Take Out The Trash

Has anyone ever left there trash in their house a couple extra days more than they probably should’ve? Maybe forgot to take it out before you went on a weeks vaction? You come back and your house stinks terrible. It’s not just in the kitchen, but you can smell it as soon as you walk in through the door! When we allow thoughts that doesn’t line up with biblical truth in our minds, it’s stinkiness soons reaches our heart and shows through our actions. We reap what we sow in our minds. Sow what the Spirit wants, not of your flesh. When you have a stinky thought, take it out to the trash where it belongs. Kick it to the curb! When we focus and meditate on what The Word of God says after we kick the lies to the curb, we will bear fruit. So.much.fruit! To know and identify the lies to kick them out, we also need to know the truth! I encourage you to really dig into your thought pattern and why you do the things you do. Find those roots or the chicken container you forgot about (so gross) and let Holy Spirit do a work in your heart!

Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
Romans 12:2 TPT

For those who are living according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh [which gratify the body], but those who are living according to the Spirit, [set their minds on] the things of the Spirit [His will and purpose].
ROMANS 8:5 AMP

For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
GALATIANS 6:8 AMP

Friendly Reminder For Those Who Are Having A Rough Day

With God, I am doing things I never thought I would be able to do. This IS NOT a list of my accomplishments, but a reminder that truly anything is possible with God. Even things that aren’t possible with man, God’s like no problem. Without God, I wouldn’t be alive today. & I definitely wouldn’t of been able to make it through that 5k this past weekend. (HAHAHA!)

Alright, alright, let’s be serious here…

But as I go through different stages of my life one thing remains the same.

God.

God’s faithfulness, his steadfast love & his word, the promises I hold so dearly to my heart.

So even if my world is completely flipped upside down, God already has a plan in motion for that.

If I make a mistake, God says I already have that worked out for the good of everyone. No worries.

If I need forgiveness, Jesus died for that.

If I need healing, Jesus said that was finished on the cross too.

If I am worried, God says he didn’t give me a spirit of fear or timidity, but of power love and a sound mind.

If I don’t feel loved, he brings me back to who he is. He is love. He brings me to a place of remembering where I was to, to where I am today. When I was broken and lost, suicidal and drowning in addiction and bondage to now walking in freedom, finally whole and exactly where I need to be. Living with purpose. All because of him and his love. He points me to look at Jesus. Our perfect example of faith and love. He points out to me that if I look around, his fingerprints of his love and faithfulness are everywhere. (even if people don’t give him the glory, doesn’t mean he didn’t do it)

If I feel like I need more, he says seek me and I will pour out upon you.

God is everything we need. He is everything I need every single moment of everyday. Every single breath I take, I need him.

His word, his presence, and who he is, brings us abundant peace.

Don’t get caught up with what the world is saying or doing, keep your eyes focused on heavenly realities. What others say about you don’t matter, God knows your heart.

I can go on for hours and hours about his promises. But sometimes, just like today, I needed a friendly reminder so maybe so do you.

Let go, let God.
Trust in his plan even if you can’t see it.

Take every thought captive that isn’t of him and toss it in hell where it belongs.

&

Remember that no matter what you are going through or facing, God has a plan that is perfect. & EVERYTHING is possible for the one who just simply BELIEVES.
