Faith + Perseverance

At times the journey of faith can be very hard. Sometimes it’s hard for us to remember that each closed door has a reason.

Jesus closes doors in order to protect us from the things He knows we do not need. His hand is on you, always. Every test, every trial, every hurt, every disappointment- persevere because your breakthrough is closer than you think.

Keep the faith.

This little light of mine 🎶🌟

26|2|2017 I committed to shining light in darkness. Each day I yearn and crave more for this light from my Creator so that I can share with others. My light can’t be hidden. Being souled out and surrendered is being committed to this light.

🌟🎶 This little light of mine,

I’m gonna let it shine

This little light of mine,

I’m gonna let it shine

Let it shine,

Let it shine,

Let it shine.

Hide it under a bushel? No!

I’m gonna let it shine

Hide it under a bushel? No!

I’m gonna let it shine

Hide it under a bushel? No!

I’m gonna let it shine

Let it shine,

Let it shine,

Don’t let Satan blow it out,

I’m gonna let it shine

Don’t let Satan blow it out,

I’m gonna let it shine

Shine all over 🌟🎶

Matthew 5: 14-16 says: “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your Heavenly Father.”

keep shining,

g o o d m o r n i n g | heart check.

It’s easy to be the opposite of the fruits of the Spirit. Choose the good fruit because we don’t pick bad fruits off the tree and eat them. Nor do we take our hard earned money to buy bad fruits at the market! So why try to be the opposite? It will only lead to destruction.

Check your heart today… what fruits are you bearing?

The easy road often leads to avoidable consequences.

Hiding place

Safe place

I trust the plans God has for me because He is all the above plus so much more. He is so faithful with his promises and plans for my life. He is more than I could ever imagine. He protects and guides me away from the plans of the enemy. Covers me in His safe hiding place. He works overtime for the miracles that transforms my life daily. He never gives me more than I can bear. He gives me the gifts of the fruits of the Spirit and the Holy Spirit. He disciplines me because he cares about my growth, maturity and strength.

I understand that I can’t take credit for anything in my life. Not the fact I breathe, have a family, my business, shelter, clothing and everything I could ever imagine.

He is constant, consistent and complete. In every season He remains the same – so with every season I will trust Him. He never fails me yet.

I will continue to trust Him and all that He is to me.

Will you?
