Day 209

Whatever we focus on...we become.  So let's put our focus on The One. One step at a time...focus on the good.
"Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies." ~Philippians 4:8-9 (MSG)

Give Him room. Keep saying yes to the small things He places in front of you. Look for the God-moments in your day today. Pay attention. "only a few things are necessary, really only one; Mary has chosen the better portion, which shall not be taken from her." ~Luke 10:42

In Him we are secure. Nothing is too big to take Jesus off His throne. We aren't designed to carry our burdens...lay them at His feet and trust that He is equipping us for our today-calling.
Have a JOYful Friday!

Where did it go...that spark I used to have? That drive that used to get me up real early to meet with Him and write? What was once pure joy (and equally terrifying) has been lost to negative thinking and flat out laziness. What once so burned in me to be a leader in His kingdom has become so difficult to feel even the slightest bit of heat....until recently.

Recently I started paying attention again.

Oh, I believe that God creates sparks and I also believe He will change the course - change the spark.

I truly believe this was all on me though. I was the one that walked away. I was the one that ignored the signs. I stopped paying attention.

I believe this because a few months back...I ran into a friend. Someone I hadn't seen in a very long time. As we were leaving...she leaned in, hugged me and said, "Keep doing what you are doing. It is so needed. Don't stop." Just out of the blue. We hadn't talked about it at all but God and I had the day before.

Pay attention…

"In the silent times-- SEEK GOD In the painful times-- PRAISE GOD In the terrible times-- TRUST GOD at ALL times-- THANK GOD!" ~Ann Voskamp

Day 183

What are we feeding ourselves? Are we feeding our fears? Are we feeding ourselves with negativity and lies? Whatever we feed will grow and if we eat like crap we will eventually feel like crap. Let's start feeding ourselves with truth. What the enemy wants is to make us weak and tear us down. God wants to fill and build us up. Let's feed our faith. Feed your soul and nourish your body. Today, let's focus on what we are feeding ourselves and when we notice the crap - push it away - and speak truth over it.
