Be Grateful. Give Thanks to God. It’s Just That Simple.

What I Want JoaynnIt doesn’t matter how well you do in life, especially when it seems all is going as planned. It only takes one thing that will change your life forever. Be ready to fall on your knees in prayer to God when life changes.

We’re not promised tomorrow. Don’t take life for granted. Keep God at the center. Pray, meditate, study the Word. Give thanks to God. It’s because of his grace and mercy you are alive.

Some didn’t make it today. Thank God for brand new mercies. You woke in your right mind, with a portion of health and strength. Without God, you never would have made it.

You may not have what you want. You have what you need. You may not be where you want to be. God has you right where you need to be. Thank God. In everything, give all glory to God.

Be blessed! – JD

Look At God! He Brought You This Far. Aren’t You Glad He Didn’t Leave You Where He Found You

How Amazing JoaynnAt times, when life becomes a cycle of uneventful circumstances that leave us helpless and hopeless only to become weary, in despair, we may tend to lose focus and sight of God.

Our spiritual life gets turned upside down and we began to feel the impact in our spiritual walk. We break silently, not having much to say, if nothing at all. Yet we still praise God even in our moments of silence; in the midst of turmoil.

Not that it means we are isolating ourselves from those we love. We just do not need any distractions. Praising God for the blessing. In quietness and confidence is our strength (Isaiah 30:15). Reading the Word, prayer, and meditation are essential. It is in this time, we really need to hear from God. And will require time with him and him alone.

No matter how many times we may fall by the wayside or lose our way, we always find our way back to Him. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. His grace is sufficient.

Take it from me, life can be a struggle on the regular. And sometimes it can be difficult just to pray. But never stop because simple prayers will get you through the day. It can be as simple as, “Thank You Lord.” Persevere and watch how the power of prayer will manifest in your life.

You may have been through some things. God brought you a mighty long way. Aren’t you glad He didn’t leave you where he found you? How amazing! Praise God. He is simply AMAZING!

No matter what life brings on any given day, never stop giving God thanks. Our God is faithful. Be grateful.

Be blessed! – JD

Someone’s Fighting A Battle You’ve Already Won By Grace. Don’t Take Life For Granted. Be Thankful For It

Won By Grace JoaynnLife can be a struggle. And at times it can be difficult to get through the day when faced with situations that leave you feeling empty, weary, and hopeless.

We can never know what a person is going through when looking in from the outside. We don’t know how many times they have prayed to God and feel their prayers are not being answered.

Nobody knows how many tears they’ve cried, how many times they’ve cried out to God for help. How much anguish, both spiritually and mentally, they have faced when their heart is grieved beyond comprehension.

Yes, we may see the beautiful pictures and smiles that tell a different story. But in the inside they are hurting. While the world never needs to know all your secrets. It should be kept between you and God. Never judge a book by its cover.

Each of us are going through something. Be hopeful in the Lord. Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him (Job 13:15). No matter what troubles you, know God is a healer. Whatever you’re going through, know God is with you. He will never leave you or forsake you. Life may be hard. Say to yourself, “Yet will I trust you God.”

God hears the prayers of the righteous. Prayers of the righteous avail much. Pray without ceasing. Pray for everyone.

Be blessed! – JD

Psalm 37:25 “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” (AKJV)
