I Can’t Do It Without Him – Reflective Post

Filed under: Daily Motivational E-mails,Faith,My Life — thesuperwomenblog @ 3:34 pm

I’ve been in a very reflective place in my life for the past couple of months. And even more so in the past couple of weeks. Every article, blog or motivational e-mail has directed and aided me in this reflective state. Even down to my final assignment for class that I am currently working on is a Reflective Paper.  I know that when one reflects on life it can be a good thing but sometime reflecting can open up a lot of wounds and sores that you thought healed but has not. Causes you so shift away from the good in your life and crab a hold of the pain.

They say that most people lean on God when things are going bad but I have been the exact opposite. I have hidden away from him for I have felt ashamed for the things that I feel; those things that I should have left a lot of things where they have been in the past and moved on from it. But it seems that I am still attached in someway. With all this being said I read Joel & Victoria blog post this morning and it touched me in the heart in a way I can not explain. It reminded me that God is there and even more so when I need him. He is my peace during the storm and right now I am in a storm. So why not seek that peace. Allow him to still the waters.

We try to keep our life in order with schedules, our Blackberry and sticky notes but that means nothing when we are out of order on the inside. To be Super Women we need to be centered on the inside so that the outside won’t shake us or move us. So always remember to take the time and spend with him and talk to him. Learn to really give it all to him and read his word…his promises. Know what it is he really has in stored for you. So when those things come at us we can speak it.

Still Haven’t Chosen A Cause….Let This Inspire You

I received an e-mail with the link below about these guys that are walking from FL to NY in 60 days for Breast Cancer.  I know we may look at this and say well I don’t think I can do that but it is not about what we can’t do but what we can.

In speaking to some of my close friends that topic of  purpose has come up. Finding your purpose in life I am coming to see if a life long Journey that I think God never wanted us to know of gate but to experience. What can you do to make a difference? What gifts do you have that you can use to make a difference? I think find a cause and supporting it is a great way to find your Purpose in Life. So do it!

To find out more about these guys and how you can donate to their cause check out the link below.

Always be mindful of your day

Filed under: Daily Motivational E-mails,Faith,Mental Health,My Life,Self Awareness — thesuperwomenblog @ 4:09 pm

Mindfulness

Definition:

Mindfulness refers to being completely in touch with and aware of the present moment, as well as taking a non-evaluative and non-judgmental approach to your inner experience. For example, a mindful approach to one’s inner experience is simply viewing “thoughts as thoughts” as opposed to evaluating certain thoughts as positive or negative.

I find it easy lately to get caught up in my day to day responsibilities and the things that I have to do (need to do). These are the days that by the time I look at the time it is 11p and I wonderful where did my day do. I have some how forgotten to step back and take time to enjoy the day God has given me and to count al my blessings.

Below is an article of ways we came become mindful of our day. I ask that you don’t just read it but take it and and try some of the things that are mentioned. Life is too short, don’t just let your days pass you by anymore.

You want to see change in your life….Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Filed under: Faith,Family,Love,Mental Health,My Life — thesuperwomenblog @ 9:05 pm

 

I wanted to share with you the Wednesday Word from Jewel Diamond Taylor. I felt that word she shared today is very important. We live in a time where many things are uncertain. Yet there is one thing that is always certain and that is God love for us. God love for his children. A parent hates to see their children going through hard times. But being a parent myself now I understand how can I assure myself that my daughter gets it if I don’t allow her to go through the trials and tribulation that will test her. That will prove to her and to me that what I’ve taught her was not in vain. And in the same note I have to understand that at times she will fail the exam but ultimately she will pass the test. That is what God wants for us. But in order to do that we have to take his teachings and apply it to our lives. And we do that during our trials and tribulations. The trials and tribulations force us to move out of our comfort zone or to stay there and do nothing. That is not what he wants for us.

