I need to do this more. When I ‘pray myself’ out of fear it tends to work. What does that look like? I talk to God out loud. I tell him I’m an overcomer. I remind myself (and him) that I think things through. I talk to him about how long we’ve been together (Jesus and I), sorting problems out and finding solutions. I remember all the times he’s sent me the right people and how he continues to. I remind myself that the ones who left used their time up. They were no longer of use, especially if they were in opposition to God’s plan.🙏 I remind myself of what he’s brought me through. I remind myself he’s never failed me. I talk out loud and tell myself I can. When your power rests in God, there is no such thing as failure. Sometimes you are redirected, and sometimes you fall, but you get back up. You make it. You find a way. There is success because with God all things are possible.
