Well this post is a few days late but I’m excited to get on track for June!! It’s a new month, the start of a new season and an opportunity for new beginnings. This month is a month to just simply BELIEVE. To believe in the promises of God for your life and to walk in all that God has for you. To make that FIRST step into reaching your goals and accomplishing your dreams. Don’t think of what you haven’t done, but think of what you are going to do and DO IT!!
One thing the Lord has been dealing with me about is doubt. It’s so easy to get distracted and overwhelmed by the things we aren’t doing in life or how we never measure up to what we know our heart desires. One thing I have learned about doubt over this past month is that the Lord never places doubt in our lives; doubt comes directly from the enemy. The enemy knows what we can do and who we can be by the “measure of faith” given to us by the Father (Romans 12:3). Therefore he attacks our mind and destroys our self-worth. He speaks lies over us which is directly against the word of God BUT most of the time we don’t realize it’s against the word of God because we haven’t take the time just to BE in the presence of the Lord and hide His truth in our hearts. Our lives are busy, our quiet times become a short 30 second prayer as we are walking out the door, and our circumstances begin to look absolutely hopeless.
I want to speak to your circumstances for a few minutes. If you get a chance today read Romans 4:18-21. This is one of my favorite passages of scripture because I get so much encouragement from Abrahams faith. He believed (fully satisfied and assured) in who God was. Even when his circumstances looked absolutely hopeless and the enemy tempted him to give up hope and forget his promise he still believed by giving glory and praise to God always. It was the words he spoke in faith and the truth he hid in his heart that strengthen him day by day. We can see so much power in his words and relate that to our own lives. Every time you step out in faith and praise God in the midst of a hopeless situation there is a battle that is waging for your destiny. Don’t give up. You may not see the results of it yet but keep hoping in faith. Believe that the words you speak have the power to shape and affect the next generation.
It’s a new month and it’s not too late to make some goals for yourself. They don’t have to be big goals but can simply be little goals that allow you to keep your mind focused on praising God through each and every circumstances. Make some goals that allow you to enjoy life and the beauty of it. Smile a little more and BELIEVE God sees you.
Here is to the month of June!!!
-Read I Am Your Sign
-No social media before 10am and fast from social media 2x/week.
-Be intentional about giving my mornings completely to the Lord and consistently waking up at 5:30am. For me, waking up early when no one else is awake, is my favorite time to have my quiet time.
-Clean eating and NO SWEETS this month.
-Blog 1x/week. Write everyday.
-Read two of my favorite blogs per week.
-Start a toastmasters course and attend 3x this month.
-Be a bridesmaid in my childhood best friend’s wedding in Florida!!! I can’t wait to watch her walk down the aisle and marry the man of her dreams!
-Spend time in FL with my mom on the beach before the wedding.
-Hammock in the park on a sunny day with some of my best friends.
-On my days off I want to focus on investing in relationships; whether it’s a phone call, getting coffee with a friend, or hanging out. We live in a media driven world where I believe communication suffers because we don’t take the time to just BE with people and those we love the most. “Your ears are your most important communication tool.”
-Laugh more. Enjoy the little things in life; I don’t want them to pass me by.
-Do a photo shoot, making memories with beautiful pictures.
-Make a new summer recipe.
-Go to the Dallas farmers market on a pretty day.
Happy June my friends!!!!
