A sudden mental download woke Mia at 4:00 am. A shift in her spirit instructed her to get out her feelings. Mia listened and wrote the words you are about to read.
Feelings rob your present moment. When I worry about tomorrow, I am anxious. When I worry about yesterday, I am depressed. But when I am accepting everything as it is in my present moment, I am at peace.
Feelings only describe our current experience not the best that is yet to come. Some of you may be wondering how could I make a statement like this because I don’t understand your situation, struggle, finances, or pain. How could WE believe the best is yet to come. GODS WORD DECLARES IT.
As it is written, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." - 1 Corinthians 2:9 NKJV
I believe this means good things have happened but even better things will happen in the future. Trust the process, enjoy the process, and stay on path even when it hurts…. the best is yet to come.
All feelings are caused by thoughts. And all thoughts produce a feeling. We have to be careful of our thoughts for our thoughts will become our lifestyle. Sometimes my worries are so constant that they get in the way of my ability to function and relax. I have tried to control my feelings and let me just say it is easier said than done. In fact, it seemed that my feelings were controlling me most of the time, until I surrendered them to God.
Here are three ways I surrender to God: A choice for all of us
1. Prayer - I bow down, tell God everything I am feeling, and why I believe I am feeling this way. It never fails that when I finish pouring my heart out to Him I either think of the perfect solution or the perfect solution finds me. Thank you, God.
2. Abide App - I listen to daily biblical meditations to renew my mind. We may not have control over the thoughts that randomly enter our minds but we have control over the thoughts we allow to stay.
3. Bible - I simply sit and read the word. The word of God reminds us of his promises and gives us strategy. I believe choosing to read the word instead of focusing on my feelings is a powerful gesture on its own.
Feelings come and go but we can't allow them to be our distractions. My spirit consistently reminds me to hold on, don’t give up, God is going to blow my mind and make it worth my time. Through all the feelings I have been through I am confident that it is all apart of the plan and the best is yet to come.
