Statement jewelry never goes out of style and has continued to enhance clothing for ages. Being fashionable is not just only putting an ensemble together, but also about accessorizing right. Statement pieces are supposed to make a statement! Choose pieces that help to illuminate your face and give you a more refined look.
When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you.
It’s not pride – it’s self-respect.
Some days, it is a lot harder to be patient. When we’re bringing our concerns to the Lord again and again, we grow tired of waiting. It soon begins to feel like our prayers are falling on deaf ears. Often our desire is to take control and just “do the best we can;” it is our fleshly reaction to the silence. We know GALATIANS 5 lists patience as a fruit of the Holy Spirit so we confess our desire to rule our own lives. We ask the Spirit to fill us, empowering and directing us even as we continue to wait on the Lord.
Are you going through a dark, difficult moment in your life? Perhaps the storm just rages on with no let-up and you are trembling in fear. You feel that any time now, you may just cave in and go under because you cannot beat this storm. Be comforted that Jesus sees what you are going through and He always comes to where you are in your darkest hour. He did that for His disciples one stormy night on the Sea of Galilee. Jesus came, walking on the stormy waters, walking on top of the problem that was threatening to overwhelm them. He is indeed the King and Lord over the storms!
Some one once said, “stopping every now and then to smell the roses is perfectly fine. But don’t get stuck in there.” It is a great thing to enjoy and celebrate your success and most importantly your hard work achievements. Don’t fall in the trap of minimizing your accomplishment. But after your celebration you need to start working towards your next achievement. You need to keep on pressing on. God has more for you than your yesterday’s achievement.
“If you have a goal in life that takes a lot of energy, that requires a lot of work, that incurs a great deal of interest and that is a challenge to you, you will always look forward to waking up to see what the new day brings.”
Shame as the Modern dictionary defines is, “a painful feeling arising from the consciousness of something dishonorable, improper, etc., done by oneself or another.” You may be hurt somewhere in the past and you may still feel the pain and the shame. You are a victim. You suffered. But it’s unfair to you to keep on carrying the shame and the pain any more. You need to stop the pain so that you can move on your life. The healing process must starts from you. You cannot change the past, but you can change your present and future. You need to learn how to forgive yourself and those who hurt you. To forgive is to let go of pain, resentment and regret from our past experience. “When you forgive you set a prisoner free. And then you discover that the prisoner was you.”
