Give Him praise!

At last we have freedom, for Christ has set us free! We must always cherish this truth and firmly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past.Galatians 5:1!

Hey friends!

Today I just want to praise the Lord for all the good that He has done in my life since I began my walk, but especially, for the blessings He gave me in the last days!

I opened my email just now and this is what I received from the Lord! (I’ve received this devotional weekly):

I am the One who has set you free—free to walk in the higher place before my throne, free to live and dance within my Spirit-Winds, free to laugh in the face of adversity. Everything that could hold you back is now broken off from your life. Be free, my child! Be free!(…) Today, you will begin to understand the freedom I have given you to walk with omnipotence at your side, for I go with you, even until the end of all the ages.”

Really powerful isn’t it?! Came at the right moment, as usual. This past week, I finally received a positive answer for what I was waiting for a while: A new job!

I was really struggling about it, facing a lot of pshycological pressure by all sides, it was a tough time (even though the Lord was providing everything to me). Despite of all the difficulties, the Lord carried me through it and gave me the victory after all!

Like I said in my last post, sometimes we are hoping and waiting on the Lord, but people around us try to push us with coments that makes us feel down! Even when we are believing that God is fighting our battle!

So, if you are struggling on the waiting for an answer, I just want to remind you: What really matters is what God says aboout your situation, not what people say to you, even the closest ones.

Also, bring to your mind all the goodness that God already poured in your life! Be grateful and praise Him, even when the situation seems hopeless.

It is in times like this that He raises up His hand and rescues us! Don’t be bitter or doubt of His faithfulness!

When we praise Him and give Him all the glory, the doors of grace opens up for us and we receive all the blessings we need, at the right time! God is never late.

I know that is hard to keep the right perspective sometimes, being patient and don’t complaining, but this is what He is expecting from us: A good, grateful attitude, no matter what!

Raise up a new song today, despite of your situation,and watch God change your circumstances right before your eyes.

He loves you and He will do it! And when He does that, don’t forget to share your joy and give Him all the glory!

Take care friends, see you next time =)

The Lord replied[a] to them:

I am sending you grain, new wine and olive oil,
    enough to satisfy you fully;
never again will I make you
    an object of scorn to the nations.

20 “I will drive the northern horde far from you,
    pushing it into a parched and barren land;
its eastern ranks will drown in the Dead Sea
    and its western ranks in the Mediterranean Sea.
And its stench will go up;
    its smell will rise.”

Surely he has done great things!
21     Do not be afraid, land of Judah: be glad and rejoice.
Surely the Lord has done great things!
22     Do not be afraid, you wild animals,
    for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green.
The trees are bearing their fruit;
    the fig tree and the vine yield their riches.
23 Be glad, people of Zion,
    rejoice in the Lord your God,
for he has given you the autumn rains
    because he is faithful.
He sends you abundant showers,
    both autumn and spring rains, as before.
24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain;
    the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.”

Change your mindset and be SUCESSFUL!

How can a normal person, living a “normal life” be sucessful in this present (or any other) scenario?!

The step number one we need to take to experience a real change in our lives is learn to think with the right mindset!

In times of scarcity and pessimism, only those who dare to think differently will do something GREAT out of the chaos!

It is not a easy task, because we were taught to think in certain ways during our lives and most of the people lives by the”law of minimum effort”! Doing everything in auto mode!

However, there are many people out there deciding to be bold and brave! They are figuring out how to make history while everybody else are waiting for a”better tomorrow”!

Do you want to be one of those(bold) people?!

Instead of thinking “I can’t deal with this situation” choose to think “What can I do to handle this situation?” If there is something you can do,do it!

If there is nothing that you can do to change it, just let it go! Choose to keep your inner peace and stability!

When you are tempted to think “I can’t do this” in the face of a challenge, choose to think ” This is hard but I can prepare myself to do this, I can handle this challenge, I have been through difficult situations before!”

Life is tough, deal with people is hard but the most difficult thing we need to learn is HOW TO DEAL WITH OURSELVES! How to manage our burdens, feelings and thoughts!

We can’t put the responsability of our happiness and sucess on another person or in “if that thing happens someday”.

It is OUR RESPONSABILITY to take control of our FUTURE, our choices and reactions!

Choose to think that you are CAPABLE to make your goals happen! Choose to believe that even that you are just a “normal person” that does not means that you can’t be sucessful in your life!

All the men and women who did something great in this world was or is just regular person, who learned to think outside of the box! You can do the same.

Stablish your goals, your dreans in medium and long terms and go for it! It will be hard sometimes, but remember that despite of what you will do in your life, the time will run out anyway.

