Grab a pen and notebook and lets dive in…
Be on guard
What is keeping you from stepping into that thing that you are most passionate about?
why is it that we hear so much about what to do and how to do it, we know so much but still manage to drift far away from Gods calling for our lives?
Are we all bipolar? Sometimes I feel like I am. In the morning I have it all together but by noon it seems as though my world has been swept from under our feet…
Why, why, why…..
Why is it that we have so much potential and passion but never act on it?
What drives people to pursue their destiny and what hold others back?
The answer seems very simple. Those people are much more intelligent, faithful and are much more bold then you are…um….NO! That’s a lie and we all know far too well who the father of ALL lies is (the enemy). The only reason others are stepping out or have stepped out is because they have taken a risk and went for it. Sometimes we need a little push or need someone in our lives who can hold our hand through that scary time of walking on water (like Peter walked on water towards Jesus).
This morning I was looking at my old pictures and admiring my slimmer bodyand thought to myself…”self, you can look like that again if you tried”. I was so motivated and ready to jump into the grime of healthy eating... Only too bad it didn’t last not even till the afternoon because by then I was craving a brownie and then though to my self “ I don’t look so bad” while whipping the chocolate off my face…#thestruggleisreal…um… feeling bipolar here again. LOL.
All seriousness, why can’t we just stick to so much information that we already have and carry on the calling that so many people seem to be doing?
Maybe we are too distracted with a recent hurt in a relationship. Maybe we are embarrassed because we failed too many times in the past? Have you told yourself that you will never step out and never allow yourself to get hurt again? What you may not be realizing is that you are only hurting yourself.
Let’s do some soul digging….ask yourself, “what is really holding you back’? take a moment….now answer this in your daily journal.
I pray that whatever it is that is keeping you from moving forward is destroyed in the name of Jesus. That every baggage, broken relationship, hurt, pain, pity, doubt, regret, sorrow, every lie spoken over your life is destroyed in the name of Jesus!
Don’t let them win!
yell out your passion from the rooftop!
Get that pen and notebook…Lets ask God to reveal what He wants us to hear in these versus….and lets go!!!
1 Peter 5:7-9
7. Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8. Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour 9. Resist him, standing firm in your faith and in the knowledge that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering.
After reading the 3 versus, write down what God reveals to you.
Here is what God has showed me with these versus:
1. God cares about your life right now. Whether you are a businessperson or a stay at home mama, He cares about all of you and about all that you are doing. If you are struggling with something, give it to God and allow Him to deal with it, you will be glad that you did…trust me…I just had to do this a few weeks ago.
2. Don’t get distracted with so much worrying in your mind but really focus and have a clear mind all the time because the enemy is very crafty and he will try to distract you in order to destroy you.
3. Don’t give into the enemy’s scams. Hold on to and stand strong in all that you already know. Be relieved that so many people around you are going through the same kind of things that you are and many have already gone through it, just be opened to getting encouragement from them so that you too can get through a difficult time in your life.
"he will try to distract you in order to destroy you".
