Clarity: What Do You Want And Why?

Do you have clarity about what you want and why?

What Is Clarity?
Clarity is knowing what you want and why. Clarity is not the absence of fear; It is the ability to own your stuff while being present in your own life.  

What do you want and why. Isn’t that what we are all trying to figure out? When you understand your what and why – the answer will come.

Knowing what you want is just not enough. Most people know what they want, but not why. Knowing why is just as important. Your why is what will keep you motivated when you’re discouraged. Your why is what gets you up when others have given up on their goals. When life throws you a curve ball, you are able to dig deep, remain calm and focused, and scale the storms of life. Your why is your secret weapon.

Why do you want to get married?
Why do you want to buy a house vs a condo?
Why do you want children?
Why do you want to lose weight?

Imagine a life of clarity: A life of less regret, confusion, over thinking and rehashing the past. Who doesn’t want that? As life dishes out challenges, you are able to make decisions from a place of clarity, truth, and peace. 

Clarity brings calm and order to a chaotic life. Clarity walks hand in hand with peace. Clarity produces confidence and determination to pursue your desires, giving you wings to fly to your destiny.

Feeling stuck and hopeless, doubts and confusion are deeply rooted in FEAR and lack of clarity. You’ve lived long enough to know that life is full of obstacles and disappointments. Many ideas, dreams, and visions are crushed under the mountains of doubt, fear, and frustration. Hopes have been dashed and dreams buried alive.

Welcome to the real world: Where how you start does not determine how you finish
and the fastest runner does not alway win the race.

The entrance of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130.

The Word of God gives clarity and is applicable to every area of our lives. God knows just what you need. Even in the midst of confusion, fear, chaos and anguish. Trust God. Walk by faith and not by sight. God is faithful to you no matter what. Once you’re clear about your goals and why your life will flow better.

Fear and Faith cannot coexist together. Faith paints a bright picture of the future, while fear creates the worst picture of what may happen. Exercise your faith today!

You cannot overcome all your fears all at once. Neither should you attempt to plan all your life at a sitting. The beauty of life is God’s mercies are new every morning, let Him handle all your tomorrows, today is all you have. Take it one step at a time. Put your thinking cap on and write as God gives revelation.

Everyone is afraid of something; you are not alone. The good news is you don’t
have to overcome
 every fear at once. Focus on overcoming the fear that
stands between you and your destiny. 

Relationships
Clarity will help you determine who remains in your life and who doesn’t. When you have clarity, you don’t fight about it, you simply decide and move on.

Personal Responsibility
When you know Whose you are and why you were created, you make better decisions, own your stuff and don’t blame others.

Personal Accountability 
Knowing what you want and why helps you to have faith in God and your judgment. You will no longer have to prove anything to others.

What Clarity Is Not.
Clarity is not waiting to have the entire picture. It’s simply filling in the blanks as you have it. As things present themselves answers will come.
 
Clarity is not about others: it’s personal. It’s not your responsibility to decide what other people do. It’s about you taking ownership of your actions.
 
Clarity is not the pursuit of perfection. It’s embracing imperfections knowing that whatever the outcome you will be fine. 
 
Clarity is not a dogma, permission, validation or acceptance from others. It’s not a popular belief.
 
Clarity is not predicting the future. Clarity is in the now and here because that’s all you have. The future cannot be accurately predicted, only guesses.
 
Clarity is not always an easy option, the path to clarity brings peace and truth. 
 
Clarity is not denial: it’s a choice.
 
Prayer:
May the Lord give you clarity and a sound mind. Amen.

This World Is Not Your Home You Are A Visiting Guest

It’s easy to get worked up and forget that this world is not your home you are a visiting guest. Savor the memories and pack light! My friend, you are passing through, this isn’t your final destination!

Life is a temporary experience to be enjoyed, not held on to.
Don’t take life too seriously.
 Do not let life have you, hold loosely
to the things of the world; otherwise,
it would break you.

Life is too vast for you to handle by yourself. The world was here before you and will remain after you are gone. The cares, burdens, and worries of this world are not for you to carry: It will break your heart, body, and spirit if you try. This world is not your home, you are a visiting guest. Savor the memories and pack light!

Set your mind and keep focused habitually on the things above [the heavenly things], not on things that are on the earth [which have only temporal value]. Colossians 3:2, (AMP)

Life is full of uncertainty, but nothing is a surprise to God. He holds the whole world in His hands. Set your mind and affection on Christ alone. Love what God loves, and hate what He hates.

