Don’t Let Your Storm Overtake You

“Whatever you focus on will consume you and eventually overtake you”

Hey Girl,

I pray your today is better than yesterday.

My prayer for you today is PEACE. May the Lord overshadow you with an abundance of peace, right now in Jesus Name.  

We all go through, or what I like to label as, “grow through”. None of us are immune to pain.

There have been times in my life that pain held me hostage. The hurt, betrayal and anger I felt was at an all-time high. I understand that suffering must come, but I sure wish it would schedule its appearance to a more suitable date.  It shows up on the wrong day and at the wrong time.

“Whatever you focus on will consume you and eventually overtake you”.

May I encourage you to not allow your situation to get the best of you. When we are in the thick of it, all we seem to think about is the “Why” and the “What”. Why did this happen? What just happened? How can I fix it?

Take a moment and step away from your storm. Start focusing on what’s going right, as opposed to all that’s going wrong.  I’m sure you can list five good things you have going on right now. ( #1 – You are here )

Focus on that. Be thankful for the good and let God handle your situation.

You can’t control what happened.  You are only  responsible for how you respond.

Respond so that God is pleased.

I love you to life and think you are FABULOUS!

Be FABULOUS (even in the midst of the storm).
