Inspirational Injections


Fighting for your dreams isn’t always easy – but it’s worth it – and so are you!! Yes, You Deserve “The Best” (whatever that means to you)! Whatever our definition of The Best is – the Universe offers it and we must BE Worthy enough to receive it!!

GOD is ALREADY aware of our worth – which is why “He” gave us these desires in the first place. {Psalm 37:4} It is ALWAYS GO(o)D Wisdom to remind ourselves, that we are worthy of the things – that we desire most in life.

Especially when our dreams, goals, desires, needs or wants seem impossible; and hard to come by. It is during those times that we must FIGHT FOR OUR DREAMS!!  Remember:  YOU ARE WORTHY!! And in the good fight of fight – there will be times that we – are required to fight – even though our best desires are ALREADY ours. Sounds like a contradiction but it’s not.  Life is a paradox; and when we put of fight – God “begins to fight for us” (for lack of a better term).  {Exodus 14:14 / 2 Chronicles 20:17}  

“Fight for your dreams, and your dreams will fight for you!” ~Paulo Coelho

The whole wisdom  🔑🔑 is this: Never settle for nothing less, count yourself out or play yourself small – and be willing to fight for what – you’re Worthy For!!! NOTE: This doesn’t prove anything to God – only Yourself!!!

Today’s Winning Affirmation:I AM Worthy of All my Dreams and Desires!”

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • Deuteronomy 20:4 (NIV)For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.

I AM Purpose!

Purpose is our DNA. In other words, Purpose – like ACTION – is a predetermined manifested state. For example, you don’t purposely do stuff, so that you would be human – BEING human is who you are – it is ALREADY in the creation genetic code that God would make you after “His” image.

So why do we constantly do stuff, to validate our “purpose” or seek out reason(s) for BEING here?! The simple answer is: because we don’t know who we are, or better yet, whose we are. Again, we are purposes of God…Specifically and purposely designed, to carry out the Will of God in our lives.

If we truly desire to ‘find our purpose’ (for lack of a better term) – then we must first discover who we are – and then we will discover our purpose. And here’s a hint: Our Whole Life Expression and Purpose for Living isTo Give God Glory (or better said, to Give God back the Glory that “He” has given us)!!! That’s All!!

Anything, other than – Giving God Glory – is not who you are; nor were you “meant” or “purposed” to become! We in our very essence: ARE THE GLORY OF (unto) GOD!

Ecclesiastes 3:1 – surmises that there is a time for EVERY Purpose under Heaven – and – it is YOU that is that Purpose!!! Quick Question: Is It Your Time?! Only YOU can answer that question; and you do so by the way – in which you “choose” to live your life.

Now, it’s time to turn this knowledge – into ACTION (living wisdom) – by living life as a Purpose; and BEing that which we ALREADY are: The Glory of God!

Today’s Winning Affirmation:I AM Purpose Expressed in Human Form!”

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • John 17:5-26 (NIV)And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.
  • Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

I AM….Celebrated by the Universe

Whether we believe it or not – there is a ‘Cloud of Witnesses’ cheering us on so that we can reach our goals, dreams, desires and destinations. It is important that we remember this; especially during those times when we don’t get the support, we’re looking for – from our friends and family. We should also keep in mind, that GO(o)D is IN us! And has – and – ALWAYS WILL have our back! 

David encouraged himself in the Lord! This is the Power of I AM! I AM is not only a personal statement of our BEING – but it signifies and directly points to – the God that is within us! Again, I AM is NOT just about me(us) – it is about God with me(us)!!!

So go ahead Kings and Queens – celebrate yourself – if no one else will celebrate or encourage you. Remember, you are not alone! You and God make a powerful team; and are a force to be reckoned with. Also take into consideration: King David, Moses, Abraham, Matthew, Paul…etc. – and – we dare not leave out Jesus; all of these are examples of GOD HAVING THEIR BACK! If “He” did it for them, surely “He” WILL do the same for us(in fact it’s ALREADY done)!!

Therefore, take those blessed hands of yours, reach up….and then pat yourselves on the back (encourage yourself) – knowing, that as you do – you are receiving help and support from the Universe! Because what this simple act ACTUALLY means is: THAT THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE PATTING YOU ON THE BACK (after all it is GOD that is IN and WITH You – and don’t you EVER forget it)!!! 

Today’s Winning Affirmation:I AM Surrounded, Encouraged and Celebrated by the Universe!”

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • 1 Samuel 30:6 (KJV) – And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.
  • Hebrews 12:1 (CJB) – So then, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us, too, put aside every impediment — that is, the sin which easily hampers our forward movement — and keep running with endurance in the contest set before us….

Arise & Shine

The main reason, God woke you up this morning – was for you to honor “Him”. Paradoxically, we honor God – by making the most of ourselves. It is vital that we follow these 10 “rules” on a consistent, habitual and daily basis:  

  • Wake up Early & Get Up On Time!
  • Always Give Thanks (First to God and then to Others)!
  • Arrive 15 Minutes Early to any scheduled appointment (i.e. job, meeting, date…etc.)
  • Consciously take Care of “Your” Body (which is God’s Temple): Exercise, Drink Plenty of Water, Eat Healthy Breakfast…etc.
  • Visualize and Meditate on Todays Successes
  • Take on the “Tough Challenges” First!
  • Make a conscious effort to laugh
  • Proactively share and give to others
  • Remain Focused!
  • Reinforce “your Light” through daily affirmations and making a habit of practicing the 9 aforementioned principles! 

