Waking up today over 30 years laters, we find the joy of the Lord still our strength. Maybe things haven't turned out the way we thought, but we can look at miracles of life. Our own thoughts are a battle at times and we must conquer them in prayer. We must change our mindsets to positive and know recall some miracles we have already seen in life. Never allow the enemy of your soul to distract you from the plan God has for you.
Ephesians 6:12-13 King James Version (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

I will put on the full armor of God daily
There are people in our lives that influence us. I want to be a person of influence back. I want to help spur someone else on and see the value in their lives. Life moves so fast and we sometimes forget to give thanks unto God for a new day. Lives become so busy and sometimes I hear people wish they weren't alive. Their situations are hard and almost too much to bare. Down the road of life, we can see how God was preparing us for a new thing of life. The truth is, you made it and what was meant for harm, God turned around. We must lean to God for understanding on somethings and leave other things alone. Our example of life influences others further than we might know.
Genesis 50:20 New King James Version (NKJV)
But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.

God will bring good to you
Have you ever wondered why God allow somethings in your life to happen? I certainly have and I may never know that answer, but I will trust the Lord. Have you ever trusted someone and they came through for you? I have and I have also trusted when things fell apart. Life is too short to get stuck on certain things of life. In 1989 we lived in a house I called my dream home. I loved it and we had problems with money. We choose to sale it and rent. I found myself getting so mad at God. Keep in mind,it was our choice to sale it but I was 33 and didn't see the big picture of things. We listen to others and we should have listened to our own hearts. Growing up still happens even when your an adult. Follow your heart, follow your dreams and don't let anyone sway you into what you do not want to do in life.

Throughout life, some healing must accuse in our lives. Healing over words, brokenness and life changes. Learning to live through deep pain and also joys of life. Ups and downs but yet God is always there. Faithful and we can become determined to make our situations better.
I am here on earth for many reasons. One is to write you daily and share real life. Life can be hard and disappointing at times. We go through making wrong decisions and living with consequences of it. So as a new day begins, make the best of it. We can not go back and change the past, but we can change our now which changes forever. You are alive for a greater purpose and hold onto scriptures of hope. Life changes daily and each of us can grow from things of life.
My thoughts and prayers continue for the readers of my blog, your family and friends.