Giving Up Is Not An Option!

Giving up is not an option for me. I’ve been there before and it’s not a pretty place. It’s dark, lonely and depressing. I’m not going back! I pray and hope you’ll never find yourself there. May you never give up on yourself, family, friends, hopes and dreams.

For some of us it takes many times to get it right. But who is counting, judging and pointing a finger? Not Jesus!. Pick yourself up and try again and again. Never give up! Winners never quit!

Others may have given up, you don’t have to. Your trust is in the Maker of heaven and earth, the Ruler of everything.

Don’t give up simply because life doesn’t make sense. Life is best lived forward but understood backward. Your life is in God’s hands and He will direct your path.

Whenever the thought of giving up comes to your mind. Think of all the naysayers who told you “you will not succeed” and those who did not support you. That should fill you up with renewed energy to carry on. Everyone serves a purpose in your life, use it effectively!

Opposition may delay your dream, but they cannot kill your dream. If you don’t give up. The opposition to your dream today, may also position you ahead to fulfill your dream. If you don’t give up!

PRAYER: Dear God, Thank You for the ways and times You’ve been faithful. So many times I’ve doubted You. But God, your love is relentless, never give up on me. So many times I’ve felt unworthy. Thank You for the countless times and chances you have made a way when it looks like a dead-end. You are worthy of praise and honor. Amen!

We Need One Another

You are not alone. All our lives are interwoven. Don’t believe the lies that you don’t need anyone and you can do life by yourself. God loves to use people to further His Kingdom assignment. You are part of God’s big plan. Don’t go it alone! We need one another.

Don’t Do Life Alone
You are not designed to function in isolation. You are wired for fellowship and relationship with God and His children. You are part of a body; an incomplete body cannot perform to its full potential. You matter!

You cannot accomplish the plans, visions and dreams God has birth in you alone. Throughout the bible we read how God used people for His purpose. Love, cherish and honor the people God has placed in your life!

You are not called to do life alone. Invest your time wisely with people who are going in the same direction as you. Love, Friendship, Favor, Transformation, Growth, Empowerment and a new lease on Life await you! Connect & Thrive.

If we treat each other like brothers & sisters instead of tearing one another apart, the world will be a better place for all to live in.

It Is Finished

When He had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, He bowed his head
and gave up His spirit. John 19:30, NIV.

Jesus was betrayed and crucified on the cross for NOTHING. Yet, While on the same cross He forgave all, while in excruciating pain! My brothers & sisters, LET IT GO. You were created by a loving and merciful God, and you have it in you to forgive everyone. Don’t spend another day dwelling on the past. It’s Over. Let it GO. You’re an Overcomer!

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34 NIV)

There is nothing anyone has ever done to you that is as painful as Christ enduring the Cross. Keep your eyes on Jesus Christ and the price He paid for you. Forgive, let go and let God!

Jesus didn’t hang on the cross so you can be pressed down & depressed. He died to set you free from bondage that you may have life: ABUNDANT life.

Christ’s love towards you is BOLD, POWERFUL & EVERLASTING! He hung on the cross unashamed & boldly displayed His everlasting love just for YOU! Wow! You are deemed worthy of every drop of blood shed on Calvary.

Jesus fulfilled His assignment on earth by laying down His life for us. He took away our shame and sin. He wiped away our past and gave us a clean slate to start afresh. Walk in the freedom that only Christ can give you today by extending grace and love to others.

Make it a happy and memorable Easter by walking in love and forgiveness, starting with yourself and others.

Prayer
Dear Lord, Thank You for laying Your life down for me. Thank You for taking my place on Calvary. Thank you for every pain and disease inflicted on You for my sin. This kind of love is too deep for me to understand, beyond comprehension, Thank You Lord JESUS. Today I forgive myself and others and I pick up my cross and follow you. Amen.

Are You Tuned In To God’s Frequency?

Are You Operating On God’s Frequency?


God knows what you need and when you need it.  A word from God will not only change your life but your generation. Just as a mother can hear the cry of her baby from a distance, you too can hear God’s voice. Can you hear His voice? There is a frequency specially reserved for you to hear from God.  Will you tune in today?

Turning inward to God enable us to tune out other voices and noises from outside and hear God’s voice with clarity

It’s not too late to learn how to hear God’s voice. And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. John 10:16, ESV.

How Can I Hear God’s Voice?

