THE WORDS OF THE WISE

As a child, an upcoming birthday–or simply thinking about your age–always brings out an excited response. It’s not rare to see that once-energetic reaction die down a little as the years go on.
We’ve all been there, and if you haven’t, you will likely be there at some point…that’s right, wanting to go back to the past. From the throwback posts to the ‘share if you’re a 90’s kid’,

nostalgia is everywhere. I would be lying if I said that in the recent months I’ve been suddenly compelled to comb through old yearbooks, photo albums, and even look up childhood friends. It is incredibly easy to get caught up in nostalgia, but snapping out of that yearning mentality is the opposite of that. Reminding yourself that you’re ultimately wasting the time you have in this moment, by focusing on your past, is easier said than done.

Recently I decided to read the book of Ecclesiastes. I would describe it as the slap in the face that I so desperately needed, but Ecclesiastes did that for me in chapter 12, verse 11: “The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails–given by one shepherd.”
Goad is another word for cattle prod, therefore it’s likening the words of the wise as something pesky, but ultimately helpful. This properly explains this specific book of the Bible, as it advises you to relish the life you have before it’s too late. From a humanly perspective, it comes off as ‘harsh,’ but keeping that main theme in mind allows you to gain valuable lessons from it. Our lives as we know them on earth are merely temporary, but God’s hold on the universe gives us an enduring hope and a purpose. We must always keep that on our hearts.
As I was reading, my eyes latched onto Ecclesiastes 7:10. They read, “Do not say, ‘Why were the old days better than these?’ For it is not wise to ask such questions.”
I read that verse until those twenty words started to look like unfamiliar gibberish. In that moment, I knew God was speaking to me. So many times I’ve addressed the ‘good old days’. So many times I’ve longed for those memories. So many times…and if I could add the minutes I’ve spent wallowing in the past, how much time have I taken from my present?

It wasn’t until this moment that I truly listened to God in regards to that. He was loud and clear. Ecclesiastes 3:14 writes, “I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.” God has His hands on all of our lives. Whether we make a mistake and wish we could change it or experience a pleasant thing that we wish we could go back to, God is imploring us to keep our eyes forward.

RESPECT YOUR BODY FOR CHRIST

Respect your body for Christ 
1 Corinthians 6:12-20 gives us great examples of what God says about the importance of your body to His word. Today I want to take you through the verses of this scripture to show you how important your physical health makes a big part of your spiritual life. 

Verse 12: “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be dominated by anything.” Our bodies are a gift from God and he has given them to us for a reason therefore we have to use it according to His will.
Verse 13: “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immortality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.” Our bodies are the sole property of the Lord therefore they have to be used for His glory.
Verse 14: “And God raised us up by His power.” Our bodies are a temple of God therefore one day He will resurrect your body and give you a better version of yourself.
Verse 15 & 18“Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ. Shall I then take the members of a prostitute? Never. Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.” In God’s eyes sin against the body is the worst kind because He considers the body as His precious treasure. Our bodies are connected to Christ, we have to respect it.
Verse 19&20: “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” This is my favourite verse because it goes straight to the point. Our bodies are not ours, but Gods because he bought them by giving up His one and only begotten son. What more can we ask for.
With all that being said. I just wanted you to see that you are valuable, you are a treasure. Keep your body is great shape and honour God.

OVERCOME ANXIETY WITH THE LORD


Anxiety, worry and tension are some of the most destructive forces we can face today. They steal our strength and slowly undermine our faith, keeping us from maturing in the Lord. If we are to grow in our relationship with Jesus, we must discover God’s plan for freedom from the crippling cycle of anxiety. Philippians 4:6 says: “Do not worry about anything,” writes Paul, “but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God.” The underlying message here is very clear: Pray more. Give thanks more. And don’t focus on your anxiety.

