First Blog of November 2019! WELCOME to you all and I hope you know how much I appreciate each one of you! With Thanksgiving just down the road a bit, this month should prove to be a wonderful time to spend with family and friends!! Also a time to reflect on all our incredible Blessings!
Actually, I’m thinking like…how about we just start TODAY…right now and all the way to Thanksgiving Day?! Why not make this whole month one of giving thanks for all our blessings?! I, for one, have some serious thanking to do and today’s the perfect day to start, right? Each one of us knows exactly what we’re grateful for and why not start today – Right now!
First, let’s cast out all the negativity we’ve stored up for who knows how long! Just send it far – far away. It certainly hasn’t helped any, by storing it up for later use…Nope, there’s no negativity in thankful!! Lets all start off with a clean heart and mind, then focus on all the precious gifts we have right in front of us…you know… our Gifts…they’re called Blessings…all the gifts we’re thankful for in our precious gift of Life.
Let’s all consider that before God does something for us, He just might need to do something in us. This may require that God prepare us for what He’s about to do in our lives…and just because we don’t understand His plan for us, doesn’t mean He’s not faithfully busy at work for our benefit.
Let’s not give up and allow the negativity of a situation to control us. Let’s give in and allow God to work His miracles in us and through us. God’s work is greater than all of us put together! Regardless of our challenges, grief, loss financial burdens, you name it…God has a solution. When we do our best, have patience and trust in Him for the rest, He will never forsake us. God doesn’t work that way. His holy magic is just that. Holy Magic!!
“Patience is the supernatural fruit of the Holy Spirit.”
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” – Galatians 6:9
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.” – Philippians 4:6
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” – Romans 12:12
This week my prayer for us all is that we will do our very best in whatever challenges we face, be prayerful and leave the rest up to our heavenly Father.
GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!
I love you,
