VENTING

In order to create a new reality, you have to empty yourself of all or most of  the troubles that consume your life. There are many ways to do this one of which is to talk to a friend who is trustworthy. Another is to write down all that seems to occupy your mind, leaving  it on paper rather than allowing it to play over and over again like an old tape recorder.  Learn to forgive and forget past hurts and start moving forward. Finding a way to deal with that which steals your joy is crucial to living a life of fulfillment and joy.

We all have moments in time where life gets the best of us and we just want to shout it out and vent in order to release our frustrations. I have been there many times dealing with different circumstances, however, sometimes you have to let it out, turn it over to the lord and keep going. Don’t allow anything or anyone to keep you from living God’s intention for your life. Getting angry and expressing your vexation is not a sin, providing you release it an appropriate manner. How you choose to deal with what troubles and boggles your mind will ultimately define how God views your behavior. When bad things happen, it may be an opportunity for growth. Stay the course, pause, learn to ask yourself what is God teaching me through this experience? Keep moving forward choosing to walk in wisdom and love.

Nuggets of Truth: “Be angry and do not sin” do not let the sun go down on your wrath

Ephesians 4:26

CHASING YOUR DREAMS

DSC02021

Life is an illusion, a made up reality of what you think is possible. We all live in our own little world which was manifested based on our emotions, and life preferences. Some are victims of their circumstance and environment. What if you began to change the way you think about what’s actually possible? We have the power and Continue reading “CHASING YOUR DREAMS”

Life’s Purpose

planet earth2

We are all unique, like our planet earth, none of us are exactly alike.

We were created that way on purpose

By God’s infinite wisdom,

Earth was designed for man and man for earth

Everything we need to sustain life is here,

 We were made in his image, to serve rather than to be served,

Using our gifts and talents, given by our creator,

To live a meaningful existence

 Not defined by earthly passions and desires

Which seeks to corrupt and discourage

 A life which touches the heart and soul

With God as one’s foundation.

QUIET MOMENTS

alone time

I love spending time alone and having quiet moments all to myself very early in the morning. My days are usually filled with so many other distractions vying for my attention and sometimes it’s very difficult to be alone, to think clearly of new possibilities. Everyday we live in a world that is constantly pulling us in different directions. It is important to make each day count, finding time for solitude and silence to refresh and renew ones spirit.

Jesus sought solitude many times in prayer during his ministry due to the demands of his life. His Foundation was his heavenly father which renewed his strength to continue on his journey. This is a lesson we all can learn from, as the pressures of our daily life seems to increase rather than decrease. Time spent alone with God in prayer will give you strength and open doors to a new reality.

WANTS VS NEEDS

fashionHave you ever had a strong desire to purchase an item that you felt you couldn’t live without? Well, for many of us that is a regular occurrence. I remember a time when I saw a particular coat in a store window on my travel to work everyday. It was a fashion style that was  popular among the ladies and of course I wanted it so badly that common sense went right out the window. The price tag was pretty steep but who cares. I made it my purpose in life to buy this coat of many colors and as I made my way into the store one day, money in hand, I finally made my purchase. I was beaming with joy and in that moment, I felt like a million bucks. Sadly, in all the years I had this beautiful coat, I wore it once as I strutted and styled down the streets of New York. It  was a temporary fix, a moment of pleasure and like most things in our life, out of sight, out of mind. Years later, while sorting through my closets, I stumbled upon that beautiful expensive coat and decided to donate it to charity.

Our Footsteps

nQZcA7PRTyuduZPSZQ88_wanderlust

Guide our footsteps,

O Lord

Help us to walk in your truth

Hearing but also understanding

Walking in obedience

To your word

As we slip,

Help us not falter

On the rocky terrain of life

Teach us to walk on a straight and narrow path

Walking in the boundaries

You have set for our lives

Thinking out of the box

Yet making the right choices

Help us to follow our heart, in accordance

To your will

Forgiving and forgetting what lies behind

And moving forward to what lies ahead

We turn to you, the creator of the Universe

To guide our footsteps

O Lord
