Meditation Monday:

devotion, faith, God, heart and mind

Today I want to introduce you to true power, when you learn how to control your thoughts you learn how to control your life.

Through meditation I have learned to build my own vehicle for receiving and experiencing the situations that come into my life.  I for one didn’t want to live at the mercy of my emotions.  Being driven by your emotions is like strapping your mentality into a seat on a roller coaster that pushes your body back and forth until life decides that the ride is done. My body was worn and mentality exhausted, until I learned that I could take my power back, that I could construct my own ride for the experience called life.

Through meditation I have learned how to slow down, speed up, and control the turns in my newly constructed life. I have learned that every bump on the road doesn’t have to make me sick to my stomach or have lingering aches and pains.

This month I want to share with you some of the tools I have chosen on this journey that has helped me build a powerful and productive lifestyle. Join me!

Forgiveness Part 2

devotion, faith, life

How Do We Forgive?

We make up our minds and our hearts to let go, knowing that carrying around anger and judgment toward others or ourselves is a burden we no longer wish to bear.

Beginning to Learn to Forgive

By Rev. Bill Englehart

Jesus was once asked how often one should forgive. Seven times? His response was, “Not seven times, but, I tell you seventy-seven times” (Matthew 18:21-22). 

Seventy-seven is not a magic number. Earlier translations say seventy times seven, or 490. It was simply Jesus’ way of saying forgiveness can be infinite.

To understand forgiveness, we need to understand what it is not. It is not about condoning bad behavior or saying we must trust those who have mistreated us. It does not mean that there will be no justice for bad acts.

Consider this from H. Emilie Cady’s Lessons in Truth, written more than 100 years ago:

“To forgive does not simply mean to arrive at a place of indifference to those who do personal injury to us; it means far more than this. To forgive is to give for—to give some kind of actual definite good in return for evil given.”

This may seem like a tall order but when done, we can see the results straightaway. I have known parents who forgave the person who killed their child. When I asked why, they said that if they had not, they would be consumed with anger and bitterness. Forgiveness was the answer.

Dreams

devotion

Dreams, déjà vu, ah-ha moments all have one thing in common. It is a moment where the supernatural meets the natural.

Have you ever experienced a time where you see God connect the dots and make muddy waters clear on and idea or situation?

The special moment is important, because if you are a believer, then you understand that God has intention in our life and desires for us to tap into His glory and provision. When we present our bodies as a living sacrifice pure and open to the will of God, we then encourage these life altering moments into our life.

What do I mean by a sacrifice, I mean “praying instead of watching tv ” More examples are : Reading your bible every day, taking time out of your day to worship God just because He is God. All of these thigs are a sacrifice because quite frankly you don’t have to do them.

God is always assisting and uplifting us, we must choose to tune into His love and divine power.

The Flow of Life

devotion, faith, heart and mind

Like an ocean, the perception of self-flaws clashes and evolves with age, experience and time.

No one feels confident all the time, capable all of the time, committed all of the time… so what do you do when the tides change?

My advice is to set up reminders of your best self during a high tide while you are feeling motivated and refreshed. Cut out pictures, journal or even record a positive reminder of who you want to be and what you want out of life. The bible says, “make the vision clear.” While the journey can be unpredictable, there is a substantial benefit to adding intention into the recipe of life.

Having a vision will remind your flesh that low moments are temporal but the work you do now has the power to reconstruct your future.

Habakkuk 2:2-3 King James Version (KJV)

“2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

An Attitude of Worship:

devotion, faith, heart and mind, inspiration, life, Uncategorized

No matter where you are and what you are doing an attitude of worship can elevate the way your experience life.

What is an attitude of worship? It is when you can look into the face of life and see God in it. Guess what, as long as we live on this earth there will be both good days and bad days. But when we choose to find “God” in every situaion, we are taking a fighting stance in life. You may be late to work, but you can say, “Ok God you may have been protecting me from a potential car accident, thank you, Lord.” A relationship may end, but God may have been trying to get you the job you have been praying for located in the state your partner didn’t want to travel to.

The Bible says that all thing work together for our good. So if we stop looking at the situation and look at God, we will then see the glory in every story. That my friend is an attitude of worship. Choosing to live in a place where God rules, thrives, and has His perfect way.
