Galatians 6:9

Patience does not come easy to me. I’ve always embraced instant gratification and if I didn’t get it I would quit what I was doing. From losing weight to stop drinking I gave up to early. I’ve tried to lose weight and stop drinking before. What is different this time? Why am I finally getting it? This time I have faith in my Higher Power and most importantly faith in myself to continue this arduous, but well worth it path to contentment. Fix what you can and what you can’t fix pray on it and give it to your Higher Power. Don’t give up! Your blessings maybe right around the corner!

James 5:16

When I was younger and ignorant I would pray for God to give me things. Give me money give me success give me health and a new body. It was all about giving to ME. What a selfish way to pray. Now I have let go of fox hole prayers. Now I pray selflessly thanking God for giving me another day at life another opportunity to grow and learn. I ask God that he gives me the wisdom, empathy, love, and fortitude I need to go about day helping others by first helping myself.

John 13:14

This passage taught me that in order to gain respect you have to show positive actions. What I say and what I do should be symbiotic, and less hypocritical. Washing the feet of others humbles me to The Lord. It proves nothing is beneath me in this world and I do it with love and Gods Will, no my will.

Successful leaders lead from the front. They also lead by example. I ask God Daily to help me lead from the front not the back, and lead with love not hate.

Deuteronomy 6:5

The Lord loved me when I didn’t love myself. Everyday I learn to love myself a little more with the help of my Higher Power, prayer and meditation. Prayer is extremely powerful and beneficial when done unselfishly. If you are a person of faith thoughts and prayers DO help, but you need love in your heart to spread the powerful message of faith. In my opinion, those who says “thoughts and prayers” don’t work are typically people who have never experienced the power of prayer. I am living proof that prayer is helpful.

The reason evil exists is so good people can rise above it. Without evil we have no good. We need more love for one another to let the light shine and the darkness fall.

Psalm 94:19

My anxiety, like for many, stems from fear. Fear drove me to not accomplish a plethora of things in life. Now I replace fear with faith. When I’m anxious, depressed, sad, joyful, or content I pray. I pray for more faith and less fear to continue on this journey. May we all have a great week with more faith and less fear!

Ephesians 6:11

“Putting on God’s armor daily”

My armor consist of love, prayer, & meditation!

Everyday I put on the full armor of God to live a healthier life in 3 aspects of my life. Physical, mental, and spiritual health. I have to fix myself before I can fix others and denounce evil.

Psalms 119:2

Since my divine intervention, which was 738 days ago, I pray read the Bible and meditated on the scriptures almost daily. It has helped me strengthen my morals and values. Without a strong foundation of self-reflection and God I would not be here today and for that I am forever blessed.
