What Does Your Life Speak Every day? 

Will God Be Proud Of What You Display?

What does your everyday witness say?  What is it about God that you display?       

What do your actions reveal each time?  How do you demonstrate God’s heart and mind?

What does your life put on view every day?   Are you representing God’s will and way?

What do your words reveal about God in you?   Can everyone see Him in all that you do?

Do you think of everyone as God’s wonderful design?  To all that you come in contact with are you loving and kind?   

What do your thoughts convey as you live?  How much thanksgiving to God do you give?  

What are your desires toward God the King?  What is the sacrifice that you bring?   

What is your lifelong plan and ambition?  Is God’s purpose for your life your work and mission?

How do you broadcast God’s good news to all you see?  How do you show the world that God gave you victory?

How can one tell if God is using you in a day?   Do you live your life in a prayerful way?

How do you tell God’s story through your life’s tour?  Does your life show you trust God more and more?

Can God count on you to tell of His faithfulness?  Each and every day do you give God your best?

How do you tell of God’s great love for you?  How does your life prove what God can do? 

What does your everyday witness say?  What is it about God that you display?

Born To Dance

Psalm 150:6    Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. 

girl in rain

Life is like a dance in the Creator’s plan, and every move we make should be guided by His hand.     God is the creator of everything, and we’re designed to be in harmony with His plan for our lives.    Psalm 16:11  You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Dance

I’m dancing in God’s almighty hand, flowing with Him, inside of me,  inside of His plan.      

His invigorating wind blows life upon my way, and I move according to what the spirit says.      The air is fresh, rich, and brand new; dance to God’s tune is what I do.       He quenches the thirst in my hungry soul, and every part of me is awakened and made whole.

girl-dancing-rain pink preppy lilly loverHis presence shields me with brilliant light, and within me I’m twinkling so bright.     “Dance with me Lord “,  my spirit utters with a shout; “move me with You around and about.     Let me leap with You as You rise to soar, embrace every part of me more and more.     Hear my heart speak to You my deepest love,  let it be beauty that reaches Your ears above”.      Every moment I live, my life dances to exclaim, the magnificent  wonder of God’s holy name.     

This dance is life I taste from God’s  airway, humbly I offer God my worship and praise.      I celebrate God way down in my soul’s core, I dance and I long to be with God more.    

I’m lost inside of God’s melody and song, all I want to do is dance all day long.      We dance together in perfect harmony, nobody but God and me.      He covers my space, He’s extremely large, and when we dance God is in charge.      I don’t see myself or the world out there, being in unison with God’s flow is my care.      What matters to me is God’s smiling face, and  His presence saturating my entire space.      My heart and soul do understand that I am a dancer in God’s hand.     

I don’t dance on my own, and when I do, I’m never alone.      My Father is my dance partner you see; we dance together, this is how it should be.      God  gives my life meaning and makes me complete, every time we dance it is so sweet.        I embrace riches and wealth with each dance, it’s me and my Father in a divine romance.      Dance is my worship, my praise and devotion, I reverence the Lord with every move and motion.      The Lord is the composer of my life dance not me, so along with His design I must flow freely.  

I yield myself into God’s healing groove, and my attention is solely on my King’s move.       I follow Him intensely as He leads, and I allow Him to minister to me and my needs.     He speaks and my soul  yearns for His mercy and grace, as I thirst to be a pleasure before His face.      My  spirit listens to His warm heart beat, and we become one, I’m complete.

It’s a grand experience dancing with my Friend; every time we meet I’m restored again.     My Lord uncovers His wisdom when we’re as one; revealing things about  the present and things to come.      He speaks to my heart in an unforgettable way, and I make room for everything  He has to say.

I’m a  dancer as God has made me to be, and He choreographs all that comes out of me.    God sets the stage for where my feet must travel, and as I obey Him His purpose in me unravels.       Dance is one way me and my Lord communicate; every time we get together it’s an original date.      It’s key for me to be in agreement with His flow, so I may arrive at the place He wants me to go.      The Lord expresses His thoughts about His purpose and plan, and He favors me to tell His story throughout the land.

Dance is a piece of my connection to the King, and  with each dance everything in me sings.       A touch from the Lord and I’m not as before; He washes me up with a brand new pour.      When I’m inside of God’s marvelous might, His agenda is my only sight.       Dancing with my Royal Priest is my deepest pleasure, to me this is a most precious treasure.

I long for more of God limitlessly and wide, and  I reach for wherever His presence resides.       Dancing with my Father is the best thing to me because I can let go and be ever so free.       No walls, no limits, no barriers in sight,    just me and my Father dancing all day and all night.      I wear God’s presence when I dance to His wish, and  in that moment I eat a heavenly dish.

