When you put your hope in the Lord

When my daughters ask something of me or tell me their concerns, they are looking for reaffirmation that everything will be alright. When I assure them that everything will be alright or calm their fears, they are embolden with confidence because they know “I have their back.” The same can be said with our relationship with God. When we approach God, we should be emboldened to know that everything will work out because we have approached our father.

When God gives only you the vision

Even now, I have family and friends that question what I am doing with my life. They call my work and actions “wasteful” and lazy. I should be working at Wall Street making that money. What they don’t understand is that I am at the exact place I am suppose to be. This is what I am called to do. Money comes and goes but knowing that you are living a purposeful life is eternal.

IF God places something in your heart just know that many will not understand. They may not understand but you do.

Have a great day. PJSLB

My favorite bible verse

Do you have a favorite bible verse? Philippians 4:6 is probably the first Bible verse I ever memorized. I was about 12 years old, and visiting the Philippines when my older cousin introduced me to the gospel. At that time this verse was used to remind me not to worry about school, friends, and every day problems of being a teenager. Today this verse helps me with work, family, and the every day struggle of living in this world. My problems and worries have changed as I get older but my reliance on the word of God and his promises have not changed.
