How About You?

How About You?

Hello and Happy Friday!

 

I don’t know about you, but I need a nap and it’s not even noon yet…yawn…  I was tempted to crawl back in bed,  but I wanted to share something God gave put on my heart this morning.  I was thinking about some friends that are walking through some really tough times right now.  My goodness it breaks my heart to watch people I love struggling!  But if there’s one thing I know, it’s that God is the answer no matter what the questions are.  How about you?  Are you fighting something that’s bigger than you and need some answers?

If I told you that the trial you’re walking through has the potential to point the people around you to Jesus, what would you think?  What if I told you that how you handle it has the potential to stir up courage within them?  Well it’s true!  Through your pain, God is giving you the opportunity not only to experience His love and mercy for yourself but also for those watching to see it too.  Know this!  NOTHING is wasted.  ALL these things are working together for your good. {Romans 8:28} God goes before you and He will never leave you or forsake you. {Deuteronomy 31:8}

Will you trust Him and let your story be a showcase for His glory?  If your answer is yes, then pray this prayer and prepare to watch Him do more that you can ask or imagine! “Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You today, broken and exhausted.  I can’t do this anymore, so I give it all to You.  I need you, God. I believe what Your Word says, so even though I’m hurting, I will wait patiently and expectantly for my miracle. You are good and You are faithful!  Thank you for letting me be a part of Your plan, all I ask is that you give me the grace to stand.  In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.”

Pray this every day if you have to.  Pray it until you believe it!  You can do this!!  Be brave and believe, because your deliverance is coming for all to see!  Here are a few scriptures that will bring life to your soul while you wait. Let the words soak up into your spirit and take a deep breath.  Before you know it, you will be on the other side of this thing, better and stronger than before with a testimony in tow!

 

Matthew 11:28

Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

2 Corinthians 11:8-10

Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me.  But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities.  For when I am weak then I am strong.

 

Hang in there and if there’s anything you’d like for me to pray with you about, please let me know.

XOXOXO,
