“I Am Important To God!!!”
That’s what I sometimes have to scream to myself on the inside.
The mind is a powerful thing. To be clear the subconscious mind can be lethal without you even being aware of it.
of or concerning the part of the mind
of which one is not fully aware but which influences ones
actions or feelings.
I was thinking to myself the other morning about dreams and aspirations. And for some reason I couldn’t think of anything I wanted to achieve. That wasn’t so surprising.
See, my husband had asked me that question some time ago, and I couldn’t answer it then either, but on that particular morning I just couldn’t shake it.
I mean think about it. I’m a human being, I live on this earth, and not to mention, our flesh is naturally designed to want things.
So what in the world was wrong with me? I had to ask.
Why do I seem content with fading in the background?
Why don’t I have any desires?
Why am I not aspiring for more?
As I laid on my bed it came to me what it was.
“I Wasn’t Going To Live Long.”
Whoa!!!! I had totally forgot about that.
See, when I was younger, maybe around 18 years of age, I developed
this belief–that was planted by the enemy–that I wouldn’t live past the age of 25.
So the only thing I was planning to do was to die at 25.
I certainly didn’t plan on having my own family because there was no need to.
I realize I didn’t plan for anything.
But I made it.
And every year after 25 I would think, yes I made it to see another year.
By the age of 30 I still was holding on to that same belief, but by the age of 35 I totally forgot about it.
I was now married and we had a beautiful little boy.
But the thing was, the subconscious part of my mind was acting like a loop and it was still feeding me that same LIE!
So even though I thought that belief was long gone; my actions were saying differently, I was still living in that untruth.
I had to come to the realization that I wasn’t living life because I thought I had no life to live
“Recovery and Restoration Time“
Studies show that it’s hard to combat the subconscious mind.
But I say……………..
The Word of God also says…
Let me ask you something…
And I write all this to ask:
Do you live or act in a manner that you don’t understand?
Do you think you do certain things just because that’s who you are?
Do you feel there’s more for you, but can’t seem to step off the launching pad of life?
And/or are you someone who feels like God has given you a whole lot of ideas, but for some reason you’ve never been able to execute the plan?
Well, open the eyes of your heart and let God speak the truth, because maybe you are just under a subconscious attack.
Here’s To Your Spiritual Health!!!
