Typically, this blog is fun and light-hearted. Sometimes it’s even sassy and mischievous. To be honest, I love all of that about this blog but I must be real and say that sometimes, LIFE HAPPENS!
We find ourselves living our “Best Life” and suddenly we are faced with what looks like turmoil. Not just with me but with all of us and we have to dig deeper and reach a little higher. So today, I want to present a different side of this blog. I want to present a place of refuge. I want to remind my readers that no matter what you are going through at any time of your life that God is sitting at His thrown and he sees and hears all of your cries.
There are times when I must be willing and obedient to the Word of God and bow down to his authority. That time is now. On a daily basis we all go through so much. It can be on the job, at home, or within our own minds.
The great thing about God is that He will never put more on you than you can bear and often times we have to remind ourselves of that. Sometimes God has to break us all the way down so that he can build us back up and make room for overflow in our lives.
So whatever you may be going through today, I want to suggest to you to surrender that THING to God. Whether it’s your marriage, finances, a job, your children, your health, an addiction, your mental state, etc. Maybe you’re just constantly on the go and you’re so busy with your every day activities that you haven’t even had a moment to think about your day or what is consuming all of your time. You’re so distant from the world and the word of God, you don’t know whether you are coming or going. Whatever it is, we need to surrender. When we surrender to God we then make room for whatever that is profitable in our lives. Whether it be peace, or love, or joy, or deliverance, or just time.
We have the power to face our situation straight in the face. I tell Satan all the time, not today! Hell nah, to the nah, nah, nah!
There are also times when I have to reconnect my faith. As an adult I tend to let my worries or doubts do the thinking for me. I know that is not right. I have to remind fear that it is not the GPS system of my life and therefore I will not be following along its path.
Like the Prodigal Son, I have to go back to what I know and what I know to be a constant in my life; and that is, that God cannot be moved. He is still like the tree planted by the waters. He is still the beginning and the end. He is still the only living one. He is still Lord of Lords and King of Kings. He is still my rock!
Can I get an Amen?
In closing, I would like to say this prayer for all of you:
I thank you for the readers of this blog. I ask that you touch them wherever they may be in this appointed time. I ask that you give each of them the strength to surrender to you and your will. I pray that you take what was and make it be better than what you said it was going to be. Turn their test into a testimony. Turn their pain into joy. Lord God I pray that as they go through this storm called life that they would come out as pure gold. We thank you for your power, for your grace, and for your mercy. We ask that you see past our insecurities so that we can learn to grow again. We ask that you give us peace that surpass all of our understanding. But most of all we just thank you for being you. In Jesus name, Amen.
I love each and every one of you and I pray that this blog will be beneficial in your life today or whenever “Life Happens”.
