The fulfillment of finding true freedom in life. Have you obtained spiritual, physical, or financial freedom in your life? Are the key areas in your life replenishing themselves regularly? You do not have to tether yourself to the same worldly possessions that society leads you towards. True wealth is found in health and freedom.
Working to not carry your past trauma into your future should be a primary goal for anyone recovering from trauma. Fight to find your peace and protect it. Work to remove the discord between one’s spirit and one’s soul.
Do not give power to your fears. Faith and fear cannot exist in the same active space. Therefore if you claim to be a person of faith, then how can you dwell in your fears of negative outcomes. Do not fear the possibility of failed outcomes, but rather embrace the opportunities of getting one step closer to your successes.
Future of Faith and Feelings
What do you do when you reach a point in your life where things you have learned in your life are called into question by the events you have experienced? This brings true controversy into how we work to make change in our lives and where we pull our strength and support from. Know that God is not threatened by our greatness.
Final Words of Guidance
Learn from the failures in your life, but don’t dwell in them. Be careful what you give you energy to in life. Understand that every lesson in life, whether success or failure, is there to teach and remind you of where you do and do not want to be in life.
Once you have decided what you won’t do after a situation occurs, all of your energy has to go towards what you are willing to do to get to where you need to be. There is no purpose in ruminating on the dark aspects of your trauma.
Dwell in the fact that if God has brought you through the traumatic events in your life, He will do it again, and again, and again.
