Becoming Best Friends With Yourself!

Benjamin Franklin said: “A true friend is the best possession.” You can have a bank account full of money, live in the biggest house in the neighborhood, drive the newest, fanciest and coolest car, dress in the finest styles and still be lonely, miserable and frustrated with life. On the other hand, you can live in a one room shack, with little to no money, walk everywhere you go, wear the same clothes every day and be connected, happy and fulfilled in life if you have just one good friend.

Someone said: “To have a friend, you have to be a friend!” And that is some excellent and very true advice. I want to take it a step further today and say: “To be a friend to others, you first have to be a friend to yourself.” If you want others to love you, accept you and walk with you, then you have got to love yourself, accept yourself and be willing to walk with yourself wherever “yourself” may be taking you.

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” -John 15:12-13

Live life long enough and we will face rejection. Rejection hurts and is not fun at all, but if we pay close attention when rejection comes our way, we will realize that it often starts with us. So many times, we waste away our lives and living waiting on someone, anyone to accept us, love us and be a friend with us, when we don’t even accept ourselves, love ourselves or be a friend with ourselves.

We need to acknowledge our weaknesses and learn from them, but we don’t need to allow them to keep us from being our very own best friend. After all, what is a good friend? A good friend is one, who accepts us, not matter how screwed up we may be. We cannot expect others to love and accept us, if we do not love and accept ourselves. So start a new friendship today with yourself. Love yourself like you have never been loved. Accept yourself by learning and growing from your mistakes and by appreciating and amplifying your successes.

When we begin to see the good in ourselves, then others will see it too. What we focus on gets the attention, so focus on what makes you a good friend by being a good friend to yourself …

You Are Special!

The big battle of our lives is with our ego. The battle of our ego happens when we get caught up in believing that we are what we do, what we have or what we think other people think of us. It distracts us from the reality that we are all special creations of the Most High God…

When we learn to step out of the battle with ego and instead focus our energy on the reality of who we are and what we are created to do, we find purpose that drives us to the higher levels of living and allows us to enjoy the blessings of the supernatural.

“Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.” -John 1:12-13

Our power to live does not come from the world we live in, but from our Creator, the same One, who created this world we live, learn, laugh and love in. Stop for a moment and let that thought sink in, so that you may realize just how amazing and majestical you are…

You are created by God, in the image of God and gifted with the power of God. God is your source and spirit, your everything that really matters. If you want to discover and tap into your true identity, then you must begin and end with the beginning and the ending and that is God.

God is your home and it is from this place of safety and shelter that we find the empowerment to go on into whatever it is that lay before us. From this place, right, good and light flow to overcome wrong, bad and darkness to make the impossible – possible.

Our thoughts, actions and feelings become one with our Creator and our created purpose to guide us into the fulfillment of our destinies. Find the rest you have been looking for, by understanding that there is nothing for you to do, but submit, let go and let God.

No Limit Living!

Inside each of us is a seed of unlimited potential and it is up to us to decide what we are going to do with this seed. Will we ignore it, because we allow ourselves to get distracted by all the noise of the world or will we nurture it, knowing that the seed is really God in us, enabling us to live at the higher place we were created for? We all make the choice for ourselves, no matter what blame game we may try to play.

Who is God? A better way to ask that question might be: Who is God not? God is everything and everyone, the original source and stuff of everything and everyone we have known or will ever know. Another question we often ask is: Where is God? Maybe it would be better to ask “Where is God not?”, because the amazing reality is that God is everywhere and there is no where that God is not, because all that is – is God.

When we open ourselves up to God and all the potential that God is within us, we open ourselves up to unlimited miracles and unexplainable blessings. And the really beautiful truth to grab hold of is that this is reality for all of God’s creation. We are all made in His image and therefore have opportunity to live in the supernatural.

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. -Psalms 139:13-16

Open your heart mind and soul to God’s love, power, wisdom and spirit, so that you might experience and become all you were created for. Be the blessing by experiencing the blessing and sharing the blessing of the unlimited potential that lives inside of you. And never forget: The only real limit you will ever have on your life is the one you put on yourself…
