Good Monday Morning Coffee everyone ☺️! How is everyone? I hope well and in good health. As for me, I am doing great. If you have been keeping up with my blog, you may have notice that some Mondays I have not posted. This is because there are times that I have no clue what my next topic should be. Although this has happen, which I believe happens to so many other bloggers, the good thing is that there are so many older blog post that perhaps you have not gotten a chance to read so let me suggest that you look up some of my older content because I believe that they are very helpful. Also I welcome you’ll to share with me some new topics as well! So with that, I welcome you to a new day, new week, and another encouraging conversation with me, Kenya! Now, if you are ready, then grab that yummy drink ☕️, and let’s start the discussion!
So, for today’s conversation I would like to remind us that God is bigger than our biggest fears. This discussion comes from some recent news and like most news reports it can leave you feeling anxious, fearful, and hopeless. I want to remind you that looking at the news constantly can cause you to feel like “what’s the point of being hopeful”. This is why we need to tune into what heaven is saying.
I don’t like looking at the news because first off, its unbalance. The news reports are mostly devastating and full of drama. They lead you down this rabbit hole and then if you take the bait, that very hole will become a pit. That pit is very depressing and full of doubts and fears. The news is also unbalance because with all the bad news, where are the solutions. I mean for mental health sake, why should we keep looking and listening to constant sad reports. Now I am not saying, don’t ever look at the news because it is good to be aware but it is not good to become clued to those stations.
Recently, though social media I was made aware of something that happen. This thing that happen was very sad. This person shared it because it was a reminder of what they said the Lord had told them. I don’t think anything is wrong with that but I do believe it becomes a negative force when that thing is constantly being mentioned. I believe we have to remember to stay balance and be careful not to fall into conspiracy theory rabbit hole. Whether it’s something happening in the world, your job, or family, its okay to share but don’t allow your troubles to be the only thing that comes out of your mouth. We all know that “person” who always has something negative to say. And we all know that feel we get when we listen to them for the 100th time. We can start to feel depressed, aggravated, or perhaps like ending those relationships. I truly believe that we are not built to carry such negativity nor does it benefit anyone.
So, getting back to the tragic news that was shared, for a moment I felt worried. I thought “Lord what should I do”? Then I began to remember that God is bigger than anyone, than any world problem, and anything else. We are His creation and a part of His Story. Everything is from God and in God and can not escape Him. It is important to put things in their proper order. Remember God created everything, He makes things that are not into “they are”. He can hide you, provide for you, and so much more. For those in Christ, we are more than human, we are a new creation. If you are going to tune into anything, then tune into to those truths. All I see the daily news as being is a means to keep you earthly bond and weak.
Keep in mind that certain things carry a spirit behind it and if that thing is causing you to become fearful, then maybe it’s not from the Lord. It’s okay to be picky about what and who you are listening to because you need to protect your heart and your connection with the Lord. Some months ago, a brother told me that worrying was not going to change anything and when I took his advice I started to experience God’s joy, peace, and the rest of God.
So to conclude, God is bigger than our biggest fears! Protect your heart and your connection with God. Let intimacy with Jesus have your focus. No matter what the world says God is above all. He’s the BOSS!
