Thought For Today - 10/21/11, Baby -Jude Michael



Congratulation to Erik & Katey on their first child - Jude Michael, born Thursday, October 13, 2011 at 6:22pm, at 8 pounds!  

Both parents are Yoga students and this is a Yoga baby!  They were yet practicing Yoga with me up to a couple of weeks before he was born.  What a blessing he is!


Love you 3!

Thought For Today - 10/19/2011


It has been a month since I last posted on this blog.  I must say it's good to come back to it!  The past several months and especially past several weeks have been very interesting regarding my studio - Soul Motivation.

We are yet in progress of getting ready to open hopefully around the middle of November.  
I will keep you posted.

I wanted to share today something I'm learning more and more . . . We make our world better each time we acknowledge that all things are working for our benefit, including the people we encounter.

Learn how to draw from the positive aspects around you.  As you do you will experience an understanding that will increase your growth to new levels and will prove as opportunities to your happiness and satisfaction.

Make every moment count as you appreciate all the things you encounter, knowing that it will have and make such an impact in your life that will last and put you in position to help others too!


Love you all!

Thought For Today - 9/16/2011



















There are times that I have been in such a need, wondering what I was going to do in certain situations when suddenly I would hear a Word from God or a scripture down on the inside of me.

Then, immediately I would know exactly what the answer was to my situation.  At that very moment I was helped by the Word of God that was dwelling on the inside of me.

I'm saying all of the above to encourage you to keep your prayer life, reading the Word life fresh and new each day with God.  Don't get so busy doing so many other things that you neglect the time with Him.

Love you,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 9/11/2011















Ten year ago today I was an Oracle DBA. My life changed, took a 180 degree turn because of it. 


I knew there was something on the inside of me that could change other's eternal destiny. My current job was not it. 


I made a decision I was going to make a difference with others - no matter what. I'm now doing what I'm called to do, have not looked back. 


Love you all!

Ok, many, many things have occurred since last I wrote an entry.  My laptop crashed twice and could not be repaired.  Yep!  I ended up purchasing a MacBook and now I'm back!

The studio is progressing, we have finished the design stage, now making sure odds and ends will be taken care of.  Looking to sign the lease within a week or week and a half.  Then, construction will start.  Yes!

I will keep you posted and you can also stay connected via our facebook page:

If there is anything I can specifically lift up before the Lord for you - let me know. My prayer is that you are prospering in every area of your life and God’s blessing is in you, on you and flowing through you.


Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 8/1/2011














Yes, it has been a while since I last wrote a blog . . .

Many things have occurred since the last blog and they are all good.  I'm now living in Dallas, about 5 minutes from where Soul Motivation Yoga studio will be located.  I also have been meeting with teachers and staff that will join me at the studio when it opens.  A very exciting time!

Just a reminder, there will be circumstances that come into our lives, no matter how challenging, we can trust God that we are ready for them.  With His strength, direction, guidance we don't have to fear, but know that He is there for and with us - connecting us to where we are supposed to be.:)

Much love,

Thought For Today - 7/19/2011

 










If you are feeling run down, bored, with no energy to do what you are currently doing with your life, you are probably not doing what you are called to do.

Take time to become quiet, see what is in your spirit, your heart.  It may take a prayer / meditation time, reading the Word - to gain the clarity you need.  From personal experience, it will be worth the effort, time and wait!

As you get the clear direction on what you are to do, don't ask for others opinion on what God has revealed to you.  When you truly know what you are to do - just do it.  By this, you are honoring God.

Then, take note on how you are feeling.  You will no longer feel run down, bored and you will have all the energy you need and more to do those things!  Yes, I'm writing from experience.  :)

Much love,
Joseph

It is not an accident that I'm practicing and teaching Yoga at this point in my life!  The same for you too - no accident that you are doing what you are currently doing!

But, this is not the end, for you nor for me.  There are many greater things we are to do in this life and more people we are to "speak" into their lives.

