SHIFT YOUR FOCUS!!

I don’t know about you, but there are times in my life where I find myself thinking back on my life journey and having regrets.

It would be so great if everything I have done and everything I have said was perfect. It would be so great to have no regrets…to not have a burden for things that highlight what an imperfect, flawed, and weak vessel that I was and continue to be.

I am not perfect. But, I know One who is! Jesus Christ, my beloved Lord and Savior, is perfect in all that He says and does!

I am so humbled and thankful that He loves me in spite of all of my weaknesses and flaws. I am so humbled that He still can use me for His glory in spite of all of the things that I do wrong.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

And I am comforted in knowing that He has used all of my mistakes and “regrets” to help mold and shape me into who He is calling me to be!

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)

Brothers and Sisters, if you are going through a time of regret, don’t let it stop you from forging ahead and answering the call of God on your life!  God doesn’t focus on what we lack…He focuses on who we are to become in and through Him!  And we are not to focus on what we lack…but we are to focus on all that we have through His abundance!

So!  Today I choose to shift my focus away from myself and all of what I am not…and I choose to align myself with God and shift my focus onto all that I am through His amazing grace and through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit!!

Will you join me?  One, two, three…..SHIFT!!

I AM CALLING YOU!

I hear the Lord saying:

“My Spirit within you makes you MORE than a conqueror–so don’t settle for just getting by.

My Spirit within you equips you to do GREATER works than I did while walking this earth–so don’t underestimate your value in the kingdom.

Stop trusting your ability and start trusting MINE!

I AM calling you…”

Are You WILLING?

Don’t think that the Lord can’t use you until you have it “all together!” He knows every fault…He knows every weakness…and He still wants to use us!! He doesn’t choose to use us for His Glory because of who WE are — but He chooses to use us because of who HE is!! Christ in us, the hope of glory, wants to flow through you this day. All we have to be is WILLING!!

RISE UP!

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”    Philippians‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

We are told in Scripture to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ.  (2 Corinthians 10:5). Our mind is indeed a “battlefield.”  Satan loves it when we focus on everything wrong in our lives. He loves it when we focus on our past mistakes and let those mistakes stop us from going forward in Christ. He loves it when we wallow in self pity and see ourselves as less than who we truly are – who Jesus says we are!

We are more than conquerors; We are chosen and dearly loved; We are the bride of Christ; We are empowered through the Holy Spirit to be who the Lord has called us to be and to do what we have been called to do!

Rise up, warriors of the Most High God!  Get out of the pit of despair and frustration and regret and lift up your eyes and see your destiny!!

Cut off the chains that are holding you back!

Shake the dust from your feet and go forward in God’s Love and Power!  


Who Are You?

Who are you? Your identity is who GOD says you are!  

Brothers and Sisters, do not let people tell you who you are. Do not let circumstances tell you who you are. 

God, and He alone, knows who you truly are!

WHEN YOU LIMIT YOURSELF~YOU LIMIT GOD!

Do you hear Him calling you to greater things? Things that you have never considered doing in the Kingdom?  

Have faith! He only needs your willingness and He will equip you for the call!! Hallelujah!

Are you willing?