I don’t have words to convey my dance position, but I know it’s a part of my life’s mission.       I’ll celebrate and dance more with a thunderous shout, and I’ll expand in my soul to soak up all of God’s pouring out.     

I’m dancing in God’s almighty hand, flowing with Him, inside of me,  inside of His plan.

Put On Your Armor

Fight For Your Future

Ephesians   6:13

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
My Journal of Praise knight-helmet George Hodan

Move in the direction of God’s promises for your life.  

Don’t Stop!

Life storms will break into your journey, and you’ll know that they are there.   They enter your life, and many times temporarily interrupt your plans.   Stay securely fastened to God’s hand, so that you can withstand the storm’s  pressure and opposition.   Don’t allow a life storm to sever your connection to the divine pathway that God has already paved for you.   God created you with purpose, and you have a legal right to live abundantly.   Expect to fulfill the plans that God has for your life.

See what the future has for you

Be peaceful and harmonious in the land; your legacy in God, you must command.   Dwell in a praying heart and soul; within your destiny, take control.    Be obedient to God at a quick rate; decide to meet God’s intended date.   Be patient with God, He’s patient with you; trust God because He knows what to do.
Hunger after righteousness and thirst for God more; declare victory in your life tour.    Be fervent in your faith  . . .    firmly stand; claim your birthright in the land.    Through it all,  in God,  plant your trust; let your hope in God give you a  thrust.    Yield to God and stay true; focus in on what God wants you to do.
Seek after God with confidence to find …    dreams and visions destined for your life time.      In each situation look for ways to improve and enhance; grow in the Lord at every chance.     Pay attention to the people that enter your sphere; Keep some distant and keep some near.     Let God build you up to become endurance strong, and in your heart always carry a song.       
Be mindful of feelings, and views that you entertain; Let your heart be filled with God’s word to sustain.     Be swift to turn your heart and mind away from uncertainty; live fixed in what God said shall be.    This is not a time to relax, and unwind with little to do; this is a season to aggressively break through. 

 This moment has been before you, expecting you to appear;

Fight for your tomorrow and PRAISE GOD that you are here.

I Had To Laugh About It

Life Storms Are Real

They Will Visit You Once And A While …

Somehow In The Midst Of It All Try To Put On A Smile.

Psalm 126:2 

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”

Laughter Made It Easier

A life-storm visited me and it had an aggressive attitude; surely it was in a really bad mood.    It caught me off guard, I must admit; and I didn’t know how to handle it.    I did my best to stay optimistic and remain upbeat; I really didn’t want this to be a defeat for me.   Some life-storms bring about a challenge that will test your faith in God; sometimes life gets really hard.

I put up a good fight. I threw a blow or two, but with all of that the storm just grew.    My soul began to get weary, “what shall I do before long”; I gave it my greatest effort and the storm grew strong.     I was praying in my heart all of the time, and I was trying to make sure I had on my God-mind.

The life-storm tossed me around, more or less; yet somewhere deep inside,  I knew I was blest.     The life-storm picked me up and was ready to fling me to the ground; surely I had to do something that would turn things around.     In a split second I remembered I’m safe and secure in God’s plan; and that He is holding me inside of His hands.

Suddenly, I got a tickle deep-seated in my soul; a laugher that was in a glorious jolly roll.     I was in an amusing way because I knew God was inside of my day.      Still, I didn’t have a clue of how to handle the matter; and my days remained in a scatter.    However, I realized the storm wasn’t as large as it appeared; and it really wasn’t something that I should have ever feared.

That thought brought laughter to my eyes, and my strength became larger in size.    I got so tickled thinking about winning the fight, and my thoughts and motivation became very bright.   Truly the storm was still hanging around, but it didn’t have such a big sound.     My laughter expanded way down in my soul, and my faith in God began to get bold.

The life- storm threw a terrible hit my way, the kind that would bring setback into my day.     My soul’s laughter got stronger and my thoughts became clear; somehow I knew that my deliverance was near.      Laughter filled my soul and kept me in a sound mind; I knew that the life-storm was running out of time.

The storm blew and had strong wind speed; the storm was determined to stay, yes indeed.     Laughter carried me through the wind’s outburst; if laughter wasn’t present, the storm could have been worst.     I’ve heard that laughter is medicine for the soul, and in this experience laughter played its role.

A life–storm did arrive on the scene; and in spite of the trouble it caused, laughter made my soul gleam.     Laughter made my problems a little easier to tolerate day by day; somehow I feel laughter is one way to pray.     In some way laughter made it easy to give positive responses to negative circumstances; triumphant was near, I had a winning chance.

