Blessed to Bless

No matter where you are in life, or what’s happening around you, start looking for more of God’s favor. Don’t settle for where you are. 

Don’t settle for just barely getting by. Believe that God is good, and He wants to do more in and through you. I find it strange that some preachers will preach against prosperity and then ask their congregation for more money.  Makes no sense. God is out for our good not our harm.  He does want to pour out His favor on us.  It can come in many different forms.  Money is one of the least of the favor of God, but it is in the blessing of His favor.  We have so much that is right there for us, but we stop before we receive it.  Receive God’s favor and His blessing today, so that you can be a blessing to others.  If you don’t seem to be in the blessing and favor today, it may be because you just want it all for yourself.  Not going to happen. God will bless you only so that you can be a blessing to others.

Heads Up

Could you use a blessing today? Has it been a long time since you caught a break? Wondering when it’s going to be your day? 

We all get caught in a rut from time to time.  There are times when nothing seems like it is going our way.  The line; ‘I can’t win for losing,’ often times comes up during these stretches of time.  Your day is coming. You are not down, but getting up.  We can’t just wait for our break to come, but we have to prepare for it.  The opportunity of a lifetime must be taken during the lifetime of the opportunity.  If you have your head down you will miss the signs pointing to your breakthrough.  Be ready today for your break and blessing.  Your best day is just around the corner. Heads up for the greatest day of your life!

Get Pumped Up

No matter what is happening in your life today, you have a reason to be excited about your future! If things seem dark right now, know that the dawn will soon appear. 

The key is you have to remember that you are not here by accident. You have a purpose and destiny to fulfill, and God isn’t finished with you yet. Your best days are not behind you; your best days are out in front of you. He has greater things in store for your future than you have experienced in your past. His dream for your future is so much bigger than your own. He wants to take you places that you’ve never dreamed and open up doors that you’ve never imagined. He wants to bring talent out of you that you didn’t even know you had. He wants to increase you and cause you to be a greater blessing to the people around you.Today, get your hopes up and get excited about your future! Begin to thank Him for what He has in store. Keep standing, keep believing and keep moving forward because God has explosive blessings in store for you!

Speak It

A blessing is not a blessing until it is spoken. Who’s life are you blessing today by speaking a blessing over them?

You may be surprised how many people’s lives you affect each day.  You are either speaking a blessing or a curse over them every time you talk to them.  I ask you again; who’s life are you blessing today with your words?  It can be your spouse, your children, your parents, your best friend or the people you work with.  Take into account each day the words that you speak over people.  You are either blessing or cursing them.  Make it a point to speak blessings into people.  There is enough negative talk going on around us each day, be a difference maker.  I speak blessings into your life every day. I speak health, security, hope, forgiveness, encouragement into your life right now.  I speak the power of love to you.  Make a difference in someone’s life today by speaking the blessing into them.

Weeds to Flowers

You have probably heard the phrase; bloom where you are planted.  A great concept but not so easy to live it.

Many people wake up, look around and wonder how did I get here in life? Is this all there is to my life? What have I accomplished in my years on this earth? The answers to these questions may not be what we want to hear.  However, that doesn’t mean that we have to continue to live our life with those answers.  When we learn that God has us right where we are supposed to be; then we can start to bloom.  We may have made some wrong decisions that has us where we are, but you know what; here we are all the same.  Now is the time to begin to turn our weed garden into a beautiful and productive flower garden.  You are not finished. Your life is just beginning. Make the decision today to begin to dig your roots deep and bloom where you have been planted.

Hope Floats

No matter what you may be going through today; never lose hope.  God has got you in the forefront of His mind and will never forget about or let you down.

I have lost a lot of things in my life, but hope has never been of them.  Not to say I haven’t come close at times.  When we lose hope we will begin to go under quickly.  Hope is what keeps us afloat.  There was a popular movie; Hope Floats; hope truly does keep us floating; even during the most difficult days.  Hope will keep you going when that friend turn their back on us, that spouse doesn’t co-operate, that child goes their own way.  Hope is an often overlooked and under-appreciated quality.  Look around today, if you see someone that is going under, offer them hope.  If you are the one going down right now, I offer you hope that will keep you going.  Today is a day of hope for you and for me.

Peace Through Forgiveness

There is someone in your life that needs forgiveness.  It may be your spouse, child, parent or a close friend.  It could even be yourself.

We carry so much unforgiveness around inside of us.  When we carry unforgiveness we are limiting our ability to love.  We can’t love when we haven’t forgiven someone.  Unforgiveness will inhibit our love ability.  Unforgiveness will also add to our stress level which affects our health.  Don’t carry unforgiveness inside you another day.  Forgiveness will bring you the peace and rest that you have been looking for everywhere.  You will expand your love capacity at the same time.  Today is the day of forgiveness.

Forget About It

Are you determined to forget the past? I know many people don’t fully understand what that means. They wonder, “How can I forget something that’s happened to me?” But one definition of the word forget is to disregard intentionally or to overlook. In other words, you have to choose to disregard your past so that it doesn’t hold you back. That means the good and the bad. Sometimes our past victories keep us from rising higher as much as our past failures can. If we don’t let go of the old, we’ll never be able to embrace the new.

It doesn’t matter what’s happened in your past, it’s time to forget what lies behind and make the choice to look forward. Trust that God has a better future in store for you. Trust that He’s working behind the scenes on your behalf. Trust that He who promised is faithful — as you forget what lies behind and press forward, you’ll experience His power and blessing in a fresh, new way.

Bouncing Back

Be your best today, and God will take care of the rest. You may have experienced a setback, but when you live righteously, God will line everything up & help you bounce back.

You may have experienced a recent set back in your life.  There are two things we can do; give up or get up.  Far too many people give up, complain and make excuses when faced with a set back.  However, if you are reading this, you are a person that is not a give upper but a get upper.  God has made a way for you to recover and bounce back from any and everything that has been taking place in your life.  Even when your life looks the worse and you are devastated by all that is going on; know that God is on your side and has a plan for you.  Today is not the day to give up, but it is the day to get up and get started again

Altruism

Secret to long, peaceful, & successful life; practice altruism. Altruism is an unselfish care for, or devotion to, the welfare of others. Help others discover & life their destiny.

There is actual scientific proof that states people live longer, more peaceful and fulfilled lives, when they focus on the success of others.  When we make it a lifestyle to see others reach their destiny; your life will be more fulfilled as well.  I know that my destiny is see others reach their destiny.  Also to inspire, offer hope, encourage and help others get the most out of their life.  As a result, I do have more peace and contentment in my own life.  Today is a great day to inspire someone.  Make it a point today to offer someone hope and encouragement.
