Are You A Survivor…

Your circle should be filled with those who are rooting for you when you feel down, who sit with you when you don’t feel well and who push you when you fail to show up as your best self.

Get Inspired with Energy Enhancers!

In my eBook Pray with Ease… I talk about Energy Enhancers.

To help you understand the concept, Energy Enhancers are the same as scripture, and scripture is inspired word.

Scripture inspires life, guidance, healing, love, encouragement, support, creativity, implementation, revelation and new beginnings.
I often use the following Energy Enhancers to get inspired!

  • Exodus 3:7-8 The Lord said, “I have seen the misery of my people

    in Egypt, and I have heard them crying out because of the slave

    drivers. I know how much they’re suffering. I have come to rescue

    them…”

  • Exodus 3:17 “I promise I will take away your misery.”

  • Psalm 4:8 “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord,

    make me dwell in safety.”

  • Psalm 5: 11-12 “But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let

    them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that

    those who love your name may rejoice in you. Surely, Lord, you

    bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a

    shield.”

  • Psalm 7:17 “I will give thanks to the Lord because of his

    righteousness: I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most

    High.”

One of the common themes within each of these 5 Energy Enhancers is Safety, and where there is safety there is freedom.

Freedom to be loved, creative, spontaneous, open-minded, vulnerable, expectant and relaxed.

Scripture will set your soul on fire with confidence, boldness and power!

Keep a handful of Energy Enhancers ready and available for use at any given time.

During your study time, search for scriptures that speak to you directly. Take notice of the types of scripture that you are drawn to. Is there a common theme? Are you drawn to prosperity, grace, safety, revelation, etc.?

Once you’ve found a few scriptures that speak to you, write them
down on a flashcard and keep them close to you for instant inspiration!

Listen to this short audio reminder to help you keep God on Your Calendar. I pray you have a great week and thank you for being a part of the Origins of Peace Community!

Weekly Devotional – Grounded for Stability

Outside of relationship with God, I am lost. There are no number of Social Activities, Work Engagements or other Commitments that allow me to feel the same satisfaction as having a true and uninhibited relationship with God.

In relationship I find peace, understanding, structure and stability.

I will embrace my uniqueness and seek to fully understand the work that I have been purposed to complete.

The closer I move toward God the more I understand who I am in him.

  • Words of reflection: relationship, satisfaction, uniqueness, uninhibited, purposed, structure, stability
  • Inspiration: Jesus Calling / Page:211
  • Scripture Reference: Psalm 42:1-2; Psalm 34:5; Philippians 2:15

The Peace in Giving Back

When the Call to Action went out to support a sister in the midst of her journey with breast cancer, I felt compelled to respond. It’s not everyday that the opportunity arises to offer support on a personal basis.

Being a breast cancer survivor who’s currently in her 5th year of survival, I understand that everyday choices are a huge part of the recovery process. I decided to gift this beautiful sister with the Planter pictured above in hopes that it would help to boost her mood during these trying times and also add a little peace to her space.

I remember the fear and uncertainty that I felt during my journey, but I also remember the love and acts of kindness that were shown to me during that time. I remember the visits, phone calls and texts. I remember the Banana Pudding Cake from my Sister in Law Lanita and I remember the beautiful Orchid from my Nephew Nicholas.

My hope is that my simple act of kindness will also be remembered as a simple act of love.💖

To this Sister I pray for Peace and Total Healing. ✨

Day 11: Let Loose!

Happy Good Friday Y’all!

There’s a video circulating on Instagram that adds absolute joy to my life. I’ve watched this thing at least 10 times and each time I have a different revelation.

My simple challenge for you today is to Let Loose in your own unique way.

You can belt out a #WhitneyHouston melody like the mom in the video or you can simply howl along with the dog like #babygirl.

It doesn’t matter. It’s been 11 days since the official #NCStayAtHome order began and I think you are doing an amazing job taking care of your #mentalhealth. I hope you enjoy this video just as much as I do!

Peace!

Day 1: Stop Using The Term Nonessential

Emotional Wellness Tip

IMG_1526

Let’s get this 30 Day Challenge started!

There are no nonessentials. Starting today, you should eliminate that word from your conversations.

Everyone has a role to play in flattening the curve of coronavirus. Yes there are Healthcare Workers, Police, Military, Food Workers and so on who are expected to show up, practice social distancing and perform their jobs onsite during this pandemic.

Then we have those who are expected to stay home and help lessen the chance of spreading coronavirus through community spread.

Both options are essential and should be respected as such.

A person may not be required to show up onsite to perform their job but their intentional decisions to say words of prayer, maintain 6 feet from their neighbor and take additional measures to stay healthy are essential to all of us.

Whatever your role, do it with pride and know that you are making a difference.

No More nonessentials!

Much Love,

Melissa