God wants us to be free from worry. Jesus said, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28). But to enter that rest we have to cut off stress’ source of power: our unbelief (Heb. 3:19).
Jesus has confronted our futile anxiety. He tells us to look at how God feeds the birds of the air and arrays the lilies of the field. How much more will He care for his children?
Anxiety affects how we feel and behave, and it can manifest real physical symptoms. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling, while severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating, having a serious impact on daily life.Therefore whenever we get the anxious, we should always remember that in Matthew 6:26-34 Jesus has confronted our fruitless anxiety. He tells us to look at how God feeds the birds of the air and arrays the lilies of the field. How much more will He care for his children?
“Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single cubit to his life’s span? And why are you anxious about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; thy do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these. But if God so arrays the grass of the field, which is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more do so for you, O men of little faith? Do not be anxious then saying What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘With what shall we clothe ourselves?’ For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own”.
We should learn to cast our cares to Him. Every day will bring new opportunities to cast our cares upon Him. One of the best ways we can do this is by replacing our worry and tension with prayer and thanksgiving. “Be anxious for nothing,” the Bible says, “but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Phil 4:6). This command is followed by a wonderful promise: “And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:7).

PEACE AT MIND WITH YOUR EMOTIONS

How to find balance in your emotions
Between work, tasks, errands and chores that we accumulate during the day, it is easy for us to feel like we need to work 25 hours, seven days a week just to keep up. Everything on that instance becomes urgent and this may leave us overwhelmed therefore, it is important to have emotional balance because there is no end to the onslaught of modern life.

Being emotionally balanced means that you are allowing yourself to experience your feelings as they evolve bynot avoiding or suppressing them, also you are not being so attached to them and also not recognising that they are all-consuming. Emotional balance occurs when we allow ourselves to feel whatever comes up, without being overwhelmed by it, and learn to accept our feelings without judgment.
It is understandable that nobody wants to feel pain but avoiding it is not the answer. Our wishful thinking tells us that if we can just avoid the pain, it won’t affect us. Ironically, efforts to keep painful thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations at bay may work temporarily, at the end of the da, you have to deal with these challenges at some stageThe harder you work to avoid pain, the greater your suffering tends to be.
The following are several levels of awareness that might help you to cultivate your emotional balance.
1. Become consciously aware of the emotions you are experiencing. Although you may not understand or know what the feeling is, it is important to simply notice and acknowledge that you have some feeling.
2. Try to identify the particular emotion. Close your eyes, turn your focus inward, and allow yourself to experience that emotion in your body. Different emotions are typically experienced in different parts of the body. For example, anger might manifest as tightness in your neck and shoulders, sadness as an aching in your chest, fear as a knot in your stomach, and joy as warmth in your heart.
3. Put the emotion into words. “I’m feeling anxious.” “I’m feeling angry.” “I’m feeling sad.” Putting the emotions you experience into words by making these simple self-statements can create the space you can use to respond intentionally rather than react automatically and unconsciously.
Emotional balance can be achieved by practicing emotional regulation and distress tolerance. Emotional regulation relates to identifying the emotions that are being felt in the moment, and observing them without being overwhelmed by them. Emotional regulation skills include self-soothing activities that help to reduce emotional intensity and provide a calming effect, such as: meditation, intentional breathing, yoga, listening to music you enjoy, progressive muscle relaxation, taking a walk or a hike, reading something pleasurable or spiritual, singing a favourite song, exercising, visualizing a comforting/relaxing image, journaling, etc.
Emotions, especially powerful, disturbing ones, can seem as though they will last forever. However, whether they are positive and bring smiles to our face and laughter to our lips, or painful and bring hurt to our hearts and tears to our eyes, feelings are always temporary. They come and go. Sometimes they leave sooner than we would like; other times they stay way past the point when we want them to leave, but eventually they all leave.
Lastly we have to be prepared to let go of your attachments to any particular outcome so that you can be open to something bigger than you have ever imagined. Learn that to yield does not mean that you lose and be willing to compromise. Let life lead you down unexpected turns and you will discover magic in the most ordinary places.

FINANCIAL BLESSINGS

God wants your bills to be paid, your needs met and your family blessed. He doesn’t hold back any blessings. God wants you blessed financially so that you can finance the gospel and establish his covenant. God wants you to honour him through your financial success. 

