Perfectly imperfect

God has never required that we be perfect in order for Him to use us to uplift, inspire, & encourage others. Human “better than, less than” stinkin thinkin is responsible for that. Don’t let anybody ever convince you that you were not created with purpose.

Pray for caregivers

Don’t forget to add caregivers to your prayer list. They go through more than they’d ever tell you. So if you know somebody that cares for another, make sure you pray for their health & strength! ❤️

#WednesdayWisdom How you livin?

Conduct Matters.

How we behave on and off social media and how we treat others will preach a louder sermon then our lips ever will.

The price of understanding

‪I have come to understand you can be in one of two places about things in life. You can have no understanding at all and draw your own conclusions about things or if God gives you understanding, that comes with the responsibility to handle it correctly and not let it make you bitter, angry, or resentful.

They say ignorance is bliss. I guess that’s because when you are given the gift of understanding it comes with the price of responsibility.

The drought

Experiencing a drought in your life isn’t always the devil. Sometimes God allows you to be cut off from what you have become dependent upon as your supply (job, relationships, people), so you can rely on the supplier and be aligned to receive what’s already scheduled to be released to you, but exactly at the moment and point of time He has already pre-scheduled. God’s ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts. He has ways of teaching us valuable lessons in unusual ways. I can honestly say having a lot of money didn’t form my character, being broke did. I value honest friends because I’ve been betrayed. I appreciate genuine affection because I’ve been abused. Having a weekly paycheck didn’t teach me to walk by faith, loosing my job did.

Ya’ll don’t hear me tho *shrug* 😉

His ways are not our ways

I so love this. Sometimes we miss the answer because it didn’t come the way we thought it should. I’m just thankful I know Him. Have a blessed Sunday folks.

Be Encouraged!

Love this! Be encouraged folks, greatness never emerged from a comfort zone!

Boundaries

I think it’s fair to say that most people aren’t ever taught the importance of having personal boundaries. Proper parenting involves setting limits (rules) for children, school and the workplace have policies and rules but unfortunately the average person doesn’t learn about personal boundaries until they’ve been hurt by not having any.

Self preservation is not selfish. It is very important to have an inner confidence (sense or knowing) of what is okay and not okay when it comes to ourselves. Having healthy boundaries is learning how to own our personal “yes” and own our personal “no”.

Boundaries look different depending upon what kind it is.

You may have a work boundary and decide that Saturday is family day and you are not doing any work related things on a Saturday, period. You may have a personal communication boundary that if someone is hostile or swearing, you will not participate in the discussion until the tone of voice and language can be respectful.

It doesn’t happen overnight, but take sometime to think about all the areas you have in your life and what the limits are. Do you even have limits or do you just go with the flow even when the flow is trying to drown you? Have the courage and strength to see yourself as the valuable creation God created you to be. Have confidence in your worth and know deep down on the inside that you are worthy of being treated with dignity and respect.

Success: Not everyone will support you, deal with it.

Have you ever seen Oprah, Martha Stewart, Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs, or Bill Gates whine by meme all over social media about who’s supporting them? Of course not, that’s not something successful minded people waste time doing. If you find yourself angered enough to publicly address it? You’re not winning. How are you going to grow into a billion dollar CEO if you can’t even control your emotions on the internet? Think about it….
