TRUST BEYOND LIMITS ~
God wants us to seek him and trust him in all areas of life. So much can happen in one day. I see the joy in one family and the brokenness in another family. One celebrating life and one celebrating (Death) in a life celebration service. Just a fine mixture of the joys of life, along with sorrow. I love how Jeremiah 29:13 speaks of seeking the lord and finding him. When we do something with all our heart, we are putting all of ourselves into it. God knew we needed scriptures to hold onto and each other.
MY HEART ~
Galatians 6:1-10 (NIV)Doing Good to All
6 Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3 If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.
4 Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, 5 for each one should carry their own load. 6 Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.
7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Your personal story matters. Sharing where God has brought you from and to where you are going is important. God is amazing and opens our minds to believe BIG. We are human and we get tired in life. Let us not become weary in well doing, but know that seasons come and go. It is all mixed together like a perfect cake. Reaping and sowing is a blessing to the family of believers. We just know that God can handle this and that greater is ahead.
Even in moments that are amazing, we can feel so sorrows. I was right in the middle of Disneyland (yes the happiness place on earth) and had emotions. I miss the old times and realize I'm in a different season now. Seasons can be weird and yet rewarding. I see the temperature change as we go from one day to the next. I see happy faces and faces that express sorrow. I have learned to find the best in one day. Living in the moment of life and share smiles are important. I had a small conversation with a lady yesterday and I feel her sadness. As we continue to talk, I saw a smile come upon her face. Change is not always easy my friends, but it happens.
I am very thankful for this day and will look for opportunities to be a blessing to someone too!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends!
