Moments of Hope!

You Are Born For Greatness!

God is just starting to unveil my story and God always calls us to the greatness that He puts in us.  We all fail but it is how we handle that failure that will be the difference between success or failure. Throughout history successful people failed many, many times before they got to that shot of success.  Many times people don’t share their failures because they are on the fence as to whether they should quit or keep on keeping on.  This is my decision, I’m not quitting.  We all know life can be hard and if we have emotional issues like bipolar, depression, anxiety, ADHD or learning disabilities it does make it harder but it doesn’t give us a ticket to give up. The last few weeks I have been under the weather being sick in my body, but I had to make a choice to go back to that life of depression and living behind the mask again or step out in Faith as I have been teaching since January 2022.  I thank God for Divine Connections and Melissa Bruno, my sweet, God-sent friend, that kept reaching out to me daily, when I wanted to give up and throw in the towel and say I’m not making a difference in this world.  She didn’t give up on me and neither am I.  Remember this saying it starts with touching the life of one.  I know God has been faithful in that and I need to be faithful in my mission to give hope to the hurting even if doors are closing that I don’t understand.  I remember saying in my live video one day that I’m excited for closed doors because that means God has a different plan then what my plan is. Healing from emotional wombs such as forgiveness is hard, but it is necessary to heal in our journey.  This week on my Passport to Freedom course I had to write letters to myself to all those that I needed to forgive.  That was a very freeing exercise, but I needed to forgive myself for continuing to be labeled by bipolar and remember that I am a Child of the Most High God.  Deep down I have always been angry about being bipolar and I needed to release that to God and finally be free from that label.   

Are you at a crossroad in your life to keep pressing on or do you feel like giving up?  The Bible says   Then Jesus said,  “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Does your soul need refreshing today?  It is time to Rewrite your story. You must believe in yourself, in your Dreams and in God‘s Word.  He wants to refresh you.  He wants to cause you to rest.  If you knew everything was going to work out for your good, you would stop worrying. You would rest! Even if things don’t work out the way you planned, or on your timetable, you can trust that God will turn things around in your favor.  “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” Romans‬ ‭8:28‬

We must always  remember we all have one mutual calling as believers, it is to follow Jesus and help others follow Jesus.  Have you fully surrendered your plans to Him? Is God saying to you as He did to me, find rest in His presence, spend time with Him and believe His Word, there is nothing to hard for Him.  Thank you Jesus for all our many blessings.  Be grateful even if you are in a pit of despair.  Even though I was so sick I would lay in bed and say “Thank you Jesus” that I woke up this morning and any thing I could think of I would start with “Thank you Jesus …”.   Speak the name of “Jesus”Start there and take it day by day.  We are all born for greatness but we must believe in His power within us for His greatness to come shining through.

“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”  Isaiah‬ ‭26:3‬ ‭NIV‬‬. 

Stand on God’s promises and believe that you can have perfect peace everyday, every hour, every minute because your mind is steadfast and you trust God’s promises.  

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭NIV‬.  

When we trust Him with all our heart we don’t question closed doors because He has a perfect plan that we know not of.  It might not make sense as to the reason but trust Him and He will make your path straight. The more I try to figure things out the further away I feel from God. In all your ways submit to Him the scripture reads. Don’t question. Just believe. I’m realizing that is the only way to truly have peace in the midst of the storm. Trust and obey for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. I remember singing that as a little girl and the lyrics just came to me. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word. What a glory He sheds on our way! While we do His good will, He abides with us still and with all who will trust and obey. 

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Mark‬ ‭11:24‬

 Do you have a desire to impact the lives of others by sharing your gifts from your life journey?  We all want to live our best life now so how do we do that?  I believe that if we take our mess, the struggles that we have survived and share a message of Hope, to thrive ourselves and help those around us to thrive also.  That is success!  The power of success is to see yourself being successful and have joy and help others find that same joy and success that you have found.

How do we change the world?

One act of random kindness at a time!

Smile at someone today and “Pay It Forward.”
