Lost but NEVER a loser!!!

“No worries ”ย is the continual message playing in my head. God keeps reminding me of WHO I am to Him and who’s I am, and that knowledge alone gives me an inner Peace.

Some days I wish I had plenty of friends to text, call and visit with, so that I won’t feel so sad. Then, I look to the hills, from where my help comes from and realize I’m fine just as I am… Sanctified and moving toward righteousness totally.

This New Years at 12 am instead of partying and getting wasted, I settled for staying in and resting up for a seven straight days workload, and believe it or not, it was very relaxing and I was content. Not to mention the fact that I was outta harms way… Bullets don’t have eyes! To add, my grown children didn’t have much to brag about, fun just ain’t what it use to be, now that I’m praying for transformation in their lives… None of the illicit drugs or alcohol that they indulge in will have the same effect lol ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m determined that all my family will be sold out for Christ in 2015, I won’t have it no other way… Besides, there’s so much talent, gifts, wisdom, and creativity stored up in each of us, and it’s time we get busy allowing God to use us as the vessels He intended for us to be. So, if being in solitude, while I listen for God’s whispers causes this lost feeling… So be it!!!

Long as I know it’s in no way equated to failure or being a complete loser, I’m fine with every second of it. At the end of the day, only what we do for God will last anyway. Therefore, have Your way Daddy, building me into a WINNER, like only You can, and turn all my past troubles into bright sparkling TROPHIES ๐Ÿ™‚

Dysfunctional family… Be NOT bitter or dismayed

 

1 Peter 2:9-10

9 “But you are a chosen people,ย a royal priesthood,ย a holy nation,ย Godโ€™s special possession,ย that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.ย 10ย Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God;ย once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

No doubt, living in or being a product of a dysfunctional family can definitely be overwhelming. But, what matters most is your attitude, actions, reactions and responses. Make it a daily habit to remind yourself that you’re not in this alone. God placed you there for a purpose, and He’s surely with you through it all.

In most cases, your charge is to become that beacon of light and set apart from the rest. So that you may lead the lost ones to Salvation. Hard I know, but not impossible! Determination and repetition is imperative, and not you merely giving lip service, about what everyone else needs to do. Rather, you are to be the model they can follow and appreciate… Live a righteous life of example before them, and before you know it conversion will run through each person like a domino effect.

You may be thinking “Things are too bad here, nothing will ever change the course of this household”. Not true, God already knows about the drug usage, verbal & mental abuse, theft, lies, gossip, backbiting and slander; to say the least, that you endure regularly, and He wants you to know He’s well pleased with your staying abilities. Moreover, your breakthrough is near, and He’s about to turn every test you’ve passed into TESTIMONIES.

You did well in refraining from murmuring and complaining… Never considering yourself to be a victim. Instead, you remained strong as a VICTOR!!! Keep up the good work fam, everything is working in your favor. Look to see change very soon… But, you gotta believe. No matter how it looks, even if the enemy tries to show you reasons why God can’t possibly be on your side… Shut him up with your Faith, by exclaiming the goodness of God thus far.

Now, walk with pomp and circumstance, into your destiny, knowing that you’re more than a conqueror ๐Ÿ™‚
