Praise the Lord! It is always an extreme pleasure to be able to come into the presence of God. We thank him and honor him for allowing us to live and see another blessed day. When we behold the beauty that is around us, that brings us in connection with the father and his great power. When we behold the different races of people that he created and placed on the face of this earth, we are a witness to the manifold power of God. So having that in mind, we need to always be mindful that if God created this wonderful world that we live in and he also allowed for us to live, move and have our being, than he is in control of our lives as a whole. It isn't just when things are what we view as "good times" that he is in control. He is in control even when our lives are out of control. In the bible Jesus clearly exemplifies that "I know the thoughts that I have towards you saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you a future and an expected end (Jeremiah 29:11)." So, when you are tempted to want to give up and feel that things are not going to get better, meditate on the word of God. Let it saturate your mind and heart because the word of God states "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7)." I love you in Jesus name and pray your continual strength, growth and transformation in the Lord.
In His Name,