A giggle would fill my heart when the storm ranted and raved because I knew I was not going to be its slave.     The storm really had a temper; it blew its top, but the laughter in my soul could not stop.    I knew this was a dark moment that must pass very soon, and laughter wiped away sadness and gloom.   Laughter became my friend in this season for a while; I was inside of a place like a bubbly child.

This may sound funny and crazy to hear, but laughter made the storm’s rage not seem as severe.     The storm did leave some rubble in my space, but it did not stop me from giving God praise.      Laughter is powerful. It’s a healing balm; I’ve witnessed the way it helped me remain calm.      I thank God for the gift of laughter that brings joy to my soul; thank you Lord for making laughter –  a bundle of cheer to behold.

Lord you thought of everything to make my spirit bright, and I am so grateful for your insight.      Perhaps God gave us laughter to erase hours of distress; maybe laughter is one way for us to move forward and progress.      Perhaps laughter is a way for our soul to talk in God’s ear; maybe it’s one way of God saying, “I’m always near”.

God told us, “in His presence there is fullness of joy” all the time; I believe laughter is one way to keep a happy heart and mind.      I’ve found that laughter is a weapon against some of life’s warfare; sometimes laughter is the only weapon that you have to wear.

Isn’t It Grand

God Made It That Way 

You’re A Part Of His Plan

My heart is grateful today, knowing that God has prepared a way for my life to travel.      My soul is glowing with happiness, knowing I’m a meaningful element in God’s plan.     Sometimes I wonder …   how did God put life together and make it flow?  How did He put a baby into a mother’s womb and cause it to grow?         Miracles and mysteries are within each day, and I’m happy to be a part of God’s glorious display.

Isn’t it strange how we are without a doubt here?  Isn’t it wonderful that we did appear?      Isn’t it strange how we don’t know the whole lot?  Isn’t it wonderful, how we have a distinct spot?      Isn’t it strange how many things perplex the mind?  Isn’t it wonderful, that we are a part of life’s time?       Isn’t it strange how day and night are every time precise?  Isn’t it wonderful that we witness nature’s spice?      Isn’t it strange how life showed up without our aid?  Isn’t it wonderful, that we are meticulously made?      Isn’t it strange how days come and go, again once more?  Isn’t it wonderful  that we’re within life’s  tour?       Isn’t it strange how step by step tomorrow we don’t know?  Isn’t it wonderful we continuously mature and grow?    

Isn’t it strange how there are opposites that exist?  Isn’t it wonderful how we fit in all of this?        Isn’t it strange how we can function, think, and feel?   Isn’t it wonderful that life is real?       Isn’t it strange how everything is in a set place?  Isn’t it wonderful that God prepared us a space?        Isn’t it strange how there are things not made by man; Isn’t it wonderful that we are a part of that plan?         Isn’t it strange how there are many mysteries untold;  Isn’t it wonderful that hidden things do unfold?        Isn’t it strange how we are without a doubt here?  Isn’t it wonderful that we did appear?

Every moment of life is a tender blessing from God’s  loving heart.     For every day that God has blessed me to see, my soul shouts thank you for letting this be.     For every tomorrow that the Lord allows me to live; praise and worship to God I’ll give.     
God  is inside of every tomorrow and He’s waiting for you to arrive!     Behind you is the past that’s  already written in your life story, and in front of you is a future that you have an opportunity to meet.    A new year is upon us.      Move toward  your future with joy in your heart,  and  expect to find  your brand new start.

A Future To Greet

We Shall Meet

The Future Is Bright With God As Your Light ! Photo Courtesy: David Wagner

I Have A Future Waiting For Me To Arrive

My name is written in tomorrows time; inside of a future for me by God’s design.    I’m happy to know that God is on my side, the future He created for me shall not hide.    I shall journey on my way with great passion to see, all of the sights that God has planned for me.

God says I have a future to meet …  I accept this as true –  Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope 

God purchased my future a long time ago; He has knowledge of the things I do not know.      God is working behind the scenes fulltime for me; this strengthens my faith to believe what I can’t see.     His love has wrapped around me so soft and strong; He’s with me all day and all night long.

I choose not to worry about days that I have not yet seen; I must keep my heart, soul, and mind fresh and clean.      I must focus on the promises that God has proclaimed… That He will take care of me during sunshine and rain.

My soul embraces God’s faithfulness toward me, in this I’m free; I believe in the future that God has for me.       A song is in my soul with a melody so sweet; I’m excited about the future that God says I’ll meet.

God’s word is true and His faithfullness is beyond measure – Psalm 36:5  Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds
