Let Hope Rise

Remember this morning I posted the scripture “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14”?

Well I’ve been waiting on him 8 months for something. EIGHT MONTHS!! 8 months when most days I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt He was gonna come through for me and some days I felt like maybe He didn’t hear my prayers at all and through all of those days I still picked up His word and reminded myself that He is God and will move Heaven and Earth on my behalf if need be to come to my rescue. 

And today He did… and all I can do is cry and give thanks over and over because it’s not something small it’s something HUGE. And it didn’t come in the way I expected (and it usually doesn’t) but it happened and is happening and He is faithful and that’s all that matters. Thank you Father! This heart is dancing at your faithfulness. 

And they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony

Choose Joy

When we start counting our JOY and stop counting our SORROWS the Greater One who lives in us can start a mighty work in our lives. More of Him and less of us always equals the power of God being unleashed on the scene of every circumstance.

Why in the world would we count all things, even the hard ones, JOY?

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete,  NOT LACKING ANYTHING. James 1:2-4 NIV
