1 Chronicles 28:20-21 New International Version (NIV)
20 David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished. 21 The divisions of the priests and Levites are ready for all the work on the temple of God, and every willing person skilled in any craft will help you in all the work. The officials and all the people will obey your every command.”
ENOUGH SAID ~
The Lord God, my God, is with you.
I wonder how often we deal with thoughts that over power us, instead of trusting in God fully? I had those times of life and sometimes still do. I forget to take a deep breathe and trust the Lord with all my heart. Life can be full of change and complicated beyond words. Let us not forget the words, "Be strong and courageous and do the work". God has a plan and we must focus our lives on that. We often get in the way of God's plan because we don't think things through or pray it through. Then some consequences come our way. Each of us are different and only God can know our hearts. God will draw you closer to him, but it takes a yes from you too.
GOD SAID IT ~ He called me by his grace
Galatians 1:15-17 New International Version (NIV)
But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased 16 to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, my immediate response was not to consult any human being.
ENOUGH SAID ~
God loved you before you were born. He knew the plan for your life and gave you free will to choose right from wrong. A balance of making mistakes, asking forgiveness and receiving it. Forgiveness is given by God and not always by people. Looking up to find God ready to answer the desires of our heart and forgiveness of yesterdays. Keep your mind set on a new day and new beginnings. I am not who people said I was years ago. I am who I am today and I am confident that God has this day set into motion. People's words can hinder us but God's word only encourages us. Don't be defeated by your past, because your now is here. Live in today and live in his grace.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
