Transforming Words Into Action

You can speak words all day long, but without action it makes them null and void.

Someone once told me to every complaint there is a solution. You know the answer, but you refuse to apply it.

Something to ponder: “Complaining never changes a situation, only action”

 

Selah!

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!!!

 

 

 

 

GRATEFUL LIFE

In spite of some of the awful things that happens on this journey called life. I awake today grateful to be among the living.

I’m grateful to have the blood running warm through each of my veins and arteries.

Grateful for a pumping heart, eyes to see, ears to hear the birds chirp every morning. The use and activities of all my limbs.

Grateful to be in my right mind.

Grateful I had the ability to get up without the assistance of another individual this morning and every morning.

Grateful for dear friends, one that is retiring today.

Grateful that she is in good health and she and her husband both are free to travel. Their son just got moved up to the Tampa Bay Rays this was such awesome timing.

With all the tragedies in life it is still great to be alive.

Each day you awake is another chance and opportunity to be or do something great and positive.

Let go of the past hurt and reach forward to higher heights of a better life.

Embrace and enjoy every moment of life!

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!!!

EMBRACE LIFE’S MOMENTS

Death is inevitable we all will experience. It is a part of life’s journey through culmination of events we all will make it to that final destination. We hear of death everyday, but when it hits close to home the reality of it sits in. You just don’t think about it.

A dear friend of mine passed away over the weekend. I’m double hurt because they called me two weeks ago and I had yet to return the call. I would always say: ” when I finish what I’m doing I’ll call” with so many distractions I never got a chance too.

He and his wife was and still is a great friend. They encouraged me, feed me when I was hungry, gave sound advise when needed, and most importantly they were there when I needed them and didn’t need them.

My message today, take time out to embrace life moments. Once gone you can never redo. Life is short and we know death is inevitable. No one knows his or her appointed time, but we know we will evenly reach that destination.

Let go of past hurts and issues with our loved ones, because I’m sure nothing that has already been done can  be changed. Enjoy every moment of life, family and friends one day we all will experience our final destination on earth.

I end with my advise for today and everyday:

“TURN DOWN THE VOLUME OF LIFE”, LIVE, LOVE AND FORGIVE!  Selah!
