What if you only had one month to live? How would you spend your time? How would you talk to people? What would your day consist of? How would you love others?

 

Many of us walk around sometime believing we are superman and that we will live forever but the reality is we will die. So why do we chase after the things of this world that will die with us? Some may be our outer possessions such as materialistic items, but most of the time it’s our inner comfort level that society calls security. Security obtained by the world, stays in the world. Meaning it has very temporary value. When chasing the pleasures of the world, or the securities of the world, it keeps you from attaining pass this world. For ALL that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. (1 John2:16). The idea of obtaining true security in the world is an imaginary reality. The injustices of this world proves the obscurity of placing our trust in what the world offers. The only security you can have, is in God.

 

If you only had one month to live there would be an authenticity that the world would see, with your actions having more intention and purpose. You would no longer be blinded by the distractions around you because suddenly they wouldn’t matter.

 

The greatest fear in life should not be failure but doing something that doesn’t matter. -Francis Chan
This quote really opened my eyes to life. To many times I find myself focused on what doesn’t matter. So many times we can focus on the cycle of life but never the end of the cycle. Creating a legacy is not just about what you do for yourself, but for the future generations after you. What impact are you leaving? Harold Kushner said “I am convinced that it is not the fear of death, or our lives ending, that haunts our sleep so much, it’s that as far as the world is concerned, we might as well never have lived.” It’s about the impact that you do. Impacting lives that changes the lifestyle of many. One thing I know is God is my lifestyle and He died for me to be comfortable in eternity. He is what matters, and offers the security that no one can take away. Devote every MINUTE in changing someone’s life. Keep in mind if you have one month to live, what would be your attitude.

 

What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14


 

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

 

In today’s society we have a false sense of reality, which can make us not identify what true beauty is. When you look up the category “beauty” you will find makeup and things alike that will give you the false imagery that the world seeks. However God counts you beautiful in a different way. For the Lord sees not man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7) My hope is that by reading this article you will understand the true meaning of beauty and that you will be able to see yourself for who you really are.

 

The definition of beautiful is pleasing the senses or mind aesthetically, or of a very high standard, excellent. So the first point is:

 

  1.   1. Beauty is based on what pleases the mind. Not the eyes.

 

Scientifically your mind releases the hormones to tell you what you enjoy and what you don’t enjoy. Your eyes can do the same thing however it can also be deceiving, like make up. When something pleases your mind it creates character for the opposite person. Your mind has the power to reinforce you to do something again, as well as change the view of character towards the opposite person. The reinforcement to do something for yourself, and the trust that has been gained for another person all comes from pleasing your mind aesthetically. When you view beauty from the eyes, it may please the mind temporarily but has the possibility of a disappointment if you found out it was artificial.

 

  1.    2. Beauty has a standard of high quality, and excellence. Not typical, normal, or mediocre.

 

You were made with excellence and with a standard of high quality, and I expect you to be treated and to act as such. Unfortunately we live in an envious world. We want what other people have rather than focusing on the gifts we have for ourselves. There are 2 problems with this: No one has their standard of high quality because they are too busy trying to get someone else’s standard and/or everyone’s beauty has been devalued because what the world sees as beauty is really typical, normal, or mediocre. There is no sense of identity, or uniqueness among an individual because everybody wants to be like everybody else. Where is the beauty in that? How can a standard be measure against something else if they all look the same?

 

My prayer for you is to be different, BE YOU! Be the very person that God intended you to be before you were even born. You are of His workmanship, which means the degree of skills that He has placed inside you is something that you can’t imagine. God created you to do good things, extraordinary things, things that you can only do by remaining in Him. Have you ever noticed the attraction when someone is walking in their calling? This can be in profession or just in characteristics. Either way it’s you walking in the being that God has called you to walk in. Men are attracted to confident women who have their own identity in Christ that can compliment or enhance a man’s walk with Christ. Women are attracted to the confidence and/or faith a man carries from Christ, because they now can BOTH operate in God’s protection in any circumstance.

