An Opportunity To Do Better, By Taking Control of YOU

Who Want’s An Opportunity To Do Better?

A great life means aiming for something, going through ups and downs, and believing it will get better.

God bring it

Struggles

We all go through struggles at some point in our life, when we are younger and then when we get older.

Ups

We are happy when we are up, and everything is going our way; it is a great life.

Downs

Then one thing can happen, and it will feel like your life is all turn over.

Accepting the good with the bad

You have to keep moving forward, if you want to be happy and have a good life.

My church started the Daniel diet consisting of fasting and praying three weeks ago.  It consists of gave up foods that we love and praying for a breakthrough in our lives.  It was asked of the entire church, and to help we were given some inspirational passages from the bible to read from for our 21-day journey.

I kept with it for the most part, of course, I struggle feeling weak from not having meat or protein with every meal.  That mean when I wanted it. My energy level was up and down, no protein it dropped, exercise it went up.

If I was not fasting, the focus would not be on food, and I probably would not be thinking of how hunger.  Normally when you are hungry, you grab whatever and put it in your mouth, but because I was on a fast, I was limited.  I was only allowed to have fruits and veggie during the day, with a couple of nuts here and there.

This was a good opportunity for me, to take control of the one thing that I could do in order to have a fresh start. Next time I will tell you about the ups and downs, and how being hungry can take your life out of your control.  Then I will tell you if I could handle it. It is called fasting and praying for a reason, if you want a better life, you have to take control of your life.

When will my breakthrough come?

When will my breakthrough come?

IMAG2551 IMAG2553I have been doing a 21-day fast with my  church members.  The kind where you cut out sweets and bread; replace them with healthy fruits and vegetables.

The purpose of the fast with prayer is to have a breakthrough in your life. A breakthrough is the achievement of a sudden result from radical change.  We give up all the bad food and focus on a major desire we are hoping for.  The purpose of prayer is to take away all the negative energy going on in your life.

We all need a break sometimes in our life, when the bad things just keep piling up.  There is a desire to turn it around and change the direction of our situation, so that we can move another level in our life.

Getting back to the same weekday routine can be a blessing at times

workingSometimes after having a busy weekend of doing too much, you are glad to get back to the same everyday work routine.  I know when we are at work, we think of all the things that we could be doing if we were not working.  Then on the weekends, we try to squeeze so much in that we are exalted and need to rest.

By now most people have put away all the holidays decorations and cleared away most of the hints of the holiday season.  Now it time to relax and get back to work.

 

 

blockI know I lot of people are looking forward to the Super Bowl football game on Sunday, New England Patriots verse Seattle Seahawks.  If that is not one of your teams, even if it not your team, football is football.  Sort of like the pro bowl this weekend, two teams with the top player, dream teams playing each other, except none of these players teams made it to the Super Bowl.  Sorry guys there is always next year, which also applies to my team.  We will all be watching this game carefully, because of the ball situation.

In the mean time, now we can relax from the holidays and all the rush of the weekend.

Will I see a breakthrough in 21-days, or will it be something expected?

IMAG2545 Will I see a breakthrough in 21-days, or will it be something expected?

 

 

 

Have you ever had a vision, or an eerie feeling about something?  You do not know where it came from, but suddenly, there it is in your mind that. That happens to me occasionally, and as I truly do believe it could be no one but God, helping me along the way.

The church that I attend is doing a twenty-one day fast and praise, to ReSet and Re-Focus for 2015. I am hoping to do so much this year, that this means so much more to me. God always seems to give you more than you expected like last night in church, we were in this passage about Daniel was mourning for, (fasting and praying), and during those twenty-one days, God was fought off demons in his life.

The minister talked about the issues that could be bothering you, taking away your focus. As the minister was preached, I thought about a situation that was going on in my life. In fact, it was in my focus as I walked into church last night, and then again, this morning. It had nothing to do with what I am praying for a breakthrough in; however, it had been bothering for a few MONTHS, could that issued be in the category of demons.

He covered exactly what I was feeling last night, as I sat down and then brought it back to my attention this morning. By the end of the fast I will know, either God going to fix this own issue or take it away. Now I am a believer, and I never take any message from God lightly, so as a believing within or over after twenty-one days, he is showing me something I did not expect.

Vision of the Glorious Man, NKJV, Daniel, Chapter 10

In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a message was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar. The message was true, but the appointed time was long;[a] and he understood the message, and had understanding of the vision. 2 In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. 3 I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.

12 Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.

Has someone ever said to you, that you do not know?

Has someone ever said to you, that you do not know? They may be correct about certain things,  I am not a doctor or a lawyer.  They have to type of responsibility that requires them to know. In fact, there are a lot of things I do not know about.

However, I know how to find out information that I may not know.  There are always ways to get good information or advice.

RE: know, knowing, find out, ways to find out, How to get information, better understanding

 

 

I questionhave taken many business classes in school and written many papers; I even have a degree in business.  Does that make me a great writer?

I have had classes in law, and I have worked for a great number of lawyers.  Does that mean I know all about the laws?

I may have study fashion and design, in college; I have designed many things.  Does that make me a fashion designer?

I have gone to the gym and worked out, does that make me a coach?  Could I apply to coach the San Diego Chargers?

When you use to go in the office of a doctor or lawyer, you would see their certification on the wall, showing that they are qualified to advise you on their specialty.  There also would be lots of books for him to do research; now days most research is done on the computer. A doctor or lawyer can be sued for the advice they give.  If you ask a doctor for medical advice, he will suggest you get examined; a lawyer would say he would need all the facts, before he can give any advice.

