The Amazing “HEATHER LINDSEY” posted this on Facebook today!
(((Are you dreading going into work today, facing your schedule or going to school? Remember that time that you prayed for a job? Or to be able to attend school? Remember the family you prayed for? Or the small business you wanted to own? Don’t let the fire go out on your LIFE. Remember that God sent you to work, to your business, school or to even stay home as a stay at home mom. You have purpose today and it matters. Go into today grateful, thankful and ready to have an amazing day. ❤️✨)))
This hit home for me because we all pray for certain things in life, and depending on the urgency for the need, we may even beg and plead for it while we are praying. “LORD IF YOU BLESS ME WITH THIS… ILL DO THIS” “LORD I NEED THIS NOW” “LORD BLESS ME”
Truth is…we pray for the blessings but don’t ask the Lord for strength, patience, courage.. or whatever it takes to help us maintain the blessing! Sometimes, if the going gets tough enough, we may even forget that we prayed for this blessing. As humans, we will have moments where we feel like giving up, throwing in the towel, and neglecting the very thing we prayed for. But life don’t work that way, though it won’t be easy we gotta keep pushing.
For example, I have been struggling with being consistent in several areas of my life for YEARS now. I may master one thing, but start slacking in another area. One area of my life I have been struggling with is being consistent working out. I feel great after I do it, I feel refreshed and energized. But the second something happens in my life and my emotions get the best of me… I STOP‼️‼️ Once I stop, it’s hard to continue going. I have to LITERALLY pull myself up out of my slump to keep going! But then the Lord remind me, I prayed for this.
Even work… there are days I don’t feel like going… but then the Lord remind me how many nights I cried and prayed for this😩 Better yet, my bills can’t pay itself.
The question is… DO YOU REMEMBER?
Do you remember the nights you prayed for the Lord to bless you with that very thing that you are frustrated about? Do you remember what it took for you to get to that point? Do you remember how the Lord made a way to bless you with what you begged him for?
So let’s start today and hold our head high, thank the Lord for another day and…. work that job, love that husband, love that business venture, go after those fitness goals…
We don’t ever want to come across as ungrateful for what the Lord blesses us with. Truth is, we complain but if he took away our ability to do these things, then we wouldn’t like it🙏🏽 Let’s pray!
PRAYER: FATHER GOD, BLESS THE PERSON READING THIS POST! HELP US TO UNDERSTAND THAT MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH IS REQUIRED! HELP US TO GRASP THE FACT THAT YOU DON’T CHANGE YOUR MIND BECAUSE WE DON’T FEEL LIKE DOING SOMETHING, WE MUST SEE IT THROUGH TO THE END! NO MATTER HOW WE FEEL! IF ANYONE UNDERSTANDS THIS CONCEPT IT WOULD BE YOU, CONSIDERING YOU TOLD GOD, “NEVERTHELESS”…. “NOT MY WILL, BUT YOURS BE DONE”. WHEN YOU TOOK THAT BEATING AND DIED ON THE CROSS FOR US.. YOU DID IT GRACEFULLY! CARRIED IT ALL ON YOUR BACK FOR THE SAKE OF HUMANITY, FOR OUR SINS! SO LORD WE ASK THAT YOU GRANT US SUPERNATURAL PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL OF OUR UNDERSTANDING AS WE GO THROUGH. FATHER, WHEN WE GET WEARY, REMIND US OF WHAT WE PRAYED FOR🙏🏽 IN JESUS NAME, AMEN!
