Sometimes we get caught up with all the challenges of life and it’s not until either something drastic happens or we have had enough, that we ask ourselves, “How did I get here?” When you examine your life, you are where you are based off of the choices you’ve made whether good or bad. However, when you have made the wrong decisions, it’s about how you respond that will determine what happens next.
I used to tell my team, “control your controllables.” Meaning, you decide where your next move will be. Don’t get down and dishearten about what happen or could have been, but focus on what can be. Redirect your way of thinking and find out what your true purpose is. Do what makes sense and most importantly, do what makes you happy. #purposefilled

For “Family and Friends Day,” Bishop gave an awesome message reminding us that power is in the tongue. I received this message and reflected on my life, particularly as it pertained to my business. One has to be careful of what you speak because it liable to come true. In the same token, if you want to be successful, it all begins in your mind and proceeds out your mouth.
When I think about running my own business I get mixed emotions. I have both joy and fear at the same time. The joy comes to mind when I think about the limitless possibilities that can come from a simple thought of me stepping out and doing “my own.” Fear sets in when I begin to execute and things aren’t as easy as I expect them to be, especially when I have to depend on others.
I have to constantly remind myself that if I wasn’t built for it, God wouldn’t have given me the vision. At the same time, in life you have to fight for what you want and to understand it won’t always be easy. Some of the most successful people in life had to be told “no” and furthermore they had to find the will to keep their dream alive.
In order for me to go to the next level in my life or much less in my career, I need to make sure my mind is being fed the right things. From there, the things of my heart will then overflow into my reality. I simply need to speak those things as if they were and take action behind it. Be encouraged wherever you are in life today and whatever you do, keep moving forward.
Supportive Scripture: Prov. 18:20-21
Did you know that God has already given you the power to overcome and accomplish anything that comes your way? It’s just up to you to believe. Often we allow the enemy to deceive us in thinking that you will never have what is already our God given birth right.
The Bible says that in Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
By knowing God’s word we are able to fight against the trickery of the enemy and sin. We are also able to be more in tuned to the things in the spirit and know God’s will for or lives. The Bible doesn’t say that everyday will be easy, but you can rest sure that God will “…never leave nor forsake you,” Deuteronomy 31:8.
Remember the enemy comes to “steal, kill and destroy” (John 10:10), however God is the author and finisher of your life. Whatever your desire, make sure it’s in line with the will of God. Be encouraged and know that you are a seed of Abraham and you are entitled an inheritance. Where you start is not where you will end. Trust and Believe. Happy Sunday Everyone!
