Get Up and Move – Beloved Women - April 26, 2019
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. - 2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
I was speaking with someone a while back, and I asked them how they were doing? They told me that they were just dealing with life. That really stuck with me, because sometimes we can get in a rut and we can say we are dealing with life, but it’s how we are dealing with life that will affect us in our journey. Our decisions today will give direction to what happens next in our life.
Have you ever looked around and wondered where the time has gone? It seems though life is passing you by and yet a lot of things in your life has remained the same. I found myself going through a rut where I was dealing with depression, anxiety and having panic attacks which I haven't dealt with in a while. But I couldn't continue to let myself stay in that place.
Sometimes we are waiting on others to come and save us when God has already told us what we need to do. It’s up for us to take the next step forward. With God's help, sometimes we are the ones to save ourselves out of our own pit. Don’t continue to believe the lies that the enemy tries to tell you. It won’t always be like this. By God’s grace, you have more power and control over your life than you think. So don’t continue to sit and allow life to pass by you. Trust God for the guidance and strength to get up and move.
Dear Heavenly Father, please forgive me of my hesitation in the things that concern You. I pray that I won't continue to bite off more than I can chew so that I will have the energy for the things that you have called me. In Jesus Name, I pray. Amen.