– My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27, ESV.
Firstly, you must be born again and a true follower of Christ. Christianity is more than a box on a form and church attendance. Christianity is a personal relationship with Christ and a way of life.

– So watch yourselves. “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. Luke 17:3, NIV.
Repentance and Forgiveness. Repentance mean to change your mind. To hate what God hates and love what He loves. When you hold unforgiveness in your heart, God cannot fight your battle: Because two wrongs don’t make a right. Forgive all, Let bygones be gone.

– Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.   Jeremiah 33:3, ESV.
Seek God in prayer. Prayer is a place of intimacy with God. God relates to us differently and the more time you spend in prayer with Him will give you greater revelation of who God is. You need to know God for yourself.

– So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. Romans 10:17, ESV.
You must have faith in God. God has given you a measure of faith. You are full of Dunamis – POWER! After planting the word in your heart, you must believe and step out in Faith. Ask the Holy Spirit to increase your faith.You have it in you!

– But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22, ESV.
Study and obey the word of God. Don’t just memorize scriptures. Study the word. Let it take root in your life. Be rooted and grounded in the word of God. Have a solid strong foundation that will stand the test of time.

– Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! Psalm 27:14, ESV.
Finally, Be still and wait on God. Wait prayerfully. Wait in expectation. Wait in joyful hope. Wait in quietness and confidence. Wait without wavering. Delay is not denial, don’t let circumstances and people talk you out of your expectations. 

Are you tuned in to God’s channel or the world’s network? Whatever channel you are tuned into speaks the loudest.

April – Happy New Month!

WISHING YOU A HAPPY NEW MONTH – APRIL! 

The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
(Psalm 16:6, ESV)


My prayer for you this month is that may you discover,  pursue and fulfill the will of God for your life.
May the Lord grant you His favor, mercy and loving-kindness as you seek Him.

In this new month, may the Lord go before you and be your Rear Guard. New month, New doors of opportunity open wide for you everywhere. May our cup overflow with His goodness, mercy & joy.
The Lord is your wall of protection and nothing shall harm you and your family in Jesus name. Amen!

Just think….. All the Endless Possibilities a new month brings.
God’s future plans for you are better than what’s behind you.

Who You Are Today Is not Who You Will Be Tomorrow

Be careful the path you travel and the company you keep. Who you are today is not who you will be tomorrow. Your values, beliefs and choices will change. 

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter;
And all of us are the work of Your hand. (Isaiah 64:8) 

God Is Still Working on You!
You are a Work In Progress, God is not done with you yet. As you continue to work on yourself, allow God to prune every area of your life that is not bearing fruit.  

QOTD: Stop Trying To Blend In, You Are Not A Chameleon.

Don’t be afraid to stand-alone and be different from others. Stop trying to blend in, you are not a chameleon. You are amazing just the way you are!

 

It’s About Relationship, Not Religion.

It’s about Relationship. That’s it in a nutshell. It’s not about religion. It’s all about a personal relationship with God. He is not after your money, only a relationship with you. Everything you have comes from God, you can keep what you have.

Your Past Does Not Disqualify You.


Your past only disqualifies you with those who are not a part of your destiny.


Your past stays in the past with those who God has called to help you. Those who are not willing to play a significant part in your destiny will find fault and point out all the negatives why you can’t succeed. Note them, but don’t lose sleep over them. Where you are going, they can’t get you there. Even if you are Jesus they would not still support you. Not everyone is for you or on your side. Those who are for you will cross the ocean to cast their support because it’s in their DNA to do so. They see the new YOU because they’ve walked in your shoes and are recipient of God’s grace.

Your past does not disqualify you before God. Don’t disqualify yourself, you are not the person you used to be. See yourself as a new creation in Christ. God is doing a new thing in you, see yourself overcoming against the odds, dig your heels in.

Kingdom Business: God Is Counting On You

“And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten minas and said to them,
‘Do business with this until I come back.’ Luke 19:13

Kingdom Business
A new day has arrived and God is releasing a greater understanding of destiny and purpose throughout the earth. Take your place in God’s army ready to do kingdom business for the King of kings. Today is the time for His Beloved to Shine! Shine His light throughout the dark corners of the earth. God is counting on you today to SHINE!

There Is No Joy In Living Someone Else’s Dream

There is no joy in living someone else’s dream. Follow your chosen path. It may not make others happy, at least you’ll be happy!

 

Who Are My People?

Jesus asked, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” (Matthew 12:48, NLT)
Here is a question for you to answer yourself. 

