#CupcakesForDinner | GirlTalk on What Gets Your Attention?

I want to help you determine what gets your attention. Before you took interest in reading this blog identify what got your attention was it the title? What was it? Have you stopped to think about what is it you need to turn your focus on? I myself could probably turn my focus from what others think about me and focus on what TMH “God” thinks about me the Bible says, ”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 remember he said “For I Know” and not “They Know”

Are you able to identify your distractions how quick are you to refocus? Blocking out your surroundings such as noise, a ringing cell phone, or even someone yelling outside your window. When we stop and give these things attention not only have we lost our focus, but we may seem to have a concentration problem finding ourselves dealing with more than one thing at a time. How likely is it for you to multi-task your focus? can you fold the laundry, flick through the news, and talk on the phone.

What do you want to focus on this year that will grow? Over the past few weeks did you make any changes in any areas of your life. Have any of these changes required your full attention without any distractions. I want this to help you with sustainable change and improve your focus. For example. Are you trying to read this during the noisy part of your day or have you decided to focus on a more peaceful surrounding area?

Here are a couple of questions you can ask yourself to help understand where your focus has been going.

  1. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being absolutely no stress, and 10 is chronic stress. What is the current stress level in your life and why?
  2. Based on your experience how much does stress affect your ability to focus?

Who is it? Is it the sexy man who sits next to you or is your crush at the gym able to distract you? How many can agree that our time is important to us? Without a doubt clarifying what matters the most and calculating our time and dividing it where it goes or has gone. Have you stop to think your main focus gets most of your time. Ask yourself what are you focused on?

I encourage everyone to remain focus and do not become disappointed dreamers. I want you to discover your superiority of God’s plan. Prayer Prayer Pray “Hear my prayer O Lord give ear to my supplications in thy faithfulness answer me and in thy righteousness” Psalm 143:1 The only way to disappoint yourself is by losing focus of the character you are building “Without counsel purposes are disappointed, but in the multitude of counsellors they are established” Proverbs 15:22

5 Ways to be more Confident

Here is the confidence boost that you are looking for. Stop needing people to tell you things in order to feel confident. Yup, that was it.

Be confident in who you are I’m learning this as well and not so much for my looks and beauty but knowing who I am and what I do or have done. You might not get to enjoy the fruits with the person you inspired, motivated, encouraged, or whatever you done for this person knowing you played a part and being able to have the confidence that it was you who pushed them to that next level or inspired their next idea. Walk with your head held high without asking for any handouts.

1. Stop comparing. Stay focused on you.

2. Relax and go with the flow. Don’t stress the little things.

3. Love yourself. You are a gift and nothing would be the same if you didn’t exist.

4. Be positive and look for the good in every situation.

5. Do what you love. Life is too short to waste your time doing anything otherwise.

Hope this will help you be more confident in who you are. In the comments below let me know of any other ways to be more confident.

A Challenge to Demonstrate Power

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in word based on talk, but in power

The Power Gifts

  • Miracles
  • Healing
  • Faith

The bible said the kingdom of God in not what you speak or how you speak it no matter what you preach on whether its something intelligent, smart, and fame, but do it in power. I’m calling you to preach in power whether you on social media or in the pulpit. You can have a good word, but what good is your words with no power. God want me, you, us, and whoever to operate in POWER.

With the power and authority I’m seeking I’m gonna have to call myself to a fast I pray my faith believe and stand in agreement. Whatever your reason is for fasting whether the circumstance is ugly, but the benefits is rewarding and exciting. Do it anyway.

DO YOU BELIEVE YOUR FAITH GIVES YOU POWER AND AUTHORITY?

Matthew 17:18 KJV And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?

20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

That type of faith that can cast out unclean spirits. Don’t that excite you to know the level of authority we seek is according to the level of our faith? I want you to see it like this. Because of your level of faith because you didn’t believe it. Use your beliefs not an actual mustard seed. Some believers don’t know what it mean to have mustard seed faith and if he saying the disciples didn’t even have that. Who are you fooling? Go that extra mile even when you know you have that moving mountain faith that casting out unclean spirits faith.

One last thing some of us know our credit score. What if we knew our FAITH score? Would you need to build up your Faith?

When You Are Convinced That You Belong

Joseph Interprets A Dream

Believe in your Dreams and be clear on what they are. Don’t let nobody tell you what you can’t do. For instance, Isaiah knew what His Dreams were to the point He would visualize every part of them from the time He was five years old living in CA Dreaming of playing in the NBA. Walk in the shoes of your Dreams play out the details clearly and let your vision drive you where you want to be.

Genesis 40:4 “The captain of the guard assigned two men to Joseph, and he attended them”

Have you ever stopped to think God assigned someone to you? You’ll know when someone is assigned to you God will make you aware of that and if not pray for discernment, because there are some people who are ATTACHED to you while others are actually ASSIGNED to you. Know the difference!

8 “We both had Dreams,” they answered, “but there is no one to interpret them.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your Dreams.” Joseph told them their Dreams and the representation as He predicted and instructed the men to mention Him to Pharaoh.

The men forgot all about Joseph and never mentioned Him to Pharaoh. Some of us can relate to this situation in a way we help out others and put them on to bigger and better things, and as soon as they get on top they forget all about you. Does anyone have the answer to that? Like hello did you not help them with their Dreams.

Lesson: When you’re powerless over a situation, commit to God and live a life that is faithful to His plan.

“You can’t make your Dreams a reality until you learn to believe in yourself until you find that moment when you are convinced that you belong” Isaiah Austin, Pro basketball player Isaiah Austin Foundation 

 

I Stayed Positive And Kept Hanging On To My Vision

Joseph Challenge To Dream Again 

God want his children to prosper and everything we touch shall prosper. Speak prosperity over your life.

Genesis 39:2 The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of Po-ti-phar. 3 When Potiphar saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did.

Ask yourself is the Lord with you? Are you succeeding in everything that you do?

Genesis 39:6 “So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate” Joseph needs to stay healthy and in good shape.

Now Joseph was well-built and handsome, who else do we know that’s well built and handsome? Of course Isaiah Austin. The ladies will lust after a good looking man and demand overnight stay. It takes serious discipline to brush a lot off your shoulders, and stay focused on your Dreams. We all know the humiliation some women bring when they are turned down and rejected. Guard your reputation and stay away from lies and slander.

No matter your circumstances you are still blessed by the Lord. God made you a success. Following Joseph’s example and being faithful to God is more than enough. It’s a tough battle to fight against temptation you have the power and don’t let no one take that from you. Do not be discouraged and let nothing stop you finish your race. You have a purpose don’t think you’re suffering there’s a great reward waiting for you. Future success.

“It’s my vision the way I see, I am also talking about something much bigger. I strive to have a life vision. It’s all about how well you can visualize your Dreams. A big part of my story is about Dreams and what it takes to make them come true. I stayed positive and kept hanging on to my vision” Isaiah Austin, Pro basketball player Isaiah Austin Foundation
