Hit The Delete Button

The other day I was watching Joel Osteen on television and he was talking about deleting negative things people may say about us. A lot of times we accept negative criticism that people say to us like, “you are never going to amount to anything in life; you’re never going to be the person you think you are going to be when you grow up (doctor, lawyer, etc.)”.

Dare To Be Different

I’m sure you’ve noticed how different human beings are! We’re all unique. Like the sun, the moon, and the stars mentioned in today’s scripture, God created each of us to be different from one another, and He did this on purpose. Each of us meets a need, and we are all part of God’s overall plan. Read More Here

God Made Us Unique Part 1

I prefer to use the word unique, because it stands out in my eyes. Can you even imagine if God made everybody the same? With the same favorite color, clothes styles, food etc. This world would be really boring. Read More Here

By Joyce Meyer

ARE YOU ONE OF THE THE MILLIONS who feel constantly busy? Do wake up thinking: I might as well stay in bed. There's no way I can get everything done! Obviously that's not a good way to live. God would much rather see you relaxed and confident in Him, peaceful and fulfilling your purpose in life. So if you're in a habit of feeling anxious and overwhelmed, I want to help you fix that.

You may think time is the problem-that there just isn't enough of it. But God gives everyone the same amount. We all have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I guess that's God's way of saying that's all the time we need to live a well-balanced life with plenty of time for work, rest and play.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, To everything there is a season and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven.

Instead of dreading that you don't have enough time, you can make the decision to have more wisdom with the way you spend your time.

You know, we spend time just like we spend money. When we spend it, it's gone. We can't get it back. So we need to think about what we are spending it on and decide whether or not we are making the right choices.

No matter what's on your to-do list today, I want to encourage you that God hasn't called you to be busy. He wants you to live purposefully and be fruitful.

AND THE SECRET TO BEING FRUITFUL is to have a close, personal relationship with God.

John 15:5 says, I am the Vines; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

No matter what you have to do to make time with God your top priority, you are never going to regret doing it. There is absolutely no better way to spend your time than to pray and study God's Word. It will bring you peace, joy, confidence, wisdom and understanding. You'll be encouraged. You can be healed. There's just no end to the good things that can happen in your life when you put God first.

You may have to wake up extra early or stay up later at night, but I encourage you to set aside time daily to spend with God. And when you do, listen for His voice. One reason people feel pressured and under so much stress is that they're listening to every voice around them except the voice of God.

Matthew 11:28-29 says, Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve  and refresh your souls.] Take My yoke upon you and learn of  Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest ( relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.

Even Jesus spent time alone with God before He went out into the world to do ministry, and He only did what God put before Him to do. He didn't let other people decide His schedule. If we will do the same, then our lives can be peaceful and purposeful as well as fruitful.

ARE YOU LIVING PURPOSEFULLY OR JUST BEING BUSY? Have you ever had a day when you were busy all day long but couldn't tell what you accomplished at the end of it? We don't have to live that way.

God wants to encourage us through His Word to live as people of purpose, making the most of the time we're given.

John 15:8 says, When you bear (produce) much fruit. My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine.

Following God can sometimes sound like a huge, impossible task. But really, you can be a great witness for God just by being productive, and resting in His presence as you go about your daily life.

When you feel like you've lost your balance again and things are getting busy, don't just drag yourself through the day. Make time with God your priority. He will give you the strength you need to live each day with peace and purpose as you accomplish everything He's calling you to do.

BE A Hopeful Person....


Did you know you can have hope right now? Your don't have to wait days, weeks, months, or years to expect God to move. He's with you, and He's already moving in your life. Psalm 71:14 says, "But I will hope continually, and will praise You yet more and more."

A hopeful person doesn't hope occasionally or sporadically. And a hopeful person certainly doesn't wait until tomorrow to expect something good from God. A hopeful person is continually hopeful, choosing to hope every day...all throughout the day.

