This is my encouraging word for today… Be. Confident. In. Who. You. Are. I would venture to say that it’s not always “you’re doing something wrong”. You just haven’t found your tribe; your clique; your team.
“You’re doing something wrong” seems to be the go to answer when others find your actions out of alignment with their thinking and or timing. Apparently, that statement, and framework of thinking isn’t applied equally towards everyone. And, if it they were, how few people seem to listen.
In my varied life experiences, I’ve seen people who follow the rules and try to do everything “right” and still don’t seem to progress as much as they desire. Yet, people, who we’ve all wondered “How the hell did they even learn to breathe“; seem to have immeasurable success!
So, what’s really going on? Maybe, you are doing it right; but, not for the people you are currently dealing with; or the time in which you are dealing with them. Maybe it’s time to find your clique. Find the group of folks that appreciate who you are and what you have to offer. Find a team that you can help and who are willing to help you. Find the tribe that you can associate with– where you can breathe deeply, and laugh out loud with. Race, religion, color most likely will have nothing to do with these people. Because they will be the people who live way beyond those boundaries; and who simply want to win and see others winning in their own right. No judgement, no fake competition, no stress. WARNING: That group might be small, and it may take some time to find them, but fine them you must! The next question…. What do you do with everybody else? Answer: #GoldenRule, stay praying, and know that they are trying to live their best life too. #LetsGo #StayWinning
P.S. Imma still talk about crazy shit that I see tho 👀😁🤤
Recently, I had a thought session. I was wondering if I could be disappointed, dissatisfied; yet thankful and grateful all at the same time. And, my conclusive answer is, Yes. This is how…
First, I am very thankful and grateful to Word/God for life, health, and strength; and the ability and power to do what I must. At the same time, I recognize the current state and situation that I find myself (which constantly changes). Sometimes, that leads to frustration, dissatisfaction and disappointment; but, I work hard at NOT murmuring– instead I focus more on being prayerful.
I find that prayer/meditation and supplication, with thanksgiving (as the Bible mentions in Philippians 4:6) takes me outside of my problem and situation and allows me the space to breathe and think; and, in that space, I find peace.
I’ve learned that it is ok to feel and work through your feelings, work through them and still maintain an attitude of gratefulness and thanksgiving. The process allows me to “Be angry; yet sin not” because in the end, I’m still thankful and grateful. It’s good to know that I don’t need to be hypocritical or fake in my walk with the Word. If you are still working things out in your walk of faith, I encourage you to keep pressing, keep believing; keep being thankful and grateful. Selah.
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said and shall he not do it? Or, hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”
It’s been a while since I’ve written any inspirational notes or encouragements here. I think about them a lot– internally, but just haven’t put anything down.
Today, I have something for you to think about from Numbers 23:19. “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said and shall he not do it? Or, hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” …Awesome– in so many ways. But the long and short of it all, I believe, is that God (YHWH) is saying, I’m different.
For a while now, a concept keeps coming back Read More
I woke up this morning ready to welcome the new day. I gave praise, prayed, and sat down to get an early start on blogging…because today I felt good, (and totally let yesterday get away from me).
“Uh oh”, I thought to myself as I stared at a screen with new WordPress options… “Did I do that or did they?”. Beginning to feel the tension build (already), I heard the Word say to me, “good morning”…and I replied, “good morning”. My eyes still fixed on the screen, the conversation continued… Read More
I was thinking about how much time and effort we often put into projects and things that we think matter to us. Then I thought about how people often get discouraged when results don’t show right away; or recognition is delayed in coming. This comes to encourage you to not give up. Keep your focus. Make positive moves that will add to your success and keep it moving.
It is hard for failure to hit a moving target. And, if you are steady on your grind, you are adding layers of reinforcements that will help you withstand criticism, doubt and fear when they come. After all, you are a winner. You will be victorious.
