Guest Post by Heart and Soul Health Coach Mike Fenton
Each day is an opportunity to move forward, to move back, or to stay right where you are. One of the things that can determine whether you decide to move in any direction at all is your perception of the successes you experience in life. If you feel as though you are being successful your tendency will be to keep moving forward, to climb higher mountains.
But what about when you are not moving forward and you are either moving back or staying right where you are? Circumstance can sometimes play a part in where you are and where you are going, but more often than not it is just an excuse because victory can be found in almost anything. Asking for and receiving forgiveness for the sins you have committed in the past is a victory which can be had anywhere, anytime! Isn’t that enough to make you feel comfortable enough to move ahead?
Are you putting too much emphasis on waiting for “earth shattering” results, while not spending enough time celebrating your small victories? By Living Out Victories Everyday you acknowledge even the smallest successes, which in turn helps you to feel as though you are moving forward.
However, Satan does not want you to acknowledge those accomplishments, he wants you listen to his lies. He wants to keep you weak because he knows that when you are in Total Wellness you no longer listen to his lies and you will continue to win your battles against him. You will then continue to spread God’s word and you become the Christian God wants you to be and the Christian the church needs you to be.
“With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.” Psalm 60:12. In Living Out Victories Everyday we experience a feeling of getting closer to God and our goals. Our victory does not have to be large, it only needs to be acknowledged by us. There is not a day that goes by that we cannot find something we are victorious over.
Living Out Victories Everyday helps bring our mind and our spirit into Total Wellness. You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” Deuteronomy 8:17.
Do not let a day end without finding a victory (no matter how large or how small), one that you can acknowledge and be thankful for, because it is in those victories you will then move forward.
