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.
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.
This has been a desert season; yet, I’ve learned that God often speaks clearly in the valley. Every time I neglect the simple yet profound truths of who God is, I choose to forget that God is on the throne, He is in control and that there are far greater things ahead than those that I leave behind.
Too often, we miss out on what God wants to do in us and through us because we listen to the voice of the Enemy telling us, you’ll never ever ________________. Most of the barriers in front of us are rooted in two identity issues: the way in which others perceive us and the way in which we see ourselves. If you never know how to be loved, you will never know how to give love. We are commanded to prepare for the move of God before he makes the first move.
Have you discovered what you are passionate about? What is something that sets your heart on fire and, that you want to make a priority in this new year? Don’t wait until next week or next month to begin making an action plan; Start NOW! Our dreams are not independent from God, but instead exist because of God.
There will come a time that the people you were positioned with yesterday and the mentalities that they represent, will not be adequate for where God is taking you. When God speaks, and gives you the go, don’t have a plan b. You do not want to go where God has not gone before you.
How many people are limited by their own thinking, their own insecurities, or even the voices they have allowed others to speak over them? MANY.
Has it come to you that, maybe your answer may be limiting the movement of God in your life.
Attached to understanding one’s life purpose is knowing who our creator is.
Don’t let yesterday’s pain keep you from the bright future the Lord has designed for you. Your happiness does not rely on your circumstances changing, but on you changing how you see your circumstances.
Be Confident in knowing who God is and allow Him to move in your life!
Fear originates itself in self-centeredness.
Confidence and Boldness is found when we lose ourselves in Christ.
There are five gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and YOU. Most people will never read the first four and will only read the last one. Will your gospel be worth reading?
What if the thing that is holding you captive is just an indication of the calling that is inside of you and if it ever got loose or if it ever got free, it might change the world.
You see, hope rises when we come together. The enemy could have kept their feet from moving but He could not keep Paul’s and Silas’ voice from singing. Their praise broke their chains! Their perspective wasn’t connected to their pain; it was connected to their purpose. Hope is what causes us to believe that our setbacks are merely setups for greater things than we could ever imagine.
