WHEN OUR MINDSET CHANGES ~
See things through Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, A promise and A future
Philippians 4:4-9 New International Version (NIV)
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
CHANGE ISN'T EASY ~
I read that my gentleness should be evident to all
However, there are times in life when we get anxious and frustrated over things we can't change. The big wonder of why and how come this happened to me. I hear others a lot and their situations are unbearable and yet they hold tight for a miracle. That small amount of faith and hope that God will answer this day to their need. I hold tight for my friends who need to see a miracle of health too. It doesn't make sense to my brain when it comes to younger people being sick. Yet, It happens and it isn't easy to deal with in life. God is still able to handle anything and prayer does make a difference.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 English Standard Version (ESV)
Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Keep a positive attitude about life. Please know that my prayers continue for the readers of my blog, your family and friends. I know that big things happen in life and health becomes an issue. I also know that God is able to heal you, your family member or friend. I have seen miracles of life and all I know to do is hold on for those who need to see one today. I have seen God answer suddenly and that change is amazing. Find some scriptures of hope and put them around your house or even in your car. It becomes a reminder of who is in charge of life and death. It's not always easy to rejoice when it's you facing a hard day, but calling up praise works. There is something about music that calms the soul.
Romans 8:11 New International Version (NIV)
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
