As I sit here sipping my hot fresh cup of java, gazing out my back door window, looking, pondering, and dreaming, I see the beautiful array of snow covering every inch of the ground. I think to myself…..I am blessed…
BLESSED BEYOND WORDS…
It is not just that I have a warm and cozy home to call my own, clothes on my back, food in my pantry, vehicles to get me from point A to B, money in the bank, a wonderful husband, two amazing kiddos, a dog that I love like one of my children, or that I have the best job in the world….the moment of truth is that above all of these many, many blessings, I have a father in heaven that loves me.
I have a father in heaven that calls me his own, that knows my name, that favors me, that speaks to me, that gives me the ability to see beyond myself…I am blessed because God is within me…I am blessed because he goes before me…I am blessed because he allows me to live this extraordinary life.
I AM BLESSED!
Does that mean that my life has been or is peachy? On the contrary to that belief, my life is not perfect; nor will it ever be. But I have PROMISES given to me by my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. And if I was the betting kind, my bet would be placed on him following through with his word.
HE WILL NEVER LET ME DOWN!
God will never leave me, forsake me, or steer me in the wrong direction. As long as I put my FAITH, HOPE, AND TRUST in him, I do not have to live chained to the things of this world.
See, my eyes are focused on God and God alone.
I am here to do Kingdom work- no matter the cost, no matter what I have to do, and no matter where I have to go. I am on God’s payroll and my payroll is priceless and set above anything else that this world can give me.
There is no amount of money that is worth it to me to live like the people of this world!
I am called to be SET APART!
I am called to LOVE like Jesus loves!
I am called to go into the deep waters and TRUST that my God will anchor me!
I am called to not ask questions, but to be OBEDIENT to what God tells me to do and to God’s word!
I am called to be God’s HANDS & FEET!
I am called to EQUIP others to follow God and the plans that he has made for them!
I am called to BUILD and not destroy!
I have a VISION
I have WISDOM
I have DREAMS
I have GIFTS
I have TALENT
I am CALLED for such a time as this…
I have been CHOSEN for such a time as this…
Because at the end of the day, I answer to GOD…
So here is the moment of truth for you.
Do you count yourself…BLESSED?
Are you ready to give your all to JESUS?
Do you believe that he has a purpose & plan for your life? If not, please read Jeremiah 29:11.
My God will do exceedingly above anything that I could think or ask…..
My God is able to turn any situation around…
My God loves EVERYONE no matter where they have been or what they have done…..
It is time for you to start looking at your life through a different kind of lens.
We all fail, we all fall short and we all have things in our lives that we wish we could change.
We have all been hurt, we have all felt pain, and we all need God to make us whole again.
~Look at yourself in the mirror today….and say that you are BLESSED!
~Make the decision today to live how God wants you to live and stop trying to live like this world.
~Stop trying to please “PEOPLE” and decide today to strive to please “GOD.”
~Stop running from your calling because you feel unworthy, unloved and fearful.
GOD QUALIFIES YOU!!
YOUR WORTH IS FOUND IN GOD!
GOD LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT!!
GOD SAYS “DO NOT FEAR…FOR I AM WITH YOU!”
It’s the moment of truth…..
