Daily BITUB- "Merry Christmas!"

I was blessed to write this a few years ago...   As it popped up in my feed today I felt I would share it as it seems to apply perfect for this year as it did then.   

Today will be filled with children's smiles... Laughter and probably a few tears : ).  We will rip through gifts and stand in piles of paper. We will eat and drink a lot...  We will play games and tell stories... We will miss those who have gone or not able to visit, but we will honor them by loving them all the more today in our smiles and remembrance of them. Yes we will do many things that will remind us of the beauty in life. We get so busy throughout it all sometimes we miss it though... We miss what it is and what it all can be. So, take a moment to soak it all up. Take a step back and just bask in it. Take a moment to pray for those that don't have it. Take a moment to appreciate it more by hugging tighter, laughing louder, playing longer... Take a moment to give praise to God and to thank Him for these beautiful blessings. Take a moment to say "Happy Birthday" to Jesus for it is His birth that gives us this day.  Take a moment to know that today is as beautiful as you want to make it... So make this moment one of your fondest memories. 

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU... Happy Christmas and may all your blessings come to light.

Daily BITUB- "Don't Give Up!"

Don't give up on them!  Maybe they aren't where you need them to be.  Maybe they are falling short of what you expect.  Maybe...  but ask yourself have you given them all of you?  Have you taken the time to offer your experiences, ideas, and time?  Think about all the moments you could have been cast aside, but someone refused to let you quit! Every day we come across opportunities to throw in the towel.  Every day we come across naysayers, negativity, and doubt. Yet how many times have you fallen short only to have someone finish the drill with you?  How many times have you stepped off the path only to have someone pull you back?  How many times have you forgot your goal only to have someone remind you of why you do what you do?  It happens to all of us, and it happens often.   Take a step back, reassess your priorities, reenergize your dreams and don't give up on those that matter most...  After all how many people have never given up on you?

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- "Point B"

Have you ever found yourself trying to make something happen only to be met with opposition around every corner?  You simply can't figure out why you can't get from point A to B, and try as you might it simply isn't working.  No matter how much you put into it you just end up worn out physically, mentally, and spiritually.  Sometimes the more push-back we get the more we dig in, and lose sight of what we were trying to accomplish in the first place.  We stop strategizing, planning, being logical and we start forcing decisions before we have thought them through.  Sometimes the best move is to simply stop, regroup, and remind yourself of the goal.  Retrace your steps and figure out where you may have taken a wrong turn.  Pull in other people for support, for ideas, and reflect on your past experiences... Often you'll come across things you may have forgotten you already know how to do.  Allow things to unfold, let your plan mature, and tweak as you go. You more than likely will start to see that you are farther along than you think. Once you begin to understand what you know, what you need to learn, and how you can grow from this, chances are you will find yourself already standing at point B.

Daily BITUB- "No Place"

There is no place you can go that God won't be there. Whether you are there physically, mentally, or spiritually He is with you.  From the hardest days, to the quiet moments, to the biggest challenges, to the leaps of faith He is there.  Even the times we question Him, He is there. The times we doubt He is there. The moments where we are weak in faith He holds us up.  The days we forget to give thanks, He waits patiently for us to remember our blessings.  The dark moments we must encounter, He gives us light.  The times we are lost, He knows exactly where we are, and where we are going.  The trials we must face, He faces them with us.  The valleys we must travel, He is there to comfort us.  Even when we refuse to believe He is there waiting until we do.  Every thing we are, is through Him.  There is simply no place God is not present...  No place you can go He is not there. 

"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee whithersoever thou goest." (Joshua 1:8)

Daily BITUB- "Be Prepared"

Ever wake up ready for the day, thankful, happy and excited about the possibilities?  Then out of nowhere our happiness is upended! Nobody goes through the day expecting to be unhappy.  We don't look for reasons or people to bring us down.  Thing is we also don't know who, what, when or where we will run into a negative wall.  If we did we more than likely would change course.  There isn't much we can do to avoid it as inevitably we all have those moments.  What we can do is be prepared as best we can by allowing ourselves to truly hand it over to God.  We must allow ourselves to have faith that He is in control and through Him we will be ok.  It won't be easy, it won't happen instantaneously, but faith tells us it will happen.  It will happen as it should, we will learn, grow, and be better for it!  Then we will pick ourselves up and finish as we started... Thankful, happy, and excited for what tomorrow will bring.

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and have a blessed week!

