Why look out the window? I say look in your own mirror. Man and woman! You are made in God’s image. Who lives inside you is as valuable and as powerful as the one who preaches a message, sings a song or takes a mike. Christ in you makes you … glorious. Now just BE WHO YOU ALREADY ARE IN ALL HIS GLORY. love-d
Don’t be afraid to make a mistake. People who don’t make mistakes are in fear. Break off fear by stepping out with Him. He will give you a strategy and a plan and relationship and ideas and trust. And then you will make some more mistakes… And then you’ll make some more… And then you will change your mind and you will try to not make so many mistakes… And then you might make more mistakes.. Remember, you’re important and you are valuable. God will not leave you or forsake you because of mistakes. He lives through you. He might even hang out as you make mistakes… LOL. Of course he is there with you when you make mistakes. He doesn’t step out of you when you screw up… He’s right there with you… Because he is the one who never leaves you or forsakes you. Don’t be so disappointed with your error that you’re afraid to step out and make some more mistakes. Go for it… Watch a God’s House faithfulness blow your mind as you step out and find out just how imperfect you really are but how perfect he is. How faithful he is… When you are clueless… How good he is… When you are confused… Just continue to go for it. Respect yourself enough to make some more mistakes.
Dust off that bike. Turn that computer back on. Get out your notebook. Call that friend. Check your mail. Go back to work. Clean your house. Wash your face. Take a walk. Drive your car. Get off the couch. Rise from bed. Failure means you’ve not given up. So, just get up. Try again. You can do it.

a feeling of having already experienced the present situation.
I have had dé·jà vu my entire life. Moments in time, as if it’s happened before. There are many theories of why this happens. Feel free to google those but in this moment I want to share my working definition.
These moments of absolute clarity down to the very fabric of a curtain, time of day, furniture placement and location often take me aback. I’ve come to learn for me they are prophetic moments that when they do come In that dé·jà vu moment, they are a confirmation of where I am supposed to be.
Tonight I had another one. I have only lived in my home since October. All day I’ve been preparing the basement area for another Identity Vision Board Workshop tomorrow. As I picked something up it hit, full blown, a moment in time and yet I had been here before. No mistaking the curtains that had been left by the previous owner, the classroom setup, the time, etc. And in that moment I had confirmation of where I was physically, leading in passion, feeling in emotion, and healing in life. I welled up, thankful for all things.
How do you know you are right where you’re supposed to be? God confirms His best plans in many ways. Take a moment and ask Him. Expect Him to answer; He will. You have a place here. One of honor, destiny, planning, and love. Receive it from Him today.
I used to be the one in torment and I used to think I was going crazy. My work was impacted. My school. My marriage, my family. You name it. I was destroying it. My life was going nowhere. But nobody knew. But I got answers that made sense, thankfully without drugs to numb me or dull the pain or confusion. It took time. I was worth it. There ARE reasons for unexplained emotions that run out of control. These deep areas can be addressed so you can think with clarity and access who you really are… Cycles of sickness and anxiety are sometimes trapped and simply need released. Don’t give up hope.
I’m thankful for solid answers and healing in deep places that allowed me to experience valid and long lasting transformation. I am not the same person. My change did not happen overnight but it was worth it. Your future does not have to be your past. Don’t give in to giving up. The answers are inside you – both the good and the bad – the happy and sad – it all right there. Not for a few. All can see and all can find – the solution in time. Blessings..
You’re shut down but you can’t say because nobody would believe you anyway. Your mind is overwhelmed – it’s like you’ve been stoned. Left for dead by lies – feeling frozen inside. You want to trust but you don’t know how. This is probably your season right now. Hate and fear won’t disappear as long as you listen and hold them dear. They take you captive and mock your cries. They know The solution lives deep inside. Father. Son. Spirit. The three and one abide. In me and you. We are His bride.
Sometimes Christians blame everything on the devil yet is that really the truth? Maybe deep inside you just don’t believe in you. Maybe that’s why it’s taken so long to get out of the emotional cycle that traps you in shut down. Is this why it’s taking so long to recognize yourself in the mirror? Listen. Reconsider the future. Reconsider the past. Look yourself in the mirror and call yourself a friend at last. Tell yourself you can do it. Tell yourself not to look back. Tell yourself not to turn around or give in to the voices of lack. Take a step toward trusting yourself. Take a step toward believing again. Take a step toward forgiving yourself. Step away from your thoughts of the sin. God does not think about it anymore. Maybe you shouldn’t either? Move forward friend. One step at a time. Maybe you need an action plan? Just plan out the next three steps. Even if those steps only take you to the next day… you have still stepped farther than yesterday. Until soon-love-d
