How are you doing? We are in the full swing of summer -if you can believe it! As the months continue to pass by we are all waiting to see how things will pan out. It continues to be a time of uncertainty which brings fear and anxiety in different ways. While not knowing what to expect about the future brings discomfort, particularly with all that has been going on over the past couple of months, that discomfort does not have prevent us from taking the needed steps to move ahead-closer to our goals. We can still choose to take one day at a time and trust that God is with us and will provide in the ways that is needed. Doing so requires deliberate attention to the information we allow in our mind. Focusing or refocusing onto God’s word is a good way to work on our thought life, to help it to be positive.
Do you have goals that you have put to the side due to fear? I am working to push past my fears as it relates to developing my business. As an entrepreneur there is a lot of risk entailed with pursuing and growing a business. The uncertainty of how things will turn out is definitely scary but I am aiming to put one foot ahead of the other to make needed steps. I am also attempting to learn God’s will, particularly during this pandemic. The Bible says “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my way, ” declares the Lord (Isaiah 55:8) and “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6). I desire to allow God to lead me on the right paths so I need to take the time necessary to hear from Him on a daily level. Otherwise my thoughts are unclear and I can feel overwhelmed by the many life tasks in front of me.
