WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO SAY YES OR NO TO?

Choices, we just love them and whenever we feel our choices are impeded in some way we protest. One of the primary reasons buffet type restaurants are so popular is because the customer gets to choose. Big box stores are also a staple because there's a barrage of offerings that lead to choices. In our bible study group last Sunday, the author of a book we are using for guided discussion made a prolific statement regarding musical virtuosos and Olympic athletes: "they must say no to a thousand things in order to say yes to the destiny that lies before them." Our study group parlayed over that statement for several minutes. As we extrapolated and dissected aspects of our lives we realized things we said NO to determined what we had a choice to say YES to.


Now I am admittedly like Forrest Gump I want to do it all. However, even in my wanting to do it it all, I must still say NO to someone or something. What lies before you? Could you have more choices if you turned off your brain chatter or the soundtracks of those you've placed in your inner circle? Do you even recognize your current choices? Could you be serving as a blockade to you own destiny [predetermined fate ]?


Our world has many choices and many voices; so the question goes forth: What Are You Willing To Say YES or NO To? The choice ultimately is always yours.

I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE

It is so easy to get lost inside of our minds and believe things about ourselves that are untrue. Sometimes we have to step back and consult with the ultimate authority regarding our importance and significance to the Creator of the Universe.  Psalm 139:1-18 O  Lord , you have examined my heart   and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up.You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it,  Lord . You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,   too great for me to understand!   I can never escape from your Spirit. I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning   if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength w

I AM AFFIRMATIONS

Life is beautiful! However life can also be difficult and hard. It is so easy to allow tragedies, disappointments and setbacks to get in our way. Thereby sullying God's sacred posture in our human experience. When Moses had an encounter with God and questioned how he was to identify or describe God to the children of Israel. God replied to Moses: "I Am Who I Am. Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you." Mirror work has been used for eons to bring people into alignment with their purpose, destiny, and calling. Instead of reciting traditional positive affirmations let's use scripture for backup. Stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself •I am God’s child for I am born again of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God which lives and abides forever 1 Pet. 1:23 •I am forgiven all my sins and washed in the blood Eph. 1:7 •I am a new creature II Cor. 5:17 •I am the temple of the Holy Spirit I Cor. 6:19 •I am delivered from the power

THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND

Today is my sister's birthday. She indeed is my best friend. We have so many memories and regularly share laughs. She is and has always been a blessing to our family. Her love has no boundaries. She is a peaceful and calm person. She loves black and white movies, musicals, broadway plays, baking and working in her art studio. The Golden Girls was one of my favorite TV sitcoms. Actually the theme song drew me to the show. "Thank you for being a friend Traveled down the road and back again Your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant. And if you threw a party Invited everyone you knew You would see the biggest gift would be from me And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend." Happy Birthday Sis! source: http://www.lyricsondemand.com/tvthemes/goldengirlslyrics.html