I was invited to a gathering of believers, hosted by a church. In the course of getting to know other people as we do – the question “which church do you attend” came up. I was happy to let them know that I am a fellow believer and briefly told them about my church. And here is where things became awkward. At least for me it was awkward; I didn’t anticipate the next question. It’s not like I’ve been living under a rock since I gave my life to Christ. I mingled mostly in Christian circles and I love all people of faith, Seekers, New Age and Non-believers. What is there not to love about people! I’ve walked in many shoes and it takes one to know one.

What is the question I hear you ask!  “Why don’t you fellowship with our people?

Aha! In this day and age? Seriously! Super Awkward – I was so stunned and speechless. I thought to myself “Who are my peeps? And I immediately realize that I do not have the time and patience to give a proper answer, I simply nod my head, smile and move on.

Don’t ever let people define you or put you in a box. Who are my peeps? What do they look like? Where do they live? Even in the body of Christ there is disunity. This shouldn’t be so. We are one in Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:27)

My People Are;


My people are the children of God from all nations and tongues. Their message is love. Their language is peace.Their culture is honor and diversity. They come in different age, color and nationality. And within them they carry the light of Christ. They are everywhere and when
I’m with them, I am home.
 
And together we are doing life because we know whose we are.


Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)

Be Yourself: It’s So Much Easier

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. (Psalm 139:14) When the world does not understand you, they’ll put you in a box. They did the same to Jesus. It’s perfectly normal, Jesus was rejected and falsely charged.  John 10:10 – Many of them said, “He has a demon, and is insane; why listen to him?”

If you are in Christ, then expect some rejection or disapproval every now and again. Jesus’ Approval is ALL you need. 


Be yourself! It’s so much easier. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. 



They may call you weird, a Geek, Jesus Freak, Holier than though, a Nerd, Bible Thumper. And so many other names and boxes the world would attempt to put you. Consider it as a compliment. God made you for Himself, not man. Don’t let the name-calling get you down. Let Christ’s love be seen through you. You are ahead of your time. Be You!

Prayer: Grace To Forgive and Heal From Every Pain.

Dear Lord,
Please touch the heart of everyone reading this prayer. You know us by name and all our needs are before you.

Heal our hearts, let us not be deceived, but help us to walk in Your love. Lord, help us to forgive those who have hurt us, especially those we may have thought do not deserve our forgiveness.

Grant us the grace to forgive, heal and forget every pain and wrong done to us. Heal our brokenness and help us to love and trust again. May our hearts be open and tender towards others and may Your loving kindness flow through us once again in Jesus name. Amen.

Today, we receive Your love, power and grace to forgive and start afresh. Our spirit is renewed, cleansed of all unrighteousness by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Today is Your day: This Is Your Time and Season

Hi Everyone, I’m praying WISDOM, STRENGTH and BOLDNESS over you for all the awesomeness God has in store for you. Go. Be Amazing!


Today is your day, this is your time and season. You will move from glory to glory,
success to success and breakthrough to breakthrough. 


God Is Not Trying To Ruin Your Street Cred

They will label you as proud and arrogant for having high standards. Never you mind, keep moving forward with your high standards. They will thank you later for showing them a better way.


Every sacrifice you make to follow God is for your own good.
God is not trying to ruin your street cred. 


Keep Walking In Love

Be watchful and vigilant for subtle ways the enemy will attempt to sow discord among friends. Don’t take the bait! Be wise, and keep walking in love.

Do not give place to the devil. Ephesians 4:27

The enemy has caused great confusion among believers, by keeping us busy attacking each other, instead of, fighting together against him. Your friends & family are not the real enemy, the devil is!

Don’t give the enemy a foothold into your life by harboring negative thoughts and feelings about others. Be quick to forgive and let go. Fight with love, hoping to win their heart rather than being right or scoring points. Keep walking in love even when unjustly provoked. 


Open hearts, open hands. Keep walking in love. 


 

Don’t Be Ashamed Of Your Brokenness.

I take life way too seriously and easily I could be my own biggest critic. Through the love of Christ I’m learning that my brokenness will be made whole when I give it to God. It’s an ongoing journey of daily renewing of my mind. I am learning to handle myself with love, kindness and gentleness. Loving myself faults and all, changes the way I see myself and love others.


You are a human being with emotions.
Don’t be ashamed of your brokenness.
Flesh and blood is susceptible to wear and tear.
Healing and self-care brings clarity and wholeness.


My brokenness is made whole when I give it to God
