Hope For Today! April 19

Today is going to be a great day!

God’s mercies are new every morning. Lamentations 3:23

Moments Of Hope! Secret Riches!

The scripture says in the early morning when it was still dark Jesus got up and went away to a secluded place and was praying there. You think about when you get up how the world crowds itself into your thinking. You have to get dressed, eat breakfast, go to work or do what you need to do to start your day and as soon as you do it’s busy, busy, busy all day long, and your mind is full. Then you finish your day, get back in your car, dodge the traffic all the way home, or your home and you have to start making dinner. I can fill up your day and not even know you and since the pandemic it is even more crucial to remember the scripture, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭KJV‬‬.

Where is God? Where is God’s private time with you? To be honest, when the pandemic hit our world it was not the business that stopped me it was the isolation that put me in the pit of depression and despair. I was seeking God for my peace and my direction for my life. For over two years I was in the wilderness trying to find my purpose in life. I would lay in bed praying and weeping for God to give me direction for my life. I knew this was not the life God wanted for me. My whole life I have been trying to help hurting people but I didn’t want anyone to see how broken and bad I was hurting. I always wore a mask and had it all together on the outside, but inside my life was a mess. I knew I wanted to help others who where feeling the same way I was but I didn’t know how. So January 2022, early in the morning I decided to get out of bed, go on the elliptical and start listen to something positive to fill my mind and I started to journal my thoughts on my iPhone as I exercised. This morning, it is 5:30 a.m. I’m on the elliptical, listening to God’s Word and everyday God brought scriptures to the forefront of my mind and I just start writing. I then started to pray and ask God to use me however He wanted to use me. It is April now and I have written my blog everyday since my birthday March 6th, 2022. My first book was going to be Bipolar-Our Life Journey, but as I wrote it, it was not giving me hope and encouragement like I wanted my first book to be about. God put people in my life and God lead me to write on Dreaming Big for your life no matter what obstacles come your way. I am praying that my first book will be out June 1, 2022. Dream Big-Our God Is Bigger, Treasures In The Darkness. It will be a testimonial of God’s grace through our life journey. “And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness— secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name.” Isaiah‬ ‭45:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬. I had no intention of writing on any of the above paragraph today but I guess God wanted me to share what came to my heart.

First and foremost we must make sure God is our top priority. Seek first His kingdom and all these things will be added unto you. So many times we want the things that God promises without doing what God requires in order for the promises to become ours. God said make me your priority, be as consistent as you can, give it everything you got, every time you get up to go, because you have know idea when your not going to get the chance again. It’s when you do the same thing over and over again that you begin to see the mountain of impossibles begin to move. Prayer and perseverance go together, if your going to be a person of prayer you will be a person of perseverance. “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:35‬ ‭KJV‬‬
