Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.
Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.
Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor, their righteousness endures forever;
their horn will be lifted high in honor.
The wicked will see and be vexed,
they will gnash their teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
Psalm 112:4-10 NIV
To get where we need to go, to be where God has intended us to be, we must push past our fears like a sheer curtain.
We must embrace our roles like we would the hug of a child or elder.
We must seek out knowledge like we would a treasured keepsake, or desired financial wealth.
We must be as passionate about expressing God’s Love, reflecting His Light, and following the teachings of His son Jesus—as we are about wanting to live another day.
I am working each day to be a better follower of Christ and a better servant and ambassador of God so that my family, my unborn children, and generations yet unborn are blessed abundantly—so that complete strangers are blessed abundantly, because I know it’s not just about me.
When we give God our all, He gives us all we need, and He provides for those we love. Heck, God provides even when we are living mediocre. He provides for where we are mentally, for what our heart reveals. He helps us deal with what’s before us and reminds us not to worry about the past, for it’s done, nor should we worry about the future because we have enough to deal with present day.
Stand tall and firm in the understanding that no matter what, God is always going to do what only He can do. He’s never going in hiding. He won’t be defeated. He won’t go on vacation and put you on hold. He is ever-present and a force with no equal. We are made in His spiritual image, borrowing these vessels to have a unique experience and to learn lessons.
Don’t let the temporariness of this life scare you into not living it freely, boldly, and lovingly as God intends. You’re being held back because you keep holding on to the restraints. Let go and let God show you the way and take care of you along this amazing journey!
Father, as You continue to mold me I continue to work on bettering myself, strengthening myself, exposing myself to the unknown, and reaching out to others who I can help and to those whose wisdom can help me. I look forward to the experiences and the knowledge that will come from me pushing past fear and doubt as I take each step on the path You have set for me.
May I continue to be blessed all the days of my life, and may my family and loved ones for generations be blessed. Your name I praise today and always. Amen.
