The Master of Originality

One thing I am positive about is that we all were created with an inner ability to create. You have to discover what has been imparted into your spirit and manifest that gift into the natural realm.

This is my belief: God the creator of the universe (which includes me and you) has given us all the ability to gain wealth. The issue with this truth is everyone will not use that ability.

I do believe stealing is not a gift, though some may argue the statement. We all have creative ideas and some ideas may be similar, but there will be something different about each because we are all different. If I make cupcakes and my friend does as well, to me that is not stealing or not being original. My recipe would differ in some way I can use butter milk and he can use condense milk. It is all in the ingredients that make each product different.

There is no room for jealousy either, because there are enough people on planet earth to make each of our business thrive. Meaning what is for me is for me we both will attract the clients meant for us.

So there is no need to take another persons recipes or quotes and make them yours. Just take the time to meditate and discover your own God-given abilities, creativity or talents.

Bottomline: Seek The Master Creator of originality to tap into you own “unique” gifting.

Selah!!!

 

 

 

 

Faith Without Action

I deem myself a Christian, but I also question clichés Christian folks make.

Conversing with a lady and the scenario of her situation was she is being mistreated on her job of twenty-five years,having to take on responsibilities for her co-workers duties and expected to have all her projects completed on time as well.

She made the remark: “I’m not going to complain, because God is going to give me my reward in heaven.” I thought, what the ham and cheese (to put it nicely)!

You are telling me God has no desire for you to prosper or have rewards on earth? I truly disagree!

I understand being patient and doing what you have to do when on a job, but when is enough, enough. I don’t understand why we as Christian are taught to just wait and take whatever is thrown your way. My opinion that is not biblical. The bible clear reads: “faith without works (action) is dead”.

This is total lack of knowledge. In a lot of cases we as Christians do whatever the preacher says instead of reading the word for ourselves to know if he/she is misquoting the bible. The bible also clearly reads: “study to show thyself approved”.

I have been on the band wagon of ignorance before, but not anymore.

I have learned in the past year to stand up for myself, especially if I feel I am been mistreated. I defend myself decently and in order, you do not have to be irate to get your point across.

You can not just sit and wait for something to happen, the bible also reads:”God gives you the power (ability) to get wealth”. You can not just go to work and sit at home and expect anything to happen if you do not apply yourself.

Bottomline: I have never met a rich person that sat at home and did nothing and became wealthy. You have to put faith with action.

All this to say is there is a time and place for everything. As a Christian, I do not believe you have to be mistreated or abused and think that if God wants me out he will move on my behalf.

I do not believe it works that way.

I leave you with this thought:” If you are believing to win the lottery and you have not purchased a ticket, how do you expect to win?

Selah!

Launching To Higher Heights

I recently had an interesting conversation with a friend. I never realized that we were so indifferent to certain things in life. I’ve finally analyzed this conversation…just because you don’t understand the purpose of one’s life does not mean their course in life is evil or wrong.

I shared with her that I wanted to work for a movie studio.

Her response was: That career path is not of God. It puzzled me! You see, some christians are sometimes too deep for their own being. I can have a relationship with God and work for a movie studio. If that’s the case why does any Christian works.

My analogy: we live on this earth and in order to survive this journey in most cases it will consist of working. My working for a movie studio has nothing to do with my spiritual connection with God.

I have always had the desire to be in that field (not necessarily an actress, but if the opportunity arise I’ll happily accept the offer) to work behind the scenes. Working behind the scenes will still make me apart of any production created.

What she fail to realize is that we all are different and uniquely made. Your desires may not be like mine and vise versa. I like a Range Rover you may like an Explorer, but that does not make your choice evil or wrong.

“My point is what’s for me is for me”.

So many years I have allowed people to make decisions and choices for me and now that I’m older and wiser I feel I’ve missed out on so many opportunities, because I did not make the choices I desired.

Now I have taken full charge of my life and others are having a hard time adjusting to my choices and for some reason feels that I think I’m better than them. No! I have just chosen to launch and fly to higher heights.

“I have left the nest”.

Bottom line: If you desire to be an actress, baker, chef, manager etc. the choice is yours. Don’t let others dictate your life or discourage you from pursuing your hearts desires. You choose today your life path, it is never too late. Selah!!!

 

You Have Grown!

I was speaking with a friend the other day and we were discussing change and growth. I often wondered why when you begin to move upward others seem to think you believe you are better than them.

This is the response she gave to me:

It is not that you think you are better than them. It is you all where in a circle, your circle has grown (mind) and they are still stuck. You have come out and have recognized that there is more to life.

Selah!!!

I am thankful for the journey with the friends that I have and had, but as life revolves people come and go.

Life is about seasons and I have learned over the years that there are friends in your life for seasons. I believe when ones season is up another person will replace them, hoping they too as you will see beyond the inner circle.

TIES THAT BIND

On a sad note, this week a dear friend of mine passed away. I pondered the thought, did he die prematurely? He touched the lives of so many through his music, writings and ministry.

He was a true worship leader in every since of the word. I believe there was so much more for him and I don’t believe he received all that God had for him.

When you allow man to dictate your life you lose out on many opportunities. I believe in this life when you give of yourself you should reap a harvest on earth.

Bottomline: You can’t let people keep you in a box because they are in one. It’s called “control”. People that try to control others see the greatness in you and therefore they try to hinder you from moving forward in life. In their mind they don’t want you to achieve more than them.

My declaration is to stop allowing people to keep me boxed in. There has to come a time to get out of the box and proceed to fulfil your purpose in life not in the life of others.

Seize the moment each day to reach for more and not to stand stagnant in the wait of others. Selah!!!

I AM AFFIRMED

So often we wait for man to affirm us, but the truth of the matter is you are “already affirmed. You were affirmed when you were created.

The definition of affirm is: to maintain as true.

We sometimes walk through life’s journey waiting for that one defining moment. Wondering when will I be noticed and do I matter. You most certainly do!

Everyone will have their chance in life to be seen and discovered. We all have an appointed time and a purpose before leaving this earth. It’s up to us to tap into the divine order of our existence.

You have to stand firm and know no matter how long it takes, your door or window of opportunity will be opened unto you.

You choose the path to take on this journey, and yes there maybe road blocks ahead, keep moving. Rest a sure, even a detour will lead you to your destination (sometimes quicker).

I stand strong on my belief that life is what you make it. No one can prevent you from becoming who you want to be except you. You hold the key.

I leave you with this thought: ” If you are your own worst enemy, begin today being your #1 Best Friend. Selah!
