What happens when we stop looking for God to lead us to what we need and realize that God is all that we need? Imagine putting all the energy we use to find “ourselves” into finding our creator; what then would we look like? What would we stress about, what would we fight against? If you want to be a great lover why not go to God who is love, if you want to be a better friend why not mirror the only friend who would die for you Jesus Christ, if you want to be creative why not become buddies with the creator of the universe. The answer to your joy, peace, promotion, demise, it’s all in God. So, why do we stay so far away from the key to it all? Because we don’t know any better and life lies to us. Life tells us not to put all of our eggs in one basket but that is man’s rule, not Gods. I have finally come to a place in life where if it’s not God I don’t want it. He is the egg, the basket, the hand that puts into it and the hand that takes out of it. So now I pose a very honest question, do you really believe in the God you say you believe in? If not what’s holding you back? Find it, and ask God to conquer that fear, hesitation, and mistrust because the truth is life is despicable without God. Peace
There is no love like the love of the love of our heavenly Father. This love is so incredible that it loves you past mistakes, failed intention, and even betrayal. God wants His people to know that you have His love. You don’t deserve it, because this is an unconditional love, but still God wants you to have it. This kind of love will never make you cry in the middle of the night. This love is so powerful that it kicks fear and anguish in the behind. This loves wakes you in the morning, gives you the ability to work and support yourself, has made a place for you to live… all while you choose to ignore it because of you don’t understand that you don’t have to “like” everything your lover does in order to love and respect them. If you haven’t today, thank God for His prevailing Love in your life.

Sometimes the hardest part of success is actually starting. It’s easy to say have faith, be strong, hold on, want better… But until you get the strength to start you simply have a notion. There is “something to” starting, you have to put your fears, and hardships behind you. You have to want to succeed more than you want comfort, and convenience. If there is something you’d like to change in your life, I challenge you to start! Acknowledge the hang ups that have held you back in the past and move on. Meditate on the change until you build the audacity to go after it. Print out a picture of it, draw it, Google someone doing it… Don’t let it out of your site until you start.
