“Whose Business Comes First?”
In life we often focus on how we can achieve or receive our hearts’ desires. Some of us will fight tooth and nail to get what we want. During the pursuit, we sometimes neglect the needs of those close to us. Is there something you truly desire, but haven’t been able to achieve it? Are you putting the desire before the needs of someone else?
In order to receive the desires of your heart, you must seek God’s face and His righteousness. God wants to bless our desires and needs. However, He wants us to commit ourselves to trusting in Him and committing to His plans. Focus on carrying out God’s purpose and will for your life. Take care of His affairs first! When we decide to take care of God’s business, He will bless ours.
Psalm 37:3-4 Trust in the Lord, and do good, dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness, Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
“Are You Still Looking For The Yellow Brick Road?”
One of my favorite childhood films was about a young lady who wanted to find her way home and a threesome of characters who were also in pursuit of fulfillment. As they “eased on down the road”, they encountered many barriers and obstacles to reach the mystic person who they believed could magically solve their problems, only to discover he didn’t have any power. Are you looking for something you already have? Are you looking externally for completion?
Often, we look in external places for the things that are internal. Give yourself silent moments during the day to reflect and assess what you have. In most cases, we have what we are looking for already. Entrust God to place you on your golden path which leads to everything needed to become complete.
Psalm 25:4 Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths.

“Are You Willing To P.U.S.H. Through It?”
Football season is here!!! All over the country, players are working out, reading play books and doing drills to prepare themselves mentally and physically for the gridiron. They push their minds and bodies to the limit so they won’t give up when the going gets tough. Have the challenges or ordeals of life pushed you to the limit? Are you ready to throw in the towel?
In life, we encounter challenges or situations that pushes us into a corner. Instead of fighting, some of us concede to defeat and throw in the towel. God wants us to P.U.S.H., Pray Until Something Happens. Prayer allows us to get support from a power greater than ourselves. Ask God to make a difference in your life. Pray and focus on God, believe that the miraculous can occur. He will be sure to show up and show out!
I Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
“Can You Stand To Be Corrected?”
One of the hardest things to admit is being wrong. Whether we are debating a call on the playing field or arguing with a spouse, we will fight to the bitter end. Have you ever stood your position on an issue to find out in the end that you were wrong?
God has a motive for correcting our behavior. It is through our mistakes that we become more savvy in living. We can’t learn or understand God’s life lessons if we focus on our rebuttal to His discipline. Listen and humble yourself to the voice of God. Allow God to speak wisdom into your heart and soul. The Lord corrects us because He loves us.
Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor detest His correction; for whom the Lord loves He corrects, just as a father the son in whom he delights.

“Do You Know The Twins?”
Twins are two offspring resulting from the same pregnancy. They can be identical or fraternal. Some twins dress, look, and sound alike. But, many have strikingly different personalities. Yet when together, the synergy they create produces more success than if they worked alone. Do you know any twins? Have you met Grace and Mercy?
God has a set of twins named, Grace and Mercy! Grace is a free gift of unmerited pardon. Mercy is gratitude and steadfast love. Alone they are powerful! However, when in tandem with one another, they are a well of unbelievable blessings. Ask God for His grace and mercy. Upon request, God’s blessings will comfort and rescue you in your time of need.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
“Do You Believe In The Impossible?”
It easier to go along with the crowd, than to stand firm in what you believe. Some may try to discredit your beliefs when it doesn’t align with theirs. Sometimes, even those closest to us are unable to see what you see. Are you being coerced to follow a crowd of limited thinkers? Are you capable of believing in the impossible?
God desires for us to think out of the box. He wants to show us the power of our faith. We have limited abilities, but all things are possible through God. Don’t allow your circumstances to dictate your outcomes. God is bigger and greater than any situation you may encounter. When you place your belief in Christ, He will make the impossible possible.
Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
