Oh! The pressure!
The voices clamoring for your attention…
What about this?
What about that
Whatchu gonna do about this?
Whatchu gonna do about that?
Turn it off.
I particularly heard Him say these words to me as I read this scripture this morning: ‘Don’t be troubled, don’t be afraid…’
“I leave the gift of peace with you—my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous!”
John 14:27 TPT
The next level of your life, the next things God will do in and through you will require deeper intimacy with Him
It’ll need you to be in a place where, no matter the storm, you hear his quiet whisper of love
And just like a child sent out in the morning with a warm hug faces the day knowing he’s loved by mummy and daddy, you just know that:
You are loved
You are protected
You are cared for..
Everything IS okay, even when it doesn’t look like it
Because, things will happen to try take your focus off
Things will happen to make you feel tired before you even start
Things will happen to make you question your ability, your worth, your progress…
But, don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your heart.
Accept his peace, it isn’t fragile
It doesn’t shake in the face of the slightest opposition
Accept it and Be courageous!
Everything will turn out well in the end, and if it hasn’t turned out well, just know it isn’t the end
“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.”― Mary Anne Radmacher
