The worst thing you can do in your life is to feel sorry for yourself, to the point of nothingness. Pity parties should only be attended for a moment not a lifetime.
When bad things happen, remember that they cannot over power you. The power they have, is that which you relinquish.
Use your God-given skills, relationships, power and resources to turn a bad thing into a lesson to learn and move on. Yes. Let go off the bad and MOVE ON!
Do not focus on the negatives. Anything you give your attention, will automatically get your focus. Anything that gets your focus, gets your thoughts, words, feelings and emotions. So shift your focus from the problems to the Problem Solver.
Dictate to life. After all life was given to you to be lived. Live your life. Do not let life be lived in for you.
Two weeks ago, I was about to prepare lunch for my family, when I took out a fresh Titus fish from the freezer.
Suddenly my one year five months old daughter who stood by watching, started crying and demanding that I give her the fish to eat. I kept trying to tell her in my own way that the fish was raw, I needed to spice it up, cook it and then take out the bones so it can be ready for consumption, but my toddler wouldn’t hear none of it…she chose to cry louder and even fell to the ground and no one was able to comfort her. I decided to ignore her, went ahead to do what was right and when it was ready, she had her fish and didn’t even remember all the drama she had put up.
But the Holy Spirit ministered to me that this is how many of us cry for a blessing that is not yet ready. God is saying am spicing it up, cooking it and taking out the bones so you don’t get choked. If only my little daughter knew, she would have waited patiently instead of being anxious.
(Phil.4:6) God is saying to someone here that you should be anxious for nothing, Be still and know that I am God I am spicing up that blessing so you will enjoy to the fullest.
Wait on the Lord! (Is.40:31) Like Job said..All the days of my appointed time will I wait till my change comes. (Job 14:14)
Change is coming, Help is on the way.
Just when you believe you will not make it,
Just when you believe all is lost,
Just when you believe there’s no way out,
Just when you believe you’ll be forever alone,
Just when you feel all hope is gone,
Just when you feel there’s no need to try again,
Just when you feel like a failure,
Just when you feel you’re going crazy,
Just when you feel there’s no way out,
Just when you feel like I have failed you,
Just when you feel like you’re imprisoned in bars of darkness,
Just when you feel like light will never be seen again,
Just when you feel like giving up…
YOU WILL FIND ME!
I was ALWAYS there. You were just too busy trying to do it by yourself and for yourself to notice Me.
Now… will you allow Me to do what I do best? The impossible?

Smile at LOVE,
After all, the One who made love,
And is LOVE,
Created you to be loved.
