Some things we have to remember...
The bible is about love don’t forget to display it!
The bible is not offensive we just take offense to it. Things that go against what we want to do will always sting us if we don’t want to hear it. That happens with biblical AND worldly matters.
The bible does not need to be defended. Stop fighting in comment sections on social networks! Speak the WORD. Stop masking your emotional opinions as scripture. That leaves room for contradictions that fall back on God! People know the Christian’s biblical viewpoint on hyper sexuality, dark themes and related material, homosexuality, etc. But they can't see God behind it because of how we share those viewpoints. Stating the truth is
These are just some things I have had to constantly remind myself and other dreamers of in the last few months. So I want to share them with every other dreamer and visionary out there!
1. Do not take on others doubts and fears as your own no matter how often they force them on you.
2. God is and will always be your provider. Stop worrying about what you don’t have.
3. Write the vision and remind yourself of it daily.
4. I’m pretty certain God gave you a scripture or something similar when your vision was sparked. That’s your foundation. Don't ever stop meditating on what it means to you in your today. Everyday!
5. Do whatever you have to do to keep believing in yourself. (Be the consistency you need in your own life)
6. Do your best, that's all God asks for.
7. Work on pleasing God. His standards are already laid out for you and don't change. The scripture says without faith it's impossible to please God [Heb 11:6]. Keep the faith in the vision he gave you, that's pleasing to him!
8. Faith without works is dead [James 2:17]. Let’s put some action behind our beliefs daily.
9. Fear will paralyze your purpose.
10. You're brave and courageous. There are people who wouldn't dare try what you have done. Be grateful that you won't have to live in the land of what if?
11. Whose timeline are you on? I know it's not easy but get off everyone else's and even your own. God's is different. Get on his!
12. It's ok to not know.
13. Tears may fall, let them! Think of it as the fertilizer needed to manifest good fruit, increased faith, and strength.
14. Stay committed and remember, distractions derail dreams.
Remember that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you! [Phil 4:13] Keep dreaming, envisioning, and following thru! We need you!
For most, times of transition can be difficult and take some getting used to whether the transition is big or small something planned or unplanned. I’m still trying to transition from holiday vacation back to entrepreneurial, student, volunteer, ministry, and family life. They all kind of took a break and started back up at the same time. It’s been a bit overwhelming but these are some things I have been telling myself to reduce my anxiety levels. They also promote balance and prevent me from going off on people due to stress =]
I hope they can help you if you start feeling overwhelmed.
1. Don’t disrespect your time
It’s one thing to take breaks and to carve out time for rest. It’s something completely different when you mean to send a quick text and end up scrolling on social networks for an hour!
2. Speaking of rest
We get so caught up in all the responsibilities that we have that we don’t take time for self-care. In all your scheduling and running around don’t forget to make time for something that makes you happy and rest! Hang out with friends, hang out by yourself, ride your bike, take yourself to a movie…do something that doesn’t feel like a to-do reminder. And most of all DON’T FEEL GUILTY ABOUT IT!
3. The word “yes”
Just remember you can’t say yes to everything or everyone!
4. Priorities, get some
Everyday I have a towering list of to-do’s that need to be done. I love lists but sometimes seeing things carry over
Did you buy into the “No New Year’s Resolutions” hype this year? Starting at the end of November and all through December we witness people get disgusted and irritated with those who talk about bettering themselves in the coming year. I mean I get it, some people do use the new year resolution as a procrastination and cop out measure. But is that an excuse for everyone (I use that loosely) to be against New Year goal setting?
Resolution: a formal expression of opinion or intention made…a resolve or determination (to come to a definite or earnest decision about; determine to do something)…the mental state or quality of being resolved or resolute; firmness of purpose. [dictionary.com]
When you look at the word resolution and its various definitions I can’t help but to think…what’s so bad about making them? What’s so bad about setting yourself up to accomplish your goals?
Don’t you have a desire to reach the places that you see in your dreams? (We know that our dreams are short sided and that moving beyond them is something that God has already planned to do) They aren’t going to happen with us screaming “no new year’s resolutions” into the world.
It is my hope that every action I take will be directed towards obtaining my dreams no matter how far fetched they seem. But first I have to have some kind of formal expression or intention, or come to a definite decision in my
