What are emotions?                                                                                                                                                   Emotions, often called feelings, include experiences such as love, hate, anger, trust, joy, panic, fear and grief and they are states of feeling that result in physical and psychological changes that influence our behavior- According to Wikipedia.

So whatever emotions or feelings you are letting out will greatly affect the outcome of your destiny. When you have positive emotions you are you will attract positive things in your life, if you have negative emotions you will attract negative things in your life. So it’s very important not to let negative emotions control our destiny because our emotions can either have a great effect on our destiny or a bad effect depending on how you use them.

1. Change your thoughts

Whenever you are caught up in a situation that might cause you to think negatively and cause you to have negative emotions towards a particular situation shift your mindset into something good and set your focus on something different that will cause you to have a good feeling or good emotions about yourself so that you can react in the right way and not let those negative emotions overwhelm you, overpower you and control your destiny.

For the Bible states it perfectly, it says…Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Proverbs 12:2.

2. Avoid sharing your emotions or feelings with negative minded people.

Whenever you’re going through a situation not everybody has to have an input on what you’re going through. So be very careful and mindful of who you are sharing your feelings and emotions with. Avoid sharing your feelings with toxic and negative people who don’t have your best interests at heart. Guard your heart in all that you do so that you will not fall into the temptation of letting their feelings or their negative emotions be passed on to you and you end up reacting in the way that you were not supposed to. So don’t give negative people access to your life and allow them to sabotage your destiny anymore.

The Bible says Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it Proverbs 4:23

3. Change your response

Whenever you’re caught up in a situation that will cause you to react in a negative way please do not engage but take the highroad and engage in a more positive way even when the person is being negative.Whenever somebody wishes you evil always wish them good things and bless them because in doing so your path will be blessed and their evil feelings or emotions will not hinder you from pursuing your destiny because you did not engage in their negative energy that would have turned out ugly and chaotic but you chose to do it the right way and did not give room to the enemy to control your emotions.

See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. 1 Thessalonians 5:15

4. Pray for self- control and for God’s wisdom.

Whenever you are overwhelmed with a lot of feelings and mixed emotions and you don’t know what to do always pray to God and ask him for guidance and for self-control in that present situation so that you can be able to act the right way without hurting yourself or the ones around you. Ask God to fill your heart with love for those that hate you and ask him to fill you with His heart, with His thoughts so that you can be like Him and live and for fill your destiny.

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline 2 Timothy 1:7

5. Acknowledge that your destiny is more important than your feelings.

Your destiny is more important than your feelings because feelings come and go based on the seasons and the times that you’re going through but your destiny will always live on when you embrace it the right way. You have to stop letting negative situations hinder from living the life that God has created for you to have . You have been given the abundance of life and granted heavenly access and you need to use It the right way.

The Bible says For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future Jeremiah 29:11.

God has not created you to be governed by your feelings or emotions. He created you to live in His will, in His plans and in His purpose in order to fulfill your destiny. Do it God’s way and you will succeed because you are special in his eyes,your destiny matters ,your future matters and you are God’s masterpiece.

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10.

6. Never make decisions regarding your future when your having a negative mindset.

Whenever you are controlled by bad emotions and you make decisions you will always end up making the wrong choice because you were driven by wrong motives.          Always clear your mind or renew your mind daily and feel it with positivity so that when you are going to make decisions that are very important and are geared towards your destiny you do not end up making the wrong ones that will cost you a life of happiness and abundance. Always remember this, wrong thinking , bad emotions or feelings will always sabotage your destiny and hinder you from living out your dreams.

do all thingswith love

7. Shift your attention or focus on to something that will give you true joy and happiness.

When you are faced by a situation that causes you to have negative emotions focus on things that are going to give you joy. Surround yourself with people that make you happy. Feel your mind with things that are pure, lovely and praiseworthy.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8

8. Listen to motivating and inspiring messages or devotionals that will keep your mind focused on positive things that will empower your destiny.

Whatever you feed your spirit you will manifest.. So when you feed your emotions with good positive vibes all that you do will flourish. Positive messages will empower and inspire you to  do and think better which will cause you to succeed.

Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

6 Ways on How to walk in your purpose!

When God created us, He placed purpose in the inside of us. As we were created we were predestined for greatness. As you are walking in  your daily life haven’t you seen someone who is living in their purpose and you got inspired. When someone is living their purpose its a beautiful thing to see. 

Purpose is not for the select few, its for all of us, but its going to be up to us to purse it and activate it. When you realize your purpose you will exude happiness. Whenever you are walking in your purpose and you are doing what you are created to do you will experience true bliss and freedom.

