Are you Feeling stagnant, worried, stressed out or wondering were your life is going?
I have a few words of encouragement for you!
Who remembers the story of David in the Bible? (1Samuel 16:13)
When David was anointed to be king, he was a boy who was dismissed & disregarded by his family (his brothers). He served in obscurity, but guess what? God used him in Israel’s history more than he used anyone who disregarded him!
Moral of the story is: no matter were you are today, God is maturing you to do something great.
The story of David is amazing because it reminds me of days i constantly fight worry and anxiety . How can someone motivated be so anxious about what they have going on in their life and how do i deal with these feelings?
How do i deal with these feelings:
1. Devotions, devotions, devotions:I get two devotions every year. One that i keep in my office & the other i keep at home. That way i have one that i can use, in the places i spend the most time. I’m a firm believer in enjoying quiet time with yourself. UNPLUG if you need to.
2. Journal: I write down my thoughts, as crazy as this may sound i find it relaxing.
3. Action plan: this is based off my current thoughts & ideas i put down in my journal. I figure out a plan and decide on the best way to work on my actions points.
4. Pray: Prayers of thanksgiving are my go to prayers! I use these to calm myself down & get my head Back in the game. However, this doesn’t replace the work that needs to be done! I’ve heard nay sayers say Christians are lazy, because Christians reactions to everything is PRAYER! Is this a good thing or bad thing? I bring this up to say that prayer without action is just like faith without works. Pray & work twice as hard! Like many say “God helps those who help themselves.”
Have confidence in Gods plan for you, he is serving behind the scenes & has created a path, only for you! No need to compare yourself to anyone else. Comparison derails your blessings & What’s for you, will always be for you.
Delay is not Denial (Psalm 40:1).