The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your Children.”(Psalm 115:14)
In order to be blessed financially you must follow the financial principles that God has given us in His word. Jesus set out the most important principle, the principle of giving. “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)
When you give to God, He will give back to you in greater measure than you have given. The more you give to God, the more you will receive. I have seen the truth of this principle in my own life and even with the people at church. Those that are faithful in giving tithes and offerings are blessed financially, even in the midst of recession. We all have a choice to make. Whether we are going to believe God’s Word and be a generous giver or not? God blesses those who trust Him with their finances. 
The lord will grant you abundant prosperity – in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground – in the land He swore to your ancestors to give you. The Lord will open the heavens, to send rain on your land in season and to bless the work of your hands. You will lend to may nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.” (Deuteronomy 28:11-13)
God blesses us so that we are blessings to others. (Gen 12:2) The bible teaches that God blesses use so that we will bless others. We not blessed to feel good, happy and comfortable. This is the first law of blessing and it must follow to those in need. We can bless other by serving their needs be it physical or emotional support or financial help. 
The more you bless other people, the more God blesses your life. Luke 6:38 tells us, “Give away your life; you will find life given back, but not merely given back – given back with bonus and blessing.” You can’t out-give God. The more you give the more God pours His blessing upon you. 
Malachi 3: 10 -12 tells us to; “Bring the whole tithe onto the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,”says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the flood gates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop before it is ripe;” says the Lord Almighty. Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land.

FIND THE JESUS IN YOU!

Finding yourself in Christ means a lot more than it appears.  God has created every one of us for a purpose to be fulfilled here on earth and until we begin to live the way God wants us to, we will never find that purpose. Jesus told us that “you have to lose yourself in other to find yourself.” This could seem paradoxical to your ears but have you sat down to think and meditate on what He meant by this statement.
[Matthew 10:39] He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”

Hence, Jesus is telling us that to be like him, we must lose our pride and be submitted to Him in all our ways. The Bible makes us understand that pride is a great sin. Satan had pride and made him misbehave in heaven which resulted to chasing him down. We have many other personalities that fell for pride in the Bible. Let us take Goliath and David in the Old Testament as case study. 
Goliath was so confident in his strength and valor, he forgot he was a creature created by a Creator and he underrated the God of Israel when David challenged him in the Bible. David casted away every pride and challenged Goliath in God’s name. 
[I Samuel 17:45] “Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”
We all know how God gave David flawless victory over the arrogant giant (Goliath) because David casted his pride away and relied on God to do fight the battle. He was able to find his true self as a victorious warrior. After the battle with Goliath and victories over philistine, the people of Israel praised and acknowledged David, even more than King Saul.
[I Samuel 18:7] “And the women sang to one another as they made merry, “Saul has slain his thousands and David his ten thousands.”
Hence, it is important to cast away your pride and submit yourself into His hands. You will even serve and understand him better when you do these.

Another important step to take after submitting yourself to Christ is to look for evidence, as you study, that you are a child of God. Also look for evidence that God is; Creator,  holy, good, righteous, loving, and not capable of any evil. Look for writings that projects God’s love for his children, an everlasting love that mirrors and transcends a parent’s love for a child. This will provide you with the theoretical knowledge to believe Jesus died for you so as to redeem and give you an everlasting place in his kingdom. Knowing that your true self is connected to the fact that God created you and loves you, even though you are a sinner, provides true confidence to find yourself in Christ and you will know that you are truly loved unconditionally.

WHY SO SALTY?



It is seriously funny how the first time I heard the phrase salty it was a term used to roast your friends and make jokes but these jokes are usually not very good to some effect. I know this because a lot of people that did not make it into my life this year would use this word behind my back on Facebook. 


Some friends right!

However after being in church at the Rock church for a few months the term salty has a new meaning to me. It has this positive uplifting meaning. Go be salty and spread yourself to the world to be fruitful and salty in someone else’s life. You can never go bad with to much salt but you can go bad with out any salt at all. 



Matthew 5:13








“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.



