May your celebration of His birth be filled with joy this Christmas.
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways," says the Lord." Isaiah 55:9We cannot possibly know and understand why God chooses to do what He does and how He chooses to do it. What we can do though, is trust that He has our best interest in mind and honor Him with our obedience.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5
hi Pia, i had saved this word from Joel & Victoria Osteen last year. when i read it just now, you came to my thoughts, so i thought i'd share it here with you:God knew I'd asked Him about this and He already prepared His answer in advance... His way. God knew all along! Thank you, Lord!
"Your time is coming! The dreams and desires, the things you want to accomplish, the situations you want to see changed will happen. Just because it has taken a long time, or because you've tried and failed, don't give up on those dreams. Don't be complacent about pursuing what God has placed in your heart. I encourage you today - get your fire back! It may be taking a long time, but God is a faithful God. No matter how long it's been, no matter how impossible it looks, if you'll stay in faith, your time is coming. Every dream that's in your heart, every promise that has taken root, God not only put it there, but He has every intention of bringing it to pass. Start declaring today, "My time is coming. God is working behind the scenes on my behalf. I will fulfill my destiny. I will fulfill the plan God has for my life!" As you declare and expect and wait for the appointed time, your faith will grow. Your hope will grow. And you'll step into the destiny God has in store for you!"
i remember how loud this spoke to me when i read it last year, and God is still speaking thru these same words. i hope they'll bless you as well.
hope all is well with you. hugs!
