There is no problem too big God cannot solve.

There is no mountain too tall He cannot move.

There is no storm too dark God cannot calm.

There is no sorrow too deep, God cannot soothe.

That’s the way the song goes…

And that’s the way… our God rolls 🙂

 

But our life at times is filled with so much “noise” from the world around us

that we can’t even be “still” before Him even for a few moments

to be in His presence.

That even the internal noise of our thoughts rob us of those precious times with Him.

 

In the quietness of our soul we can experience such peace and healing, strength and a blessed assurance.

In sweet surrender His grace immerses us into His Love.

It is where we begin to hear Him more clearly.

His voice… His whispers…

It is where our prayer life grows and our faith is supernaturally edified.

In the “stillness of our soul” we are in a place in His Throne of Grace

 

Don’t be afraid to be “still” before Him.

Once we do and make it a habit.

Life is more fulfilling and complete

in spite what’s going on around us.

Our God is an AWESOME GOD!

 

He never sleeps, never rests… waiting for us always………. with open arms…………….* 

 

Yes, be still before Him

let God AMAZE YOU! 

 

 ”So do not fear, for I am with you; 

   do not be dismayed, for I am your God. 
I will strengthen you and help you; 
   I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:9

 

For He said, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; 
   I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 
 When you pass through the waters, 
   I will be with you; 
and when you pass through the rivers, 
   they will not sweep over you. 
When you walk through the fire, 
   you will not be burned; 
   the flames will not set you ablaze. 
 For I am the LORD your God… your Savior.

Isaiah 43:1-3

Yes!!! Let’s start our day RIGHT… or any day for that matter with a great, positive and HAPPY attitude!

It’s a new day. A new week.

Yesterday is gone and past.

You can never take back, what you said or done.

But you can certainly as easily

START OVER!!!!

Get back on track and remind yourself how beautiful life is…  or can be!

New opportunities and it’s gifts and Grace

 

Are you struggling with something…?

 

Whatever it is…

Today, is your chance to CHANGE all that…

 

 

If it’s humanly possible. You can do it!

If it’s impossible. God CAN!

 

– Be creative.

– Enhance. Improve. Progress.

– Change course. Be flexible. Have a positive dialogue with yourself.

– Think out of the box. Step out of your comfort zone.

– Make a difference to someone’s day today

– Pause… sometime in the day even for a few moments to take a deep breath…. To appreciate the day!

If it’s not working out, “pause”  again… to get your composure back. Get your second wind. And ask for His “Grace” above. 

– – Most importantly, don’t forget God in your every day life. Talk to Him anytime of the day. And ask Him for faith even as small as a mustard seed. You’ve heard haven’t you? His Word says, “if you have faith as small as a mustard seed. You can tell this mountain to move and it shall.”

For it is done according to thy faith.

“Life does not play favorites.” It only gives back… to us…  what we put in first. Not the other way around.

Get into the habit of filtering what you allow your mind to dwell upon most of the time. If you allow a lot of garbage, then, you will have a lot of garbage in your life.

Soar and fly like an eagle…. rest if you must at times. We all need them after all.

Keep on looking on what’s before you and not what’s behind you. Looking at yesterdays only purpose is to learn the lessons life is teaching us. It’s not suppose to make us bitter or angry or change who we are but to GROW.

 

Look more of what’s good in people and your life…


“The more beauty you see in your life, the more your life becomes beautiful.”

Let Your Light Shine Bright

What good is it
if you have eyes and yet can’t see others’ point of view?
and put yourself in someone else’s shoes?
What good is it
if you only see others mistakes and not your own?

What good is it 

if you can speak but what comes out of it are curses, complains & criticisms most of the time?

And what good is it

if you have a heart and yet choose not to forgive? 

Don’t lit up another’s candle to brighten the world,
light up first the candle within you…
and the rest of the world will light up*
Let’s be more curious than judgmental…
more understanding and less critical,
more constructive, encouraging & positively engaging…
then our world would be a better place.

Eye On The Prize

There are times we are not at our best.

There will be days when nothing is working out.

We won’t make the shots we usually do.

React in a way that is out of our character..

Or sometimes, it just pours when it rains.

But what’s important is how we bounce back in life.

God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons we could not learn in any other way. The way we learn those lessons is not to deny the feelings but to find the meanings underlying them.”
– Stanley Lindquist

You and I are blessed with gifts and uniqueness.

We are “perfect in His eyes.”

Blessed to be a blessing.

To make the world a better place.

To put a smile on someone’s face.

No matter how insignificant your gifts may seem to you;

It may mean everything to someone else.

Don’t allow bitterness in your life.

FOCUS to become BETTER 🙂

Keep your eyes on the prize.

Learn from yesterday’s setbacks.

Then let them go…

They really are friends in disguise.

Today is a new day.

A new opportunity.

A new chapter to rewrite your own history where you can have a happy ending.

Live it as such….

You make the choices to what direction your life goes.

In a way, you are the author of the choices that you make.

What is your story like?

How would you like the story to unfold?

People can read our story…

by the way we live our lives.

Let’s make them count…

Let’s not just make our lives better………                but someone else’s as well. 🙂

Remember, “you are perfect in His eyes.”

Things WE Can Be THANKFUL for Today…

Sometimes, life is just so stressful it’s hard to see and APPRECIATE what we have…
take people and things for granted.
I found this old email that someone sent me which I think is so appropriate for moments like these…..

