It's Time For My #JustATouchof_J 's Weekly Affirmation? Let Me Teach You How To Sacrifice!
Hey Kings and Queens! :)
Good Day Everyone!
Are you out there shining bright like the diamond that you're?
Smile :) It looks great on you.
It's time for JustATouchof_J's Affirmation's on my JustATouchofJ Mobile App, Instagram's Facebook's, Tumblr, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Reddit, LinkedIn, and Blackvibes.com just to name a few! ;)
This weeks affirmation comes from:
(Proverbs 3:5-6) Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will direct your path.
So.. yall I've been fasting for the past 21 days :)
I didn't fast from food. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said that this fast was going to be all about me sacrificing 6 thing for God. Apparently I had to learn the difference between obedience and sacrifice. Go figure. :)
So here's the 6 things:
1.) My old ways of thinking for Gods plan.
2.) Fears.. returning to them.
3.) What I love above God.
4.) My control over every situation (aka my stubbornness). Do things afraid.
5.) Watching what I say and what I think about.
6.) Wait on God and trusting that he will renew my strength.
I must say that the scripture above helped me get through the those 21 days when my faith became a little weary! Lol! Let me be honest. My faith was really tested ALOT!!
First off I didn't know that at times I valued my plan above Gods. SMH.. Second I hated that I had to return to my fears and confront things I thought I was over! Omg, lol seriously yall!
During the 21 days I had to sacrifice things I loved to do. My need to control things, was shifted majorly and I it wasn't that easy. It also involved me paying close attention to the things that I thought about throughout my day as well. I really learned that your thoughts control everything. And last but not least I learned to trust God more. Through my obedience in my weakest moments I saw how He really restored my strength!
Consistency and Persistence was the key to the learning that the Sacrifice was my Obedience!
Trusting in the Lord with all my heart was first. Learning not to lean on my own understandings was the next. Lastly submitting to Him and relying on Him to direct my path taught me a lot!
That's all I want you to do this week. Remember your not perfect and the Lord doesn't wasn't you to be. He wants you to know that your sacrifice is your obedience. In order for you to get to the next level in your life... you must listen to him.
Let me teach you how to let go of your will for His.
