Hear me, O God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy.
Sunday’s message was a reminder to me of the countless fathers and mothers who haven’t met the Father. It was also a reminder of the importance of my changed behavior; my life must show God is real. Help me, Jesus! I love and thank God for my non-believing father. God continues to use Daddy to increase my desire to live a life of holiness – for the sake of all unbelievers. I will continue to pray for him and will always be mindful of living a life that will introduce others to the Heavenly Father. Have you met my Father?
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
…if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
I know quite a few mothers who were at home and are now being forced to work outside the home. Some have been embarrassed to share this, yet we all are feeling some type of financial stress on our wallets. We don't know what the future holds for our Nation, yet we know we can hold on to God's unchanging hand. The same God who has been with us is still with us. I too, am considering different avenues to market my cake business more. The most important thing is not to lose our joy of the Lord (our strength) and peace of mind through these trying times. We serve a living God and He owns everything - surely He will provide for His children. Have a joyful weekend, enjoy your family, love with the heart of God, and may you have perfect peace!
If you're a step-mother reading this, please know you are stronger than you could ever imagine. God would not put this on you if you couldn't handle it. This trying time is not about you, but God is strengthening you, grooming, and pruning you for His glory. He needs you to keep walking through the fire, so you can share with another step-mother when the opportunity presents itself. Keep praying and stay focused on the Peace Maker - He is your strength!
If I came through the fire alive; so can you! I didn't know Jesus like I know Him now! Stay strong, stay prayerful, and stay connected to your power source. It's already alright!
James 5:16 (TLB)
...The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.
What’s your situation today? Did you pray?
Proverbs 3:5,6 (NKJV)
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
