MIDST OF THE DARKNESS!

Matthew 10:27 “What I tell you now, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear!”

You have heard the saying; it is always darkest before the dawn. This saying is equally true when it comes to preparing your life message. Your life message comes as a result of those dark and trying times. David told us “Even when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. David understood that the valley was a part of his walk with God. God is with you during the time of darkness just as HE is with you on the mountaintop. Granted you would prefer that you just stay on the mountaintop. Nonetheless, it is during the time of darkness that God is able to test you and prove you. God is able to prove to the world that you have learned the lessons to trust in HIM. Job went through a great trial and it was at the end of the trial that his relationship with God grew because of a conversation he had with God. It is during your time of trial that you are most willing to take the time to hear God’s voice. Hearing God’s voice will change your life. When you hear God’s voice, you will either be like Jonah who ran away, or you will be like Elijah who obeyed and saw God work mightily through him. Those who you share your life message with will not have seen the time of darkness where God spoke with you, but the impact of your going through the trial will still affect them. It does not matter how much you hate them, it is during the difficult times that God reveals HIMSELF to you. Rather than complain when God brings difficult times into your life, you should rejoice and thank God that HE is preparing a life message in you. You may think that God has already taken you through enough trials. It is not easy to go through a trial. It is often a lonely time in which you feel that your life has no purpose. However, it is during this time that you are ready to hear the still small voice of God. If you do not stop focusing on yourself during your time of darkness, God will have to leave you in the trial longer to show you the truth HE desires you to learn. When you see that you are going through a trial, it is time that you change your perspective from focusing on yourself and your problems to focusing on God and what HE is trying to teach you through this. You must add virtue to your life. You must put on the mind of God. Allow God to guide you. Now you will be ready to hear and obey God.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