What is salt? By definition it is: A substance used for seasoning certain kinds of food, and for the preservation of meat.
For what purpose was it made?
To season: To render palatable, or to give a higher relish to, by the addition or mixture of another substance more pungent or pleasant; as, to season meat with salt.
To preserve: To save from decay. Salt is used to preserve meat.
To cure: To dry; to prepare for preservation; as, to prepare by salt, or in any manner, so as to prevent speedy purification.

We are to salt the world with are presence that is why it is so important that we are doing what we are supposed to do as christians if we do not how can someone be saved from their demons out there. We need to be the ones that cure this world of sin. 
We are to speak well-seasoned or salted words. (1 Corinthians 13:1) “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.” We are to speak with love.

Stop complaining over what is wrong in your life, and start speaking life over your life. How can you help people if you keep complaining about what is going on in your life it is not fair to the person you are trying to save and help. 

All in all BE SALTY IN A POSITIVE WAY!

SUCCESS SCARES ME

My blog Styling With Sheila J is a product of my live and you learn blog, ModelSavings.com.  I thought it was a good idea at the time but as the months turned into a year and a year turned into 2. I thought that that converting to word press self hosted from blogger not realizing how much of a financial burden this may cost me. Now as many of you know I am all about saving money, but I was wasting money more than making money and my blog was not doing what it was supposed to do. As my life began to spiral down hill, and began to feel all over the place so did my blog.
It took months of frustration and my blog being cut off and on from blue host for me to say enough was enough and ask God for clarity on what I should do by still remaining true to myself and what I wanted to do in my life and career. One day as I was on the phone with blue host trying to regain my domain name from them that was on lock due to a bank situation, I asked should I have even be doing this or should I just give up on this idea of model savings. The whole concept behind model savings was the fact that I am a model who loves to save money. However it seems as if that concept didn’t appeal to many models at all. The aggravation!
One thing is for sure my blog posts stylingwithsheilaj.com appealed to everyone, thus my new blog being called stylingwithsheilaj.com. Now what scares me is success, I just launched the first blog post on Jan 8th,2015 with the blog post 21 Apps that Will Make and Save You Money. I would have never guessed that a week later that same blog post would have went viral making my blog reach 22,000 view in under a months time. The irony of it all is that before I write every blog post is that I pray ask God to write my blog posts because with out him I am now nothing and I can not do anything with out him. 
This idea of success scares me so much because I know success for me is right around the corner and I feel it coming very soon. And I have no idea of what to do with it. I have been struggling for so long that the idea of having a million dollars scares me. Why? Because with that comes taxes and with the a million ways that I have figured out how to make money from ,  I have no idea of how to maneuver with taxes and how to pay my taxes with so much money coming in. With money and success comes things that I am not used to. So god you are gonna have to do what you do best and help me in the process because lord knows I would not know what to do. 
What does the bible say about success? 
Proverbs 29:18King James Version (KJV)
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Granted I have a vision but I never imagined it happening this fast. It amazes me and it’s all because I sat down wrote out the vision like it says in Habakkuk 2:2. 
“Success depends on three things: who says it, what he says, how he says it; and of these three things, what he says is the least important.”
When King David was about to die, he gave his son, Solomon, the following advice: “Do what the LORD your God commands and follow his teachings. Obey everything written in the Law of Moses. Then you will be a success, no matter what you do or where you go” (1 Kings 2:3 CEV). 
Genesis 39:2-6 “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made all he did to prosper in his hand. So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority. So it was, from the time that he had made him overseer of his house and all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was on all that he had in the house and in the field. Thus he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand, and he did not know what he had except for the bread which he ate.”
Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”

If you are not walking with advice of the wicked nor standing in the way of sinners or the way that sinners are going and are also not sitting in the seat of people who talk bad about god then God will bless you. To be blessed means to literally make you happy to your hearts desires. Your happiness will naturally be in God’s law and you will meditate day or night (all the time) and this means that like a tree planted by a stream of water, you will never dry up or die because you will always produce godly fruit and everything you do will prosper
Proverbs 3:1-4 “My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.”
The Word of God and write the words onto the tablet of our heart. The heart, in the Jewish language, was the seat of intellect. Pretty much what you have to do is memorize the Bible well not all of it but some of it. If you do this you will have “length of days and years of life” and “you will find favor and good success.” What more could a man or woman want.

