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
God is an awesome God, He reigns over Heaven and earth with wisdom, power, and love. Our God is am awesome God!!
I lay here tired but can’t sleep. This my nightly fight. Waiting for sleep to befriend me. As I lay in the dark, my eyes sting with exhaustion, I pray with an overwhelmed heart, brimming with humbled thanks to Jesus. I am so thankful for my life, my children, my man, and for the many many blessings of God. Every night I feel just how small I am on this earth yet just how much God’s love abounds in my life. I daily fight my flesh. The last few weeks I’ve been fighting off infection and have been quite sluggish and lazy. It was yesterday that I realized that this was a sneaky attack of the enemy slowing the progress of my business and shadowing my leadership. Yet every night, I lay awake in my mind as my physical body is beyond tired thinking about the wondrous and glorious blessings and gifts God has given me. The thing I learned the most from Shane’s death was that time is the most valued commodity we have. God is so good that He allows me to breath, for my heart to beat, and gives me sound mind. My children are safe, alive, and well. My Husband to be its absolutely amazing. God has blessed me with things I sought after and more. I recognize that I am with His favor to even live in this Era or even with this freedom to own a business that is centered around Him. Helping as many ppl as I can save and make money from home. God is in every fiber of my life the good and bad. Yet, nothing is truly bad for a child of God. God took what was tragic and flipped it into something even greater than I ever thought possible. When I think back over my lifetime I can clearly see Him guiding and leading the steps of life even in the valley’s.
