A New Perspective

Our struggles are often only a product of how we see ourselves.

If you see defeated – that’s how you’ll live.

If you see delivered – that’s how you’ll live.

If you see sick – that’s how you’ll live .

If you see health – that’s how you’ll live.

If you see lack – that’s how you’ll live.

If you see enough – that’s how you’ll live.

What are you seeing? Who are you agreeing with? Who are you believing? What are you confessing?

May today we all get ANew View and start to focus on the powerful promises of God.

Even when it doesn’t look good at the moment… He promises to work ALL things out for our good!

Carry This Knowledge

Love is a great beautifier. ~Louisa May Alcott

Loving and being loved soften the hard edges of life.

No stormy day is really bleak when we share it with a loving friend.

No formidable challenge is too overwhelming when a loved one is nudging us forward, certain of our capacity to succeed.

And the mirror reflects brighter eyes and fewer lines when we carry the knowledge that we’re loved.

Let’s share this knowledge with someone else now and spread the beauty around us.

~ Worthy Of Love / Hazelden


“Nothing great is ever accomplished in life without enthusiasm.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

You have to have a passion to see something great happen. That’s why you need to nurture your enthusiasm if you want to change.

If you say, “Well, I kind of, sort of, maybe want to change” it isn’t going to happen. If you say, “Well, I’d like to change in my spare time” it isn’t going to happen. But if you are passionate about your goal it will become reality.

Unfortunately, it’s easy to lose your enthusiasm. So how do you maintain it? Speaking from personal experience, it takes more than positive thinking or psycho cybernetics. It takes God in your life.

The word enthusiasm comes from two Greek words. The word en which means “in” and the word theos which is Greek for “God.” To be enthusiastic means to be “in God.”

When you get in God, you have enthusiasm deep in your heart.

The Apostle Paul tells us how to be enthusiastic in Romans 12:11-12, “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”

“Joyful in hope” – even when things go wrong, hang on to your hope in God and it will give you joy.

“Patient in affliction” – Remain patient because you know God will use whatever you’re going through for good.

“Faithful in prayer” – When tough times come, you have a choice: you can either pray continually or you can panic. You can either be on your knees giving it to God, or you can give up.

Once Random And Reckless

Sin is a tragic defamation of the character of our Father.

The one who fears God begins to see sin as ugly graffiti defacing the divine property and as high treason against the divine plan.

For God-fearers, that will unsettle their minds, and gnaw at their sensibilities.

God is not a God we are to be terrified of but One who captivates us in reverence and awe.

When we start to see these things it sobers us up from the once random once reckless existence. We begin to truly see things as they are, and we can never take life or sin casually again.

Don’t take His grace for granted …

Sin is not tolerable.

Stop being careless.

Let any symptom of fearlessness of God alarm you.

When we respect God deeply we will be blessed. ❤️

Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in His ways. — Psalm 128:1

Fear the Lord, then, and you will do everything well. —Herman’s

My #TodaysTakeaways from Chris Tiegreen Devotional The One Year Walk With God

Then And Then Only

“You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When the wires are all down and your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. -General Douglas MacArthur

When You Sing!

Instead of shouting a Oh’Hell Naw …

Let’s learn to instead raise a Hallelu-Yeah!

You’re weapon is a melody.

I raise a Hallelujah!!!!

With everything inside of me

I will watch the darkness flee

In the middle of the mystery

Fear you lost your hold on me!

Louder and Louder!

I raise a Hallelujah!

I go to sleep

In the middle of the storm.

I raise a Hallelujah!

Let’s hear our praises ROAR!

Up from the ashes

Hope will arise

Death is defeated

The King is alive!

Sing a little louder…

In the presence of my enemies

Sing a little louder…

Louder than the unbelief

Sing a little louder…

My weapon is a melody

Sing a little louder…

Heaven comes to fight for me

Louder and Louder!

Let’s hear our praises ROAR!

Up from the ashes

Hope will arise

Death is defeated

The King is alive!
