Conversation with God – Jeremiah 29:11

It is written, “‘I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” (Jeremiah 29:11). My child, you are my sheep, and I am your Shepherd. You depend on me, the way a sheep depends on his shepherd; for survival. It is that serious. A matter of life and death. But you are in good hands, little one. The best Hands.

Fear not, for I am Your God. Fear is what the devils uses to get to you. Do not allow it to seep into your being. Remember my promises. Write them on the tablet of your heart. Use them as a shield against your Adversary.

My promises are not like your promises. My promises are always upheld. Until the end of time. My Word is true. It is the only Truth. So cling to my promises, as they are your life and your armor against fear.

10 Lies We Need to Stop Telling Ourselves

Freedom

Between a stimulus and response, there is always a space. And in that space lies your freedom.

 

Why Lying Hurts the Liar

When you lie to someone you love, even about something seemingly insignificant, each lie is like a brick in a wall going up between the two of you. And when he tells you he loves you, the wall deflects it away…

A Poem: “Your Love is Mean”

Your love is mean

Your love is mean

But you mean so much to me

How can it be?

Your lies, deceit

Your love is mean.

Can’t you see

just what I mean?

Why it’s your love I don’t need

Still you remain inside of me

Your love is mean.

Engage First and then Retreat

First engage with the world and then retreat from it. The devil wants you to believe in urgency, the lie that you can’t do both. The truth is, you can balance both engagement and retreat.

We are all creatures of habit. For those of us who are in the habit of constantly keeping busy, the problem is making the time to retreat and reflect… Or conversely, for the more introverted types, the problem can be getting out of your retreat stage and starting to engage with the world again. The devil wants you stuck. But God sets you free, allowing the possibility of a healthy flow between the two.

The Lies We Tell Ourselves

Don’t listen to the lies you tell yourself. Make no excuses. You deserve the life you want and no one is responsible for withholding that from you besides your own self! Wait on nothing. Except the Lord, our God. Wait on Him only and have faith that He will see you through this rough period of your life. God rewards action. Begin today, by taking strategic steps to put “life” back into your life. Sign up for activities, groups, volunteer, anything and everything that makes you feel alive!
