So many times in life we get down and discouraged and it seems that we have no where to turn and no one to turn to. They say when it rains it pours and before you know it all the bills are due, your car is in repossession status, your kids find any and every reason to be defiant, and your relationship is going down the drain. We can’t forget that J.O.B “Journey of the Broke” that you go to everyday just to listen to your boss tell you that you need to do more while they pay you less. By this time, I know that I have hit some nerves and probably have gotten a few Amen’s!
The key is not to focus on the negatives, but focus on the positives. Some people have a problem with finding out the positives in their lives, but in order to get through what is negatively affecting your life you must get to the root. I have a saying,” In order to appreciate the fruit you have to appreciate the root “. Yes, the root is dirty and sometimes if you’re lucky your root gets planted with poop, but realizing this is the fertilization process of producing the best fruit. Once you have realized that greater is He who is in you than anything that is in the world, you have made the first step to a positive outlook. We have to begin to speak things into existence that aren’t as if they really are.
The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy and what better way to destroy you in the physical than by starting with your mental. So often when we get down and we allow ourselves to stay down not realizing that we don’t have to waddle in our misery. Mentally, we have convinced ourselves that we are weak and we can not be over comers when in reality that’s when our natural instincts to defend ourselves should come out. Take a stand, be in control of your life, and fight for your right to live in peace. Pray that if you have to endure trials let them be with no sorrows. What I mean by this is sometimes we have to go through but praying to God that whatever comes our way we endure with a victorious spirit. Wake up daily and say to yourself I am more than a conqueror and I will not fail. Tell yourself that you have overcome all obstacles and you already have the victory!
When it seems that life is coming at you in every direction, literally stop in the middle of whatever is going on and regroup by declaring that you are walking in perfect peace. Sometimes the enemy doesn’t have to steal our joy, but we give it to him. Take back your joy, reclaim your victory, and let the enemy know that you have been broken but you are strong enough to know that you are not defeated. Take control of that very thing that was given to you by God and that is your life. You may have been broken but you are not weak!
