You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. Gen. 50:20a

I loved this verse this morning, so many times things come in our life and we stress and fret over them, especially if your a people pleaser and want peace with everyone. Which most of us are:) No one likes strife or confusion, we all want the world to be at peace and for us to be at peace with each other. BUT as we all know the world is not always at peace and neither are we. One thing you can always count on for sure, is God will work it all out for YOUR good, no matter what it is.  When others harm us, intending or unintended God has your back, you may not feel it but when you need it you will know HE is the one who has you in the palm of HIS hand.   I have not had a Bible whipping in a long time from anyone, but lately have had many verses and little sayings sent to me to let me know the sender is  God them self, and I am the scum of the earth, the only thing when someone does that, they are exalting them self saying, I am ok your not ok, which is saying I am a little closer to God then you, God loves me more then you, if you could just see all this and be like me, truth is, they or not ok and neither or you, if you believe what they say, things like this make me want to vomit!  So yes, I am thankful for our cover of our bulletin at Journey Church to today that reminds me when someone intends to harm you or hurt you with their words, actions, gossip to others, God has your back, and will make it good:)  Personally I choose not to respond to such things but to pray for the person saying such things, I have learned one thing these past few years, you have to walk the path God chose for you and trust that each step He will lead you, I will always seek out wise counsel when needed to make sure I am where God wants me in my life at this time:)
Life is always changing, mine sure has these past five years, as I get older, I realize the most important things in life are not things but what has eternal value. I am in sales so I get a lot of recognition in my Real Estate career because God has blessed my business, at the same time I totally know who butters my bread:)  I read a post today that said, always point people back to the Lord, they need to know its not you doing it , it is only God, in which I believe, I also believe God says, your the apple of my eye, in you I am well pleased, He desires for you to know His love for you and how proud He is of you being His child, when you do well he is clapping his hands, when we fail he is ever interceding but will always be showing you off because He is proud of you! So it goes without saying, God gets the Glory of the light that shines in you, He will let the others see it so they will want to know, what is it that keeps you going, so positive and full of life?  Let the world see who you are, who God has made you to be and SHINE!! Let go of all the negatives, you will never please all those your in contact with, run the best race you know how here on earth, listen to what your Father is telling you, if I do not see you here on this earth then for sure hope to see you in Heaven someday, "When God is for us, who can be against us, what can mere man do?" Lay your burdens down at the feet of Jesus daily so you can run and shine in all HIS glory, as He redeems you daily! If you do not know your Jesus like this, then cry out to Him to show you who HE is, He has your back! He is your healer, provider, deliverer, Knight in shinning armor! Hugs to all!
