For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future
True, we all struggle. Most of us do our best to bare our burdens because we know it's part of life... but how many times do we consider that life in the flesh is temporal and in that temporal, earth bound, limited aspect of our lives, lies the frenetic struggle which spins us and eats away at us. This leaves us desperate and defeated...HOP ELESS! Not to mention, questioning everything.
However, if we consider the part of our being that is spiritual, the only true and eternal part of ourselves, then the negative is limited and does not have any real lasting power over us.
We can choose the thoughts we think, we can add things to our lives that are good and nuturing. Surround ourselves with people that we support, support us and our purpose filled journey is what brings us true joy and leads us to the knowing of His will.
So, still yourself and see it is possible to quiet the negative, self defeating chatter. When you find yourself questioning any feelings of failure, fear and deception that's welling up inside you...ask yourself this question...who's the negative voice going on and on inside your head?
This is not the voice of your creator. It's not the one who loves you, and gave you a life with purpose and intent, and brought you into this world to love others and serve Him.
Be still, see Him in your mind's eye and walk (run) toward Him. Listen to Him, feel His peace. Know He will lead you. Trust in Him, not in the words of others whose allegiance is tied to things of this world...that energy will seek to pillage and destroy you and all you love...He loves you very much and will guide you through anything ...enabling you so you may complete the purposeful journey He planned for you.
May you alway find the peace of God.
