My Master Life
Connecting You to What Matters Most
In a few months ago I wrote a blog entitled "From Running Scared to Standing Still". This month I would like to continue along those veins. You may "standing still" but how do you handle life when problems are still coming at you head strong. Let's consider our brother Job. He learned to trust God even when he didn't understand what or why his life was turned upside down. He also learned to accept what God allowed into his life. Trusting that God is sovereign and is a God that has a good plan for his life Job was able to be "steadfast". When I researched the word "steadfast" I found synonymous words that really hit home. For example, unwavering, uncompromising, without hesitation, unflinching and unswerving. Can you see power in the word "steadfast".
Hebrews 10:23 says, "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful." In other words, don't compromise, hesitate or flinch concerning your confession and hope in Christ.
Hebrews 3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end; The good news that you receive in the beginning helped to build your confidence in Christ don't allow anything or any person to make you swerve to the left or to the right keep going straight ahead.
By nature women are made to nurture. However, it doesn't mean you have to be everything to everybody. If you're feeling absorbed and on the brink of burnout give yourself permission to say no to any person or thing that can wait and even if it can't wait doesn't mean you're the only person to handle it. The truth is taking on to much responsibility without the help of others will leave you feeling disillusioned and completely worn out. It's your responsibility to protect your life from falling into this state of emergency. The Lord promises you rest from your labor. He promises you shelter from the storms of life and peace that surpasses all human understanding. When constant demands slowly that take over your life and prevent you from enjoying the things you love it's time to unplug and head to Jesus for he will give you rest for your weary soul. Blessings
The pressures you face in life can feel very overwhelming. As a matter of fact the word tribulation in the New Testament refers to pressure....like being crushed under a big rock. It's a clear indication of pain and strain that is unthinkable. You may be facing unemployment, or the threat of losing your home. There are pressures that comes from unexpected calamity or a child that is behaving ungodly. Maybe you're dealing with the pressures of a failing marriage or ministry. Any of these pressures can cause a lack of sleep, depression, or even a lost of appetite for food and living. In many instances throughout the scriptures the Lord encourages you by telling you "DO NOT BE AFRAID" but to the rational mind this simply does not make sense. How is it possible to NOT BE AFRAID if you're under such pressure? Here's where you bridge the gap of your understanding. Jesus stands as a buffer between you and your pressure. It doesn't mean you will not feel the pressure nor does it mean the pressure will disappear but what it does mean is that GOD IS WITH YOU. Jesus stands at the door of your heart and says, "I understand the pressure you are under. I understand the pain. I know about your bills, your cheating spouse, or your child that is going astray. DO NOT ALLOW your heart to be troubled and DO NOT ALLOW your heart to be afraid. You must get control of your mind and thoughts and bring them under subjection to the WORD of GOD. DO NOT ALLOW means that you have full power and authority over your situation. Instead of RUNNING SCARED be transformed by the renewing of your mind and start STANDING STILL. Through Christ you will be able to WITHSTAND the pressures that come to make you cave and give up. Remember you will be able handle the pressure, and the pain, as you gain power through Christ.
Begin your day with LOVE...by beginning your day with GOD! There are times in life that despite being surrounded by people you may be suffering from the lack of loving you. As a woman you may have the tendency to put everything and everyone ahead of your own needs. The bible never teaches this. It's time to begin Mastering the Meaning of Your Life www.masterlife123.weebly.com Yes, there are scriptures that encourage you to prefer others above yourself but it NEVER encourages you to not love yourself first. The Master teaches you to love God with your whole heart, soul, and strength and to love your neighbor AS you LOVE yourself.

God has given you His Word & His Spirit to turn your life from chaos to order, so begin with observing and acknowledging time for God and yourself. Blessings

I remember as a kid growing up in southeast Georgia there were many many dirt roads. If it rained and the roads got really soaked it seemed like a days journey just to get to my grandmother’s house. The reason it seemed like days is because once we drove on one of those wet soggy roads we would often get stuck in the mud. The wonderful thing about our neighborhood was when anyone got stuck the neighbors would come off of their porches, take off their shoes, roll up their pant legs and get behind the vehicle and push until the vehicle was free to move forward. It’s the same way with coaching…I help people get unstuck. Maybe you’re trying to change your work habits, or even your health, maybe you’re trying to manage your time or simply get motivated. Finally! A Way to Get the Results You Need to Improve Your Life. If you’re one of those people that have read books, or gotten advice and nothing seems to help. You need someone from the outside to look at your situation objectively to help you get unstuck. I can help you so that you can be on your way to reaching your goals in life.
I remember a time in my life that was dark and lonely. I didn't realize how disconnected I was from living a meaningful life. I had problems finding people that I could relate to. I didn't know what was wrong with my life so I suffered from low self esteem and confusion. It even affected me to the point of isolation. I would stay to myself and hide behind my computer screen privately even though I would pretend publicly. The good news is there is hope! I've traveled this path to a life of wholeness and I'm here to help support, share information and guidance. Connect with me and I will support you on your journey to reconnect.
