I’m Not in the Mood

I AM NOT IN THE MOOD.pngHere we are at the beginning of September and as we begin to change seasons, I am just not in the mood!

I’m not in the mood to move ahead of God when He’s been working with me for a while on how to just Be Still.

I’m not in the mood to keep doing things my way when my way doesn’t always work.

I’m not in the mood to give myself to people who don’t deserve access to me.

I’m not in the mood to involve myself with people who add no value to my life but only take from me.

I’m not in the mood to entertain individuals who have no purpose in my life.

I’m not in the mood to get myself caught up in situations that I had no business being apart of in the first place.

I’m not in the mood to get my feelings hurt unnecessarily because I stepped off the path God had me on.

I’m not in the mood to limit God.

I’m not in the mood to hold on to things God is trying to remove from my life.

I’m not in the mood to remain bound by things God is trying to free me from.

I’m not in the mood to stay stuck where I’m at when the door that leads to my elevation has been unlocked already!

I’m not in the mood to be disobedient and then whine when things go wrong.

I’m not in the mood to be disappointed in myself.

I’m not in the mood to take God’s grace for granted.

I’m not in the mood to go around blaming others for my unhappiness.

I’m not in the mood to judge others for not being like me.

I’m not in the mood to allow things in my life that take away from my peace.

I’m not in the mood to let the world rush me.

I’m not in the mood rush God!

I’m not in the mood to worry about things I have no control over.

I’m not in the mood to avoid my process.

I’m not in the mood to doubt that God is going to do over and above my wildest dreams.

I’m not in the mood to live in fear!

I’m not in the mood to let temporary things become idols in my life.

I’m not in the mood ignore what God is trying to tell me.

I’m not in the mood to walk around with my head held down because things aren’t going my way.

I’m not in the mood to take today for granted as if tomorrow is promised.

I’m not in the mood to take those I love for granted as if we’re promised tomorrow.

I’m not in the mood to keep falling short in the same areas that I should have overcome by now.

I’m not in the mood to run back to what God delivered me from.

I’m not in the mood to operate in spaces that I’ve outgrown.

I’m not in the mood to be controlled by my emotions.

I’m not in the mood to let my flesh get the best of me.

I’m not in the mood to ignore my convictions.

I’m not in the mood to let toxic people and things consume my mind.

I’m not in the mood to let the internet tell me how to live and how to feel.

I’m not in the mood to try and be like everyone else.

I’m not in the mood to conform to the ways of this world – I rather be the only one of my kind.

I’m not in the mood to run from my emotions and use temporary fixes to get by.

I’m not in the mood to run from my healing.

I’m not in the mood to allow my past keep me from receiving all that God is trying to do in my future.

I’m not in the mood to turn down much needed help.

I’m not in the mood to stay angry with people and let them steal my joy.

I’m not in the mood to let the enemy have his way.

I’m not in the mood to give into temptation knowing that delayed gratification will bring so much more satisfaction.

I’m not in the mood to let my spirit remain weak.

I’m not in the mood to be stagnant.

I’m not in the mood to waste time I don’t have.

I am just not in the mood!

See, when God has been working on you – pruning some things from your life, disciplining you, investing in your growth – it’s hard to live your life like He hasn’t. When He’s been moving, it’s hard to tolerate less than His best. When you’ve experienced freedom and peace, it’s hard to be in situations that take away from that feeling. When He’s delivered you from some things, it’s hard to go back to that person you were before. And anyone or anything that takes you back to that old season has to go!

I have one focus these days and that is becoming the best me I can be. I’m here to live a purposeful life. I’m growing into the woman God has called me to be and I’m just not in the mood to give too much of myself to things that don’t even matter. I’m here with open arms, ready to receive all that God has for me. I’m aware that He is still preparing me for some of those things, but I’m here for the process too! I am here for it all and I am not in the mood for anything that isn’t aiding in that process.
