Prayer is crucial and critical to our growth in the Lord.
- Have you ever become stagnant, un sure of why you may not be growing.. feeling stuck?
- If you find yourself having the same issue over and over thinking “I thought that I was over that?”.
- Or unable to break habits…
- Are you not feeling happy, joyful etc..
- Do you have questions…
- Are there areas where you need help in or guidance?
Then, let me ask you – how is your prayer life?
Are you in conversation with the Lord seeking his face, casting your cares before His feet?
Talk to God – He listens and answers! He can provide anything that you are looking for:
- Restoration: Joy, Peace, Right Mind…
But like any relationship, communication is important. Don’t worry about what you sound like or what it looks like. Prayer is intimate, and it’s between you and God.
He’s just waiting for you!
Sometimes you just need a simple reminder in regards to who you are!
Its common to be affected by what someone may say to you, and how someone may treat you, mentally, physically and emotionally..how ever – it doesn’t have to shape the way that you live. Treatment of others doesn’t have to become YOUR IDENTITY.
Regardless of the situation/circumstance, and its affects on us, no matter how it has bent us, shaped us…we have the ability to bounce back – to recover readily!
We have the option to not look like what we’ve been through….
To not respond how we use to respond, how we’ve been responded to, or how the situation would suggest that we behave!
So, next time….. Respectively decline when others try to serve you negativitea..
No thank you, I’m good. I have my own tea!
There’s something so serene and satisfying with being comfortable. It’s convenient, easy, and predictable. It lacks passion, determination, a sense of urgency, and risk. A lot of times to have faith in comfort-ability – is unneeded.
I DARE YOU TO DO SOMETHING…..
and transition out of familiar and challenge yourself to sweat a little.
Stop choosing problems that you already and easily know the answer to – pick a critical thinking question – one that deserves a little more time and thought.
Challenge yourself by CHALLENGING YOURSELF!
Rather it’s on a job – a particular position; a fear – public speaking; a talent – singing/acting, writing, play writing, Youtube channel, dance, etc. Go beyond what you are use to.
Cast down in the name of Jesus Christ every thought that says;
- I can’t….
- I’m unqualified….
- I don’t have time….
- I don’t have the money….
- I’m afraid….
- What if I look silly….
- What if I mess up….
- I tried already ….
- I’ve never done that before…..
- That’s not me….
- Insert whatever excuse is holding you back here:__________________________________________________________…..
It will be uncomfortable, a little challenging, require a little more effort, thought, passion, determination, and FAITH! But like my dance instructor says,
“if it feels like you look crazy, you’re probably doing it right!”
Stop being your worst critic and allow yourself to grow.
Allow God to show you who you are.
