24 Sept – Living In The Supernatural

There are no limits in heaven, and nothing is impossible there. Awesome, crazy, wonderful things happen in that realm and they impact the world for good when released. Amazingly, God wants you to learn to operate in these supernatural and heavenly realms every day.

However, people often live conditioned by the world’s system that believes only what can be seen and understood in the natural. Truth is relative, there are no absolutes, and miracles don’t happen.

But God is supernatural and intended that our lives would be supernatural too! Jesus said, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. (John 14:12)

Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life. Now think where Jesus in your day is? Because the way we live our lives each day, every day, is a reflection of how much we know, love and trust Jesus. It is a reflection of the place Jesus has in our lives. He is not someone else to fill the gaps that are not occupied in our life but desires to be central and our all and all.

The question is to what degree do you allow the power of Jesus to work within and through you.

Will you allow Him to be involved in your everyday life? Because when He is, you will discover what real living is.

Today don’t let Jesus be an afterthought. Put Him at the very centre of your life. He wants you to know Him and for you to operate more and more in the realms of Heaven and the supernatural every day.

Make this month the start of doing at least one thing every day in the supernatural realm. 

Here are some ideas to get you started.

  • Practice an Act of Kindness, and bless someone. Ask Jesus Who it can be.
  • Seek God and spend time with Him
  • Read the bible -=
  • Ask God to give you a prophecy (a message from God) for someone, and then give it.
  • Ask God to show you someone to pray for – then go and pray for them.
  • Step out, be bold and make yourself available!
  • Go for it, and have FUN!

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life.” (Ephesians 2:10)

“But our citizenship is in heaven.”(Philippians 3:20)

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus”. (Ephesians 2:6)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2).

Prayer: Jesus, would you use me today. Lead me by your spirit and show me where to speak and how to bless those around me. Would you please reveal Heaven to me and help me understand how to operate from there. In Jesus name Amen.

23 Sept – Angels

When our children were little, I had a book called “Angels”. The book was inspired by the words of Psalm 91, known as the protection psalm, which says, “No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He (God) shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands, they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

I’ve grown since then in my understanding of angels and their role in my life and often encounter and sense their protection, presence and intervention as they assist and protect myself, others and our family from accident and harm.

I’ve had angels appear in the room with me, witnessed by other people angels standing all around me, seen evidence of their presence and even had white feathers appearing out of nowhere and floating down from the ceiling.

Sadly, however, it seems many people are often more aware of evil than they are of the presence of angels carrying out heaven’s business and taking care of them every day.

We don’t worship angels, but we can engage with and appreciate their help, just as Peter did in the Bible when an angel appeared to him and told him to get up and leave his prison cell.

Peter’s chains fell off, and he followed the angel out of prison to freedom. Interestingly, when Peter arrived at his friend’s house, where they’d been praying for his release and knocked on the door, they presumed that the servant girl who answered the door had heard Peter’s angel. (Acts 12:5-17) Everyone, including Peter, was not overly shocked at the angel’s assistance and presence. They all knew that angels are involved in our lives and looked for their involvement.

In the Bible, you’ll also find that angels appeared to Abraham, Moses, Mary, Joseph, Balaam and his donkey, the shepherds on the night of Jesus’ birth and Paul.

Angels appear so often in scripture and around you every day because it’s their job to respond to the Word of God.  Whenever you speak God’s promises, angels go to work to carry out His Word, which means when you desire or need angelic help; you need only to declare what God promises to engage their response. Then expect things to happen!

God promises He will look after you and commands His angels to assist you in your walk with Him. (Hebrews 1:4)

Be encouraged today that whatever you may be facing, endeavouring to undertake or are concerned about, God’s angels are at the ready and working on your behalf to protect, provide and bring what you are requesting from God to pass.

Praise the LORD, you His angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.” (Psalm 103:20)

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,
 no harm will overtake you; no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you so guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.” (
Psalm 91:9-12)

Angels,  “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:4)

“The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them.” (Psalm 34:7)

“Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realising it!” (Hebrews 13:2)

Prayer: Lord, thank you that you have your angels taking care of those things that affect my life and that they surround me. I trust you to send all the help, protection and assistance I need to achieve my purpose, and I ask you to send help according to the promises in your Word today. In Jesus name Amen.

22 Sept – Trust Me

I love the account of Moses in Exodus in the Bible. God’s people had finally been released from bondage and captivity in Egypt and had followed God’s instructions. They were now standing on the edge of a large expanse of water called the “Red Sea” with no way to cross. Suddenly they hear the chariots of the Egyptian army coming towards them. They feared for their lives and the lives of their children as they had no means of escape or defence. What are they to do? Trapped with nowhere to go are three million terrified men, women, and children.

