Sometimes we forget how much strength we have. We forget what we are capable of and how much we have already endured. If you are feeling lost, confused, undecided just go back to the basics. Remember who you are. Remember the things you have already overcome. You got this as you had that, and in all things trust that God has it all. 

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU.  Have a safe, healthy, and blessed day all!


Thank you Christie Mayer BlackCreations from the Heart, for another beautiful design. Always inspiring to see how you interpret the words of Believe In The Unbelievable and setting "Little DC" (Little Boy, Big Dreams) on his next adventure.

Daily BITUB- “God is Great- All the time”

I am understanding more and more what it means to trust in God's timing not our own. It can be frustrating and things don't always pan out as we planned. We wish things were a certain way sometimes, but there are reasons for everything. We may not see it, want it, or even accept it in that moment, but one day it will make sense. God will speed us up when necessary. He will slow us down when we can't do it ourselves. He helps us reflect, appreciate, and pause to see what's around us. He gives us blessings we sometimes don't understand. Those blessings in disguise we sometimes argue we want, until the moment we realized instead He gave us what we needed. He closes doors and opens others. He places people in our path so that we may learn, grow, give, get, experience. He helps us walk the narrow paths, travels with us into the unknown, reminds us of the familiar, and carries us in faith when we feel we can't go at it on our own. Yes, we forget that sometimes. We take it for granted other times. We make promises in moments we need Him, and forget to give thanks when all is well. Yet, He is there. We must remember that He never waivers in His love for us, and in that nor should we. "Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!" (Psalm 106:1)

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you keep the faith in all things, for God is great ALL the time.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “As long as you notice.”

Who cares if they don't notice? You are doing things right to be better. You are trying to eat better. You stopped drinking so much. You are spending more time with your family. You are reading more to better understand the power of self development. You are studying your craft. You are visiting family. You are changing your priorities to match what matters most to you. You are doing your best to be a better friend. You are putting in the hours at work because you want to lead by example and serve others. You are sharing your story with those that need to hear it. You are giving all you can. You are focusing on the big picture by paying attention to the small details. You are taking the walks you said you would to reflect. You are taking your experiences and using them to build bridges for others and to ensure you grow from those moments. You are giving tough love where you need to give it, and paying attention to those that care enough to do the same for you. You are laughing more. You are crying more. You are doing your best to not overlook the beauty in a sunrise and the satisfaction of making it to another sunset. Don't get so wrapped up in hoping others see you. You are doing it for you. You are doing it because it's right. You are doing it for those you love and live for. Who cares if they don't notice. As long as you do. Keep doing it. 

If nobody tells you today… I will. It matters.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you realize your worth. You understand the beauty in the blessings and gifts God has given you. You appreciate it all by continuing to evolve, to grow, to making the most out of every day and every possibility the day can bring. 

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy week everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Happiness and Love”

What is your heart telling you?  

How often do we suppress that in fear people won't understand, support or allow us to feel what we feel? We spend so much time trying to make everyone happy we forget that happiness can't exist in a place where honesty isn't part of the foundation. Those that matter most to us often find happiness within the same place we do. In knowing the other has found their happiness. You can't do that if you don't share what truly makes you happy. Trust your heart, be open to the possibilities of experiencing life and allowing those you live for to share it with you. Express your feelings, shout from the rooftops, profess your faith, follow your dreams and do it with all of you all the time. God's beautiful gift of life is all a part of the things we love, in the places we cherish, within the blessings in our lives and in the unbelievable moments we allow our heart to experience, and to share with those we love the most.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you grow with others. You show the ones you love you do. You give thanks for the beauty in moments that you get to share, care, and give of yourself, and every chance you get to do that you do.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Have Faith”

"Have Faith"

I sat with someone yesterday who said they were challenged to go beyond the things they didn't know. They simply believed it wasn't something they could handle. They felt like the uncertainty of the unknown was scary. Well, of course it is. I've met people who said if they had a choice they would go back to a mundane, unproductive, unsatisfying life because they knew what to expect rather than get out of their comfort zone. That feeling of stability can far outweigh the challenges of pushing yourself, and makes us shy away from the possibilities of what could be. What we overlook in those moments is our faith. It is that simple. You already have what you need to face tomorrow. Yes, you may need to study, work harder, push beyond limitations, make some life changes, move away from the easy road and challenge yourself to take that road less traveled. The uncharted territory of what we don't know is where our faith lights the way. It's God's plan for us we must focus on, and know that wherever we are headed He is already there. You got this. "If you lose faith, you lose all." (Eleanor Roosevelt)

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you know God has you. You need not shy away from things you want to try. You need not fear pushing yourself and putting yourself out there. Have faith and trust in it. 

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “In an Instant”

Life can change in an instant. An instant. It's so important to realize what that really means. That our ability to enhance one another's lives through good deeds, kindness, appreciation shouldn't be something we strive for every now and then. Telling those we love that we do shouldn't be an afterthought. Getting after and hustling after your dreams and goals shouldn't be something you put off until tomorrow. Start sharing your joy. Start sharing your thoughts, your experiences, your talents. Start paying attention to what others bring to the table. Listen to others share their experiences. Give your undivided attention to your kids and your person every chance you get. Take the vacation and unplug. Stay up late and watch the movie. Get up early and read, meditate, workout, pray. Visit your friends and family. Stop holding grudges. Stop worrying what others think of you. Laugh out loud. Play outside. Let yourself love someone unconditionally and let them love you back. Tell God you need Him. Do all the things that you are putting off. Do them now. Don't waste the opportunity. Life can change in an instant.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you live each day knowing you did all you could to actually live it.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy week everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Forgiveness”

