Patience, Gratefulness & Worship!

On this journey God has placed me on I have acquired certain attitudes about life and God’s Plan. Attitudes that I believe are skills needed to get me through each level of increase God brings. Each level of increase consists of a process before the manifestation, the process although it can be difficult builds me up, makes my spirit stronger and teaches me key components that I will need once I reach the next level of increase. It is tough to see the value in the process while I’m in it but towards the end I see how God has added value to my life and my journey.

One of the most valuable skills I have learned is Patience. God has taught me the art of waiting. Timing is so intricate within God’s plan, everything is done at a specific time or within a season. I may not always understand it but the results of my Patience has been amazing thus far. I always remind myself in the times I become impatient that God knows what He is doing and I have allowed Him to have full control over my life. I have came this far because of God and He knows what is best for me. With Patience comes trust, trusting God through every situation and to solve every problem is important. There is nothing too hard for God and nothing He can’t do!

After learning Patience I’ve learned to have a attitude of Gratitude! Continuing to be Grateful for all I have now instead of worrying about what I don’t have and what I want to have in the future. Now don’t get me wrong I am a forward thinking person, I take time to meditate on my future and my goals. But I also make sure I am consistently being Grateful to God for increasing me from where I used to be. If you can show God you are Grateful with what He has blessed you with now, He knows He can trust you and bless you with more! I don’t take anything for granted from waking up everyday with Divine health and in my right mind to crossing paths with people who are meant to be in my life. I like to call it Divine Intervention, everything is for a reason.

Lastly I have recently gotten a deeper revelation of what it means to Worship! Worshiping God doesn’t have to mean what someone else says it means, but what it means to me which is having a special honor and reverence for God. In other words a special respect that you have for God that you don’t have for anyone else. Pastor Bridget Hilliard of New Light Christian Center explained it this way at the Women’s Conference this past week. This got me to thinking about my personal relationship with God and what it means. How I have come to know and love God so much that I trust Him in every area of my life! So I decided why Worship God only when you are going through something or on Sundays when you attend church. I’ve decided to show God how much He means to me daily, so I now include Worship in my routine. God means so much to me and I love to show Him the honor and place He holds in my life! Also Worship changes things! Since I’ve added Worship in my daily routine God always gives my spirit exactly what it needs to keep going, to stay strong and to accomplish my goals that day! I love it! The wonderful thing about God is He has so much to give us even if we don’t ask for anything and when we do ask for something He gives us more! Come On, who wouldn’t want to Worship a God like that!?! He is The Only God Like That!

Life has so many things going on, things to do, places to go, people to see, difficulties that arise but God is constant, always there, never changing, always loving, unending and everything we will ever need forever! I am more than ecstatic to know​ Him, love Him and have Him at the center of my life and everything I do! If He has taught me this much as of now, just imagine how much more He will teach me and show me! With God as the head of my life, I can master my life’s journey, be the woman He created me to be and fulfill my God given purpose on this Earth! And You Can Too!

A Prosperous Mindset!

The most important thing that we can control is our thinking. How we think can cause our lives to be the best, set trends, develop great ideas and turn our dreams into reality. The way in which we think should always be positive, forward thinking and dream pursuing. If we allow negativity and the opinions of others to shape our thoughts this can have a great impact on our lives now in the present and the future.

I choose to have a Prosperous Mindset! When people think about prosperity it usually means they are talking about money, but money is not the key to happiness or fulfillment. Yes, we need money to live a prosperous life but it is not the only attribute needed, prosperity is much more than that! In previous blogs I have written about life fulfillment, all the aspects needed to live a full life with no voids. When I think of being prosperous that is what I am thinking of! A life with no voids, fulfilled in every area of my life! Now that is Prosperity! In order for us to achieve living a life of prosperity we  must have a Prosperous Mindset!

As humans thoughts flow through our heads freely by the minute, but we can control what thoughts we dwell on and which ones we choose not to. Life can have it’s difficult moments, we can become angry or sad but even in those moments it is critical to try to think positively. I know from my own experience that no matter how much of a positive person you are foolish people who do foolish things will cross your path. It has happened to me more than you would think. But it is how we handle these situations that allow us to continue to think in a Prosperous way! For example some people may think a bad thought and say to themselves, “What Would Jesus Do?” It is always a good thing to question your bad thoughts. God made us with a conscious, He created us to know what the difference is between right and wrong. This is why if you make a mistake or do something wrong you instantly feel remorse. This is not something that has to be taught, He created us this way. God also created us with the freedom to choose for ourselves! The choice is always ours, so therefore we have the power to change and renew our thinking so that it positively affects our lives!

A saying that we have all heard “Sky Is The Limit” is not just a saying it is a Prosperous Mindset! Your thoughts are where dreams are created, ideas are made and choices are decided. God says we can have what we say and before we say things we definitely think them! So make it a point to pay attention to your thinking and if your mindset is anything other than positive or prosperous you should renew your thinking and watch how your life increases! We naturally attract what we think about! With a Prosperous Mindset your dreams will be your reality!

Happy Thursday! 🙂
