Just Say It…

Your ‘Fearless’ action for today,

(and I suggest through the entire season),

is to say MERRY CHRISTMAS!

.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  I love this time of year!  I love the music, the lights, colors, gatherings, spending time with family and friends – basically everything.

.

Of course, I do realize it isn’t that way for everyone.  There is the stress of gifts, shopping, what to buy, how much to spend, making people happy, and on and on. It can be stressful but I chose to love it anyway. I want to share a little love, hope, peace and joy.  It is Christmas, a time to share the love and hope of Christ!  It isn’t just any holiday.

.

Christmas is MUCH more than “Happy Holidays”.  Do you know what I mean?  Most everywhere I go they are saying “Happy Holidays”, and to me it is more.  It is CHRISTMAS… not just another holiday, and it is a time to love. Share the love of Christ to everyone, no preaching, no judging, just accepting and showing unconditional love. It can be a smile, a pat on the back, a hug, a note, a phone call… so many ways.

 

Christmas Is a Time To Love

.

So let’s say MERRY CHRISTMAS!  

.

You know what I mean.  At the check out at the grocery store, Walmart, restaurant, wherever… when someone says Happy Holidays – SMILE and say MERRY CHRISTMAS!  They are told to say the politically correct thing… Happy Holiday works for everyone… right?  Well, not for me, so I just sweetly, nicely and with a smile, say . . . MERRY CHRISTMAS!

.

Don’t be afraid.. just say it and that’s it.  You are done.  Just by saying those words, they will know that you are a person of faith and it is CHRIST-mas that you are celebrating. It is not winter, snow, etc. It is the birth of Christ, the Prince of Peace, the Savior.

.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

‘Til later – Remember . . .

Life is Not a Matter of Chance – It’s a Matter of Choice.

Choose Wisely and Go Out Make it a Great Week!

Love Your Neighbor…

It’s the Christmas season, and as we take time to look round and be grateful, to help others, to share what we have with others, I believe it is also a great time to look at yourself.  Yes YOU! – You are a special and beautiful child of God, created for great things.. for Him… For the World. DAH – that IS why He came into the world at Christmas– for YOU, for me, for all of us.

 

We usually get the … Love Your Neighbor... part correct, but so often I see people forget the next part . . .  AS YOURSELF.  This isn’t the ego, aren’t I wonderful type of love that I’m talking about.   This is love yourself for who you are created to be.  Love the gifts and talents you were born with… love yourself. You might need to LIKE yourself.

.

What can you do today to begin to discover You?  What do you want, what do you like.  Do you remember the part in The Runaway Bride, when she didn’t know what kind of eggs she liked because she just always chose what her latest fiancée liked?  What do you like? What do you want in your life?

.

As we go into the New Year, let’s explore and discover YOU!  What is new for you this year?  What do You really want?

.

Good questions right?  Think on it and we’ll talk again soon.

Stop Believing the Lies You’re Telling Yourself …

STOP Believing the Lies You are Telling Yourself

and Choose to Speak Truth!

When you do:

  • You can Move On

  • You can Have Joy

  • You can Move Forward

  • You can have an Abundant Life

  • You can be Free

What are the Lies You tell Yourself?

.

.

You know the song lyrics… “Stop, take a look and listen…”  That’s what we need to do.  Begin to listen to our thoughts, the words in our heads and the words we say out loud.  Once you hear the negative words or the lies that you are telling yourself then you can Stop.

  • I don’t have a choice

  • I’m going nowhere

  • I can’t change my life

  • I don’t have any talent

  • There’s nothing out there for me

  • I’m too tired

  • There’s no hope

  • No one will hire me

  • _____________________

 .

Recognize it for the LIE that it is and then you can STOP!  Stop and change the lies to the truth.

I know I’ve said this before BUT  just in case you forgot – here are some truths about You: 

  • Talented

  • Have a purpose

  • Have a calling

  • Gifted

  • ______________ (You fill in the blank)

.

Begin speaking Truth out loud to yourself everyday!

Put Good In — Good comes Out

matthew-12-34

It is so important what we put into our heart and minds.  We can fill it with goodness and positive thoughts or we can put in ugliness and negativity. Sometimes it is just filling it with mindless, nothingness.  Each day we have 24 hours, some of them are at work, play, home, TV, reading, time with family, and with friends.  We all fill our days differently.  In the same vein those activities are part of what we are ‘feeding’ ourselves everyday.  Watching TV, movies, reading, listening to a wide variety of things, radio, podcast, webinars.

.

I think that is why the scripture says think on these things: 

whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.  Phil 4:8

.

A number of years ago, when my kids we just toddlers, I used to watch soap operas.  Oh, I enjoyed them, and for a long time, didn’t see anything wrong with them.  However, I began to realize that I was beginning to get restless, and seemed, ummm I’m not exactly sure, but just not content.  

 .

The Lord began speaking to me about making a change.  I wrestled with it a while, but then realized ‘for me’, I needed to stop watching them.  I am not preaching that soap operas are bad, I am just saying that for me, they became a negative influence in my life.  Now, I haven’t missed them, it’s been probably 20 or so years.

.

When we focus on pure, and just, lovely, and good things that is what fills us up.  Therefore, when we speak, that abundance of  ‘good’ things come spilling out.  We become a blessing to others and we uplift and encourage others because of the good things we have spent time thinking about and ‘filling’ up on. 

.

You may have something in your life that is making you less than content in your life, maybe how you talk to others is reflective of what movies you watch, or the books you are reading. 

Sometimes it is good to just take a look and do a little evaluating. You can beat  that if you are spreading time in God’s Word, that more positive and life changing words are coming out when you talk. That is a wonderful thing!

.

Put Good in – Good comes out! (Or you could say, Put God In, God comes Out =)

BLESSINGS! Go out and make it a great day!
