SAY A PRAYER

Many people feel they have nothing to offer because their checking account is in the red or they cannot match the gift someone else is giving. Being a blessing to others go far beyond the money and stuff. Everyone has something to give to others and that is the gift or blessing of prayer. It does not cost us anything to remember someone in prayer.

Your prayers can touch someone thousands of miles away in a hospital room you have never visited. Your prayers can help turn a situation around for someone. In a lot of cases, your prayers can do what money and material stuff cannot do. 

If you ever think you have nothing to give, remember you can lift up someone in prayer. In fact, we should always take time to remember others in prayer. All of us are in need of it.

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 1 Timothy 2:1,2

Be blessed.

God's Redirection

I cannot begin to count the number of times I have made plans only to have them interrupted in order for me to go or do something altogether different. Honestly, the change is not always welcomed when it occurs, but later on, it makes perfect sense why it had to be. In times like this, I can fight against it and try to continue to do things on my own and in my own way or I can accept God's redirection and carry out my part in the plan He has designed.

God's redirection is always purposeful. Everything He does has purpose. We have to learn to flow with God even when it makes us uncomfortable or disrupts our lives in some way. His redirection leads us to someone who needs to hear life is worth living. His redirection leads us to families in need and we have what is necessary to meet the need. God's redirection takes you from one job to another job. Rejection is redirection. God's redirection leads us to the people, places, and things we should be.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32: 8

Be blessed.

DON'T WORRY, TRUST GOD

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19


Worrying over this and that is something most people do. The constant tragic news stories and headlines regarding death, ups and downs in the stock market, and job lay offs are enough to cause many people to panic and worry if their trust is in other things and not the Lord. What benefit comes from worrying? Not one thing. God is able to meet every need we have. He is able to  give us more than enough. We look to our Father for our help, but many are doubting Him when they do it. They wonder if He will come through. They forget the countless times He has come through in the past.

God does not promise to supply all our desires, but He will meet our needs. In fact, He knows what you need before you even ask of Him. God is faithful. Do not focus on your problems but place your focus on the One who supplies all your needs. Your is help is here.

Be blessed.

BETTER DAYS ARE HERE

We often hear the saying, "Better days are ahead or coming." As I glanced over a post I made years ago, I thought to myself, "No, better days are here....right now." Saying better days are ahead or coming means I am looking for these days to come. To say better days are here means I am no longer expecting but I am experiencing it. I know what you might be thinking. You may be going through a really rough time right now and cannot possibly visualize yourself experiencing a better day. 

I believe our words create worlds. If you are going through a trying time at this moment, tell yourself better days are here and believe what you say. Take the time to find something good or positive in your life to look to in order to encourage yourself. Although difficult at times, I do believe no matter the circumstances in life, one can always find something good.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:3

Be blessed.
