Self Doubt & Low Self Esteem

self doubt push ministries

Self doubt and low self esteem are the biggest hurdles to overcome. God created us in perfection and yes, we all have messed up at some time or another BUT God forgave us and we need to forgive ourselves and get ALL of the negative talk out of our ears.
YOU ARE, Because HE IS!!

Hold On A Minute

push ministries hold on a minute

You drop God’s name to sound important, You go to church to be seen but when a challenge comes you are the first to fall apart. God is not just a name, or thing. God IS the creator, protector, healer, supplier, and lover of all. You HAVE to have relationship in order to bring ALL of his blessings. God does not honor a good actor. He will expose you quickly. Stop the fake. Stop trying to get attention. Truly get to know HIM!!

Just Because

push ministries just because

JUST BECAUSE a friend or family member is overwhelmed with stuff, doesn’t mean it’s you or your fault. Each person chooses how to handle things and if they get stuck on certain issues that is their choice and should not be taken out on you.
Family is supposed to be about Love and not judgement. True Friends, look over the broken fences and concentrate on the flowers.
Love you, know you were created uniquely with a God given purpose. Don’t let others choices of how they see you, define who you are. You were created perfectly in the image of God. Walk in boldness that you Are worthy of the best. Step out, surround yourself with others who are seeking the good, and watch God work

Breakdown Or Breakthrough??

break down or breakthrough push ministries

Today I was counseling a young person about an unfortunate incident that happened. I told them that I knew that I knew they would be ok but they had a choice to look at it as destruction and feed that OR see it as a God breakthrough. I explained that in every situation, GOd allows us to go through to become even stronger and to be immensely blessed!!
Now don’t you know I came home and had to go through myself. The nurse that was to stay with dad tomorrow is having challenges with her car. NO fault of hers. Just circumstances. I know she felt badly and I wanted to cry as I had big plans with some of my children for mother’s day and one of their birthdays.
I had to remind myself of what I had ministered to this young person this morning that was I going to breakdown or was I going to see it as a breakthrough.
After an hour or so I got to see the blessing. God was showing me that each day, our plans need to be His and not ours. That was my breakthrough!! Definitely a GO GOD!!

Are You Getting It?

push ministries are you getting it jills corner

Every morning, I go through the drive and get me an unsweet ice tea with extra ice and extra lemon. Today, I went through and ordered exactly the same and got the reciept. I went to the window and as normal I took a quick sip. It was sweet. Went around and tried again. Took a sip and it was sweet. Third time I went around and it was finally unsweet with no ice.
As I was driving to PUSH I was asking God what was I to get out of this, and this is what I heard. “How many times do you ask for something and people give you what they want you to have and not what you need. You were specific and it took several tries. There was a written reciept, just as I gave a written word but people ignore My word and give you only as they want you to have and don’t follow the instructions on the paper! “
It’s time for people to start truly reading THE instructions and then giving the world their best!

Get Out Of The Way

push ministries get out of the way

There is a post floating around about a meth bust that happened in 2014 with pictures. It was reposted tonight. What was not taken into consideration is that these young people paid a price and many are trying to start new lives. Rev. Larry Cutler from Oldtown Church Galax posted this today which I have to say holds a whole lot of truth:
“When you talk negative about someone you are establishing their past as their present and projecting it into their future, hence YOU become the DEMON that they must resist. As Jesus said to Peter “Get thee behind me SATAN!”
Enough said…………….

Stuck?

push ministries jills corner

We can all be in a dark place at sometime or another and things seem to be stuck. BUT, God always has a way of sending us a sign. This tree looked like there was no hope and look at it now! Good thing we didn’t cut the tree down! There IS still life and life more abundantly. We have to look beyond our eyesight and know that we know God created and God is in control!!

That’s Not My Jesus!

push ministries scream jesus

HOW CAN YOU SCREAM JESUS, and kick your child to the curb, judge people who are different from you, ignore poverty, put up road blocks to stop someone advancing, not let someone in your church that doesn’t smell or dress right, teach your child they are better than others, and Always have to be right.

It’s Up To You

push ministries up to you

Today, a man came in to PUSH needing a few things. I struck up a converstation with him and found he had just been released from prision the day before. He had nothing.
I told him we’d be more than glad to help with whatever we could.
He looked at me and said ma’am, I want to work and I want to be a good father to my son. I’ve been in prision for several years and have a lot of time to make up to him.
He went on further and said, I don’t want anything. I have ALL I need. My freedom is precious right now and I want to get a job and rebuild my family. I’m going to do my part and I know my God will do the rest. My life is up to me!
Prison can be a physical jail cell or it can be an emotional lockdown. It’s so important to know that You have to take the first steps. You have to make choices to move forward. There’s lots of resources. It’s up to you!! ~ Another……..BUT GOD moment!!

Where Is Your Head?

push ministries use your head

How many speak one thing but are afraid to speak what is really on their mind for fear of being critisized or badgered. It’s time to look in the mirror and know that each voice is as important as anyone elses. When one follows, it is like being a prisioner and told what to think and what to do. Leadership, true leadership should empower, not control. Are you a follower or do you know God created you to have your own voice??
