Encouragement for Women Run Your Race

Don’t believe the hype…believe God

Confession time. I don’t know about you, but the moment I open my eyes in the morning there’s a war going on in my thoughts. A flood of negative reminders and fears come flooding in such as my weight gain, a nagging issue in my marriage, that friend that just isn’t communicating, that person who lied to me, debts that need to be paid off, that family member who just isn’t getting it, the mundane tasks that need to be tended to but are just so UGH, that friend’s scary health issue, and the list goes on and on until I have to literally just tell my mind to stop and then focus in on one truth, and it’s this one: GOD SAVED ME.

Then I can move on and get out of bed and face the day. Some days are better than others, but today was tough. I am running behind already. I don’t have an outfit picked out for work, and I am pretty sure I am going to have a bad hair day. All that to say that I confess I am a mess, but I believe God when He says, “I know the plans I have for you I have for you…plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11. He has a divine plan for this day. I don’t know what it is yet, but I am trusting Him. Lord knows I can’t control it so I will believe.

I pray that today is another day of believing God for me and you so we can live and move and breathe in the freedom despite the barrage of thoughts and situations that we face today. We are His, and that makes believing Him possible. Thank you for reading today, and away we go…

With all my heart,

Thanks Sonia! I needed this especially today and the past few days. My anxiety has been kicking in, I think and think and scenarios run through my mind. I hate it. But one thing I have been working on, reminding myself God is wonderful and that even though I don’t understand the why’s and how come this and that, he will be on control of this bumpy ride because I believe in him. It’s hard. I feel things are never easy leaving things on his hands and not think about them. But I pray that everyday of a struggle is a wonderful day because he is in control and because when the right time comes, it’ll be a great day. But for now, I have to keep praying and holding on to him no matter what.

Have a great day!

Just the inspiration I needed today. Switching negative thoughts to focus on the cross puts everything into perspective. Thank you for your beautiful posts of wise words.
