Abundance is a choice!

“Your whole life is a manifestation of the thoughts that go on in your head.’

Lisa Nichols

 

“Abundance requires a new mental zip code.”

Lisa Nichols & Switzer, Abundance NOW, pg. 42

 

“Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it…”

Romans 12:2 (The Message Bible)

Dear Prosperity Partners and Friends,

All things are working together for your good. Hold the vision and take charge of your thoughts.
Speak words that are consistent with your vision. Have faith! You are doing better than you
think. Right?

Friends, how amazing was our service last Sunday? We, as a community of faith, were blessed
to have author, entrepreneur, media queen, Lisa Nichols, join us during the third week of our
Adventure in Faith series of lessons (AIF). As you know, Lisa’s book, Abundance Now, is our
secondary text for this year’s adventure. I’ve dubbed AIF as a ‘Make-Over’ series that spans 8
weeks (including Kick-Off Week). Each week we focus on a dimension of life with an intention
to choose more of the abundance that is our God-given birthright. Yes, we are Leveling Up and
choosing Abundance, No Matter What! We are mastering the changes and we are not allowing
the changes to master us.

Sunday’s lesson focus was Mental/Emotional Abundance. We know that what we mentally
reject is less likely to demonstrate in our lives. Anyone who has done anything worthwhile will tell you that they first mentally accepted that the thing they wanted to do was possible. They
believed that it was possible for them. They chose to take the necessary steps to bring the
possibility into their reality. Lisa Nichols believed that her life could change and she took the
steps necessary to bring forth a change in her circumstances. We must do the same.

Life is a game that requires our active participation. Whatever we conceive as possible in the
mind we must also believe wholeheartedly that it is possible for us. Whatever we dare to
conceive and believe will be achieved if we navigate the ever-changing scenes of life.

Lisa offered numerous GEMS to assist us in being mentally healthy and emotionally ready for
our life’s possibilities. Yes, there are curveballs that we never expected or anticipated.
However, she reminded us that we can choose to navigate our way through each one and
experience a positive outcome.

Let’s Recap: Lisa reminded us that:

1. Abundance is a decision that you, alone, make.
2. Unexpected things happen, but you get to choose the mindset that will help you to navigate the unanticipated change.
3. You get to embrace the way you change; the way you release; and the way you lead.
4. The change is about your conviction and not your convenience.
5. You are the author of your biography.
6. You must be willing to raise your thoughts to higher ground. (Remember the elevator analogy?)
7. Choosing Abundance means finding your voice even when your voice is shaky.

Referring once again to Steve Harvey’s comments in the Introduction to the book, Abundance
Now, by Lisa Nichols:
1. You have abundance waiting inside of you, right now.
2. The seeds of greatness wait for your water so they can grow.
3. Get help to navigate you to your destination.

Let’s pray

God,

Your unlimited abundance awaits my decision to accept it. Turning away from the unexpected and unanticipated challenges, I now turn my mind in the direction of abundance. In faith, I choose to be available for Your ideas that prosper me, Your inspiration that speaks as me, and Your courage that reminds me to choose abundance all the time.

Thank You, God.
Amen.

Empowered to Get It Done,

Rev. Sheila
