Are You Considering Your Destiny?

Posted by: | Comments (2)

  

Who are you? What is your purpose in life? People everywhere struggle to answer these questions.  Yet deep within every human heart there is a call to live with purpose, to live knowing you are doing what you were created to do.

Studies say that near the end of life, only 20% of people feel that they had accomplished what they were created to do. This is tragic on so many levels.

Life is meant to be lived fully, fully connected to God and His plans and purposes. Anything else is a lesser life and I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to settle for less. I want more. I want it all. All God has for me.

Getting Your Focus Back

Posted by: | Comments (0)

focus Have you ever found yourself feeling disconnected from God? Perhaps disgruntled? Depressed? Disillusioned?

In Psalm 73 we glimpse into the life of Asaph as he wakes up out of a spiritual sleep that had left him feeling all of that. He takes some time to unravel the threads that had bound him in negativity and shares his journey with us all.

We can almost feel his pain mingled with his relief as he shares:

Surely God is good to Israel,

    to those who are pure in heart.

2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;

    I had nearly lost my foothold.

Ever felt that way? Like you’d almost fallen into a dark place? Slipped off the edge and lost your faith?

Your True Heart is Your New Heart

Posted by: | Comments (0)

handheart For so many years of my life, I had a core belief that my heart was desperately wicked and if given the wrong opportunity, I would choose death instead of life. When I began to discover the truth that my heart was indeed good because I was in Christ, I moved away from a mindset of shame and guilt and have become increasingly free to be who I really am, a woman who loves God and loves others and loves myself.

What do you believe about your heart?

When you pause to consider who you really are, do you hear a voice whispering that you are a failure? A person whose heart is evil? Do you see your heart as a large chunk of real estate that is roped off as condemned?

Get Your Gratitude On

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Expressing gratitude is a key to living well. It opens our hearts to God and others, awakens our faith, and gives perspective to life.

Yet we often find ourselves stuck in the mire of discouragement, depression, hopelessness, resentment, and bitterness and expressing gratitude is the last thing we want to do and can feel very difficult to attempt.

Much easier is the choice to grumble, complain, doubt, fear, and expect to be disappointed both in God and in others.

Expressing gratitude removes the obstacles to seeing the wonder of life, the handiwork of God’s hands, and the beauty in people. The expression of gratitude leads us to experience gratitude. Experiencing gratitude changes us.
