As Long As You're Breathing, You Have Another Chance!

Image
Tip of the Day!
Another chance to do differently.  Another chance to get it right.  Who told you it was over?  Why did you believe them?  As long as you are breathing, you have another chance!

Lamentations 3:22-24(KJV)22 It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

Stop Avoiding God!

Image
Tip of the Day!
We avoid God when we feel pain, hurt, sadness or any emotion that we think that we can handle.  If you were able to handle these emotions, you would have by now.  You messed up, go to God.  You're feeling hurt, go to God.  Stop avoiding God!  He loves you and He's patiently waiting for you.

It's Tuesday!

Journal Each Moment!
Sometimes the things that depress us are minor, other times they are major.  I have experienced times when I didn't even recognize that I had fallen into a depression.  Have you ever experienced this?  Have you looked back and said, "wow, I was depressed and didn't know it?".  I find it helpful to keep a journal and I'll admit that it's something that I need to go back to doing.  It doesn't have to be a journal of doom and gloom either!  You can write all of the wonderful things that happen in your life, your small victories, your happy times, etc.  Write how good God has been to you?  Write about the things that make you happy.  Write your plan to make your life better and how you plan to do so.
Habakkuk 2:1-3 (KJV)1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain …

Scriptures to Confess...4 Prosperity & Success

26 Minutes alone with God today. How are you spending your time with Him today? I pray that you encourage someone to spend time with God. Allow Him to refresh you. In today's Scripture we are told that blessings will continue to flow for a faithful person. Spending time with God everyday is a part of faithfulness. Reading His Word daily, doing your best to live His way all contribute to faithfulness. God is in love with you and He blesses you when you bless Him. Don't chase after the world and it's riches, char after God.

A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
Proverbs 28:20 KJV

Just because it's hard doesn't mean you can't make it!
Yes, this has been a hard week for me.  There have been situations that I've had to deal with regarding myself, there's the mass shootings that are becoming too "common" that are disturbing me and then there's the state of the world that is bothering me.  Sometimes it crosses my mind to give up and then I hear God telling me, "no, you can't".

I won't lie and tell that it's still been very hard.  There's some issues pressing really hard on me at this time.  I'm reminded that,
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 2 Corinthians 4:7-9
 I'm still praying everyday and I know that God is guiding me through each and every trial that I face.  He's …

Orlando, We're Praying For You!

It is with a heavy heart that I post today. My heart and my prayers are with all of those affected by the shooting in Orlando this morning. A senseless and immoral act upon humanity that is a struggle to understand happened. We're praying for you and believing God with you.

Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal.

Read God's Word!

When Life Disappoints You...

What do you do when life disappoints you...?

We all experience those days.

You never heard the alarm clock.  You running late.  Your pet vomits in front of the door way.  You forgot to sign paperwork that's needed today. The car is acting up.  You don't have the exact change for the bus/train.  You bang your bad foot against the door.  There's an accident on the highway.  Your boss/teacher has warned you about being late and to make matters worse, they don't like you.

There are many other scenarios that we encounter that may differ from the ones above, but we do understand that there are days when everything seems to go wrong.  It feels like one big disappointment after another.  This situations may even seem minor.  We could be facing trial, losing our homes, dealing with the loss of a loved one or anything that makes the little disappointments seem pale in comparison.

In the 15th and 16th chapters of 2 Samuel, King David, is dealing with a disappointing time in his …

Suicide, I'm Saying "Goodbye"!

Yes, suicide I’m saying, “Goodbye” You’ve fought a good fight Oh yes, you’ve tried I’ll admit it, You almost won, But almost won’t stop me From saying, “Goodbye” When I think of your game, How you wiggled your way in, All of the time you spent with me, Playing a friend, You spoke to me daily And never missed a beat Showing me who hated me Replaying my defeat Several times I trusted you, I believed you with my life Did as you instructed, And tried to end my life Even then you were pitiful. The pills made me sleep The drinks made me weak The marks from cuts were deep Marks that remind me of your part In trying to ruin me You thought that you destroyed me I thought you did too, Even when there weren’t attempts You were in my mind too. You told me I was worthless, Rejected and of no use. I believed that all of my dreams, Died while listening to you Yes, I remember every lie that you told The memory has taught me To protect my soul I remember when you said

Are You Self-Medicating Yourself?

Image
Are you self-medicating yourself to numb the affects of depression?

What are you using to numb the pain of being sad and unhappy?  Without denying it, first look at the different forms of "self-medicating" that we're referring to:


SexDrugsAlcoholUnhealthy RelationshipsFood, i.e., over-eating, bulimia, anorexia, etc.Obsessive Actions, i.e., shopping, cutting, video game binges, compulsiveness, etc.Dangerous Activities, i.e., gang-affiliations, violence, etc.HoardingBusynessThere are others that aren't listed here but understand that anything can be used to "self-medicate" the pain that is associated with depression.  Many people don't talk about the things that they use to "self-medicate" themselves. So many hide how they are really feeling.  Depression hits more people than we know, every single day. Oftentimes, if the person is not a drug or alcohol abuser, the "self-medicating" aspect can go ignored for very long periods of time.

Isaiah 26:4

Trust in God forever! It’s June 4, 2016. It’s the 4th day, which  at least, 4 minutes of prayer time. Trust God forever because He gives everlasting Strength. God gives you strength that won’t run out. You are able to make  through some things that you never could before. Trust Him today. The NLT version says that God is an eternal  "Rock". Big Rocks don’t move, you can lean on them, and they just stay. You can trust, lean and depend on Him forever. Bless the Band of  Lord!

Don't let anyone make you feel like less of a person because of your past. Your past is a part of you, but it isn't you today. You are who you are today because you've overcome your past. You were able to make it. You survived it! It helped to make you, but it isn't you today. Your Past is Just A Story!It's your story, but it isn't you today.

Do You Have A Loved One Who Suffers From Depression?

Do you have a loved one who suffers from depression?  What do you do to help them?  How often are you their leaning post and closest friend?
What are you doing for yourself? Are you allowing God to take care of you?
It is important that you take time to pray and relax in order to be there for your loved one.  It gets hard especially during episodes where you are needed 24/7, however, you are not God.  God doesn't sleep nor does He slumber (Psalm 121:4), but you need to rest in God (Isaiah 30:15).  It is important to your loved one that you trust God to care for you both, understanding that God sees and He cares.  Take time each day (if only a few minutes to an hour) and reconnect with God through prayer.  Rest in His love, listen to His voice.  Sit outside and listen to the wind or go to the beach and listen to the waves.  Allow God to restore you in His love that you may be the best caregiver to your loved one.  It will brighten their day to see you refreshed, which will give you…
