God is Enough

We live in a fast pace world where if you don’t add up or go 0 to 60 in 5 seconds your not gonna make it or your a failure. You have to forget about having a life because it interferes with being successful or achieving the best. There is such a high expectation on how to live it leaves us alone lost and depressed. Our self esteem is shot and we lose passion in our life because we don’t add up to the worlds expectations. We lose ourselves in living up to the worlds expectations by trying to get the best jobs, trying to improve our looks or even trying to get the best and latest stuff. Its not wrong to seek these but when we are trying to be somebody to the world we get lost and abandon or family and friends then we end up wanting more cause what we have is not good enough. If we let God in and trust him to fill our hearts we will then know his love is all we need to be full in our lives. No TV advertisement magazines or internet will influence us to be the best because we will be the best and achieve the best having God in our lives guiding us and strengthening us to love like never before. We will see our lives in a whole different light and we will love to the fullest. Loving ourselves, people and or friends and families, being happy and blessed for what we have and for who we are. Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid, nor dismayed; for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” God will definitely guide us in our life and pursuits to be better as long as we allow him to enter our hearts.

God thank you for what you have given me. I may not have a bunch of stuff, I may not get every thing I think I want, but I definitely have enough and I am enough. I have you and rejoice in your provisions! You are my provider and I have never gone without a necessity being fulfilled. Even in my weakness, your grace is sufficient. To believe this is a daily struggle. My flesh doesn’t believe it like my heart does. I ask that you would help me to always rejoice in all that you have provided for my family and I. I pray that I remain humble and thankful in Jesus name AMEN!

Rebuilding From a Loss

We all have been through losses in one form or another some big some small, whether its from divorce or death from a loved one or even loss of income and anything that comes from that loss. In such losses in our lives we become broken and tend to lose hope in life and even in ourselves. We become so depressed and check out mentally because we feel so worthless to the people around us. These losses takes a piece of our heart every time something happens. That love or a piece of us we had is gone and we don’t have the strength or know what to do so we lose ourselves in the negative aspects of these losses We turn to drugs alcohol, or things that don’t benefit our growth and bring us down. We search for something to fill that hole in our heart and still find nothing. This devastation can be so severe not to only us but to the loved ones around us. There is a solution to all of this though It is building a relationship with God. There is so much proof around us that he is the only one who can fill our hearts beyond full and we get so much more from him then anything can offer. “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit.”
Psalm 34:18 (NLT) He gave is only begotten son so that we can live without worries and stress in our life. All we have to do is have faith and give him all of our baggage to release ourselves from the prison of sin. ” He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world”. 1 John 2:2 (NLT)
Dear Lord,
Please help me in this time of loss and grief. I don’t understand why my life is filled with this pain and heartache. But I turn my eyes to you as I seek to find the strength to trust in your faithfulness. I will wait on you and not despair; I will quietly wait for your salvation. My heart is crushed, but I know that you will not abandon me forever. Please show me your compassion, Lord. Help me through the pain so that I will hope in you again. I believe this promise in your Word to send me fresh mercy each day. Though I can’t see past today, I trust your great love will never fail me.
Amen.
