Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV)
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart:
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
Let us not forget who creates each of us and his plan continues for our lives. Our own free will changes somethings, but God never leaves us. He gives us another chance to come back to him and live our lives out for him. I love that Jeremiah was told by God who created him because it reminds me that God knows me too.
Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, a promise and a future......
God speaks words over us through out the Bible and they become alive in us as we surrender our will to his will. I remember God being with me in seasons I felt alone. I opened his word (Bible) and felt his presents. I have become a stronger person by leaning on God and family plus friends who spur me on. Each of need others in our lives. We were never meant to walk alone in life. Stop for a minute and look around you. See the beauty of a new day in the sky, trees, flowers and the freedom that we have in a new day. Freedom of mind, spirit and soul.
I go back to one year that I felt so broken in life. My daughter (Tracy) told me to put up post it notes on my mirror in the bathroom. Positive words and scriptures over myself. I had allowed the words of others to form me in a negative way. It wasn't the truth, but I took on their words that tore me down. I am not who people say I am, but I am who God says I am. I learned that day to start the process of change and Tracy will never know how much I appreciate these little post it notes. God used her to speak life into my soul and it began a change within me.
Words can hurt and can be lies over us. Make sure you know who you are in life and never allow words to stop you. Allow words to spur you on in life with a positive side of life. There is so much to gain by living in God's words and knowing who you are. Often people carry words from childhood and even in old age, they are reminded of hurts through words. Let it go and start again this day. Moving forward and not missing the freedom that God has given you or someone you know.
ONE YEAR ~
We were born
We went to school
We decided to become an overcomer of all things
and the list goes on......
For where your treasure is, there our heart will be also.
I love God with all my heart and I love that he gave me a beautiful family plus friends. As I grow older, I have learned to give thanks each day of life with some praise and prayers. I hope today you will purpose this a good day and allow God to give you peace in each situation of life. Through it all, God remains the same. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
