Galatians 6:9 New International Version (NIV)
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
In Church, there are many great stories, victories and miracles. There is a flip side that too, there are those who get hurt and refuse to go back. If we could only remember, that people are people and all make mistakes with words and actions. I found this to be true, sometimes God moves us to another church for a bigger reason. The important factor is not to quit.
Hebrews 10:24-25 New International Version (NIV)
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
I HEAR YOU ~
I've talked with a lot of people and I hear this, "But you don't understand". I understand that I don't need to know your complete story to for you. I started this blog called, "youdontevenknow" for a reason. I was told by a Pastor that I needed to tell her everything before he could pray for me. God doesn't work that way my friends. Anyone can pray for you without knowing the complete story. That's why we have something called, "unspoken request". God knows what is inside your heart and what you need. God connects us with people who will pray and hold on with us. Never stop believing in miracles and hold onto the truth (Bible).
Seasons come and go for each of us. There are happy days, sad days and a mixture of both days in all of our lives. God is faithful and a promise keeper. The key to live is asking and believing but knowing even if does't happen your way, God can see down the road of life. I've been disappointed in my prayers going a different direction, but I look back and see the protecting hand of God on somethings of life. I've made my own mistakes and consequences to follow. I'm no different than anyone else, a human trying to look beyond and doing what God has called me to do.
Back to praying for your friends and family who need God. Never stop praying because we don't know what goes on inside of one heart. We don't know that moment when God might send someone else into their lives to talk about Jesus. We don't know everything, but God does. He wants us faithful in our payers and praise to him. I pray daily for my family and friends who need God to answer quickly. I pray daily for the readers of my blog and believe big for you too.
God has chosen you and created you for this day. Don't allow yesterdays to stop you from doing what God has called you to do. Forgive others and let it go because it only causes hurt inside of you. Others forget and may never remember those hurtful words or actions done to you. Only God can restore your heart and put you on a new path of life. It's not easy and I've cried many tears over words plus actions of others. But I've also experienced much joy of new beginnings and this day I choose to live in freedom of that.
WHEN IT HAPPENS TO YOU ~
When you experience God's love and new beginnings of a day, you experience freedom.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
