Thankful, Even When

Thankful

Even when I don’t understand

Even when I still struggle with my past

Even when relationships fail

Even when I wish for more or less

Even in the midst of trials

Even in the loss of others

Even in walking the walk, which at times is difficult

Even when others hurt me

Even when I hurt someone else

Even when I don’t understand

thankful

Many things..

I am still thankful for God’s mercy, grace, love, protection, provision and the ultimate Heavenly home I will one day have.

God has plucked this unworthy woman out of her past and into the wonderful future.

Today, Take the time to remember that God loves you even in the midst of all of your uncertainty. Always. That will never change.

In Awe Today

YELLOW FLOWER FREE

Freedom is Sweet

Christ amazes me daily.

Today, a woman at our church told me that even when others would have given up in the face of such tragedy as mine, she was blessed to see my faith continue to stand.

I am in awe of God’s faithfulness to me and my family.

Even when the enemy continues to try and take my family in all form and fashion..

I will stand because I can look back and see HIS faithfulness and the healing HE has done in my life.

How about you?

Be thankful today. Remember where He has taken you from.

God’s Beautiful Plan

Our Christian faith is under fire today in this nation.

Our nation cannot find a common ground that will protect the citizens of America. We are living in a nation where the government is playing games, trying to control others and demanding their way. Childish games that are causing the American people to lose money, services and necessary help because of the child like actions of our national leaders.

Even in this trying time, we have to remember that our God is always in control, even when others are constantly wanting to strip away our God given rights as believers, we can stand strong in our convictions knowing that God has a beautiful plan even when we don’t understand.

Trust Believe Stand

My own personal life has had many tragedies, struggles, hurt, loss as well as everyday life challenges, but I look back and can now say that much of what I have faced in this life has been for my benefit even when I could not see the plan.

I would never wish the suicides/murder/abuse/loss/anxiety/fear/agoraphobia on my worst enemy, but when God allowed those struggles and pain to enter into my life, He must have had a plan for it all.

I recently told my friend, P.J. that if the only reason I went through such pain and struggle was to help one other person, then it has all been worth it.

On this side of heaven I may never understand the true PLAN, but when I reach the end of my life I hope to be able to say ” EVEN WHEN I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, I STILL BELIEVED AND TRUSTED. ”

How about you?

Can you trust even when you don’t understand?
Can you see the positives even in the midst of the negatives?
Can you look at your past and see the redemptive work God has done in your life even in the midst of a mess?
Can you see God’s Beautiful Plan?

Today, I want to offer you hope. We may not understand the path our nation is currently on, but God is still in control. Our nation was founded on the Word of God and God still has the ultimate say in the final chapter. We have to continue to pray and seek God’s face and ask for our nation to be humbled.

We may face more heartache and pain before all is revealed, but we must STAND. God has the final say and He is in control of the plan.

Praying for you today. Be blessed and know that you are loved by a God who knows you by name.
