Sometimes…

I am just so overcome with thankfulness that I just have to shout out THANK YOU JESUS for how you’ve changed me…this is one of those moments!!

I pray for blessings to everyone that reads this. If anyone is struggling with something at this very moment, reach out to Jesus…He can change you too. He is faithful and He is trustworthy. He wants to help each of us, you need only to ask Him. 

A gift from my Heavenly Father

I had an absolutely surreal experience on my drive home last Saturday that I just have to share. I was spending some time with the Lord just thanking Him for everything that He is doing in my life right now when something really awesome happened.  You see, I was still suffering from some old emotions and baggage that I was carrying with me from when I was overweight. Even though I had been able to let go of a lot of my old thoughts of being worthless and not being good enough for anything or for anyone, I was still carrying some of those with me. These unexplainable waves of emotion just started falling over me. He told me that despite all the feelings I’ve had in the past, I do have worth. He told me that I’m needed, I’m loved, I’m valuable, that He has a purpose for me and that I AM His child! I could literally almost feel myself wrapped up in the biggest hug ever.

Thank you Father for breaking down those walls and old mindsets that hold me back from becoming the person you intended me to be. Thank you for showing me that through my faith in Christ, I am reborn – the old me has gone away. Thank you for reminding me that I am your child – a child of the one true King!

Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.

Galatians 3:26 For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

His blessings are new each day…

I had been praying and asking the Lord for guidance with my daily Bible reading after seeming to not really connect with any of the reading I had been doing. I felt lead to start reading the Gospels starting with Matthew. What a blessing that has been!! Every morning I am ending my reading feeling completely blessed as new things are jumping off the page that never had before. Praise the Lord for His blessings and answered prayers!! He always gives us exactly what we need at exactly the time we need it! Listen to those nudges from the Holy Spirit, He is leading you to knowledge and truth. His blessings for us are new each day.

John 16:13 “However, when He, the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth”
