If this were the 1990s, I might agree that there are some limitations that hold us back from accomplishing some of the things that we desire to accomplish. BUT it isn’t. In fact, in this new millennium, there are so many things that we can do without “permission” or restriction. There is literally no excuse that I am willing to accept from anyone who says that (s)he can’t live his/her dreams.
I am happy to finally announce a new product that I created just for you! I wrote an ebook entitled How to Take Control Of Your Life & Make It Amazing! I have been listening to you when you were saying how you can’t do certain things because of whatever, and I came up with the idea to help you out. Read more →
Everywhere you turn, there are people striving to live their dreams and their best lives. Some even turn to God, looking for some guidance on how they can accomplish their goals, and experience a better way of life. The answer is in this week’s Wisdom Wednesday lesson, and is much simpler than you might think.
In Proverbs 16:9 of the King James Version of the Holy Bible, the scripture reads: “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.” A quick thumb through the dictionary reveals that to devise means to plan or invent by careful thought. That leads us to gather the understanding that each of us chooses our what, while God handles the how of it all. I don’t know about you, but that gets me excited! All you have to do is choose what you want to do with your life. Then, dedicate that thing to God, and he will make it successful.
If you want to be a performing artist, a doctor, lawyer, athlete, it doesn’t matter. Have fun! Just make sure that God is at the forefront of whatever you do. You don’t have to worry about the how at all. Psalm 119:133 says, “Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.” As long as we study God’s word, and meditate on it every day, we can rest assured that our steps are ordered by God, and that whatever path we are on, we are headed in a prosperous direction.
Are you on the best path for your life? After watching this week’s episode, how will you change what you have been doing? Let me know, in the comments below, what your biggest takeaway was from this week’s lesson.

All that matters today is how you respond. What happens is never as important as how you respond to it. Set an intention and expectation for the day, and look for things that fit within them throughout your day. With the election results, there are many people who will be putting out negative energy today, but you don’t have to accept it or participate in doing the same.
Be mindful of what you want for yourself at all times. Hold onto you ideas of the life that you want. Dismiss anything that doesn’t cater to creating that life, and show others the way. How you respond to situations and circumstances lets you know how far you have come, and how far you still need to grow. If you find that your response it less than desirable, don’t give up and don’t beat yourself up over it. You are human. You get another chance to get it right.
When you are working on something, especially change, you won’t always get it right on the first try. Love yourself enough to allow mistakes to be made. Forgive yourself, and look forward to responding more positively the next time. Go out into the world today ready to respond with love and understanding!
