Only you can rewrite your ending. Are you doing what you can today, to fulfill your calling? Today counts.
When we accept the Lord as our Savior and begin to live for Him, He transforms our mind and our heart. If we are left to our own devices we became our own god. This leads to destuction as we follow our wants and needs instead of the “The Way, The Truth and The Life.”
We forgive because He forgave us. That is basic christianity, yet have you ever had to forgive someone not just for hurting you but crushing you. I have and it took a long time. I had the desire to forgive but if I was honest I was still carrying around the hurt. Its so easy to say, “you must forgive.” I agree its true. I believe what God wants from us is the desire to forgive and continually taking our brokeness to him asking for his help and healing.
There is a common phrase that says, “fake it till you make it.” The problem,with this way of thinking , is avoiding the truth of where we are. There is such freedom is believing, its okay, not to be okay. Struggles take time to work through. You are doing yourself no favor in faking it.
This scripture is one of my most quoteable ones. I use it so often, because it has a way of applying truth to our situations. I do not believe in coincidences. I believe there is purpose in all things. It also helped me with the death of my son. It allowed me to bring my feeling of being cheated to a place of gratitude. If this verse it true. My Jacob, was never supposed to grow up. He lived his life. His life was full and complete. I, then, became grateful for being his mom. I still grieve my loss, I do not grieve every mile stone.
Are you living your best life? Are you proud of where you are on the way to where you are going? Living your best life takes focus and determination but is possible. A lot of the work is in getting your mind right. Allowing your self to appreciate what you have today. Set goals that are attainable. Celebrate the little victories and be kind to yourself. Failing is just a lesson its not a stopping point. Learn, grow and move one. Don’t be afraid to fail!!!
It is so hard to comprehend that God knows everything about you and loves you deeply. Let’s be honest no one else knows the thoughts and intents of our hearts. We have the ability to allow people to see the sides of us that are the best. Yet God, can see the ugly in us and still fully loves us like no other. WOW!!! You are deeply known and fully loved!
Grief-I hated you! I believed it was you ruining my life, keeping me trapped. When I decided to allow you to move through me, I began to understand your importance. Grief is the price we pay for love. If we love, we will grieve. As time passed, I respected you, and understood you were there to help me navigate my pain. Looking back, I can see you were the great teacher of my life. It was through grief, I seen my true heart. I appreciate time, love and those around me so much more because of you. I am more patient with myself because of our time together. When it was all said and done, I am grateful for you and the person I am because of you.
Freedom, Sweet freedom. Beloved Jesus died on the cross for us to have a way to enter heaven. However, It doesn’t stop there. He died so that we can live the abundant life in the land of the leaving. We can walk in truth and love on earth. Many are hindered by pain whether its from their sins or tragic events. Pain can leave us wounded and stuck. When we release our wounds to Jesus his wounds heal us. By his strips we are healed.
When something bad happens it is normal to think, why me? Even when God wants to do something amazing in your life you might think,why me? Truth is, it rains on the just and the unjust. God uses the foolish to stumble the wise. God’s ways are not mans ways for us to understand. God has a plan for our lives. If its been filtered through the Father’s hands he will supply what we need. He will never leave us or forsake us. We are never alone. Ask instead, why not me? Life happens!
