It's Just Tuesday!

Today is the first day of the year which for many is a day that represents new beginnings! It’s the day that begins the new diets, the new exercise regimens, and new commitments. I love new commitments just as much as the next person but what I’ve come to realize is that New Year’s Day is not a magical day. It doesn't erase things. If you don’t intentionally make a mindset shift - it’s just Tuesday! 



To create new habits or break old ones you have to be intentional about your willingness to do so. It has nothing to do with it being January 1st but has everything to do with your desires and your actions. When these two collide results are produced! 

One way to set your mindset shift in motion is to develop a defining word for the new year. This word will guide your actions and be the word that shapes your movement for the new year. To figure what your word should be, jot down some words that resonate with you. Your list could look like: 

Productive
Do
Move
Grow

Then from your list pray about which word resonates with you most! For me my 2019 word is: Produce. Take some time and discover what your word is for 2019. 


It is the first day of the new year but remember, without an intentional mindset shift, it’s just Tuesday! 

Have a very happy and productive 2019!

When Love Accepts

Is there any perfect person out there? Nah! Of course not! we all come with something and are constantly being molded into something better. The Lord is developing all of us and works with us right where we are. What a blessing it is to be accepted right where you are, how you are - flaws and all. When Love Shows Up, Love Accepts. 



Love doesn’t try to change you but rather pushes you to be your best self. Love admires your quirks and finds humor in your ratchetness (yeah you got some ratchet!). Love may not like everything you do or say but it accepts it and offers a kind, ‘bless your heart’ declaration and scurries on about the day. Love takes hold of your deepest flaws and secrets and handles them with extreme care and of course - love.  

Love’s acceptance causes you to feel secure, safe and empowered as if you can jump the largest hurdle in one leap!  When love accepts, you can be your true, authentic self, flowing in your best rhythm. 

1 Corinthians 13:7 (NCV) - Love patiently accepts all things. It always trusts, always hopes, and always endures.

Convenience Ain’t Free!

A few weekends ago I was blessed with a ticket to see the production ‘Jesus’ at Sight and Sound in Pennsylvania. What an awesome production it was and the set changes were amazing! After the play my group traveled over to the Shady Maple (I think that’s the name) buffet. The buffet choices were endless. At the grill station there was steak, salmon and blackened catfish. The catfish was outstanding! The line at the grill station was long because they were cooking everything on site. As I ventured over to the line to get me a piece of (ok another piece of) catfish, I started to turn around because the line was just too long and I did not want to wait! My cousin happened to be at the front of the line so I asked him to get my fish for me. Right in that moment I made eye contact with my Pastor and he looked like “no she’s not jumping this line”. I felt bad for a split second but not bad enough to recant my request for the catfish. But it did make me think further about how people do not like to wait for anything. Why?   


Waiting can be hard. We live in a microwave society where everything is produced right away. No one wants to wait for anything these days. You don’t wait for the customer service rep, you use self-service. You don’t wait in line, you order on your phone and pick up. You have a structured settlement? Can’t wait, you need your cash NOW! Everything is now, now and right now! We do not like to wait for anything because we love convenience but what I’ve discovered: convenience ain’t free! 

There is always a cost for convenience, sometimes the cost is small and sometimes it’s massive. The convenience fee you pay Cash App for dispensing your money instantly is small. The convenience fee you pay for settling for just “ok” versus “God’s best” for your life is massive!

So I hear you asking 'what convenience fee do you mean?' Well let me provide a short list:

When you put your desires above what God's Word says 
Fee = Life Becomes A Hot Mess (Filled with Disappointment)

When you settle for Mr. Right Now instead of waiting on God's best
Fee = Life Becomes A Hurt Mess (Filled with Heartbreak and Headache)

When you decide to do things the world's way instead of standing firm on God's Word 
Fee = A Whole Mess (Filled with Catastrophe and Confusion) 


Whoa! These fees are enormous and will eat up any life that you have left! In these instances, convenience isn't worth it! Don't settle, wait on God's best and always remember: convenience ain't free!
