Life filled dreams with a Messianic perspective

Shout It Out!

Okay, so I am feeling a bit crazy (or meshuga) today.  On my Facebook page, I suggested everyone stand outside and shout, “This is the day that the Lord has made.  I will rejoice and be glad in it!”  What?  You’re asking me if I did this?  Hold on…….waiting, waiting waiting.

Okay, I’m back.  Yes, I just did it!  (I think my neighbors think I’m nuts.)  Crazy?  Maybe.  But, if we can get over ourselves and do crazy things, how much could we influence the environment around us?  How much could we influence our community?  How much could we influence our own family by bringing some joy into each day by doing crazy stuff to glorify the Lord?

When we say something out loud, it really changes the atmosphere around us.  Speak out the solution!  If you’re going through financial struggles, say, “My God shall supply all my needs according to his glorious riches in Messiah Yeshua”.  If you are feeling depressed, sad or angry declare, “The joy of the LORD is my strength.”  If you are sick speak out, “By His stripes I am healed!”

For every circumstance that you are going through right now, God has an answer.  Speak it out!  Or better yet, shout it out!  Let the devil know who owns your day.  You do not belong to him, you were purchased with a price by Yeshua who paid for it all!

Hallelujah!!!

Are We Having Fun Yet?

Okay, so another day is over.  Today was a bit long because there was so much to do.  When we have a lot of stuff we are taking care of, we have a tendency to get tired and we can feel worn out.

I know this can be a challenge, but take some time today and just stop what you are doing and do something you enjoy; even if it is nothing.

It can be the simplest thing like look at or smell a flower.  Look at shapes in the clouds.  Watch a cat sitting in the grass.  Listen to the wind in the trees.  Look at the mountains, or the ocean or just out your window.

You will be amazed at how you feel refreshed when you take just a small amount of time just for you.  God is in the small things around us.  Enjoy His presence in them.

Speak It Out!

I am reminded again about speaking into the atmosphere.  God’s word is true and it WILL change the atmosphere around you, which means it WILL change your circumstances.

Need a change in your situation?  Speak out the Word of God.  Need financial supply?  Speak out the Word of God.  Need healing?  Speak out the Word of God!  He does have all your needs supplied according to His riches in Messiah Yeshua.  (Philippians 4:19)

SPEAK IT OUT!

Bad News

Ever get bad news and it ruins your whole day?

Well, I received news yesterday that wasn’t fun.  It hit me pretty hard, so I was off balance (spiritually speaking) for awhile.  I went to a local church last night to help with a ministry team.  After I came back, I felt a lot better.

When we are feeling pressed on all sides, see who there is around you that you can encourage.  It won’t make the circumstances go away (at least not right away) but it will help you not go down into a pit.  God sees your circumstances and He DOES have an answer.

Take a “time out” today.  Take some time and go out and “clean out your head”, as my friend used to say.  Let God fill you up today and refresh your soul.  Let’s face it, you really need it.  And don’t you deserve it?  I’ll answer for you, “Yes You Do!”

Clear Out the Clutter

If you are like me, you have way too much stuff.  The one thing that I am doing now is clearing out the clutter.  I am going to have a garage sale and I’m sure someone else will thinks it’s a treasure.

There is something freeing about cleaning up excess.  This is a good time of year to go through your home and get rid of stuff you don’t need.  Take one closet, one room, one thing at a time so you are not overwhelmed.

You will be amazed at how good you feel.  You may even want to start inviting people over again.  How awesome is that?!

Spring is Here!

With the beautiful weather starting to come in, spend some time outdoors. If your whole life is just seeing the inside of your office, your home or whatever, you are missing out of one of God’s biggest blessings.
Go see if the trees are budding yet. Do you have wildflowers coming up in your yard? Do you hear the birds singing more than they did a few weeks ago?
When we take time for ourselves, we get rejuvenated. We all need time to have our souls refreshed. We need to take a bit of time each day so God can speak to us. Most of the time we are too busy with stuff that, in the long run, will have little or no meaning in the scheme of things.
So, I encourage you, take some time today and smell the roses, as the old saying goes. You’ll be surprised on how much better you feel.

Have You Started?

Well, you read about living your dreams, but have you taken the first step?  Have you written down your dreams and goals?  Did you write down 50 things that you would like to do in your life?

Too busy?  You will never slow down unless you decide to.  Okay, so take 10 minutes right now and write down some of your goals and dreams.  Okay, 5 minutes then.  You can do this.  Your life won’t change until you take the first step.

Are you waiting for God to change it for you?  He is asking you to make the first step.  Faith without works is dead.  Take a baby step and see how God will meet you in an awesome way!

Have another dream-filled day!

Live Your Dream

How many of us really live what we dream of doing?  Why do so many of us just settle for what is out there and not really go after our dreams?

For many of us, we have just given up.  We think that dreams are for when we were young, but some day you just “have to grow up” right?  Wrong!!

God put your dreams in your heart to fulfill them.  They are there because that is who He created you to be.  Write down your dreams and pray over them and ask God to show you what the steps are for you to fulfill them.  It is NEVER too late to start.  You have a destiny and it is still waiting for you.  Aren’t you tired of living the life you are living?  Aren’t you tired of wondering when someday will come?

All of us get discouraged.  All of us feel like giving up at one time or another, or maybe every day.

Take time to dream today.  Go out and write down 50 things you would like to do before you die or before the Lord comes back.  Either way you win!

Have a dream-filled day!
