What About Me?

APRIL 17TH, 2020      |       Does it sometimes seem as if other people are getting ahead while you feel stuck? The grass always seems greener, especially on social media. At some point or another, everyone feels a twinge of envy and have asked, “Why don’t I have: a job like Bob’s, a husband like Sue’s, a house like Brenda’s…?” The list goes on and on. 

Are you feeling overlooked by God? When you start feeling this way, it’s a good time to start thanking God, even in your current circumstance. God has a plan for you. Don’t focus on other people’s lives and make assumptions that they are better off than you. Instead, PRAISE God for what you have. REPENT and ask forgiveness for not trusting His plan. ASK God to show you what His purpose is for you.

Reading your Bible and spending quiet time with God will help you hear His voice. Finally, be ready to say yes to whatever God speaks into your heart.

God, thank You for what I have. I trust that You have a plan for my life, and I know things happen in Your timing.

Father, show me what I need to do to prepare for the blessings You have in store for me.
