On this Gratitude:UnFiltered with Joshua T Berglan we STOP…
What do you do when you are feeling impulsive?
How do you react when you are faced with a high stakes dilemma?
One of the best decisions we can make is to STOP.
Take a time out..
Pray for guidance…
Or ask for guidance from people who are aligned with you spiritually..
Play out the possible outcomes… take the time to visualize what the possibilities are.
Most of us have good intentions or at least some kind of justification for the things we do. And yet so many of us seem surprised when we find ourselves a long way from the direction we want to go. – This happens to me when I act on impulse.. The big changes in our lives—both negative and positive—rarely happen without a series of decisions piling on top of each other like never-ending dominoes. Do you see how stopping can be beneficial? What can you stop in order to move you closer to God’s divine direction?
Are you doing anything that’s taking you in a direction you don’t want to go or that God doesn’t want you to go? What do you need to stop completely? An addiction to social media, alcohol, porn, approval, or work? An unhealthy relationship? A judgmental attitude? What can you stop in order to move you closer to God’s divine direction? Treat each choice like it’s the next stepping-stone toward your destination. When a behavior or relationship takes us in a direction we know is moving farther away from the story we want to tell, we need to pause not only to consider the consequences but also to choose to stop traveling in the wrong direction.
You’ve probably heard the word “repent.” One of its literal meanings is to turn around. When you repent, you stop heading in one direction and return to God and His path for you. In this sense, stopping actually means stepping in a new direction. You might need to step toward accountability, forgiveness, the right friends, or a new place to live.
Ask yourself: 1. If I make the choice I’m considering, where could it take me? 2. What can I stop in order to move closer to God’s divine direction? 1Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us 2. fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Proverbs 28:13 13 He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.
