What's Holding You Back?

>> Wednesday, January 1, 2014

Today we begin a brand new year - 365 days of do-overs. I am so thankful that each day I awaken with a fresh start of God's mercy ready to cover me. Just thinking about that for a moment begs me to ask this question of myself. "What is holding me back from giving God my very best and trusting Him in every situation?" This year, especially this year I am going to focus on that. My Heavenly Father has proven Himself faithful over and over again so why do I continue to let life discourage me? Paul felt that way in Romans Chapter 7. He struggled with the flesh and being a slave to sin. Wrong mindsets and 'stinking thinking' are as much a sin as any of the "Big 10". Today I am going to focus on being so intentional on trusting God with each of my family members, my friends, my failures, my victories, and my every breath. I am pressing in and running MY race. I choose to abide with God and let His peace reign in my life. This is a bigger challenge for me than you think so I know it won't be easy but with God all things are possible. I believe when I do this others around me will rise higher as well. Biggest blessings to each of you for a Christ-Centered 2014! "The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning." Lamentations 3:22-23 (NLT) "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27(NIV)
