A light for my life

Stop trying to please man!!

Are you sitting there worrying about how someone is going to respond to you?  STOP

There are always going to be people around who take pleasure in finding what is wrong, in creating chaos where there is none, in making your life miserable because THEY themselves are actually the miserable ones.

Who will you ultimately be answering to?   I can guarantee that when your book of life is opened, they won’t be the ones reading it.

YOU are a child of GOD!!    Take your worries, your struggles, concerns- TAKE IT ALL to the one who created you and knows every hair upon your head.   You may not know or completely understand how God can handle your situation, but that is none of your business!!   Let HIM handle your situations.  Your job is to TRUST and BELIEVE.

I pray that this word has helped someone today.  Keep being a light to shine upon the world.   You never know how many people are being touched by your example.

Psalm 119:105 (KJV)–   They word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Finding Five Minutes

This morning, I realized that I don’t start my day out with God.   I wake up, realize I’m still exhausted, and then begrudgingly get out of bed and attempt to make myself look and feel human so that each task can be checked off in my planner.  Most of the time, though, I end up overwhelmed and discouraged.

I know me, and I know that I am not the person who will spend hours a day reading my Bible or committing to a devotional.  That’s pretty ironic since I wrote a devotional…  but anyway…  =)

I stumbled upon this website this morning, and this article hit my “AH-HA” nerve.  It’s just what I needed today to help me deal with everything that’s going on.  I hope you find it helps you to start out this week.   Blessings to you~ Angela Walsh

Excerpt by Dawn Paoletta:

There’s a saying about the little things in life. It’s the little things, so the saying goes that can end up being the big things. This can be true in relationships, careers, and attitudes. A teensy mouse can terrify a huge elephant, and so the story goes, one young man with the proper vision took down a giant who had defied armies. The unnoticed dripping faucet by day rings out like a maddening racket in the quietness of night, when one longs for quiet and sleep. It’s the little things we are thankful for, we rejoice in and the little things heaped upon us that can undo us in one moment.

It’s no wonder we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed when we deal with bits of discouragement daily. Who can avoid all negativity?

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

You have a gift that was bestowed upon you even before you were placed on this earth.   The problem arises when we are taught to ignore those inherent feelings and listen to what society tells us is the appropriate path for our lives.

God has a reason for you to be here.

No one is greater, more special, or more deserving.

We all have a plan.

We all matter in the eyes of Father God.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself being happy.  What comes to mind when you think about this?

What comes to mind when you think about this?

Pity Parties

Ever have a day, week, month, LIFE that left you wondering why God even bothered to put you into this world?

It’s as if some of us were just born to be in bad situations.   It’s so easy to be down and see the hurtful, negative, and unfair situations that surround you.

Someone tells you that you have a purpose and you become even more resentful because words aren’t changing your situation.

Reality check: the only person that can change your situation is YOU.

Stop relying on PEOPLE to change your life.  The reality is that 99% of people won’t work on helping you unless it benefits them in some way.  That’s just human nature.

Today, no matter how small the steps have to be, do one thing to improve your situation.

I don’t know your needs, dreams, or future plans.   I do know that you aren’t accomplishing anything by sitting around in a pool of pity all day.

Get up.   Take a shower.   Refresh your mind.  Spend time praying and asking God to open your eyes to His message for you.

If you truly want to improve your life, take the steps to get there.  You might be uncomfortable for some time, but at least you won’t be stagnant.

You Are Gifted

1 Corinthians 12:4-7 ESV

4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

Do you realize that you were made for, and with, a purpose?

Think about that one…   YOU have a PURPOSE

One God… Many People… Many Gifts

How are you using your gifts to help others?  How do you know what your gifts are?

Think about it…  are there things that come naturally to you?  Things that you enjoy? Things that motivate you and drive you to do better?

You are not made to drudge through a miserable existence.  You have God-given gifts that were created to make life better and praise the One who created us.

Imagine using those gifts as the foundation for your business.  Do you think you would struggle as much if you were living each day using the gifts given?  If you are fulfilling your true purpose, defining your life the way it was meant to be, and not being ashamed of anything done in HIS name, you would be so fulfilled and ready to encourage others.

Make a list of what you truly enjoy, then think of how you can create a life around that list.  Do what you love, and you’ll never “work” a day of your life again.

Be blessed and Be a blessing
