As I sit reflecting in His presence. I am thankful for all that He has done. He wakes us up everyday by breathing new life in us. Its good when you experience a comfort and a love that is more soothing than a Mother’s touch. Now it has not always been like this, but He has awaken me to see things through His eyes. God is so good!
I know that He is working everything out for the good of those who love Him, that includes even old me. Up to this point, I would say it but not know what it meant. By being around church folk for years, I often heard you live long enough and you will experience some things. In my mind, I was curious to get to a level of spiritual maturity as the “Senior Soldiers” or ” Mothers of the Church” use to speak about. I remember growing up always being around older folk. Maybe because I was around my grandparents. It was interesting to hear them talk as they shared their life stories. Some of the stories were for you to hear and others were not because being of a young age. A lot is different from the times I grew up because I remember grandparents back then did not play. An example was when grown folks were talking, the young children were not around for grown conversations. For me, my grandparents were old school especially my grandfathers. It was a level of respect given to them by those around them. I appreciated being around these beautiful spirits who were strong men of faith. It was more heartfelt as I remember my time with them before they departed from this earth. Lovingly, I can recall them saying to enjoy life and hear them share some of their life stories. I know that God blessed me with so much as it is now that I can cherish those times. With those memories in my heart, I remember to think on the good and not the bad. Indeed it has helped me to see how He has given me so many treasures in the midst of it all.
When you are in a place of loneliness and despair, remember that God is your help. He will give you a message and a song to remind you of His truth. For God is great! His truth says to look to the hills from which cometh your help, and your help comes from the lord. You can read about this in Psalm 121 KJV. It’s in those times when the enemy tries to get you to not believe when we have to speak aloud the word. One of verses is John 10:10 KJV, the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, but remember God came that you will have life. Remember that He loves you. God created you for a reason, and the devil does not like it. The enemy will do everything he can to knock you down. You may feel broken, but you are not defeated. God has His hand on you, and just know He will never leave you or forsake you.
In His care,
