5 TIPS ON HOW TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS

5 TIPS ON HOW TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS

Distractions are a danger to your dreams and destiny and you have to get rid of them. Distractions are a plan of Satan to steal, kill and destroy your dreams and visions before they become reality. The secret is stay focused. Focus on what is deep in your heart and what God has spoken to you. Don’t get caught up on the money or fame but take the journey He has planned for you. Don’t allow anyone or anything to talk you out of the dream and goals you have in your heart. Quickly put the negative people in their place and move on. Be careful whom you allow to influence your thinking and also becareful what you give attention to.

John 10:10, The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. But Jesus came that you may have life and have it abundantly.

-I have listed 5 tips below that will help you avoid distractions and keep you focused.

1. BE CALM AND CLEAR YOUR MIND

When you are overwhelmed with a lot of things to accomplish I encourage you to stay calm and trust God. Clear your mind by renewing it with the word of God and meditate on it. That will help you reset your mind and remove every clutter and distractions that have been hindering you from reaching your highest potential.

Zephaniah 3:17 “For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.

2. DEAL WITH ONE TASK AT A TIME

When it comes to focusing and avoiding distractions dealing with one task at a time is a must because it allows your mind to be clear and not cluttered. Juggling a lot of tasks at once will cause you to be overwhelmed which will leave your mind confused and you will end up accomplishing nothing because there were to many distractions. Breathe, take your time , tackle one thing at a time, it will make your life easier and you will be able to reach and accomplish your goals without distractions because your mind is now clear and focused.

3. DETOX FROM SOCIAL MEDIA

Social media is the biggest distraction in this century. It will cause you to focus on other things instead of your dreams. Social media has caused a lot of distractions where people spend most of the time comparing their lives with their friends and other people’s lifestyles and they end up having no time to focus on their lives and dreams. The problem with this is that it has affected so many people in a negative way and caused a serious impact on their self-esteem. Taking a break from social media will help you refocus and remove all the unnecessary distractions that have been destroying your life and hindering you from achieving your dreams.

4. RESIST THE URGE OF PROCRASTINATION

Whatever you do avoid procrastination. Procrastination is a mentality that causes you to avoid responsibility in favor of feeling good right now. It makes you postpone projects and tasks which allows room for more distractions to be present in your life which will cause you not to accomplish anything. The enemy will bring distractions in your life so that you can fail to accomplish your goals and dreams. Do not second guess you ideas, plans and what God has called you to do and just do it.

5. PRAY FOR DAILY FOCUS

When your mind is overwhelmed and surrounded by many distractions that are stealing your focus stop everything your doing and pray to God to deliver you from the spirit of distraction that is coming against your dreams and destiny.

Say this prayer with me…

Dear lord deliver me from the spirit of distraction that is stealing my focus, joy , happiness, dreams and destiny. Help me to be focused in all I do, to Your praise and glory… as well as being both fruitful and increasingly productive, May I concentrate my efforts in the most efficient and effective way, so that I may fulfill my daily duties and responsibilities with creativity and integrity. Fill me with the wisdom and resourcefulness I need to be proactive in carrying out my task with a cheerful disposition and a sensitive spirit. Lord it is my desire that I reflect Your love and grace to all with whom I come in contact.. so that Your name will be honoured and glorified – this I ask in Jesus name, Amen!!!

5 TIPS ON HOW TO STAY PEACEFUL IN NEGATIVE SITUATIONS

5 TIPS ON HOW TO STAY PEACEFUL IN NEGATIVE SITUATIONS

The peace of God is such a powerful weapon against the enemy. It destroys every negative lie the devil tries to tell us so that we can doubt our identity in Christ. God knew this world will be filled with so much pain, hatred and enemies that’s why He sacrificed His son Jesus Christ to be our peace.The peace that Jesus brought from His death and resurrection is a peace that lasts forever. When the peace of God resides in you there is nothing that will stand in your way because negativity cannot stand or live in the same space where God’s peace resides.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. – John 16.33

So, letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. – Romans 8:6

And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. – Colossians 3:15

  1. BE STILL AND KNOW HE IS GOD

In every negative situation always train your mind to stay still, don’t over react. The devil will always use negative situations to distract you from your destiny and cause you to be mad, aggravated and you will have a negative mindset to. Don’t allow the devil to play on your mind and emotions. Have faith in God and know that He is the Lord over every situation in your life. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10.

