You can’t win a track meet just by thinking about it. You can’t win a basketball game just by dreaming. To have the life you say you want, YOU must BE ABOUT THE WORK that turns you into the person you need to be – to get that life.Continue Reading
Sometimes, you have to slow down in order to end up in the right place at the right time. Sometimes, rest is the only way through the storm.
Just saying, it makes you cute and you get your best brain back.
One of these women was a victim of domestic violence as a college student. Another was attacked by her husband on their honeymoon. The third grew up in a household filled with domestic violence. And the fourth has never had to deal with anything like that.
All of them are beautiful, blessed and pursuing their dreams. Look, your past doesn’t have the right to destroy your future. I don’t care how dark it was, the violence is not bigger than your destiny. You run this.
You want to heat up your life? Then change your focus.
Been working on the latest spoken word short film. Finally, everything’s recorded. But now, it’s time for editing!
Team Hot Prayers has big dreams and a full plate. So #PrayForUs.
Desire is just the beginning. It’s what you do with it that creates an amazing life.
As a child I wanted to be all kinds of things — a doctor, a lawyer, a secretary, an entrepreneur, a botanists, a writer, a singer, a dancer.
But it’s the desire that you feed that becomes your passion. And it’s the passion that drives a dream from your mind into reality. But first you have to catch fire.
Desire is the miracle,”
says Mike Murdock, author of The Uncommon Dream,
fuel it…and it will become an obsession.”
And whatever receives your greatest focus receives the strongest outcome in your life.
Focus Makes Fire
You can pour into your children, your husband or you can focus on your enemies and why they don’t like you. You can focus on the fake friends and why they let you down.
You can focus on the family members who don’t get or understand you. Or you can shift your focus from obsessing over yesterday to pouring that energy into your God-guided dreams. Your choice.
But remember, much like the sun beaming through a magnifying glass, Focus. Makes. Fire.
Spoken Word Matters
What you say can cause you to catch fire. In fact, if you change your language you can change your life. It’s a simple formula,
death and life are in the power of the tongue (Prov 18:21)”
and it’s up to you to choose living words in order to create a different future from the inside out.
If you intend to catch fire, then you better start with the match on your tongue. Since that mouth can set relationships, opportunities and families on edge, why not use it to light a fire under your dream? Just saying, if we want a different outcome, we’ll have to make different choices.
Start with the words you speak.
It think I’m obsessed with this, but it’s true. The spoken word is everything to the life you have now and the one you’re trying to build. Guide your tongue carefully. Make sure she’s helping and hurting, because a focused tongue is going to set something on fire. So make sure it’s the words you need to hear and the life you want to live.
I’m not afraid of an obsession — anymore. I think I’m wired for them. And since I’m going to have a few on this side of heaven, I’m choosing mine on purpose.
No more obsessing over the wrong man or the wrong friends. These days I’m focusing on the right dream.
A few of my obsessions:
- communication and what it does to a relationship,
- language and how it feels as it comes out,
- love and the way it gets into everything, eventually
Personal Lesson: Fuel what really matters.
Instead of reminiscing on the things I hate, I’m pouring the best of me into the life I want
