I encourage you to figure out what your gifts are. If you don't know how to do that, then just go to the creator. Once you find out what they are walk in them and don't look back. Do it like your life depends on it because it does. I don't know where she got the quote from, but I once heard one of my Christian sisters say, "Your passion will pin you to your purpose, and your purpose to your destiny". God bless each and every one of you spiritually, mentally, socially, physically and financially.

Someone is in a relationship that they feel and know in their heart that is holding them back, but because they "love" the person, or because they don't want to hurt the person's feelings, or because it is easier to stay together, or because breaking up is just so hard... they stay in that cancer of a relationship. LET GO!
Someone has been hurt by people over and over again in life. It seems that every time you give people a chance they find a way to hurt you. You feel like you have, is and will always be in this fight alone. You feel like everyone is out to get you. Now because of that you just can't seem to find joy in any person or situation. LET GO!
Someone has emotional stress from a family member, friend, associate or loved one who died and it seems like they left too soon. It seems as though God wasn't thinking about how it would affect you when He called them home. You wake up everyday and wonder if you will be able to make it through. Nothing keeps you going but the memories you have of them. LET GO!
Someone/anyone/all of us have issues, stresses, events, fears that we face everyday and everyday God gets us through them. Now I'm not saying that it is easier to do, but I'm saying that with God's help and your willingness to move forward you can let go of many of the things that could possibly be holding you back from the next level in life. It is already said in Philippians 4:13 "I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (NIV) So begin to speak that in your life and LET GO!
As always I pray that God blesses each and everyone of you spiritually, socially, physically and financially. All is ask in return is that you pray the same prayer for me. Share Life, Let's Go!

The preceeding is an excerpt from Donald Lawrence's song Encourage yourself. I know that in the times we are living in many people need encouragement. Many people are struggling. Many people are lost. Many people just need a boost. Well I am a firm believer that the best way to encourage yourself is to encourage someone else. I think the most important line in that song is the first sentence of the bridge. "As I minister to you, I minister to myself."
It is so important that we help someone else along our journey and encourage as many people as we can. I promise you that everytime you do it, it makes you feel a little better than what you did when you started. It's almost like it's a relief for you. That's why I encourage. That's why I blog. That's why I share life. It is simply because the more I do for you, the more I help myself. There are many times when I need an encouraging word and the minute I encourage someone through a social media outlet or through some form of communication, it always gives me a boost.
So the next time you're feeling down, just find someone to encourage. The next time your are struggling, find someone to assist. The next time you don't feel like smiling, find someone to make smile. For it is better to give than receive. God Bless!

Can I be the first to suggest that you are not alone in your feelings? However, the bigger questions are what do you do now that you feel that way? Where do you go from here? What's your next step? Who do you turn to? If your car is in park and you want to get out of the driveway, an action must take place. By faith you turn the key and then proceed to put the car in gear. Only then can you get to your destination. So right now, if you feel like any of the aforementioned questions the only way you're going to get from where you are is with action. Now you know you need action, but what action.
There is this awesome guy who said, "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jer 29:11 Go to the source from where all blessings flow. You've been provided with a road map that is the top selling "how to" book of all time. Last I checked, I think it is called the bible. Begin to rebuke those things that are holding you back. The next thing is important... Realize the most powerful name to make things line up. Yeah, you guessed it, it's the guy I mentioned. The name is JESUS! There is power in the name. There is love in the name. There is prosperity in the name. There is hope in the name. There is deliverance in the name. There is life in the name. There is strength in the name. Did I mention there is power in the name?
I don't know your situation. I'm not sure what you're going through. I don't know which one of the beginning questions apply to you, but what I do know is that as long as you have the breath of life in you God is not through with you yet. Begin to establish the strongest foundation possible. No, I'm not talking about concrete. I'm talking about a foundation based upon the word of God and true (eternal) life through Christ. Seek what God's will is for your life. Ask Him to teach you to overcome, teach you to prosper, teach you to witness, teach you to be successful, teach you His ways. Begin with these steps and something has to change. There is nothing too hard for our God. He's delivered you before, and yes He will deliver you again.
Yes, that is what I needed. I was typing to myself the whole time. I don't know if this will speak to anyone, but Lord knows I needed it.

This week is about disobeying God. The problem is many us of don't actually take the time to realize what disobedient actions are. So I think sometimes we just need to stop and say, "Lord teach me right and wrong all over again like I'm a child."
I was tweeting earlier today on the topic Open Your Eyes! I was just wondering if Christians are paying attention to what is going on in the World today. If we don't think that it has spiritual implications then we simply need to Open Our Eyes! So if every religion on the map is coming out stronger than ever and we as Christians are hiding, is that disobedience? If we walk along see someone who looks distressed and hurt and we don't try to witness to them, is that disobedience? If we are around our family, friends, co-workers, etc. who will know are not saved and we don't lead them to Christ, is that disobedience? If we're disrespecting the order of God in and out of Church, is that disobedience? If we are cursing, lying, cheating, stealing, drinking, partying, and any other thing not conducive to the Christian lifestyle, is THAT NOT DISOBEDIENCE?
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God Many people think I'm trying to be all "holier than thou", but I am the first to admit that I am a sinner saved by God's Grace and I'm thankful everyday. I just wish that Christians will stop making excuses for their sin and citing that "God knows my heart." Let's obey at all cost, by any means necessary. Let's come out of the closet since everyone else is, and stop being ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! 1Samuel 15:22 To obey is better than sacrifice!
As always I wish that God will bless you spiritually, mentally, socially, physically and financially.

Many times in life we go through everyday not realizing the full consequences of our actions. We say things that we may not need to say to others. We do things that we probably should not be doing. We talk a little different then what we possibly should be talking. Then when things start happening for the worse in our life, we wonder why. Let me simply suggest that we can not let the devil ride, he will try to drive! If you give him and inch, he's taking a mile. If you crack the door, he's going to bust it open. He's always going to overstay his welcome.
Don't Let The Devil Ride! If you know you have a problem with alcohol, then don't put yourself in places or situations where is alcohol is a focus. If you know that you have the mouth of a sailor, watch what you feed into your gateways(eyes and ears). If you know that you have a problem with lust, fornication or anything else involving the opposite sex then don't flirt or allow them to reel you in. Whatever the problem may be just remember that in James 4:7 it tells us that if we resist the devil he will flee. Just try not to entertain anything negative or against the will of God.
God is able to help us through anything, but we can't keep putting ourself in the same situation that got us in trouble before. We should strive everyday to grow in life and more importantly in Christ. So remember... Don't Let The Devil Ride, He Will Try To Drive! I pray that God blesses each and everyone of you Spiritually, Mentally, Socially, Physically and Financially. Share Life, Let's Go!