If you haven’t found your purpose yet, don’t worry you will, because its your birthright , you where born for this. You are a world changer and you where created for greatness and I believe your going to find it.

Personally I remember years back asking God what my purpose in life was, I used to feel a calling in my spirit that I was called to do so much more and make an impact in peoples lives. I didn’t want to live my life doing the same thing, same agenda without making a difference. So as I asked God about it He started to reveal to me these things that I’m going to share with you that have enabled me to walk in my purpose and I hope they will help you to.

jungle & river trails

1. Listen to your gifts, skills and talents

You have to listen to your gifts and pay close attention to the things you are good at because most of the times your purpose lies in the things you are passionate about that give you total freedom and ease. Also pay close attention to what your friends, family and co-workers say you are good at. Sometimes people on the outside tend to see the potential in you that you never thought you got. So use those relationships to help you identify your gifts and purpose.

2.Change your perception

Many times we ask our selves questions about what we are called to do and we keep going in circles and never get anything done. The thing is, you are to redirect your mind and change your perception about who you are because it will change your perspective and open you up to an abundance of creative ideas. You will discover dreams in you that you didn’t know existed. That will create a passion with in you to search and do something great and meaningful. Use the scenes from your life and begin to visualize yourself as this person you’ve been trying to manifest. Whatever it is don’t limit yourself. When you do that you will discover your purpose and when you do you will feel a peace about it and that will propel you to move forward in your destiny.

3. Pray for direction

When you can’t seem to figure out what you where called to do trust and believe in the one that created you in the first place and instilled purpose in you and trusted you enough to walk in it and fulfill your destiny. Pray to God and ask Him to guide you and give you clarity in your pursuit and grant you wisdom and understanding to know exactly what you where called to do. He will answer your prayer. The bible says we have not because we ask not. So don’t live your life in the dark without getting God in the middle of it. Trust me it will be worth it.when you trust God with your purpose and destiny.

4. Live beyond your comfort zone

Stretch yourself and do something you have never done before , something that is not familiar and you will learn something new that will make a great impact on your life. Stretching yourself will help you unlock your hidden potential. So choose to do something different everyday you will discover more about yourself and you will realize there is more to you than you thought. You will discover that your thought process will change and you will have space enough to dream big.

5. Make a positive change with your gift.

Once you have discovered your purpose use your gifts to change and impact peoples lives. Once you share your purpose with others you will find it more rewarding, fulfilling and it will give you great joy. So I encourage you to use your gifts to bless others and allow it to be your mission seeing other people happy with what God has gifted you with. Don’t be afraid to take action and follow your heart to walk in the purpose and the destiny God has given you.

6. Take the limits off of you once and for all

Whatever limitations you have heard over the years that have hindered you from pursing your purpose its time to let go. Allow yourself to dream and visualize the person and the life you want to live. No more second guessing, doubting your purpose. You are worth it and deserve to live a life of meaning and purpose. The possibilities for you are endless. You can do this!

By practicing the above steps everyday they will change and transform your life. I have witnessed this in my own live that I am seeing the vision of the person I’m becoming,  I am confident and I know what God has created me to do. I am walking in my purpose  and it has given me the greatest fulfillment and I can’t wait to see what else unfolds. Seeing other people blessed , living their purpose and fulfilling their destiny gives me great joy. You can walk in your purpose to.

THE BATTLE BELONGS TO GOD

He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15

Many times i have had people say life is a battle. That statement is true life is hard, its full of trials and tribulations, so many hardships and challenges. Many times we fight, we lose ,we take chances, we fall and sometimes we win to. But one this that remains constant is life’s challenges and trials, they are always present.

Many times when you are faced with those challenges its easier to cave in and try to figure things out with our strength. we have chosen to fight a war thats not ours to fight thats why the many times we have done that we have ended up more stressed out and overwhelmed because we try to do things our own way and forgot to put God in the middle of out battles.

Many times you have chosen to fight your own battles because you where so afraid to fail and you forgot that you were nothing without God. Without God you are an easy target to the works of the enemy because you are not walking in His power but our own flesh which is weak.

God wants to remind you through his word in 2 Chronicles 20:15 and He says Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15. So when trouble shows up do not be discouraged but trust in God’s power and He will see you through.

God is saying do not be afraid for whatever battle, trial, lose, pain, sickness, enemies, betrayals or who trials to come against you. No matter how big the storm is, whether all your friends and loved ones have turned against and you feel so alone, the army thats rising up against you might be huge but be encouraged because the lord says the battle is not your but it’s God’s.

