New year resolutions

 

Every year we all make new years resolutions, we vow to go to the gym more, eat right, make more money, do the things we should be doing already but didn’t.

 

Us gym rats know that the gym is packed the first month of the year but by the last week in January not so much and by the second week in February it’s just us die hards in there again.

 

So why do we do that to ourselves? Why do we make these resolutions only to break them and then make ourselves feel bad?

 

Three years ago I decided I wasn’t going to make anymore resolutions, I was going to make life resolutions, to do something to change who I was as a person inside.

 

2014 Let go and let God:

 

This meant I couldn’t control everything,

I couldn’t figure out all of my problems, if I wanted to change my life I had to let go of control and give it to God. God kept giving me messages but I thought I knew better.

 

All year long God has been knocking, he’s been telling you to follow him but you done what you wanted  to do where did it get you? So I decided to let go and let God.

 

2015 Pray and let God worry:

 

I remember stressing so much I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep, my hair was falling out, I even thought I was having a heart attack at one point. I couldn’t go on believing in God and keep stressing, it didn’t make sense, did I believe or not? Do I have faith or not? So I chose to pray and let God worry, that was the  best decision I ever made.

 

This year’s life resolution is

2016 Be present in my purpose:

 

I know I am here for a purpose, I know God gave me this gift of writing and to be able to touch others with my words and so this year I will be present in that purpose and know that this is where I am supposed to be.

 

My bible verse has always been: Romans 8 .28

God causes everything to happen for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

 

This year I fully intend to be present in this verse and my life.

 

The new year started with my Bishop saying that God is giving us back what was taken from us from the last 7 years…. That this year will be our start of incredible increase if we believe…

The scripture he gave was

 

Gen 12.1

Leave your native country your relatives and go to the land I will show you and I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you and make you famous and I will curse theses who treat you with contempt  all the families on earth will be blessed!

 

But you cannot get all of this if you still will not let go, if you still do not have faith…it’s all on you, can you get out of your own way to make things happen?

 

These are the 7 most destructive behavior you do to yourself.

 

1- Pride

2-Living in the flesh rather than being lead by the holy spirit

3-Procrastination

4-Gossip

5-Unforgivness

6-Jealousy

7-Want to be served instead of serving

 

Once we let go of these things, once we let go of control, once we learn faith and we pray and let God worry, once we are present in our purpose everything we ever wanted, everything we ever lost, was stolen from us, will be returned in abundance.

 

So today my friends, I tell you that this is your year, you are the only one to change the things in your life, if you truly want them to change you have to do the work and believe me sometimes it’s not easy, you don’t want to give up control, how can you not worry? How can I believe when crap is hitting the fan all around me? It is all up to you…I am no different than you…if I can do it then you can too.

 

Make your life resolutions today…

 

“Be the change you want to see”

 

“And just when the caterpillar thought his life was over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
