#CupcakesForDinner | GirlTalk on Living your Best​ Life

“Living the new life’ Are you living your new life? I know we all have been in situations and had lifestyles that needed change. I would like to share, help, encourage and inspire someone to live their new life that is waiting for you. Before you live your new life you have to acknowledge the desires you want to give up from your old life that will help you move on to a better and brighter future. Everything must be new starting with the renewing of our minds the bible says, “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” Romans 12:2 have you heard the mind can be your biggest battlefield this is where we hold our thoughts, knowledgeable information, intelligence, and most of all our memory.

Having thoughts of the past can cause struggles and difficulties that may block you from living the new life that is waiting for you if you don’t know how to renew your mind how can you escape these bad thoughts. I suggest talking to a friend or someone close that can help you understand why you haven’t been able to move forward and enjoy a new life. When your life is still part of the world it’s going to be harder for you to get delivered and you may feel like your prayers are not being answered. We look for results when we take matters into our own hands the bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding” Proverbs 3:5, if you don’t you, ’ll keep saying to yourself you don’t understand.

“Balancing your life” Are you serious about this new life you want to live and keep. Do you have anyone that can keep you on track? Some of us learn best from each other and can be very hands-on when it comes to experience. Accountability partners are always great to keep around and can give you that help and hand in time of need. The bible says, “Therefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also you do” 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Someone you know may be weak where they stand and need a wise word of encouragement to help them move on and not to give up but to have hope and live the life they deserve. If you stopped what you’re doing right now to write down your progress how much of the paper will you use. I challenge you to keep a record of your progress whether it’s a journal, blog, iPhone, or however you keep notes. You may be able to reach out to someone and tell them how they have helped with your progress and was great encouragement with your walk with Christ never let good work go unnoticed.

Regardless of your age, the rest of your life can be the best of your life, and you can start living your new life on purpose. Let’s help others do the same and be a blessing in someone’s life. A role model or mentor can change lives only if we gave a helping hand to those in need of love. When we do it for the glory of God we don’t seek anything in return. Pass what you know onto others and always be willing to share the good news.

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 

I Trusted God And Kept My Focus On The Work In Front Of Me

Dream Again With Isaiah Austin 

Being brought a bad report and still have the hope to Dream Again. Joseph was someone who was loved deeply by everyone. Have you been loved so much the people around you started hating? “Some people only hate you because of the way other people love you” Yes Joseph can relate and sometimes it’s not just by your friends and enemies, in this case, it is His own family. Listen to Joseph’s message.

Genesis 37:5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. 6 He said to them, Listen to this dream I had: This is where we tend to mess up at by telling our dreams to those who don’t have us in their best interest at heart. Which give them all the reasons to hate even more? Our positions in life will make those around us feel inferior to our dreams without a doubt and will not want to serve alongside us due to jealousy, so keep that in mind.

No matter how much you want to look out for people stay away from Dream Killers. Before you allow anyone to strip you for all you got rescue yourself, and be delivered from the hands of your enemies.

It’s ok to be torn to pieces the best part is to pick yourself back up and Dream Again. it is tough being comforted at such a time we often refuse comfort when things are not going our way and that’s the end of that, because you don’t want to hear what anyone have to say, so you sit and dwell on a million assumptions, but God is saying don’t worry I got this. God knows the plans he has for our lives plans to prosper us and to give us hope and a future. God plans are better than we can imagine. Never be uncertain about your dreams.

“I did what Joseph from the Bible would’ve done: I trusted God and kept my focus on the work in front of me. I had left it in God’s hands, which meant I had trusted that He would take care of me. I kept my faith and worked through much adversity to get to this moment” Isaiah Austin, Pro basketball player Isaiah Austin Foundation

How Do You Hear The Voice of God

Can You Hear Me

There are many ways to hear the voice of God and there is no wrong or right way your way is your way. When I hear the voice of God it can be silent in a quiet place or I can hear the voice of God through people. When I put my full focus on hearing from God. God may send someone in my path to speak his word which can be a stranger who may have a message for me directly from God himself. I also think of places that are peaceful and relaxing like beaches or a nice quiet yard laid out in the grass. The bible say Psalm 29:3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. Whenever I’m near water I try to listen out for God. Who would have known I can sit on the beach, lake, pool, or even bathtub and hear the voice of God. You can hear from God through prayer, worship, and just seeking his presence. Isaiah 24:15 Therefore in the east give glory to the LORD; exalt the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea.

Your relationship with God is so important especially when you wanna hear from The Lord himself. Knowing the difference and being able to identify what is God’s voice and what is not God’s voice paying close attention to his word. How can you hear from God if you’re not listening? Some may say I haven’t heard from God and it’s as simple as listening and keeping a spiritual ear out for the signs of God. Move out the way and allow God to be God without your help let him be that void in your life and everything you’re missing. Prayer is your most valuable way to keep that connection and God will make his voice known to you. We know God is a God who cannot lie and we can go to the father and ask him for anything his word will not turn back unto him void. Psalm 17:6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.

A Fight Worth Having

Any relationship worth having is worth fighting for

Equip yourself with several scriptures or 10 to speak into your situation or write your sentence and add a scripture to it so the words apply directly to your situation.

Pray about your situation and add scripture to speak the word of God for a fight worth having.

1. 1 John 2:26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray.

2. Hebrews 12:11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

3. Hebrews 13:3 Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

4. Hebrews 13:16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

5. Numbers 6:25 the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;

6. Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

7. Mark 7:20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”

8. Ephesians 2:14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,

9. Philippians 1:25 Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith,

10. Numbers 12:13 So Moses cried out to the Lord, “Please, God, heal her!”

Dear God I pray you watch over me and the many readers I may have seeking you and your word. I pray you speak into our situations and circumstances only you father who can & will deliver us from our enemies I pray for your righteousness and peace over our lives I pray that you never leave us nor forsake us during a time of distress and suffering. I pray you accept the sacrifices we offer from the heart the sacrifices we are willing to give you for your glory father I pray to do all things pleasing to your sight so we may seek your face with joy. As I repent before you father for any sins and all sins thank you for sending your only begotten son to save us and the world father I pray for Israel. I pray to never be defiled and walk with envy I pray nothing can divide me from you or my loved ones nothing will separate me from your word as much as the enemy tries father I thank you for your faithfulness, loving kind mercies. In Jesus name please heal me and your people I love you father forever and ever AMEN.
