Success is not

Success is not measured it’s experienced. No one really care about your possessions or position but you success is how you treat others and what impression you leave them in their hearts.

Are you successful or are you filled with pride of your accomplishments and titles.

I’m not saying you can’t acquire possession or obtain positions or even accomplishments but it is only success if you use it for uplifting life not to boast your personal elevation.

Waiting for an answer

This summer has been great and trying. Making major decisions in life can be a faith builder and a fear exposer. The Bible’s says many times when an angel shows up “fear not!” And scripture says that God has not given us a spirit of fear but truthfully we still become fearful.

I know that fear is a natural reaction to things you can control but I believe that God knew we would fear even though He didn’t give it to us He did give us “free choice,” and because of that we will experience many types of emotions and feelings. So I got that off my chest and now that I’ve recognized the symptoms of disbelief or doubts now we need to seek solutions.

So in the word God said that His plans for us is to prosper and be in good health. Well when we fear we are causing our physical and mental health to decline. Not necessarily to great sufferance but to some pain, agony and maybe depression. Those adjectives are decoys to what God has promised you and that is “yes and amen.” He will “never” withhold anything good from you. God’s word says we can have all things through Him who strengthens you. Hold on to His word and promises. Hold on and don’t let go. Fear has to flee.

As I started talk about my major decision I had and have to make I must believe that if they line up with his word and promises I am going to be great and satisfied beyond measure. His gift far exceeds my wants and needs.
