“Blessed and Happy Monday”

“This is the day which the Lord has brought about; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24 (Amplified)


Everyday that we wake up and we are healthy, we have a place of employment, we have a home to live in, and we have friends and family, we are abundantly blessed. Today was a blessed and happy Monday. No matter what pitfalls and problems we may have, we can choose to have a  good day because every day is an opportunity see what else God has for us. Every day is a new opportunity to sing, to laugh, and to smile. I hope your Monday was a beautiful one.

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” —Mahatma Gandhi


30 Days Of…Day 23 – “Trust”


Do you have trouble trusting people? Do you have a hard time trusting in God? Several post back I wrote about my favorite scripture. That scripture talks about trusting in the Lord with all your heart. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) is the scripture I am referring to and it says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”

To trust is to have confidence and to rely.  Sometimes I find it difficult to trust in the Lord with all my heart because it is easier for me to rely on my on understanding or my own way of doing things because I think my way is the best way to do it. I seek to figure things out on my own, but ultimately, I always end up back in God’s word for answers. For me, everyday is another day to grow in Jesus and learn to lean on Him. He knows what’s in my heart. As the old gospel song says, “I will trust in the Lord until I die”. It is not always an easy choice, but it is a choice I choose to make. Will you trust in the Lord? Why?
