Faith in the Future

Hey, hey...

Happy Sunday...

Faith in the future is what I'd like to discuss this day...

Back in 2008, when the economy barely began to crash, very few people were experiencing it. A gentleman contacted me, one of the first I'd ever helped that wasn't in the emergency field or military. This husband, also a father, was terrified of the future because he lost his job and was trying to obtain another.

He is brilliant, as most men and women are, but insecurity tends to block our intelligence. Fear gets in the way of intellectual thinking because it is a distorted view of reality.

While working with this individual, we destressed his fear so that he could ease his moodiness and irritability and focus and organize his thoughts. He was then able to enjoy the brief time he was given by God to spend with his family.

Fearful thoughts tend to block our ability to have faith, enjoy life, and connect to God. Scary thoughts of the future played over and over in the mind can and will cause anger, anxiety, depression, despair, moodiness, irritability, and/or panic attacks.

Fear is normal in this human existence, yet some of us become so fearful of the future that we cannot think of solutions. Whether we have faith or fear the future, we are not psychic. If we were such great fortune tellers, wouldn't we be millionaires?

Some people are convinced they have to be afraid, which is a deviation from the truth. To waste energy and argue for fear is a powerful disconnection from God.

The confident people are running successful careers, companies, families, and organizations. The insecure individuals don't get the opportunity for advancement because insecurity is uncooperative with success. 

So, if you are one of those individuals who fear the future and would like to evolve your behaviors and beliefs to have faith in the future, I have an experiment for you.

I do these experiments all the time...

I'm always conducting personal, spiritual experiments, and that's how I connect, talk, and walk with God.

My experiments always help me level up little by little, and I want to help anyone else who'd like to advance spiritually, meaning in their faith, love, and trust.

So, if you want to...

Here we go...

The Experiment...

This week, starting today...

Memorize the statements below, and repeat them as often as possible. Feel these statements as you say them.

"I Trust in God! And, I know, more amazing things that I could ever imagine will happen."

"Affirm it!"

"Contemplate it!"

"Meditate upon it!"

'Visualize it!"

Memorize, and repeat, "I Trust in God! And, I know, more amazing things that I could ever imagine will happen."

Affirm it after you say, "affirm it."

Contemplate it after you say, "contemplate it."

Meditate upon it after you say, "meditate upon it."

Visualize it after you say, "visualize it."

Does this sound silly to you?

This will not only help you focus on faith by desire; it is reconditioning and retraining your mind. I've done this and still do. I've helped many create affirmations and ways of focusing, and the consistent, persistent find that it works. 

Some people never, or rarely, follow through. It's all about the desire versus default theory.

Do the exercise all day long in your mind, especially if and when the fear of the future creeps in. Trust me, it'll work. The goal is to be fully present in your mind as you do it so that you are not just saying it but really believing it and feeling it.

I've mentioned lately that we are contemplating and focusing mechanisms. Human beings are constantly affirming, reflecting, meditating upon, and visualizing. That is what we do. Some of us focus on the worst, some focus on the best, and some go back and forth between the two. This experiment, I suggest, will show evidence that we can govern our contemplation of faith over the human conditioning of fear.

It is our authority and power to choose what we will do with our beliefs and behaviors. We can do what we will by default or desire if we want to.

This experiment is to discover how great our success can be. It works! It can ease your stress and develop great faith in the future more and more as it is practiced. That is my humble opinion from my experiences.

One last thing. If you'd like to eliminate your fear and increase your faith even more, another thing you can do is not listen to and read, all day long, or even a little, the fear posts on social media and in the media. I'm just suggesting limiting it if you really care about what goes in your mind.

The scriptures don't teach us...

Trust in the Lord, except or unless...

Have faith in God, except or unless...

All things are possible with God, except or unless...

The truth is!

Trust in the Lord!

Have faith in God!

All things are possible with God!

So! Trust in God! And more amazing things than you could ever imagine will happen.

It's the law of faith, my friend.

You are brilliant, and you have common sense. Common sense is confidence! Insecurity and fear are not common sense or confidence. Insecurity and fear lead to personality disorders and phobias.

The evidence is clear!

Praying for your faithfulness and fearlessness, my dear sweet reader.

I have faith in you!

I have faith in myself!

I most assuredly have faith in God; otherwise, I couldn't have confidence in you or me.

Faith can heal the world.

God bless you, and here's to your successful experiment. 

I'll do it too...

Speak soon...
