DAILY MEDITATION

Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. I Timothy 4:14-16 Our Transformed Life is a direct product of our accessing, developing, and utilizing the gifts that God has given unto us. As you and I operate in our gifts, our lives are transformed to support and nurture our gifts. If we can focus on what God has given us; our abilities and talents, and allow those to drive our narrativ

DAILY MEDITATION

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits. II Timothy 2:2-6 Transformed Lives are God’s tool to bring about light to the darkness that exist in the world. As you and I seek to become everything God intends, we turn the light on in our space, sca

DAILY MEDITATION

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: I Timothy 1:17-19 As believers we are charged to forge ahead through life and the process of life toward what is the promises of God. The promises of God are real and available even though there are hindrances. Life is difficult; the demands of our families, employment, relationships, and our own imposed standards not withstanding ar

DAILY MEDITATION

That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. II Timothy 3:17 A Transformed Life is a direct result of engaging the experiences of life in a way in which you leverage those for the promise of life and life more abundantly in and through all things. God uses the everyday experiences of our life to reveal Himself and us in such a way that we are empowered to overcome and receive power and authority. It is up to you and I to see our experiences as building blocks toward our well-lived and joy filled life, gaining from each experience the know with all and revelation of who God is and who we are in Him. The experiences of life are our potters wheel in which we,

DAILY MEDITATION

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. Hebrews 6:1-2 A Transformed Life is one that is continuously evolving. As one seeks to Occupy Your Promise, the journey, process of life serves as the mechanism to evolve to what one, including one’s life should be. The mindset for one who understand your promise, context, and purpose is ever forging ahead to the life and life more abundantly; “for we have no continuing city down here yet we seek one to

DAILY MEDITATION

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. I Corinthians 9:24 The process of life transforms you to adapt and adjust to the forward drive toward what is your life and life more abundantly. It is up to you and I as we are transforming every day through each of our experiences to drive the narrative that will get us to our expected end, abundant life. Driving your narrative through the ups and downs of life is like running a race. Running a race is not about how fast you go but instead about one’s endurance and strategic actions toward winning. The mindset for building out your well-lived and joy filled life is required to en

DAILY MEDITATION

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. Luke 9:62 (The Message) Moving forward is an act and witness of a Transformed Life. Transformation is the process in which we move from beyond what was to what is with an eye toward what shall be. You can never get to becoming what should be for your life if you are still tied to and entangled in the what was. Get over yesterday and live in today toward what will be tomorrow. It sounds simple to move forward but it takes intentionality on your part to get to where you suppose to be, your expected end of life and life more abundantly. In order to build out your well-lived

DAILY MEDITATION

But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. I Timothy 6:11-12 Positioning ourselves to build out our well-lived and joy filled life requires our forward thinking and motion. You and I will never to get to our expected end, life and life more abundantly, if we are not oriented toward that promise. Orienting ourselves, a Transformed Life, toward our thinking and actions to the fulfillment of our promises helps us to clear the clutter of life, the good and the bad, for th

DAILY MEDITATION

If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, Philippians 3:11-13 On this Thanksgiving Day 2018, I am so grateful that I am not who I was but the process of life has transformed me and positioned me for the fulfillment and occupation of my promise of life and life more abundantly. A Transformed Life understands that life is a process and as

DAILY MEDITATION

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19 Transformed Lives are released from the old in order to fully embrace the new. The release is necessary, although it may be difficult and cause pain, the suffering from bursting froth from what was to what shall be is required to handle and fully enjoy the new. The new is defined not by what was but instead what shall become. The more one is focused on what you are becoming, what your space will be, the more sensitive you are to the God provided opportuniti

DAILY MEDITATION

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. Galatians 6:15-16 Transformed Lives are not built because of the right of our lives or decisions but instead on the righteousness of our process. There is a difference between right and righteousness; doing and believing the right does not always translate the way we believe it should be. Righteousness says that our process, journey is one that allows for us through that which may or may not be right to move us to the place of our expected end. Everything in life is not just black and whit

DAILY MEDITATION

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15:14-16 A Transformed Life reflects our relationship with God that has been developed and nurtured as a result of going through with God to get to the life and life more abundantly promised. Whatever has happened or will happen in you

DAILY MEDITATION

Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he ha

DAILY MEDITATION

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Colossians 3:1-3 Positioning is important to getting to the place where you believe you should be. Positioning is not just about one’s physical location and/or space but also the positioning of one’s mindset. Mindset is the control center for the actions that will follow. Thus, a Transformed Life must be an act and process of the wholeness of oneself generated by The Spirit of God that transforms one’s mind, body, and space. As your Transformed Life goes

DAILY MEDITATION

Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Colossians 2:12-13 Our Transformed Lives are of value because we accept the fact that our everyday experiences are opportunity for things to die in us and yet we are raised to a new creature, new level of understanding and empowerment. The process of transformation is the journey of engaging the circumstances of our lives and overcoming them while also realizing our power source and capacity to handle what we b

DAILY MEDITATION

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Romans 6:4-5 The power of our Transformed Life is not just in the power of our aftermath of the transformation but also the fellowship of the process to the transformation. Understanding that as you endure the journey of life, the process with the good and especially the bad, is as much a rallying point for victory as is the end result of transformation. As we go through to get to, we realize

DAILY MEDITATION

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8 The process of our Transformed Lives is God’s vehicle to develop and nurture us to handle the promise of our life and life more abundantly. As you and I are building our our well-lived and joy filled lives as co-creators with God, God uses the building out to reveal Himself to us but also to stretch us, unearthing our potential. It is through the process of time, we find that we can rely on God to r

DAILY MEDITATION

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might g

DAILY MEDITATION

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:12-13 The value and affect of our Transformed Lives is we lift the spotlight of the fullness of God’s power, love, and mercy making Him accessible and available to all. You and I may not be perfect or even fully equipped to build out our well-lived and joy filled lives but our visible and actual reliance on God makes a statement that all things are possible if we would believe in Him. The building of our faith directly impacts the building of one another’s faith. As we see our process, journey

DAILY MEDITATION

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:4-10 The reason that we have our being, we
