Instead of worrying or getting anxious do you go to prayer?
Did you know God offers us constant peace, fulfillment and an everlasting joy when we seek Him?
We must choose to receive it daily. Which means we must pray daily. Make prayer a priorty.
Prayer is our lifeline.
Without it we experience chaos, confusion, and lack of purpose.
We find fulfillment only in Him, the ONE who created us and sustains the universe.
We go to prayer not for Him to get to know us but for us to know more of Him. To know His character and His will for our life.
If you’re searching for peace, joy, love or purpose in this season I encourage you to seek Him. Pray, meditate on His word and promises. He invites us daily into a personal relationship with Him. That is where we find the fulfillment we’ve been longing for.
For those of us in recovery: We keep our recovery when we spend time daily in prayer and meditation. Learning His will for our life.Then we freely share it with others.
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. Jeremiah 29:12
The Lord is gracious & compassionate slow to anger and rich in love. Psalm 145:8 NIV
Sometimes people do to us what we do to the Lord. We judge the Lord and call Him things He is not. We believe the lies. Some of us may think God is an angry God. They believe He has punished them. They believe He never blesses them or has anything good for them.
If they had an earthly father that was absent or abusive they believe the same about our Heavenly Father. Our God is loving, He is slow to anger. he is rich in love. He loves you. Adores you. Wants the very best for you.
This is why it’s important to know the truth about our Heavenly Father.
Some people label us and define us by our past and we must know the truth about ourselves and speak against those lies too. For many years I believed I wasn’t worthy of grace and that I wasn’t compassionate because of the mistakes I had made.
But the truth is my past doesn’t define me. It’s my current actions that will define my future. So I must change the narrative and speak truth into my life. If my God say’s He is gracious and compassionate then so am I!
So I will speak with the authority and love that I’ve been given towards myself and others. I want to reflect His character and walk out His promises.
So will you repeat this #affirmations
Repeat it until you believe the truth about yourself and about your Heavenly Father above?!?

I don’t know about you but this year has been different. It’s been hard, weird, and lonely. A lot of us find ourselves lonely. We can’t gather like we use to. We can’t hug, and kiss like we would like to. Mom groups are cancelled, bible studies are cancelled, recovery groups are cancelled for some. Self-care looks different and we have to get creative with date nights. We can’t visit our elderly parents and they can’t come over to spend time with their grandchildren. For some of us we need help at home and we feel all the responsibility is on us (so we feel overwhelmed) because we are afraid to have someone come help and bring the virus in our home.
Friend, it’s a weird season for sure. It can be very confusing, frustrating and lonely.
I found this quote which encourages me to ask God,
“God in this season of loneliness what is it that you want me to focus on?”
“What is my purpose in this season of life?”
“What are you doing in me in this season?”
When you know your mission, then you know your season and the purpose God has for you.
Shift your mind and see this season as a beautiful place. Lonely but never Alone. God is always with us. This is a place and Oppurtunity to figure things out. In the stillness, the quiet place. Rely on God’s grace to carry you through. He is faithful.
Trust that He is the answer to all your worries and concerns. He has a purpose for your life.
He is in the quiet places. Just ask Him. He will meet you right where your at.
We are going to get through this season together. Your not alone. I’m here for you. Your doing a great job. Have daily grace for yourself.
