Many decisions that we make are good and making the right decision is awesome. However, we must follow our decision making with discipline. The reason why is very often our decisions are fueled with an excitement of emotions which gets us started in the right direction. But once the emotions dissipates, our discipline (the ability to follow through) will help us achieve our goals.
Focus on what is working in your life and watch it expand.
The more you focus on what is working in your life, the better life will get for you or at least it may feel that way which will keep you motivated and inspired. It’s similar to the attitude of gratitude, by acknowledging what you are grateful for–you find more to be grateful for.
What is working in your life? List it in the comments below.
The truth is, you are loved.
You are precious.
You are valued and you were wonderfully and fearfully made by God.
Don’t allow regret from past decisions steal your joy and peace today. The past is the past! Extrapolate the lessons learned from your past experiences and move forward in life applying and implementing the knowledge gained from those situations that impacted you negatively.
There are some people who live lives short of God’s best because they expect things to be easy, But having this expectation can cheat us out of the rewards that God has for us simply because we want to avoid difficulty, God never promised that we can get through life by clicking the easy button. In fact, He promised us that we will have trials and tribulations and if we don’t get weary doing good we will reap rewards.
This tells us that there are blessings on the other side difficulties ( if our decisions are in alignment with His). So, If you refuse to give up, with God’s help you will overcome challenges and receive God’s best for your life.
Each new day that we are blessed to live is divided into 24-hour increments. When our eyes open in the morning, and we have the ability to move and have our being, we are blessed with opportunity to begin again, to try again, as well as place our hopes and thoughts in our dreams and visions again. Don’t take life or small beginnings for granted.
Too often we don’t move against the enemy when he comes against us with discouragement, fear, guilt or doubt. We listen to lies of the deceiver and stand in agreement with him, instead of standing on the word of God. The bible promised that we will experience trials and tribulations, none of us are exempt. We must fight the good fight of faith. The question becomes, is your faith built on quicksand or concrete?
