Philippians 4:13 New International Version (NIV)
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
STAY STRONG ~
Live in knowing God has open new doors for a reason
Things happen in life that takes us away from who we are at times. I know that I went through a time wondering what was next in life. I felt like I wasn't needed in certain areas of life, but I was wrong. It was a feeling and emotion. It carried me away from purpose. I received a text message from a friend named Sonia. She shared somethings with me that only God knew. She had been fasting and praying for two weeks. It brought her closer to God and she was amazed that she was totally right. God gives us words for others and if we only share them. Nobody knew my feelings at that point but God. I needed to get my emotions inline with the truth from God.
Sometimes we when we get, we get weak physical and spiritually. We just get tired of being sick and we drift from our normals. For example, a eye virus took me away from reading for about a month. My eyes hurt and it was a struggle to see clearly. Watery eyes are no fun and I even struggled in writing my blog. I press through and did it, but I needed a miracle of health. I feel so much better today and value all the prayers that went up for me.
STAY STRONG ~
What are you facing today that you need to stay strong in? Whatever that is, don't face by yourself. Allow God to give you courage for another day and reach out to a friend or family member. God places people in our path for purpose. I have a few friends who have recently lost loved ones and it so hard. Looking through the pain and trying not to ask why did this happen. Even some of the strongest people I know go through the hardest things of life. They don't always share with others and that's why I often say pray for the strongest person you know. We just never know what one person goes through in one day.
Psalm 28:7-8 New International Version (NIV)7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
and with my song I praise him.
STAY STRONG ~
My heart trusts in God and he helps me
Words of wisdom throughout the Bible and a book to live by. Daily a verse can encourage, strengthen and remind us of truth. God's way are not always our ways. We must surrender to his plan and look beyond our circumstances at times. Somebody needs you to be strong and see yourself strong through God. Prayer changes you which changes things!
Ephesians 6:10-11 New International Version (NIV)
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
ARMOR OF GOD ~
Read Ephesian 6:10-20. I will write more on that tomorrow
Purpose this a good day and share a smile with someone. My prayers continue for you, you family and friends.
