Focus On The Good

With so much negativity all around me, it is refreshing to see people moving forward and planning for the future.

Focusing on the good in difficult times is challenging; there is no doubt about that. But when you look at the alternative, concentrating on the bad, then it is a task worth investing your time.

When you focus on the negative, you will notice that the problem you have will grow bigger and bigger, you will begin to see things that you didn’t think of at first.

Worrying and feeling anxious very rarely, if ever, resolves a situation. However, what does help is sitting down and asking yourself what you can do to make things better and whatever you come up with, getting to work on it without delay.

When you focus on solutions, you will find them.

Enjoy your weekend.

How to Fill Up on Faith When You Are Full of Fear

I can only speak for myself, but the last year has been one of the most challenging years in my life. Usually, a person of great faith, that faith has been shaken.

Almost every conversation I have with people nowadays is rooted in fear. People are worried about the future, uncertain of what the future holds. And rightfully so, there are a lot of unknowns moving forward.

2020/21 has been a very confusing time, and it’s quite natural to be fearful, so how can you increase your faith when you are full of fear?

Well, the first step is to realise that FEAR is the absence of FAITH. Meaning that if you are feeling fearful, you are purposely or unintentionally focusing on more fearful thoughts.

So how can you reverse this?

Take it upon yourself to focus more on faith.

This is not easy, but what has helped me immensely is to connect with nature as often as I can. Although, of course, sometimes the negative thoughts are so strong that you can not shake them off.

When I find that negative thoughts have a firm hold of me, I have learned from experience that you must change up your routine.

So instead of the familiar, go to a new location, walk through a forest or beside the ocean. When surrounded by new places, our minds are forced to take in further information; when we walk on uneven surfaces or hear new sounds, our minds have no choice but to take our awareness into the present moment; otherwise, we may bump into something or trip or fall.

As powerful as the mind is, it can only think of one thought at a time, so if it is torturing you with the same thought over and over, it is time that you change your surroundings. You will not believe the difference that it makes.

What most people do, however, is they keep the same routine, letting the same thoughts replay day after day, not knowing that there is a better way.

Most of us have plenty to worry about, but the more we dwell on our worries, the bigger they grow.

Increasing your faith is about changing your focus; it’s about connecting more with nature and connecting more with God. You can make the shift; you get to choose how you spend your time; you can spend time doing things that build you up or things that tear you down.

Choose today to get close to God and spend time surrounded by his beautiful creation. Spend time with the people that build you up and want the best for you. Do the things that bring you joy and happiness and give you the most pleasure.

Getting through this pandemic is difficult; your mind will default to the negative, and the reason for this is that there is negativity all around us. Therefore, we must take it upon ourselves to feed our minds with information to build us up and help us grow.

The most crucial time to do this is first thing in the morning. It is reported that the first 30-60 minutes set the tone for the day. So play, read, or listen to something that will uplift your spirit and make you feel good.

Change up your routine. If your default is checking emails and notifications, put that off until after breakfast; if it is to tune into the morning news, put on some music instead.

It sounds almost too simple to be effective, but you will not believe the difference that it makes.

You give yourself the chance to experience life without being bombarded with marketing and negative news.

Everyone needs a ray of light in their lives, be a ray of sunshine for someone else this weekend.

Thanks for reading.

God bless you all.

Stuck in overthinking?

When you start to overthink a past hurt or mistake them, thoughts will soon fill your mind. What happened may have happened years ago, but within minutes you can be feeling the same feelings as if it only happened yesterday.

Regret, pain, and bitterness can rob you of your joy.

And once negativity gets a hold of you, it can be tough to shake it off.

If you are feeling overwhelmed at this time, it can seem like there is no hope, that there is no way that things can get better. Emotions like fear, worry and doubt can blind you from opportunities that are right in front of your eyes.

But there is a solution…

You must actively fill your mind with faith.

Thinking thoughts of faith may seem simple, but it’s not. And the reason, the last thing you want to do when you are feeling down is to read something that will lift you up. Reading words of faith when you are in the grips of fear will initially make you feel uncomfortable, but when you do, something remarkable happens.

Your faith is released.

Knowing will soon replace doubt; peace will soon replace worry.

When life is not going to plan, the negative thoughts will come, telling you that you’re not good enough, smart enough, talented enough, but you must develop ways to remove those limiting thoughts and replace them with ideas that will give you strength to propel you forward.

Nothing is impossible to the person who challenges their fears and chooses to release their faith.

Free eBook — How to Release Your Faith?

There is a lot of fear and uncertainty in the world at the moment, and it can be overwhelming.

It’s hard to see how things can get better.

Social media is an excellent way of connecting with people, but in the last 12 months, it has shown its dark side.

So many stories have surfaced, most of which have little or no facts attached to them, but they spread like wildfire, injecting even more, fear and uncertainty into people’s hearts and minds.

When surrounded by fear, it can be hard not to be affected by it. Fearful thoughts can quickly dominate your thought life, resulting in you sharing those thoughts with the people you meet.

When you go over, and over the same ideas, the problem is that it makes them more and more real in your mind.

Now more than ever, it’s essential to release your faith and let thoughts of faith, hope and expectancy fill your mind. And you must do this purposely. Otherwise, negative thoughts will keep you discouraged. Keep you locked in worry, doubt and fear.

