God Breaks Me To Make Me Better

2018 was a year full of uncertainty. I was broken, I was confused, I was alone. Normally, that would break any person but not me. I was steadfast and held on to my faith. The reason is simple…I went thru the exact same thing from 2013 to 2015. During those “trying” years, I learned to trust and submit to God. I believe that 2018 was my test to see if I learned from past experiences. Today, I am in a position to be a positive influence in the lives of others and it’s because of God and the lessons he has given me.

Which Spirit Do You Feed In Your Body?

Found this online today and it was beautifully written that I had to share it with everyone. Nothing biblical in it but the message is the same. What you read, write, see, hear, and speak will always live within you. Like the Bible says…YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS. The truth in your heart will always win out. Although life is hard, what is more hard is living a life and living with anger, jealousy, gree, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.

Words and talk that I should live by as well. I really do struggle with resentment. I always replay moments in my life were people have wronged me or have taken advantage of me. I am always there for everyone and Lord knows when something is wrong in their lives, I am the one who is there. In my darkest moments or moments of celebration, I have been alone. What am I feeding my mind? Resentment. What do I need to let go off…resentment.

God does not change

God does not change. No matter if you feel his presence or not, through good times and bad, in darkness and light, when you search for answers or know it all; God is always there. For me personally, I have been praying for direction and purpose for years and had many false starts. Today, I am living my best life in a wonderful season and it’s because of God. I praise him for where I am now but I know that he was also there during the times of frustration, anger and confusion. Have a great day. God bless you. PJSLB

Laura Story – Blessings

In a hectic season in my life, Laura Story has been a voice of reason. PJSLB

We pray for blessings

We pray for peace

Comfort for family, protection while we sleep

We pray for healing, for prosperity

We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering

All the while, You hear each spoken need

Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops

What if Your healing comes through tears

What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near

What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom

Your voice to hear

We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near

We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love

As if every promise from Your Word is not enough

All the while, You hear each desperate plea

And long that we’d have faith to believe

When friends betray us

When darkness seems to win

We know that pain reminds this heart

That this is not our home

What if my greatest disappointments

Or the aching of this life

Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy

What if trials of this life

The rain, the storms, the hardest nights

Are your mercies in disguise
