Put Your Life in Drive Key #2 Start the Car

Put Your Life in Drive Key #2 Start the Car

Put Your Life in Drive! (1)

Yay, I am excited that last week’s webinar actually happened.  In case you are curious as to why I said that last Thursday we were awakened by an oak tree falling on our house!  This needless to say is not the way you want to start off your morning, but Praise the Lord we were all safe!  However, we weren’t for sure about how the roof had faired.

When daylight finally dawned, we realized how fortunate we were to all be safe.  We had a tree removal company to come to inspect and tell us what we needed.  Again, God protected us because the gentleman knew exactly what to do and how to do it, the only delay was that he couldn’t take the tree off that morning.  He had to wait until the evening.  At twenty minutes to seven, the chainsaws were stopped, the tree was off of the house and yay, you guessed it!  The Facebook Live Series 7 Keys to Put Your Live in Drive was on! It is my hope that you will be encouraged by the live video as I really had to go through something to pull it off!

I would love to hear from you if you are being encouraged by this new series, and personally, invite you to join me for the next Facebook Live Event

Put Your Life in Drive Key #3 Idle next Thursday, May 25, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. Est.

Why won’t you just lie down in surrender?

2 May

FREE EBOOK Why won’t you just lie down in surrender?

Sometimes do you wish you could just lie down?  You know, on those days, weeks, months or even years when everything within you seems like you are pressing and pushing yourself to make the effort.  Those times make you want to say, “I surrender!”  But why don’t you or why don’t I simply surrender and let life do what it is going to do to us?  Because there is something on the inside that says, “You’ve got this!  You are coming out of this event, this trial, this challenge, bolder and better, not bitter!”

The last entire year of my life has been a huge challenge.  It is a challenge that I took on myself to try to simply be stretched and to go to the next level of what I felt the Lord wants for me. He doesn’t just want us to survive, but to thrive in life! I’ve enrolled in online courses, I’ve been stuck to this computer like glue,  participating in online webinars, youtube videos, digging up resources etc…Everything that I could do to press forward into what I know that the Lord has called me into.  I am determined to thrive, and not just survive, and help others to thrive as well!

How about you?  The pressing that you’ve been doing, is it you, just trying to survive, or is it so that you can thrive?  I think the reason you do not simply surrender, again, is because you know that deep down, you are meant for so much more than just surviving and getting by in life.  God has placed big dreams and a big future in you.  But you may be asking, how do I live it?

Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

May I suggest that the hustle of life begins to shift when your thoughts toward what you are doing shifts.  Yes, you may not like where you are right now in life, but you need to realize that this is simply a life lesson, a place where you’re passing through.  It came to pass, not to stay.   The choice is up to you as to whether you will linger where you are not happy, or pass the test and move on to the next challenge.  You must realize that life doesn’t always play fair, but that staying in a place, being upset at what life has thrown you, is not changing your circumstances.  Let’s be honest, maybe your circumstances may never change, but how you think of them, and how you grow in them and even let them change you can change!

Again, my friend, I know that the Lord has put it in you to make it!  To pass the test and move on to thriving, not merely surviving!

Attitude Adjustments, Do you React or Respond?

30 Mar

Attitude Adjustments, Do you React or Respond?

Glass half empty or full

I am a firm believer that the kind of life we live depends solely on our attitude.  Please don’t roll those eyes…Yes, this is another blog post talking about your attitudes, but also mine.   Many people are “the glass is half empty” types of people, whereas I am one of the “the glass is half full” types.  Unfortunately, I tend to grate on the last nerve of those half empty types, but really the only difference between me and them is my attitude, right?

I think the differences between the two types of people I mentioned above, is mainly our attitudes toward life.  Our attitude has to do with how we do life in general.  For instance, when unexpected things hit our lives, do we respond to them, or to we react?  I want to describe the difference between a person who lives in response to life, and those who may live in reaction to life.   Please note this is not to say one type is better than the other…my point in it all is simply attitude!   We are never one hundred percent a responder or a reactor.  I think if you’ve read this article to this point, then you will agree with me that we all need attitude adjustments at times so that we can go forward and live life better!

If you are a responder (half full type) to life, when negative things happen, you tend to be able to step back a little and look at the overall situation.  In looking at the whole picture, you then rationalize, “Hey, this thing happened and it wasn’t good, but at least, I am still here and can use by learning from it!” The responders are generally thankful and grateful for what the experience has taught them and can generally move on rather quickly.

