As I quote a song from a movie I loved to watch as a young girl I did not know that it would render me so many life nuggets. As I prepared to write to you today, I asked the Divine what can I say to them in today's lingo that would help me to reach them! He brought to mind The Last Dragon! It came out in 1985. If you have a chance to watch the movie, grab some popcorn, and take a look-see! I pulled a few things from this particular cinema. The signature song at the end of the movie goes a little something like this:
To reach the upper level your mind, body, and soul must be one.
It takes sacrifice and hard work
It's a way of life
When you got that GLOW
You feel the one
When you got that GLOW
Your body's gold
So don't let go
The power of elevation
Grace- To be Graceful. The way you carry yourself. Your Posture; the way in which you walk and speak. Your uniqueness (You Own It) Your Style you create it! It's about shining the light in which God has given you!
Loving oneself as God sees you. Saying what God says about you. Dispelling the thoughts you have created that is contrary to the word of God about you! Becoming! I know sometimes the picture of yourself may become tainted. Where you are in life, what you see, what you have experienced may have swayed your thinking. Please be mindful of your mind. Your thoughts send out energy that creates your reality if left unchecked. Love yourself enough to know, grow, learn, and be patient with yourself enough to become All God wants you to be.
Daily committing yourself. Discipline. Being intentional. Setting goals. Big and small ones. Surrounding yourself with those that can give you good wisdom and counsel that will help propel you to the elevated level you set to achieve. Determined, decisive, and daring. Walking this faith thing out! Something shifts in you when you do best and even when you miss you still have the resiliency to get back up again. That's the Super Glow! The Glow Power you have it! It takes work. The Harvest is great but the laborers are few. Are you of the few or are you at Work? Get to work. Work it! Consistency is Key!
The ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight.
Can I Selah? Life can be a bit rough I know. The state of the world we're living in now is a bit scary. Yes I know! It's almost like we are being stripped away of our freedom, joy, our way of life as we knew it. Living this "Ne Norm" can be a bit BLAH! Scary even! I'm here to serve you some hope. This too shall pass!! As we grow, we learn, we try, we make mistakes, it works sometimes, sometimes we fail at it, we try again, seasons change and time keeps on ticking. you are not too late. you are right where you need to be in this very moment. Access and then execute! The Glow comes we understand that despite everything that life brings us, we can still take a stance and press forward. God Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference!
