Never give up on your dream, desires or wants in life.
Jeremiah 29:12-13 New International Version (NIV)
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
WITH ALL YOUR HEART ~
Sometimes in life people don't hear us. They tend to turn an ear away and we feel as if our voice is silent. Maybe feeling as if your opinion doesn't matter and the wonder of why say anything at all. There are times when you just want someone to listen to you and hear your heart. My heart knows that Jesus loves me and that he changes things. I have found that prayer not only works, but changed me inside.
Yesterday, I went to church and felt the holy spirit so strong. I saw how worship changed me inside and I felt a peace come over my soul. Church isn't just about community or seeing people you know, but about a closer walk with God. As I began to worship, I saw my granddaughters lifting their hands and singing. My oldest granddaughter who is 9 said, "Grammie I love worship". I felt the same way yesterday as I lifted my own hands to God. There are things I can't change and I can't handle without the Lord. I cry unto with a praise of the miracles I have seen in life. I am so grateful for my family and friends who walk along side of me. Nobody is behind and nobody is in front, because we share a common bond with the Lord and with each other.
PEACE I LEAVE YOU ~
John 14:27 New International Version (NIV)Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
IT IS REAL ~
There is something about living for Jesus that changes us forever
Take a few minutes and think about the good things that has come into your life. Maybe it's a person who walks by faith, maybe it's a miracle what God has done for your family or friend or for you. God has done this for me, he set my feet upon a path of faith and I've grown into a stronger person. I have seen miracles done for family and friends. I have a trust beyond a human understanding in God and I know that he is able to handle whatever comes my way.
Sure I have had hard seasons of life. The big wonder of why but I have learned to let go of why and thank God for each step of the way. It was in the hard times that I found who God was to me. He never let me or forsake me. He listen when I was angry at him and didn't know how to go on. He sent real friends into my path of life to help guide me spiritually and my family helped too. I was lost, but now I am found in God. It's not just words on a page today, but words planted deep inside my heart. A heart that love God big and I know who I am in God. He listens, he wants the best and he works through each day of our lives. Give it him today, whatever you struggle with and ask for strength to move forward. Ask for courage in scary times and peace beyond whatever you thought was possible. He is a peace maker!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I know sometimes at hard, but sometimes are very great too. We might need to look for the good in a day, but I promise the good is there. You are reading this on purpose and God has a big plan for your life. Go ahead and trust him through your day. Count those blessings of life and give him thanks for all you do have this day!
GOD HEARS YOU!
