Pray before you speak in anger. If you be still and allow God to move on your behalf, you’ll be amazed by how God chooses to bless you. The person you may be impatient with could be the person who shows you the kindness and compassion you need to smile again. That petty issue that you’re upset about, could be a misunderstanding, and if you remain humble for God, and listen to His voice, something beautiful can be birthed from you not giving in to your anger. It’s easy to feel and give into those feelings, whether they’re justified or not, but don’t act out of feelings alone.

Respond with truth and respond in love. Sometimes we must be silent, in order to hear God clearly. So, quiet those thoughts, words, anxieties, and learn to be still. You may help lead someone to Christ, or the person you’re upset with could have a powerful testimony you need, or you may have the patience and gentle spirit they need to get inspired and put things into proper perspective.

Everything happens for a reason. You may not know that when a situation arises that you can’t make sense out of, but know this, you will be surprised at how God moves in your life when you don’t react in anger, when you stay patient, and when you remain humble. Doing these things allows you to put yourself and your feelings aside, and allow God to not only fight on your behalf, but allow His glory to shine on you. I challenge you to be at peace the next time you want to act in anger, and watch the good that comes out of the situation. You can’t go wrong when you choose to fight the right way.

What’s the right way to fight when you’re triggered? You fight by being still. How to be still? By not giving into your anger. Don’t allow anger to control you. Control it, by letting letting it go, and allowing our Awesome God to fight for you!

Ephesians 4:26 (GNT)

“If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, and do not stay angry all day.”

God is a deliverer! I pray for those who are battling addictions of any kind. Life is hard, unfair, and uncertain… but guess what? You are more than a conqueror, you’re blessed and highly favored, and you can be sure that God always has your best interest at heart! You don’t have to carry those burdens alone, there’s hope!

You don’t have to live life anxious, strung out, fearful, or defeated! Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and if you turn your worries over to Him, He will give you rest (peace). There’s a better way than numbing the temporary pains of life with temporary pleasures that can cause permanent damage to you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, if you don’t release it. You don’t have to trade one struggle for another. Let go and let God. 

The troubles that we face in this life, can’t compare to the glory that will be revealed in those who are in Christ. So, don’t lose hope. Allow God to help you. You are more than what you go through. You are more than an addict, and through Christ, you are more than a conqueror! 

In life, we experience a lot of bad things, but there’s also a lot of good. The first step to experiencing the good, is to LET GO of anything that’s doing more harm in your life than good. Give it to God by going to Him, asking for His help, and truly having the heart to release that thing that’s keeping you bound. Through Christ, you have power over any snare, generational curse, or strong holds! You don’t have to get comfortable with struggle, addictions, and defeat.

Never lose hope. We may not know everything, but there’s one thing we can be certain of. If we put our faith in God, He’s promised us hope and a future in Christ. It’s time to experience the peace that surpasses all understanding, joy that can’t be taken away, and a love like no other. “How to let go and let God,” get your copy today.  👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾

If someone wants to walk out of your life, let them go! It could be the best thing that ever happened to you. Holding on to the wrong person can keep you from the right one, or even delay your blessings. Let them move out of your way, so that you can see clearly. Sometimes, the very person you’re holding on to is your biggest distraction.

Don’t be a person who tries to make everyone or even one person love you. You can’t make anyone treat you right, love you, or be loyal to you. Accept the fact that a part of growing is accepting the fact that you will grow apart from some people. Some of these people will be friends or family members. Not everyone can go where God is taking you.

So, if they leave, bid them farewell, and continue to keep on keeping on. What God has for you, is for you, whether it’s a relationship, job, healing and wholeness, financial breakthrough, or whatever you need. God is the Source. Everything else is a resource. Depend on no one but God alone, and remember, if God is all you have, you have EVERYTHING, that you need. ❤️

Read my book, “How to let go and let God.”

Some people don’t stay in a relationship out of love, they stay because they’re in fear. Fear of being alone. Fear of starting over. Fear of losing something. Fear of the unknown, or even the future, to name a few.

Love has nothing to do with fear. 1 John 4:18 (GNT) “There is no fear in love; perfect love drives out all fear. So then, love has not been made perfect in anyone who is afraid, because fear has to do with punishment.” If you are being held hostage by your own fears, it’s time to overcome those “what if’s” and those negative thoughts, and replace them with the thoughts God has for you. God has said, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Stop holding on to people who mean you no good, out of fear of who you think you’ll become outside of them. Put your complete faith in God, and know that He got you. Never put a person in the position to be Lord over your life. That position belongs to God. Power belongs to God.

If He can love the real you, so can you. The only way to receive God’s best for you is to let go of what you consider, the best that you can do. Read my book, “How to let go and let God.”

