Things aren't always as they appear. Sometimes what seems to be the end is really just a new beginning. Like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly.
I remember a time when it felt like nothing could go right. The whole world appeared to be teamed up against me. But I kept on moving forward, even when I couldn't tell exactly where I was going.
all the yesterdays weighing me down and holding me back. It is true that if you live in the past you cant see the present, or if you cant move one from the past you will never have a bright future. It’s time for a new beginning. I will stop carrying those heavy burdens around anymore. I will Choose to forgive those who have hurt me and praise God for what He’s doing in my life today. If nothing else, I’ll start thanking Him for the beautiful sunrise. Thank him for restoring me , even if you don’t see it yet. Just like this verse says, you will be as strong and secure as a tall oak tree, displaying His splendor all the days of your life!
“Provide for those who grieve...a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor”(Isaiah 61:3, NIV)

IT WILL PASS........

Every trial, every adversity is a defining moment in our lives. Those difficulties can either hold us back, or they can propel us forward into the good things God has for us. We decide how those things will affect our lives by the attitude we choose. If we choose to be bitter and upset constantly complaining about what's happening, we aren't going to get very far. But if we choose to have a positive attitude of faith, if we choose to find joy even in the midst of our trials, we can move forward in His peace and joy. Today, make up your mind that no matter what comes your way, no matter how long it takes, or impossible it looks, you are in it for the long haul. Don't give up your passion! Press past discouragement because victory is already on the way. Are you in a difficult season right now? Maybe you have plenty of reasons to be sour and live down and discouraged. Perhaps you're struggling in your finances or you don't feel well physically. Maybe a relationship is giving you trouble. It would be easy to settle there and think, "You know what? Forget it. It's not going to work out." But, I've found that in order to be everything God has created us to be, we've got to dig our heels in and say, "I have come too far to stop now. It may be tough. It may be taking a long time. I may not understand it but I do know this: my God is still on the Throne and what He promised He will bring to pass."

Forgiveness is not easy.....

there are times that forgiveness doesn't come easy. people that offend you, reject you, hurt you, are the first people you want to seek vengeance on. your emotions are raw, and you would like to take matters into your own hands. But i have learned that God is a god of justice, he will fight your battles he is your lawyer and will seek justice on your behalf. I have seen this in my life. God fought a battle for me, but he only went to war on my behalf when i let go and forgave the people that offended me. my Friends the first thing you want is to get even i know i understand, but give it to god, his justice is more powerful then your own.

You, may be required to do a hard thing, but God has given you the grace for the season that you're in.

That difficulty is not going to last forever. In the hard times, you have to keep reminding yourself that a reward is coming. God has promised that He will give you beauty for your ashes. He will pay you back for the sacrifices that you have made.Be encouraged today because your payday may be right around the corner. Keep doing the right thing even when it's hard, even when you don't see change. God is still working in your situation. Keep praying, keep hoping and keep believing because God wants to pour out His favor and blessing on every area of your life.

"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work" (2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV).

Faith is Confidence in GOD

Confidence and faith are virtually synonymous sometimes they can be interchanged without losing the context of what is being said at all I can give a long fancy definition of faith, but let us boil it down FAITH IS CONFIDENCE IN GOD. in simple terms faith is the act of knowing that if god say s he will do something he will do it. Even it does not look like he is doing it right now, it will come to pass in his timing if we remain confident in him.

blessings my friends, and don't give up, hold on to God and his strength he will help you through difficult times.

By his grace....

i asked god, and he did not turn away. he did answer me but the answer i received was not what i expected. I'm surprised, baffled and lost. I do know this though, that God's will for me is perfect. I will follow his path, and choose to see this change as a positive stepping stone. god's grace is going to be there at every turn and corners of this new change. His grace is power, his grace will give me the strength, wisdom and favor to accomplish what i cant do in my own strength. It is gods way of letting me know he is in control, if i want his perfect will for my life then i must follow and abide by his word. I wont lie, it is difficult, scary and overwhelming. But i will step out in faith and allow god to guide me. Wish me luck my friends a new chapter is being introduced in my life. The first page so far is blank, but the first couple of words i know are these:

"but whatever I am now, it is all because god poured out his special favor on me and not with9out results. for i have worked harder than any of the others yet it was not I but GOD who was working through me by his grace" (1COR: 15:10)

I will keep you posted my friends, god bless you all and please whatever is going in your life, by faith let GOD empower you to walk through that difficulty.
