I pray that each of you have had a great week. Mine has been a blessing and somewhat challenging; but overall, God is still Awesome. He's faithful like that! Amen!
Giving God thanks and praise as I appreciate who He is and what good He keeps on doing in my life. To Him be the glory! Whatever the test, I know my Judge will judge justly.
I want to offer you some words of encouragement to take you through your weekend: God loves you unconditionally!!! Regardless of who you are and what you've done OR going to do, God still loves His children. Yes, He'll extend His corrective hand when we get off track but also to help us STAY on track. Yes, He knows we're flawed so He does not expect for us to be perfect but strive FOR perfection; which means, always do our BEST! No excuses to err continuously, especially when we have the knowledge to do better.
Remember, your real promotion and reward comes from God so just hold on to His unchanging hand. Live and walk in peace with everyone and NEVER sweat the small stuff! This life is temporal so don't take it too serious - BUT serious enough to pay attention and stay focused.
Accomplish and achieve great things; and according to God's plan, it will happen. (Jer 29:11) So wait your turn...it's coming. (Ecc 9:11) Be patient and not anxious. Expect - but not to a fault of disappointment.
Our God is big! Therefore, He has BIG things in store for His kids. Keep watching for that open door; but while you wait for that door to open, be in prayer as you wait - in - faith!
Be blessed God's people and have a wonderful - yet cool weekend!
