Make a list of your current top 5 priorities.
Make a list of the top 5 things that absorb your time.
On a scale of 1-10 (with 1 being the least, 10 the most), how focused are you on your relationship with God? (There is no right or wrong answer)
Look over your responses. Do you feel happy or are you feeling the desire to reprioritize some things? (There is no right or wrong answer)
I have come to understand you can be in one of two places about things in life. You can have no understanding at all and draw your own conclusions about things or if God gives you understanding, that comes with the responsibility to handle it correctly and not let it make you bitter, angry, or resentful.
They say ignorance is bliss. I guess that’s because when you are given the gift of understanding it comes with the price of responsibility.
Life happens. There are plenty of things that will happen to each and every single one of us.
Fully and completely trusting God is the only way to make peace with the things or situations that have robbed (or are attempting to rob) your peace.
He works ALL THINGS together for your good, even the the things that feel like they’re going to break you. We are broken to be made and stripped to be equipped.
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28 NKJV
Can’t move forward living in the past folks. People pray for #husband or #wife but are still picking up the phone every time an X calls…. position yourself to be FULLY equipped for what you’re asking for!
Ladies and Gentlemen too… trust me, I KNOW. It’s hard, it’s tough, it’s disappointing and in some cases devastating but you cannot give up. You just can’t. Often times we accept the love we THINK we deserve and God wants you to have the best. That doesn’t mean have unrealistic demands and expectations but don’t settle for a mate that requires assembly either. If you want God’s best? Do it His way. #ThatIsAll #dating #love #marriage #single #men #women