  1. KNOW THAT GOD FIGHTS YOUR BATTLES

No matter what negativity you are facing have peace and know that God is fighting on your behalf. Even when you feel like you can’t handle the situation, stay calm and think about God’s greatness and how He got your back. He says in His word that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Stay calm and know that victory belongs to you because God is on your side. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace Exodus 14:14

  1. YOU DON’T WAR AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD

When negative situations show up in your life it’s actually a spiritual battle working against you. Even when you are surrounded by negative people working against you just know they are being used by the enemy to distract you from the will of God. Negativity is a spiritual force of evil that wants to destroy your life. When these situations occur, I want you to know you have the power within you to resist the devil and he will flee. So, do not engage in arguments, fights or confrontations with the negative people or situations. Pray to God to grant you the spirit of peace. Rest in the peace of God and He will be your guide and defender in any situation. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand-Ephesians 6:12-13

  1. KNOWING THAT GODS PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE IS GREATER THAN THE NEGATIVE SITUATIONS

God’s plan for your life is greater than any negativity. The enemy will try to cause negativity to hinder your purpose because he knows your future is greater than your past. We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can always control how we choose to respond and react in situations. Choose to keep a positive attitude and thankful heart regardless of what you’re going through.“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord; plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11. The devil will try to get you frustrated and confuse your mind and spirit but always remember to stay peaceful and positive all the time. Let the joy of the lord fill your heart even in the most difficult situations. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

  1. PUT ON THE MIND OF CHRIST TO OVERCOME NEGATIVE SITUATIONS

Every negativity or situation in your life, whether big or small, is something God will use to produce more strength, faith and perseverance in you if you let Him! So, put on the mind of Christ. Have faith and think of things that are true, positive and heavenly. Renew you mind daily with the word of God, it will protect you from all negativity and you will be filled with the wisdom of God to overcome anything. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you-Philippians 4:7-9.

God Answers prayers- Trust Him!

God Answers prayers- Trust Him!

“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. Psalms 91:15

prayer is a powerful tool we use to communicate with God when we need something. God also states it in the Bible that if we need anything we should ask him and He will provide.

 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24

I believe sometimes many of us get to that state when we ask God for something and we haven’t received the manifestation of what we have prayed for and we get so frustrated in the waiting process. If you are one of those people i want to encourage you today to trust God’s timing. He knows the right time and season for your breakthrough. So do not give up on praying and waiting on your miracles and remember God is always on time and He knows your wants and needs and He will provide.

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

Here are some examples in the bible of how God answered prayer when His children trusted Him. I believe He can do the same for you today….

*Now it came about in the course of those many days that the king of Egypt died. And the sons of Israel sighed because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry for help because of their bondage rose up to God. So God heard their groaning; and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. God saw the sons of Israel, and God took notice of them. Exodus 2:23-25

*Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see ” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. When they came down to him, Elisha prayed to the LORD and said, “Strike this people with blindness, I pray.” So He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha. Then Elisha said to them, “This is not the way, nor is this the city; follow me and I will bring you to the man whom you seek.” And he brought them to Samaria. 2 Kings 6:17-20

*Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested. 1 Chronicles 4:10

*But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your petition has been heard, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you will give him the name John. Luke 1:13

No matter how long it takes God will always answer your prayers. Just like He did it for the men and the women in the Bible, He will do the same for you. Trust God and know that He is all knowing and faithful God.

I encourage today, Jesus loves you and His will is to answer all your prayers. Remember His delays and not His denials. For those who do know him and rely on him, Jesus seems to be wildly generous in his offer: “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.”John 15:7.  To “remain” in Him and have His words remain in us means we conduct our lives aware of him, relying on Him, listening to what He says. Then be able to ask him whatever we want. “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us then whatever we ask ,we know that we have what we asked of him.”

Whatever you have prayed and it has not manifested yet don’t give up but wait on the Lord and trust Him. His got all the answers to your prayers and He will never abandon you or live you defenseless. He got you covered and His answer for you is yes and Amen.

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:3

God is fighting your battles

God is fighting your battles

This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s- 2 Chronicles 20:15.

