I’m so thankful for my sister and brothers in Christ. The little things you do for someone are more often the most important! Just like the mustard seed is the smallest of all seeds, but grows so large and it provides shelter for birds! This is a physical example of how powerful something so small can become! The power of prayer is the best thing you can ever do because your trusting in the Only one who knows best in hard situations! To encourage each other is like a big hug and it’s huge when your feeling helpless! The mustard seed is a spiritual example of what a faith in Jesus can do in your life (Matthew 17:20)! Knowing he has you and your family safe in his hands! I’m comforted knowing we can count on sisters and brothers to pray for me in hard times! I will continue seeking God through relationships because there is power in prayer! My daughter is getting ready for surgery and knowing God is in control gives me peace and comfort! We have many sisters and brothers all over the world, but we are All one body, led by the same spirit! God’s illuminating light is shining through us for His divine purpose through various gifts and talents (Romans 12:3-8 and 1 Corinthians 12:12-14). We are His hands and feet and so many wonderful blessings have been pouring out through many brothers and sisters reaching people in so many different ways! We are Family!
God knows you and sees everything you’re doing! He is right there with you and is walking right by your side! Jesus completely understands what you’re going through (Psalm 33:13-15)! He has compassion for us and collects all our tears not one falls to the ground (Psalm 56:8) Each one of us is running a race, but our life course looks different then someone else’s. Another physical example of a runner running a race, 1 Corinthians 9:24 says, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize” spiritually we need to keep going even when life is hard and situations don’t make since! Don’t give up! I’m comforted God makes the way even in impossible times because nothing is impossible with God (Psalm 56). His mighty ways are bigger than we can understand! He will guard us and keep us out of harm and guide us through troubled waters into safety!
I’m continually looking for the light in all things even through my tears! All of us have a unique situation and God cares for each of us equally and we are called to do the same for each other! Matthew 25:40, “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” God is doing some miraculous change inside of us that would have never happened unless quarantine happened! I’m in a hospital right now trusting God will keep us safe while we wait in the Emergency room (Psalm 91)! Sometimes we don’t know what we need until we are forced to stop! No matter the circumstance (obstacles) we need to run our race and encourage each other to do the same! We need struggles in life for spiritual growth but it is so hard! We need each other! We need to saturate ourselves with God’s living word and put on the full armor of God so we can withstand the evil screams that sneak in! (Hebrew 4:12 and Ephesians 6:10-13)! Unexpected things do happen! Like a sudden dog bit! As, I wait here for the doctor to come, I remember, God has already won! (Revelation 12:7-12)
We can have confidence in things that don’t make since like all the different rules and regulations (obstacles) but God is in charge overall. He is always working in us and around us! He is working on me as I type this out while I wait! Reach out to the sisters and brothers who God has placed in my life! It can be hard to let go or surrender our own understanding of why something is happening, but trusting God with All of our heart, will set you free! (Proverbs 3:5-6) God makes all things New and through his Son we can transform in His likeness, we just need to let go of our ways and Trust God! I’m Thankful! God bless all of you and your families!
