Let God's promises overtake your problems. Years ago Lawrence and I were given a little book called God's Promises. It was filled with scriptures for what you might be going through or what you might be believing God to do for you or your loved ones. I learned very early in my Christian walk that God's word is his will and that when you pray God's word you know you are praying for his will to be done in your life. (Thank you Pastor Jeff Klingenberg!) So all these years I've prayed them, confessed them and believed them. God has never failed to keep his promises. It may not be how you throught it would come to pass, but it's always better than what you thought. We live in a fallen world filled with problems but God's has a promise that will overtake every one of them. Whatever problems you are facing today find God's promise for it, pray it, say it, believe it and get ready to be awed by an AWESOME GOD! Love you all!
When you have no choice. Sometimes there are some things that you just have to do, like it or not. Whenever Lawrence became ill there were many things I had to face and do and I would often tell myself, Sherry you have no choice. In the past 2 years every day there have been things I never imagined taking care of on my own but I say to myself, you have no choice. Yet this morning I realized I did have a choice in the midst of my circumstances and always will. I had the choice not to do it alone. Every day we have the choice to invite and ask God to do life with us. He wants to be right there in every circumstance, always our helper, our friend and our counselor. When I thought I was certainly going to drop dead when I walked into the church for Lawrence's funeral to asking God to help me fix the toilet God was right there beside me leading, guiding and helping me. All I did was ask. It's the most important choice I make every day. I may not have a choice but I never have to do it alone! Wow! Isn't God good?
Did you know the Bible says what you say has a great impact on your life. It actually says death and life are in the power of the tongue. That's a pretty profound thing, wouldn't you say? One of my daily scripture confessions is Psalm 141:3 asking the Lord to set a guard over my mouth. Sure sometimes I blow it but believe me I'm so much better with his help. May our words be filled with life today! What say you?
The world says, if it feels good do it. God says, if I say it do it (no
matter how you feel) and it will feel good. I was asked many years ago
to what did I attribute my faith. I thought for a minute and gave this
simple answer. I just believed what God said, I did it and it worked.
What's God telling you to do today? Go ahead, you've got this!
