Consistency Wins the Race

24 May

Consistency Wins the Race!

Consistency Wins the Race

Consistency Wins the Race! Have you ever just had a week of being busy, but still it seems like nothing is getting accomplished?  Face it, life happens!  Sometimes our great plans of what we were going to do for the week, year, or even our lives, simply change. The key is to be willing to roll with the changes!  Be consistent in taking the small steps regularly. Yep, that has been my life recently, but yet when I look back I can see that I’ve accomplished much more than I thought I had.   I’ve actually made some huge strides toward some goals that I’ve been trying to meet this year by being consistent in doing the small things.

It may sound wonderful to go through life without any bumps in the road, but I believe it would also be very boring!  I have found that when the bumps of life happen, I can use them to my advantage. They can show me a true picture of what I am made of. Sometimes they detour me to another pathway that was good for me.    I admit there have been some huge bumps at times, so huge in fact; I really never thought that I would make it over them. However, God’s grace is always sufficient for me!

2 Corinthians 9:8  (KJV) And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

This post is not to brag on how much I’ve gotten done, but rather I want to encourage you to see how much you are getting accomplished! Take time to realize that God is co-laboring with you by making all grace about toward you!  I want to encourage you… don’t give up on your goals or dreams, but press in even when it seems that nothing you do is accomplishing much.  Do you remember the story of the Tortoise and the Hare? It was the Tortoise that won the race, not the Hare.  Why?  It wasn’t the speed, but rather, a consistency that caused the race to be won.  If you haven’t quit, then you are still in the race, the prize is up ahead!  Keep contending! Life is a marathon, not a sprint! Can you see that you too have made great strides? I cheer you on my friend! Again, Consistency Wins the Race!

Our Process Reveal Our Purpose!

28 Sep

Our Processes Reveal Our Purpose!

As I was thinking about so many of my friends and family that are going through much heartache and pain, I found myself meditating on how God purposely uses what is going on in our lives to help encourage others.

This statement comes from my simple understanding of faith! Knowing that God is faithful to us and will use everything we walk through to bring us into our purpose.  He uses all of our processes to help us.  His main objective is to help us realize the big why.  Why was I created and what is my purpose?  I believe again it is quite simple, so that He can pour His love through us  by speaking  His words, being His hands and His feet, and letting His heart be extended to others to let them know He has a hope and a future, an expected end for them to do them good and not evil!

Regardless of all of the religious reasoning behind why bad things happen to good people, this I know to be true! God is a good God!  He is a Father with a Father heart.  What father in the natural unless he had mental issues would inflict pain on their child to try to teach them something!  Would you put sickness, disease or other horrible things on your children to try to teach them?  As ridiculous as that sounds, why do people think of God in that way?

This is the tricky part of our process! God uses the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Everything we go through, God will use for our good, but that doesn’t mean that everything we go through is good!  Did you get that?  Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father but that doesn’t mean that bad things will not come to us or touch our lives.  Bad things happen to good people and in contrast, good things happen to bad people all the time, right?

James 1:17 (KJV) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

The Bible also states the following:

Matthew 5:45 (KJV) That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

What does that mean? Simply stated Christians are not immune to trouble!  Many think that because we are Christian that nothing bad will or should ever touch our lives, but there is nothing in the scripture that supports that statement. If we live in this world, and are of the human race, than we will experience trouble and pain, but we have Emanuel-God with us!

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

So my point in writing to you today, especially if you sometimes feel lost in your pain, or let’s be honest maybe you feel like God has abandoned you in your most desperate hour of need, is to   assure you and to encourage you that you are not alone in your pain.  The Lord knows exactly where you are and knows how to turn all things to help you and to comfort you!  He also knows how to bring you to a place of total victory where you will be able to use the things you’ve walked through to help others walk through as well! This is His true father heart for you!

 Isaiah 61:1-11 (KJV)61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.

7 For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

8 For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.

10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations

Thank you for taking your time out to read today! I hope that if you are the one today that is in pain and need to be comforted that you will reach out to this loving Father through Jesus who suffered all pain so that He could relate to yours. If you do not have a relationship with the Lord then it is so easy to become His child and receive his salvation (complete wholeness in every area of your life)!

Romans 10:9-10 (KJV) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

That’s it, simply accept Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior over everything in your life (yes that means all of your pain and heartache, over all the good, the bad, and the ugly) and believe in your heart that God our Father raised him from the dead for you! Now tell someone (confess) that you accepted what He did for you! Viola, you have become a New child of God!

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

I would love to hear from you and what the Lord has done in your life! Please feel free to leave comments and let me know how the Lord has helped you!

Dreams Do Come True

Dreams Do Come True!

new-york-137

Do you know what it is like when you have dreamed of doing things for as long as you could remember and you actually get to do them?  Well, you are talking to the girl that has just had a few lifelong dreams fulfilled!  I’m totally blown away because I’ve gotten to experience a bunch of “first” in last six weeks of my life that I’ve dreamed about practically my whole life. From becoming a #1 Bestselling Author with my latest book 5 Steps to Birthing Your Dreams A Spiritual Midwife’s Manual, to flying on an airplane for the first time, to my most recent lifelong dream being fulfilled which was a whirlwind trip to New York, New York!

My girlfriends and I had planned this trip to New York City for a few months but it still didn’t seem real to me until the day we went to the airport.  It was amazing how God truly showed us divine favor as all of the pieces fell into place in a way that was easily affordable for all of us to be able to go!  One of our friends had actually lived in Brooklyn, New York and would graciously serve as our tour guide!

Just travelling to the airport, knowing I was going to board my first airplane caused me to feel a whole range of emotions which all included joy, excitement and happiness! I truly wasn’t scared, as I had dreamed of this my whole life it seemed. Now you have to know that I am a country girl, okay?  Can you imagine what it is like for a little country girl who lives in Georgia, originally from Kentucky, to step into the airport in Atlanta, Georgia and see the scheduling board that says New York, New York?  I could feel a tear stinging my eyes as I realized that I was actually going to be fulfilling lifelong dreams! As we boarded our flight, my friends let me have the window seat! When we were soaring through the air and I looked out onto the vast beauty of billowing clouds and what lie below me, I pinched myself to make for sure that I wasn’t asleep and dreaming.  Nope, it was all awesomely real!

We took a section of New York by storm!  Taxi’s, Pedi cabs, Subways, Buses, and Boats and of course walking the streets and avenues got us around the Manhattan District.  We soaked up and savored the experiences! Vender hotdogs, Authentic Greek, Chinese, Italian, and Mexican cuisine, Broadway Theater and my favorite Central Park and a Twilight tour of the beautiful city! I will not tell of all of our adventures today, however, I’ve actually been working on another book that I’ve been writing for several years about a Kentucky girl who moves to New York! I am so grateful that I now have real experiences to paint a true picture of what this Kentucky/Georgia girl had experienced and can finally fill the pages of a new book!

As always thank you for reading and connecting with me!  I always want to encourage you never, never, give up on your dreams! God will give you the desires of your heart!  I am living proof that dreams can and do come true!     Blessings my friends, until next time!
