There's times in life where we find ourselves in positions we thought wouldn't happen so soon. It could be:
A new opportunity
A new job
A new relationship
You began to have a crush on someone
A break up
You let go of a friend
You lose a job
You buy a new car
Your car breaks down on you
You become homeless ....
The list can go on..
Life is full of twists and turns
Even good things will come and you feel it should not be because you get so used to things not going right.
When bad things come it kinda boost your faith in doubting your life because we live a life of expecting disappointment.
I find myself not desiring better because I feel better is unavailable for me. When things don't go as they seem, we tend to embrace brokenness. We tend to go towards the familiar of that brokenness. Brokenness is a lot of our comfort zones.
I found myself in a compromising position and I had to choose to have faith in what I truly desire. A desire is something you don't have yet and it's a strong drawing to what you want in life.
I am writing this to encourage you to embrace healing. When things don't go as they seem whether it's good or bad....
Accept the challenges of the bad. Embrace truth that you are going to make mistakes. Embrace that regardless of what was and what it seems that change is always possible. Staying in a sunken place because you fell into a place you genuinely don't want to be in is not the best place to be.
Embrace that you will manifest everything you desire. Do something different so you don't find yourself in a place that doesn't push you toward your desires. Be thankful for what you have accomplished and be thankful for what you haven't recieved yet.
What about if you have recieved something you feel you don't deserve?
Embrace grace and favor. God gives good things to His children. A lot of what we have gained wasn't deserved. But, if God says you can have it. Give him the glory and recieve it and expect more. Don't be afraid that this good gift is going to spoil or disappear because that's looking at it from that broken place. Recieve what God has for you. Be thankful, take care of it and be responsible with it. God gives more to those who take care of what they already have.
When things don't go as you think they should.... embrace the lesson or embrace the blessing, wait and nurture it.

Life has a way of showing how much we are not in control. We are human beings, flawed and imperfect. We make mistakes often. We judge too harshly and we judge too quickly. Sometimes, we judge too late. Due to our imperfections and shortcomings, we are going to hurt others. Based on your level of healing and maturity, you will hurt others either intentionally or unintentionally. Unintentionally hurting others is apart of life. That doesn't mean you are NOT healed or in your process. You just may have said something innocently and wind up triggering someone. Most unintentional pain happens even when you are healing. It comes from the words you use that are not so much focused on a particular person or the actions you take from a pure and/or protective place. That place may be for justice and righteousness, or even just for enjoyment and laughter. Intentional hurting of others is words, expression or action im which your focus is on the person you are acting towards or talking to
If someone asked you, "Do you think you are mature?" I can guarentee you the answer would be yes. I believe everyone believes they are mature. Saying you're mature and being mature is two different things. Maturity is all in your actions and reactions. In order to understand it, think of it as the natural aging process. Babies are immature because they need a lot of tending to even if they may not even realize they need it. In our non perfect world, we have it unnaturally as even some elderly individuals still behave as children. Below are some signs that will definitely reassure you that you are mature. ● You would rather talk things out than to lean to your own conclusions. ●You can admit when you are wrong verbally even if it hurts. ●You're opened to criticism. ●You understand correction is for your betterment even when it doesn't feel good. ●You are teachable ●You understand mistakes are going to be made, and there's always room for improvement. ●You a
There is a couple ways to truly grow in faith. I would like to share them with you my first point of growing in faith is: ●Hearing the gospel 1. Church is the perfect place to hear the gospel. The more you take in the more you put out. What you digest in words and sight, should be things that will draw you closer to God. Hearing about Christ will help you grow in understanding Him. 2. Reading the bible is the gospel. From Old to New Testament you hear about Christ. The Old Testament is full of foreshadows of Christ. I'll give you an example: In the Old Testament people would kill live animals and pour the blood of the animal over an altar as a sacrifice for God. The animal was innocent and had no fault in being killed but it took the place of humans needing to die because of their sinful ways. God is very serious about sin. You can find some of the animal sacrifices in the book of Numbers. The New Testament speaks of the death of Christ and His blood shedding for us even tho
