As the seasons begin to change I am reminded that change is inevitable. I’ve changed, relationships change, people change, and our priorities change. It used to make me uncomfortable when people change, but I’ve come to realize it’s not always them. In fact, most often I’m the one that has changed. You see, in order to grow we have to be uncomfortable. When you’re uncomfortable, you’re changing! Change doesn’t have to be a negative experience. It may be painful, but God is with us every step of the way. I no longer live in fear of the uncertainty of life and other people. Those are things I can’t control. Instead I live everyday desiring God to consume more of me. When my focus is on him I have less time and opportunity for frivolous things. I am learning to TRUST the Process, leaving all my cares and concerns to HIM. HE knows, and HE cares! Have a wonderful Wednesday and know that you are loved. ❤️Be safe, be blessed. It’s a NEW SEASON!
I’m so glad that I serve a God that sits high and looks low. Because of HIM I can face any and everything that comes my way. Sometimes I don’t understand it but what I DO know is that I will get through it. You see, most of what the enemy fails to realize is that they can attack you all they want. It’s that FULL ARMOR OF GOD that they need to be afraid of! Every morning I pray and ask God to cover me and those closest to me. I ask him for wisdom in every situation. Don’t you think for a second that HE doesn’t hear his child and answers when she calls. Be careful who you play with and whose battlefield you choose to walk on. God is my protector and HE will fight every demon (person or thing) that rises against me and mine! With God, there is no fear, and I have no fear. Stop wasting your time and energy on things not suited for PURPOSE! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved! ❤️
I always know when God wants my attention because HE disrupts my sleeping pattern. When this first began to happen was after my parents died. I was unable to sleep for days on end and I just assumed it was apart of the grieving process. As days, months, and now a couple years have passed, I have been able to return to a somewhat normal sleep cycle. But! At times HE still requires more of my time and attention. I live a busy, always got something going on type of life. On top of that I’m a thinker so quite often I find myself “resting” but my brain is still in motion. God knows exactly how to disrupt my pattern. HE does this generally because there’s something in my life that is going to shift and requires my full attention. I’ve learned that when I am in a season of shifting it is important for me to pay close attention to everything around me. This is when I spend more time praying, reading my word, and praising my way through! It doesn’t matter what happens in the end because HE is always with me and HE will perfect everything that concerns me. Don’t give in, don’t give up! God is always with you. Have a wonderful day! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
Sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone means doing things different in order to reflect change in your life. God never promised that life would be easy. What HE did promise was to never leave or forsake you. Your worrying has never changed or made your situation better. Learning to trust HIM in every situation makes life SO much easier. To whom MUCH is given, MUCH is required. It’s a new day, it’s a new season. Have a wonderful day, be safe, be blessed and know that you are loved. ❤️
Sometimes I think God allows you to remove yourself from things so that HE can get you alone. So HE can renew and refresh the work that HE has started in you. As the seasons in my life are ever changing I’ve learned to maintain a healthy space for my inner self and a peaceful spirit no matter what. I don’t always understand what goes on around me but I do know that God will perfect everything and everyone that concerns me. Life is all about change and I too must learn to adjust. In this season of being still and remaining quiet I am learning many valuable lessons. The greatest of these is that I have nothing to prove to anyone. I am HIS creation and HE made me to HIS liking. Therefore, I have no reason to doubt or fear. I may not be where I want to be but I am definitely on my way. I am becoming exactly who HE wants me to be. The opinions of others don’t matter! It feels so good to be free! This is me……..Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
As I write this, my eyes are filled with tears. This week I have been reminded that even though I grow weary with waiting, God always shows up! Several months ago I began reading the Prayer of Jabez. As I focused on intentionally asking God to enlarge certain areas of my life it became very clear that in order for this to happen I needed to grow. I had to focus more on what I was doing and less on what other people were doing. It’s NOT my job to please other people or allow their dysfunction to disrupt my life. Loving people from a distance is becoming a practice for me. I can love you and keep my peace. God knows what I want and HE is well aware of what I need. His timing is the catch! Things won’t always happen when I want them to but if I remain FAITHFUL or the little things, HE will show up! I am now able to see the good in every experience, failure, and letdown. I needed to be reminded of who God is and how HE can place me in situations that I could have never imagined. Don’t grow weary in well doing, wait on God. HE’s ALWAYS on time! Happy Saturday. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you! ❤️
Sometimes I get so anxious about what’s to come in my life and then I remember that I am NOT in control. Being the type of person that has been forced to take the lead on most things and be responsible for others, it just seems like making it happen is what I do. But when you are forced to wait on God to move it can be SO uncomfortable. Patience is an area of growth that I see needs work. I feel like I’m patient and then I get anxious, start to worry, and at times doubt it’s going to ever happen. I know that having faith and giving it to God is a part of, or should be a part of our Christian journey but to say I don’t struggle at times would be a lie. As a mature in HIM, I’m learning that I only want what HE has already said is mine. If HE didn’t do it, I don’t want it! Not my time, but his time. Not my will, but his! If I have to wait, I’ll wait on him. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved ❤️.
As I wake this Sunday morning in my spirit there’s a song, “Turning Around For Me”, by Vashawn Mitchell. The way I used to deal with things that bother me is much different these days. It’s so funny, you can be having the best day, feel good, look good, and in a split second something changes the forecast of your day. But know this, no matter what you are going through, it’s turning around for YOU. You are NOT alone in your struggle whatever it may be. Don’t let that struggle dictate your day. Acknowledge it, adjust your position, and let it go. If God brings you to it, HE will bring you through it. God is just that GOOD! Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you. ❤️
Sometimes life brings you to a place where all you can do is sit and ponder. Ponder on the things that are happening or have happened in your life. Ponder what lies before you and if things are as they seem. PONDER this…….God is an amazing father and all that you need is him. Ponder on his goodness and how he has promised to never leave you nor forsake you! Stop pondering situations and circumstances that are beyond your control. Give it to God and ponder on him. He is the only one with the power to make things change. Tonight I am grateful that in the midst of turmoil all over this country I can rest in HIM. I love you all, goodnight.❤️
Good morning! It’s testy Tuesday and trust me you WILL be tested! Don’t fall prey to the devil and his messengers. God has so much more in store for your life, trust HIM! Stand firm on who and what HE has created you to be. Have a great day and be encouraged. HE never takes us to a place HE’s not willing to keep us. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you. ❤️