My responsibility and yours?  Stay faithful, stay encouraged, continue our love walk, keep believing and keep the hope alive! 

Much love,

Thought For Today - 7/12/2011














Pretty simple thought today . . .

Allow God to shed His light on your relationship.  Get a God (Love) revelation of that fact that we are all part of each other.

Allow God's love to flow in all of your relationships.  Learn to walk in Love!

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 7/10/2011














There are times I wish I could just ask someone to give me answers to the situations I'm dealing with.  But, that would be the easy way out? 

Really?  Yes, because if others give me answers to my problems, etc., I may enjoy success for a while, but then another situation will come along because I will still be making the same incorrect choice.

So, I came to the conclusion I had to buckle down and do my own praying and asking God for His direction on my situations, etc.  As I became discipline to start searching out the things of God, I got permanent answers. 

In doing this I also learn how to make adjustments in my life that keeps me looking to Him (God) for everything and every answer!

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 7/7/2011

 











There will always be opportunities for me to share encouraging words to individuals.  I know this is one of the gifts God has placed in my life.  I trust God for His wisdom in guidance and direction.

There will be days in many lives that circumstances, situations, conditions, etc. will not make sense and their mind will be begin to "play tricks" with them, telling them lies.

Those days will present me opportunities to share the good news . . . 

  • God love them, 
  • He has a master plan for their lives, 
  • They are to trust Him to see them through this time in their lives.

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 7/5/2011

 











As I am drawing near to opening up Soul Motivation Yoga Studio I will begin to share more of what this studio is about in my blogs . . . 
The Yoga I teach is about helping people focus their intentions on their spirit, soul (mind) and body and pretty much in this order.  

The Yoga I teach from my point of view will completely transform (change) you (if you allow it) from the inside / out.

Of course, you will have to visit and take class (or a few) with me to understand what I wrote above.  Many have experienced some type of awaking, knowing, feeling of hope, love, peace and rest from taking only one class with me.

Meditation will be part of the change from the inside / out.

Much love, 
Joseph

On this 4th of July 2011, I give thanks to God for this great nation. 
I'm so thankful for all of the blessings we have. I count them one by one. 
I know God will continue to multiply us with good things. All He need is our complete trust and faith in Him.

Thought For Today - 7/3/2011














Short to the point and so true . . .

Forgiveness is giving - giving of love, giving of peace, and all the blessings of life to the other.  As you (including me) give, you will receive.

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 6/27/2011

 












From personal experience it seems like it's easier not to forgive people and simply cut them out of our lives.  

In some cases this might be the correct thing to do, yet even in that case, we can only be free if we have truly forgiven them.

Again, from personal experience choosing to forgive people is making a choice to rid myself of that burden, choosing to be free of the past, and choosing to live and walk in love in the present.

Something to think about?
Much love, 
Joseph

Thought For Today - 6/24/2011












I have more than 37 years of proof that God has never let me down.  He has never disappointed me one time.  God has answered all my prayers because I learned to pray according to His will.

God has been my Source all these year.  And, not only has He met my needs, He has blessed me and given me the ability to be in a position to help meet the needs of other until they discover Him as their Source.

Consider this as I have, God who is the Source is greater than your dreams, your hopes, your thoughts and your needs.  It does not matter what is going on around you.  You have a Source that is with you.  Depend on Him!

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 6/22/2011


















We can talk love all day long, but when people hear us speak, can they hear love?  When people look into our eyes when they feel like they have failed in areas of their lives, can they see the love of God in our eyes?

The bigger question is can people that once knew us in a previous life-style see changes that God has made in us?  When we open our mouths, act and react to situations, can they see God?

Well, they should if we say He (God) lives in us!  They should see a change.  They should sense His presence.  They should see, feel, experience and enjoy the love of God just by being around us.

From personal experience, if they do, then, His love will draw them not only to you in a deeper way, but draw them to Him.  That is what it is all about - allowing God to love others through us - drawing them to Him.

