When I stopped allowing my circumstances to have more power over me than the HOLY SPIRIT IN ME, the mud pits of life took on a completely different form, and became the driving force to transformation in every facet of my life.
When I realized that my surroundings. my circumstances, and even the unjust experiences where people severely wronged me, brought out layers of truth in my own heart, that I was giving more power to my circumstances than to God, my eyes opened to a greater perspective.
That perspective has not only gotten me out of the mud pits of life so that I can turn and help others, it has also been the driving force that has launched me forward regardless of what I face.
And believe me…the hard experiences that are meant to knock me off course have been continuous!
When we choose to look at ourselves, our reactions and our behaviors rather than that person who rubbed us wrong, or the situation that we are facing, we learn the value of self-awareness, finding that these hard situations that stir up the uglies in us are a powerful opportunity for self-growth.
Our power and our peace will not be found in controlling everyone and everything around us, but by learning to connect with our own self and finding the root of our need to “control” stems from an underlining fear and insecurity.
When we face the fear and insecurity that was jolted by our circumstances (or a person), we then have an opportunity to face the truth of our own hearts and take back what others should never be able to take away.
Our peace, our joy and our confident trust, resting in God’s perfect love that casts out all fear!
So, when life “presses you” look inward. Don’t blame others or your circumstances for what you feel. That will automatically make you the victim in your life and as long as you stay a victim, you cannot rise into your full potential as a victorious child of God! ♥️, J
