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

The other day my husband bought me some flowers. The bouquet was beautiful, but at first the purple flowers pictured were closed. It wasn’t until the next day or so that they finally decided to open and show their beautiful color. 

This reminded me of how I’ve prayed for something, but regardless of how hard I prayed and begged God for it. Either his answer was no, or it wasn’t the right time. Getting use to trusting God’s timing isn’t always easy, but we must do it. God knows best whether we want to believe it or not. 

Sometimes, No is the answer. Be okay with that. 

Flowers bloom when it’s time and God blesses at the right time. Any moment to early or too late would probably cause an issue. Just like getting something we are not ready to receive yet can be an issue. What if you’re not ready? Then maybe you wouldn’t appreciate your blessing. Just like asking to be married; if you’re not prepared to be a wife or husband then you will not know how to treat your forever blessing. I speak from experience! 

So I want to encourage you to be patient while you wait for your prayer to be answered. Rejoice and have a grateful heart in the mean time. Trust God heard you and he sees your tomorrow, so simply relax. 

I personally don’t think of myself as a quiet person because i’m a exorvert and I love people. But, I can have periods of time in which I recognize it’s time to quiet myself and listen to my Creator. 

“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17

I am a woman of faith and one who knows how to pray to get results. To me, prayer doesn’t have to be a certain time of the day. Nor, does it have to be for a certain reason for me to pray. But, prayer needs to be something that happens all the time. There is always something to pray about.

When I’m driving in my car, I’m praying. When my I tuck my children into their beds, I’m praying. When I’m with my patients, I’m praying. When I am in the shower, I’m praying.

Prayer is a covering! 

I want to encourage you to always pray. Prayer changes things. Prayer is a conversation with God. It’s in prayer that will you find answers. 

So often God wants to talk to us, but we can’t hear him over all the noises that surround us. One major noise maker is ourselves. So often we want to dominate the conversation with the things we want; our wish list that we forget to give God a chance to talk. 

A conversation requires both talking and listening. If one person is dominating the conversation then the other person feels overwhelmed with no way to escape. They would love to interject and add to the conversation, but there is never an opportunity. 

God is not bossy. He is not going to bully his way into a conversation. He has plenty to say that will encourage and give you direction, but if you don’t quiet yourself, he will never be able to share his wisdom. 

So I encourage you…the next time you are in a conversation with God give him a chance to talk. His words will guide you and give you peace. His words will uplift and give you answers. Yes, what you have to say is important, but what he has to say will catapult you into your destiny. 

Practice listening!
