Ban Your Fears: How To Become Bigger Than Your Trials

Gratitude

A happy life begins with gratitude. Not just at Thanksgiving. In dark times we can prevail upon our Creator for mercy with repetec expression of thankfulness. Thankfulness can be reflected in how we greet each day. How we view our challenges however overwhelming as mole hills not mountains. A divorce or loss of a job can be in reality a prayer answered to find greater success and fulfillment.

“It’s been a rough year. I’ve gone through so many disappointments. I’ve lost a lot of good things.” Read more

Why not be grateful for what you have? Quit looking at what’s wrong and start thanking God for what’s right. Get up each day expecting God’s favor.

This could be the day you get your miracle. The day you meet the person of your dreams. The day your child returns home. That’s how you stay enthusiastic, even in tough time: You stay filled with hope.

“What if I do all that and nothing happens?” I hear you saying. “I’ll go to bed all discouraged, another disappointment.”

No, you can go to bed saying, God, even though it didn’t happen today, I’m still believing for good things in my life, knowing that I’m one day closer to a breakthrough.

Friend, no matter what you’ve been through, no matter whose fault it was, no matter how impossible your situation may look, the good news is that God wants to turn it around and restore what has been stolen from you. Most of all, He wants to restore your relationship with Him. Read more

God doesn’t want you simply to feel a little better for a few days. No, God is in the long-term restoration business. He doesn’t want you simply to survive that marriage. He wants to turn it around and restore to you a strong, healthy relationship. God doesn’t want your business to merely make it through the murky economic waters. He wants your business to excel!

Start expecting things to change in your favor. It’s your faith that activates the power of God. Remember, if you obey God and are willing to trust Him, you will have the best this life has to offer — and more. You can start living your best life now.
