Isaiah 41:10 New International Version (NIV)
10 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.
I think when I remembered that God was with me, I could handle things better. There were times when I did not feel God or even thought he was there. Down the road of life, I grew in faith and I grew in trusting God even more. I knew that somethings just happen and I have found that miracles do come true. I've seen a lot and been through so much sorrow in life. I look back and can understand where God said, "be not dismayed, for I am your God".
Do you ever wonder if people really know you? I mean the real you that lives inside and you wonder if you let that real you out, will people still feel the same about you? I sure have and I do my best to let the real me out and write from the middle of my heart. Yet, there are stories that I hide deep inside of me and the struggle of my mind at times. I have learned to fight back with determination not to let the enemy win in my mind. Somethings just happen and that's life. Somethings need prayer and action on my part. God does his part and it's my turn to my do my part.
Romans 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
A Living Sacrifice12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
If you read my blog and you know my character, write me a note. I do my best to live with a heart of good intentions and I sometimes hurt people. I don't mean to and that's where my heart of good intentions comes in. Get to know others better and live the best you can. Live in the character of God and do your best daily. Turn your negative thoughts into positive ones and share life with others. Life is so short and purpose this day a good one!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
