Many don’t know this but at some point and time in your life, you’re going to face struggles and challenges. You can’t escape it and there’s no way around it. You can pray and be nice to others and give back and do all kinds of nice and wonderful things for yourself and everybody else until you’re blue in the face and you will still have rainy days, like everybody else. Thankfully, we’ve been given strength and patience to endure it and it’s all about the attitude you have towards
There was a time when I would let myself get worried over things that were either out of my control or already taken care of. It wasn’t until I began to let myself trust that God was going to take care of my needs, that a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders. I knew that if there was something I needed like food or clothing or a roof over my head, God was going to make sure I had it and I knew He would do this because He
I can almost guarantee that if you get something you really want quickly and in abundance, you can lose it just as quickly and it will be hard on you. But when we receive joy in a ‘slow drip’ which shows through our blessings, it opens the door to more blessings over time. It’s only when we begin to appreciate the small and simple things in life that we begin to see how much love and abundance we have around us. Open your eyes and learn to accept the daily joys
Ask anybody who has achieved their goals in life and they’ll tell you that it wasn’t an easy road. I think too many of us face struggles and challenges on the way to achieving our dreams and we let it deter us and force us to walk away from the lives we desire and that’s because we walk into our dream with an expectation that everything will fall into our lap tomorrow, when the reality is that you have to work your butt off before you even begin to see
It’s not too late to start the world again. I believe it’s a very simple formula of practicing love, forgiveness, kindness, courtesy and giving to others. If we look outside of ourselves and develop true and genuine concern for our neighbors, not only will we find a way to help improve one life, but we also find a way to improve our own lives. You know that feeling you get when you help somebody or give back in some way? That’s the feeling you want to aim to have on
I have recently begun to learn what it is to cast all my fears, worries and doubts on the Lord. Not only can he bare my burdens better than me, but He is more than willing and able to do it. In fact, it is His pleasure and a great joy to Him when you finally do turn to Him for support and guidance. Turn to Him now for whatever you need. He is waiting for you.
I always preach that the overnight success is few and far between and this quote aligns with that so perfectly. Don’t try to escape the work you know you must do, in order to achieve the things you want to achieve. Put in that time and effort without fear or worry about anything else. Let everything take care of itself and you just focus.
Once you decide that you want to touch people’s lives and change the world with your positive influence, you can either be the creator of that influence or the promoter of others influence. Just as long as it all aligns with your mission to make a difference.
Never try to go over or around any of the trials you may face in life. If you want out, just go through. There is no other way. It’s also the best way to learn the lessons you need to learn and grow into the person you know you have living inside of you.
There are so many times when I try to have control over certain situations in my life and it’s not until I let it go and surrender it to God that the answers come to me and I achieve optimal clarity and understand on the direction that I should go. To make things even better, I never have to worry about how I will handle difficult situations because I know the Lord is there to stand up and fight for me. With God, you always have someone in your corner
