Brethren your partnership with god leads to success, it is important not to think we have failed because some areas in our lives are not perfect (Romans 3:10). Life is full of challenges, but through those challenges, we grow, even though we may stumble.
Your destiny is not determined by the hurdles, the bumps in the road or the wild ride you may be on – you determine your future through your determination not to let those challenges stop you in your tracks. RISE UP, DUST YOURSELF OFF AND MOVE FORWARD! It doesn’t matter if you try and try and try again and fail. It does matter if you try and fail, and fail to try again (Galatians 6:9).
Life is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice, and every choice you make makes you; therefore it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved If you don’t sacrifice for what you want what you want becomes the sacrifice. One reason people resist change is that they focus on what they have to give up, i.e. The drinking, the parting, instead of what they have to gain-eternal life.
Brethren, your words mean nothing when your actions are the complete opposite (James 2:17). It’s either black or white, i.e. There are only two options: Make progress in your spiritual life or make excuses. Life Is all about making choices. Always do your best to make the right ones, and always do your best to learn from the wrong ones (Deuteronomy 30:15). Afterall the distance between your dreams and your reality is the action you will take now, so take every chance you get in life because some things only happen once and one decision is all you need for a totally different life.
Remember, change is painful. But nothing is as painful as being stuck somewhere you don’t belong with people you don’t like doing the very evil things they do (1cor.15:33).
Word of caution! Never base your life decisions on advice from these people who don’t have to deal with the results thereof. Most of them are unsuccessful people who are used to making decisions based on their current situations and not based on where they want to be. Brethren pray for more grace because you can’t change how people will treat you or what they will say about you. But God can give you sufficient grace to change how you react to it.
Remember, most of your stress comes from the way you respond, not the way life is. Adjust your attitude. Change how you see things. Look for the good in all situations. Take the lesson and find new opportunities to grow. Let all the extra stress, worrying and overthinking go.
Remain bless and strengthened in Christ and stay in a partnership with god.
