Decide 


It’s been a while before I’ve had a chance to blog.  God has blessed.  I now am a homeowner, he’s blessed my son with a reliable vehicle and the opportunity to go to a private school.  Lastly, this past week I interviewed for a big promotion with my current employer.  Needless to say, life has been busy!

With all the things God has added unto me, I also now have added responsibility, additional expenses, additional work that needs to be completed.  I’ve experienced major life changes the last 6 weeks.  I prayed for God to bless, but I wonder if I was truly ready when he did bless me?  Quite frankly, it all feels overwhelming at times.  I’ve had to pray to God for help to manage all of the new things I am experiencing.

To be honest, I have also found myself questioning the blessings I’ve received.  Will God provide for me to sustain a new home?  Am I qualified and capable to perform for this new role, others may not think so?  When will he provide for all these needs?

After I go through this brief time of questions, I remember the word where it says in Philippians 4:19, “God shall supply all my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”.  Therefore, if God blessed me with a home and a child in private school, he will supply the finances for them.  The bible also says in 2 Corinthians 9:8, “God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”  I can check that question off too, since God has led me to a promotion, he will not leave me to fend for myself.  He will be with me.  I’m reminded of Matthew 6 that states that I should simply focus on his kingdom (what He’s told me to do) and all the things I needs will be added unto me, so I do not need to worry about what I cannot control.

I don’t have all the answers right now.  I also don’t know why I must work extended hours or why my financial blessing did not arrive sooner.  What I do know is that I’ve decided to be thankful and praise God for what He has done and what He’s doing.  I’ve decided to be joyful even when working late.  I’ve decided to be joyful even when my bank account isn’t where I want it to be.  I’ve decided!

We’ve got to realize that the blessing will come, but so will tests and trials. The words clearly tells us that in the book of James.  We can feel sorry for ourselves during these times, blame others, quit or wonder if the promise we heard from God is true.  It’s in these times, I believe God is testing us to see if we’re ready to go to the next level.  Will we praise Him in good and difficult times?  No matter what we may not have or prayer that may not have been answered yet, He is still God and is worthy of praise.

My prayer today is that you also decide to be joyful and praise Him regardless of your present circumstances.  He hasn’t left you. Nor will your prayer go unanswered. It’s just test time. The teacher cannot answer questions during the test, can He?  Stand strong in the Lord and in His word.

PASS THE TEST!

The Process

I’ve been on many road trips over the past several years.  I’ve traveled from Minnesota to Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas and Texas to name a few.  On the trips that are the within about 8 hours by car, I normally choose to drive to save money.  I don’t really mind driving, but learned that the first hour or two into the drive, I become extrem...

Victory Comes with a Cost


I was recently at my son’s basketball tournament in Chicago, IL.  My son and his teammates are a good group of players, but each of them have one or two weaknesses.  In past tournaments we would do really well.  We would earn the right to play in the semi-final game, but then would fall short.  Surely this time in Chicago would be different....

Moving Forward with God  

Recently, I was studying Genesis 12 & 13.  It is the beginning of Abram’s, later Abraham’s, journey with God.  Genesis 12:1 reads, “The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.””  That was quite a great call the...

Is it God or You? 

As we walk with God and ask Him to lead our path, we know to walk by faith.  We ask for him for direction and move accordingly.  However, there were times when I would ask for direction, but I didn’t quite get the result I was looking for.  I knew God was telling me to move that way, but I didn’t understand why it felt like a s...

All Things God Works for the Good

On this Resurrection weekend, God has had me to just stop and meditate on him.  Jesus, the Son of Man was sacrificed and slain for the crime of blasphemy.  He claimed to be the Son of God.  Little did the men know at the time, that He was telling the truth...

Blind Faith

“Now faith is the confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”, Hebrews 11:1 .  “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7….These are two of the most popular scriptures on faith in the bible.  In my opinion, having faith is one of the most difficult aspects walking with God.  I pray and ask G...

Do you trust Him?

I decided to make God Lord of my life in August of 2016.  Ever since then, my life has been directed by Him.  I have found surrendering control to Him to be challenging at times.  Even the times I know God has told me to do something, sometimes I wonder why or if I Him heard right?  Have you ever been there?  The bible says in Isaiah 55:8, ...

Are You Willing to Sacrifice?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16….This is probably the most well-known bible verse today.  However, do we really know what God did?  The bible tells us that God “gave” his only son, Jesus,...
