I love how a new day brings so much hope. Trusting in the Lord and leaning to him for help. Giving thanks for this new day and knowing that he is able to handle it. I have learned to let go and let God. I made a discussion to sow to the spirit. Asking God for help to make good decisions and live according to his plan. The goal is Heaven but until then, living in the freedom of God. Be careful who you trust and what you believe in.
Galatians 6:7-8 New International Version (NIV)
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.
NEW DAY BRINGS ~
Isaiah 40:31 New International Version (NIV)
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
NEW DAY BRINGS ~
Jeremiah 29:11-13 New International Version (NIV)
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will callon 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.
Isn't it true that we want answers? There are questions of why, how come and when will this be over? Sometimes we just don't get those answers and we learn to trust the process. Other times, we do get answers we might or might not want. Ive been asked this, "if God was so big then, why did he let this happen"? I just don't always know the why of all things, but yes I trust him. I trust him to make this day better and help me through it. I trust him enough to let go of asking why and know he is able to help me everyday of life. I wish I could change somethings, but I can't. I wish I had some answers, but I don't. Will I continue to put my trust in God? Oh yes all the time. I have no where to go but to the Lord.
I have seen miracles and I want to point that out today. I also have seen some prayers not get answered the way I thought. Down he road of life, I understand a little more. God doesn't always tell us why in life. There is a reason God says in Revelation 21:5 ~ behold I make all things new. God has a plan for each of our lives. He has purposed us to be right here reading this now. God turns the uglies of life into better. Please know that God does make all things new again. This too will grow you into a better person or bitter. I hope you choose better no matter what you are facing today or a loved one is facing. I am reminded that life can come from your tongue and spur you on in this new day.
A new day brings hope and encouragement. Take a few minutes just to give thanks for this new day. Count the blessings in your life. We might take health for granted and don't do that. Give God thanks that your health is good and your able to do the things you need this day. Sending encouragement out to someone and be a blessing in their life. Our life shines brighter than we know and others count on us to be that light. Just like we count on others to be a light in our life. God has connected for our lives for a bigger purpose than we might realize. Live for him and share his goodness this day.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
