How to Respond to Naysayers

Naysayers

Naysayers are those people that try to talk you out of your dreams or tell you that your vision for something is too big. The actual definition is; one who denies, refuses, opposes, or is skeptical or cynical about something. How do you respond to these people?

It is very discouraging to share your vision with others and they tell you all the reasons why it is impossible. As soon as you finish talking you see a shift in their body and attitude; then here comes the list. You need money to that, when will you have the time, someone is already doing that, you’re too old to change careers, and the list goes on. Sometimes the naysaying is not verbal, but you can see it in their actions; they don’t share in your joy, they change the subject whenever you bring it up, or they aren’t sharing your products with others.

The Image of God

Image

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. -Genesis 1:27-

When God created mankind, He created us in his image. He made sure to identify that He was referring to both male and female so that there was no confusion as to who He was specifically talking to. An image is a likeness of a person so therefore when God created us, he created us to be like Him. Read More

Part 3- We Got the Keys!!!

Before I really get into this post, I feel it is important to say that uncertainty, trials, and tribulations are all a part of life, so embrace them and know that there is something good on the other side of all that.

August 31, moving day! This was the day we packed our belongings into a storage unit and moved into the extended stay hotel. When we packed our life into the storage, we still didn’t have a final approval from the lender, but I was still operating in faith. The lender asked me to do some things to improve my credit score so that I could get a better rate and I did everything she asked, and my score dropped. No one could explain to me why this happened, but it did and here I was once again filled with so much doubt and so many unanswered questions. Read More

God is Good Even When it Isn’t Good

Psalm 34:1-I will bless the Lord at all time his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Prayer and praise are two different things; prayer means to petition, and praise means to glorify. To bless God is to recognize his power, strength, and his graciousness. In our praise we are saying I know who you are God, I know you can, and I know you will.

Last year, November 5, I posted on my Facebook “I stopped saying please God and started saying thank you God. I was practically begging God to change some things in my life. When I moved from begging God to thanking Him, I started to see a shift in my life. Matthew 6 tell us not to worry, that this does not add a single hour onto our life; but this is how I lived, I prayed and then I worried. Now I no longer worry, and I give God the praise, rather it is good or bad. Read More

The Middle-Faithing It (Part 2)

Tuesday, July 16, 2019, was hard; worry, doubt, and fear kicked in all at once. I sat at my desk completely overwhelmed with my thoughts; maybe the hotel was unsafe, maybe my goals were unrealistic, what if it didn’t work out as planned. Negative scenario after negative scenario kept playing over and over again in my head. My head was hurting and my heart was racing. My focus was non-existent; I just needed the day to be over with.
