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.

He always does. We are quick to think it’s too late for something good to happen. We write things off as they’ll never change. I’ll never get better, we believe. I’ll never do this or that. But deep within your conscious are the things you think you will never do, and they will happen to you. All you have to do is wait, hope a little, and not give up faith. It may take years, but you will feel yourself riding on that plane to go to that dreamed about destination. You will see yourself reaching that goal; whatever it may be, it’s possible. You will witness that you have done something you thought you never could. God has a way of pleasantly surprising us. So before you succumb to culture and the everyday thinking that life will never be more–keep in mind, God has a plan. It’s never too late.✨💫🔆💭🎆❇️🙏
