MY FAITH EXPRESSIONS
I am here to encourage you and to let you know that YOU CAN MAKE IT! Flip the switch and allow the light of the world to brighten your day.
John 8:12 (NLT)
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
Hello and Welcome to My Faith Expressions.
I pray that your upcoming week is blessed and that you are anticipating great things from God.
Word of Hope for Today:
You can make it through!
In spite of any obstacles you faced this past week, you made it to today. I made it to today. Why? Because God, in His sovereignty, made it possible. He created you and I in His image and likeness and believes that we are very good.
As we continue forward in this journey called life, know that with God on our side, we can make it through everything that Satan tries to use to steal, kill, and destroy. Please know that we already have the Victory through Jesus Christ. These temporary set backs are only making our comeback that much grander. This is what we are to cling to.
We do not always have things in order, and the day-to-day mishaps of life will attempt to drain us. Nevertheless, do you know what we have to do? Encourage ourselves in the Lord.
I know someone may look at you a little strange, but every now and again you must say,
“It’s really going to be OK. The enemy that roars like a lion, “like” being the operative word, is just using smoke and mirrors. He wants you to give up and to shut down. But guess what, self?”
“Here, I am.”
“God’s got this! Take a deep breath. Get your focus back.”
“Who do I focus on? What do I focus on?
“GOD AND HIS GOODNESS TOWARDS YOU. Where you have been placing your focus is not meant to harm you, but to strengthen you in the Lord. Seek His will and He will guide you.
Trust me. I know you may be feeling the effects of a doozy of a day. But God’s been with you the whole time. Why do you think your still standing? He will never let you fall.”
“Thanks. I believe. I won’t give up. I refuse to shut down. I needed that. Great talk. Til next time.”
1 Samuel 30:6b KJV says,
…but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.
Now, if anyone just so happened to have walked in on that conversation, just let them know what it is.
“Hey, don’t look at me like that. I’m just doing like David did, encouraging myself in the Lord.”
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT: God gets the glory when our testimony and lives show the world all that God has done to move us from one point to the next. Even during those seasons when it seems dark and silent, God’s Word tells us that He never leaves us nor forsakes us.
Deuteronomy 31:6 (NLT) says,
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.
Isn’t our God awesome?
When your day seems to be filled with unpleasantness, and it appears as though you will never make it through, let your faith carry you to the other side, while God works it all out for good.
Remember, it’s a process, so recall as often as needed that YOU ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH because You have the God who is enough. Don’t look back. Finish the process.
Keep the faith. Don’t give up. It’s only a test. It’s only a test.
I pray that you find comfort and strength by sticking around a bit and taking a peek at any posts that you may have missed this week. If time allows, please feel free to catch up.
