"You’re Blessed 05:1-1-12"
“You’re blessed when you’re at the
end of your rope
with less of you
there is more of God and His rule.
You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost
what is most dear to you.
You’re blessed when you’re content
with just who you are- no more, no less.
That’s the moment you find yourselves
proud owners of everything that can’t
You’re blessed when you get your inside
world- your mind and heart- put right.
Then you can see God in the outside world.
You’re blessed when you can
show people how to cooperate instead
of compete or fight.
That’s when you discover who you really
are, and your place in God’s family.
You’re blessed when your commitment
to God provokes persecution.
The presecution drives you even deeper into
God’s kingdom. Not only that- count
yourselves blessed every time people put
you down or throw you out, or speak
lies about you to discredit Me. What it
means is that the truth is too close
for comfort and they are uncomfortable.
You can be glad when that happens-
give a cheer even!- for though they don’t
like it, I do! And all Heaven applauds. And
know that you are in good company. My
prophets and witnesses have always gotten
into this kind of trouble.”
one of my dearest friends gave me this, written on a peace of notebook paper today, after me having confided in her about some heavy things on my heart days earlier. easily one of the many reasons tonight was amazing.
God is so fantastic, so present in these days, even when i falter. He never gives up on me.
He brings me to my feet.
All i must do is first fall to my knees.
