As I sit here and think of last week compared to this week, there was a drastic change. Who would’ve thought we’d be told going outside isn’t safe. Or what about school isn’t safe, work place isn’t safe? Have you took time out of this situation and thought maybe God has done this to only get our attention?
God wants the focus on him. We may think the worst over this situation but what if this all happened for relationships to be mended? Love to be restored? God wanted to renew some things so therefore he disrupted. I pray that we take things seriously and not take things for granted. Many lives were lost, we panicked, we faced fear but through it all we’ll overcome this together. This too shall pass.
Mark 4:35-41 Jesus was the calm of the storm. As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “Even the wind and waves obey him!”
This will soon vanish & things will be back to normal. Pray, Repent, Ask, & Yield. By his blood we are all covered.
You doubt yourself, you worry why and how. You no longer put up the whole Armor of God somehow you tend to let Satan get the best of you. You let disappointments win you over, you see no way on how you’ll make it through.
Today I’m here to tell you that YOU HAVE POTENTIAL! In life I find that all we need is encouragement, we need uplifting, we need to be told you got it. As I read (Proverbs 3:26) it indicates “the Lord is our security (our protector) he will keep our foot from being caught in a trap.” This scripture gives us the answer we need to move further in life.
Our biggest fear is going forward being afraid we’ll get stuck but here it tells us as bright as day he will protect us and keep us from being jammed. There’s no reason to hesitate or doubt anything in life with God on our side he’s paving the sidewalk smooth to keep us from stumbling.
It’s never to late to achieve so don’t think at any given moment the time isn’t fit for you. Don’t hold yourself back from doing what God has called you to do because of self doubt. No longer say I can’t this is the year of 20/20 vision this is the year we see clearer vision with using the words I Can, I Will! As soon as you step out God will pull things out of you that you had no idea you were capable of doing.
As I read Proverbs 31 my overall summary was on this woman who was a provider, she was strong and unafraid. This woman carried her own. She’s a hard worker who takes care of her household. She’s trustworthy and valuable. This was a woman walking in purpose and filled with wisdom.
This is a woman of gratitude, no where laziness transpired. She didn’t procrastinate nor stop this was a fearfully made woman. So ask yourself what are the similarities? How does this woman differ from who I am? Am I the procrastinator or the go-getter I know I’m capable of being? My advice to you is don’t hold yourself back any longer from accomplishing what’s meant for you in life. Don’t be afraid to believe in yourself. Let God reveal your true identity & live in that moment. You have potential to be who you want to be it starts with self. You are powerful and created for purpose.
We all want things when we want them but few are willing to wait. What are the odds of receiving things when we planned versus receiving when God planned? Quite frankly that’s how it goes. Maybe it’s financially you’re overwhelmed praying for a breakthrough or maybe it’s life in general whereas your bad days outweigh the good. Sometimes God takes us through hardship to get us prepared for his greatness. Don’t question why you’re going through life ups and downs instead stand firm and fight your way through.
As I was headed home I always take time and talk to God so this specific conversation was basically on waiting for my spouse and being clear on the things I ask of God in my significant other. I compared waiting as it is to baking a cake.
You have certain ingredients you use to make this cake vice versa the things we ask of God in our mate.
What made me compare the two was the waiting process on how we sit but not rush the timing. We do other things in the mean time to keep us occupied while we wait.
We wait patiently throughout the baking process for the cake to rise which is liquid then it rises to this cake texture same as it is to waiting while you’re single being alone to yourself and then you’re blessed with what you waited for.
I think we should learn to be more patient look at it as if we take the cake out to early it’s not done same as if we rush God for love and we have someone come into our life and we’re not as ready as we think we are at the moment which makes us reject.
I feel as if when love happens it’ll happen when the time is right just make sure to not want the process to be of faster speed because you’ll end up receiving something/mate that’s not ready!
Clearly we all have a purpose rather you have discovered your calling we are all here for a specific reason. While going through my transition in life I found myself losing people close to me and it affected me in every way. I had people talking down on me I went through a stage I was so discouraged I dropped my pen gave up writing for a minute I nearly let someone stuck all the energy inside of me I was weak felt like I was battling demons but later I realized it was all a TEST.
I had to realize everyone will not be happy for you because of how God blesses you not only that but smiling is contagious to the miserable & people will do everything they can to knock you down when they see you’re happy. When I battled what I was going through the people around me motivated me I wasn’t judged they understood the changes of life & how things impacts our lives.
At this point in my life I’m so grateful to be surrounded by the ones who encourage me even when I slip I’m back realigned and that’s what life is about having someone there you can rely on not being around jealousy but of love . Moral of the story no matter how hard life gets you can’t get through it alone, make sure the people you surround yourself with are people of encouragement & people of understanding.
Understanding that life battles are hard and at times we come across the bumps. Often times I think we’re afraid to drive over instead we detour not knowing what’s ahead. I’m a firm believer in keep pushing keep continuing don’t be afraid to leap over because greater is ahead. Moral of the story no matter how hard life gets no matter how tough times get no matter what you’re facing keep pushing but understand that in any given moment your life can be changed. You have to KNOW that this isn’t the life God has planned and believe he’ll take you higher. The pain you may be facing won’t compare to the joy that’ll be replacing.
