Value Your Gift

Value your gift.

God saw that what He created was good.

Value your service. Call what you do good. He did.

Believe in you. Believe in your product.

Never ever diminish your value and do not despise small beginnings.

God made us and called us good. We are here and therefore we are good. He thought well enough of us to assign us to earth. We are hand picked to fulfill an assignment.

Your business, ministry, product or service is bigger than you. It’s to help humanity in this lifetime.

On the other side of your obedience is a blessing for someone else.

Voices & Choices

Voice:
a particular opinion or attitude expressed.

There are many voices all around us. The environment we choose influences the voices we hear. Hearing is passive and requires little effort from us. Listening is active. It requires our choice and decision to tune in. When we take action on what we listen to we have obeyed that particular voice.

Which voice do you hear first thing in the morning? The one in your head? YouTube? TV, radio, strangers?

Whose voice do you listen for each morning? Out of all the voices in your space/environment to which do you give your attention?

Whose voice do you obey each morning? The director in a movie, play or TV show tells the actors where to stand, how to act and what to say for a desired result. In life the voices we hear, listen to and obey, direct our lives. They tell us what to say how to live and behave. And this is by our choice whether we are aware of it or not. The voice you obey directs your day. Who directs your day?

There are voices who will help our reach our destination. And there are voices who will hinder our progress. The choice is always ours. Our ears are vital organs. They are the door to our hearts and minds. We must guard them against the voices that are against our purpose, genius or destiny.

Set your environment to thrive. Be mindful when picking your digital mentors. Make sure they align with your purpose and don’t contradict each other. Only hang with the voices that promote your purpose. Only allow the voices that will help you reach your destiny. You don’t need many voices you need the right voice. Choose wisely.

Don’t Turn Back Now!

You will be tempted to resort to your old ways until your new ways are fully accepted and established. You must make up your mind to press forward! This requires a decision of quality. One for which there is no turning back. Even in the face of the temptation to do so.

You cannot be defeated so don’t you quit!

Get in Where You Fit In

Be about what you are here to do. Be about your business.

No more time for copy cats. Doing things others are doing.

It’s time to go all-in on your purpose for being on this planet.

What if you don’t know why you are here? Then that’s your assignment. To figure out why you are on this planet.

It’s easy to copy others. But it’s far more rewarding to be an original. Your assignment may resemble someone else’s but won’t be exactly the same. It may in the same field and that’s ok as long as it is your assignment.

It may seem daunting to discover who you are, but discover you must. Let’s not waste time on someone else’s assignment while ours goes undone. Find your place and get in it.

Dare to Daydream!

Make time to daydream. Schedule 25 minutes on your calendar and use that time to:
figure things out
get quiet
brainstorm
doodle
create

Get somewhere and sit down!

Sitting down requires determination and focus. Sitting down allows you to think God’s thoughts. It allows Him to think through you and allows Him to show you what he’s planned for you.


Have some fun today. Daydream.
Think of what could be. What you could be.
Decide what tomorrow will look like, today.
Draw it out.
Speak it out.
Project your future.
Determine your destiny.

Your schedule is the canvas for your day, week, month, and year.
It’s a blank slate.
Don’t use it to repeat past shortcomings and failures.
Write a new chapter of victory!
One where the hero, you, wins every time.

Succeeding Well

woman looking away

We have everything we need to live the life the Creator set up for us to live. Although we have everything for life, we need to connect with the Creator to access it. It’s not out there somewhere, it’s in us because He is in us.

Righteousness is the Creator’s definition of how our lives should be lived from His perspective. And how does He want us to live life?

“Above all things, I desire that you prosper and be in health as your mind, will, and emotions prosper. ” If you are not prospering and in good health something is wrong. It’s not normal to be broke and sick.

It’s time to change our thinking to the Creator’s way of thinking. We must not rely on outside sources. It’s time to prosper according to His standards. His standard is prosperity and good health. He’s given us everything we need to succeed and to succeed well. Let’s think about that.

your new level is your new thought

New Levels

 

Your next level is your new thought. I heard this at a conference I attended.  Casey Treat was the speaker and he talked about renewing your mind.  I’m all about what’s going on in my headsets.  What am I listening to on a daily basis?  The things that we listen to determine where we’re going to end up.  Renewing my mind is important.  What I’m listening to right now has gotten me where I am.  If I’m going to go to a different level I got to get a new thought.  But how do I get a new thought? I’ve got to get new information. I’ve got to change the information that I have been receiving, get different information and apply that information.  I now have a new thought.  I can now go to a new level.  New thoughts . . . New levels.

What new thoughts do you need to go to your next level?  We’d love to hear from you. Share this with someone.  Thanks for tuning in.

 

Decisions

The Choice is Yours

Many feel that they must choose between the lesser of two evils in this presidential election.  Yet this is not so.

The United States of America is a republic with a democratic process.  This means that elected officials get hired by the vote of the people.   And these elected officials must carry out  the will of the people who hired them. Regardless of the personal feelings or beliefs of the elected official.

We are free-will beings and even God Himself will not violate our right to choice.  Take for example the book of 1st Samuel 8:1-9. The children of Israel demanded a king like the other nations. Despite the fact, God Himself desired to be their leader, guide, and king. God gave the people what they wanted.

8 Now it came to pass when Samuel was old that he made his sons judges over Israel. 2 The name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beersheba. 3 But his sons did not walk in his ways; they turned aside after dishonest gain, took bribes, and perverted justice.
4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, 5 and said to him, “Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.”
6 But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. 8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt, even to this day—with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods—so they are doing to you also. 9 Now therefore, heed their voice. However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them.” 1 Samuel 8:1-9NKJV

In our election process, there is another option where you can make your choice known. This option has gotten little to no attention.  It is the power of the pen, pencil or sticker if you will. The power to write-in your choice.

Generally, write-in candidates can compete in any election within the United States.  Write-in candidates have a small chance of winning.  But there have been some strong showings by write-in candidates over the years.  Retrieved from https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Write-in_candidate.

Don’t like your choices? Choose someone else.  Pick up the pen and write-in!
