Praying in Faith

The most significant gift I have been given is learning to pray. Not that you can pray wrongly, but understanding how God hears your prayers is a gift from the Lord.

Powerful prayers are those that you are grateful for having what you have not seen come to pass. For example “Father God thank you for the joy you bring to my life, I enjoy a happy faith-filled life” even if this is not yet come to pass. Let God know you’ve received it and grateful.

When you pray in faith, I can tell you from my own experience it works. Pray as though something has already come to pass. prayer, God, faith

One important note about prayer. Don’t beg God. You don’t have to beg God for him to hear you. If you have a sick child or loved one. We tend to say “God I’m begging you” this is not necessary. God is a God of love, he does not need you to beg. Go to him with a faith-filled heart and see what his grace will do in your life.

God moves by faith in him. You live your life in hope and rest, let God do the rest. He has taken a terrible season in my life, teaching me that if I’m faithful in faith, I can find peace. Not just peace but miracles, blessings that are far beyond my imagination.

Try earnest faith-filled prayer, it will change your life. I’m grateful beyond words for what prayer has done in my life!

Sad News Staying in Faith Helps

Faith has been a struggle for me. It’s been foreign to me most of my life. For the last few months, I have put in some real effort in staying in faith. Trusting that life will unfold as it should, allowing God to move through my life without my will interfering.

Today that was put to the test. Receiving some bad news that I had hoped would go another direction. What I do understand better than I would have in the past, is God is moving the pieces of my life around to align me with my destiny. Yes, it hurts, but I have the understanding now that growth is often painful.sad, faith, god, jesus

The pain I feel is not “oh my God my life is over.” It’s sad that a chapter of my life is over, I had truly hoped it would move forward. God, has seen fit to move me in another direction. It’s time to embrace that and get excited about what is to come.

For the first time in my life, I’m not letting a sad situation destroy everything. This time I won’t lose the battle. Time for a change with an open heart.

This time my life is going to take a different path. For the first time in my life, I choose not to allow the enemy to win me over. This time I am following a path of faith in God. Happy, fun, and brand new chapter in my life!

Business Blessing

Last night a fantastic turn of events happened to me late at night. It was pretty cool indeed.

Having made a couple of mistakes on eBay that cost me some money and time. Yesterday, I had logged in to fix the issues and did. I had to order a couple of new parts at my expense but was happy to fix the problem.business blessing, blessings,busines

After paying for the items because eBay had taken our money from PAYPAL to put in reserve until the issue was resolved. How I spent early that day would take three days to clear, and my items from my supplier would sit idle for that time. Did not stress just told God we would roll with it. Nothing I could do to change the outcome, so I thought!

About ten thirty last night I was praying and meditating. I visualized all these issues done, customers happy and I could move on with my life. As I contemplated all of the sudden my phone rang with an email alert.

Grabbed my phone to take a look and I was amazed. My supplier had fixed my issue and shipped all of my items. Because thirty minutes later they fulfilled my second order. Keep in mind this is between the hours of 10:30 PM & 11:00 PM far past regular business hours. I also received a sweet email from my sales rep. I never called to ask for any sort of help or favor.

God, has supernaturally stepped in to fix what I prayed and, visualized as being done. This was late at night what are that chances of these folks even being open. This was a business miracle, and I am so grateful. This all happened while I was praying!

Believe it and see it in your mind. I was blessed when I saw no way to fix the issue. God makes a way when we see no way. What a blessing!

Give Up Control Have Faith

One of the hardest things for me to let go of is my wanting to control aspects of my life. If you’re going to have faith in the Universe (God) you have to let, go. It can’t be a negotiation with God over what part of your life he will run and what part we will run.

 No matter what we must give him full control. It does not mean that you say okay God I need my life saved because of this issue whatever that might be. Then do nothing. It will take work on your part to have the patience that God works in his good time.

Learning to become a better person, doing good works in your life to bring a better you to the world. Worry about that over what the outcome will be. The outcome is completely out of your control. The moment you say I got this and you impose your will to that which is in disarray. Nothing positive happens, form that.

We must learn to live not in our head but our soul. You must think about this for a while. How do I do the work?

Here is an example of working in faith:

Let’s say your marriage is at total risk of divorce. Separated, not talking it’s terrible. You want to call your spouse all the time, trying to work it out. How do we get through this time letting God work through us? Let’s say you know you want this person, you know you want the marriage, but the other partner does not at this time.

