When I started my blog it was a documentation of my life with Jesus on this Earth. My family and my stories. Walking this journey hand in hand with my Savior through the good and the bad. Even the longest and hardest days when I feel he is not near I have hope. Hope is this life here on Earth and Hope in eternal life with him in Heaven.
Sometimes I catch myself wanting to blog like others, sharing the funny stories that I read and put smiles on my face. Taking pictures of what I wore each week to share my sense of or I should say lack of style. Nonetheless it is all amazing and wonderful but each time I start to share that God tugs at my heart of what his desire are in me. Embrace his plans for me not my own.
My Hope after the storms. The stories of my life that have changed me forever. The not so good moments that always seem to arise and I overcome only by the grace of God. I have encountered experiences in my life that I pray my children will never see in their lifetime. Each trial and suffering that comes along my way I hear God whisper my dearest child, you will rise and you will follow me. Do not grow weary and want to give up. Each trial that you face will be harder than the last but I am with you and I will carry you and oh the blessings I will pour on you. Just have faith. Embrace.
For years that was hard to grasp and some days I would think this would just be easier if I walked away. Each trial has been harder but I have followed Jesus through the storm. It hasn’t been easy but I find it easier as the years go by that following him and his comfort is easier than facing the storm with out an umbrella or life jacket.
I have Hope. I am Joyful. My life isn’t easy. My marriage is hard. Being a mother is amazing but at the same time the hardest job of my life. But at the end of the day I can count my blessings. God didn’t promise us it would be easy but he did promise us blessings along the way and the ultimate blessing of all. Embrace his unfailing love.
Have hope and put your faith in God this day. No matter what you are going through you have Jesus cheering you on and wanting you to fight. You have a sister in christ that is praying for you. Don’t become angry or bitter. Trust me that doesn’t always work out. Pray.Pray. Pray. Build your communications with him and strengthen your relationship with the Lord.
Do not try to take on the journey alone. There will be hardships along the way and doing it alone can lead you to some terrible places. Depend on God for his strength in you. He created you. He has the perfect plan for you. Seek his wisdom and he will lead you the way.
You know that you learn to endure by having your faith tested. James 1-3 (cev)
Give thanks to Lord that he can bring good about of everything, especially the bad. Thank God for the strength, endurance, and growth that you will gain by having the faith during troubles and the courage to fight.
