Day 20 God Says So!

God says so!

This challenge has examined some things in us that needed to be changed or finessed. We know the mind is truly the battleground!!! The comfort comes from knowing it is indeed a fixed fight. John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Is the instruction given clear but your trying to make it logical in your own eyes. When I was a child I can remember asking my mom “why” after being told to do something. Not only would I get the evil eye but she would say “because I said so”. Sometimes the instruction is “God says so”. No logic or reason you can possibly understand. So move because God says so! Start the ministry because God says so!  Trust that your children’s success is written because God says so! That last one was for myself. As we are drawing to a close I want you to know there is no greater resource than God. It’s my passion to instruct people and helping th…

Day 19 Start with Love Part 2

Start With Love part 2
 The last 2 days have been about loving Jesus and being obedient. Yesterday the private group focused on “why I love Jesus”. One member said it’s like the song says “because he first loved me”. We are heading into the hardest part of the matter which is loving others. I’m not talking about just loving the people who love you. I mean loving the people who you know don’t like you or have your best interest in mind. You might ask why do we have to do that. Firstly, is it necessary to have that loving attitude and mindset because it drives your actions and your choices. Luke 6:27-36 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as yo…

Day 17 Start With Love

Start With Love                                 Don’t complicate things. Isaiah 53:5 “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” What can we possibly do or say to show our love and appreciation. The answer is found in John 14:15 “if you love me, keep my commandments”. I find that often times people complicate things way too much. We spend countless hours contemplating how to make progress in our lives. Yet many of us have closed ourselves off to the simplest concept of faith and love.When we are lovers and doers we began to see things shift. The complexity is created in our minds. This challenge has been about training andshaping the mind but nothing can substitute being in tune with God. Some things you have to know and hold on to. Keeping these principals in our hearts and minds make all the difference in the world. I can recall getting on a bike for the first time. I…

Day 16 Fighting the unbelief

Fighting the unbelief
Day 13 was spent on reflecting on the days past and for my private group we focused on guided meditation and channeling our energy on the vision. It was an awesome two days. There are a couple of  people who asked about unbelief. Let's examine it together. I like to ask people who express some unbelief whether verbally or through their actions this question. What do you believe? We spend a lifetime fueling unbelief. Mark 9:24 " help my unbelief". God is not interested in the magnitude of your belief. He is looking for even the smallest traces of evidence of it. Matthew 17:20 If you have the faith of a mustard seed, you can say to a mountain move and it will move. When I ask what do you believe in, I'm really asking what have you placed your faith in. Is it your spouse, your children, your job, your friends, or your church. Before you hurry and answer no let me define faith. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary  faith is an allegiance to …

Day 12 The Finisher Mindset

The Finisher Mindset                               Choices lead to habits and habits define your character. You have probably heard this before. Ask yourself What does your character say about you? Well, let’s examine the pattern of your choices. Do you have a habit of starting things and not finishing. Bishop Cornelius Blake in a recent sermon said “ do what you signed up for and do it until it is finished”. Recently my teenage daughter came and matter of factly said “ I want to quit track”. My husband and I couldn’t believe it. I mean for over a year all she could talk about was joining track. We went to the track every Saturday to exercise and train. She seemed so excited and committed. But then, came the pain of her first loss, a coach that liked to push and get the most out of her, and the reality she had to also maintain her grades. We can certainly relate to that. However, the successful thinkers and business owners seem to master the art of finishing and that’s what sets them…

Day 11 A Timely Mindset

A Timely Mindset
We have all heard the expression “why put off tomorrow what can be done today”. The Bible says in proverbs 6:4 “Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do. “ Do you realize you’ve had a lot of yesterdays in your lifetime. There seems to be a big misconception about time. We somehow whimsically say “I will do it tomorrow”. Have you began to notice that tomorrow gets here faster than we expect. So our dreams, healing, businesses, ministries etc... sleep and wait for another tomorrow. The truth is what you sow today is what you reap tomorrow. So it’s already a promise that if you didn’t make a move today you will not see any results tomorrow. This week we have been discussing the mindset of a warrior. Joshua in the battle of Jericho was not just obedient but timely. The smallest details have the most impact in battle and in life. Your future successes are wrapped in your daily routines (Dr. Micheal Murdock). Joshua 6:10 Joshua had commanded the army, “Do not gi…
