I won’t let the threats of what man can do dictate the steps I take in life. I won’t limit my journey or hide in fear. I won’t walk around with shoulders hunched and eyes heavy. My life isn’t centered around what man or woman can do for or to me, but rather serving and loving You Father. Humbly I praise You. Amen.
Your stress and depression are oftentimes tied to other human beings. They are tied to things that won’t carry-over with you into your next level of existence. Your bills, roller coaster love life, insufficient paycheck, overdrawn bank account, disconnected family, balloon mortgage payment that you fear bursting, low credit score, fair weather friends—all of these things are human-based.
Our fears of failure are tied to our humanness.
God provides us with solutions that many times we overlook because we’re looking through a clouded lens, motivated by fear or even arrogance (thinking that we can figure it out by ourselves). Man and woman have limits. God doesn’t.
Trust in God and then watch as your lens becomes crystal clear.
