#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

The vibes you bring to Digital Platforms

Hello to my online followers, viewers, audience, and today’s readers I welcome you to this post it will be interesting. I’m being myself the official authentic me. Glad you could make it.

Before I start I have a question. How often do you advance with this new technology? I asked because I want to know the ways you interact with your followers. How do you communicate, relate, and love?

I’m not even going to act like I didn’t want every iPhone that came out. Once I got some sense I thought about the connections I was making and it had me thinking hmmm. lightbulb! is it about my smartphone or is it about the relationship. I can have the same relationship with someone whether I’m using an iPad or a flip phone. Yes or Nah?  I make this point because I wanted you to see the value in communication. Who cares what we use when we communicate what matter is our intention for communication.“The mouth speaks what the heart is full of”

Before I post any tweets or Facebook status I ask myself. What do my words reveal about my heart? I never want to come off as jealous or hating. Without realizing I myself and others keep things going in circulation via social media and what they call (memes) not knowing the reason, because when you don’t make a point and don’t have a message what you share represent you. Remember it’s your way of communication I ask are your facts truth? How important was that post to you? Did you reach out and help somebody or did you hurt them? maybe you are just a jokester being funny.

Nowadays we use our platforms for the spotlight instead of its first purpose which was a conversation and staying connected. Oh, what are you too good to hold a conversation? You don’t know me. Well Duh! Be real with yourself are you using your digital space to stay connected with those who don’t communicate with you face-to-face in person.

A call to action. The answer can be to yourself or to the ones that are closely connected to you. What do you believe it takes to maintain a positive digital space, and have a valid communication line? Is having a smartphone and a social media account the way to you? I don’t expect you to be that selfish, and yes I’m talking about with your communication.

The next time someone reaches out to you via social media think about your vibes and how you want to rub off on them.

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 

Don’t Paralyze Your Dreams

Calm your worries. What is your worry condition? Are you troubled by your anxieties and suffering from your disturbing thoughts. Don’t torment yourself any longer today is a day all by itself. Matthew 6:34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today” We fight against so many thoughts whether we are worried about our home, family, finances, relationships, and multiple circumstances we can think of.

I started to keep a record of my worries by writing my worries in a journal and reflect on what it is I’m most worried about, so I know what I’m up against and have a clear understanding of what I’m praying for. Philippians 4:6 “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done” We tend to worry no one cares for us, so in result to that we are in our feelings most of the time about “worry” no one loves me, no one calls me, no one has shown appreciation, and the list goes on. 1 Peter 5:7 ”Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” I care about you as well I care enough to help you and get a whole of our worries.

Let’s go in-depth with our worries they can be small or big, a small worry increased to something big, or a big worry now lets decrease it to something small. Ask yourself this Luke 12:25 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? No, but it can surely take away from your life. Worry is a thief itself John 10:10 “Purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life” Do you believe in giving your worries to God? How can God take care of your worries if you are not giving them to him? Do you not trust in the Lord your God. John 14:1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me”

“Worry is like a weed it pops up as a baby sprout at first, but if you don’t cut it off immediately it grows into paralyzing fear and chokes your potential and dreams” Baydian Style Blogger Tamara Holder