And that’s when trust came into play. Moses lifts his face and calls out to God, “What do I do now?”

The answer comes, “Do not be afraid. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, which I will accomplish for you today. I, the Lord, will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace (Exodus 14:14). Then God instructs Moses to stretch out his staff over the water and watch what He will do for them.

All the prayers, all the crying out to God, all the hopes for freedom – everything now hangs in the balance. The army is fast approaching; their swords ready to cut them down or, at best return them to a life of bondage and slavery. But Moses stands His ground and trusts. And because He trusted the waters parted, the people passed safely through on the dry ground, and the ocean engulfed the Egyptian army as God accomplishes what He has promised. “I will fight for you, and you will hold your peace”.

Over the years, I have discovered some keys to help me trust God because trust gives us the confidence to believe, act when we need to, stand when asked, and have faith that God will get to us what He has promised.

I have found it helpful to:

1. Take hold of God’s Word. God is in His Word, and when you know what it says, you know Him. You gain an understanding of His character, of how He acts and what He will do for you. Knowing His word gives you confidence and causes an inner strength and calm, even in the midst of difficulties.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

 “The LORD said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” (Jeremiah 1:12)

2. Write down when God does something “amazing” for you. When you’ve prayed and seen God answer, when you’ve had a breakthrough; when you have received what you have believed for, that’s when you write it down so that you can recount it later, or the next time you’re faced with a challenge and need to put “trust to work”.

In our family, we make an effort to remind and tell each other when God has answered. We share testimonies of His goodness. We tell stories of others who have trusted and seen God move in their lives.

I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us– yes, the many good things he has done.” (Isaiah 63:7)

What does this do? It builds your trust. It expands your thinking of what God is and will do for you. People think and expect too small most of the time! Telling and retelling about when He has shown Himself strong helps you take your eyes off your circumstances and onto God. Then you pray more expectantly and can look and see things through His perspective and not your own.

Today, write down all the times you can remember when God has shown His love and care for you. The times He has revealed Himself strong for you or those you know.

Talk to those around you and ask them to tell of a time when God took care of them or moved in their life. It’s amazing when you start to talk to people about how many awe-inspiring, real-life stories people have to tell.

 We trust because we learn that God is trustworthy. The more time you spend reading His Word and growing in your understanding and relationship with Him, the more you will trust Him every day.

Prayer: Lord, I thank you for your friendship and word, which reveals who you are and how you show yourself strong on behalf of those who love and trust you. Help me take the time to get to know you, learn how to trust you, and to remember all the miracles you do in my life. In Jesus name Amen.

21 Sept – Practice Simple Acts Of Kindness

God is rich in kindness towards us, but sadly, society and even religion have twisted the image people can have of God. They blame Him for all the unkindness and hurts that they see in the world or may experience.

But God is kind. Kindness is who He is and the more you know Him and let yourself receive His love and kindness the more it becomes apparent in your own life. It’s in experiencing God’s kindness that often leads people to Him.

Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads to repentance”.(Romans 2:4)

God wants you to share kindness with those around you. With your family, your friends, workmates, and those you meet through the day. Why? Because people desperately need to see that kindness in you. Many go through the day never feeling the effects of kindness, never hearing a kind word, or encouraging smile. They are surrounded by negativity and hopelessness and are struggling. To be honest, these people are often the people you retreat from and avoid because they seem to be struggling and are grumpy all the time. 

But kindness has the power to change that. Practicing simple acts of kindness can soften a hardened heart and heal a broken one.

The bible says, “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32)

It takes courage to be kind. Courage to step out of your comfort zone to help another person. Courage to be kind even if that means risking loss or rejection in offering your kindness. But if you are secure in who you are and in God’s love for you, then showing kindness is far easier, and you understand that it’s not about you but about who you are kind to.

Kindness is powerful to effect change and healing in people’s lives. But it’s also beneficial for us. Medical studies have found that there are huge benefits to being kind. Not only does kindness make us and others feel good, but studies have demonstrated that the psychological benefits of kindness are reflected in the brain’s circuitry. Being kind increases happiness, life satisfaction, and self-esteem. It works for young and old, regardless of race, religion or social status.

When you are kind, you show someone that they mean something to you. Even if they are a stranger, you’re saying; your life matters. And in people’s often hectic and harsh world, even a kind word or a small gesture can help lift a bad mood, brighten someone’s day, give hope and open hearts up to the goodness of God.

