God’s Blessing

God Blessing

The man whispered “God, speak to me”
And a meadowlark sang.
But the man did not hear.

So the man yelled “God speak to me!”
And the thunder rolled across the sky.
But the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said “God let me see you”
And a star shone brightly.
But the man did not notice.

And the man shouted “God show me a miracle”
And a life was born.
But the man did not know.
So, the man cried out in despair.
“Touch me God and let me know that you are here!”
Whereupon God reached down and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

Don’t miss out on a blessing because it isn’t packaged the way you expect.

Be Stong and Courage

Be strong and courage

In this great big world wherever we are God promises to be with us. He does not want us to be afraid or discouraged, instead He tells us to be strong and courageous. God promises us this in the Bible; because of this we can find peace in knowing that His word is true.

Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9)

Those words can bring so much peace in difficult times and during the best of times. When I read this scripture it stood out to me and I couldn’t get it out of my mind. Every time we feel afraid or discouraged God promises to be with us and knowing that, we can be strong and courageous. Think about it, how many times during the week or even in one day can we feel discouraged? It doesn’t even have to be huge events, it could be as small as not getting everything done in the day we had planned, or feeling afraid about presenting something at work, or going for run our business.

It’s very easy to become discouraged because sometimes we set unrealistic goals for ourselves like taking on too much in one day. Also it’s in our human nature to try and figure out life by making plans according to what we think is best. Instead what we should do is bring our hopes, desires, dreams, and all worries to God and ask Him to guide our days according to His plan for our lives.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

God promises us that He is with us wherever we go so next time we feel nervous, afraid, or discouraged turn to God and ask Him to help us be the strong courageous person God created us to be. If now we have friends who are going through some difficult time, lets we pray for them, ask God to give them strength and courage and that they would not feel afraid or discouraged. Pray and proclaim Joshua 1:9 for ourselves and the others in your life. May we find peace in Gods promises knowing that He is true to His word and that He loves us wherever we goes. Amen

“God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.” (2 Samuel 22:30-32)

“Love is not a place to come and go as we please,

It’s a house we enter in,

And then commit to never leave.”
