Most people have a desire to connect with their true soul
mate. They want to experience that unconditional passion, fire, desire, and fearless love. They
want to be with that one person that stimulates and lights up their life. When this
happen you will not have to give up what you love to connect with them… So why not start with the best relationship...the one with becoming a better YOU!!
When you truly love you, that’s when you will discover your true
soul mate. Why? Because when you love yourself, you will do things for yourself
that make you the best version of YOU. You will sparkle, shine, radiate and
you will attract. Your soul mate will love you for that same reason. Don’t ever
let go of what makes you the best YOU. (Jenna Phillips)
Learning to love you first is the best relationship ever...
Do what makes you happy and makes your soul glow and grow. When you neglect your soul
you will end up lost.
Sometimes this will require pruning off things that no
longer creates value for you.
A lack of identity will cause you to accept what
you really need to eliminate. Your ability to draw clear, hard lines for what
you will & will not tolerate is an act of love of yourself & others
What a masterpiece you are and you will become when you are
connected with the right one. #keepgrowingingrace
10 TOP REASONS TO SMILE
by Mark Stibich, Ph.D.
1. Smiling Makes Us

This is very interesting…Such as life….
Few times than often many marry their true heart or soul mate to live out their dreams such as becoming a home owner, having children, etc. and then live happily ever after, even though they may have had to endure trials and tribulations, they both decided it was worth the fight.
On the other hand...
Sometimes life could be very ironic as it relates to love, life, and relationships. A man falls in love with a woman who has everything he
wants in a wife but he is not ready for commitment, whereas the woman is and cannot wait but gets married to someone else probably, someone she
does not love the way she loves him!
The woman is ready for love and commitment but is approached by the wrong man who do not have the qualities she desires in a mate but they are ready for
marriage whereas the right man seems not to be available. This becomes an issue
of the right person at the wrong time or the wrong person at the right time.
Or, Sometimes it's not about the right or wrong mate but can you be the right mate at the right time
Such is life, Right?
Nevertheless, God’s grace in a man or woman’s life
positions the individual to meet the right person at the right time. Even if
you have missed someone you love, another opportunity will be available for
you. When God is involved in one's life, He ochestrates events and
circumstances to give you the best. Be encouraged and know that God is
arranging someone special for you; just be sensitive to discern and discover who he or she is.
So those of you who have found it..cherish it and those who are still waiting...don't give up on love...let it find you...and when it does...you will know...usually when you least expect it

It takes a lot of courage to Let Go.
Letting Go isn't a sign of weakness but a sign of strength. When we let go, we are simply closing one chapter to begin another.
Some people come in our lives to teach us how to release and let go.
Dropping your child off to their first day of school whether it's elementary or college, a father walking his daughter down the aisle, disconnecting from a relationship that has turned toxic are all forms of letting go.
When letting go, we can reflect on and be thankful for what we had, have, and what's to come.
It doesn't mean that we forget about the lessons, great memories, ignore, or carry negative feelings of anger, rage, or regret. It has nothing to do with quitting, winning, loosing or rehearsing past hurt.
Instead we aught to cherish the memories, overcome, move on, and embrace our future with confidence and an open mind.
Letting go is more about being thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, cry, develop, and grow.
Let go and grow! #Keepgrowingingrace
all have areas that we can use improvement in...whether its our
attitude, health, relationships, character, our business, ministry or
our money... this is essential for growth. #KeepGrowingInGrace
The bible clearly states that, "A tree is known by it's fruit" so we must be producers of fruit. If your tree is not producing fruit, perhaps it needs to be uprooted. No one wants to eat rotten fruit it will make them sick.
cannot coexist. God's true servants and his true leaders live transformed lives by grace, not religion.
The hallmark characteristics of Grace
are forgiveness, redemption, kindness, mercy, goodness, non condemnation, love, & newness.
Some of us have killed people with our religion
& harsh judgements. Some even have faces of stone to match our hearts of stone.
Nothing will kill & break a non Christian seeking GOD or a new babe
in Christ faster than cold, empty, condemning religious people.
A religious man condemns, & is a legalist. A saved man is humble & full of grace
because he knows that he too was a sinner in need of mercy!" ~Sophia Nelson
Our actions can do one or the other...Run people away from God or Draw them closer to God..."And above all things have fervent charity (love) among yourselves: for charity (love) shall cover the multitude of sins...As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace
of God" (1 Peter 4:8,10)
God has made us free moral agents...he gave us the right to choose. In fact he created us so that he can have a family to love on and for that same love to be reciprocated back to him and others, not as robots, but in deed and action.
God didn't give us authority over man but dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:26)
Am I am issuing out a license to dishonor God...Absolutely not...We must continue to plant seeds of love, be the sunlight, and allow God, the word, and Holy Spirit to do the convicting, convincing, and cultivating of the ground (heart)!
When conception of the spirit of truth has taken place in a person's heart...it will yield a peaceable fruit! Let's all continue to #KeepGrowingInGrace
