Take the Lid Off

Take the Lid Off

Have you ever wondered what’s stopping you? I mean really sat down and asked yourself, “Why am I still thinking about my dreams but not pursuing them?” If you are anything like me, I’m sure you have. Of course you have made some headway and of course you aren’t where you used to be but somewhere down the line you stopped dreaming and daring to be great. Maybe you became a husband or wife or even a parent and life started to look a lot different. Maybe you finally landed that dream job, only to find that it wasn’t your dream at all. You searched and searched but eventually became tired of looking and settled. You allowed all of your dreams to stay inside the “Jar of Impossibilities”. However, on the inside you knew that you were keeping a lid on your gifts and abilities. Deep down you could sense the feeling of discontentment but you managed to ignore it. That is, until now. It’s a New Year and though many people will declare that the New Year does not change anything, the truth is, it has the ability to change everything. Just think if we treated the growth of children in the same way we do a New Year. In fact, if a child stayed the same from age 5 to age 16 we would classify that as a disability. This is said to be true in our lives as well. If we remain at the same stage at age 18 as 32, something has taken place that has crippled us, stunting our growth. We were created to grow, to change,...
STOP MOURNING

STOP MOURNING

    Today I would like to take a moment and encourage you & bless you in the season that you are currently in. Often times we forget that God has far more greater things for us than what we could imagine. As a result of losing sight of that we become discouraged and begin to long for the things we’ve lost. However, when we begin to embrace the season that we are in and the ways in which God desires to expand our capacity, we then begin to understand His Plan.   It is my hope and prayer that you never lose sight of what you are walking into by being stuck in where you were! When this happens we allow ourselves be robbed of the joy that comes in embracing your “right now”. Move forward my brother and my sister, letting nothing hinder you from your future. Look up because all of your help comes from above. It doesn’t matter who has left, what was said, or even what you’ve done. What matters is the here and now and your complete surrender to the plan of God.   You best days are not behind you. Your best days are here. You are not next in line, It is Your Turn Right Now! Move Forward and Rejoice where you are!   Celebrate the Season you are in Look forward to the future Trust God in the process  Embrace everything that God sends your way All you have is right now, so don’t allow your yesterday to rob you of the Joy that God wants to give you...
A Key to Forgiveness by Alexis McMordie

A Key to Forgiveness by Alexis McMordie

A Key to Forgiveness Last week I learned something that really touched my life tremendously and I would love to share it with you. It is a great lesson to be learned and I strongly believe that all need to hear it! Whether it be forgiving yourself or forgiving someone, we forgive them for what they did to us or what we’ve done to ourselves; that’s what forgiving is but there is a key part that we are leaving out. When you forgive someone you must stop, drop, and run. It’s a process that we leave out day to day called forgiveness. An example being; when someone goes to talk about someone behind their back, you must stop. Politely tell them to stop talking about them. No matter how tempting. Self control is important. Next is drop; forget what that person did or tempted you to do. This is not always easy but you can do it for God. In Mark chapter 11 verse 25 it states, “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” Let it drop. Let go of what is stopping you from being forgiven. You are in control of your mind, nothing else; therefore take charge of it. After you stop, and drop; last is run. Run from not fully forgiving or accepting someone’s forgiveness. Satan wants you to fall into his trap! DON’T fall for it. You are so much better than that! When Satan sees that he has lost, he dies inside. There is power in healing....
The One

The One

As I sit at my desk contemplating all of the amazing things that have been given, I come to the conclusion that though I am not married; I do have a KING. Life has brought various twists and turns that I am sure, you also can attest to. However, when looking over every experience, pit fall, and short coming; one must come to the realization that in the season of “Single-ness” there is a King that sits on the throne of your heart and desires to keep you hidden until it’s your time. In being single myself, I would like to take a moment and share some key tools of fulfillment for you as a single by choice, maybe because of divorce, or even death. Are you ready? Here we go! “You have been found by the One, because you are the One He’s been looking for”. Elements of Joys as a Single Person Your life does not start or end with a person…It starts when you realize that there are people in this world who could benefit greatly from your presence and it ends the moment your forget that your life makes a DIFFERENCE! There are things that you have access to that you have not used, so don’t be concerned with what you don’t have…Look at all you do, that you haven’t used yet! There is so much in your hands!  Take times to sit back and appreciate all that God is doing in your life, instead of focusing on all of the things that He has not done. Live Each day for what it is, not for...

I see the Cake but Where is the Song

I see the Cake but Where is the Song

  Today is the day we celebrate the birth of the greatest man that ever lived, Jesus the Christ. We enjoy our families, we open our gifts, we welcome “Him” to the festivities but we never come around to singing “His Song”. You know, the song that keeps your life going in a forward direction. The song that reminds you that life is not about you but indeed all about Him. The song that celebrates our reason for life. This song, is the one that is seen and not always heard. This song is displayed by our lives. We all have desires and we all have things that motivate us to do what we do, but if we are presenting the “cake” which is our lives but not actually giving it to God, which is the “song” then when we will always have a missing ingredient to the celebration that awaits. This week’s inspiration is about leaving nothing out that belongs to the King! The three wise men came to “Baby Jesus” presenting gifts. Their gifts were not an identifying factor of who he was in the moment (baby) but who he was called to be (King) from birth. That’s amazing! You see in many ways there are parallels between what Jesus was born to do and what we have access to as well. From the beginning of Jesus’ life, he was a threat and on the top of King Herod’s hit list. As a baby, could Jesus do much? No, as an infant was he actually a threat? No! But you see,  King Herod was not concerned  with...
