New Possibilities in the Life of Overflow

Each day is filled with new possibilities to make major moves in your life.  The new day is another chance to MOVE past fear, low self-esteem, unforgiveness, or doubt.  Sometime we wait, and wait, and wait on every other option, but none of that matters when you have FAITH.  If you want something in life and in experiencing the overflow you need two things: FAITH & ACTION.  Get up, stop making excuses and WALK towards your goal.  Don't spend this day wishing you would have done one thing or another!

The Running Over Stage #TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste


Many of us are trying to live the abundant life with upside down cups!  Our cup must be turned right side up.  Be ope to believe God and to receive His fullness.  TURN YOUR CUP RIGHT SIDE-UP!!

Some of our cups are not running over because they are cracked.  Cracked with disobedience.  Cracked with selfishness.  TAKE YOUR CRACKED CUP TO THE POTTER TO BE MENDED!!!

Praying in the Overflow #TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

Connecting with God through prayer is the place where our tank is filled, but like a car’s gasoline supply that needs to be refilled regularly. We need to do the same and let God fill and refill us again and again. Edward M. Bounds said, “Those who know God the best are the richest and most powerful in prayer.” Make room for prayer so that you can make room for love.

The Unlimited Source of Love #TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

When we connect with God, He divinely positions us to be used by Him in ways we would not be normally used, if we had to rely on ourselves.

God is our unlimited source of love. His love tank never runs low. We have the ability to continually connect with him on a deeper and deeper level. This then puts us in a position to connect with people on a deeper and deeper level.

Having an #Overflow of Creativity, #TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

You are a bright light that shines in darkness!  Turn on your inner light... Don't allow competition, comparison and corruption stop your flow of creativity or interrupt your purpose of being creative.  When others cannot see, bring a smile.  When others are unkind, speak words of light and life.  Don't allow competition to detour your purpose in creativity because you know who you are!

Banking in the Overflow #TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

We all have a spiritual bank that builds equity when we connect with God and declines when we don’t. God gives us what we need so that we can meet the needs of others. But unlike the investor who had nothing to offer when the opportunity of a lifetime came his way. We need to be full of God’s love so that when the person who is hurting comes our way. We are not bankrupt, but have something to offer that could help them through a tough time, a bad day or whatever they are going through.

The Overflow of Relationship #TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

We will either live life from a loving relationship with God that spills over into all our relationships, or we will live on empty and have nothing to offer those around us. In order to live life out of the overflow of our relationship with God, we must love one another habitually, connect with God daily, and reflect on the depths of God’s love regularly.

Blog Series: The Overflow of God's #Peace, Being at Peace with Your SISTAHS | @TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

We need to be considerate about & at peace with one another. 

But that’s not the attitude of a lot of people today. They’re convinced that if you don’t gripe & complain & argue & fight for everything you want in life, you’ll never get it. So you’ll hear them saying such things as "Me first, & everybody else last," & "It’s my way, or no way!"

It’s important that we pledge to one another & to God that we’ll not allow ourselves to be used as pawns in the hand of Satan to harbor pain and resentment with one another. As we serve God together, we can experience the overflow of peace. 

"The meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace."
(Psalm 37:11)

Blog Series: The Overflow of God's #Peace, Grow in Peace | @TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

The truth is peace comes from God. I can’t have peace with God until I have claimed responsibility for my will. But after we claim responsibility we have to surrender our lives to Jesus. 

Before you can have real peace with others you have to find peace with God. There is a lot made about people finding God and making peace with God but I can tell you it’s not something that you get to do at the end of your life. It’s something you need to do as you grow in your life in Jesus.

"Great peace have they who love God's law, and nothing can make them stumble."
(Psalm 119:165)

Blog Series: The Overflow of God's #Peace, Our Responsibility of Peace | @TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

When we focus on what He has done rather than on what he hasn’t done or what we want done we will find our attitude will be a grateful one rather than an anxious one.

How are you going to get honest with God and give him your burdens when you won’t even get real about what those burdens are?  You need to accept responsibility for your life and your choices. It’s impossible to give your life to Jesus if you never owned your choices and owned up to your life. If we are doing our best to live at peace with all people, we must learn to treat people properly. 

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.  And be thankful."  
(Colossians 3:15)

Blog Series: The Overflow of God's #Peace, @TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

Throughout history humanity have been in the habit of building walls.  Of building walls to bring comfort, safety and peace.  When a problem arises we often want to put walls up.  For us to have peace with God and with others Jesus is essential.  It is Jesus who we need to be focused on.  It is Jesus who brings us peace.

"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you." 
(Isaiah 26:3)

Blog Series: The Overflow of God's #Peace, Let Peace Rule | @TheSISTAHSMinistry @MinisterCeleste

An umpire is in control of a game his decisions guide and control the game being played. In the same way peace should rule the believer’s heart. Peace should be the controlling and dominant force in a believer’s life. During sports events we all see calls made that we don’t agree with or even understand, yet everyone accepts the final authority of the official, referee of umpire, whether we understand their decision or not. The same should be true with God’s Peace in our lives it should rule our hearts, our lives, and guide our choices and decisions.

"Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us." 
(Isaiah 26:12)

Series: Living in the Overflow of #Patience, Let Go!

Let go if you can't do anything about the situation

If there isn't anything that you can do to resolve whatever has triggered your impatience, just let it go. Easier said than done, yes, but it's possible, and it's the only healthy thing to do. 

Initially, you will probably find it difficult to let go if the matter is important to you — waiting to hear back after a job interview, for instance — but you should be able to alleviate impatience that's caused by issues of less consequence (i.e. waiting in line at the grocery store).

If you make a concerted effort to be more patient in relatively inconsequential, short-term situations, you'll gradually develop the strength to remain patient in even the most trying and enduring situations.

Series: Living in the Overflow of #Patience, Patters of Impatience

Look for patterns

Being aware of your impatience also gives you a chance to learn from it and perhaps uncover a relationship or circumstance that is simply not healthy or constructive, and that you may have the power to change. Figure that out, and you can then think logically about the problem issue and decide whether or not your impatience is warranted or helpful. It usually isn't, but when it is you can then figure out ways to fix the root problem rather than simply feeling stressed about it.

Series: Living in the Overflow of #Patience, Triggers of Impatience

Pinpoint the triggers that often influence you to lose your patience

Impatience creeps in insidiously, and if you feel anxious, worried, or unhappy you may not even realize that the underlying cause of these feelings is impatience. To reduce the frequency of impatience, it helps to be aware of it. 

Which events, people, phrases or circumstances always seem to influence you lose your cool? Sit down and make a list of all the things which cause you anxiety, tension, or frustration. At the core of most triggers is a reality that we have a hard time accepting. What are those realities for you?

Series: Living in the Overflow of #Patience

Try to figure out why you are in such a hurry. For example: waiting for an important party to start! We tend to lose our patience when we're multitasking or when we're on a tight schedule, expecting the day to pass within only a few short minutes of busyness and chaos. 

If you're stretching yourself too thin, you should reconsider your to-do list before you attempt to change your natural reaction to an overwhelming situation.

Try to spread out your tasks so that you're doing only one thing at a time, without leaving yourself twiddling your thumbs in eagerness of something to busy yourself with.

Delegate responsibilities to others if you can; this in itself may be a test of your patience, but you have to learn to share the load.

The #Overflow of Prayer

One big problem with man is that his thoughts far exceed his request. Sometimes, lack of faith makes man to ask for less than he could. For example, you may have it in your thoughts to own an estate but in the place of prayer all you could muster faith to ask God for is a house. Our thoughts include more than we dare to ask in our prayers; our dreams exceed what we consciously desire. God answers prayer; He even answers unspoken prayers. God can act beyond our ability to ask or even imagine. 

Why do you limit God in your prayers? There are people in the scriptures that dared ask God seemingly impossible things and He answered them. Can you think of one of them? Who told you that which looks like a mountain before God cannot be handled by Him? No wonder that song writer says, "…oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pains we bear; all because we do not carry EVERYTHING to God in prayers."

God is able to do infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope—more than we would dare to imagine. God is far above and beyond our finite minds. God is able because of his mighty power.

The #Overflow of Grace

Let us expand our expectations of what grace is all about. First grace is not a genie in the bottle. It is not let me go and do whatever feels good and then I will rub the magic bottle and out will pop the grace genie and all will be forgiven, thinking then I can continue to do whatever I want as long as I have the bottle. 

Grace is not grace to sin but grace to forgive sin in pursuit of perfection. 

Let's start believing that God’s grace is for all people regardless of race, religion, creed, OR DEED. His grace is for all people. NO WONDER THE SONG WRITER CALLS IT AMAZING GRACE!

Right now think about the person you have a hard time seeing God save and know that HE IS ABLE TO DO ABUNDANTLY

#Overflow: Expand Your Expectation

Let us expand our expectation of what God is able to do in our lives. So many times we seem to feel as though if God had a totem pole we would be the low man or woman on the totem pole.

We dare not think big or dream big because big thinking can lead to big failure and big failure can lead to big embarrassment and big embarrassment leads to a pride issue…

Your age is not a prerequisite for doing something great for God. David was a young man when he single handedly defeated the Philistines because when they saw what he did to Goliath they took off running. Your education is not a prerequisite for doing something great for God. Don’t think because you didn’t graduate from school that you could never do something great for God. David spent his time in a field-watching sheep, not at Harvard.

God can do great things through ordinary people. In fact He prefers ordinary people because that way there is no debate over who is in control and deserves the credit.

ask God what it is that He would have you do and not allow your limitations in life to hinder your expectations. He can do abundantly more than you could ask or think.
