What’s Your Truth

your truthMorning Inspiration…. Today is the day of Truth. What’s Your Truth? If you are honest with yourself and understand what your Truth is your self-worth, self-acceptance and self-love won’t be shaken by a crazy break-up, a horrible comment someone has said to you or about you or a little weight gain. It’s ok to talk to yourself and have an understanding that your Truth is fine with you. The only one that matters is you and if you good with your Truth then who cares what everyone else says?

In the words of Iyanla Vanzant:

Nothing destroys self-worth, self-acceptance and self-love faster than denying what you feel. Without feelings, you would not know where you are in life. Nor would you know what areas you need to work on. Honor your feelings. Allow yourself to feel them.

Before Careful Everything is not Always Glimmer and Gold

pathMorning Inspiration…. Yesterday after going on Facebook and wishing my fav a Happy Birthday, I decided to read one of his blog post and it was so in tuned with what goes on in our daily lives I had to share… Because something sounds real good and might be all shiny on the outside doesn’t mean that is good and will shine shine for you all the time. Be careful with the paths you choose everything is not always Glimmer and Gold

The Journey Page 1

As he walked down the dark street he came across a man. The wandering had made him friendly so he greeted him and stuck out a hand.

“What’s your profession?” The man asked.
“I do many things, but I pour my soul into my poetry.”
“You are a poem.”
“I am a Poet.”
“Oh, because you write poetry?”
“Precisely.”
“I see what you mean, but you can’t just say a thing like that and expect people to believe you without a shred of evidence. A poet would certainly give us some poetry?”
“Yes, I believe so, but what if I told you everything isn’t what it seems?”
“I would be forced to say I know.”

  Why You Can’t See God

If you could see God it would make doing good too easy,

believe me.

If you could see God physically,

as he displays his omnipotence

you wouldn’t dare do evil.

Of course these theories

that scientists come up with sound good,

but they should.

Devotion is real

only when unfaithfulness is possible.

Every religion has a view,

but the Ten Commandments

will always hold true.

Whatever you pray for

God will deliver.

Try to stay warm in this cold world

that will make you shiver.

“That was grand. The definition of poetry.”
“Thank you, your kind words bring pleasure to the universe.”
“Have you heard of the Poets Gauntlet?”
“I have not.”
“Are you a Poet?”
“Yes.”
“One of the best?”
“That’s for you to decide.”
“I have decided! And the Poets Gauntlet is a competition to see who is the best poet in the world. Allow me to represent you.”
“Why should I?”
“You need a reference. And the prize is 30 million euros. But you’ll risk a lot.”
“Like what?”
The man began to tap his feet.”There will be time for that. You’re walking this way and so am I. We can discuss details on the journey.”
“Fair enough. I planned on stopping for breakfast at the next establishment I stumbled upon.”
“We must stop at my home first before our journey. It’s on the way, I can cook you a breakfast fit for a king, no strings attached.”
“I’m not sure what journey you have in mind,  but omlettes are always better with three eggs.”
“This may be true, we can talk about that too.”
“You invite me over for breakfast at this odd hour, I commend you on the kind gesture, but I must know your name before we begin our journey.”
“I have a lot of names Daniel, but you can call me Satan.”

Husbands

Morning Inspiration…You should always feel needed as a woman,wife,mother,sister,daughter,friend,lover, and  companion

our husbands“I used to think my husband didn’t need me. When my boys were really young, I gave them all of my time and attention. I wanted to be a really good mom so I read all kinds of books about parenting and kids’ learning styles. I kind of became a student of my kids so I could meet all of their needs.
The only problem was, I gave so much to my kids that when my husband got home from work in the evenings I had no energy and focus left to give him.

One night J.J. and I were having a challenging “conversation” and he ended up saying he felt like our marriage wasn’t a priority to me anymore. I got all defensive and told him the kids needed me more because they were children and he was a grown man.

But that night, God showed me that my priorities and my perspective were off kilter. He helped me see that my husband does need me just in a different way than my kids.

Our spouses need to know they matter to us; that we want to spend time with them and meet their needs too.” – Renee Swope

Discipline

disciplineMorning Inspiration…I am working on discipline…it is easy to control somethings while hard to get started on others. I am challenging all of you to do something that has been so hard to accomplished for the next 21 days, so we can work on our disciplines

In the words of Iamrennyren…

Discipline is a form of controlling your thoughts. Sometimes you find yourself in situations and wonder how you’ve gotten yourself into a particular situation. If only you wold have taken a moment/few seconds to think about it all before the fact, things would have turned out different. God gives us things that we should and shouldn’t do, some are easy to follow and some are hard. Just as a parent tells a kid not to do something, God tells us for a great reason, we won’t understand until later. He tells us no lies and only has our best interest.

Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.-Proverbs 1:7
