Just Do Right by Dr Maya Angelou

We must do right on purpose. Not to get rewarded but so that all things are well with our souls. I had a great-aunt who always said just do the right thing. She would then say, “don’t ask me what it is” “you know what is right”. The wisdom of our elders should be cherished. Dr. Maya Angelou was full of wisdom as well. We should allow the words of elders to nourish our souls. Below is one of my favorite clips on Dr. Maya Angelou. Please watch and take away all that your heart needs.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Many of us need to start watching what we are planting in our garden of life. We can find the best and most inspiring words from the bible, from authors, from our pastors, parents or a positive circle of friends. We then turn right around and allow the devil to drop seeds of weeds that grow rapidly and wildly in our beautiful garden. These weeds will choke your beautiful flowers and cause your garden to lose its luster and appeal. You must protect your garden. Never let anyone or anything kill your dream.

God has no respecter of person so if He has done it for one person He will surely do it for you. Oprah Winfrey, Russell Simmons, Steve Job is no better than you. They all had a dream, a passion, a goal and they didn’t allow others to deter them from the path to get them to greatness. Dream your dream and believe and watch things fall into place. Surround yourself with people who will speak life and believe with you into your dreams and passions. Surround yourself with people who have dreams of their own. Surround yourself with people who recognize that God is King and He is a miracle worker and He can’t lie. God tells us to ask and we shall receive. Simply put you must believe. Plant flowers of love, peace, devotion, hope, dreams, faith, giving, teaching and strength. You will not fail. Your dreams that are already a reality waiting to be birthed into physical existence will truly manifest and the world will be a better place because of it.

Faith and Hope

You must have faith and hope in order to sustain a sense of joy. You must believe and keep your faith high in God’s promises. If you lose hope and faith you have nothing. What are you believing in? What is motivating you and keeping you? You must not faint but stay strong and cast down every doubt time it tries to hit your mind. You can’t afford to allow doubt to plant seeds in your mind that will lead to weeds in your heart that will choke every dream you have. Never lose faith and hope, they are your tools that will propel you into the future that God has already created for you.

Planting and Harvesting Time

If you keep a garden of flowers or vegetables you are aware of when to plant certain things. If you plant them too soon they won’t grow at all. If you are planting a vegetable garden you have pretty much planted most of the foods that you will be eating this summer and freezing for the cooler months ahead. If you plant you must be willing to harvest the foods or it will stay in the field too long and you won’t be able to eat it.

As Christians we plant and harvest all the time, even when we don’t realize it. We plant seeds of Christ through our actions and our words. There are many times when we plant but never go back to harvest. We may have a co-worker who is really going through and we take the time to witness to them and share the miracles and faithfulness of God and we never go back and invite them to church or to attend an event in which they can see that our fruits are the same in and out of work. We must take the time to harvest. Harvesting is just as important. Be mindful not to do one without the other.
