10 Powerful Lessons To Turbocharge You In 2016

Just like any other year, last year had it's victories, and it also had it's pitfalls. We survived thank G-d! We lived through it, we learned lessons...hopefully and we grew. Now it's time to embrace them and take them to another level. This new year In G-d's will, will definitely be a lot better than the last. Praise G-d!! Here are a few essential, powerful lessons I learned last year (some of them the hard way) that I pray will forever stay with me, and be a blessing to you as well:

Make Time Act Right.
Time moves right along. If it's not allocated, it's wasted. Time can be so rude. It's very demanding, especially if we have dreams to fulfill. It does not care one bit about whether we're ready or not. We more than often have to be ahead of it, to be on it. Don't let time leave you behind, the process of redeeming it wastes more of it. Try to be in sync with it. We have to carefully, intentionally aim to stay on top and seeking wisdom at all times, because time truly does not care about our current state of affairs, feelings or emotions.
★ "Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. (Ephesians 5:15-17)

Put Action Over Words.
Actions speak a lot louder than words. Revelation is of little use if we don't "actively" manifest the blessings from the lessons that we learn. Manifestation honors revelation on the highest level. What is being produced with what we know? Is your testimony producing continued triumph in your life? Obedience is better than sacrifice. We should worship G-d with our actions and obedience to His revelation, along with our praise. we lose if we choose not to honor the divine.
★ "In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. (James 2:17)

Love People on Purpose
Often times people can be our biggest headache, but our biggest blessing. People are essential to purpose. Let's face it some people we work with are not the easiest to love, but how we love and interact with them says a lot about how we love ourselves and how we love G-d. The thing about true love is that it's giving, it's patient, and it's committed. If we treat people recklessly, we get back recklessness. They serve as blessings or lessons. It's important to our lives to love and give unselfishly. We all are here to help each other in one way or another.
★ "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs." (1 Corinthians 13:4-5)

Chill Sometimes.
Sometimes Silence Is Ok. Everything does not deserve our immediate response or attention. There is an art in being calm, especially in this age where so many things call for our attention. Although we should love others strongly and give openly. We don't have to give ALL of ourselves, prove anything to anyone, or answer to everything right away. Don't spread yourself to thin... or too much. It's important to learn to focus on the right things, at the right time. Being at peace is key.
★ "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to G-d. And the peace of G-d, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-7)


Have Humility
Don't put yourself up higher than you are. If we don't have some sense of humility we will be very disappointed in life, because only G-d is the author of time and gives us the strength to do everything that we do. It's easy to be up one day and down the next. Be content by trusting G-d's will first always.
★ "I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all." (Ecclesiastes 9:11)

Have Honor
Understand the value of you. You're awesome! G-d created us for greatness. Honor, love, and value the the purpose of G-d in you. Walk like you mean kingdom business.
★ "But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God's OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;" (1 Peter 2:9)

Stop Worrying So Much About Looks
Success is not all about how we look. It's not even about who's looking at us. A lot more of it is about how effective we are. The anointing is not just to show off, just as well don't be too shy too be great because of who's watching. Be about G-d's business, not your own. We don't get blessed with money, finances, resources or nice things just to consume them. We get blessed with them to increase them and be a blessing. Cutting edge is not just the technology and mobility we acquire, cutting edge is an attitude and a mindset. Be cutting edge. Don't be consumed with looks, worry about looking up to G-d for wisdom and direction on how to utilize your blessings, because It's not about what we have, it's about how we use it. When we're living right, being fly will take care of itself...it comes with the territory.
★ "And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? "And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. (Matthew 6:27-29)

Keep Calm In Waiting
People will support you if they want to. We don't have to do the most or go above and beyond to get people to hear what we're trying to say or support what we're trying to do. Be chill and rock with G-d. The right people will support at the right times for the right reasons. Even if it's not for the right reasons, be content to serve G-d with what He Gives. Stop stressing for the blessing. Just work in purpose, be faithful and receive it, It's already inside of us. Don't overwork. Be wise and keep G-d's strategy in mind.
★ "Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism." (Colossians 3:23-25)

Comfort Zones Do Kill
Repetition and habits can work against us. Stop doing the saaaaame things over again and expecting a different result. Develop a strategy. Let God bless you, when you seek wisdom! If we settle for less like we've always done, we'll get what we've always gotten. Be excellent, be extraordinary! Use time wisely. Do what it takes to succeed even though it may be hard. It may seem like a lot of work to bring your dreams to pass, but it's worth it. Don't do it halfheartedly. Whatever you do give it your all, the Lord will give it right back to you, He won't let you down. Step out of your comfort area. The doorway of opportunity is right in front of you. We have to step out and act to access the blessing, manifestation honors our faith. Be great how G-d made you to be on purpose. Don't daydream it, do it. Write the vision and make it plain in order to execute it. Faith without works is dead.
★ “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

Subscribe To G-d's Word For Real
After all is said and done the real true word of God is the only thing that matters or even has relevance. If we're not taking the time out to seek wisdom, we're going about our day and doing life all wrong. Subscribe to the word of God. We subscribe to everything nowadays. Subscriptions, subscription boxes are the new thing. Nothing is new with G-d, His word remains true and stands the tests of time. Subscribe to Gods will. after every lesson, after every blessing, that's the main theme of everything. Seek wisdom!
★ "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." (Proverbs 4:7)

Happy New Year!! What invaluable lessons did you learn last year in 2015?

