Be Inspiring!

Be Inspiring!

Growing up, it never crossed my mind to be an inspiration to anyone. Coming from a broken home, I had too many internal issues that I was dealing with. Things like insecurity and trying to find love in boys to fill a void controlled me and in no way was I focused on victory in such bondage.

 

It wasn’t until I asked Jesus to save me that God began to show me that there is much more to life then always focusing on self and my issues. To inspire others, I believe I had to be inspired myself. As I grew with God, I began to read his word and He began to work on me and my attitude towards self. He gave me the love that I needed and the desire to go higher in Him and to inspire others to do the same.

Every day the enemy is trying to steal my joy and victorious attitude. Some days are easier than others but one thing I have embedded deep down inside is that I can’t lose a race that is already fixed. All I have to do is run the race! Tell the enemy he is defeated & fight with God’s word.

Ladies, do you know we set the atmosphere? We have so much power but how much of that power do we use in a negative way? Have you ever noticed that when you have an attitude you bring down those around you? Let your atmosphere be full of life, joy and encouragement. Who wants to be around women with stinking attitudes, complaining spirits and just bitter? Speak life and not death to your family and friends and bear good fruits.

“But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence)” AMP – Galatians 5:22

A tree is recognized by the fruits it bears!

Serve God and be an example to those around you. Allow your service to be a sweet smelling aroma to God. We must remember that there is always someone looking up to us, wanting to mimic the things we do. My niece is going on 5 and I realized that those little things I did, she did. When I would start to sing a song, she sang it to. When I would go to lay down she would come in the room and lay just how I lay.
Whether it is a small child or a person of the same age, we unknowingly plant seeds in their life, good or bad. What are you showing those around you, love? When they look at your life do the words “virtuous young woman” come to mind (Proverbs 31)? How about victorious, faithful, God fearing?  Is it money hungry, hateful, gossip queen, loose goose (promiscuous). You have the power to choose.

To be inspirational, we must first look deep within and acknowledge the things in our hearts that are not pleasing to God, the creator. Seek Him and ask Him to remove it and be careful not to get discouraged when He shows you who you really are. Have the same attitude David had in Psalms 139:23

Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. AMP

OR

Investigate my life, O God, find out everything about me; Cross-examine and test me, get a clear picture of what I’m about; See for yourself whether I’ve done anything wrong— then guide me on the road to eternal life.”  MSG

I have struggled with many things in my life, anger, jealousy, insecurity, lust and the list goes on. Once I learned to give my heart to God, I began to see his glory in my life and believe His word and stand on it. It’s tough to see the real you, the hidden darkness of the heart but God says in Malachi 3:2,
“For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness.” AMP
 

This shows that God comes and cleanses us and removes any imperfections that hinders us from being a reflection of His image. He is awesome! He will not leave you the same. No longer will you let the enemy rule your life. Be determined today that God’s pull forward will be much stronger than the devils push back. When you’re around others, people should think,

“there is something different about her, she stands out. What does she have that I don’t?”

The answer is The Holy Spirit !

Your light should be so bright that others will want what you have, Christ. Let your light shine today. No matter what your past looks like, God said in Him you are as new creation. I just want to encourage you to be that kingdom young woman God has created you to be, a spirit filled, powerful young woman. Be inspirational!

Stay Encouraged. Love you!
