Tracy’s Thoughts Day 21
Happily Ever After 🎉
Wow, day 21! We did it, after today our 21-day journey is complete, at least for now. Thanks again to everyone who has followed along, left your wonderful comments and just encouraged me to pieces not to mention read my thoughts. It meant a lot!!!
As I’ve been sharing my thoughts, it has occurred to me, we have covered the gamut, from Genesis to Revelation and several places in between and to be honest this one is the hardest. So here I go.
In so many stories take Joseph for instance, although faced with some unbelievable challenges God showed up and the dream he was given was fulfilled; in the end, his family did bow down to him. Noah built a boat, He’d never seen rain but ok – family saved not to mention all of the wildlife. (Mmm here’s a thought why didn’t God just create another batch of animals? Noah wouldn’t have needed nearly as big a boat. Lol) Then you have Abraham, father of many nations, he finally did have a couple of sons and the promise did come to pass just not in his lifetime. Daniel wouldn’t worship the king was thrown into the lions’ den, but God shut their mouths! These are just a few, I’m sure you’re thinking of others. In every story we see the hand of God moving. Just like He’s moving in our lives; He is you know. Let’s read these awesome verses in 2 Corinthians 4:6-8 NLT “For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair.”
Just like those Bible friends I’ve mentioned and so many more; we are like fragile clay jars but when Jesus puts us together and shines His light through us we are unstoppable because we have His power working in us. We might face some furnace experiences like Daniels friends but we can come out not even smelling like smoke. Remember the promise is to the overcomer, we will have our happily ever after!
Let’s pray, Lord thank you for a good start to a wonderful new year.
Thank you that we can count on you to fulfill your promises. On those days when we are discouraged help us to remember that you won’t leave us or forsake us. Let us see through your eyes expecting you to do something awesome as we travel this journey with you. In Jesus Name Amen💗
