Ok, so we’re gonna get a little personal on today’s episode. You see, I haven’t always been the “cheerful” and “joyful” kind. Growing up I was grumpy and tended to see life through gloomy lenses. Just ask my mom.
Things got really bad during my teen years (hormones… blame it on the hormones). It was a roller coaster of emotions. My mother tried her best to teach me about seeing the “glass half full” vs. my take of a glass half empty. I was stubborn.
If you’ve ever felt life is not fair or believe there is not enough goodness to go around – for you – I hope this message serves you well. I speak from personal experience when I say that abundance is for you – today. Jesus came for just that. The enemy wants you to believe there’s not enough. He knows scarcity will destroy dreams, friendships, and your faith. But abundant living begins with your mindset.
On today’s episode, we explore the difference between a scarcity and abundant mentality + I share a power prayer that will equip you claim an abundance mentality.
Do you find yourself putting your projects aside because others ask for help with theirs? Do you feel guilty when you say, “no” to someone? Do you find yourself frustrated that you can’t seem to get your stuff done?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then you may need help protecting your time. Actually, we all need to protect our time – because there are “time bandits” ready to steal our precious time. These bandits are disguised as: favors, let me pick your brain, let’s have lunch, can you please help me with _____, social media surfing, etc.
Ok, let’s be honest. We all mean well and want to give, but there must be clear boundaries. You must know your time is valuable. If you don’t put yourself first, others will put their agenda on the forefront. Your plans will be on the sidelines – and that is not God’s plan for you.
On today’s episode, we discuss three tips to help you believe in the value you have to offer and protect your time. You are responsible to make the best of your day, so take charge of your time.
Lots has happened these past weeks and I found myself feeling ungrateful. My focus has been on the lack vs. the fullness. Ever feel that way? There’s many factors that play into this, but the Lord reminded me that to grow in gratitude, I must be faithful with what I have today.
When I find myself feeling stuck or frustrated, I know it’s that time again, where I have to re-evaluate and make tough decisions – those are never fun. But the reality is it’s necessary to get my heart back to it’s rightful place.
On today’s episode, we discuss the importance of being faithful with what we have today. Not living in the past or hoping for the future, but living for this moment. Because we can’t enjoy God’s blessings, when we’re so focused on the lack.
Ok, I have to confess. There are people in my life that I disagree with their decisions or just bump heads with. And that’s ok. But there’s times when I can get so consumed by others not “changing” that it can get messy. That’s not ok on my books. It’s energy zapping, for sure.
But here’s the thing, most of these individuals we want to change are people closest to us. It can be our husband, child, family member, or close friend. Other times, it’s people in authority positions (your boss or pastor), which complicates things. You get me, right?
We all have people we wish would change – because if they did, life would run smoothly. I get it. I have a four year old going on 14. Pray for me.
On today’s episode, we discuss three principles that I hope help you see difficult people or circumstances from a new perspective. These three principles have helped me stay focused on what I can control vs. what I can’t. Enjoy!
