No Limits!

You are capable of so much more! The only limits that you have to live by are the limits that you put on yourself and the great tragedy for most of us, is that we allow way to many limits to get in the way of our true potential.

“For nothing will be impossible with God.” -Luke 1:37

You are a special creation of the Most High God. You are created in the image of your Creator and made of the stuff of your Creator. You have incredible power, unlimited potential and overwhelming priviledge. It is time to wake up to the giftedness that you have been blessed with. It is time to utilize the power you have been given and live the special life of blessing you were created for. It is time to tap into your potential and start enjoying this everyday adventure that we call life. It’s time to start living up to your God-given potential, so that others can be encouraged, inspired and motivated to their best life as they get to witness you living yours…

To become the “no limit” people we were created to be, we are going to need to use some of the tools you have been blessed with, that we sometimes tend to neglect. Today, I want to draw our attention to three very special tools, that make a big difference in my life and living: My Church, My Bible and My Framily!

My Church – Everyone needs a congregation to be a part of. Men, women, boys and girls that we can do life with. People that we can bless and be blessed by. A good church is not just about what you get, but also, it is just as much about what you give. It is the give and take of blessings that created an incredible flow into and through our lives that grows us in ways that nothing else can.

My Bible – It’s been called a lot of things: A love letter, instruction guide, wisdom, God’s Word, Holy Scriptures and the list could go on and on and on. What is important is that each one of us have been given a book that has exactly what we need for exactly when we need it. The tragedy is that many of us never ever take the time to open it up, read it and take nourishment from it’s pages. Just start to read it. One verse a day is better than no verses a day. You will be amazed at how opening up your Bible will open you up to the blessings and growth of God.

My Framily – Framily is really two words put together: Family and Friends. Each one of us have people around us that we are supposed to bless, grow and encourage. We have people around us that are supposed to bless, grow and encourage us, but we have to be open to giving and taking. Look for the folks that God has given you and give yourself to them in the special ways that only you can. You will be amazed at the difference this makes in your life and living.

You are capable of so much more, now start living by claiming what is rightfully yours!

Why Your Bible Matters!

I think a lot about the Scriptures and what they say. I learned about the Scripture when I was just a little boy attending Mrs. Dora Williams’ Sunday School Class at Calvary Baptist Church in Williamston, South Caroline. She taught me the stories of the Bible and even helped me learn my first Bible Verse: “Jesus Wept!”

Most folks now a days, know just about enough Scripture to be dangerous. Some people think that the Scriptures is a bunch of rules, do’s and don’ts designed to keep us from enjoying ourselves here on this earth, but that is very far from the truth.

The Scriptures are actually designed by God to help us have the very best and most blessed life here upon this earth. The key is reading them, understanding them, applying them and living them. The more we do this, the better we get and the more real and powerful the Christian life becomes.

15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. -James 2:15-17

The reality is that talk is cheap. Most anyone can learn to talk a good game, but very few actually take the time to learn how to live it according to God’s Word. If God’s Word says do it, then we should do it. If God’s Word says not to do it, then we shouldn’t do it. When we mess it up, and we will mess it up, we should admit it, learn from it and grow on. To deny it or ignore it is to rob ourself of the growth opportunity it presents us.

The Scripture reminds us over and over again that God our Creator is interested in much more than lip service. He is looking for life submission and surrender to Him and His will, with the promise that His blessings will flow as we grow to become all He has called, created and gifted us to be.

Take some time to read the Word and also to live the Word, you will be glad you did!
