Living your Best Life … Now!

A Life Well Lived!

We all have had challenges in our lives that have either broke us or made us. We have prepared for success and when we have arrived at our appointed destination we have been left wanting. What is it about us? Never feeling fulfilled and on to the next quest. Running a race that has disqualified us for life.

Stop! … Stop, you have raced through life and it is one big blur; not feeling, not touching, not even existing. You have just been going through the motions. Limited, lifeless, a ghost of what you once were.

‘Where art thou?,’… God called out to Adam  in Genesis 3:9 (KJV)

 Genesis 3:9

9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

‘Where art thou?,’ I’m calling out to you… When did you cease to exist? What happened to you that made you never want to live again? You have become the walking dead…dead to everything and everybody……..

You have hopelessly shut down and ‘WE NEED YOU!!!’

We, the world needs you,… your ideas, your hope, your love, and your breath of life that you have held in. Exhale baby, you complete our bouquet of life. You think life is not worth living because you’re not living. That’s the key! You, have to LIVE on purpose not haphazardly or even casually; that’s why Jesus died. Look at the following verse;

John 10:10

Amplified Bible (AMP)

The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

We all have challenges in life, but we decide whether they make us or break us. That’s right you decide it. You tell the situation what it is by your perception.

The thief in your life is bitterness, resentment, hatred and every negative emotion. Why do you have negative emotions? They are warning signals letting others know about your impending actions. Just because you feel something does not mean you act out on it. It’s just like your car signals. The right turning signal tells the other driver that you are turning right. When someone hurts you it is because they  have been hurt and it has nothing to do with you. Hurting you is just how they are responding to life, and you are a part of life. Hurting people just hurt others, it’s the only way they have been taught to communicate their pain. So, what do you do? Don’t take it personally be forewarned. Don’t get angry and run into your emotional tomb. Tell them, ‘look I know you are hurting and I get that. We can talk about it and maybe I can help you. If I cannot help then I’m not going to allow you to take it out on me.’ This is how you chose to be a ‘Victor’ instead of a ‘Victim.’

What you are calling a mountain is a mole hill to someone else because they see life as a glass half-full waiting to be filled. This makes them and their life gravitate toward their positive expectation which is filling their cup.The waiting for the cup to be filled is their hope which is their expectation of good coming to them. They see life’s challenges as opportunities for them to succeed and be a winner.

You however see the cup as half empty with a leak (your negativity) and it will soon be empty. You don’t actively look for the good in all that concerns you. How do you achieve this? Ask God! The following verse says that God is a God of all hope.

Romans 15:13

Amplified Bible (AMP)

13May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.

Now do you understand that when you take life so personal (things happening in your life to you) it is the fulfillment of  the first part of the above verse, John 10:10. The thief robbing you of your happiness. When life is taken personal it’s because someone has taught you to believe that the world revolves around you. Everything and everybody in life is for your personal enjoyment. People cannot make you happy. They don’t have that much power. Happiness is not a ‘given’ it is a ‘decision.’ Decide to be happy by surrounding yourself with positive influences; the greatest influence is God’s Word. Read below how the early Christians viewed their challenges in life:

 

Romans 5:1-5 (Amplified Bible)

 1THEREFORE, SINCE we are justified (acquitted, declared righteous, and given a right standing with God) through faith, let us [grasp the fact that we] have [the peace of reconciliation to hold and to enjoy] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).

    2Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God.

3Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance.

4And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character (approved faith and tried integrity). And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation.

5Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us.

You deserve to be happy in life right now…
