Sometimes we need a little lift in life by taking a look at ourselves. Life can be challenging at times; however, even in the challenges take time to live, laugh and be thankful. There is always something to be thankful for. Smile today. Laugh today. Tell someone that you care. Feel the warmth. Embrace the sunshine. Receive the love.

Do you ever feel like giving up? Well I felt that way today. It's been a busy couple of months for me. We are called to give God glory. I love glorifying God. I could glorify God 24 hours a day and never get tired. However, I do get tired of being disappointed. Sometimes I feel like I am on this road traveling and that I am never going to get to my destination. Do you ever feel like that? It seems like the more I do for the kingdom of God, the more the devil tries to attack my mind.
The last couple of weeks have been truly awesome with the Evening of Inspiration and other wonderful events. People were blessed with awesome testimonies, praise and worship. God received the glory but afterwards, I start feeling all alone, which I know is a lie from the Devil. All sorts of crazy thoughts tried to enter my mind. I went to our Daddy (God). I got on my knees and put my head in His lap and told Him all about it. He heard my cry and immediately comforted me. Once again He told me to be still, not to be anxious. That is hard to do sometimes, especially when your circumstances look otherwise. That’s where faith comes in, which we will talk about in another blog. Do you ever find yourself asking “When God”? Remember, God’s timing is not our timing and if we truly want His will, we must wait. We must also keep the faith. "Without faith it is impossible to please God. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6).
You can't always keep the Devil from putting doubt in your mind, but if you refuse to speak it, it will never enter your heart. The thought of doubt will die unborn unless you speak it. When Jesus spoke of the things that were to come upon the earth, He said, "See that ye not be troubled." (Matthew 24:6) In John 14:1, let not your heart be troubled." Than in Matthew 6:25, Jesus admonishes us to take no anxious thought concerning the necessities of life. When you feel like giving up, “remember to talk to God about it.” Stand on God's word. God is your father. Call Him and He will answer. Talk to Him; He will respond. It’s ok to be real with God. He knows you. He knows your thoughts before you think them. He won’t reject you. That’s a promise.
Remember you have the greatest love of all. You have God’s love. You have the love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Iron sharpens Iron.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.
