Are you living in the maybe?: Intertwining Your Faith with Everyday Life


Have you ever felt inadequate? You just felt like you didn't know enough, didn't have enough, and just wasn't enough. It's not just your mind playing tricks on you. It could be how you truly feel deep down inside. You know what's funny? It's likely that you're good at a lot of things, so why does this one thing throw you off your game?


What are you afraid of? Have you taken the time to examine yourself? Take the emotion out of the situation and look at the problem. 

 

Maybe you gained a little weight. 

Maybe you need to study more. 

Maybe you need to practice more.

Maybe you don't pronounce all your words correctly.

Maybe, maybe, and maybe. 

What's your maybe?

This list could go on forever.


Some maybes might be warranted, but there's a lot that aren't. So, if you're allowing the maybes to stop you, you might want to do a self-evaluation.


Do you trust God?

Do you think He wants you to fail? 

Do you truly believe that He loves you and that you love Him?


Combat these negative thoughts in your mind with God's word.


God's word says:


"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Psalm 139:14


For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7


 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13


Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24


These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33


Here are a few scriptures I speak over myself to encourage myself. It’s not always easy when you’re doing something you’ve never done before, but believe what Hebrews 13:5 says: “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”


By speaking these things…over time, I’ve been learning how to incorporate Christ into every area of my life.


Below are two books that God has inspired me to write. "The Flip Side" and "Blinded By Sight: The Heart Matters" both available now.


So… what’s this book about?


“The Flip Side” depicts the possible feelings and emotions of lesser-known Biblical characters as they navigated their lives in the shadows of the more popular characters in the Bible. While the Bible gives us snippets of their stories, we are usually left in the dark about their true motives, desires, and thoughts concerning the situations they are in. However, one certainty is that despite how little we know about these characters, they were often the catalysts to pivotal moments in the main characters’ lives.





So… what’s this book about?


Join me on a journey of self-discovery. “Blinded by Sight - The Heart Matters” is a compilation of short biblical devotions. These stories are not conclusive. They are depictions of how God is revealing my heart to me.

My prayer is, Lord, make it real for me, show me your heart, show me my heart, and give me the wisdom to change what hinders my relationship with you. I am learning that my perception is my biggest obstacle it affects my mind, what I think, and how I process my experiences. What I have experienced in my mind is expressed through my feelings and these experiences dictate my choices either consciously or subconsciously.

This devotional will allow you to explore and evaluate your past and present situations that have hindered you from seeing the heart of the matter. Simply put, look at the heart – it does matter. Your future depends on it!

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4
