You know those first ten to twenty seconds when you first wake up in the morning. Those first seconds of total freedom. You are aware of your life, your beingness; but you aren’t yet aware of all the “other” going-on’s in your life. In those first grateful seconds, we are the most thankful that we’ve made it through our night, and we’ve reached our glorious morning. The morning that is only gifted to us by our Lord. These moments of perfect peace.
I am writing this as an encouragement to you all, to myself, and to anyone in the world who may stumble across this and need in. #prayer Lord, let this reach who it needs to reach, in the exact moment they need it. # Each day we must make a conscious effort to live in that place of peace. That same peace we have when we first awake should be a feel we should have all throughout our day.
You’re asking me how is that possible. Jesus made this possible when He died on the cross. He eliminated sin and as an added bonus, He took the keys of death and hell from the enemy. He gave us the eternal victory. But that came at a cost. God wants us to be our best. So we have our nights. Our nights are our test. They prune us and refine us. They shape us, if we allow them to, and mold us into being more like the image of Jesus. Selfless.
Our nights are our lessons. But God promises us that He’ll never leave us or forsake us. And He promises that He is always with us. So whomever this is for, this is simply to say that whatever night you are in right now, just know that God is with you. That night can only last but so long, because eventually morning is coming, and with that morning comes the joy, So stay in that place of peace. Rest in know that nights are only temporary. So why give a temporary thing any power of your peace? Amen.
OMG, it’s been forever, it feels like. I’ve been very busy with work and when I get home, I feel depleted. And I have been traveling a lot. But I am finding a balance to it all now. At least I feel like I am. That’s a good thing. I can focus on writing more – not just on here, but for these book projects I am trying to get out to you. I am also putting together some concepts for articles I may want to publish. Oh, and I recently turned 30! Whew, do ya’ll follow me on social media? If not, subscribe. lol. So, yea, my life has been a whirlwind lately, but I’m stabilizing and I’m exciting about God’s vision for my life.
Love y’all xoxo
