Treadmill Treats Monday Message
What kind of faith do you have?
I have realized that all I need in my life is my faith in God, as long as I have that, everything else will fall in place.
It took me along time to realize this, there were alot of mistakes, lots of crying and worrying, there were alot of dark times that made me see this clearly.
A lot of religious people scare off “regular” people who are trying to find their faith. They make it seem like you need to be perfect in order to find faith, in order to talk to God, to come to church.
So people think “Well I’m not perfect so this won’t work for me” and walk away. Steve Harvey always says “You will never be perfect, so quit trying!” And he’s right, its not about being perfect, its about trying to be the best you can be, that’s all.
Its about getting to the place where you can find peace and joy because you have found faith. You know no matter what storm you might go through, you will hold on to that faith and know it will be alright.
You will look at your bad times and think “What is the lesson I am suppose to be getting from this? or look at it as, this test will be for my testimony” It is then you will not lose hope.
When your business is not going as you would like it, when your salary gets cut, when you lose your job, when the storms are coming at you, you will stay calm in the storm because you know you have deep faith and you know God will provide for you.
Maybe your stressing over your kids, your love life or your family. You don’t know what to do and its tearing you up inside. Your losing sleep, your hair is falling out, your making yourself sick, I know because I was there…I did this…and guess what? It didn’t change a dam thing!
Some of you, you might be saying “Well she’s in a dream world, what, am I not going to worry? Yeah right, who’s going to pay my bills, she has lost her mind”
When its just the opposite,
I have my mind and it is clear.
I chose not to worry about things I cannot change, It is better to make myself sick? Worry, have stress? Are those things going to make it better?Pay my bills? Get me more money?
No, it won’t, but if I keep my faith, pray and know it will be okay, I might be in the same situation for now but I can feel peace, I am calm, I can hear God’s voice about what is to come next and I am more open to things I have never thought about before.
Sometimes life has a way of making you slow down and take a look around, to make you appreciate what you do have, it is all the way you look at things.
So today my friends, I am here to tell you that no matrer what will come at me, no matter how many times I fall down, I will keep up my New year’s resolution from a few years ago…to “Pray and let God worry”
Which is a wonderful quote from Martin Luther King. Each and every day I do just that.
Try it, it is amazing how it can change your life! Ask yourself what kind of faith do you have?
And sit quietly during the storm…knowing he has you.
“Be the change you want to see”
“And just when the caterpillar thought his life over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
