Do Not Despise These Small Beginnings

14 May

Do Not Despise These Small Beginnings

small beginnings

Do Not Despise these Small Beginnings.  I love this Scripture in Zechariah because it shows me just how relatable and personal the Lord is.  He knows all of our beginning from the end.  He helps in all of the between places, but this Scripture shows His heart in that He rejoices to see us begin! Why?

Every success story starts with a beginning.  We all had to start from someplace and move forward from those tiny little steps! My thoughts go back to when my baby boys begin to try to walk.  They would slowly let go of the furniture they were using to balance themselves,  then teeter on their little tippy toes to make their tiniest first baby step!  My husband and I as their parents,  would praise them and rejoice with arms opened wide to encourage them to walk to us.  They stumbled and fell, and would get back up until they walked more and more.  They soon gained confidence and independence until they were practically at a run.

Progression and Success occur when we are consistently making the choice to put one foot in front of the other and keep moving.  We can be confident as we walk because we know the Lord is cheering us on with arms opened wide just like my husband and I had done with our boys.  The Lord rejoices to see us begin because He knows what He has waiting for us. So my friends in the Words of  Zachariah 4:10 (NLT) “Do Not Despise these Small Beginnings for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin.” I also had to throw the following Scripture in as well, again to show that the Father’s heart concerning you and me. Psalm 37:23 (KJV)  The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

Boomers, Where are Your Booming Voices?

11 May

Boomers, Where are Your Booming Voices?

Where are your booming voices

Boomers Where are your Booming Voices? This blog post is to encourage my fellow Baby Boomers.  You were born for such a time as this, you’ve not come this far, to only come this far.   I declare that you are living long, and living strong upon the earth and that you will not be taken out early, but you will live out every bit of God’s purpose for putting you upon the earth.  I break off any lies the enemy may be pronouncing over you and I declare You are not barren, but you will continue to birth and produce fruit in your latter years!  God has called you to Birth Holy Things for His Kingdom in Jesus’ name! You will roar out your testimony and overcome in Jesus’ name!

Revelation 12:11 {KJV) And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death

Just a few facts I wanted to share that I found: The Phrase “Baby Boomers” refers to a group of persons who were born between 1944 and 1964.  We are currently between the ages of 55-75.  According to statistics, there are approximately 76 million of us in the United States.   So what does that mean to me?  The statistics to me only brings excitement because I think of all of the things we’ve been through from the past  5 ½ to 7 ½ decades, all of the knowledge and wisdom we’ve gained, and our potential to teach our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, all others throughout our generations. We have much to teach the coming generations!

Don’t get me wrong, that is not to say that the generations after us doesn’t have much that we must learn as well, but many of the things we have experienced, learned, and acquired are sadly being lost and the following generations will not benefit from our lessons and blessings unless we are willing to be the “Booming Voices”, much like that of John the Baptist in the wilderness!

The root word of Boomers is Boom and I wanted to give a summary of the word Boom’s definition.

The word Boom is a noun that refers to a long arm or bar that is used to attach a sail for a boat, or as an extended arm that is used to contain.  It also can refer to a long extended pipe that is used to transfer from one vessel to another such as fuel from one plane to another.

Used as a plural word it is very interesting to me and what caused me to write this article/blog post.

Booms or Boomed is a loud, deep, resonant sound.   The word’s synonyms are reverberation, resonance, thunder, roaring, echoing, pounding, rumble, bellow, blast.

 

So I ask again Boomers, where is your Booming voice?

Where are your long arms being extended? Have you lost hope of catching a new wind in your sails so as to reach out to your following generations and take them on a journey? Will you share with them what is in your hearts and spirit and give them your life experiences and stories as a precious gift.  Where is your loud, deep, resonant sound or voice to share your life’s experiences and lessons? Where is your reverberation, your resonance, your thunder, your roaring, your echoing, your pounding, your rumble, your bellow, your blast that needs to be heard and felt throughout this generation and to the ones to come?

 

Has your Booming voice been hushed, stilled, or weakened because you thought no one would listen?  I say to you, it’s not so much about being loud, as it is about being heard.  Shout your story from the rooftop, shout your testimony and your life’s accomplishments until someone listens.  Yes, shout out even your disappointments, mistakes and trials, because as the bar that carries fuel to one plane to another, you are a vessel being poured out someone who needs what you have. You are a vessel created from God the Potter’s own hands to be emptied out for this generation and to all those to come!

 

It ain’t over yet Baby Boomer, you’ve got too much inside of you! So I ask again, Boomers, Where are your Booming Voices?

