I'm blown away by this amazing #quote by Tony Robbins.
All personal breakthroughs begin
with a change in beliefs.
Tony Robbins

Science has now proven that your thoughts actually do have power to make changes in both your physical body and in every part of your world. Yes, this is a pretty bold statement, but it is true. What you think matters. All the sages from throughout time knew this to be true. Buddha stated that you are what you think. Jesus also talked about the importance of belief. It is a fact that what you believe affects your life.

Knowing this, if you want to change your life, you must start by changing your thoughts. Your thoughts can actually change your body chemistry and either put you on the path of good healthy or keep you unhealthy and lethargic. Your thoughts are the precursor to your actions. Therefore, if you want to change how you live, how you feel, or anything else in your life, you have to begin with a change in how you think and what you believe.

If you want a personal breakthrough in any part of your life, start by assessing your thoughts and changing what needs to be changed. This is not a magic spell that will mystically change your life overnight. It takes persistence and patience, but it will happen if you don’t give up. Just remember, your thoughts and actions did not get you where you are today overnight. And they will not change things overnight. But they will immediately put you on the right path. And the right path will take you where you want to go, IF you stay on it until you get to your destination. Bohdi Sanders ~ author of the award-winning bestseller, Modern Bushido: Living a Life of Excellence.

Amazing passage from pastor Rick.
Even though you are temporarily harassed by all kinds of trials …. This is no accident β€” it happens to prove your faith, which is infinitely more valuable than gold.” (1 Peter 1:6-7 Phillips)
Life is not a series of random, freak accidents. Life is not totally unplanned. Life is not without meaning. God knows what’s going on. He’s weaving the tapestry of your life, and it has light and dark threads β€” happy and sad times β€” to give richness and texture and color to your life. Nothing can come into the life of a child of God without God’s permission. Everything is Father‑filtered.
Don’t misunderstand. I am not saying that everything that happens to you in life is God’s perfect will. That’s just not true. There are a lot of things that are not God’s will. If you go out and sin, that’s not God’s will. If somebody sins against you, that’s not God’s perfect will.
But God does have a permissive will. If I go out and I overeat, I pay the consequences. If I go out and wreck my body, I pay the consequences. God does not cause evil and God does not cause suffering. But he does allow them because they have a purpose. God permits them, and then he uses them.
God is an expert at bringing good out of bad. He could have kept Paul out of prison in Philippi, but instead he let Paul go to prison, and the jailer became a believer as a result. God could have kept Jesus from the cross, but he let him go. He let his own Son suffer and die. Did he bring any good out of that? I’d say he did!
God loves to turn crucifixions into resurrections. The things you wish were most removed from your life are often the very things that God is using to shape you and make you into the believer he wants you to be. He wants to use that problem for good in your life. There’s something more important than your pain. It’s what you’re learning from that pain. God is in control.
β€œThat is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever πŸ˜‡

I just read this amazing passage online, truly got me thinking. I think we all can relate to this.
β€œThis small and temporary trouble we suffer will bring us a tremendous and eternal glory, much greater than the trouble” (2 Corinthians 4:17
#amen
God purpose is greater than your problem and your pain.
When we faced life problems or what ever we may be facing, Look at it from a different perspective, things happen for a reason. God has a way to turn it around for the better, within that trial, that can be something leading up to God purpose for that trial we are facing. Our trials at the end brings us joy cause we become stronger and we become better. Plus we overcome and then we inspire others and giving them hope. #Blessings #joyful #happythursday #wisdom

(Romans 7:24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?
We all have been in situations where we say negative things and feel like life is so hard that it's not worth living. What we forget to understand is that we all was made by god and for god. When we speak negative about ourselves or this life cause of frustration, all we doing is making it worse. What we need to do is go some where and just pray right away to God and ask for his peace, his help. It's very important that we remember that. If you don't seek God at all, but decide to handle things your way, you are just going to be confused and more frustrated. Pray right away, talk to God and Jesus in all situations. Keep a good altitude. #Amen #blessings #love #light #turntogod #turntojesus #hope #shine

β€œI will bless the Lord and not forget the glorious things he does for me”(Psalm 103:2 TLB).
#amen
Sometimes we are more focus on wanting more, but we tend to forget all our blessings we had in the past and now. We get down anytime that goal don't come true, we then start to think, "god isn't there for me", we start to complain. It's ok to want more but it's very important that we don't forget all we have now, and all the blessings that we ever had. Live in the now, see those blessings, more will come later on. #begrateful

Amazing passage from pastor Rick, read this online. I hope this message helps everyone. Starting your week inspired.
β€œYour kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10 NIV)

We worship God when we give him our lives every time we pray. Jesus teaches that when we pray, we should commit ourselves to God’s will.