I might step on some toes, but here goes…

Sometimes it’s not the enemy… it’s you, but blaming the enemy keeps YOU from being accountable for your actions, and it keeps YOU comfortable in your mess. Now, that mess could mean anything. It could be YOUR own ways, a lack of faith, living with a victims mentality, and so many other things people are comfortably struggling with. You would think that struggling is uncomfortable, but some people have gotten so accustomed to it that it has become their way of life. They blame the enemy for showing up to the fight, but they don’t take accountability for being unprepared. Instead, they just lay there and take the punches and complain, when God has equipped them with everything they need to fight their battles.

This battle is not for the faint of heart, and Jesus said, we each have to carry our cross. If you claim to be a child of God, stop living with a defeated mindset. As long as YOU continue to live with a defeated mindset, you’ll continue to lose, because in your mind, your situations or what you see has already won… You better come out of that and get back in the game. Stop taking punch, after punch, after punch and put on the whole armor of God and fight back.

God doesn’t have any cowardly soldiers. Get out of YOUR feelings! I purposely capitalized YOU and YOUR because when you choose to blame people, or even the enemy for your lack of faith, success, or anything else you feel you lack in your life, it’s not really about them, it’s about you. Everything else should be a non factor, because you should be confident in who you are and whose you are. The enemy only have the power you give him.

Take your power back by getting out of your feelings. At some point you must learn to let go… Quit comfortably struggling and get my new book, “How to let go and let God.” Click below! ❤️

Dear God,
Forgive my sins and heal my heart. Heal that deep dark place that I hide behind my smile, my gifts, and my wisdom. Get rid of that spirit of perversion which is causing me to be double minded and blind to the Truth. You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life, Jesus. Lord, I trust you with my entire being. It’s your Spirit who keeps me focused when the distractions are closing in on me, or when things aren’t going according to plan. Help me to remember that you chose me. Not because I’m perfect, but because your perfect will can be done through me and because you first loved me. Wash me in your blood. Remove those suppressed feelings that are secretly harboring garbage in my spirit. I denounce bitterness, hate, vengeance, lust, rage, envy, depression, physical or mental sickness, and any foolishness of this world. I look to you God, to repair my brokenness. I can’t do this by myself and no one else has that power. I give myself away, completely to you. Change me and make me more like you. Change my way of thinking. Let my walk match my talk, and let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight. Let whatever I do in the dark, match what I profess in the light. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

When we choose to let go of the things beyond our control, we give God the opportunity to be Lord over our lives. There’s a different kind of freedom and peace that comes with completely releasing those issues of the heart to God and trusting Him to do what only He can in whatever way He chooses. The peace and freedom is not of this world, it surpasses all understanding because only the Spirit of God can give it. God’s spirit becomes our calm within a storm. Our overall wellbeing thanks us for releasing those burdens.

Get to a place of which you completely trust God with your issues, past and present. Some things aren’t meant for you to carry on your own to include the hook of bitterness. When someone holds on to an offense, it hooks them and becomes a snare of destruction. You may think you’re punishing the person who’ve done wrong by you, but you’re really punishing yourself because the longer you hold on to this hook, the heavier it gets. The weight increases because it’s baggage.

It gets in the way of you experiencing the joy and love that you deserves, which adds more and more baggage to that hook.
You may think you’re in control of this hook, but really you’re hooked. You’re hooked on pain because you refuse to let go. The hook of bitterness comes in and robs individuals of life. Instead of living, they’re struggling to survive and they’re doing this the best way they can within their own power, but you don’t have to bear the weight alone when all you have to do is put your trust in the power of God. He can do more with the issues of your heart than you ever could.

Matthew 11:28

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.

Don’t ever give yourself away to the point of which another human being has power over your life. Power over your happiness, your smile, your purpose, your day to day life, or how you interact with family and friends. When you give a person your everything, and make your life revolve around them and only them… you’re making that person your god, and you are putting your life in danger, because if and when that person walks away they are taking every single thing you’ve given to them, with them. They’re taking your mental health, emotional health, spiritual, and in a lot of cases physical health with them as well, and they are leaving you malnourished and on the brink of death. This is why it’s so important to seek God first.

Get lost in God’s love first, then love yourself without having to be attached to another person, and learn become whole. The wrong spirits know who to prey on. If you don’t know who you are, you will try to find your identity in a relationship or other people. If you don’t love yourself, you will also look for the love you should be giving yourself within a relationship, or again, other people. Those ungodly spirits will trick you into believing a person is your savior and they will use the wrong person to try to kill, steal, and destroy your life.

Your happiness and self love should never be tied to a person/people. Not your spouse, not your child, not your parents, friend, mentor, pastor or whomever. People aren’t perfect and not everyone has good intentions. Some people have ulterior motives. The wrong people will tell you what you want to hear, and they will manipulate you and prey on your weaknesses if you’re lead by your feelings.

Your identity isn’t found in people, it’s found in Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. God has to be your focus, not your feelings. For more insight, get your copy of my new book “How to let go and let God” by clicking the link below. ⤵️⤵️⤵️
