Faith or Fear
Since President Trump has come into office, there’s allot of fear in the air of how our lives going to be while under his presidency. I’ve seen our social media people questioning why God would allow this to happen and begin to question their faith in a higher power. What we need to do is stop asking why this happened and instead as what am I supposed to learn from this because everything is a learning lesson. One lesson that can be learn is that God want you to grow closer to him and what’s the best way when you are under stress.. These next four years is to spiritually grow closer to god but also put the actual WORK in your FAITH.
You are taught that God is the highest power. God orders our steps, and God makes no mistakes. If you believe that to be true, this is no mistake. God wants to BELIEVE that your steps are ordered by him and you and God are CO-CREATORS of your life. The fear you currently have regarding President Trump means that your faith in God ordering your steps are gone and you have given your power of how your life will turn out to President Trump. I ask that starting today you take your power back and begin being a CREATOR of the outcome of your life instead of ALLOWING yourself to be a VICTIM.
So what are you going to do? Are you going to be a participator or a spectator? There is no such thing as luck. Success comes from actually putting in work. Your life is not a dress rehearsal, it's the real thing. Determine what you want to accomplish. Create an Action plan and execute it. Get rid of the naysayers and toxic people in your life...and SURROUND yourself with positive people who believe in you. Surround yourself with people who inspire you to achieve SUCCESS. Never give up and as always keep elevating and empowering yourself.
Peace and Blessings to You
