Hands Down!

Have you ever been unfairly attacked? Have you ever had untrue rumors circulated around about you? Have you ever had those that you thought were your friends turn on you?

Live long enough and it probably in some way, shape or form happens to most of us. The real issue is not what others do or say, but how we respond to it.

There was a time in my life when I found myself at what was prehaps the most terrible time I’ve ever gone through, but it did not kill me, even though there were moments that I wanted it to. It did without doubt make me stronger and I think maybe a little wiser in the process…

Many years ago, I had a story to tell but chose to listen to the Spirit and keep it to myself. Many times since, I have been tempted to share my side, but have chosen again and again to listen instead to the Spirit. It was hard at first, not defending myself, not confronting the lies, not revealing the hypocrisy, but over time, I began to learn that my life is a work in progress and that learning from my mistakes, sins, and failures are the most important thing I can do with my time and the greatest way for me to give God glory and others hope.

I have never been a perfect person, but I am in a far better place today than I have ever been and it is because I have a God, Who loves me, family that walk with me, and friends who stand by me. I am not the past that others created and I am not the past of my own creation. Today I am who and what God created me to be at this time and place and so the best thing I can do, is learn from my past, enjoy my present and grow toward my future.

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14

My life today is full of blessing, peace, love, learning, laughter and grace. I still have such a long way to go and I am enjoying the journey more than ever before. I share this with you, because I want you to know that with God all things are possible, regardless of what anyone else says or thinks. Keep your focus on Him, your heart connected with His and your life will unfold to reveal amazing blessings…

What Are You Looking For?

Whatever we see, it is important to remember that we don’t see everything. And it is very true that there is more than just what meets the eye. Most of us, tend to think of ourselves as human beings, when in reality we are so much more. We are spiritual beings made in the image of our Creator God. We are made in love, by love and for love. We cannot see the total picture of our life, because it is continually unfolding and revealing itself in miraculous and unexplainable ways.

Part of what confuses us about life is that we tend to focus on what is happening outside of ourselves and miss what is happening inside of ourselves and inside is where the real art of living, growing and developing is taking place.

“The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” -1 Corinthians 2:14

When we learn to let the inside determine the outside, rather than allowing the outside to influence the inside, we begin to live at the higher place we were created for. Our senses see, hear, feel taste and smell, allowing us to experience all that life has to offer and then some. This is what we were created for.

We have the power to choose the eyes that we see with. If we only see with our human eyes, then we will tend to focus on darkness and in that dimness, we miss out on the better things. If we choose to see with our spiritual eyes, then we experience illumination, which allows us to see the hidden things and understand the unexplainable.

Choose love and light, you will be glad you did…

Love And Light Is The Way!

Love is the gift I have been given by my Creator. God is love and I am created in God’s image, so I too am love. I will not keep myself to myself, but will share who and what I am with everyone I can, in every way I can. As I walk in and out of the challenges of life today, I will walk in with the love I share and I will walk out with the love shared with me by others.


“Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.” -1 John 2:9-10

Love is one of the great blessing of life and our blessings are grown in the giving and receiving. When I enter into a place, my goal will be to leave it better than I found it and the best way I know to do this is by sharing the love and light I have received from my Creator. My love will chase away fear and the light of my love will reveal and overcome the chaos of life.

If I encouter fear, then I will overcome it with love and if I encounter darkness, I will overcome it with light. I choose to live an empowered life of growth, victory and blessing over a life of decline, defeat and curses. I am an overcomer, an achiever, a dreamer and a winner.

Love is the way! And so I am dedicated to the miraculous as I embrace joy by living in the miraculous power of love and light… Join me and let’s make this world a better place…
