Vulnerability is the gatekeeper that leads you towards opportunity. I wrote my last post on the power of owning your story. And the more I walk with God, the more I discover not only the power to own your story, but the power in owning your disappointments. Three days after my 23rd birthday, I got…
Into the Unknown
Life with Jesus includes stepping out into the great unknown and trusting, and God wants to equip you for that journey. Don’t be afraid of drowning when you are living by faith. Your heart will take you where your head can’t fit.
Grace Over Perfection
I spent too many hours stuck on the pursuit of what this world classifies as perfection. Since it is something I am unable to attain, it’s a foolish pursuit that doesn’t yield any fruit. Grace is the ability to walk in freedom knowing who my identity is founded in and from that understanding, my words, my thoughts and my actions are a reflection of the confidence given to me by Christ.
Stress, Not Today.
When you are stressed out, you’ve taken on responsibilities of things you don’t have the power to carry. Jesus is not surprised by your stress, anxiety, and exhaustion. He instead invites you to walk with Him so He can give you the peace you are seeking.
52 weeks ago, I celebrated my 21st birthday and here I am again celebrating my 22nd. One of the best ways you can be intentional with your life is to always be growing. The decisions you make today determine the stories you tell about your life tomorrow. So, the best decision you can make is always the next one. People who never get started leave no room for ambiguity. Therefore, decide today to take steps that will move you closer to becoming all that God has made you to be. I know that It takes a lot of courage and bravery to step out in faith but we were not meant to stay confined within the limits of fear.
What is stopping you from reaching your goals? What is holding you back from taking that trip, starting that business, publishing that book, losing that weight, writing that song, filming that tutorial……?( and the list can go on forever……) I believe it is not because we lack motivation to start something or, because we have lost the drive to complete it.
Living Fully Alive
“True Bravery isn’t feeling no fear- it’s being afraid and moving forward anyway.” Hard times unlock the doors to places you could not get into any other way. It is in the waiting that God does his greatest work. I can boldly confess that because it is where I am at today. It is when we find joy in the waiting being confident that He will do it that, our Heavenly Father begins to create new things in our lives.
Perspective Dictates Direction
The vantage point from which you see things will determine the art you create.You cannot mentor (teach, lead, counsel) people whose perspective you are not willing to understand.
If God places you somewhere, He wants you to take responsibility for the people (and the place) He has given you.
A New Season, A Different Spirit
Seasons change but the Savior NEVER does. You can’t choose your season but, you can choose your spirit. We can be fruitful, faithful, and passionate Christians in every single season of our lives because Jesus comes with us throughout.
Faith is preparing before the blessing comes. Having a plan b is unnecessary when Jesus is on your side. Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith. In the kingdom, there is no plan b. God is your everything.
Getting it Right
trusting God completely, you’re no longer at the mercy of circumstances, other people, or your own emotions and limitations. It’s all about following God’s leading, standing on His Word, and then resting + trusting Him to work on your behalf.
