Clay’s Corner

The corner that it’s ok to hang out on……

Forgive Us

We have not been the church that you read about or believed. We have not been the house of healing or the water for thirsty. We, the church, have not exemplified the meaning of the true gospel. At best, we have been a watered-down version of what you had hope in. For that, I must apologize. Because I was a apart of that process. I too got discouraged and tired. I let go of the reigns and just started accepting life as it happened. I will not take the route of I am only human, or we all make mistakes. All I can do is pick up from here, dust myself off and put my hand on the plow. While others will forge ahead my desire is to go back and get the ones we lost. It was never their fault, it was ours. For this very reason I am sorry. I look forward to mending those broken places and building those bridges. You matter to God and therefore you matter to me.

D.I.G.

There are so many things that we have in this life that are yet untapped. They are undiscovered and hidden. Not because it was ever Gods will for us to never find out. But rather, because we will not dig. Digging requires our physical strength as well as our focus. It requires us to change our perspective and our attitude. It means that we will have to exert ourselves in an area that looks like nothing is going to happen. Do you not know that the bible says that you have a well insider of you? You have a treasure hidden in earthen vessels. You are not going to find it by haphazardly seeking God and His will. The only way that you are going to find out what is Don’t Ignore God. Don’t Ignore God that is the acronym for DIG. Acknowledge Him in all of thy ways and He shall direct your paths. You are getting ready to step into a major breakthrough!! You need to get ready for what is about to happen!!! I am excited for you. Please share with me the testimonies that are coming behind this word.

Posting new inspiration every week


THE SUCCESS OF FAILURE

I wonder if anyone has ever taught us that failure can sometimes be our success. It sounds so crazy that this may even be a possibility but bear with me. I am convinced that we are taught wrong when it comes to life. We are only taught that victory is the only answer and winning is everything. Don’t get me wrong There is nothing wrong with motivation and encouragement and pushing people to their fullest potential. But to declare there is only one side of the story and that side is winning is wrong. We do not prepare people for life by doing so. I want to share with you that failure is okay because it is a declaration that your tried. It says that you are willing to push pass limitations and explore. When you carry this mindset, it will catapult you into your future. You will no longer be afraid of what is going to happen next. I need someone to respond and tell me how this has changed your outlook and eventually you will find that it is going to change your outcome!



PACE YOURSELF

One of the greatest problems that I see with people in general is that they are not suffering from a lack of vision or goals. They are suffering from not knowing how to pace themselves. It does not matter if you are trying to achieve a goal or accomplish a huge task. If you do not learn the simple art of pacing yourself, you will burn out inevitably. Realizing that you are a limited resource and there is only so much strength you have stored up. Expending that energy on needless task is not your assignment. I want you to reassess how and what you are doing. Recognizing your limitations and red flags are crucial in this next season to attaining your dreams. Without a clear knowledge of knowing when your mind and body have had enough you will never become successful. The moment you are cognizant of how much pressure and weight you can manage you become more effective. Breathe, I promise you that slowing down can speed up the process of what you are dealing with. Make every moment count!!! I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!!





BREAK THE CEILING

Today as I sit behind my desk in my office, I imagine how many people feel like that there is an impenetrable ceiling over their head. You might feel like no matter how hard you try nothing happens. Seemingly, you should walk away and stop even thinking that it will ever be any different. Can I encourage you with what I hear from God? You are about to BREAK THE CEILING!!! Sometimes you just have to chip away at Life. Life does not want to give in to you. Life does not want to let go. I need you to keep hammering away!! With every blow you are getting a little bit closer. With every blow you are making progress. I believe in you. I need you to hear that, you read it to fast. I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!!  In the name of Jesus, I command you to Break it!!!


DON’T LIE TO YOUR TRUTH

One of the greatest mistakes that we could ever make in life is for us to lie to our truth. I know you are probably wondering well what does he mean by that; let me explain. Life has a way of taking us into realities that we really do not want to deal with. So instead of facing the facts of what is really happening in our lives, we tell ourselves a different reality. We make it palatable if you will. No matter the dysfunction or chaos, we find a way to make it alright. What makes it even worse is that we learn to accept it as a norm and adjust our lives accordingly. Today, literally right now, I want to challenge that “truth”. I submit to you the word of God. You were supposed to have life and life more abundantly. If this is not your actual truth then what you are dealing with is a lie. The pandemic has taught me that if I have been given an opportunity to live then I want to do it to the fullest. So every day, I want you to do at least one thing to make your lie turn into a real truth. I believe in you and I know that you can do it! I will see you on the other side of you. By the way welcome to your new VICTORY!!


THE JOY OF BEING OVERLOOKED

Why me? Probably one of the most thought about questions in the human mind. The typical response to that by someone astute is, Why not you?. As if that really resolves the question you have held onto for decades. Why me then becomes the catalyst for sleepless nights and pretend to be happy outings. It becomes the invisible weight that we carry around like groceries. Today, I want to challenge you to drop the bags! Drop everything that does not agree with where you are going. You were overlooked in your last season because you did not belong there in the first place. You were called for greater. Greater shall not only be your portion but your testimony! I thank God for not allowing me to be involved or included!!! How about you?