Have you done something you aren't proud of? Have you been unkind? Maybe you said something to someone you wish you wouldn't have. Maybe you talked behind someone's back. Have choices you've made hurt others? Those things are heavy. Heavy on our hearts and minds, and must be righted. I read once we can't be ok with God, or ourselves, unless we are right with others. I know it isn't always easy to take the higher road or be the bigger person, but when we are wrong we must admit it. We must ask for forgiveness or it will pull us down and show up when we least expect it. Life is too short for grudges, to live with hurt, to not forgive, to not offer a hand of peace, to not say "I'm sorry". Don't  lose precious time with those in your life that matter because you are to proud to apologize. Sit down and work it out. Say the the things you need to say before you can't. Today is as good day as any.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you know God has already forgiven you. He has forgiven others. He died so that we may live. Lay down the burdens, give thanks for the blessings to forgive and be forgiven. Continue to ask in His name, "Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us." (Matthew 6:12)

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy weekend everyone.

Daily BITUB- “I Wish”

"When pride comes then comes dishonor, but with the humble is wisdom." Proverbs 11:2

Everyone at some point goes through that state of wishing. 

I wish I had more money.
I wish I had a bigger house.
I wish I had a better car. 
I wish I had a better job. 

Thing is as we allow that type of wish list to grow we easily transform a good life into a world of self pity and a relentless pursuit of never being satisfied. We become full of a false sense of success in that our "things" are better than someone else's, and then we start to lack discernment when we come across someone who has better "things" than us. We stop working to be better people, making better use of our time, enlightening ourselves through the non material beauty of good books, nature, quality moments with those that matter most, and time with God. We start to get so cloudy we miss out on the small moments God places in our lives. We have a pride in us that constantly wishes to be prouder, but we just can't figure out why we can't get there… Until we do. Until we sit back and look at the real gifts, achievements, people, memories, and blessings that we have acquired throughout our journey. We get to appreciate it every day, and hopefully feel the absolute joy in having the opportunity to not have to wish for moments we can create right here and now. 

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you find beauty in the life you have and joy in every moment you are blessed with along the way.

Daily BITUB- “Listen to Yourself”

Listen to yourself. Your body tells you when it needs rest and when things aren't right. Your mind tells you when to think and how to assess situations. Your heart tells you what you feel and what really matters to you. Nobody knows you quite like you do. You can fight it, but it catches up. We all have things that need to get done, but it's also ok to let yourself catch a breath. When we are so worn down physically, mentally, and spiritually we stop doing what we know to do. We start cutting corners. We stop making smart decisions. We are short with people. We stop paying attention to our attitude, our words, our thoughts and things can begin to snowball. We create a viscous cycle of wrong turns and find ourselves creating our own obstacles. Just stop. Take the moment to understand the situation. See it for what it is, realize where you are, and visualize where you want to go. You don't have to be there tomorrow, but commit to the direction you want and head that way. Every step is that much closer and understanding you are in control of what resides in your body, your mind, and your heart gives you the control over what gets to happen next. 

Just listen to yourself.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you listen to the good that is in your head. You feel the positive that surrounds you. You give yourself the moments you need to gather the strength you already have. Then simply go and give the rest to God.

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.

Daily BITUB- “Shine”

"Shine"

It's such a big school. Such a big company. Such a big world. Yes it is and so it's easy to feel like your individual contribution is not significant. Easy to feel that you can't, won't and shouldn't make a difference, and so some make the determination not to even try. Thing is there is only one you. You are one unique person. Your spirit, your talents and your beauty are gifts from God. The blessings that exist within you can only be shared if you choose to share them. Every day the opportunity is there to make a difference, to be the difference, to influence the outcome of the day for you and for others. Maybe you don't see the impact of your smile to someone, your encouragement, your example of determination reaching for your goals, but maybe, just maybe, you touch one life. You matter to that one person. Something you can't do if you don't allow your light to shine. So don't think the world is too big to make an impact. Chances are you already have made one today and someone, somewhere is thankful and blessed that you did.

Believe In The Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you let yourself be you. We must let our light shine, "and as we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same." (Marianne Williamson)

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy week everyone.

Daily BITUB- “The Smallest Blessings”

"Even your biggest blessings started somewhere."- DC 2015

People often ask me what BITUB means as I actually have it on my license plate. I tell them it stands for Believe in the Unbelievable. That often strikes up a conversation that probably has them thinking that they didn't really want to know all that, but I get fired up to share how a small blessing of someone asking me to speak has become what it is for me. When I started BITUB, over 14 years ago, my goal was to just share some thoughts. Today it has evolved into an opportunity to share stories, feelings, thoughts, views, and most importantly my faith. I've met many people virtually across the world, made new friends in the many places I've lived, and been inspired by the outpouring of appreciation for the daily posts and the speaking engagements. As the journey continues I am grateful that writing and sharing has pulled me through some tough times, emotional roller coasters, and self doubt. As I say often, and was the first Daily BITUB, there is no shortage doubt, it is the abundance of belief that often gets overlooked. I'm not sure where BITUB will take me next, but I give thanks to God for going with me every step of the way.

Believe in the Unbelievable that is YOU and my prayer for you today is that you notice the small blessings in your life. Everyone of them is a gift and no matter, big or small, God intends for us to have them so that we may know "With God's help (we) will do mighty things." (Psalm 60:12) 

Have a blessed, safe, and healthy day everyone.