Many times when we are afraid, we tend to panic and try to do things our own way without involving God and putting Him at the center of our battles. Everytime you choose to walk through trials with out God you will notice that you are more frastruated and confused. The battle gets harder, tougher and extremely difficult. It’s all because God was not involved or at the center of your equation.

God sent His son Jesus to die for you so you wouldn’t have to carry the burden alone. Jesus came so that He would carry all you burdens and fight all your battles.

Cast all your cares and burden upon God because He cares for you. He suffered, He bled, He died , He endured persecution so that you didn’t have to.

Don’t allow the enemy to lie to you and convince you that you deserve to suffer because you don’t. You have freedom in Christ Jesus.

I know many of you have been going through a lot of battles that have challenged your faith and overwhelmed your heart. The season as been hard and you have been crying out to God for a breakthrough and God has heard your prayers and He wants you to be still and and know that He will fight for you and He is still God no matter what you are facing, He will see you through anything.
The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace- Exodus 14:14

5 Ways To Overcome Failure and achieve your dreams!

5 Ways To Overcome Failure and achieve your dreams!

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Galatians 6:9

Here are the 5 ways that I have learned and I know will help you overcome failure and achieve your dreams!!
1. Set your mind where giving up is not an option
You will have to be determined in your mind never to give up no matter what your faced with. Have a mindset of winning no matter how many times you fail. You have to realize that failure is necessary and it plays such an important role to your dream and goal achievement. Failure helps unveil the hidden mask of what you didn’t know so that it causes you to search your heart more, pay attention to details and anything that has kept you stuck in a certain state. Look at failure as an enlightenment, an opportunity to gain more wisdom and a gateway to your promotion. Once you have that mindset then giving up will never be an option and you will soar and achieve all your dreams and live a fulfilled life far beyond your wildest dreams.
2. Ignore the naysayer and the haters
When you are pursuing your dreams, you will be faced with setbacks and you will fail in the presence of friends, co-workers and family, most of the time you will be made fun of, mocked and talked about negatively. It will hurt but don’t give up. Do not listen to the naysayers that are laughing at your downfall or mistakes and keep your mind focused on the goal without being distracted. There will always be people who will want to dim your light by using their words but I encourage you to silence the outside noise and remember no matter how many times you have failed you still have the option to do it all over again and win. You have the power within you to raise above your failure. Trust God with your failures and challenges because with God all things are possible and (His strength is made perfect in your weakness– 2 Corinthians 12:10)
3. Anything worth having never comes easy
Anything worth having will always have some kind of resistance. Your dreams will cost you something to achieve them. Nothing comes easy, you will have to pay the price to achieve your dreams. The secret is not giving up no matter what. Everybody has to suffer for their path. Through your pain you will gain strength and knowledge to make right choices. Failure will mature you. It’s in the process that you will discover that you have more strength in you to achieve your dreams. I know it will get hard sometimes, it will hurt and maybe you will shed some tears in the pursuit of your destiny but it will all be worth it-. You will come out stronger on the other side if you never give up on you and your dreams.
4. Face your fears head on
Failure is so painful, discouraging and can cause you to second guess your destiny because you are unsure and afraid that your dreams won’t come true. The fear of failure will always hinder you from your greatest blessing. Don’t be afraid to fail. Failure is part of life. Many times, when we are faced with failure it causes us think different, make changes and challenges us to be better. Embrace your failures because they are a gateway to your breakthrough. Face your fears head on and know failure happens to make you stronger, confident and better. Once you have acknowledged the wisdom you have gained from your failures a transformational shift will happen that will change your life forever and you will achieve your dreams.
5. Use Failure as a learning experience to make things better
When we fail, it should be a chance to learn from our mistakes and own up to them and then make the necessary changes to make things better. When you use the knowledge, you gained from your failures you will be able to do tremendous things and achieve extraordinary things because you have not allowed your failures to control and destroy your destiny. Always use the lessons and knowledge you have learned to improve yourself. Always remember this when you don’t give up you will always achieve your goals and dreams.

5 Reasons why we need the Holy Spirit!

5 Reasons why we need the Holy Spirit!

Who is the Holy spirit?

The Holy Spirit is the active presence of God manifest in the tangible world. He is God the Father and God the Son  who empowers, purifies, teaches, comforts, convicts and guides those who put their faith in Jesus Christ.