By the way, God's commands us to love, we don't have a choice.  At least I don't.  :)

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 6/13/2011

 
















This is pretty simple, make yourself a list of just 5 things that excites you.  Don't get into the details.   

After you create the list, immediately find ways to integrate each one into your daily or weekly routine.

In doing this you will find yourself going through life in a wave of total excitement that will lift you up and maybe others.  They will then see (as you will see) life is worth living!

Much love,

You can become addicted to loving people unconditionally. 
All you have to do is make a decision to give yourself to it. Once you do, you will never be willing to live without doing it. 
Yep, it has happen to me. :)

Thought For Today - 6/4/2011













For me praying is what keeps me in tune and connected with God.  I have no lasting success without His guidance.

My praying on a daily basis includes while I'm driving, exercising and even teaching.  Just praying on a daily basis has changed my life and affairs.

Also, I don't wait until some big problem comes along to pray, I learned to pray without ceasing so that my life has a constant demonstration of God's goodness, favor, and love.  As I continue this path, it helps to keep out and prevent incoming fear and despair.

You too, can start today or tonight - praying while you work and praying while you rest.

Much love,
Joseph

Keep The Dream Alive!

Soul Motivation Yoga studio was birthed over 2 years ago.  It became a dream that I believe God placed in my heart.  I didn't allow the dream or desire to die down or out - well maybe die down some. :)

The fire became strong again the first of January 2011.  The pursuing was then on!  I didn't settle and now the reality of the dream is coming about - what God placed there some time ago.

The key to keeping your dreams alive is standing strong in your faith, believing God and that He has not forgotten what He promised.

We we commit and stay faithful to the promises of God for our lives, it will not be long before we see the fulfillment come truth.

Keep believing!

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 5/31/11















I could not do and can not do what I'm doing if I didn't have the love of God residing on the inside of me.

I can talk all day, but until you experience God's love on a individual level you really can't relate to what I'm saying.  Because of God's love on the inside of me I can face challenges in confidence knowing that Love has the situation under control.

Yes, God's love gives you the ability, the might, the power to overcome situations or problems that come your way.  Love will have you look at the matter through the eyes of Love - God.

If you are not experiencing this type of love, ask God right now to fill you up with His love.  In so doing, you will begin to give up every area of your life to Him - for His love to start the change.

I did!

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 5/29/11


















I must admit (as I generally do) I'm a blessed individual.  I am constantly thanking God for all who He is in my life.

Daily I take inventory on what is going on inside of me.  I seek within to see if I'm at peace, am I holding onto offenses from others, have I lost the trust in people that I once trusted and finally does my heart and actions/reactions go hand and hand together?

At the end of the matter whatever I find in the inventory and if it's not agreeing with the Word of God, I immediately ask God to help me by faith to change so I can continue to please Him!

God is too good for me to keep anything in my heart that is not pleasing to Him.  Love has everything to do with it.


Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 5/25/2011













There will come a time in your life that you need to slow down, stop and listen to what God is saying.  God mainly from personal experience speaks in a whisper.  

If order for me to hear His whispers I had to disconnect myself from being such a busy bee (so to speak).

Once I made the decision to slow down or stop completely I begin to hear clearly the whispers of God.  Yes, it took time, but more of a commitment from me to move away from the fast-moving world around me.

To my surprise when I did this the first words I heard from God was "Joseph, I love you."  Just these four words changed my life!

Much love,
Joseph

Now it the time and the hour is here for me, you, to come into the place where we can be used of God to do whatever He wants to do.
We have waited patiently and eagerly.  We did get discouraged, but we are not now, we are no longer sitting around discouraged but we are hopeful, positive and full of expectancy to fulfill the will of God!
We are ready Expect great things to happen and change just for you. God is moving and turning things around.  He will deliver every promise too.
Yep, I speak from experience.

Soul Motivation Yoga studio is a story of God's favor and love for me and those attending classes, events, etc. there.  He is the one that has accelerated this process!

