Your Miracle Is Right Around the Corner

Around the corner

When I woke up this morning, I started to meditate.  I heard the small voice of God speaking. It’s amazing how God’s presence can change our perspective and change our entire day.  Not to get too personal, but as I was preparing breakfast this morning, I felt the visitation of God.  It was very strong.

First, God wants us to “COMMAND” our mornings. Take time to pray, meditate, exercise, journal, or self-reflect.  These strategies can help “set” the temperament for our entire day.  Daily, it’s imperative that we honor God by carving out time to converse with Him. When we fail to command our mornings by honoring God, distractions from the enemy can seep into our spirit causing physical and spiritual disruptions.  When we pray, we’re equipping ourselves to withstand the blows of the enemy.  Get rooted in the word when driving to work, while drinking coffee, or while sitting in bed aimlessly.  Every moment that we invite God in, we willfully build a spiritual bridge that allows us to tap into God’s purpose for our lives.  His word daily is food to our souls and nourishment for our bodies.

Next, God doesn’t want us to compromise.  We must stand strong, and we cannot compromise our well-being in this season.  Stay focus; stay mentally healthy; stress-free, and guilt-free. I must be honest; I use to compromise myself for the sake of fitting in with others.  But as I continually grow in Christ, God reminds me to stand on His word as a guide for my life as noted in Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) where it is written that God has a plan for our lives.  It’s not to harm us, but these plans are to prosper us so that we’ll have hope as He guides and directs us into our future.  Therefore, we must stop compromising our peace.  Remember, God doesn’t function in dysfunction.  He’s a man of order. That’s why it’s important that we build a relationship with God and that we converse with Him daily as we “Command Our Mornings.”

Then, God wants us to trust HIM!!!  I believe that God’s building our FAITH in this season.  He’s building our faith with various test and trials.  Through these various test and trails, God is causing us to exercise our faith and depend totally on him.  For it is written in Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV), “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” 

Finally, God’s working a miracle in our lives.  Let’s stay strong and not sway from God when situations start to look weary.  Remember, God is watching during the test; he’s just quiet as He conducts an evaluation of our hearts and reactions to see if we’re walking by “faith” or walking by “sight”.

Be the Change That You Want to See: S.H.A.M.E.

Romans 12: 2 (KJV) says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Good Morning Change Agents,

Knowing who you are and who God has called you to be is a powerful tool.  When you allow others, things, and issues to distract who God has ordained you to be it only manifest hatred and SHAME within you.  Take time to hear from God.  Learn to embrace the real you.  Control the negative flow from your mouth, and don’t let every issue in life cripple your Godly purpose.

PUSH for your future is bright.  As a woman or man of God, you must understand that you’re a role model for your child/children.  When your child/children see you allow abusive behavior(s) in your life, when they see you speak negatively day in and day out, or when they see you accept failure without fighting back and gaining ground, you not only hurt yourself, but you’re hurting your future (AKA child/children) as well.

Living Virtuously While Accentuating The Positives (Principle #2): S.H.A.M.E.

(Google Image)

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4 NRSV)

Hello Ladies,

Many of us desire to be a virtuous woman just like the woman in Proverbs 31:10-31 even if we’re not married.  However, this powerful scripture not only apply to the married women, but it’s also applicable to the unmarried women and our daughters as well.  Therefore, as we continue our discussion on Principle #2: Accentuating The Positives, I want you to think about your truth in terms of handling your business daily as a virtuous woman or young daughter of God.  For example, this woman took care of her health [ate right, exercised, lived stress free, and obtained her yearly checkups], she acquired property [she was knowledgeable in terms of acquiring real estate…she educated herself], she balanced her finances [paid her bills on time, checked her credit report for fraudulent activities, and didn’t spend beyond her means], and she took care of her home without malicious [she cheerfully prepared meals, cleaned, listen to issues, gave healthy advice, and didn’t waste time with gossip].

Although some of us may not be married, don’t desire to be married, or we’re still waiting on God to provide the proper mate…we need to exhibit virtuous characteristics as we carry out the will of God in term of accentuating our positives.  So as we go about our daily task today, please take the time to mediate on these words while we Sip, Reflect, & Let’s Talk™.

Proverbs 31: 10-31 King James Version (KJV)

10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her

maidens.

16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be

praised.

31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Accentuate your positives by becoming a virtuous woman,