Another interesting study revealed that kindness is found to be more attractive to people than good looks. So if you are looking for a date, partner, friend or even spouse, think about practicing kindness.

Today make the time to show kindness to those around you. It’s good for your health, brain, and mood; you may make someone’s day and even meet your soul mate.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your great kindness towards me. Please help me share that kindness with others and look for opportunities to make someone’s day? Amen. In Jesus Name.

20 Sept – How To Care For Your Soul

It’s important to allow your soul to feel and engage fully the great moments of your life as well as the ones that are more difficult. It’s okay; you’ll be alright – it’s part of practicing soul care and is necessary to live your best life.

Soul care is a deliberate choice. As John Eldredge says, “This is your own soul we are talking about; the door opens from the inside. “Jesus said, “I stand at the door and knock,” If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in”. (Revelation 3:20)

You open the door to your soul from the inside. Meaning you will have to walk in there, sit down and allow yourself to see, feel, remember and inhabit your own soul.

Today as I allowed myself to sit with and feel regarding a situation I had faced several years ago, I saw my soul like a series of rooms. Each room represented a time, place, relationship or situation, and memories were stored in those rooms.

As I looked, I felt Jesus knocking at the door so that He could wander through these rooms of my soul with me. He lives within me, but I can limit the flow of life and his tangible presence in certain spaces of my life by my choices and attitudes – I can shut Him out. I realised I had to open the door and invite Him in as I chose to engage again with my soul, because Jesus wasn’t going to push His way into those places that I had not invited him.

There are rooms in our souls where perhaps we’ve been too busy to enjoy something as much as we could have or where we’ve not allowed ourselves to feel a loss or disappointment. Essentially we can neglect our souls and then be surprised and wonder why we can’t meaningfully connect with God and others; why we can’t or don’t feel. Life becomes grey rather than full of expression, colour and experience.

But today, I want to encourage you that Jesus wants to help you inhabit your soul again. You will have to open the door and go in, but you don’t have to be overwhelmed.

As you check in on your inner world and invite Jesus to fill every space in your life, all the dry, empty places will be replenished, and the beautiful ones will be made even better. It’s how you will stay strong and ready for the next stage of your journey and is a vital part of practicing soul care.

Some Keys to Practicing soul care are:

1. Choose a “Room in your soul”; a time, place, a relationship, or situation. Go in and sit with a memory, your thoughts and emotions. Don’t tell your soul what to do; just give it permission and be present. It’s okay to be angry, sad, happy. It’s your room.

2. Invite Jesus to come and sit with you in that “room– You open the door to Him from the inside. Ask Jesus in and what He has to say about all you see, feel and are remembering. Listen to his comforting words of wisdom, interpretation of events, and promises as He causes the beautiful things within each room in your soul to be made even better and gently heals any pain.

Your soul is like a beautiful instrument created to experience a vast array of experience and expression. Over time, it can get worn and damaged, and unable to enjoy the music and sound it was designed for.

But as you tend to your soul, opening the door from the inside, Jesus will come in and heal and restore any damage or loss. As you are attentive to your soul and what it needs and dreams of, the more colourful, amazing and full of expression your life will become and the greater your ability to know God and others deeply.

Remember, “The door opens from the inside”.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” (Psalm 23:1-6)

Prayer: Lord, please help me reconnect with who I am today and to re-engage with the parts of me I have left behind, rushed past or neglected. Would you please come in and restore my soul and help me to tend to it more carefully from now on. Would you please come in.  In Jesus name Amen.

19 Sept – Keep Your Hopes Alive

Hope is a powerful thing, especially when you have put your hope in God. That sort of hope is a “deep settled confidence that God will keep His promises to you”.  It has a supernatural expectancy.

This hope is not based on our abilities or the goodwill of the universe but in God, who has the power to accomplish all things, including the seemingly impossible.

Hope in God will never allow you to be put to shame. Even when you may be tempted to feel that all hope is lost, or the world around you is saying, “give up”, God declares that He is faithful to His Word and urges us to remain steadfast in our believing, knowing that all things are possible for those who believe and that He will work all things for our good..”

The bible says, “No one who trusts in you (God) will ever be disgraced…Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long, I put my hope in you”. (Psalm 25: 3-5)

In our stance of hope it’s however important to understand that one of hopes biggest enemies is having to wait for things to happen. Waiting can erode our confidence as the days, weeks, and sometimes years pass by, which is why our hope has to be strengthened, nourished and energised for it to remain and work at its best. It doesn’t just happen, we need to make an effort to cultivate and maintain our hope.

It’s also wisdom to check that what you are believing for agrees with God’s Word and will for your life.

