These last few weeks, I have really been confused on life. Looking at all the things around me and while being grateful for everything that has come my way, still feeling like something is missing. Still wondering what I am doing wrong, still wondering what I need to do to get to the next level.
I am a pen and paper kind of girl and I have number crunched and dreamed and planned things out, so many times in so many different ways and yet the past few years, I have still been stuck in the same place, making not so fast progress in my eyes. In fact, I have probably fallen back some instead of moving forward.
A month or so ago, I was checking out at Hobby Lobby and they had some books on sale. Me being the reader that I am snagged them for a later day. That later day just so happened to be in these last few weeks. Sometimes, God puts things in your life to make you stop and think and that is exactly what this book did. It was a relationship book and while the advice in it was solid, I pulled something entirely different from the book.
If you aren’t inviting God into your life, no matter how hard you work at things, you will never have the fulfillment that you are looking for.
This book intrigued me and let’s just say I needed this book at this exact time. I was broken down, to a point of not understanding a lot of things about the way life was going. It reminded me that I wasn’t praying like I should be, that I wasn’t spending time with God like I should be and that instead of trying to figure out all my problems, give them over to God.
I then proceeded to watch “War Room”, one of my favorite movies with Priscilla Shirer, who shows us how to fight the right way in prayer. There is no better feeling than knowing that you are on the right path, that fire, that excitement that burns in you. My question to you is, how do you keep it burning? How do you keep that fire alive? When the mundane tasks of everyday life begin to catch up to you, how do you break out of that cycle?
If you haven’t seen War Room, I highly suggest you watch it. Priscilla also has a book called “Fervent” that is pretty amazing if you are trying to bring some fire to your prayer routine. No matter what season of life you are going through right now, turn to the Big Man upstairs. Watch and be grateful for the things that come your way.
As always share some love, we could all use a little more love
