This week has been so fun really kicking the blog off and being Christmas time, but we all know there is an enemy who doesn’t want us at peace. I’ve had more stuff break around my house, more unexpected payments to make, and more disappointment in what I am able to give this season all year in this week alone.
How many times in your life do you think “man I’m feelin’ great! Everything is under control..” then BOOM, nothing is under control? We all face this. It seems like without question when something good happens, something bad comes close behind. There is good news though.
2 Timothy 1:7 tells us “God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” I know most of you have heard this scripture but this is how it applies in real life when it comes to choosing the right spirit..When these bad things come, and they will come (always), we have a decision to make. We either tuck our tails and run and sob, or we dig our toes in the ground and get an extra jump to keep on running. When we choose this, we are declaring that nothing will stop us from doing good.Here is the beautiful thing about choosing the spirit God gave you of power, love, and self-discipline: nothing can stop you. When you realize that what makes you “go” is not the money, it’s not the popularity, it’s not the fear of what you will lose, then you are taking the power away from those things and putting it back in yourself. Those things can be taken away from you at any moment, but if you have a spirit that won’t quit, you have nothing to fear because that spirit is the tool that will always keep producing in your life. No matter what comes.
