You Are Your Responsibility!

You are responsible for you! If you do not take responsibility and make effort for your own blessing and growth, then who will? You are a magnificent creation of the most high God and if you truly believe that, then you are going to take the ”stuff” of God that you are and work with it to become all that you have been created to be.

Look in the mirror and what do you see? You should see an amazing, beautiful, creative force for blessing staring back at you. You are love created by love, in love and for love. You are made in the Trinity image of God as a whole being of body, mind and spirit. You are worthy of blessing, favor and honor. In the mind of your Creator, you always have been and always will be worthy, which makes you a supernatural vessel for blessing. Embrace and celebrate your whole self each time you see your reflection, because this is who you are and so much more.

”Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone,without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load.” -Galatians 6:4-5

The biggest part of taking responsibility for yourself, begins in acknowledging who you are in all your created magnificence of becoming. This enables you to let go of and give up the destructive patterns of behavior that ego has manifested in your flesh, so that you can reconnect with the universe and open yourself to the miraculous.

What do you need to work on? What do you need to let go of, so you can grab hold of the blessings you were created for. Ask and answer this question and you are on your way to experiencing a fulfillment that most people only dream of. Your life is a book written and how it is to be read is up to you. Take responsibility for your choices, decisions, actions and reactions. Watch your destiny take shape and love, miracles and blessings become a part of your everyday reality… Love & Light!

Created For So Much More!

Why are you the way you are? If we are honest with ourselves, we all have things we want to be better in our lives, but wanting is not enough. Some where a long the way, we learned that if things are not working the way we want them to, then it must be someone else’s fault. I call this the “BLAME GAME” and we are great at playing it. We’ve gotten so used to doing it, that we don’t even realize we are doing it and this is what so often gets us caught up in a life that is never ever getting any better in the sense that we were created for so much more.

We were created to bless and be blessed. We were created for success, happiness and fulfillment which comes from having a purpose and chasing after it. When we fail to see these things materialize in our own life, then we often shift to our “bad” training and rather than taking responsibility for ourselves, we begin to play the blame game.

The problem with blaming others is that it keeps us from achieving our created purpose and fulfilling the destiny or our soul through this human experience. The fact is: Everyone that is living this human experience is doing what they know how to do, what they’ve been trained to do by their surroundings and upbringing.

I never knew my biological father. My Mom was living in a very unhealthy and dangerous situation, which she eventually found the strength to get out of. Not long after that, my biological father discovered he had leukemia, which in short order took his life. My Mom eventually got back on her feet through hard work and supportive family and friends. She started to do whatever she had to do to make a life for the two of us to survive. It would have been very easy for her to give up, blame others and not take any responsibility, but she had more than herself to take care of, she had a baby boy, so she did what Mom’s do. She got rid of the excuses, didn’t get distracted by blame and did what she had to do to begin building a life and a future for us.

Eventually she would remarry a very kind, humble and decent man. A man who would adopt me as his very own son and raise me as such. They would eventually bless me with a little sister who was ten years younger than me and we would all grow up to be one big happy and often dysfunctional family.

Now what you don’t see, read or understand in that story is that interwoven all through it was a lot of ups and downs. We have had our fair share of mountain tops, but also walked through more valleys than we care to share. Life has been a challenge, but a good challenge as far as any of us are concerned and what hasn’t killed us, most definitely has made us stronger. We have struggled, faced heartache, experienced loss and gone through things that we would rather not talk about, but at the end of the day, it hasn’t been anyone else’s fault, just our experience and we are better, closer and stronger for it.

Life isn’t fair. Sometimes it sucks and many times along the way, it just isn’t any fun at all, but if we choose, we can learn from it all. If we will make sure to not get distracted by playing the blame game and just accept what happens as it happens, then we can learn from it, grow because of it and embrace the challenge that it brings our way, because it’s true – you really were created for so much more…

Living Is Giving!

“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.”  Mark 8:35

That’s LIfe!

This is one of those powerful lessons in the Scriptures that we often fly over and miss.  “If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it.”  Life is not something that we hang onto,  Life is something that we live and in the living of life, we experience life.  Life with all of it’s ups and downs is living and living is much more than just existing.

The key to really living is not trying to live life, but trying to give life, because when we give our life away to love others as we have been loved, then we really begin to live.  The good news is that God loves each of us and has an amazing plan for our lives.

Don’t miss life, because you have gotten distracted by trying to make a living.  Live life by giving your life to your Creator by serving and making life better for others.  You will find that life is a whole lot more fun, when you focus on more than just existing…
