Don’t Let How You Feel… Make You Forget What You’re Worth

You can make broken look beautiful… and make strong look invincible. You can walk with the world on your shoulders, and make it look like you are walking with a pair of wings. That’s what walking by faith looks like. It is then that nothing can defeat you, and nothing can get the best of you. Yet it can only happen if you trust GOD.

Sometimes, it will seem like with all of the possibilities life has to offer, you just don’t measure up, and it might make you feel useless. Then, those thoughts might get you to thinking about your dreams, all you want to be, all you want to do, and where you want to go, but you for whatever reason, just don’t how to get there. Somehow, these thoughts might make you feel a sense of brokenness.

Hold your head up. Listen up! Remember, broken crayons still color! Therefore, even in the midst of tears and heartache and brokenness, you have to be able to find your strength. First, though, you have to be able to allow yourself to heal.

The struggle you are in today is developing the strength you need to face tomorrow. Have faith in the fact that you are “Fearfully and wonderfully made.” You are not made to stay broken. You are not made to stay down. Moreover, you were not created to be defeated.

Your greatest strength lies deep inside you. Look within. Dig into your power! GOD is there… and HE is waiting to be called upon to supply your needs, and fix everything has caused you to feel broken. Allow it to happen.

When you focus your thoughts on GOD, everything about you can be brighter and more joyful. When you feel weighed down with problems, however, it is easy to become anxious and nervous about what comes next.

Still, never allow the default setting in your mind make you focus more on problem-solving than depending on GOD’s ability to solve problems.  Instead of allowing your thoughts to flow towards what’s wrong and how to fix it, pray and allow GOD to determine what the next step is, to help correct what is wrong.

Always See Your Life As Being “INCREDIBLE”

If you were to get everything you wanted, now… all at once: What would there be to look forward to? What would there be to hope for? What would your future look like? What would you wait in expectation for tomorrow?

~ P. Williamson

 

I’ve notice that in the past, like many people, I was always wishing I was doing something different, thinking about what I would do in the future, making plans for my life to come, reading (with jealousy) about cool things other people were doing.

Learn To Enjoy Life For What It Is…

We always want things to be different. We don’t know why… we just do. So, we strive to improve things – even ourselves – when we are unsatisfied with how things are. But then what? Most times, we are still unsatisfied, because the underlying cause of our problems isn’t the things around us, but it’s our expectation of things.

Accept What Scares You. But Don’t Let It Stop You…

You can do it. Yet, you have to know it can be done. The fear you feel… you can overcome it. But, overcoming takes practice. Then, more practice. And even as you learn to overcome one fear… soon after, another fear will appear, and you have to practice a new set of tactics all over again. But still, you can overcome it… because you are an overcomer.

Don’t Do Everything, “Just Because” Everyone Else Is…

Choose your path. Having a happy life is about making your own choices. The way everyone else does things won’t work for you all the time. That’s a simple, but true fact. A life filled with possessions does not equal happiness. And, just because everyone else thinks something should be done a certain way, it doesn’t mean it’s the best way, or the only way.

Fear Is Harmless… Unless You Give It the Energy to Harm You

Even when you do… fear doesn’t sleep. It’s all around you. It’s never satisfied unless it has your attention. Whenever fear can’t get your attention while you are awake, it will do its best to insert itself into your midnight thoughts – even your dreams – if you allow it.

Fear affects our lives in unseen ways, causing worry, hesitation, confusion, anxiety and avoidance. It can bring you to your knees… even cripple your lifestyle and your peace – if you allow it.

Fear can stop you from taking risks.

Fear can stop you from pursuing love.

Fear can stop you from speaking in public.

It can cause you discomfort. It can cause you to procrastinate, overeat, and be distracted with worry. Continue reading Fear Is Harmless… Unless You Give It the Energy to Harm You
