GREATER THINGS 

What inspires you? What makes you tick? Speaks to you? Moves you? Makes you smile? Gives you a sigh of relief? Gets you up and out of bed and ready to face it head on? Ignites the passion and ambition in you? Presents itself time and time again? That’s what you should be fighting for. Accept the challenges, trust yourself, open yourself to the opportunities in front of you. Do not let yourself become your biggest enemy. Love yourself and love what you do. You were made for greater things, let it embrace you.

I believe in you –
in the things that are important to you and in the way you choose to live your life…
I believe that you can accomplish anything you set out to do, that you have many talents
and the wisdom to use them well…
I believe that you have what it takes to overcome obstacles and to grow from every experience
life brings your way…
I believe in your courage, your compassion, your integrity, and your strength. I believe in your goodness…
I believe in you.

Ready or not…

Have you ever thought the things we want we haven’t received because we’re not ready? God is always and still molding us and maturing us and we’re so eager and don’t know how to be contempt in discomfort that we obsess on the things we want and don’t even know we’re obsessing. If it’s not in our lives yet, it’s because we’re not ready. God doesn’t make us go through hoops and fire for the things he already prepared for us. When it’s ours to be, it’ll come so easily you won’t even know how to believe it yourself let alone anyone else believing. I only speak from experience and going back and forth with my relationship with Him. When it does come, I always think wow “I was not ready for that had I received it a year ago or two years ago” You and I are a lot alike whether you believe it or not. Of course not in our personalities but in our stories and emotional trials. Each day that goes by and the older I get, there’s a “test” in front of me. Hate to call it test. An opportunity for me to grow and mature and I’ve seen how important and valuable building relationships are in this growing and maturing that if I can’t learn to do that with those who are already part of my life, family, friends, coworkers, etc., then I am still not where God wants me to be to where overflow of blessing can come into my life. At the end of the day, the blessings He gives are not yours to keep. We’re on this earth, blessed to be a blessing to someone else. If I can’t do that in my low, then there still plenty room to grow.

Mind, Body, Soul

What are you feeding your mind, body, and soul? Take the time to reflect on the things you’ve allowed to enter into your life. What are you in control of that you can change for a better you? We are our own greatest enemies, but what if we change the way we think? What if we change our habits that bring out the worst in us? What if we start with the simple things, like remembering the good things in our lives or just simply thanking God for opening our eyes in the morning and reveling in the glory of another day and His existence?

When we start to allow positivity and thankfulness into our lives, we then become our own greatest supporters. The ones who believe in someone so strong it attracts and draws others looking for a ray of hope into their lives. That’s you! What if someone guaranteed you could have all of your hopes and dreams come true for you and your loved ones tomorrow if you start to become your own greatest supporter and trust yourself today, would you do it?

The mind is a powerful tool. We start to think it; therefore we start to believe it. What we feed it, becomes all that we know and if it’s not what we hoped, we dread it; or we can change that and make it something to begin to look forward to. Anticipation so strong and powerful within us, we begin to feed on it, sleep thinking about it, breathe life into it, and start living it. So, what are you feeding yourself today? Do you see destiny through the trials and the naysayers, through your own negative thoughts; or do you see no way out? It’s your mind, body, and soul; you are what you eat, so what are you going to feed it?
