Face-to-face .........

In this day of e-mail, text messages, and cell phones, taking for personal visits is not always a priority. i myself am guilty of that. When was the last time you had a face to face visit with a fellow Friend?????

while there are many ways to communicate there is no substitute for taking time to fellowship and share your love, experiences, family, laughter and gods word with a friend. I encourage that today you stop and think of who in your life is in need of a face-to face visit..

Enjoy your journey........

Life has its course! sometime it seems you are always putting out fires, or fixing or finding solutions. We are always moving towards some objective in our lives. As soon as we finish one another will take its place We are always extending our faith one type of struggle or another. Whatever we are believing god for right now cold happen a year from now, but by that time we will be believing or praying to god about something else. I share with you that we are always will be going to spend the majority of our lives waiting for something we should learn to enjoy life as it unfolds. If we do not life will pass us by, and we will never enjoy where we are right now.. don't let struggles steal your joy today choose to be joyous at all times..

pause and reflect...

"begin with loyalty and justice with yourself" by Miguel Ruiz

"learn to see, not just beleive in what you hear but learn to see truth and speak truth" by Miguel Ruiz

do you have the courage to speak agains injustice? I will admit sometimes I allow fear to steal my joy and enthusiasm to speak against injustice. But through my friend Se'Lah I have learned that love is powerful, that one random of act of kindness can make a difference, that a smile to a stranger may bring joy.... one love...

please take a moment to read this thought-provoking post, reflecting.

Where ever you are.....

In this day and age, many people are filled with worry about their future. They live stressed out, wondering, “What’s going to happen if I get laid off?” “How am I going to handle it if my loved one doesn’t make it?” Or, “My parents are getting older. How can I take care of them and my own family as well?” Here is the answer: God’s grace is going to be there at every stage of your weather is at school, on vacation, or just sitting , praying, God will meet you where ever you are in life to help you do whatever you need to do.
See, God’s grace is what saves us, but that’s not all. Grace is God’s enabling power. His grace will give you the strength, wisdom and favor to accomplish what you could not normally accomplish on your own. His grace is sufficient for whatever you need in your future.

But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out His special favor on me — and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by His grace”(1 Corinthians 15:10, NLT)

Focus on Love.....

Let me encourage you to get up every day and focus on what you do have in life. Be thankful for the blessings of the little things, even when you don't get what you expect. As you keep your mind and heart focused in the right direction, approaching each day with faith and gratitude, I believe you will be empowered to live life to the fullest and enjoy the abundant life He has promised you!

"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV).

Just Play......

Several days ago as i was cleaning my closet i found some Jacks. Wow did it bring back memories. I used to love playing this game. i decided to play for a few minutes, a few minutes turned into an hour. It was the best hour of my life. I was at peace full of joy and love. I could not contain my laughter as i played and lost and played again.

"the law of love could be best understood and learned throughout little children" by Mahatma Gandhi....

At some point we stopped playing and having fun like when we were children. As we became adults we became more serious bout life. But you know what seriousness brings serious circumstances into our lives... When you play and have fun you feel really good and feel good about your challenges and circumstances. My friends don't forget life is suppose to be fun. Play with your imagination. Laugh, skip, run, fly a kite, play jacks, play with your old dolls, the point is just play... enjoy life

Some helpfull tips on controlling our thoughts......

Did you know you can be free from negative thinking? The first step to your freedom is facing the truth and saying, "I'm a negative person and I want to change." If you really want to, you can overcome it because according to the Bible, you're a new person in Christ

Here are some tips that have helped me learn to control my thoughts

find out what may be blocking any positive progress.

Identify Your Obstacles

Have you ever thought that nothing good is going to happen to you? Maybe you've even said something like "If I don't expect anything good to happen, I won't be disappointed if it doesn't." These thoughts are obstacles in your mind, and simply recognizing them will pave the way to your freedom.
Practice the Positive

Once you've identified any obstacles, the next step is to start practicing being positive in all kinds of situations.
Say What God's Word Says

Nearly everything God has brought me through has happened by believing and confessing His Word. I recommend that you not only purposely think right thoughts, but that you go the extra mile and speak them out loud as personal confessions of faith

I encourage you to spend time examining His Word and comparing it to your thought life. Give God time to help you put your thoughts in line with His. Make up your mind to work toward changing your way of thinking. I've found the best way to become a positive thinker is to ask God for a lot of help—and to ask for it often.

10 Minutes of Turbulence....

A year ago I was on a flight to D.R. That plane was shaking so violently you'd have thought it was going to break apart. And trying to stay faithfull I thought, "This is it! It's over. There is no way we're going to make it through." But sure enough after about ten minutes that seemed like an eternity, we made it through the turbulence, and it was just as calm and smooth as it was before. An hour or two later, we landed safely at our destination.
I've found that's the way it is in life sometimes. We're going along and everything is just fine—you have a good job, you're healthy, the children are blessed. Then you hit some turbulence. You get a negative medical report. A relationship goes through a storm. You're named in a lawsuit. Your mind tells you, "This is the way it's always going to be. You're never going to get well. That lawsuit is going to sink you. The relationship is never going to work out." No, let me assure you, you're just in a part of your "ten minutes of turbulence." Things may look really bad, but this too shall pass. God is still on the throne. He has brought you safe and sound this far, and He's going to carry you through. Just because it's rocky and people around you are hollering and you feel like panicking, doesn't mean it's over. Sooner or later you're going to come through that turbulence, and it's going to be just as smooth and calm as it was before.
Maybe you're going through your ten minutes of turbulence right now. I've heard it said, "Trouble is inevitable, but misery is optional." You may be in the midst of a storm, but don't let that storm get in you. The way you fight through is to keep your focus on Jesus. Keep singing His praise because praise precedes the victory. Hold on to Him and let Him carry you to the place of safety and peace today.
