Child of God……..

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4

Count on overcoming

As I read this scripture, I allowed it to resonate with me. I allow it to mean something to me because it ministers so deeply. I had to change the subject tense so that I could minister this directly to myself, repeatedly. Give it a try. Yes, right now, right as you are, loudly or quietly, say “I am of God and I have overcome those that are not, because greater is he that is in me, than he that is in the world.” Say it again and focus on, ” greater is he that is in me.” How does that make you feel saying this? Do you feel strong, secure, or even invincible? I wanted you to focus on that distinguished confidence given text because if you don’t realize the potential that has been placed in you no one else will. If you can’t recognize just how much goodness is on the inside of you then you will find it hard to see it in others. The spirit that lives within you counts on you to believe greater in every situation so that even when it seems hard it’s not hard for you.

What do you believe; do you believe that you are great? And not just a great person or do great things but if all the congratulatory’s, hand claps, and great jobs were stripped away, would you still feel great just because of the spirit that lives within you? Is it enough for you to be able to say that because I serve a God that loves me and cares for me no matter what comes my way or where I may fail at I’m still great because of who my heavenly father is within me?

Count on being enough

It will never be enough for anyone to think more of you and what you can do if you do not think it and believe it yourself. No matter how much someone else may want for you to have the best or do better, it is only achieved if you make the choice to be more. No matter how much a person may see the greatest potential on what you can deliver and what you can do, you have to decide is that enough for you. It’s not enough if you don’t see the same potential in yourself. It’s not enough if it takes others to blow you up because after all the smoke has dissipated what’s left standing in you. If you are encouraged to think that you are great and you have true potential and that you can make such a significant difference, this would mean everything if you too believe it. If you can believe in yourself even when others don’t show you the love and support you count on. Count on God. Even in all the grandeur appeal, even in all your greatness, there is nothing more greater than rising above diminished expectations and placing your trust in something greater, someone bigger than you. Its then you can count on knowing that you are already more than enough because of who lives within you.

Count on unexpected blessings

No one else on this earth can finish your race but you. People may provide you with resources, knowledge, and even power but your path is a chosen one that’s necessary for you to move forward in. Having faith in the word, requires your trust even when you can’t see how God’s intentions unfold. In Isaiah 55:8, “for my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.” Although we may have other intentions and our life’s plan figured out, it doesn’t excel the intentions that God has for us and that in itself is a great thing. The intentions God has for you is not daunting or a disappointment, rather than the blessing happening when you want it to, it happens for you when it needs to. The blessing begins to unfold when it’s your time.

HAPPY 1 YEAR BLOG-A-VERSARY to me with my blogging site as a personal writer on content featuring all things Faith, Family, and Community.

I am so truly blessed to have the talent, passion, and motivation to have created and shared authentic based writing content that so many have benefited from. Sometimes I found what I was writing in hope of inspiring others, also inspired me. When I first created my website and began my blog in February 2021, there was a message that I placed on my site under message from the writer, called a new thing. It was written by me and the purpose of that was to not only share what I knew God was doing and saying in my life but it was to also let you know just how much he wanted to do something new in yours too.

As for me….

This (FFC) new thing didn’t start for me in 2022. When the new year started, you heard a lot of people speaking the word new, as though it never existed. It existed prior to 2022 and it will continue to exist but the meaning of it resonates something different once you discover what has never been before in your life, that new thing. This new thing is not what someone else is doing or not what someone else has, it’s what God is doing in you that no other can replicate no matter how glorious or purposeful it may seem. It’s what God continues to do in you that you can’t find in riches or vain things. It’s a comprehension unlike any other because you finally realize the peace that it comes from. It’s the call he has for your life. God igniting FFC in me had never been prior to 2021, but it is now and it’s still present now and as I am led by God, I will continue now on this journey in all things Faith, Family, and Community.

FFC’s Quote of Today

Reading this quote was such a powerful sentiment to me on my special day. I not only was inspired but I was also able to pin point some of the promises that are not only agreeable but I fashion as whole-heartedly. I will continue to strive doing one that I deem important, to be to the utmost, true to myself. How about you, can you say that you have you been true to yourself, giving the very best version of you? What promise do you wish to achieve?

“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make optimism come true. To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deed. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

-Christian D. Larson

My daughter

I regard this day as beautiful,  if ever beautiful was another meaning, it could not amount to how precious this day begin. It began with you, my daughter.

What a beautiful day. A day of love, a day of happiness, a day of gratitude, and a day of wishing. And this day, I’m wishing my daughter a very happy birthday.

On this early snow flurried day, may this good omen be not forgetful. May it be the continued race of a created beginning that only gets better as you grow, well in truth, well in grace, and well in the favor of our everlasting father.

Happy Birthday my daughter, my Brai-ly. ❤️
