Life is full of ups and downs and no matter how down it can get or how high, if you stay focused on your mission everything will always work itself out. How do you stay focused when everything seems to be going in the opposite direction? You stay on course and focused on the journey, where you end up is what’s in important not how you got there. Enjoy the journey! God will spit the seas for you when you trust Him to close it behind you on those things trying to keep you from your destiny. So next time you find yourself in a valley while on the quest to get to your destiny, remember the sea will split for you and on the other side you will be standing on a mountain with our Creator. That is when you are truly living in your destiny, walking beside our Creator!
How many times in your life have you been left feeling disappointed in a person or situation? It seems we place a high expectation on the things that affect our lives. So how do we live a life without expectation? Is it even possible to not have expectations? I know one thing for sure I would rather not get to the end of my life and wonder what would have happened had I spoke up or taken a different turn. Disappointment is a risk we all take when we put ourselves out there, weather telling that special someone how we feel or going after that job that is out of reach. I feel if you don’t risk it all the opportunity may pass you by and you can be left in a place of wondering, what if? So next time the job becomes open or the person you are crushing on becomes available take the risk put yourself out there, you may be left hanging alone but who knows you may have opened a whole new door you never thought would open for you. Don’t be scared of disappointment, it’s a part of life and will happen regardless, it’s better than wondering what could have been.
Have you ever felt rejected? How do you respond? For me I have always allowed the feeling of rejection to take control of my emotions. Sometimes we respond to others in a hurt manner or reflect the feeling on to the next person. How do you go about not letting the emotions control your actions? My new philosophy is if someone or something rejects me there will always be 10 more who accept me! So continue living for your purpose because rejection is a part of life and no matter how old you are it will always have an affect on us. How we respond to it is what defines us!
So many times we walk amongst other people, do you take time to love them? What would it look like if you did? For me it looks like loving each person where ever they are in their walk in life. I have found myself so many times around people that have been forgotten by love. Weather their family has given up on them or they never had one to begin with, to the people who were hurt by it. When those people cross my path I feel in those moments it is my duty to love them just how Jesus has loved me. Next time you find yourself around some one no matter how they act, love them anyway, even a simple smile can show them love, you never know what that love could do for them or you!
How do you face the child within? How old is your inner child and how do you get them to grow up? I think the first step is realizing that we all have that inner child within us and once you do that the beginning of the journey can begin. Does that mean we have to grow up twice? I have come to find out our inner child really seems to come out in the way we respond to people and situations. Next time you find yourself in the middle of conflict catch your response, does it remind you of a child….mine, mine, mine…. or do you respond in a mature manner? What does maturity mean? So many angles when it comes to our emotional beings within but if you can understand where you are or what maturity level you left off at when you were young you may be able to get your inner child to grow up to age of your outer being. Now please do not confuse your inner child with your childlike faith this is something God asks us to never lose we’re talking about the response we give when things don’t go our way. So next time you find your self getting a little pouty or your feelings get hurt, ask yourself is it because of the age my emotional inner child stayed at?
