Don’t Drown in Sorrow 🙃

hands-2805608_1920

Don’t allow the guilt of your past or present to stop you from becoming all that the LORD wants you to be. Don’t allow regret, shame and sorrow to drain or hinder you from completing the will of God. He shall uplift, restore and vindicate you. No matter how great your sin or iniquity is, it is not greater than him. Repent and move forward. Dust off your shoulders and feet and keep it moving! Start over. As long as your breathing you still have a chance to get it right. You still have another opportunity to start fresh. There is no need to dwell on choices and decisions that you cannot change. No matter how unworthy we are, we should never give up on trying to get it right. We should not follow our flesh of how we “feel”. We should follow the spirit. The flesh will constantly remind us on how guilty and unworthy we are, but the holy spirit will say “I will use all of your shortcomings for my glory”.  There is purpose in your pain. The enemy wants his voice to be louder than your creator. Remember he is the father of lies. That’s why its important to focus on God’s voice, despite what we may think of ourselves.

Be healed, whole and happy. Allow him to renew your mind and spirit. Allow him to reinvent and spark up your passion again. Allow him to pull and drive you to the road of purpose. The best is still yet to come. In order to help others, you must help your self. No one deserves his goodness, mercy and grace. No one can fully earn it. Take full advantage of his free gift of eternal life and walk towards the road of repentance; no matter how many times you messed up! Keep trying and going for you will overcome. Never stop trying my friend. In order to be effective to others, you must forgive yourself.  Forgive and love yourself despite your shortcomings and impurities. Allow him to still use you as a vessel for his purpose. You are not alone. Watch him change you. No process is overnight, but he is there with you step by step.

Take time  to heal from the pain, wounds and damage that you may have inflicted upon yourself, for you are still precious in his sight. 🌹🌷🌼🌻 Again do not drown in your sorrows or disappointments. The LORD is the safety float that can protect you from drowning. Allow him to build you back up and replenish your strength. #keepgoing #nopityparties #itsnevertoolate.

It is written in Micah 7:19 “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea”.

Happiness is A Choice

water-lily-1510707_1920

Please don’t wait until you have what you want in life to be happy. Make a choice and a decision that you are still going to be happy regardless of what you are waiting for. Make a decision that you are still going to enjoy the journey along the way. Being unhappy robs of us of time. There is beauty in almost every situation. Whether you are starting over, feeling like you are stuck, or being almost there in achieving your goals; you can still be happy! The LORD does not want your happiness or faith to be based on conditions. Yes there will be things that we encounter in our lives that will try to destroy us; as well as our joy. We must fight to not allow no one to steal our joy. Weeping may endure for the night, but joy shall come in the morning.

Remember that your situation is temporary. Be bold and gracious my friend, for the best is yet to come. Don’t be ruled by temporary emotions and circumstances. Happiness is a choice. Our happiness cannot come from other people, places, money, material things and our professions. If our happiness is based on those things, then we are building a fragile foundation that will eventually crumble apart. Be strong and faithful always. Don’t live any less because you currently don’t have what you are praying for yet.

It is written in Psalms 37:4 – “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”.
