I first want to say thank you for taking the time to begin another journey with me. As always, it is my intent to utilize the next 31 days as an attempt to Restart or refocus on several different areas of my life. First, is my daily devotion and second my writing/creative side.
I have a schedule in mind however, I am open to the Holy Spirit if He decides to do something else. For example, I planned to open up with a big video and possible give away HOWEVER, life events over the weekend prevented me from doing such. In fact, the impact over this weekend was so tough that I was reconsidering even doing the Restart this year. Before I could get a prayer out to the Lord, I heard Him say, “Why?” My response of course was, “Lord? Why what?”
“Why Quit?” was His words to me.
There is a saying the world says, “When the going gets tough the tough gets going!”
As Believers we have to stop expecting things to be easy and without a Spiritual fight! ANYTHING that we are doing to Glorify God in our Lives will ALWAYS get fought against by the enemy.
Expect It! Deal with It! & Move On!
Life is full of obstacles and things that we must go through. These things we experience comes in cycles. God’s Word puts it like this:
Ecclesiastes 3 (HCSB)
The Mystery of Time
3 There is an occasion for everything,
and a time for every activity under heaven:(A)
2 a time to give birth and a time to die;(B)
a time to plant and a time to uproot;[a]
3 a time to kill and a time to heal;
a time to tear down and a time to build;
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh;(C)
a time to mourn and a time to dance;(D)
5 a time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;(E)
a time to embrace and a time to avoid embracing;(F)
6 a time to search and a time to count as lost;
a time to keep and a time to throw away;
7 a time to tear and a time to sew;
a time to be silent and a time to speak;(G)
8 a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.(H)
9 What does the worker gain from his struggles?(I) 10 I have seen the task that God has given people to keep them occupied.(J) 11 He has made everything appropriate[b] in its time.(K) He has also put eternity in their hearts,[c] but man cannot discover the work God has done from beginning to end.(L) 12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and enjoy the[d] good life. 13 It is also the gift of God whenever anyone eats, drinks, and enjoys all his efforts.(M)14 I know that all God does will last forever; there is no adding to it or taking from it.(N) God works so that people will be in awe of Him.(O) 15 Whatever is, has already been,(P) and whatever will be, already is. God repeats what has passed.
So the lesson in Day ONE – Find whatever season you are in & Keep Moving!
Don’t allow the attacks of the enemy coming through people (including yourself) or circumstances get you off focus!
Until Next Time… Bask In His Presence & Remain Focused and Faithful!
