“Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”(Psalm 37:4, ESV)

That word “delight” actually means “to make soft and pliable.” It gives the picture of clay in the hands of the Potter. God wants us to be flexible with Him and allow Him to mold us and make us into His image. That’s when He can use you and that’s when He will give you the desires of your heart!

I hope you enjoy and share this as it was shared with me.

God Bless & have FAITH in all you do!

Nothing Wasted

“After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, ‘Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.’ ”(John 6:12, NLT)

God is still in the miracle-working business. He is still our Creator and He is a Restorer. If you’ve felt like you’ve wasted years of your life in the wrong job, hanging around the wrong people, doing the wrong things, God will gather those years and restore them back to you. He’ll take those experiences that the enemy meant for your harm, and He’ll turn them around for your good. He’ll make you stronger, wiser, and better off than you were before. He can launch you further into your destiny than before. Be encouraged today because with God all things are possible and nothing is ever wasted!

I hope this encorages you as it has me. May you continue to strive for your goals and dreams ….. have FAITH in ALL you do!

Still Standing

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” (Psalm 40:2, NIV)

All of us can look back at things that should have defeated us. Maybe a divorce or bad break should have taken you down, but look — you’re still standing! That addiction that partying lifestyle should have killed you, but because of a praying loved one, you’re still standing and becoming freer. Or, maybe you lost a loved one. You didn’t think you could go on. You thought you’d seen your best days, but God breathed new life into you. He lifted you out of the pit and put a new song in your heart, and here you are today, still standing.

The message above was sent to me, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

                         Move Forward

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18–19, ESV)

Move forward and you’ll come into a new beginning. Nothing that has happened to you is a surprise to God. The loss of that loved one didn’t catch God off guard. The business that didn’t make it, the relationship that didn’t work out did not stop God’s plan for your life.
Now, the real question is: are you going to get stuck, fall into self-pity, become bitter, let the past poison your future? Or, are you going to shake it off and move forward knowing that your best days are still up ahead?

I am uncertain who wrote this but I wanted to share this and encourage you as it has encouraged me.

May today be great and tomorrow even greater!

PrintMany of us watch or have participated in sports; they are entertaining, fun, exhilarating, competitive and challenging. If you have ever experienced coaching, there is nothing more exciting than seeing your team execute a play in a game situation, exactly as you have diagramed it or practiced over and over again. As a member of a team, there is nothing like working together to win a hard fought competition. Sports are analogous to life; all of us have experienced the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. But lack of persistence and the decision to give up after a defeat, is what separates winners and losers in life. In our day to day struggles we can’t win everything, but we sure can try. Orison Marden tells us that there are the wills, won’ts, and the can’ts. The first accomplish everything, the second oppose everything; the third fail everything. Which one are you….are you a “Game Changer?”

There are moments in competitive sports when the game is tight, seconds are ticking away and the final outcome depends on a decision that can change the course of the game. It could be a specially designed play, an extraordinary performance or a poor decision. Regardless of who or what it is, it’s considered a game changing situation.

God has given us extraordinary talents with the ability to achieve miraculous and unbelievable accomplishments. He is an example and the embodiment of the ultimate game changer and has left us, within His lessons, the blueprint for success. In our daily lives we can change our circumstances and influence others. Author Dennis Kimbro tells us that the world waits and takes notice of exceptional people who can separate themselves from the crowd and do things in a creative and exciting way. The world is searching for and craves aggressive and progressive leaders that identify with success and can show others how to attain it. Those successful leaders that I speak of are “Game Changers.”
Success glassTo be a game changer there are a number of qualities you must possess but one of them is persistence. Calvin Coolidge once said;

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unregarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

Are you a……”Game Changer?”
You are a…….”Game Changer!”
