Lenten Season Life Lesson 3 | Standing on Pure Faith
Lenten Season Life Lesson
Faith is one the four cornerstones of my and many believers’ journey. And, even if you are not a believer there is some truth that you live by that gets you through each day of your life. When you face cancer. When a soldier faces a bullet. When we face the loss of a loved one or loss of loved ones. When you face a blood test. When you face a negative pap smear. When you face a urine test. When you face your fears. When you face your attacker. When you face the truth. When you one-day stand face-to-face with God, you will have completed all that you believe you have done well, by faith. A ‘faith-warrior’ will look at a challenge and figure a way to approach it.
- Recognize you cannot solve the reveal all at once: You see a large part of healing after a reveal is dissecting it piece by piece so that you are sure to cover all the angles.
- Get a hold of yourself before you allow your life as a believer to become a contradiction! Sadly many people try to live their life over once a fact about them has been revealed. They never seek God to find out whether or not the life they are living is the one they would be living if the knew the truth sooner.
- Expect triggers: The trouble with a reveal is largely due to memories, encounters, decisions, fears, facts, and more being to fill your brain relative to your past, present, and future. There are days when a sounds, smells, a touch, a picture will trigger or cause a response.
- Expect the unexpected: When we possess knew knowledge, it is hard to determine how we will react to additional information, or encounters that may stress us even more.
There are times, however, when moving forward paralyses us. We begin to over-analyze our past failures and destroy any remnant of hope for a future. Failure is not a part of God’s reality. A reveal allows you to let God, who is seeking to bless you, step in and add value from our pain to your life. Timothy reminds his listeners, 2 Timothy 2:7, that a spirit of timidity is not an inherited trait of God’s children. Therefore, any uneasy feelings you have about your present and future success can be erased. You erase your feelings of fear with a vision of yourself being successful, conquering your problems, and pushing your way through rather than falling victim under the weight of doubt. It is time to accept that pursuing your passion and purpose will drown out the cries of your inner child who fears the known. It is time to look in the mirror and say ‘Self…this is your life, now go out an live it!’
