2017 Is On Its Way. Follow Your Dreams Like Never Before. Do Something Extraordinary!

your-future-joaynnWith 2017 fast approaching in less than two days, make a commitment to do something extraordinary! Follow your dreams like never before. Step out your comfort zone. Declare, “I will have all that God promise me.” You are more than a conqueror! Go get your blessing!!

Don’t let what needs to be left behind you, your past cause you to miss what is waiting in front of you, your future. Press towards the mark. Your future is waiting.

If we were to take a look at our lives and can honestly say we know it was nothing but God that brought us this far, why is it we continue to make choices we believe are in our best interest only to remain stuck because we are comfortable? We cannot transition into the next level if we choose to stay bound. We have to step out of our comfort zone.

God deals with us one thing, one step at a time. He doesn’t rush us. But we cannot move forward if we choose not to press towards the mark. We have to be willing to be led by the Spirit. Otherwise we miss it. We have to want to be guided by God. We have to want to be led by God. We have to want to stop doing the same things we’ve become comfortable with doing to get different results.

If we keep doing the same things that are not what God wants us to do, or never change our mindset and believe we are on the right track because time and time again everything works out in our favor, we will miss the great life God promises us. And live a sub-standard life because of our own choices. Shouldn’t we want more from life if we know we can have it and have it more abundantly? Hasn’t God laid the path out for us? Make the decision to follow his instructions.

When we as believers profess and know God but are stubborn in our ways and choose to be ignorant to what and how we know we should apply the Word of God to our lives, don’t blame God when it doesn’t turn out right. Blame yourself when you suffer consequences as a result of your own doing.

If we know God promises all things will work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28), why do we forsake him and not believe him? Why do we worry? If you truly want to walk in the promises of God, believe what he says, walk in it, change your mindset, and choose to live as he desires. Whatever God says, believe it. He said it. That settles it!

Happy New Year!!

New Year, New You! Let 2016 Be the Year Nothing Stops You From Reaching for the Stars. It’s Your Time to SOAR!

Never Stop Believing JoaynnWith each new year, we make resolutions to change for the better. We have hopes and dreams, with a desire to do better. We live with great expectations that it will be the year our hopes and dreams will flourish and come true. With God, nothing is impossible. There’s nothing he can’t do.

We may never know when God’s plan will manifest in our lives. Live each day expecting the extraordinary. Believing God for miracles and blessings. God has a plan for us that we shall prosper and not fail. No weapon formed against us shall prosper. God’s will shall prevail.

Not everybody can go with you when God elevates you. Some people and some things are not meant to go with you where God is taking you. Let go of the past. Live like there’s no tomorrow. You are destined for great things. It is your time. Walk in your destiny. Go get your blessing!

Whatever it is you are believing God for, let this be the year you declare it will manifest in your life. All you have to do is believe and receive it. It shall be done. B.A.M.! Blessings and miracles.

I believe 2016 is the year of increase, elevation, promotion, and prosperity for many of us. We shall mount up wings and fly like eagles. I’m declaring, decreeing, and claiming it in the name of Jesus.

Today is the first day of the best day of your life. Don’t settle for less than you know has God promised you. Reach for the stars. It’s your time to SOAR! You are more than a conqueror.

Happy New Year!

Be blessed! – JD

Happy New Year!

Philippians 3New Years is hours away for some and has already begun in other parts of the world for others. Many of us made it, and for some the day didn’t come. Be thankful God kept you when the new year comes. Let the new year be a time where you reflect on not what you may not have or didn’t get throughout the year but let it be a time where you thank God for blessing you to see another new year.

Many of you will make New Year’s resolutions that in most cases may fail. God’s resolve are many that began with Christ Jesus and does not fail. God’s resolve is good and is everlasting. The gift he has given you in Christ Jesus. Christ is everlasting.

God resolves to never leave you alone, to meet every need, clothes on your back, and shoes on your feet. He will supply a roof over your head, food to eat, a place to lay your head to sleep. If God be for you, who can be against you? Thank you Jesus! God’s resolve will always be with you.

We all have gone through something. And many of us have survived. It’s not because of us but because of God’s grace we were undeserving of. The storms of life can flow like a river and may cause you to drown in fear or sorrow. God will calm the raging sea and see you through the storm with hope for tomorrow. Whatever you may have gone through, it did not destroy you. God has a plan. It’s designed for your good. God sent it to develop you. There may have been insurmountable trials, coupled with disappointments, illnesses, and setbacks. But your still standing tells you God is not through with you yet.

Many of you may become comfortable with where you are now. And at some point you will become satisfied. God will take you from a place of complacency just as you are and will transform you into the person he wants you to be. It will be between you and Him, not you and me. And when he does, you can’t take everyone with you where God is taking you. Some people cannot travel along on the journey with you. You’ll meet new people along the way. It’s all part of God’s plan to fulfill his purpose. He will have his say. When God moves you, don’t bring old habits from the past into the place God takes you from. Move on with new things leaving old things behind where God moves you from.

Start the New Year right. Resolve to honor and glorify God. Commit. Let past failures motivate you. Pray for wisdom. Rely on God’s strength. Make a decision to let go of the things that hinder you from moving forward and walk in your destiny. Be the best you can be.

Don’t let a day go by that you forget to pray consistently for others. Pray for me too. “As for me, I vow that I will not sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you” 1 (Samuel 12:23). We are not promised today or tomorrow. Live each day as if is your last. And remember, only what you do for Christ will last.

Happy New Year! From my family to yours, have a safe, wonderful, and blessed New Year!

Be blessed! -JD

Philippians 3:12-14 “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)
