Look In Not Out

No need to fear, you are not left alone! Regardless of your mistakes, bad decisions or what you have done or have not done, God is faithful, He is not like man. God ALREADY knew from the beginning of time EVERY move we would make, EVERY thought we would think, and EVERY trial, test, and temptation we would face in life! NOTHING catches God by surprise! He is the ONLY person ALREADY in our tomorrow, hallelujah!!!

Search your heart and your mind to discover what makes you happy, what makes you laugh, what makes you sad, what makes you cry. Check yourself out. Have you withheld your love or kindness from people based on your experiences? Do you find it difficult to let go of hurt, rejection, or disappointments?

Be honest with yourself regarding the state of your health. The state of your health is normally connected to the condition of your heart. If your heart is sick, your body will be sick. Sickness will not be contained to one part of our body. Proverbs 17:22 (NIV) declares that “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones”. When we begin to dry up in our love, joy, peace, kindness, and patience, it won’t be long before we begin to dry up in our mind and body.

Contrary to our natural inclination to think that we are justified when “we go there” with people who commit an offense against us; we do not win when repay evil with another evil move. According to Romans 12:19 (NIV) we should not take revenge for ourselves, revenge belongs to God, He will repay for every wrong done us.

Let’s not get caught up and miss what time it is in our lives! It’s our time to stay focused on the road map laid out for our lives. Don’t take for granted the number of people depending on you to win in life! Our lives are the only teaching tools we have. We are the models in this moment. Be intentional about being the best model home you can be. Lives are at stake, can God depend on you to rescue someone’s soul from the pits of hell?

Sure situations and circumstances will come up on the road called life, and they can be quite challenging, disappointing, and difficult at times, BUT I am a witness that if it is in our lives, we are more than capable of overcoming it, regardless of the challenge or how difficult it is or who did what. If it does not kill us, we were kept alive for a reason. We were created to WIN, we are built to outlast EVERY storm, test, trial and tribulation that comes in our lives, especially when we set ourselves to live according to the Word of God.

Keeping leaning in, don’t fall back! Thank you for staying connected!
