But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
Galatians 5:16 NASB
I don’t want to disappoint You Father. I’m trying to think before I speak, think positively, and force out the negative thoughts that try to influence my decisions. If I focus on You, then only good can come from me. I pray to be steadfast. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
It’s impossible to know all of the things that God has planned for you. It’s limitless. Your mind can’t even fully comprehend limitless because even the visualization has a stopping point. I truly believe that’s the reason many of us fall short of experiencing what God is offering, because we have placed mental boundaries around ourselves and throughout our interaction with others. We limit our potential in our personal, educational, professional, and spiritual walks.
There’s more ocean than land, yet we’re fixated on the land. The ocean escapes us; it’s filled with mysteries and unknowns that we will never fully discover. One of the beauties of the ocean is it’s freedom. What if we aspired to be more like those rolling waves—not trying to resist, fight, or hold back—just be.
