Tips on how to stay calm and peaceful

Lately I have encountered a lot of things, disappointments and situations that have been trying to take my peace away. And some days where better than others . Then I got on my knees and prayed and said Lord I don’t want to feel this way.

I was feeling anxious and overwhelmed by what was happening then the Spirit of the lord reminded me not to be anxious for anything and that encouraged me. And I was reminded of the scripture in the Bible that says in Philippians 4:6-7Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

God was reminding me to be grateful and Not to be anxious and He would give me peace that surpasses all my understanding.

If you needing peace today in the midst of chaos and you’ve been feeling anxious and overwhelmed God is saying trust Him and He will give you peace beyond all understanding.

Sometimes it’s hard to understand why things happen in our lives the way they do but always remember God is in control of anything that you are facing and whatever is trying to still your joy. Just remember whatever your going through is the foundation of great and mighty things coming your way.

~Here are some of the tips that I have been practicing that have helped me stay calm and peaceful and I know they will help you to~

Pray when anxiety strikes

When you are feeling anxious, overwhelmed and have no peace pray and surrender you feelings and emotions to God and He will fill you up with the Spirit of peace and calm every storm in your life.

Read and meditate on God’s word

Instead of wallowing in fear and anxiety feed your spirit with God’s word of truth. Meditate on God’s word and in it you will get encouraged, empowered , hopeful and inspired to face whatever has be trying to steal your peace and with God on your side no weapon formed against you shall prosper.

Be patient

Patience is a virtue. When situations hit you have to remind yourself that this to shall pass. Seasons don’t last forever. Whatever your facing now is only going to make you stronger. You are living and walking in the preparation for your destiny. God has great plans for you so hold on to that. We live in a “me” and “now” generation, so the sooner you can learn to remain patient, the easier it will be to stay calm. Sometimes you just have to WAIT on the Lord.

Inner peace

It’s very important to train yourself to be peaceful on the inside and not try to acquire peace from the outside by trying to solve your anxieties with outward solutions. That would won’t last. You will still live in captivity of your emotions. Don’t get confused but remaining calm and peaceful is based on the inside, not by outward circumstances. Regardless of the the drama or crisis situation going on outside, you have control of the emotions going on inside. Just keep telling yourself that you are still in control of everything that is going on inside and that God has not brought this far to forsake you now.

Be Kind To Yourself

Love and be kind to yourself. Speak positively over yourself and encourage yourself. Many times I have said that it is important to like and love the person that is looking back at you in the mirror. Stop putting yourself down with negative self-talk. Respect yourself, your uniqueness , your talents, appearance, strengths and weaknesses. Being kind to yourself allows positive feelings to flow through your mind and that will produce peace in your life.

Forgive yourself and others.

Be quick to forgive yourself and others. When you forgive, it isn’t a sign of weakness and you aren’t condoning the action. Forgiveness allows you to put the situation behind you and turn off the constantly spinning wheels in your head. When you are wronged by another person or you wrong someone, you can’t ever take the words or actions back. Forgiveness is the only way of letting it all go. You will find out that Forgiveness brings about a peaceful calm within your soul. That is priceless.

Be thankful

Always be thankful. I know when you look in the mirror or around you, you will discover they are a lot of things to be thankful for. When you sense feelings of anxiety think of something thing good that has happened to you and be thankful. Thank God that you are a live, well and still breathing. You are going to hit rough patches many times in your journey through life but count it all joy and know that the battle is not yours but the lords. And remember in all things give thanks and know that God is always on your side and that will keep you peaceful and calm.

I pray these tips will help you like they have helped me. If you have any tips that have helped you stay peaceful that you would love to share please leave me a comment below.

Stay motivated and inspired

When you spend time with God He will reveal to you who you really are and your relationship will mature. The bible says Rejoice always,  pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.

The Bible says Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. When you seek God He will reward you.

So i pray that God will give you the strength, the power and focus to live a prayerful lifestyle and dwell daily in his presence in Jesus name Amen.

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

Overcoming insecurities 

Trust that God makes no mistakes: Before you were in your mothers womb God knew you. He knew who you were going to become and He called you beautiful. Everything about you is beautiful, that alone should give you the confidence. There shouldn’t be any room of insecurity about who you are and who God created you to be.
Most of the times, especially women! we tend to look at ourselves and try to find what’s wrong with our physical appearance instead of embracing our uniqueness of who God created us to be. Every time you speak or see something negative about you or you don’t appreciate and recognize who God created you to be, you are actually saying to God that He made a mistake when He created you. God makes no mistakes. You were uniquely created and crafted by God and He made you perfect in His image.

So don’t allow the enemy to create thoughts of doubt about your identity. Resist and remove the insecure thoughts out of your mind and heart that cause you to feel that you are less than and cause you to think your are not enough and make you feel you are not beautiful. You are God’s reflection and everything beautiful God is, you are. The Bible says…I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well…Psalms 139:14.
So be confident and bold and embrace who God created you to be. God wants you to be confident, bold, fearless and free. He wants you to be healthy and whole-fully able to pursue your destiny. And He desires for you to feel good about yourself and your relationship with Him.

