This morning I woke up with a grateful heart for life and the lessons I have learned along the way.
It takes strength, and most of all courage to find and trust in hope in a place that you once found yourself completely hopeless.
Yet I have realized that’s one of the blessings in life we misinterpret.
It’s a blessing to go through tough experiences and come out on the other side.
If we can make a conscious decision to LEARN from these experiences rather than allow them to change us inwardly, what more battles could we fight and come out victorious?
Rather than looking at a problem and assessing how it’s affecting you, pay attention to how you are affecting it. What are you bringing to that conflict? How are you responding? Is it healthy? Would the situation change in any form if YOU changed?
I have noticed that the more I think about my faith and why I follow it so faithfully. It has nothing to do with the “religion” but more so the aspect that Jesus calls me to push the limits of myself. He calls me to a higher thought process. To think before I act, to control my mind, and not let it control me.
In simpler terms, rather than follow the line, what would it take from me to create my own?
I encourage everyone this week to reevaluate the conflict in their lives. How can you be the change you are looking for?
