Yes, you can live your best life!

Let me start off by saying, I am not into politics AT ALL. Yet, I will admit Trump fasinates me. I say this because from what I hear, he doesn’t have any political background, yet he decided to run for the highest position in America. And in his heart he believes he can win. I admire this so much  because that’s the true definition of FAITH! 

“Now FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

This man despite all odds is going full steam towards his dreams. I may not agree with some of things he says or does, but watching him in action has catapulted my FAITH levels. If he can see himself as President, I should be able to see myself as a New York Times Best Seller. I believe the word of God when it says, “But with God all things are possible.”  Matthew 9:26

“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24
But getting on that list or achieving anything in life takes work. Nothing is simply handed to anyone. I must be diligent and be faithful with my part and God will be faithful with his part. I then must trust his perfect timing and stop looking at my watch. 

I want to encourage everyone reading this blog post that if you can first see it in your mind, then it can become your reality. Stop focusing on the now and who you are right now. But rather, view yourself as what you want to become. Live in your mind as if you are already who you are trying to become. The first step is to first think it. Next, speak it. Speak it daily. 

“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mark 11:23

Sometimes, I honestly want to give back my adult card and be a kid again. Being grown can be very hard at times due to all the responsibilities that are required as an adult. From rent, doctor bills, car notes and insurance, utility bills and a heap load of other stuff, managing it all can be a bit overwhelming. Not to mention those adults who are parents. Those responsibilities of rearing good children are endless. No longer is it just about you, but now you are responsible for the life of another human being.

I’m one of those adults who has children and bills. I love my life and wouldn’t trade it for anyone else’s, but I’ve been through storms in which I did not know how we were going to pay a certain bill or what we were going to eat next.

My testimony is that although at times I lacked resources, I was full of faith. Faith is what gets God’s attention. Faith causes angels to work on your behalf. Faith causes things to happen in the spiritual first, then supernaturally in the natural.

Life for me and my family nowadays is pretty cool calm and collective. I’m very grateful for all of the blessings in our lives. When my finances are low, I call forth money to come into my reality. God owns everything. And being that he is my Heavenly father and I am his child, when I ask for anything he blesses me with it.

Please don’t get me wrong, sometimes things don’t happen on my time clock, but God is always on time. Yes, there are times when God seems to want to till the last minute, but that’s where faith kicks in.

We have all been given a measure of faith, but it’s up to us to exercise and grow our faith to great levels. The question should never be if God wants to do something, but rather are you willing to do your part by praying and trusting him.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Everyone has a purpose, a reason for their existence. Everyone also has been giving a gift in which God embeded in your being when you were given life. Some people have one, while others may have many others. But, regardless of the number of gifts given, my question to you is…what are you doing with what you’ve been given?

God gets excited when we praise him, but I believe he also gets excited when we use our gifts to his glory as we help and encourage others around us. It’s unfortunate when someone has wasted many precious years of their life not knowing their purpose or what their gift is. Our time here on this earth is very limited, thus one goal I encourage everyone to do is find out is why you are here.

Finding this out takes some alone time. Finding this out means not logging into social media or your emails, but actually sitting by yourself while talking to your Creator. He has all the anwsers, so quiet yourself and listen to his voice. He will answer your questions and give you direction.

Next, once you’ve figured out your purpose, dreams and goals you must only focus on YOUR purpose, dreams and goals. I say this because it is very easy to look left or right and see the suceess of someone else and get discouraged. Their race is not yours, so stay focused.

Trusting God in the midst of living out your dreams and goals is a must. It’s so easy to fill like a failure when things aren’t lining up the way you would want them to. It’s easy to want to give up when you need a certain amount of cash, only to look at the balance in your bank and you don’t have the needed funds.

It’s during these times God wants you to stop looking at your situation. Stop looking at your “right now,” but rather see things how he sees them. Daily focus on seeing life the way God sees it. Practice living a faith lifestyle. Take life one day at a time, one prayer at a time. Above all, never give up.

Begin to see things no one else can see. See things the way God intended for you to see them. Stop looking at life like every other human. You are a child of God, thus you were created for greatness. I want to encourage you to work your gift the way only you can work it!

Believe in yourself. Change your vision, thus changing your life!