When you let negative recordings play, they can affect your mood and your overall well-being. But when you release your faith, all your negative feelings will fade away.

And how do you do this? Purposely you must feed your mind with information that will fill you with hope, faith and gratitude.

The right words and thoughts will release the faith that lies within. You will begin to think differently, act differently, and feel differently.
.
When God created us, He gave us everything we needed to fulfil our destiny. Now quit telling yourself that you are limited or haven’t got what it takes. Or that you will never achieve your destiny.

Choose instead to fill your mind with everything that is good so that your faith can be released.

In my new book, I would like to take you on a journey to help you overcome your fears by giving you the confidence and assurance that everything will work out as God has planned.

When life is not going our way, it’s easy to be discouraged and down on ourselves. We can allow negative defeated thoughts to replay on our mind. But when you learn to remove those limited thoughts, your life can change in amazing ways.

Nothing is impossible to the person who chooses to let go of fear and release their faith.

For Many Happiness Is a Mystery, But Not For Me

For many happiness is a mystery, but not for me.

Giving to others is where happiness originates. And giving does not mean money, it means time, energy, a listening ear.

It is my belief that each and every one of us, religious or not has a ministry to live out. Each of us has a mission that we must fulfil.

Ministry is best known for the spreading of faith, but for me ministry goes much deeper than that. Any way that you help others live better lives could be called a ministry.

You will find that if you are not working a job where you directly change peoples lives for the better, you will be unhappy and unfulfilled. You will not enjoy going to work and will find yourself living for the weekend.

I’m sure you know people like this?

This year has been tough, and it’s so easy to get lost within our problems, trying to make sense of it all. The problem is everyone is just as fearful and afraid so any search for answers will only leave you worse off.

If you are feeling depressed or unhappy at this time, the best thing that you can do is to help others. You will find that your world will seem so much brighter if you offer others a helping hand.

Whether that be in the form of visiting an elderly neighbour or letting a relation on the other side of the world know that you care. Even a text message to someone can make their day.

It’s important to remember that everyone is going through the same as you. Each with their own fears. So let now be a time when we join together and help each other out in any way that we can.

Where we show our communities that even though there is a lot of fear and hostility in the world. There is still an ocean of love.

Did we all forget…

Waking up this morning, I heard the sound of the rain on my window, and the thought came to me, did we all forget.

The simple things in life, what matters?

When did we all get so wrapped up in a system that made us desire material things? Thinking that we were not good enough unless we wore certain clothes or worked at certain jobs.

When did that happen?

Yes, what is happening at this time is scary, there is so much uncertainty, America, once the greatest country on earth seems to be coming apart at the seams.

In my lifetime, I have never seen so much fear.

But…

In all that darkness, I see hope; people are finally waking up to the fantasy life that has been feed to them their whole lives. People are finally beginning to realise that only the essentials of life matter.

What’s the use of a fancy house, flashy car, 60inch TV if you haven’t got your health. What use are material possessions if you haven’t got a spiritual connection to God to give you the faith that all will be ok.

Let’s start remembering and being thankful for all that we do have.

Start each day with gratitude.

Gratitude is the candlelight that will guide you back into the light.

Are You Addicted To Fear?

In my opinion, fear is a drug.

A drug that once you get a taste, you want more.

For example, you hear a story that it’s not going to rain for a few months, and there will be water shortages.

That person has dealt you some fear.

If you have strong faith, you will say to yourself, that’s not going to happen, “I have faith all will be ok.” And it is.

But if your faith is weak, however, even though you have only read one story, the fear that it has created in you makes you look for another story. Next thing you know you’re searching on YouTube for ways to prepare for such an event….

And guess what?

You find 100s of videos, each recommending different ways to prepare. “Why is the mainstream media not talking about this?” You ask yourself.

Within a few weeks, you’re an expert on the subject. You have even told friends and family, who thought you were crazy in the beginning, but when it hasn’t rained for a couple of weeks, they get a little worried.

Now they too do some research and see there are hundreds of videos all over the internet talking about the same topic.

Molehill to Mountain

This is a story I just made up, but I’m sure you get the idea. One little bit of fear turned into a lot of fear, but not only that, you started to deal that fear to others.

And they, in turn, went on to deal that fear to more people.

With current events, there are 1000s of different stories like this all over the internet. People in their fearful states have created stories of what THEY think is happening. Whether they are right or wrong is not the point, the point is they are dealing fear.

And when you are getting fear from the mainstream news, fear from your friends and family, fear from social media. It will wear you down over time.

I have no way of knowing what position you are in at this time, but I know that you must keep focusing on the positives in your life. Having the faith that everything will work out for the best. A quote that sums up what I’m trying to say here is from Helen Keller, who said, “I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet”.

We have to be thankful for what we have. We have to be faithful, stay informed yes, but don’t get caught up in what some random person or persons is saying on the internet.

The truth is, no one knows what the future holds, except God.

What this crisis has highlighted for me, is just how much we have taken for granted, for far too long. Materialism had all but taken over.

Everyone wanted the latest fashion, cars, smartphones without questioning what maintaining that lifestyle is doing to the planet.

Yes, it is sad what has happened, but is it not sadder that it took an event like this to make people connect with what really matters in life — food family and shelter?
