WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

Making Deposits

                      BE BLESSED!

Releasing Control

All of us have to deal with fear some time or the other. But when fear emerges in our hearts, it feeds our doubts. And before we know it, we're attempting to control things to get our fear under control. We must learn to respond to fear with faith. Below are a list of scriptures that will help. Be Blessed!

*2 Timothy 1:7 - For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

*Isaiah 41:10 - Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strenghthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Stay True To Yourself

Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.
                 Phillip Sweet

Enjoy Your Life

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
                       Earl Nightingale

Words Of Encouragement

Don't let a temporary emotion cloud your judgment!

Never make a permanent decision based on a temporary storm. No matter how raging the billows are today, remind yourself: "This too shall pass!"
                                           T D Jakes

The Goodness Of The Lord

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
                                                            Psalm 23:6

Back in early 2017, I developed a cough. In the beginning, I thought I was getting a cold. Because I am not one who likes to take medicine, my first choice of remedy was to start taking Vitamin C.

Rise Up

Let you speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
                                                                Colossians 4:6 (KJV)

I received a text message of a screen shot from someone close to me. The screen shot was of comments being made about an incident that involved the person recently.

Be Thankful

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
                                                 Psalm 100:4

A truly thankful person is a truly peaceful person. They've created a habit, that no matter what, they will notice, pause, and choose- choosing to be thankful regardless of the circumstances.

As Thanksgiving Day is approaching, let us choose to notice something for which we can be thankful for; pause, so that we can acknowledge this something as a reminder of the presence of God; and choose to focus on God's presence until His peace is unleashed in our lives.

Possessions As Masters

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
                                            Matthew 6:21

Have you ever notice how the material things we possess have become our masters instead of us mastering them. We make purchases based on our desires-homes, cars, cell phones, computer gadgets, etc., only to find that the very thing we had to have is the thing or things that's stressing us out.

Loyal To Dysfunction

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he....
                          Proverbs 23:7

I read this article in Home Business Magazine titled,  New Habits: Break Out of That Rut which stated that "fear and self-limiting beliefs create imaginary boundaries that keep us from acting in our own best interest." Reason being is that our brain is wired to resist change. Getting stuck in a rut doesn't happen overnight, but slowly over a period of time as we think or behave in the same way.