When you trust God with your battles you will realize that things in your life will get much easier and you will have more peace. You won’t worry and stress because you will know that king of kings is fighting on your behalf.

Whatever storm or battle you face God is with you. With Him you will always have the victory. Trust God, He is in the middle of your situation and will not let anything harm you.

 

Just like Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego where thrown in the fire furnace God was there with them and they never got burnt  He will do the same for you. The bible says If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king-Daniel 3:17 .

And then in Daniel 3:24-28- King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods. Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. Servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire. Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants!

 

This story in the bible is to remind you that the battle is not yours but the Lord’s. So don’t be afraid or discouraged of what may come against you and Just know God is in Control of your life and His always going to fight your battles for you.

Don’t let your past destroy your future 

Do you know that many times we have allowed our past to determine what we can achieve or dream about. We have determined our success from where we came from. 

Just because you came from a family that was poor , may be they never went to school, they lack the resources to pursue their own dreams, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to end up that way. 

You have to shift your mentality or your way of thinking about your destiny. If your family was not educated then you go to school get a degree and change that, if they did not pursue their dreams and gave up you pursue your dreams and never quit until they come to pass. 

You can change your history by the way you think and you can change your past by the way you think. Just because you grew up in a certain way doesn’t determine how you’re going to end up, you can change that right now by changing the way you think about yourself about your destiny about your worth. 

I want you to know this that you deserve every good thing on this planet. So make up your mind today and don’t allow any memories, loss, negativity from your past sabotage your dreams and destiny.

Make sure you don’t stand in the way of your dreams by the way you think about your dreams.  If you think that big dreams are just for the select few and not for you then you will not achieve anything but if you think and decide in your mind that you’re not going to be a product of your past. Then good things are going to start happening to you . The manifestation of God’s blessings will follow you everywhere you go because you allowed your self to believe in the impossible and refused to let the past detect your future.

You are going to achieve greater things that your family even ever dreamt, you are going to go places you have never been before. You are really changing your legacy, you’re you’re representing your family that didn’t have the opportunity to do what you have done, now you know you can do it. 

You have the power within you to achieve every dream that God has placed inside of you, the only thing you’re going to do is do not judge yourself based where you come from but change your mentality and your perception and see yourself as a winner and see yourself as an overcomer and remember that God did not bring you the spa to for sake you that he has plans for you plans to give you a hope and a future.

 God did not say to give you a past but He said He will give you a hope and a future so that you could be great in all areas of your life. Now you’ve got to believe that got what it takes to be a success that and your dreams will come to pass. Don’t allow your past hinder you from your dreams anymore.

This is a new day and a season greater and the best things are a head of you. The past is gone your best future is right in front of you in Jesus name.

Stay motivated and inspired to dream big and never give up.

Fight for your dreams 

~ Never ever give up, no matter what

When talking about fighting for your dreams and believing in yourself and never giving up even when you fail over and over and over again all you Gotta do is you have to get back up again and fight for your dreams, your destiny and everything that you believe in because it will come to pass with great perseverance, consistency and focus.

 Now let’s look at the life of Abraham Lincoln for example it teaches us a lot about fighting for your dreams . Abraham Lincoln fought for his dreams that even when he failed he never gave up until he achieved his dreams.

In 1831, Abraham Lincoln failed in business.

In 1832, Abraham Lincoln was defeated for state legislator.

In 1833, Abraham Lincoln tried a new business, and failed.

In 1835, Abraham Lincoln’s fiancée died.

In 1836, Abraham Lincoln had a nervous breakdown.

In 1843, Abraham Lincoln ran for congress and was defeated.

In 1848, Lincoln ran again, and was defeated. Again.

In 1855, Lincoln ran for the Senate, and lost.

In 1856, Lincoln ran for Vice President, and lost.

In 1859, Lincoln ran again for the Senate. He was defeated.

Then, in 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States. 

He never gave up no matter what he failed at or whatever odds were against him he persevered and fought till the end and won you can do it to.What matters most is not how many times you fail, but that you never stop trying just like Abraham Lincoln did. Always fight for your dreams till they become a reality. 

~Stay focused and persistent 

Even when everything seems to be against you and you can’t see your way through keep trying and fight for your dreams don’t give up or lose your focus because the enemy will always use your weaknesses against you to hinder you , distract you from fighting for your dreams.

