Ten Ways I Stay Motivated

1.  Start the day with prayer or meditation.
2. Brew a good cup of coffee.
3.  Go over my list of goals.
4.  Set new goals ones the old ones are accomplished.
5.  Listen to motivational podcasts or youtube videos.
6.  Read biographies of people who have survived cancer or some amazing trauma.  This helps to remind me that no problem is too big for God.
7.  I try to look in the mirror and say affirmations every morning.  Some of these affirmations are the same ones and some are different. 
8. Try to keep a good, constant routine.
9.  Write or draw in my journal.
10.  Reward myself for accomplishments.  After all, you deserve it.

Hope you have a wonderful week !!

Motivational Monday

Psalm 25 (KJV) 25 Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. 2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. 3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. 4 Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. 5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.Sometimes it is difficult to wait on God. However, God's timing is absolutely perfect ! He knows when we can handle certain situations. Sometimes it's that we have a rebellious attitude on waiting that God does not answer our prayers. God has a purpose for all of His children. You weren't put here by accident. I hope I can share that message with as many people as possible.Prayer--Thank you for everything that You have given me. Lord, you put me here for a reason. Let me not be ashamed to share your wonderful message of Peace. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Fantastic Friday

John 1 (KJV)1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.This is one of my favorite Scriptures. There is actually a choir song written about this passage. It was an amazing piece to learn and sing. I still sing it from time to time because it has a catchy melody. It reminds us that God was here from the beginning. He is here NOW and he will eternally be a true living God.I wonder what it was like to have the vision that God gave John that day. It must have been magnificent. We get to read about it later, in the book of John. These first few verses have a special meaning. It reminds us that God is always there for us when we need Him. He just wants to hear our voices.1. In the beginn…

Terrific Thursday

Titus 3 (KJV)3 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. 3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;Sometimes I wonder if people even read my blog posts. Then other times I think, what does it matter? This is something God wants me to do so it should not matter. We shouldn't strive to please people. My husband and I went out to eat yesterday and I heard the song that goes something like this," I learned my lesson well. You can't please everyone. So …

Wonderful Wednesday

Psalm 35(KJV)35 Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. 2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help. 3 Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation. 4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord chase them. 6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the Lord persecute them. 7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.This Scripture came to mind last night. I was thinking of something to write and the words Plead my cause," came to mind. This Scripture and a prayer for strength. A prayer for help and a shield against the enemy. Sometimes we forget that the battle wasn't ours to begin with, it&…

Terrific Tuesday

Hebrews 1 (KJV)1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. “You weren’t an accident. You weren’t mass produced. You aren’t an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on the earth by the Master Craftsman.” Max Lucado Read more: https://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/22-great-max-lucado-quotes/#ixzz4yPyhvEgu prayer--Lord at times it is easy to have a self- pity-party...Help me not to be like that.

Motivational Monday

Colossians 4 (KJV)4 Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven. 2 Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; 3 Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: 4 That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. 5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. 6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.This passage of Scripture really highlights the importance of prayer. There are so many that one could refrence but this one actually says to " continue in prayer." Our Country needs prayer. Our President needs prayer. OUr church leaders need prayer. We, servants, need prayer. Everyone needs prayer. No one is exempt from death. However, No one is exempt from God's wonderful mercy either ! God wants us to hav…

Fantastic Friday

When He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep. And they came to Him and woke Him, saying, "Save us, Lord; we are perishing!" He said to them, "Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?" Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm. The men were amazed, and said, "What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?" Matthew 8:23-27The foundation of success in life is good health: that is the substratum fortune; it is also the basis of happiness. A person cannot accumulate a fortune very well when he is sick. P. T. Barnum Lord, help me remember that the anchor still holds and this boat can not sink unless You allow it to do so. In Jesus Sweet Name, Amen.
