FOUNDATION OF FAITH ~
WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT ~
To set your mind on counting blessings? My choices totally affect my now. Yesterday is gone and I find my strength in God. I find that suddenly things change and my thoughts matter. Words are powerful and can either bring us closer to God or further from him. The enemy of our souls wants to destroy us. I find it crazy how one thought can lead us to another thought.
Proverbs 12:18 NIV
The words of the reckless pierce like swords,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
Proverbs 16:24 NIV
Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT ~
Because God has given us choices in life. To think upon good things and speak words of life unto ourselves. We can't give out, what we don't have! Study the word of God, learn of his ways and take steps toward speaking life. It's easy to say negative things about ourselves and we need to see the positive things about our lives. We are important, we are created by God and we are learning daily to become better people or bitter people.
Our foundation of life has begun for us far before we were born. God has a plan for each life. Our free will often gets in the way of his plan. Make sure you pray and seek God over things in life. Be that example of Jesus to someone and watch lives change. One person makes such a difference and that one person is YOU! Study, wait and listen to the plan for your life. The past is gone, the present is here and we do have a future. Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, A promise and A future.
Each of our lives face something different and yet the same. We handle things different in life and I choose to live the best day I can. I'm thankful to see another day and yet I don't like seeing somethings in my life. Somethings are just hard to watch and you feel totally helpless. Yet, a peace of God can enter in my heart and my mind from God. It's so important to take time to count blessings throughout your day. It makes the harder things a little easier.
Take a few minutes to count some blessings in life. God hasn't brought you this far to leave you. God has a bigger plan and greater things in this new day. Hold tight to faith and call a friend if you feel alone. Don't stay trapped in wrong thinking and live in powerful thoughts of victory. You can do this and you are incredible. God's designed you for this season of life and he knew you can do it.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends!
