Simplify your life!

 

Today, I wanted to share some practical ways that we can simplify our lives, avoid distractions and frustrations by prioritizing.

We live in a world that advises us to hustle and to do a gazillion things to get a head. These things can not only become distractions but they can seriously cause us to lose sight of priorities and cause unnecessary problems in our lives.

In order to simplify our lives we have to determine what things in our lives are activites and what things are priorities.

In Luke 10:41-42 Martha chose to make being a good hostess a priority but her sister Mary made sitting at Jesus feet and hearing what He had to say her priority. When Martha became frustrated (she was totally distracted and focused on the wrong things) and asked Jesus to check Mary for not helping her Jesus responded “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her”

So what did Mary do that made her able to relax and keep it simple??

Made God and the things of God her priority

Sitting and learning from Jesus was more important to her than running around and being a good hostess.

The truth is without the presence of God nothing we attempt will be fruitful anyway. We should make it a habit to pray daily, seek guidance/direction 1st before moving throughout the day. Once we make being in God’s presence a priority we can make it a habit to live in His peace.

Today I am challenging you to make a list of activities and then make a separate list of priorities. This week be sure to put the priorities before the activities and watch how God moves in your life. I’m challenging myself too!!!

Be SMART not envious!!

We tend to look at people and assume their process has been overnight or that they are in a better position than we are but the truth is we only get a glimpse of their highlight reel.

Don’t envy where someone else is!!

You don’t know how much has been given and how long it has taken for them to get to where they are.

Be SMART!! Take notes.. Anyone in a position higher than you can become your inadvertent teacher, someone you are able to learn from.

Inspiration|Tag… You’re it!!

“The name of the Lord is a fortified tower, the righteous run to it and are safe.”

Proverbs 18:10 NIV

                           As I read this scripture I had a flash back into my childhood. 

 

I remembered playing tag as a child. We would choose the biggest rock in the middle of the complex to be “base” and then we’d choose someone to be “it”. That person would count and then come chasing after us all, trying to lay hands on anyone they could. If you were caught then you were it but, if you made it to base you were guaranteed safety. You were untouchable!! Most times, once you hit base the one that was “it” wouldnt even come near you because they knew you were safe on that rock.

 

As I meditated on that scripture I realized the similarities in that game, my life and how today Christ is that rock for me and many others.
As I continued to roll it around in my head the word “righteous” stuck out to me. It was as if I had gotten the basics, but RIGHTEOUS was the key word.

So what does righteous mean?? 
Basically it’s living your life according to the word of God, Living Gods way….

Many times we skip over “Righteous”. Maybe we don’t really understand what it means, or righteous living isn’t something were ready for, but we’ll have to get ready because according to the Word, those are the ones the promise is for.

“the RIGHTEOUS run to it and are safe”

So many things are constantly after us. Our past, addictions, negative mindsets, fears, exes (They’re bad too girl 😂). They don’t want to just “tag” us out they want to TAKE US OUT!! They want us to give up on our dreams our faith AND our life! But no matter how much they chase us we have ALWAYS have a BASE to run to. With Christ we are guaranteed safety. We are UNTOUCHABLE!!

 

 

If you don’t have a personal relationship with Him, I encourage you to receive Him today. Confess Him as your Lord and Savior and ask Him to enter your life today. You’ll be glad you did!!

Confidence is KEY

Hi Beauties!

Confidence is key when it comes to being successful at any thing  in life…

Whether you want a promotion at work,a new house or even to learn how to do your own makeup, BELIEVING that you can actually do it is major.

Most times we set goals that we don’t necessarily believe we can accomplish, we doubt ourselves so much that we finally give into a mindset of defeat. Once we get to defeatville getting out seems as impossible as meeting the goal.

Trust me I’ve been there all too many times, however, I have chosen and will continue to choose confidence everyday! Confidence in my abilities as a Makeup Artist, Beauty Educator, and an influencer to women every where.

Everyday I don’t FEEL that way but my choice to be confident allows me to move forward regardless.

So what are you wanting to do but lack the right mindset to actually do it? What area of your personal life do you need to give yourself a confidence check and boost??

Remember….

Confidence is key when it comes to being successful at any thing in life…
