On my spiritual journey just like others I have experienced challenging times. This Faith Life is not always easy but it’s always worth it. I’m going to share a personal journal entry from my time with God, I hope to encourage my readers as I open My Heart, thoughts and prayers.
Often times we can get so caught up in life that we begin to see ourselves through our own eyes. Many choices we have made that has increased our lives we needed God’s help. God is always there to lead and guide us and do things within and through us. When life becomes overwhelming we can lose sight of the Big Picture and begin to doubt ourselves, our gifts and talents because we are looking at what we can do through our own strength. Through the difficult time I recently experienced I had to remind myself of the way that God sees me, His purpose for my life and all that He has called me to do. God reminded me that it is not through my own strength that I have gotten this far on my journey but everything is through Him. He is my Source, the Truth, the Life and the only way I will fulfill my purpose is to Trust Him.
Journal Entry: February 14th 2018
As I search my heart today and everyday, I constantly make a choice to trust in God. Everything is not perfect but it is moving forward. I am choosing to look forward and enjoy each day as best as I can and to let past things pass away. I am also choosing to have an open heart, and no matter what I am choosing to Forgive, Let Go and Walk in Love.
Prayer: I thank you Lord for giving me the strength to move forward on this spiritual, emotional and mental Journey you have set me upon. In every trial there is a lesson, with every difficulty I am faced with choices and I always choose the choice that line up with your word. At times I get annoyed, emotionally disturbed and frustrated with situations and people. But I always come back to my foundation in you! I remember the Bigger Picture and the bright future you have planned for me! I know you know best and provide me with everything I need and want. I thank you for helping me, understanding me and giving me peace so that you can continue your work in me until the day it is finished. This journey so far has been beautiful, exciting and sometimes difficult. But I know it is definitely worth it and I’m glad you chose me! As long as you keep choosing me and pursuing me (which I know He always will) I will always keep choosing you! Thank you for filling in the gaps because of you I am whole! Amen!
Scripture:” Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4: 6-7
I hope you will be encouraged today! Remember it is not by your own strength that you will live out your purpose is it by God’s power within you!
Happy Monday! ❤
