Hope For Today! July 20

Dream Big! Our God is Bigger!

Moments of Hope!

At a very young age I realized I needed to fix my thought life, so I sought God and counseling. There are a lot of people that need to address their mental health issues but haven’t done so because of the stigma concerning it and I was one of them.  There is nothing wrong with seeking Godly counsel. In fact, it’s one of the directions in your life manual, the Word of God, that has been repeated several times. That means God is serious about making sure you understand the importance of seeking Godly counsel.

There is safety in having the proper counseling. The Word of God says it can keep you from falling. Your thoughts lead to your actions, and your actions lead you to good or bad decisions, success, or suffering. It is imperative that your thought life be in harmony with the Word of God. You were chosen for so much more, to do a good work and the blueprint is already complete. You have a manual and handbook that is accessible to you twenty-four hours a day. Once you take on the mind of Christ, there is nothing that will be impossible for you

The Bible says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬

You have the strength to win the battle between the ungodly fantasies and the sacred thoughts that fight for your mind’s attention. The war for your thoughts is a reality. Winning in this area is crucial to living a victorious life. You must take your thoughts captive and make them obedient to God.  However, the roots of our thoughts come from the desires of our hearts. So, to fix our thought life and renew our minds, we must address our heart life. The condition of our hearts—our feelings and instincts—directly impacts the nature of our thoughts. If we are dominated by a sinful nature, our thoughts will destroy us. Conversely, if we are controlled by the Holy Spirit, our thoughts will bring peace, joy, and life to us as well as to those who are connected to us. 

Our thoughts and words are powerful, and the things we meditate on and the words we speak can affect our lives in a significant and sometimes detrimental way. They have the ability to bring forth feelings of anxiety, pain, and stress or they are quite capable of helping us feel good, comfortable, and peaceful.  The Bible say that we serve a God who speaks of nonexistent things as if they already exist (see Romans 4:17).  Anyone who will dare to dream and put his or her faith into action and believe God to bring forth what seems impossible or unattainable; the one who will go the extra mile and do the things that other people think are impossible will realize the fruit of his or her faith. 

The Power of Change. Think about if you don’t change anything in your life and it’s 1, 5, or 10 years from now. What will your life look like?  I am determined to make a difference in my life and the life of others.  Isn’t that so much more exciting then just existing day after day.  Success is something you attract by the person you become.  If you want more, you must become more. God will change your circumstances, but He’ll change you first.  

Get back to doing your daily routine or start one. Spend time with God daily, read you Bible, listen to faith based messages to renew your mind and God will birth new dreams inside of you.  Begin writing your dreams and goals down and reviewing them daily, start imagining yourself making a difference. Begin an exercise program, read inspirational books and laugh more. I believe the secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine. Growth is not automatic it must be intentional and planned.  What dreams could you accomplish with the right discipline and daily routine?  Make today the best day of your life and the next and the next…. 

Life is a gift, live in the present and make every minute count. 

Enjoy the Journey!

Live with Passion!
