We all have gone through it in some form or fashion, or are currently experiencing it.
Pain and Suffering.
When in these times, what does the Bible say?
Romans 5:3-5 “More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
Appreciating the present, and remembering the steps taken to get here.
It was a blessed journey.
Filled with challenges, that were overcome by faith in God.
During those times, came fun loving adventures.
Also, the joy of building a foundation for the future.
In thinking about the good times, the spirit is kept alive, to keep in the present, and step to the future with.
Thank you Jesus, for your Amazing blessings.
Bible verse about the good times:
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
In these times especially, with so much going on in our world, let’s be prayerful.
Pray for your loved ones, and do not cease.
Pray for your neighbors, and do not cease.
Pray for yourself, and do not cease.
Pray for your friends, and do not cease.
Even pray for your enemies so that you may be protected from them.
We need constant prayers.
Dear God, Thank you for your plentiful blessings, in Jesus name Amen 🙏🏼
Bible verses about constant prayer:
Philippians 4:12 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
Romans 8:27 “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God”
Have faith, when one door closes, another one, filled with light and more life, will open. 🙏🏼
Bible verses about an open door:
Revelation 3:8 “I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”
We are at the end of a prayer countdown again, and it’s only day 1.
It’s never time to stop praying.
We have to keep praying, no matter what.
Dear God, Thank you for your wonderful grace, and never ending love. You are the king of king, and lord of lords. We thank you for a continued life, full of blessings. You know the special matters at hand, what we need to happen. I claim that it’s done, in Jesus name Amen 🙏🏼