I’ve learnt that your hope increases the greater your assurance is of God’s goodness and His faithfulness to keep his promises. The more you acknowledge his goodness, the greater your expectation and hope.

Therefore one of the best ways to strengthen your hope is to remind yourself of God’s goodness and to recall all the times God has come through for you. As you remind yourself of the miracles and breakthroughs in both your own and other’s testimonies and in the accounts in God’s Word your hope in God will rise up.

As David said, “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.” (Psalm 43:5) David continually recalled God’s mighty acts and faithfulness.

Today, keep your hopes alive. “Don’t give up, or become  weary in doing good, for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9).

Focus your eyes upon Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith, on your goals and dreams and your prayers being answered. Remember every day that God is good, and always has your best interests in mind. And may the God of all hope fill you with peace and joy today as you trust in Him.

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)

 “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man, this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:27)

The LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” (Psalm 147:11)

Do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:8-9

Prayer: Lord, help me keep my hopes alive and remain hopeful even when I have to wait or when others say it is impossible. Today I choose to keep believing for good things because you are the one I put my hope in. In Jesus name Amen.

18 Sept – Life Is Like A Puzzle

One of our daughters is particularly good at doing large and difficult puzzles, especially those with thousands of pieces.

As she sifts through, finds and places each tiny puzzle piece in the correct place, it reminds me that life is like her puzzle, and if you approach every situation with the same process, you will find the people and situations in your world less challenging.

When doing a puzzle (and living your life), some keys helpful to best complete the picture are:

1 . Get it out of the box. You can’t achieve or do anything in life until you first get all the pieces of a puzzle or situation out of the box and in front of you.

2. Lay it all out -place all the puzzle pieces picture side up so you can see what matches, how the colours of the picture go together and what you have to work with. Anything we undertake much like a puzzle, requires understanding, thought, and seeing the size and complexity of the task before us before we begin.

3. Frame it up. Find the pieces that create the border of the picture or the frame first; just like a puzzle, life needs a framework or foundation to hold everything together and to give us a clear and reliable base to work from. Once we have the framework in place, we can begin to fill in the rest.

The best framework I’ve discovered is Jesus and what He says. He holds my life together, which then gives me the freedom and confidence to live out and colour in the rest.

4. Find the pieces that match and fit together. God has already designed the story or picture of your life and has given you everything you need and desire. However, it’s up to you to partner with him in arranging and fitting each piece of your life and destiny snugly together. Sometimes the puzzle pieces may look like they don’t fit together at first glance, but it’s okay to see how things work, to explore and to discover. These pieces can be in your relationships, career choices, hobbies, a church community or even your exercise routine. Take time to see what works and fits in your big picture.

5. Perseverance and time – large, intricate puzzles take time and perseverance, much like life.

To complete the picture, have to assess each piece and section of the big picture regularly. Some pieces look right, but as the puzzle progresses, it becomes obvious they aren’t meant to go together; some take a long time to locate the correct spot. You can even lose a piece and have to stop and look on the floor or under something to find it again. 

Life can throw curveballs; you can make a wrong move, connect to the wrong people or pursuits, and things can change…fortunately, God is faithful and goes looking to restore your missing or bent out of shape pieces so that your picture can be completed. 

He knows what it’s all meant to look like, so you can trust him to help you find what may have become lost in you or never even made it out of the box.

Trust Him to lead you today and He’ll guide you to connect each little piece of the puzzle together, bring the right people into your life, and give you the strength to persevere until all the pieces come together to finish the picture

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” (Philippians 1:6 NLT)

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NKJV)

Prayer: Lord, please help me bring all the pieces of my life together and trust that what you have started in me you will complete so that every piece fits perfectly. In Jesus name Amen.

17 Sept – Why Am I Reacting?

We can all become strung out and upset, which leads to us not always being fully in control of our emotions. However, it’s important not to allow the circumstances we may be facing to cause us to lash out at innocent people.

Instead, pause and understand that when you are “losing it” over things that there will usually be underlying, unresolved issues festering that you would be wise to examine. Because the longer you leave issues “festering”, the yuckier they get and the more annoying you can be to others.

God’s best for you is that you have peace and rest in your life and that you are known as someone who treats others with kindness and consideration. There is a way to get things done, but you don’t need to be awful and rude in the process.

Here are some thoughts to help you stop reacting with those outbursts that only harm yourself and those you lash out at. 

1. Take a good look at yourself – Stop and ask, “Why am I reacting in this situation? How am I feeling, and has something happened recently that I need to process and work through? 

In other words, deal with your stuff and get some help if you need to.

