😞My family and I been going through a lot since 2013. It is now 2018. Life has hard, full of trials one after another. Some of them harder then others. My faith has been greatly tested. I feel exhausted mentally, physically and emotionally. My family has has loved ones pass away, along with a variety of health issues.😥
🙁Honestly it appears that a lot of the strongest Christians I know, have been facing major battles the past couple of years. For a while it made me really mad at God. I realized it majorly affected my relationship with him. It’s funny how when I was going through the major heath issues my faith wasn’t tested. Yet when my loved ones are it was…😐
🤔However, I’ve never stop trusting that God has a plan, a purpose. 🗨Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. God is a big God 🗨Revelations 1:8. I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” He can bring beauty out of ashes and rainbows from every storm. He is good! He is love! God gave us Jesus and the Holy Spirt. He wants you to have: health; favor; peace; joy; healing; and so forth. 🗨John 10:10 The Devil comes to steal kill and destroy; but I come to bring life and to bring it more abundantly!🎉
🎧 I have been listening many pastor’s sermons lately. The list: John Hege, Joseph Prince, Kenneth Copland, Gloria Copland, Kevin Wright, and Jamie Adams. I’ve been praying and worshiping non stop. I relized to night everything I’ve studying latley have topic. Rest in God… The sermons / teachings are about focusing on the word of God. To do this we: read our bible; we worship; and we praise; thus letting go of your problems. Easier said then done⁉️
🛐Tonight I was asking God how is that possible when so much is going on. I keep asking for miracles and seeing that them not being done. I keep me going in circles and I’m just getting more frustrated and angry. So I was praying tonight I heard God say to me〰️ In this order.
👉1. “When when your family was asking for a miracle what did they do?” I thought about it for a minute and remember they put headphones on me and had constant praise and worship music going. Then I heard God say. 🗨 Romans 10:17 Faith comes by hearing and hearing comes from the word of Christ.😀
👉3. ” Play praise and worship music.” I asked God how when I don’t have a radio. < They don’t work well in my apartment for some reason> Then I remembered the iHeartRadio app on my phone. however, but last timeI checked there were no Christian radio satiions to find. Tonight however I found K-LOVE at the top of the list. <Along with various individual artists 👨🎤👩🎤 now listed.> So I immediately hit play and started praying and worshiping with the K-LOVE music.🎶
🎼There was song after song dealing with the situations that I’ve been facing along with my family. <In my own interpretation.> Songs about when you don’t feel God moving know that He is in the background. When you don’t feel His presence know that He is still there. Songs that remind us of who God is. That He sent His son Jesus for us, so that we may live.🗨 John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that whosoever believeth believeth in him shall have everlasting life. Songs about what God wants for us. <As I’ve already said above.> Songs about praising Him even though the moutain is tall and the waves hurt. when we can’t see where we’re going but He is still there with us. It reminded me of the story in the Bible of Jesus calming the storm. Calming the Storm. It talks about a mighty storm that#Jesus calmed with words. 🗨Matthew 8:23-27, 🗨Mark 4:35-41. and 🗨Luke 8:22-25.🕊
👉3. 🎭I was crying I was laughing and I was praising God. After about twenty minutes I heard clear. “When you were younger and sick or in pain what would you do?” I would honestly try to do anything not to think about what was going on and try to focus on something else. If it was close to bedtime I would go to bed if it was during the day I would try to focus on anything and everything except for what was going on with my body. When there was a bad situation and it was obvious the devil was trying to put a stop to what God was doing I would rebuke the devil and keep moving forward on the task at hand.✅
👉4. “Do that, stop dwelling on what is going on and start focusing on what I have done and who I am.” 🗨 2nd Timothy 1:7 I do not have a spirit of fear but of love power and a sound mind. Then song played I cannot remember who it was by because I was so wrapped up in the words. It was talking about no matter how much we send no matter how weary we are we are called to cone to the table, take a seat next to the savior. Jesus and be set free!✔😆
🤳The song made me think of communion. 🗨1st Corinthians 11:17-34 How when we sit next to Jesus and we drink of his blood and weu eat of his flesh spiritually. We will be renewed, we will be refreshed, we will be healed and we will be set free from our iniquities. I wish I knew the name of this song and who the artist was. The song and this night has really blessed me.😇
👂I’m now sharing this with you because I know somewhere out there someone needs to hear this too. 👉Take your eyes off your situation, whatever is going on in your life and focus on God. 👀 He is a big God, He is a loving Father, and He is here for you. He wants you to be healthy, whole, blessed and covered in favor.🗨Revelations 1:8. I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”🙌
🙏Hopefully you understand what I am saying and that the speaks to you in the same way I needed Jesus to speak to me. Honestly I wish she talked to me clearly this way all the time but that’s not how it usually works.🤷♂️
—Sometimes songs speak to your heart more than anything. During the hard times especially. God is so good! He answers our prayers!
💞God bless you today and always!
