➚God Guides Believers to an Answer through His Word, Meditate upon it. Psalms. 119:105 - Thy Word is a Lamp unto my Feet, and a Light unto my Path. *Our reading can take us to the very Passage that deals with our Situation or Reveals a Principle that applies. Sometimes God speaks a Crystal Clear Message to one person’s Heart that nobody else would glean from that particular passage. The key is to Believe that the Lord is going to Guide you, and live out that Faith. Mark. 11:24. ...
our words may dissolve
but the way we speak stays
toxic words spread like weeds
and while thoughtful and kind talk may be harder to grow
the beauty of it is what we need
you were born with a voice
with the power to grant life
and therefore with a responsibility
to choose your words wisely
and plant flowers wherever you can
When people try to tell me who I am I find it amusing because I am still getting to know myself andI believe it will be a life long learning.
We are often told who we are based on other people’s opinions . They decide who we should be or what we should do based on their beliefs, dreams, aspersions or fears, how we should or shouldn’t react based on their emotions, experiences or limitations , and what is right or wrong for us based on what is comfortable for them.
Sometimes we are complicit with this to not rock the boat, or to make others happy. Sometimes we are forced into it and feel like being ourselves following our dreams and speaking our truths will ostracise us and we will be alone or hurt others. And sometimes we are scared to show the world who we truly are for fear of rejection or because we think who we really are isn’t good enough or everyone. You are who you think you are, and if you think you aren’t good enough so will others. You deserve to be authentic and follow your passion and truth and even if someone doesn’t understand it , that doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough or should hide who you are, it often means they are too scared to also face their own authenticity.
The mindset that I found very helpful at some point in the past... . .
We are all so different and unique... Comparing ourselves with other people is meaningless. And the peace of mind from dropping those comparisons certainly contributes to a long and healthy life :). Comparing ourselves to the persons we used to be, on the other hand, helps moving to where we want to go. .
We all want good things to happen in our lives, things that we desire.
But is our life really ready to accommodate those things that we wish for ourselves? .
Are we ready to accept that gift? Can we contain what God wants to give us? Can we protect what God has planned for us?
