Your Seventh Day of Chirstmas Gift| Showers’ Blessing Inspires

Decorative Christmas background with snowflakes and stars

 

The “True Love” mentioned in the song doesn’t refer to an earthly suitor, but it refers to God Himself. The “me” who receives the presents refers to every believer. The seven swans-a-swimming represent the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: prophecy, ministry, teaching, exhortation, giving, leading, and compassion. The evidence of the Spirit’s presence is given to each person for the common good of everyone. The Spirit gives one person the ability to speak with wisdom. The same Spirit gives another person the ability to speak with knowledge. To another person the same Spirit gives {courageous} faith. To another person the same Spirit gives the ability to heal. Another can work miracles. Another can speak what God has revealed. Another can tell the difference between spirits. Another can speak in different kinds of languages. Another can interpret languages. There is only one Spirit who does all these things by giving what God wants to give to each person. 1 Cor 12:7-11 (GW) God in his kindness gave each of us different gifts. If your gift is speaking God’s word, make sure what you say agrees with the Christian faith. If your gift is serving, then devote yourself to serving. If it is teaching, devote yourself to teaching. If it is encouraging others, devote yourself to giving encouragement. If it is sharing, be generous. If it is leadership, lead enthusiastically. If it is helping people in need, help them cheerfully. Romans 12:6-8 (GW)

I do hope that you enjoy this gift of love on the seventh day of Christmas. It is my desire that these words of encouragement will propel you further down your path of success.

Purpose in the Crosses

  1. Your purpose comes from God. No one knows your purpose but God, because He is the one that created you.
  2. Seek and ask God what is your purpose. He is the purpose giver and the purpose revealer. Sometimes God is trying to tell us our purpose, but we are too afraid to hear, not to mention to walk in it.
  3. Your purpose has nothing to do with fame and fortune, but it has all to do with your obedience to God as you pursue it with passion and fervency.
  4. Your purposeful assignment is beyond you. Your purpose is always in a particular geographic location, or locations; and it is always connected to people. God didn’t create us to be alone. It is living out loving your neighbor in serving them with your gifts and talents.
  5. Your purpose is revealed to you early in life. Every talent and gift that God has given you is entrenched in your purpose. At some point when you were young, God revealed it to you. If you ask Him, He will take you back to the place of the first mention of your purpose.
  6. Your purpose has nothing to do with whether or not you can finance it or not. It is who God has created you to be. When you begin to walk in your purpose, God will do what is necessary in propelling you to achieve it.
  7. Your purpose outlives you. The legacy that we leave has more to do with making this world a better place. God instructed us to subdue, replenish, increase and take dominion. Everyone of our purpose should expand the Kingdom agenda in sharing the love of God as we live out the greatest two commandments—to love God with all our hearts, minds and souls and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

This is your 7th gift of the 12 days of Christmas.

Enjoy Your Gift!

You’ve Been Infected | Showers’ Blessing Inspires

golden 2016 new year greeting

Greetings,

One of my favorite childhood movies is Pollyanna. What intrigued me most about Pollyanna was her infectious optimism for life. She was able to infect an entire community and transform their attitudes in spreading a message of optimism and forward thinking. Now that is a great virus to catch and pass along!

What better way to kick the New Year off than to make a commitment that no matter what happens in 2016, you will always look on the bright side of the situation. Can you imagine how many lives would be positively touched if all of us decided to provide hope in what many perceive to be a hopeless situation.

Every day we’re inundated with one dismal report after another, which can evoke fear and paranoia. Fear paralyzes and prevents you from functioning with unbridled optimism that stops you from moving forward. This is a time to relinquish the haunts of the past and to move confidently forward towards those things that will catapult you to experience success.

As of 11:59 p.m., on December 31st, the year of 2015 begins its descent as a distant memory. All that can be done has already been done. It’s left behind with its milestones of memories for reflection at a later time. Once midnight ushers in 2016, new opportunities loom on the horizon. Yes, the nuances of this year will pass from 2015 to 2016. How you allow them to affect your mindset does not have to cross over into the New Year.

Operating in the peace and joy of God is what is going to get you through and allow you to maintain a healthy attitude for success. God has prepared us to face the vicissitudes of life with an optimism rooted in His Word. On every page of the Book of Life it insures us that we have a right to an abundant, prosperous, peaceful, joyful life and to experience success in everything we do.

I’m infecting others with the life-giving virus of optimism so they can move forward and overcome barriers that have prevented them from accomplishing everything they endeavor to achieve. Imagine if each of us make that same commitment how many negative forces can we put to flight, not just in our own lives and family but our society as well.

You’re infected! Infect someone else! Don’t let anything stop you from optimistically moving forward in 2016.

Have a blessed, prosperous and optimistically successful New Year!

Happy New Year!

PRAYER FOR SUCCESS Dec 31

prayer for success showersFather, This is the final day of the year. I can’t get 2015 back, but I can embrace 2016 with fervency and passion to make it a stupendous success.

