Your Perspective Is Everything

When life throws you a curve ball, your perspective in the midst of the storm will be considerably different from when you obtain your victory afterwards.

Here’s a great quick clip of Pastor Steven Furtick’s take on the matter. It is a great reminder to help us see God’s perspective through the storm and realize there is something bigger coming on the other side of it.

Shake To Wake

Have you noticed things are being shaken these days? From politics and religion to our own family lives, there is nothing being untouched through the hand of our Heavenly Father.

“At that time his voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.”(Hebrews 12:26-27 NIV)

The “why” is critical to understanding the real purpose. Many of us get complacent in our time with God. We get too busy striving to be better, spend more time with family, working ourselves too hard, trying to make more money, getting ahead in life, building better lives and the list goes on and on and on.

Nothing is wrong with those things. God wants us to have nice things, loving families, caring about others and being victorious in life. However it’s when we strive so hard on our own and forget that it is HIM who provides, restores, loves, and gives us the desires of our heart is when things must be shaken for us to return to HIM.

It’s not just on a personal level that is being shaken. Right now we are seeing nations being shaken. America’s politics have become something we’ve never seen before. It’s unprecedented where dividing lines are being thickly drawn, ugly accusations are being thrown and dark versus light is so prevalent.  We are seeing good people being smeared and decimated.

This is the time we must repent for losing sight of our first love…GOD! We must spend our most precious moments with our Heavenly Father. We must pray for all those who are standing with God and pushing God’s Will for America and around the world.

Children of God it is time to raise up, praise up, and worship like never before. Grow deeper in God so He can wake you up to purpose, discernment and place you on an unshakable foundation.

Jesus died to break every curse that could come against us. Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly. Don’t stop pushing forward. We are called for such a time as this! Return unto Him and He will return unto us. Don’t let this critical time pass you by. We are needed to make a difference. Every vote counts. Every person you can impact today counts. Every moment you spend with Jesus counts. It’s time for action! Are you ready?

The Balancing Act

StressedOutFaceYou’re running here, running there, got to do this, got to do that…ever feel like you’re getting no where fast? Have you ever gotten to the end of the day saying “where the heck did that day go”? Ever just want to throw your hands up and say I quit? Ever feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders that just seems to keep growing bigger? Ever try harder only to find yourself getting less accomplished? I know I sure have.

Well, today I’m here to tell you…there is amazing news to help you get back on track. God created the earth, the seasons, harvests, festivals, the sun, moon, and time. More importantly, God created you and your purpose in life. There is absolutely nothing that goes by without God knowing it first, since He knows the end from the beginning.

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.” ~ Genesis 1:14

It is so easy to get discouraged. The harder and quicker you work, it seems like the “To Do List” never gets smaller. What we really need to realize is that God is in charge. We can be so busy that we actually never get anything done. What we really need to ask ourselves is…is it just busy work or is it really important in the big scheme of things? When we have such heavy loads every day, we are going to find ourselves worn out, stressed out, and just plain ol’ tired. Then we’ll find ourselves moving towards frustration and sickness because we just don’t have anything left to ward off the negative feelings and the sickness.

Sometimes I wonder to myself, if I really got everything done on my “To Do List” today, would it really matter. And guess what…the answer is usually “NO”. We love to make lists and feel the sense of accomplishment and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, does it really matter if the laundry doesn’t get done today? Does it really matter if you didn’t bake that cake or a homemade meal today? Does it really matter if you rescheduled your appointment? Does it really matter if you didn’t respond to all those incoming emails and phone calls till tomorrow? We tend to make everything a priority that simply may not be a priority at all.

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit” – yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” ~ James 4:13-15

When you find yourself with a crazy scheduling day ahead of you, take a moment and ask yourself, does it really matter. Would my world as I know it really come to an end if I didn’t get all these things done today? We all need balance in our lives and we can trust God to help us balance it out. When you make Him your top priority, each and every day, He will help you get things done quicker, easier and less stressful.

God cares about you and can stop time for you. All you have to do is ask! Ask for the wisdom to determine what is truly important. Ask Him to help you get everything done today. Ask Him for a good night’s sleep. Ask Him to help balance your life out. For when you do, you will have enough time for all the things in your life. God can take 3 hours of sleep and wake you up feeling more refreshed than if you had 8 hours of sleep. God can stop or reverse time if He wants to.

So just remember…when you put first things first, everything else will fall into place.

You will be happier, healthier, and less stressful every step of the way.

Have a wonderful and relaxing day today! God, time and balance is truly on your side!
