I WANT TO WIN THE BATTLE
I MUST EXPECT GREATER THINGS
I MUST BELIEVE IN GOD BIG
I MUST KNOW THAT MY LIFE MAKES A DIFFERENCE
I WILL POSITITION MYSELF FOR GOD'S PLAN
Jude 20-21 New Living Translation
20 But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, 21 and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.
POSITION YOURSELF ~
The picture quote above is by Priscilla Shirer. A strong woman of God and gifted writer/teacher. I would highly recommend you find her on youtube and listen to come great messages. As I open the Bible, I read Jude 20-21 above. There is power of the Holy Spirit and keeping yourself safe in God's love. Even in the Bible days, Jesus came and his disciples had a mission to accomplish.
Matthew 28:18-20 New Living Translation
18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
You and I, have something to accomplish in this world. As we walk this earth and one day meet The Lord face to face, we will give account of what we have done. We are to go and teach others of the ways of God and live by his example. People watch our lives a lot more than we might know. We are to position ourself to cross that finish line with hope, peace, love and much more. Think of the stories that Jesus had as he walked this earth. People came from far way for him to heal them and to see miracles. Those same miracles happens now and live continues on as we position ourselves in God.
Stop making excuses of what God hasn't done yet and start giving thanks for all God has done! So many choices and decisions in this life. I am thankful for men and women of God who have gone on before us and left their examples before us. Stories that have been written and unwritten still, but adds value to each circumstance we have gone through in life. Learning and growing daily to become better people and not bitter.
Life is certainly about change as well. We never know what will come our way in one day. Living life to the fullest is important too. Adding fun into your life and not just a busy lifestyle. There is joy in the journey of life and there are memories that will last a life time. Go head, think of one great memory and the joy it brought your heart. Now think of one person who you love totally and how they impacted your life to better. Bringing positive people into our lives and good thoughts are a must. I know this because I battle thoughts and I battle the past at times.
I suddenly remember that God has brought me out of the past and into now for purpose. My life has changed much over the last few years. People have moved out of my life and some have moved into my life. I've learned a new normal and it's often not easy but important to press forward. The bible says:
Philippians 3:14 King James Version
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Today and everyday of life, choose to position yourself for greatness. Things happen to each of us but our actions will speak louder than words at times. I thank God you took the time to read this, to encourage yourself and to know that you are important. I value your time and my prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
