Don't overrate your brain
I woke up this morning with a special kind of inkling in my spirit about faith. It dawned on me that the reason why majority of us find faith too difficult is because we are "brainy". God has the greatest sense of humor you will ever know, he tells us things that are logically impossible and asks us to believe it. But because we as human in our nature are logical beings and always want our decisions to make sense then we keep seeing the things we ought to believe God for as too ridiculous because they are not sounding or looking smart or logical and this is the reason why so many of us Christians have missed so many things God already reserved and preserved for us. Never you think again that faith will make sense. Why should it? The God in whom u ought to have faith in created the brain you are using to analyse him, so don't you think it will be an error if the creature(brain of yours) can grasp the way of its creator(God). You see that's why faith in God will never always make brain. For God to really be God he must not operate in the crevices where your brain can totally fathom or else he is not God. I know you are brainy and cerebral but I think you are giving too much credit to your brain and as thus highly overrating it. Logical or not, rational or not JUST BELIEVE GOD!

Intentionally saved this image for today. As you go into 2018, there are some relationships, belief systems, habits, limits and perspectives that must be left behind. If you don't, you will never get to where you need to go in this new season. #StretchForward#NoLimits

If there were ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, it is now.
Not for any grand cause, necessary but for something that tugs at your heart and that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.

The Vision............. .................. ...............
-A ballerina's prayer-
Lord allow me to truly stretch forward & give my all everyday. Unfold the life that you want me to live. Make me aware of my possibilities. Work through me like never before. Reveal to me more of my talents. Manifest your glory. Make your presence known and hold my hand tightly as I go higher and walk in new territory that is unfamiliar to my earthly body but not to my spirit. Lord, help me to be me and value myself. Place more of your word in my heart. Take away the doubt. Take away the uncertainty and fill me with all of you. Strengthen my Faith and my pursuit after you Almighty God, my redeemer. Whatever was wrongfully lost or forgotten during my journey that I need in order to move forward, be found. Remind me of the things that matter most to my destiny. Make me see the importance of my gifts. I need your clarity. I need your peace. I need your everlasting Love to make it through the days. Keep me in your will. Protect me on this journey. Grace me with your presence. Change my work ethics , I want to accomplish more. Renew my mind. Increase my ability to focus. Allow me to execute skillfully like never before. May my life be a reflection of you. Shine so brightly through me Lord. Shower down your abundance and your blessings. As you shine through me, I will change the world for your glory. Hear the prayers of my heart. I love you Lord. Thank you for your Grace & Mercy. Cleanse me & my life. In Jesus name Amen.
"But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14)
Are you imagining your dreams coming true?
Imagine- to form ideas, mental images; to think, believe, or fancy/elaborate an idea.
Are you imagining reaching your goals and fulfilling your purpose?
Do you 'see' yourself where you want to be?
A few parts to success to I.M.A.G.I.N.E:
I - Imagine our IDEAL self, life, activities
M -lead our MIND to the MIND of Christ.
A - take ACTION toward our IDEALS.
G -GOD given, GOD guided, GOD's Grace
I - INVEST in our MINDS, bodies, spirits.
N - Jesus helps us rise & become NEW
E- do we EXPECT to receive even more than we can IMAGINE? "Brethren, I do not imagine that I have yet laid hold of it. But this one thing I do--forgetting everything which is past and stretching forward to what lies in front of me,"
Let's IMAGINE...and stretch forward...
To what lies ahead... #imagine#stretchforward#godguides#fitover50#fitgrandma#godgivendreams#investinyourself
Vibe killers, threats from family and friends and "what's next questions" continue to be asked but I know my faith and works will lead to doors opening and possibly more doubt arriving due to bitterness increasing in other's life. #stretchforward#increaseontheway
I am headed in the right direction! 💖Remembering that #progress is NOT a result of efforts. Effort needs DIRECTION in order to make progress. God is going to use my WHAT to advance the Gospel! I will survive my WHAT because I know the WHY! I have an APOKARADOKIA faith! #stretchforward#functionalfaith#apokaradokia || IF YOU DIDNT HEAR YESTERDAYS SERMON.... Go listen!!
