A season of drought can actually drive you to greater devotion. It can bring you to a place of asking God to “do it again.” To plead with God to come through in the ways that only he can. But it doesn’t happen naturally. It’s a choice — and the choice is yours.
Things will happen so we will remember who holds our hands in time of trouble. When we are faced with hardship we also get a clearer picture of who truly got our backs. Sometimes we need a wake up call just to get out of situations that are hindering our growth and we are to blind to see at the moment. You looking but you don’t see what’s in front of you until something moves that cloud away from your eyes and everything becomes clear. We don’t like trouble in our lives but know your coming out stronger, better and a whole lot wiser. God bless you and he will strengthen you through 😇💖
Have you ever praised Jesus one week only to ignore Him the next? Perhaps it did not even take a week. Maybe it was a few days or a few hours or, dare I say, just a few minutes. We, and I am including me, are quick to offer praise when Jesus is being who we think He should be. Yet we are quick to question Him when the circumstances of our lives are not how we wish them to be. When we do that, we are no different than the people who laid down palm branches to honor Him one day and spit on Jesus just a few days later.
Many times we feel that because we are believers in God’s Word that nothing is going to happen to us. Also many unbelievers feel what’s the point to believe when it seems like there more problems for the righteous. Yes we are constantly going through trials and tribulations and many will tell us to give up just like Job’s wife. But we must hold on to our faith and know the difference is we have a heavenly Father that is there and will see us through. He can and will bring you out of these trials and tribulations if you don’t give up and turn your back on him. Remember the times when all had look impossible and you wanted to throw in the towel but that voice told you to hold on a bit longer and you did and now your here. Well today I say continue to hold on.
We have to learn how to respect the difference of each other. Let’s learn and understand why we are different and don’t be so quick to condemned others. Who said your way is the right and only way? No one put you in charge of others. Discrimination of any kind is wrong and hurts. Let’s work together and make things better for our future not a place of more hate and ignorance from not understanding and being closed minded. Only God can and will judge us.
Why so many double standard? Rules apply to all not just the one looking to be pardon. Excuse me if I can’t overlooked the faults that you clearly think don’t matter, until I perform the same act. Oh those double standards, you think your better at the top. Says who? I’m heading there too, so either we share it or you step a side. All these double standards, will turn me into a rebel, who once ran from trouble but now stand and demand to be recognized for who I am. So keep your double standards, because they don’t apply to me.

http://bible.com/431/col.3.13.GNBDK Be tolerant with one another and forgive one another whenever any of you has a complaint against someone else. You must forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven you.
If this is not one of the hardest things to do, then I don’t know what is. When you deal with deceitful people and they hurt you on purpose and you have to find it in your heart to forgive. When deep down inside you just want to kill them for the wrong they have caused you. It’s through faith and a lot of praying when you just have to stop and say just maybe this happened in order to move me into a better place. Perhaps everything does happens for a reason and this is my season for change. You find relief and just say Lord fight my battles and provide me to the strength to go on. Thank you Lord for being able to look over my imperfections and allow me to do the same.
http://bible.com/406/psa55.22 Give your worries to the Lord, and he will care for you. He will never let those who are good be defeated.
We must learn to pray and trust that God is in control. Faith building is necessary to make it through. God is looking out for you as he loves his children just as we love our children and don’t want any harm or heartaches to come to them, he treats us the same way.
Matthew 6:14-15 CEVDCUS06
If you forgive others for the wrongs they do to you, your Father in heaven will forgive you. But if you don’t forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
The one thing that so many of us struggle with being able to forgive those that done us wrong, either physically or emotionally. The bible talks about forgiving others as we ourselves are not perfect and if we screw up because of anger or deceit we would want others to forgive us, yet what we want for ourselves we don’t give to others. Forgiveness is also a form of healing for our soul, which is needed once your hurt. Without forgiveness it like reopening a wound over and over, leading to infection. That how hurt gets us, we ponder on the situation and find blame at times even in ourselves, which can be just as destructive, as this will lead to a self-esteem issue and depression. Also hurt can lead you to look for revenge and this becomes a cycle of more pain for more people. Someone has to be strong enough to stop the cycle and start the healing process, let that person be you.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for YOU, Revelation 3:8 I have set before you an open door and no man can shut. Look back and thank God. Look forward and trust God. Look around and serve God. Look within and find God! Who wouldn’t forward it!!! God closes doors no man can open and God opens doors no man can close. If you need God to open some doors for you… send this to ten people and if you don’t need God to open some doors for you, just delete it. If you are not ashamed of God pass it on.
