scars into stars

when feeling hopeless, in despair...
1. reach out
reach out to friends, family and people who love you. don't isolate yourself from the very people who can help and encourage you.

2.trust GOD
decide to trust JESUS. feelings have nothing to do with the decision. you can make a move to reach up and out. its your choice.
when you choose to reach toward God, who wants the very best for you, either you or your circumstances (or both ) will change! 



3.choose your thoughts
think on God's thoughts instead, because his plan is to see you through any hardship and give you a life of peace and joy.
you may not be able to see his plan right now, but don't give up! press on, push through! on the other side of your hopeless, discouraging thoughts is God, and he is waiting for you on the other side of your pain.

4.look up for the love and grace of God to help you
you may not feel God is listening at times, but he hears you! Lovingly, he is working out things for you benefit. the truth is: God hears and he heals. he will work things in His time. keep talking to him, keep believing and he will show you that he is an anchor to be trusted.

5.let God turn your scars into stars!
healing begins when self pity ends.
get the focus off yourself, take a step out of self pity! 


6.allow God to turn your why into wow
the bible says no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what god has prepared for those who love him
let his great love erase all your whys
look what God can do when you simply put your trust in Him
God has more ahead for you if you would look and reach for it and be willing to live above the pit of self pity and despair. he will help you hear the truth and move forward instead of staying stuck in a pit of sadness and tears
the things we think might destroy us, the people who fail is, the relationships broken, instead can enlarge our hearts. 


7.crawl out of the pit mentality
make a deliberate choice to stop and deal with negative thoughts.
say I CHOOSE NOT TO DWELL ON THAT THOUGHT even if everything in you wants to go there
REPLACE THAT NEGATIVE THOUGHT WITH ONE OF GOD'S POSITIVE THOUGHTS FOR ME.
I CAN DO ALL THINGS BECAUSE CHRIST IS STRENGTHENING ME
I WILL MAKE IT BECAUSE GOD'S GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR ME TODAY
GOD HAS A GOOD AND BRIGHT FUTURE FOR ME! I BELIEVE WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT ME!
it takes intentional choice and self control!

8.hope will replace your heartbreak and despair!


Wishing you happiness!
