JOY comes In The Morning!!!
Let’s be honest the moment we open our eyes, it’s not always a burst of Joy, we may not hear birds singing a Disney song, or have rays of sunlight lifting us out of bed. We may have actually had a horrible experience from the day before or through the night. We may wake and the first thought is disappointment, when we discover that it wasn’t a nightmare after all, but a reality that we will soon face again.
Images and words recorded come flooding, recapping all of the hurt. The should have, could have, the why and the IFs come spinning like a little tornado over your head.
If you are facing this day with out first capturing your thoughts and directing them to God, then yes your tornado will follow you out of bed. The dark clouds from yesterday will loom and seek to destroy your fresh start, causing an out of control forecast of the day. Truth, we have moments that literally cause aftershock, little rumbles that try to take our God given joy away. Even if we were certain, we already handed this situation over to God the night before, the enemy likes to creep in first thing. He catches us off guard, trying to instill doubt, reminding of us of our struggles. In this moment we have the opportunity to hold onto God’s truth! Not Today satan, Not Today!
We have Joy in the morning not only because it is New, but because we Have a God that has the power to make all things New! He is Faithful and In Him we can have confidence of deliverance.
2 Thessalonians 3:2-3
2 And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.
Don’t let Yesterday discourage your Today! It’s Gone, done and over with!
Don’t give up, you have only experienced a speck of this journey, and there is so much that is waiting to be revealed.
It’s a NEW Day! A Fresh Start! It is filled with New Hope, and New Opportunities!
This day comes with The Fathers love and strength, this day comes with the truth that you are not Alone in this.
Many times we wake and it’s our own guilt and regret that starts a storm brewing.
In JESUS Name You are Forgiven today, regardless of your yesterday. If He has forgiven you, then you have permission to forgive yourself.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
His Love has you covered! Now let him Position you towards your best.
I know that it is hard to comprehend or understand a love like this, but it’s real and True and it’s here for you!
You do not have to make sense of it, just know that there is a Life and a Plan for You In This New! Embrace it, Appreciate it, and Multiply All that is Given!
Jeremiah 31:25 I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”
Proverbs 11:25 A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
Let Go, Learn from it and move on, step into His Grace. Dance in that Beautiful Light! Smile, Laugh and Be Thankful!!!
I pray that you will walk with your eyes fixed on The Perfecter of Faith, that you will know and hold onto The Love that He has for you. There is Nothing that He is unaware of, place all thoughts and concerns into His capable hands.
The scriptures say to take all your thoughts captive and hold them accountable to The Knowledge of God! So the moment you wake up, clear the air, with Prayer! Capture the recap of yesterday, before it spirals out of control! When the storm comes brewing over your head send it through The God filter. Anything that can not hold to God’s truth, anything that replaces doubt in the space of his promises, it needs to go!
Start your day by reflecting on God’s Truth and Arm yourself with Prayer. Choose Joy!
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.
God Bless You today as you soak in His Love! Be reminded of His Strength, wrap up in his peace and comfort. May you be filled with The Spirit as you Look forward to the Joy of second chances and New Beginnings!
