Have you spoke to God and asked, confessed, repented? Have you let Him know that you’re desires of your heart are awhat you long for? It’s not that He doesn’t already know, but the confession, makes it more of an “intimate” setting so to speak, more one on one! A chance for you to make a connection with the Heavenly Father! The one that loves you so deeply and has from the beginning, before you were a thought.

“I strongly encourage you to confess the Word of God out loud daily. Each time a thought comes to your mind that does not agree with God’s Word, confess the truth of His Word out loud, and you will find that the power of the Word will overcome the lie.” – Joyce Meyer
If we could change the world, we would, wouldn’t we? Our co-worker? The person that has wronged us most recently? Someone? Anyone? Surely it’s not I that needs to change, right!?
It’s hard to take a deep look at ourselves and see the flaws or even take a look at them, because then that would mean we have to ACKNOWLEDGE them and justify that we’re in fact sinners and we SUCK! Wow! Did I just say that?
Yes, yes I did! 😳
Think on this friend…. this can get messy… this can be scary and even… make you want to lead astray…
Don’t …. keep focused…
Keep grounded on God and what HE wants for YOU! He has a PURPOSE for you, a PLAN!
“To re-order your life God’s way, it’ll take some gut-level self-evaluation. You’ll need to do an inventory of every area of your life. You’ll need to take a look at your relationship with God, your spouse, your kids, and your co-workers. You’ll need to look at hurts, habits, and hang-ups that may be bringing you down. Nothing can be off limits.” – Rick Warren
So, when you’re on the inventory hunt and you’re seeing all the flaws, the potential hurts, habits and hang-ups, please don’t ever think for one moment, you’re alone! Someone has been down this exact path before you and knows what you’re going through, they could be closer than you anticipate.
Does your church, if you go, have a class for this such as “Celebrate Recovery?” A place for anonymity…. This could be an amazing opportunity to have others to come to and find that support you have needed or wanted all along… don’t give up! Pray! Let Him lead you wherever that may be… be the change you want to see and allow others to follow along! You’ll be amazed at what God can do!
