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)
Took a social media break today as I considered where I 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.
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! ❤