The only reason why we fail it’s because of broken focus . Lack of focus will kill your dreams before they are even born. When you lose sight of your dreams you will never achieve them. Stay focused and patient in your season. Be consistent in your dreams and fight for what you believe and you will achieve it.

~Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams.

Sometimes we tend to complain about our age and think that maybe we are too old or too young to pursue our dreams but age is just a number but your dreams are in you and alive, they want to come out but you have let your age hinder you from pursuing them. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 6 years old or your 20, 30, 40, 60 , 70 years old or older, as long as you have a dream inside of you and believe in it 100% you will achieve it. Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams. As long as you have breath in you , you can achieve your dreams.

~Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Most of the time we have talked ourselves out of pursuing our dreams because we didn’t not have the resources to back up what we believed in and that has stood in the way our destiny. Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams. When you keep fighting  for your dreams the right doors will open up for you. The more you walk into your destiny God will open doors of financial breakthroughs and opportunities will present themselves to you if you do not give up so quickly .

~Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Even when everybody doesn’t see what you see don’t let them discourage or distract you from dreaming, don’t let their words distract you from believing in your dreams and fighting for them. 

The enemy will use your haters , the naysayers to try to sabotage your destiny but the more they do that keep on believing in your dreams even harder. Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.Use their words as momentum to prove to them that you can do what God called you to do.

You can do it and you will achieve all your dreams in Jesus name. Believe in yourself and never give up no matter what.

Stay inspired and motivated and dream big

7 ways to never ever give up on you or your dreams

1.Trust God’s plan for your life: The Bible says in proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him,and he will make your paths straight. Whenever you fill like giving up trust God’s plan for your life because He will never let you down, His timing is always best, even when it gets tough and you don’t see what God is doing and maybe your thinking nothing good is going to happen for you don’t give up because God is working out something for your good. Trust Him and you will be blessed. 

2. Stay focused: Phillipians 3:15-16, So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision – you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it. I know this world has a lot of distractions but to don’t give in, stay focused on your goal, what out for the distractions that come through friends, the media, work place, haters, stress and much more, disconnect from it all and that will give the the mindset you need to stay focused on you and your goals.

3. Always have a positive mindset: Achieving your goals will take some time, it might be weeks, months or years that’s why it’s important for you to enjoy the process. Celebrate the little victories in your process..always seek out the good out of the bad and focus on that.. surround yourself with positive energy and stay away from all negativity it will cause you to give up …the Bible says in Philippians 4:8, Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

4. Pray without ceasing: Pray always and Ask God to Grant you strength in all you do. Ask God for the right direction towards your goals and dreams and He shall direct your path and He will give you clarity. In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

5. Surround yourself with the right network of people/ friends: Who you surround your self with is very important. Many times when you make wrong choices it’s because the people you surround with where making bad choices and you ended doing the same.. so surround yourself with people that will make you a better person, surround yourself with people that have a similar goal as you.  The right relationships will always connect you to the right people to help you achieve your dreams. So please stay away from the dream killers.

6. Use failure as a stepping stone: If you fail as you try to achieve your goal, instead of using that failure as an excuse to quit, use it as a stepping stone to keep pushing forward.  When you fail at something it doesn’t mean you lost, it means it’s an opportunity to try again and be better.

7. Give up on your excuses: You can’t have excuses about everything in your life and win. Excuses will always kill your focus which will cause you not to achieve your dreams. Realize that you are responsible for what happens next in your life it can be both frightening and exciting but it’s worth if your face it head on and don’t give up.

Stay motivated and inspired to never give up!

No more Excuses against your Dreams and Destiny

Do you have a dream that you been trying to pursue but you never get around it. Are Excuses standing in the way of your dreams. Many times our dreams have not been realize because we have had so many excuses of why we can’t do it because we are afraid to fail so we decided not to even try.

When you have too many excuses in life of what you shouldn’t do or achieve your dreams you are really robbing yourself of  a great destiny God has for you. When you keep on having excuses in your life you will never discover the greatest potential that lies within you. Let today be the moment you decided to give your dreams a chance. Let this be the day you put fear behind you and walk in confidence and purpose.

I have come to realize that many times when we don’t want to pursue our dreams its because we are afraid of what the outcome is going to be and we actually talk ourselves out of it or say to ourselves maybe I’m not good enough or maybe I’m not going to do a great job, that self sabotage will kill your dreams.  As long as you keep on with that mindset you will never do what you want to do you in life but live in fear of the future, isolation from your dreams and you will miss out on living the life God wants you to live and you won’t discover the gifting’s that God has placed inside of you.

