So many times we get caught up living in the future, engulfed with worry or being dissatisfied with an uncontrollable situation. Always wanting more and losing sight of all we have been given. "I want the bigger house, the better car, the longer vacation, the better body, the bigger paycheck, etc..." So many times have i been trapped and entangled in the past, dwelling on hurt, pain, rejection, abandonment and all the darkness that often times comes with growing up. I searched for anything I could find to fill up the hole in my heart but nothing worked. One day, I was rehashing some painful memories for the millionth time when i heard a voice inside me say, " I do not live there, I AM right here, right now. If you want to walk with me, there must you live." Praise you Lord for your conviction because I was set free from the strongholds of dissatisfaction and ingratitude. As I prepare to open this new chapter in my life, Lord help me to remember where you live so that I can always find you. Help me find the satisfaction I need in you and only you. Make me yearn for you Lord from the moment I wake in the morning, until I lie down my head in the evening. Close the doors to any path that does not please you and make my life the splendor of your beauty. Amen He is called the great I AM. He is always with us, right here, right now.
I hope you have a awesome weekend. Monday, i will be posting about goal setting and how to we can live in the now, but still reach victories in our tomorrows.
