14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
Everyday of life we can count blessings. Even in the worst of times, there is something that is good from it. I remember hearing my daughter (Tracy) speak of getting out their house while they saw the fire close. She was thankful that they got out alive and safe. Yet, after awhile she realized that their house would probably not be there when they could return. Looking over the ashes that day, so many memories gone and counting blessings they have insurance. Nobody knows exactly how long to be back on their property and in their new house, but probably over a year. A year that change will continue for her and her family.
CHOOSE TO COUNT BLESSINGS ~
I am old enough now to realize that GOD IS ABLE to handle my now of life. I can choose to count blessings in the worst of times. God is such a peacemaker in my heart and hopefully your heart. Through it all, we lean to his understanding and not our own. We may never know the why of things, but I believe it is going to be okay. I trust God with all my heart and I've seen too many miracles to doubt the power of good. It isn't just the universe but a God given power. I believe the bible from beginning to end. Somewhere into between, I was created for purpose, just like you. Someday there is a song that sing words of understanding things by and by. Yet, I don't need to understand so much today, because I know that GOD HAS THIS DAY PLANNED.
GOD IS ABLE ~
KEEP THE FAITH and keep pressing toward him through it all. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I CARE~