You are a jewel that God has placed on this earth to succeed in every area of your life. But many times the devil has lied to you that you’re not good enough and that if you try to pursue your dreams you’re going to fail. All these negative thoughts have overwhelmed and convinced your mind to giveup and not to dream and you find yourself stuck in a cycle that you don’t understand and you want to see change in your life. Today is the day for your freedom, Today is the day you choose you, your dreams, life and purpose because God says you’re good enough and you can and you wil achieve all your dreams

God says you can do whatever you put your mind to, just know that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Even in the places where your weak do not be afraid because God will give you strength when your weak. So when you are weak, do not take your weakness as a sign of failure, actually your weakness is a tool that God uses to manifest His strength within you and gives you the power to do great things and fulfill your dreams.

So no more excuses against your dreams and destiny, just faith and believe in yourself , believe God has a plan for you and believe you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, so go forth and pursue your dreams, do not be afraid of anything, do not be distracted because God’s got you and you are going to accomplish everything that He has placed inside of you for the glory of His name. Have a blessed week.

Change the story of your life

Whatever you have tried to do for years and you seem to be in the same place seeing no progress , no results, its time to change your story. Many times we get so stuck in life because of the choices we have made or may be we have chosen to do nothing. You have got to change your thinking and do something with your life and stop waiting for people to do things for you or rescue you.

When we look at the story of the man at the pool that got his healing- John 5:1-9 Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals. Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.”  At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. The day on which this took place was a Sabbath,

This man stood at the pool for 38 years to receive his healing, wow! that’s a long time and when Jesus asked him why he was there he said he had no one to help him into the water. He was making excuses of why he didn’t move or do something about it. How many times in your life have you sat there year after year and did nothing about your dreams and excepted someone to rescue you and nobody showed up. How many excuses have you made because you where afriad to purse your dreams?, Its time to do something about it. When you look at your situation and how many times you have been stuck year after year because you did nothing what God is saying to you right now is get up and walk. Don’t be like the man at the pool that had to wait 38 years to receive his miracle or live his dream. You can start living your dream today!.

God is asking you this, Do you want to get well?, Do you want healing?, Do you want a breakthrough?, Do you want to leave your dreams? Do you want to prosper and live the abundant life in Him?, If the answer is yes then God is saying to you right now get up and walk and receive your God given destiny.

Do not go to the grave with your dreams still in you, you’ve got to do something about it. Step out on faith and trust God and ask Him about your destiny and ask him to guide your path. Stop complaining about what is not happening in your life, stop doubting the power within you to do Gods will.

God chose you to make a difference in this world, so you have to ask yourself these questions, what has God called you to do? , what are you going to do about it?. Do not let your mess define you and keep you locked up in your mind and life and cleanse you mind with His word and allow him to purify your thoughts for His glory and allow God to clean you from the inside out. When you allow God in the chambers of your heart He will transform you and change your story for His glory.

Whatever God has put inside of you put it into action and pursue it. Do what God has put in you and what you are passionate about, it will make you very happy and you change peoples lives while doing it. You got it in you to accomplish your purpose. So don’t take your gifts for granted because they  will make room for and bring you before great men.

What you have gone through or what trials you have faced and everything you have had to endure your story doesn’t have to end up that way. It hurts and its hard i know but stop sitting on your mat, self-imprisoned by the circumstances of your life, Stop feeling sorry for yourself and stop waiting for someone to rescue you and take action. Remember Jesus did not  help the man into the water, He comes to him on his mat, the same mat and situation the man so wants to escape, God speaks words of life and resurrection. He told him get up and walk. God is breathing life in every dead situation in your life, everything that has held you bound for such a long time God is delivering and setting you free today. So get up an walk today and change the story of your life in Jesus name.

Start your day by being thankful. When you look around you there so many things that you can be thankful for. A lot of things are happening in the world and around your life but always choose a lifestyle of being thankful and be grateful for everything.

Instead of complaining and murmuring choose to be thankful. Because murmuring and complaining does hinder God’s blessings from flowing in your life, it opens a door for the enemy to attack you, you will end up making decisions out of the flesh, you will end up making the wrong choices because your foundation has not been right because you did not have a thankful heart after everything that God has done for you, so do not choose to complain but chose to be thankful.


The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:1 8 In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

When you make being grateful and giving thanks a lifestyle it’s going to open doors for you. Being thankful gives you favor in all you do, being thankful releases God’s blessings upon your life and everything that was so difficult for you to do becomes easy when you have a grateful heart.

