I am  excited to announce my next FREE Teleconference Call for the month of August.
This month’s Free Teleconference Call will feature Ms. Tonya Chandler, founder of Journey to Wellness and Mrs. Chatonia Smalls , Licensed Master Social Worker, as we focus on a Healthier and Happier You!
We often deal with setting health and wellness goals when it comes to our bodies and maintaining a lifestyle change with proper exercise and diet, but we overlook the need for a Healthy mind and spirit. Join us on the call Sunday, August 20th @ 7pm as these Ladies share tips to help you become a Healthier and Happier You!
I will also be doing a drawing from the pool of registrants for a copy of my first Devotional, Be Attitudes : A Devotional Journey to a Healthier and Happier You.

Grace and Peace,

Mary

Help me see what you see

Morning Meditation:…The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 NLT

For far too long we have allowed feelings of inadequacies to stop us in our tracks. Today, I challenge you to shatter the lies that have held you captive. Shatter, destroy, smash into pieces every negative belief that you have held about
yourself over the years. It is now time to believe what God has said about you. It is now time to believe the best.

You are good enough.

You are worthy enough.

You are smart enough.

You do deserve the best out of life and your relationships.

You do have what it takes to succeed in life, business, ministry etc.

You were uniquely designed to give life to those that God has called you to reach.

You are an asset to those around you. You are a gift to this world.

Whatever God has assigned your hands to do, go forth with all your might knowing that God has given you everything that pertains to life and godliness.

Lord, open our eyes to what you see. Help us to see the truth about ourselves. Help us to see not through the eyes of our failures or even our feelings but take confidence in the gifts, talents, abilities and the strength You have given
us.

Grace and Peace,

Mary

Can we talk? 

Standard

As I sit and pen my thoughts this morning, I am reminded of Jesus’s experience in the Garden of Gethsemane.  It was at that place He had to make one of the toughest decisions in His life. Should He go forward to the cross, knowing that
this was what He was destined to do? Or should He just walk away from it all because of the pain He knew was ahead.

Many of you find yourself right here today. You are at a place of transition. You are facing a crossroad and really finding it hard to hear clearly.  There are decisions that must be made but everything seems out of place right now.  You
are frustrated and afraid of what is too come. I want to encourage you not to give up.

I challenge you to pause and listen to your life for a moment. Has God ever turned His back on you?  Hasn’t He always provided the direction and the guidance you needed? I had to come to a place of surrendering my will to God during times
like these, just as Jesus did in the garden. I have found that what I want and what God wants are not always the same.  During my walk with God, I have even encountered roadblocks and detours that took me totally in a different direction.  It was a reminder
to me that God knows what is best. He sees what I can’t see.

It is at times like these we must not forget that He is just waiting for us to come to Him for instructions. He longs to talk to us, if we would only pause and come to Him as it says here in
Jeremiah 33:3 (Amp) Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).
Be of good courage today knowing that God is not surprised by anything that you are facing right now. In fact, He is with You to strengthen, settle, and establish you in the direction that He has for you to go.

Let me pray for you right now,

Father I thank you for my brothers and sisters reading this post right now. I pray that they will not lose hope in this season of their lives. Teach them to recognize Your voice, Your direction, and most of all the guidance and the instructions
You give to us daily. I pray that You will open the eyes of their understanding. Help them to see what You see Lord. Your Word tells us in Psalm 32:8 that You instruct us with Your eyes upon us. May we learn to trust Your direction and Your plans for our very
lives. In Jesus name, Amen

Take action: Take a moment and journal your disappointments to God and ask Him to share His perspective on your situation.

Grace and Peace to you,

Mary

There’s Greatness Within You!

God didn’t give us a cowardly spirit but a spirit of power, love, and good judgment.  2 Timothy 1:7 (GW)

Why am I still here? This is your daily cry as you ponder the deep dissatisfaction with your state in life. Yet, you choose to do nothing about it.  You blame everyone else for why you have not accomplished more, only to see deep within that it is not their fault. It is just easier for you not to take the blame.  You lash out at those that love you because they see the potential in you and desire to help you move forward.  Still yet, you isolate yourself because you feel you don’t have what it takes to be all that you can be. It’s time for a change.

 Stop complaining about issues you are not willing to do something about. The truth of the matter is you are afraid, afraid to take the next steps. You are afraid of stepping out and failing. You are afraid of unleashing the real you. Fear of the unknown has you trapped in a cycle you long to break free from.  When will you see that you never have to do it alone? You have help available.  God has already given you everything that you need to live your best life.

Can’t you see that your life is of great value? Every waking moment, every hour, every second of the day is a precious gift from the Heavenly Father. Don’t waste your time and energy feeling sorry for yourself.  You hold the power in your hands to do something about where you are. What you don’t like, change it.  You have not even begun to discover the wealth that is on the inside of you. Be intentional when it comes to discovering what is within you!  Today is the day! Now is the time for you to move forward with determination and vigor and make your life count.  There is greatness on the inside of you!

Father, I pray for my brothers and sisters today that find themselves at the point of giving up. I ask that you infuse them with inner strength. Encourage their hearts to continue even in the midst of challenges. Allow them to see and know the wealth you have placed within them. In Jesus name Amen.
