Oftentimes, when asked, "How are you doing?", we say, "I am too Blessed to be Stressed." Hmm... but are we really, or are we just saying what sounds good?
When things are going good, it is quite easy to say that we are blessed. What about when things are not so good physically, financially or even mentally? Or when it seems like you are being picked on for no reason?
Today, I want to remind us that as children of God, we are indeed 'too Blessed to be Stressed'. Did you know for every problem you had, maybe having or will have, God has the answer?
Early yesterday morning, I received an email that could have turned my entire day upside down. Thankfully, I read it after my morning devotion, where I was reminded of God's pierced love for me. The prayer at the end was thanking God for His gift of Jesus, sent to meet my need for the day and that He did. I read the email, knowing that my Abba Father was in control and once I continued to trust in Him, everything would work out and it did. Truthfully, I was so prepared, that even if it didn't work out, I knew God had a plan.
I am thankful that I am indeed Blessed. Therefore, I will not stress because I will continue to put my trust in God, Who is my fortress. For those who don't have a relationship with God, I encourage you to start one today, so that you too can be blessed.
Psalm 91:1-2 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in Whom I trust.”
Have a Thankful Thursday, knowing that as joint-heirs with Christ, we are indeed blessed, not just for ourselves but to bless others as well.🙌🏾💖🙏🏾
