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.
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.
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.
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.
Your creativity reflects the DNA of your creator and as an artisan, your life tells a great story. The masterpiece of our lives is composed of what God is doing in us, not just what we are doing for others. It shifts our eyes to see what God is accomplishing through us, not just what we are accomplishing on our own. Influencers lead from the inside out so that their identity shapes their leadership.
Patience is not a feeling; it is a daily decision. When you have the ability to endure resistance and/or you stay in the fire, you are exhibiting patience. This is definitely easier said than done and in order to confidently walk in patience, you need to prepare.
