Your 2011 Circumstances Are 2012 Opportunities

As I talked to several people last year, I realized that 2011 was rough year for a lot of them. Some people lost their jobs, homes, children and heck I almost lost my life in a car accident.

Regardless to the circumstances or problems you had, there is total deliverance out of everyone of them! Guess what? If you reading this post, you are still here and alive - thank the Lord!

God wants to use your 2011 circumstances as 2012 opportunities for his Glory. So stop reflecting on them with the mindset that you have been defeated but with the mindset that God was strong in those circumstances to bring you out of them. Let others know about how God came to your rescue and delivered you out of them all. Even if you still have some residue of them, don't grow weary or get faint because help is still on the way.

You will get closer to God as you go through these circumstances as He reveal to you how awesome and wonderful He is. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Yes you may have lost your job but guess what, God has a better job for you in 2012. You may have lost your home, but guess what, God has another home for you in 2012. Yes I was in a car accident but guess what, I had car insurance and my car looks better now than before I had the accident.

In conclusion, let's give God some glory for our 2011 circumstances and situations and anticipate the wonderful opportunities of 2012 as we seek God's supernatural deliverance!

Delve Into Your Purpose In 2012!

Greetings! I haven't written a post in a couple of days since I had a cold/flu. I should have it licked by the weekend. So, I did not get a chance to say Happy New Year yet. Since this is day 4 of 2012 and everybody is back to work and school, I would like to say Happy New Year! I pray that you and your family will have a blessed and prosperous year.

So, have you thought about what your purpose is for 2012? We are all here for a reason and a season. Since 2012 is representative of God putting things in order for His people, let's make this a priority.

What is it that you need to have God put in order so that you can operate in your purpose - the thing that you were put on this earth to do? It might sound simple but you will be surprised to find out that there are a lot of people who still don't know what they are gifted to do.

We all have creativity. That creativity stems from our makeup. We have a brain to come up with creative ideas. We have a mouth to declare the creativity without shame. We have hands to skillfully operate in our creativity.

Example: You love to cook. Use your brain to come up with healthy cooking tips and meals. Use your mouth to let others know about your recipes you have come up with for them to tryout. Use your hands to cook these healthy meals for the elderly, for a single mom who is working and going to school and don't have time to cook healthy meals for her kids or help your local church by doing a fund raiser for their your group with your cooking.

In conclusion, I pray that you spend time in prayer with the Lord so that He can reveal to you your purpose.
