I like how the Bible speaks of renewing a steadfast spirit. God knew there would be times we would need to renew our minds in life. Through it all, I've learned to trust in God and cast away thoughts that take me away from thinking right. God is amazing and I have the choice to see goodness that following my life and so do you.
Psalm 23:6 (NIV)
Surely your goodness and mercy (love) will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
FOREVER ~ I will dwell in the house of the Lord
What a great statement to think about in life. Forever is a long time and God's love remains the same for us. The spirit of Lord is real and it takes a daily communication with him. Pushing off the desires of the flesh and walking in the spirit of truth. A sudden reminder to dwell (stay) in the house of the Lord with thoughts and actions.
Galatians 5:16 (NIV)
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
FOREVER ~ I will choose to walk with God. Learning daily ways of doing things better and growing in the word of God. Not everyone takes time to seek God's will for their lives. Life seems to be too busy and we often miss out on blessings.
Have you ever just wished you had done something different? I have and it often takes up more time than I would like to admit. Running over things we can't change, is wasted time. I have known people who never change. Their disappointments of life consumes them and they can't reach out beyond their pain. Wasted years happens and yet faced with a new one. I've known other people who take the worse thing that happens to them and turns into ministry. The devil isn't going to win in their lives and new beginnings happens. A determination to change life to better not bitter.
God, help us daily to have a stedfast spirit in you. So many things can happen in one day and often times hard to see beyond the moment. Help us to live in today and learn quickly of your ways. Put people in the path of the reader of my blog to encourage those who need it. To see beyond yesterdays of life and know that a new normal can be okay. Some people reading this needs health, finances, miracles and new beginnings. Other are happy and living the American dream. Help us all to find the strength and courage we need in a need day to believe big. AMEN
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
