Chosen by God!

"Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]." (I Thessalonians 5:18 AMPC)

I took a social media break today as I considered where I would find myself in the storm. (If you don't know I'm in Houston, TX and we've been hit by Hurricane Harvey, which is now a tropical storm. We're experiencing catastrophic flooding and devastation.)

Took time to thank God in spite of, and because of.

I counted my blessings and realized in all I face there are things to be thankful for, I just have to look for them and focus on them.

Decided I would not be deceived by the enemy and would actively seek God's heart by remembering just how much He loves me.

I chose praise over complaining. I chose hope over despair. I chose joy over sadness.

In the meantime, I continue to be:

Prayerful...Hopeful...Cheerful...Peaceful...Trusting...Focused...Trusting God...Standing on Psalm 91

Be Encouraged! ❤
