Weightless Burdens

Is it possible to still face everyday problems, and still have joy, and peace? Is it possible to smile, and have a glad heart even though every situation around you tells you to be burdened? Today I want to remind you that joy, peace, and a glad heart all are possible in the midst of adversity. Many times during our walk through life, we allow everyday problems to weigh us down. We carry burdens that we were never meant to carry. Our Heavenly Father is so gracious, and loves us so much, that He tells us to give Him every care, every hurt, and everything that may be weighing us down. He invites us to find peace, and rest in Him. Although the problem at hand may not go away, we are still able to hand over our thoughts by meditating on the Heavenly Father, and allow Him to steady our hearts. Be reminded, especially during this time of the year to seek peace in the Heavenly Father. Whatever burdens you may be carrying, allow Him to be your peace. Allow Him to help you smile. Allow Him to do what He has asked of you, and carry the stones that are weighing you down. He will sustain you through whatever it is you are faced with at this very moment. Allow love, hope, joy, and peace to replace your burdens. In all things, acknowledge Him, seek Him, and He will direct you in the way that you should go.

Bible verse Matthew 11:28-29

H.O.P.E

What does hope mean to you? For some of us, it’s hope for a better tomorrow. Your hope could be the expectation of Gods promises coming to pass in your life. For most of us, it’s also the anticipation of our final destination ‘Heaven.’ It’s not always easy to stay in a mindset of hope. When life happens we become distracted, and for a moment allow our hope to become a faint voice. We could all use an extra dose of hope. It could come in something as simple as a smile, or a hello. I’m sure you know someone that needs hope also. Maybe they are grieving the loss of a loved one. Maybe they feel as though life is really getting the best of them in this season. Whatever the reason, hope is something that we all need, and what sustains us. Our Heavenly Father is our ultimate source of hope. He is our strength when we feel weak, and our comforter, when we feel alone. He is our eyes when we can’t see, and the hand that carries us through life. Today, I want you to be reminded to carry hope with you wherever you go. Hope lives on the inside of you, because you are a believer of the most high. Share your hope with someone that needs it. Uplift a soul with a smile, and kindness. It’s in our service to others that our hope seems to grow. When we make our mission H.O.P.E ( Helping One Person Everyday ) we allow God to use us to touch the hearts of others, so that He can bring the change. In the end, hope carries a different meaning from person, to person. The one thing that remains the same, is the hope that we can give, and share with others. I pray that you would go forth, and make your mission H.O.P.E (Helping One Person Everyday). Hope is contagious, and one life changed is worth more than gold.

Remind Me

Have you ever overcame a rough patch in your life, that now seems like a distant memory? Maybe you are experiencing another rough patch, and have no idea as to how you are going to make it through. Often times, we forget about those moments in our past where God answered a prayer, and carried us to the other side. We forget about the promises we made to the Heavenly Father. We even forget about the promises that He made to us in His word. Be reminded today, that the Same God that saw you through previous rough patches in your life, is the same God that will carry you to the other side this time. When we think back over our lives, and the goodness of God, it gives us hope for the future. It allows us to see Gods hand in every situation big, or small. It allows our trust in the Heavenly Father to be unwavering. I pray that whatever you are currently facing in your life, is interrupted by a reminder. A reminder that you will be okay. A reminder that you will overcome. A reminder that God is with you. A reminder that you are not walking alone. A reminder that the Heavenly Father still hears your prayers. Sometimes in the midst of going through, it is hard to remind ourselves of the journey we have already traveled. Pray and ask the Heavenly Father to remind you. Ask Him to help you to see Him in the midst of your circumstances. May you be reminded today, that He has not carried you this far to leave you. 

Just Remember When You Prayed For The Things You Have Now