At first glance, these “things” may seem selfish or personal at best. However, if we take for instance: taking good care of your body – means that (1) you can better serve others when you – yourself is fit; and (2) (without being too judgy) people who DON’T take care of themselves are actually being selfish – because then they have to rely on your energy and light when their body begins to fail them. 

Just something to consider!

Today’s Winning Affirmation: “I AM My Own Sacred Light! And I Honor the GOD that’s Within Me!” 

Scripture(s) for Today: 

  • Isaiah 60:1 (KJV) – Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. 
  • Matthew 5:16 (KJV) – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Our Preventive Maintenance Plan

Life doesn’t happen to us – life happens through us. Most of what happens in our life could have been prevented. Nothing happens just “all of the sudden” — there are signs along the way that tell us, that this person is no good for us; but we try to make it work and stick it out anyway. That the foods we crave might not be a good option for our health; but we eat them anyway. 

Again (and this is worth repeating) there’s no such thing as “…all of the sudden” or “out of the blue”…”out of nowhere…” etc. — NOTHING happens Suddenly. There is ALWAYS a sign, warning or indicator that s person, situation or thing is – the way that is is. However, because many of us are distracted, we don’t play close enough attention to them. 

The check engine light comes on before a vehicle stops operating; and the low fuel light will illuminate when you’re low on gas. So many times we disregard these signs, thinking we can get by until the next tune up, or we make it few more exists before we refuel. For the most part we do get away or get by it — but why leave it to “chance”?! 

We shouldn’t wait until our car breaks completely down, before we have to have it towed to the mechanic – or wait until we’re completely out of gas before we put gas in our cars. Neither should we wait until things, and circumstances become completely “bad” – before we pray. Praying without ceasing is preventive maintenance for our Souls. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (ESV) – Pray without ceasing / Luke 18:1 (AMP) – Now Jesus was telling the disciples a parable to make the point that at all times they ought to pray and not give up and lose heart

Prayer maintains our connection to God as our Source. So it is vital that this becomes a daily habit. Now I’m not here to tell you what or how to pray: For instance, affirmations are a form of prayer, meditations are a form of prayer, and the “greatest” (in my opinion) form of prayer is that of praise! — My only advice is that you do, what resonates with you; and that you do this often! 

In this way, prayer doesn’t become a “quick fix” or some type of manipulation to get God to do something on our behalf. If we make prayer habitual, it will become our lifestyle, and it is in this lifestyle that prevents not only our Soul from breaking down — but stops “bad” things for happening in the first place.

Action Equals Success

“Failed plans should not be interpreted as a failed vision. Visions don’t change, they are only refined. Plans rarely stay the same, and are scrapped or adjusted as needed. Be stubborn about the vision, but flexible with your plan.” – John C. Maxwell

Luke 14:28-29 (Complete Jewish Bible) – [28] “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Don’t you sit down and estimate the cost, to see if you have enough capital to complete it? [29] If you don’t, then when you have laid the foundation but can’t finish, all the onlookers start making fun of you…

I AM: The Light of the World!

The Hebrews prophets, with their perfect knowledge of the Supreme Law, always related outward events to inward thought…The knowledge of the causal power of thought is the basis of all their prophecies, as it is the basis of all real wisdom and power. ~James Allen

YOUR TRUE SENSE OF SELF: Marianne Williams {The Law of Divine Compensation}

On the mortal plane, none of us are perfect all the time. But on the spiritual plane, all of us are perfect all the time. Who we really are – perfect creations of God, unchangeable and unlimited, none of us more or less brilliant than anyone else – is the most positive self-concept possible. To self-identify according to your spiritual rather than material reality is enlightenment.

From this perspective, you see that you are the light. No thought or condition of darkness – that is, lovelessness in your own mind or in anyone else’s – has any bearing whatsoever on the truth of who you are or what the universe has planned for you. Your past, your mistakes, other people’s opinions about you, even your failures do not in any way limit who you are or what is possible for you now….All of us carry the mark of God, yet we carry that mark as one. No one has any more or less capacity than anyone else to be used as a conduit for the genius that pours forth constantly from the Mind of God.

This genius pours into us as one, but is accepted by us separately. God’s greatness is a gift that is offered to all of us, but it’s our choice whether or not to receive it. We lack faith in what exists within us because we lack faith in Who exists within us. You are a child of God, carrying the eternal mark of your perfect Source. You are naturally entitled to miracles because love is what you are. This is not an arrogant appraisal of the ego, but rather a humble acceptance of God’s truth. You just happen to have within you the eternal power of the universe.  

—> Matthew 5:14-16 (Complete Jewish Bible)

14 “You are light for the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Likewise, when people light a lamp, they don’t cover it with a bowl but put it on a lampstand, so that it shines for everyone in the house.

