What a tough week it has been, but I am thankful to the Lord that I made it through. Sometimes the pressures of the world can get to us and the thoughts of just bagging it all and starting over can find its way into our mind. Let me be the first to tell you to simply –shake it off! Life is just too difficult and at times we can desire for things to go perfectly with no mishaps, delays, or mistakes only to realize later on that they were never going to meet that standard in the first place.
When we can resolve in ours minds to not allow the things that make us crazy and the things that frustrate us dictate the outcome of our day, than we can truly live in the present joy of what Jesus already died for. I am the first to admit that shaking it off takes practice, but it is indeed possible through the Holy Spirit and also repeating many, many scriptures out loud!!!
I thank God for getting stronger, tougher, and more resilient and when I am in that posture of peace I can ride the wave and feel good in the skin …that I am in! Won’t you do the same and join me?