I am Thankful :

 FOR THE WIFE
WHO SAYS IT’S HOT DOGS TONIGHT,
BECAUSE SHE IS HOME WITH ME,
AND NOT OUT WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

 FOR THE HUSBAND
WHO IS ON THE SOFA
BEING A COUCH POTATO,
BECAUSE HE IS HOME WITH ME
AND NOT OUT AT THE BARS.

FOR THE TEENAGER

WHO IS COMPLAINING ABOUT DOING DISHES
BECAUSE IT MEANS SHE IS AT HOME,
NOT ON THE STREETS.
FOR THE TAXES I PAY
BECAUSE IT MEANS
I AM EMPLOYED.

FOR THE MESS TO CLEAN AFTER A PARTY
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE
BEEN SURROUNDED BY FRIENDS.

FOR THE CLOTHES THAT FIT A LITTLE TOO SNUG
BECAUSE IT MEANS
I HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT.

 


FOR MY SHADOW THAT WATCHES ME WORK

BECAUSE IT MEANS
I AM OUT IN THE SUNSHINE

FOR A LAWN THAT NEEDS MOWING,

WINDOWS THAT NEED CLEANING,
AND GUTTERS THAT NEED FIXING
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE A HOME.

FOR ALL THE COMPLAINING

I HEAR ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT
BECAUSE IT MEANS
WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH..

FOR THE PARKING SPOT

I FIND AT THE FAR END OF THE PARKING LOT
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM CAPABLE OF WALKING
AND I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH TRANSPORTATION.

FOR MY HUGE HEATING BILL
BECAUSE IT MEANS
I AM WARM.

 


FOR THE LADY BEHIND ME IN CHURCH

WHO SINGS OFF KEY BECAUSE IT MEANS
I CAN HEAR.

AT THE END OF THE DAY
BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE BEEN
CAPABLE OF WORKING HARD.

IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS
BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM ALIVE.
You and I might have more problems than these.
But I am sure “there are people that have more –
and BIGGER problems than we do…”

And that… we can be thankful for!  🙂

The Bible is the most ever sold book and more often never read or forgotten.

It boggles the imagination.

If people only knew the power, the blessings, the wisdom and guide for our everyday living the Book contains…

People will read it 24/7.

But the Book can only work by “faith.”

 

Not logic or any rationale, or philosophy or physics.

For God is Spirit.

Ask God’s Spirit (Holy Spirit) to enlighten you and give you clarity and understanding.

Before you begin to read His Word on the keys to a long life and prosperity…..

Invite the Holy Spirit to renew your mind and your spirit

that you may experience God in a whole new way.

A personal way. 🙂

 

Keys To A Long Life & Prosperity

PROVERBS 3:1-12

My son, do not forget my teaching, 
   but keep my commands in your heart, 
2 for they will prolong your life many years 
   and bring you peace and prosperity.

 3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; 
   bind them around your neck, 
   write them on the tablet of your heart. 
4 Then you will win favor and a good name 
   in the sight of God and man.

 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart 
   and lean not on your own understanding
6 in all your ways submit to him, 
   and he will make your paths straight.[a]

 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; 
   fear the LORD and shun evil. 
8 This will bring health to your body 
   and nourishment to your bones.

 9 Honor the LORD with your wealth
   with the firstfruits of all your crops; 
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing, 
   and your vats will brim over with new wine.

11 My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline,
and do not resent his rebuke,
12 because the LORD disciplines those he loves, 
   as a father the son he delights in.

 

The Bible is our “Living Manual.” Our “Life Saver.”

Read it often. As you do, God will reveal things to you that you never thought possible. The more you read… the more He becomes real and personal to you.

And I promise you this….

He will bless you more than you can ever know or imagine….

In our journey in life, no matter how successful we may be, or happy, or satisfied. We are not exempt or can escape from the wear and tear and storms of life. The scars, the bruises. The valleys and the mountains. The heartaches and the tears life brings. We are all vulnerable even at our best.

The good news is that God promises that if we trust Him with a childlike faith, where we surrender the things we cannot control. Then, life becomes easier. Problems may not disappear the way we want them. But we can go and face them with such wonderful peace.

And he exhorts us to surrender everything to Him. He said,

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28-31

We know that through faith everything’s going to work out just fine.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  Romans 8:28

So let’s not allow the pettiness of the day steal our joy.

And if you have problems as huge as the Himalayas. Let it not take away your peace.

Fear not…..

For He is with you… till the end of time.

Please take a moment to listen to this wonderful song. “Lift Up Your Hands.”

Let it lift you up.

Comfort you.

And reassure you of His love and care.

Let’s give praise and thanks to the One and only One God.

Here are the lyrics to the song before you hear the song…

Life is not all that bad, my friend, hmmm
If you believe in yourself
If you believe there’s Someone
Who walks through life without you
You’ll never be alone
Just learn to reach out,
And open your heart
Lift up hands to God,
And He’ll show you the way.

And He said, “Cast your burdens upon Me
Those who are heavily laden,
Come to Me, all of you who are tired
Of carrying heavy loads,
For the yoke I will give you is easy
And My burden is light,
Come to Me and I will give you rest.”

When you feel the world
Is tumblin’ down on you,
And you have no one
That you can hold on to,
Just face the rising sun
And you’ll see hope,
And there’s no need to run
Lift up your hands to God,
And He’ll make you feel all right.
