It’s the 1st Day of Spring and in my area they are calling for snow! It hit me, though seasons change it doesn’t always look like it right away. Make sure you aren’t moved by what you see.
I’ve had some interesting convos lately about the weather. “Should we should stop wearing boots since it’s a new season?” If it’s still cold and snowing you better not put up your coat and boots lol
Prepare for the season you are in with belief that what you should expect will be manifested in the natural and in the spiritual. You don’t want to be caught when the weather changes (seasons and weather are different things) and you haven’t ‘Spring’ cleaned, organized your spring wardrobe, planted your garden, or planned for the next season Summer.
When the season has changed but the weather you are experiencing in life doesn’t match up keep your Faith up, your Work up, and stay in position until you see the “NEW” you are expecting manifest.
“Those too lazy to plow in the right season will have no food at the harvest.”
Proverbs 20:4 NLT

Forgive, Let it go, Move on Tele-Course and Workbook
We must be more grateful. How often do we talk about what we “have to do?” What you “have to do” someone else is praying for the opportunity to do. Truth is, you prayed or hoped for it one day yourself, now that it’s here you treat it as an obligation instead of a privilege! Change your mind and your words:
I get to take care of my spouse and children today!
I get to go to work today!
I get to clean and organize my home today!
I get to lead this team!
I get to teach this lesson!
I get to sing this song!
I get to speak to this group!
I get to write this paper/book!
I get to lead this teleconference!
I get to represent my organization at this meeting!
I get to fellowship with like minded people today!
I get to study your word!
I get to take this class/training!
“Thank you Lord that I get to! It’s my privilege to walk out my portion today!”
So, I want to give you something to think about today. It applies to our relationship with God and all the other relationships in our lives as well.
After thinking about this, I will have to admit there have been times I will confess a short coming, a wrong, an offense, a sin but that’s just merely stating a fact at a particular moment.
For example: I can say, “I’m sorry I raised my voice at you!”
However, to determine the intention of my heart you will have to look at my actions that follow. When we are in a disagreement again, do you notice me taking deep breaths to calm down, listening intently before responding, and/or choosing words of love to express myself. If so, that means that not only did I confess my fault when I told you I was sorry. That means I had a change of heart (repentance) and I’m making a conscious effort not to do that again.
Now does that mean I will never raise my voice again? No, but I should show that I’m working on it by my actions.
Confession is made by the mouth, repentance is made by the heart!
I would take some time and think about confessions you’ve made. Did you have a change of heart or did you just state the facts at the moment to make yourself or the other person feel better?
Examine your prayer time: are you confessing sins knowing you plan to commit the sin again because you intend to make no changes?
After you’ve looked at yourself, take some time and think about those in your life that consistently admit they have done you wrong but you have seen no change. It’s time to set up some boundaries.

Think about when you were a little girl playing princess. If you never role played in that way, you’ve seen someone else do it. Hear the sound of an innocent little girl’s voice as she puts on her crown or gown and boldly proclaims through the grin on her face, “I am a princess!”
I want to remind you today, you are a princess darling! You are daughter of the most high God and you are loved unconditionally. You are not an illegitimate daughter but in fact you were chosen to be apart of the royal family in the Kingdom of God!
Being a princess has its benefits. You have an army of angels assigned to protect and keep watch over you. You have such authority that whenever you say the name of Jesus, demons tremble and flee.
You are favored just because of whose you are! Doors are opened for you, red carpets are laid, you get invited to “dine” at tables others never thought you deserved but your title of princess and your gifts make room for you.
You are supported! When you walk in your assignment that has been delegated to you by your Father the King, the entire Kingdom stands in agreement and works in harmony alongside you.
You are well taken care of. Lack of resources is not something that is even on the mind of a princess. You know the riches of the kingdom are at your disposal!
What would happen if everyday we reminded ourselves that we are a princess? If you haven’t today, meditate on that fact and take advantage of all the benefits.
To the woman in the mirror:
- I know you tried before and were told it wasn’t the right way or the right time
- I know you doubted your ability and in your mind could hear the voices of others doing the same
- I know you see others doing something similar and you feel like your work won’t stand out
- I know those closest to you don’t always understand and think you are doing “too much”
- I know that what’s in you has to get out or you will burst out with frustration instead of greatness
- I know you were created with a unique voice and a unique flavor that only you can bring
- I know someone’s life will change when you release the heavenly treasure that’s locked inside
- I know you will do it because you have to!
You will do IT!
Happy Valentines Day from the Bundys!
My husband and I filmed a YouTube video sharing our appreciation for one another. Though I’m sure we both feel that we show appreciation throughout the year it was so good to actually hear the words expressed.
We all want to feel appreciated. Lack of appreciation can makes people feel frustrated, discouraged, and used. I encourage you to tell someone today how much you appreciate them for what they add to your life.
Praise and Worship is how you show appreciation to your Heavenly Father, start there and then speak words of appreciation to others.