Daily BITUB- "Nothing's Impossible"

Have you ever faced what you thought was an impossible situation?  You couldn't imagine a way to overcome it or find a way to avoid it.  Those are the situations where you find yourself deciding to accept it or to find it within you to take it on.  It may require you to look at things like you never have.  Maybe it is as simple as making a choice to   change and then being strong enough to stay on that path.  Maybe it's looking at what matters and realizing that you must adjust your priorities, and truly take in what that means to you and those around you.  Maybe it's simply praying for guidance, for wisdom, for an understanding of how you got here and what you must do to move from here.  Every situation we face can seem impossible, but when we really look at it there is always a way.  It's not going to be easy, and it's not going to happen until you make it happen! After all impossible is just another way of saying unbelievable...  For me I choose not to accept that anything is impossible, but instead to Believe in the Unbelievable possibilities of what can be.

Daily BITUB- "Surrounded"

There is something about being surrounded by people you can count on.  The people you know who have faced the challenges in their life head on and persevered.  The ones who refuse to give up, give in, or walk away from whatever comes their way.  Those are the ones that motivate us to push ourselves.  They give us strength by pulling us along and pushing us to exceed our limitations.  They are encouraging when we need it and stern when we need that more.  They refuse to lower an expectation, and their passion for what they do and how they do it resonates throughout everything they take on. Take a look around and ensure that is who you are surrounded by!  Whether it is your team, your co-workers, your friends...  all of them matter and can be the difference in you reaching higher or settling. 

Then take a good long look in the mirror and ask yourself, would you want you to be on your team?  After all if it doesn't start with you where will it start!

Daily BITUB- "Judge and Jury?"

How often have we been quick to come to a conclusion only to found out later we were wrong?  It's easy to do as we live in a world where social media controls opinion and the desire to put out a story first often means there are facts yet to be found. We thrive off information, though we often don't care what information we get or if it is correct.  By the time the rest of the story hits it's often too late.  Even to the point where we have moved on to the next story.  There are so many people, and we have all done it, that feel as if they can be judge and jury. Guess what?  We aren't qualified.  We can have our opinions, we can voice our views, concerns, and beliefs, but that doesn't mean we are right and the other person is wrong.  In fact, what one believes is often a culmination of all the experiences they have had, which often isn't the same ones we have.  Take a step back and think about what you read, what you post, what you share, what you like and "let us not judge one another anymore." (Romans 14:13). Leave that to the most qualified...  God.

Daily BITUB- "Focal Point"

When things get crazy and everything seems to be going awry it's easy to get overwhelmed.  It's even easier to lose that feeling that everything is going to be ok.  When it happens, and it happens to all of us, find your focal point.  Find that one thing that steadies you. Maybe it's your spouse, your children, your friends, family, your desire to reach a goal, your big dream, your past, your present, your vision of the future.  Whatever it is that's God's way of saying, "here is a blessing you can always count on to remind you I am here with you!"  We all have that one thing that brings us back to a point where we can gather ourselves before moving on. That one thing that gives us confidence, reminds us of why we do what we do, provides us the motivation to push on, the calm within the storm. When life gets crazy find it, focus on it, dwell on the beauty of what it means, allow it to comfort and reenergize you... and then carry on!

Daily BITUB- "No Worries"

You are worried.  You wonder if you made the right choices. You think about each move. You think about your strategy.  You go back over your plan step by step. You reflect on the quick decisions you had to make in the moment and the adjustments you had to make afterwards. You wonder if the plan worked, if it is the foundation you'll be able to sustain and grow from.  You think of all the long hours, the early mornings, and the late nights.  You think of the times you prayed for help, for strength, for guidance, for confidence, and for wisdom. 

Then you think...  Whatever happens, wherever this leads you, whatever is to be will be.  You think about faith, what it means to have it, and you realize you made the choices God intended you to make, and you put your worries in His hands.

Daily BITUB- "See The Light"

You want to see that light at the end of the tunnel don't you?  I mean just a little light could make all the difference from you giving up and keeping on.  Thing is, sometimes you can go from one tunnel to the next without even noticing you worked your way through tunnel after tunnel.  Just as you got through those, you will persevere through this one.  As difficult as it may be those tunnels are the gateways to who we are. They provide us insight into our strength, experience for our future, reflections of accomplishment to look back upon in times of despair, and are the building blocks for our character.

 "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. (Romans 12:12).

Remember, if you don't see light at the end of the tunnel...  It's because YOU are the light in the tunnel.

