was a need to cover up your face all the time. The act of hiding behind our insecurities, talents, fears and past hurts is robbing ourselves and the people around us from experiencing true friendships and meeting exciting people. The masks prevent us from speaking clearly our true thoughts because there is seldom a cut out for the mouth in it. That same mask causes us to see dimly through the holes provided in the place of the eyes. The little tiny slots cut out for them give us a limited view and make reality seem so narrow and tunneled. These members of our body are two important factors in relationship building and enjoying life in general.

                  Take that stuff off please! We want you to show us your face. We want the real you. Whatever masks you’re wearing is preventing us from hearing, seeing, and touching the you that is in you. Your knowledge, your experiences, your gifts, your emotions, your heart, and your soul are too great for a mask. Damaged people need to be fixed, hurt individuals should be healed, crying eyes need to be dried, and hungry souls need to be fed. Remove the mask and receive the gift of freedom and new life. You are beautiful. Let us see it!
