Motivation - Stop the Negative Thinking - Let God Lead

Insecurities, Fears, Concerns, Negatives
One again I am in my preaching mode, and when I get in this mode I have to really share whats on my mind. Every since I was a teenager people of all ages would come to me for advice. I use to tell myself, "I'm to young to help to be counseling people twice my age" lol.  I was 17 then and I'm 37 years old now, so that's 20 years of being Mr. Go to Guy. I have learned to embrace this life-long job, and I actually love to help people. I have my own demons, but I also know how to get them off of me when others get stuck in a rut.

I am sooo far from a saint, but God has shown me some amazing things in my 37 years, so I have to share them. One thing that I have noticed lately is that there are so many people who let their thoughts consume them. When I say thoughts, I don't mean those happy go lucky, God the sky is blue, I love my life thoughts. I mean those haunting, stressful, anxiety filled thoughts. Those thoughts that tell you that nobody wants you, you are not smart or pretty enough, or you will not reach your goals.

Well let's deal with why we have these ugly, sick, and negative thoughts. Please stay with me, I'm about to get very preachy, but very freaking real. I'm trying my best not to curse (which I love to do but I'm working on myself), because I get very emotional when speaking about certain things. Ok so let me tell you why we have these thoughts. God has a plan, and a very good plan for our lives. The peace that he wants to give us is something that you can't even imagine. We have to really work to get this peace, and the main assignment is to learn how to trust him. We learn to trust him by spending time with him and having faith.
Cross, Christ, Faith, God, Jesus, Clouds

Now the enemy knows that God has these plans for us, so he has to act as a defensive linesman would on a football field. He has to block what God is trying to do! Now the best way for him to do it is to attack your what..... your mind which holds your thoughts. He has to influence your thoughts by bringing up those fears. Most of the time what you fear the most never happens, but he will have you thinking about certain things over and over again hoping that you fall into depression.

I am starting a new job soon, which is a true blessing for me. The negative thoughts kicked in, things like.... will the people like me, will I be good at the job, and will I be a good manager. The answer is yes, yes, and yes. God would not have put me there if I could not handle the job, or if he did not think that I could do it. My co-worker/friend just got transferred and she worked herself up into a panic today. She is worried about the new work site working with her schedule, and all types of things. I had to remind her that this is what we both asked for, so stop entertaining the devil.

The job of the devil is to pump fear into your heart, the job of Jesus is to bring you peace. Who do you think has the power? Ill let you answer that question! All of those crazy panicky thoughts are of the devil, and he is a liar. Be careful who and what you listen to, what you watch, and where you go! These are the ways that the enemy enters our minds. Think on good things, talk to GOD, and let him have all of your problems. We can't fight the devil, but GOD can, and Jesus has already kicked his.... well you know what I mean. Those are not your thoughts those are the devils, so chill, relax, and thank me in the comment box! God Bless Yall!!

P.S., If you ever need someone to talk to, please feel free to email me, I'm a great listener!

My Budget Journey - Week 1

I actively started my budget last Monday and I have decided to share my weekly progress with you guys, and I must say that I am excited and I am making great progress. I won't share every single detail of my daily life, but I give you updates on how I am doing. I am a little late with this posts so I am going to share my progress from last week. 
My budget  consists of paying all of my bills (gas and groceries included), and giving myself very little pocket change every week. I give myself 10 dollars a week and its really to much because I don't need anything. After all of my bills are paid what could I possibly need? I give myself the $10 bucks just in case I want something like a snack, or for something miscellaneous. 
So last week I stayed on budget other than a stupid emergency that was clearly my fault. I lost my freaking keys at work and I had to go replace them, and that cost me $32. I ate food from home every single day. Not eating out has truly enabled me to stick wi…

My Thoughts - Why Do People Cheat?

This is a topic that I have wrote and read about all to many times. If I can help it this will be the last time I write about it, and hopefully this post will help some of you. I going to keep this real short and sweet, no need for a long post. Women want to know why their men can't keep it in their pants, and men want to know why their women can't keep their legs closed. Your cousin King Braswell is going to tell you in the next paragraph.
Men and women cheat because they want to, and they want to because they are human beings!!! Men like women, and women like men, and they meet other men and women that they like and they do it. The direct reason does not matter, what matters is that they do it. Men are very visual, and they might meet a woman that they are attracted to, so if he feels like its worth the risk he will cheat with that woman. Women like attention, if the right man gives her that attention, she might get in between the sheets with that man.
People do what they w…

My Thoughts- Stop Finger Pointing and Blame Yourself!

I might ruffle some feathers with this post, but fuck it I gotta get this off of my chest. In no way do I condone abuse of any kind, rather it be mental or physical, no one deserves to be abused by anyone! However, if you find yourself going through the same dam thing day after day, month after month, or year after year its on you. If you have not applied any change or action to what needs attention in your life, then you just might like what you are getting, or you are very comfortable.
People come to me all of the time with their problems and I try to motivate them the best I can. Lately I have really been getting overloaded with issues from friends, and most of them have been going through the same thing for years. Most of their problems stems from relationships. Some of them I have cut ties with because they just want to load me up with garbage, and they need someone to co-sign the bullshit that they are doing. The older I get the more that I realize that some of my friends are …
