Hello everyone! Welcome to my daily column! I hope that you had an awesome weekend! I have lots to share with you guys! I hope you enjoy tonight’s column.

Do You Try Too Hard?

The feeling of defeat, you try so hard yet only find things getting worse which makes you assume you aren’t doing enough. Does any of this sound familiar?

I think about the years when we develop our personalities, our teenage years. I don’t know about you, but I still had a ton of responsibilities! I had to please my parents, I had to please my school, I had to find a boyfriend (yes, I was one of those girls), I had to find fun. We learn to stay busy. We learn that our efforts form a grade that will either gather praise or punishment. Regardless, the amount of effort we put into our work seems to define the project.

Let Go, Let God

I was talking to my partner about this the other day. Many creatives know that art, songs, writing, etc. come from letting go of thought. Something that has never been done before isn’t going to come from memories or identity, it is going to come from spirit. But what does art have to do with trying to make a relationship work, or trying to work on a project?

If we know that spirit and flesh are enmity against one another, we know we have to make a choice! I loved how the pastor said on Sunday, Christ can’t come into agreement with what is outside of his will! It seemed to have come into agreement with this message, this walk will come with stumbling blocks if it is not of the spirit. Not only do we find divine design in spirit we also find help.

Do You Try Too Hard

When things are not flowing, it calls us to connect with the father. It calls for us to stop trying. The same is true when we are working on projects that only seem to get worse, no matter how hard we try. Or perhaps a relationship that is failing is calling the two to come together in prayer. Maybe religion taught you how to block your prayers by teaching you etiquette rather than relationship. We will find consequences for the things we do and the things we do not do. We can’t run away from God even if we try, I am living proof as an ex-atheist of seventeen years. We mid as well stop trying and surrender to him. T.D. Jakes said it best!

The greatest of all weaknesses is the inability to recognize and capitalize on your own strength and self-reliance.