Decide to do something meaningful, something that will make you grow in your life, cause it will pass(anyway) very fast before your eyes!

Be GRATEFUL! Say grace for TODAY, for your family, for your health and for everything that you received in this life. Gratitude makes wonders for your psychological health and also for your body!

Don’t collect sorrows and ressentments! Forgive those who have hurted you! This is a GIFT for you, it is not about them.Don’t forget that!

We are living in a great opportunity to revalue our priorities and mindset! Use your time WISELY!

Take every moment of quiteness that you have to invest in a new way of thinking, in discover something great for your life, to enjoy more what you love to do!

Choose to look to this scenario like a great opportunity, not a tragedy!

Have courage to believe in you, to believe that still has beauty and goodness in this world, despite of every bad thing that happens!

For those who have the boldness to innovate, this is not the end. It’s JUST THE BEGINNING, of the rest of their lives!

Mude a sua MENTALIDADE e seja bem-sucedido!

Como uma “pessoa normal” vivendo uma “vida normal” pode ser bem-sucedida nesse presente (ou qualquer outro) cenário?

O passo número um que precisamos dar para experimentar uma mudança real em nossas vidas é aprender a adotar a mentalidade certa!

Em tempos de escassez e pessimismo, apenas aqueles que ousam pensar de maneira diferente farão algo GRANDE, independente do caos!

Não é uma tarefa fácil, porque fomos ensinados a pensar de certas maneiras durante nossas vidas e a maioria das pessoas vive pela “lei do mínimo esforço”! Fazendo tudo no modo automático!

No entanto, existem muitas pessoas por aí que decidiram ser ousadas e corajosas! Elas estão descobrindo como fazer história enquanto todo mundo está esperando por um “amanhã melhor”!

Você quer ser uma dessas pessoas corajosas?!

Em vez de pensar “Não posso lidar com esta situação”, opte por pensar “O que posso fazer para lidar com essa situação?” Se houver algo que você possa fazer, faça-o!

Se não houver nada que você possa fazer para alterar isso, deixe pra lá! Escolha manter sua paz e estabilidade internas!

Quando você for tentado a pensar “Não posso fazer isso” diante de um desafio, escolha pensar “Isso é difícil, mas eu posso me preparar para fazer isso, posso lidar com esse desafio, já passei por situações difíceis antes! “

A vida é dura, lidar com as pessoas é difícil, mas a coisa mais difícil que precisamos aprender é COMO LIDAR COM NÓS MESMOS! Como administrar nossos fardos, sentimentos e pensamentos!

Não podemos colocar a responsabilidade de nossa felicidade e sucesso em outra pessoa ou em “se isso ou aquilo acontecer algum dia”.

É NOSSA RESPONSABILIDADE assumir o controle do nosso FUTURO, das nossas escolhas e reações!

Escolha pensar que você é capaz de fazer seus objetivos acontecerem! Escolha acreditar que, mesmo que você seja apenas uma “pessoa normal”, isso não significa que você não poderá ter sucesso em sua vida!

Todos os homens e mulheres que fizeram algo de bom neste mundo foram ou são apenas pessoas comuns, que aprenderam a pensar fora da caixa! (Assim como esse cara da foto, Richard Branson! Pesquise sobre sua história!)

Você pode fazer o mesmo!

Estabeleça seus objetivos, seus sonhos em médio e longo prazos e siga em frente! Às vezes será difícil, mas lembre-se de que, independente do que você escolher fazer em sua vida, o tempo correrá de qualquer maneira, então escolha fazer algo significativo!

Decida fazer algo que fará você crescer na vida, porque ela passará rapidamente diante dos seus olhos!

Seja grato! Diga obrigado por hoje, por sua família, por sua saúde e por tudo que você recebeu nesta vida. A gratidão faz maravilhas para a sua saúde psicológica e também para o seu corpo!

Não colecione mágoas e ressentimentos! Perdoe aqueles que te machucaram! Este é um PRESENTE para você, não é sobre eles. Não se esqueça disso!

Estamos vivendo uma grande oportunidade de reavaliar nossas prioridades e mentalidade! Use seu tempo com SABEDORIA!

Aproveite cada momento de tranquilidade que você tem para INVESTIR em uma nova maneira de pensar, em descobrir algo INCRÍVEL para sua vida, para aproveitar mais daquilo que você é apaixonado por fazer!

Escolha olhar para esse cenário como uma grande oportunidade, não uma tragédia!

Tenha coragem de acreditar em você, acreditar que ainda tem beleza e bondade neste mundo, apesar de tudo que acontece!

Para quem tem a ousadia de inovar, esse não é o fim! É apenas o começo, do resto de suas vidas!