There are some practical steps we can take to be continually hopeful - filled with the happy anticipation of good and making every day count.

If you have hope, you're never afraid to believe big. In fact, I like to say that hope is the platform that faith stands on. That's why it's good idea to go to God with a bold prayer today. You can't live with expectation today if you haven't had the faith to make a request.

Whatever it is that's in your heart, if it lines up with the Word of God, dare to ask confidently and then wait expectantly. God loves bold prayers. He answered them time and time again in the Bible, and He still answers them today. Exercise hope, stand in faith, and ask Him for something bold-and do it now.

Sometimes we lose our hope simply because we lose our joy. Instead of enjoying life every day, we get burned out by bills and discouraged by dilemmas. Why not decide to do something fun each day? It doesn't have to be a daily trip to Disney World. It could be as simple as coffee with a friend, watching a comedy with your family, or a walk in the park-anything that brings a smile to your face.

If you want to be continually full of hope, plan fun things that will create a sense of anticipation. Hope and joy go together; so plan something fun and go through your day enjoying God's presence and every blessing He gives you.

We all need fun and enjoyable things to look forward to. Today I am writing for several hours. I also plan to go for coffee with some friends later, do a little shopping, and go out to dinner tonight. When I plan my day, I always include something that I can look forward to. Don't wait until you retire to think about enjoying life-enjoy life now.

BLESS AT LEAST ONE PERSON EACH DAY. I love looking around and finding people I can bless. It's such a blessing to bless others! If you really want to enjoy your day, I suggest you help someone else enjoy theirs. Maybe you can buy someone's lunch, give encouraging complement, or tell someone they are important to you and that you appreciate them.

Ask God to show you how you can be a blessing and then follow His instruction. As you look to meet the needs of others, you're going to be surprised at how easy it becomes to hope and believe that God is going to meet your needs as well. Don't put off being a blessing. Do it today-be a blessing now.

WRITE DOWN AT LEAST ONE WAY EACH DAY THAT GOD HAS BLESSED YOU. Hope thrives in an atmosphere of thankfulness. If you want to live with hope on a continual basis, spend each day looking for ways the Lord had blessed you. You're going to be surprised at the number of things you'll find. The more you realize how God is blessing you NOW, the more hopeful you will be that you will see even greater things.

At the end of each day, take a moment to write those things down. Start a "testimony of hope" journal. Some days you might have one or two things to jot down, other days you might have 10 or 20 things, filling an entire page. Start documenting God's goodness in your life and watch how easy it is to never live one day without vibrant hope.

I want to challenge you to go ahead and to get your hopes up! Something great could happen. A breakthrough could take place today. You don't have to wait until tomorrow to believe it-believe it today!

The Power of Encouragement

Finally, brethren, farewell (rejoice)! Be strengthened (perfected, competed, made what you ought to be); be encouraged and consoled and comforted; be of the same [agreeable] mind one with another; live in peace, and [then] the God of love [Who is the Source of affection, goodwill, love, and benevolence toward men] and the Author and Promoter of peace will be with you.
-Philippians 1:6 (MSG)

"Encouraging words add physical strength to people. We need to encourage one another. Spend time thinking about what life is like for somebody else. Ask God, Who can I encourage today? How can I build someone up?' - Joyce Meyer

Read: Deuteronomy 7:13; 33:29; Psalm 72:17; Galatians 6:10

Acts of encouragement appear hundreds of times throughout the scriptures We need to stay busy loving God and Building each other up. Why does God encourage us? Why is it important for us to bring joy to others?
List some uplifting words you can speak over yourself and the people you care about.


Read: John 13:34; 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

As the hope of God's Word sinks into our hearts, we begin to move beyond our own needs, and our desire to speak love and encouragement to others grows. Think about the people God puts in your path each day. Who do you know who can use a little extra joy today? Write down their names and ask God to bring to your mind words of encouragement to share with them:
