Thankful to God

How thankful are you towards God?

Have you ever noticed that its how we look at things and our perspective that makes such a difference. So when you go outside and look at a rosebush do you lean forward and  enjoy the beauty of the rose and smell the fragrance or do you not like to fool with rosebushes because they have so many thorns?

What is it that you see in life? Do you have a tendency to see the good or to concentrate on the negative? It all depends on your perspective.  Today focus your mind and heart on being thankful to God. As your heart is thankful your life will be blessed.

Growth Takes Time

Does it ever feel like you aren’t growing as fast as you would like?

growth-takestime

Growth takes time, it takes it.  At least 9 months in the human womb for life to be nurtured before a child is born.  It takes dozens of years after that human being to grow into someone who actually cares about other people.

In a similar way our new birth in Christ is a starting place of growth in our lives.  Growth takes time.  The starting place for growth in you and me is to learn to live generously, caring for others, laying down your life for others to grow.

Turn Negative Thinking Around

Do you ever struggle with negative thoughts?

Turn negative thinking around

One afternoon I admitted my negative thoughts to my own mother.  She’s a pretty spunky lady and she put her hand on her hip and shook her head to one side and said, “Sue, you’re in stinkin’ thinking.  Well stinkin’ thinking is a downward staircase leading to a dark place in our emotions.

When you are stuck in this dungeon of dreary thoughts it will impact every area of your life.  You can’t afford to get stuck in a funk for long.  Turn negative thinking around by believing and speaking the true promises of God.

The Lord protects and defends me; I trust in him. He gives me help and makes me glad; I praise him with joyful songs.
Psalm 28:7

Go to the Other Side

Have you ever been stuck in the middle of a storm?

Focus your thoughts

Jesus was completely at peace and relaxed in the same storm where the disciples were horrified.

Our perspective needs to shift off of the waves of our lives and onto the words of Jesus.

When you are in the middle of a painful situation, you must believe that life will get better.

We get stuck when we don’t know what’s coming next.

The next time you are in the middle of painful situation focus your thoughts on what God has said rather than on how you feel.

That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him.  A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped.  Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!”Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

Mark 4:35-41

Let Go of Anger

Do you have trouble letting go of your anger?

When you or I let anger fester in our hearts we give a foothold to the devil. Let go of anger and find freedom for your soul and healing for your relationships.

let go of anger

When I walk in unrestrained anger, I might as well open up the door to my home and say devil come on in. Anger can fuel strife and create division in your relationships. You and I are more likely to say things we don’t really mean.

Let go of the petty things that make you angry, learn to forgive, turn on the shower of God’s love to put out the hot embers of anger festering in your soul. Close the door of your heart to anger by opening up to God’s love. God’s perfect love casts out fear and steady’s your heart. 

“Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.
For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.”
Psalm 37:8-9

Desperation is a Driving Force for Change

What helps you find real and lasting change in your life?

driving force for change

Desperation is a driving force for change in my life. It is during the pressure cooker seasons in my life when I find out the areas of weakness and vulnerability.

Pressure cookers are known for being hot, dangerous and able to blow the lid.

When you are going through a stress filled time in your life you may find your own heart in need of God’s healing. Relax. God knows just what it takes in your life to open your heart to change.

Allow Him to change you, you will find peace in his presence.

“Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way.

The Lord be with all of you.”

2 Thessalonians 3:16

You Can Do It

My daughter came to me in tears one night. “Mom, we have to run the mile tomorrow. It’s my last chance to make the soccer  team.”

You Can Do It

“What do you want me to do honey? Do you want me to come to practice? She wiped her tears and nodded her head.

So The next day I showed up and as I am watching her run her final lap around the track and I’m listening to the coach call out the time, I realize that she’s not going to make it. So in a split second I chose what to do.

I dropped my purse and sprinted across the center of the football field in front of everyone  to the other side of the track. I put my hand on her back and said, “YOU CAN DO IT!” Immediately, she increased her pace and ran to the finish line with the cheers of everyone.  Today I say to you, “YOU CAN DO IT!”

Just Do it With God