 

Be you to the full is a message that lets you know, that you as an individual are beautiful not because the world says so, but because of the individualism that God has placed inside you. My hope is that you no longer look at yourself in the lens of the world, but that that you transform your mind to not the things of this world. If you don’t know who you are yet, and the beauty you identify with is what the eyes can see, read more about Jesus. God created us in His image (Genesis 1:27), therefore Jesus character, view, power is a great start to understand the high quality that we have been made in. God wants to use your personality to accomplish His good will, I hope that you allow Him to use you fully. For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are – Romans 8:19.

The Life of the White Flag 

 

What is the white flag life? It’s surrendering. Surrendering is a never ending story. I feel like in my life right now I have no choice but to surrender. I ask myself, “Why does it take me to have no other choice to surrender, in order for me to surrender?” Why is surrendering looked at as bad? Surrendering takes you out of the driver seat, and into but the back seat. Most people think they would be in the passenger seat, but I say the back seat because in some cases you have even less control then when in the passenger seat. The passenger can see more of oncoming traffic and even the driver’s blind spot. To be in full surrender you must be okay with  not seeing the outcome of the situation.

 

As humans this concept drives us crazy!! But why does it drive us crazy? Well the answer is we lie in the realm of unbelief! We don’tbelieve the outcome will be okay…Why do we not believe? We don’t believe because it is not in our hands.

 

The main ingredient in surrendering is humility. You can’t surrender without living in the realm of humility. Humility is living your life in the idea of complete understanding, and putting someone else’s wants before your own. In the character of humility, we have an understanding that we are here to learn. If we understand this concept the idea of surrendering becomes much easier. You start to look at your life as a learning process rather than a controlled crisis. Think about it, if your life was completely controlled by you, how would you ever learn, how would you gain new information? You wouldn’t,because everything you would do would go based on your own knowledge (The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice – Proverbs 12:15). We have to embrace surrendering on a daily bases in order to grow.

 

In order to understand the process we also have to identify with what’s coming from the enemy. If the opposite of surrendering is control then what is the main ingredient of control?  I believe it is our pride. Pride creates this unreal idea that we have to be in control. Where does this unreal idea come from? The world! We create all these standards that create unreal status quo for humanity. For example, your status in living, if you don’t make a certain amount of money by a certain age, and then according to the world you are a failure. Or how about for women, if you’re not married at a certain age, you consider yourself not good enough. These are all made up ideas in our mind that stop us from embracing the full surrendering God is looking for. Pride creates a wall between you and God. Ask yourself what are you not willing to surrender to today? Are you willing to surrender to Gods process to learn more about yourself and God? Or are you submitting to your own process running into the same wall every time.

 

I’m writing this not to say I know it all or have all the right answers, but I have ran into that wall many times and I’m sure I will many more times, but I do except the challenge God gave us to surrender. I have learned that I am addicted to his challenges not because I like hard ship, but because I’m addicted to seeing God in my life. I desire to grow therefore I desire his discipline. I challenge you to have that same heart and see how God works in your life.


As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life


Life With Out Fear

I believe fear can be looked at in one or two ways. We can look at it from either a negative or positive outlook. Imagine a world that had no fear, I think life would be so boring! If nothing can fear you then where would the excitement be in the accomplishment of enduring through it? More importantly if fear didn’t exist how would we strengthen our faith? Faith would be dead. The opposite of faith is fear. If we never had the feeling of fear then there would be no need for faith. All faith would be faith in our self-knowing, depending on ourselves rather than God. Faith is believing in what is not seen, therefore you have a choice in what you choose to believe; something that you see which can sometimes cause fear, or trust what you believe regardless of what you see and move towards it.

I think we should look at fear as a positive challenge. Overcoming fear with faith molds our character, makes you into the better person you are and most of all you GROW. I mean look at the many people that allowed fear to control them. If you see them now and five years later see them again in the same situation, guarantee they are the same person in prison by fear. It’s because they look at fear as a negative element in their life and for some reason they can’t get over it.

