Thank God for the journey. It was meant for you. God promised to restore, elevate, and promote you. He will teach, discipline, refine and mold you into the person He designed you to be. In all things, God will get the glory.
You will face challenges. Trials and tribulations are to be expected. It’s who you will choose to trust when going through it. God is all-knowing. He knows and understands all that you are going through. Trust him. He will do just what he said he will do.
Praise God in the good and the bad. When you don’t understand what’s happening or it doesn’t make sense, STAND. Give it to God. He is bigger than our problems. Great is our God. No manner of sickness, disease, obstacle or setback can separate us from the love of God. Be encouraged.
Shoes are made for walking but when they are worn, the pain can be unbearable when you walk. Journeys are not meant to break us but to teach us a new way to walk. Like the heel of a shoe in the sidewalk, we may fall between the cracks along the way and get stuck. We either can take the shoe off, pull it out of the cracks and move on, or allow it to defeat us and choose to give up. Don’t be discouraged. Walk in your purpose. Keep it moving!
Be blessed! –JD
Colossians 1:9-12 “For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.” (NIV)
