Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
I’ve always struggled with staying motivated and trusting God through all circumstances. But as of recently I’ve noticed that I’m really getting to a place of focusing on doing ME. I’m no longer distracted by what’s going on around me but am focused on continuing to grow in God and building my empire. It’s a wonderful feeling to finally be able to get to this place and I know that God will really be able to mature me and use me all the more because my priority is truly Him. So what has taken control of your heart and mind? What are you focused on? Are you focused on the cares of this world and the opinions of others or are you tuned in to the one that really matters the most? If your focus isn’t where it’s supposed to be you may want to re-prioritize and get your focus back in order. There’s nothing better than being in a place of gratitude because you’ve let go of all the cares that were holding you down. So release what has you bound and thank God in advance for where He’s taking you. You may be in the midst of difficult times but God is always near and He hasn’t forgotten about you. Just make sure you haven’t forgotten about Him. As always….
Peace and love.
***P.S. Happy September all! We’re 9 months into this year and although you may not see what God has promised you, this year still isn’t over yet. I’m excited to see what God is going to do and cannot wait to share it with you all! Be on the look-out because it is coming soon, God is already turning things around!! :)***
We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. – Hebrews 12:2 (NLT)
