 Resetting - Renewing - Restoring - Rejoicing

START WHERE YOU ARE
Sunday; July 23, 2017
Do not tremble and do not be afraid; Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it? And you are My witnesses. Is there any God besides Me, Or is there any other Rock? I know of none.'" Isaiah 44:8
TODAY’S CHALLENGE -  IS TO KNOW THAT LIVING A HAPPY – WELL – BALANCED – PROSPEROUS – SUCCESSFUL LIFE TAKES A LOT OF PRAYER – A LOT OF GIVING – A LOT OF LAUGHING AND DEFINITELY A LOT OF LIVING. It is through practicing your own joy – your own living – your own loving – your own moments and make them many moments of laughter that you achieve fulfillment in every area of your life.  
START WHERE YOU ARE. Let today – this moment be a time of reflecting – let this moment be a time of acknowledgement – let this moment be a time of investing – let this moment be a time of transforming. What do you want, out of life or for dinner? What are you great at? What's on your bucket list? What motivates you to get up in the morning? There comes a time when we have to realize that each day is the beginning of a new year – each moment is the beginning of a new 24 hours – so today get ready to START WHERE YOU ARE. Today as you journal – today as you work on YOUR VISION BOOK – START WHERE YOU ARE. Some say I can’t save but yes you can – save 1.00 a week and within 52 weeks you have $52.00 and guess what if you can do $2.00 – it becomes $104.00 and so on and so on and if you can do $10 or more then it becomes $520.00 or more. Don’t wait until 12/31 or each year to make new year’s resolutions.  Make them each and every day – each morning as you arise – seek ye first the Kingdom of God and each night as you lie down to rest and sleep – thank God for all that He has blessed you with in that day.  You see one thing we have to realize is that we are here now and in this moment and that this moment – yes this moment right here counts. Because if you really think about it all that we are guaranteed is this moment right here. START WHERE YOU ARE
Trust in the LORD forever, For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.  Isaiah 26:4
START WHERE YOU ARE.  You have to learn to love yourself so that you are able to love others and create the life you want. Today be positive – be happy. It is time for more prayer – it is time for more seeking the Kingdom of God – it is time to know that you know that God is with you. It is time to allow the Word of God to transform you – but the only way to do that is to get into His Word and to dig deeper than you ever have before. Remember that life is a journey and not a destination – so on a journey you keep moving – you keep it going – you keep pressing in and pressing on. You see life is a series of changing patterns. Things will not always happen as we see they should but that is the moments when we need to hold fast to God’s unchanging hands and we have to know that we know that all things are working out for our good. And because we know this – and we know this to be true – this is why we need to at all times live each and every moment of our life to the fullest. To live with an overflowing heart of gratitude – of love – of forgiveness. You see it is time now to enjoy the savour that living is now – life is now. It is time that we START WHERE YOU ARE. 
Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:8
START WHERE YOU ARE.
This week take a moment to reflect on Philippians 3:12-16: 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. 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, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you. Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
