Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Yahshua Hamachia for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Everyone always tells me I have such a great energy. It’s just the wonderful energy of love surrounding me because of the Love of Yahweh and my daily attitude of gratitude for the grace, love and peace he has given me.
Daily Routine of Gratitude
When I wake up, about 2 or 3 years ago I learned to be thankful for simply waking up. To wake up in prayer and smile that he has given me life, that he has given me health, three beautiful healthy children, time freedom (because he has blessed me with an entrepreneurial spirit), freedom to get up when I finish sleeping, freedom to write in this blog, He’s allowed me to be born here in America where I can be a woman and do or say whatever I want. He has blessed me with a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food in the refrigerator! Oh HalleluYah! His LOVE is so GREAT!
When I kick myself in the butt and really keep to my schedule I get to go jogging on the beach which is less than 500 footsteps from my home. To be blessed to enjoy his beauty of the white sands, the sea shells, the Gulf Coast. To be blessed to be surrounded by others who are out in the morning jogging, walking and biking. Others like me that cheerfully say Good Morning with love in their hearts and smiles on their faces. WOW how blessed am I? Could it be possible that he has given me everything I’ve yearned for? PEACE!!!
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.~James 1:17 ESV
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.~Colossians 3:15 ESV
Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,~Hebrews 12:28 ESV
Complainers are missing out on Yahweh’s Love
For so many years I wanted so badly to be surrounded by Peace and Happiness. I was tired of drama, tired of arguing with my former Husband over nothing, tired of being around people who do nothing but complain about EVERYTHING. Some people complain about our Country. They complain about their bills, their children, the guy that cut them off while they were driving. Always looking for the problem in all things.
Well if the Holy Spirit of Yahweh really lives in you, how could you let the adversary attack you like that? The Word tells us this
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.~Philippians 4:8
Living by the Spirit of Contentment
While all that I have said about my daily routine may sound fabulous and that of a wealthy person’s life, I must tell you, it’s only by the grace of Yahweh! He has given me the opportunity to find only a small room on the beach! My expenses being less than $1,000.00 a month due only to the location. If I lived on the Coasts of CA or in Miami it would be much higher! The boys are grown and my Former Husband has opted to take care of our 8 year old daughter all by himself! I was actually fighting him for 3 years because I perceived that he stole her from me. But no matter what I did, I could not get her back. So maybe its just not part of His plan for my life. Therefore my expenses are that of a bachelorette for the first time in my adult life, I have no family! It’s been weird to get adjusted to but boy am I happy!
The Grace of Yahweh has sharpened me through heartache and pain to learn the value of a Dollar (not worth much these days but still)! So I am no longer interested in the big house and the luxury car. What wisdom he has given me to learn frugality! Now the money he has blessed me with can go to travelling at the drop of a hat to support my team or eating out when I get ready to or taking that Yoga class or Dance class and simply living in BLISS on less money than I’ve made in previous years where I was stressed, overwhelmed and broke!! I stopped chasing. But I am still the same entrepreneurial Go Getter I ever was. Except… Something is different. I am not desperate. I don’t NEED to make 20k next month I can run the marathon now at a steady pace. It doesn’t matter if I am 1st, 5th or last (according to someone else’s timeline) because I am in the KNOW now that I am a successful, strong, black woman that he has put on this Earth to BE an inspiration to others. Guess what? Now I can think clearer, make better goals, stay on schedule with calls plan for future seminars and much more. Because my mind isn’t filled with all of the mess the adversary wants it to be filled with to throw us off or what we SHOULD be thinking about. I accept it now… This is my destiny. WOW. It’s amazing.
I’m sitting here enjoying the sounds of the birds passing by while looking at the Gulf Coast out of the side of my eye behind this computer screen. How in the world did I end up in this small town! It’s definitely His Will and His Grace! I picked this town off of the Google Map literally! Long story… but how he works ALL THINGS out for our Good is simply amazing. Who knew that the choices would lead to me finally having Peace? I had no idea. Thank Yahweh I am not the one leading my footsteps he is.
Does Contentment Mean Not to Grow and Succeed?
6 All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that God’s name and our teaching may not be slandered. 2 Those who have believing masters should not show them disrespect just because they are fellow believers. Instead, they should serve them even better because their masters are dear to them as fellow believers and are devoted to the welfare[a] of their slaves. These are the things you are to teach and insist on. 3 If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching,4 they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions 5 and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain. 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.~1 Timothy 6-10
This is one of the most misinterpreted scriptures out there. Which is why I wanted to post the entire thought that the disciple Timothy conveyed. So often only the first sentence of 1 Timothy 1:10 is quoted without the 2nd sentence or the previous paragraphs. This scripture ties together my entire thought today. We must have an attitude of gratitude, when you do, it shows, his light shines through and people wonder…What Is that? Why is Your Energy So High? We must stay away from anyone who complains and simply drains your energy at all costs even if they are family and friends. Even if you have to move to a place where everyone is happy like you are Finally, when you get into HIS bosom in this way and rest comfortably in Abba’s arms… HE will bless you because you are now allowing HIS will to lead your footsteps. His blessings are so great! When you have HIS blessings, as you strive for greatness to do His Will he will bless you in so many ways to further His agenda. This is why I am able to sit here today and spend over 8 hours in between calls updating this blog and finally writing my newest post.
Faith Without Works Is Dead
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your[a] works, and I will show you my faith by my[b] works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?[c] 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[d] And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.~James 2:14-26
So I am sitting here, doing the good works of Yahweh, praying with repentance and supplication that these works will be multiplied to bring You to His Kingdom through my testimony HalleluYah!