This studio is a faith project and I believe God can do anything.  All it takes is for you to stay faithful and one day you will be where He wants you to be!

There will be challenges to get you disappointed and try to set you back and some criticism from so-call friends and family.  Yet, this is not the time to get discouraged, but use it to push your forward!

With God on your side, you will keep moving forward and at a fast pace- than you ever thought!

Thought For Today - 5/16/2011















I can not imagine spending any part of my day and not finding time to take a few moments to commune with God.  My life will never be that busy!  

Experiencing time with God simply means taking time each day to be alone and sometimes quiet in His presence.  God should be the center of all our lives.

There are days that my schedule is very busy and the thought of finding time to be still, quiet and listen can be exhausting.  But, it is during these times that I need to be in God's presence the most.  

When I do take the time, it is such a joy to be in God's presence and I want to spend more time with Him because He is the center of my life!

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 5/15/2011



















There will be times in your life that you "miss it" when it comes to making decisions or choices in life.  Whatever the decisions or choices were does not in my opinion mean you didn't hear God's voice on this.  You just didn't take the time necessary to hear it clearly.

But, even in this, and because of God's amazing love for us, there is yet a way out.  You might not be sure how and what the answer is, but as I have done in the past, you simply ask for forgiveness, ask God to help you with this situation and by faith believe He will see you through it with expectations beyond what you could ever possibly imagine.

Love ones, God will comfort you, take care of you, keep you from falling, keep you moving forward in His Master Plan for your life as you acknowledge Him.  Yep, I speak from experience. :)

Love you,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 5/11/2011











Everything seems to be moving fast in my life and probably yours too.  It seems like we woke up one morning and there it was - God's touch is on everything we do.
Personally, it seem to me like what took maybe years in the past is now only taking months, weeks, days and even hours.  I see God moving me into a place that I can minister quickly to individual hurting emotionally (spiritually) to the point where they don't have to go through a 3, 7, 10 or 12 step program.
Yes, I see God moving me, you, us faster and further than we ever imagine.  He is working in our lives.  His Master Plan for our lives is now unfolding right before our very eyes.  Don't resist, just embrace it, trust Him and let it flow. :)
Love you,

Thought For Today - 5/9/2011











The past several days I have been challenged with relationships.  Relationships are very important to me, especially the individuals in the very small circle I'm connected too.  
One of the challenge was to stand firm on my communication on a certain subject.  The subject was also relationships.  My firm stand as I communicated was to always act, live and walk in love.  Offense will come, but it is our choice to receive it or not.
I know God wants us all to maintain a love connection and live in peace with everyone.  From personal experience, sometimes maintaining the love connection and living in peace has to be from a distance for a while.
I suggested to pray for their relationships.  As they do, something not only happens to the individual they are praying for, but something happens to them.  This is how I see God working most of the time.  
In conclusion my suggestion was to pray for them, help them anyway they could if possible. God could and would then be able to appear on the scene.  
We must keep our spirits open to receive and not allow offense to come.
Love you!
Joseph

Thought For Today - 5/8/2011







From personal experience with knowing others and doing this myself, God can take an average person and move them into a position(s) where some of the major leaders in the community will inspire to be around them.

Theses individuals (average people) can and have changed their communities, their companies and their world!

Choose today to make God your Source of lifestyle.  Yes, studying, attending school, etc. can help you become a leader.  However, with your choice also focusing on God and His Master Plan for your life is way more effective!  

Take the extra moments to pay close attention to hear what God is calling you to do!

Love you,

Thought For Today - 5/6/2011














I have said this many times in class and wrote about it in my blog.  I believe it may need repeating. :)  Where ever you are today in your life is where you need to be.

However, where you are today in your life is not where you are suppose to stay!  In God, we move forward, not staying still, nor moving backward.  In God, there is only increase, blessings and favor. 

