Concurrently, battling a pity party growing in myself right now, but there is no need to feel angry or bitterness in regards to my past situations. The Lord God knows my spirit and He knows yours. He knows I am easily swindled and moved to envy by beautiful faces and images of happy families and …
Have you ever felt like you were a nobody in the eyes of God? Like God viewed you as someone to overlook, someone to give scraps off His table to, someone He gives an after thought to. If you have ever felt this way, or going through a long desert period, recognize it is okay …
Sometimes, it really does feel like these rough seasons are here to stay. That there is no silver lining in sight. Your circumstances have pummeled you to the ground and you cannot find another reason to smile or go on. But I challenge you my friend, to not look beyond what you see, but to take a great harsh look at your reality. To see how the Lord God is working in your situation and how He is highlighting the unrecognized blessings in your life in new ways!
Lately, the responsibilities of my life have been doubling up and it seems like I cannot get a moment to breathe. However, the way I respond is entirely different, no longer am’I running from my fears and coping with negative practices.

Which do you believe more of people’s opinions or God’s Word? We all have different church and life experiences, but thank God that His Word is the ultimate decider.
A soft, friendly reminder to always be thankful towards God! We can miss and take for granted our day to day blessings. Make sure your thankfulness is sincere.
