Happy first day of May! I hope your Sunday morning has been relaxed with your cozy slippers, hot coffee and you are setting your mindset for the upcoming week. We are blessed with a new day, new week and new month. Let this morning be the glorious start of many. I cannot wait to dive into this post with you. I am so happy you are here with me today.Let’s start by opening up our minds with some questions…

Did you know that one of the most important words in the English language is relationship?

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by not only your own emotion and thoughts, but of others as well?

That mind game battle can be self consuming. With me, as you know, my battles in my head have been self image and relationships. Last night I decided to have a night of my own by taking the longest shower ever, making myself some peppermint tea, lighting a sweet smelling candle, and reading one of my new favorite books that I can’t wait to share with you. Within that self reflection time, I couldn’t help but process all of the relationships in my life, including all the one’s I worry about, the one’s I can’t forget about and the one’s that I haven’t even experienced yet. After my alarm clock rang at 8:00am, as it always does, I still had those thoughts. After my dress was put on, hair was curled and oatmeal was eaten, I kept pondering what God would want me to hear at church today. Sitting in my car in the church parking lot by myself, I bowed my head and asked the Lord to open my heart and mind to what He needed me to hear this morning. After receiving a warm welcome and finding my seat, I looked down at our pamphlet and it read, “Four Keys to Godly Relationships”. There I was knowing God was answering my prayer I just prayed five minutes ago. I invite you to listen to this sermon by Dr. Steve Rice that reminded me no person or relationship has spiritual perfection. Below are the four key points he reminded of today…

  • Find the good in people-
    • Remember the best and forget the rest
    • LIFE IS NOT AIRBRUSHED- we cannot shape other people’s walks with the Lord. It can take a lifetime to become like Jesus because none of our spiritual walks are perfect.
    • When I first started my personal walk with the Lord, I started to judge the people around me I cared for because I thought they were walking more slowly and that scared me. I wish I could go back and change how I handled that situation because one’s personal relationship with the Lord comes first, then your relationship with that person comes second.
  • Practice positive praying
    • Pray with joy
    • We all need prayer and practice
  • Be patient with the progress of others
    • Everyone’s spiritual growth is different
  • Let God help us love people
    • There will always be people who are difficult to love but we are asked to love one another like He loves us.

May is your month beautiful to make positive changes! Make every moment count. I believe in you.
