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!

Keeping Traditions and Memories Alive!

20 Apr

Keeping Traditions and Memories Alive!
IMG_3027 (5)

I had worked all week doing laundry and bedding to pack into our camper. We loaded our little camper with all the necessities that we thought we would need for an entire week and off we went to one of our favorite camping places in North Georgia, where we met up with my nephew, his wife (my niece) , and two small children.
My husband and our boys are lovers of fishing, so I knew what the week would hold for them and my nephew. The guys fished practically every night, and on two separate occasions went on excursions to fish for trout and finally hit gold the last day. Rainbow trout was what was for supper the last night along with smoked sausage and sauerkraut for those of us who are not necessarily fish lovers! As the guys finally found their little pot of gold, so did my niece and I.
My niece and I on the other hand always go scouting for  different kind of gold nuggets. We love to visit unique little towns full of antiques and thrift stores. This year we found a wonderful little southern town that played out like a fairy tale. The people were very genuine and exceptionally friendly. They asked us if we had visited their natural springs, and suggested that we take water containers to the springs and get all the pure spring water we would like. No charge of course as it was a free resource that the little town was thrilled to have and was built upon! We ate at a little hole in the wall restaurant which immediately became a favorite. This little town so left an impression on us that we returned with our families with water containers in hand, and of course revisited the little shops and yes you guessed it, even the little hole in the wall restaurant that had real southern foods, for example: a bowl of pinto beans, cornbread and collards, plus a drink for a whopping $4.99. This was a town that I will frequent as my family only lives about an hour and a half away from it. Amazing how little nuggets of gold are right under your nose, but if you do not look for them, you probably will not find them.
After dinner, each night we would all gather around to play card games such as Canasta, Skipbo, Uno, and a fast favorite Monopoly Deal. As we took turns gathering in each of our campers, it gave us a great sense of satisfaction as we know that we are creating wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. We hope that we are instilling a love for simplicity and tradition into our children and possibly into their children’s children as this is what our parents instilled in us. The most wonderful memories were of my parents taking us on trips such as these and simply spending time with us. Oh how I wish they were here to see how their grandchildren and great grandchildren love the family traditions that they began with us way back when we were just children.
So what is my point of telling you all about my vacation or why that I thought you would possibly be interested? Simply to encourage you to create memories with your children, grandchildren, and possibly even great-grandchildren that will shape their future family vacations. Create times that will spark beautiful and happy memories in them as they too sit around a camp fire, or gather around a picnic table, or possibly like my family get in a late night of card playing and tell wonderful stories that keep my parents with us and their memories alive!

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!

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!