  1. He empowers us: God knew you going to have dreams and goals and he knew that sometimes you are are going to lack motivation and confidence to fulfill your goals thats why He gave us His Holy Spirit to empower us and move us in the right dirrection. The Bible says, “The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God” –1 Corrinthians 2:10-11. I like that about the Holy Spirit. He goes where I cannot. He comprehends things I cannot. He does things I cannot. But when it comes to the things I need to do, He equips me to do them.
  2. He is revealer of God’s truth.: The Spirit’s presence within us enables us to understand and interpret God’s Word. The Bible says…But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.(John 16:13).When the enemy tries to speak a false identity to you remember that the Spirit of God will speaks to you your true identity as child of God. God’s own Spirit speaks truth over you.
  3. He is our comforter: When you are going through test and trials the holyspirit will always comfort you in the dark times of your life. when you going through hard times remember to call on the Holy Spirit. God has made him available to to you to help you when your weak, hurt and hopeless to comfort you and give you hope for the future. But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor,Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you. John 14:26
  4. He gives us spiritual gifts: The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all. To some people the Spirit gives a message of wisdom. To others the same Spirit gives a message of knowledge. To others the same Spirit gives faith. To others that one Spirit gives gifts of healing. To others he gives the power to do miracles. To others he gives the ability to prophesy. To others he gives the ability to tell the spirits apart. To others he gives the ability to speak in different kinds of languages they had not known before. And to still others he gives the ability to explain what was said in those languages. All the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. He gives gifts to each person, just as he decides. -1 Corinthians 12:7-11
  5. He intercede on your behalf in accordance with God’s will: When you pray, it’s His role to intercede on your behalf in accordance with God’s will. “We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express” –Romans 8:26. I love that! Let this verse give you assurance and confidence in your prayer life. Even when you don’t understand yourself, the Holy Spirit knows your heart and is at work communicating it to God.

5 Tips on How To Stop Procrastination

5 Tips on How To Stop Procrastination

What is procrastination? It’s the act or habit of putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention. Sadly this is a common experience for many of us. Many times we have wanted to stop procrastinating but we can’t seem to find the motivation to complete an immediate task which has affected us in our daily life and in the pursuit of fulfilling our dreams and destiny.

For example many of us have dreams of starting a business, writing a book, starting a blog…extra… But we have been procrastinating about the ideas that we have been putting them off and finding the many reasons why our dreams, ideas, goals will not come true.

What procrastination does it causes you to be lazy about your dreams that you lose the motivation to implement your ideals because you keep on second guessing yourself and thinking about what would go wrong or if your good enough and you end up putting off or delaying to follow your dreams and do something about it. Procrastination is a danger to your dreams and destiny,

The Bible says in James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

This is so true because double mindedness will always cause you to second guess yourself you will never get anything done. You have to let go of the fear of failure because it causes you to procrastinate that you end up not fulfilling your purpose or living your fullest potential.

I have noticed this in my own life, whether it a business idea or writing a blog or writing a book, every time that I have procrastinated I never got anything done..I kept telling myself I will do it next time and the next time became the next day and the next day became the next month…you get the idea!. The struggle was real!! I was tired of it and I decided no more procrastination. So I started to motivate myself and find things that would keep me motivated ( by listening to a podcast,motivating video) to stay creative and present to fulfill the task at hand. As I kept on practicing these tips that I’m going to share with you I found them to be very helpful and they kept away procrastination. Anytime the feeling of procrastination starts to linger around I go through the steps again.

If you have been struggling with procrastination here are 5 tips that will help over come procrastination so you can live your dreams and fulfill your destiny.

