May all that is disturbing you be laid to rest. May all your fears you overcome.
May happiness be your first choice.
And may simplest small things give you greater joys.
Life is in the moments , lets not wait for the good things to happen to us. Because even in the toughest patches are life’s greatest lessons. I don’t know what you are going through. But let’s remember what God said, “This too shall pass.” and it surely will. Today, just enjoy your day, there’s a reason you were born, a miracle to your parents and moulded by God.And even if we grow older, we still are children of God, and God never ever forsakes.
I know, the struggle in you is as real as your breath. You should know that you aren’t alone. There are tons of people going through tons of things on a daily basis. So just take one day at a time, breathe deeply, close your eyes for a moment and say it to yourself “It will pass. This is temporary. GOD is working with me, on me, in me.”
Dont worry about things you can’t control, work with things you can and leave it to God to intervene in your utmost helplessness. HE IS THERE. HE ALWAYS IS. There’s no reason to worry, especially knowing that He goes before us in our battlefields, He ensures that He leads us through adversities on the path of victory alone. Just like He-‘the great I Am’ – directed Moses & Joshua and led his chosen Israel to the promised land, what makes us doubt that our Eternal Father won’t lead us to the promised blessings He has in store for us ?
At times we may feel HE isn’t there, honestly He is there, He never leaves but may be, He isn’t aiding you because there’s something you are doing wrong , there’s something that you need to change, there’s something that you need to realise and figure out on your own. God shows the path, but to choose it is our choice; He helps but we need to become small, humble ourselves and Ask Him with faith and belief. We should have confidence in our Father that He will deliver us in His time. He is merciful especially when we repent. He does become angry just as our father on earth will, when we do wrong, but He readily forgives when we turn to Him in penance and prayer.
To be the chosen one, first believe that you truly are the Chosen one, count the countless blessings, at your lowest make atleast one person smile, that will make you forget your endless miseries for a few richly cherished moments.
You are chosen. And that indeed is such a great peace. Let it seep into your cells . Believe.
Reflect on these :
1.This too shall pass.
2 Corinthians 4: 17-18 “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever. So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
Acts 2: 21 Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’
Joel 2:32 Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
3. Ask him in faith.
Mathew 7:7-8 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Mathew 21:22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask in prayer.
Matthew 18:19 Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.
Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
John 14:13 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
John 15:7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
John 16:23-24 Truly I tell you, anything you ask the Father in my name, he will give you. Until now you have asked for nothing in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.
James 1:5-8 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
1John 3:22 we receive from him whatever we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him.
1John 5:14-15 We have courage in God’s presence, because we are sure that he hears us if we ask him for anything that is according to his will. He hears us whenever we ask him; and since we know this is true, we know also that he gives us what we ask from him.
4. He chose you. He never forsakes.
John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
Isaiah 41:9-10 you whom I took from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest corners, saying to you, “You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you off”; “do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.“
James 1:17 -18 Every good gift and every perfect present comes from heaven; it comes down from God, the Creator of the heavenly lights, who does not change or cause darkness by turning. By his own will he brought us into being through the word of truth, so that we should have first place among all his creatures.
Isaiah 41: 13 For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Do not fear, I will help you.”
5. He promises the impossible.
Isaiah 41:17-18 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the Lord will answer them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys, I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
Mathew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.“
Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you.
Take care and stay strong. It’s okay to feel what you feel. But only your faith should overcome you.
Have a blest day.
Lot’s of Love, hope & peace,
