Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh start. A new dawn is rising up. And God is ever faithful.
I shared a little yesterday about how I was feeling. God is such a faithful, amazing provider. He is a provider of all things. He will provide for you physically, financially, emotionally, and spiritually. He holds nothing back from us. His ways may sometimes look different than how we are expecting Him to work, but if you search for Him, you will find Him everywhere and heavily involved in every aspect of Your life.
His timing is perfect too. One of my best friends is an avid reader. She is always reading a new book. I stumbled across an interesting new book on Instagram about a week ago, but what I was really captivated by was the message written below the image of the book. It was about being present with the ones you love. So, I sent her the link, and forgot all about it.
These feelings of self doubt and overall frustration with my slow growth have been hanging around a little while, and I have been praying through them. Asking God what He is trying to teach me. What am I missing? So often as I write and share, I realize that it is just as much a message for me as it is for all of you. That is how yesterday’s writing was. I needed to hear from God that oak trees take time to grow big and strong. I needed to read in Phillipians that Paul was frustrated with his progress too. So, as I write each morning, God is usually helping me through something or preparing me in advance for something I will encounter. That was yesterday. As I wrote, I knew He was speaking to me and calming my fears.
Then, His provision got even better. He put the book into my hands through my dear friend. The book that I suggested for her. She bought it! She started reading it, and realized the book was meant for me instead of her. She said that she just knew. Yesterday, on the very morning that I shared about my struggle, a book was placed in my mailbox at work…. the title, “Present over Perfect.”
I believe these are the ways you will find God. Yes, sometimes His Presence is so strong and mighty and You know its Him. But He is multifaceted. If you look for Him, you will find His Hands involved in everything. He will work through people, events, conversations, appointments, and all of the dealings of your day.
As I started reading the book yesterday, I just stopped one chapter in and said, “Thank you Jesus. Thank you Lord that you love me enough to send me encouragent and messages just when I need them. Teach me what I need to learn in this season.”
This morning I encourage you to seeeeek Him. Tell Him what you need, how you feel, what you long for, or what you’re afraid of..pour it all out like you really believe that He is listening because He is.
You can cling to the hope that we have in Him. You can put your trust and your faith in Him. He can be counted on to supply all that you need, and far surpass your expectations. He is a God of abundance, and He has promised to walk through trials and troubles alongside of us. He is with you. You can grab ahold of that today and know He will provide for you in every season.
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for your goodness. Thank you for your provision, your unending love, your desire to be in relationship with each one of us. Help us to receieve what You are offering. Help us to recognize that it’s You. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
Blessings to you today!
