Dealing with Opposition

Prayer is a great tool to use when dealing with opposition. I encourage you to pray when you feel offended. Pray when someone hurts your feelings or treat you unfairly. Pray when someone judges, criticizes or condemns you. Pray for your adversaries as well as leaders. When you spend time in prayer, it releases stress which helps your mental health. Even breath prayers have a positive impact when dealing with opposition or with negative energy. Give it a try! #prayerchangesthings #prayforyourenemies #pray

Hope In Action

Allow the hope that you have in your heart inspire you to act. Sometimes hope is seen as passive, or when we hear the words “I hope so” it is often said with doubt or without excitement. I challenge you to use the word “hope” to stir you into action. You can begin by taking your hopes to God in prayer and ask Him for the wisdom and guidance to make your hopes a reality. He will reveal to you one step at a time what to do. Just trust and believe! (Romans 15:13).

Forgiveness

Reading God’s word is part of my morning routine. When I read God’s word it provides me with guidance, encouragement, as well as it reminds me of the promises of God. Sometimes I must admit I am challenged by the commands of God, for example Matthew 6:15 where God says “But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.” You see, we all have fallen short and at some point or another, we have trespassed or disappointed people that we love. However, when we are hurt or left holding the short stick – it can be very difficult to forgive. But if you are like me, you certainly don’t want the consequence of not forgiving others. Even if it is for selfish reasons, I choose to forgive. What about you? #forgive #forgiveyourself #forgiveothers #love #loveoneanother

Practice Excellence

We are not perfect people, but being imperfect doesn’t prevent us of practicing excellence in all that we say and do.

How do we practice excellence? I am glad that you asked!

We practice excellence by keeping our word and by doing what we say we are going to do.

We practice excellence by counting the cost, before we commit to someone or something so that we will finish what we start.

Finally, we practice excellence by being truthful and honest with others and ourselves.

Being the best version of ourselves is what practicing excellence is all about.

Celebrate Life!

Life is too short to not live it fully. Although, it is possible to live life blandly. You know what I mean, simply going through the motions of working and doing only what is required of you to survive, but not truly enjoying life. Each day that we wake up and we move, as well as have our being– is a gift! Don’t take living for granted, celebrate life by living it with intention, and on purpose with a purpose! #inspiration #motivation #findjoyinthejourney #lifecoach #claritycoach

Dealing With Conflict

Unaddressed conflict can become a major problem in relationships. It is best to go to God and ask him to reveal your part of the problem in the situation, because being right is overrated. As much as it is up to you, live at peace with those that you love. You don’t have to agree with wrongdoing, just disagree respectfully and peacefully.

Can You Believe It?

We are at the half-way mark of 2022! How are you doing in life? What about your dreams and goals? Sometimes life happens and it requires us to give ourselves permission to:

Re-Set, Re-Claim, Re-Discover, Re-Start and Re-Ignite!

Take time to reflect on your life and share in the comments, how you plan to move forward!

Be Generous!

Did you know that God loves a cheerful giver? I mean giving doesn’t necessary need to be in the form of money. There are many ways that we can give to others. We can give up our time and volunteer to help a charity or someone in need. We can take time to encourage or uplift someone, we can give compliments (instead of keeping them to yourself), or we can donate material gifts. I must admit gifts are my love language, however when I give gifts to others – I receive so much joy in return! Try it you might like it! Acts 20:35, 2 Corinthians 9:7. #itisbettertogivethanreceive #givingmatters #makeadifference #motivational #inspirational #personaldevelopment #personalgrowth #lifecoach

How do you choose to give to others? Let me know in the comments.

Feeling Overwhelmed?

What do you do when you experience the feelings of being overwhelmed or as if life is spinning out of control? When I have these emotions I take time to be still and click the inner pause button. Then I pray or take deep breaths to clear my mind. Most of us can relate to having a rough day, week or year. When you are going through it, consider shifting your focus on what is going well in your life, and surrender the negative emotions to God. Now, it’s your turn. Write in the comments what do you do to reset mentally.
