Hey Everyone, Sorry I didn't do a blog last week but I was so busy but I'm back!
What are some of the things we know about gifts? Typically, gifts are free. They usually come from people who like us most of the time and they are valuable. It didn't cost us anything to attain it. Now let's consider for a minute, are we gifts? We? You and I, are we as individuals gifts? Are we valuable? If we give ourselves freely over to others are they better off? Does the recipient feel pleased and excited? Let the record of God show that you are a valuable gift actually priceless.
Do we know we're valuable and try to hide our usefulness as in hide-n-seek or are we clueless to our status? Have we not understood that it is an honor to be used and considered a gift? Are we only seeing the trees and not the forest? Are we only seeing the time and work spent and haven't envisioned the long term effects we'll have on people? We often feel used when we should feel invigorated, inspired, and in anticipation for the reward that will surely come. If we see no reward we should consider our motivate.
Feel freedom, excitement, and joy with the fact that God would gift you so bountifully that everybody wants a piece of you. Don't feel used. In the words of my Apostle, "man can't use you only God can".
What would the world be like if everybody used their God-given gifts freely without restriction?
Until next time.....
In life there will always be weights. Weights of the mind. Weights of the heart. Weights of the body. Weights that come from other people and the list goes on. But if I had to put it in a category of good or bad, I would chose the good side. I believe weights should be working more of an advantage in/and for our lives as opposed to a disadvantage. I also believe that weight should better define who we are and our weight capacity. Where do we max out at? Is there a minimum weight scale that is so light that it is useless and feels pointless? I sometimes feel this way when I'm working out. Some weight are just too light and feels like a waste of my time. It's like I'm lifting air with no resistance. However, if I add maybe 10 lbs I can feel resistance and feel like my body is benefiting from the work-out. In life the weights your carrying should be a benefit to you always. You should not feel better, you should be better.
Weights in life should shapen you mental capacity. When weights arise in any form we should be able to think deeper and more creatively or grab someone to help. Weights should remind us of how awesome we are. Weights will mind us that we can overcome anything. Weights flex our muscles for the next weightier matter.
Now you could focus on the negative but why? It's overrated!
You don't even know your true weight capacity but just keep walking the journey you'll find out!
Until next time,
Don't Say, "No it's Not"
If a lot of people say the same thing about you and they don't know each other, it's true. Why you getting mad, don't you want people to be honest with you? Wouldn't you like more options and opportunities in life? There are probably many people who have passed you by, not because you couldn't do the job because they've seen your work but your character is flawed. Now to you, you can't see it, can't believe, and in your mind it just could not be true, but maybe it is. Most of the time it's based on past experiences, childhood traumas, suppression of traumatic events, and subconscious reactions that have not been dealt with. It's not to harm you but to set you free.
LET THE TRUTH SET YOU FREE
My final thought would be:
Don't take it personal, it's to help you; to let the doors once closed began to open up in every area of your life.
AREN'T YOU DUE FOR AN UPGRADE
P.S. IT IS TRUE AND IT'S OK
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
