An encouraging word..

I've been working through "Jesus Calling" as part of my devotional and have found my heart encouraged every single morning.

I needed to hear this one yesterday and if you're anything like me, then you're always thirsty for an encouraging word.

An short excerpt from the devotional: "I shower blessings on you daily, but sometimes you don't perceive them. When your mind is stuck on a negative focus, you see neither Me nor My gifts. In faith, thank Me for whatever is preoccupying your mind. This will clear the blockage so that you can find Me."

I feel like there are some days where we truly are just wading through life to find God.

What if instead of dwelling on our struggles, anxieties, etc. we thanked God for them.

I did that this morning and found JOY.

"Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come."
2 Corinthians 5:5

"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom."
2 Corinthians 3:17

Have a blessed weekend! :)
