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…
Every New Year begins with a list filled with resolutions. Resolutions are great but, they don’t mean anything if you don’t create tangible steps to accomplish them. My desire for 2018 was to begin differently than any other year. I decided that the pain of where I was was far greater than the pain of change. And we are five days in and, I can confidently say that I have.
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.
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.
Faith is the process of adapting your behavior, your decisions, and ultimately, your whole lifestyle so that it is in sync with what God has asked you to do—without needing to see the evidence that it will all work out in the end.So, when you put Flourishing by Faith together, you are living a life that says:
I pray and then believe.
I expect and then see.
I ask and then I receive.
I am not easily discouraged or paralyzed by fear or insecurity.
Stop resisting the process by which God is trying to reveal himself through. The future will require more of you. Most of us go kicking and screaming instead of moving into it with an assuredness that not only is God on the other side, but new facets of Him that we haven’t discovered yet and are also there.
God is better than you think He is.He is more faithful than you know Him to be. Up to this point, you have already seen what you can do, it is time to see what God can do. Be confident knowing that God has already placed the destination in your GPS and has an exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think plan.
