Someone named “Bella Estrella” sent this to my gmail account. I’ve no idea who she is, but what she sent was beautiful… I marked those phrases that struck me most.
Pages of life
“You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed” – Psalm
God has already recorded every part of your life from the beginning to the end. He knows every disappointment, every loss, every challenge; and the good news is that your story ends in success. God has written out a plan to bless and prosper you. Your final chapter concludes with you fulfilling your God-given destiny. Here’s the key: when you go through a disappointment, when you go through a loss, don’t stop on that page in your life. You’ve got to decide to keep moving forward. There’s another chapter in front of you, but you’ve got to be willing to take the next step. Sometimes, we get so focused on what didn’t work out that we stay stuck, reliving the disappointment.
Don't stay in. Jump out!
If that’s you, recognize that you’ve been on that page long enough. It’s time to let it go and turn the page to the new chapter God has in store. You may not understand, it may not have been fair, but the next chapter is full of blessing, full of favor, and full of victory. Make the decision to let go of the old so you can move forward into the abundant life. God bless you !
His mercies are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness, o Lord!
I love the line “…recognize that you’ve been on that page long enough. It’s time to let go…”
When we feel stuck or defeated by a situation, or even a person, it happens because we allow ourselves to be brought down by that situation. Its so easy to take on the attitude of self-pity and plunk yourself into that quagmire of hurt and defeat.
But knowing, with a quiet reassurance AND expectant faith, that God’s next chapter for you will be a truly blessed on, is something that gives one inner strength and courage to get up and GO!
Thank You, Lord for inspiring me again today.
God is so good, all the time!
