Seeking Spiritual Success

Has anything, or anyone, turned your heart against God? What about others bringing problems into your life? Do you feel your soul is disturbed, or feel comfortable and delighted walking on your spiritual journey? (Psalm 94:19)

Are you weary? Worn out? Exhausted? Dog tired? Drained? Overwhelmed? Dead tired or feel shattered? We get overwhelmed with domestic affairs, socioeconomic status, relationships, current events or striving for secular success. How are we striving for spiritual success?

Overwhelmed for some Christians put them in companionship with those experiencing spiritual weariness. How did I remove myself from this mindset? I had stopped taking on more responsibilities than I could effectively and efficiently manage. I share a Facebook post below from Dana Ives, and it speaks volume on closing the door to weariness.

I once asked a very successful woman to share her secret with me. She smiled and said, “I started succeeding when I started leaving small fights for small fighters. I stopped fighting those who gossiped about me. I stopped fighting with my-in-laws. I stopped fighting for attention.’

‘I stopped fighting to meet people’s expectation of me. I stopped fighting for my rights with inconsiderate people. I stopped fighting to please everyone. I stopped fighting to prove they were wrong about me. I left such fights for those who have nothing else to fight.’

‘And I started fighting for my vision, my dreams, my ideas and my destiny. The day I gave up on small fights is the day I started becoming successful and so much more content. Some fights are not worth your time. Choose what you fight for wisely.'”

FINAL THOUGHTS

For spiritual sucess we need to close the door behind some people and post a sign Satan, I Am Strengthening My Relationship With God – Your Door To Weariness Is Closed Forever. Now Flee From My Holy Spirit Temple. The only thing we should not stop fighting for is the salvation of our soul.

  1. Great wisdom! I have one pursuit~Jesus! I don’t use social media besides this and IG for my writing. I don’t like fighting. I don’t want to be offended or judgmental so I focus on my spiritual success and walk with Christ and how I can help others. After being an administrator for 15 years I’ve truly learned to not be a part of drama and just focus on my relationship with Christ, my family, and the mission he has given me to just show his love. I love my spiritual boundaries that are stronger the older I get! That’s why I love having friends like you, in this space, on the same journey. God bless you, Tangie!! 💛🤗❤️

    1. Amen, Karla. Agree, spiritual boundaries are crucial. This space is full of encouragers and God’s Word; glad our blogs found one another. I am sitting in neurologist office waiting testing for seizures activity. Enjoy your day/night and remain safe. 😊

      2. Will do. I am saddened to hear you are still suffering with symptoms of Covid. Yes, God has us and my morning blog title Red Sea Experience discusses this. I will keep you in prayer.

      3. How was your tests my friend? I have to read your new blog. I must share that I’m doing much better. The new medicine helped! I felt well enough to visit a group of 3rd graders today with my writing presentation and book (with my pup, Finley). It felt so good to be back to work and a bit of normalcy. I slept 6 straight hours! Where would we be without Christ? 💛🙏🏻

      4. Karla, awesome news and know third graders were happy to see you. I am sure it felt good. Lord willing, I will get results on May 24th. We would be lost and miserable without our Lord and Savior. Have a wonderful day/night and Rey safe.

      5. Tangie, There’s no easy way to say this, but I ended up back in the hospital not long after I texted this message. I have stage 4 cancer in my pancreas, liver, back, and hip. My family and I still processing all of this. I love you and am keeping you in my prayers. I will figure out a time when I leave to let all my readers know. 🙏🏻🤗💕😢🥹💜

      6. No! No! Karla, I am so sorry to hear this. I am sad and speechless. I just prayed to God asking for His divine intervention for you and your family. Love you my sister and keep holding on to God’s unchanging Hand.

      8. I love you too. I spent 5 nights in the hospital. The tumor is rare~apparently started in liver, mass on pancreas, two lymph nodes, one on the right side of my skull, spine, hip, and pelvis. I’ll know more after trip to oncologist Weds. I’ll try to make a post to update everyone. I’m praying always for you my friend. God has us! 💜🙏🏻💕👏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
