GOOD day!!

Its my nature to be grouchy, but I have to make a choice
to have a
great attitude no matter what comes my way!
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, kindess, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."
Galations 5:22

Best days ahead...

Max Lucado recently came to my church to preach. He is an amazing man. His words gave me hope. I am so thankful.

"Today's questions will become tomorrow's proclamations."

A while back, I posted all my troubles, concerns, and frustrations. I had many many questions of doubt. I have come to realize that I was only seeing my circumstances on my level.  I have been living in a spirit of fear. My mind and heart have been in agony. I have been so stressed that my hair has been falling out.

I got this mind picture that God wanted to hold me, like a mother wants to hold her hurting child. He said to me "I have not given you a spirit of fear my dear child, but a spirit of power, of love, and a sound mind."

I realized I have not put my trust in my Heavenly Father. I have lost my faith. Faith is choosing to believe and act upon what God says, regardless of my feelings or circumstances.

He is trustworthy. And I will choose to look upon Him, when my feelings and circumstances tell me to be fearful. He has told me not to fear, for He is with me; to not anxiously look about me, for He is my God. He will strengthen me, help me and surely uphold me with His righteous right hand (see Isaiah 41:10).

So here I am, declaring----> I choose to live by faith in the God who has promised to protect me and meet all my needs as I walk by faith in Him. 

Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom should I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom should I be afraid?
