Life Abundant

Braver Saturday  -Once you see it, you can’t unsee it. When religious, we focus on what we want & patiently connive to get it. Interesting to note, you can notice these characteristics in churches who spend 20 minutes announcing the offering. Is this how we relate to Father God? One another?We manipulate with our words long enough to get what we want? Sowing to reap but focused on self? #bebraver Maybe we could try just being honest and clear? What if we just be relationship focused & loving & kind & watch God bring abundant life? Less stress. Love-d

Taking Advantage

Braver Saturday -Your gratitude to someone is cancelled when you take advantage of them. It’s even deeper than you think. It’s good to be thankful. Gratitude is an attitude that can change your atmosphere. But what happens if you step over into an area where you are taking advantage of someone for whom you are grateful??? One way to test yourself is by asking yourself-

1. Am I demanding?

2. Am I manipulative?

3. Am I treating them like a slave?

Honor is what love looks like as Jill Mitchell O’Brien says…so, you might reconsider your attitude if you’ve begun to demonstrate any of the above. 

Answer??? Love is all we owe one another. Stop treating them as if they owe you something. Whether they are working for free or for hire, you still need to be kind. What can you do to help them? That’s a good start… Love-d

You can say no

Braver Saturday – God told Jesus no.

Sometimes no is the better covenant. #bebraver

Changing my Focus

Braver Wednesday – it’s not as easy as thinking that whatever you think you will get. But what if what you are thinking in the negative will never come to pass? Then you wasted all that precious time thinking dreary dead filled thoughts. Let’s change our focus. Let’s expect something different. Let’s hope for more. Let’s enjoy where we are while on the way to where we are going. Love, D

Colors in The Storm

Braver Wednesday-Storms come and go. Ask for eyes to see the colors in your storm. Let the promises He has given you come to remembrance in the storm. Let HOPE arise. God is NOT DEAD!! HE hears. HE sees. HE knows. Hold on my friend. Your business can turn. 

Your marriage can turn.

Your work can turn.

Your health can turn.

Your life can turn.

Your love can turn.

Let hope arise.

Turn from the storm and look to the colors in the storm. Then, remember the promise. Love-d

Build up or shut up!

Braver Wednesday-Words are powerful. What are you saying to others? What are you saying to yourself? What are you repeating from others that aren’t your thoughts at all? Think before you speak to yourself and others. #bebraver Consider your words. Consider your thoughts. Then speak with intention. Build up. Don’t tear down. Then maybe your actions will be love oriented instead of filled with fear. Many times our actions follow our thought life. #bebraver Be Kinder

Gods Not BORED! 

Braver Wednesday-Opinion-If you are bored (yet believe you are Christian), then it is possible you are in relationship with religion. Father God is not boring or bored. So, partner with Him and let The Way, The Truth & The Life lead you into adventuring with Him over the river and through the woods. #BeBraver Love d