2. Morning pages – Write down three pages of whatever is on your mind first thing in the morning. You’ll be surprised what practicing this simple technique will reveal is going on in your heart and mind and how often God has been speaking every day to help and guide you.

3. Quiet time with Jesus – Spending time with Jesus and allowing His word to wash through your heart and mind helps keep your life in balance. The Holy Spirit reveals your heart to you and shines a spotlight on anything you might have missed or pushed aside.

4. “Is there anything you want to say, Jesus?” When your inner world is in an angry, stressed muddle, ask, “Is there anything Jesus you need to speak to me about? “Is my heart and conscience bothered and trying to tell me anything?”

If Jesus is speaking about something in particular or your conscience is bothering you, then acknowledge it, admit if you have done something wrong, and bring it to Jesus and ask for His forgiveness.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:19)

5. Do something fun and relax – When you are relaxed, you will think and process better, gain perspective about what matters in life, and find it easier to not “sweat the small stuff” so much. 

6. Sit down and talk –There is something about sitting down and having a good heart to heart with people who love and care about you that is vital for healthy lives and relationships. When you don’t do that, or others don’t take the time with you, a whole world of trouble can erupt.

It’s why it’s worth taking the time to build “heart to heart connections” with those in your world. Plus, when you or someone else is reacting or “losing it”, but you’ve taken the time to build strong heart connections, you can usually work through things a lot quicker.

Jesus knows that our lives are going to involve circumstances that may pressure and even annoy us. But He has a way to do life that enables us to live beyond the realms of how the world operates. (Galatians 5:16) The key is listening to Him and having the wisdom to stop and check how we are regularly going.

Make a decision today to be aware of what God is saying to you, and be self and others aware too. If you are reacting, assess why? If others are “acting out” around you, don’t react negatively. Perhaps find some time to have a “heart to heart” and discover what is really going on so peace can return to your world.

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” (Romans 12:10)

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27)

Prayer: Lord, help me be more aware of my inner world and hear when you speak to me. I don’t want to go through life reacting and “losing it”. Forgive me where I have been doing that, and help me live a more peace-filled, joyful life. In Jesus Name Amen.

16 Sept – A Routine For Success

Daily routines are what keep you focused and moving forward even when you face challenges.

I am in lockdown, and many things are not normal for me right now; however, on the days I determine to stick to a routine and some sort of schedule, I am far more productive, feel in control, and mentally and emotionally, I am more stable.

A daily routine is important because it enables you to take back control and move in the right direction even in the midst of limiting or difficult circumstances. It empowers you to achieve, move forward, and enjoy your day.

“You never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret to your success is found in your daily routine” – John Maxwell

Here are some ideas to help you create a routine for success:

1. Order your day set a daily schedule to maximize your time and effectiveness. Buy or download a diary and set some boundaries and guidelines for your day and plan what you desire to achieve. “redeem your time.”

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:16)

Having consistent behaviours every day (or week) enables you to make the things you do habits. But make sure what you choose to focus on serves your goals and dreams because “having a routine is great if it serves your goals. If it’s not doing that, it’s called a rut”. – J La Jaunie

2. Spend time reading and studying the bible – some days you may spend more time than others but discipline yourself to read at least a little every day.

“The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.” (Psalm 119:130)

“All Scripture is breathed by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

3. Encourage someone and talk to someone who encourages you

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” (1 Thess 5:11)

“Anxious fear brings depression, but a life-giving word of encouragement can do wonders to restore joy to the heart.” (Proverbs12:25 TPT)

4. Give away something every day – maybe a kind word, a coffee or a meal. Look to be a blessing and generous in some way every day.

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25)

A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.” (Proverbs 18:16)

5. Do something every day that moves you toward fulfilling your goals – it may be working on a project, a phone or conference call, or researching your next move. It’s consistency that will keep you moving forward towards fulfilling your goals.

In consistency lies the power, or as Bruce Lee said, “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks, but I do fear the man who has practised one kick 10,000 times.” – Bruce Lee – Martial arts expert, actor, and director)

6. Exercise – Go for a walk, do a workout, get your heart pumping- your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. Look after it, and it will enable you to run your race well.

7. Do something fun and creative – it’s important to do things you love, it’s makes you glad and appreciative of the fact you are alive.

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive” – Howard Thurman

There is never enough time to do everything, but there is enough time to do the important things.

I encourage you to make the most of the time you have been blessed with. Create and stick to a daily routine and go smash out those goals.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for this day and all that you have planned for me to accomplish in it. Would you please help me measure my days wisely and make the most of every opportunity to know you more, pursue your purpose for me, and fulfil my dreams? In Jesus name Amen.
