“The moment you feel like you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment to absolutely and utterly walk away” –
A lot of truth to this. Sometimes, we have to walk away because this relationship is not a positive influence on us. Sometimes, we have to let go because the Lord has bigger plans that we just do not see in the moment. The situation that you find yourself in may not be about you at all. It could be a lesson for someone else that you are a part of in the big plan.
The last few weeks, I describe our life as burning the candle at both ends. So much to do and so many time frames. Feeling the pressure for sure. I was reminded yesterday to be still and know that he is God. A scripture was spoken in a Ladies Bible study that I went to and I have heard it so many times. The Lord himself goes BEFORE you and will be WITH you, he will NEVER leave you nor forsake you. Do NOT be afraid , do not be discouraged. Deut. 31:8.
No matter where we are in our walk , there are days that we need reminders. I re-read recently some notes from a sermon I watched from Andy Stanley over a year ago. A great truth worth meditating on again. In the big scheme of life, if we ask ourselves this one question, it can bring clarity to us. In view of my past, what is the wise thing to do? In view of my present goals, what is the wise thing to do? In view of my future hopes and dreams, what is the wise thing to do?
What is the wise thing to do? It can save a lot of tears. It can transform our relationships, our business and our finances. You owe it to yourself to ask yourself this question. Ask with every relationship, every decision, every invitation, every purchase, it brings tremendous clarity.
Most people do not plan to screw up their life, they just don’t plan not to. This is how you plan not to. You owe it to yourself. If you do not have your best interest at heart, who does? We know God does ~ He gives us wisdom if we truly seek it. We submit to God and he will give us spiritual gifts abundantly. He is a faithful God forever.
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Because most of what we deal with is real small stuff. May we live simply. Love generously. Speak truthfully. Work diligently. Then let go and let what’s meant to be, BE. Letting go is often a step forward. Sometimes you have to walk away from what you thought you wanted to find what you truly need and deserve. Sometimes you just have to forget what is gone and appreciate what remains, do the best you can, and look forward to what is coming next.
Remember… there will be days that we simply have to say, His ways are not our ways, and his thoughts are not our thoughts but simply understand that God’s way is better ~ Always and forever. He covers us with an everlasting love. There is nothing that can keep us from his love. LET FAITH ARISE ~~~