So even in dark times give thanks, when your world is falling apart give thanks, when you have nothing to eat, when you have no place to go, when you can’t pay your bills, your sick and you’re on the verge of losing your home, when the worst comes to the worst give thanks because in doing so your blessings will come.

So no matter what situation you’re in, instead of looking at everything negative around you, instead of looking at everything that is not going right and complain about it, instead of just complaining about not having enough be grateful for what you already have because the more you are grateful for where you are now God is going to release an abundance of his favor and blessings upon your life and everything that you were lacking God will provide, everything that you have been struggling with God will help you overcome it all.

Murmuring is a form of complaining that creates a negative attitude towards the situation or the people around you, just look at the children of Israel in their murmuring the Israelites decided it would have been better to have died in Egypt. In their haste to return, they even attempted to stone the ones urging them to stop grumbling and trust in the Lord Numbers 14:2. God gave them a promise to the promised land , the promise would’ve taken them 11 days to get there but because of murmuring and complaining it took them 40 years. 

Can you imagine 40 years in the wilderness, you know many times we’ve done that to ourselves when God gave us a promise that would’ve taken us a short time to come to pass but it took us a long time to manifest because we were murmuring and complaining all through the journey.

So you’ve had to go around the same mountain over and over again because you were so ungrateful you and you were complaining all along the way and that delayed your promise and your blessings. But you can change all that by starting today and think of anything God has given you or done for you and be grateful.

Achieving our dreams and fulfilling our destiny is going to depend on how grateful you are where you’re at. A grateful heart opens doors that no man can shut, a grateful heart takes you places you’ve never been before because the more you are grateful of where you are now the more blessings God brings your way.

The more thankful you are, you will experience the joys of happiness and you will feel more love ,you will become more blessed , you with attract good friendships, you will attract good businesses, you will achieve everything you’ve ever dreamed of, you will you will excel far beyond your wildest dreams because you discovered the top most valuable secret and key to success and lacking nothing and that is gratitude and thanksgiving.

So above all be thankful, it’s not to late for you. You can change your life by being grateful every single day, I promise you it will change your life and your world forever.
Even the Bible clearly tells us in Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Have a blessed week. Share in the comments below what your thankful for. Stay inspired

Your Destiny is calling 

Whenever you find yourself asking these questions… Lord what have you called me to do, what’s my purpose, I really want to do your will and I don’t know what to do and where to start?

Just know destiny is calling. It’s in the asking, it’s in the desiring of something greater and seeking that you will find your predestined purpose that will lead you to your God given destiny.

Habakkuk 2:3 “For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.

In the beginning of time when God created you He put purpose and vision in you . So that when you grew up you would be able to walk in that vision and fulfill your destiny.

But many times the enemy has tried His best to try to destroy you, steal from you and robe you of your destiny. You know the devil is afraid of who God created you to be and He knows your destiny is great.

That’s why the devil is working so hard to distract you, kill your dreams overwhelm you with doubts, fill you with so much fear that you end up being afraid of your destiny.

The devil has used people to speak over your future by saying things like you will never make it, your not good enough, you will never achieve anything because your family has never achieved anything and the closed you in a box of their negative mindset and you have ended up wearing that mask of lies from the devil and it has affected you from dreaming again, hoping again ,believing again.

Are you in a dead state of mind and the future does not look possible and the false labels they put on you have killed your vision, your will power to dream again and walk into your God given destiny.

The devil is a liar, John 10:10 The devil comes only to steal and kill and destroy; God came so that you may have life, and have it to the full.

So if that’s you and the devil has robed you of your joy, your will , your power and your worth. God is saying it’s not over, Iam the God who created you and you are beautifully and wonderfully made by me.

You are who God says you are not what man says. Your destiny is blessed you are going to achieve everything your heart desires and what your dreaming about because greater is He that is in you than he that’s in the world.

With God on your side your dreams are possible, you will achieve your goals , you have a bright future a head of you , you will achieve the impossible says the lord. Everything you have gone through was meant to get you to this place stronger, mature, bold and confident to achieve and fulfill your destiny.

So wipe away the tears and be encouraged in this Psalm 30:5 weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 

Every sacrifice, every pain and hurt, every mockery and humiliation you have faced in this journey of life , you are not alone God has been walking it with you and His still with you. None of it is in vain. It’s worth it because God is turning your mess into a message, His giving you victory  and releasing His blessing in every area of your life.

You where born for such a time as this to fulfill your destiny.
