You’re Amazing

With a new year upon us, many have vowed their New Year’s resolutions. They want to workout more, eat healthier, lose weight, quit an addiction and just become a better person than they are now. And with most of us, those are great things to accomplish yet many fail within a very short period of time.

Let this year be different. Don’t make your “to do” lists only to begin feeling overwhelmed and frustrated because you ate a donut. See yourself differently this year and place God first in your life. Let Him help you make whatever changes He feels is in your best interests.

specialYou are very special to God. He sees you as worthy through the blood of the lamb. You are a winner. You are amazing and beautiful. You are unique and special. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) You are the apple of His eye. (Psalm 17:8) You are His treasured possession. (Deut. 7:6)

It’s time to stop comparing yourself to others or looking in the mirror wishing this or that was different. It’s time for you to see yourself through God’s eyes. You are His walking masterpiece, a rare find that is filled with His amazing light and love. There is nothing you can’t do as you keep your eyes upon the Lord. He doesn’t want you feeling defeated, He wants you soaring like an eagle with your talents He gave you.

Don’t let another year go by without seeing His love for you. Let go of your past pain, hurt, anger, frustration, rejection and suffering. Let go of all the things you’d like to change about yourself. You are wonderfully made and there’s noone like you. You have special gifts that God has placed inside of you. He wants to burst forth those gifts and see you excel like never before.

God can and will restore all of those things that have been lost and change whatever needs to change. (Joel 2:25) Let this year be your amazing turnaround. Let this year be filled with lots of light and love. Give Him your cares and worries. Don’t let one more day hold you down with defeat or self-worthlessness. You are an amazing person. So be bold, confident, brave, and free!

Reflect on His love for you and everything else will turn out alright. You’re loved beyond your wildest imagination and there’s nothing too difficult for your Heavenly Father. He is right there with you in the midst of any battle or storm. Reach out and see how beautiful you truly are! It’s time to shine and let your amazing gifts burst forth! May this year be your year of transformation and restoration.  You will accomplish more in a day than you thought possible.

Receive it! Believe it! And walk in it!

Let this year be the year you shine like fireworks in the night sky. (Philippians 2:15)

Be You

Everyone of us has a purpose in the Kingdom of God. Whether you are called to be a teacher, writer, preacher, a bible study host, singer, scientist, doctor, janitor, a stay-at-home parent, an encourager, someone who smiles, or anything in between, we are all called according to His purpose. We may not know exactly what our calling is but we can rest assured that when God calls upon us, He will have already equipped us to become that special person for the Kingdom.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,
plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Each one of us is uniquely made. We are to be special and not like each other. Every single one of us are to become the person God wants us to be. Then together, we all uniquely fit into God’s bigger picture.

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus
to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Just because we see someone excelling doesn’t mean we need to try to be like them. We were never to be like someone else. God has given you a special calling and a creative talent that no one else has. When we try to be like someone else, we are actually attempting to be something we are not called to be which only leads to failure and frustration.

Our purpose is the very meaning of our existence and a distinct impact on the world around us. It’s very easy to look at others and think they have what you want, they are making a difference when you feel you don’t, they have a life you would like, they look how you wish you looked, and the list goes on. Never feel like your life doesn’t matter because it does. Say it with me, “MY LIFE MATTERS!”

Whether you realize it or not, your life is making an impact. People are always comparing themselves and watching from a distance. How you react to situations, what you say, how you say it, what you do…all these things impact those around you. Each one of us have a meaningful mission in life. Be yourself and let God’s mighty hand work within you. Be your unique you. There is no other person like you. There is no other person who can do the special mission God has just for you. Reach out and know your maker. He will guide you, help you and lead you on the path only you can take.

Be strong and press on. God’s plans and ways are higher than we can ever imagine. Everything you have gone through will not go to waste. Your testimony of God’s goodness, favor, restoration and healing power just might be the very thing that touches someone’s life and lead them to the one and only true God. As it is written in Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Don’t give up now, you are closer to your breakthrough than you think. The smallest acts of kindness can make a huge impact. YOU ARE SPECIAL AND YOUR LIFE MATTERS!

What’s Love Got To Do With It

Have you ever noticed how much we are bombarded with commercials showing what the world thinks about love? Buy this product and she’ll love you. Or buy that product and she’ll love you. The world likes to portray love as you do this and they’ll do that. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. This isn’t love!

At one point in life or another, most of us have tried to “buy” love or looked for love in all the wrong places. We get excited when we meet someone and we’ll do anything to show them we care. But then slowly it begins to fade and the deep void within begins to grow bigger until you realize something is missing. Now, I’m not saying that doing or buying nice things is bad. What I’m saying is that if you had a void before love and you still have a void when you are in love then there is something deeper going on and no matter how many gifts you purchase; none of them will be fulfilling.

Most people think that if they find a mate, life will be perfect. Or they think, if only I had more money, I would feel happier. Nothing could be further from the truth. For we can not expect someone or something to make us happy. If we are unhappy with ourselves, then how could they possibly make us happy. It just isn’t possible and we are setting them and ourselves up for failure.

Let’s take a cat or dog, for an example. Say you have been gone all day long. You open the door to find that loving pet excited to see you. Whether they are jumping up and down or jumping into your lap, they trusted you to come home and they are excited to show you how much they love and missed you. It is completely unconditional. They are just happy to see you, without getting anything in return.

Well, that is how God loves us. We can’t earn God’s love nor do we deserve it. He just simply loves us! It is unconditional. (Ephesians 3:14-19)  He doesn’t care if we are short, tall, black, white, brown, overweight, skinny or have pimples. He loves us RIGHT NOW, NO MATTER WHAT!

We can’t truly love until we feel loved ourselves. We need to learn that God loves us. We need to feel that God loves us. We have to have a deep knowing that we are loved and it doesn’t matter what we say or do! Otherwise, we are just spinning our wheels getting nowhere because no one else could possibly fill the void but God!

God Loves You 2

When we start experiencing this type of love, then and only then, can we possibly begin showing love for others. This kind of love doesn’t depend on if the person deserves our love or not, nor does it depend on what gifts they will give us. We simply realize that God loves us and He loves them too. When you start loving this way, nothing and I do mean nothing can take the place of it. THIS IS TRUE LOVE!

You are a one-of-a-kind person. God made you and sent His Amazing Son to die for you. No one is like you. So why don’t you start seeing just how special you truly are and love yourself as God loves you. Once you do, you’ll begin to experience the most incredible, amazing, loving relationships that you desperately crave! And the best part is you won’t have to go looking for it. God will bring it to you at the right place, at the right time, and at the perfect moment! It will be simply PERFECT!

Cherish Your Mother

Mother’s are very special in God’s eyes and should be honored in all her ways. Whether your mother is with you, across the miles from you, or in heaven…remember them on this day and let them know just how special they truly are.

Matthew 15:4: “For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother…”
Proverbs 31:25-30: “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.””
