Heart to Heart Grown Up Conversations

Today’s Topic: Don’t Go Tripping

I saw this funny quote: “I’m sorry I can’t go on your guilt trip with you today. I haven’t packed a thing and have nothing to wear anyway, can’t find my passport, haven’t had my shots and I really don’t speak the language.” The End.

Song of Solomon 2:15 says,
“Catch us the foxes, The little foxes that spoil the vines, For our vines have tender grapes.”

It’s usually the little things that causes you to trip. When you feel like you’re caving in to stress, pressure, pain, and failure … it’s time to pray. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Learn the language of the little foxes
and find your internal compass that will guide your thoughts and decisions getting you closer to living your best life.

We first need to ask ourselves some thought provoking questions like, ‘Why did I feel this way? and ‘Why don’t I feel this way anymore?’ The more you understand yourself is the better chance you have of staying on course.

None of us perfectly have it all together. We get it wrong nearly every time we open our mouth. It only takes one thoughtless reaction to create a rippling effect leaving you disappointed many times with your behavior.

There are fights you will win and fights you will lose. Every fight does not need an active participant.

The devil is very patient as he sits idly around throwing darts for you to trip over. Live well, live wisely, live humbly. Make a promise with yourself not to allow anyone to ruffle your feathers. Stop tripping over the same little foxes in your life.

Today is the day to let go of regrets, pain, anger, hate, and fear. Don’t be held a prisoner to things you cannot change. If you do what is right, you will be fine. But if you refuse to do what is right, sin waits outside the door.

Never ruin a good day by thinking about a bad situation. Give it time. You are the driver of your dream and the destination. There are bigger battles to fight.

PRAYER TIME: Father, thank you for teaching us how to let go of things that are holding us back from reaching our full potential. Forgive us for becoming emotionally trapped in our feelings and our reactions to outside influences. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Remember:
None of us perfectly have it all together. We get it wrong nearly every time we open our mouth. It only takes one thoughtless reaction to create a rippling effect leaving you disappointed many times with your behavior. There are fights you will win and fights you will lose. Every fight does not need an active participant.