Handle Lessons With Care

"Don't drop your lessons to the ground, they contain your blessings."

Stay encouraged! Situations don't happen "to" us they happen "For" us, especially when the aim is for advancement, and the motion is for growth, or positive achievement, but if we don't respect the lesson or even realize where we fall. We will have to go through the same thing again...and again. 

Search out and determine the exact place where wisdom was dropped, where obedience and discipline were ignored. It is only then when you can pick them up again. Seek out wisdom in all things, it is the way of excellency. All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. We were made to thrive. If you go through it, make sure you grow through it. Let the lesson be a blessing.

Worship Serves Our Purpose

Worship is the place to get away from it all, everything and everybody. worship is travel, it's going into that secret place and being elevated from your lower self and transcended into your higher being. Worship is where we come in contact with the essence of who we are and the purpose for our lives. seek to give praise and glory to God in gratitude. Be grateful daily.

 If the enemy can take your praise, he can take your Life. We were created to praise God. Don't get distracted. Stay focused on the purpose and mission for which you created. All true worship and devotion belong to God. Worship is Intimacy, revelation of power and knowledge of self are conceived in worship.


Why The Anointing Is Really Everything

There's a part of Proverbs 31 that we miss, that we skip over while looking at the virtuous woman, it is a message. It is the anointing that appoints a king. That governs a king. It is The anointing that constitutes a virtuous woman, not physical strength or beauty. The anointing destroys the yoke of poverty and every other ailment. 

The anointing is our calling that God has given us, that truly blesses others and lifts us from the wretchedness of the flesh. So the base instruction of king Lemuel's mother was to say: honor your anointing. As men and women we each have an anointing, a powerful call from God that makes us stand out. The divine royalty in us-- All of our strength, power, and glory comes from our anointing. We must take it seriously and use it wisely. Seek to know it and study it. We were created for a purpose. 

Recognize your worth kings, queens, royal priests of God. Why? because like attracts like. The nobility of a king draws a wife of virtuous character and just as well... what we present draws what we collect into our lives. As a good wife is a crown to a husband's head, The anointing is the crown of all of our heads. It is in divine purpose and order that we thrive. Honor the anointing of God for your life first over everything.


The Last Crab In The Barrel

The last crab in the barrel who has pulled the others down and has gotten mangled and destroyed in the process, has nothing left to do but destroy itself.

This happens when one is insatiable. If you are insatiable you will soon be consumed.

Be someone who lifts others up, because you know what they do? ... they turn around and help you.

We rise by lifting others up.


Ride The Wave - NiceColumnByShira

Sometimes going with the flow of things can get quite challenging.  As writers, speakers and those who work in the ministry for the Lord – we began to set goals for ourselves, ponder on our future and re-examine our lives and truth be told, we sometimes get stuck.

 What should I write about next?  Which direction is my career heading?  How can I reach those who are lost, suffering in silence or needs to hear the “Message of Salvation and Grace,” to bring about deliverance and restoration for their lives?

 All things considered, as we trust in God, Walk in Faith and continue desiring God’s purpose and will for our lives, we all need inspiration, encouragement and motivation to finish the course that’s set before us.

 I have found much Wisdom and Direction from the Word of God during my time of uncertainty, courageously looking for guidance, for which steps to take next.  One thing that I’m reassured of, “there’s nothing new under the sun” and “there is a season for all things”.  

 For instance, Writers Read, Readers Write!  When I’m struck or have writer’s block, I will pick up a novel, even if it’s not always my favorite, “Topic of Discussion,” and place myself inside the story as one of the characters of the read. Gleaning on the inspiration of the author, with all sincerity and much focus.  Attempting to understand the message and point that the writer is conveying.  This gives me a broader perspective for my own writing technique.

 Riding the wave, instead of re-inventing the wheel, often gives me the inspiration, encouragement and motivation needed to pick up that pen and begin writing again!

 As we face those times of uncertainty, writers block or just those thoughts of, “I just don’t know, I’m stuck.”  Check out the boldness, creativity and inspiration that others have written or have spoken about. It very well could spark a new horizon in the way you perceive your situation!

 Blessings to all and Always Stay Encouraged!
