Sometimes things occur in life we wish had never happened.. Sometimes things occur in life we have little to no control over.. Sometimes people walk out of your life to make room for new people to walk in.. I don’t know about you but my life is crazy most of the time.. Keeping up with the daily bump and grind can prove to be extremely taxing.. I’m not complaining I like my job, my son is amazing, I have been blessed some pretty awesome friends, and now I have this spectacular man in my life.. The day-to-day doesn’t seem so bad just a little busy..
I often feel like I don’t have enough time do accomplish everything I need or want to in a day.. I more often don’t feel like accomplishing every thing I want or need to do in a day.. I wonder if my lack of ambition is more a fear of the unknown.. I wonder why I let my past experiences dictate the way my present plays out?? I’m not trying to hold on to the past I am trying to let it go. I am trying to move forward. I am trying to grow. So why is that every time I take one step forward it seems as though my past pulls me five steps backwards?? Why is it so hard to shrug it off and just keep forging forward?? And why does it seem to affect only the things I care about most??
1 Corinthians 10:13
13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
2 Corinthians 4:16
16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.
Fear: False Evidence Appearing Real.
As I searched for scripture to use on this subject these were all I could find.. I battled with using them as upon my first read of each of them I didn’t believe that covered quite the topic I was looking for.. Then upon my second read I discovered that these are exactly what I needed to hear in my foul mood.. A reminder that fear will eat you if you let it. The past does not indeed repeat itself.. I am not who I once was.. And I do deserve the blessings being handed to me..
Somebody else out there needs these words as much I do right now.. So here they are.
What fear is holding you back or down?? How can you escape it??
We all suffer with fears. We all have moments we lack in faith.. When trials arise and memories take over teach us to look back at the lesson not to fear repetitiveness. For the past only repeats when we allow it. Lord teach us to remember that the threat of repeat is merely a test of strength. React as educated instead of reacting the same way. Lord thank you for the ability to walk away and pray instead of reacting without thought. Thank you for the many blessings you show each day..
