You Can Transform Your Life: The Power Of Prayer — Free on Kindle

In this fast-paced world, it’s hard to find the time to get anything done. With commitments and notifications every 5 minutes it’s difficult to get a quiet moment.

We can have all these goals and dreams, but they never seem to materialise.

We feel our best when calm, relaxed and full of faith, but attaining that state can be difficult.

Worry and doubt have a way of creeping up on us. Before you know it, you don’t have the same passion and energy that you used to.

You are a truly gifted person with unlimited potential, but if you’re easily distracted and let the problems of life knock you back, you won’t get very far.

Learn a simple method of praying that will focus your mind throughout the day. Keeping your attention on what you want and off what you don’t.

Can The Snooze Button Determine Your Destiny?

“Snooze, just another 10 minutes. That can’t hurt.”

Most people’s first thought of the day, and if you think these thoughts or similar thoughts, then you are probably rushing to work in the morning, depending on that dose of caffeine to get you through.

With myself, often it’s thoughts of worry, something that I know I must do but keep putting off. What I have learnt is, the sooner I address the problem, the happier I am.

Them first few thoughts let you know what is working or not working in your life.

If you are dreading going to work maybe its time that you did something else, of course, that is easier said than done. With bills to pay and a certain lifestyle to maintain it can be challenging to change your job. It’s the fear of the unknown.

 

creative

What I suggest is having a creative outlet.

Even a small service that you can provide. Maybe your an excellent painter and decorator, or have a keen eye for interior design. Even a listening ear or caring nature will take you far. We can easily overlook our true gifts and abilities, but entire businesses are built upon them.

Your first few thoughts each morning determines the rest of the day, so it’s essential that you and I make a conscious effort towards thoughts of faith, gratitude and love.

No more negotiating with the alarm clock. Hitting the snooze button once usually leads to hitting it again and again. Then traffic. Then stress. Then late, again.

Starting the morning in this way can create thoughts of struggle and even the feeling that your life will never change. So, in the morning when you feel that thought coming on, “SNOOZE” Replace it with, “Thank you for another day. Thank you that I have a job; thank you that I live in a country that I can make my dreams come true.”

Instead of ‘snooze’ get up and take the time to get a healthy breakfast and enjoy your morning coffee in the fresh air.

Gratitude is the foundation of happiness.

Start the day calm, relaxed, and full of faith and see the difference that it makes. Make the choice that each day is going to be better than the last.

Change those first thoughts and change everything!

The Power Of February

ONE-beautiful-sunrise

Many people think that when January is gone, there goes the new year resolution for another year… but this is not the case.

Studies have shown that decisions made in February are the ones that last for the rest of the year.

Maybe its the long stretch in the evenings or the brighter mornings.

We all have unlimited potential within, but if you don’t have goal-directed people around you, you will not get very far.

People that encourage you, people that want to listen, people that want to hear your opinion.

Make 2019 the year that counts, the year that you can look back on and say, that was the year that changed everything.

Work on your faith daily, even if its only a short prayer. Take regular walks in nature and feel the wind in your hair. Connecting with nature can help in so many ways, relieves anxiety, depression and helps your fitness too.

One of my favourite quotes is, “It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”

Make some decisions of faith this week, park the car 10 minutes away from the office or take a walk to the corner shop.

Stick a sticky note on your laptop or back of door, somewhere you will see it often— of the person you want to be.

Say a short prayer, “thank you Lord for all the small things that I take for granted.” Often throughout the day.

Fulfilling your divine destiny is a marathon, not a race. It’s many small steps that over time will get you to your destination.

I believe in you. Take a step of faith today.

Thanks for reading. Enjoy your week.

Live a Life Without Fear – Take a Step of Faith Today

fear 2

Fear can take many forms. Fear to you could be a natural disaster or an economic collapse, something significant that will affect your life and those around you.

But fear to some can be as severe as unable to be alone or afraid of people; unable to fit in with others.

It’s very easy to imagine how fear can mould and shape lives.

What most people do to overcome their fears is to avoid the situation that causes the fear. This method can be effective but doesn’t solve the problem. In effect, all it does is make your world smaller.

When fear is limiting your life, you must face it.

At first, this can seem daunting, maybe even causing anxiety, but this is where faith comes in.

Personal Fears

When I was younger, I was bullied at my part-time job. Then, one day on the way to work I got a mild panic attack. The next weekend I phoned in sick and told my doctor what was going on, and she wrote work-related stress on the sick note, telling me it was something I had to face. I agreed.

However, the thought that I had to face management to discuss the matter just escalated my anxiety, so I didn’t go back.

I didn’t go near the area of town where I worked as I feared meeting the people that I worked with, I didn’t want to explain to them why I left.; I felt that I was somehow responsible for the abuse. Bullying affects everyone differently.

Many other personal problems hit me around the same time, so I decided to go to see a counsellor.

As we got into conversation, he spoke about reading the Bible 2-3 times a year; he talked about it with so much passion that I started to read it myself. And the more I read, the more my faith grew within. Knowing that God is with us at all times helped me to surrender to His will.

I realised that I had let fear escalate the problem. By avoiding the part of town I used to work I was giving fear control of my life.

When I started to return to the places I used to go many of the people that I worked with didn’t even recognise me, others just said hi. Fear had built up a story that was not close to reality.

Fear makes problems more significant than they are.

Love vibration

Faith and fear are simply vibrations. One has positive energy the other negative.

When a lot of negative things happen, it is easy to get into a negative vibration, and it may seem like you will never get out, but when you work on your faith daily, it will give you the ability to change a negative vibration to a positive one.

Faith is simple, yet we like to make it complicated.

Now I’m not saying that it is simple to make prayer and devotion a part of your day, but if you can make it a habit, then you will see massive results.

Ask God to give you the desire and discipline to spend time with Him each day.

A simple practice that has worked well for me during busy times is to take 30-60seconds during the day. Close your eyes for 30-60seconds now. Listen to the world around you and feel the presence of God.

This practice sounds almost too simple to have an impact, but do it often, and within a short time you will see and feel the difference in your life.

I wish you a stress-free week. Take a step of faith today.
