This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Joshua 1:9 English Standard Version (ESV)
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
John 8:31-32 English Standard Version (ESV)
The Truth Will Set You Free
31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
THIS IS THE DAY ~
I choose to look at a new day, as one filled with hope!
God is able to handle my now of life. I can replay things that drive me crazy or I can let it go. People change over time and so did I. I am not the same person as I was when my kids were little. I have seen things and dealt with hard situations of life. I have chosen to forgive myself and press on into the Lord's truth about me. The truth will set you free from worry, doubt, fear and all negative things. Having a relationship with God changes you, which changes your reaction to things.
Life is short and I talk about this a lot in my blog. I have seen things change suddenly and it's hard to deal with in life. I have seen miracles from God and I know his power is real. There is too much to live for daily, than to live in the past. A new happens for a reason and we might not understand all the ways God, but we can understand a trust. Think about it, when you trust someone you don't question if, you just know they will do the right thing. My husband (Terry) spoke about our son (Chad) when he was little. He climbed up on a tall dresser and looked at Terry. Chad jumped into his arms without warning. Chad knew his dad would catch him and he did. Although Terry wasn't prepared to catch him, it was a reaction of knowing to put out his hands.
PUT OUT YOUR HANDS ~
God wants us to trust him with all our hearts
Each of our own decisions can direct our own path of life. Some of which do have consequences and we push through those. Others, bring many blessings and a heart filled with joy. All together, we can find life just a fine mixtures of mess ups and new beginnings. Count this new day as a joy unto your soul. Give honor to God and praise in what you do have in life. There have been times when I was so jealous of other people and what they have. As I grew up, so did my thoughts. Now I am happy for those who are happy and I see what I have in life. I am a very blessed woman and I love that God has taken my uglies to a beautiful place. It's time to spur yourself on my friends and be happy for this new day. Live moves forward and our example is far greater than one really knows.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
