Stop and assess yourself right now...what are your values, what are you missing, what is your path???  Now make sure all these things are in alignment and if they aren't take the steps to get there.  Life is a journey that needs constant assessment and adjustments.

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path- What is your path?  Believe in the spirit of God and Jesus along with the belief you have of yourself.  Those two beliefs coupled together will take you to amazing places. 

Philippians 4:6-7 In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God will surpass all understanding.
