Do you know the importance of your life seasons?

Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

I love how the KJV states a time for every purpose. I’ve learned within the past year and some months, that my purpose is far more greater than I could ever imagine in a million years. Which means my seasons of life that I have gone through and are currently going through are preparing me for my purpose. I know that it has been a mystery full of confusion and aggravation to most that have been affected by my purpose journey. But I’m here to tell you that no matter what it looks like to others because trust me when I tell you that they will have their opinions on what you “should” do. Make sure that you listen to the voice of God! Learning to accept the season that you’re in is a key to peace of mind and growth. At times you may be tempted to compare your season to someone else. All that will do is cause you to delay your growth, cause envy, confusion, self-pity etc. Use the season wisely. The season that I’m in currently is being used for more outreach for Gods Kingdom like mentoring kids, helping families with adopted children with troubled backgrounds, teaching children at church, leading a divorce care 4 kids ministry, blogging, Academic Director for our company Eduvention mentoring and consulting, LLC and being available to help as many people as I can while being back in Houston (just to name a few).

If I had tried to “fix” my previous season to my liking and comfort zone, NONE of this would be taking place right now. It all takes place when you open your heart to God and ask for Him to reveal His plan/purpose for your life. You MUST grab to His hand TIGHTLY because it will be full of the uncertainties and weakest points of your life. Cling tightly for the ride!!! God will remove you from situations that aren’t bearing fruit in your life. He loves us sooooooooooooooooo much, I don’t think there are enough o’s that I could type that will begin to describe our Father’s love for us.

Looking at the picture above, I did it like that because when you take a picture you are capturing the very moment that is taking place. When you look back on pictures, those memories and feelings come back from that exact moment that you were there. The different seasons in the picture represents your life story and when it all comes together to the picture that you take today! Embrace your different seasons and look how they have changed and formed you into who you are today. Oh  and don’t forget… Every great and most memorable masterpiece (meal) required multiple seasonings and different amounts. Some are beautiful to look at, some are very plain, some are sweet, some are rocky and salty, some are spicy just to name a few and those can represent our different seasons in our lives. So don’t forget that they will make a purposeful masterpiece that God will be very pleased with.

Which face do you wear the most?

Which face represents worry?

Luke 12:22-25
Do Not Worry
22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life[a]?

If you find yourself worrying about different things, that means you are lacking trust in God. I still struggle from time to time with worrying. When I find myself worrying or as soon as an ounce of worry starts to creep in, I go to God and ask for forgiveness and that my trust will be renewed. I use to be the Queen of  Worrisomeville (a made-up  place that I use to reside in). I’ve had to learn that God has everything under control for my life. That learning process was not an easy one at all, it took me from my comfort zone and security into nothing land. God showed me that I must trust Him to deliver the plans that He has for me and that no man could EVER do what He did and is continously doing in my life.  So stay in His will and get in the passengers seat and listen to the pilot. Trust that He will never leave you nor forsake you.

All 4 of those faces in my picture represents my life journey and how God has transformed me into the Candyce that I am today. I still have more growing to do and I encourage you to grow as well!

Watch God happen & LOVE U!
(Watch God happens means to stand back and watch Him work while doing your part by growing in Him to be able to see His hand in everything).

Get rid of those weeds!

wpid-2015-08-06-14.31.08.jpg.jpeg

Jesus is speaking in John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit- fruit that will last-and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.

In order to be fruitful like God call us to be, we must get rid of those strongholds of sin so that God can use us. God and sin will never dwell in the same place. The only way for those strongholds to loosen its grip from you is to draw closer to GOD. Apply His word and stay in prayer. Switch your focus from self to God and I guarantee that you will start to experience God on a whole new level. Getting rid of those weeds means getting rid of those sins that are choking you and preventing you from producing healthy produce.

Watch GOD happen throughout this day!!! TIL NEXT TIME MY LOVES…