Today, get or re-get the vision of God's Master Plan for you life.  Keep it in front of your thoughts, words, etc. Take it by faith.  Then, one day it will be a reality.  Yes, I talk (write) from personal experience.  This works! :)

Thought For Today - 5/4/2011













It took me a while to get here.  But, now that I'm here, no turning back!  I am continuing to become rooted and grounded in love - the love of God.

Everything I see, hear and do becomes based on love.  And as I continue to plant God's love commandment deep into my heart and my thinking, I have discovered new ways to keep this commandment. :)

Yes, applying love in every situation has not only become second nature, it has actually revolutionize every aspect of my life.  If you want the same and need help - contact me.

Much love,

Thought For Today - 5/3/2011













For several year when I would wake up, I use to rush out of bed, rush to eat, rush to get ready, rush to get out of the house, and the list goes on and on for the day.  Those were the days I actually left home in a state of fear and unhappiness which in turn caused a handicap for me.

One day after spending time in my car almost begging God for help in areas of my life, I heard on the inside I needed to start my day off with God, in prayer, in meditation, in listening to what He has to say.

In summary, now I leave home in poise and peace.  I spend time in prayer, reading, meditation or just one-on-one communication with God.  I do all of this before I eat.  I do all of this the minute I get out of bed and before anything else.

Let me suggest you try this too.  For example, pray over your family and leave them with God's favor ringing in their ears.  Let them know you love them too!  Try this and see what happens.

Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 5/2/2011


















For me the teachings of Jesus Christ is a way of life.  I can not deny them and follow my own rule and way.  No, I take His teaching which was of LOVE. 

By Jesus' own acts, He gave the world the map for individual and world peace and salvation.  I have accepted His doctrine as a way of life.  In doing so my life has changed.

The main focus or theme I got from Jesus and I use is "loving one another as He loved us."  If we faithfully practice this, we all will find peace within ourselves and within the entire world.

Much love,

Yesterday I was teaching class and saw a student by the look on her face had travel to the future.  I went up to her, saw her becoming overwhelmed (it was not the Yoga pose she was performing - she had it down pretty good) looked her in they eyes, and invited her back to the present!  

The present is all we really have.  The past - we can't do anything about it and the future will take care of itself.   The student immediately "Thanked me" for bringing her back." :)  Much love,

Thought For Today - 4/27/2011


















I look at part of my responsibility as a Yoga instructor is to push and encourage students attending classes I teach to be the best they can be!  Many even come back later and tell me they appreciate the push, encouragement and advice.

On a personal level I learned many things the hard way.  I even heard many say "they had to learn the hard way, so should I."  That may have some merit to it, but I prefer to not see others struggle as I did. :)

So, whenever I can and whatever I can do to help them get to the next level in their lives I'm going to do it!    I see it as an investment in their lives and in the Kingdom of God!  It's all about love - so shall it be!

Much love,

Thought For Today - 4/25/2011


















Many students attending Yoga classes I teach come for several reasons, including stress relief, relief from some type of body pain, just to name a couple.  However, most ended up experiencing a spiritual awaking that they were unaware of.

Now comes the part of their Yoga practice that reflects their inner being which brings up questions surrounding who they are, their purpose in life, again, just to name a couple.

I tell students when they come into the spiritual experience or awaking in this part of their Yoga practice, they now don't have a choice but to deal with the experience.

I point them to the "Word."  I point them to God.  I point them to spending time in meditation.  I also suggest them to practice Yoga (with me) as much as they can.  There is so much I'm not able to put here in this blog about this subject and experience.

I can only say that the Yoga I teach is spiritual, emotional and physical.  God is spirit, mind and body.  Yoga can and will bring you close to God.  Yoga can help bring you closer to being "whole," nothing broken and nothing missing.

Much love,
Joseph

Yes, today is the day I celebrate Easter.  This is what the love of God is all about and for all to witness.  He sent His Son Jesus, who died for us and rose again.  The victory was won!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16
And, because of this, we now experience the fullness of God's blessing, grace and love!

