FIND YOUR FAITH

FINDING YOUR FAITH

In order to receive the blessings that were intended for you, you have to first believe that you deserve them and FORGIVE YOURSELF of the things you may have done long ago, or even last week!

SEEK FORGIVENESS from others you may have wronged.

 

TRUST that in the long run, things will work out in the way that God sees fit for you, even if that means losing some people you hold near and dear along the way, or getting blocked from an opportunity you were sure had your name on it. Trust what God blocks. 

When you begin to FIND YOUR FAITH, it’s impossible to still lead the life the way you did before. 

REMEMBER THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
