Hope and Strength

I had a long dental appointment yesterday. Once everything wore off, my face hurt so bad I had to sleep it off! (shock face) Thank God, I have a two week break from the dentist and 1 last appointment! (smile)

Many of us have struggles with something or someone; you know, things and stuff. This is what I’ve learned through this whole emotional dental experience. Too much negativity and constant complaining makes whatever trial or tribulation, challenge, storm, whatever we want to call it that more difficult. Sometimes, we are given advice contrary to what’s in our spirit. Sometimes it gets overwhelming that we must say “enough” and let it go and let God.

Sometimes, we just need to unplug and pray heartfelt words to God. He knows everything anyway, so just be honest and tell Him the truth of how you feel. Free will gives some the right to say nasty things or wrong us. Forgiveness and praying, for them, gives us freedom to live our life without giving power or constantly replaying the thing in our mind. Let us remember, we reap what we sow. So choose to sow forgiveness. It’s liberating and powerful.

Here is where hope and strength comes into play. Sometimes, we have to walk through because it’s Gods will in His master plan for our life. John 16:33, These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

God is always in charge. Most things, we will experience will put more fruit within us. As we grow and mature, our spiritual fruit is evident, as well as, led by the Holy Spirit. You can trust in Him. You can walk by faith knowing He is and will always be in control. His will be done.

He has put desires in each of us and when He says we’re ready; the manifestation comes. Until then, we have hope it will get better and strength to hold on while still moving forward.

Have a blessed evening!
