Are You Living Proactively or Reactively?

Life…  It can be full of many challenges each day, of various size.  Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in these hurdles and get in a reactive state towards life. 

We feel angry.

We feel frustrated.

We feel overwhelmed.

We worry and fret and fear.

We are exhausted, physically and emotionally, and become paralyzed.

God does not desire this sort of life for us, and we don’t really desire this sort of life for ourselves!

It takes a good mixture of faith and work to overcome the obstacles of our days.

Jesus reminded us that, “In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”  (John 16:33)

Yes, we will have problems and issues and weaknesses and trials in this world, but God is still God.
HE “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” (Ephesians 3:20)

Firstly, I ask you,
How is your faith today?

In Whom or what are you placing your trust?

Encourage your heart.

Look towards God.

Refresh your mind with His Word and His purposes for your life.


What are you doing to be proactive in your life?

Are you telling yourself that yes, there will be problems, but through God you can meet the challenge?

Are you doing all you can to protect yourself
and be strong for the day’s troubles?

Are you striving towards more order and preparation in your home life to make things run as smoothly as possible?

Take some time before God and ask Him for the next steps you need to have a more proactive life.

A proactive, rather than reactive,
life produces a state of peace in our homes and hearts.