When I do not know something, I will usually ask questions, or research to get a better understanding.  Part of getting the best result from anything you do, or want to accomplish is to:

1. When you are concerned or want a better understanding something, it is important to ask questions.  I like to ask a lot of questions, so that you know if you have a clear understanding. On a job, it is important to take good notes, while you are being trained, and reiterate to make sure you understood correctly.

2. You can talk to people who may have done the same thing or gone through a similar process.  They can give you some in sight to what to expect, and information that may help you along the way.

3. Do researching about the subject, will help you get an understanding of the process.

I may know some things and not others, in fact, there are things like sports I would never try to discuss; I just watch the game.  One thing that I learned from going to college is how to research and study, it can help you to be more knowledgeable.  I always say I am a work in progress, so I like to keep up with what is happening.

It is important to be informed, but knowing all the possibilities is another.

How many chances would you like?

How many chances would you like to get something right? 


When you are in school, you have the chance for an education. If you work on the job, that is your chances to learn and make money. When you get involved with someone, that is your chance to have a relationship, and find love. When you do something special, that is your chance to prove yourself and show your true talent. Take it, each single time you get the chance.

How will you get to where you want to go in life if we do not try something? Sometimes it really does require you to step out on faith.  Also you may have to do a little research and do some hard work. It may require all three if you do not want be in the same place tomorrow.

I was just listening to an interview of a person who said I had no job, so I tried to set up a web page.  Now she is making millions.  She is not the only one, there are people everyday that are taking one ideal and making their dreams come true.  

Of course, if your plan does not work out don’t give up.  Just reorganize and try something new, that is what chances are all about.

You really don’t know what you can do if you don’t try.

Can you stop yourself from being a dead man walking?

Dead manRemember the movie where Sean Penn plays a person on death row, “Dead Man Walking.”

Could it be you who is living as a dead man walking around?  The feeling that you have nothing to look forward go in you life.   

 

 

 

There are stories of people who were being released from jail, after serving years for a crime they did not commit. There are stories of people who were poor background, now they are very successful.  


There are times when we all feel as if the odds are not in our favor.  We are thinking to ourselves that there is a reason we do not have a good job.  It is because we never went to college, let alone finished high school.  Who would hire you with your background, so why even try to do better? 

Some people will not move into an area for thinking that the people living there must have a lot of money.  That also applies to certain stores or restaurants and so on there is a feeling that you can’t afford it.  


Are you living in the belief that whatever you do it will not matter, you and your family cannot change your  circumstances?

Well then you are not living; you are just a live.  The good news is you are not dead yet; you can make changes to your life.  We don’t have to walk around as if we are dead. 

Every person who is alive has time to make a change. Can you do something in order to better your life in order to find joy and happiness?  Stop living as if you don’t exist.

Have You Ever Been Around Someone Who Acted As If You Did Not Exist…

The world

Have You Ever Been Around Someone Who Acted As If You Did Not Exist in the World?

Do you know a person who has a better-paying job then you. Obama may be the president, but we know he is no where in the top paying jobs.

These people may choose to live in a better neighborhood, because they can afford it.  They can buy expensive cars and clothing because they have money.  Go on nice vacation and spend lots of money.  To them, you may not exist, even though you work just like they do for a living.  You speak to them or smile to greet them and they will not even acknowledge you, as if they were the president.

You think to yourself; I can buy expensive cars or clothing if I were willing to pay that expensive price.  I can go on vacation to the same places, if I wanted to.  I would have to save and plan for it to do that.

These people you see them on the street, at the grocery store, at the park jogging each day, or even at the same church on Sunday.  However you don’t exit in their world.

What world are they living?  Remember there is only one world that we are all are living in.  We all came in the world the same way; and we will leave here the same way.  If they fall down, you would help them up, even if they do not know who you are.

Some people really do not get it, we are all in this world together.

I am down in the dumps again, thanks you Google.

down hole 2I am in the dumps again, because as I have been telling I am on a journey to move up on Google’s list. I have been researching SEO and other thing that I can do.  Yesterday I was watching this video, and it said to check your webmaster.

Google Webmaster helps by giving you data and tools also there will be a diagnostic of all the things you have been doing wrong on your website.  Yesterday was the second time I went to my Webmaster to view all my sites and guess what I saw, all my errors.

It should have said, when in opened the page, “Who told you to go left when I have been right here all along.”

Now I am back to fixing errors again. Will it ever end? In the video she did give good advice about having a forwarding, just in case you are hacked, they can notify you right away.

If they say you learn from your errors, then I am learning a lot.

YOU’RE IN MY SPACE

Have you ever wanted to say to someone, “You’re in my space?”

IMAG2501

Your breathing room.

Your office space.

Your personal space.

 

 

Is there be a moment or place where no one is allowed to bother you?

Your desk at work, they tell you to make it feel like home, by putting on it some of your personal things. You will be happy, like family pictures on it.  Then someone comes to your desk where you have yourself personal items at, borrowing things off it with no thought to ask you.  If you don’t believe that think about each and everything on your desk that is work related is your responsibility.  It can be stressful not to have the time you need to complete the task.

A lot of people want to invade that space; they don’t feel that you would actually want a little room to yourself.  Why is that?

What about places like the bathroom, have you ever had someone knocked on the door and asked what are you doing? How long are you going to be? Can they come in?

Do you really think you need the personal space, that time or minute to breathe freely and intake your life and your time for you?  Does a close door mean anything?

Of course, I am talking about the boundary that can seen, but there are ones that you can’t see, that another thing.  It always amazes me when I see someone standing too close to a perfect stranger when there is plenty of room.  If you were in an elevator, and there were only two people in it, why were the other person want to stand next right next to you?
