Finding Peace by Turning Away

Dearest Brothers & Sisters,

I hope this message finds you doing well today.  God has put a message on my heart to discuss today and that message is “finding the strength to turn away”.  Sometimes in life there is bad situations or even misguided people that can put us in the wrong place.  We often have a gut feeling that something is not right but we ignore that feeling and continue on down the wrong path.  Sometimes that path is taken because of peer pressure or because we don’t want to hurt someone else.  Whatever the reason, I want you to know that today God is saying:

“Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace and work to maintain it.”-Psalm 34:14

I ask you to take a look at your surroundings today.  Look, analyze and then realize that you have the CHOICE to change it.  You have the POWER to change it.  It may hurt someone’s feeling that you have to let go. You may be lonely for a season. You may wonder if you are doing the right thing but pray to God and ask him to search your heart and reveal the truth about where you should go.  God wants you to have a positive and abundant life. Sometimes we have to admit to ourselves the things we need to let go of that are holding us back.  Do not be afraid. He will cover you and take you to a better place.

Enjoy your day. Laugh, smile and share fun with the right people in the right situations.  Suddenly you will feel lighter…as if a weight you did not even know you were carrying was lifted.

Praying for you always…Until we speak again,
