I am inspired to write about “4 Ways To Creating a Beautiful Life” because I hear from so many women who feel like they can not create a beautiful life for themselves.
A life where they are truly happy and fulfilled. A life where they can wake up everyday and actually look forward to their daily task, responsibilities and assignments. A life where they are enjoying living in the space, with the influence and with the people that has been assigned to them.
Creating a beautiful life does not mean that everything in your world has to be perfect. Creating a beautiful life does not mean you have to be rich, so you can buy your way to a beautiful life. Creating a beautiful life is created from the inside out.
You have the ability and the power to create a beautiful life, but you are going to need to make some really tough decisions, get free of people pleasing and change some mindsets to create the beautiful life that you see for yourself.
Before I tell you how to create this beautiful life, I must tell you that a beautiful life first begins with knowing who created you. It begins with having a relationship with your Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ.
God changes your heart, reveals purpose, desires and longings that are truly in your heart. God also exposes what and where we are placing our identity in. He reveals true agendas and false expectation that is put on you by yourself, and that is put on you by others.
We as women, take on everyone’s yokes and burdens. We set aside what we are truly feeling in our heart and are living everyone’s desires, purpose and happiness except our own.
We care way to much about what others think of us, we seek opinions of others when God has already revealed to us what we should be doing. Women are leaving this earth unfulfilled, unhappy and just taking what has been dealt to them. Your life do not have to remain this way. You can receive a real BREAKTHROUGH IN CREATING A BEAUTIFUL LIFE for yourself.
God tells us in Matthew 28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
I know that we all want to be pleasing to others around us. We all desire to make our life count for something, but women are feeling guilty, inadequate, unfulfilled, unhappy, condemned and this false sense of loyalty to others agendas, that it is making it impossible to create a beautiful life.
So what are “4 Ways to Creating this Beautiful Life” that I am talking about? You first have to create it in your thoughts, and then you are going to write your thoughts on paper. After you have written your thoughts on paper, you must decree and declare it in the atmosphere. After you have decreed and declared in the atmosphere, you must visualize your beautiful life.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
To create a beautiful life, you have to stop thinking negative about your life! This scripture tells us we must take our minds and think on things that are pure, lovely, good, excellent and praise worthy. Sounds like all of those words are positive to me.
WRITE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PAPER
Any time God wanted to establish something, he always told people to write it down on tablet, stone or paper. Listen to what God told Habakkuk in Habakkuk 2:2-3. Then the LORD answered me and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run.”For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.
Writing the vision of your beautiful life helps you to want to put it into action, and in time, your beautiful life will unfold.
DECREE AND DECLARE IT
Remember I told you the first steps to creating a beautiful life is turning your heart to God, when you do, God said one of the benefits is this scripture. Job 22:28 “You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways.
What does it means to decree. A decree means an official order issued by a legal authority. To declare means to say something in a solemn and empathic manner. God is saying that He has given you the power and the authority to order your days, months and your years. The way you order it, is what will be established for you.
Do you want to know what you have been allowing and decreeing in your life? Just look around you. You created the life you are now living, rather it is beautiful or not. You created it. You created the people that is part of your life. You created the environment that you are living in. The job that you work at, you created it. But I have good news for you, if you do not like some parts of your life, you can make it beautiful! All you have to do is do what I am telling you to do to create a beautiful life.
VISUALIZE YOUR NEW LIFE
Some believer thinks it is unholy or unethical to use visualization. Well, let me tell you a little secret. God is the creator and inventor of visualization. How do you think this whole Universe came to be. Wasn’t it God who created the whole world in seven days. When God created the Universe there were 3 things that he did to create it. He saw what he wanted, He spoke what he wanted and He created what He wanted. And every time God was done with what he created, He would call it Good! Guess what? God has given us the power to do the same thing in creating a beautiful life for ourselves.
Proverb 29:18 reads, “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he.
If you do not visualize your life being better, how is it going to get better?
We can complain about everything in our lives and the more we complain, the more things remain the same and eventually perish like the Bible says. We must see like God sees. We must call those things in our lives good, just like God calls them Good. We must think grand about our life in whatever state we find ourselves in. When we do, we would begin the see the beauty that has always been in our life.
You have to be GRATEFUL in your life. You have to thank God for everything. I try and practice writing down at least 10 things that I am grateful for everyday. During this exercise keeps me in a trusting, peaceful and joyous state. What I realize is, God wants me to have a beautiful life as much as I want it for myself, and He provides me with every opportunity to create this life.
What are the some of the beautiful attitudes, attributes, mindsets and things you want to see in that beautiful life? Give yourself permission to live your beautiful life.
I want you to write down exactly how you want to feel in your beautiful life and what you want your beautiful life to look like. Be realistic in your expectation in creating this beautiful life.
What do I mean when I say this. If you are already married, do not imagine yourself being married to a different man. Visualize yourself falling back in love with the husband that you are currently married to. Visualize your husband dating you again and feeling like teenagers all over again.
If you desire to live in a new house, write that down, but while you are waiting for your new house to manifest, create a beautiful life in the home you are currently living in. See yourself cleaning, organizing and removing unwanted items. Visualize yourself painting the walls in a new color and buying fresh flowers to create a beautiful atmosphere in your home.
If you are a mom, visualize yourself being confident and happy in raising your children and influencing their life in a beautiful way. Fall in love with the daily tasks that goes into motherhood like setting schedules, serving your family by making sure they have clean clothes, finding fun activities that the whole family can enjoy and creating meals for your family.
Mom and wives, visualize yourself taking care of yourself by treating yourself to a pampering session. Visualize yourself taking care of your body by exercising and eating healthy. Visualize having fun with your husband. Visualize wonderful communication, passionate loving making, laughter and friendship.
Practice saying no to things that is stealing time away from you creating this beautiful life. Anything that is feeling like a burden and a sense of false responsibility will never bring you joy. Make a list of all the ways you people please just to feel accepted or wanting people to think you are a good person or a good Christian. You are good whether you do things for people are not, because God said you are good and that settles it.
