Lately, many people I know, including myself, have been faced with the things (& people!) that can take our energy & time if we let them. The minutes of the day are ticking by & we’re focused on the people who’ve ‘done us wrong’ or that thing that keeps us up at night. BUT WHY are we giving the power to these people or occurrences that shouldn’t have the power?
How much of our time & energy should we continue to direct to this?? àZERO. Take back your thoughts, your energy, the precious moments that are ticking by that you can’t get back. Focus on the gifts that time & energy present to us! Use these in a positive manner; work on your dreams, spend time with your family & friends, change your perspective to not giving away what God has given you to anything or anyone who doesn’t deserve it.
When you find yourself handing over these gifts, grab them back!! As 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 NKJV reminds us:
4For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ
So anything that directs us away from God, is taking us in the wrong direction. Our energy & time should be directed towards Him, peace, & grace.
Until next time.
