TODAY, decide to cast ALL your CARES, WORRIES, CONCERNS, and ANXIETIES on the LORD, because HE truly cares for YOU and loves YOU unconditionally.
Happy sweet 16 to my sister, Jayla Rose Jackson!!!! I still remember the day that she was born. And after being the only child for 10 years…..I'm still so grateful that God saw fit to give me a sister! If she's not making me laugh until my side hurts, she's encouraging me to continue to pursue my dreams and not give up on what God has promised me! I love her. I'm proud of her. And I can't wait to see ALL the amazing things the LORD does for and through her!!!
"....but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
PROMOTION comes from GOD alone. NO man can give it or take it away. They are only conduits of God's plan. Live "as unto the LORD!"
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].
Celebrate what God is doing in other people's lives, but also rejoice in what He's doing in and through yours!
Even though the opportunities to draw comparisons are exponential right now----HELLO, SOCIAL MEDIA----if you are constantly comparing yourself to this one or that one; focusing on what they are accomplishing, you are simultaneously taking your eyes off GOD and your calling/assignment. And that's exactly what the enemy wants. We must never forget that the Lord has called each of us to our own unique race. A race saturated with much fruit, entrusted with the great commission, and guaranteed an eternal reward that nothing in this world could compare to. So today, if comparison starts to scream for your attention, pay it no mind. Celebrate what God is doing in other people's lives, but also rejoice in what He's doing in and through yours.....even if it seems small/insignificant.....I assure you that to God it is not.
Whether it be an audience of one or many.....God has entrusted YOU with a level of influence. Use it wisely.
What has God put in your heart that you haven't acted on yet? Somebody in need is waiting on YOU to be obedient.
"For He SATISFIES the longing soul, and FILLS the hungry soul with GOODNESS.” Psalms 107:9