Stop comparing yourself with others: Be the original you. God made you an original and He has Great plans just for you. When you are insecure you tend to compare yourself with others and try to keep up with them. It’s exhausting and just leads to frustration. I remember long time ago when I was younger and was discovering who I was I used to compare myself to others until I found God through seeking Him and reading the Bible I discovered I was enough and beautiful just the way I was and my security was in God. Most of all His unconditional love was always present. That was a life changing moment. I leant how to love me, believe in me and God filled me up with confidence and security in Him. He can do the same for you today. Ask Him and He will transform your life.


Discover who you are in Christ: Most of the time ladies when insecurity occurs in our lives it’s because we have not discovered who we are in Christ and we start comparing ourselves to others. What you think is different about you actually it’s what makes you beautiful and unique. Embrace your uniqueness and Know your security is in God not man and material things.

No more fear and doubt: May be some of you started doubting yourselves because of what your friends, loved ones and family members said about you. Maybe they called you ugly, fat and they said the meanest things about your physical appearance that made you doubt yourself. When people attack you physical appearance most of the time they are insecure about who they are and they want to impose their insecurities on you which causes them to act out in a certain way. Remember hurt people hurt people. So forgive them , forgive yourself, love yourself because God loves you. Today is the day for emotional healing in your life. Delete every negative and insecure files out of the memory of your mind and heart and know God calls you beautiful and He loves you just the way you are because you are like God. He created you in His perfect image.

Many times we focus on ourselves when we should be focused on God. We focus on our weakness, faults and everything we have done wrong and feed on that which creates a mentality of failure. Which makes you feel not good enough and you start thinking you can’t achieve anything which leads to more insecurities. No more! ..The Bible says…He said to me: My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me… 2 Corinthians 12:9 

God wants you to feel good about yourself. He wants you to be bold, confident, to be fearless, to walk in His power, believe Him for big things and be secure in Him always.



Trust God with your heart, insecurities, fears and anything that’s hindering you from walking into your divine destiny and let God heal you and transform your life . Because you are beautifully and wonderfully made by God, great is His works.

Many blessings, stay inspired, stay motivated to pursue your dreams and walk into your God given destiny in Jesus name.

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.

God Provides!

And my God will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19.

Do not give up do not throw in the towel whatever God promised you He is going to provide. God is faithful to His word to you and He always fulfills His promises. He will always provide for you no matter what because He is not man that he should lie.

Have you been going through a dry spell in your life?, has your life been turned up and down, have you been disappointed over and over again?. Have you lost all hope in your dreams and your goals and you feel like nothing is ever going to happen for you?. 

Psalm 119:89 says, “Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. 

 In John 6:35, Jesus said, “I am the bread of life: he that comes to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst.”

So whatever dry spell you have been under don’t give up because God will never give up on you. In Him young will never go hungry or thirst again. He is going to see you through and you are going to come out of this season stronger, better and wiser because God is turning every bad thing that ever happened to you for your good because He alone is faithful always to His promises.

So whatever you do not have, whatever your need is ask God, trust in Him, believe and He will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. 

In Matthew 7:7-8, He promises, “Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.”

So don’t be anxious for nothing because if God can take are of the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea how much more will He take care of you His beloved child. Be encouraged today and know that God’s got you and He will never leave you defenseless, He will always come to your rescue. It might not be in your timing but in God’s timing because He always shows up on time and at the right time. 

 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Mathew 6:25. (Let this be your mediation verse this week when ever your feeling anxious about anything).

Stay motivated, inspired and empowered to purse your dreams and never give up.

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.

THANKFUL 

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalms 100:4

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 love is Loyal

From the raising of the sun to the going down of the same God’s love is loyal. Many times that you have fallen short, God’s love has always been there for you. Even as you take a minute and reflect on your life and how far God has brought you from you will realize if it was not for God you wouldn’t have made it this far.

Psalms 36:5-9 (The Message bible) God’s love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic, His purpose titanic, his verdicts oceanic.Yet in his largeness nothing gets lost; Not a man, not a mouse, slips through the cracks. How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings,To eat our fill at the banquet you spread as you fill our tankards with Eden spring water. You’re a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light.

Do you have Aha! moments when you think about how God’s love has always been constant, unconditional and loyal even when you where not loyal to God. His love for you has never wavered not matter what you have done. God’s love for you is not measured by your actions because He is all knowing God , He knows our actions before we act but He loves us anyway.

When i look at my life and how far God has brought me from i can’t help but say thank you Lord ,I have many Aha! moments where God’s love for me has surpassed my understanding. He has indeed been faithful to me, loved me unconditional. His love for me has always been loyal. He has always been there for me anytime i have needed Him and i believe He has been there for you to.

To anyone thats reading these writings from God’s heart to yours and you are wondering if God loves you, the answer is yes yes and yes, He loves you. Even before you where in your mothers womb He loved you then and still loves you now, God has never changed His mind about you.

No matter how many times you have felt unworthy, less than and the many nights you have cried yourself to sleep, Gods love has never left your side and His not planning to leave you now. Trust in Gods loyalty you will always feel loved because you are indeed loved by God.

Whenever your world falls apart , you feel misunderstood ,confused, lost, overwhelmed, depressed or anything that has stolen your joy, smile and innocence, i want you know God’s love is constant, unwavering , faithful, He will never leave your side , You can never out run His grace for you, trust Him today. No matter what you  are going through you are safer in His arms, He will never let you break, nor leave or never forsake you. His love for you will always forever be loyal.

Stay encouraged, motivated and inspired!
