WHO KNOWS WHAT TODAY WILL BRING ~
Put your hope and trust in God
God's word days:
Jeremiah 29:11New Life Version (NLV)11 For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for well-being and not for trouble, to give you a future and a hope.
SMILE ~ the plan continues of God
Hebrews 4:12 New Life Version
12 God’s Word is living and powerful. It is sharper than a sword that cuts both ways. It cuts straight into where the soul and spirit meet and it divides them. It cuts into the joints and bones. It tells what the heart is thinking about and what it wants to do.
SMILE ~ The word of God guides us and gives us hope.
Our own free will can get us into trouble. We make decisions and wonder why God allow certain things to happen. I've been there making wrong decisions and then found myself upset at God. Later in life, I realized it wasn't God's fault at all, it was my own free will. We must guard our minds and take responsibility for making wrong choices. Doing the right thing in life is a must for me. I have changed so much over the years and I totally see the importance of one smile and one decision. One choice can last a life time.
I've learned to play over great moments of life. Not to allow the sadness to stay, but it often entered my mind. The mind becomes a battlefield of thoughts. Will I choose the sad ones or dwell upon knowing The Lord is my strength and I will find peace in the midst of a changing day. Changes that brings some sorrow to my heart and changes that bring some joy to my heart. Mixed together to run this day with some smiles and allowing the positive to win in my life.
I am not sure what you face today, but I do know that a smile might be hard to find. Look deep inside your heart, recall some great moments and then a deep breath. Calling upon the name of God today might not be where you are at. But somehow you came across this blog and I promise that I am praying of you. I care about people and I write daily to just share some hope in a new day.
I was broken, I was scared to reach out and I never wanted to attend a church again. BUT GOD, came himself to heal my broken heart and worked on me gently to begin again. I know that my life is beyond words right now and my heart has big faith for you too. God restores and takes that broken heart to smiles.
We grow daily by learning and just living life one day at a time. Today choose some right thoughts, send a smile to yourself in the mirror of hope and realize that God can do this. He created YOU for purpose and this moment in life. I"m asking largely for you, your family and friends as I pray. I pray the best and I pray hope, joy, peace and all good things for your lives. I've heard it said, that prayer changes you, which changes things. I've changed greatly and I see that. Over the years of disappointments and wonder, I thank God daily for this life he has given me.
Thank you for taking your time to read this and share this with someone. It's crazy hard to get out of a place of life that hurts. We need each other and a smile goes a long way.
Proverbs 17:22 New King James Version
A merry heart does good, like medicine,
But a broken spirit dries the bones.
