God’s word in Matthew 11:28-30 declares, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”(NIV) Wow! Living in a season of frustration is strong enough to break a camel’s back. But as you whether the storm, do not allow the spirit of frustration to steal your love, peace, happiness or joy. It’s not God’s plan for you to feel an overwhelming sense of frustration daily. Believe it or not, God doesn’t want your heart to be troubled. Instead, He wants you to smile and live happily without the burden of frustration.
God’s plan for your life is to live life and live it more abundantly. Abundant living is peaceful living. It’s living without constant distractions. Think about it; peace should provide a comfort level that surpasses all understanding. When you establish total peace, your entire life transforms.
That’s why the devil understands that frustrating you distracts you from God’s purposeful design for your life. When the enemy bombards you with frustration; you fail to live at your fullest potential. You become short-tempered, spiteful or neglectful. That’s the plan of the enemy. He wants to distract your attention from living life at its highest peek.
Let’s dig deeper! Happiness doesn’t merely exist when you’re frustrated nor does peace permeate the atmosphere. Learn to create peace. It may sound difficult at first “creating peace”, but it’s worth the try. When you embody peace, you create an atmosphere that’s inviting to you and everyone align to you. By creating this soothing comfort zone, you begin to shut out life’s negativity.
When creating a ‘frustration-free zone’, infuse the powerful practice of gratitude. By tapping into your happy place and practicing gratitude, you learn to defuse those negative energies that attempt to consume and capsize your day. Believe me, when you’re happy, everyone around you gleans from that happiness.
In an effort to rid frustration, plan to set aside time in the mornings to meditate and give thanks. You can do this by creating a ‘frustration-free zone’ in your home. Establish a playlist of calming music, affirmations, prayers, etc. Light soft, white candles. Purchase comfy, large, colorful pillows. Sit on them in a comfortable position. Breathe deeply. Close your eyes, as you inhale and exhale. Visualize positive imagines that make you smile. Create a positive energy around you. Connect with yourself on a spiritual level and give thanks.
Trust me. You have what it takes to live life and live it more abundantly. But in order to live life peacefully, you must learn to believe that you deserve peace everyday unapologetically. This is your season to take back your life and walk in your authentic self.