 

I can say for myself I have fallen back into my comfort zone and many times I feel like giving up, but I thank God for my friends and family. For those key people who know just the right thing to say to me.  They reminded me of how important it is to continue my daily walk with God. And that is something that I fell of track with. I recalled the difference in my life when I spoke to him daily. Not that the problems disappeared but my perspective changed. I was focused on my walk with him. I remember how wonderful that felt. And how I was able to see pass all the mess going on around me. I am fixing my eyes on him once again. And this Wednesday Word was just the reminder I needed that I can’t get comfortable. God doesn’t want me to get comfortable.

 

How can I set out to live a life that pleases him in every way when I can’t see pass myself and my own situation. Even though the comfort zone feels nice staying there too long can make you miss all the wonderful things God has in stored.

 

Thank you Jewel for this Wednesday Word. I prayer that it motivates and moves others as it did for me.

Date: Wednesday, May 26, 2010, 4:26 PM’Sometimes you may feel stuck between your pain and your promises because of fear,
procrastination, unable to see your worth and unable to see beyond your present
circumstances. The lies and confusion you saw as a child, in past relationships,
in school, past bad decisions and from the enemy can paralyze your ability to succeed
in life.
 
 

 

Growing out of a comfort zone or choosing to grow out of sin, addiction, drama,
confusion and bad entanglements can seem difficult, embarrassing, impossible, uncomfortable,
painful, awkward and uncertain.   Growth out of the familiar brings the pain that
births great change!
 
 

 

God wants to prove and move you to greater heights. God wants to stretch, confront,
change, and challenge you to go, be, do and have life more abundantly. It’s time
to press through any mess, shyness, insecurity, past rejections, wounded feelings,
denials, disappointments and false thinking.  Come out of your comfort zone. You
have dreams, possibilities, prosperity, blessings and so much of life to experience.
Accept the invitation today to grow out of your comfort zone.
Webster dictionary “grow” – to advance toward maturity, to flourish, develop, get
bigger. (listen to the song below by gospel artist Marvin Sapp “Comfort Zone).”

The Comfort Zone Poem (author unknown)
I used to have a comfort zone
where I knew I couldn’t fail,
The same four walls of busy work
were really more like a jail
I longed so much to do the things
I’d never done before,
But I stayed inside my comfort zone
and paced the same old floor
I said it didn’t matter
that I wasn’t doing much,
I said I didn’t care for things
like diamonds or furs and such
I claimed to be so busy
with the things inside my zone,
But deep inside I longed for
something special of my own
I couldn’t let my life go by
just watching others win,
I held my breath and stepped outside
to let the change begin
I took a step and with new strength
I’d never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone good bye
and closed and locked the door
If you are in a comfort zone
afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners
were at one time filled with doubt
A step or two and words of praise
can make your dreams come true
Greet your future with a smile,
success is there for you!

Sanity 4.8.10

Filed under: Faith,Health,Mental Health,Poetry — thesuperwomenblog @ 8:18 am

I wrote this poem when I was in a space of trying to figure out what my sister was going through. The person that has inspired me to join the fight for those who suffer with Mental Illness is one of my sisters. Currently she is working towards getting better but I often wondered on those days that she was not good at all what was going on in her head. I would watch her and how she moved and the things she said. It inspired the poem you will read below.

I encourage anyone that may have someone in their life suffering with a Mental Illness to not just act as if everything is okay or think that with just prayer everything will get better. See information…seek help.

Faith Without Works Is Dead

James 2:14-26 (New King James Version)

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your[a] works, and I will show you my faith by my[b] works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?[c] 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[d]And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.


I am but a small voice now
In a room full of voices
Some are shy
Some are playful
And many are mean
They talk with me
And rationalize with me
But yet I still feel small and insignificant
Others look at me strange
As if I am no longer am myself
But I am me
Can’t they hear me
I hope they can because sometimes I am not even sure I can I find myself doing and saying
These things that are not me
But the others say that is the only way I can be free
But I often question if that is so
Because days like today
I find myself being escorted by cops
Into the back of an ambulance
I am screaming now but no one can hear
I am still just this small voice
In a room full of voices
And now I am wondering when it will be just me