MEMORIES

I remember the day when you said being with me meant that you would be happy. That you wanted to be selfish because you could not stand the thought of someone else being with me. What happened to that man that I fall in love with where did he go?  I question that everyday. You tell me it is because I accused you of things you were not doing that you did what you did eventually. How does that make it right? All of this time you gave me a reason to be how I was, not once did you apologize for it. Now that hurts, because  I really cared about you, and still do.

Do you 
remember when I said  I love you? I wasn’t lying. Remember when we used to talk for hours and tell each other everything? I miss that, I miss us but someone or something always seemed to be against us. Namely that oppa loppa…  It is sad because we really had something special but it just seemed like all I did was push you closer to her. You used to give me butterfiles in my tummy and  you still do. I would always try and place you in the friend zone and take you back out because I could not help myself. I could not wait until the next time I saw you. We always be on the phone and we always saw each other.



Maybe we do not get to be in each others lives, maybe we were unable to climb the enormous mountain together, maybe we don’t get a happily ever after. I would love to say all of this is true but the truth is i still love you and still want you. The truth is no matter how far away you are,  no matter what you might say or do my mind always finds a way to end up thinking about you.  Maybe you don’t need me anymore, one day you’ll wake up and realize that there is no one else in the world like me, that I’m one of a kind.

Hoping that you’ll want me back one day and maybe that day ill still need you. It’s like I have tired to say this over and over again to you but it just does not come out that way. You found someone else ok fine, I can not say that it does not hurt because lord knows that it does.  I will find a way to get over it just be honest with me that’s all I ask for. Do not give me false hope for something that I think might happen but will not happen.

I can at least say that at some point we shared something, and you felt the same way I did. Who knows maybe you still feel the same way.  
 But we will never know that now will we.

VOICE

Growing up I never was given the chance to speak my mind so I reverted to creative outlets to express myself. People made fun of me and told me I would never amount to anything. I was always told that I can be seen but never to be heard. Throughout all of this I was the one that was told I was wrong for what I was doing. So naturally now I apologize for everything I do even if I am doing something right.

The only place I have found that I feel like I am naturally able to be myself and not feel sorry is in front of the camera. I can not tell you how many times I usually get that you are a total complete other person. I do agree with this because I know how to channel different things at the right time and place. 
It is funny because when I got accepted to Penn State Altoona, my uncle asked me “how did you do that its a foot ball school is it not?” Well yes penn state is a foot ball school, however I busted my butt off to get into that school and i never actually ended up going at all. I was disappointed and let down that I did not know what to do.
I find that a lot of times what happens with me is inside of my head I know what I want and where I want to be and it most of the time it happens. However I notice that I ask for what it is that I want or ask for help from people that I know love and care about me so I let it go and don’t say anything.  I still get what I want but I don’t say anything. I know I have to speak up though and find my voice.
If I do not find my voice how can I minister to other woman or be an inspiration to others.
All essence there more people that are out there trying to find their voices 
If you do not find your voice and declare truth over your life, the people around you and in the places you already have influence, who will? What we need to  focus on is reclaiming or finding our voice to declare truth into our own lives, to our situations or the people and obstacles in front of us.
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” – Luke 16:10
Never stop dreaming and going after all that it is God has called you to and put in your heart. However, in the midst of the journey don’t forget where you are right now and how critical your voice is to the story being written in your life.The reality is that all around there are voices declaring all sorts of things and it isn’t always truth, what releases life, or gives hope. 

1. Declare the promises of God in your life and to the people around you.

We pray we plan we prepare we do!!!!!! 
Habakkuk 2:2 
2. Declare the Word of God.
…so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. – Isaiah 55:11
3. Pray in the Spirit.

“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.” – Romans 8:26-27
“For anyone who speaks in a tongue[a] does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit.” – 1 Corinthians 14:2
4. Ask God for help.

In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. – Psalm 18:6
5. Listen to what the voice of God is saying.

Romans 8:14, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Conversely, this scripture implies that if we are God’s children, if we are born-again, we will be led by His Spirit.”