God has a specific will for your life. The Bible says in Romans 12:2 that his will is good and perfect and it fits you. Part of connecting with God is saying, β€œGod, what is your will for me today? I want to do your will.” In Heaven, God’s will is done perfectly. The problem on Earth is God’s will is not always done. That’s why we’re to pray, β€œYour will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” We’re saying, β€œGod, I want to submit to you. I want to do what you want me to do.” You can pray β€œYour will be done” in three different ways. You can say it in resentment: β€œYour will be done, but I don’t like it.” You can say it in resignation: β€œYour will be done, because I can’t help it.” Or you can say it in anticipation: β€œYour will be done, because I know it is the best, and that’s what I want for my life today!” I was a kid, we watched a popular TV show called β€œFather Knows Best.” Your earthly father may not always know what’s best, but you can trust that your heavenly Father does. That’s what it means to say, β€œYour will be done.” Pray this prayer: β€œGod, I know your will for my life is better than anything I can dream up. I want to give you my life. I want your will done in my life.”

Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything,Β but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.Β And the peace of God,Β which transcends all understanding,Β will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
#Amen
I'm guilty of complaining at times, we all are but I sat back and reminded myself to do less complaining and more praying. We are human and so of course there's going to be some complaining but aleast if we learn to do less complaining and more praying, life will be much better. We need to learn to give it all to God, talking to God about the situation, that's actually part of how we have that closeness relationship with him, and then we will start to feel a peace, god truly guides us and helps to find a solution for every situation. #HappySunday #godislove #lesscomplaining ​#peace #morepraying #jesusislove

The most popular saying I always hear people say about themselves "I'm getting old." For me i reverse it "I'm getting younger."
I stay in the mind frame, I don't let myself fear of getting older. I still love to laugh at everything and be silly but at the same time I know when to take life serious at times but also having a humor. I'm a 21 year old mix with a 5 year old boy in a 38 year old body. "I'm getting younger"

Have a relaxing day!
Heavenly father says in
Matthew 11:28
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
#amen
Always pray for peace,comfort, rest. Sit back for a minute and take a deep breath, and just look at the sky, day dream into a peace and relaxation. It feels very good. When we pray for strength, we feel strong and relaxed.

Amazing passage from Pastor Rick, I read this online.
The Good News about God’s kingdom will be preached in all the world, to every nation. Then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14 NCV)

History’s conclusion is inevitable.

I believe this with all my heart. It’s afait accompli. It’s done. It’s finished. There’s no doubt. I’ve read the final chapter. God’s Word tells us how it’s going to end. One day God’s going to wrap it all up here on Earth, and he’s going to take his children home to Heaven to be with him forever. The Bible says,Β β€œThe Good News about God’s kingdom will be preached in all the world, to every nation. Then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14 NCV). I’m going to tell you something really important. The critics always get this wrong. Saddleback Church is not trying to bring in God’s Kingdom here on Earth through our efforts with The PEACE Plan. We are trying to populate the Kingdom of Heaven. We want to take all our friends and everybody else with us. Our goal is not to set up a kingdom here on Earth. Our goal is to get people in the Kingdom of Heaven so they can be with God for eternity.

The convictions we’ve been talking about for the last few days are really about the glory of God. God gets glory when you love him with all your heart. God gets glory when you love other people in the family of God. God gets glory when you love the people who are unlovable. God gets glory when you share the Good News with everybody. God gets glory when you trust him with problems in your life that cannot be solved except through a miracle. And God gets glory when you know and trust that the end is inevitable and that God wins.

