Good morning, my dear sweet friend,
It is my deepest prayer that you woke this morning feeling rested, refreshed, and radically blessed. Our scripture tells us “To give thanks in all circumstances.” I believe that God is whispering to you right this moment that he wants you to know your life is not over. He has a plan and a purpose for you, and he wants you to discover a life greater than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams” (Ephesians 3:20).
You and I can stay stuck dwelling on negative thoughts and living in worry or fear, or you can believe God has something greater for you. Here is the key: You have to take the first step. We must rejoice. Scripture tells us to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Next, pray continually. And then, give thanks in all circumstances. There are always praises amongst the pains. Three steps to a hope-filled, joyful life. Rejoice! Pray! Thanksgiving! By faith, you make progress one step at a time. God has promised to do his part, but you have an important part to play as well. Walk the path that God has lit for you; you will never lose your way. Loving you always, Linda
