It’s testing time. Do you have faith? Do you believe that even though things look bleak that you could still overcome your battle?
I had a revelation the other day while thinking about why Jesus spoke in parables. It’s because the message isn’t for everyone and it’s not for those that don’t believe.
As I pondered the media and the circulating information, I wondered how anyone could know what is the truth and what is a lie. I have made my stance on what I believe but every once and a while I question things. I try and put myself in the shoes of those with opposing viewpoints and find myself in need of reassurance and direction going forward. I always search the scriptures and although that can be a tricky thing to understand also, with prayer this is what I came to this morning.
-my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.- Hosea 4:6
But for those that want to learn and have knowledge and wisdom Jesus said this:
-Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you- Matthew 7:7
RESET Roundup 2021.
This summer was all about RESETTING. For me that meant getting back to the basics, cleansing and realigning myself with God and nature. I spent a lot of time in reflection and in prayer. I spent a lot of my time with the good book and this is what I know now…..
This is something that I have always struggled with. It’s a battle in my mind because on one side of things resting is an obvious necessity but on the other hand, it is a God-given rule. Hebrews 4:11″ Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter rest, so that no one will perishably following their example of disobedience”. I have been pondering over this more than usual, mostly because I have found myself in forced rest again for the 4th year of accidents. It’s really starting to make me wonder if I’m missing the point. What does rest look like really? In some ways, I could give examples of this when it comes to
This would be a great time for you to help me out with this in the comments. I will think more on this throughout the week and add to it maybe there are others out there that struggle with this also.
I know it might be a little redundant to have just another person give their opinion about what’s going on in the world today but I thought I’d share a few thoughts as I’ve been reflecting also on all the things in life and those things that seem to challenge me. As I have watched many of the reactions of others and including my own, one thing I’ve noticed the most is that what we say and do has an impact in some way each and every day. It’s one thing to experience the truth of that in your own life but it’s another to see how much what you accept or do not accept affects others. We all get fed somewhere from someone. There is nothing truly new really. Maybe reinsured, recycled or repeated but never “new”. This holds true across all playing fields also and if you really look at your own life there is a series of patterns that will create similar results until you try something else, not new but perhaps someone else’s point of view. Now, here is the part that I challenged myself and I’m challenging you with… Where do your thoughts come from? Where are you seeking advice and opinion? And does it bring you hope, peace, and love? Or does it cast doubt on you, on your ideas, on your hopes and dreams? This is a very important question to ask because the greatness in this world was not built on doubt, fear or hopelessness. If you have voices, including news, school, teachers, peers, or parents casting doubt or fear on you, get out. Find teachers, people, pastors and leaders that will encourage you, help you problem-solve and give you hope. Pray daily for wisdom to know the difference and never give up. Knowing what the subtle seeds being planted in your life is the defence you need to succeed. You need to become aware of the temptation to follow the call of doubt. Doubt leads to excuses ad excuses lead to procrastination and procrastination leads to an unfulfilled life.
The truth is that this 2020 happenstance has been a huge blessing to many people. I have talked to countless people that were ready to shift when things hit hard in 2020 and because they were willing to listen to the signs, they were prayerful and ready to move when they had to God blessed them. There is no circumstance to big that can not be over come. Your mindset and what you allow in it is up to you. If you struggle with fear or worry find out the root or where it’s coming from and cut it off. That is nothing more than a snake in your garden trying to steal your dreams. Staying home isn’t a sentence it’s an opportunity to get stuff done and to be prepared for what’s next…. and what’s next is going to be better than you’ve seen it for those who are diligent and faithful in the hard times, I know it.
Getting ready to launch the Reset 90 Happy Healthy Days for the new year here and Just wanted to give you a quick update as I’ve been working on my new website here. I haven’t had a ton of time to give you the day by day updates with my recent move to Revelstoke and just catching up in gerenal. There is so much I want to share with you and that’s why I really felt I needed to change up the website and start adding more of what I’ve been learning in the last couple of years. I want to keep it real and current with you. I’m hoping to be able to bring more to the table in terms of content, education and experiences. God willing, I will be able to find some new team members here soon to help out as I grow my site and content. Sorry if you find some odd things on the site, I am working on it so if you find an error or something that just isn’t quite right please let me know. I truly appreciate all of you. Also, if there is a topic you’d like me to touch on, please feel free to let me know.
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas if I am not able to update until after that I want to remind you of the true meaning of Christmas… Christ came to save the world from what it could not do on its own. We are in times that remind of us how true that really is. We need God and we need to remember how much He loves us, so please don’t take CHRIST out of Christmas. Be thankful and prayerful this season and always expect God to bless those who love Him. He loves you and wants you to know His greatness if you don’t already know. I’m praying a blessing and a true God experience over all who read this. May He bring peace to your soul and home over the holidays.
