Isaiah 41:10 New International Version (NIV)
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
DO NOT FEAR ~ I GOT THIS.....
Psalm 46:1 New International Version (NIV)
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
There comes a point in life when we live in peace of knowing God's got this. This being whatever we need to trust him with, live our life in freedom and the knowledge of the word (Bible). I can't say I believe in miracles and then doubt God. God has a plan and even though we don't understand everything, we can understand that we trust him. Down the road of life, I can look back to see God has guided me through some pretty tough times of life. I used to stress over everything in younger years. For example, when my husband would get laid off work, I would cry. How are we going to make it? But you know what? He always found another job and we always made it. It's our view point of things and resting in the peace of God that makes the difference. I wish I had learned this younger in life, but I am glad I know it now.
Stress does nothing but keep us from living in freedom with God. If we say we trust the Lord, then don't doubt his power. If we say we believe in miracles, then keep the faith. Faith is what we can not see but know is real. We must read the Bible and plant scriptures of hope.
Romans 10:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
DO NOT FEAR ~ I GOT THIS.....
Nobody knows the thoughts that travel through your mind, but God. God gives us an open door to thoughts and actions. We can learn and grow from others in life, but sometimes we must just encourage ourselves like David did in the Bible. He knew who God was to him and he knew who he was to God. He had open communication with God and knew that God has his life under control. He went through things and he continued to trust the Lord. How about you today? Do you go through things and find your faith stronger or weaker? I've been through weak times of life, but as soon as I put on worship music, open a scripture inside my head or reaching out to someone, I find the Lord right there lifting me up.
A CUP OF TEA OR COFFEE with God ~
Nobody but God knows us like God does.
After all, he created you and knew this day would come. A day of thoughts and needing him a little bit more. God is able and I know this too well. I heard a song that goes like this, "Just a little talk with Jesus, makes everything alright". This is so true, because knowing Jesus opens up a brand new way of thoughts. There is power in the name of Jesus and a lifestyle that shines for him. Stir up some positive thoughts today and live in this day! One more day of blessings and surrounded by the love of God. I love how God plants people in our lives to help me, encourage us and be there for us in all seasons of life. Think about it, God connected our lives through this blog. I might not know who reads it, but I believe it blesses at least one life a day.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and friends.
