Set Backs

2020 has set me back in life a bit. How about you? The isolation, the heartache, the fighting, disagreements, trials, all of it, has taken a toll on our mental health on all of us as well as the physical on some of us. I am sure you all get it and I don’t need to get into the details. Old habits die hard and I am a sinner. That does not mean I am no longer a child of God. That does not mean I am not forgiven. We all fail, we just need to get back up. I have learned what I did wrong and now know what to do when things get hard instead of falling back into old ways. We win by losing.

Luke 17:3-4

3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

That being said I have put in place a plan for a better 2021 and am coming back stronger than before.

My 2021 plan and tools to get me to where I need to be to be the christian God has intended for me to be.

It has been my plan to get back to where I was for a few months now and praying and thinking about how I was going to do so. I woke up yesterday not really having a plan and then it hit me. I have been provided with all these tools to help me and then came up with the calendar idea and worked on it most of the day. My motivation is now on a next level. 

Living this way is much more enjoyable mentally and physically. Allowing God to have first place in your life is an amazing feeling that words can not describe. Rather than going through this world alone and feeling like you are on a roller coaster at times, or in a storm even, wouldn’t it be better to go through life with Jesus right beside you and riding that roller coaster with you. I am not saying you are never going to have trials or tribulations throughout your walk with Christ but it will be easier to overcome them while you depend and rest in him. He will hold you together, he will lift you up, he will keep you strong, he will not leave you, he will love you.

Isaiah 43:1-2

43 But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

2 Corinthians 4:8-9

8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

John 16:33

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

How do you plan to make 2021 better?!
