This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
We have all suffered this at one point in our lives. Some more than others, and some until this very day. They say “Man never plans to fail, but fail to plan.” Is also a trustworthy statement to be made. We go about our lives o auto-pilot wishing, hoping and waiting for the best to work out in the end and at times it does, but only for a short while and then here we go again. Repeating the same boomerang effect of life repeating itself, but why? Because life doesn’t bargain on our terms. It gives us what we believe within our eternal being of who we are. I didn’t learn this overnight, on the contrary, it took me many years of continued failure to really understand this concept. That if I’m to see REAL change in my life and those around me, I must begin with that inner man that has been programmed for so many years, hardwired to a self-destructing mindset. That’s an awful lot to accept and take in at first though, but very true. We look for the outside world to blame when things don’t turn out the way we planned, or end up on a bad note. Not realizing I was the one attracting most of my own misfortunes and deeds to myself. Locking them in on me like a homing device. I began to pay attention to thoughts, behavior, attitudes, irritations, and question myself about why do I go through so many contradicting things, not of my interest and desires, they’re just the opposite Looking further into this matter, I looked at my surroundings, a toxic relationship….always complaining and never satisfied with me or nothing else for that matter. Arguing continuously in my mind with myself about feeling in chains and no freedom, no air to breath and the WORD of God that was placed into my heart completely felt robbed of, but I had no one to blame but that man in the mirror It wasn’t that person’s fault, it was mine. The manner in which I accepted those words and worst than that, believed them to a certain point. I decided to put things into perspective for myself. I had to remember who I AM was. If that makes sense. I begin by filtering myself, even though the negativity continued even more. I was convinced that this relationship and I personally would grow from all of this or it would part, but for me…I was willing to sacrifice it all. You see, you have the opportunity to change ANYTHING about you that you don’t agree with. However, it must first begin eternally. There’s a quote by Christ that states: “Let it be done unto you as you believe.” As you believe. Faith in one’s self is vital to your survival and wellbeing. Without it, you will suffer shipwreck faith. It takes laser-like focus, a willingness to risk it all, persistence, and a continual guarding of your heart and mind…this is the work. As I did, and continue to do on a daily bases is knowing what you want clearly, seeing it in the now, believing you are worthy of it, and prayerfully and persistently moving toward it in spite what the outer world tries to dictate with discouragement and words of impossibilities…stay focus and grateful for the new you and where you are at this moment because the doors of heaven are about to burst wide open for you. I had felt as though I had lost all hope for my future, but I as I began to wake early, reaffirm who I AM, and what Spirit I have dwelling within me, there is no I can’t, it’s too hard, I’m limited, I’m not good enough, or I can’t do it or make it. My God, we have murdered ourselves long before the fight ever begun. The WORD of God states clearly…” We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus our Lord.” That “No height, nor depth, nor angel or demon, trouble or sword SHALL separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” One I began to grab hold of these words, believing in my heart…not in my mind, that this that I desire IS the real me, that which dwell within my spiritual man…is who I AM…things began to move and change. You see, we don’t have to suffer shipwrecked faith. That’s a choice. This is why the apostle Paul stated, “Rejoice in all things” Whether sufferings, persecutions, current situations, whatever it may be…rejoice! And watch the hand of God turn your life completely around…it is who you are…your Devine right as a child of God. “Ask, and you SHALL receive. Knock, and the door SHALL be opened, Seek, and you SHALL find.” May the peace and love of God be with you, protect you and keep you and those of your family from all unseen, hurt harm, and danger. God Bless.
