Setbacks

Recovering from pain and disappointments of any kind is not something that just happens to some people and not to others.  It is a decision!  You make a decision to let go and move on.  You gather up the fragments and give them to Jesus and He will make sure nothing is wasted. 12 When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” ~ John 6:12

You refuse to think about what you have lost or what you have not, but instead you inventory what you have left and what you have now and begin using it.  Not only can you recover, but you can also be used to help others recover and pass along the lessons you have learned.  Be a living example of a confident person who always recovers from setbacks no matter how difficult or frequent they are.  You can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens you because you are an overcomer in Him. 

Have a blessed day in the presence of the Lord!  God bless you!  and remember God loves you more than anything or anyone in this world ever could.  Put your faith and trust in Him for He will not hold anything good back from His children.  His promises are for everyone!

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!

    Thanks for the lovely reminder about the story of the boy who gave his 5 loaves and 2 fish to Jesus – and the way the Lord multiplied one boy’s lunch to feed multitudes, glorify His Father and prove that He is the God of more than enough!
