Power Thoughts: Grab Hold of Something New

A recent article called “How to Relieve Body Pain After Climbing a Mountain” states, “Sometimes hiking lovers are called robots because it seems that they don’t feel anything after long hiking hours. Truthfully, the reality is different. Burning calves, hurting knees, shaking legs… That’s the reality of a person who just got down after climbing a mountain. If you like mountain climbing, you may know how it feels when you return from your trip. The first thing you do is search for ways how to reduce your body pain. There are some really effective tips to get rid of body pain.”

Whenever climbing a mountain, most people want to stop when they hit an area of resistance. However, when we hang in there and do not give up, we build incredible strength and endurance from climbing them. Many mountains try to hold us back from where God is calling us to. One of the significant hindrances that keep us from moving forward is fear.  It seeks to keep us from reaching the highest mountain and to achieve our destiny, but we have to remind ourselves: His power can move any obstacles that stand in our way so that we can evaluate and excel in our life.


In reality, our belief system sometimes creates mountains like the beliefs of “I can’t” or the expectations that others portray onto us like “you’re not good enough.” In reality, God has given us everything we need to live in abundance and to have an “I can” attitude in life. Thoughts of doubt and negative doubtful people will cause you to lose focus and possibly stop you in your tracks, but always remember when this happens you have the power to take control of your life and create your destiny.

Although it’s difficult to stop holding ourselves to old beliefs, old religions, old thoughts, and old decisions, it’s essential to be open and receive the new things God is doing in our lives. If we continue to hold on to the past, we may never evolve into our future. It’s hard to forgive people of the things they try to do to us or have done to us, but we have to forgive and not allow these things to take root in our heart. The good news is Jesus is not expecting us to rely on our strength to forgive a person because that’s the hardest thing for a human to do. Therefore, we are to give it to Him and ask Him to help us to forgive. It’s a spiritual thing!


We all fall, but falling is not what we should continue to stay focused on if we plan to move forward to live a life full of purpose. So, the truth is without purpose, things feel meaningless. “Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living”- Anonymous.


What are you willing to let go?


Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14 {NIV}

We all want to grab hold of something new, i.e., relationships friendships, or a new career, but we may sabotage it by giving into a repetitive negative behavior pattern.  One relationship after another is not working out, emotional manipulation, playing the victim, withdrawing from others and criticizing. With these types of toxic emotions, we risk the effect of feeling, peace, hope or the joy Jesus has to offer us when we have the faith to believe in Him. When we act to deal with these types of bondage, we begin to find positive and healthy ways to step into something new, and that is the authentic you!


We learn from our imperfections, then we brush ourselves off and get back up again. It’s time to press reset, it’s time to complete the process, and it’s time to close the door to the past. It’s time to receive your healing, evolve and accelerate to the destiny, plan, and future that’s desperately waiting for you!
