~January 2, 2015~
Here it is, day two of a brand new year and I’m already feeling bummed out.
The past two days have been pretty rough. There’s been arguing and attitudes, raised voices and hurt feelings. God knows I didn’t want the year to start like this. So now what?
It’s time to put FAITH in action!
Things aren’t always what they appear to be. And things don’t stay the same for long. Don’t dwell on negative things or negative emotions.
Keep believing, keep your focus. God is always faithful.
The author and finisher our faith isn’t through with us yet.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV) says, “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.” In some versions it says, “I know the plans that I have for you…” God has a plan for our lives. He wants to give and do good things for us.
Romans 8:28 (NKJV) says, “And we know that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
We might be going through a rough time, but God can use those times to help us grow. Sometimes it’s for a learning experience or test of faith.
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)
Don’t rely on your own strength. Whatever we are facing, with God, we will make it through.
2015 is going to be an amazing year! Believe it!
