I saw this and realised we all have our own private fears that hold us back. the question I have is why? Why do we do this to ourselves? 
With God at our side, there truly is nothing to fear. God has a path for all of us and should this path be uncomfortable at times, surely he is teaching us every hour of every day. 
What do you hold back on? 
Do you create your own barriers?

If I had to compile a list of mistakes that I have made in my life, I think I would be here for a week - from little trip ups to complete whoppers! 
However, unlike many, I also have no regrets. Yes, you did read that rights - NO Regrets. This is because I look at my life and I feel every mistake I made was the Lord teaching me and shaping me to be the person I am today. If I had not learnt these lessons, I dread to think of how I would have turned out. 
I have been lucky enough to have many opportunities in my life, career, relationships etc. but not all aspects turned out exactly as I thought they would. Mistakes were made along the way and lessons learned. If I could go back and speak to a 15 year old me, would I change anything? Not at all! 
Would you?

This is an age old saying but the fact that it has stood shows that it has been time tested and rings true every time. 
In a nation that seems to now think they are 'entitled to' everything handed to them on their laps, this message much be shouted from the treetops. Why should people have everything they want just because they feel entitled? ~What happened to hard work, grafting and thinking outside the box to get results? 
What are your thoughts & what do you plan on doing differently today?

Do you ever wonder what happened to traditional courtship rather than 'swipe apps' like Tinder, Zoosk, Christian connection, Match.com etc. etc. ? 
When did we become so fickle that choosing our soul mate is based on what they look like in a couple of photos (often selfies) and that's mind made up before they even take chance to have a read of your bio, let alone think about contacting you! 
Take meeting people back to the roots. We are all suffering socially due to the increased usage (and availability) of the tech available these days. Take a look at how we meet people naturally; through work; friends or maybe the shop keeper down the road - even then we are becoming encased in ourselves and solitude whilst remaining connected via a screen. 
Why not try something different? Not only Christian people (YES, actual real people) to meet but also hands on advice and ideas to get out and meet people outside of your own social circle. 20 years experience and tailor made for you, what more could you ask for?

We all find moving on difficult but each day we keep going and eventually feelings of hurt subside. I'd love to say this is the truth but many of us although on the outside look like we are moving on, inside can be a completely different story. Dig beneath the surface and we can harbour feelings of anger, guilt and overwhelming sadness and until we reach the point of acceptance, the thought of moving on is impossible. Time is a healer and some people try to jump in to another relationship purely to escape the feeling of loneliness, this is not a good enough basis to begin a relationship. You need to make sure you are ready and love yourself and god before you will be ready to love another. Thank God for every step of progress you make and are thankful that you are coming though to the light at the end of the tunnel. 
Here's an interesting article for those who are going through or have been through the pain of a break up... https://www.friends1st.co.uk/christian-dating-membership/resources/christian-dating-advice/moving-relationship-break/

Rejection can hurt, no matter how big or small we can easily be consumed with how we could have done something differently or 'what if I had done this?' don't get me wrong, this sometimes can be the case and if you had approached something with a different frame of mind or approached something or someone with a different approach the outcome could have been more favourable....BUT... the big question is, can we learn from this? What can we take from this situation to ensure it doesn't happen again? 
Take a peek at this little nugget to see if you can turn a 'no' in to a positive and release yourself from the horrible way we feel when we feel rejected... https://www.friends1st.co.uk/turning-a-no-to-your-maximum-advantage/

I saw this and immediately it made me think of inner peace. When the world is becoming so violent and nature is fighting back causing devastation to the human world as we know it, change needs to happen. If we make the change within ourselves and find our inner peace, it is only then it can be projected outwards and we can live in harmony with the wonderful world God created for us to live in. Surely if we are destroying it, we are destroying Gods work?
