Living a Life of Blessing ~~ Joyce Meyers Devotionals

I believe that one of the greatest opportunities we have as Christians is to make a profound difference in the lives of others. Throughout my life of ministry, God has given me the opportunity to help many people who need guidance.

But I don’t believe this is a special opportunity that God made just for me. Everyone, you included, has the ability to influence someone. When you take the time to reach out to others and invest in someone’s life, you are impacting the world…yours and theirs.

Galatians 6:10 tells us to “be mindful to be a blessing” to everyone God brings across our path. We are called to be a blessing and build up others in their faith, to not be afraid to reach out and to speak the truth in love.

I don’t believe God wants us to be mere spectators in life. He wants us to be people who really love others and care enough to be willing to pour into their lives. We need to build up others in Jesus’ name so they can grow and reach even more people.

Whether you know it or not, someone’s watching and looking up to you. People are influenced by the way you live and they need to see God’s love in your everyday actions.

At times we’ll make mistakes, and when we do we can thank God for His forgiveness, but we also have to realize that many times we may be the only evidence of God some people see.

Prayer Starter: God, every day there is another opportunity that You have given me to reach out, bless and influence someone else with Your love. I want to live a life of blessing toward others, showing them what it means to live a God-focused life.

God has actually allowed me to minister to someone here recently. I really didn’t think that I would be able to do it when the time came, but it was so easy and I hope and pray that the person I talked to was helped.

Go out and do God’s work. We might be the only christian or bible that someone ever hears or sees.

Used In Two Different Ways

A nurse who is also a southern rapper….really?   Keep reading……

Realize that God sees you in a different light than you see yourself. “Man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart”
          1 Samuel 16:7

First giving all Honor and Glory to God my Father.  I would like to pubicly thank JAE for everything that he has done for my son and I.  I would like to ask that God would Bless his life and use him to speak, educate, inspire and continue blessing those who he comes in contact with.This is a brief story about a youngman, JAE, who came into my sons life as his private duty nurse.  He has truely been a blessing to me and my family since his return.  But by the Grace of God that he is in our home caring for my loved ones today.

You see, JAE was on another case before Thanksgiving 2012 and I had a nurse who was going to have to leave to have an unexpected surgery.  Being the particular mom that I am about the nurses who take care of my son, I ask for someone who had already taken care of him and already familiar with him.  They didn’t have anyone available and sent two nurses to orientate for the position.  They were ok but I still wanted someone who had been here before.  I had come to the conclusion that I was going to have to settle for one of the nurses they had sent.

One day me and another nurse were discussing the new nurse coming on when she mentioned that she heard that JAE was available.  Not asking any questions, I immediately contacted the agency and ask them to call him and see if he would be willing to come back to our case.  He accepted and has truely blessed and helped me with tips and suggestions to help in my sons care.  He loves his job as a nurse and takes it very serious always striving to see his patients get better or to help them live as much a normal lifestyle as they can.

Some of the things he does for Eman is helping to keep his airway cleared.  #seriouswork

Other times he is playing with him by boxing, right here catching a right hook.  #playtime

Catching a right hook from Eman

Around Christmas we were talking about music, I in particular was sharing with him about my cousin, Sarina-Joi Crowe who made it to Hollywood when she was 15 years old on American Idol then again this year at 17 years old.  At this time JAE let me in on a little more about his life and I found out not only is he a nurse, but he is also a Rapper.  A Southern Rapper who has written and recorded several songs.  I knew he rapped but I had never heard any of his music.  This is how humble JAE is because he never boasted or bragged about his music, he was here to take care of his patient. 

He has a website that is in the making and I encourage you to visit it.  Go to jaeflip.com and like it and let’s support our upcoming singers in the south.  The music on his site can be downloaded.  He has also expressed an interest in holding seminars educating young singers about he music industry and what they need to know about getting their foot in the door.  Prayfully this will come to pass in the near future.

His music is about his life and his message come from his life experiences from things that he has been through.  JAE has gone through so much growing up and to see him as a nurse and caring for patients the way he does is nothing more than God at work.

Now when you visit his website it will have pictures of him making all kinds of faces and showing different expressions, emotions, attitudes and confidence.  He has every right to portray that bad boy imagine because of what he has gone through, how do I know, because I have heard his story, saw the scars and he is still here.

God is not through with this youngman yet and I am excited about the possiblities he has in store for him.

When Good Things Happen to People who have Hurt You ~ Joyce Meyers Daily Devotionals

Have you ever seen someone receive a blessing from God and felt like they didn’t deserve it? Have you seen good things happen to someone who has hurt you?

When a person who offended you gets a blessing, it can grate on you, at least it did for me until I learned how to forgive.
The Bible says that good and bad things happen to both the righteous and the unrighteous. When someone who’s hurt you receives a blessing, it makes it even harder to forgive them, but you are still called to pray for them.

I want to encourage you today to bless the people who have hurt you by praying for them, even though you may feel hurt and irritated by them. When you pray for people who have hurt you, it’s a choice you make. And forgiveness is based on your decision – not a feeling. But there’s healing in that for you.

A forgiving lifestyle helps you become more like Christ. As you learn the importance of forgiveness and begin to pray for blessings for those who have hurt you, your heart will heal from bitterness, and your personal growth will lead you to the blessings God has planned for you.

Prayer Starter: God, it might be hard, but I know I need to pray for and bless those who have hurt me. I realize that forgiveness is a choice, so I ask you to help me as I choose to forgive.

I know this has happened to each of us but Forgiveness is the best thing to do.  It will give you peace and peace of mind.

I love everyone, I might not like what you do but I would never be able to hate you.  GOD is LOVE and that’s who I am striving to be like.

Let’s everyone show some LOVE to everyone you meet and pray for everyone including  your enemies.

The Greatest Winner who ever Lost

GODMorning Beautiful People:

When we compete in any competition we all would like to win.  Sometimes we lose and get mad and nasty about the whole situation.  If we would just have a postitive attitude even when losing, we show others that being able to have fun and enjoy ourselves out weigh our loss.

You see when JESUS LOST HIS life on the cross for us, it was a sad day on Calvary’s Hill but when we let JESUS light shine in us and show up in our lives to others by spreading the WORD OF GOD, JESUS becomes the GREATEST WINNER WHO EVER LOST.

If GOD speaks a word or something to your spirit to share with others, why not share it with the world via twitter, facebook or any other social network your on. 

If you don’t use social networks just text it to all your contacts in your phone. 

GOD likes for us to spread his word no matter how it done.
