Lately I have been allowing people to disrupt my soul, my inner peace. Battling with trying to refrain from stepping outside of myself, But as I realized once before, people only have as much control over you as you allow.
It seems as though when you are trying to better yourself, inside and out the world attacks you just to bring you back from where you came. Situations arise, things begin to be said, all resulting in a negative atmosphere trying to consume you.
As a woman trying to grow closer to God, and practice mindfulness, I have to take a step back and analyse the things going on around me. Re evaluating who I am choosing to let inside my world vs who I will gladly dismiss on the count of the bad “ju ju” they bring about.
My peace is worth so much more to me than the mere ignorance of others.
I will not allow anyone to disrupt my soul
I am taking my power back and dismissing all bad ju ju from my presence, whether in the physical or the virtual form, it is no longer welcome in my space.
We have to take back control and speak over ourselves in order to manifest the unimaginable and the unattainable.
I can do everything through Him who gives me strength -(philippians 4:13)
Ask, and it will be given – (John 15:7)
What if God says no?
If you all are human, to say the least; then like me you have come to question why has God not come forth and answered your prayers. Well, I ask this question a lot and until just recently I know exactly why.
It isn’t that God does not hear us, or does not want to answer our prayers, it is just a lesson that is trying to be taught.
It is within US, to make a difference upon the prayers that we pray. I’m learning that a prayer is nothing without a sight of action in trying to meet God half way.
For example: Say you pray and ask God for guidance and courage to do something.
Well, he hears you BUT, in order for him to even begin helping you, you must first help yourself. Make the effort and take the initiative to at least try whatever it is you are praying for. We can’t expect God to just immediately make things work for us if we don’t at least try.
Going back to God not answering, or “Saying no.” He will give us the only thing he can, and that, is his grace. Now, if you make no effort to try and do things on your own, then all you will have is God’s grace but without the blessing that comes with it. Although his grace is a blessing upon itself, imagine how much more God will bless, and guide you if you only try and step out on faith….
Although mentally our emotions control our overall being….. Try and never let your emotions dictate your actions.
