As I share my reflections with you each week on early Sunday Mornings before I head out to the best house on the street to meet; The Good Lord’s House. I hope to share some things with you that will help you have a better week next week.
Sunday Mornins is my time with you to encourage you to reflect on your past week and analyze it,to learn from it, and to better plan for your upcoming week of work, life, play.
WARNING: this is the weekend and My personal beliefs are expressed in this post. M-F is about business and stem from the principles that I hold dear. Saturday’s; free flow. Sunday’s are dedicated to my Lord and Savior whom I wish to please to the best of my ability. I am not perfect; but thank God I am forgiven.
Absorb and release- change-improve, move more efficiently to accomplish more this week than you expected from yourself last week. As you grow towards your goals this week coming, think back to the week you just finished. Name 3 things that come to your mind right off the bat. Write them down in your journal.
Take time to reflect on your past weeks daily activities from work to play. Do it every week so you can keep trotting ahead like a champion.
Reflecting to projecting. That’s the way to make your life stronger, wiser, and to have a clearer site for your path ahead by breaking it down to one week at a time.
This weeks Sunday morning Reflections with: E. Michelle Lee/ subject:Don’t let them desensitize you; keep believing
Images, destruction of core beliefs and guiding principles, and latency to stand up for what we believe in are all factors that eventually will cause us to loose hope in tomorrow and what our true purpose on this earth was meant to be.
As I reflect back on this past week in search of solutions to use for the week to come; I think of how I see believability being torn down to feed the beast of self agendas. I remember a study of media in particular that concludes that a person will, after watching hundreds of thousands of vivid scenes on TV and in everyday life become desensitized to many things that they would have otherwise not accepted. Eventually we come to accept things we would not as it will take a toll on how we believe in hope for our future.
A great example is the violence we see on TV. Studies prove that after we watch this on a TV show it comes to no surprise to us when we see it on the news. Or, how if we listen to propaganda often enough that we are failures; soon we come to believe what “they” say is true about our being a failure and then we act and behave in such a manner as was acclaimed.
In one example of desensitization this week that I saw and feared the most was desensitizing folks that God is not in control as the creator of us all. I heard this man, who is supposed to be great, say an ol familiar sentence; the problem is he left out a portion of the sentence that I don’t think many caught.
You know sentences like this: When you hear peanut butter you expect to hear jelly. When you hear frick you expect to hear frack. When you hear jump you expect to hear rope. When you hear One Nation you expect to hear Under God?
When you believe, its been given to you as a gift to be able to believe in the first place. In order for you to be true to that belief you must be willing to give it your all. You also have to be ready to stand true to your belief and defend it to the uttermost parts of the earth.
Check out this weeks Exception To The Rules Song of the WEEK: “Keep Believing”, by Tim Pedigo
1 John 2:15-16
King James Version (KJV)
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
2 Timothy 3:16
King James Version (KJV)
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
First and foremost you must know that God teaches us to believe in all that He created us to be. To give our very best and to the service of Him who created us. That is what counts. Not that which is acceptable to people; but that which is acceptable to Him. IF we give in to the propaganda and easy ways of this world over what God has designed us to continue to do on His behalf; there are many warnings in His Word that tells us He will even forget our name or that we have existed. Stand up and believe you are to do what you were meant to do and to be the very best at it!
Have a blessed week and remember that your litmus test for showing that you believe through and through in the Good Lord who created you to be and do all that you can be; is to act upon the faith you have grown to hope in and live life to its fullest.
