“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”–Buddha
When you can focus your mind on the positive outcome of life. Then you have mastered the power of change! Don’t worry about the how-to focus that which you desire is already here. Feel it, see it in your mind’s eye and know that feeling. The how will come!
If anyone ever told me how strong a fight the enemy would put upon me. I might not have come to the battle. If you’re like me, the enemy can get a stronghold in your mind. Place the most terrible thoughts in your head. Sadly to the point of exhausting you from the fight in mind.
Keeping in faith seems like a futile task. You want to give up! What I do in these moments and believe me I get there. My thoughts yesterday had me crying so hard I had to stop the car. Beat the steering wheel screaming get out of my head. Have you ever found yourself in a bad place? We all have so you’re not alone.
This all occurred for me after sitting through two church services. You would think that I would have been on top of the world. Yet the enemy got in my head hard. I loved what the pastor preached, but I struggled to stay present at the moment. It got worse on the drive home.
Someone that is helping me out right now and that I love very much for doing so. Was working me in a terrible place. The Pastor’s words were most welcome. At Church, our Life Groups were meeting in the evening.
I made myself attend the life group. People I don’t know since I am new to the area having only just moved at the first of this month back to West Texas.
The life group is made up of beautiful people from my new church home. As we had dinner together, I began to ask questions about faith and dark moments. Trials that the enemy puts before us. Sharp is the dark place the enemy will get your mind.
As these beautiful people spoke to me, I did find peace after a day of battle in my mind. Because you seek peace with the lord, the enemy will pull out all the stops to convince you that you’re not worthy. I learned that God already has placed goodness and peace in my heart. I merely need to accept it.
What’s difficult to understand for most of us I think. It’s tough to comprehend that you just have to believe. Our lives are conditioned to question everything. My prayer to God for you and myself. God, you have given your son so that I can be forgiven for all my sins. Your promise is a life of joy and abundance. I pray for anyone reading this, and myself that you give us the wisdom and strength in your word to overcome anything the enemy throws at us. That we are active in the Lord and the POWER OF HIS MIGHT! We pray this prayer together in Jesus Holy Name. Thank you for this blessing!
The real point here is even when you think you lost, find some way to muster the strength to keep going. Help is around the corner so don’t stop. I didn’t and noticed a feeling of peace that I could hold onto. Peace is yours, I promise you will find it if you keep moving forward with God.