  1. STAY MOTIVATED Staying motivated can be tough even under the best of circumstances. Personally, I struggled with motivation. I’ve fought through major failures, setbacks, upsets, and strings of defeat, one after another. Through it all, staying motivated was hard. But I stayed committed, even though it was hard and I wanted to throw in the towel and give up, I refused to quit and stayed the course and started seeing positive results and God also being so faithful to me. This motivated me even more. This I know with perseverance and never giving up and encouraging yourself, seeking guidance and being motivated by other speakers via audio and video podcasts and most of all with prayer you can stay motivated and achieve all your dreams and fulfill your destiny.woman
  2. FOCUS ON YOU MOST IMPORTANT TASKS. You can simplify your list by identifying the tasks that have the biggest impact on your career or dreams or life and do them first thing in the morning. Pick one of the 3 most important tasks that absolutely must be completed by the end of the day. Two should relate to an urgent project with an immediate deadline and one should be part of a long-term goal. When you stay focused you give no room to procrastination.A-black-woman
  3. GET RID OF EXCUSES Do any of these sound familiar? I don’t know if I’m good enough, maybe next time ,I have to be in a good mood, I will wait till I have more time, I don’t have enough money to start,,,,,STOP IT!!! Be honest with yourself: These are excuses. Sure, it might be nice to ”be in the mood and have enough money” but waiting for that to happen can mean you will never start your project.Sad woman holding her forehead with her hand on white background
  4. GET RID OF CATASTROPHIZING One of the biggest reasons why we procrastinate is because we catastrophize, or make a huge deal out of something. It may be related to how tough, how boring, or how painful it will be to complete the task; whatever the case, the underlying theme is that doing the task will be “unbearable.” In reality, challenges, boredom, setbacks and hard work will not kill you or even make you sick. Procrastination, on the other hand, is associated with stress. When you stressed you will get sick , physically, emotionally and mentally.You have to stop this cycle.Banish-Negative-Thoughts-660x400
  5. BELIEVE YOU CAN AND YOU WILL Always believe in yourself because no-one else will. Be your best cheerleader when it comes to your dreams. Don’t let procrastination robe you of your destiny. you can do anything you put your mind to. You got it in you. Don’t allow any negative energy in your life to clatter your mind. Know that God is on your side and you can do and achieve anything.  Portrait of a confident black businesswoman at work in her

God is Providing an Open Door for You Today!!!

God is Providing an Open Door for You Today!!!

I don’t know what you’re going through or what you’re facing right now. Whatever Mountain you are facing, whatever Valley you are going through, whatever it is that is blinding you from seeing your destiny, whatever is blinding you from God’s power, God’s anointing or God’s presence, God Is providing an open door for you to walk through and receive that which you were destined to receive.

Many times you had to cried yourself to sleep you didn’t know what to do. Many times you have waited on an open door but the doors kept shutting in your face, and you are questioning God and asking him why?, where are you?.

God has heard your cries and questions and He is saying to you today that He has been preparing you and setting you apart to walk into your blessing and no man will ever close a door that God is getting ready to open for you right now.

God provided an open door for the children of Israel through the red sea. When God led the children of isreal straight out of slavery, away from the cruel hand of the Egyptians. He set them free. Free from oppression. Free from captivity. Free from bondage.

When Pharaoh let the people go, God didn’t lead them on the road that made most sense. The Bible tells us in Exodus 13, that though the path was shorter right through the Philistine country, God said, “If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.” Verse 17

So He led them around the desert road over towards the Red Sea. Hot, dry, barren wasteland. I can almost see the sea looming off in the distance. And hear the grumblings starting. Feel the fear rising. As the Israelites got closer that sea must have looked bigger and deeper. An obstacle that seemed too difficult to overcome. Their eyes focused on the problem. They forgot about the bigness of their God.

When we see obstacles, God sees opportunities. He will make a way where there seems to be no way out. The bigger the problem, the greater his ability to shine right through it all. “The Egyptians—all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots, horsemen and troops—pursued the Israelites and overtook them as they camped by the sea…” Ex. 14:9 Things were looking bleak and dark, yet God had a plan. And it was amazing.

He made a way for the Israelites and paved a way of delieverence through the red sea. What looked impossible before men was possible with God.
God is bigger than anything you are facing today and He already has a way out for you.

Yes I know that the Giants have been many, they have been trying to break you, I know you’ve had disappointments, I know you’ve had setbacks. The enemy has tried so many times to destroy you but he has failed and he will never succeed because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.

You have been created to break down and Destroy Giants just like the scripture says that God has given you authority to trample and scorpions and nothing has any power to harm or destroy you- Luke 10:19.

God is about to blow your mind with His goodness ,this season God is going to open doors for you that no man can shut, this season God is about to shut the tongues of your enemies that have been raising up against you.

This season God is going to promote you and elevate you from glory to glory, This season God is going to favour you and take you places you have never been before and bless you in the presence of your enemies. In this season God is going to fulfill the promises you have been waiting on for years.

God is providing an open door for you today! where it seems to be no way….
Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name- Revelation 3:8
