Last month, I read an inspiring book full of suggestions to make life better. The book is easy to read in small chunks or in one setting. I read bits and pieces over several days. One quote that I especially appreciated was:
"I am not a product of my past.
I am not a product of my environment.
I am not who other people say that I am.
I am who God says I am.
I am who God is calling me to be."
It is something we all need to learn so we can go on to become what God dreams for us to be and bring HIM glory. If we allow ourselves to get stuck in the pain of the past or a current troubling situation we are telling God that HE doesn't have the power to bring about healing.
So how do we let go and give it to God? Most of us are pretty controlling if we are honest with ourselves. We must...
"Get into the Word
Study the Word.
Memorize the Word.
Speak the Word.
Meditate on the Word.
Act on the Word."
"No matter what comes your way, you can make it become a pathway to destiny. Whatever you do, never give up. The process of faith is the ability to endure. Your faith is dependence upon your ability to trust, and your level of trust is determined by your relationship with Christ. Fill your life with faith by getting to know God."
For a faith lift, check your library or local bookstore for this little book full of ideas on how to become who God wants you to be
