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”.

I’ve learned that no mat…

I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.― Maya Angelou

To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Required: S.H.A.M.E.

For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not? (1 Corinthians 4:7)

Dear Sisters Healing Against Mental Emotions™ (S.H.A.M.E.):

To whom much is given, much is required is a fantastic way to reflect deeply this morning in terms of questioning your spiritual path today.  In Luke 12:48 it says, “But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” (NIV)  Wow!  These are certainly powerful words that needed to be shared today.

Many of you have been praying for promotions, various financial blessings, restoration in your body and peace within your homes.  However, God wants to know how have you been treating the treasures in which He has shared with you thus far?  Are you being a blessing to others?  Are you paying your tithes?  Are you contributing spiritually and mentally to the building of other sheep?  I cannot personally answer these questions for you, but these are questions that you will need to reflect upon today and answer accordingly for yourself. It is duly noted in Ecclesiastes 2: 26 “To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness.” (NIV)

In other words ladies, you must understand that accountability is everything when doing the will of God as Sisters Healing Against Mental Emotions™(S.H.A.M.E.) because it’s difficult pondering the ifs of life when you have failed to seek Him first in all things.  For this reason, I challenge each of you today to think about how you have handled your resources, your education, or your gifted abilities in which God has blessed you with over the years. Have you wasted your gifts?  Have you refused to operate your gifts at a higher-level in terms of supporting others [family, friends, or community members] when you have the resources and know how to effectively execute the task at-hand?  Or, are you all about self-gratification and self-recognition when working for God?

By the way, as you continue to grow as spiritual-beings, God wants you to think about your blessings and how you can become a greater blessing to His kingdom.  So then, if you’re weak in the area of utilizing your blessings to its fullest potential, then pray to God in this area for deliverance.  Remember, Philippians 4:13 states, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” (NIV)

In the long run, you must keep in mind that you did not create your wealth or status alone but God orchestrated each path for you to tread upon, He allowed you to connect personally with a person at a higher-level, and He allowed others to say yes even when they wanted to say no.  Therefore, He is God alone. According to James 1:5 “If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him, he will not resent it.” (TLB)

Search your heart today while doing the will of God,
