During the last 8 months of my life, I have been through the most transformative experiences. Experiences that made me evaluate my values, passions, and direction in life. One thing that stood firm in this time of transition was the need for peace. I gained some things, lost some things but found a true center, a solid direction that is unwavering. This came by asking myself honest questions. I encourage you to use the last few months of this year and ask some difficult questions that will lead you to a bright and clear 2020. Welcome, a 2020 that is surrounded by peace.
What do I want out of life?
What is the basis of my faith/ why do I believe what I believe?
¿Estás listo para perdonar? una de las mayores razones por las que extiendo el perdón a las personas que me rodean es porque soy honesto acerca de lo defectuoso que soy. cuando era más joven, me enfrentaría a la idea de que hago muchas cosas mal. Siempre tuve una razón o una explicación lógica de por qué Cometí un error o dejé caer a alguien. Nunca admitiría que había arruinado o hecho algo malo. Por ejemplo: “si la persona que conduce delante de mí iría más rápido, no sería tarde” “si hubieras madurado, sería capaz de ser honesto contigo” si comete un error, no importa cuál sea la explicación que sigue, debe pedir perdón. La palabra de Dios dice pedir perdón todos los días. servimos a un Dios que quiere que venamos a él con nuestros problemas y nuestro problema para que él pueda intercambiar nuestras dificultades con su provisión y gracia. si no aprendemos cómo reconocer nuestras malas acciones, entonces estamos diciendo que no hay necesidad de un Salvador.
Todo el mundo comete errores, su tiempo que aprendemos a convertir esos errores a la única persona que puede arreglarlos. Dios. #SLiM See. Aprender. Inspirar. Hacer movimientos
Do you feel as if your life is full of stress? Then its time
to do what I call a 360. Look around at your friends, family, job, and
relationships to see what needs to change.
This meditation Monday I want to teach you how to find peace
in your day to day life. One truth that must be told before peace is achieved is…
what is the source of the stress?
If the stress comes from finances, take a moment
and write down your bills.
Check out Dave Ramsey which is and incredible
resource for budgets and a debt free life!!!
Relationships- learn how to say goodbye to
people who do not positively contribute to your faith and development.
Family- write out what the issues are in your
family, what problems and concerns have you been holding on through the years
and ask yourself two questions:
What would your day look like if I chose to
What would my life look like if they were not in
The answers to this question will allow you to see if that person
should be in your life. This also allows you to see that forcing the family
member has nothing to do with the opposing family member and everything to do
with your daily peace. Forgiving your family member will free you from the obligation
of anger, sadness, and stress.
When you think of meditation the picture is usually sitting
in a quiet candle lit room clearing your mind and heart of the things which may
ailed you. But there is more to mind cleansing meditation.
In fact there are activities you can do to calm yourself
down and free yourself from stress. I will list 3 of my favorites below, let me
know if you try or enjoy these as well.
I have a playlist for EVERYTHING, one for being
happy, sad, motivated and more. Music has a unique ability to lift you beyond
the current mental state and into the place you would like to be. Make a
playlist, sing the songs, and watch your mood instantly change.
Letting your emotions out artistically is always
a great way to express your mood without negative repercussions. With art you
can be as sharp and dark as you would like and then walk away leaving both the
art and the emotion on the canvas.
Instead of allowing emotion to build up try going
to the gym and working out your emotions. When you are in the gym you can turn
off the situation in your mind and turn on your adrenaline!
Padre celestial, yo (nosotros) venimos a ti ahora en el nombre de mi (nuestro) Señor y Salvador Jesucristo.
Padre celestial, yo (nosotros) te pedimos que me des (nosotros) sanación divina ahora en cada área de mi (nuestra) vida, espíritu, mente, voluntad, emociones y ser físico de acuerdo con tu plan divino y orden para mi (nuestra) vida. Yo (nosotros) recibimos tu sanación divina, la plenitud y la novedad de la vida (s), en el nombre de Jesucristo.
Señor I (nosotros) pedimos y recibimos belleza por las cenizas, el aceite de la alegría por el luto, la prenda de alabanza por el espíritu de pesadez: porque yo (nosotros) somos árboles de rectitud, la plantación del Señor, para que seas glorificado, en el nombre de Jesús. Hágase tu voluntad en la tierra como en el cielo, padre, yo (nosotros) oramos con agradecimiento en el nombre de Jesús
¡Amén! Padre celestial, te pido que me des (a nosotros) y a cada persona que (nosotros) oramos por hoy según Juan 16:23, la manifestación de cada milagro y cada sanación que me has dado (a nosotros) y la manifestación de la sanación divina y la salud divina en mi (cada uno de nuestros) cuerpo (s). ¡Amén!
You must see this incredible testimony of a woman who was told that she would never sing after she was poisoned in life. BUT THE POWER OF GOD! Take a moment and check out this interview and let me know how this clip touches you.
I want you introduce you
to Michael Nelder. This piece,
“Dirty Prayers” from poet Michael Nelder closed out #RHETORIC2018. The piece was so
moving, as he delicately shared the confessions of his prayer life with the
audience. This piece is a suggestion to critically think about the prayers we
pray on an individual level and what they say about our hearts. It is a
beautiful examination of how gratitude can inform our prayers.
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
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.
3 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.”
My daughter taught me to love myself. Birthing a beautiful
chocolate princess with cotton coils and a dimpled smile opened my eyes to the
beauty that is me. The way she studies how I hold my shoulders curve my lips
and tame my hair brought awareness to how I carried myself.
I had to think …
“Am I teaching my
daughter to like herself or love herself?”
“Am I putting up with my looks or appreciation my looks?”
Before my daughter I had not considered the importance of presenting
myself to the world. Not as a performance, but in an intentional way that says,
“I am important, I am loved, and I deserve respect.”
While I compliment my daughter and show her love, I realized
that the most effective way to teach her self-worth and confidence is to SHOW self-worth
