God’s Way Is Free!

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on One Life To Love by 33 miles

I wrote this blog over a year ago and believe that it still stands true today.

Stress: A state of mental tension and worry caused by problems in your life, work, etc.

something that causes strong feelings of worry and anxiety.

physical force or pressure.

Just A Thought….

Today we’re living in a fast pace world.

Everything is rapidly changing.

We live in a time where it’s in with the new and out with the old.

And sometimes you may feel the pressure to keep up.

And if you’re not feeling the pressure, maybe you have kids who feel the pressure and therefore you now feel pressured.

It’s all about the latest shoes, clothes, tablets, Ipads, cell phones, and whatever else floats our way.

Things are moving so fast that we don’t even get the chance to enjoy what you already have.

It’s easy to become ungrateful and stressed out about how to get our hands on the next big thing.

So, what happens when we give into those temptations?

We may pick up more hours on our jobs.

We may pick up a second or third job.

We may even decide to turn to credit cards. (Yikes!)

We become stressed out, burned out, and physically and mentally drained.

We get so caught up in the “I want the best and I want my family to have the best” that we miss out on the most important parts of life.

Spending time with God, Family, Friends and our own Company.

When was the last time you were just able to relax your mind long enough not to think about anything but what’s right in front of you?

Remember the saying that the best things in life are free?

I’m starting to realize just how true that statement really is.

Going to the park, taking a walk, watching a movie, and praying together are things you can do with your loved ones.

And it’s free! Free I tell you!

It allows you to not only get in valuable time you’ll never get back, but it also allows you to become more in tuned to what’s really important in life.

It also allows you to draw closer to God, by drawing closer to the things that are important to him, people.

Isn’t it so good to be surrendering right now?

We not only get a chance to draw closer to our creator, but we’ll also get a chance to draw closer to the things of importance because we’re drawing closer to Him.

Just A Thought….

Search God!

 

Happy Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on I Will Search by Israel Houghton

Are you looking for direction?

Do you feel lost?

Do you feel hopeless?

Do you feel like life is passing you by?

Well then, the first and only thing you need to do is stop what you’re doing, Pray, ask God for Direction and get into The Word.

That’s it! it’s just that simple. Stress and depression is not required. Having a pity party or beating yourself down first is not a prerequisite for fulling your destiny.

Trusting and taking God at His word is. It doesn’t matter where you start, because it’s all about the finish.

Be Encouraged!

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Rescue by Promise Keepers

Sometimes when we’re on our journey and taking the road less traveled, it’s easy to look around and get discouraged.

We look around to see others prospering, doing (what we perceive to be) anything they want  to do, and still living the life.

We may ask the question, am I even hearing from God? Did He call me to this place?

To answer your questions Yes and Yes!

He has knocked, you opened and now He’s here so that you can develop an intimate relationship with him.

Fear No More!!!

IMG_0431

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Total Praise by Fred Hammond

Terror, Fright, Horror, Alarm, Nervousness, Unease, and the list goes on and on.

These are all words that describe FEAR!

Fear: An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

I wrote about my experience with fear awhile back, and I’ve come to realize that fear is a journey.

Even after you decide to face it, you become overtly aware that fear has a lot tricks up its sleeve.

I’ve come to realize that fear is the silent and deadly killer to dreams and aspirations.

It’s so quiet that you’re not even aware that it has attacked or attached itself to you until it’s exposed.

The Power of Forgiveness

Happy Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Forgiven by Sanctus Real

I wrote this blog a while back and I thought it would help someone today. Be blessed.

Forgive, Forgiveness, Forgiven. Anyway you look at it, it’s not always easy to let go, give it, or receive it.

It’s something about that word that makes it not easy to always understand.

We may find ourselves giving “forgiveness advice” to someone, but then when that word reaches us and it’s time for us to utilize it, it’s not always the easiest thing to do.

We understand the concept of forgiving, but executing forgiveness is a whole other thing in and of itself.

“Embrace The Illogical.”

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Nothing Is Impossible by Planetshakers

This blessed me over a year ago and I hope this will bless you today.

Logical:

  • Characterized by or capable of clear, sound reasoning.
  • (of an action, development, decision, etc) natural or sensible given the circumstances.

From the moment we’re born we are taught to think logically.

Growing up I’m sure you’ve said or mentioned something to someone who may have sounded a little out of the norm, only to hear, “does that make any sense to you?”

Chronic illnesses, strokes, heart attacks, you name it. And this is happening as early as our thirties.

Yes food is not what it use to be, but I’m talking about something more sinister.

I’m talking about that silent killer called STRESS!

The one that’s taking out not just the unrighteous, but God’s people as well.

Water: God’s Incredible Creation

WATER BLOG

 

Let’s Talk About the Importance of Water

Water is not only used to fertilize the trees, plants and grass but it is also used to support the body by building a healthy immune system which allows the body to function at optimum levels.

Water is the main component of the human body. Approximately 75% of our body is made up of water, depending on age, body size and gender.

Drinking a sufficient amount of water regularly can be very beneficial for your health; not to mention it’s fat-free, calorie-free, and just plain ole free from the tap.

Christ Is The One Who Draws….

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on We Hear You Calling by Chris Lawson

What sets us apart as a believer of Christ from anyone else who’s not a believer?

Is it our outward appearance?

Is it the way we dress?

Is it the way we look?

The way we carry ourselves or speak?

I’ve met a lot of people who physically appeared to be what was “perceived” or “equated” to what a follower of Christ should look like, only to have them open there mouth and destroy everything that Christ is.
