HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I got a text this morning from someone that I didn't know (not in my contacts), but it was a text that I couldn't ignore, it said "Happy New Year 2014!!! Infinite Possibilities!!!" (maybe some of you got that text too) but I was like YES!!!! I receive that. That message really resonated within my Spirit; I'm so excited for this year, mainly because I am open to WHATEVER? God has in store for me.
Don't allow a season to define your entire life

In this journey of Infinite Possibilities we can count on having highs and lows, ebbs and flows, ups and downs because that's life, kind of like a frenemy (it will hug you and stab you in the back or kick you in the face and then help you up and leave you dazed and confused wondering what just happened, lol). We can also expect to be stretched and pulled, poked and prodded, bent and maybe even broken all for the sake of discovery-discovering who we REALLY are in Christ Jesus.
Moving Past Your Past
- Christine Caine
Don't live your life with regrets (could-a, should-a, would-a) don't take your life for granted, (our time here is short, even if you live to a young age of 120), forgive (yourself and others), let it go (hurts, pains, disappointments, etc.) and move on (in the name of JESUS) keep moving. When I think of Infinite Possibilities, I think of a limitless God, who will take me to where I'm suppose to be.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (NLT)
About a week ago I had a conversation with my good friend Angela and we were discussing a young person who is about to embark on college life and he/she already knows what they want to do in life. I thought that was amazing and rare, because how many people really know at that age what it is they want to do IN LIFE, I certainly didn't and at 44 I still don't know, but as a I depend on God for guidance and trust Him, I feel myself finding my way.
The good news is it's not too late to turn back and follow the path God has chosen for your life.
Sometimes we take a detour... take the long way around, because we think we know what is best for us and then one day we wake up only to find ourselves lost or in a stuck position, in the land of misery and unhappiness (I'm talking about myself). So, now I'm on this journey and sometimes it doesn't feel so good, but that's okay, Jesus is with me and for the first time... I'm getting to know Him better and better. Now those that got it right the first time, those that hit the mark... I APPLAUD YOU!!!! STANDING OVATION!!!! and I mean that.
Philippians 4:13 For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need. (NLT)
As I reflect over this past year... 2013, I can see God at work in my life. He's taught me to conquer some of my fears, I've gained wisdom and insight pertaining to Hs Word, I've learned to be more observant and non/less judgmental (of others and myself), I've learned to listen more and speak less, I've learned to die to myself (my own desires and wants) which is a daily process in itself, I'v learned to not let others DEFINE me and I've learned to TRUST GOD MORE, not that I hadn't in the past... just MORE.
I've made new friends that I'm thankful for; I've probably said this before, but I'll say it again. When it comes to friends, I have hit the friendship lottery. It is such a blessing to be surrounded by women and men who inspire and encourage me in the ways of God and I can do the same in return, that's AWESOME! As you journey into 2014 don't forsake the Infinite Possibilities because nothing is impossible with God.
Until Next Time, Remember You Are Blessed!
