Always stay true to yourself! You may lose some lose some friends and even loved ones, but those that stick with you, believe in you, and want what’s best for you, are worth the risk of losing when you do find yourself and who is still standing with you! But one thing is for sure, even if no one is standing by your side when you look in the mirror and see your true self, know that GOD IS ALWAYS WITH YOU!!!!
There is one book, “Jesus Calling”, by Sarah Young, that I have picked up every day for the last two in half years. I highly recommend this daily devotional as it has touched my life in so many ways. It is as if God is speaking directly to me on so many days and in so many ways! He too will speak to you through Sarah! I’m going to quote the devotional that prompted today’s message above!
“I have promised to meet all your needs according to My glorious riches. Your deepest, most constant need is for My Peace. I have planted Peace in the garden of your heart, where I live, but there are weeds growing there too: pride, worry, selfishness, unbelief. I am the Gardener, and I am working to rid your heart of those weeds. I do My work in various ways. When you sit quietly with Me, I shine the Light of My Presence directly into your heart. In this heavenly Light, Peace grows abundantly and weeds shrivel up. I also send trials into your life. When you trust Me in the midst of trouble, Peace flourishes and weeds die away. Thank Me for troublesome situations; the Peace they can produce far outweighs the trials you endure.”
– Sarah Young
It’s important that we do put aside every day some quiet time to sit and talk to God. Give Him your burdens. Talk to Him as you would your best friend. Welcome Him into your heart, and He will remove the weeds from your life! Just remember, it is in His timing and that there will be mountains we must climb if we are to learn to become better versions of ourselves! Enjoy the journey – the good and the bad – look for the positive in everything because everything happens for a reason!
