Take Action! God will Guide You!

My encouragement to you this week is to be great on purpose! Give your visions to God, keep praying, and GET TO WORK! You WILL stumble. It's OK. You WILL cry. It's OK. Be courageous. STOP living in your dreams and START changing your reality!
 Be great on purpose. There is no need to tip toe about all that you really want to accomplish in your life. You are an amazing person. You are a great person full of amazing potential. Amazing potential that is inside of you that all of us have a tendency to limit. We limit ourselves out of fear, self-doubt, and various other personal reasons. Take the limits off and get to work! You have a vision for yourself. You have a vision on the change that you would like to see manifested. I'm asking you and pleading with you to take it to God. Let it all out to God the vision that you have for yourself! Cry, scream, and be open with the Lord because He already knows it causes you trouble. Now it is your turn to trust Him with your vision! Trust Him to make a way for you! Pray about it daily. Some days will seem more progressive than others but that doesn't mean God isn't leading you! He's there!
Get to work! Anything that you want to see changed in your life will not just happen. If you have a vision to raise your bank account, get a new job, lose weight, or grow with God, etc will not just happen without you doing something about it! You have to act! You have to move! You have to shift some things around, all the way around at times, and get set out on this mission. You can't receive your blessings without action. You don't fall backwards into success unless you're just that lucky. And even then you have to move to fall backwards! So you need to get to work!
I want to warn you though than this is going to be a struggle. You WILL stumble. It's OK to stumble along the way. You just get back up and keep going at it. Adversity is there to form strength in us. It helps us become more resilient. God is with you too. He won't let you fail. He has never failed so you won't fail! It may not come exactly how YOU want it but expect it to come. And yes your adversity will cause you some tears. It hurts sometimes to go through these tough situations and our obstacles seem insurmountable.It's OK to cry. We all have cried once in our life from pain. That's fine. It doesn't mean you're weak. You're human. Don't get discouraged. Keep going and I promise you'll make it where you need to be. Stop chasing these dreams in our minds of how we hope our lives should be and start changing the things that you can change about your life. Have some courage. "Without dreams, there can be no courage. And without courage, there can be no action." So it's natural to have dreams for your life but why not make them real to you? You have the ability in you because you are an amazing person full of so much potential. You got this!...Be Blessed..

Make it your Mission to be Healed!

My encouragement to you is to stop focusing in on the pain and put all your energy in the healing. I know it hurts but I know your pain can be healed! Make it your mission to be healed. PRAY for direction! PRAY for empowerment! Cling on to your vision and WORK at it no matter what it costs you!

I know what it feels like to be in pain. I know what it feels like to have a feeling of despair like your situation seems unchangeable and there seems there is no way out. I know that pain and still in some areas am still suffering from that pain. But at what point do I become so tired of the pain that I do what I MUST to end this feeling? I have to end this feeling! I have to change some things and shift areas in my life to begin the process of healing. That is something we ALL have to do to begin the process of healing. We will have to shift areas in our life and prepare to become very, very uncomfortable. I know that is not a great feeling but why live in the comfort of misery? That is no way to live. We can get upset at ourselves and how our life is but look inside yourself and ask, am I so tired of it that I'm ready for change? Ask do I like the makes me feel about myself and my life? If you know the answer is no, instead of allowing yourself to become disappointed in yourself, commit to healing this pain. when you are healed from pains, it adds another aspect of freedom and peace to your life. Freedom from that hurt, guilt, and misery. Peace from that uneasiness and sadness in your life. But you HAVE TO BE PROACTIVE. You will not get the most out of your life sitting on the sideline watching your pain beat you down. Make it a mission to be healed! A mission! It is not a mission impossible either!
PRAY! PRAY! PRAY! Pray for the direction to go because when you truly resolve your mind to change the pain, you need direction. Ask God to direct your paths. God has a way already prepared! The way he has may make you very uncomfortable but it is all for your betterment! When you learn to stand strong in the midst of a storm, not being blown in every direction, you can drive forward. The storm may slow you down but don't let it stop you for a minute. You may have a setback but you keep going forward. Keep praying. keep talking to the Lord. I promise you, that he planned for this and He will get you through! Without a doubt! Pray for empowerment! Pray that you get the strength you need! You will have it. God has sustained you. Now it is time to get up and push forward!
Cling on to your vision. If your goal is to be free in this amount of time or just making steps to your healing, yo hold on to that vision! Hold on and don't let go! This has to be at the top of your priority list! This can't just fit in somewhere in the goals for your life. this has to be at the top. Is it going to cost you some time, some more pain, and energy. But what will happen in the end is so worth it! To walk around with confidence, joy, and a new song on your mouth will be such a rewarding feeling!..Be Blessed...

Live with Vision, Walk with God..

Happy New Year. My encouragement to you is to LIVE this New Year with vision and purpose! Set goals and don't stop going for them. Place God first getting there and follow Him! He will never fail you! Don't quit because God won't quit on anything you take to Him in prayer!!
Proverbs 3:5-6: 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6acknowledge Him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight. Acknowledge Him in ALL YOUR WAYS. Not just some but all your ways! This is the New Year and a lot of us are going to make a lot of resolutions to change our lives for the better. We are going to think of ways that we really want to grow in some form or fashion. The thing I encourage you to do is to LIVE this new year with vision and purpose. Think by the end of 2012, you want to see this situation change or to be at a plateau that you have set for yourself. Now I want you to live with purpose. DEVOTE your time and energy to make this a reality for yourself. we are going to have to sweat hard to make some of our dreams into a reality and this time is no different. Go out and make your dreams a reality. Stop sitting around waiting for things to happen. More than likely it's waiting on you to do something. Set your goals and don't stop going for them no matter what is happening in your life. Don't quit at all. It is not worth it to quit on your dreams when you probably aren't as far away as you would think. Now the first and last thing I want you to do is to put God first. Place God first! God will make a way for you. Cry out to God to make your dreams a reality. Ask God to make your heart's desire come into fruition! Be direct. No need to beast around the bush! Be direct with the Lord. If you don't know what to do or how it's going to happen ask god to make a way! God is able to do just what He said He will do! Do not place the same limitations on God that we have a tendency to place on ourselves. Remember, if we are calling God to make something happen we are already acknowledging that He is the only one able to do this because we know we can't. The strength that we need to bear our burdens, the answers to questions we don't know how they'll be answered, etc. I have never seen the righteous forsaken and YOU WILL NOT BE THE FIRST!! I REPEAT: YOU WILL NOT BE THE FIRST. God will not quit on anything that you take to Him in prayer so you had better not stop yourself! God is a good and faithful God. He will make it happen! You live with purpose like everyday was meant to happen! You live with purpose that you believe today will be the change in your life that you want to see. Will you encounter some days where you won't feel as inspired knowing you've endured for so long? I guarantee you will. But Saint, don't give in. I am asking you to hold on just a little while longer and watch the Lord work with you. When God shows up, He is going to blow your mind with all the He is going to do!...Be Blessed...
