Not All That Glitters Is Gold

Not All That Glitters is Gold!
Developing a habit that, before I make a decision, I check my level of peace. If there is an unrest about it, it’s best to not move forward. How many people are getting into relationships that they have no peace about, and end up miserable? Buying/investing in things they don’t have peace about and end up in dept? Take a job they dont have peace about and end up frustrated? Go to that place they had no peace about and end up in regret?
The key is; if you dont have peace deep down, before you make the decision, you’re not likely to have peace after the decision is made (in my experience).
But in the end at least you experienced and can learn from it. Thank God, He shows us the light!!
Lets try making it a priority to develop the art of listening, to pay attention to the promptings/signals/gut feelings… and you will rise higher, overcome every obstacle and become all that God has called you to be.
Let Peace be your Empire.

The Importance of Rehearsing

Rehearsing can sometimes be a drag. I know.

But hey…It is key! How will you get better unless you practice?

It’s all about repetition, and enjoying the repetition process. If you’re finding it long winded…reconsider what and how you are rehearsing.

My dad always drummed into my ears (from a very young age) “practice makes perfect”! This wasn’t always regarding music or singing, it was to do with any and everything; my education, cooking, designing, computing and so much more. So I took that advice on board and it definitely worked for me. There are times when I’m not as consistent in rehearsing as I should be, because of my busy schedule i’ll admit, but when I am, I do see the results.

Here are some scriptures to encourage you in your rehearsal process.

Proverbs 23:7For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”

The apostle Paul writes in 1 Timothy 4:14-15, “Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to your through prophecy with the laying on of hands by the council of elders. Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress.”
