I'm taking You with me.

Phil 4:6-7
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I'll admit I got anxious and frustrated. I'll admit in my frustration I began to seek and desire. I want things to be different. I'll admit that I feel I'm going through hell emotionally all over again. But I can also admit that I am blessed beyond belief. I am taking pride in my strength found in God alone. I'll admit that whatever I am going through is for my benefit all according to God's perfect plan and will; I have not doubted God's Sovereignty, I know He is at work. I know I am being refined through fire to become the man He needs and wants me to be. For whatever may come I will NOT be shaken, my eyes will remain upon You. You're the only thing that matters. You're the reason I get up in the morning with a smile despite the storm. You're the purpose I have chosen to live for. Do I have a clue what's going to happen? Now or in the future, no clue! NO WAY! Do I see possibilities of many things? ABSOLUTELY! Am I going to put any of my anxieties anywhere but before the cross? NO THANK YOU! I am surrendered to His Will. Whatever my Dad has for me, the answer is yes. I trust Him so much right now. I know His glory will reign in my life because of it. I don't know, I don't understand, but my hope is in Christ Jesus alone and there isn't another place I'd rather have it. I will be just fine

With love

I'm at a loss for words at the moment.
Things are a wreck but I see no wreckage.
I am in that moment where you have no control of anything and just surrender.
Things in my life have hit the fan after months of flirtation, but I stand strong in Him.

God is too good to me, always. My eyes have seen the glory of God unfold. I honestly don't think I am capable of expressing properly, so please excuse me. Right this moment I am consumed with emotion and passion; passion for a God who cares! I have seen God's hands at work in my life these last 2 weeks, I have seen Him take me and use me. I have stepped up to be a man that trusts in God, a man that reveres and understands the power behinds God's name, and I really do mean this humbly because it's through Him that I have been able to be blessed. With God at the helm of my life right now, I have seen myself step up as a spiritual leader in ways I didn't see possible. I have seen my ship steer smoothly amidst the storm and chaos. There are a lot of things changing in my life; I see positives, lots of positives. I ask for continual prayer, I need it; but praise God because He is unfolding the steps to follow each day. I have plans, God's plan. I am amidst of a storm sure, but better yet I can say I am amidst the calm that only comes with knowing of Jesus Christ as savior. He is so good, so good!

John 16:33 - "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
With love,

All of my life
In every season

You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

I should feel discouraged, but I am not. I should be upset, but I am not. I should be making excuses to revert my ways, but I won't! Man it doesn't matter what you're going through, God is still God. He is with you, step by step. He is the calm and comfort amidst the storm. He is the soft whisper of encouragement that is telling you, it will be alright. I think many of us have a reason to want to stop, but if you were stop to take a moment, you'd realize God is with you. I stand firm this morning, Lord refine me through the flame. The devil can continue attacking, attack my family, attack my schooling, attack my job; he can keep scheming. I stand boldly before Your throne claiming victory already. I am a conqueror in Christ, the devil can attack all those aspects of my life but there is one thing he can't do and that is stop me.

My life can be a mess, attacks can come left and right, but I know no matter what nonsense comes my way, no powers or principalities can stop me or keep me from God! I will stand firm in Christ, the rock of my life, the firm foundation! Go ahead and bring it because my God is with me.I will keep praising, I will keep living for You. It doesn't matter what trials have come my way, You are greater, You are stronger. The mention of Your name can make the seas roar, Your very breath can snap his neck in two. That is God I believe and trust in, a God of POWER! I pray for encouragement not only for myself but for all of you reading. I know I am not the only one dealing with tough times, that is amidst a storm; but I encourage you, stop and PRAISE HIM! He is with you!

Daniel 10:19
And he said, "O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!" 
So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, "Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me."

Psalm 94:19 
In the multitude of my anxieties within me,Your comforts delight my soul.

John 16:33
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
