Looking back at my blog this year I thought I had written a whole lot more than I did. Then I looked into my drafts area and saw a lot of drafts that were not written. 55 of them to be exact. Writing is not something that comes easy to me. A dyslexic introvert I have so many struggles why I hit publish. I am hoping in 2019 I have at least 1 blog post a month. Here to 2019 and I hope and pray you have a Holy Holiday season and Happy New Year.
Love, Peace, Hope and Joy be with you,
Are you sitting in a pit of despair? Are you wondering if things are ever going to get better? Are you apart of a broken organization and wondering when things are going to get better? Are you hoping that the world we live in be more peaceful and loving?
Friend let me tell you better days are ahead. Have hope, look for the little victory vs the big ones. Open yourself up to the idea that for things to get better means that things may not be the same when things were good before. The worst thing is never the last thing if we have hope that the God will take care of us.
In working on my sermon series Fail: What To Do When Things Go Wrong. I have found myself fixated on this verse:
“Then the Lord’s word came to Jeremiah: I am the LORD, the God of all living things! Is anything too hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:26-27 CEB
Nothing is too hard for God. How often do we go to God and cry out for help? How often are we willing to receive the help that God provides for us. It may not be what we were hoping for, but, it is something that God knows we need. Open yourself up to God and see the small nudges that God is giving you and these small nudges will lead to something bigger and better. Have hope that God will take care of you.
Use this as a guide to help you grow closer to God. Take some time in your day to Read the daily reading slowly and allow the Holy Spirit to guide you as you read. Reflect on what you heard, read or experienced when reading the word of God in with a journal or some other ways that you can express what you experienced as you read the scriptures. Respond in prayer, going to God with everything that is on your heart and just pray.
