At the beginning of this year, I said this year would be a year of Spiritual Growth. I had no idea how powerful that statement was until recently. Not only has it been a year of Spiritual Growth for me, but I have also watched people around me grow as well. Not to mention, the people who have come to me to be coached for that exact reason. Learn about my upcoming workshop and what inspired it.
A war binder is an additional tool to have in your spiritual weapon arsenal and to utilize on a daily basis. It does not replace prayer nor does it replace the word of God. It is a tool that you can use to help you grow spiritually and to build a stronger relationship with God. Your relationship with God can never be too strong.
When I was a kid, I left the church and denounced Christianity as a whole. I took a little here and there from each religion. I was so angry at God because I couldn’t understand why he would allow the things that transpired over the course of my life. Even in childhood, there was a kid that told me to read the entire Bible for myself and I refused. I had already picked up my Bible and had no clue where it was nor was I planning on searching for it. I went from being Athiest (or so I thought) for a few years to being Agnostic (thanks to my cousin who pointed that out) up until my early 20s or so. Eventually, I started seeking again. I dove into Spirituality. I learned sooooo much and I saw so much.
*Before you get into this post, I want you to know that I have been sitting on this one for a while. It continuously pops up like an annoying sibling that won't go away when you are busy. So, here goes. Don't shoot the messenger. Take it up with God* I know this is going to be a hard one for some of you. But I want you to hear me out. I’m telling you this out of love. I’m telling you in hopes that it will make you stop and think about it. I want you to think about what I say because it needs to change but it cannot until you’re ready for it.
There are so many times when we go through storms. Many of us may have even experienced times when everything we touched crumbled. It may feel like the worst thing in the world. There are some who don’t even care. Believe me. I’ve watched people destroy things over and over and over. Just to move on to the next thing and destroy that too. It wouldn’t matter as much if they weren’t destroying other people’s things and lives. If you want to invite destruction into your life, keep it within your life, DO NOT bring it to others. Now, let’s not focus on those who don’t want to change. Let’s focus on those who want to receive the help they need to make changes in their lives. What do you do when everything you touch crumbles?
There are many of us who are Licensed To Carry our weapons. We wear them with a sense of protection. Some of us may even be quick to draw our weapons, only to make situations worse than what they should have been. Every situation does not warrant the use of violence. Every situation is not a threat. When most people think of people who carry their guns, they automatically assume we are gun-toting, violent tyrants with murder on our minds. When in truth, a lot of us just want to protect ourselves and our families. After all, when faced with a threat where action must be taken, it will all come down to the survivor being either the threat or us/our family. When it comes to me, the surviving party will always be me/my family.
They’re Waiting To Hear From You! Before I get started, I want you guys to know that these posts are my way of being helpful. These posts are what I…
