Forgiveness: If you cannot first forgive yourself then you cannot truly forgive others—(Do not just forgive but forget.)
Trust God. It is a relational building process you grow (which will take time) coming to understand God ‘one rung at a time’ as you walk through your life and circumstances.
Respect the process of God. Life, after Christ, is not what you are doing through God it is what He is trying to accomplish through you so your purpose can be realized. Remember: He is God and you are not. Step down off the throne.
Learn to love yourself. If you do not love yourself then why do you think that others will love you? Being continually downtrodden within your own mind can cause defeatism in facets of your life that will trickle down to those around you….especially children.
‘Clean hands’ before God. If you have anything against any man repent to God for it and try and settle this with the individual. Your heart before the Lord needs a daily cleansing.
Attitude is crucial.
Words you speak—the enemy will use your own words against you, so be careful.
Do not point fingers.
Do not ever run from confrontation. Stand firm for God is for you.
Have “Bull dog” faith—grab God with your teeth and never let go.
Stop focusing on others, what they have, what they are doing, and where they are going. Stay focused on yourself and what God is trying to do through you—angst will stop the flow of the Holy Spirit. Do not grieve Him.
Thank God continually.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend,
