Inspirational Friday

Happy Friday to everyone. Do you oftentimes find yourself being anxious about something? I find it funny that my oldest daughter is such a worrisome little girl. I wondered “well, where does she get that from?” Silly me!!! She gets it from who else?!? DUH! ME! Me… the woman who is always worried about situations, always worried about others, always worried in general. I’ve gotten better over time through my faith in God; I’ve come to realize, if we constantly spend time and energy worrying about what may never happen, we will miss the goodness of life. We’ll miss the sunlight, we’ll miss the laughter, and we’ll miss those amazing little moments where memories are created. In the times you worry in life, where you spend your energy anxious, you leave no room for faith. Leave your worries to Him, so that you can make room in your heart for His amazing blessings. Lean not on your own understanding, stop being selfish for what you want in life; God has a perfect plan for you, but you must realize it may not be what you had in mind, what you wished for, or what you expect for yourself. One day you’ll look back and realize as you were so stubborn to accept His plan for you, it was the best thing for you. Having said this… don’t spend time worrying about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matt 6:34, YOU can do all things through HIM who gives you strength.(Phil 4:13); Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength…(Isaiah 40:31); For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of LOVE, POWER, and of a SOUND mind. (2 Timothy 1:7). Have faith, and Fear not, for He is with you, He is your God, He will strengthen you. He will help you. He will uphold you with His righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10). I can quote scripture upon scripture upon scripture, but His word is truth. He is our refuge; he is our strength, and ever-present help in trouble. When you are afraid, put your trust in Him. Be strong, be courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified of anything that may or may not come to you. Because He is with you every step of the way. He will never leave you and he will never forsake you. Do not be anxious, but in everything and every situation, come to Him with thanksgiving and praise, present your requests to Him through prayer. Prayer is such a powerful thing. (James 5:13-18) You don’t have to pay for it. It’s here, it’s everywhere and it’s free. You don’t have to be on your knees every time you pray. That notion is silly. But remember, when you do pray, Pour out your heart, Realize God will answer, Always believe, and last but never least, Yield to what God says. Remember, He cares for you and His way is perfect. His word is flawless. (2 Samuel 22:31) In His Hands, Dee

Where does your passion lie?

FIND IT! BE IT! DO IT!

 

know-your-passion

I don’t think I’ve ever shared my passion with a lot of people. Amongst so many things including the love of people and the love of life, I have a deep passion to counsel others. There was once a time in my life where I was being pressed to follow a career path that I was not happy with. As I spent a couple years in school preparing myself for this career, God kept speaking to me. It was during my Communications class, as I aced every single test, and every single report and task was not even work for me, that I realized I was meant to spend my entire life helping others. During my oral final, my teacher was astounded by what came from my mouth. She said, if you don’t know what it is that you need to do, you’ve just found it. If I could spend the rest of my life counseling people, being a life coach, relationship counselor, etc., I would work for free and be the happiest person on this Earth. Where do you see yourself down the line? Where is it that your passion lies? I see myself gracing stages speaking inspiration and life to people. I see myself having one on one therapy sessions with people. I see myself speaking to masses of people coaching them on life. I see myself being used by God in every which way possible to further his work. I see myself sharing this vibrant life with others so that they see the abundant blessings God has for them. Wake up, people. Find what it is you LOVE to do and GO DO IT!

Once you find your passion, you will NEVER work another day in your life.

In His Hands,

Dee
