Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening to you all!
I apologize for my absence of blogging, haven’t had the time or the words the last couple days, but today is day two of pure peace in my life regardless of prior things that were going on I am at peace and filled with joy.
I am writing today and proclaiming that I AM BLESSED, I am walking in the blessings of God the Father, I may not have all the money of the world or the biggest house in town or the coolest car, but I have a peace and a joy and an overall feeling that I am taken care of. No matter the storm that may come my way I believe that I am set exactly where I need to be.
It has not been an easy last couple months by any means relationships have changed in my life, situations have been sticky, but through it all God was there, He picked me up and put me back on the path He has for these hands and feet to work. I have been able to help people out emotionally that I did not feel like I could in previous months. I have been given the ability to encourage people and until recently I felt as though as I lost that ability or desire.
I am so happy that my joy is back and that I can encourage those around me, it may be a status post or just a kind word or action, but regardless I am excited to see where God is taking me. I thought I had it all planned out, but apparently God has something else and I cannot complain even slightly that the plans have been crossed up. He knows where He wants me after all “He planned exactly what generation I would make the most impact on for Him.” (Pastor Jon Cook).
I am here today to say that no matter what it is you are going through a financial issue, a job, a relationship or even just life. God IS there. My prayer is that today you can find the joy of your life not just happiness because happiness and joy are two very different feelings. My prayer is that you find peace, joy and even understanding at the feet of God the Father. Give it all to God lay it at His feet and have faith that He can help you.
God Bless each of you and I hope you each have a wonderful day.
5:1 Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him. 2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: 3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. 8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
