The beautiful thing about having a relationship with God, is that it’s between you and Him. No one can dictate how your relationship with Him is supposed to go. We are all unique individuals, so therefore our bond with our creator is going to be different. So that being said, what I have come to learn is that when God sets you up to do something or gives you vision and purpose in life, that also is between you and Him. It’s impossible for you to expect everyone to be on the same page and understand what He’s doing in your life, no matter how bad you may want them to. When you are obedient to God, some family, close friends and even church folk may think you are crazy. Some may even judge you or have some not so nice things to say. In spite of your connection to them, you must be willing to put their thoughts and feelings aside and trust in your Heavenly Father. Trust what He is doing in you and know that you are headed in the right direction. In order to reach your destination however, you must keep moving. A journey is not a journey once you stop moving. The Lord knows all things, and as you go from season to season allow Him to reveal the plans He has for your life. Once He does, do not allow anyone to stop you from accomplishing just that.
If you have been struggling with being in the will of God and doing what you know you have been called to do, I encourage you to do a thorough examination of your present situation. You must first make up in your mind that you are willing and ready to do whatever it takes. A lot of times people come to a stumbling block where they are forced to make decisions they aren’t ready to make or don’t want to make. Make a decision. It’s easy to say what you are not going to do, but you must decide what you are going to do. Once you do that, then rid your thoughts of the negative talk of other people around you. If you have to, keep some things to yourself. Let your actions do the talking for you. People are going to talk regardless, you just can’t let it stop you.
God is doing some stuff in your life right now. Stuff that you don’t understand. Stuff that you don’t like. Stuff that even hurts you to your heart. My brothers and sisters in Christ, I am here to tell you it’s ok. All of the “stuff” you are going through is working together for your good and for God’s glory. Seasons change, people change but the word of God stays the same. No matter how bad it hurts, remember it is all apart of life’s journey. Bottom line, don’t expect everyone to understand your journey, especially if they’ve never had to walk your path. You must be like King David and keep looking to the hills from whence cometh your help, because your help does not come from man, it comes from God. Remember, there is no turning back on your life’s journey, just make new paths to follow instead. #iDeclare #LifesJourney
Father God I thank you for the journey you have set before me. Help me to understand that what goes on between the two of us, may not be understood by other people. Regardless of what anyone has to say, I decree and declare that I will be focused and determined to do just what you would have me to do, no matter how crazy it may seem. I will not turn back. I will run my race and finish my course. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Romans 8:37-39 KJV “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Psalms 121:1-2 KJV “I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from where comes my help. My help comes from the LORD, which made heaven and earth”
