You have a dream for your life. God actually gave it to you Himself. His desire is that you would live undaunted.
That is, He does not want you to be intimidated or discouraged by difficulty, danger, or disappointment. Even by a pandemic and all that comes with that.
However, life often feels like everything is going against you. You’re in a battle. A battle you seem to be losing. Everything is falling apart. Nothing is working. And you’ve run out of ideas.
You need help. But you feel totally alone.
Your spiritual reflex is to cry out to God.
But nothing seems to be changing.
Then The Lord quietly reminds you, that if you want to live undaunted, you will need to seek His presence & His wisdom. It seems too simple to be true. But it is.
Nevertheless, it’s not always easy. For when anxiety & frustration threaten your dream, they also threaten your identity. You can easily forget that you are created in the image of God and that He is the Author of your dream. Yes, emotions can be serious distractions that can deter you from your destiny. As a result, you may begin to speculate, to consider possible outcomes & create strategies that may send you off in the wrong direction altogether.
But emotions & speculations can also be signposts. Reminders that you’re trying to walk alone, which you were never intended to do.
And reminders that God turns that attempt to deter you into a new level of determination. How cool is that?
Yes, if you want to live undaunted and what you’re doing isn’t working, ask your heavenly Father. He loves to help.
You won’t be condescended to when you ask for His help.
So ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought.
He won’t scold you.
Instead He will overwhelm your failures with His generous grace.JAMES 1:5-8
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.EPHESIANS 3:14-17a
I celebrate who men are & acknowledge your incomparable contributions as husbands & fathers, coworkers & friends.
The world doesn’t recognize how truly amazing you are.
Nor are you affirmed & encouraged as much as you should be — even within the church.
You protect & provide for your loved ones, helping them solve problems, with a deep desire to see them become the best they can be.
I admire your dedication to keep on keeping on.
Even when your own needs — far too often — go unmet.
You were born to be the Hero in your own story.
The fact of the matter is, every hero needs someone who understands the pain and confusion of what is happening to him, someone who has the wisdom to guide him through it, to help him find his inner strength and divine wisdom.
To whom are you looking for guidance? Or are you trying to escape the pain through …
There is a better way. But you will have to connect with your Guide to find it.
Sometimes you need a guide to help you find your Guide. So if you need to figure out what to do next, let’s talk.
