Staying focused on your mission!

Matthew 26:39: Going a little further, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

Yes, it gets difficult! Yes, it sometimes gets so hard you wonder why you are still where you are. But as you can see from the scripture above, even Jesus got weary. Even he was overwhelmed with grief on his mission. However, he resolved to stay focused, and surrender to the will of God. Friends, God knows you are weary, and can see you when the circumstances around you are overwhelming. Remember, his timing is not our timing. You cannot focus on how long he has you where you are, you must only focus on doing his will for your life and staying focused on your mission. Here’s a quick reminder today about staying focused:

F- Focus on the truth of his word

O- Oppose negative thoughts about your situation

C- Concentrate on your calling

U- Understand it’s not your will but his

S- Speak life into your circumstances

#Finish Your Mission

Blessings ya’ll!

In Love,

I am a wife, mother of three, poet, author, teacher, and speaker. The first ministry God has given me started at home with my husband of 27 years. We have grown up together and become dear friends over the years. The Lord added three kids to the ministry, Elijah, Nehemiah and Amaziah. They have blessed us beyond measure in so many ways. We pray that we will be examples of the kingdom who they will want to always follow. In addition to family ministry, for the last 20 years I have taught Language Arts in private, public and home school settings. Throughout my years of teaching, God has given me a sincere heart for teachers. Therefore, I am on a divine mission to help the world appreciate and support teachers. It is an honor for me to encourage teachers by using the knowledge, skills, love of poetry, experience as a teacher that the Lord has given and match it with wisdom from the master teacher, Jesus Christ. I had the privilege to express some of this wisdom in my book entitled, “The Unforgettable Teacher’s Journey.” In this book I write about the truth of the miraculous ministry of Jesus to encourage and inspire teachers in their journey. Each chapter paints a beautiful picture of how the journey of a teacher is remarkably similar to the ministry of Jesus. Teachers will be inspired by the eloquently crafted biblical truths as well as the peaceful poetry that is strategically positioned throughout this book. I pray that all that I do, whether in family or public ministry, be a blessing to those who hear it!
