Never Have I Felt So Alive
I got this hoodie recently and it describes perfectly the season of life God has me in right now. (How fitting.) This past year, with God’s grace, love, and support I have been able to get through some of the toughest times. With Him, bringing people in my life who should be here and opening my eyes to the ones who shouldn’t. Feeling alive to me is feeling free with Him. Free from fear. Free from judgments. Free from those who lie to you. Free from worry. Feeling alive because He is someone who will love unconditionally. You don’t need to prove yourself to anyone. All you need to be is you.
I don’t have all the answers for you on how to solve all your problems. No one does. Only Jesus knows the plans for your life. What I do have is my testimony. My life is a testimony because I choose to not let the things that happen to me bring me down. I have allowed God to use me therefore I refuse to stay down when I am knocked down.
People are constantly asking me how to hear God’s voice and the thing about it is, you are probably hearing it more than you know. The holy spirit is your leader. When you have that “gut feeling” that is the holy spirit discerning, “hey something isn’t right here or something feels wrong.” We just choose to never listen to that. The enemy grabs a hold of us and uses our weakness to control us. The closer I get in my walk with The Lord the more and more I feel the holy spirit guiding and leading me. It’s always my choice though whether or not I choose to listen and follow. Let me tell you what, when I don’t listen it typically doesn’t end at all like I would have liked it too.
I wanted to share with you this short message in hopes to just encourage you today that no matter where you are on your journey in this life God has you. Don’t fear pain, because it will happen. Don’t fear period. Over half of what we worry and fear about anyways never even happens. Don’t let the enemy rob you of your joy.
It is time for you to feel alive and free.
