Wow! It’s been like better than the best Christmas or Birthday today – just one encouragement, word of Strength or the sweetest Embrace from the Presence of God after another, since I opened my eyes. Thank You. I’m so terrifically grateful and in complete Awe & Adoration. I couldn’t bear not to share these Uplifting Wings with anyone else who has ears to hear, or has a heart to receive such precious and powerful words of Edification. I was in Need – and now my Cup truly runneth over.<3
“Life is tough, that’s a given. When you stand up, you’re
gonna be shoved back down. When you’re down, you’re gonna be stepped on. My advice to you doesn’t come with a lot of bells and whistles. It’s no secret,
you’ll fall down, you stumble, you get pushed, you land square on your face. And
every time that happens, you get back on your feet. You get up just as fast as
you can, no matter how many times you need to do it.
Remember this, success has been and continues to be defined as getting up one more time than you’ve been knocked down. If experience has taught me anything, it’s that nothing is free and living ain’t easy. Life is hard, real hard, incredibly hard. You fail more often than you win, nobody is handing you anything. It’s up to you to puff up
your chest, stretch your neck and overcome all that is difficult, the nasty, the
mean, the unfair. You want more than what you have now, prove it! You want to be
the very best out there, get out there and earn it! Once you decide
that, you’ll know where it is you want to be, then you won’t stop pushing
forward until you get there! That’s how winners are made. At the end of the day,
success is what we all want. We all wanna win, and the race will be won. There
is no question about that. So c’mon – get out on Top! Run Faster! Dream Bigger!
Live Better than you ever have before. This is in you. You can do this. Do it
for yourself. Prove it to yourself.” –Gary Raser
Choose you this day, Whom you will serve..” (Joshua 24:15)
“Will is the whole person Active. I cannot give up my will. I must exercise it. I must will to obey, and I must will to receive God’s Spirit. When God gives a vision of Truth, it is never a question of what He will do, but of what we will do.
The Lord has been putting before us some big propositions – and the best thing to do is remember what you did when you were touched by God before – – – the time you were saved or first saw Jesus, or realized some Truth. It was easy then, to yield allegiance to God; recall those moments now as the Spirit fo God brings before you some new proposition.
‘Choose you this day Whom you will serve.’ It is a deliberate calculation; not something into which you drift easily; and everything else is in abeyance until you decide.” –Oswald Chambers

“If not now, when?
Procrastination or putting things off is a common trap to fall into … especially when it comes to pursuing our dreams or doing the things we know we need to in order to accomplish what we want.
Let TODAY be the absolute last day you put anything off. Go for what you want. Take action every single day (no matter how small the step). Be bold. Be confident.
You sooooo can do this! Take a step RIGHT NOW in the direction you want to go. You will feel amazing after you do.” – Sibyl Chavis
Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8)
“This is the law in the Spiritual Life. You must turn to Me before you are conscious of My nearness. It is that turning to Me you must cultivate in every circumstance. A glad turning of thankfulness, or a turning of weak appeal.
It is so wonderful that nothing more is needed but that mute appeal. You have no need to voice your longing. No need to plead, no need to bring gifts. How wonderful to feel you can so simply claim help – and so promptly, so lovingly, it is there.
Not only Help, but the comfort and joy of Divine Nearness & Companionship. A nearness that brings sweetness into life and confidence, and peace.
Never fear, never lose heart. Draw near to Me, and in that nearness is all you need. My Presence alone can transform conditions and lives – bring Harmony, Beauty, Peace and Love.” – God Calling 9/23
Hope your Today held whispers or shouts of pure Glory, ;o) ❤ L