Everything I endeavor to do, I will more than succeed because You are with me every step of the way making each day prosperous as I optimistically move forward throughout the new year. Amen. #showersblessing #prayersforsuccess

Your Sixth Day of Chirstmas Gift| Showers’ Blessing Inspires

The “True Love” mentioned in the song doesn’t refer to an earthly suitor, but it refers to God Himself. The “me” who receives the presents refers to every believer. The six geese-a-laying represent the six days of creation that confesses God as Creator and Sustainer of the world (Genesis 1). In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Gen 1:1-3 (KJV)

I do hope that you enjoy this gift of love on the sixth day of Christmas. It is my desire that these words of encouragement will propel you further down your path of success.

Creative Power of Words

You create your world. Not just for today but for tomorrow as well. If we take our lessons from the Master Creator, Almighty God, we will never go wrong.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. How did this creation take place, through words. God spoke it and it came into existence. There is power in the creative forcefulness of our words. There is life and death in the power of the tongue.

The great civil rights leader Martin Luther King said, “My personal trials have taught me the value of unmerited suffering. As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways that I could respond to my situation: either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force.”

Positive creativity transforms worlds and lives. Positive creativity is not afraid to look at life as it is, envision how it can be and set out to create a new world.

Each of us has a responsibility that when we take our final breath to have made a positive contribution to making this world a better place. That can only come when we tap into the creative energy of our Creator, the Almighty God, in accomplishing the task He has set before us regardless of how impossible it may appear.

God has placed skills and talents in each of us. It is up to us to take those skills and talents and use them for the betterment of our families, churches, schools, communities, societies and ourselves.

No one can destroy you, but you. No one can create you, but you. God took his words and put them in your mouth and gave us the power to speak into existence those things that be not as though they are. In essence, He provided us the ability to speak so the invisible can become visible.

Follow the exemplary example of your heavenly Father and say, “I’ll create me a world.” God empowered you to create a better world when He blessed you with the creative gift of words.

  1. Listen to the words you speak. If you speak more negative words than positive words, make a conscious decision to transform your speaking habits. Become conscious of only speaking words of life and not words of death.
  2. Complement your positive aspirations with the life-transforming power of God’s Word. As you speak each affirmation you double its creative power by coupling it with God’s Word.
  3. Create an environment to speak only creative words by putting positive affirmations throughout your house. Don’t just walk by them, but speak them until they become a part of your very existence.
  4. Include positive aspirations in your cell phone to keep you motivated throughout the day. Remember to complement them with a scripture. Throughout the day meditate on them and watch how prosperous your life becomes.
  5. Be careful of every idle word you speak. Refrain from saying things like, “I’m so stupid. I can’t learn that. You make me sick.” It may seem as though you are just merely saying words, but words have power. Transform your thoughts. You transform your heart. You transform your words. Out of the heart the mouth speaks.
  6. Always remember that life and death are in the power of the tongue. Allow your words to be a life-generating force that creates a world you never thought imaginable and for others as well.

This is your 6th gift of the 12 days of Christmas.

Enjoy Your Gift!

Your Fifth Day of Chirstmas Gift| Showers’ Blessing Inspires

The “True Love” mentioned in the song doesn’t refer to an earthly suitor, but it refers to God Himself. The “me” who receives the presents refers to every believer. The first Five Books of the Old Testament, known as the Torah or the Pentateuch: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, which gives the history of humanity’s sinful failure and God’s response of grace in the creation of a people to be a light to the world. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matt 5:14-16 (KJV)

I do hope that you enjoy this gift of love on the fifth day of Christmas. It is my desire that these words of encouragement will propel you further down your path of success.

Made by God

We are the love-lights that have been sent into the world to brightly illuminate in the marketplace every single day. Most notably, we are being sent into our respective workplaces to be those shining lights drawing people to God. A light gives off warmth. It is not dull, but brings illumination of the liberating power of God’s Word.

As those love-lights every dark place we enter into the atmosphere is transformed. It is not about being a Bible-thumping zealot, but it is to exhibit compassionate love to all that comes into our sphere of influence. In the 21st century, we have to be even more vigilant in spreading love and good cheer in our respective workplaces. People need the Word and they want it, even though sometimes they act as though they don’t.

Those five golden rings of the Pentatuch begins with Genesis where God creating man in His image and breathed the breath of life in him. God went even further to instruct humankind to subdue, replenish, increase and take dominion of the earth. Even though man faltered in the process, God had already created a plan to reconnect man back to Him.

In these five books, God outlines in meticulous details every blessing for us to increase in wisdom, understanding, counsel, might and knowledge as we give reverence to Him and lead by the Holy Spirit. There is nothing that God would not do for us and would not give us. He has placed so much greatness inside of each of us to become everything He envisioned so we could experience what God saw—spiritual, abundance, wholeness and wealth.

