332. When it Rains, it Pours

Be careful what you ask for. Don't ask God for a blessing then get mad because the blessing doesn't come in the package you expected. 

His ways are not our ways. If anything, ask for guidance, protection, strength, and wisdom. These are the things you will need along your journey.

Love you all.

331. Keep It Simple

Today my grandmother and aunt took me to our old stomping grounds on Galveston Island just to drive around and eat.

 The day was so beautiful, the waves of Gulf of Mexico sparkled in the sun. With fresh, cool winds hitting my face, I couldn't help but breathe in the life surrounding me.

It's amazing how simple things can bring a person joy.

329. Promise Over Pain

I heard it as clear as day. I know it was not a fluke, joke, or random thought because it was exactly what I needed. 

It was a word.

Over the past couple of days I've been anxious, uncomfortable, and overwhelmed with pain. 

That was until I heard clearly in my spirit: "Focus on the promise, not the pain."

What's the promise? The promise lines up with the word of God. The promise says I'm more than a conqueror. The promise says the Lord came to bring me life and life more abundantly. The promise says ask and it shall be given to me. 

But, instead of focusing on the promise, I've been putting my attention on the pain. My mind has been consumed with symptoms instead of success. 

I've learned that our minds can literally shape the way we live, think, and act. And I've also learned thay the area in which I give my energy is the place that will thrive the most.

From this point, I'm thriving. I'm choosing the promise over the pain. There's no way I should not be living the life I've always dreamt. It starts in the mind and it's up to me to follow through.

It's time to show the power of the mind.