I often tell my sons how much I love them, appreciate them and proud of them.  I'm thankful that I learned as a parent early on to not push my agenda, ideas, or thoughts of what type of job they should have, etc.

I wanted them to live their own lives and make their own decisions.  I trust God regarding their decisions too.  I know I along with their mother raised them in the fear and knowledge of God.  There is no doubt that God has a calling and purpose for each of them individually to do.

We, as parents are to be happy knowing that we taught our children the correct path to follow.  If they don't follow the path exactly, don't worry, have faith they will come back. :)  

One major thing you can do for your children is pray God's will over their lives.  Believing in faith that God has everything under control.  In doing this you as the parent will find peace and rest for your soul! :)

Much love,

Thought For Today - 4/21/2011

 












First thing I do each morning when I get up is to acknowledge God.  Starting each morning grounded for the new day along with deepening my relationship with God.

I run into many people who do the opposite.  They start their day rushing, not being grounded and end up having most of the time a challenging day, from start to finish. 

From personal experience, when I start my day off with God and welcome Him into my day, it gives me the opportunity to clear whatever happen the day or night before and start fresh.  I know this sounds pretty simple, but it is just that.  Try it and maybe let me know how your day turns out. :)

Much love,

The evidence of my obedience and dedication to God is the love I have for others.  It doesn't matter who they are.  It is the true, pure, unfailing love of God manifesting itself in one's life that sets them apart from other people.

It was a revelation to me, walking in love and forgiveness toward others.  In doing this I experience such a great and mighty power of God that His Spirit just flows on the inside of me. :)

Today, how about you making the quality decision today to commit yourself to obeying God, walking in love and forgiveness toward all.  From personal experience, if you do, you will never be the same.
Much love,
Joseph

Thought For Today - 4/16/2011


















There are days that seem more challenging then others and even to the point of being overwhelming.  Here is the time when you don't feel your way through the challenges, but you stand on what you know which is Faith and patience.  

You must remind yourself that you have been down this path before.  Maybe not the same situation, etc., but you have been down it.  And, when you look back at what happen, you see that God saw you through and His promises were true!

From personal experience you have to press your way through all of the challenges, putting and keeping your eyes on the promises of God that He will get you through this!  As I was telling my oldest son - Jeffrey just the other day, you have to grab hold of a bull-dog faith.  Don't let go!
Much love, 
Joseph

Thought For Today - 4/14/2011



















More and more I understand that it is so important for me to know that God knows how to bring me out of trouble.  Really, there is nothing God doesn’t know how to handle.

My major part is to pray and invite God into the situation.  I must trust Him, putting my entire life in His hands!  On the other side, fear and doubt which is the opposite of God will hinder and stop me from receiving God's help.

Thought For Today - 4/12/2011













Several individuals have asked what will happen if I don't raise the necessary funding for Soul Motivation Yoga studio to open.  My answer?  God has everything under control! :)

From personal experience, whatever I need today, tomorrow and the next day, God is my source.  He is my supplier.  I have seen Soul Motivation Yoga studio open for business.  I have accessed it by faith.

I'm not trying to figure it out in my natural mind how everything is going to come together.  I just know that God is going to get the credit for it happening!  I believe, therefore, I receive.

Soul Motivation Yoga studio will open!

Thought For Today - 4/10/2011

 














There have been times in my life that I felt I was so alone in all that I was doing.  In fact, I felt like what I was doing had no importance.  One day, I mentioned this to my oldest son Jeff.  Yep, twenty something years younger, he said Dad, you are never alone, don't ever say that!

He then went on to comment more on several things that made me think, rethink and get a new prospective on my comments.

In that short conversation with my son, I rediscover the abilities I had that affected and impacted so many lives.  I was not alone.  And, from our conversation, I discover and gain an awareness of new exciting things that would enable me to be of more service to others.   

The Source to all of this was and is God. With Him, I'm never alone.  It brought about a time and opportunity to reconnect with God and others and experience a new energy like never before.

Much love, 
Joseph
