Good Morning World! Set your sights on the promise of tomorrow. Some seasons call for vision. When today is a struggle tomorrow must have a hope. A plan of purpose will foster the willingness to endure through difficult seasons. A lack of purpose will bring about despair. Is there are cause that calls you? Therein lies purpose. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Become who you are. At times the only thing standing between the adult who was dropped as a child and a seat at the king's table is a decision. Often we aren't walking in our calling because we haven't decided yet to do so. If its a career decision, make it & go forth. If it's a relocation decision, make & move. Not fulfilled? Pray decide & do you. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Submission is not a show of weakness but an act of love. It takes strength to be willing to trust someone else enough to release the free will & submit it to the authority of another. Yet, we do it everyday, most often for things material. Beyond that, full submission to God & mate is for some unthinkable though it is where true liberty rests. Afraid of appearing weak? Be strong. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Beat the devil not people. The Word of God is a weapon, but not against people. It is a spiritual weapon to be stored in our hearts & spoken aloud so that we might overcome the power of darkness. The Spirit of God does the drawing & the driving when the Word is rightly divided. He doesn't need commentary from us except to show love & kindness. Beating people? See the darkness. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Natural sight is only good for the natural. If we look at some situations through the natural eyes we can stumble into fear & doubt the promises of God. Its better to shut down our eyes, close off our ears & only take in the Word of God until we can take authority over a situation. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. Received a negative report? Close your eyes open your ears. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Lack of clarity does not have to mean lack of determination. When we're going through transition we must shift our confidence from knowing the exact destination to certainty that we will make it through the season. The strategy changes from living for tomorrow to seeing tomorrow while living in today. Take confidence that this season will pass. Can't see tomorrow? Focus on today. Have a great day!
For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of… Continue

Good Morning World! Deal with you first. Before we can take stock in the life of another to the extent of deciding what they should do about their circumstances, we should first examine ourselves. Are we where we need to be in every area of our life? Are we at peace with family? Okay in our finances? Seeking God effectively? If not, it may be time to turn our attention inward. Throwing stones? Duck. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Let no one steal your joy. Often when others are going through period of struggle, it troubles them if we are not bothered by things that should have a negative effect on us. If we trust that God is faithful, know that His plans for us are magnificent, we can't help but to walk in peace w/ joy. Some...one pulling on your joy? They can't steal it, but give it to them, with a smile. Have a great day!

Ava Gabrielle Good Morning World! Vision requires strategy. Once we know where we're going, we must develop a strategy for getting there. The strategy includes the objectives, benchmarks, goals & steps to bring it to fruition. Yet, we if are trusting God for the vision we must rely upon Him for the strategy. Prayer is vital, without it we may not proceed with confidence. Have a vision? Ask God to reveal the plan. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Chaos kills, order restores. We cannot abide without clarity in our lives for long before things begin to go progressively more wrong. Order is necessary to function at optimum capacity. Decisiveness is necessary for order to be established. God will lead if we allow, but we must move forthwith & expeditiously to make it happen. Surrounded by chaos? Pray first & stay with it. Have a great day!
Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our… Continue

Good Morning World! When you can see the future, walk out of the past. If we don't see where we are headed, at times it can be premature to move out of the place of God's last instruction. Yet, when the vision of tomorrow becomes clear, the full manifestation is not necessary only a willingness to shed the weight of yesterday and walk toward tomorrow. Have a vision? Walk toward the light. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Being content is good, but proper context is best. We should always learn how to manage any environment in which we may find ourselves, but striving to be where we know we belong is always optimum. Proper context is found when who we are is in sync with where we are in life. At that moment, our unique purpose is revealed. Content? Good, now be best. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Happiness is for everyone, but not until joy is established. Joy can only come from the knowledge that there is an all powerful, all knowing, God who is everywhere at all times & trust that He loves us enough to see us safely through life. When we can fully embrace that revelation, fear & sadness cannot remain for long, happiness becomes the predominant emotion. Sad? Find joy. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Check your circle. Everyone has a sphere of influence that is comprised of people who have access to our psyche. Whether we like it or not, that circle can insulate us for growth or suffocate us to death. Familiarity can be dangerous for stifling the genius that lies within. If our circle isn't participatory in our development, it needs to change. Stuck in a rut? Switch circles. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! You're born but you're not buried. There is a process for determining the guilt or innocence of someone but it may not be expedient to enjoy the trials of another. By the time the dust has settled, often the damage has been done whether the judgment was warranted or not. Showing mercy & discretion for another is a better option. Tempted to weigh-in? Check your own weight first. Have a great day!

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: James 1:19
Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2
Sometimes less is more.

Good Morning World! Respect is a two-way street. We can never charge our decision to injure another whether emotionally or physically as retaliation. Everyone is responsible for their actions. It is never under any circumstances acceptable to say words that harm others or tear them down anymore than it is to bring physical hurt. Words cut just as deep, pain lasts even longer. Hurting someone? Stop. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Lean with it rock with it. Learn to roll with the punches. If we allow every wind of trial & storm of tribulation to disturb our peace & destroy our joy we cannot be productive. Some things may be an annoyance, but most things are not important enough to lose tranquility, particularly if we know that God is in the midst of our circumstances. Being tried by winds? Let life happen. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Follow peace. Anytime that we spend acknowledging the presence of the enemy whether in people or circumstances is time spent giving him credence. Better to focus on the positives in every situation, look for the good in all people & overlook faults. No one is perfect, most of all ourselves so it is fruitless to focus on the faults of another. Engaged in negativity? Pursue peace. Have a great day!
Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace,… Continue

Good Morning World! Stand your ground. Opposition will come, there no such thing as life without it. Tears may be shed, but not for long. We must stand firm in our resolve that no matter what we face, we are not alone. We know that God is with us in every trial, through every struggle & against all odds. We will prevail. Facing a challenge? You may bend but you will not break. Have a great day!
