Lean into this new season with expectation! He is ready and willing. Are we?
Let’s begin to turn our hearts toward Him and away from the things that keep us distracted and empty.
Do not call to mind the former things, Or consider things of the past. Behold, I am going to do something new, Now it will spring up; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.Isaiah 43:18-19
Don’t expect Him to do things the same way or how I think He should.
Isaiah 55:8-9 says His ways and thoughts are higher than mine. I come with open hands and not my own agenda.
- The past can be painful.
- The present can be overwhelming.
- The future can be scary.
The best remedy for anxiety, worry or fear is GRATITUDE. It changes my heart and gives me perspective. God can handle it!
Don’t be ashamed. Tell Him how you are feeling. He already knows it all and wants to trade these things for peace.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:6-7
Make a list of things God has done and add to it consistently. As I look back, it will increase my faith and allow me to trust Him more.
I can’t help how I feel, but I can control how I respond. Choose greatfulness. Most things I worry about have no eternal value.
Don’t allow your mind to go down the rabbit hole of “what if’s” The answer to the “what if’s” is simply… “so what”!
God is bigger than ALL of it.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,Ephesians 3:20
Focus on what matters:
What He has done
What He is doing
What He will do…
in me and through me if I trust Him.
