JODI WATKINS' LIFE, HEALTH, AND LEADERSHIP SHARED LEARNING COMMUNITY
I apologize for the sound for the song. I encourage you to look it up and listen for yourself. It is an amazing song! Lord, you are my refuge, my strength and my help in times of trouble. Even when I face difficult situations, I will not fear because you are with me. You cover me and protect me. You go before me to fight my battles - and you ALWAYS win. Nothing is impossible for you. No matter what I face today, I will place my hope in you. Amen. Please go to the group https://Christians.convenecommunities.com/group/show/852/905 to be more involved and for open discussion. All discussions are 100% anonymous. Today I pray that if you are in a valley and you're not sure how to get out of it, you look to the Lord. He is our salvation. He is the one we must learn to rely on. He is everything we have. Today and everyday, look to Him to get you through hard times. When we rely on ourselves, we receive anxiety, overwhelm, and depression. With Him, we receive all the blessings He has in store. He doesn't give us the roadmap because He needs to know we will choose to trust Him in the darkness. The more we practice, the better we get - just like anything else in our lives. It's not up to us to "figure it out." It's up to us to trust Him and know He has already won our battles for us. There is a reason I must practice this daily...if I don't, I WILL fall short. So I have to learn how to RECEIVE his words more and more each and every day. It's not going to be perfect. However, receiving His guidance is possible the longer we put forth the effort. In order to receive God's favor, we must do these things: 1) Abandon what we "thought" we knew 2) Accept that we are NOT in control 3) Be Accountable and faithful in our journey 4) Advocate for others who are struggling and who God has placed in our paths 5) Agonize and listen to the hurt of others. Listen to their pain and be their support system when they have none 6) Carry the Armor of God with you everywhere you go 7) Be Available when others need you and remember that God is using you for His glory! 8) Be Aware of your downfalls and weaknesses in order to work on them more. For this, I always say keep GOOD people around you who will help you point these things out. This is what I must do. 9) Have Authority knowing God is our redeemer and our Savior. He must pray without begging. We must know that God is for us and not against us. Thank you for being here. I pray you will come back.
