You can’t control who will walk into your life, or who will walk away out of it.
You can’t control whether or not you will be stuck in traffic on your commute home.
You can’t control how people will treat you.
You can’t control your past and all of the baggage that comes along with it.
You can’t control the many things that you wish to happen or the things you hope never will.
But there is one thing you DO control: your attitude and response to these things.
And in the end, it will be your response, not even the things themselves that will determine the outcome of your day, your life, your story.
You control whether or not you will trust God in the midst of hardship and trial.
You control whether or not you will step forward with courage or run away with fear.
You control whether or not you stand on the promises of God or fall at the lies of the devil.
You control whether or not you allow the words of people to tear you apart, or whether you will allow the words of God to build you up.
You control whether or not you will look at the giants in your life that seem too big to overcome or whether you will look at the God in your life that can overcome anything.
Today… forget about the things that you can’t control.
Forget the past that tries to keep your restrained from all God has called you to be and move forward…
Forget about the problem that seems so big and walk ahead fearlessly with God….
Forget about the people in your life that hurt you and hold you back and lean on the One who is with you and always has your back…
Forget about what lies behind you and press forward into the future God has prepared for you.
Trust the promises that God has made to you.
Lean on the strength that God daily provides for you.
Let go of all of your worries, your disappointments, and your fears.
You have a bright future ahead of you… and it begins today.
Never lose hope. God is with you! – Anna… ♥
“But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead” – Philippians 3:14
