There is so much time spent trying to keep up with others, and if we are not doing that, we are running full speed ahead trying to control our future. Talk about OUT OF ORDER! If you are constantly feeling overwhelmed, all over the place, and feeling like a failure take a step back for a moment. It could possibly be that you are operating outside of the measure of grace that you have been given. We each have grace to do what we need to be doing in each season. Some seasons in our lives require a little more grace than others, but still, it is exactly what we need. Are you trying to do way too much in this season in your life? Why? Did the Lord really tell you to put that on your plate or are you knee deep in people pleasing? Are there things pulling you away from time you could be spending praying, studying the word, and getting your soul right? Are you scared that if you slow down, you will miss out on something? It’s good to self-evaluate or your body will end up doing it for you. It will breakdown and give out! Girl take some of this stuff off your plate and REST! The Father has a path for you, and it does not involve hurry, overwhelm, anxiety, fear, and doubt. Oh what freedom we have when we learn from Him and find rest for our souls! -Blessings
PRAYER & JOURNALING FOCUS
Forgetting the Past
This is a topic dear to my heart. We all have a past good and bad. However, I am encouraged by Apostle Paul when he says in, “But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14)”
Paul did not allow the bad to keep Him from God’s calling on his life, he did not allow everything that was good about him to make him prideful, and he did not allow the good he had done keep him from doing good in the days ahead.
So, as you think about what God has done and how He has brought you out, share with us a verse that has kept you pressing forward despite your past.
Lord, show me the areas that I am stuck because I am still hanging on the things of the past.
Join us over the next few weeks as we rest in the word in forgetting the past! I am excited and humbled to lead you in this way. I will also be sharing some notes from my book Forgetting My Past, To Embrace the Future.