Would you pray this simple prayer today? β€œDear Jesus Christ, I want to be a part of what you’re doing in the world. I believe you want to use me. I want to return to my first love β€” you. I want to be your hands and feet in the 21st century. Help me to believe and live by my convictions. In your name I pray. #Amen.”

James 4:7
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
#Amen
Very important that we totally give our selves to God fully, by having a relationship with him everyday, spending that time with him, talking and praying to him. Reading and studying his word. Spreading the good news to everyone, finding ways to get involved in giving back. Constantly praying in all situations. Rebuking the bad things of our world, by praying, "I rebuke this in Jesus name." When we pray that, the enemy will flee.
If we continue to walk with heavenly father, our god and Jesus, constantly praying, being all the father wants you to be, the enemy will flee.πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

God . . . is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of β€” infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes”(Ephesians 3:20b TLB).
#Amen
It starts with our faith, hope in God. Stay in prayers, reading the word and learning the word, putting god first through everything. What ever that purpose is for our life, God created us for that purpose. Through our dreams and goals, that purpose helps us change the world, making the world better. Keep praying, keep hope, god can truly take us way beyond then we will ever imagine. He wants us to live our calling , our purpose on earth.

Psalm 118:6
The Lord is on my side , I will not fear.
#Amen
It's very important that we understand that when ever you faced a bad situation or any trials, it's not god that makes them happen, it's our battle with the spirits of darkness, the enemy. We are at war but any trials we faced, god always makes us stronger through those trials and those trials turn around for the good. Also know that 90% is how we interpret the situation and your perspective but 10% is what actually happened to you. So basically whatever you may be facing, mostly it's how we deal with it. It's important that we find a positive solution, in all that we faced. That solution is god, praying and talking to God. Going to church and studying the word. Also helping others in our situation, cause what ever we learn in those situations, we can help change a life, so that person won't have to go through that bad situation. There's always a solution, positivity is good and keep hope. Looking at that situation in a positive light and why it happen, but knowing something good will come, it will be all turn around for the better, we always learn. So good is on our side always, we can always call on him. We shall not fear but if we do fear of course we are human, but we have the solution to overcome. #HappySunday #blessings #perspective #positive #interpretation #allpositivity #important #lookatthingsfromadifferentway #godlyway #love #live #hope

Amazing passage from
Pastor Rick, I read online.
Let the dead bury their own dead. You go and proclaim the Kingdom of God”(Luke 9:60 GNT). When you become a follower of Christ, God fills you with his Holy Spirit. The proof of the Holy Spirit in you is not some emotional experience. The proof that you have God’s Spirit in you is if you areΒ going.Β Are you telling anybody about the Good News?

Jesus said in Luke 9:60,Β β€œLet the dead bury their own dead. You go and proclaim the Kingdom of God” (GNT).
What in the world does he mean by that statement? It sounds pretty callous. But what he’s saying here is that you need to be indispensible. There are some jobs in life that anybody can do, but there are some jobs that only a believer can do. Only a Christian can tell other people about Christ. Only a Christian can tell other people how to get to Heaven. Only a Christian can show Christ’s compassion the way Christ wants it shown.
God wants you to be indispensible. Let the people who are spiritually dead do the things that anybody can do. Choose to spend more of your life doing things that only you can do.
There’s a lot of stuff you can spend the rest of your life doing that isn’t going to matter at all when you get to Heaven.
But there is something you can do that will make an eternal difference. Is anybody going to be in Heaven because of you? What kind of legacy are you going to leave? The greatest legacy is having somebody come up to you in Heaven and say, β€œI’m here because of you.” That’s using your life in a valuable way.

Talk It Over
What does it mean to be indispensable as a Christ-follower?What steps can you take today to do fewer things that won’t matter in eternity and more things that make an eternal difference? #happysaturday #ihopethishelpssomeone

Las Vegas traffic on this beautiful cloudy evening. Stepped off the bus, off from work. That feeling of feeling free. Looking around at the sky and the beauty. Sometimes we should take a moment to ourselves for those few minutes and just look. Everything is always fast pace, everyone is on their way some where but if we take a breath and just relaxed, and look at everything around us, it's very refreshing, and so free. Like a outer body experience.
