Be the Awesome Person you were Created to Be


Today I want to remind you to be awesome!  Let go of your past. Everyone makes mistakes, or as the Bible says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Good news is, you don’t have to stay down. Repent, ask God to forgive you and He will. Then forgive yourself and move forward. Do not allow your sin to hold you captive. One of the best examples of this can be seen through David, who we’ve come to know as a man after God’s own heart. David was nowhere near perfect. He made many mistakes in his life, he was a murderer, he was adulterer just to name a few but no matter what he did he always went back to God. Let David be an example to us all of what it means to be someone after God’s own heart.

What does it mean to be someone after God’s own heart? It means you have a relationship with God. When you have a relationship with someone, you spend time with them. You talk to them. You listen to them. You trust them. You do right by them. This is the type of heart we should have for our Heavenly Father. In addition to all of the above, “God is spirit, so we must worship Him in spirit and truth”(John 4:24 KJV). You cannot worship God fully in spirit and in truth if you are still holding on to past mistakes. Not only can you not worship freely, you cannot live freely. This is called bondage and satan wants to keep you in bondage. He wants your mind to be held captive to your faults. He wants to keep you in a dark place in life, because he knows that when you see the light you will be able to walk in the full purpose and destiny in which God has for your life. When you walk in the light you are then able to be the man or woman who God created you to be.

Know your enemy. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy and he is going to do that be any means necessary. Do not allow him to beat you up with condemnation. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. You might feel convicted, which you should because that just means the Holy Spirit is living inside of you. But you should never feel condemned. Stand up and take your rightful place in the Kingdom of God. Let go of those mistakes, free yourself from bondage and be the awesome person that you were created to be!


Thought Check:

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 KJV

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24 KJV

Leave The Past Right Where It Is

Leave the Past Right Where It Is

Social status and titles mean very little to me because difficulties in life show no mercy based on who you are or who you know.  No matter how you look at it, life is not easy.  Nor, do I think it was ever intended to be.  I’ve learned and am still learning that there will be some things in my life that don’t go the way I want, but I can’t just throw in the towel.  I have to make a decision to focus on the positive and live a life of joy and happiness in spite of my past or what I may be experiencing in my present.

Living thousands of miles away from my closest friends and family, I had been really homesick lately.  That was until my mom and aunt came to visit.  I was so happy because I knew that by spending time with them, I would get the encouragement I needed to help get me through the next months before we leave Europe.  Their visit went better than I could have ever imagined, however when they left I felt some kind of way.  I did not realize that I would miss them so much and instead of getting the push I needed, the enemy tried to attack my mind and almost tried to get me to revert back to how I felt when I first got here.  I had to call upon the strength of God deep down inside of me to get me back on track, forget all about my past feelings and focus on my present.  I made the decision to focus on those choices that I can affect and continue to make my life worth living.  While I still miss my family, I make the choice right now to live my life to fullest each and everyday and not allow this situation to get me off focus and regress back to my past behavior.  I know that I have purpose where I am and in spite of how I feel, I must finish the race that has been set before me.

This is just one example I am sharing.  I’m sure you could think of several things you have experienced that maybe did not go the way you want it to go or maybe caused you hurt and pain.  I want to encourage you today.  Whatever it is you are feeling, I am here to say that you can triumph over the challenges and difficulties of life.  It’s all about your outlook, strength of character and determination.  You simply have to choose.  Call upon your faith and trust in God to help you keep walking toward a better future.  Leave your past behind you.  For me, this even includes past behaviors.  If you spend so much time focusing on moments, situations or circumstances from the past, you just might miss the awesome things that God is doing right in front of you or any special moments that are to come.  Learn from it, grow from it but leave your past right where it is. Do not try to take it into your present or the future that God has in store for you.  #iDeclare #LeaveThePastRightWhereItIs



Heavenly Father, please help me to leave my past behind me.  Help me to not allow the situations or circumstances of my present to cause me to revert back to things of the past.  Help me to stay focused and determined to live a meaningful life.  I decree and declare that I will choose to focus on the choices I can affect and not miss out on what’s right ahead of me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
