Voices in My Head

Excerpt from a chapter in my soon to be released book.

This chapter is entitled REJUVENATE.  ENJOY.

Voices in My Head

Have you ever taken the time to think that the only person you can never get away from is yourself?  For some, that doesn’t seem so bad.  We live pretty good lives, we make a decent  living, our kids are somewhat well behaved and our friends are adequate.  But for others, the thought of not being able to get away from themselves is downright depressing.  I truly believe that’s why some folks end up as schizophrenics, manic depressants and the like.  The voices in their heads (tormenting thoughts, if you will) get so overwhelming that their minds literally take them away from themselves.  I’m surely no expert in this area and have no thesis or scientific leg to stand on except that the Holy Spirit told me.  (And that’s good enough for me.)

Truth is, if folks are not strong enough in their knowledge of who they are in Christ to combat the voice of the Enemy, then those voices will overtake them. The lies the Enemy tells them start to become their truth.  A portion of John 8:44 tell us that “When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

What are the voices in your head saying to you?  Is there enough of God’s truth in your head to be able to cast down those imaginations of the enemy and keep rising to the top, reaching your goals.  What are the voices in your head saying to you?

Think about it.  Be well my friends.

 

Too Many Questions

Over the past year or so, God has been amazing at providing me with answers to some questions I have.  Typically it’s something that doesn’t mean a hill of beans to anyone else but simply something I’m curious about. I have many questions for God when I get to heaven.  I’m sure you do too.

A few of my questions revolve around our senses.

When we close our eyes, we cannot see.  Is that because 2 Corinthians says “for we live by faith and not by sight”?  But when we try to shut out sound by closing our ears, why can’t we do that?  Is it because Romans tells us that “faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ”?

People say that we have two ears and one mouth because we should listen twice as much as we talk.  Ok, I can get with that one but is that the reason why?

Maybe I have too many questions.  Like, since we have command over the earth, why can we not fly like the birds and swim underwater for in definite periods of time?  Scientists say they are discovering new creatures all the time, how many different creatures are there?  Ok, here’s one…what day was Jesus really born? And then of course there’s the age old question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” 

All are good questions and one day they will all be answered. But for now, we continue to ponder these things.

What questions do you have for God?  Please leave your question in the comment section.  I’m sure God will hear you. And I’m certain, in time, He will answer.

Be well my friends.

I talked to God today

I talked to God today and he told me that this day is not about you.  He said,

This day is about your spouse.  This day is about your children.  This day is about your parents. This day is about your best friend. This day is about the guy in the car beside you. This day is about the woman down the hall in cubicle number four.

So when your spouse ignores you and our children are ungrateful and your parents don’t remember your name and your friend doesn’t call and the guy cuts you off and the woman lies on you, don’t fret. This day is not about you, God said, It’s about Me.

He said, You were created to praise Me. You were created to worship Me. You were created for Me. So count it all joy, rejoice in Me always, know that there is nothing too big for Me, know that I hear your heart when you put all of your hope and trust in Me. Know there is nothing too hard for Me. Know that with Me all things are possible. Know that I have plans for you, to prosper you and to give you a hope and a future.

When you talk directly to Love itself, what you get back is just that…LOVE.  LOVE is your bridegroom. LOVE is your friend. LOVE is your father.  LOVE will guide your footsteps and keep you in perfect peace. 

Did you talk to God today? What did LOVE say to you? Your comment may just be the one thing someone else needs to read today to make it through.

Be well my friends. All is well with God.  And when you are in Him all is well with you.

The Point of No Return

This is the point where it’s closer to finish than it is to go back to the beginning.

It’s like walking a 3 mile path.  Once you’re past the ½ way mark, you may as well finish.

Well I have to confess, I have a very deep fear.  After some serious soul searching, I finally realize exactly what I’m afraid of…I’m afraid of succeeding.  Here’s a quote that perfectly defines my fear.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson

Here’s another famous quote by a woman I admire, Joyce Meyer.  She says, “Do it afraid”.  Of all the things I’ve heard Joyce Meyer say, this is the one I remember the most.  Second to that is “to always put away your shopping cart” (teehee).

But now I’m at the point of no return.  I’m past the 1/2 way mark so I’m doing it afraid.  I’m launching the blog.  I’m finishing the book.  I’m starting the business.  I’m declaring to the world that my little light will shine.  My SON-light will shine.  It’s time for the glory of God that is within me to manifest.  I won’t hold back any longer.

“Go get it.  Go get your blessing.  It’s your time!”  Those lines are from one of my favorite Mary Mary songs.

So I claim it.  It’s my time.

And it’s your time too.  Maybe it’s something you’ve tried and you failed.  Are you afraid of it still?  What is it your time for?  Are you shying away from it? What is it your season to do?  Where are you to shine?  Share it with me.  Share it with the world.  Leave a comment and let the world know how brilliant, gorgeous, talented, wonderful and fabulous you are.  Your comment might inspire someone else to their own personal level of greatness.  Be well, my friends. Be well.
