Celebrate Never Alone


The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.
~ William Shakespeare ~

And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.
~ Deuteronomy 31:8 ~

You learn from both positive and negative experiences.
~ Unknown Author ~

Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, came forth of the midst of the fire.

And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.
~ Daniel 3:26-28 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another week to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well. (smile) This week, I smile as I celebrate hopeful and faithful encouragement that we’re never alone in a fiery furnace or dealing with the persistent thief pushing until they hit a nerve.

Fiery furnace is my metaphor for less than kind environments and the persistent thief is my metaphor for less than kind people.

Fiery furnace and thief situations happen to all of us. No one can escape the ebbs and flows of life.

Praise The Lord for mercy and grace in the going through phase. He will never leave nor forsake us. We’re never alone. How about that. (smile)

Fiery furnace and thief situations are part of life lessons with the sole purpose to develop, produce and multiply spiritual fruit within us: love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.

To be strong in The Lord endures.

Fiery furnace and thief moments are temporary, like seasons. We may get bruised but not broken.

Changing perspective and focus helps to stop talking about it and/or the need to do something or explain anything.

Praise The Lord, God is the best vindicator.

Experiencing the fiery furnace and thief moments may be hurtful or even painful, just know this, we’re never alone.

Bygones. Casting cares. Greater is he, in me, than he that is in the world.

Self control. Self esteem. Strengths and weaknesses. Who we are in Christ. These things are great motivators to keep moving forward because we’re never alone.

Victory brings inner strength and wisdom experience.

Regardless of situations, we’re never alone. God goes before us, with us and after us.

Remembering this provides hope and comfort in the fiery furnace and dealing with the thief moments. I’m a witness. (wink)

To God, be the glory.

Abundant blessings, my friends because the just does everything by faith. Praise The Lord. Enjoy your weekend!

As always, I welcome your thoughts. (smile)
