We can spend a lot of time in sorrow in our lives over what we fear. Our fears can disturb our peace and limit our possibilities. Even if you cannot conquer your fear in one act name what your life looks like absent that fear. Speak into your consciousness life without that particular fear, as you imagine being free of it you have begun to defeat it.

Envy, fear, guilt, jealousy, resentment and shame are heavy emotions to carry. Take the limits off of your forgiveness; meaning your forgiving of others and yourself and release toxic emotions that weigh you down. You were born to fly and sometimes hurtful events in our lives interrupt our flight. Take back your wings and let forgiveness elevate you.
You have to admit there is a problem in order to begin the process of repair. Denial can delay your healing and deliverance. So take a deep breath, pray, open your eyes and face the problem. It really is an opportunity waiting to be addressed.
It is much easier to be critical than to be correct; to be condemning than empowering. Resist the easy path of being judgmental and live with the measure of grace for others that you receive daily from God.
God has a way of giving us what we need in very unexpected ways. So don’t look for your blessing to come from familiar sources. Be open to a new path of provision.
God is the creator and source of all that is true love. True love is unconditional, unmerited, and unlimited. We can’t buy it, earn it, demand it. It is a pure gift, freely given, and freely received. True love considers the best interests of the other and does what is loving. When we say, “I love you” do we mean it?
Do not ignore your anger. Anger can be a sign to let us know that something in our life needs changing and anger can be part of the energy needed to make a change.
Trust is imperative in a good relationship. It is essential in honest communication. Distrust can be an important warning sign that you need to step back look and listen, even delay some of your actions until you understand your feelings.
It has been said that ‘You gain strength, courage, and confidence every time you face your fears.’ I think you also gain spiritual muscles every time you face your fears with your faith establishing your living witness of God’s power working in your life.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
Sometimes we go through a day without hoping for anything. Exercise your faith and make a mental list of what you are have hope for today. Stay ready to praise as what you hope for is manifested!
