Happy Friday! I pray you're having a wonderful week! The weather has been very hot this week reaching the mid-80s. I have no complaints, I'm just grateful for each new day and the opportunity to live out God's plan and purpose for my life! We are almost halfway through the year and according to statistics this is the time of the year where most people have given up on their goals for the new year. When you are not living out your purpose then you are vulnerable to live your life based on the expectations and standards of the world. This lack of purpose can muster up all types of emotions and situations drawing you away from accomplishing your desired end results. I wanted to share some ways to remain in faith and live a purpose filled life.
First, you must always be aware of your current situation. Therefore embracing the opportunity to look within yourself is very important. When you can evaluate the condition of your heart you become aware of the necessary steps to repair it. Remember a person will never solve a problem if they are not aware that a problem even exist.
Awareness leads to growth. This type of growth comes by building your faith daily. Some may say daily is too much but life happens every day. Therefore, being equipped to handle life is a growth process. The only way to prepare and grow is by building your faith and trusting God to lead the way. In a practical way, reading, listening to motivational messages, and journaling are excellent opportunities to grow yourself in faith.
Faith is a journey! ..and joy is the passenger needed to complete the journey. The journey is definitely not easy but your purpose makes it all worth it. When you do not have joy then whatever happens each day determines how you feel. For example, if the day does not go well then you do not feel well either. However, when you have true joy you understand that the circumstance of today does not increase or decrease your life. Only God has the power to do that! Therefore, in all circumstances you will remain in love, peace, and joy!
As always thank you for reading! Have a blessed weekend!
