This generation desires authenticity while the posers continue to have their fakery exposed no matter how many ways they spin it. They can tell, they can yell, and they can threaten hell, but the audience is diminishing and not listening. God is delivering Himself through people who are willing to give of themselves. Becoming human as God intends, will increasingly become a powerful force for the good of mankind.

Whatever you perceive your value to be in this life, you will respond to life accordingly, based on your own self worth. Low values can only seen through the lens of what you or others may see, yet not through the reality of who you really are. God created you to be amazing and even now views you as a His amazing child. He lives within you, comforts you, and leads you to becoming the value He eternally sees you to be. Live in this reality.

We have spent way too much time asking God for a blessing instead of asking how we may be a blessing for Him and for others through our lives. On top of that, we ask God to bless the work that we are doing, and He often will not because it is not the work He is doing. Begin to rephrase your questions and renew your focus. Blessings come when we focus on the work God is doing, and in our willingness to work with Him.
A tribe is a people who find identify in a family, culture, or concept. Your biggest fans are found in relational tribes of mutual love, safety, and honor. We may also be part of a tribe that shares the same faith, or a tribe that engages together in the marketplace. You may find that you are connected to various relational concentric circles, or tribes within a tribe. You can flourish with the right tribe.

There are times that we are led away by God to hear His voice, be strengthened, and become refreshed for our journey. Those times are amazing as well as exceptional in our Spirit led existence. I have found that as I intentionally connect with God throughout my day, He speaks in marvelous clarity for each moment. In our synchronized life with God, we can remain empowered for every good work in the busiest of days.

Love is free and yet can never be forced. A God who loves with no conditions, risks that the love offered may never be received. This is the clarion call of the type of love we must freely receive, and also freely offer. There is great risk that the love that we give may also not be received. Do we then not give it? We must never withhold our love, God's love, from flowing from our very being to others.

Omnipotent God gives you the keys to an unshakable destiny. Nothing can stop His providential plans, and nothing can stop the seed of potential He has put within you. God is unstoppable and therefore God in you and God through you is unstoppable. When you know who you really are and do not cower at the obstacles you face, all obstacles must bow to Majesty, as you walk boldly through them in the strength of your God.

You cannot get rid of distractions, you can only steward them. You cannot leave planet earth which is a world of distractions, and sustained isolation is not good. The key is knowing what distractions you are meant to engage with or totally ignore. Distractions can bring pause to productivity, and yet discernment is needed on the occasion that God allows for it saying, "Pay attention child, I have a new assignment."

When we can keep the conversation going, the opportunity for discovery remains. Dogma and idiosyncratic walls can hinder the discovery of God, self, and each other. We sometimes divide ourselves over insignificant and presupposed truth or preferences, while God eternally desires oneness with Him and each other. Our collective conversations inspired by God, bring fullness to the Mysteries and the Majesty of our God.

The goal of one who is spiritual is to live in a constant state of amazement. It is to hop out of bed and with a bounce in our step declare,"Thank you God for another day to live, to serve, and have my being." As we live and move in God we look at the possibilities to bring His light and love to all that we engage with. We do not take life for granted, see everything as spiritual, and bring life through every choice.

We can convert our thoughts from a monologue to self of our fears, our past, and our painful present, to a dialogue with God. We will not remain a victim of thoughts when we discuss them with God, and allow Him to lovingly remind us of His freedom from our past, His peace for today, and His hope filled future with us. Our minds become renewed and the transformational process engaged as we talk to Love within us.

There are voices from our past and present that can linger in our hearts and minds. Some of them encouraging while others can slow us down, steal our dreams, and discourage us. There is a voice that must be amplified in your hearts and minds above all others. God's voice says, "You are my beloved, and my favor is ever upon you." When you tune your spiritual ears to His voice, freedom can come from all the negative noise.