The people, who react to life (half empty type) when negative things happen, tend to believe that they should have been able to control or prevent them.  However, when they realize that the negative things came and there wasn’t anything they could do about it, most of the time they take it as a huge loss and as a personal failure. Because of their attitude toward whatever the negative thing was, they tend to become stuck in that place.  Instead of being thankful for what the experience could possibly teach them they become bitter. Some people can never move on.

Nobody has a positive or negative attitude all the time.   However, it is generally our attitudes that determine how long it takes us to go forward in life!

A Blast from the Past

old man winter

In my neck of the woods which is right outside of Atlanta, Georgia our winter season has been practically null and void.  We’ve had warm days practically all winter with just a few exceptions which amounted to a week or two.  So we are lulled into thinking the wonderful days of early Spring were only going to get warmer and more beautiful as the jonquils, crocus, wild cherry trees and Bradford pears were all bursting with vibrant color and blooms.  The azaleas were hanging with full bodied, fragrant blooms as well, when right in the mist of our early spring utopia celebration we have the arrival of an unwanted visitor, a Blast from the Past whose name is Old Man Winter! Isn’t this just how life goes?

Life is like a weather pattern!  Some days are warm and sunny with nothing but blue skies and happiness.  In those times you are more productive and you finally feel as if you are making steps forward in progress toward your Dream Future,  But……Yes a big old But comes creeping in. Suddenly you’re Old Man Winter arrives out of the dark shadows to lie to you and tell you that you can’t go any further.

Your Old Man Winter may have another name such as Old Rejections, Old Defeating Mindsets, Old Defeating Habits or Old Regrets but Regardless of the names of your dark days or demons, they are a blast from the past that tries to hinder or delay you right now and in the future!

When the blast from your past arrives how do you handle it?  Do you relive all of the mistakes in your past, all of the habits that have kept you going around the mountain like the Israelites in the wilderness?   Do you then beat yourself up and say, “Well, evidently I wasn’t meant to have anything better.   I wish I would have done things differently, but this is how I’ve always been and this is how I have always handled things.”

Aren’t you tired of going around and around in circles?  Do you want to seriously go forward?  Do you not recognize the demons of your past that only serve to hinder, delay, lie to you and ultimately blind you to  what God has really placed inside of you to produce which is a wonderful life and future?

Jeremiah 29:11 (King James Version) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

One of the first steps to walk out of the past is to recognize that you have an expected end created by God himself just for you! That you are not alone and that God loves you! You do not live in the past!   You are priceless to Him! You are valuable and He thought you were so worth it that Jesus laid down His life for you so that you could have a new bright future! I hope that you will accept what He has done for you.  If you do, I promise you, your life and future will change. Once you accept Jesus into your heart, you will have the courage and the authority to finally put your past behind you!

You have the authority and the courage to finally deal with the enemies of the past.  God’s word will break off old mindsets, habits, defeating attitudes and lies that have hindered you.    Declare the scripture about your future because God’s word does not return void or idle to Him

Tell the enemies of your past, “I absolutely am not going around that mountain again! I declare, “Jeremiah 29:11 (King James Version) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”  I fully intend to live out this expected end or my life, now go from me and never come back in Jesus’ name!”

Finally life is about seasons, but you must know what season you are in.  Realize that even in the winter seasons you are indeed making progress, but that it is much more difficult to see because all of the processes of a winter season are usually buried under ground or in our case in our (heart).  However, do you not know how hard the seeds of all you planted toward your future are working to burst forth for a brighter future for you?  It takes the winter season in our lives for the seeds to become strong and hearty.  You can’t see the process, but it’s happening, like our early signs of Spring!  We get to experience the warmth of early Spring days to keep us encouraged of what is coming!  So I encourage you, just because you do not see or maybe do not know all of the processes a seed takes to shoot forth and produce what is in it, doesn’t render that seed null and void.  All the good things you’ve sowed toward your future will arrive when you realize that you are worth it and that God Himself has it for you!
I hope this article serves as an early spring day and has warmed up your day and heart!  Great things are yours!  Be blessed!

He opens doors no man can shut!

2 Mar

He opens doors no man can shut!

door

Have you found yourself in a position of needing to change, but you have become comfortable and honestly do not want to move.  I find that the reason of being comfortable is usually the number one reason most people do not change, however, it is really not being comfortable, it is more a spirit of fear.  As we face unfamiliarity, rather than decide to go forward and face fears, we choose rather to set back in what is familiar.   Most may not be happy where they are currently in life, but rather than face what is next, they dig their heels in like a stubborn Kentucky mule.

