I am the light of the world

LISTEN TO TODAY’S MESSAGE

Today’s message is on Matthew 5:14: You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.”

We each have choices in how we are going to project ourselves out in the world. Recently I posted that we are 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we respond to it. God built us each to shine. Matthew 5:14-16 states: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

We love because He first loved us

LISTEN to today’s message here

Today’s message is on 1 John 4:19: “We love because He first loved us

Today is about God’s fearless love, our verse today is short and sweet and well, it’s kind of a representation of how God loves you. His love doesn’t come with conditions or all of these extra things, he just loves you unconditionally. There was a time in my life when I wore a shield of fear over my heart to protect me from getting hurt. Many times it was also a crutch I leaned on as an excuse to avoid following my dreams, moving forward in my life, and trusting in myself, others, and even God. As I look back over parts of my journey I can see that going through a divorce and the way that I judged myself because of it, left me feeling fearful of being hurt, it also kept me being the one of my own biggest roadblocks for my future.

Are we there yet?….

I didn’t realize it had been this long since I have blogged…. 

O.M.G.

I really have been buried, (not in a negative way), in life. Life happens, right? Not only lots of changes for me, which seems to be the story of my life these days LOL but for real…. I said, Lord, are we done yet? 

are we done

For real, I was thinking the other day, (if you could only be inside of my head, its a busy place hehe) But my life was literally like groundhogs day everyday. And I would do the same thing every. single. day. I wanted change so BAD, did I manifest this into existence?

PROBABLY!

Under Construction…

I live in what is called ‘West Baton Rouge’, which is not exactly in Baton Rouge, but on the outskirts. Some would define this as ‘country’ because we are not in the city (thank you for that! LOL) You have to go over the Mississippi River in order to get to the west side. The bridge can be CRAZY at times, it definitely wasn’t built for the volume of people that live here, that is for sure! Well along the west side is around 4 towns (there are more, but I am sharing the ones that are the closest to the bridge) There is Port Allen that is right off of the bridge you take a right, if you take a left it leads you to Brusly, then Addis, and then finally Plaquemine. Going from Port Allen to a town called Brusly is literally like 2 miles away, and in that you have to go under the ramp where the bridge goes to go to Baton Rouge, then it takes you up on a ramp that is called the ‘intra coastal’. For the short of it, there is literally NO OTHER WAY to go across but here. You bring in traffic from all angles so it is an important travel area.

Faith Can Move Mountains

As I sit here this morning in prayer I said to God, why is it my last session? It finally was beginning to feel comfortable! And then I remembered even the words that came out of my own very mouth on this last episode of Soulfood Sundays with John Garay where I said “God doesn’t want us comfortable, because when we are comfortable we aren’t growing”. I immediately knew that was my answer. 

A few weeks ago the Lord put on my heart to once again make room in my schedule and ‘clear my plate’. I’m not exactly sure the whole reason, but this time around, I fully trust. It’s interesting that the last recorded Soufood Sundays was about Faith because I am right in the mix of my own faith in the process (God, you are so good!). I wish I could say “oh, it was in the masterplan to end with the session being on faith” because doesn’t it fit so well together? LOL, but the truth is, it just ‘happened’, and that is what is so awesome.

Perfect Love Casts Out Fear

What is your definition of ‘fearing God’? I have found that people have so many different views. Last night in SOULFOOD SUNDAYS, I took a leap into a touchy and uncomfortable topic to discuss. I shared how I felt hurt by ‘religious people’ and the church when it came to how they presented God. As this thought that one must FEAR GOD and be almost paralyzed with fear. 

Have you experienced this? Have you been taught to fear God and that you are a sinner and presented in such a way you feel dirty? Well you might want to listen to last nights message HERE so you can hear what I shared about my experience as well.

Fear is a Liar!

There is a saying, ‘a deer in headlights’, and I’m sure you have heard it but in case you haven’t it’s when a deer sees the lights from a car it can leave them frozen because they maybe feel caught off guard. They feel stuck and don’t know if they should go forward or go backward, or even it’s put them in a state of shock.

Sometimes our life challenges can bring on a similar message of fear….

Maybe you are thinking about making a bold change and move out of the state you live in, or maybe it’s a new job you are going after. You have this opportunity to make more money but right now you have a job that feels comfortable and stable. You know the job that is being offered will give you a fresh new start and an opportunity to learn something new, but you can’t shake off that fear of making the wrong decision.

On Purpose For a Purpose

I believe that everything happens on purpose for a purpose. And when you are in the state of grace and faith, things really do happen with less effort. And when you are in grace and faith you are in flow, and flow I mean aligned with the spirit of God. (Aligning to your Divine Purpose is to have unwavering faith)

The questions I want you to consider or meditate on are;

How do you see your life?

How do you see others in your life?

How do you see yourself?

How do you see your current situation?

Never break a promise to yourself

Ouch, this one hits home because I HAVE broken promises to myself. Yet, I don’t want to beat myself up, rather, moving forward I choose to practice the self-love I teach to myself. 

In a post earlier this week I shared “Because it’s the “small promises” that we break to ourself that sets an unhealthy unconscious pattern that whenever you set out to do something, you don’t believe yourself. It’s important that you don’t ever break that trust with yourself. I think of my kiddos when they were in High School and I always told them, “don’t lie to me, because once you do it’s harder to earn that trust back” and guess what? It’s no difference for yourself.” Continue reading “Never break a promise to yourself”