Fear can no longer be real once you experience it. Think of the last time you were fearful and you experience it, which fear no longer controlled you because the imagination of that real no longer existed. Sometimes we need to create a new experience of our perception of an event and overcoming your fear allows you to do that. I remember when I was 12 I feared this huge slide at this water park, all my cousins laughed at me because I was too scared to go on it until one year I told myself I’m going! I went and I couldn’t even push myself to go lol I had the instructor push me lol ( I was A Chicken) but maaaan did I love that ride! It ended up being my favorite ride to go on. I was going backwards and all this stuff, fear left me and I was no longer controlled by it.

What fears do you have that may be controlling you to let God work in your life. Maybe you have been praying for a certain blessing and God is asking you to go half way, display your faith that overcomes fears and watch how God moves in your life! Life is a journey experienced through the good the bad and the ugly so you can live, love and conquer.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
James 1:2-4


Do you know what a mirror neurons is? A mirror neuron is a neuron that fires both when an animal acts and when the animal observes the same action performed by another.Thus, the neuron “mirrors” the behavior of the other, as though the observer were itself acting. Such neurons have been directly observed in primate species.[4] Birds have been shown to have imitative resonance behaviors and neurological evidence suggests the presence of some form of mirroring system.[4][5] In humans, brain activity consistent with that of mirror neurons has been found in the premotor cortex, the supplementary motor area, the primary somatosensory cortex and the inferior parietal cortex.

That being said we are programmed to become what we see. Do you ever ask yourself how do babies walk and start to talk? No one is really able to speak to them to teach them how to walk and talk. These neurons are firing off forcing the baby to act out what she or he sees. As adult we still has these neurons in our brain therefore we have to be careful not only to make sure what we watch helps us but also make sure how we act will influence others in a positive way. As much as you want to say that what you watch and listen to don’t effect you…Sorry but it does its a scientific fact if you watch it enough you will become it. Hints the reason business owners say have a mentor and surround yourself with people that are successful because its not only science its God. God created us this way because he wants us unified. We were originally made to imitate him but thanks to EVE lol we received free will, still made to imitate but imitating the wrong people.

The industry is no joke because you’re surrounded by the wrong people and before you know it all your morals are thrown out the window and you look just like them. So if you are in the industry please keep yourself around God fearing people that you can imitate if not I dont care how strong you think you are eventually you will become them. And Lastly make sure you feed our kids positive thing to imitate Keep them pure. The bible says we should all be like children, because God creates all of us pure but the world programs us to be the exact opposite. I believe we can save Miley and many others if we save the industry.


Take the bible out of sex before marriage for one second, think about all the problems you run into when involving sex. Sex creates an unclear focus, you no longer focus on yourself but you focus on the other person way too much. You start to care way to much about what the person thinks about you not only physically, but mentally. You create a very vulnerable relationship making it almost impossible to really get to know you on a deeper level making the relationship last way too long before a commitment is even made. ( marriage) Sex makes things confusing if you don’t know if you are really in love with that person, It’s a physical ability to make you think you are in love with that person for a couple days Lol So many of us confuses the idea of love with lust. What is lust? Have a strong sexual desire for that person but not a strong long term commitment desire.

Sex can be used as a magic poison lol A craft to keep you locked in with no long term commitment. Maybe that’s what you want a relationship with no strings attachment I got news for you there’s always strings attached no matter how you want to look at it. Man or female once the relationship is over you always walk away feeling like a piece of you is missing. Either way you look at it, you end up getting hurt. If not afraid of getting hurt think about the person you are with and if that still doesn’t matter to you think about your family. The more you live that life the harder it is to find your match. You’ll be so confused to what love is you won’t know what’s real and what isnt.

The bible is here to protect you not to hurt we make life harder! It’s actually here to make your life better! It’s here to protect you to have a better life!

Take this challenge if you are in a sexual relationship, not have sex for 6 months and see how you truly feel about that person. Clear your mind to find the truth. To find if you really love that person. Sex shouldn’t make you love that person, their personality and mental stimulation should make you fall in love with that person.

