Tenacious Tuesday – What will you do today? I’m pondering this myself. Though I had a plan when I went to bed last night, I awakened with the thought that perhaps….I should rethink it…rethink the whole deal. Wow. Start over? No. But revamp. Rethink. Renovate. These words and action steps come to mind. So, I encourage you today to stop. Think about it. Then, revisit your old plan and read it over with a reNEWed interest to partner with HIM instead of what you have always been doing….
It is a new day. Let’s move from the OLD into the NEW……..
And you and me equals us.
Until soon – love, d
Motivated Monday- I cooked a large meal for some important people recently. I cooked way too much. Way. But I did not care. Our motive was to honor and so the spread of appetizers and the meal itself was awesome. They were a bit overwhelmed by the over the top attitude. I wonder when the last time was that they were honored? I explained that in Texas we either go big or go home. We live such little non expectant lives don’t we?? For ourselves and one another. It was our pleasure to cook big and have left overs. We had a big dinner the next day and a family came over to eat including a mom that appreciated not having to cook. Part of me kept telling me I should be embarrassed by the big meal for the executives but I shut her up fast. I don’t want to live a small insignificant life and I don’t think God wants us to either. They will remember the meal. I will too. I’m glad I decided to be me and step into valuing them as I wanted instead of being logical and reasonable as they expected. Know yourself. Know your worth. We are over the top…so was and is our God. Until next time…d
Afraid to ask a question.
I always had an intense love for music and loved to sing. I had never joined choir in junior high or high school, because I was under the impression that it cost money to do it. Every year I had been too afraid to ask my parents or the school, because I was afraid of rejection and afraid to burden my parents with a bill for something so trivial. I learned as a junior in high school that no money had ever been required. I missed out on learning how to sing and how to develop a natural gifting simply because I was afraid to even ask a question. In addition, I still have a little note I wrote to my mom when I was just a little kid. I asked her if she would take me to the skating rink, I pleaded for her not to tell me her answer aloud. Instead, I asked her to write it down on the piece of paper I provided for her with a place for her to check yes or no. I was afraid of being rejected to the extent that I could not even hear a no without it causing me to cry or feel like there was something wrong with me. I lived under the fear of rejection. What about you? Perception is reality.
Over the years, I have been placed in circumstances where I was able to confront areas where I felt afraid or rejection. Over time, I have been healed of the fear of authority, the fear of being harmed. Of course through the journey, I was harmed and I did come across some who just were not for me but it was not the case with everyone. My perception has changed and I believe more in myself and in others than ever because I asked if His perception is reality.
Father, I pray for the reader and I ask for healing in the depth of who he or she is and I pray for a release from false preconceived notions about themselves and others. Let Your truth take the place so that they are one with You and Your perception is reality.
Send this to a friend whose perception is reality…
