Today, let us break the habit of talking and thinking about our problems or negative stuff. Instead, let us talk and think about the good stuff and the joy in our life. And if we must, sing a song! 😜
All good things come from God. God loves us unconditionally. God will never leave us or forsake us. God provides for our needs. God blesses us. God gives us life. God protects us. God heals. The joy of The Lord is our strength. God is always in charge. The list can go on and on.
So what brings you joy? Have the courage to share. 😀
God is always in control, even when we don’t understand the why of something.
Change is a lifelong process of challenges, we must walk through to know the will of God for our lives.
God use challenges , whether it’s a person or group of people, place (work) or things (traffic, long lines) to help produce more fruit in us–love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control). Fruit, as well as, our spiritual maturity takes time to grow and mature. (shock face)
Sometimes change is about adapting without complaining.
Sometimes, it is, what it is, keep moving forward.
Sometimes, we just aren’t ready for the next step.
Sometimes, we allow the “what if” to stop us.
Sometimes, our pride and/or stubbornness blocks our fruit from developing.
Sometimes, our free will to choose keeps us stuck.
Sometimes, we just lack encouragement. Remember Romans 8-28 says “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
So change is the test to walk through challenges, by faith, trusting God without complaining.
The not complaining part, can be a retest many times before we mature in self-control.
When we surrender to the Holy Spirit, change and/or challenges become easier to walk through.
Somedays can be just brutal, as soon as we recognize a challenge, let us breathe and praise The Lord that this too shall pass and The Holy Spirit will lead us all the way through.
Sometimes, we just need to try something different. 😜 Sometimes, we just need someone to point us in the right direction. Reflect on Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.
