GROWING UP ~
Proverbs 3:6 New International Version (NIV)
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
I don't add the half number on my age anymore. I have learned to live in my now of life and my age is one of knowing the importance of a new day. In that new day, God has a plan and as I lean to him, he opens my understanding to his ways. God is amazing how he directs our path of life and our yes to God makes such a difference. I wanted to give my heart to God, but it took time. Time of learning the Bible and time of surrender within myself. I had to let go of things I couldn't change and change the things I could. Just like driving, I needed a good example of someone to watch. In my God walk of life, I look to others who are older than me and I see how they came through lots of stuff. Learning to trust God and learning to lean not to own understanding on things.
What are you waiting for in life? A miracle of health, finances, a closer walk with God or things that seem impossible? God is at work in the behind the scenes of your life. Never doubt God's power or give up on a dream. Look up today and see who the sky is painted different everyday and how our today's are different as well. That same God to created, still creates miracle and can guide our lives just fine.
Psalm 77:14 New International Version (NIV)
You are the God who performs miracles;
you display your power among the peoples.
You can open the Bible and find scriptures of hope. Scriptures that will grow you into a deeper relationship with God. Nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes. Words are powerful and never doubt your own words. Stop saying you can't and begin to say I can. I can do all things through Christ.
Philippians 4:13 New International Version (NIV)I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
GROWING UP ~
1 Corinthians 13:11 New International Version (NIV)When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
There is so much in a new day but let us count blessings in our lives. All the things God has already done for us and how God can give peace in all situations. I have learned as a child and now I have learned as an adult. I do put away childish things, but I never want the child inside of me to leave. That child has taught me things and I have grown from childhood into an adult. I can see the power of words and I can see the importance of trusting God when I can't see the answer. God is a God who cares and shows us through many things. His word (Bible) stands true and I value people who live a faithful walk with God too. Purpose your self in a good church that teaches the Bible and lives it.
My prayers continue for the readers of my blog, your family and friends. Purpose this a good day and speak kindly to yourself too. I can and I will speak words of life over me. I hope you will do the same. Happy new day!
