Today is Good Friday – the day that Jesus was crucified. Many churches have been reflecting on the crucifixion during Passion Week. My Facebook feed has been full of posts about the last seven sayings of Christ. I even had to craft content for my job around this topic. One of the sayings really stuck out to me and I wanted to dissect it a bit though. The final thing Jesus said while on the cross was “into Your hands, I commit my spirit” (Luke 23:46) Read More →
Some of you behind-the-scenes types love getting stuff done and helping. You don’t dig the limelight, however if you have a vision that burns in your heart to get out there, you are going to HAVE to deal with the glare of the spotlight. You have to lead the way, be seen and be heard. You have to raise your profile. Read More →
As I’ve sat here thinking about what to write about this week, I drew a blank. I didn’t have much to talk about as the most monumental thing that has happened to me recently was already recounted in my last entry. Then, seemingly out of nowhere I heard “restoration.” So that’s what I will dissect today.
Restoration is the act of returning something to a former owner, place, or condition. It presumes that something was out of place, distorted or mishandled and needed to be brought back to its rightful place. When I look at my life in its current state and all of the miracles that are taking place, I have to say I am in a season of restoration. Everywhere I turn, it is confirmed to me too. Read More →
I now know God differently. I know a new side of Him. I can testify about it. Revelation 12:11 says we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. So here I am to share my testimony with you because I am an overcomer. If you want some juicy scoop about me, here, I’m dishing. Read on…
to stop feeling anger toward (someone who has done something wrong)
to stop blaming (someone)
to stop feeling anger about (something)
to stop requiring payment of (a debt that is owed)
Forgiveness is a tough subject to address. To properly deal with it requires drudging up old feelings, confronting ourselves (and others) with painful truths that have been buried. It can be like pulling the scab off of a wound and pouring salt in it. Painful. Something we’d rather not think about and pretend to have moved on. But what happens when the stain of not forgiving manifests itself in seemingly unrelated areas of your life? How do you reconcile past hurts, forgive yourself, and continue to follow God’s command to love others as yourself?
When an artist makes that decision that they want to make a masterpiece they automatically commit the time and patience it takes to create it. Out of that discipline comes something beautiful. What is keeping you from deciding to create a masterpiece, something beautiful out of that discipline that is required from you by God to obtain your position in purpose?
Now that that is out of the way, I want to ask you. How petty are you?
When our unbelief that God will handle things take over, it becomes impossible to walk the full path of our destiny amidst the storms. If you believe in God yet not have the belief that He is fully capable of resolving the issues in our lives, how can you project out of your mouth that you are a woman or man of faith? Without relinquishing full control to the Father that created you, faith OF Him existing without faith IN Him, will cause you to lose in life. Without Faith, you will not win.
I was scrolling Instagram looking for inspiration for my next blog post and TWICE in a row on my newsfeed the above quote from Myleik Teele, founder of Curlbox, popped up. I wanted to write about my departure from my job. Wednesday was my last day in the office although technically today was my last day. I needed to get it out of my system because it stung. And this quote made the difference.
How we leave a thing lets us know more about ourselves than how we enter a thing. How did you leave your last relationship and job? Goodbyes are just as important as the hello’s in our lives. First impressions mean a lot but last impressions are everything.
