Tonight while rearranging one of my closets, I found some costume sketches and costumes that I designed for a Praise Dance group. I can’t believe I forgot about them and I remember staying up all night sewing the vests, as it was difficult to maneuver because of the thin material. If you have dreams that you have tucked away or forgotten about, take them out again and pursue your destiny! It’s never too late! ~Musician/Producer/Writer/Educator AND “Costume Designer” All rights reserved 2009. Don’t give up on your Dreams! Patrice Tankard

Do you know anyone who is looking for an encouraging word? Maybe it is you. Everyone needs to be reassured every now and then. Your life is important to someone whether you realize it or not. Someone somewhere may be watching you and trying to pattern his or her life after yours. Most times people will not tell you this. You cannot take it for granted that no one is watching you. Someone is. Live a life that you and your family would be proud of. Make a difference in someone’s life today. Be kind, speak positive and expect great results. Watch your life. Someone else already is.
If you have not already done so, it is time to come into your own. What I mean by that is this is the time in your life to live your life to the fullest the best that you can. Start with small steps if you have to. Increase your mindset to believe that your life can change with faith, prayer, belief in God and belief in yourself. It all starts with a thought and then a dream. Embrace the things that makes you special. Be confident. Believe. Love God. Love yourself. Love others. Come into your own! ~Patrice Tankard
Happy to come into my own. ~Patrice Tankard
“The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.”
When we honor and reverence God he makes sure that we are taken care of. Weapons may form against us but will not prosper. We may feel the impact of evil, but it will not over take us.
“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” Psalm 118:8
Man is wonderful and we may have friends that are somewhat trustworthy. But we have to remember that sometimes man will fail you. The Lord will not fail you and he will take care of your concerns. Trust in the Lord for the “sure assurance” that your life, concerns and problems are in good hands.
“Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” Psalm 107:15
All we have to do is to tell of the goodness of the Lord and to witness that to others. How will people know just how good God is unless we tell them and show them? The Lord is so worthy to be praised and he deserves it. We can never pay him back for what he has done. He is the true and living awesome God.
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.” John 14:1-4
What a wonderful consolation to know that we can have peace here on earth even up to the time the Lord returns. Whatever is troubling our hearts, we can rest assure that the Lord says to not let our hearts be troubled. Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and the father grants us the awesome inheritance that has been prepared for us. In our father’s house are many mansions and they are prepared just for us. When the Lord comes again to receive us unto himself, hopefully, we will be ready and prepared to receive such a magnificent reward.
“We escaped like a bird from a hunter’s trap. The trap is broken, and we are free!” Psalm 124:7
Be encouraged today to let your wings soar. This is a new season and it is time to do new things and be free. I am very happy in my life and appreciate God for his many blessings, those blessings that were prayed for and those that were unexpected. You can have blessings and enjoy what God has just for you. Take comfort in knowing that freedom is for everyone who desires it. Be encouraged to let your wings soar and fly into your destiny.
