Today I want to remind you to be awesome! Let go of your past. Everyone makes mistakes, or as the Bible says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Good news is, you don’t have to stay down. Repent, ask God to forgive you and He will. Then forgive yourself and move forward. Do not allow your sin to hold you captive. One of the best examples of this can be seen through David, who we’ve come to know as a man after God’s own heart. David was nowhere near perfect. He made many mistakes in his life, he was a murderer, he was adulterer just to name a few but no matter what he did he always went back to God. Let David be an example to us all of what it means to be someone after God’s own heart.
What does it mean to be someone after God’s own heart? It means you have a relationship with God. When you have a relationship with someone, you spend time with them. You talk to them. You listen to them. You trust them. You do right by them. This is the type of heart we should have for our Heavenly Father. In addition to all of the above, “God is spirit, so we must worship Him in spirit and truth”(John 4:24 KJV). You cannot worship God fully in spirit and in truth if you are still holding on to past mistakes. Not only can you not worship freely, you cannot live freely. This is called bondage and satan wants to keep you in bondage. He wants your mind to be held captive to your faults. He wants to keep you in a dark place in life, because he knows that when you see the light you will be able to walk in the full purpose and destiny in which God has for your life. When you walk in the light you are then able to be the man or woman who God created you to be.
Know your enemy. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy and he is going to do that be any means necessary. Do not allow him to beat you up with condemnation. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. You might feel convicted, which you should because that just means the Holy Spirit is living inside of you. But you should never feel condemned. Stand up and take your rightful place in the Kingdom of God. Let go of those mistakes, free yourself from bondage and be the awesome person that you were created to be!
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 KJV
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24 KJV

The environment you are in can and will have a tremendous impact on the course of your life. If you are around people who make it a point to strive for success, nine times out of ten you will do the same. Likewise, if you are in an environment of failure and excuses odds are you’re bound to be trapped in the same net. You have the power however, to change this. Do not allow your environment to define you in any way, shape or form. Do not let what you think to be inadequacies or faults hold you back from seeking your full potential. Do not be a product of your environment, break the cycle. I speak this over your life right now and say YOU are an overcomer! What does it mean to overcome? To be victorious. To conquer. To defeat. To prevail over. Yes, that’s YOU!
In addition, it is essential that you have high expectations. Expect good. If you look around no matter what your surroundings are, it can hard to find a whole lot of good, but your hope and expectation should be in the things of God. God is your source, not the things of this world. He is your peace. Your happiness should be found in Him. Although you live in this dark world, you are not of this world. Expect greatness. Expect happiness. No matter what is going on in your life personally, rejoice in knowing that trouble don’t last always. If you are in an atmosphere of failure, remove yourself. Silence all excuses and seek goodness from within that will give you the grace and sufficiency to move forward in exuberance each and every day. Choose to have tenacity. Choose to act responsibly. Choose to make the best of things that you have no control over. Choose to persevere. Remember, you’re an overcomer. Therefore, failure is not an option. ~letstalkaboutlife365.com~

Something that God has placed heavily on my heart over the past few days has been character. The character of a person is the foundation of who you are. Now and days it seems as though people’s actions are motivated by all the wrong things. If you take a moment and reflect upon the root of who you really are deep down inside, you will be able to learn a lot more about your character. Character cannot be put on every day like a pair of shoes. Character is who you are when you’re all alone and no one else is looking. Let me just say, I am in no way suggesting that you allow people to treat you any kind of way. My point here is to say never let anyone take you out of your character. Don’t let your actions be based on the attitude or behavior of others. I hope and pray you’ll receive what I have to say and apply it to your life. Thank you again for all the support! God Bless you all!