If you’re a “Christian “ and your still having sex you need to cut that aaaallll the way out! (Galations 19-21) Read that scripture and tell me if this is right as a Christian


God gave us this POWERFUL gift called free will, but it’s so sad that many fail to use it due to their perception of what the outcome will be. As Christians what makes Free Will so amazing, is that even though we think we are making a free choice according to our own discretion, we have an Almighty God that has already created an outcome for “free” choice that we think we have made on our own. Do you ever think for one second what the true identity of free will is? Understanding that identity is the fact of being who someone or something is, our free will gives us the choice of who and what we choose to identify with.
If we constantly identify ourselves with fear, we run into the risk of staying stagnant and never using the gift that God has given us. For example we have the free will of jumping out of an airplane tomorrow, but because of your fear of heights you don’t even think about doing it. Therefore you have allowed fear to rob you of your free will to enjoy an incredible experience because you have identified yourself with an outcome that you are not safe. I’m not saying don’t think about your choice and it’s outcomes but think with the idea of multiple possibilities giving room for the positive outcome to out weigh the negative. If you have the desire to be someone or do something use the gift of free will and go after it. Or in Gideon’s ( Judges 6-8) case if a possibility presents itself, that may be hard for you to identify with relate to the positive possibilities that can be attained through the experience and allow God to create you into who you need to be.
Our free will is supposed to be a gift of decision making according to our own identity from Christ. The safety as Christians is to know that God’s outcome and destiny for us is to be great, so the freedom in our choices are already backed up with a plan even if we fail. I challenge you to live according to the free will we were give


Knowing The Truth

Posted on

How many of you have questioned if God exists? How many of you have questioned if the bible

was 100% accurate and true. In being transparent I have questioned it a few times in my life,

and if being honest it was during the times I wasn’t making it a priority to read it every day

and/or if I didn’t like what it said. However if we are Christians, we should understand that The

Word is a lamp to our feet, and in the dark it will light our path (Psalm 119:105). As Christians

we should know that only through the Bible we are offered a complete change of paradigm

that leads to authentic freedom. Studies show that 90% of American’s own a bible, an average

of 4 copies in fact. However 13% read it every day and 50% read it 4 times a year. If freedom

is the reality of the Bible why don’t more people read it? My point of this question is to not

make one feel guilty, but to challenge the more productive question, what obstacle in my life

is keeping me from reading the Bible? I believe the lurking reality is that some believe that

the Bible doesn’t apply to them and/or will work for them. The Bible all of a sudden becomes

irrelevant to the hectic daily schedule, or today’s modern life. There is a common belief amongst

“believers” that the Bible will work for pastors or really spiritual people but not for them. This

line of thinking exposes the lack of faith that most people have in Jesus Christ. When someone

claims to be a believer of Christ, what he or she may have is intellectual assent – agreement

with a set of Christian teachings – and as such would be an incomplete believer.

We should read and study the Bible because it is “God- breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16) meaning

God is talking to us. A lot of questions that we have, has been answered for us in scripture.

What makes the Bible so unique among so-called “holy” books is that it doesn’t merely give

moral teaching and say, “Trust me.” Rather we have the ability to check the prophecies,

historical accounts, and scientific facts that are described. Even though technology has changed,

our mankind and desires hasn’t. Therefore we see the relevance in how to apply the Bible from

a God that created mankind and the desires we have been given. As we study scriptures we

will see that whether we are talking about relationships or societal issues, Solomon was correct

when he wrote “there is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

As you go through this challenge I recommend trying to apply the scripture that you are reading

to an experience and/or situation that you have gone through in your life. A great technique

to remember what you’re studying is to relate what’s being studied, to an everyday lifestyle

or big event in your life. This will cause a new relationship between the events in your life and

what God had to say about them. The by product of this is God shedding truth to your current

life or circumstances and guiding you to the correct path (Psalm 119:05). As you go through

this challenge you can expect a change in your perspective as well as a transformation in your

conduct to be a better reflection of Christ. Much favor over your challenge!
