Living My Best Life


Yolanda Conley Shields

Welcome to 2011!

"Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps His Word" (Heb. 10:23, The Message). We know we will not be disappointed, for "all the promises of God in [Christ] are Yes, and in [Christ] Amen" (2 Cor. 1:20, NKJV).

As I think about the many things that took place this year I think about the Tennessee flood of 2010, goals not achieved, great accomplishments and the many blessings.  A new year has arrived, bringing with it our chance for a new beginning. Today is the day we write our list of old habits, and new challenges that we will work on. Forget Resolutions this year get RESULTS........ Resolutions only require words but Results require ACTION!!!

 I will not worry about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will set far-reaching goals and pray for God’s wisdom and guidance to walk them out. Take risk today and don’t put limits on what you can accomplish this year. Meet new people, do something you have wanted to do for years, take care of promises made, improve your health, travel, and get involved in your community or internationally to impact someone else. When we take the focus off of ourselves AMAZING things happen.

Never measure God’s unlimited power by your limited expectations or resources. He is the Lord, “who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” Eph.3:20) Believe and declare you will see every dream, every desire, every promise God put in your heart come to pass! This is a year when anything is possible and you will be able to accomplish things that are greater than you may believe. God is releasing a new strength for us to do the impossible and to break through the obstacles that have held us back in the past. Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. I feel a fresh wind of FAVOR, ANOINTING, AND POWER FOR 2011.

Living My Best Life!
 Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45.

Get ready this year will be AMAZING!!
