Hey Gem! I’m Back & I Have to be Honest with You, It Was Not My Intention to Drop A New Blog Post So Soon. However, After My First Post I Have Been Craving to Write More.
This Blog is Giving Me A New Outlet & If It Resonates with Any of You then I’ve Done My Part. What I Want to Discuss With You Today is When To Allow Your Faith to Stand In the Gap For You.
What is “The Gap”? For Me, The Gap is Fear, Disappointment, Doubt & When I’m Unsure of Something. The Gap is that Space Between I Know I Should but I’m Not Sure If This’ll Work. Oftentimes, I Find Myself Having To Let Faith Take the Reigns & Make My Flesh Take A Backseat. I’ve Learned Over the Years that I’ve Allowed My Fears to Stop Me from Reaching My Goals. Fear Can Be A Heavy Burden to Carry Around. It Makes You Second Guess Yourself, Question People’s Motives, Doubt Your Abilities & Gives You So Many Other Negative Feelings. Fear is In Fact An Attack of the Enemy. Anytime You Allow Fear to Win, You’ve Allowed the Devil to Also Win. The Two Go Hand In Hand.
So What Actions Have I Taken to Stop Fear & Doubt In Its Track. First, I Am Aware Of My Thoughts & How I Process Things. Typically, I Have A Random Idea and Immediately I Start Thinking Of All the Ways It Won’t Work. I’ve Had to Train My Mind to Think Positive First & Never Negative. It Was A WHOLE Struggle but I Would Not Be Where I Am Today Had I Let Fear Overshadow My Faith. Secondly, I Had to Give My Faith the Opportunity & Space to Grow. I Had to Speak to My Faith Daily Which Consisted Of Me Saying Affirmations, Journaling, Getting In the Word Of God & Constantly Thinking Positive Thoughts. You Have to Feed Your Faith Just Like You Feed Fear. It’s Literally the Size Of A Mustard Seed but If You Water It Daily, It Will Grow. Lastly, I Had to Learn to Trust My Faith & My Own Intuition. You Have to Learn to Truly Believe In Your Ability to Achieve Greatness. Learning to Trust My Faith Was My Biggest Hurdle Because Trusting Your Faith Means to Put It Into the Atmosphere & Then Do the Work Necessary in the Background to Bring Your Ideas Into Fruition.
Life Has A Funny Way Of Turning Our Worlds Upside & If We Don’t Have Faith in Our Talents and Abilities, We Won’t Survive. Take Today for Instance, I’ve Been Feeling Some Type Of Way Lately in Regards to Other People’s Opinions & How They View Me Without Giving My Faith A Fighting Chance to Work for Me. Instead of Taking A Backseat and Standing Firm On What I Know to Be True, I Allowed Outside Thoughts to Cloud My Vision. But Because I Am Aware Of How I Process & Operate, I Woke Up this Morning and I Got In the Word, Listened to A Podcast & Blasted Fred Hammond. I Realized that I Haven’t Been Feeding My Faith. I Wasn’t Refueling My Faith Gas Tank to Keep Me Lifted at All Times. I Had to Correct My Thoughts. I Had to Speak Life Into My Right Now & My Future. Again Faith Without Work is Dead. If You Don’t Activate Your Faith It’s No Wonder that You Doubt Yourself. It Explains Why You’re Fearful Of Taking that Leap.
I Want to Encourage You Today to Feed Your Faith. Give Life to Your Faith & Stand On It Firmly Knowing that Without A Shadow Of A Doubt You & You Will Achieve Greatness. If Nothing Else, If Your Faith Needs A Little More Help Call On Jesus. That’s My Gem for Today. Until Next Time, Smooches 💎
