One of the things I have been doing this month is planning around the visions I have for my life. This includes Budgeting, creating charts, and research. I pray my friends don’t think I’m crazy when they tag along on tours to event spaces.
I may not have concrete answers to life, but I know if it is placed in my heart and mind – I can do it.
It has become a hobby of mine to dream and plan for everything I want. Use this as a message to put work to faith. It may seem weird at first, but it will give you the motivation to keep striving at life.
The only rule I follow when dreaming is not to have a specific time frame. There are certain things that you cannot rush God to do. He has a season for everything to unfold. Like they say it will be worth the wait.
Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. 2 For by it our ancestors won God’s approval.
3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.
Don’t you for a second think you are not special. You are.
Make peace with your thoughts.
God created you with perfect design
Even when you think you’re not good or smart enough – he sees value in you
Now get up and conquer the world.
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
An art teacher in my high school gave the class a quote one day – it stuck with me to this day. “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?”
To elaborate I will ask: Would you take more risk? Would you leave an unhealthy circumstance with no answers to what will happen next? Would you be generous with your smile and love? I mean seriously, what would you do?
The fruit of faithfulness is so rebellious of what this world tells you about yourself.
“You know what? I don’t care what you think I deserve or who you think I am. I know I am a child of God and that means all my needs will be met and then some.”
When you walk with the presence of God in your life, you can conquer anything.
35 “‘Then I will raise up a faithful priest for myself. He will do whatever is in my heart and mind. I will establish a lasting dynasty for him, and he will walk before my anointed one for all time.
1 Samuel 2:35
God thank you for providing a life that I never thought I would have. Thank you for allowing things to come together in your time. Even if I don’t fully understand the plans you have over my life, I accept whatever path you want me to take
Sometimes I feel like giving up and throwing in the towel on my dreams. I know that you will always provide all of my needs, even if my wants are pushed the side. I pray that you continue to show me your grace and mercy during difficult times. If I ever feel my hope slipping, I pray that you pick me back up. Let me pursue excellence while also seeking the righteousness of heaven.
I want to serve you with a whole heart. Please see my soul and know that I am at least trying not to conform to this world. I want to see how much you value me through your eyes. I want to value others how you value them. Do not let my heart harden by the uncertainty of life.
Your kingdom comes, your will be done on earth how it is done in heaven.
In Jesus Name,
God is our refuge and strength,
a helper who is always found
in times of trouble.
Therefore we will not be afraid,
though the earth trembles
and the mountains topple
into the depths of the seas,
though its water roars and foams
and the mountains quake with its turmoil.Selah
You’re a little uncomfortable right now. You know the next chapter in your life is about to unfold. You feel like you want to cringe. You have anxiety about a life you’ve never experienced before.
You have come so far in your life. You accomplished so much. You stayed true to yourself and took risk even when everyone thought it was stupid or crazy.
Listen, and do as I say:
Keep jumping in the deep end. Don’t give up. Learn how to swim in unknown depths.
Trust in yourself — know you will be okay.
You have character and the power of God by your side. So don’t sweat something you haven’t even had yet. Remember you waited your whole life for this – so don’t back out.
What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us?
God thank you for giving me a good night sleep. Thank you allowing me to be productive last week. And thank you for giving me the resources to be my best self.
God please forgive me for not be grateful for the things I have in my life. Sometimes I take my blessings for granted. Know that even though I don’t see beauty all of the time – I still think you are amazing.
Please give me the perfect balance of caring for myself and other people. Let me be aware that the way I treat myself is reflection of God in my life. Give me the strength and wisdom to care of myself first. Please let me see myself the way you see me.
Thank you for giving your son to die on the cross for all of my sins. Even when I fall short of the glory – you always protect me. I love you so much.
Your Kingdom come – your will be done – on earth – how it is done in heaven.
In Jesus Name
So God created man
in his own image;
he created him in the image of God;
he created them male and female.
Opening up to people can be scary. Insecurities and anxiety creeps up and backing out seems like that easiest solution.
For the past 5 months – I’ve been working on this.
First I started off with having positive females in my life. Getting cake with the girls every Thursday was rewarding. Chit chatting and being understood gave me the courage to try at life. The simple things made me feel so comfortable as a woman.
I’m sharing my story to suggest : let people in. Not everyone is going to be kind and cool. You can at least try. If someone shows they are cruel – walk away. But I know for a fact someone will accept and love the awesome person you are.
I don’t have all the answers in life but I do know when you are being authentic and jolly – you will find your place in this world.
18 There is no fear in love; instead, perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment.So the one who fears is not complete in love. 19 We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4: 18-19
