Don't Be Discouraged










Outfit Details:

Hello All,
Recently, I've been feeling a little low in my spirit. Due to recent events in both the world and my personal life. However, I cannot allow these things to prevent me from being great and pursuing my purpose. 

Therefore,  I want to leave you with an inspirational message.  I feel as though I owe to you all, as well as to myself.

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you."

- Philippians 4:8-9

Life is hard; full of disappointments, heart breaks and aches, mind boggling decisions, and tragedy.  However, if we continue to focus on the negatives of life, we will never be able to enjoy it. As the scripture clearly states that if we focus on the good in life, then we will have the peace we need to carry on. 

If I told you all that I didn't need to hear this myself, then I would be lying to you. I really needed to hear this! 

For those who don't know, I plan out everything basically. Therefore, the smallest delay in my plans for life really disturbs my soul and causes me stress. However, God is too good to me to allow minor setbacks to prevent me from continuing to be great. 

Remember God's timing is not our timing. God's thoughts are not our thoughts. No doesn't always mean not ever, sometimes it means not now. God see's the long term affect of our decisions, and is only trying to guide us down the path he has set for us. 

2017 is supposed to be a year of prosperity! Focus on the negatives and allowing disappointments to block us from pressing forward towards are goals is a major NO! Focus on the good, the positive, the simple blessings that God has graced us with. Focus on this, and continue to move forward in God. I cannot stress this enough. 

You can do anything you set your mind and heart to. Just take it up with God, and if it's for you, then it will be for you.

Talk to you soon,
-Mikey :]
