Where are you living?

Sometimes you have to just suck it up, put on your big girl pants and go where LIFE IS. It's easy to seclude yourself, and remain in your own thoughts but sometimes you have to get up and go before it's too late.

Maybe I'm just talking to myself, or maybe I'm talking to you, whoever, or whatever it is that's got you in a rut just shake yourself off and go where life is. It'll get easier day by day.

Live in the NOW. Live for TODAY. Tomorrow is not promised, so while you've still got breath in your lungs go and live the life that was set out just for YOU!

Sometimes people ask me what made me start a blog. My response changes each time but the fundamental reason is this. It's not to impress anyone, not to get any special accolades but it's to live for today, to help someone that cannot help themselves. I've put many things that I've wanted to do off until tomorrow until one day I woke up and realized why put off what I can do today, for tomorrow, because tomorrow may not come. But while I'm here today I can make an impact even if it's just one persons life. So please, don't put off what you want, what you desire, what's nudging you any longer. I mean why should you? What are you waiting for? A platform? Resources? Something to fall out of the sky? Please, look around you, EVERYTHING you need is probably right there in your lap...just not in the package you're expecting. So live for today, whatever that may mean to you.

Forgive Me

Often times our blessing is right in front of us and we don't recognize it because of the packaging. Sometimes we're so focused on the confusion going on that we discredit the blessing God is giving us by strengthening our patient. Sometimes EVERYTHING we need is right there where we need it.

Today stop and take a step back and ask God to show you things not through your eyes but his. I'm sure afterwards you'll be on your knee's asking for Forgiveness because we don't realize just how blessed we are, and understand when we don't acknowledge what he's done for us he hurts too. Stop focusing on the problem and start focusing on the problem solver.

This poem above is from a good friend of mine. I think it's fitting for what some of us need to do today, right now, myself included.

"For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." (Rom 8:5-6)

*What have you been too focused on today*

Love you lots.