16 In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they may see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven. 

—> John 8:12 (English Standard Version) – Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I AM the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” 

—> 1 John 1:5-6 (KJV)

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

Armed with this incredible piece, we can proclaim and affirm as Jesus did: 
“I AM The Light of The World” and then begin to live and operate this Divine Truth as an ACTION in our lives!

Bring Forth Fruit That Is Meet

As of late, I’ve found myself having a desire to feel better and to add to the quality of my life. For this to take place, it is imperative that I get back in shape. Believe it or not, there was a time in my life, where I had less than 5% body fat, ran (not jogged) at least 3 miles every day, and still have plenty of energy to go to work, plus do everything else I wanted to do.  

However, after a very long hiatus of many, many years of inactivity (other than the once a year personal tradition of jogging/walking the Peachtree Road Race) – I now, find myself gasping for air after walking only a few blocks; and to make matters worse, this only a couple times a week! There was a time, when I could eat and drink anything I wanted – and my metabolism would dissolve it very quickly – now my stomach is overlapping my beltline regardless of how healthy I eat!  

I literally, have to “get in shape” in order to get back in shape! I know it sounds like an oxymoron – but, because I “let myself go” and didn’t keep up with maintaing a healthy body…I now find myself soooo far out of shape – that I have to build myself up in order carry out the simplest demands placed upon my body.

This is probably, what John meant when he said, “bring forth fruit meet for repentance” {Matthew 3:8} Of course, as it is often said, “Timing is everything” {Ecclesiastes 3:13}; and during this season in particular God is “calling” for REPENTANCE! Not only as a nation, but individually as well.

Repentance is an opportunity to return back to God. To restore everything that was seemingly lost (both spiritually and materially), and to remove the blockages that hinder our connection with God.

However, we must “get in shape spiritually” (bring forth fruit) in order to get back in shape – or in this sense – in order to bring about true and lasting repentance. Simply stated, we must get in shape, in order to get BACK in shape. What do I mean?

Well, it’s been said, that to repent means to change one’s mind. But, I say, that to repent means to change one’s State of Being entirely. For this type of repentance to take place, we MUST change our mindset (bringing forth fruit) – so that our soul and spirit is united back with God (meet for repentance). Likewise, me walking a few blocks twice a week probably get me back to where I used to be. However, it does prepare my mind and body to exert itself more until I eventually get to that place (bring forth fruit meet…). For me to get back at least half-way where I was years ago physically, I must undergo I radical change in my mindset. I must not look for an easy way out. I must consciously examine what I eat and drink. And I MUST prepare my mind so that my body will follow.

This must also take place in the spirit for us to REPENT! This, however, is not an easy process! Bringing forth the fruit of a changed mind and renewed spirit means embarking on the ever so dreaded self-examination process. {2 Corinthians 13:5} This inward examination process includes (but not limited to):

  • Looking back over the course of this year and seeing how many people we offended (whether intentionally or not)!
  • Did we mistreat, or use anybody to fulfill our own selfish wants and desires?
  • Did we GIVE our tithes (not just in a typical sense – but did we feed or visit the “poor” or those in need)?
  • Were we disobedient to God’s direction for OUR lives (not someone else – remember my ACTION is King!)?
  • Were we impeccable with our word? Meaning, did we promise to do something and not come through?

…or any other thing that comes to mind, that appears to separate us from our Creator!

But, please take note (and this is very important!): Even in during this season of self-examination, we still must do it cheerfully and with gratitude! {Psalm 100:2A} Real repentance is not in our tears, what we regret, or in feeling sorry for ourselves. Repentance is a season where we can become fully aware that we are and will always be ONE WITH GOD:

  • Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV) – Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. 
  • Romans 8:38-39 (KJV)

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

True repentance means not seeking God’s Hand (what “He” can do for us) – but, seeking God’s Face (Being in “His” Presence); so we must be truthful with ourselves. {Psalm 101:7} Attempting to run a marathon when, I currently can’t even walk a couple of blocks is fooling myself. Getting back to this point will be a painful and arduous process. 

Just remember God didn’t move it is us who changed. 

2 Peter 3:9 (NIV) – The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 

Just as in the physical sense, whipping our spiritual bodies back into shape is difficult at first, but the rewards far outweigh the struggle…we just have to keep at it..until as it says, in Psalm 16:11(English Standard Version): You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore! 

Now, Let’s Get BACK To Where We Know We’re Supposed To BE!!

See Yourself As GO[o]D Sees You: Know Your Worth!

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill.

In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”

Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 bill to one of you – but first, let me do this.”

He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked “who still wants it”?” Still the hands were up in the air.

“Well,” he replied, “what if I do this?” He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. “Now, who still wants it?”

Still the hands went in the air.

“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20!”

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by… WHO WE ARE!! But, more so than that, paradoxically, the more we esteem God, the more we will value ourselves! Not just who we are – but rather who we are IN GOD!! 

So for today let’s affirm as it says in Psalm 139:14 (the Complete Jewish Bible Version): 

I thank you because I AM awesomely made, wonderfully; your works are wonders — I know this very well.
