Whether I have all I want or not, I have already reached the pinnacle, and that is relationship with Jesus and access to life eternity! With this relationship, I know that I am well covered and provided for. I can face each day knowing that my future is secure in Christ, and I am grateful.
Meanwhile, the money in the bank, a car, a house, and good credit is not the end goal for me. Been there, had it all. Yet, when those things became challenged by my health, I realized they didn’t matter anymore.
What did matter was whether I still trusted God, and I choose to do just that.
No. God didn’t cause my illness or financial stress, but He used it all to draw me closer to Jesus!
In these few years, I have learned a lot about what it truly means to trust God. I am still growing in this, daily. Until I leave this planet, I will continue learning.
Regardless, no matter how my circumstances look, my life belongs to God, and He deserves my praise and submission to His will. Therefore, He has taught me that my source is not me, my education, or even my will power to go out and earn money. He has also shown me that life still has many blessings, in spite of the messes!
With God’s help, I have been turning the bad into something good (Romans 8:28). In this season, I am not giving up. Instead, I thank God for my life and for being my everything.
After giving thanks, I take my pain, fatigue, sorrows, and needs to Him. I stay there, until these feelings are gone, and I am left with more peace. Day by day, God has helped me to build another life, and I count it all as joy.
How life looks next week, only God knows this. I just stay in the moment and give thanks! Believe me, I am not telling anyone how to handle their situation or what to think.
My blog will never be about that! However, this is a Christian blog, and my hope is to remind someone that there is always something to be grateful for. Number one, there is Jesus Christ, and I am thankful to Him.
In closing, God isn’t stressing, so why should I? Above Him, there is no other, and life with Him is what I choose to focus on. I submit to this more each day.
