God’s gift for leaders. Boss in the middle, day 10 prayer challenge.

IMG_0459This is going to be short and sweet.  I prayed this morning, back in my normal spot at home.  It was a very nourishing session of prayer and meditation.  God not only spoke to me, but reminded me about a gift He gave me.

Being powerful and courageous looks different sometimes. Boss in the middle. Day 5 prayer challenge.

IMG_0440This was the thought God gave me this morning, in the quiet of my closet.  Being powerful and courageous looks different sometimes.  Instead of pushing through to your goals and accomplishing the dreams you have set for your life, no matter what, it could mean letting go and letting God do whatever.  In this case, I have a specific issue.

Prayer Challenge…

IMG_0422You can do it!  You’ve got to believe in yourself, before anyone else does.  Stay in the game and hunt down your fears, until they can no longer exist in the same space as your dreams.  If you believe in God and lean on him, you’ll have access to true power.  He is the one who will remove stumbling blocks and increase your level of life.  All you need to do is submit to His will.  It’s funny how we all learn this as young Christians, but for some reason, we decided to take our will back.  Then we get mad that we’re not where we want to be or feel like we’re behind in our mission.

We set ourselves up for failure by not following his simple rules for an abundant life.  If you’re off track, start off by praying to God for 10 minutes every morning, before you do anything else.  See how your week goes and then increase to 15 minutes the next week.

Come back here in two weeks and tell me what happened.  I’ll do it to and report the results on my blog.  Let’s call this a “prayer challenge”.

I’m excited!  I’ll let you know how it goes.

You can’t win by accident.

IMG_0415Being a winner is such an “on purpose” thing.  It’s a habit and a mindset.   Winning takes practice, persistence, faith and focus.  It’s not going to happen by accident. There are many people out here working very hard to ensure you don’t have accidental success.

That’s why things worth having are hard to attain.  You don’t accidentally come in first place.  People don’t accidentally complete the project.  Teams don’t accidentally win championships.  These things take concentrated effort and sacrifice.

As a boss in the middle, you have to remember that no one is going to give you anything.  You need to go hard.  You need to go wisely.

You can only trust God 100%, so keep Him first!

The spiritual war continues… (Posting an update to this from March 2017)

IMG_0365I am still in the middle of a spiritual war. It can be very painful. I feel my soul being torn part. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 gave me peace and encouragement tonight. The verses enlightened me to the fact that, while in the midst of this struggle, I can change my thought pattern.

I am the “boss in the middle” of a spiritual war.

IMG_0365I am in the middle of a spiritual war.  It is very painful.  I can feel my soul being tugged back and forth between good and evil.  1 Corinthians 16:13-14 gave me peace and encouragement tonight.  The verses enlightened me to the fact that, while in the midst of this struggle, there is a way to be.  The first step is to recognize that I am at war for my soul.

God will help you move mountains, but you need to bring a shovel.

img_0288God loves you and is there to help.  This does not only apply to when you have a big goal to reach, this also applies when you are resisting temptations.  This happened to me yesterday.  I was tempted to do something wrong, I prayed and asked God to lift it from me.  But then, the temptation only became stronger.

Make your promises count.

img_0354Came across this verse as I was reading tonight.  I wanted to write an article that was short and spiritual.  Something like this:

It is a very rare thing for me to make promises.  I simply don’t want to break them.  I don’t want my words to be taken lightly.  I say something and I’m sincere about it.  As a boss in the middle, we should all follow this model.

That, however, is an irresponsible and untrue representation of the truth.  Let me explain who I really am and what I learned tonight.

Things I need to tell myself.

img_0352There are things I’ve learned about myself which can only be described as character defects.  Flaws that at times, can make my life more painful than necessary.  As a result, I have made up a lot of sayings, quips, analogies and acronyms to remember who I am and my purpose.  I’ll share some of these things with you.