Daily BITUB- "The Perfect Time"

Thankful?  Appreciative?  Humble?  Even when things aren't going like you want them to?  Those are the times that giving thanks should be top of mind.  That's when appreciation of all you've been blessed to experience should be at the forefront. That's when being humble enough to know that where you are today is a gift.  It's easy to be grateful when everything is right.  It's even easier to forget about those moments when things aren't.  We question, we get angry, we doubt.  We don't realize that the valley we are in  will make the peaks that much more beautiful. No matter where you are right now: good, bad, happy, sad, positive, negative... That is the perfect time to give thanks to God for all the things that make up who you are, where you have been, where you'll go, and what you will become.  After all, every blessing starts somewhere.

Daily BITUB- "Enough!"

Enough is enough!  You have to draw the line somewhere!  You have to stand up for you! You have to say it and mean it! You have to say you can't hold me down!  You can't hold me back!  You can't convince me I can't do it!  You can't spread your doubts on me!  I will not accept your limitations and I will not shrink to the challenge!  I won't listen to your discouraging words!  I won't forget about and abandon my dreams!  I won't stop shouting from the rooftops what I believe in, what matters to me, who matters to me, where I want to go, and all the things that motivate me to be more than I was yesterday!  You will not make me lower my expectations!  You will not make me settle, be complacent, and let opportunity pass by!  

Enough is enough!  You have to draw that line! You have to say it and mean it, and sometimes the first person you have to stand up to is YOU!

Daily BITUB- "Fill Your Mind"

If you fill your mind with doubt, worries, sadness, and fear then chances are that is exactly how you'll see everything.  It is how your day will be...  a day riddled with negativity often created by seeing the bad in everything.  In turn if you fill your mind with positive thoughts, confidence, and trust in God then your day is already better, and how you view things suddenly changes.  The obstacles become goals, the adversity becomes a challenge, and you start to see the blessings in all things!  It's our thoughts that control the situation.  It's our thoughts that often influence how others around us look at us, at the situations we are in with them, and the ability to persevere and get through whatever the day may bring.  So fill your mind with prayer, with faith, with hope, with love, and as always believe in the unbelievable possibilities of what can be and Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU! 

Have a blessed day!

Daily BITUB- "Extremes"

Over my life I've been in many situations where I allowed myself to get caught up in extremes.  From one emotion to the next, from one view to the other...  The list could go on and on.  It's not easy to balance yourself in a world where extremes seem to be the norm and the desire for more and more can push us to our limits.  Often it's that desire to have it all that clouds us from appreciating what we do have.  We all need that balance between wanting and needing, from taking and giving, from being open to ideas, but firm in our beliefs.  It's not sometimes, it's most times.  I've come to realize that while we balance one thing we may lose our balance on another.  While that's part of living, it's our trust that faith, prayer, and a belief in God and His strength are very heavy... And as we find ourselves out of balance it is those things that can quickly bring us back to exactly where we should be.  Today and every day let us ask God to "remove far from (us) vanity and lies; give (us) neither poverty nor riches; feed (us) only food sufficient for (us)."- Proverbs 30:8

Daily BITUB- "A New View"

We've all heard that seeing things from a different perspective sometimes helps us be more aware of the situation.  It helps us to look at things in a way we never have.  Thing is, while we may look at it different, unless we think differently, the way in which we look at it won't matter...  We will always see it the same way.   While it may be easier said than done, sometimes we have to completely change our way of thinking.  We have to open ourselves up to new ideas, new techniques, new strategies.  We have to accept that what we have been doing isn't working.  We have to understand that sometimes we don't need to push, but maybe it's time to pull.  Maybe it's time to encourage rather than discourage.  Maybe it's time to take a step back and listen rather than tell.  Like I said, easier said than done, but it can be done.  You may come to find that as you change your way of thinking, all your old ideas, goals, and dreams suddenly are new again!

Daily BITUB- "Pause and Pray"

Most of our days start out in routine.  We go through the motions to get ourselves prepared, and for the most part we know what our day will be like.  We have a plan!  That is of course until something or someone alters that plan.  We can easily be knocked off course and sometimes it's difficult to right the ship...  Especially in those moments we are blindsided and feel unprepared to handle what is thrown in our path.  Thing is we are prepared. Often we miss just how prepared we really are for whatever comes our way.  We talk about faith, but it's these moments where we must call upon it and truly believe that God wouldn't give us something we couldn't handle, nor would He allow us to go at it alone.  If you find yourself spiraling out of control take a moment to pause and pray.  That is probably how you started your day, so why not use it to reset yourself, to balance your thoughts, to regroup, so you can take on whatever you must.  After all it is the experiences we least expect that often remind us of the blessings we sometimes overlook.  

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and have a blessed day!
