Repent?

You are now a new person in Christ!

You are free from your past TO act like it! FREE TO ACT LIKE IT. Not.. SO you better act like it.

It’s an invitation …..not a beat down.

Doesn’t matter if bad memories of your exploits surface again. (And isn’t that usually the case when you feel good about yourself, things are going right or you’ve met someone new?)

Keep telling yourself you are NOT that person any more. That version of yourself was somebody else. Someone you used to know and who you no longer associate with.

Anyone brings up your past behavior just respond “I am not that person any more. Why are you bringing it up?”

Stop looking in your rear view mirror or in old journals unless you have a testimony or it brings God glory!

Every moment is a new start peeps. New you. New opportunities. Regardless of what happened a minute ago.

That is what it means to repent.

Someone needs to be reminded of this today. Whoever you are… I love you!

You’ll Never Catch Me Coppers!

I looked up from my computer to see a County Sherrif’s vehicle pull up and park outside my place. I suddenly froze, held my breath and thought ” Yikes! What did I do now?” Then, I exhaled and laughed! What could I possibly have done or DO that would warrant…..well a warrant? Hahahaha!

Isn’t it funny that even though my crazy redhead days are over with, that I am so quick to condemn myself? Before anyone else does? Or before there is any proof of wrong doing? I think we all tend to do that. Or am I the only one who has some “situations” in my past? You know….the ones you are glad happened before Facebook and Instagram were invented?.

Peeps, not only do we need to get over ourselves, we need to get PAST our past.

I am getting too old for this crap. How about you?

Thoughts-Beliefs-Actions

Are you tired of being stuck? You might just be the captain of your own dysfunctional Carnival Cruise!

We store thoughts or information in our minds and store beliefs in our hearts. Thoughts = beliefs = action. How do some of your thoughts become beliefs? By attaching emotions to it. The more times you attach emotions to a thought the stronger that belief gets. That is why it doesn’t take more than a heartbeat to get your blood boiling when you repeatedly think about that person that hurt you. It is more than a memory and it has now become a belief that has a very quick trigger. That is also why it is really important to break that circuit by sharing good stories or testimonies.

Why? Because we have been taught about life from stories since we were small children. Some good. Some bad. Unfortunately, we continue to tell ourselves stories that are lies, no longer true or keeping us stuck. When we share testimonies or hear testimonies of God’s goodness, healing, provision, etc. it stirs up emotions in us. We feel the reality of God! We feel what He can do and will do. It speaks the miracle or action prophetically into our own lives. When enough of those stories get imprinted into our hearts, it becomes a belief. These beliefs give us hope and propel us forward. When we are hopeless we remain stuck. The more it is imprinted, the stronger the belief gets. Good or bad. That is why it is easier to believe God in some areas and not in others. We just haven’t attached enough good or Godly emotions or proof to the areas we struggle in.

Purpose this week to share testimonies of God’s goodness in your life. Not only will it help someone else, but it will remind you of Him. I am tired of being stuck by some of the negative stories I continue to tell myself. It is time to put some emotions to the good stuff, so we can call more of it into our lives. God told me to make the month of March a march forward month. How about you?

Share your testimonies this week and let me know how you not only change the atmosphere around you…..but how it changes the beliefs in your heart!

March on, beloveds!

Finding Faith

Do you struggle with having enough Faith to see God move in your life?

Faith is moved by love. Not by how many bible verses you can recite, how much you read your bible, or highlight the crap out of it. 

YOUR FAITH IS MOVED AND INCREASED BY LOVE. NOT BY YOU LOVING GOD.OR EVEN YOU LOVING YOUR NEIGHBOR. FAITH INCREASES BY YOU REALIZING HOW MUCH GOD LOVES YOU! Receiving and accepting the unconditional, unfailing, all-consuming, perfect, and never-ending love by the one that created you! 

Regardless of your past. Regardless of your future. Regardless if you have denied Him your entire life up until now.

Just know Jesus and Father God love you RIGHT NOW. Right where you are. Right in the middle of that big poop hole you are in. Even if you can’t or aren’t ready to wade out of it. Even if being stuck in the muck proves a point to someone you love to hate. Or worse yet, want to punish. Even if that is yourself.

You have heard that faith moves mountains. That faith heals, saves, and delivers. But you can never figure out how much faith you need or where to find it. Or why it comes so quickly to others or why you can’t seem to hang onto it 24/7. And if one more person tells you that you already have everything you need, you will scream. WHY? Because you have been trying so hard to believe you already have it, but you just can’t SEE IT! Aggghhhh, We’re making it too hard, peeps.

It is simply love. GOD’S LOVE FOR YOU! Accepting that God loves you and has your back no matter what. When you finally realize His love for you, you will see it. Not because it wasn’t there before, but it’s hard to embrace what you don’t feel you deserve. You were created by God for such a time as this. EXPECT God’s goodness in every area of your life. That all of God’s goodness will manifest for you! Then start keeping a journal of blessings that come your way. I have, and it’s making a difference. Not only do I see how God has been working in my life so far, but it helps to give me confidence that He will continue to do so. 

That, my beloveds, is what will heal you, deliver you and move your mountains.

I finally get it! Stay warm, darlings………
