I was led to this message for everyone to reflect on. You can have victory in your life despite the struggles that you face when you understand that God is working all things out for your good and His purpose for your life. Too many times believers feel that God is unaware or unconcerned with their painful trials, but nothing could be further from the truth. He has a divine eternal reason for each and every thing that you endure. He has a timing for it all and if you belong to Christ, it is all part of the perfect plan. Have a wonderful day in His presence. Love you all in Christ.
Understandably, it is easier to trust God when things are going well. How much more difficult is it to believe as God allows unfair trials of every kind to happen when He has the power to stop them. How can He look down on the suffering of His people as seemingly He remains silent. But is that really true?
That is a question we all need to ask ourselves. Is it okay with us to take the good from God and then turn away from Him in times of trouble? Does God owe us anything? It is by His grace, unmerited favor, that we receive all the good that we have. We are in His hands and He has determined the best way to get us from where we are to where He is. He does not look away from us for a second. We always have hope in the midst of the darkest storms because Christ lives to intercede for us. He commands His angels to guard our path and guide our steps. We are not left to fend for ourselves when darkness comes. With Christ, we have all the hope and peace needed to get through the pain as God works through it to reveal more of Himself to us. No battle is too big for Him because He has authority over everything. The outcome is always in His hands and His will.
When you grow in faith, you get to a place of victory in your life because you know that you do not have to understand God’s ways in order to trust that He always is working for your best interest. For that reason, you are able to have joy through the many troubles in this world because Christ has overcome the world and your enemies have been rendered powerless to destroy your future. Just because you can’t see how God is working in your life through your trials does not mean that He is doing nothing. Heaven and earth are being moved by your God who has already determined the outcome of your situation.
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!

Honey you don’t even know how very much i needed to see this today.. life is really upside down right now and I am trying so hard to trust God, but am failing miserably. I know that He has a plan and can say the words and think the thoughts, but in my heart I am a scared little child who feels alone and lost. Thank you for continuing to be a good and faithful servant and sending these messages to the people that God wants to hear them.. love you tons hon

God bless you!
AMEN again! It reminds me of the poem Footprints in the Sand…. especially when we feel all alone, because we only see one set of footprints, that God has not left us, but is carrying us through to the other side of our trouble. I love your messages!
God bless you and thank you ~~~~ ❤
Thank you so much.. If you only knew… God bless you sis!
