There is Power in What We Think About and Thank About

There is Power in What We Think About & Thank About!

Think About Thank About

          Plainly stated,  expressing Gratitude is one of the most important things you can do everyday to live a successful, victorious life!

            When you are truly thankful for all the things that allow you to live and breathe and have your being each and every day, you allow less and less room for dissatisfaction and complaining to take root in your mind. God/Creator/Universe honors gratitude and sends more of those things you are appreciative of your way!

When you change your thinking, you change your life!

When you are appreciative, your life changes!

Sounds like a win-win to me 🙂

Stop Procrastinating

Stop Procrastinating

Stop ProcrastinationThere’s no time like the present!

          It’s so easy to make procrastination a habit. You do it once and things turn out fine, you do it twice and things still turn out fine……..or so you think! Making a habit of procrastination could most certainly cause you to miss out on opportunities you have been waiting for and praying for. This is not to say that the opportunity may not come around again. It probably will if it’s really meant for you to have it….but it may also take some additional time because you were not in position to receive the blessing/opportunity when it was ready for you!

Learn to plan ahead, make a schedule and create a timeline. Start before you’re ready!

“God is Within her. She will not fail”

“God is Within Her. She will not fail” – Psalm 46:5

          Today’s post is really simple. The verse featured as the title of this blog post was on my heart and I wanted to share it.

          I set the intention of succeeding at everything I do, but honestly, some of the tasks that are before me initially appear to be overwhelming. However, I have to often remind myself that “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me”, “If God be for me, who can be against me?”, and specifically on today – “God is Within Her. She will not Fail.”

           Taking a little time to sit down & meditate on all the blessings I experience and posses, reminds me that I can and WILL conquer the day victoriously!

Start Before You’re Ready!

Start Before You’re Ready!

Start Before You're Ready

            Truth is…….you may never feel 100% “ready” when it comes to major life events – choosing a college to attend, starting a business, deciding to get married and/or starting a family, moving to a new city, etc. However, often times we have to Pray & meditate and then take a leap of Faith when it comes to making these decisions. Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will! Countless dreams and desires go unrealized because people doubt themselves too much to even take the first step.

           So, make plans and, by all means, do your due diligence. Remember that you may not ever feel 100% “ready”, but start anyways! There’s always room for stuff to be smoothed out later 🙂