 

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. ̶ C.S. Lewis

It’s Time to Stop Living the Hamster Life!

9 May

Want to Make a Change? It’s Time to Stop Living the Hamster Life!

Authorartistmomof2

It’s Time to Stop Living the Hamster Life!

hamster-in-a-wheel

It’s Time to Stop Living the Hamster Life! Do you live your life as though you are a hamster? You know just running around in circles and never feeling as if you get anything accomplished or make any progress.  The bad thing about a hamster’s life is that he or she doesn’t know all their running around in that hamster wheel is not getting them anywhere.  Many people live oblivious to that fact as well?  They keep doing the same old thing but yet expecting different results.

Psalm 37:23 (KJV) 23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

When the Israelites kept going around and around in the wilderness, it was because they refused to listen to direction.  God will give you plain direction if you will choose not to ignore Him…

Let your heart be your smart app!

9 May

Let your heart be your smart app! In the day that we live in with our lives so plugged into technology, I am really surprised that someone hasn’t created some kind of smart app that beeps or alarms to let us know “hey, you’ve gone around that same mountain a million times, don’t you think it’s time to change direction?”

Smart Heart App!

Let your heart be your smart app!

Let your heart be your smart app! Well I know I am just being silly, however, do you know that we do have a built-in alarm? It’s called our conscience.  It’s the part of us that puts a huge check in our spirit every time we feel uncomfortable or are unhappy.  When the check comes we should pay attention to it and investigate the reason behind it. We should immediately question, why am I feeling this or that way over a situation?  Unfortunately, the alarms are going off all the time, but we’ve ignored them so long that they just seem like “white noise” or background noise.  Because we choose not to hear them, we continue to go in circles without our life’s purpose being fulfilled. Our lives then become stagnant and frankly pretty miserable.

Psalm 37:23 (KJV) 23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

John 10:27 (KJV) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:I hope that this post is a LOUD alarm for you today!  Time to get off the wheel my friend and do something great and fulfilling!

The Lord has given us not only a conscience to help us, but He has given us the Holy Spirit that is our comforter, teacher and guide through life.  Many people choose to ignore Him as well, but He is trying to order their steps so that they will delight on their way! There is no better way to live than to let the Lord direct our steps and for us to hear his voice.  He wants to lead us to a wonderful life today, right now!  Let your heart be your smart app!

Don’t Hide Them Away in a Closet or Box!

30 Apr

Don’t Hide Them Away in a Closet or Box!

Don't Hide Them Away In a Closet or Box

There are many experts talking about side hustles etc. to make extra income which honestly I participate in.  However, the gigs that I seek to do and excites me the most are the ones that will add skill to what I feel are already my gifts and talents!

I am passionate about Art and Books.  I love creating art pieces and have developed enough skill to instruct others to do artwork of their own. I am also passionate about writing and publishing my own books, but  I also help others to write and publish their books as well!  What is my point?  Find that side hustle, but let it be like adding wood to an already burning fire or passion!

Oh, and by the way, once you create whatever your gifts and talents let you create…don’t hide them away in a closet or box, but rather share them and give glory to the One who has given you all things!

Your Destiny is Greater than Your Last Disaster!

24 Apr

Your Destiny is Greater than Your Last Disaster!

Your Destiny is Greater than your last Disaster!

Your Destiny is Greater than Your Last Disaster!  Do you ever feel as though you messed things up so bad that you’ll never be able to fulfill your destiny?  Let me let you in on a little secret, you’re not that powerful!  

My thoughts go back to when my babies begin to walk.  Did they stumble around and fall?  Absolutely! However, their ability to learn from their mistakes even at that age was amazing.  How much more, can you and I pick ourselves up and walk on?    There is a simple solution, but just because it is simple, doesn’t mean it is always easy!

  • Use the lesson as your blessing.
  • Learn from your mistake, and start over again.  Repent (change your mind and turn around) before God if you’ve done it out of disobedience. Simply ask Him to forgive you and set your feet back on the right path!
  • Realize that every morning is filled with new mercies, so don’t rehearse your mistake over and over, but start fresh with a new day!
  • As you start fresh with a new day, also start fresh with a new plan. Get into the Word of God and get you some knowledge and understanding.  Then trust God to give you the wisdom to put a new plan together and walk it out!
  • Simply go after your destiny another way, and realize that God is the Way Maker!

God is that loving Father, who like me when my babies fell, runs to pick us up.  However, like any parent, I had to gradually let my babies learn to pick themselves up and our Father will do the same with us.   I hope that this encourages you to remember Your Destiny is Greater than Your Last Disaster!