Here is how we work from our spiritual side and not our head.

 

  • Pray to God for guidance for YOUR life. Ask him where he would like you to be. Don’t beg him to fix your marriage, never begin prayer. He hears you, don’t beg.
  • Start doing things that bring a better you to the marriage should it come to pass that you get back together. Read books, go to therapy, pray for God’s will to be done in your life. God’s will not
  • Allow for time to pass. If it’s God’s will for the two of you to be together, you will be. Be open to the idea that maybe this person is getting moved out of your life so that your destiny can reveal itself. You don’t know! Let life open to you, not because of you! Think!
  • The pain you suffer will pass. It’s the equivalent of someone passing away when we lose a spouse. Don’t listen to all the garbage in your head, “well if I could tell them this, they would understand” stop it now. If you look to the trash in your head, you will lose for sure.
  • Have faith that no matter what happens your life will be better for this trial. If you get back together and all is well. Or if you end up divorced and life presents a NEW season for you.

If you seriously want change, then you must be willing to change. Some pain will come to our heart. Here is the real kicker. It may not work out but on the other hand, it might. Have faith that everything will turn out just as it should. Be open-hearted to receive God’s favor.Happy, Marriage, Spouse

However, should you desire change to happen naturally? Then who knows what life has in-store for you. Believe me, and I do understand the pain of a breakup. At times it can be debilitating. We have to look up and say “okay God I don’t understand, and right now I don’t get it” then be willing to help ourselves, but let God handle our outcome.

I don’t doubt your pain. What I can tell you is if you follow in faith that life will open up to you as it should, life will get better. It will begin to get better quickly with faith. You may have to talk to God hundreds of times a day. That’s okay. He has an open ear ready to hear you. In situations like divorce, financial and loss we tend to beg God. Don’t beg in prayer.

When you pray, have it be about the outcome you desire. “I thank you, God, for the healing you have brought to the hearts of my spouse and me.” Pray as though you already have that which you desire as if you already have it. Don’t ask for something to be fixed; it already is through your faith in God.

God will unfold for you the destiny of your life. That may be something completely different than what you expected. The fantastic news is that it will be bigger, better, more joy, more peace and so much more than you could have ever supposed to happen. That is the fantastic gift that awaits you if you will only have faith!

Have too vs. Want too

Our lives are based on many things that we end up settling for because we don’t see a way to achieve what we desire the most. Do you want to continue to pay for status quo? I don’t!

Throughout our lives, we have been conditioned to believe that without an education, money, status and dozens more, why you cannot achieve. Your brain tells merely you NO. If you’re a spiritual person, the enemy gets in your head and convinces you that you will be nothing more than what you are today. Horse Manure!

Recondition your thoughts with faith. Not wishful thinking, hope! Big difference in that statement. You cannot just say to God, I want to write the next great novel that tops the New York Times bestseller list and not type a word. You have to take action to achieve what you desire. Work and I mean hard work.

The Life You Want

 

Most of us have had the question posed to us: “If you could do anything in the world what would you do?” If you put aside a dream in your life what is stopping you from picking it back up? The answer to that question is your head, doubt, and fear.

If like me you would like to live the last half of your life doing what you want to do not what you have to do, we need to make some radical changes. Not impossible changes, fundamental changes, big difference.

Here are a few things you need to make a part of your life now:

  1. Don’t worry about the how you will do it. Believe as though it already exists in life now. This is incredibly powerful when you see it in your mind and believe it in your heart. The how will present itself when you least expect it.
  2. Stay out of your head. Overthinking kills dreams faster than anything. Believe in your heart.
  3. Take steps every day towards the new goal. It can be researched, educating yourself, praying, visualization, it can be anything that moves you forward.
  4. Fight to keep negative thoughts out of your head. Also, don’t listen to nay-sayers. Sadly that can be family. What’s in your heart is what matters. Follow that which calls to your soul.
  5. Fear is not part of your equation anymore. When you come from a place of fear you will not attain your goal. Don’t be afraid to have the life you want. Surprisingly folks self-sabotage life because they’re conditioned to be frightened.

Thoughts are the killer of all dreams, negative thoughts will drag you down. Don’t listen to them. If you want something bad enough, negative thinking has to be conditioned to not overtake your mind.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”–Michael Jordan