Oops, yes I said it!  You may have been able to keep your position based on your stubbornness, which is all fine and good if you are trying to please yourself, but let’s get honest.  Are we put on this planet to just please ourselves?  Have you found joy in pleasing yourself?

When I think of stubbornness I think about what the word of God says about it:

1 Samuel 15:22 (KJV)And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

I Samuel 15:23 (KJV)  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

In this scripture the Lord had promotion in mind for Saul, but stubbornness and rebellion prevented Saul from being King.  So I ask you, How is your stubbornness and rebellion preventing you from going forward?  May I suggest that if you repent, trust the Lord with your whole heart and life, fear will no longer have a place.  The Lord has only good things for you! He has an open door for you to walk through!

Revelation 3:8 (KJV) I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Moving Forward or Staying Stuck?

3 Feb

Moving Forward or Staying Stuck?

stuck-in-the-mud

Are you moving forward or are you stuck?  For many I’ve talked with, their answer to me has been that they are stuck.  For whatever reason, life hit them out of nowhere it seems and they have become immobile.

I do not pretend to know the answer to everybody’s woes, but the only advice I try to help with is this:  If you keep doing the same thing over and over again, you are going to get the same results!

When someone is stuck, it requires a change of some kind to move.  For instance I live in Georgia where we have Georgia red clay.  This clay when wet is so slick that if you accidently get into it, unless someone comes and pushes or pulls you out, you can forget about getting unstuck!   If you try to get out yourself, you will spin and spin. The clay causes you to bury down deeper and even more stuck.  This is how many live their lives.  They just spin their tires hoping to get out of the place or situation that they are in, when in reality the spinning is just causing them to bury down deeper and become even more stuck.  You may be using a lot of energy but you’re not getting anywhere.

What is the solution you may ask?

My number one suggestion that I would offer to you is that you must change your mind!  Again you cannot think things are going to change if you don’t! I know for many this is why you are stuck.  You have a difficult time making decisions.  However, if you choose not to make a decision, really you have!  You’ve decided to stay stuck!

Even a baby knows that when it takes its first step that it has to turn loose of whatever it thinks was keeping it balanced.  May I suggest that in order for you to take a first step forward that you too will have to let go of whatever you think is propping you up.  When the baby takes its first steps it is wobbly and may even topple over a few times, but babies do not give up.  They just climb right back up and try again!  Again, may I suggest that if you’ve tried to move and fell down, that you get right back up, get your balance, and try again.  It may take you a few times, but I know that you can do it!

5 Steps to Birthing Your Dream A Spiritual Midwife’s Manual

 

A Whirl Wind!

8 Sep

A Whirl Wind!

Well it’s been awhile since I’ve just sit down to do a regular blog post!  After the Whirl Wind month of August where I finished up my Video Blogging of my Romance/Suspense Novel If Oak Trees Could Talk, I also became a  #1 Amazon Bestselling Author of my new book 5 Steps to Birthing Your Dreams A Spiritual Midwife’s Manual.  Honestly, I’ve been on a pretty amazing high as I am still riding on Top 100 Amazon New Releases

I remember the first blog that I ever posted which was six years ago now!  Wow, the old saying “time flies when you’re having fun” is so true.  I was so unsure if I really had anything to say, but once I began writing, it would flow out of me each week, sometimes two or even three post a week! No one could possibly know that I spent many hours journaling and dreaming about a life that I hoped to someday have. So why am I looking back?   I am looking back because even though I am enjoying a level of success at this moment with my writing, I remember that I spent many years when I wasn’t for sure if anyone was even interested in what I had to say through my writings.  I would write with no reaction whatsoever.  However, do you know what I learned, when everyone and everything was quiet, I learned that I have passion, tenacity and just plain old determination. I also learned that as I spent time with the Lord, that He would fill my heart with such hope of a great future!  As I continued to write, I found that I had plenty to say, and eventually people began to listen and be encouraged!

My goal in all of these years has not changed, in all my writings, whether it be blogs, newsletters, or books, my goal is to always encourage those who read to never, never give up on your dreams!  It may be taking longer than you thought it would, but be encouraged.  God is a redeemer of all time.  Just know that nothing is a waste of time or energy.  If you tried something and it failed, learn from it and move on and try it a different way!  Just don’t quit! Don’t wallow in self-pity because you feel like a failure, nope, get up and try again!  One day you will look back and realize Wow, Look how far I’ve really come!