Every day God expects us to tap into the well-spring of skills and talents that He has placed inside of each us. Moving forward on the path to success these are five golden nuggets I’d like to share with you:

  1. Obey God’s commandments. When you obey God’s commandments there are always corresponding blessings chocked-full of opportunities that manifests in your life.
  2. Believe in the veracity of God’s Word and use it every day to transform your mindset to overcome a life of limitation and embrace an abundant life of prosperity.
  3. Establish a life of prayer and fasting. There is no other way to become more in tuned to what God has for your life. These two disciplines, when coupled together, enable you to overcome negative strongholds and habits that have prevented you from experiencing success.
  4. Don’t just be a hearer of God’s Word, but be a doer as well. Your success is sealed when you augment God’s Word with your corresponding actions. You have to do more than just repeat it, but you have to live it out every day.
  5. Without faith you cannot please God. You should be increasing in faith every day. The only way you can do that is through studying his Word, praying and fasting as part of your daily and weekly regimen.

This is your 4th gift of the 12 days of Christmas.

Enjoy Your Gift!

PRAYER FOR SUCCESS Dec 29

prayer for success showersFather, I am not going to worry about what I didn’t do in this year; that is water under the bridge. I will place all my energies in anticipation and preparation of the great things that await me in the ensuing year. There is no good thing that You will withhold from me as I walk upright with You. Everything that I do will prosper and I will experience extraordinary success. Amen. #showersblessing #prayersforsuccess

Your Fourth Day of Chirstmas Gift| Showers’ Blessing Inspires

The “True Love” mentioned in the song doesn’t refer to an earthly suitor, but to God Himself. The “me” who receives the presents refers to every believer—that includes you. The four calling birds represents the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, which proclaim the Good News of God’s reconciliation of the world to Himself in Jesus Christ. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 2 Cor 5:18-19 (KJV)

I do hope that you enjoy this gift of love on the fourth day of Christmas. It is my desire that these words of encouragement will propel you further down your path of success.

No Charge

The priceless gift of God’s love when He gave His Son so we could experience life to its fullest and have eternal life is priceless—it is unquantifiable. I believe with all my heart that God wants us to use every talent and gift He placed in each of us to make this world a better place. Jesus stated that He came that we would have life and have it more abundantly. I do believe with all my heart we must tap into the well-spring of talents and gifts that God has given us to succeed.

The four gospels echo of the unending love God bestows on us every single day. It began with His Son’s birth and culminates in His resurrection. It cries of His faith in His Son and His faith in our believing in the liberating possibilities His Son has given from the manger to the cross.

You don’t want to squander the priceless gift of your future. Regardless of who you are or your perceived plight, there is so much greatness inside of you to be unleashed.

Don’t allow the temporal forces of this world to prevent you from moving forward. All you have to do is tap into the wellspring of greatness inside of you and experience the fullness of life God envisioned. He wants you to have a spiritually abundant whole and wealthy life every single day. The beauty is that there is nothing in this world to stop you. Nothing can prevent you from experiencing this gift of love that continues to give even beyond your last breath.

“What does all this cost?” No Charge!

This is your gift 4 of the 12 days of Christmas.

Enjoy Your Gift!

Your Third Day of Chirstmas Gift| Showers’ Blessing Inspires

 

The “True Love” mentioned in the song doesn’t refer to an earthly suitor, but it refers to God Himself. The “me” who receives the presents refers to every baptized person. The three french hens symbolizes the three Theological Virtues: 1) Faith, 2) Hope, and 3) Love. But now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13 (ASV)

I do hope that you enjoy this gift of love on the third day of Christmas. It is my desire that these words of encouragement will propel you further down your path of success.

Faith, Hope & Love

Faith enables you to believe in the exceedingness of who God is and in the veracity of His Word. When you can believe, then you will be able to achieve everything God envisioned for you. Faith makes you pleasing in the sight of God. Faith enables you to know that you can have whatever you say. Without faith, you can’t possibly please God. Faith is rooted in love. Perfect love always cast out fear. When fear is cast out, there is nothing to stop you from achieving and experiencing all God envisioned. Build your faith and you will always experience the hope of God’s glory.

Your hope is what builds up your faith. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the substance of hope is your trials and tribulations that gives you patience, patience builds your character in making you strong and strengthening your faith to endure life’s hardships. With every experience it increases your ability to keep hoping in the promises of God. You become persuaded that this hope, that may appear to be rooted in adversity, is actually building your character and prepares you to be more than a conqueror because of God’s love. It will never make you ashamed because of the love God pours inside of you through His Holy Spirit each and every day.

Every day God infuses you with His love. Really it is His love, inherent in His Holy Spirit, that propels you to succeed. Love is the strongest force that exists because God is love. Every assignment you are given is rooted in God’s love—especially the greatest two commandments to love God with all your heart, mind and soul and to love your neighbor as you love yourself. When you love God you’re able to embrace the assignment with passion and overcome the limitations of this world that tries to prevent you from succeeding. This same love spills over into the passion that drives you to serve those that you are assigned to with a spirit of excellence, compassion and love. Whatever you need to succeed, God has already lovingly poured it inside of you and equipped you for humongous success.

This is day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas. My gift of encouragement to you. Enjoy the gift.

Please note we had some technical difficulty in getting this gift to you on Day 3. We wanted you to receive the gift.

Enjoy Your Gift!
