When the Going Gets Tough

Having perseverance is the furthest thing from easy. Of course you have many days where you’re feeling pumped and encouraged. Days where you feel unstoppable and ready to conquer the world! But then there are days where you feel physically defeated. You feel like giving up and throwing in the towel. How do you handle those low moments? Do you throw a pity party and wallow in your sadness? We are all going to have days where we don’t feel our best, the difference is how we handle and overcome them.

Communicating with God

“Then you will call on me and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”

Mastering Confidence

Confidence is not found in an outfit you put on. What happens after you undress? You are faced with the feelings you covered up in your nice clothes, beautiful make up, and vivacious hair.

Taking a Leap of Faith

It can definitely keep you shackled in your comfort zone causing you not to grow and flourish. We have to tackle fear. We can no longer push it under the rug and save it for later. Once we tackle fear we will live a limitless life.
The first thing you need to do when tackling fear is to realize who really is in control. GOD! Yes, He is in control of everything. Now that should take a load off, right? Well it should but a lot of times we like to feel like we’re in control of everything and we don’t give God the chance to be God. Even with knowing God is in control we still have fear of the unknown and if we don’t feel comfortable with not knowing, that’s when we try to step in and take control leading to major disappointment.
