Meditate on His Word!

Anything you want to become good at takes practice. If you want to be good at meditating on His Word, you have to practice it. Just like a great coach takes the time to build up his team and get them thinking in the right direction before the big game, you have to take time every morning to “coach” your thought life, too. You can’t just wait to see how the day will unfold; you have to set yourself up for victory.

Winning isn’t just about ability; it’s about attitude, mindset and internal dialogue. Believe that you are created to win because what you believe about yourself affects your future more than anything else. You have to see yourself as a winner before anyone else will. Fill your thoughts with the truth of God’s word which says, “You are more than a conqueror. You are equipped. You are well able to overcome any obstacle you may face.”

Maybe it’s been challenging to see yourself as a winner up until this point. Perhaps some unfair things happened in your past. Maybe you were wrongfully accused, lost your job, or perhaps someone walked out on you. If you hold on to the past and keep those negative memories in your heart, they will weigh you down and prevent you from becoming all that God intends for you to be. Don’t let the words or actions of others stop you from living with purpose and enthusiasm! Nothing from the past can change your value in the eyes of God. Today is a new day, and now is the time to get a fresh, new outlook on life. It’s time to clean out those negative memories and forgive those who have wronged you.

Today, take some time to examine your thought life. Are there any negative mindsets that you need to change? Do you see yourself the way God sees you—as valuable and important? Look past whatever you may be feeling about yourself and focus on what God says about you. Remember, you are not here by accident. You are created in the image of Almighty God, and your life is full of purpose. You are God’s special treasure. No one can keep you from your destiny, and nothing can disqualify you from your purpose!

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. ~~Psalm 19:14

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
