Be Renewed

As you emerge from this Lenten season I pray that you emerge renewed, rejuvenated, restored, all from spending time with Jesus. Start now. Hear from Holy Spirit, receive your blessing in even that.  Don't worry about what is going on in another's life.  Watch what God is doing in your life. 

You are a blessing. Walk in that major realization. Peace. enough for now.

Are You Listening?

Did you know that it does not take much to hear? You have to want to hear.  You have to listen.  There is more. You have to recognize and trust that you have heard.  And then you rest in what you hear, you follow what you hear.  There is a great peace in following Holy Spirit's guide for your life.  There is peace in watching what God is doing in your life.  No, you don't sit and do nothing.  Yes you release fret and fear while you watch.  You see, you shift your focus from you and your stuff to wtching what God is doing.  

You need some peace in your life in spite of all the junk.  You need peace in spite of the foolishness at your job, your school, your church, your home.  Shift your focus and start watching.  When your start watching you can begin listening.  It does not take that much to hear.  It does take a willing heart. Go ahead, try God.  enough for now.

Stop Running Around

Watch!  Stop running around like a chicken with your head cut off.  Even if that running around is only in your head, and usually it is in your head. Get still and watch what God is doing in your life, this day.  And then when you get clear instruction from Holy Spirit- go with it.  Follow.  Rest in that guidance. enough for now.

TODAY

TODAY. TODAY. TO DAY. T O D A Y. TODAY. Today. today.  Today is your day- your day.  It has already been promised to you. The red carpet has been laid out for your.  It is yours no matter what comes.  Ups or downs - it is yours.  Take it, walk it, allow each aspect of it to sink in- soak it up. There are gems for you to collect- today. Watch for them.  There are gems for you to give away. Watch for the opportunities. Today.

Things will happen- it is how you let those things affect you that matters.  It is how you feel about happens. How do you feel about what I just said?  What do you feel about today?  Let me help to get you going.  If there is fear about today, that is a lie from the pit of hell. You see, "God did not give us a spirit of timidity (fear), but a spirit of power, love, and self-discipline (sound mind)" (2 Tim. 1:7 NIV). Let that be your joy today.  And say "no" to anything less than what God has given.  Shift your focus toward what God has for you and not what society has done to you.

This is your day- Seize each moment and live. enough for now.

No More.

No more.  Today I stop fitting into what others want for me. No more. Today I start living what God has for me. 

Let that be your mantra each day until you recognize that you are walking away from the people pleasing and walking into the Image of who you really are. TODAY is your day. Enough for now.

No Box

Look within.  Look at how you have allow yourself to be trapped in a box so large that you didn't know you were trapped.  Ahh, but when you came to the border of the box you found yourself stuck by the same lies that you dealt with long ago.  Nothing changed.  Stuck.  You know you those lies - fear, feeling inferior, no one cares. . . what's your lie?  You see, the borders are not real.  You were not created to live in a box, but to free from the lies that plague. 

Have you recognized the lies yet?  You see, you have lived so long with them that you were comfortable in your 'plight'.  It would never get better.  You draw of the luck. LIES. LIES.  Come on.  When you recognize a lie, write it down, draw a circle around it.  Draw a line out from it and write what that lie has cost you, draw a circle around that cost.  What else?  Keep writing what that one lie has cost you.  When you are done, take a good look at the heavy cost in your life.  Can you continue to pay that cost? No, I didn't think you could.

Ask Holy Spirit what is the truth to that lie.  When you hear it - hold on to it.  God's truth will stand against any lie of the enemy. For every time you hear the lie hold to the truth.  Do this for each lie that is revealed. 

Do not be concerned with battling self or the enemy but stay with the truth.  Eventually you will not hear, nor be affected by the lie. Not because I said it, but because you were already free from the lies because of the love of God; the life, death, resurrection of Jesus; and the guidance of Holy Spirit.

Feel it, feel the sides of the box crumbling.  Walk free. enough for now.

Hurt People Hurt

I have so many opportunities to watch the woundedness in people and to aid in the healing of some. I had an opportunity to witness an upper level supervisor who did not have a great command of the English language to misuse a term in trying to tell me what she thought. It was so sad, because she misused the term, had no clue what she was saying, and bottom line - she spoke out of her worth wound. I realized quickly that she had worth issues. She needed help.

We all have wounds, it depends on whether or not we are seeking to heal those wounds. Too many hurt people hurt people. You have heard that before.  Make sure you are not one of those 'hurt people'. enough for now.
