I just wanted to tell you guys that Jesus is just so awesome. God is just amazing. I’m reflecting on my last few weeks. And God’s absolute stance in my life is so defined. I am just so unbelievably thankful. See the thing about faith is….. it doesn’t work unless you believe and prove your belief through the tests and valleys.
James 1:3 (NIV) –
because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance
This is so true in every aspect of life. We have to and must work for things. Let me give you an example; You lose your job. You pray God blesses you with another one. And your neighbor owns a business, he’s hiring but you don’t know that bc you’re too busy crying and praying about the situation that you’re in. Do you get the job? I mean to earthly and seemingly natural mind being upbeat and positive during the valleys is the craziest notion. Let me tell you something, if you do not praise Jesus and thank Him for what you do have during these times you will stay in that situation. If you do not get up and put in effort to gain the next blessing He had for you….. you will stay in that situation. If you lose faith or don’t actually believe that God will turn your tragedy into a triumph….. you will stay in that situation. (Romans 5:3, Hebrews 10:36, James 1:2-3) Jesus has just abundantly poured out tremendous blessings even when other aspects of life were getting rough. I do not have the words to express the gratitude I have been overwhelmed with on multiple occasions towards God and all He does, continues to do, and will do for me and my family and all those around me. THANK YOU JESUS!!! AMEN
