Let’s learn to do adulting in a different way. Walk away from fights that will never be resolved.

I’ve been thinking a lot about life as an adult and I’ve come to the conclusion that you can have unrealistic expectations about people. We cannot control how someone treats us, but we can control whether we become a victim or a victorious.

Pay close attention to who you are with when you feel the best and who brings out the ugly side of you. Don’t get attached to grief, heartbreaks, and disrespect.

Stress comes from your thoughts about what’s going on in your life. Adjust your expectations and stop telling yourself that you don’t know what to do.

Trust God to show you what needs to be healed in you, so you wouldn’t cause others pain.

1 Chronicles 4:9-10 Jabez was a very good man, who was better than his brothers. His mother said, “I have named him Jabez because I was in much pain when I had him.” Jabez prayed to the God of Israel and said, “I pray that you would bless me and give me more land! Be near me and don’t let anyone hurt me! Then I will not have any pain.” God gave Jabez what he asked for.”

God can turn your greatest sorrow into your greatest victory. Your prayer changes things.

Prayer Time: Father, keep us from evil that we may not cause pain. In Jesus Name, Amen.

It’s okay to delete the last chapter and start writing a new chapter. Don’t rehearse it! Don’t curse it! Stop giving your past oxygen! Let go of everything that is weighing you down.

Quote: “If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree.”

We all need to look at ourselves in the mirror and ask ourselves – “Am I truly happy?”

More people than we think are truly not happy with life.

Job in the most trying time in his life said, “The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

I want to believe that most of our unhappiness comes from losing things and looking for approval and validation from others instead of looking to Jesus the one who writes our life’s plan and who has already written the last chapter.

Don’t be the last one standing in the circle to realize that you are not happy with how your plans are coming along.

You may feel that you are in charge but the truth is, God is in control. And you will realize that when you longer can control anything.

When you get to sit at Jesus feet and learn his wisdom, you will marvel that the low moments in your life were never truly rock bottom. Underneath you are God’s everlasting arms.

I pray that you will be able to say, “ I wasn’t meant to live feeling depressed, guilty, or unworthy. I was created to live victoriously.”

Prayer Time: Father, pass me not, O gentle Savior, Hear my humble cry; While on others Thou art calling, Do not pass me by. In Jesus Name, Amen and Amen.

Who on earth do we have but God. Who in heaven do we have but God. I don’t care how hard life gets, don’t lose your faith in Jesus

Prayer is God’s answer to fear and anxiety.

The song goes like this – “Why worry, when you can pray? Seek Jesus, He will make a way. Don’t be like doubtful Thomas, just rest upon His promise, Why worry, worry, worry, when you can pray?”

God loves everyone in the world. He causes the sun to shine and the rain to fall on everyone, no matter who they are or what they are guilty of. Good and bad things happen to everyone whether you believe in God and or you don’t.

The Bible says that God is no respecter of persons. There’s no 1% with God. He’s a fair God. The good and bad times fall on everyone.

Can a mother forget the child she has carried for 9 months? Even if she may forget her child, God does not forget any of His children.

When we come to Jesus, He changes our last name. We are known as sons and daughters.

Our old nature is changed. The things we used to do, we do them no more. The places we used to go, we don’t go there no more. The things we used to say, we don’t say them more. It’s a total exchange from doing our way to God’s way.

Prayer Time: Father, you are a good, good daddy. We feel so secured in knowing that there are no favourites in your sight. Thank you for exchanging our worthlessness to becoming valuable. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Everyone who fear God and does what is right, He calls them His sons and daughters.

Remember no one will ever, ever, ever love you like Jesus and that’s a winner’s mentality.

We are so insecure about the speed our lives are going at that we unintentionally become overwhelmed with all the moving parts that make us slip right into trying to find quick solutions to problems that we don’t even have the capacity to resolve.

The next time that you feel like things are mentally getting out of control, say out loud, “The very hairs of my head are numbered by my Heavenly Father.”

We are living in very dark and evil days. The bad news is, Satan is after you, your children, your finances, your health more than ever before.

The good news is, God without you is still God.

But you without God is Satan’s rag doll.

Don’t let your heart fail because of Satan’s tactics. When Goliath challenged David, David said to the giant, “All the people gathered here will know that the Lord doesn’t need swords or spears to save people. The battle belongs to the Lord, and he will help us defeat all of you.”

If you lose everything, you still have God and that’s enough to start over again.

Prayer Time: Father, thank you that there’s nothing too little or too great for you to rule and overrule. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Today is another chance to put your trust in the eternal God. God never fails to show up and show off on your behalf. This is going to be a ‘God did it’ kind of week.
