Don’t Quit.

“If you want to heal your hearts wounds, start healing your thoughts.” – Alexandra Vasiliu

I have had so many people say to me, “I just need to get away, yanno? Just get out of here for a bit. I just need a break!” This is the actual Truth of that statement: wherever you go, you take your mind with you.

Say I finally get the break Im so craving. I’m finally on a beach, soaking up the sun, and the only noise I hear is that of the waves crashing against the sand. That’s the secret to all my stresses and worries just melting away, right? Wrong! The reason that’s not the answer is because 9 times out of 10, I’m going to be sitting on that beach still dwelling on everything I “left at home”. The idea of escaping our reality for a bit is honestly detrimental because if our reality is in need of escaping from, then we aren’t truly living the way God intended for us to be living.

This is what Jesus said on the matter: ““Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.” (Matthew 11:28 TPT) JESUS IS YOUR OASIS.

Is it really that simple, though? Just turn it all off, hand it over to God and enjoy our lives? Absolutely. But as one minister said, “It’s our stinkin thinkin that limits us most.” It’s hard carrying a backpack full of life’s worries around and trying to run a marathon while we do it.

So, as challenging as it is, think positive today. Meditate on God’s Goodness and Promises. Don’t magnify the negative and the bad, but magnify God and His Word to be greater.

The best is yet to come, friends. Don’t quit.
