Quote for the Day …

” Authenticity has never failed …. unleash your difference”

                                                 – Mike Murdock-


Be Angry and sin not?

Anger is an energy. Focus it.

Anger is the birthplace for ideas, changes and innovative strategies. Anger is simply passion needing an instruction.

“Be ye angry and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: neither give place to the devil” Ephesians 4:26-27

 

I received this from Dr. Mike Murdock’s ministry a few weeks ago (I think) and I just read it today. God’s timing is perfect because I can say it meant more to me today then it probably would have a few days or weeks earlier.

This hit home for me because I have the potential spend a lot of time angry. Even if it is only a few minutes here and there: sometimes sporadically through out my day I find myself irritated, agitated and/or angry. It has slowly been revealed to me that not everything is always what it seems.

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal … so when I think my anger may  be with my kids, my husband, a co-worker, brother or sister … if I “slow down” I can give myself time to see that the anger did not originate with them.

Be angry and Sin not??

 “Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the laps of fools” Ecclesiates 7:9

“God, if you are reading this … I do not want to be a fool”

… and every time I get angry I may not know exactly the root but I can take hope and know that I can come to God and cast all my cares on Him because He cares for me. I can also know that his word sheds light on all dark places and the work He has begun in me He will complete until the return of His Son.

 “Anger is passion needing instruction”

A few nights ago I found myself angered over priorities that were simply mis-handled and mis-prioritized (if that is not a word …. it is now). So, instead of me blowing my top and ranting and raving and letting everyone “have it”. I prayed.

Crazy thing was … was that I was going to do my “Get ’em God” prayer as if I did no wrong. And even though I did not … I prayed that God would show me how I can within myself begin the change that is needed. What can I do in my personal life that would reflect what should be done. I saw there was no “order” so then I must implement the order and let everything else fall into place or simply remove itself.

If you want change, it must begin with you. Especially if you are the first to notice the change must take place.

It requires a humbling of yourself which is sometimes extremely hard .. and more so when you KNOW you are not wrong.

But I must admit it does work. I regained some of the order I felt was lost and no one got hurt.  The worst thing to me is when I have completely jumped off the deep end and over reacted to a situation, that really all it required from me was to sit back, calm down and think. One thought can spare me and the other person embarrassment and regret.

” My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires”

James 1:19-20

 


No Fear Over Here ….

Look you guys, I am so excited today! I am excited because first, the weather is gorgeous( a beautiful 79 degrees), the sun is out, I really think I lost some weight, I’m style’n and profile’n in the 5in. heels, hair is perfect, the kids and husband are happy, I’m SAVED … and lastly I am thrilled over the success of my blog.  I am so thrilled and over the top giddy about this blog that 1:30 could not come fast enough.

Style’n and Profile’n

My husband told me yesterday that, this is (amongst many other things) is what he has envisioned me doing (blogging that is) and great thing is that I totally agreed.

 
“If you dream with him, He won’t dream with another”
 Dr. Mike Murdock
(had to throw that quote in there)
 
Anyway, when I talked to a co-worker of mines today (whom I love dearly) we talked about just doing the things God has placed on our heart to do. One thing we talked about that keeps many people stuck is “Fear“.  Well, good news is – is that :
 
Christ took that to the cross and we have already overcome!
 
 Many people pray for deliverance from a thing and then we get up and totally leave it up to God to work on … and while that is a wonderful thing we have to understand that the key is: we have to begin to act on that thing.
 
While some things are totally dependent on the perfect timing of God and we do need his hand to do the work for us, we can still call those things that are not as though they were and move and act in faith. So, if I have prayed to be delivered  from fear and to act in a Godly boldness and confidence then I need to walk in it. If I want for my blog to become successful and reach millions, then I am going to talk and act as though I have already reached my one million followers! You get me??
 
Hey, Jesus prayed in the garden ” … if this cup could pass from me …” … the He said “Nevertheless” and he got up and eventually proceeded on in what God called him to do. Some of us (me included) need a “Nevertheless” in our spirit and in our heart and minds. That I may see this .. and I might see that but “Nevertheless”. I may feel this and I may feel that but “Nevertheless“.
 
People of God ….. God has not given us the spirit of fear … but of  love, peace and a sound mind
 
 We can no longer walk in timidness and doubt or fear .. worry … and whatever else may hinder you. We cannot let what we feel or see dictate how we go forth in life … if you are worried about what your past has been … let it go … it has been forgiven and forgotten … go forth and live. If you are afraid of what people may say or think… to heck with it … Jesus is Lord and I ain’t got to please you ♫cuz I’m FRESH♪  sorry, I am really feeling this broke out in song I’ll post the song for you all later.
 
But lets vow today and challenge ourselves that we will not live in fear. Stand up to whatever is holding you down … and let the world know you are NOT AFRAID!
