Replenish, fresh and new, are just a few words to describe my exact feelings at this present moment. Didn't start my day feeling that way though. In fact, I felt irritated, upset and angry. Funny how the devil works. Transparent moment for me today is that I work hard at being the best me that I know how to be but sometimes, my mood can alter depending on who is my presence. Which is reassurance that my relationship with God needs work. I say that because NO ONE absolutely NO ONE should ever be able to steal your joy or alter your mood, especially in a way that does not represent Godly behavior. I feel like there are some people in my life that bring out the good in me, yet there are others who can change my whole vibe when they are in my presence. In knowing that, one can say...well remove them out of your life and in some instances removing negative factors would probably be ideal as well as beneficial. In that same regard, should it be that easy to walk away from people?
I often battle with the question mentioned above, especially when those people include other attachments. Then I tell myself that it is best to seek guidance from God because sometimes when you are in your feelings, one can make decisions immaturely, that go against what God would have you to do. My goal is to be upgraded from dealing with people rudely when they have wronged me, to dealing with people more gently and showing them kindness despite of how they may treat me. You see the way you treat others despite of how they treat you also shows signs of maturity, strength and that you have developed spiritually. Like yes you pissed me off but you know what, I'm going to smile despite of, I'm going to have joy despite of and I'm going to keep praising God despite of because I know he will work it all out on my behalf! That is my aim in #BecomingaBetterme growing internally and learning that I'm in charge of my own happiness. I want to be so spiritually connected with God that my faith never waivers and my joy never ceases. My prayer today is that if there are others like me struggling to stay joyful, that you seek the only one that can make you better internally and that's God. Seek God daily and allow God to direct you every path, your every thought and your every action.
Today is Day 5 of the #BecomingaBettermechallenge and I've prayed quite a few times today and trust me, it was much needed. I also visited Triumph Church today their Eastland Campus and got in a much needed word and was blessed to hear Todd Dulaney sing in the service. I promise it is always good to be in the presence of the Lord and to praise where one or more are gathered. I worked out early this morning and worked primarily on the lower body, following a 10 minute workout video I found on YouTube check it out! https://youtu.be/dByTECYIUek In addiction to the 10 minute workout, I also added in 25 right leg lifts, 25 left leg lifts and a 30 second wall sit squat. My scripture for today will be Romans Chapter 12 KJV. Remember despite of anything keep working on #BecomingaBetteryou as I work on #BecomingaBetterme #yougotthis #dontgiveup #keepgoing and tell others to join the movement! Oh yeah, last but not least smile! Smiling is so good for the soul!
